Denver Broncos blog, news and rumors

It took decades to get Floyd Little in.  Years to get Shannon Sharpe in.  Will the players below ever get into the HOF? On Friday, the 17 finalists for the 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame class were announced.  Not among [...]

The Broncos now have four players in the HOF and that number will grow [...]

I enjoyed Woody Paige‘s Sherlock Holmes piece on the Broncos‘ gameplan, right up til the end.  Keep things simple on offense, but employ more Tim Tebow.  That is a mystery. Josh McDaniels‘ London approach: sleep on the plane. Mike Singletary‘s: enjoy the culture. Which approach was right? We won’t know until Sunday. Some background into [...]

Randy Gradishar‘s ticket into the Pro Football Hall of Fame became a lot harder to punch a few years ago, when the former Denver Broncos linebacker’s candidacy expired as a modern candidate and he was shuffled into the senior pool. Only two senior candidates are nominated each year. This year, Gradishar wasn’t one of them. [...]

Opposing offensive linemen could rarely block Randy Gradishar. No one could. The linebacker played before my time, but as I grow as a Broncos fan I find myself watching the team’s history more and more. The more I watch, and the more I learn, the more I see that the seven-time Pro Bowler was unstoppable. [...]
