  1. Why do some parents insist on fabricating names out of a blender for their offspring? One look at this name and you know what race it is without seeing a picture. At least if it had been “John” you’d not be able to tell. No need to play the race card when you stain your child at birth with that name.

  2. I have always maintained that, if there is a “Q” in the name, he’s gonna be trouble.
    Maybe not trouble, but not success.
    History has proven my theory correct.

    There’s a lot more wrong with you than there is with those parents. It’s beyond comprehension that your Cro-Magnan brain gets you through the day wired like that.

  4. Is Carr 100% yet? We will sure need him in the playoffs. You know, his career record against playoff teams is 2-16. That’s pretty good, yes? Both wins were against Brock Osweiler. That’s awesome!

    Your Broncos got Osweiler back. Instantly the best QB on that roster.
