On Wednesday, two Denver Bronco players — one offensive and one defensive — will be ranked between 41-and-50 on NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2012, the network has confirmed.

In case you haven’t been listening to the radio, this is a parody of Gotye’s “Somebody I Used To Know.” It focuses on a Indianapolis Colts fan and a Denver Broncos fan dealing with the departures of Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow from their team.
Can’t beat starting your day with a little football humor!
Jim Harbaugh came out today and just flat out lied, saying that the 49ers had Alex Smith in their plans all along. He claimed that they were never really trying to replace him with Peyton Manning, just exploring their options.
