Silver: Tom Brady could leave Patriots after 2014 season

Is Tom Brady jealous of Peyton Manning's weapons?
www.nfl.com

“Oh, you know he had to be hot,” one of Brady’s former teammates said Sunday. “Look at what he’s got, and look at what they give Peyton. How can he not be jealous?”

Or, in the words of a Broncos player: “He had to be saying, ‘(Expletive) this (expletive). Look at all these weapons Peyton’s got. Where are my weapons? What the (expletive)?’ “

Not that he's going to get moved or anything, but if he's still on the Patriots roster come Week 17, Brady's 2015-2017 salaries ($24M in total) become fully guaranteed.

Mike Holmgren reportedly visited Raiders

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Having dispatched one of the league's last unbeaten teams with relative ease, the Broncos will face a squad at the other end of the spectrum in Week 6.

Denver heads east to play the Jets, who find themselves amidst a four-game losing streak and turmoil that grows by the day.

“It’s a lot of little things,” Cutler said of the offense. “Turnovers are hurting us. Turnovers at critical times have hurt us, especially in the second half. We’ve been able to overcome them in the first half, but some of these second-half [turnovers] are hurting us. I’ve got to look at those.”

We blame Cutler for a lot, and certainly he has his faults—especially in the second half this season—but it’s not all on him. It’s just bad things tend to happen on his team. Cutler’s Law, as it were.

Some men are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Jay Cutler is none of these men.

Gut Reaction: Week 5 - Broncos vs Cardinals

Although the Cardinals have a good defense, they discovered one thing about playing the Denver Broncos.

Play man to man at your own risk.

Peyton Manning threw for the most yards in his career. Demaryius Thomas set a team single-game receiving record. And the Broncos nearly reached 600 yards in total offense.

This is what happens when you try and match talent with the Broncos. You find out what you knew all along.

You’re biting dust.

Final Score: Broncos 41, Cardinals 20 (Updated)

We’d love to focus on Peyton Manning’s 500th career touchdown pass, but we wouldn’t want to do so at the expense of numbers 501, 502, and 503.

Peyton threw four touchdown passes, Demaryius Thomas set a new single-game franchise record for receiving yards, and the Broncos whipped the Cardinals 41-20 (Game Book) at SAF@MH.

Study suggests college players report fewer than 4% of possible concussions

Good Morning, Broncos fans! A couple of notes on coaching jobs from Gary Myers:

Raiders owner Mark Davis seems obsessed with bringing back Jon Gruden to coach in Oakland after he fired Dennis Allen last week. If Davis gives Gruden total control, this might be the job he takes...

Speculation is the University of Michigan wants Ravens coach John Harbaugh if Brady Hoke gets fired. If not John, then Jim, the 49ers coach and former Wolverines quarterback...
