Wendy"s Broncos
« on: November 22, 2006, 07:05:06 AM »
Wendy:

Could not resist putting in a little brag here.  The ESPN Power Rankings just came out for NFL Football for week 12.

Broncs slipped from 4th to 7th.  Ravens moved from 5th to 4th to take over the Broncos former ranking. 

The real surprise is that the Chargers vaulted over the Colts and bears to gain number one!  How can this be?  The Raven beat the chargers earlier this year!

The real puzzle is this.  The Ravens beat the Charger so they are better than the Chargers.  the Chargers beat the Broncos so they are better than the Broncos.  But the Broncos beat the Ravens so are they better than the Ravens?  An interesting puzzle.  Like they say, "On any given Sunday."

Your team has a tough game this week against Kansas City.  They are ranked 10th below Denver, but moving up fast.

My Ravens have a tough one also, last year's Superbowl champs.  Pittsburgh is only ranked 15th now, but they are the arch rivals of the Ravens and are an angry team with a lot to prove.  I am glad it is a home game.

It would not surprise me that by the time we meet in QZ, that the Ravens and Broncos will be battling it out in a playoff.   :D

At least the Packers and Bears play football as it was intended to be played, outdoors and on grass :)  No woosie covered stadiums for REAL teams.

Shayne:

It is obvious you are not watching the NFL this year.   ;D

Ned, you can add Ravens to real teams.  No roof, and real turf.

Bernie, the bears will have to earn their capital letter by playing some tough teams.

Ain't football wonderful?  Best sport around for trash talkin!   ;D

I have asked my Brit friends about this before, and have not gotten a real answer.   Maybe you can do better.

Why in the name of sweetness and light, would the English want another nation of foreigners to beat them at a sport the English invented?   ;D

Paul,

Soccer is largely a girls game here in the U.S. Nothing like the Euro leagues.

BTW did you see my post re the Setanta Sports channel? I've had it activated only a few days and have already seen a couple of rugby internationals and a club game (Bath/Bristol). The All Blacks gave France a hammering and your home country barely missed their 8th defeat in a row against the Springboks. My DVR is working overtime, but it's not recording soccer  :)

Carl,

With more countries playing soccer it allows us to play even more games - in the hope that if we play more, we may just win one.  ;D

It also gives us more opportunity to say "could this be a team to match the success of 1966" (the one time we won the World Cup).


Tom,

I saw the thread, and decided to stay quiet.  ;D

Da Bears beat the Seahawks when they were top rated by ESPN. They beat the Giants who had the second best record in the NFC. Can't you just admit Da Bears have a good team ??? :D ???

Only mortal I know of who could walk on water! One of the Packers once said that when Coach Lombardi (you never called him Vince) told the players to sit down, you didn't waste time looking for a chair.

Ned:

I agree.

I once had Colt tickets on the 40 yard line and was a member of the Colt Corral.  I even once got paychecks singed by Johnny Unitas.  Many personal stories to share about him.  He was as good a guy in person as he was on the field.  Hard to find that any more, though Bret on your team is one of them.

But whats a guy gonna do? We had a disfunctional owner who stole our team in the middle of the night in a snow storm. We have to make do, and the Ravens are as good a way to go as any.  At least the Ravens have the original NFL bloodline (just as the Indianapolis Colts have) by being one of the three teams who moved from the old NFL into the newcomer AFC (Pittsburgh, Cleveland - now Baltimore, and Baltimore - now Indianapolis).  I am amazed that young people do not know this.  I won a big bet from my stepson on both the Ravens and the Colts being original NFL teams.   ;D

Bernie - the Seahawks are of no consequence nor are the Giants.  I do agree that the Bears are the best the NFC has to offer this year if that is any consolation.

Also the Cardinals being the oldest team in football predating the NFL by about 25 years, going back to 1898 and that is was the Chicago Cardinals until they moved to St. Louis.

I did know the Cardinals started in Chicago.  The Packers are one of the few teams that hasn't ever moved, and they never will.  They're also the only publicly owned team in the NFL.

Wow, that is cool about being publicly owned.  Can the public who owns the stock vote out a coach or general manager if they don't like him or her?

Nope, no more so than the stockholders can in any corporation.  Most stockholders own just a few shares, but there are lots of them :)  They use Lambeau Field for the annual meeting.

I remember reading somewhere that the NFL bars corporate ownership, mandating instead single ownership as in Al Davis.   Green Bay is the sole exception to the rule and got its exemption based on its history.
