FYTB – Broncos vs Patriots Recap

[YouTubeUlar] <— 1076

“In what could have been his last game in the Mile High City Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos toppled Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in a defensive slugfest 20-18.

Tom Brady threw two interceptions on the day to Von Miller and Darian Stewart. The Denver Defense hit Brady all game long, and Terrific Tom only found the end-zone once late in the game to Rob Gronkwoski. Manning threw 2 touchdown passes to Owen Daniels, and for the second game in a row threw zero interceptions.

The Broncos will face the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50, and will be led by DeMarcus Ware and the Denver D.”

Amanda Capper — on Tim Tebow

Question: Ms Capper whats your take on your star QB Tim Tebow?!

“Amanda Capper Well . . . . long take to short: I’m a bronco fan. All ways. If we’re winning, we’re winning. I believe he’s shown he has the ability to progress which is about as important as it gets in terms of developing the style of collegiate ball he played/plays. He’s got to throw the ball, no doubt about it. Last week, his passing looked the best so far in my opinion and it’ll open up our offense tremendously if he finds more targets than Decker and Thomas. His awareness in the pocket is incredible to watch and his athletic ability is undeniable. I think his will to win is infectious in a way I’ve never seen. I’d like to see what he does for a season or two, hoping Elway takes him under his wing because, honestly, there’d be no better ‘coach/mentor’ from a QB standpoint. I haven’t gone out and purchased a #15 jersey yet but I’m happy to see him in orange and blue. We can easily win out with only one away game in Buffalo……we’ll have to wait and see how the man continues to lead us ♥♥♥”

RIP – Barrel Man


December 24th, 2005 - Barrel Man + Hydle

His name was Tim McKernan. He took a $10 bet from his brother in 1977 that he wouldn’t wear a barrel to Denver Broncos football game. 30 years and 22 different barrels later, Tim finally retired from his superfan role as “The Barrel Man” in 2007.

Friday, at the age of 69, Tim McKernan lost his battle with an inoperable respiratory disease.

Dear barrel man – I salute you.

Tyler’s 8 Day Bender – Day #2

IMG_2058Day number two of the 8 day bender … Tyler finds himself in no other then his hometown of Boulder, CO.

I couldn’t get a hefty response out of him which could be directly related to the outcome of the CU vs CSU football game.

But talking to him briefly on the phone – I can easily tell day 3 is going to hurt.

Good luck sir.
