B-2 Bomber has arrived…and we are hopeful…

Of course, there’s a LOT of work to get done on the defense…they missed 17 tackles yesterday, 21 last week…MISSED??? How many professional football teams MISS that many tackles???

The “Football Experts” said he’d never play successfully in the NFL.

Right. I’m not going to predict that the Denver Broncos will get to the Super Bowl or anything, but they’re now so far beyond what anyone SAID would be possible with Tim Tebow as quarterback, I’ve decided to stop paying attention to the dumb jocks who pass for experts on tv. What a balls-to-the-wall football […]
