LTC - Denver’s déjà vu December - Brian Howell
"So, who should Bronco fans root for? For starters, go with San Diego (as hard as that might be). The Chargers could hand Tennessee a devastating loss Friday. Next, go with New England. The Patriots could knock out Jacksonville this week and Houston the following week (unless Miami takes care of the Texans this week). Broncos fans ought to also root for Indianapolis to get to 15-0; if it does, that means the Jets are done. Finally, the Broncos need Pittsburgh and Miami to each lose a game along the way (they play each other in the season finale). "
DPP - Cornerback Carter surprise of Broncos' rookie class - Lindsay Jones
I've read several times over the past 24 hours from DP writers that Knowshon hasn't had a 100-yard game yet. Why in the world does that matter? They don't mention that he's topped 75 yards eight different times (and 90, twice), despite receiving 20+ carries only four times. His season-high carry total was 23 against the Colts. Like yesterday, I'm not claiming Knowshon is having a spectacular year or that he's been everything I'd hoped. But from what I've read since Sunday, you'd think the guy had 300 yards on the season. Yes, one can argue that Buck has a much higher YPA behind the same line, but he also has half the carries and it's very hard to say he'd hold up with more. You don't hand a guy who's had three major knee injuries the ball 200 times a year.

Chris Baker, Robert Ayers and Alphonso Smith brightened the day for a few young cancer patients. Now Ted, pay close attention to the pictures on this one. You'll see that Pho Smith has some pretty sharp style - hahaha talk about timing...
