Chip could return CU to football glory days
Calling for Kelly. All I need to say is: Chip Kelly to the University of Colorado. Would the Buffaloes go after him? He’s a top-notch coach for a program that will stay at rock bottom until the Buffs can get a coaching style that attracts recruits.
Rich, calls Beulah home
Kiz: Colorado can’t offer the big money or prestige that would appeal to Kelly’s ego. So CU seems like a bad fit. But as long as we’re talking crazy dreams, here’smine: Kelly takes the coaching gig with the Cleveland Browns. And, in 2016, he finally gets to work with a Hall of Fame quarterback, some guy named Peyton Manning.
Man up, Mark. You are an idiot. Brock Osweiler is a clown at quarterback. Our D has won the games. As a Broncos fan of 45 years, I hate reporters like you. Manning is our man, not coach Gary Kubiak’s little (lap dog). As a coach, Kubiak destroyed Houston and is doing the same in Denver. He wanted Manning under center and that’s how the injury occurred. Do us real fans a service and find another line of work, Kiz. You (stink).

Kiz: Before John Elwaymade a coaching hire, the knuckleheads here at Kickin’ ItHeadquarters tried towarn: If Manningwas going to be the quarterback, the obvious choice as coach wasAdam Gase. Once the decisionwas made to go with Kubiak, itwould’ve been wiser to say goodbye to Manning. With the benefit of 20/20 hindsight, Manning and Elwaymight nowagree with that assessment. You’re correct, Rick. I could be better suited for another line ofwork. For a small, sevenfigure fee, Iwould gladly provide consulting services to the Broncos.
Let’s go Green. After the Broncos beat Cincinnati, you wrote their “offensive line looked as if it had been assembled on the island of misfit toys.” How long is this going to continue? Here are the options: 1) Develop a new blocking strategy; 2) Do nothing and Osweiler will get hurt; 3) Betme thatManning will not be ready to play! The real answer is sitting on the bench. Tight end Virgil Green loves to block.

Kiz: The playing time of tight end Vernon Davis is already trending downward, as the role of Green expands. If the Broncos secure a bye, would Kubiak have the time to retool his offensive line before the first playoff game? Yes, but the real problem is very limited choices at tackle. That’s why the O-line is the biggest concern in the postseason, although more fans would rather scream about the merits of Osweiler vs. Manning.
Unscripted. And today’s parting shot takes a crack at why Manning went so ballistic about the recent allegation that linked his family to HGH.
Prick anyone’s trauma pocket, and they likely will spazz out answers that don’t make a lot of logical sense. Manning’s usual robotic, scripted folk machine has been a little more, um, Rage Against the Jazeera.
