  1. "Didn't you known the Denver is just better? I mean if you can't agree with that than you have been fooled by the media and are delusional." That has been passed around here a few times here by supposed "realists." looking at the season stats, both Panthers and Broncos benefited from playing bad teams. But the stats show that if you keep runnignon Denver's vaunted D, you score points. And who is the better running team akin this game? Yeah... Run the ball, play good defense l, control the clock. Denver Will win if they score more points.
  2. If course Denver did well against the run. Their opponets were average 207th in the league. If an opponent ran At least 23 Times this season, they tended to average more than 20 points. Denver is a good team, but they match up poorly versus the Panthers. Assuming both teams play their best games on Sunday, I believe the Panthers will win. Denver can wreck you with the pass rush, but they have trouble against good running teams. I understand but disagree with your opinions. And as you defined yourself in another thread as basically a troll, if the shoe fits, then it does.
  3. Looking for a tablet to replace my computer

    Looking at the 4th Generation if i Series processors, so long as you get and i5 or i7, you'll be good for any basic video editing. For a while I had a work laptop with an i5 and the HD4000 chipet.  The 4600 is a good bit better and the Iris Pro is pretty close to an entry level Mobile Card (like the Nvidia 840m).  I ran full adobe creative cloud premiere, after effects, illustrator, photoshop, etc on it (though not at the same time because I only had 4 GB of ram).  I was able to have Premier roll up at 5:00, 1080p video fairly well.  I mean, my machine wasn't a blazing fast machine by any stretch! Good luck and happy tablet shopping!  
  4. Looking for a tablet to replace my computer

    I'm a Surface fan.  I like windows 10.  I want one, but I'm saving my money for something else. Do you need a windows tablet?  Or there are several other android tablets which are pretty good, as is the ipad.  For simple video editing, check out Adobe Premiere Clip.  It works on multiple platforms and is pretty easy to get to use.  Plus it integrates with adobe creative cloud, if that's your thing.
  5. I wish I could go to SB50 for free, too

    Now the stadium funding vote, I agree.  Why not send a member of council who voted for the stadium funds?  A real fan =)
  6. I wish I could go to SB50 for free, too

    Don't you when you pay her salary?  Also, she is acting as a representative of Charlotte for whatever things the city wants to try to be a part of during the time.  That will be the by line in the budget. I don't disagree that I wish I could go for free, but on the flip side, this happens ALL the time in politics.  $5,100 is small change compared to some of the crazy stuff that happens out there.
  7. I wish I could go to SB50 for free, too

    Get elected =) And $5,100 for the city of Charlotte is a relative drop in the bucket...  Also, cities and towns do this crap all the time, sending people to look at water systems in Canada, or transportation in China, call it a perk of the office..
  8. So I made a little chart of how Denver's D fared against the run this season.  For each team, I posted their season ranking in rushing offense.  There are some interesting observations that can be made from it.  I posted about it in the "What Broncos Fans are saying." What can y'all see...
  9. What Broncos Fans Are Saying

    You how they say, stats are over rated, I took a bit of time to make a spreadsheet of how the Denver D faired in the running game this season.  I took each game, took the regular season NFL.com rushing offense rating for each team, their basic rushing stats (att/yards/avg/TD) and looked at the T/O differential as well. Did you know the average rushing ranking for the 16 regular season games was 20th?  Or that when Denver's opponents ran the ball more than 28 times, they averaged 23.3 points in those games?  3/4 Of Denver's losses occurred when teams ran at least 23 times?  Now, I went really general in looking at the stats, I didn't go too crazy tracing time of possession or anything like that. So do you blame Denver for beating up and holding up the run on bad teams?  Nope, they did their job.  Do you beat up the Panthers for playing the schedule they were given?  Nope.  All statics are misleading and leading in that people can turn the numbers anyway they see fit, like what I did.  That's also why there are those crazy stat junkie sites as well who take into effect the "effect" of a given team on another's perceive success. It's very fair to say that we will be the best running team Denver's faced.  It's fair to expect some running success against their D.  It's also completely realistic that Denver could have the game of their lives against our running game and forced Cam to beat them.  Like how Pittsburgh won in week 15. Fans can feel confident in their teams, that's why they are fans.  But there are some numbers out there which make us Carolina fans feel pretty good about our team as well.
  10. How Thomas Davis is protecting his arm

    I can't believe y'all!  Sheesh! =P TD is a representation of the WILL of this team...how can our guys not be inspired by a man who is literally playing with a broken arm?  Who needs a disrespect card?  We have the Bionic Man card!  (now someone can make a CCG comment!)
  11. How Thomas Davis is protecting his arm

    Overall, I have been extremely impressed with all the cool stuff that 3D printing can do.  
  12. As he said in the "What Broncos fans are saying" thread, he's a guy who just watches football, flipping channels, and who doesn't care about the outcome.  So a troll.  Though he will tell us we are all blind because we aren't realistic, or as knowledgeable as him. I would love to see his thoughts on how well Denver did against the top 10 rushing teams they played.  
  13. http://www.cnet.com/news/injured-football-player-may-wear-3d-printed-brace-in-super-bowl/ So, this is pretty cool!  Could 3D printing be the wave of the future for new safety equipment.
  14. I'll just leave this here

    I thought MJD was a bit off.  I think even the most ardent (and reasonable) Denver fan doesn't think they'll score that much on us.  We would basically have to sit down and not play for that to happen.  Or everyone gets hurt in the first drive.  Or Payton Manning goes Super Sajian...  Or the Panthers get food poisoning and have the runs all game.... I just don't see the Bronco's being able to score that much.  Sure, they will probably move the ball, but once they get to the red zone, with those tight windows, it's going to be much harder unless we play like complete dog poo. Again, it comes down to game planning, coaching and execution.
  15. Review of the Broncos' Last Two Games

    It's going to come down to how well they stop the our run early.  If we struggle to run and get in longer down and distances, then we're in for a long day.  If we can keep them honest with the run, then I think it makes winning all the more possible. We all know Payton's arm will be an issue.  I also think the whole legacy, last real shot at a SB is going to be major factor in the over all Denver game plan.  That will either give them a tremendous sense of motivation or will cause them to force some issues and make mistakes.
