Calm down! It’s just a game. In fact, it actually means less than most games the Broncos will play this year. In fact, it’s no more important than the Arizona game the week after the bye. In fact, it actually means LESS than that game because it’s more important to win at home. Hey, this game against Seattle is as meaningless as it gets. Except, it’s not. It should be....

Five things Broncos starters need to show us Saturday

If I had my druthers, the Denver Broncos would play their starters only minimally on Saturday. I’m not worrying about Peyton Manning’s ability to perform anymore. I’m not worried that the offensive line will fold under pressure.
