The problem with Denver is that they hired John Fox. They are getting ready to get the "it is what it is" treatment. They also better get used to 3rd and long draw plays because Fox doesn't believe in risking too much anywhere on the field. They also better get used to the worst clock management in the NFL, bar none. He is horrifically bad. Just stupid. And his red flag percentage is a joke. I hope the door did hit his a$$ on the way out...hard!Alpe d'Huez said:I don't care who they played, or if he has a mediocre season after this, that was one hell of a performance by Newton. All the criticisms against him, all of them, turned out to be bunk. People saying he could only really run, that he had poor accuracy, that he wasn't smart enough to make key, fast decisions, that he wasn't a true leader. There were even some people saying he would be a bust and barely be better than JaMarcus Russell. He completely blew all of those out the water and was the NFL player of the week, even in a losing cause if you ask me. It took Aaron Rogers a couple years to adapt his style from college to the pros. A lot of people think Tim Tebow will never be able to do it as so far he hasn't been able to at all. Newton did that in one game. One game!
In tonight's games I think the Broncos will beat the Raiders in a close game, and I think the Patriots-Dolphins game will be closer than people expect.
Chiefs all-pro safety Eric Berry was injured in the 1Q of their blowout loss to the Bills and is out for the season with a torn ACL. Huge loss for them.
