Found August 10, 2013 on Football Nation:
In any draft there are several players who wind up becoming huge stars and several who are busts. Sometimes the stars and busts are rated similarly coming out of the draft, with the classic case being the 1998 draft with Peyton Manning and Ryan Leaf. In some cases there are highly touted prospects who are expected to be busts from the start (I'm not the only one who could've predicted Jamarcus Russell would be a bust), but in most cases it takes at least a year or two before one can really know that a player is not going to live up to his draft pick. With that being said, I will pick five players out of this year's draft who show the signs of busts.

Visual evidence showing Jeff Saturday is done with football

Former longtime center of the Indianapolis Colts Jeff Saturday is not returning to an NFL field, and here is the visual proof why he won’t: According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the man who felt Peyton Manning’s right hand on his grundle for 13-straight years is down to 230LBs.

10 must-watch games from the NFL season

Training camp is in full swing. Preseason games are underway. It’s enough to satiate the appetites of the football-crazy public for now, but there are plenty clamoring for the real thing in Week 1.

The Manning brothers bring you "Football on Your Phone"

Now, don't get me wrong - this is straight up a commercial for DirecTV. Commercials suck. Except when they're entertaining. A well done commercial can be more fun to watch than the show you turned your tv on for. And when it comes to athletes, I love me the ones who don't take themselves seriously, the ones who can make fun of themselves and goof around. Back in December...

Denver Broncos Will Beat Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl XLVIII

Judging from the 2012 season, I'm picking the Denver Broncos to meet the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl XLVIII. Since the Broncos acquired four-time MVP, and Super Bowl XLI champion, Peyton Manning, they had arguably the best offense in 2012, finishing with a record of 13-3.Not only did Manning get the job done in the regular season with Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, above...

Osweiler shows he's learned plenty from Manning

(Eds: Adds details, quotes. With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer That's what 18 months as No. 18's understudy looks like. Brock Osweiler followed Peyton Manning's cameo appearance Thursday night with his most productive day in a Broncos uniform in Denver's 10-6 preseason win at San Francisco.

How Denver’s Schedule Will Help Fantasy Production

Heading into the 2013 season, the Denver Broncos have arguably the easiest schedule in the NFL. Going off of last season’s records, their opponents went a combined 110-146. While some of those teams improved, and the Broncos are going to have to deal with a suspended Von Miller for the first four games, it would be wise to take a second look at some of their offensive skill players...
