Where should Peyton Manning set up shop in 2012?

Across the Twitterverse & various social media sites, the world of sports talk radio and water coolers (I used the term loosely) everywhere, a single name dominated Monday’s conversations. The BCS Championship Game was just hours away, but those discussions of title splits, SEC fatigue, Nick Saban’s countenance and Les Miles’ creativity were an afterthought. [...]

We talk about “The 12th Man” and home field advantage at every turn. In the final weeks of the NFL season, we watch as team’s vie for those coveted spots and then dole out playing time in line with whether that objective is met or fades away. If you’re a Steelers fan traveling to Denver [...]

Joe Flacco became the latest NFL player to chime on the phenomenon of Tim Tebow. It’s a story that has shifted beyond the walls of the sporting world and has created a larger dialogue (have some questioned their faith?). I understand there is frustration associated with the 24-hour “All Tebow, All The Time” coverage. I [...]

Get yourself some inspiration on a Sunday morning & hit the ground running. As expected, he went overtime, and Sharpe didn’t disappoint. “Determination … Dedication … and Discipline” Sharpe’s Speech

It appeared that Tebow was going to be “THE Guy” in Denver coming into camp. Rumors circulated about trades involving Kyle Orton and it was assumed that “The Tebow Era” was set to begin. Instead, Orton came to Broncos camp and outplayed Tebow to run back to the top spot. Faced with the prospect of [...]

Imagine getting that call …. Von Miller got his call in the green room and the emotions poured from him. That’s damn fine. Miller has an explosive first step and immediate upgrades the Denver defense, a unit that was torched with great regularity in 2010. He grades out brilliantly in terms of straight physicality. Remember, [...]

The Denver Broncos hired John Elway into the front office, and he’s quickly ushered in a new age of openness. He’s Tweeting with fans and detailing the team’s efforts toward hiring a new coach. Unfortunately, the Broncos are having a difficult time getting coaches to make the trip up to Denver. The 49ers jumped the [...]

It’s only appropriate that my mind drifts to the famous NFL Films “The Autumn Wind” clip (see it here ) as news begins to circulate about the possibility of Mike Leach sailing his pirate ship to Maryland. That battle cry is also playing loudly as the Raiders get set for a Week 15 battle against [...]

The Broncos jettisoned head coach Josh McDaniels on Monday, one day after Denver sustained another tough defeat. This time out, Denver dropped a low-scoring affair on the road in Kansas City. Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd joined our friends at 104.3 The Fan in Denver to discuss the situation, how he heard about the news and [...]

You can smell it in the air. As sure as the smell of burning firewood and the month-long gluttony that is the holiday season, the Chargers are set to begin their late-season push to the playoffs. The Chargers fell behind 7-0 early, as Kyle Orton went to work ahead of a Knowshon Moreno touchdown plunge [...]

I had to pick a song reference that wasn’t “London Calling.” I love the tune, but it’s borderline played out. The 49ers ruled Alex Smith out of Sunday’s game against the Broncos overseas. Smith sustained a separated shoulder in Week 7 against the Panthers and will be unavailable for the game. David Carr entered the [...]

I want to give a nod to Baltimore running Ray Rice, who took on a huge workload for the victorious Ravens. Rice piled up a sizable touch count and scored twice against a strong Denver run defense to help the Ravens coast to victory. However, I have to look at this from the Fantasy angle. [...]

No Garcon … no problem. Peyton Manning topped the RZ-deficient Broncos, and did so by calling Austin Collie’s number again … and again … and again. I am glad to be able to say this, though. Brandon Marshall had a big game, and though he was on our list of players for whom to “temper [...]

As we approach the holiday weekend, I thought it only appropriate to do a quick-hit, rapid-fire run through the news stories hitting the wire as we race out the door to barbeques, college football tailgates and face-painting design meetings. Did I go too far? Let’s run through five stories on the wire right now, starting [...]

Harmon had an opportunity to catch up with Heisman winner, National Champion and first-round pick of the Broncos, Tim Tebow. They talk about the combine, draft day, the interview with Josh McDaniels & the whirlwind ride to training camp. Check it out here .

The glorious three-day spectacle that is the NFL Draft came to a close on Saturday afternoon. The months of rumor, conjecture and speculation ended with the selection of wide receiver Tim Toone by the Lions. Fans will sit and criticize or laud the efforts of their respective GMs. Shrines will be built to the expected [...]
