I hope not. The Steelers are constantly up against the cap and close to or in cap hell far too frequently.
I like that they keep their players but they also rarely dip heavily into FA.

I would rather the Broncos have their own approach and have teams compared to us.

I meant in regards to letting a promising or even good player go elsewhere when he is due a big payday trusting their own drafting efficiency to replace that player without a ton of drop off. The Steelers had done that for years although not so much recent years.

True, they were very good at that but it did eventually come back to bite them after they started missing in the draft.

I am really warming to Knighton, he is one of the best free agent signings of the current front office and seems like a character.

Agreed if we are going to be like another franchise in terms of the cap usage I'd rather us be more like New England but without the pretentiousness and dickish attitude and behavior

“That’s Denver Broncos offensive business," Manning said, according to USA Today's Lindsay Jones.

No, really.

“Like I said, that’s official Denver Broncos offensive business, right? It’s kind of an A and B conversation and you can C your way out of it,” Manning said.

Huh. Must be a super-secret mission. Demaryius Thomas was also carrying one of the balls, covered by green Lycra, around in practice.

It turns out, it's to reduce fumbles. The Broncos lost 16 fumbles last season, most in the NFL. They had this happen too, on the first play of the Super Bowl (although it's not clear if a green football can help reduce crowd noise):


The stretchy Lycra fabric is surely more slippery than the textured leather on a NFL football, making it harder to hold on to it. Having the green cover is just a twist in the tried-and-true method of having a player carry the ball around everywhere to enforce ball security. No word on if defensive players tried to knock it out as Manning and Thomas headed to math class after lunch.

"We're making an emphasis from Day One on ball security," Broncos coach John Fox told the Denver Post. "We started with two of our better players in Demaryius and Peyton. What better guys to start with?

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...153045859.html
Peyton added 6 fumbles to the total. The most he had was 3 with the Colts.

Imagine how even better this offense could be if they stopped fumbling the ball.

Huh? Mannings in the shotgun most the time. His fumbles weren't from center to QB exchange.

We'll see how Chuck n' Duck Peyton does against the good Defenses this season. Historically, he hasn't done well. They know how to neutralize Peyton, a little pressure, get him out of his comfort and timing zone, Peyton will cave in, make mistake after mistake.

Once Peyton caves, he doesn't recover, he doesn't have the backbone. He's been a crybaby all of his life and that's not gonna change. He's saying the right things about preparation, but he doesn't have the guts to make it happen on the field.

Lycra my ass. Fox and Peyton, what a pair of losers when the going gets the toughest. I wish the team the best of luck, but those two are some weaklings when the going gets the toughest.

Winning the Super Bowl could very well throw Cito into a depression he will never recover from. He still hasn't forgiven Shanahan for bringing two Lombardis to Denver.

Wonder if Sanders wishes he had signed with KC he would have played a lot more there
?
But he would have caught 35 passes in a starting role and he once again would have missed the playoffs. He made the right choice.

Correct I can think of 3 blindside fumbles that Clark gave up last year. Clady will be a huge improvement.

I just hope Clark can hold down the RT position. Overall I think the line will be improved but Clark at RT has me a little worried

Clark played very well last year. RT is much easier to play than LT so I think he will be great. If Franklin can play G than this line will be immensely improved.
