Champ Bailey went all out for his Georgia homecoming, buying tickets for ''everybody that I cared about.''
And since the Denver Broncos Pro Bowl cornerback is assembling such a big audience at the Georgia Dome, he's hoping that maybe the Atlanta Falcons might indulge him and throw his way.
Don't be bashful, either, Matt Ryan, because Bailey doesn't mind the action.
Typically, quarterbacks shy away from challenging Bailey. But with Tracy Porter on the other side of the field - and the Falcons boasting one of the top receiving tandems in the league - Bailey's hoping to be kept quite busy Monday night.

Denver, CO. Things could not have gone more perfectly for the Denver Broncos in week 1. A lot of the question marks this team had heading into the season seemed to be answered to varying degrees, and Peyton Manning proved he is far from washed up. The young receivers looked outstanding, as Demaryius Thomas running down the field in open space once again will haunt Pittsburgh...

Turns out, Peyton Manning does have a favorite wide receiver in Denver - the one who's open.
That's the thing about the Broncos quarterback: He doesn't particularly play favorites. The four-time NFL MVP is so adept at spreading the wealth around that he's not choosy about his choices.
All he demands is a little bit of open space.
Manning completed passes to six...

Denver Broncos (1-0) at Atlanta Falcons (1-0)
If it wasn’t for Green Bay/Chicago, this would be the game of the week. Actually, scratch that, Green Bay/Chicago was an incredibly ugly game that should have been the game of the week, but wasn’t because teams only had 3 days to prepare and played much worse than they normally do. I hate this new one game on Thursday every week thing...
Denver Broncos safety Rahim Moore has been fined $21,000 by the league for his hit Sunday night on Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
Rahim unnecessarily struck a defenseless Sanders in the head and neck area on an incomplete pass play with 5:17 left in the third quarter of the game. Moore was flagged for unnecessary roughness on the play.
Sanders left the...
It didn't matter whether you were leaning against the wall that blocks the Broncos' practice fields from public view or driving along one of the nearby roads a half-mile from team headquarters; you were going to hear noise for most of a two-hour period at midday Thursday, whether you liked it or not. The noise, supplied by massive speakers abutting the Broncos' practice...
