Tony Carter, a 5-foot-9, 175-pound cornerback, was engulfed by the media in the Broncos' locker room this week. He seemed a little shocked, but he handled the attention usually reserved for a star player as best he could. How he plays against quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots' passing attack in the AFC championship game Sunday is a bigger, more important matter. After spending much of the season on the bench because of a series of early season mistakes, Carter has been thrust into the spotlight because starting cornerback Chris Harris went down with a knee injury in Denver's divisional playoff victory over San Diego last Sunday. Carter said he's ready. "My confidence is always high, no matter if I'm playing or not playing," he said. "We'll be ready. It's a big game, so there's no time for thinking about what did and didn't happen." Head coach John Fox and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio aren't about...

Bailey set for larger role vs. Pats, no 'pitch count' on Sunday

Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey has been used only in a limited role this season, due to a foot injury that has sidelined him most of 2014, and more importantly, the effects of father time.

You're in Broncos Country Now, Tommy

As I watched Phillip Rivers throw a tantrum on the sidelines, I couldn’t help but smile. I breathed a sigh of relief as the clock reached zero. Not only had the Broncos exorcised their demons from 2013, they had done it at the expense of Mr. Bolo Tie himself.It is a great feeling to be sure; however, the next challenge won’t be so easy. The New England Patriots were waiting for...

AFC Championship: Patriots vs Broncos Preview & Prediction

I've been picking games all year long.  I've given them to you on this very website from week 1 til now.  My regular season record was (160 - 95 - 1).  My pre-season Super Bowl pick was 49ers over the Texans.  My predicted winner is alive but the prophecy of the Texans being the AFC's best was reversed to worst in the conference.  Sorry Houston, I caused a problem...

Rob Ninkovich still not entirely pleased with defensive effort against Broncos in first meeting

When the Broncos played the Patriots in the regular season, Denver running back Knowshon Moreno ran all over the New England defense; accumulating 224 yards. Those 224 yards were the most any running back has run for during the Belichick regime, and that fact is not lost on Patriots defensive end Rob Ninkovich."It definitely bothers you, of course...when they are able to run...
