Alert the FAA, Superman has been grounded.Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, the number one overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft and last season’s Offensive Rookie of the Year, was frustrated from the opening gun to the end of the game by a relentless Denver pass rush as the Broncos routed the Panthers 36-14 Sunday afternoon in Charlotte.Each time one of Denver’s defenders would make a play, they would mock Newton’s trademark Superman pose.

The Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is an exciting player to watch. He has a consistent motor and makes big plays for his team. Earlier after sacking quarterback Cam Newton he mocked Newton’s superman touchdown celebration, and then he added this dance after Newton was safetied. You gotta love his enthusiasm.
Denver Broncos executive vice president of football operations John Elway told USA TODAY Sports that when they signed Peyton Manning they felt like it was a risk worth taking despite all the neck procedures he underwent.

Broncos Von Miller made a promise last week that when he sacked Panthers QB Cam Newton he would do Cam’s Superman move in celebration. Somewhere along the way Von abandoned those plans- possibly because he wasn’t credited with the safety- and instead busted out this little move in celebration. I wonder if he had [...]

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Denver Broncos coach John Fox had the right idea when he wanted to deflect attention upon returning to Bank of America Stadium to face his former employer. He brought along Peyton Manning and a stifling defense. In another efficient performance, Manning and the Broncos overwhelmed the Carolina Panthers in a 36-14 outcome Sunday afternoon. Fox, who was coach...

Newton and Carolina scored first in the contest with a four yard pass to tight end Greg Olsen. With 1:39 left in the first quarter Manning found a familiar target...
