Five Broncos That Need to Stay Healthy

August 23rd, 2019

After watching last Monday’s preseason game between the Denver Broncos and the San Francisco 49ers, three things became quite apparent: our starting defense looks pretty good, our starting offense needs a little work, and the team lacks some serious depth. Preseason football is basically meaningless, as most coaches only play their starting units for a handful of series, fearful of injuries that could derail the regular season. Which got me to thinking as the 49ers steamrolled through Denver’s backups in the second half.  Who can the Broncos least afford to get injured this season? Joe Flacco... Read More

Broncos vs Raiders: It Could Be All We Need to See

August 9th, 2019

After a 6-10 season, the Denver Broncos and John Elway knew they had to make some changes. The team said goodbye to Case Keenum, the coaching staff, Bradley Roby, Matt Paradis, and others. In came an entire new coaching staff, a high-priced secondary, and a Super Bowl winning quarterback in Joe Flacco. The question is whether all the movement will lead to victories, or do the Broncos revert to the same team (with another new quarterback) that has gone 20-28 since winning the Super Bowl back in 2015?

Throughout it all, I trusted the Broncos. My cup was half full, filled with the positive expectations of seasons to come. But I don’t see it.  I would love to believe that the issues of the last few seasons were primarily coaching and quarterback play, but that seems too simple.  That our... Read More

The Draft Was Going Perfect – Until We Ran Out of Lock

April 30th, 2019

When the Oakland Raiders decided to take a lower-graded defensive end with the fourth overall pick and the New York Giants surprised everyone by taking quarterback Daniel Jones at number six, John Elway’s draft board couldn’t have looked any better. Sitting at number ten, Elway could have chosen Devin Bush, an inside linebacker from Michigan, selected a top offensive lineman, or had his choice of any quarterback he wanted, but he didn’t.  Instead, Elway wisely traded the pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers, deciding to acquire more picks and more value to fill some glaring needs. The Broncos... Read More
