Brandon McManus has inked a new deal with the Denver Broncos just hours before the game tonight against the Chargers.
The guys start off hour two with the defensive line and if they can stop the run tonight against the Chargers. Brandon hopes guys can plug up the middle on defense better this year.

Stoke’s beef is with the ejection that happened yesterday in the Seahawks/Packers game.
We are live one the air for one more hour on game day. One key to the game that no one has brought up, is special teams. Brandon says the coverage units need to be better and get rid of the penalties.
