One of the difficulties of trying to write a weekly Colorado sports article is focusing on the biggest story of the week, and timing it within the deadline provided.  Follow that up with the challenge of informing and entertaining the reader in 600 words or less, and the problem becomes compounded.  Within the last ten days the Colorado Rockies had a playoff series, the Denver Broncos played twice, the CU Buffs traveled to USC, the Colorado Avalanche were five games into the start of the hockey season, while the Denver Nuggets were just hours from their NBA opener. And that’s just Colorado! ... Read More

Aware that this Colorado Buffalo squad had lost as many as nine players to the NFL draft, including their quarterback and a majority of their defensive backfield, and the fact that the... 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
