Score one for KC, Sharpe out Gonzo in at CBS

The new lineup for CBS' NFL Today pre-game program for the coming season has been unveiled and the show will no longer feature either Dan Marino or Shannon Sharpe.

CBS' crew next year will be James Brown, Tony Gonzalez, Boomer Esiason and Bill Cowher. That's right, a former Chiefs tight end (turned Falcon) displaces a former Broncos tight end (turned Raven). This is the biggest slap in the face to Broncos fans since the game which shal not be named.

As a commentator Sharpe wasn't everybody's cup of tea, popular as he might have been among Denver fans. Also, Sharpe had made life tough for his producers in the past, when accusations of stalking, rape and domestic violence were levied against him. The network looked the other way at the time but these things do tend to catch up to guys eventually.

Gonzolez remains an angel in the eyes of the media.

In rooting on USA hockey in this morning's clash against the Russian squad, Avalanche fans might have had a conflict. Luckily, Seymon Varlamov, Colorado's star goalkeeper, was not in net for the bad guys so everyone was able to root on team USA without concern for the emotional impact Russia's loss might have had on "Varly".

Sergei Bobrovsky, who plays for Columbus, was in goal instead. TJ Oshie of the Blues knocked down four of his six shootout goals in toppling "Bob-Rov" and causing Vladamir Putin to expressionlessly, wordlessly, turn and walk out of his luxury box.

GO USA!

Peyton Manning owes it to Broncos fans to speak

"Peyton Manning's silence in the wake of the worst loss in team history is deafening. Where has the quarterback been?"

"There’s no question that the current Nuggets responded better to George Karl. Andre Miller did, that’s for damn sure. Miller undermined the new coach to the extent that Shaw refuses to play him even though the Nuggets desperately need him."

 

"Wherever he goes the media is going to follow in droves. Sam's performance on the football field is going to be a secondary story for a long time to come. His sexual preference is what is going to draw massive interest from the networks, magazines and newspapers and make things tricky for teams that might otherwise draft him without concern. If Michael Sam's draft stock falls don't blame bigotry, blame the media."

"Atticus will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. In continuing with the “Statriotic” theme established by Pour Kids, Atticus will place an emphasis on locally-sourced produce, meats, craft beers wines and spirits."

Dear Peyton: another open letter to Manning

Yesterday the Denver Post published an open letter to Peyton Manning which has gone viral. It was written Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann whom the paper described as “a journalism professor, blogger, mom, and a Broncos fan” living in Charleston, SC. In it she waxes poetic about the quarterback’s dedication, preparedness and legacy.

Reading it in the wake of Sunday’s Super Bowl had me grinding my teeth. That’s why I decided to offer up an open letter of my own to Peyton.

Rumors abound that Nike has been given the green light to design new Denver Broncos uniforms to be revealed for the 2015 season. There's even a possibility, according the scuttlebutt, that the shoe company might design several different new looks for the Broncos, making them the Oregon Ducks of the NFL.

Most of what's making the viral rounds is probably untrue. The no-fun-league isn't likely to allow Denver to mix and match their look from week to week the way Oregon does. It would not be surprising, though, if the Broncos unveiled a new look.

If that happens I believe that the Broncos should bring back the "D" for Denver on the helmets. Not the old D - a slick new one that integrates the more modern look of Denver's logo. The proposed uni is this photo made the rounds last season and it was a huge hit among fans that spied it.

Give us the D, Broncos. God knows we could use it.

 

"The Reed Marks show will be missed - even though it had barely gotten off the ground. It was often the only show to cover hockey, baseball and college athletics in a given day - particularly during the Broncos' playoff run."
