NFL Weekly Picks (Week 4): Broncoboy326 and John Bena Make Their Picks

     In this, our inaugural season of the Readers vs the Staffers Weekly Prognostications, after three weeks, the Readers have taken a commanding five game lead over the staffers. This week, we will look to see if the MHR staff can narrow the gap, or if the Readers will continue to dominate. This week our reader is that MHR member known as Broncoboy326. Broncoboy326 writes:

"YOU PLAY, TO WIN THE GAME...HELLO...YOU PLAY, TO WIN THE GAME...YOU DON"T PLAY TO JUST PLAY IT!...WHEN YOU START TELLING ME IT DOESN'T MATTER THEN RETIRE, GET OUT, CAUSE IT MATTERS!"  I’m a die-hard Broncos fan, the kind of die-hard fan who made John Elway posters in first grade then waived the posters through both Super Bowl victories even if I wasn't old enough to grasp how special those victories were.  When I moved into my first house, me and my roommates instantly created a Broncos wall that we quickly covered it with Broncos paraphernalia.

As the quote above shows, I’ve also managed to become a Herm Edwards fan.  (Yes, he coached for the Chiefs, but Shannon played for the Ravens and I’m big enough to look past that.) What started as the rally cry for our intramural football team has turned into my friends’ and my rally cry for anything in life.  When I was contemplating asking a girl out, my friend gave me a "pep talk" consisting of little more than him asking "Why do you play?" I knew it then, and I know it now, after dating her for the last four months, "You play to win the game." And that message goes to the members of MHR who think we should start a QB who doesn't give us the best chance to win.  I respectfully say, "you play to win the game, you don't play to just evaluate talent, and when you start telling me it doesn't matter, then get out, cause it matters."

Broncoboy326 will be competing with John Bena. John writes:

Founder and Editor-in-Chief of MileHighReport.com. My goal has always been and always will be to create the best community-driven, independent site dedicated to the Denver Broncos on the web. A site that would do the team we all love proud. Because of the many fine members and contributors here at MileHighReport.com, we are well on our way to doing that. The Guru is married to a beautiful Patriots fan and has two lovely daughters. The family resides in Ohio. A quiet man of few words, A quiet man of few words -- unless you listen to MHR Radio -- John prefers to let his picks do the talking.
