Football-less Sunday Lard 2-13-11

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Here we are, the first Sunday without football since August - what a bummer, right? Well, the Daily Lard will still be around every morning to satisfy at least a bit of your pigskin hunger, if a bit late today. As always, thanks for being here - we appreciate your support. Of course, TJ, Em, Ted and I have plenty of exciting ideas for the offseason. There's no shortage of things NFL and Broncos to analyze, from the CBA to the draft to the new coaching staff and schemes. But please let us know in the comments if there's anything you'd like specifically to see from us. Have a great Sunday!

AFC West

Among the mental diarrhea/rosterbation that has become of Kiszla's mailbag, he thinks the Broncos should trade back for Marcell Dareus and get a replacement for Ryan Harris.

The release of the co-written autobiography of 23-year-old Tim Tebow has been delayed until late May.

Some judgmental, highfalutin writer who thinks people should have better things to do than tweet 140 characters about what Tebow is up to when they see him in public wrote a 600-word column about people tweeting about somebody else. But sure, they're the ones who need to get a life...

Raiders RB Michael Bush was arrested under suspicion of DUI.


Jerry Gray will be running the Titans' defense.

Kubes hired longtime Broncos linebacker and coach Jim Ryan to be an offensive assistant.

Redskins KR Brandon Banks was stabbed in D.C. last night but wasn't seriously harmed.

According to Jay Feely, one of Panthers owner Jerry Richardson's strategies for the CBA talks is apparently to question Peyton Manning's intelligence.

Browns GM Tom Heckert says Shaun Rogers required a lot of special treatment in Cleveland. No thanks. Sure, he's talented and he's only one person, but is there any surprise that someone who doesn't like to practice has never been part of a team that won more than 7 games? In fact, in Rogers' 10 seasons his teams have won 45 games.

Sticking with the Browns - if you're thinking about Jake Delhomme as a backup for Tebow, he's not getting cut (yet).

Apparently Chicago is a forgiving city, so there's hope for Cutler yet.
