his World Cup squad on Award for his accessibility and enthusiastic c

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Jerome Baker Dolphins Jersey . - Terrance Knighton has experienced quite a growth spurt in Denver this season. Granted, that sounds outlandish for a 331-pound guy known as Pot Roast.However, hes a huge reason the Broncos (11-3) are more than just the Peyton Manning Show. Hes the fulcrum of Denvers fourth-rated defence thats second in the league against the run.Hes got a big presence, said defensive co-ordinator Jack Del Rio. Hes really matured as a football player. I had him when he was a youngster in Jacksonville and hes grown up a lot. Hes a dominant presence for us in the middle of our defence. And he does take on that role of leadership and take it seriously.The teams outspoken defensive captain recently proclaimed the Broncos will once again beat the Patriots in the playoffs even if its in Foxborough, where Denver hasnt won since 2006.After coach John Fox admonished him afterward, Knighton didnt back down from the promise he made in the jubilation of Denvers fourth straight divisional title last weekend.I feel like our defence right now is playing the best of any defence in the NFL, and we want to carry this team to a Super Bowl victory, Knighton said. I stand by what I said — I dont care who we play, where we play. Put the ball down and were going to come out with a victory.After coming up big for the Broncos in their Super Bowl run last season, the loquacious Knighton said he wanted a bigger leadership role this year and his teammates elected him a captain.So, it was no surprise when he pulled a Joe Namath.Yeah, he guaranteed it. And they won it. I mean, hes a little more in control of the game than I am, Knighton said. But I believe that when players make guarantees, you have to be at a certain level to say that. And when you have a top-5 offence and a top-5 defence, and me being one of the main reasons why we have a top defence, shoot, I felt like I had the floor and I could say it.His Super Bowl pledge quickly crawled across TV screens everywhere and created a stir on Twitter. Yeah, all Patriots fans, about 500 to 600 comments from Patriots fans, he said.Im pretty sure there are guys on this team who agree with me that wont say anything and probably dont want to get involved in being a headline or getting caught up in that, Knighton said. Peytons not that type of guy; he just goes out and plays. But Im a vocal guy. I speak my mind.Obviously, thats why you guys talk to me, but coach Del Rio always told me, since my rookie year, Youre a grown man. If you want to say something, put your name by it. And I put my name by it.Its that accountability and accessibility that earned Knighton the Darrent Williams Good Guy Award, presented annually by the Denver chapter of the Pro Football Writers of America.Obviously, theres been a lot of talk about me talking about winning other things but this just means a lot, Knighton said. A lot of my characteristics, my character, I get it from my mom, Rochelle Knighton. Ive got to say that. She always teaches me to be respectful and give more respect to the people that respect you.She also taught him never to back down from anyone he faces or anything he says.Its an overall consensus in the locker room. Guys might not say it but we all feel the same way, Super Bowl or bust, really, Knighton said. Mr. (John) Elway put together a team that he feels should win the Super Bowl. We dont want to let him down, and we dont want to let ourselves down.We dont want to come up short like we did last year and we want to improve and the only way to improve from last year is actually winning the title.Notes: WR Emmanuel Sanders was sent home during practice Saturday with flu-like symptoms. Hes listed as questionable for Monday nights game at Cincinnati. So is Manning, but both are expected to play. Aside from the season he missed because of spinal fusion surgery, Manning has never missed a start in his 17-year career. ... Manning is 13-4 on Monday nights and 10-2 on Thursday nights.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Minkah Fitzpatrick Dolphins Jersey .Y. -- Scott Chandler is returning to Buffalo, where he spent the past three seasons establishing himself as the Bills top pass-catching tight end.
