This goddamn ***** Hurricane Sandy is making things complicated. The ***** has forced me to put in work early on my Week Nine pieces, so excuse us for the lack of introductions. We are just gonna jump right into some Real Talk funk.More after the jump:
-In desperate need of RB depth? Look no further than Ronnie Hillman. Willis McGahee’s backup carried the rock 14 times for 86 yards Sunday night, and finally looks ready to make a hard-working porn star and carry the load (should anything happen to McGahee of course). While Hillman only had one reception (for negative yardage), it should be noted that he is a real asset in the passing game that hasn’t been fully utilized yet by Peyton Manning. Hillman is a much more versatile back than McGahee, so even if Willis holds up all year (not a guarantee considering his physical style of play), Hillman could still work his way into a 10-12 touch-per-week situation. Either way, it makes sense to ros...

Poor dad. That dude is probably working double shifts to try and pay for these tickets for his wife and daughter and...

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because coach John Fox hadn't yet addressed the media Monday. The Denver Post...
The Denver Broncos are relieved Peyton Manning wasn't seriously injured on a hard hit by New Orleans Saints defensive end Martez Wilson.
The Broncos are expected to have the NFL look at the play from Sunday night's game in which Manning banged his right thumb on Wilson's helmet just before the crown of that helmet hit the quarterback in the chin.
Although no flag was...
DENVER -- Peyton Manning brushed aside a bloodied thumb to come out on top in his matchup with onetime Super Bowl rival Drew Brees. Manning threw three touchdown passes and twice oversaw scoring drives covering more than 90 yards to lead the Denver Broncos past the New Orleans Saints 34-14 Sunday night. Two of the scoring passes came after he tore his thumbnail when he struck...
The Denver Broncos can ill-afford an injury to Peyton Manning. And Peyton Manning surely doesn't want to be sidelined again after missing time due to his surgically repaired neck. Fortunately, his thumb is doing alright after being struck by the helmet of New Orleans Saints defensive end Martez Wilson.
According to a report released by the Associated Press, Manning&...

Manning is STILL getting better.Uh Oh.In a display of aerial mastery unseen since, well, the last time he did it, Peyton Manning ripped the Saints defense apart for 305 yards and three touchdowns. By doing so, the Broncos laid a good beating upon...
Drew Brees came to Denver and surpassed John Elway. He was no match for Peyton Manning.
Brees welcomed back New Orleans Saints interim coach Joe Vitt from his bounty banishment by extending his NFL record to 50 straight games with a touchdown toss, the 300th of his career. He added another just before the 2-minute warning that surpassed Elway for sixth on the career list.
Due to Hurricane Sandy, the NFL announced on Monday that the Week 8 trading deadline will be moved from it’s originally scheduled Tuesday time frame to 4 p.m. ET on Thursday, Nov. 1. The hurricane has caused several East Coast teams—and the NFL’s New York-based league offices—to cancel Monday operations, which would make a Tuesday deadline tricky for a handful of teams...
