PLAYERS: Peyton Manning
TEAMS: Denver Broncos
Head coach John Fox at 2013 mini-camp (Photo Credit: Justin Edmonds/Getty Images)One month. One month and well, one day, until Denver Bronco football returns. Pre-season of course, but football nonetheless. In the first two weeks of pre-season, the Broncos visit the powerhouse teams of the NFC West, and the only two teams ranked above them according to’s power rankings. Unfortunately, the Denver Broncos don’t get to meet these teams again in the regular season, therefore, we won’t be able to see Manning pair up against Kaepernick or Wilson, though I feel the roar from Seattle Seahawks’ Qwest Stadium will still be deafening, even in week 2 of the pre-season. Looking ahead, however, to when the games start to matter, or at least go on the record books, is a new and improved offensive line, 60 percent of which has been playing alongside each other since 2011, according to independent analyst Andrew Mason, from Left guard Zane Beadles says he loves the new tempo the offensive line has with Manning, according to the Mason article. “I think it could be a huge advantage for us. And, it’s a lot of fun,” Beadles said. “It is a challenge for us, but at the same time, it’s fun for us to be able to take on that challenge.” He goes on to say how comfortable Manning is with the offensive line, and visa versa, which is a complete circle from last year at this time. Right guard Louis Vasquez, who signed with the Broncos from an unrestricted free-agency as a Charger, said in a press conference that there were a few things that affected his decision to sign with the Denver Broncos. “The chance to win a ring, and be amongst good guys,” Vasquez said. “Location, it’s not a bad place to live either. And it’s a lot cheaper then living out in the West Coast.” A better view too, if you ask me. One more month, football fans. One. more. month.

DL Derek Wolfe has taken on leadership role for Broncos: ‘As long as we win and I have a ring on my finger at the end of the year, that’s all that really matters’

Going into his sophomore season in the NFL, defensive lineman Derek Wolfe is hungry to build on a six-sack rookie season. On a team filled with veterans, it’s not commonplace that a second-year player takes on a leadership role. However, Wolfe isn’t your ordinary young player and he wants more than being a leader, he want to be a champion. For Wolfe, his rookie season is...

Fantasy Profile: Peyton Manning

Hey Juan, I did have 6 yards rushing last season… 2012 Recap:  Peyton Manning was an iron man by NFL standards until multiple neck surgeries cost him the entire 2011 season.  He was then let go by the team he loved and John Elway (not to be confused with yours truly) swooped him up and brought him to the Mile High City.  Manning’s arm strength wasn’t what it was in his prime...
