Pryce's philosophy: Silence is golden - ESPN.com - Len Pasquarelli
Oct. 2, 2006 - The Baltimore Ravens remain undefeated following Sunday's comeback victory over the San Diego Chargers, but not unscathed. An MRI exam on Monday morning revealed that starting left guard Edwin Mulitalo suffered a torn right triceps tendon in the second half of the Ravens' 16-13 victory, and the eighth-year veteran underwent surgery later in the day to repair the injury. Mulitalo will be lost for the balance of the season and the Ravens will place him on the injured reserve list. Mulitalo, 32, left the game in the second half, with his right arm dangling at his side. There were concerns in the Baltimore locker room afterwards that Mulitalo's injury was serious. Second-year veteran Jason Brown, a fourth-round choice in the 2005 draft who has appeared in just nine games, will replace Mulitalo in the lineup.
Mr. Know It All - Denver Post - Mike Klis
10/02/2006 - From the hills and hollows near the West Virginia-Kentucky border came the Hatfields, the McCoys and Larry Coyer. The world knows the story about the feuding family antagonists. Coyer, who grew up two hours upriver in a place called Green Bottom, W.Va., may have some hick in his accent and tenacity in spirit, but he also is the brains behind one of the best defensive units in Broncos history. Ignorant he is not. Mean and crude he is not. Coyer is polite - good luck tracking down a man who uses more yes sirs, no sirs and thank you sirs in conversation. A stereotype of Southern hospitality. "No pun intended, but as a man, Larry has an old soul," said Ebenezer Ekuban, a Broncos starting defensive end. "He's real laid-back, gentle. Kind of quiet. Very secure in the way he is." And as a defensive coordinator?
Pryce's philosophy: Silence is golden - Denver Post - Anthony Cotton
10/01/2006 - Baltimore - After the Baltimore Ravens' unlikely 16-13 victory Sunday over San Diego, Trevor Pryce waxed philosophically about, among other things, winning ugly and his contributions to helping a defense-oriented team become more inclusive of its offensive brethren. There was only one topic the defensive end refused to entertain - next Monday's game at Invesco Field at Mile High against the Broncos. "I'm not talking about that at all, absolutely not," Pryce said.
The making of an NFL-caliber receiver - Colorado Springs Gazette - Frank Schwab
October 01, 2006 - Brandon Marshall said he was 6 years old when he first dreamed of playing in the NFL. Many kids have that dream. Marshall made it. Marshall, a rookie receiver with the Denver Broncos, made his NFL debut against the Kansas City Chiefs two weeks ago. "I always knew I was going to play NFL football," Marshall said. "I've been preparing myself forever." Marshall had plenty of help to get to the NFL. His father, a standout high school player, started his football education. A track coach and personal trainer turned him into an NFL-caliber athlete. A pair of college position coaches taught him how to play receiver. A chance encounter with a barbecue cook when he was about 10 years old eventually led to a couple of summers learning from Cris Carter, one of the greatest receivers in history. "You can learn from anyone, it doesn't matter who it is," Marshall said.
Broncos' Brown out ... but not down - Rocky Mountain News - Lynn DeBruin
September 30, 2006 - There was a time when Shirley Brown didn't have to strain her eyes to spot her youngest son on the television set. When he was at Penn State, she always could locate No. 86, chasing after an opposing quarterback, making a tackle or creating havoc with the size, strength and speed he first displayed in tiny Alvin, S.C. Then, when he went on to Cleveland as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2000 draft, she simply followed No. 92, an easy task, considering he started every game as a rookie and flashed the ability that had earned him the nickname "Quiet Storm." In 2006, times are different, and as NFL opening weekend kicked off, she managed to see her son's familiar physique only once, when cameras panned to the Broncos sideline.
Ex-NFL player to appeal limits on eastern Idaho hunting reserve - Salt Lake Tribune - Associated Press
10/02/2006 - BLACKFOOT, Idaho - Former Denver Broncos lineman Rulon Jones plans to appeal Bingham County's decision on his proposed private game reserve in eastern Idaho, even though his business was approved. Mark Ferrin, Jones's attorney, sent a fax to the county's planning and zoning board protesting limits placed on the so-called "shooter-bull" operation - a penned hunt for farm raised elk or other animals. Ferrin questioned the need for Jones to obtain a special-use permit, even though the board approved the permit after a six-hour public hearing on Sept. 20.
