Broncos 31, Bucs 23 — you know what a victory means, fellas. Give out your BT Game Balls!

Von Miller and Mitch Unrein, two Defensive players score touchdowns! — Scott Rockhold

Demaryius Thomas! Dude went beastmode out there. — Dustin Gale

Von Miller and Peyton Manning get my balls (no homo).  That pick-six by Von was hella exciting, and Peyton for rallying in the third. — Jireh Rowden

Can’t forget Britton Colquit. Amazing job today. — Kyle Obergfell

The whole team! — Richard Larcom

We did something a little different this week, asking our Facebook fans to provide the Game Balls.  Unless it receives an overwhelmingly positive acceptance, this method will only be temporary.

    I’m pretty disappointed in BT. How does an overtly homophobic facebook post get accepted for the front page?

  • Jon Broncos Heath

    That’s overtly homophobic? Now I know.

  • Gary_in_SD

    Plain and simple, Peyton will be the league MVP this year!

  • dogheadbrew

    It’s hard to pass up the front runners for the MVP and DMVP, and the guy who hauled in two TDs. But I’m going with the youngster, who directly effected 12points worth of plays. Mr.Unrein

  • Jim_Jebow

    I agree, its a moronic statement. And where are all the other BT writers? Ian, Mr. East, Josh Temple, Monty? Why isn’t anyone writing except for Jon?

  • Mergrath

    I give my left (nut) ball to Trindon Holliday for giving us great field position all day! He looked decisive and if possible…he played faster!

  • TheTroglodyte

    Been wondering the same thing. Jon’s doing a great job but he’s been the lone show for awhile now.

  • Big_Pete

    Pete’s Game Balls:

    #1. Peyton Manning. I mean seriously, how good is this guy? Even when he’s having a bad day, he still passes for 3TDs and has complete control of the game. If we don’t go in an all out prevent offense in the 4th quarter, the score would have been completely lopsided with Manning probably throwing for 5 TDs.

    #2 Von Miller. Can you say Defensive Player of the Year? If you can’t, start practicing. Miller got yet another sack, another forced fumble, and an interception for a touchdown. It isn’t so much that Miller has stats, it’s that Miller gets his stats when the game is still up in the air. It seems like as the moment gets bigger, his play gets better. There is no other defensive player in the entire league as irreplaceable as Miller is to Denver.

    #3. Our Entire Secondary. They once again stepped up. What more can be said about them? Things started going so good that had Miller not intercepted that pass, Harris would have gotten it and scored. When our front 7 is playing as good as they are, our mega-talented secondary steps in and plays lights out.

    #4 Trindon Holliday. This guy is electric. Between signing Koppen and Holliday, John Elway should be the default GM/Exec of the year. How Houston let him go is beyond me. This guy is ridiculously good, and every time he touches the ball, you almost get the sense that he’s gonna take it to the house. He is an impactful player who is already affecting the way teams play us.

    #5. Demaryius Thomas. Another game, another 100 yards and a few TDs. Not only is he clutch, his first TD catch was ridiculous. We’re seeing a guy who started out as green as anybody in the league grow up before our eyes. Peyton Manning and Thomas are in my opinion, the best QB/WR combo currently in the NFL. Nobody can stop them, and nobody will.

    @TheTroglodyte and @Jim_Jebow:disqus,

    I believe the other guys are simply going through some busy times, as am I.

    I’ve just been able to find a few moments each day to post an update here and there.

  • Big_Pete

    What’s Jon want me to write about? I got LONG answers to short questions…. You tell me the song Jon, and I’ll dance to it. lol

  • TheTroglodyte


  • TheTroglodyte

    Well I, as I am sure many of the other readers thank you very much for keeping us going!

  • Jim_Jebow

    here here, great job Jon, Thanks for keeping us updated

  • Jim_Jebow

    You really should write for BT Pete, I mean your comments are longer than most posts here!

  • Jon Broncos Heath

    @Big_Pete:disqus Send Kyle ( an email. I agree that you would be a nice addition to the staff.

    Jim, for the most part, we tend to keep the posts short and sweet, as many readers appreciate the quick summary over a lengthy “this, that, and the other thing” article (for most cases).

    Lengthy reads are often appropriate, though, and I wish I could pump them out more often, but I simply haven’t had the time of late. Honestly, I would love another contributor to join the team.

  • Doom92

    Thats funny…

  • Doom92

    The reason Houston let Holiday get away is fumbles, he has “it” all when it comes to the return skills but as we saw in the first couple games he can loose the handle. The Coaches have worked well with him on it though and perhaps they’ve gotten him over it.

    As for Thomas and Peyton, I think they are really coming together and could become the best duo in the league but I don’t think they are quite there. You could have argued that for Peyton and Marvin and/or Peyton and Reggie, but I don’t think Demerius is quite at that level [Yet]. I think Koppen hands down is the best sign for this year.

    Very good post on the rest also…

  • Monty

    I miss you guys.

  • Monty

    I don’t interpret it that way either. We did not mean to offend.

  • Big_Pete

    Will do. I’ll try for shorter stuff for now. Thanks my man.

  • Jon Broncos Heath

    No, no, your comments and fantastic! And if you do join the team, don’t change a thing!

    The short and sweet is somewhat of our style, but it also because I never have enough time to write anything lengthy.

    But if you have the time, we can see you have the ability. Write on, my friend, right on!

  • Pete Baron

    Good, cause I just wrote something that I thought would be short, but is pretty long. haha. I’ll email to Kyle and see what he thinks. There will definitely be a “click here to read the rest” haha

  • Jon Broncos Heath

    Sounds fantastic.

  • AZDynamics

    Don’t you dare. About the time I discover you and thoroughly enjoy your post? No way!

  • AZDynamics

    Tough call on defense, but I have to agree with Cole Schultz of PFF ( in giving it to Chris Harris. While Champ had Vince Jackson locked down, Harris was all over, locking everyone else down.

    Maybe give Von and Harris each a half of a ball?

  • Jim_Jebow

    you doing ok monty, been worried about ya man

  • Pete Baron

    I wrote an article for here examining just that… the Manning to Thomas connection. Not sure if it’ll get published or not, but I gave it a whirl.
