Is Brandon McManus the Broncos’ next long-term placekicker?

K Brandon McManus Making A Case To Stay In Denver

McManus signed a deal that would pay him $420,000 this year and $510,000 in 2015, when Prater’s base salary jumps to $3.25 million.
That’s no small consideration for a team that has several stars coming up for big long-term contracts, including Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas and Chris Harris Jr.
McManus wants to stay here with them. He sees Denver not as a stopover but as his destination.
“I think that’s the only way you can look at it,” he said.

McManus still has plenty to prove - touchbacks and short field goals at SAF@MH are as easy as an NFL kicking job gets. But so far, so good.

Drunk driving facilitator questions NFL’s morality

NFL sponsor Anheuser-Busch 'concerned' by 'recent incidents'

“We are disappointed and increasingly concerned by the recent incidents that have overshadowed this NFL season,” the statement read. “We are not yet satisfied with the league’s handling of behaviors that so clearly go against our own company culture and moral code. We have shared our concerns and expectations with the league.”

Anheuser-Busch doesn't like NFL fans engaging in all of this talk about domestic violence and child abuse.

After all, every moment spent talking during a tailgate or game is a moment that's not spent getting loaded...before getting behind the wheel and putting innocent lives at risk, of course.

Report: Wes Welker reinstated, can play at Seattle on Sunday

According to Jason La Canfora, Wes Welker's suspension has officially ended, and he will be eligible to practice on Wednesday and play on Sunday in Seattle.

La Canfora says the NFL and players' union will announce the ratification of the new drug policy on Wednesday morning.

Is this really what we’ve come to, Broncos fans?

Broncos fans start Change.org petition to ban CBS’ Phil Simms from Denver broadcasts

Simms drew the ire of Denver fans and set off a Twitter tirade from Broncos Nation on Sunday after he said ‘I don’t mean to root against Denver, but ...’ during the broadcast.

When fan activism insanity seemingly influences a team's choice of starting quarterback, what's a measly internet petition, amirite?

The latest on Adrian Peterson

On Monday, Adrian Peterson issued a statement regarding his recent arrest on child abuse charges in Texas.

Within it, Peterson says he disciplines his children much in the same way he was punished by his own parents.

But what Peterson views to be functional parenting is apparently not just a Peterson family-specific thing.

Evaluating Brandon Marshall

When the news broke that Danny Trevathan would go out with an injury, so did the hearts of many Denver Broncos fans. Last summer, Terrance ‘Pot Roast’ Knighton was asked who the most important defensive player was. Without hesitation, he named Danny Trevathan.

The only good news was that Denver was flush with talented young linebackers. They have Von Miller back from injury and starting to develop his old skills, while Nate Irving is opening some eyes. Denver’s young linebackers looked good in camp and preseason. 

Denver had again picked up a quality player. This time, the lowly Jaguars didn’t see a future for him. Richard Smith and Jack Del Rio disagreed. As I’ve said before, I don’t argue with those two regarding linebacking.

At least the Broncos have their health

For all the talk of second halves, third downs, penalties, and time of possession, Denver's apparent excellent health is easy to overlook.

Granted, that may be more about luck than something worth commending, but given the particular brutality of last Sunday's games, we're taking note.

Much of Chargers’ win over Seahawks is nearly impossible to replicate

Good Morning, Broncos fans! So, what was behind the Broncos' five offside penalties on Sunday?

As John Fox sees it, the Chiefs weren't quite playing by the rules.

The coach says KC center Rodney Hudson's "squatting and turning of the head fairly abruptly" was bad enough to warrant sending to the league for review.
