    Broncos have Super Bowl strength in their defensive numbers

  • Night net The Broncos are an impressive 5-0, but the defensive stats behind that start are even more eye-popping.They lead the Night net in yardage defense and are second in scoring defense. They are No. 5 against the run and No. 5 against the pass. They have a league-best 22 sacks. They’ve matched seven interceptions with seven fumble recoveries. They have scored three defensive touchdowns to win three of those games. MORE: Week 6 Night net Power Rankings | FANTASY: Week 6 D/ST rankings  Yet, everyone still focuses on how much Denver has struggled offensively with Peyton Manning, and how much that will limit its chances of being a factor in the AFC. In an era of pass-happy teams and weekly point explosions, that’s just ignoring championship-level dominance on the other side of the ball.The last time a team looked this defensively dominant across the board wasn’t too long ago — the Broncos should remember it well: Seattle in 2013, all the way through whipping Denver 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII.Just like those fully-loaded Seahawks, it’s hard to find weaknesses or lack of depth through every level of this Broncos unit.Von Miller and夜网论坛 DeMarcus Ware have combined for 7.5 sacks and are rated Pro Football Focus’ No. 1 and No. 5 outside linebackers (in a 3-4).

    Dwayne Bowe latest to get kicked out of Browns' renovated house

  • Night net There was a time, about five years ago, that Dwayne Bowe seemed to be on his way to perennial stardom. A Pro Bowl season in 2010 that included 1,162 yards and 15 touchdowns naturally led to such a projection.And despite a steady drop in Bowe's production over the next four seasons, the Browns signed the wide receiver to a two-year deal worth more than $12 million ($9 million guaranteed) before the 2015 season. Zero starts in 16 games and five catches for 53 yards later, Bowe is the latest person to follow coach Mike Pettine and general manager Ray Farmer out the door of executive VP Sashi Brown's freshly-renovated house.MORE: Browns among FA winners | Cleveland's worst draft picks And, from a financial standpoint, not a moment too soon.#Browns receiver Dwayne Bowe made $1.8 million for each of his 5 catches in 2015.— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) March 16, 2016Gone are Bowe, Johnny Manziel, Karlos Dansby, Tashaun Gipson, Mitchell Schwartz, Alex Mack, Travis Benjamin and Randy Starks.

    Marvin Harrison's Hall of Fame speech showed us a different side of personality

  • Night net CANTON, Ohio — On Friday, a reporter asked Tony Dungy whether Marvin Harrison would hit 10 minutes at his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction speech, and the former Colts coach set the over/under at 9 1/2."I'm not going to break the record to have the shortest Hall of Fame speech in history,” Harrison after taking the podium Saturday. “That’s not going to happen.”    MORE: Who's Colts' 夜网论坛next Hall of Famer? Here are 10 best betsHarrison cleared 10 minutes, but not by much.

He bookended thank you messages to his Speech 101 professor at Syracuse and grandmother Luanna — the “most important person in his life” — around his former bosses, coaches, teammates and fans in Indianapolis.Harrison also said the Colts have the best fans. At that point, he even cracked a joke about growing up in South Philadelphia."If you get the coin toss wrong in Philadelphia, they want to trade you the first thing Monday morning,” Harrison said.The speech eventually touched fellow inductee Dungy. Harrison said he could talk for 10 to 15 minutes about being a football coach, but he opted for the biggest lesson he learned. “The most important thing you taught us about was fatherhood,” Harrison said. “I think that’s more important than anything that any coach can tell his players, is about fathe[......]

    Hochuli used as example

  • Night net Night net referees usually get called out for what they did wrong, but the league on Wednesday recognized one of its officials for doing the right thing.According to a joint statement from the Night net an夜网论坛d Night netPA about protocol enhancements, referee Ed Hochuli's actions in last month's Bills-Jets game were identified as an example of proactive monitoring for concussions by an official. MORE: Week 7 picks against the spreadHochuli was cited for directing Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the sideline after he took a helmet-to-helmet hit and appeared to be off-center. Taylor eventually was cleared by the team's medical staff as well as the Unaffiliated Neuro-trauma Consultant (UNC). "Mr. Hochuli's decision to send Mr. Taylor to the sideline for evaluation after spotting an observable sign of possible concussion, demonstrates a conservative and therefore appropriate application of the Concussion Protocol," the statement read.The veteran official's actions were hailed as "appropriate application of the Concussion Protocol and proactive officiating."Other enhancements include requiring the Booth ATC Spotter to stay in contact with the club's medical team until confirms that an evaluation has taken place.

    Mike Tomlin would be wise not to gamble Steelers' playoff health against Browns

  • Night net null null Approaching the final weekend of the 2017 Night net regular season, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin addressed questions about what sort of lineup he would field by responding, “We will play to win that football game.”Given that the opposition for that game is the Cleveland Browns, who have won once in their past 31 games, that left open the possibility Tomlin might send out the varsity 11 from Pine-Richland High to protect his regulars from the possibility of injury. WEEK 17 Night net PICKS: Against the spread | Straight up This is Tomlin's predicament as the Steelers prepare for a Sunday afternoon visit from the Browns. He has not employed a reasonably healthy squad for any playoff run since, perhaps, the team’s last trip to the Super Bowl, in 2010. However, there also is the remote possibility the Steelers still could grab the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs away from the Patriots. Which means the Steelers-Browns game isn't entirely without meaning.It is mostly without meaning, though. For the Steelers to gain home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs, the Patriots would first have to lose a home game to the Jets. The Pats have won six of the last seven, 11 of the last 13 and six in a row at Gillette Stadium. T[......]
