Trotter is a senior writer at Sports Illustrated and covers the National Football League from California. Trotter talks about the effect that the 49ers and Patriots games will have on each team. Trotter thinks that the result will be positive for the 49ers, but not that significant for the Patriots.  He also talks about the NFC's race towards the Super Bowl. Trotter picked the 49ers to make the Super Bowl before the season and is going to stick with his pick."With Colin, the offense is more vertical and they feel that its more dynamic because he will take more chances down the field" said Trotter.Trotter also talks about the progression of the Denver Broncos and doesn't think that anyone can beat them at Mile High Stadium in the playoffs. Trotter also sa...

Miller to Make Final Push to Win DPOY Honors

When it comes to defensive awards, sacks don’t mean everything.  But they don’t hurt, either. Last season, Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller won Defensive Rookie of the Year honors despite recording fewer sacks (11.5) then San Francisco’s Aldon Smith (14).  This year, the scenario is different. Miller won as a rookie because Smith was—and in some circles, still is...

Broncos might get Tracy Porter back this week

The Denver Broncos defense has played at a high level with starting cornerback Tracy Porter and the good news is that he might be back this week against the Browns. Porter, though, started practicing three weeks ago and there’s a decent chance he will play, if in a limited role, this week against the Cleveland Browns. “As far as Tracy goes, they’re all competitors,” Broncos...

John Fox says he won’t rest Peyton Manning prior to the playoffs

The Denver Broncos are arguably the hottest team in the NFL right now and head coach John Fox has made it clear that he doesn’t plan on resting any of his starters as we approach the playoffs and that includes quarterback Peyton Manning. “That has not been an option, and not something that we’ll talk about,” Fox said, per USA Today Sports. “Right now, our main agenda is...

If the Season Ended Today: AFC’s Second Seed

As the chart from NFL.com shows, the Denver Broncos would be the No. 2 seed in the AFC Playoff race if the season ended today. “Right now, I know we can control our own destiny, but if we don’t play our best game against Cleveland this week, that will be all for naught,” Coach John Fox said on Monday.  ”So all our focus will be on the Cleveland Browns, a team that’s won...

Joe Thomas has high praise for Denver’s Von Miller

Joe Thomas has blocked the best the NFL has to offer in his career. When asked about the challenge facing the offensive line this week in their game against the Denver Broncos, Thomas had nothing but high praise for outside LB Von Miller- “He may be the fastest guy on their defense, corners and safeties included. I don’t know if he runs a 4.5 or a 4.4 or whatever he is, but...

(Image courtesy of Scout.com) On Tuesday, PFT reported that Broncos rookie center Quentin Saulsberry was suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.  Saulsberry marks the fourth Bronco in the past year to have been suspended for PED abuse.

Dennis Pitta’s big game against the Broncos has become par for the course for the Denver D

Dennis Pitta is why you pay attention to fantasy defenses by position. The Broncos have been strong against the pass on the season but gave up the 2nd most fantasy points on the season to opposing Tight Ends coming in to this week’s contest. While many of Pitta’s yards came on a nifty play down the middle that probably shouldn't have gone for a score (missed tackles) it...
