The Penalty Flag:
Knowshon Moreno has been resurrected from the Denver Broncos’ purgatory. Inactive for the last eight games, Moreno has been called to action with the injury to Willis McGahee. Willis injured his knee last week and is out until the championship round of the playoffs. Quite possibly, this will be Knowshon’s last chance.
His first two touches, one run and one pass resulted in a net of minus two yards. By the end of the first quarter, which was dominated by the Kansas City Chiefs, Moreno and the Broncos trailed 6-0.
The Chiefs came out on fire, limiting the Peyton Manning offensive juggernaut to only 32 yards. Despite 97 yards of offense, the Chiefs only managed two field goals.… Read more

Defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson heard both of those messages from the Denver Broncos in the offseason and complied with both.
The result has been one of the strongest seasons in his seven-year NFL career - and at a bargain to boot.

Greg Schiano didn't have to follow the NFL closely over the past decade-plus to keep up with the exploits of Peyton Manning.

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer Before the season begins, almost every team puts these words near the top of a long list of goals: ''Win the division.''
That's all but a foregone conclusion in Denver, though when the Broncos wrap up the AFC West, there won't be much of a celebration. They didn't bring Peyton Manning...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer Tight ends are no longer an afterthought in Denver's passing game.
In 2009, they had all of 27 catches.
Last year, that number was just 30 - not a single one of them in the end zone - as they were basically used as big bruising blockers in Tim Tebow's read-option offense.
Last week: 6 (+2)

DVOA: 35.0% (3rd)
Weighted DVOA: 36.1% (3rd)

Man, what is up with the Ronnie Hillman situation. Not only did I colossally miss, he wasn’t even given a chance to make an impact. He got three carries for nine yards. Meanwhile, Knowshon Moreno got the start and all the work thanks to his pass blocking.
Talk about frustrating, that move surprised me more than anything else in fantasy football this year.
Meanwhile, in another...
