...Ball, on his second rep as the Broncos' starting tailback Monday, whiffed on Shaun Phillips, who was rushing in from left end as Peyton Manning dropped back to pass. Lance Ball took the third rep as Montee Ball was called over to running backs coach Eric Studesville for a little chat.

It wasn't the first time Montee Ball whiffed on a block. There was the preseason game at Seattle two weeks ago when Ball missed a blitz pick up and Manning got drilled. Even with Manning at quarterback, a missed blocking assignment isn't quite as devastating as, say, fumbling the ball away in back-to-back games and having both returned for touchdowns.

But closer than fans might think.
