Good Morning, MHR Friends. I mentioned this in my FanPost yesterday, but I'll repeat it here. The Broncos have been 32-31 with zero playoff appearances since their vaunted 2006 Draft Class came in. Why exactly do we need to keep this "young nucleus" together if they haven't proven they can even get us to the postseason, much less win a playoff game? Because they put up big numbers? Because they're great to have on your fantasy football team? Now, try to smile. We've got a chance to make the playoffs tomorrow and a coach who isn't willing to extend the country club-, me-first culture that seems to have infiltrated Dove Valley in recent years.
DB - Week 17 - Fri: McDaniels - Broncos TV
"We want the guys on the field that are dying to play as hard as they can play, with whatever, to try to get us in the playoffs. That's what we're looking for."
Just listen to these reporters/columnists and their questions. You probably know their voices from hearing them on the radio or seeing them on TV. Listen to McDaniels try to answer the same stupid questions asked 5 different ways from the same people and tell me what's going on there. To me, it's like they think they're part of the show - as if this is their chance to be on PTI or Around The Horn. It's Josh McDaniels' presser, folks. Not yours.
DB - Marshall Deactivated for Week 17 - Chris Gentilviso
"If Royal cannot go, McDaniels added that Matthew Willis would be signed from the team’s practice squad to the active roster. Darrell Reid (knee), Correll Buckhalter (ankle), Brian Dawkins (knee), Renaldo Hill (ankle), Ty Law (hamstring), and Spencer Larsen (hamstring) were all full participants on Friday. Each is listed as probable."

You'll NEVER guess what Dukes and Woodson have to say about this situation. Okay, just kidding. You know EXACTLY what they have to say.
