Broncos even brought the injured guys to Super Bowl this time

It cost them a few more hotel rooms and a few more seats on the plane, but the Broncos are all together this week.

When they were last on this stage two years ago, the Broncos ruffled some feathers by leaving their players who were on injured reserve back in Denver until Thursday of Super Bowl week.

One of the guys who got left behind was cornerback Chris Harris, who was on IR then with a torn ACL.

“That’s what you want,” Harris said, via Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post. “Nobody is left behind, and everybody is going to be there together.”

Linebacker Von Miller and defensive end Derek Wolfe also had short weeks then, but the Broncos decided to bring the entire roster with them Sunday.

So while¬†left tackle Ryan Clady, defensive end Kenny Anunike, safety Omar Bolden,¬†safety David Bruton Jr., tight end Jeff Heuerman, tackle Ty Sambrailo, and wide receiver Kyle Williams won’t be able to contribute on the field, they at least get to be part of the team.

    The Seahawks didn’t bring their injured guys either. Guess it didn’t hurt them too much

    I wonder if they’ll be paid under the table like Elway was to compensate for the travel costs

    Just goes to show how awful a coach John Fox was – things like this and not having the team prepared to deal with crowd noise

    Do they all normally go to road games? What do they do while everyone else is, you know……. working?

    GREAT MOVE!!! Even if they can’t play make them put a jersey on for team unity!!!

    Carolina is going to bet them anyway but that will help them pump up the team by being there!!!

    Class move

    Its nice to bring the guys, but while everyone else is working you have to wonder if these injured guys partying will be a bad influence.

    A lot of coaches are of the belief that a bunch of guys on crutches watching practice is bad for morale. I could see that.

    Are they injured or are they “injured”?

    A result of their strategy of looking at everything they did in their last Super Bowl and doing the exact opposite this time. I suspect the most important of those (or at least very high on the list) will be: “don’t take a safety on the first play from scrimmage.”

    Would that include the HGH team members as well, or is that just the forehead? Swept under the rug, as usual.

    Manning is a *cheater.

    Would they have left Peyton?

    A certain someone who is related to some guy on the team that throws footballs, brought the caseload of HGH.
