It has most definitely been a rough few weeks for Denver Broncos linebacker Joe Mays. First the NFL stomped him with a $50,000 fine and a one game suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub; then he lost his starting job to Keith Brookings midst reports that plays were not being translated from the coordinator [...]

Early on, it looked the Denver Broncos—especially their defense—were going to have a great game on Sunday.  On Houston’s first offensive play, Texans’ quarterback Matt Schaub was sacked in his own end zone by Broncos’ defensive end Elvis Dumervil, giving the Broncos an early two-point advantage. It was Dumervil’s 53rd and 1/2th sack of his career [...]

My power rankings are fittingly named the ‘Tentative Ten’ because every week it’s subject to change, and erratically at that. 1. New Orleans Saints (2-0) Good teams come back from behind on the road and cause turnovers in the red-zone. The Saints managed both of these things. New Orleans isn’t just trying to repeat what [...]
