Deion Sanders is a mealymouthed POS

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Hey, y'all remember when current NFL employee Deion Sanders accused ex-players suing the league over head injuries of making a dishonest money grab?

Turns out that more than two years prior to his SB 47 pregame show comments, Neon Deion had filed a workers' compensation claim in California over head injuries he claims to have suffered while playing for the Cowboys.

Think about that for a moment.

It's almost impossible to believe, no matter one's opinion of Deion Sanders.

Granted, Deion has always been full of shit.

But this is hypocrisy at its most brazen. Honestly, I don't even think it's worth getting into all of the lurid angles of this story. There are no gray areas here, no subtleties.

GFY, Deion.

If, as Mike Klis suggests, the Broncos are the clear AFC favorite for the Super Bowl, why does it matter how many contenders there are in the NFC? Denver wouldn't have to play all of them to be declared champions, right?

Jeff Legwold says the Broncos need to do more than just trot 11 personnel out there, and this should surprise nobody, considering how long he held onto the idea that they needed a fullback and to employ 21 personnel last year.

Legwold says the Broncos' decision to keep 11 defensive backs on the 53-man roster was about special teams, but let's see what happens when Champ Bailey comes back from injury, and Von returns from suspension.
