I want to preface this post by saying that I think CP is an incredible back. I was curious though- have any other Broncs fans noticed that he seems to lose his footing alot? I can't tell if he's slipping or just runs his feet right out from under him. I don't know the reason for it, but it could be that he is making moves the human body is not meant to make! Either way, I would love to see him get a few more touches per game. He is a weapon we're lucky to have.

You've really got to get the satellite dish with the NFL Sunday Ticket package, unless you have to work on Sundays.

I work on Sundays. :-(

Not that I could justify that kind of money just to watch football.

Yes i have noticed that clinton has been falling lately but it's because the other teams are hip to him running the ball. so i guess when you look at it the opposing team is shuting him down. and i have to agree with you when you said that he sometimes does things that the human body isn't familliar with sometimes it's out of the ordinary but i'm proud of clinton and his performances but i want him to touch the ball more often.

He has some great moves, but I'd like to see him finish some games as strong as he starts them.

Sunday Ticket is the best!! I don't know how I lived without it all those years. The new blackout rule sucks though. Even Dr. Z. from SI is mad about it.

Here in Hong Kong I get a few sunday ticket games streamed to me via my 8mbit connection (but I can't choose, luckily the broncos game will be on archive this week) plus the sunday and monday night games on ESPN Asia.

Now, if the game is being shown on your local channel you can't get the game through Sunday Ticket. This is a problem if you are getting the second game of a double header and the first game goes into overtime. If that happens, you will miss the first part of the second game. Dr. Z (Paul Zimmerman) in Sports Illustrated has been writing about this for several weeks now. I think it happened to him very early on in the season. Did any of this make sense? lol

I thought a sellout trumped any blackouts ... so Chiefs and Bronco fans living in KC & Denver, respectively, wouldn't have to worry about it.

But I do understand that some local folk missed the first part of the Chiefs-Raider game because last weekend because the first game went into overtime.

Right. In theory people living in the Denver or KC area wouldn't have to worry about missing the Broncos or Chiefs, but I live in Texas and the Cowboys and Texans trump everybody. Theoretically for me, if Denver is scheduled to be shown on the local channel as the 2nd game of a double header, but the Cowboys or Texans game in front of it goes to OT, then I will miss the first part of the Broncos game. Until this year, that was never a problem because DirectTV showed all games through Sunday Ticket.

According to Dr. Z., FOX agrees that the policy is stupid and they let him in on a little secret. Apparently FOX is looking at buying DirectTV. Oh, according to him, the problem is not DirectTV, but the NFL. This was their decision.

the balck out that is being mentioned has nothing to do with the teams selling out or not, it is if the Dircet TV has the game and it is being shown locally then Direct TV must black out the game within a certin radius of the stadium...

Actually the new rule has nothing to do with proximity, but what game is being shown on your local station. I know, typically they are one in the same, ie: the closest game is being shown on the local station. I live in San Antonio and for some reason, today the local station didn't show the Texans game, but the Pats and the Colts. I could get the Texans game on Sunday Ticket, but the Pats and Colts were "blacked out" from Sunday Ticket because it was being shown on the local station.
