Good Morning, MHR Friends! Let's just get something out of the way here before we get to the news. Deltha O'Neal (twice) and Tory James (once) were Pro Bowl cornerbacks. Now, that doesn't mean I'm not happy for the Broncos who made it. But all this talk of who got snubbed and who really deserved to go? Who cares? They never get it right - just like every other pro
popularity contest all-star game doesn't get it right.

"The Broncos worked out punter A.J. Trapasso, a rookie who was released from the Titans' practice squad in November. Trapasso was the player who punted a ball into the mammoth video screen at Cowboys Stadium in the preseason."
Wow. Prior to McNabb's run on 3rd-and-25, the Broncos had not allowed any third-down conversions for more than 10 yards all season. That's pretty impressive.
