San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates named AFC Player of the Week

For his fantastic performance in the San Diego Chargers home-opener, Antonio Gates has been named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week. This isn't a surprise, but San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his Week 2 performance against the Seattle Seahawks. In the 30-21 Chargers upset victory, Gates had seven catches for 96 yards and caught all three of the team's touchdowns.

Welcome back , Wes!

Oh, yes, very welcome back, Mr Welker. He should be back at 8:00 am today. We did miss him in our lineup and he has kept in shape. And it may be a blessing with his extra tone to recover from the concussion he suffered in the opening game with Indy. His return will return […]

Report: Broncos will get Wes Welker back for Seahawks

Wes Welker's suspension is finally... ah, you know the drill. Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker is soon expected to be reinstated. And that's only the fourth time I've written that sentence. After premature reports and false alarms, the NFL and NFLPA have agreed on the revised drug policy that will reinstate the like of Denver's Welker, Dallas' Orlando Scandrick, and as many as 18 others, according to multiple reports, citing multiple league sources. Among those being informed tonight of their reinstatement: Broncos WR Wes Welker, Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick, Rams WR Stedman...

Phil Simms deconstructed: Why Broncos fans want him banned

Phil Simms deconstructed: Why Broncos fans want him banned

Do Denver Broncos fans have merit in petitioning to ban Phil Simms from Broncos broadcasts? Let's break down some of Phill Simms' questionable commentary from Denver's 24-17 win over the Chiefs, in chronological order. 2nd quarter - 2:43 - Incomplete pass to Emmanuel Sanders The most egregious comment from CBS color commentator Phil Simms Sunday came near the end of the first half. Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders just missed a diving catch, but upon replay, Jim Nantz and Simms noted that the ruling wasn't as simple as they first thought. Perhaps it was a catch and then a...

Raiders week two Ballers & Busters

We are only in week two of the 2014 season and the Raiders already look like they're in ‘maybe next year' mode. They are 0-2 with losses to the Jets and the Texans and looked worse this week than they did in the opener. This time losing by a final score of 30-14. But the score was not indicative of how lopsided this one was. It's times like these when detailing individual performances can offer some solace that it wasn't all bad. It can also help to make some sense to why things went as poorly as they did in a game that was 27-0 heading into the fourth quarter and a Raiders team that gave...

San Diego Chargers Snap Counts: Week 2 vs Seattle Seahawks

A weekly feature looking at the distribution of playing time for the San Diego Chargers players on offense and defense. This week, we see who contributed to the enormous upset of the Seattle Seahawks. Week 2 of the regular season may end up being the highlight of the regular season, and that's even if the team has a strong year. The San Diego Chargers dominated on offense and defense in a way that no sane person thought they could against the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks. First, we'll start by looking at the playing time breakdown on offense: Pos. Name W2 Snaps ...

What 0-2 means for Kansas City Chiefs NFL playoff chances

What 0-2 means for Kansas City Chiefs NFL playoff chances

0-2 means a 12 percent shot at the playoffs for the Chiefs. Just how big of an upset would it be if the Kansas City Chiefs somehow climbed out of their 0-2 hole and made the playoffs? Since 1990, only 23 of 198 NFL teams that started the season 0-2 qualified for the playoffs. That's about 12 percent. Since 2007, four of 59 teams who started 0-2 made the playoffs. One of those playoff teams came last season in the Carolina Panthers. The 2007 Giants are the team the Chiefs should be striving to become -- they started 0-2 and won the Super Bowl. If the Chiefs started out 0-3 that number...

Is it time for Chris Watt? Can the San Diego Chargers Offense survive without Ryan Mathews?

Kyle Posey provides some of his musing on the San Diego Chargers offense. Is it time for Chris Watt to replace Johnnie Troutman? Can the offense still produce without Ryan Mathews? What Philip Rivers did Sunday versus the Seahawks was incredible. Yes, his numbers were very good. From a football standpoint, his ability to maneuver in the pocket and avoid the rush while simultaneously keeping his eyes downfield was fantastic. He put on a clinic in that regard. Considering he’s "only" been hit 5 times in 2 weeks tells you all you need to know about Rivers’ pocket presence. It’s still not...

