DPP - Hurting Broncos wait to see which RBs can play - Jeff Legwold
"Correll Buckhalter left last weekend's loss at Indianapolis with an ankle injury and is not expected to play against the Raiders. LaMont Jordan has missed practice time in recent weeks with a back injury, and a battered Knowshon Moreno was moving rather gingerly after the Colts game."
DPP - Broncos' defense started too slowly vs. Colts, Peyton Manning - Jeff Legwold
"Russell, who was benched four weeks ago, was sacked six times, fumbled and threw an interception in a half of work against the Redskins on Sunday."

"In the past three games, the Broncos have outscored their opponents 49-20 after halftime."
DPP - Analysis: Broncos on right path to succeed - Jeff Legwold
"It's a lot to ask for the Broncos to go from living life in the league's mediocre club, as they had done in 2006, 2007 and 2008, to cleaning house, to suddenly arriving as championship contender months later."
NYT - Doctor Who Treated Top Athletes Is Subject of Doping Inquiry
By now, you've probably heard about this guy due to his ties to Tiger. It's only mentioned briefly here, but Chris Simms (and Javon Walker) have both been treated by Dr. Galea. Folks, take a look at this guy's pictures and try to guess how old he is; the guy takes HGH. Once you find out his true age, you'll probably be a bit creeped out (as I was).

NFP - Tavern talk: Smart decision by McDaniels - Mike Lombardi
"Most of the comments were, "Has he lost his mind? Why would he give the Colts a lead in the game?" My thought: It was brilliant and very perceptive, which is why McDaniels will win a Super Bowl in Denver."

SI - Michael Oher to Lions, Percy Harvin to Chiefs - Don Banks
Banks works his 2009 Draft do-over, in which he's got Denver still taking Knowshon; at 18 he's got them selecting Louis Delmas over Robert Ayers. Judging by what he's written lately about the Broncos, I'm guessing Banks thinks Ayers is a bust because he lacks statistics...
