On Monday night when he visits the Georgia Dome, he will face a Falcons defense that is minus a former Pro-Bowl cornerback and that allowed 258 passing yards to Kansas Citys Matt Cassel last week.

Hes got a very good understanding of how youre...

Daily Links: Denver Broncos News – 9/13/12

Denver Broncos News NFP is seeing a lot of similarity to the Denver Broncos offense today and the one Peyton Manning ran when he was with the Indianapolis Colts. I’m not surprised, the Broncos would be fools not to do that. Heck, if they’d do it for Tim Tebow and the option, why wouldn’t they do it for Manning?

Gay North Dakota Football Player Jamie Kuntz Is Rather Normal – Hates Romney & Michigan Football, Says Penn State Is “Poopy”

Denver Broncos: Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#9)

Well I think it’s safe to say Peyton Manning is fine after 4 neck surgeries. He might not have his best season, remember he’s 36, but unless he reinjures himself, the Broncos appear to have one of the best quarterbacks in the league. The defense I still have questions about after they ranked 24th in the league in scoring last year. They did a good job of shutting down the Steelers...

Denver Broncos at Atlanta Falcons: Week 2 NFL Pick

Denver Broncos (1-0) at Atlanta Falcons (1-0) If it wasn’t for Green Bay/Chicago, this would be the game of the week. Actually, scratch that, Green Bay/Chicago was an incredibly ugly game that should have been the game of the week, but wasn’t because teams only had 3 days to prepare and played much worse than they normally do. I hate this new one game on Thursday every week thing...
