When will Von and Demaryius get paid?

Good Morning, Broncos fans! On Friday night, Pat Bowlen & Co. introduced Ring of Fame Plaza (video), an area outside SAF@MH that honors the Broncos' greatest legends.

Many of the ROF players were in attendance for the ceremony and had the pleasure of unveiling their individual pillars, which feature bronze likenesses of their faces and plaques detailing their NFL feats.

Each pillar is made of corten steel, the material out of which Mile High Stadium had been constructed, and which helped make it such a loud venue.

The ROF will welcome a new member tomorrow, as two-time SB champion center Tom Nalen will be inducted at halftime.

Greg Cosell breaks down two brilliant adjustments made by Peyton Manning against the Raiders - one a quick progression with his primary reads covered, and the other a pre-snap audible.

Joan Niesen discusses Wesley Woodyard's rise from undrafted rookie to leader and defensive stalwart.

Mike Florio believes that despite his suspension, Von Miller may still get a big contract after this season, while Joel Corry suggests that Demaryius Thomas's contract leverage could increase if Eric Decker departs via free agency next year.

Jeff Legwold thinks Denver will need continued great play from its defensive tackles to win tomorrow.

Eagles

Fifth-round rookie safety Earl Wolff is likely to make his first NFL start tomorrow in place of the injured Patrick Chung, and he understands that Peyton Manning will likely be gunning for him.

Philly DE Vinny Curry was inactive for the team's first two games, but he will suit up tomorrow.

J.J. Cooper says RT Lane Johnson was the primary culprit behind the Eagles allowing Michael Vick to be sacked six times last week against the Chiefs.

Mike Klis comes up with some reasons why the Eagles might win, but none are as sensible as his last one, which posits that shit happens.

News

The NFLPA is still looking into the Raiders' handling of QB Terrelle Pryor after he was concussed on Monday.

St. Louis placed safety T.J. McDonald on short-term IR.

Shayanna Jenkins, the fiancee of Aaron Hernandez, has been indicted on a perjury charge related to the murder of Odin Lloyd.

Analysis

We've seen it in Denver with both Mike Shanahan and John Fox (and probably every other coach), but when it comes down to it, it's probably dumb to bench a guy because he fumbled.

Jason La Canfora and Pete Prisco preview the week's games; La Canfora thinks Montee Ball could have a big day, and he notes that Philly's opponents have outpossessed them by a 98-to-52 advantage over the past 10 quarters.

With Napoleon Dynamite lookalike Mike Glennon taking over for Josh Freeman, the ACC can now claim the most starting quarterbacks of any NCAA conference.

Old friend Trevor Pryce and B-Sun columnist Mike Preston unload on Ray Lewis for his ridiculous claim that his absence was to blame for Jacoby Jones's run-in with Sweet Pea.

The Ultimate Teammate™

The Zombies in Jacksonville have apparently hired a plane to fly over the Jags/Colts game with their all-important message.

Apparently, their strongest argument for the Jags signing Teebs is that "the Denver year happened."

Of his own piety, Nats OF Bryce Harper says, "I'm not going to be Mr. Tim Tebow."

Mo Rivera

The always excellent Rob Neyer (if you're a baseball fan and don't already, do yourself a favor and start following SBN's Baseball Nation) explains why Mariano Rivera should be allowed to play center field before he hangs them up. It's an excellent reminder that rules/restrictions/traditions in sports are often dumb, and that what really matters is that athletes have fun, and fans are entertained.

As a lifelong Yankees hater, part of me doesn't believe I'm posting this, but it was a truly great sports moment...

...then again, I'm sure that part of why I'm willing to do so is my glee at the Yanks and their $230M payroll having missed the playoffs (LOL).
