Terrell Davis does Pops proud, earning Hall induction in 11th year of eligibility
It took Terrell Davis until his 11th year of eligibility to get into the Hall of Fame. Broncos fans also believe team owner Pat Bowlen has waited too long. To that end, Davis used part of his 27-minute induction speech to campaign for Bowlen’s induction next year. [...]

Kickin’ it with Kiz: Only grumpy old men don’t like Broncos star Terrell Davis in the Hall of Fame
It is absolute nonsense to suggest Broncos running back Terrell Davis lowers the bar for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Curtis Martin got in the Hall, and no one would take him over T.D. Seth, Denver Kiz: There are grumpy old men in my profession yelling at Davis to get off their lawn, as if they are the only true guardians of that hallowed football ground in Canton, Ohio.  Well, Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News never rushed for 2,000 yards in an NFL season, and Ron Borges of the Boston Herald has yet to be named MVP of the Super Bowl. By any reasonable metric, the Broncos are underrepresented in the Hall of Fame. When discussing unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick, you are a bit of a snowflake, Kiz. As a business owner, I have always sought employees that could do the job and fit our culture. I no more want a social justice warrior than a hard drug user or a wife beater. Each takes away from what I’m trying to achieve: a first-rate customer experience with profit that accrues to the business. Kaepernick, his skill notwithstanding, is a pain in the butt. When hired on, he knew the rules. He chose to put himself and his activism ahead of his career and is suffering the consequences. House rules! Joe, Castle Rock Kiz: Is there an NFL rule that requires a player to stand during the national anthem? When commissioner Roger Goodell visited Denver last week, he saluted Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall for raising his voice about social issues. To the best of my knowledge, not a single Broncos player, coach or front-office executive worried that Marshall kneeling during the national anthem was detrimental to his productivity or the team’s performance. Now maybe you actually do regard a silent protest as something as bad as drug abuse, Joe. Hey, it’s your house. This snowflake is thankful not to work there. It makes no sense that sports journalists have made it their mission to paint Kaepernick as a victim. It’s all politics. NFL leans right, media leans left. Adam, Pittsburgh Kiz: There are no politics on the scoreboard.  Kaepernick has thrown 72 touchdown passes in the NFL. He also has been the starting quarterback in the Super Bowl. Dude can play a little. That’s what counts for me. Kaepernick is a team and fan-base killer. He’s a bum. Rich, representing the 970 Kiz: Can we revisit the 2013 NFL playoffs? Kaepernick lost the NFC championship game 23-17 to Seattle. Two weeks later, those same Seahawks routed Peyton Manning 43-8 in the Super Bowl. You say Kaepernick is a bum. Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman told USA Today the league’s problem with Kaepernick is a control issue: “It’s not about football or color. It’s about, ‘Boy, stay in your place.’ ” And today’s parting shot is a television programming request. Kiz, if you could somehow get Southwest Airlines to quit running the same commercial six times per Rockies telecast, I’ll fly you to Seattle or … ooh, Cabo. Thomas, Aurora [...]

