The days of Alex Gibbs maintaining a gag order on the Broncos' offensive line are long in the past, and today let's point out that it's a good thing. Obviously, back then it was kind of funny - especially the kangaroo court rulings - but the main reason it was okay at the time was that the Broncos were winning, and racking up 1,000-yard backs like Raiders fans do felonies. The downside of that code of silence was it made it much harder to get to know our favorite 300+ pounders, even if today we may wish we didn't have to hear quite so much about Stink's chili. Thanks to the wonders of social meda and Twitter, we now have plenty of daily and unvarnished insight into the personalities and non-football activities of the Broncos' big guys. In that light, let's check in on some more recent bickering between Eric Olsen and Zane Beadles:
@EOlsen69 I don't know what's worse. The fact that you played lacrosse or the fact that you still have that picture. #livinginthepast
Olsen: @zanebeadles is jealous that he was never an athlete in his entire life. # Beadles: @EOlsen69 please... We can compare pasts #couldthrowtheballaquartermile
McCarthy: @EOlsen69 @zanebeadles @trobinson78 oh great here go... Linemen arguing over who was more athletic and who has the better abs and body.
Beadles: @KMcCarthy34 @eolsen69 @trobinson78 we all know the answer...
Von Miller headed out to Sin City last week...
White linen in Vegas.. I'm on my Big Chief swag...Had all my clothes sent to cosmopolitan so I dont have to pack! Winning!... Hangover part 3!...Limo service!!! Yes!...Honestly, after being in Cali and Vegas, I'm a big fan of House music.. So much emotion and energy...Made I home frm Vegas, safe and sound, alittle outta shape doe.. Time to work it off
Eric Olsen has his priorities in order, at least as far as the Broncos are concerned:
My job requires me to be 300+ lbs. #areasonwhyimsingle
And he apparently has at least somewhat decent taste as far as television goes. Or, at least not terrible...
Things seem to be much better now that the Jersey Shore crew is out of the country. #lockthedoor
While LenDale White has a different reason to be single...
I don't have a girlfriend!!!! Don't belee in em!!!
Zane Beadles continues to feed the golf addiction...

Wes Woodyard's social commentary on tax season:
#whenbrokepplgetmoney they spend up they tax returns instead of paying off their bills for a couple mths! happens same time every year
Plus, some advice from Wes for women struggling with low self-esteem:
Ladies if you low on self confidence just go to #MiamiMemorialDay you will get hollered at from dusk til dawn
And perhaps WW has been doing some online dating?

But Eddie Royal sees the helpfulness of Facebook:
Thank you Facebook if it wasn't for you I wouldn't remember anybodys birthday
Britt Davis, Tim Tebow and Brandon Lloyd apparently worked out together in FL...

Ryan Harris is putting in some work for the Minnesota Visitors Bureau...

Harris' reaction to Beadles and Lance Ball, who got a good laugh out of it...

More life advice from Woodyard; plus, his exciting evening plans:

Olsen needs to learn to hang onto his receipts...
Trying to return something at Office Depot but lady said I can only get store credit. What am I supposed to do with $100 @ OD?? #7000pens
Plus, more on his own girth:
Just booked a flight. Middle seat, no other option. Sorry in advance to whoever is sitting on either side of me. #sopissed
Woodyard wishes he could stoop to the fans' level:
why do fans get to cruse at the players but we cant say anything? thats not fair at all...@thatdudepatrick you say just because we get paid its okay to curse and call us names but when one player yells back its wrong?...dont get me wrong i feed off the yellin of fans and i love it...some1 just told me to basically shut up and just play!!!!!(that's 5 !) sir yes sir! but thanks for saying i have good genes and working hard
BLloyd appreciates Brian Dawkins' having introduced him on NFLN's Top 100 Players show:
@BrianDawkins thank you for those kind words. So cool!
And another funny elevator exchange for Wesley...
