Daly Doses: Thoughts, reflections, and derision from the Mile High City!

Doses

  • We are entering what I think is the most beautiful time of the year here in Denver.
  • The leaves are turning from green to gold. The days are warm. The nights are cool.
  • The Denver Broncos are in full swing.
  • And we don’t have to watch the Colorado Rockies much longer.
  • Ahh yes, there is nothing like fall in the Mile High City.
  • Did you hear there is going to be an ESPN 30 for 30 profiling former University of Colorado football coach Bill McCartney?
  • McCartney has some controversial views, but he was the man that was solely responsible for bringing about one of the greatest eras in Colorado collegiate football history.
  • And by “one of” I mean “the only” significant era in Colorado collegiate football history.
  • Decades and decades of 6-5 don’t really count as “significant”. Sorry.
  • The Broncos are now 3-0 but I keep hearing the experts saying that the Broncos can’t possibly win with Peyton Manning at the helm.
  • “He is too old and he looks to be in constant pain when he throws the ball.”
  • They might be right.
  • Of course they are the same people telling us that Colin Kaepernick and Ryan Tannehill were the future of NFL quarterbacking.
  • And forgive me for my skepticism but I saw Trent Dilfer, Brad Johnson, and Mark Rypien win Super Bowls.
  • Don’t tell me it can’t happen.
  • And this defense is good.
  • Speaking of things that don’t make sense.
  • I guess I could go all kinds of different places in the sports world with that segue, couldn’t I?
  • But I was referring to the Chicago Bears facing the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
  • Former Broncos coach John Fox had his Bears “really battling” against the NFC Champs from the past two seasons.
  • The undermanned Bears finally succumbed 26-0.
  • Except, they didn’t even try to compete.
  • The Bears had 10 possessions in the game. They punted all 10 times.
  • They finished with 146 total yards.
  • They had no intention of winning.
  • They were simply in a battle to run out the clock and finish the game.
  • Good to see John Fox recycling his old gameplan from last season when the Broncos faced the Colts.
