Yes, that happened yesterday, Cassius Vaughn straight up for the Indianapolis Colts' Chris Gronkowski. The one thing I WILL say is we did need a blocking back to take Spencer Larson's place , remember that Spencer Larsen signed a free agent contract with the New England Peatriots so we needed someone to fill that gap. Chris Gronkowski doesn't have a lot of stats to beef up his resume, let's hope he performs like his brother Rob!

Today was the final payment due date for the Broncos and paying it got me excited about the next season. Only 3 more months and its a night game my favorite games to attend. Should be a fun 2011 - 2012 season.

(Mod edit-paragraph deleted) Will send a direct message later tonight regarding an explanation.
Do you Bronco fans feel you made a forward, sideways or backwards step in signing Manning? an old qb with a serious neck injury one bad hit and who's your qb hannie? Have a good season guys...<<You're pushing the envelope here!

Well! Where to start here!?

First off, let's talk the betting line. The most recent figures out by VegasInsider.com has the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots at 7-1 odds this year to reach the big dance, with Green Bay over them at 6-1. Below them the next several teams are:

San Francisco 49ers--- 9-1
New Orleans Saints--- 10-1
Baltimore Ravens------10-1
Pittsburgh Steelers----15-1

DIVISION FOES
San Diego Chargers----30-1
Kansas City Chiefs-----40-1
Oakland Raiders------- 40-1

Um, I would say forward regarding the acquisition of the old qb as you refer to him.

"Who's your qb hannie?"

That would be Caleb Hanie, formerly of the Chicago Bears. Every club needs a clipboard carrier because that's what he'll do with Denver this year and I mean that realistically.

The backup quarterback this year, barring any future quarterback signings, looks to be Brock Osweiler out of Arizona State. The Broncos drafted him in the 2nd round with the 57th pick. And Elway really likes this guy and there's a big reason for it.

Big. As in 6'7" 242 pound big. To be sure he is a project. Like a lot of college quarterbacks, he can be inconsistent. He can also put up big numbers, as a junior he passed for 4035 yards and 25 touchdowns.

Anyone know if Matt Prater got his new deal?? I think he was seeking $3MIL/year.

We lost a really good running back and team leader but Manning will lead the team.

Manning will not get hurt because he's too fast. His neck will be fine and his arm will be ready to go.

What are the Bears odds for getting to the Super Bowl btw? How many playoff games did they win this last season? How many games did your team's division leader win in the playoffs compared to Tebow and the Denver Broncos' one win against the Pittsburgh Steelers? How did the Bears fare on the SCOREBOARD against Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos last season? So many questions. This is fun.

Good luck to yourself.

Let's do this again sometime.

With Peyton Manning aboard, Broncos receivers actually have to learn routes now | Shutdown Corner - Yahoo! Sports

They never ran routes before??? Maybe thats why Tebow looked bad...?
