Good Morning, Broncos fans! Having arrived with his own theme song, Jeremy Mincey practiced with the team for the first time on Wednesday.
The 6-4, 265-pound end says he chose the Broncos over offers from the Cowboys and Saints, and of course, his familiarity with Jack Del Rio and Terrance Knighton factored.
Mincey admits that playing for a cellar dweller like Jacksonville left him unmotivated, and claims that joining the AFC overdogs will light his fire.
We'll just have to see about that, though, right?
Good Morning, Broncos fans! The picture coming out of Washington continues to get uglier, with the latest story coming at the expense of RG3 (and RG2).
The elder Robert Griffin, true to his reputation as an overbearing parent of an athlete, has reportedly been lobbying owner Dan Snyder to hire Baylor coach Art Briles to replace Shanahan.
In order to create room on the roster for the newly signed DE Jeremy Mincey, Denver waived center J.D. Walton on Tuesday.
Walton started 36 straight games straight out of college, but his career was derailed by a gruesome leg injury suffered in September 2012.
So, I keep bringing up my pet peeve of the Broncos having overpaid Matt Prater and Britton Colquitt. Yes, even though Prater just kicked a 64-yarder (for three points during a game in which Denver scored 51 and won by 23).
Here's the thing about these Broncos paying so much to a kicker and a punter:
They have Peyton MF Manning - the best, and most highly paid player in the league.
Jacksonville had cut Mincey last week over repeated issues of tardiness and violation of team rules.
The 6-4, 265-pounder was drafted by the Patriots in 2006, and played under Jack Del Rio for 4.5 seasons with the Jaguars.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! The AFC playoff picture took another fascinating turn last night, as Justin Tucker booted the Ravens (8-6) to an 18-16 win over the Lions (7-7).
Tucker made six field goals on the night, including a last-minute 61-yard kick that gives Baltimore (and Miami) control over their playoff destiny.
If the Ravens can knock off the Patriots and Bengals, and the Dolphins beat the Bills and Jets, Baltimore would take the AFCN, while Miami would nab the #6 seed.
That would leave Cincy on the outside looking in, and if you'll recall, they had a chance on Sunday night to move into position for the #2 seed.
Andy Benoit breaks down the matchup. Enjoy the game, and Go Lions!
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Things had taken a rough turn in Broncos Land there for a few days.
Following Thursday's loss to San Diego, the #1 seed was seemingly gone forever, with the road to Super Bowl 48 going through Foxboro.
And then Sunday happened, and aside from the Chiefs' throttling of the Raiders, a whole let went Denver's way.
First, the Patriots fell short at Miami, fumbling their golden chance to control the AFC's #1 seed.
Kansas City (11-3) forced seven turnovers in an opportunistic 56-31 mauling of Oakland (4-10), clinching a playoff berth only a year after having gone 2-14.
The win pulls the Chiefs into a tie with Denver atop of the AFCW, but the Broncos' season sweep of the Chiefs means KC would need a better overall record to overtake them for the division title.
It was vintage Captain Checkdown, as Alex Smith threw five touchdown passes and completed 17 of his 20 attempts, with his wideouts totaling just six of those catches.
The Broncos are again in control of the AFC playoff picture, thanks to Miami's (8-6) riveting 24-20 win over the visiting Patriots (10-4).
New England had a chance to move into the AFC's #1 seed with a win, but a late touchdown drive by Ryan Tannehill won the game for Miami.
Tom Brady led his team down the field in the final minute, but ultimately ran out of downs, and Michael Thomas intercepted his fourth-down pass in the end zone.
