KANSAS CITY, Mo. - In the final days of Jovan Belcher's life, he could have taken advantage of numerous avenues for support provided by the Kansas City Chiefs and the NFL. This past July, the NFL established an emergency hotline that operates 24 hours a day and connects players, staff, and family members in crisis with mental-health professionals who are not affiliated with the league or its teams. There are also numerous symposiums and support personnel whose jobs are to ensure the well-being of the players.

Broncos 31, Steelers 19 DENVER - Peyton Manning made a successful NFL return from a year's sabbatical to lead Denver past Pittsburgh. The four-time MVP coming off four neck surgeries completed 19 of 26 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns. He got a big assist from another free agent, cornerback Tracy Porter, whose 43-yard interception return of Ben Roethlisberger's pass with two minutes left sealed the win. Manning, jettisoned by the Colts in March after missing all of last season with a nerve injury that weakened his throwing arm, hit Demaryius Thomas with a 71-yard touchdown toss for his first score as a Bronco.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - When Christian Hackenberg received the OK from Penn State coach James Franklin to read a short statement before the start of his media day news conference, one got the feeling that he wasn't going to be talking about his NFL draft chances. The Nittany Lions' junior quarterback, who will be eligible to declare for the NFL draft at the end of the 2015 season, has bristled at questions about his future before he has even taken a snap in competition this season, and made it clear Thursday he'd rather not be asked.

CHIP KELLY has a so-called "educational philosophy" for how he evaluates his players. "I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand," Kelly recited at his news conference before practice yesterday. "You can talk about it and show it to them on tape; that's all good and right, but they got to do it. "Our decisions in terms of our evaluations of them as players has to be based on demonstrated evidence. " Another trademark of Kelly's coaching style is the exceptionally fast pace of his practices, which he says has benefited the second-, third- and fourth-string players by getting them more reps and more opportunities to be evaluated.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Christian Hackenberg knew the inevitable question was coming. He's had to answer it dozens of times since his sophomore year ended with his redemptive performance in Penn State's dramatic overtime victory in the Pinstripe Bowl. But his dread for it hadn't waned. Wearing shorts and a T-shirt from the Manning Passing Academy, where he worked as a counselor this summer, Hackenberg reluctantly honored a request to again give his thoughts on whether he will consider entering the NFL draft following the conclusion of the 2015 season, when he becomes eligible.

IT WOULD BE so great to know what Chip Kelly was really thinking on Jan. 17, 2013, the day he was introduced as the 21st coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Did Kelly know then that to fully implement his vision, he would need a different type of running back than LeSean McCoy, a different type of quarterback than Nick Foles or Michael Vick, a different type of receiver than DeSean Jackson, and a totally revised secondary? Did he envision that the nexus of contract, age and salary cap issues would mean he would shed Trent Cole, Jeremy Maclin, Todd Herremans and Evan Mathis, among others, by the time he opened his third training camp, for which workouts begin on Sunday?

WITH NFL training camps opening, you have questions and I have answers. So let's get to work: If memory serves, you picked the Arizona Cardinals to win the Super Bowl last year, which is, like, about the 40th year in a row you've missed on the Super Bowl winner. Who are you picking this year so I can be sure to steer clear of them when I go to Vegas?   Shows you what you know. It's been only 22 years. I had the Cowboys all the way in 1993 when they crushed the Bills in Super Bowl XXVII.

THE SCARLET LETTER has now been officially attached to the golden boy. The NFL branded New England quarterback Tom Brady a cheater yesterday when commissioner Roger Goodell upheld the four-game suspension Brady got for the role he played in using football inflated below league-mandated standards for the 2015 AFC Championship Game. Brady, who led the Patriots past the Indianapolis Colts and ultimately the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl, had appealed the suspension that had come down because of the saga labeled "Deflategate.

IF YOU ARE a man whose mind stopped evolving at the Neanderthal age or, say, 1975, you could have an issue with the Arizona Cardinals hiring Jen Welter as an intern to coach inside linebackers through their training camp and preseason. In 2014, Welter, who played 14 seasons of pro football, mostly in the Women's Football Alliance, became the first woman to hold a non-kicking position in a men's professional football league when she played running back and special teams for the Texas Revolution of the Indoor Football League.

The more I look at the four-game suspension of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for his part in Deflateapalooza, the more ridiculous it becomes. When the NFL's decision on his appeal is announced this week, the suspension should be overturned by commissioner Roger Goodell. Here's how I know the suspension is wrong: Goodell came up with it in the first place. Go ahead. Name something Goodell has gotten right in the last year when it comes to disciplinary action against players. He can't tell the difference between what matters and what doesn't, what is serious and what isn't, and to what extent the circumstances surrounding an event should affect the league's reaction.

The prospective third-string quarterback of the Eagles stopped in the center of a NovaCare Complex practice field Thursday to shake owner Jeffrey Lurie's hand and chat a while, and then Tim Tebow turned to his right to face a familiar sight in a familiar setting. There, 105 reporters and writers clustered together in a tight, sweat-stinking group under an oppressive midafternoon sun. It was 90 degrees, the air like moist gauze, and from the weather to the horde of media awaiting Tebow, this could have been Gainesville, Fla., in 2008 or Cortland, N.Y., in 2012.
