NYT - Former Players Face Obstacles When Filing Dementia Claims With N.F.L. - Alan Schwarz

GQ - Game Brain - Jeanne Marie Laskas
An eye-opening look at chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), the brain disease thought responsible for the early deaths of several former NFL players and being researched around the country by many independent scientists. Unfortunately, the NFL has only ignored the current research and tried to marginalize it. Many thanks to MHR member diviesti for the link.

DB - Week 4 - Wed: McDaniels - Broncos TV

DB - 'Something Will Have to Give' - Gray Caldwell
Ben Hamilton, Ryan Harris, Peyton Hillis, Spencer Larsen and Alphonso Smith did not practice yesterday. Brandon Stokley was limited in practice.

DP - Broncos hurting in offensive line - Jeff Legwold

DPP - Moreno, Buckhalter providing dynamic inside, outside punch - Mike Klis
Eddie Royal pulled up in practice with what looked to Klis as a groin pull.

DPP - Strong bond of Broncos DBs Goodman, Hill good for team - Lindsay Jones
Renaldo and Andre' have now started 33 games next to each other with the Dolphins and Broncos. They dine and study film together during the week. While I doubt McD knew how close these guys were, he must have been aware of how well they played together...

SI - Mark Sanchez, Rex Ryan, Josh McDaniels enjoying early momentum - Ross Tucker

ESPN - It's still too early to call the Denver Broncos a legitimate contender - John Clayton
Funny. Clayton says the Broncos "might reach six or seven wins" but only if they beat the Cowboys or Patriots. Even still, he doesn't really cop to being wrong; now it's a question of whether the Broncos are actual contenders...

Y! - Players haven't given up on Mangini … yet - Charles Robinson
Robinson says the Broncos are overrated and "can hear the furious click of fingertips on computer keys as Broncos fans prepare to fire off an explicit salvo of emails." He's raising the bar, saying that unless the Broncos win 2 of their next 3, they're not a playoff team. When writing about Jay Cutler, Robinson admits to not having watched much Broncos film in the last few years. I wonder if he's watched any this year...

Arkush isn't ready to give McD any credit.
