But because Brandon McManus clanged a gimme off the upright on Sunday, word of today's auditionees (fairly) prompted a Breaking News email from the DP.

McManus is under fire, and deservedly so. He's missed four kicks already, although let's not forget that Denver has lost only one close game this year, and McManus made his lone attempt that day in Seattle.
