Denver Broncos blog, news and rumors

Less than two years after Pat Bowlen fired Mike Shanahan as head coach of the Denver Broncos, his wonderboy replacement Josh McDaniels was shown the door. With the rumor that the organization has researched whether or not it can fire McDaniels with cause over Spygate II, you can almost hear Mr. Bowlen saying “And don’t [...]

The Denver Broncos are 3-6 and, miraculously, not dead in the division. Dead last, but not dead. Ok, perhaps miraculous is not the correct word.

It turns out that the Broncos’ playoff picture is more than a little bit crazy. Despite our rather anemic 8-7 record, we currently hold the 5th wild card seed. One would think that means that if we win next week, we’re in. One would be wrong. NFL tie-breaking rules can be rather complex when there [...]

On Tuesday evening, the BroncoTalk Alpha League conducted its LIVE draft! Only one player couldn’t make the entire draft, though a couple of players bounced around a bit and ended up with some auto picking. Nonetheless, the draft went off very well.

The rumor mill was churning back and forth on this one all afternoon yesterday about whether or not Dawkins actually signed. He signed this morning and the Broncos seem particularly pleased by this one. Press release after the jump.

Personally, I can’t see how we could possibly do better; the zone blocking scheme asks personnel [...]
