    Hey Nate Jones is gone…I think I just heard East cheer like a little girl at a Justin Beiber concert….

    I'm quite happy myself. There are also some good players out there that are going to (or have already been) cut that I hope the Broncos look into.

    I will personally miss his sitting 12 yards off his man when it's 3rd and 8…oh well, guess they will need to find another guy to give up short pass plays to.

    Even in the era of HDTV he was still off the screen.

    Chi cut Tank! There's some Dline beef.

    I'm just as happy as East, trust me!  It's like a dream come true!!!  LOL!

    What is amazing to contemplate is that on Saturday evening, 864 men who were playing football this week, will be released. 

    Is there hidden gold?  Is there a future Bronco star among them?  Which of our 27 cuts will achieve stardom for another team?  Will there be any BIG surprises?  Dawkins?  Tebow?  Cox?

    The roulette wheel is about to spin…place your bets…

    How will Rivers get all those free first downs now that Jones is finally gone. Goodbye Nate, and make sure take a warm coat to Canada…You will need it.