Manning Up: Week Two Peyton touchdown breakdown

Peyton Manning threw yet another three touchdown passes on Sunday, inching his way closer to the all-time passing touchdown record, as well as moving him closer in his pursuit of his own single-season record from 2013. Here is a breakdown of each of those touchdowns from the Kansas City match-up. Recap of Last Week: Entering last week, Week One of the NFL season, Manning had 491 career touchdown passes, sitting 17 behind Brett Favre for the all-time record (508). Needing 17 touchdowns to tie the record and 18 to break it, Peyton threw three touchdowns to Broncos tight end, Julius Thomas,...

Broncos vs. Chiefs - Play of the Game

Hello Broncos Country, vote for the play of the game! Last Week's Winner - Roby saves the day Out of position, beaten, but not beat, Bradley Roby shows off his athletic ability by recovering into great position and batting down a 4th down pass to Reggie Wayne. This play received 308 votes (58%) Thanks to everyone who voted, now on to this week!!! Julius Thomas "Touchdown Machine" Eric Berry has never been able to cover Julius Thomas. In this case, it's just not fair. Manning uses JT's big frame and lays the ball in a spot high and to the outside. No one throws the fade better than...

Odds are against Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3 vs. Miami Dolphins

The Kansas City Chiefs are underdogs in Miami. The line on the Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins Week 3 game opened at 3.5 in favor of the Dolphins and has since moved up to 4.5. This means the KC Chiefs enter their second consecutive game as underdogs. The Dolphins easily took care of business in Week 1 against New England by putting up nearly 200 yards on the ground against the Patriots. They followed that up with a Week 1 Chiefs-esque performance against the Bills in a 29-10 loss. The Chiefs, as you know, sit at 0-2. The Week 1 Chiefs will get blown out by the Dolphins. The Week 2...

Broncos players emphasize the win, improvements, not the mistakes

A win is a win is a win is a win. The Denver Broncos come away with a 'W' against the Kansas City Chiefs despite their best efforts to beat themselves with penalties and missed opportunities, but players keep pledging that these mistakes and miscues are temporary. Sunday's 24-17 win over the Chiefs was anything but satisfying, but if you didn't watch the game and only listened to players' comments, you might have a different impression. The mood out of the Mile High locker room seemed slightly defensive as Broncos admitted the win wasn't dominating, but it was still a ‘W' and had some...

Week 2 Grades: Chargers vs. Seahawks

Week 2 Grades: Chargers vs. Seahawks

That's the Chargers team we all hoped to see this season. When they play their game well, there's not a team in the NFL they can't beat. At it turns out, that includes the defending Super Bowl champions. Quarterback: A Philip Rivers was virtually flawless on Sunday afternoon. Seattle's defensive design is to force teams to play near–perfect football to maintain possession, and Rivers' solid number of 7.68 yards per attempt is a testament to his consistently taking what the defense gave him, and not trying to force the ball downfield and create plays which weren't there. He completed 28...

Broncos fans start petition to ban CBS' Phil Simms: Everything we know

It's come to this for Broncos fans. You can sign the Change.org petition here, if you would like. Denver Broncos fans have dealt with the perceived bias of CBS analyst Phil Simms for years. I've always tolerated it - fans often claim an analyst or ref is biased, and being an objective color commentator is difficult when you're rooting for close games. But now that Denver has Peyton Manning, and the Broncos are ratings juggernauts, CBS has decided to make them their afternoon game featuring their #1 crew of Jim Nantz and Simms virtually every week. It's all Simms, all the time. And...

3rd and Long - Another Scary Performance by our D

We had our worst 3rd down D performance since the horrible 08 Broncos D. We allowed KC to convert 7 or 9 on 3rd and long. We lost the time of possession by 13 minutes, and we still won. Remember, if you will, the first game of the season in 2012. We were playing a Steelers team coming off of a good season (12-4). In that game, our defense allowed Rapelisberger to convert on 7 of 9 3rd and longs and 11 of 19 3rd downs overall. Keep that in mind while you look at how atrocious our 3rd down D was on Sunday. The official gamebook shows that the Chiefs were able to convert 11 of 16 3rd downs,...
