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.

Nolan Out Because McDaniels Wanted to Blitz Less Often?

40

According to Ron Borges of the Boston Herald: Less than two weeks after McDaniels acted in a way he would never tolerate from his players - like a petulant child - when he refused to provide his team its best chance to win its final game by benching Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Marshall and tight end Tony Scheffler, he called in defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and told him in no uncertain terms his Broncos would not be blitzing next season like they did this year. The blitz, especially in some run situations, has long been a staple of Nolan’s approach to defense, and it has served him and his teams well. That included McDaniels’ Broncos, who were 29th in the league in defense a year ago but finished seventh this season, their first under Nolan, despite a late-season slide that coincided with a less than brilliant 2-8 finish to McDaniels’ roller coaster first season as a head coach. There will not be a second season of that union because after that meeting Nolan and McDaniels decided what had always been the NFL equivalent of a shotgun marriage - McDaniels hired Nolan at the suggestion of the agent they both share, Bob LaMonte, despite the fact they barely knew each other - had to end. Petulant Child? And suggesting that McDaniels only chose Nolan because of his agent's suggestion is a pretty staggering accusation. What do you think?
