Denver offensive lineman Manny Ramirez isn't getting upset about a Broncos loss in this amusing screen capture, which has already spawned a popular Vine on view below: Instead, he's pissed that Brandon McManus, who the Broncos picked up after unwisely jettisoning Matt Prater, missed his fourth field goal in his last eight attempts. But a defeat could have easily happened: Denver needed a huge fourth quarter to cement a 39-36 victory over the Miami Dolphins. Afterward, fans on Twitter were torn, with most elated but many uncertain about whether the squad has what it takes to make another Super Bowl run. Here are our picks for the twenty most memorable tweets, supplemented by the aforementioned Vine.

Denver released future Hall of Fame cornerback Champ Bailey this past March, but he was back yesterday, having signed a one-day contract so he could retire as a Bronco -- and during a press appearance to mark the transition, he was his usual even-tempered self. Not so one young Champ fan whose reaction was caught on video. According to Joe Kolega, he told his son "he needed to wear his Champ Bailey jersey...and then he asked why after I put it on him...OMG!"

OMG indeed. Check out the hilarious clip of Kolega the Younger's meltdown, followed by one of Champ saying farewell to football.

We knew going into yesterday's match-up between Denver and St. Louis that those confidently predicting a Broncos blow-out were either stupid or delusional. After all, the Rams are a better team than their record indicates, with a win over Seattle standing as Exhibit A. But even we were stunned by the desultory way Peyton Manning and company collapsed en route to a 22-7 embarrassment. Afterward, Twitter Nation debated whether the contest was a momentary slip or an indication of much greater problems. Count down the twenty most memorable tweets below, supplemented by photos from the game.

Once upon a time, the Broncos-Raiders rivalry was one of the NFL's best -- but no longer. Even after losing in humiliating fashion to the Patriots last week, Peyton Manning and company took a while to get focused on Oakland and wound up trailing 10-6 during the middle of the second quarter. But then they woke up and casually pounded out a 41-17 win against what may be the most hapless Raiders squad ever. Twitter Nation responded in nasty fashion, ripping the O-towners with memorable frustration and vitriol. Below, check out our picks for the twenty most memorable tweets, supplemented by photos from the game and a bonus Vine in which Broncos backup QB Brock Osweiler thinks he's about to get into the game but doesn't. It's a laugh riot -- just like yesterday's game.

Niyakko Rush: Can You Help Make Refugee Soccer Team's Dream for Wheels Come True?

The Niyakko Rush in brand-new uniforms, as seen on their Facebook page.
This week's cover story, "A Sporting Chance," traces the rise of the Niyakko Rush, a grassroots youth soccer club made up primarily of refugees living in a single apartment house in Aurora. Many of the players have come from countries ravaged by political and military upheaval, including Myanmar, Somalia and Nepal -- Niyakko is a Burmese word for "brother" -- and their journeys to the United States have been long and arduous, involving dangerous border crossings and years in makeshift relocation camps.

But it's a trip that can be measured in minutes that the group is primarily concerned about these days. Without reliable motorized transportation, Niyakko's scheduled games have been somewhat limited this past summer (they've been known to jog a mile to their practice field) and could well dwindle further in the coming bad weather.

One of the most enjoyable things about the Broncos' 35-21 win over the Chargers last night (and there were many of them) was the sight of San Diego QB Philip Rivers's frequent temper tantrums. Ranting, complaining, yelling into his own helmet: He put on quite a show in defeat, and Twitter Nation definitely noticed. In fact, the main debate during and after the game was whether Rivers is a cry baby, a whiner or both. Continue for twenty hilarious examples, illustrated with images from the game.
