It is the making of nightmares. Fouler than any stench, darker than the deepest abyss.
The Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals stood on the precipice of such despair with less than 15 seconds left in the fourth quarter of their 2012 Week Four preseason game. The hard-fought score — the production of roster bubble players clawing for every inch, of offensive struggles and interceptions and missed field goals — was tied, 13-13. Less than 20 seconds remained on the game clock, and the Broncos were resigned to their own 32-yard line.
Then Broncos fourth-string quarterback Adam Weber performed the miracle. He completed a 45-yard pass to Greg Orton to the Arizona 23-yard line, calling timeout with seven seconds left, and setting up Matt ”Money” Prater for a game-winning field goal.

After Manning lit up the 49er’s defense last week for two first quarter touchdowns, Fox reflected on his entire team’s performance. In an interview...

Adam Weber has been impressive playing for the Denver Broncos in each of the last two preseasons, but he just doesn’t seem to get any consideration upwards on the depth chart. Meanwhile, Brock Osweiler is continuing to be unimpressive against a bunch of defensive players who will soon be cut from the Arizona Cardinals roster, but he did have that one great...
Denver, CO. For a defense that finished 2011 in the botton half of the league in both rushing yards and passing yards allowed, there is actually plenty of optimism heading into 2012. The Denver Broncos won their first preseason game on Thursday night with ease, and it was the defense who shined throughout.
