Despite Colorado passing Amendment 64 and Washington State passing a smillar measure Tuesday, which will allow individuals over the age of 21 to legally possess upto one ounce of marijuana and grow up to six plants in their homes, marijuana will remain prohibited under the NFL's substance abuse policy. "The NFL's policy is collectively bargained and will continue to apply in the same manner it has for decades," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told USA TODAY Sports Wednesday morning. "Marijuana remains prohibited under the NFL substance abuse program." NFL players living in both Washington and Colorado will be legally allowed to possess marijuana, but there could still be ramifications for smoking it. Players are subject to suspensions, which could be upto four games for failed drug tests. "The Colorado and Washington laws will have no impact on the operation of the policy," Aiello said.

PackersTakes previously applauded Peyton Manning’s keen business decision to open up 21 Papa John’s franchises in anticipation of the state of Colorado passing Amendment 64, allowing for the legal, recreational use of Mary Jane. Since Tuesday night the topic of discussion has been the inevitable showdown between Colorado (and Washington State) and the big, bad federal government...
As anyone who has watched any amount of television over the past few weeks knows, Peyton Manning appeared in a commercial for Papa John’s in which he creepily calls the pizza chain’s owner “Papa” instead of John for some reason, and attempts to get him to give away two million free pizzas. What you may not know, however, is that Manning has gotten into the pizza business...
Want more evidence of Peyton Manning’s superior intellect and business acumen hidden beneath that awe-shucks hillbilly exterior?
@darrenrovell: A week before Colorado legalizes marijuana, Manning acquires 21 Papa John’s franchises in the state. Guy can do no wrong.
It was early November in Cincinnati. The Broncos quarterback dropped back to pass, found a receiver open for a 30-yard gain.
Four plays later, Denver scored the winning touchdown and John Elway, in his 16th and final season, had the 39th game-winning drive of the 40 he would engineer in the fourth quarter or overtime.
Fast forward 15 years to another November day in Cincinnati...
The folks at Grantland came up with Tim Tebow's E-mail Hacked! Hang in there because at least the Roger Goodell note is funny. That's a GL record.

Will the Arkansas economy improve with the next Arkansas football coach hire? That might sound crazy, but Peyton Manning has apparently helped the economy in Denver.
Well at least the Bengals were competitive in this one. For a while there it didn’t look great. After the 105 yard kickoff return to start the second half you start to wonder if this team will EVER get it together. Then they reel off 14 points to take the lead. Peyton Manning and the Broncos were on the ropes! This was their chance, and they let it slip away. Also, don’t forget...
Before the first NFL game kicked off in 2012 everything was sliced, diced and broken down for us by all the experts who raised questions and made predictions as well. Right now entering week 10 of the NFL season, many questions have been answered, some predictions have come true but currently, these three players not only exceeded expectations, they are leaders in their respective...
LAST WEEK: 9-4
SEASON: 85-46 (65%)
The Colts lost to the Jags already, but this seems like a much better team now. This is a game they need to win to be in the playoff hunt.
Eli Manning has had a really rough stretch, but the Bengals secondary is just what he needs to rebound. Expect some big numbers coming from this offense.
Last week: 5 (+0)
The Broncos sit at 5-3 and rank 2nd in yards per play differential and 9th in rate of sustaining drives differential with momentum on their side and they’ve done this despite one of the toughest schedules in the league thus far. From this point on, they have one of the league’s easiest schedules, with games against Tampa Bay, Carolina, San Diego...
Last week: 9 (+2)
If the playoffs were to start today, Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts would travel to the Denver Broncos to play Peyton Manning, who through 8 games, has exactly the same amount of passing yards as his replacement Luck, 2404. The Colts are 4-1 in their last 5, since Chuck Pagano had to leave the team to undergo treatment for Leukemia, with that...
