I know how much everyone loves their morning Nuggets, and I hate to do this to you guys, but you're getting a strictly link version this morning. That's the bad news. The good news is that I'm up for a big promotion at work and have to prepare for the interview which is tomorrow. They switched it a forward a day on very late notice so I've got to get crackin'. I'd like a ton of good lucks when I wake up tomorrow morning in the comments. Thanking you in advance....
In the non-Aaron world there was a bit of bad news all around. Steve Sabol of NFL Films passed away and his legacy is enormous. I can remember watching NFL Films and they're what taught me about the older players. Our recent OLB acquisition Clark Haggans was suspended for 3 games for his previous DUI. We knew that was a risk when we signed him, but most observers were a bit surprised. He hasn't played a snap yet, so it should be too hard to find his replacement for the the 3 games. And, did you hear, Aldon Smith was in a serious car accident over the weekend? He's fine. Everyone was fine. He played a helluva game. And the last item before the jump is the AP Pro32 power rankings comments. The rankings themselves are down the page. But the comments are wonderful. Most pundits see us as dominating and intimidating and think that Alex Smith is the real deal. It's nice to get an outside opinion every so often. One note: all writers have us at No. 1 except the Dallas writer. Don't know who leads his list, though.... on to the links.

Sorry for the rushed approach. There's no grouping or any kind of coherency. I've got to dust my suit off and brush my tooth and what not. I'll be back tomorrow with a promotion and a BIG Nuggets.
