"Since I’m not a blind follower of the Denver Broncos, I needed my faith to be renewed a wee bit by a game like this. And that faith was refilled like sweet berry wine in a golden chalice as they grabbed firm control of the division and sat down in the driver seat of the entire AFC."
Reidy has been getting sacked lately in the South Stands annual NFL pickoff VS the spread. Can he pick himself up, dust himself off and get back in the game the way that our buddy Snyder has?
Here's how the fellows see it going down this week.

Our annual NFL pickoff VS the spread rolls on and our Buddy Snyder who got off to a rough start is beginning to make some serious noise. Over the past four weeks Snyder has elevated himself from a distant fourth place among our four pickers to a rising third. He now holds a five pick lead over John Reidy who is languishing.
In week thirteen Snyder went 10-6 against the spread, by far the best of all of us. I managed to go 8-8 while Scott Stafford and Reidy each produced 6-10 records.
For the season I still hold the lead with a record of 96-87-8, not quite good enough to beat the vig in Vegas. Scott is right behind me at 93-90-8. Snyder is has risen to 85-98-8 and Reidy has fallen to 80-103-8. That's not good.
Video: Because he’s underexposed, ESPN allowed Ron Burgundy to interview Peyton Manning, the succulent baby lamb.Written by Colin Daniels Wednesday, 04 December 2013 12:04
In case you were unaware, the “Anchorman” franchise is returning with a new movie soon. Since the release of the new film has been terribly under-publicized, the producers sent their star character to Bristol for a little face time in the ESPN studios.
Here’s Ron Burgundy interviewing Peyton Manning.
"There are personalities in the Denver media that actually hold Colorado fans responsible for the inability of the Rockies to improve. If fans didn’t continue to attend games, they say, the Monforts would stop getting rich and would be forced to do things differently. Nothing short of a fan revolt can fix things."

The incredible Brandon Perna (@brandonperna) is back and he's not only drunk on red wine, he's high on a HUGE Broncos win over the Chiefs.
There's nothing better than gloating along with Brandon after a victory. We hope you have been enjoying his weekly videos as much as we have.
Columnist Dave Krieger left the Denver Post for a full-time gig at KOA back in 2012. It’s hard to blame him, considering the shakiness in the news biz these days. He’s still writing, though. Krieger keeps his own Wordpress site titled “Blitz Krieg” where he publishes one fantastic piece after another. Krieger is a hell of a columnist and he’s also a master interviewer. His talent for extracting interesting material from his subjects makes his blog one of the better reads out there when it comes to Denver sports. One interview subject topped them all, though. Krieger recently sat down for “breakfast with George Karl” and wound up penning an eye-opening piece based on the unfettered answers Karl gave to his questions.
There’s not much doubt that it was George’s time to go when he was canned in the wake of last season. Still, reading Krieger’s article makes it tough not to miss his forthrightness. In it Karl is brutally honest about the Nuggets then and now, Javale McGee, Andre Iguodala, ESPN and more. It’s the most insightful interview you’ll read all year.
"The national anthem gets me every single time and it should do the same for everyone within earshot, especially at a sporting event. The freedoms and rights that we have as Americans should never be taken lightly, especially our ability to go after our dreams. The emotion that comes along with that song is heightened on such a big stage, whether you are a spectator in the stands or an athlete down on that field."
Knowshon Moreno might be the emotional leader of the 2013 Denver Broncos. It's sure as heck not the Snowman who spends a fair amount of his time wearing a scowl these days.
Moreno is playing with heart - and with that comes powerful emotions. Those were on display yesterday during the National Anthem at Arrowhead, the stadium at which Moreno tore his ACL on November 13, 2011. He probably feared then that his career was over. Instead, he's among the league leaders in rushing in 2013.
It's still fun to poke a little fun at him - which the maker of this video has done nicely.
"Now is not the time to be overly analytical or for that matter terribly critical. There will be time enough for that later. The next month of Sundays is a time to relish what we have - a record setting team with an offense that will go down in the annals of Denver Broncos history. Let’s enjoy it."

"I predicted a loss for the Blue and Orange on the road last week and sadly I was right. But this week I feel a whole lot differently. The Broncos know what's at stake in this huge divisional clash. They are going to look like the juggernaut team we were all spoiled by earlier in the season."

"There would be widespread revolt in Colorado if any owner not named Monfort said such a ridiculous thing. Sadly, when it comes to Colorado's baseball club what Monfort said is not ridiculous at all. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy."

"They’re selling dirt. If the Monforts had any shame, they’d throw in a rack of ribs, but since they are soulless vampires, draining the good people of Colorado dry, you can pay $30 for some dirt."
We have been having a great time picking every NFL game VS the spread this season. A couple of our pickmasters are above .500. I couple of others aren't. We've seen a few lead changes and things have tightened up a bit recently.
The contest in entering its stretch run, although we intend to pick right through the Super Bowl.
Here's how we see the games unfolding in week thirteen
" Did it destroy the team? Not really. The team was already imploding due to Lacroix’s inability to navigate the salary cap and to generally pull his head out of his ass. The trade didn’t help, but now Erik Johnson is starting to play up to his potential of the number one overall pick and the team is on the upswing. The only problem is, the Blues are on an upswing too."
"The guy the Broncos have hitched their wagon to can’t play when it’s cold outside. And guess what? It’s cold outside during the playoffs. Manning’s struggles in frigid temps are plenty well documented. So how can the Broncos count on their twenty-million dollar man when it matters most? The answer is shockingly simple"

Molson Coors is selling its 15% stake in the Colorado Rockies according to Sports Business Journal.
The buyer is Arizona developer Jay Stein who had previously been involved with the ownership group that controlled the Padres and has since sold. It is estimated that his new stake will cost him somewhere in the neighborhood of $75M, just shy of the reported $80M in debt the Rockies currently hold.
The Denver Post recently sold its stake in the Rox. Now Coors, which has been a partner since inception, is doing the same. One has to wonder if these divestitures have anything at all to do with Monforts and a reluctance to be associated with them - or if these have been purely financial decisions.
Either way, it's worth speculating whether the Monforts themselves may eventually sell. It's something Rox fans would love to see happen. Dick and Charlie have no idea what they're doing. Stein may have the contacts to put a buying group together that could finally take the Monfort Brothers out.
The naming rights agreement that Coors has will not change. Fans will not be flocking to Sports Authority Park anytime soon.
"Bronco fans, it’s time to put away the break-up music, take off the sweats and get back out there. It was one game that most likely has no ramifications on the rest of the season. The Broncos are a very talented football team, especially in comparison with the majority of the teams in the current NFL."
"The Broncos appear to be minimizing concerns regarding head injuries and hastening players' return to play by seeing that they undergo as little testing and monitoring as they can possibly get away with."

I never really liked sports until I had a religious conversion when the Broncos lost to the 49ers in that one Super Bowl. Now I'm obsessed with all aspects of the Denver pro sports world. Oh yeah, I hate college football. It's crap. Talk to me on twitter @johnreidydenver
