NFL week 15 Horoscopes: Statement Sunday edition

NFL fans received a gift from the scheduling gods this weekend as there are six matchups with gigantic playoff implications in what has been dubbed, “Statement Sunday.” Once again we turned to the heavens to see what the future might hold for each of the 12 teams in the featured games. Here are your week 15 NFL horoscopes:

Denver offers Manning more than a ‘Play Ahead’ defense

The 2012 Denver Broncos have the makeup to be the best team that Peyton Manning has ever been a part of. This is not because of their explosive offense, or impressive but rather the emergence of their defense as one of the league’s premier units. In Manning’s days as a Colt, he had a defense that was referred to as a ‘play ahead’ defense. That is not the case in Denver, as this Broncos’ defense is primed for success regardless of the situation. The quarterback position was the missing piece to this team in 2011, and now they have one of the league’s best ever.

Von Miller says Melvin Ingram ‘can play almost anywhere’

Poolside in paradise

Pro Bowl week officially is under way, as evidenced by the trickle of players already finding their way to the Marriott Ihilani in Honolulu on Monday afternoon.

Forecasting top-five picks’ NFL careers

The new CBA, including its rookie wage scale, has definitely decreased the price tag for top-five picks, but the repercussions for missing are still huge. Before you have even played a down, before you have even had your first jersey stitched, draft analysts and fans are asking whether you are a star or a bust.

Broncos, Texans doing it all for their defenses

The Broncos and Texans, both of whom will run new schemes next season, realize they can immediately make a move because this is a great draft for defense.

Day 2 should feature Bowers, QBs, CBs

As we enter Day 2 of the 2011 NFL Draft, here are some topics we’re mulling as teams set their draft boards for Rounds two and 3. Teams change their boards after the first round, adjusting to what happened and re-assessing the players who are left.

Lombardi: Miller will be third-down force

Von Miller, billed as of the cleanest prospects in the draft and the best pass rusher available, fills an immediate on the outside as the Broncos transition to a 4-3 defensive scheme.

Data Points: Top LBs rarely match hype

According to NFL.com analyst and legendary Dallas Cowboys personnel guru Gil Brandt, six linebackers have been drafted in the top 10 during the past decade with less-than-fantastic results … like having only one Pro Bowl appearance collectively.

Bills dine with Gabbert prior to workout

COLUMBIA, Mo. – On the in-house TV monitors here at the athletic facility, there is a graphic that reads, “Welcome NFL scouts to the 2011 University of Missouri Pro Day.” And with QB prospect Blaine Gabbert set to work out, there will be plenty of scouts in attendance — not to mention coaches and GMs.
