You would never know that because they played ads over the final band with Dave Grohl, Lindsey Buckingham, and an extremely overrated Trent Reznor who repeated the same 5 words over and over.

 

Don't want to get into an argument or get off topic, but Trent Reznor is one of the most creative artist of all time.

Well most prolly do cause big burly guys screaming there head off at a football game don't jam in there cars to Bruno Mars or Madonna lol

 

it's always something.  People complained about the Who as well.  I was at that game, the show was awesome

TV isn't as good I don't think

 

People complained about Black Eyed Peas and I thought they were great.

 

Bruno Mars is cool. He's kind of a throw back artist.

 

He does sing about love though so, I can see guys not liking him.

 

You have to admit, he has a great voice and is really talented

I'm from Australia and the sport i follow over here NRL (Rugby League) always have the most ridiculous acts for our Grand Final, there are 84,000 thousand fans and millions at home (one of the highest rating shows of the year, every year) and we get pop acts, no-one understands! We want them to splurge and get Foo Fighters or something considering it isn't some small event, like you said it's gladiatorial and we get some boppy pop song........it makes no sense!

I actually like Mars and he seemed like a pretty good kid when they interviewed him on NFLN. One thing's for sure, the age of the classic rock band half time shows has pretty much passed.

 

Just the thought of Mick Jagger running around a stage in wrestling tights, at 70 years old, would have me reaching for the remote real quick.

So Holliday returns it from the back of the end zone

 

C snapping before Peyton's even ready

 

Seahawks are pretty much finding space for their new, shiny Lombardi in their front office now

3rd and 9 and they let up a first down.

 

Good to know the Broncos lost this before I changed the channel to this game.

There you go, keep trying those 2 yard passes to beat the Seahawks.

 

Time for Wilson to blow down the field for the game sealing drive.

Lets up a 3rd and 8, and then fails to tackle the next play.

 

So, did Denver think the Super Bowl was last week or something?

This is beginning to resemble one of those "keep away from Peyton" games....and they generally don't end well.

    • Well, I appreciate you straightening out the information.  That still isn't the number of possible schedules, it's just the number they created based on the financial needs mixed with the venue availability issues and other stuff.   There are some horrendous schedules for certain teams out there.  Whatever human intervention took place, they clearly didn't care about screwing teams.  Oakland and Tampa got it the worst and it was needless.  But money is all that matters, not the health of the players or fairness of competition.  That much is clear.  
    • I didn't suggest anything. I'm just saying that by applying you logic to everyone on the roster, we shouldn't need to upgrade anything. Or does that just hold true to WR?
    • Simple.  It means we need to continue to look elsewhere for someone ready to play out of the box.  Someone who shines, even if its just as a rookie.  I would suggest the draft and we hope that Cain's brief spark before injury was more than fools gold.  Johnson and Paschal had brief moments where they appeared capable but certainly were far from Elite talent.  Rogers and the rest of the guys on the roster after Hilton and Funchess seem like cannon fodder for the most part.  We need elite talent.  We need elite speed.  We need elite hands.  We need elite route running.  In essence, we need SOMETHING to be elite about our qualified #2 and #3.  I didn't see anything that suggested "Elite" from any of these guys last year.  Did you? Someone will be #2 even if they're terrible.  There WILL be a #2.  What I think most people hope for is that the #2 has something elite, if not many things elite about their skill set.  Outside of Hilton, that isn't a word that applies to the backups from last year and camp bodies.     Are you going on the record to say we have our full time, long term #2 and eventual #1 when Hilton is gone on the roster?  Who would that be?  And no matter how you answer, using your criteria, what supposed practical value is that supposed to have?     What practical value does my opinion have? At least the same value as any opinion you or anyone else shares.  None of us have power over the team.  The point of a message board is to post opinions and discuss.  You apparently disagree with my statement, so let's hear who our #2 elite talent is among the scrubs? Settling for a #2 without elite talent is what we did last year.  Ryan Grant was devoid of anything elite and it showed.     Questions? 
    • Based on snap counts last year. TE was 1.29, WR 2.56, RB 1.03 So we ran 2 TE sets a little less than a 3rd of the time (likely a lot on early running downs or RZ), 3 WR sets more than half the time, and used only one RB except for a few instances.    A few things to ponder.... How sure are you that DF was signed assumed to be full time starter? By most reports, Cain had locked down the #2 spot last year before he got injured. Do you think Cain was told DF was signed to be the starter? Might he have been signed to provide depth to the unit while Cain gets his form back? Or even while a drafted WR comes on....   Also, as discussed, DF's most successful routes were short to intermediate middle type routes (not X WR routes). Not necessarily perimeter or deep. Do you think the coaches will force fit him into areas where he's had the least success? It's also been discussed that he might find more success as a big or bully slot?   In terms of stretching the field... If you've read up on Reich's offense, there is a lot of talk about "4 vert" or K gun (going back to his own QB days). Yes there is a lot of up tempo quick hits, but there is supposed to be a stretch element too. It's supposed to be multiple formations, multiple plays, all up tempo. 4 vert is just what it sounds like. 4 players going vertical. Not just all short to intermediate. Luck can throw every ball. Not using his vertical talents would be a bit silly, no?   On the whole WR unit, we have literally only one proven guy and that's TY. Potential and talent are great words, but we have only TY that's proven. DF has had his ups and downs, and hopefully he gets it turned around. I love Cain, but he's rehabing and didn't exactly light the world on fire at Clemson. Both he and Renfrow were there in 16 and 17. Cain stayed about the same while Renfrow took a nice step forward.   All the other guys (Pascal, Johnson, Fountain) are projects that we hope might pan out. You mentioned Johnson, and I like his potential too, but he didn't do much at TX, and has been hurt 2 of his 3 NFL years. In short, based on last years stats, not one WR ranked inside the top 80 in yards other than Hilton. It's incredible what Luck did with all the moving parts last year, but he shouldn't have to work this hard.    And you mentioned you'd take a RB early. If we're talking about proven, and also potential... When Mack came back in game 6 IIRC, we were a top 10 rushing team the rest of the year (I think if you normalize, Mack would have been 5th or 6th in yards). We also just drafted Hines who had a very good first year (700+ all purpose yards), and Wilkins who averaged 5.6 yards per carry in back up duty to Mack. Individually, that's much more proven than our WR corp. I would like to have a power back compliment over Williams, but that's in the middle to late rounds.   Not saying we will, or won't take a WR early, but every mock and "needs" board out there has WR in the top 2. Even Colts.com listed WR first in their post FA needs. Of course Ballard will do what he wants, but the overwhelming majority of "experts" out there are saying Indy needs to upgrade WR. 
    • WHERE EXACTLY did I say any of the nonsense you stated above?  Dude, I don't know you but you either have the wrong person or you are simply projecting.  I didn't comment on the 30 allowed visits at all.  I made no pro or con comments of any kind on the topic.  I asked a legit question that I did not know the answer to.  You need to.. uh... relax or something.  It's all in your head!
