Disappointed in MHR this season

I really like MHR but I have some criticism. I understand these writers are volunteers (right?) and do this out of a passion for our beloved Broncos. They deserve credit. Hopefully this can be received constructively.

I find the main page articles fall in a couple categories.

1) What happened on this day/Who wore this number/Who are the top 10...

These articles are fine during the offseason. Isn't there a lot more going on to talk about?

2) A statistical argument that results in a HTRWN (hard to remember WTF weighted number) acronym.

By the time I get to the end, I have no idea whether a high number, or a low number is good or not and I'm just not that interested in sabermetrics being used to determine 3rd down efficiency based on DE measurements/statistics. The writers really put a ton of work into this. I just think the basic logic is flawed and that football can't be quantified past a certain level. For example, Elvis Dumerviel should in most sabermetrics not cut it. I prefer words in good sentences.

3) Raw raw. I'm a positive person. I'm also realistic. I don't think the Broncos are in the same league as the Falcons, Texans and Patriots (3 of the top 5 teams). We're in that 2nd tier (am I too optimistic we are somewhere 5-10?). Stop pretending were contenders and lets focus on what we do have and what needs to change.

Finally, horse tracks used to list articles listed by other publications like the Denver Post. What happened to that? Why are we listing denverbroncos.com media relations articles? Does anyone really put 2 cents into those?

One more, I really don't like our new front page format. MHR might have no say in this since it's supplied by SBnation. It doesn't tell you how to find the good stuff quickly.

Again, this isn't personal. I miss last years style is all.
