TJ never met a Raiders fan he liked. As a child, watching Broncos games on television, he used to whisper to the monitor, "John Elway is 5 standard deviations above the mean." Since then, he's always taken a statistical view of the NFL. "Stats can lie," he's fond of saying, "but at least they don't lie as bad as Chargers fans." He comes down on the side of the players when it comes to contracts, he's on the side of the owners when it comes to rookie salaries, and he doesn't pick a side when it comes to Tim Tebow. Raised by wolves on the high plains north of Denver, you can still hear him if you listen quietly - howling at spreadsheets in the middle of the night. Known as "The Dude," he has watched the Big Lebowski over 100 times in English. At that point he became a little bored, so he watched it 100 times in Spanish. He has two dogs, two cats and two sons, but his wife isn't about to let him get into the market for a 2nd "special ladyfriend."

TJ is a former writer for Mile High Report, and still digs it.

Tebow's Encore

More analysis of Tebow's throws from last week's game against the Texans, Gators fans. Tebow is turning me into a Gators fan yet! Tebow's Encore

Tebow(etheus) Unbound

Gator Fans, if you love Tim Tebow, we thought you might like seeing a breakdown of every one of his throws last Sunday. Can the guy be a NFL QB. The Answer is that he already is: More here: Tebow(etheus) Unbound

Yoda Digs Tim Tebow

In every good hero's journey, the chosen one must eventually leave his mentor behind in order to face his quest alone. And that sucks. No one wants to leave the comfort and safety of their Jedi Academy. It helps, though, when your mentor wears a hoodie. Ask Luke Skywalker. "Thoughts On The Eve of Tebow."

Josh McDaniels Would Make a Bad Sicilian

My MHR friends, this is something I thought was too good to pass up: Josh McDaniels Would Make a Bad Sicilian I'm done with Josh McDaniels. Not because he's failed to draft any defensive linemen with the 19 picks he's had in the last two years; not because his first meaningful move as coach of the Broncos was to cut the long snapper; not because 33-year old guys throwing down f-bombs on national television fail to motivate grown men in their mid-20s and 30s. I'll even leave the record-setting blowouts aside for the moment. I'm done with him because he apparently hasn't watched any of the Godfather movies. Had he, he would have realized that in the Cosa Nostra of the old sicilian mafia, or, let's face it, in the coaching tree of Bill Belichick, you don't rat out anyone in the "organization." Even if takes a week or more and pressure from league officials. More Here: Josh McDaniels Would Make a Bad Sicilian

5 Things Peter King Didn't Think To Think

Forgive me MHR for indulging occasionally with a fan shot. Sometimes you just want to share stuff that has no analytical value whatsoever. "When you're watching the game on Sunday, you rarely get to hear what the players and coaches are saying. Just what are they thinking? Run the deep post? Send the blitz off the corner? Go no huddle? You're in luck, Broncos fans. The Fat Man microphones catch everything. And we've decided to share. Here's what we caught during last week's game against the Chiefs. Enjoy." http://www.itsalloverfatman.com/broncos/entry/5-things-peter-king-didnt-think-to-think-week-10

The Curse of Brett Kern

I’m not sure about you, but I don’t believe in curses. Which is exactly why we need to remove the current curse that has afflicted our Denver Broncos. Perhaps you’ve hear the folklore by now, but if not, let me bring you up to speed on the legend. Last season, the Broncos started the season 6-0. But they probably didn’t deserve this record. In the opener, they needed a miraculous last-minute tipped touchdown pass from Kyle Orton to Brandon Stokley to pull out the win. In week five against Dallas, Champ Bailey made two miracle plays in the last minute of the game to preserve the victory. But there they were—a glorious 6-0 start. All the little Broncomaniacs were taking their vitamins and falling asleep at night with visions of the playoffs dancing through their heads. It appeared as if rookie head coach Josh McDaniels had been blessed with some outstanding karma. You’d think that he would have taken that karma and retired for a few days to spend time with his family. Instead, he cut the punter.
