Win a custom commissioned sports athlete portrait – valued at $300! Top Stories So yesterday was about the most fun I’ve had as a writer in quite some time. Obviously BroncoTalk pretended to be a Raider blog all day, much to the chagrin of Raider fans.  Even some Broncos fans were annoyed, but in the end we enjoyed making fun of the biggest joke(land) of a franchise in the NFL, but it is good to get back to Broncos-centric news. Saints fallout, Tannehill workouts get top billing – Peter King

Draft team needs: Denver Broncos | CBS Sports
There’s a reason Peyton Manning is in Denver, and it’s not only team exec John Elway or head coach John Fox. It’s Tim Tebow, the quarterback he displaced. Let me explain. Tebow made the Broncos an attractive choice because he turned what should have been a 4-12 doormat into a division winner that upset defending AFC champion Pittsburgh in the playoffs. Denver Broncos News Andrew Luck’s best blocker could be a top-10 draft pick too | Denver Post
If it’s possible for a 6-foot-4½, 316-pound offensive lineman to sneak up on you, Stanford guard David DeCastro is that guy. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell talks safety, balance as litigation mounts | Denver Post

Crystal baller. Many analysts, including the oddsmakers in Las Vegas, have portrayed the Broncos as Super Bowl contenders in 2012, entirely due to the fact the Broncos “upgraded” their quarterback position from Tim Tebow to Peyton Manning. Klis: Former Broncos Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall reunited with Chicago Bears | Denver Post
There was a time when the trio of Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall and Jeremy Bates had the NFL in their collective palms. Jets reportedly want leash on Tim Tebow’s ‘outside endeavors’ | Sportning News
If Tim Tebow’s introductory news conference raised a few eyebrows among his new teammates, imagine if the New York Jets’ backup quarterback had his own weekly radio spot. Manning on his way to Broncos | The Tartan
Less than two weeks after he was released by the Indianapolis Colts, future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning signed with the Denver Broncos. Manning chose the Broncos over the Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans, and San Francisco 49ers — all teams he had visited during the “Manning Free Agent Tour.” Denver Broncos Blogs AFC West Won’t Change a Bit in 2012 with Addition of Peyton Manning: Fan Take

Kansas City Chiefs Will Throttle Peyton Manning in 2012: Fan Take
A recent article in the Denver Post states that Tim Tebow, newly-traded to the New York Jets, will probably beat the Denver Broncos in a possible playoff meeting after the 2012 season.

The Denver Broncos may have made the biggest statement during free agency with the signing of quarterback Peyton Manning and the trading of Tim Tebow to the New York Jets.

Doubling Down on a Defensive Tackle Draft | MileHighReport
Going into the draft Denver has two glaring needs that hasn’t been address in Free Agency Defensive Tackle and Running Back. While having a capable backup to the aging free agency is high on the list of wants Denver has a dire need for two starting positions at Defensive Tackle. In the last 6 drafts Denver has yielded only three defensive starters currently on their roster (OLBs/DE Dumervil, and Miller, and DE Robert Ayers).

Fat Camp: Understanding the Manning offense – Part 3 | IAOFM
Hello, friends, and welcome to Part 3 of our series about the Manning offense that we can expect to see in Denver. Today, we’ll focus on the running game, which I think will schematically have a lot of similarity to the base running game we’ve seen in Denver the past three seasons. The philosophy will be very different, though, and it’s on that aspect which I will dedicate most of my focus.
