Denver Broncos blog, news and rumors

On a day when the stands at Sports Authority Field were filled with orange jerseys, it was the Blue Crush defense that turned heads—and frequently planted San Diego quarterback Philip River‘s head into the turf. The Broncos’ (7-3) defense, led by Defensive Player of the Year candidate Von Miller, sacked Rivers four times while forcing three fumbles and two interceptions. [...]

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 [...]

When veteran safety Jim Leonhard (5-8, 188 lbs.) arrived in Denver, his jersey number of choice—No. 36—was already taken.  With no complaints, Leonhard went with No. 45 as an alternative. A month after signing and three weeks after becoming healthy again, Leonhard survived roster cuts and is currently listed as the second free safety on [...]

Remind me to never get on Joe May‘s bad side.  Otherwise, I could end up looking like the Chiefs’ Tony Moeaki. Chiseled Broncos’ middle linebacker Joe Mays has a 250-pound frame and the reputation of being a “thumper,” entering his third season in Denver, and he has a message for the rest of the NFL. “We’re going [...]

You can be a Denver Broncos fan, and you can be a Florida Gators fan, but this is no hybrid. To be clear, I have nothing against fans of the Florida Gators and I’m sure there are legitimate Bronco fans out there that also happen to be Gator fans.  But the Florida fans that have [...]
