Denver Broncos blog, news and rumors

Four years ago, after four up and down seasons with the Broncos, Jake Plummer was benched and succeeded by then-rookie quarterback Jay Cutler – despite the fact that Plummer had the team sitting at 7-4. Now in hindsight, the move by then-Head Coach Mike Shanahan to bench and ultimately trade Plummer has been ridiculed as one [...]

“The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it.” The situation the Broncos had in 2006 (with Jake Plummer the starter and Jay Cutler the promising rookie) is very different than the Broncos current situation (with Kyle Orton the starter, and Quinn and Tebow chomping at the bits to play). [...]

If the Broncos are to succeed this upcoming season many of their players are going to have to turn it up to eleven. A PSA for everyone before we begin.  No! Not Tim Tebow! Just stop it! Back to your regular scheduled broadcasting. 10. Ronald Fields & Jamal Williams They may be two different players but [...]

I know I’ve covered this very recently, but it doesn’t look like a story that’s going to go away. So, do I still think the Denver Broncos won’t be trading Kyle Orton? Yes. (Yes meaning I think that Orton will still be wearing a Broncos jersey in week one, just to clarify my awkward sentence). [...]

There’s something going on in Denver and it’s not what you think. Last offseason Josh McDaniels famously said that the Denver Broncos would do things on offense that had never been done before. A Brandon Marshall reception record is not necessarily what I think McDaniels was talking about though. I think that he was putting [...]

I’ve been splitting my time lately between monitoring everything Bronco-related and watching what Mike Shanahan is doing in Washington. I think it’s interesting that both teams have made QB moves this off-season. I know it’s hard to compare Brady Quinn coming to Denver with the bombshell of Donovan McNabb‘s inner-divisional move to the Redskins, but [...]

Dear Josh McDaniels, Remember that time when you sent that guy who appeared to be the future to the Windy City? Well whether or not it was a good deal remains to be seen. However, what is evident is that I lost out on two freaking $70 jerseys and a $15 “Got Cutler?” t-shirt. His ostracism riled up [...]

I’ve discussed the Broncos slowly simmering breakdown. The same breakdown that can be wholly connected to myself and my slowly simmering breakdown. Last week after the San Diego Chargers owned us, I finally reached my breaking point, something had to give. Now, anyone who knows me, is used to seeing me as a slightly chubbier [...]

November 19, 2006 is a day that has haunted the Broncos for three seasons. On that fateful night, the 7-2 defending AFC West champion Broncos hosted the 7-2 eventual AFC West champion Chargers at INVESCO Field at Mile High.  The Chargers notched a 35-27 comeback win, engineered by first-year-starting quarterback Philip Rivers, and gained a [...]

The last time the Denver Broncos were undefeated through four weeks of the season – 2003 – Sports Illustrated decided to honor their success by placing then-quarterback Jake Plummer on the October 6th edition’s cover. Those Broncos lost the next week in Kansas City and finished 6-6 down the stretch for a 10-6 record, Wild [...]
