Don’t give up on Brendan Langley just yet

Despite a rough game against the Oakland Raiders, Brendan Langley still has all the tools of a guy who could be great in the NFL. When Aqib Talib and Michael Crabtree were both ejected during the game between the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders, rookie cornerback Brendan Langley was thrust into action and the Raiders exploited it. Langley finished the day with an overall Pro Football Focus grade of 32.9 after being torched in the secondary. He was drafted with the expectation that it would be a few seasons before he would be ready to push for significant playing time, since he had only...

Aqib Talib's two-game suspension reduced to one game by NFL

Aqib Talib’s two-game suspension has been reduced from two games down to one, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib is appealing his two-game suspension for fighting with Oakland Raiders receiver Michael Crabtree in Week 12. Both players were ejected from the game and suspended two games (Crabtree is also appealing his suspension). Talib was suspended for unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness. His appeal may make a case that Crabtree initiated the fight, thus two games could be considered a bit harsh. Talib’s appeal will be heard by James Thrash and a ruling is expected to be made by 4 p.m. MT, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Because the NFL wanted...

WATCH: Michael Crabtree appears to sucker punch Chris Harris

While the Denver Broncos lost their seventh straight game on Sunday, they went down fighting. Literally. The fight in the first quarter of the game was something from a back alley, where Aqib Talib and Michael Crabtree threw literal punches at one another, with Crabtree hitting Talib’s helmet and Talib glancing a blow off Crabtree’s forehead. Some may believe the fight started from Talib breaking Crabtree’s second chain from around the receiver’s neck. But, it may have actually started the play before, when Crabtree threw a sucker punch into Chris Harris’ gut, sidelining him for a...
