    dont you mean Mario Haggan? Or is there another LB with that last name..

  2. The Denver Broncos linebacker is named Mario, not Clark…
    Although i can see how you would get the two names confused, they look so similar.

  3. From the Denver Post:
    Broncos coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Brian Xanders will sit down with quarterback Ingle Martin this morning. If Martin passes the interview, he could be practicing with the Broncos this afternoon.
    Isn’t there a better quarterback out there than a pretty-much unknown? Like seriously….I mean, I’ve heard of him…but he’s never been a starter… 4-12 for the Broncos this year. I wish i didn’t have to say that, but it’s my opinion. the Broncos are screwed this year.

  4. “Swayze Waters”? Dang. That poor kid’s mom must have watched alot of Dirty Dancing and Ghost back in the ’80s.
