  • I Am Sick Of Hearing About The Cowboys, Redskins, Patriots, and Seahawks....

    I don't know about the rest of you but I am completely sick of hearing about these teams. I always end up turning off NFLN, and really any other football show, because all they can talk about is the Cowboys maybe making the playoff, the Redskins with RGIII and Shanny, what the Patriots will do without Gronk and the greatness of Bill Belicheck/Tom Brady, or how great the Seahawks are. There's a huge bias I find where some teams are discussed to the point of pure exhaustion, while others barely get mentioned (Hint Hint the Broncos). I remember I barely watched NFLN all last summer because all they could talk about was RGIII and his stupid knee.

    Biggest example: Our Peyton Manning breaks the NFL record for TDs and they don't even show his presser on NFLN. They showed a short minute clip later in the show. Instead, they bring about 20 minutes of the Romo/Jason Garrett presser.

    We'd be also hearing too much about the Giants if they were still in playoff contention. I really get fed up with all the over-coverage of these select teams (especially those in the NFC East). Sorry about the rant but I feel like it would have been nice to actually celebrate Manning's huge accomplishment. The story of the Cowboys going 8-8 and missing the playoffs again is just boring........

    ESPN certainly gives Denver air time not to mention that my last two issues of ESPN the magazine have featured Broncos on the cover.

        Honestly they are probably sick of talking about Manning all year. I know it excites people to hear about a Bronco but even at time I just have to turn it off. This is why people end up hating the Broncos.

          Unfortunately, the story of Manning is not as drama filled as those other stories. Even the massive amount of injuries incurred to our roster and the (truly) amazing season Manning is having, is no match for the complete dumpster fire that is the NFC EAST. Aside from east coast media bias, the "Will Romo choke?" and "ShannahanaGriffin drama" is just far to compelling a story than what's going on in Denver. Mainly because the world comes to expect seasons like this from Manning. And with the Patsies, what Brady is doing with those misfit toys, and without Gronk and Hernandez btw, is truly amazing itself. If not for Manning breaking records, he would undoubtedly be the MVP. And don't be surprised if you hear compelling arguments for him to get it.

            These two nailed it on the head

            I was listening to ESPN this morning and Jaws was doing nothing but being awestruck over what Manning has done this year. Also briefly listened to Mad Dog Radio and the host shot down a Pats fan that insisted Brady should be MVP this year. The host said no way it's anyone else but Manning.

            But this one nailed it better. We are the drama free team. We are supposed to be winning like this all the time. It's only dramatic news when someone beats us and provides a so called blue print for how to stop us. Funny how everytime an elite team loses it's a so called blueprint. If it was a blueprint how come only two teams have beat us since Indy?

            The Seattle love is over the tope and a bit annoying. Especially after a loss yesterday at home that proves they are no less vulnerable at home than we are. But the media is obsessed with their overal agressive often times illegal style of defense.

            But with the other stories the drama is always around the NFC East and who will get into the playoffs. Media is huge east coast bias. So naturally anything Brady does and the NFC East teams do is all they want to talk about. It's where a majority of listeners are.

            Broncos have everything clinched but the 1 seed. Which should be ours this week and it's no drama because there is no reason we shouldn't handle them. If we don't we don't deserve the 1 seed. So not much drama surrounding our final game. Other than the shock of a loss again.

            Outside of that there are tons of intriguing playoff implication games this weekend. Espeically in the NFC where I believe only 2 spots are locked up.

            so yes I feel the OP's pain but it's to be expected.

              Media coverage on the Broncos has grown exponentially over the last three years as compared to years past where they would not even receive a blurb from the media ...

              I however also get sick of hearing about other teams..When I need a fix I find that the most comprehensive coverage on the planet about the Broncos can be found here ..

                I watch NFL Network all the time and don't feel the Seahawks get mentioned that much more than the Broncos.

                That said, there's a reason the Cowboys, Pats, and Skins get talked about a lot -- they're the top three franchises in the country in terms of fanbase and money earned. Check out the Forbes list -- those clubs bring in a lot of revenue and ratings.

                  It doesn't bother me at all. Peyton reaching #51 is a "big deal" especially for us Bronco fans, but lets be honest, they have been talking about Peyton beating the record since about week 4. It was a major story for weeks on the records the Broncos offense/Peyton have the ability to break.

                  Dallas on the other hand is IMO a story worth talking about, good or bad. Somehow the find away to find themselves back to another 8-8 season. Gotta credit Jerry for keeping them in the medias mind also. Shanny and RGIII aka As The World Turns is another interesting story...hell that whole division is interesting.

                    I agree the other teams mentioned (e.g., Cowboys, Redskins, Patriots) probably aren't worth the air time they get. However, I don't believe the "Seattle love" is over the top. That is a very good football team and probably one of only three or four teams in the league that have a legitimate chance (50% or greater) of beating Denver on a consistent basis (say, best out of 7).

                    I agree - sometimes that defense borders on "illegal" with how much pushing, shoving, and holding occurs in the secondary. However, a lot of that team's success also exists b/c of all the contact the defenders initiate in that first five yards. Add to that some great ball-hawkers (e.g., Earl Thomas), and Seattle is no slouch.

                    But being that good, they definitely deserve the hype. Hopefully, that only makes a Denver win over them in the Super Bowl all that much sweeter.

                      More people complaining about the media.

                      And please, they talk plenty about the Broncos, out of here with that type of stuff.

                        One minute *SOME* people are saying that they are tired of hearing about Manning and how they would love for us to fly up under the radar, the next minute they're complaining about not getting enough air time.....can't win.

                          I think people fail to realize that in todays world with so many different networks they have to talk football a majority of 7 days a week. Radio shows are 24/7.

                          Football really only occurs on Sunday and Monday night. (complete disrespect to thursday night football intended).

                          I don't think people realize how hard it would be to talk about the same team 24/7. They have to find creative ways to fill the time and not be too redundant. That's got to be tough to do.

                          The more compelling drama stories like the divsion battles (albiet involving mediocre teams) is far easier to keep discussing.

                          Media talks about us plenty. I think people just don't realize it's oftentimes just a probability of them not catching the show at the right time.

                            I actually wish networks would talk about the Broncos less. Not because I mind, but I prefer to fly off the radar.

                            hard to do that with PFM though. That guy gets talked about by every show every day.

                              Agreed. Love it when there is no drama or hype. It gets annoying.
