As long as you didn't do something silly like draft Peyton Manning No. 3 overall because you like his Buick commercial or take a kicker in the 5th round because he went to your college, you still have a good shot at the title.Be active and pay attention and you have a huge advantage against most of your competitors.Last season Cowboys running back Felix Jones suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 6. DeMarco Murray entered Week 7 listed as the backup to Tashard Choice.He ran for 253 yards, breaking Emmitt Smith's single-game Cowboys' rushing record.On average this season, Murray was drafted in the middle of the 2nd round.That is huge value for free.Last week Buffalo Bills' starter, Fred Jackson, went down with a knee injury and is expected to be out from three to eight weeks. His backup, C.J. Spiller, responded by running for 169 yards and a touchdown on just 14 carries. He added 25 yards receiving on two catches.These situations arise more often than you may think.Jus...

Peyton Manning already has his own corn field maze in Colorado

Yeesh, that didn’t take long.  Barely one game into his tenure as starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos and already Peyton Manning has his own corn field maze, located just outside Greeley, Colorado.  He was a god in Indianapolis and I don’t remember any farmer’s doing this for him during his time with the Colts.  Could be that there aren’t many corn fields in the...

Peyton Manning Crop Circles In Colorado Cornfield

Well, Peyton Manning-mania is in full bloom in Colorado, as mysterious crop circles emerge in the image of the star Broncos QB. OK, they're not mysterious. But it would better if aliens had left them behind.

Manning getting up to speed with receivers

Turns out, Peyton Manning does have a favorite wide receiver in Denver - the one who's open. That's the thing about the Broncos quarterback: He doesn't particularly play favorites. The four-time NFL MVP is so adept at spreading the wealth around that he's not choosy about his choices. All he demands is a little bit of open space. Manning completed passes to six...

Peyton Manning Victories Apparently Marred By Pigeon Droppings

There’s a renewed sense of excitement at Random Sporting Goods Chain at Mile High Field. Unfortunately, there’s also scads of pigeon sh*t. That’s right. Some Broncos fans say they can’t enjoy watching Pey-Pey’s NeckAIDS heroics because they’re too busy avoiding the fecal spray of winged rats. Are the waves of pigeon droppings merely the first in a wave of plagues being...

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? [National Football Post] The Atlanta Falcons coaches had some...

Denver Broncos: Tracy Porter's Play Outshines Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning earned all the headlines and accolades in the Denver Broncos' 31-19 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, but Tracy Porter scored the play of the game.It's not that Manning's play was poor.In fact, it was most likely decent enough to earn him another commercial endorsement to add to his current TV ads for Papa John's Pizza, Buick and DirecTV.He threw...

Daily Links: Denver Broncos News – 9/15/12

Denver Broncos News The Denver Broncos face a tough test in three days when they face the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome. A win here could set the tone for very solid season, though a loss likely won’t mean much as the Falcons are dominant in their own house. [DenverBroncos.com] The Playbook guys think Peyton Manning and the Broncos are poised to go 2-0 this week, with Von...

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...

Litmus test awaits Broncos defense in Atlanta

Denver, CO. Things could not have gone more perfectly for the Denver Broncos in week 1. A lot of the question marks this team had heading into the season seemed to be answered to varying degrees, and Peyton Manning proved he is far from washed up. The young receivers looked outstanding, as Demaryius Thomas running down the field in open space once again will haunt Pittsburgh...

Falcons Keys to Victory: Broncos Edition

In week two, the Falcons will take on a team that made the playoffs last season and also added a Hall of Fame quarterback to their team. This game takes place on Monday and as Falcons fans know, Monday night has not been kind to...
