Broncos Secure Playoff Spot, Black And Gold Win Fantasy Championship,Grimes Wife Causing Trouble In Miami,Durant Free Agent

FOOTBALL

In Monday Night Football, the Denver Broncos pulled off an important win in overtime against the Cincinnati Bengals. With the win, the Broncos secured a spot in the playoffs and even edged out the Bengals for the #2 spot. If the Broncos beat the San Diego Chargers in week 17, they will clinch a first round bye. Broncos 20, Bengals 17.

Screaming Weasels  Screaming Weasels  Black and GoldIn other important football news, the Monday night game capped off a great season of fantasy football. Our team, the Screaming Weasels, valiantly fought hard to secure a spot in the Super Bowl against the #1 seed, Black and Gold. After a tough weekend (with a brilliant move by Black and Gold to play Redskins’ tight end Jordan Reed), it all came down to whether or not Broncos’ Demaryius Thomas could pull out a couple of TD’s for the Weasels. Unfortunately it wasn’t his best game so the Super Bowl trophy goes to the deserving Black and Gold. Congratulations!

Elsewhere in the NFL, things could get a bit uncomfortable in Miami.  Dolphins star cornerback Brent Grimes’ wife Miko took to Twitter after the Dolphins loss and criticized their QB Ryan Tannehill.   She said “I knew this quarterback stunk the minute we signed to this team, but I kept quiet so I didn’t discourage bae [Brent] from believing in his team”.  She sent a couple other highly critical tweets about Tannehill, and it’s just more evidence that this franchise has a serious morale issue.  It’s also possible that Tannehill isn’t the Dolphins QB next season.

BASKETBALL

In the NBA, Kevin Durant is a free agent at the end of the season.  Most people think that his decision will come down to either re-signing with Oklahoma City or playing for his hometown Washington Wizards.  But now, according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard, the Golden State Warriors have expressed serious interest in bringing Durant to town.  All the teams next season will have more money due to the higher salary cap, and the Warriors would love to see a dynasty emerge that includes Durant.

Todd Frazier Wins Home Run Derby In New Format, Demaryius Thomas’s Mom Released From Prison

BASEBALL

The new format for the Home Run Derby at the All-Star Game was a huge success. Major League Baseball decided to shorten the event due to a possibility of rain and to make the event more exciting. Each round was shortened to four minutes so it became important for the players to take every pitch (instead of waiting for the best one). The result was 159 home runs compared to 78 last year.  The Cincinnati Reds’ Todd Frazier won the contest.  The All-Star Game is scheduled for Tuesday evening 7:00 pm EST.

Broncos Dominate Chargers, Broncos’ Top Receivers Free Agents, Cutler “Elite” QB In Salary Only, Nash To Miss Entire Season,

FOOTBALL

In Thursday night football, the Denver Broncos (on only 4 days rest) had no problem putting away the San Diego Chargers. Peyton Manning passed for 286 yards and 3 more TD’s to put him at 513. Emmanuel Sanders was on fire this game catching all 3 TD’s. Broncos 35, Chargers 21.

In more Bronco news, their top two receivers Demaryius Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas are free agents at the end of the season.  The Broncos are trying to lock these guys up, but there is a chicken and egg situation.  Both these guys may want to test free agency, as they could attract handsome sums of money in the off-season.  Plus, they may not want to sign with the Broncos if Peyton Manning doesn’t come back next year.  That would make the Broncos a completely different team.  For now, the Broncos have said they have tabled talks until a future date.

Jay CutlerFinally, in the NFL, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler got off to a hot start, but has been struggling mightily the past few games.  Defensive superstar, and Cutler’s former teammate, Brian Urlacher, has told the media that Jay Cutler is an “elite” quarterback, but in salary only.  Cutler is the highest paid quarterback this season, but his performance indicates that he is a sub-average QB at best.  It’s never good when your former teammate is calling out your performance and calling you mediocre.  There is seriously something wrong with that Bears organization.

BASKETBALL

Steve NashIn the NBA, the aging Steve Nash has done everything in his ability to make a major comeback.  While he is 40 years old, Nash probably takes care of his body better than any athlete in the NBA.  He has an extremely strict diet, and even keeps a sleep journal to make sure that he gets a requisite amount of rest.  Beyond this, he’s constantly doing rehabilitation exercises, and just wants to get out there on the court and help.  Unfortunately, this week it was reported that Nash will miss the entire season with a back injury.  This is a huge bummer, as this will likely lead to his retirement.
