Denver Broncos week is officially in full swing and Chiefs Kingdom is buzzing with news. There are several things to get on this Broncos week humpday, so we’ll jump right in.
Starting with the biggest story of the week, one of Dwayne Bowe’s attorney’s claim that the start wide receiver is “100 percent innocent.” This from a statement by Bowe’s attorney, Kevin E.J. Regan, released to the “Kansas City Star.”
“My investigation reveals that Dwayne Bowe is unequivocally, 100 percent innocent in this matter. We look forward to clearing his good name at our earliest opportunity.”
The article by Chiefs’ beat reporter, Terez Paylor is a really good read that also contains quotes from head coach Andy Reid and Dwayne Bowe himself in regards to the situation. Check it out here.
Chiefs historian Bob Moore has posted another great piece at the “Mothership” talking about the Chiefs and Broncos rivalry.
During the ‘90s, the AFC Western Division became the most competitive in the entire NFL, with the Raiders seemingly having an edge early-on over the Broncos, the Chiefs over the Raiders, and the Broncos over the Chiefs. John Elway was Schottenheimer’s nemesis at Mile High Stadium, during the last decade, while at home the Chiefs could manage no better than a .500 record against Denver.

Finally, in what passes for “breaking news” at NFL.com, it was reported earlier that Broncos quarterback, Peyton Manning, has decided to take the day off of work to rest for the Chiefs. This from NFL’s Greg Rosenthall:
Manning was not on the field when the Broncos started practice on Wednesday, NFL Media’s Steve Cyphers reported from Denver. Broncos interim head coach Jack Del Rio indicated Monday that Manning (and other veterans) could get some rest in practice this week.
That’s your Wednesday Fix, Addicts. Broncos week rolls on until the Chiefs finally play the team in Denver Sunday night in primetime!
