Just A Pinch of La La Land

 


                                                                                        Wow!

 

      What a bit of news to try the very hearts of every Texans' mind. Just when all of you began to believe that the Texans were something special,  bad news hits.What shocked me was the number of 'Screws through the Chest' and 'its happened again' posts, mainly at your site, but also reading the news.

      Are you and the msn media crazy? It is not some QB named Matt that has you headed towards your first Super Bowl. It is the team Kubiak and others have put together.  Do you not see that the last couple of weeks have not been a 'QB effort' but a team effort. And 'Fort' is the difference betwenn 'fort' and 'furt' and 'fert'.  Your team has a powerful 'Fort' of things to fall back on to make up for that something special called Matt.

     Fortune is what you have in what Kubiak has brought together over the last  several drafts. Another unique talent is the way your scouts have found running backs (deep in the draft) that are true NFL running backs.  I mean look at what I've had to live with in Denver. We spend a 12th overall pick on a guy that (for the last two seasons) is either injured or running into his own blockers for whopping 2.5 yard gains.

     You guys are lucky to have not only a good team but a team that is young and will be good for years.  With the amount of pesimism I saw in the posts right after the news I thought it best that I help you find peace, find a place where everything has a positive side, let me show you the road to La La Land.

        As you can see it is a peacefull and road obviously heading to a beautiful land. Notice at the end of the road there seems to be a light just beyond the haze. Pass through the haze and you will find yourself in the light.

                                                                              A Little History

     A few years back, when Shanny was still our coach and we had just drafted Cutler things seemed to be really right for our team. Optimism was high and I started something called "La-La-Land-of-Pre-Season-Feel-Goods".It was really just for fun and meant to expand on the optimism that all fans feel during Pre-Season. But then it just kinda exploded and many many jumped into the land. Pretty soon we had graphic artist, very smart students, and other members of MHR creating banners, "Kool AideMan" and other La La Land staples. I really wanted it to be just a Pre-Season thing but talk about a Pandora's Box....I created a something (or a someplace) that people really needed when our team fell apart.

     Somewhere during that time one of MHR's staff, Zappa, (known now as Tim Lynch) got bored and posted a set of rules fot The Land. As he called it  "A Constitution of sorts."     It would not be right for me (A Bronco Fan First) to write anything for your Texans but I can give you what Tim wrote that day to give you some ideas.

 

 

We have all heard about La La Land, but here is your official guide to La La Land.  A Constitution of sorts.  Or perhaps a guide to true happiness.

1.  Anything that is not good concerning the Broncos  shall not be discussed. 

2.  All predictions of the future must be approved by Mike Clark or Zappa

3.  Feelings such as; despair, sadness, anger, frustration, pessimism, or any other negative feeling is forbidden while in La La Land.

4.  The Broncos rule all.                   

5.  Raiders, Chargers, and Chiefshave foul odor.  

6. These rules, amendments, guidelines or whatever you want to call them are to be followed diligently at all times while visiting or residing in La La Land.  Anyone found to be in violation of these rules shall be deported immediately to the Real World of misery and despair.  Repeat offenders will be dealt with by Chuck Norris.

La La Land national motto: 13-3 Baby!

La La Land national mascot: Orange and Blue Kool Aid Man, Oh Yeaahhhh!  

La La Land national anthem: Ain't No Mountain High Enough !

I hope you have found this guide to be helpful and informative.  May the Broncos be with you. May the Texans be with you!

      You guys should do something of the same. La La Land is a lot of fun during Pre-Season and can help when a regular season crisis occures. No matter how bad it gets if someone writes 'La La Land' members will remember that things have a positive side. You could write a constitution of your own and put things like this:

                                                  Titans, Jags smell bad......and Indy finally stinks      

     You could come up with a BRB anthem:       I would suggest, 'Willliam Tells Ovature' !!                

      Nothing like, "The Lone Rangers" music to stir your heart and you don't have to sing! bigfatdruck can get bigger fatter and drunker, not have to remember any words, and still raise another beer to the BRB anthem.

              Someone from your site has already created a great Mascot in that 'Blue and Red Kool-Aide Man' 

                                                      There is one rule that must be at all sites:                                

     6. These rules, amendments, guidelines or whatever you want to call them are to be followed diligently at all times while visiting or residing in La La Land.  Anyone found to be in violation of these rules shall be deported immediately to the Real World of misery and despair.  Repeat offenders will be dealt with by Chuck Norris.

             Once you have someone that has entered the Land...he will guide you to 'Happy Thoughts' Reguardless!

 

                                   Reasons You should be Happy and not Sad about a Simple QB Change

                                                                          Let's talk Quarter Back

     Yes, Shaub is an elite top ten QB, be is he the reason you're winning. Cam Newton (7) and Phylis Dribles(5) are top ten QB's and their teams have losing records.  Now let's look at another extreme. Alex Smith is 23rd in yardage and their at something like 8 and 1. If nothing else I can tell you that a team can still win in this day and age throwing only 8 passes the entire game. Didn't think that possible until last week. But Guess What!!

                                                                        Let's talk Running Backs

     I'll be honest, I would think about giving my liver to have Tate and Foster in Denver's backfield. I mean really! Look at what you guys have! Arian Foster Comes back from an injury and climbs up to #6 in a matter of weeks. During Foster's absence you discover that Ben Tate may be a better pure runner. Foster is at 4.3 ypc and Tate is at an unreal 5.6. Unreal !!  Man, think about this!  My team was a top ten passing team and started out one and four. We put in a QB that hasn't quite figured out 'the passing thing yet' and we are now four and five. Can a team win completing only 2 passes all game. They can if they can run.

                                                                               Let's Talk Defense

     I don't know if you guys realize this but as of this week you have the best defense in the NFL....by almost 11 yards per game.   That is Special.  Let me tell you a story. I've been following this game since like '61 or '62. During those many years I've seen some great games. Some a bit on the offensive side and some a bit defensive. But in the 70's I saw a team rise that had a fairly green QB, a pretty good runner, and a freak defense that by some miracle was born in a single draft . It took a couple years but that team soon became a force. They made the playoffs with very little offense and lost the firsat time...but the next year...still with very little offense...won their first Super Bowl. They proceeded to win four Super Bowls in just Six Years.  A great defense can carry a team as long as that team has a running game to take some time off the clock.

Your team has both.

Good luck the rest of the season!
