Demaryius Thomas managed to set the Super Bowl record for receptions, despite sustaining a separated shoulder in the first quarter. -SBNation.com
Ok, so this story about D. Thomas playing through most of the Super Bowl with a separated shoulder is just starting to gain steam on the interment, and while the feat is a testament to the mental and physical toughness of this tremendous athlete I need to set the record straight.
He didn’t throw himself off a steel cage and through a table to separate the shoulder, and then, after fighting his way off a stretcher, climb back to the top of the cage (fucked up shoulder and all) to get choke slammed through the cage onto his back. He just didn’t. Apples and oranges. This might be the only spot in WWE history that Vince had no part of that made the show BETTER…….Who am I kidding, Vince knows everything.
All I have to say is thank God for Broadway Joe. If he and his fur coat didn’t show up last night then this already horrible Superbowl would have been that much worse. I’m sure Seahawks fans were ecstatic, but as a casual fan that Superbowl sucked. You knew who was going to win 12 seconds into the game. Joe even tried to hijack the coin toss because he knew how terrible the game was going to be. Peyton Manning and the Broncos got their asses handed to them, and never even tried to put up a fight. All I know after this game is that Joe Namath has a beautiful fashion sense and as much as it pains me to say it, the Seahawks are far and away the best team in football. Damn it all.
You know it’s on when the mascots are getting involved! The Monday after the Super Bowl should be a holiday. I will take the sentiment to my grave.
PS- Apparently people in the UK aren’t as excited as I am
It has all come down to this! #1 seed vs #1 seed, best vs best, a power house defense, vs arguably the best offense to ever grace a football field. This is the type of Super Bowl we wish for every year. BUT, while the headlines read “Broncos vs Seahawks”, I see something very different.
Papa John vs Richard Sherman
Behind ever successful quarterback there is an evil genius. Troy Aikman? Jerry Jones. Tom Brady? The Hooded One. Peyton Manning? ……Papa John. Papa John is the evil genius whose Idea it was to bring Peyton to Denver in the first place. (or so I speculate) Together they have pretty much monopolized Pizza and scoring touchdowns. But they have a weakness…
Which Brings me to my next point. Sherman, if you’re reading this, I know Papa Johns weakness. Just send him a case of beer and tickets to see Louisville. Self implosion time!
Primetime, Beast Mode, Megatron, Hollywood Joe, and Sweetness. All good nicknames given to some of the greats over the years, but those alter egos don’t even hold a candle to Terrence Knighton’s nickname.
While watching Sunday football I heard Phil Simms call the Broncos D-Tacke, after an interception, “Pot Roast”. I nearly fell out of my chair with jealousy. Like could this guy have hit the jackpot any harder? What an awesome nickname, and honestly one that fits Terrence perfectly.
After doing some research (first time ever) I found out that he was dubbed the nickname by teammates in Jacksonville after ordering Pot Roast on an airplane. Power order, Terrence.
If I was Terrence I would have the Broncos start selling #94 jerseys with “Pot Roast” on the back. Hell, I would buy 2!
Home and away.
I don’t know why this is hilarious, but it just is. Peyton Manning is the king of unintentional comedy.
I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for a coordinator to become an interim head coach. Then again, it’s not everyday that someone with Jack Del Rio’s sense of style is given this opportunity. You have to figure that the camera’s will pan to Del Rio at least 20 times Sunday, so if he wears the wrong outfit Denver might just fire him on the spot. I’d go with the dress shirt and tie, but instead of a sport coat, I’d throw on an official Denver Broncos leather jacket. It’s already a given that Denver will beat San Diego on the road, so the only thing left to focus on is Jack Del Rio’s wardrobe. I have a feeling he’s going to blow us all away.
P.S. There’s a 90% chance Del Rio refuses to give John Fox his job back. He’s the ultimate wildcard.
The Broncos Running Backs Played “Rock, Paper, Scissors” to See Who Would Get to Punch It In The End Zone
According to Bleacher Report Ronnie Hillman, Knowshon Moreno and Montee Ball gathered on the sidelines while waiting for a referee’s decision and played the childhood school yard (and dodge beer) game, rock, paper, scissors. As a fantasy owner I am outraged! But, as a huge fan of the NFL I am pleased to see a moment of lighthearted and innocent play. Put aside the massive amounts of fines being dished out every week and just enjoy the sport for moments like this.
PS- Hillman won with scissors after Moreno threw rock early (and was disqualified) and Ball thew paper.