Officially official: Terrell Davis enshrined as fifth Bronco in Pro Football Hall of Fame
CANTON, Ohio — Terrell Davis said he wasn’t going to cry. He envisioned how this all might play out and he tried to prepare himself as best he could, and if anyone was betting on him shedding tears, well, odds were against it. So he said. Davis has been a blubbering mess for days as his dreams nearly two decades in the making have finally been realized. But Saturday night, in front of a crowd that included his former Bronco coaches and teammates as well as his family, Davis remained composed and poised as he was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, becoming the fifth Bronco with a bronze bust in Canton’s hallowed halls. Presented by his longtime agent, Neil Schwartz, who promised Davis nearly 23 years ago that he would be here, Davis stood at the center of Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium to unveil his bust and slowly rattle off his lengthy list of thank yous, from his offensive line, to his coaches, to his Pop Warner coach Frank White, to his wife and family. http://www.denverpost.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/4-davis.mp3 Seated in the audience to the right of the stadium was his former coach, Mike Shanahan; his offensive coordinator, Gary Kubiak; his running backs coach, Bobby Turner; Broncos president/CEO Joe Ellis; and a contingent of former teammates. Seated just feet from the podium were his quarterback, John Elway, and tight end, Shannon Sharpe, both donning their own gold jackets. And in the front row were his mother, Kateree, wearing a blue No. 30 Broncos jersey with “Terrell’s Mom” on the back, his wife, two sons and daughter. “When I first learned that I had been elected to the Hall, I was asked how I might feel wearing this gold jacket and standing next to my bust. I guess I’d be excited, but I really didn’t know,” Davis told the crowd. “But now I can say the overwhelming feeling running through my body today is gratitude. I am grateful to the selection committee. I am grateful to be joining this elite fraternity with all these men. I am grateful to my friends and family and grateful to this wonderful game of football.” The youngest of six boys, Davis recalled his journey that started in San Diego and led him to Georgia and then Denver and now Canton. His motivation, he said, was a love of the game and of his father, whose passing, Davis said, was “the greatest pain I would ever experience.” “I loved the physicality of the game, but I had also convinced myself that playing football provided me a way to gain my dad’s approval by proving I was tough,” Davis said. “That’s what drove me. I loved the game, and gaining my dad’s approval.” For six months, since he was selected as a member of the Class of 2017 back in February, Davis has lived a whirlwind and surreal life that he remembers in moments. He remembers sitting in a room while a stranger etched the final details into a bust that will live alongside the game’s greats in Canton.

He won’t forget sitting in a high school auditorium turned into a makeshift press room, where he recalled memories of his seven-year NFL career and the relationships he built along the way. And he’s thought about his father, Joe Davis, often wondering what he would think of this spectacle and of his son. “My dad never saw me play in the National Football League, and to this day, I think about him and I wonder, did I gain his respect?” Davis said. “Dad, I hope you’re looking down, smiling and uttering the words: ‘Son, I’m proud of you.’ ” He’s thought about his brothers, all reunited in Canton for the first time in years to celebrate what Davis said is a group accomplishment. And he’s thought about all those times he told reporters and fans that, if he never got the Hall of Fame nod, he would still be satisfied with a career that was bookended with punishing hits and packed with a pair of Super Bowl titles, a Super Bowl MVP award, a league MVP, a membership to the 2,000-yard club, and a slew of Broncos rushing records. Those were lies, he admitted. Then on Friday, inside the Canton Civic Center where he was surrounded by dozens of fellow Hall of Famers, Davis stood on another s [...]

What Marshall calls Brady's 'arrogant diss' is . . . well, something less than that
The headline is explosive: MORE PATRIOTS Patriots make quite the catch in Rex Burkhead  Postcard from camp, Day 8: Scrimmage shows Garoppolo's not yet in Brady's class  Belichick explains why Brady's training regimen isn't for everybody Patriots go all out for Brady's 40th birthday  It certainly isn't beyond the realm to think Brady might have mouthed off to Marshall; as a group of stories gathered by ESPN's Mike Reiss in honor of Brady's 40th birthday show, he can be quite the competitor. So what exactly did he say that set Marshall off, that has the Broncos linebacker vowing revenge, that prompted him to circle the Patriots' Nov. 12 visit to Denver on his calendar? Well . . .

NFL commissioner: Kaepernick isn't being blackballed
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says teams aren't blackballing Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the national anthem last year. "No, teams make decisions (based) on what's in the best interest of their team ... and they make those decisions individually," Goodell said Thursday following his appearance at a forum with about 200 fans at the Denver Broncos' indoor practice facility. Kaepernick, who opted out of his contract with the 49ers on March 3, has drawn interest from Seattle and Baltimore but remains unemployed a year after throwing for 16 touchdowns and four interceptions in 11 games.
