When voting for the 2012 Pro Bowl, fans can vote for Denver Broncos middle linebacker Keith Brooking twice on the same ballot.
In a possible glitch on NFL.com, the Pro Bowl ballot has Brooking listed both as an ILB—inside linebacker—and OLB—outside linebacker—for the Broncos. Denver’s two other OLBs listed are Von Miller and Wesley Woodyard.
The Broncos were presumably given room to place four linebackers on the ballot, but with just three starters—Brooking, Miller, and Woodyard—Brooking somehow has shown up on the ballot twice. With fans having the ability to cast an unlimited number of votes, however, being listed twice does not giving Brooking much of an advantage in the voting.
A five-time Pro Bowl selection (2001, ’02, ’03, ’04, ’05), Brooking is a fifteenth-year veteran who joined the Broncos just before the start of the regular season and has started in eight games on defense, recording 36 tackles. At age 37, Brooking is the oldest player on Denver’s roster, one year older than wide receiver Brandon Stokley and quarterback Peyton Manning.
Brooking’s fellow linebackers Von Miller and Wesley Woodyard are having phenomenal seasons and have received the most and second-most early Pro Bowl votes among AFC outside linebackers. Combined, Miller and Woodyard have recorded 133 tackles, 16 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, and 3 interceptions this season.
Fan voting will remain open until the end of all Week 15 games on Monday, December 17. The 2012 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 27, 2013 and televised live on NBC at 5 p.m. MST from Honolulu, Hawaii.

The Broncos are looking like a Super Bowl contender. Do they have enough defense to take out the Patriots this postseason?
After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day. For the season that makes it 106-57. I'm still in striking distance of .750 for the season.
Let's take a look at week 12.

Broncos 17, Chiefs 9 — you know what a victory means, fellas. Give out your BT Game Balls!
RB Knowshon Moreno.
I will be the first one to say (and most obvious), this guy hasn’t had a play of significance since he fumbled back in Week Two. He hasn’t had a decent game since Week Thirteen of 2010 (which just so happened to be against the Kansas City Chiefs), when he ran...

After ranking 23rd overall in 2011, the Denver Broncos offense has turned things around this season.
Last season, the Broncos ranked 25-of-32 among teams in points scored (309) and scored 30 points in a game on just two occasions. Needless to say, the Broncos have made great improvements in 2012.
This season, the Broncos have scored 30 points...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer Champ Bailey insists the script in Denver is finally going to flip this year.
For most of the last decade, the Broncos have made late-season swoons an annual rite of winter in the Rocky Mountains.
Altitude. Aptitude. Attitude. Whatever the reasons, the Broncos have followed strong starts...
The ladies love starting RBs Juan…
I’ll be the first to admit that I did not see this coming. Week 12 and we are talking about freakin Knowshon Moreno as a fantasy starter? We thought this might be a three headed monster today and even with t0 he news of Moreno ‘starting’, no one could of thought he would get 24 touches vs 3 for Hillman and 0 for Ball.
The fast answer is yes. One way or another Patriots Offensive Coordinator will finally get the decision to draft Knowshon Moreno right after all. The back story...Josh McDaniels is terrible at drafting. McDaniels, the onetime wunderkind took over the Mike Shanahan's Denver Broncos after the 2008 season. He started off promising enough opening the 2009 [...]
(AP) -- The Denver Broncos are comfortably atop the AFC West, but now they'll have to replace a key offensive contributor.
A dominant defense led by Von Miller should help soothe any concerns.
With Willis McGahee out, Miller and the defense could be poised for yet another dominant performance Sunday against the lowly Kansas City Chiefs.
