How to Win the Office Pool – Fantasy Football 2019

August 30th, 2019

If you followed my advice last season, undoubtedly it was a stellar year.  It was close to perfection as my quarterback threw for miles, the tight end lit up the scoreboard, and no-names like the Chicago Bears Tarik Cohen and the Green Bay Packers Aaron Jones surprised all. The 2018 squad predictably survived a 2-2 start as they waited for Julian Edelman to come off a four-game suspension for steroids, selected a Zach Ertz early in the draft to pay dividends, and told you that Cooper Kupp would be something special. If you took my advice, you jogged to the Championship Game along with me.  It... Read More

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 New Look – I’m Not Drinking the Kool-Aid

June 4th, 2019

As a fan I spent many seasons in the South Stands cheering on the Denver Broncos.  Donning a tattered Steve Atwater and holding a local microbrew, I bled orange and blue.  Through the good years with John Elway, Peyton Manning, and Von Miller.  And the bad of Josh McDaniels, Rahim Moore, and Paxton Lynch. 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 Rebuild We Never Saw Coming

November 13th, 2018
The Denver Broncos rebuild

The word rebuild is a rarity in the Denver Bronco vernacular.  With more Super Bowls than losing seasons, the rebuilding process is saved for teams like the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, and San Francisco 49ers.  Teams that are rebuilding don’t go after top free agents, don’t draft Bradley Chubb over rookie quarterbacks, and they don’t have player contracts like Case Keenum, Emmanuel Sanders, or Von Miller.  John Elway doesn’t rebuild, he reloads.  A missed field goal here and a lucky break there, and Denver would be right in the thick of it, we rationalize.  Well, sorry Bronco... Read More

Hand Me My Orange Colored Glasses

October 23rd, 2018
Denver Broncos

Doubters may look at Denver’s 45-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals as a needed win over an awful team.  Rookie QB Josh Rosen threw two interceptions that went for scores, the Cardinals had five turnovers, and Arizona dropped to 1-6 in the standings. Sure, the Broncos three wins have come against teams that have a combined 5-14 record, but after a season full of frustration, here are six reasons to look at Denver’s first road win of the season with orange colored glasses. Von Miller – With just 1.5 sacks during Denver’s four-game losing streak, Miller called out Arizona and his own... Read More

Forget the Decision – Go Get Phillip Rivers

August 1st, 2017

While the Denver Broncos try and decide whether Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch should start at quarterback in 2017, the smart play is for John Elway to roll the dice again on a 35-year-old veteran to save the day. Long before Siemian and Lynch were in diapers and throwing tantrums, Phillip Rivers was in the NFL throwing touchdowns. With an elite defense and Super Bowl aspirations, Denver can’t afford growing pains. Here are five reasons that Phillip Rivers could transform the Broncos into a Super Bowl contender. 1) It takes about five years of experience to really excel at the quarterback position.... Read More
