On Wednesday Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said he would like to return to the team for the 2015 season if it was okay with them.
A day later – Christmas Day – Broncos coach John Fox stunned no one when he said that the Broncos want Manning back for his 18th NFL season.
All signs point to Manning returning next season however there is always a chance injuries...
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The extra pounds are gone and so is the weight off Von Miller's shoulders.
Denver's slimmed-down strongside linebacker has bounced back from the worst year of his career to make 13 sacks and regain his status as one of the NFL's premier pass rushers. He's one of a league-high nine Broncos who were named to the Pro Bowl this week.
''It means a lot. Going through...

Peyton Manning's record-tying 14th Pro Bowl selection came on the heels of his worst performance in his three seasons with Denver that cost the Broncos a shot at home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
There's still little concern for coach John Fox, whose club can earn a first-round bye with a seventh straight victory over the visiting Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Strange as it sounds, John Fox finds himself needing to defend his five-time MVP quarterback.
''The sky's not falling. We're not getting ready to get rid of our quarterback. He's fine and, you know, we're all going to get better,'' Denver's coach proclaimed a day after one of Peyton Manning's worst games as a Bronco.
The Broncos (11-4) blew their shot at earning...

CINCINNATI -- The Bengals want no part of primetime. Not the games themselves, but rather the discussion that surrounds them anytime they are set to play in one of the NFL's marquee matchups.
Whether they want to talk about it or not, the Bengals have not done much to produce confidence in them when the sun goes down and the big stadium lights illuminate the field for all to see...

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) John Fox has no problem with nose tackle Terrance ''Pot Roast'' Knighton's Super Bowl bravado.
''I think that's been the goal all season,'' the Denver Broncos coach said when asked for his take on Knighton's Joe Namath-like guarantee over the weekend that Denver will win it all.
''I think guys said it way back. The key - and they understand this - is how we...

They haven’t followed a traditional script all season, so why would Sunday in San Diego be any different?
The Denver Broncos (11-3) clinched their fourth straight AFC West division title as they beat the San Diego Chargers (8-6) 22-10 in a game that saw more than a few twists. John Fox became the first AFC West coach since John Madden to win four AFC West division titles in a row...
The Denver Broncos announced Friday that they have reached an agreement with fourth-year cornerback Chris Harris on a five-year contract extension, through the 2019 season.
According to The Denver Post, Harris’ deal is worth $42.5 million and includes a $10 million signing bonus and $24 million in guarantees. He will...
The Denver Broncos have reverted to the run game the last two weeks and they have come away with victories in each contest.
Are we seeing a cover-up by offensive coordinator Adam Gase and head coach John Fox?
Every team in the NFL will run the ball until a defense can stop it.
In fact, over the past three weeks the Broncos have rumbled to 547 yards on the ground.
That is the most...

The Denver Broncos have rushed for 548 yards on 109 attempts over the last three games, while throwing for just 596 yards on 89 attempts. The new run-heavy game plan has raised external concern that the ground attack has knocked Peyton Manning out of rhythm.
“There’s no quarterback...
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The downshifting of Denver's high-octane offense doesn't mean the Broncos won't ''put our foot on the gas and throw it 50 times,'' insists coach John Fox.
So, the San Diego Chargers had better buckle up and get ready this week for either a gouging ground game or a return to the aerial fireworks.
''At the end of the day it's all about `Ws,''' said running back...

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas was active for Sunday’s game but spent the entire game sitting on the sideline.
Thomas never came close to playing in what ended up being an easy win over the Bills. Speaking after the game Broncos coach John Fox said that Thomas could have played if he was needed.
“He got a week better,” said Fox. “He’s healing. He was close. We went with...
In many ways, it has been a roller coaster for this year’s Denver Broncos.
There were the early games, where Denver was winning but not particularly impressive. John Fox would call these “they get paid too” games. Then there were the games where Denver looked almost unstoppable. Certainly the contests against San Francisco and Arizona fall under this category. Then came the...
The Denver Broncos have been searching for a kicker since early October. Head Coach John Fox was hoping it was a simple fix but it proved otherwise.
The team released Pro-Bowl kicker Matt Prater October 3rd for seemingly his long list of disciplinary reasons and found swooped up Brandon McManus fro the New York Jets. Nether move went smoothly. Fox and company are hoping Connor Barth...

Consider this Sunday’s game between the Broncos and the Chiefs a bit of a throwback. Both teams are good, both teams have aspirations well beyond just making the playoffs and both can still win the AFC West. Those factors combined with the fact they’re playing at Arrowhead, at night, in late November and this has instant classic written...
The Denver Broncos suffered several injuries during Sunday’s 39-36 victory over the Miami Dolphins.
Linebacker Brandon Marshall will go through the league-mandated post-concussion protocol, while cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Kayvon Webster are “day-to-day” with hamstring and shoulder injuries, head coach John Fox announced...
The Broncos host the Dolphins on Sunday, the first home game for Denver since Peyton Manning ripped the scoreboard operator after the Broncos 35-21 win over the Chargers.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Broncos scoreboard operator has met with two different Broncos executives to discuss what is “appropriate and...
John Fox said the Broncos felt “fudgy” about Julius Thomas during practice on Friday. Thomas who had been out of practice for two days showed up Friday with his helmet, but it was a hand accessory. Emmanuel Sanders saw little birds circling his head after a vicious hit he sustained against St Louis, but miraculously he has cleared the NFL concussion protocol and is expected...
Facts: How bad is the loss to the Rams last week? Very bad! Most likely, the Broncos will have to go on the road during the playoffs to get to the Super Bowl, and believe me the Broncos will not survive another trip to New England. The only game the Patriots are likely to lose is at Green Bay, other than that they will win out, so the Broncos need a minor miracle to obtain home field...
If the NFL season ended right now, with most teams having played 10 games, the playoff match-ups would be interesting. Some of the usual suspects (New England and Denver) would be taking part, while some preseason contenders (Seattle and San Francisco) would be on the outside looking in. Some surprise teams (Detroit and Kansas City) would be playing, while others (Miami and Buffalo...
It doesn’t take long for the pressure to mount in the NFL. Eleven weeks into the 2014 season, plenty of people find themselves under the microscope, trying to answer questions about their most-recent performance.
Who is in that spot? Here are five on the hot seat this weekend:
5. John Fox
People in Denver are getting fed up with Fox
He’s won three straight AFC West titles...
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Suddenly, the Denver Broncos have a whole lot more to worry about than their spongy offensive line, and testy coach John Fox said Monday he wants frustrated fans to know he feels their pain.
''We're not too happy with the results, either,'' Fox said in the wake of Denver's second double-digit road loss in three weeks. But, he added: ''There's no panic inside...

John Fox doesn’t know whether he’s coming or going.
Sunday’s loss to the St. Louis Rams was ugly; there’s no way to sugar coat it. The Broncos are a mess, and it starts with Fox.
“I think we all stunk,” Fox said after a loss to New England three weeks ago.
Well, this weekend, they stunk even worse.
Peyton Manning was bad. Despite his 389 passing yards, it was perhaps...
He’s won three consecutive AFC West titles; his team is the defending AFC Champions, leading their division again and on track for a possible return to the Super Bowl. Yet, John Fox is on something of a hot seat.
And you know who’s to blame for that? John Fox is. And he’s apparently feeling that heat.
If Fox was comfortable with the direction of his football team, he would...
