Big Pete of the comments has a guest piece for your reading pleasure this morning. Thanks Pete for volunteering to do this! Let him know what you think in the comments! Since earlier in the week seemed to be “Nit-Pick Day”, here is a list of the things I nit-pick the Broncos about. #1. We [...]

Mark Kiszla, of the Denver Post, gets paid to provide in-your-face snap opinions that may or may not match both conventional wisdom or reality. Sometimes his opinions make a lot of sense, but sometimes it feels like his job is really just to be a jerk to draw eyeballs. As near as I can tell, [...]

A conglomeration of red and white jerseys wrestled with each other on the Georgia Dome turf, a football somewhere within. Three under-experienced, under-qualified, over-uniformed men sifted through the mass of Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos players, trying to determine who had possession of the ball. One replacement ref indicated the football belonged to Atlanta. Moments [...]

When Brian Dawkins retired the Denver Broncos knew they were going to have a hole to fill. Dawkins wasn’t elite as he once was, but was still good enough to start on most NFL teams. John Elway set out to find some veteran leadership to fill out the depth on that part of the roster [...]

The Denver Broncos were solid at corner last season, that is until teams spread them out and bombarded them with pass after pass. It was disgusting at times to watch and the 40+ point nightmares happened more than a few times. John Elway and John Fox set out to do everything they could to make [...]

The Denver Broncos really did all they could to shore up the depth at the linebacker position. The problem remains to be the long term options at middle linebacker, where top end players are at a premium and the gap between those few players and the rest is fairly noticeable. We fans just need to [...]

A position of terrible need last year has become a position of incredible depth. On paper, the Denver Broncos should continue their climb back to defensive respectability against opposing rushing attacks. The first team defense was stellar in the three preseason games and only faltered during the Seattle Seahawks game – but only partly. Ty [...]

If depth was a concern for the offensive line, it is exactly the opposite for the defensive line. It’s amazing how quickly things can change year to year. Remember when we all freaked out when the Denver Broncos didn’t pick any of those “first round” defensive tackles back in April? Well, judging by the final [...]

We’ll start with the starters at each position, since they remain unchanged from last year. Sadly, it also looks like the Denver Broncos were unable to improve their depth situation along the line. The health of the starters is going to be huge for the 2012 NFL Season and especially so for Peyton Manning. Ryan [...]

The tight end position was a position of emphasis this offseason for the Denver Broncos. I am excited to see how this all plays out, but the roll could be to push for more threats in the red zone – an area that was unkind to the Broncos until Tim Tebow took the reins of [...]
