The NFL power rankings after Week 11 didn't change too much on top. The Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens all won while the Pittsburgh Steelers and New Orleans Saints benefited from not playing.

Peyton or not, Colts need some Luck | National Football Post
What a strange focus we have had this year in the NFL.  Barely a few games into the season, there was less attention paid to the best team – the Packers – than given to the the team that could end up as the worst. The reason, of course, is that the discussion revolves around a player thought to be a once-in-a-generation player: Andrew Luck.

Denver Broncos Fans

Coaches Corner: The Business of being John Elway. - Mile High Report
Been following all the "outrage" on Twitter world regarding Elway's comments on Tim Tebow today. To be honest, I did not take them as much....and I will explain this in my post.

The Denver Tebows - Mile High Report
Yep, it sure seems that way these days.  Almost everything written on MHR is Tebow related.  Even ESPN and NFLN have moved on realizing that there is a story about our defense to be discussed.  Sure, sure, they still talk plenty about Tebow and they will continue to until it no longer gets reaction. 

Scouting for the Broncos Week 11 - Mile High Report
Denver has won way too many games to be picking in the top 5 and likely will win enough to finish in the 7-9 to 9-7 area.  That would put them smack dab in the middle of the draft where they currently would be drafting if the season ended today.  Being that this is almost a bye week and only 6 weeks remaining it would be fun to reassess the Broncos roster needs since inserting Tim Tebow.

Orange and Blue Thanksgiving - Mile High Report
Hello Broncos fans!  I don’t come around as often as I used to, but I miss the MHR community.  We fans have had a wild and crazy ride the past few years with changes to most of the roster, the coaching staff, quarterbacks, management, draft strategy, field name, uniforms, and the list can go on.   In fact, I think the only thing that hasn’t changed is the orange and blue blood still coursing through all our veins!
