Is it already the end for RG3 in Washington?

Good Morning, Broncos fans! It's hard to believe it's only been two years since Robert Griffin III was emerging as one of the NFL's brightest young stars.

On Tuesday night, for the second time in as many years, RG3 has been benched, this time in favor of one Colt McCoy (!).

Washington is putting out word that Griffin is still in their long term plans, but it's readily apparent that Jay Gruden & Co. are moving on.

The speculation will, of course, continue for months.

For now, Bill Barnwell runs down the possible landing spots for the former phenom, including Oakland (of course), Buffalo, and St. Louis, Barnwell's top choice for Griffin.

It won't be the only big story of the offseason, but it's sure to be one of them.

Broncos

After working out for Arizona, Kapri Bibbs is coming back to the Broncos' practice squad.

Sam Monson says C.J. Anderson takes the Denver offense to a new level.

Jeff Legwold focuses on Emmanuel Sanders' breakout season.

Cecil Lammey thinks Denver should stick with a run-heavy approach at Arrowhead.

Andrew Mason discusses the Broncos' defensive effort against Miami.

In his latest mailbag, Mike Klis notes that Matt Russell was the point man for signing Anderson as an undrafted rookie last year.

It seems like all Patrick Saunders ever does anymore is compare current Broncos teams to those from the SB 32/33 years.

Demaryius Thomas was mic'd up last Sunday; T.J. Ward did a Q&A with the official site.

Chiefs

Ron Parker, who slid over from corner and filled in for Eric Berry when the latter was out with a high ankle sprain, figures to do so again for the rest of the season.

Newly signed wideout Jason Avant hilariously likens himself to Tim Duncan as relates to a grasp of fundamentals.

But as Adam Teicher notes, any production out of Avant will make him appear Duncan-like relative to the Chiefs' current wideouts. But he'll have to talk to Captain Checkdown about that.

Andy Benoit isn't sure how DC Bob Sutton will approach Sunday's showdown with Peyton & Co.

Naturally, Chiefs fans were apoplectic after their team lost to the previously winless Raiders last week.

News

Tennessee cut LB Shaun Phillips, who would be a name to remember if the Broncos should lose a defensive end to injury.

The LOLJets are going back to Geno Smith at QB, in a decision that reportedly came from above Rex Ryan's head.

New England extended wideout Matthew Slater; Arizona added RB Michael Bush.

Richard Sherman held an epic presser in response to Marshawn Lynch's absurd $100K fine; Michael Clair revisits Sherman's greatest hits.

Analysis

With the NFCS leaders sporting 4-7 records, Jason Lisk says it's again time to consider stripping the automatic home playoff game for division winners.

Barnwell discusses each team's biggest remaining game; Matt Bowen studies the otherworldly skills of Odell Beckham, Jr.; Bucky Brooks says the Packers are looking Super.

KSK meme-ifies Week 12.

Maths

Denver remains #1 according to AFA and FO, but they're #4 according to SRS and are #3 in the AP poll.

Chase Stuart explains how Total QBR more accurately measures the mediocrity of Alex Smith and Kyle Orton than QB Rating does, and he goes over Week 12 Game Scripts.

Obviously, the playoff implications of Sunday's game are much more significant for the Chiefs than for the Broncos.

Brian Burke and Will Leitch predict a narrow Denver win at KC.

The least costly field position for a turnover is probably not where most people think it is.
