They looked scared, and it was embarrassing

Good Morning, Broncos fans! 2014 training camp may be just a week away, but until then, 2013 is still fair game.

On Tuesday, ESPN loudmouth Stephen A. Smith asked Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner if the Broncos appeared intimidated during SB 48.

Predictably, Wagner responded in the affirmative:

Orton beats Cowboys in game of chicken

The Cowboys have surprisingly relented their game of chicken with Kyle Orton, opting to release the backup quarterback.

Throughout the offseason, Orton made clear that he had no intention of reporting to the team, skipping OTAs and offseason workouts.

He reportedly prefers to retire.

Hopefully, Osweiler is at least a better QB than this guy was

Andrew Walter running for office, to host firearms-related fundraiser
www.cbssports.com

On Friday, Walter is hosting an “Evening of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms” at a Scottsdale gun club, reports the Arizona Republic.

Contributors forking over $1,000 will get 250 rounds of ammunition and a chance to fire from three weapons. Donations of $250 will get you one box of ammo and a chance to fire a Glock 18.

Andrew Walter is the failed former Raider QB who Brock Osweiler interned for during the offseason.  Living here, I can say that there is some truth to the statement in the article that Arizonans love them some guns, but this is just a ridiculous way to do a fundraiser, in a state where Gabby Giffords got shot and 6 other people got killed just three years ago by some gun nut.  Walter's opponent, if he wins his primary, will be Democratic incumbent Kyrsten Sinema.  She's best known for being the first openly bisexual congresscritter, and for having the guts to list no religious affiliation.

“Dick Stockton in an airport, telling me — and again, I didn’t tell him, like, ‘I do a 10-2 show and I’m gonna mention this tomorrow’ — but I certainly didn’t hide the fact that I’m in the business,” Paulsen said. “And he just kind of offered that. He said, ‘Yea, I was going to do it with Mike Shanahan, but it sounds like that’s not happening anymore.’”

Any time in the National Football League, when you have a chance to get a two-time SB-winning coach into the broadcast booth, you go for it.

Graham sets bar for Julius

Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! As tends to happen with wealthy people, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam will be spared prison time for the massive fraud perpetrated by his truck stop company.

To avoid federal prosecution, Pilot Flying J will pay a $92M penalty, on top of the reported $85M it's dishing out to settle a class-action suit.

The company, owned by Haslam and his brother, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, had cheated its customers out of rebates.

Vikings will keep trying to hide homophobia; Kluwe to sue team

Now that the Vikings have completed their investigation into the homophobia alleged to have been rampant in their organization, they are refusing to release the findings.

Obviously, the independent probe must have confirmed Chris Kluwe's accusations, the ones that hacks like Kevin Seifert suggested were ill-founded.

Perhaps London won’t be calling for an NFL team

Good Morning, Broncos fans! There's been frequent talk over the years about an NFL team calling London home.

But according to Mike Florio, that's never going to happen.

As Florio explains, the league would be better off hosting more games in London, with different teams.

Funny you mention it, Joel

Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! Are tight ends underpaid?

It's a valid question, put in the spotlight by Jimmy Graham's recent franchise tag dispute with the Saints.

Graham led the league in receiving touchdowns, trailed only Jamaal Charles in total scores, and ranked 13th and 15th in receptions and yards, respectively.

Good on you, Brandon Marshall

Good Morning, Broncos fans! With a dozen days until training camp begins, we're in the ultimate football news dead zone.

However, I did come across a terrific article about an old friend, in the current ESPN magazine.

The subject? Brandon Marshall, his maturation, and his role in spreading mental health awareness.
