The Denver Broncos insist they're not the NFL's new bad boys.
They've racked up $134,000 in fines already for crossing the line on both tackles and talk and watched three of their players get served with suspension letters from the league office.
They say it's coincidental.
If the NFL upholds his punishment, the Broncos will have to face the Oakland Raiders, the league's longtime renegades, without linebacker Joe Mays, whose vicious hit last weekend sent Matt Schaub's helmet and a chunk of his left ear flying.
The Broncos (1-2) are already thin at linebacker with Nate Irving (concussion) hurt and D.J. Williams serving a six-game suspension for violating the league's banned-substances policy, the same infraction that sidelined tight end Virgil Green for the first four games.
