Have to say - it's really amusing to listen to Patriot fans bitch about the penalty that cost them the game

The Pats have mostly just skated by up until this game, and got lucky that an Offensive Pass Interference penalty was called on the Jets player who caught a pass in the end zone. On a side note - wouldn't it be nice if we could play them in Denver someday, instead of (seemingly) always having to travel to New England to play them?

According to nfl.com, Adam Weber has gone to the Tamba Bay PS.

That's too bad. Would have liked to see him stay with the Broncos (and replace Hanie)

Top games of last year

NFL.com has just posted its "#6" best game of the year for last year, and it's us versus the Steelers in the playoffs. I could watch the highlights of that game every day, multiple times each day. How it didn't get any higher than #6 is beyond me - I thought it was just about the most exciting play I'd ever seen!

This is probably kinda like throwing a match on a pool of gasoline, but here goes I've been...

This is probably kinda like throwing a match on a pool of gasoline, but here goes I've been thinking about what I would do as a GM to best help my team next year, and rather than a top level DT that I hear a lot of people clamoring for, I think I'd make a different choice. Or I'd at least check to see if it was possible. I'd look into what it would take to move up far enough to get David DeCastro. Current mocks show him going somewhere between 12 and 19, so it would not be a cheap move to get him. Here's my reasoning: - By adding Mike Adams and Tracy Porter to the defensive backfield, and with another year's experience for Quinton Carter, Rahim Moore, and Syd'Quan, we significantly improved in that area over last year - This draft is deep at DT, plus we have Ty Warren coming back along with some others, so yeah, it is still a very weak area, but we found Bunk last year, so maybe we can plug the gap for a while again. Maybe some of the guys could just lug a couple of concrete highway barriers out on the field when we have to play defense. - We have great guys on the ends in Von and Elvis, plus solid players in Ayers and Hunter, and Mays against the run on 1st and 2nd downs - Peyton is, or was and hopefully still is, a great QB, and needs to be protected. Fortunately we have a line which is good in some spots, a little weak at LG, and short on depth, but played pretty well together last year and Peyton makes quick decisions which help an OL look good - DeCastro is a star at OG, and is experienced at calling line signals for coverage. Beadles would make a good backup for him or Kuper, if Kuper has difficulties rehabbing from his injury - Look at the success that New England has had with a great offensive line. Sure, they have Brady, but we now have Peyton. They have Gronk and Hernandez; we now have Tamme and Dreesen to go with the young TEs Thomas and Green I don't know what it would take to accomplish a trade that would get DeCastro, but I'd take him over anyone else right now, given the signings we've had during the FA period. Wouldn't it be great to have a superb OL,under the direction of a great QB, for the next several years? What do you think? Let the flames begin!

Nice article by Eric Winston on being released in Peter King's blog

A different QB possibility - one not named Manning? The Texans released Matt Leinart (I know, I know, but hear me out). Leinart is a left-handed QB with experience, and Gary Kubiak liked him as a backup to Schaub, so could he be a decent backup to TT, assuming that Manning goes elsewhere? What do you guys think?

One Defensive Lineman?

Seems odd to me that the only defensive lineman selected by the Broncos was near the bottom of the 7th round, and he's 50 pounds or so lighter than interior offensive linemen on opposing teams. M...
