Looking to improve after a disappointing 7-9 2013 season, the New York Giants raided two players from the Denver Broncos. Kick returner Trindon Holliday and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will leave Denver and play for New York this fall; In 2013, Holliday ranked No. 5 in the NFL on kick returns with an average of 27 yards. To ensure success on returns, the Giants also brought in former Chiefs return man Quintin Demps, who ranked No. 1 in the NFL with an average of more than 30 yards per kick return.
Pass rusher DeMarcus Ware got a $30 million, three-year contract from the Denver Broncos on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after being released by the Dallas Cowboys.

COMMENTARY | It may be a truly beautiful city at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, but Denver, Colorado is one of the last places NFL teams want to visit. The Broncos have one of the great home-field records in NFL history, a league best 191-65-1 between 1974 and 2006. They also have one of the best quarterbacks of this generation in Peyton Manning.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey is handling the uncertainty of his sprained foot in stride.
There are plenty of familiar story lines heading into Week 4 of the NFL season. The Denver Broncos are looking like a championship team. New Orleans is back on top in the NFC South. Miami appears to be one of those “surprise” teams that could make the playoffs. Oakland is struggling once again. And New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin is on the hot seat. [ Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football is open for business ] Coughlin’s teams seemingly start slow every year before sneaking into the playoffs, but that appears very unlikely right now. New York was embarrassed by the Carolina Panthers, 38-0, this past Sunday, and appear to be spiraling out of control. The Giants are averaging only 44.3 rushing yards per game (last in the NFL), their defense has produced three sacks (tied for worst in the NFL) and allowed 38.3 points per game (worst in the league). Meanwhile, Giants quarterback Eli Manning has thrown five touchdowns and eight interceptions and owns a 70.5 passer rating. While the first day of fall indicates September for most people, rumors about Coughlin’s job security is the needle for NFL fans. THIS WEEK'S THREE HOTTEST SEATS 1. Greg Schiano, Tampa Bay After two straight close losses, the Bucs decided to end all suspense and lose 23-3 against the New England Patriots. Former Bucs coach Raheem Morris probably believes he could do more this team than the lackluster squads he was given – and is probably correct. 2. Tom Coughlin, New York Giants New York’s next three opponents are Kansas City, Philadelphia and Chicago. Unless the Giants can pull off an upset, this could be a 0-6 team. 3. Ron Rivera, Carolina Carolina had a strong win heading into its bye week, but this team still has plenty of issues. The Charlotte Observer reported Rivera will not lose his job during the season. That does not mean it will not occur after this year. GETTING WARMER Mike Shanahan, Washington Fred Smoot recently ripped Shanahan , and it is hard to blame him after Washington’s 0-3 start. Shanahan has led Washington to only one winning season in the past four years. It is just a matter of time before Washington general manager Bruce Allen begs Jon Gruden to come out of retirement and coach his team (both men worked together in Tampa Bay). GETTING COLDER Rex Ryan, New York Jets The Jets are 2-1 and Coughlin’s team is 0-3? Now that is something most NFL observers did not foresee prior to this season. - - - Hit us up on Twitter @YShutdownCorner , email us at shutdown.corner@yahoo.com and "Like" Shutdown Corner on Facebook for NFL conversation 365 days a year, the way it should be.
