Darrelle Revis is really going to miss Greg Schiano

Last updated: Jan 23, 2014 2:29 PM

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Mitch Unrein (knee) was the only player who would have been held out if the team had practiced on Wednesday, while Knowshon Moreno (ribs) would have been limited.*

Six other players were listed on the fantasy injury report as full participants.

Wideout Percy Harvin would have made a full return to action for Seattle; he'd missed the NFC title game after having suffered a concussion during the divisional round.

DT Brandon Mebane (ankle), RB Marshawn Lynch (knee), and WR Doug Baldwin (hip) would have been held out, but there's little doubt they'll play in the big game.

Richard Sherman

Richard Sherman did quite well on Wednesday in explaining why he finds the word "thug" to be offensive (video).

What did Sherman say to prompt Michael Crabtree to shove his facemask away after the final play on Sunday night? "Hell of a game; hell of a game."

Sherman's now legendary interview with Erin Andrews followed an equally fiery one with Fox Deportes, and a hug with Andrews.

Will Leitch reminds sanctimonious parents everywhere that it's not Sherman's job to raise their children on their behalf.

While conducting a draft is one of the few ways to make the Pro Bowl even dumber than it already was, it's still funny that Captain Checkdown wasn't even selected.

A group of Raiderettes has sued the Raiders over piddling pay; although our first instinct is to make fun of Oakland over this, we're guessing that cheerleaders are treated this shittily everywhere in the NFL.

Maths

Wait, Peyton Manning may actually be better in the postseason than during the regular season? Isn't that unpossible given the narratives?

The Chiefs and Chargers appear to have less than stellar cap situations heading into the 2014 offseason.

The NFCW teams had a historically great season in 2013 relative to interdivision play.
