Welcome to February! Just another gorgeous day in Colorado! The sky is blue and the sun is shining.
I watched the superbowl yesterday and thought that the game itself was a good one. I didn’t see a single ad that impressed me. The halftime show was nothing special either. But the last two minutes of the game made up for everything else that was lacking! There was that amazing and unlikely catch by the seahawks receiver, and then the terrible call to pass on second and goal with 18 seconds to go. I get that the line was stacked, but come on. Really? You have Marshawn Lynch – probably the best running back in the NFL, and you’re playing a secondary that has been in your face all night. The ball is intercepted, and miraculously, because they’re in the end zone, Brady can’t kneel on it. So what do you do? That’s right, you encroach, giving Brady and the Patriots the 5 yards they need to just kneel on it, and eliminate any chance you have of a miraculous turnover to win it. Way to choke Seattle! I don’t like the Patriots, but I guess they deserved the win more. I just pains me to see Brady’s smug face and Bellichick’s with the Lombardi trophy.

Now that the Superbowl is over, the offseason is ready to roll. It will be interesting to see what the Denver Broncos are able to do this year under the coaching of Gary Kubiak. Hope it’s better than last year.
Admittedly, I was not a big fan of bringing Gary in. Yes, he and Elway go back a long way, but I don’t think that he’s that great. Look at his performance in Houston. Despite all kinds of talent, Arian Foster, JJ Watt, etc. they seemed to never hit full stride. I think that’s a coaching problem. I could be wrong – I hope I am, because Payton Manning has maybe 1 good year left. I’d like to see him get another superbowl, and more importantly, I’d like to see the Broncose get another superbowl. Unfortunately, Denver is built for short term success – they don’t seem to have done much to ensure long term success. The un-tested Brock Osweiler could be good, but just hasn’t seen enough playing time. Lots of free agents and veterans. We’ll see what happens, I guess.
Until next time,
