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?    Generally, one game does not a season make.  But in this case, with an opening-season... 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.

NOT EVERY DRAFT IS A GREAT ONE FOR QBs – The only two quarterbacks taken in the first round back in 2007 were JaMarcus Russell and Brady Quinn. EJ Manual was the lone QB selected in 2013, and the headliners of the 2014 draft were Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel. ... Read More

Reading the Tea Leaves

February 19th, 2019

Bronco Nation scratched their collaborative heads last week when it was reported that Denver had acquired quarterback Joe Flacco from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for a middle-round draft pick.  The signing of the 34-year-old, former Super Bowl MVP undoubtedly means the end of the Case Keenum experiment, but what does it say about the direction of the franchise? With playoff victories and veteran experience, Flacco looks to bring the leadership and maturity that the Broncos haven’t had since Peyton Manning.  But the reality is Flacco was benched in Baltimore for rookie Lamar Jackson, has... Read More
