    My 2nd favorite team is whoever is playing the Squeelers.

    Playing the Broncos here would be an easy win but it would mean that the Bungles play at New England.

    I think it would be a GREAT idea....I was there chanting "Elway Sucks' along with all of my other rowdy friends!!

    Acorsi wrote a very good book where he discussed that. It's exactly what you said. Acorsi believed that Elway was a special QB and had to find a way to make it work. He knew that his owner was a flake but being a real football man he just couldn't let go.

    Considering how the Ravens have played against "sure wins" this year?......nah, I'll pass on Denver. Bring on the Stoolers! It would give us all GREAT pleasure to usher them outta the playoffs via Pratt St. Perhaps a parade while the bus's roll out? With azz moons lining the sidewalks!

    Then....on to NE to press that skirt for TB!

    Ed. I hated what happened with the Elway thing but I place the blame squarely on Irsay. Once Elway heard what it was like to play in an organization with him at the helm, I can't blame him for wanting to run the other direction.

    Tough! Let Elway "eat cake" then, and go play baseball like he threatened to do - he would've relented and played eventually.

    The decision whether to root for the Broncos is easy because that game occurs after the Bengals @ Texans.

    If Bengals beat Texans, then Bengals will go on to play the Patriots, so we root for the Broncos to beat the Steelers and come to M&T the next week. Easy-peasy win for us over the Ponies.

    But if the Texans beat the Bengals, then Texans automatically come to M&T next, which means we want to send the toughest opponent to Foxboro, so... OK I am throwing up in my mouth a little but... we root for the... Steelers... to.. OK I need a minute here, hold on. Feeling pukey. Right, so we root for the rapists to win over the Broncos and then go to New England and then... uhhh, not feeling well... (hey what happened to the vomit smiley? I need one here) and then... root for the Steelers to beat the Patriots so we can have home field AFCCG vs. hobbled Steelers rather than a road game vs. Patriots.

    Hey mods, please bring back the vomit smileys!

    If Irsay had simply stayed out of the way, Elway would've signed and the Colts would've still been in Baltimore (there was a realistic chance that Irsay would've sold the team during the 80s).

    I still can't stand Elway though because he was and is an arrogant prick.

    The SOB will be here next year when Denver visits Baltimore so I'll be chanting 'Elway Sucks' just like I did in September of 1983 when he shat himself at Memorial Stadium.

    I may never forget my last experience at a Broncos/Ravens game. One older Ravens fan, in particular, was intoxicated before the game had begun. I figured that I would go to the bathroom before the game began and you could hear the guy yelling, "Hey Elway, you're a bum! Ya hear me Elway?! You were a bum, you're still a bum and you'll always be a bum!".

    As for whether or not it is selfish, of course it is selfish. Most wishes that are based in negativity are selfish. It's just whether or not you are comfortable with that.

    The easiest way to the Super Bowl will be if someone defeats New England, so that the Ravens can host the AFC Championship game, because the Ravens play their best at home.

    So, while one could get a good laugh from Denver defeating Pittsburgh, that would mean that you expect the Bengals to go into Gillette Stadium and defeat the Patriots.

    Do you really see that happening?

    Reread Teavo's post above. If the Bengals beat the Texans, they go to NE and the Stealers-Broncos winner comes here. If the Texans beat the Broncos, they come here & the Stealers-Broncos winner goes to NE. Since CIN@HOU will be played before PGH@DEN, Ravens fans can wait until Saturday night to break out the orange & blue or (where's the barfing smiley when you need it?) tar & urine.

    I have never forgiven him, but I will admit he was one of the top 237 QBs to ever play QB in the NFL. Yeah 237 is about right.
    As much as I hated when Elway made that decision not to play for Baltimore back in 83' I still think he made the right decision for himself. I really doubt Elway would have accompolished anything close to what he did in Denver if he had stayed in Baltimore. Baltimore Colts were in total disarray back then.

    I believe he could have sat out a year and then re-entered the draft or become a free agent. I'm pretty sure he would have taken that route if available.

    Keep in mind that I said I don't blame Elway for what he did. I never said I liked him.

    It's not childish to root for the Broncos. But it has nothing to do with Elway. It's about hating Pittsburgh.

He knew Irsay would not spring for better linemen and receivers so why play for the drunk! He did what he needed to do so he could have the best career possible. Didn't blame him then, don't blame him now.

    Good call! Elway saw the same thing we saw as season ticket holders.
