Broncos Continue Winning Ways

It was only a one point win at home, but it was a win at home with an untested quarterback.  The 21-20 win over the defending NFC Champion Carolina Panthers leaves Denver Broncos fans with an optimistic feeling about the prospects of how the 2016 season may turn out.  Graham Gano missed a 50-yard field goal attempt as time was running down as the Broncos got a lucky break on what looked like a seemingly “chip shot” type attempt for Gano, who had earlier remarked that his range was “around 60” tonight in the thin Colorado air.

 

 

The Broncos (1-0) will face the Indianapolis Colts at home next Sunday, while the Carolina Panthers (0-1) will match up against the San Francisco 49ers in Charlotte next Sunday in week 2 of the season.

Seattle Slew!!!!

No, it wasn’t the 1977 Kentucky Derby, it was the 2014 Super Bowl.  However, the 43-8 blowout in which the NFC Champions never trailed began with a shotgun center snap that sailed past Peyton Manning’s head that resulted in a 2-0 Seahawk lead, and the momentum of the game never changed, as the Seahawks cruised to Seattle Slew-esque victory in Super Bowl XLVIII played at East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith received the Most Valuable Player award as he  returned an interception for a touchdown and recovered a fumble, while also making nine tackles as part of a swarming Seahawk defense that held Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in check all afternoon.

Prediction: According to the Roby Ratings for the Seahawks and Broncos, Seattle should be a 4.5 point favorite.  However, it is the opinion of the editor of Shayn Roby College Sports and Shayn Roby Pro Gridiron Report that the experience of quarterback Peyton Manning will win out over the athleticism of the young signal caller Russell Wilson, even though his data driven rating system suggests that the opposite will occur.

Manning will find a way.  Broncos by 1

defensive linemen Robert Ayers and Malik Jackson, along with punter Britton Colquitt (a pedigree name for Vol punters).  In addition, former UT backup quarterback Jim Bob Cooter works with the Broncos’ quarterbacks along with Vols graduate assistant Derius Swinton, who works with special teams on the coaching staff for Denver.  On the opposing side of the field from the Bronco-Vols, defensive lineman Tony McDaniel will play for the Seattle Seahawks.  He will also be joined on the Seattle sideline by former Tennessee Volunteer assistant coach Kippy Brown, who coaches wide receivers for the Seahawks.
