Defense in Denver


There's no defense like no defense
Gone are the good old days of the Orange Crush defense. Gone are the Defenses like Doomsday and the Iron Curtain and the Purple People Eaters. I miss them. Especially in basketball. It's probably the biggest reason that I find college basketball so much more fun to watch than the NBA.

Name the 2008 Defense
Knowing that the Orange Crush defense is a thing of the past, it's time for all of you out there to come up with a name for this years vintage of the Broncos defense. Whoever thinks up the best name gets the personalized original of the cartoon above ( just be aware it's a black and white version, not the colorized one seen on this blog). I'll take entries all weekend and choose the winner on Tuesday. So start blogging those entries!

    "The Orange Flush" or "The Orange Flushed" (It's that crappy.)

    "The Orange Plush Defense" (It's that soft.)

    "Bailey and the Boys" or "Bailey and the Bums" (Because it's pretty much been only Champ Bailey who tackles anyone or covers a receiver. No one else on the defense really needs to be referred to by name.)

    "The Execrable Eleven" (For those who don't know what Execrable means: Definition: So annoying or detestable as to deserve condemnation.)

    "The Horrendous Horses"

    "Slowik's Super-SUCK-ers"

    "The 30-Plus Defense" {Reference to either the D giving up 30-plus points per game or for the D being on the field more than 30 minutes per game, or well...both.)

    That's what I have for now. If I think of any more, I'll post them.

    I miss the days of Elway. The donkeys have not been the same since then. However, if you want to watch a team whose behind-the-scenes resembles a real trainwreck, check out what is happening with the Raiders. Despite living in Oakland for 13 years, my loyalties still lie with the Broncos and I still have my hat from the days of Super Bowl 21.
