    COACHES CORNER: "Gruden sit's down with Broncos' HC @Snozberriez8198"

    1. Broncos are rolling right now with one of the' best records in the league, what's the secret to success?
    We attribute our success to having not only a young talent, but a team full of veteran leadership. That goes a long way both on the field and in the locker room.

    2. With Peyton in and winning games, the ghost of Tebow is a forgotten after thought, what about Brock Oswiler? We heard reports of Manning being shopped around the league.
    Brock is as hardworking as they come and is picking things up quickly, but is not ready to start in the NFL. If something happened at the QB position (injury or trade) Troy Smith, the former heisman winner would be our play caller.

    3. Big game this Week 12 vs division rival Kansas City whats your game plan to hold off the lead in the division?
    We have a tighter division than anyone had anticipated, and it shows you never to take anything for granted in the NFL. Our team mantra is "one game at a time" and we believe in that. But it looks like a 3 horse race with both Kansas City and Oakland being contenders and will come down to the wire.

    4. I think Roger Goodell was a Tebow fan seeing how your schedule (Chiefs twice, Ravens, Raiders) looks towards the end of the year. What will be your strategy entering the home stretch? Rest stars or looking to keep momentum up and secure home field?
    Our strategy is to go out and give our all in every single game, and every single down. If everyone goes out and gives 100% every down...we will be successful. To be honest, we haven't even thought about resting players, or the playoffs. Until we clinch the division or a playoff birth, it's not even on our minds.

    5. In one word describe your:

    Your Game: AGGRESSIVE
    Peyton Manning: ELITE
    The Chiefs: UNDERRATED

    Week 12 presents another action packed week in the GMFL the Panthers/Eagles, Packers/Giants, Chiefs/Broncos so I again will refer to my rankings of last week. Which pits the #8 Buffalo Bills vs the #4 Indianapolis Colts!

    GAME OF THE WEEK (4-1)
    The #8 Buffalo Bills (8-2) will travel to Lucas Oil stadium to battle the #4 Colts (8-2), and look to cool off the hot rookie QB Andrew Luck. The Colts offense has been high powered all season, while Luck has been unstoppable through the air hitting college teammate Coby Fleener and the sure handed vet Reggie Wayne, Luck is among the leagues top passers. If that wasn't enough the Colts can run the ball Donald Brown has a career best 1,113 yards and 11 TDs through 10 games, top 10 in the league in each statistic. On the other side of the ball Robert Mathis hasn't been slowed at all by the switch to the 3-4 defense as his 12 sacks and 23 tackles behind the line of scrimmage is a statistic HC KoG Cheesedip can't miss.​
    Buffalo has a new face, Super Mario the 100 MILLION dollar addition looks to prove why he's worth the money. Mario's 7 sacks is second on the team, the addition of Williams has allowed others on the line to eat so to speak. The Bills aren't a flashy team, just a constant and balanced squad that capitalizes on its opponents mistakes. Brad Smith in the Slot is Fitz's favorite target as he leads the team in receptions, yards and TDs. CJ Spiller has established his self as the' featured back but will share carries with Jackson AND Fitz looks to scramble when nothing is open. In the end its the #4 ranked offense vs the #6 offense, so what do i predict? A low scoring defensive, mistake key game! QB play will be key in this one, and I have a feeling Luck will protect the ball a tad bit better than Fitz.​
    BILLS 17 - COLTS 24
    UPSET ALERT (2-3)
    The Eagles are one of the leagues hottest teams right now at (6-4), the Panthers (8-2) are also rolling people. But something has to give and it will be the Panthers defense in this battle of league power houses! Cam Newton has played great all year long with a 120 QBR. That's a unreal number at this point in the season. He's also second on the team in rushing attempts but this will be no issue for the Eagles D as they practice against THE' Michael Vick! Greg Olsen & Steve Smith will be going against one of the leagues best secondaries with DRC & Nnamdi rolling around. Look for the safety Nate Allen and rookie LB McKendricks to take turns covering the Panthers #1 receiving threat while Nnamdi blankets the short, firecracker Smith. The Panthers will be forced to utilize personnel not often used to make plays. Will Louis Murphy and DeAngelo be able to take the heat off Newton & Olsen, we'll see!!​
    Vick/McCoy/Maclin lead the way for the Eagles offense which hasn't been slowed since coach BigRice took over, and Trent Cole has shot up the sack leader boards(12). The Eagles are built to win now, and under new management they are proving they are beyond just looking good on paper & Madden rating charts.​

    Well the Eagles didnt upset the Panthers lol he brought us back down to earth... too many Ints thrown by Vick.

    FItzpatrick finally had a game with no turnovers. and that was the difference in the game. Brad Smith also had another big game in the slot and now leads the league in YAC.
