    I thought it was pretty clear he did it accidentally on purpose. Really dumb.

    Colts exposed Denver's weak offensive line and their poor defense. Also, Hillman is a fumble machine.

    Broncos will make their supporters happy next Sunday when they feast on Washington's awful defense. But the team is fundamentally flawed and it's not going far in the playoffs.

    I think it looked incidental to the point he chest bumped Luck and that kinda threw away any chance he had of looking accidental. The whole punting debacle really worked good for the colts because they didn't really give away any field position but also to 30 some seconds off the clock before Manning stepped on the field.
    The colts are a team that can beat you with their talent and plays but also are not gonna make stupid penalties and mistakes that basically kinda cost the broncos a chance at winning.

    It looked to me like he chest bumped him to knock him down without a penalty. Didn't work, though.

    Yep, he did it intentionally. I hope Fox punishes the shit out of him.

    Vickerson was the biggest thug and dirty player I have seen since Haynesworth. What he did to Satale was complete bullshit. That is kind of stuff Colts fans have come to expect from a Del Rio defense but I thought the Broncos would have snuffed that out to preserve their 'white hat' image.

    Due to being pretty busy my casual fandom has slipped down a notch this year. Have to say the Colts game was the first time I was really aware of Vickerson-- yeah I'd noticed him but not noticed him.

    And yes, it wasn't in a good way. He played like a dirtbag in the Colts game then gets all snippy about being called on it. Not my kind of player.

    Vickerson Pouts
    Sounds a lot like Suh. That isn't a good thing. :nono

    I hope he's doing Ok. Knowing the mindset of a NFL coach he'll probably be back right away.

    Should he is another question, for his own health.

    I think its more a physical deal, obviously stress won't help but I could see him coaching from upstairs in 4-5 weeks after surgery.

    I'm a Broncos fan but hadn't read what happened beyond him going to the ER for "dizziness" and it not being an MI-- until now.

    Hoping for the very best Coach. :thumb

    Hey, when he loses in the first round of the playoffs again, you guys will be selling him for a half used container of McDonald's sweet and sour sauce.

    But I hope he takes good care of himself too.

    If the Broncos lose in the first round of the playoffs I'll blame the guy who was driving drunk en route to find a fax machine to send in Elvis' contract.

    Sorry to hear about Fox. I hope he does well with the surgery. It is pretty major stuff. My mother had the same thing done and died as a result of the surgery. She was 87, though.

    The coaching situation should be okay for them, Del Rio obviously has some experience and Manning could run the offense without a coach. It was suggested here on sports radio today that Manning be appointed interim head coach.

    Dumervil's since-fired agent. I agree, that one fiasco will ruin their season.

    I would like to point out that the Broncos suck so much, you can't even get someone to sit on your bench for a million dollars.
