The Denver Broncos aren't all about passing with Peyton Manning. They've built a pretty good backfield, too.
The Broncos don't want Manning to air it out 42 times a game like he did in his last season in 2010. He missed all of last year with a weakened throwing arm, has gone through four neck surgeries, his wrenching exit from Indianapolis and the free agency frenzy that ended with him wearing orange and blue.
Coach John Fox has a beefed-up backfield to help pick up the blitz and carry the load during Manning's 2012 comeback tour.
New fullback Chris Gronkowski will lead the way for Willis McGahee, Lance Ball, rookie Ronnie Hillman and former first-round pick Knowshon Moreno, who's overcome a torn ligament in his right knee.

I hate pre-season predictions but figured what's the fun in life if you can't make a fool of yourself a few times, so here goes.

To say a player underachieved one must first have a clear understanding of what is the prescribed level of achievement. In the NFL this level is Super Bowl wins. The bar has not changed and regardless of the player or his fanatic following it will never change, the goal has always been to win Super Bowls. Using this measure Peyton Manning has underachieved magnificently and Philip...
These aren’t your father’s Indianapolis Colts. They might not even be your older brother’s. After finishing tied for the worst record in the NFL at 2-14, owner Jim Irsay pretty much blew up the roster that had previously taken the Colts to nine consecutive playoff appearances and two Super Bowls. Irsay had termed the makeover “Building the Monster.” Whether or not the...
