How about a Shanny and Cutty reunion in Chi-Town?

Why not Shanahan as next Bears coach?

Why not Shanahan?  He’s an Oak Park, Illinois native who played at Eastern Illinois.  He led the Broncos to a pair of Super Bowl wins.  And he somehow managed to take an inherently dysfunctional Washington franchise to the postseason in 2012.

For all of our laughs at Cutler's expense over the years, it would be pretty awesome to see these two reunite and succeed.

Broncos think better of signing huge jerk, at least for now

The Broncos' visit with Richie Incognito reportedly "went well," but apparently not enough so to sign the jerk.

According to Incognito's workout partner and pretend journalist Jay Glazer, Denver will revisit the idea after their games at St. Louis and against Miami.

Broncos worked out Richie Incognito

Maybe John Elway doesn't like the Broncos' new status as America's most popular team.

Or, he thinks the offensive line sucks.

Either way, the Broncos worked out Richie Incognito on Monday, according to his comrade in meatheadedness Jay Glazer.

The Sanchize is back!

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Road games are supposed to be tough, but let's be honest - the Rams are terrible, especially in the fourth quarters of games.

Sure, they have a couple of big divisional wins over the Seahawks and Niners, but there's something about divisional matchups.

And of course, there are quite a few teams that have beaten the Seahawks and Niners this year.

Foot sprain to cost Ronnie Hillman at least two weeks

According to the DP, Ronnie Hillman will miss at least two weeks with a foot sprain he suffered at Oakland on Sunday.

Jay Cutler still sucks, and Matt Prater is still not automatic

Good Morning, Broncos fans! We'll open with a couple of notes from Sunday's Lions/Dolphins game.

Detroit (7-2) overcame a special-teams nightmare to pull off a last-minute 20-16 victory on a touchdown pass by Matthew Stafford.

Of direct interest to the Broncos, the Dolphins (5-4) lost left tackle Branden Albert for the season to a knee injury.

Gut Reaction: Week 10 - Broncos @ Raiders

We all find comfort in the familiar.

The flannel shirt you wore right out of the dryer, your girlfriend’s banana bread, a Showgirls marathon on TV—these are the things that make us whole.

But nothing gives comfort like a game against the Oakland Raiders.

Perhaps it’s the porous coverage or the liquid tackling. Or maybe it’s just the way Raiders fans act like they could bite the head off a bat but really go home and play 50 Shades of Grey.

Final Score: Broncos 41, Raiders 17 (Updated)

Emmanuel Sanders and Julius Thomas each caught a pair of touchdowns, while C.J. Anderson added 163 yards from scrimmage and a highlight reel 51-yard score.
