Sometimes a brutal loss leaves you in disgust of your team (see Oakland Raiders, 2010). Sometimes a brutal loss leaves you in awe of your opponent. This one was a bit more of the latter. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers put a number on the Denver Broncos Sunday. An early 3-0 lead by [...]

Two words can be used to describe Denver Broncos defensive end Jason Hunter: play maker.

After running a relatively slow [...]

If anyone read my introductory article, you will notice that I disclosed the fact that I have dual loyalties when it comes to NFL fandom: the Denver Broncos as well as the Green Bay Packers.
As you likely know (and if you don’t, you live under a rock), the Green Bay Packers recently won Super Bowl XLV over the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 31-25. The Denver Broncos, meanwhile, finished 4-12 and hold the number two overall pick in the NFL Draft this coming April.
Since one of my teams is currently at the top of the NFL and the other is dangerously close to the cellar, I figured that now would be a good time to ask:
What can the Denver Broncos learn from the Green Bay Packers?

Just exactly how many sacks will Sam Bradford endure this Sunday? The rookie has looked like the real deal, but will it transition to the regular season?

This week the Tentative Ten will only feature the top ten eleven rankings. In another post all of weekly awards will be featured. 1.
