When the Broncos traded receiver Brandon Lloyd to the St. Louis Rams, Denver received a conditional sixth round pick that would turn into a fifth round selection if Lloyd caught thirty or more passes with the Rams this season.  Entering last week’s games, Lloyd was four short of thirty.  On Sunday, he caught five.  [BT/NFL.com]

Meanwhile, second year receiver Eric Decker has had no trouble replacing Lloyd as Denver’s best receiver.  [StarTribune]

Mike Klis of the Denver Post wouldn’t be surprised if the Broncos’ December 18th match against the New England Patriots is flexed from 2:15 p.m. (M.T.) to 6:30 p.m. prime-time on NBC.  We wouldn’t be either.  [First-And-Orange]

    Here’s another good read I just found:

    Tebow’s success due to production and protection, not magic

    It sounds a little like magic when you read it.  Nothing is said about the play of the defense keeping the Broncos in the game.  Throwing out a 6% TD percentage sounds great (If you add everything up for this season it comes out to 5% from 220 touches and 11 TD’s).  Combine that with the points per game from the offense and it should be obvious that the offense does a lot of 3 and out.

    The article is manufacturing statistics to make Tebow look good or better.

    Articles don’t manufacture anything.  People do.
