Denver Broncos release John Boyett after drunken assault

The Denver Broncos released safety John Boyett on October 24 after the practice-squad player made an ass of himself during a night of drinking. According to local police, the 24-year-old punched and head butted a cab driver in the head and then dug a hole with a stolen shovel and tried to hide from police. He also head butted the window of a police car and told the cops to call Broncos’ general manager and executive vice president of football operations John Elway.

The Denver Post reported that Boyett began the night drinking at a pub called the Sports Book Bar & Grill. Patrons and employees there said he was making threats and was intoxicated. They claimed that he attempted to take food from a customer’s plate and was asked to leave the establishment. He then refused to pay his bill and threatened to hit a bartender.

Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger sets new NFL record

Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger set a new NFL record on October 26 after throwing six touchdown passes and passing for a total of 522 yards. The remarkable performance came in Pittsburgh’s 51-34 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. But the record wasn’t for the most TD passes and yards gained in a game. Instead, Roethlisberger sets the record for becoming the only NFL player to pass for more than 500 yards in two separate games. The 522 yards tie him for the fourth-most in league history.

He did come close to the 63-year-old all-time passing yard record though and he would have broken the old mark if he had managed to gain just 33 more yards. There have been 15 quarterbacks to throw for more than 500 yards in the league’s history, but no one had ever managed to pull off the feat twice until Roethlisberger. He first threw over 500 yards back in 2009 when he tossed a franchise-record 503 in a victory against the Green Bay Packers. His October 26th game set new Pittsburgh records for both touchdowns and passing yards.

Peyton Manning sets new NFL touchdown-pass record

As most NFL fans predicted, Denver Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning set a new league record for touchdown passes on October 19 when he connected for his 509th, which broke the old mark of 508 set by Brett Favre. The 38-year-old Manning threw four touchdown passes in the game against the San Francisco 49ers and Denver went on to win it by a score of 42-17. The record-breaking pass was caught by receiver Demaryius Thomas as Manning went into the game with 506 touchdown passes and left it with 510.

Manning set the new record in 246 regular-season games while it took Favre 56 more contests to reach 208. Many experts figured Manning’s career was all but over when he was cut from the Indianapolis Colts back in March of 2012. However, he was released from the team due to medical reasons, not his playing form. The quarterback underwent four neck surgeries and a spinal-fusion operation. It appeared that he wouldn’t be able to recover properly and stand up to the physical punishment of the sport.

Joseph Randle makes deal with underwear company after shoplifting

For most people, crime doesn’t pay, but that isn’t exactly the case for running back Joseph Randle of the Dallas Cowboys. The NFL player was recently arrested for shoplifting at the Stonebriar Center Shopping Mall in Frisco Texas, and was then rewarded with a contract from a clothing company. For some unknown reason Randle decided it was a good idea to steal two-pairs of Polo underwear and a bottle of cologne.

Police said they were called to the store by the location’s security personnel after they detained the 22-year-old football player. They then took him to Frisco City Jail where he was charged with a Class B misdemeanor for stealing items worth between $50 and $500. He was then released after a bond was posted.
