    Football Outsiders has named Broncos offensive tackle Orlando Franklin, linebacker Von Miller and cornerback Chris Harris to their 2011 All-Rookie team.  Congrats, fellas!  [FO]

  • Per the Broncos official injury report, safety Brian Dawkins (neck) is doubtful for Sunday’s game.  Kansas City running back Jackie Battle (foot) has been ruled out and safety John McGraw (ankle) is doutful.  [IRP]
  • Broncos center, J.D. Walton, has snapped to quarterback Tim Tebow–a former Heisman Trophy winner–this season and used to snap to Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III–the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner–while in college.  [DP]
  • Bronco fans that followed former Head Coach Josh McDaniels when he left Denver are few and far between.  Rams receiver Brandon Lloyd however, would follow him to the ends of the earth.  [SLTT]

  • Speaking of McD, former Broncos running back Peyton Hillis, whom McDaniels traded in 2010, now believes in the Madden curse.  [TPD]
  • Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey was presented the fifth annual Darrent Williams Good Guy Award earlier this week.  We miss you, Darrent.  [MD]
  • Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy says despite Tebow’s eight turnovers in the past four games, the second year quarterback will be just fine and is learning from his mistakes.  [FAO]
  • If former Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton keeps Denver out of the playoffs, fans will never forgive Broncos V.P. of football operations, John Elway.  Tebow can “save Elway’s bacon,” on Sunday with a win.  [PFT]
  • Broncos punter Britton Colquitt and Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt are brothers, and are the first brothers to punt in the NFL at the same time since 1941 (George and Wes McAfee).  [DB Blog]
