» Quote Forensics: Demaryius Thomas Will Be A Bronco

Jan 31, 2015 - 1:21 AM - by WARHORSE
Read an article in ESPN mag last year on Thomas. Outstanding artcle. In that article he said he would give Denver a home town discount and he wanted to be in Denver.
When asked about whether Peyton Manning was coming back, he said “I think he will.”

But Thomas added this: “I say that because I want him back, but I really don’t know.”

Sooooooooo......why would Demaryius want him back unless he was planning on being back himself?


See how I put the pieces of the puzzle together and learn that DT is going to be in Denver next year?

Quote forensics are amazing.

» Madden ultimate team

Jan 31, 2015 - 12:25 AM - by Pudge
When you play mut, you buy packs, and they come with cards. Sometimes you get players, other times you get cards. Basically you build your team with the cards. Right now I have cards for the super bowl. They raise some interesting questions.

Do you feel like there will be two 300 yard passers? If there is I get 75,000 coins. If not the card is of no value. I can trade or sell the card and be alright, but I don't get anything close 75,000. I personally don't feel either will pass got 300 yards.

Another is who commits the first penalty, if new England fuss I get 5000 coins, but I feel like Seattle commits an infraction on opening kick off lol.

Thoughts?

» Pot Roast- Re-Sign Him or Let Him Walk?

Jan 30, 2015 - 7:45 PM - by Ziggy
Wade's one gap version of the 3-4 calls for a smaller quicker nose tackle. Sylvester Williams fits the prototype, and the Broncos just used a first round pick on him 2 years ago. Is it time to see if we can get maximum return on our investment, and spend the money it would take to sign Pot Roast elsewhere? Or do we bring back the big fella and let Wade adapt the defense to him?

On one hand-
Knighton is 28 years old and playing the best ball of his career.
He eats up double teams as well as anyone in the league.
He moves well for a 350 pounder.

On the other hand-
He seems to disappear in the big games.
He's become more of a two down player.
He's probably going to command 7-8 million per year to retain.
He's made it very clear through his twitter that he'd be more than happy to play in Oakland.

What say you?

» Broncos' T.J. Ward determined to be big hit on huge stage, like Kam Chancellor

Jan 30, 2015 - 5:34 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
PHOENIX — Coffee in hand, Broncos strong safety T.J. Ward sipped from the cup, stared across the cafe and answered the question with steely-eyed focus. His expression and passion were typical, but for one exception.

He's attending the Super Bowl as a visitor, not as a player. Before making his way through the carwash of radio row Thursday, Ward disputed the notion that the window to win an NFL championship has closed on the Broncos' fingers, even if quarterback Peyton Manning returns to the team.

"One player doesn't make the team," Ward said. "You can have talent, but you need a team. And we have a team. We get along with each other. We hang out off the field. Besides the ability, we have smart players with great work ethic. Yeah, especially after how we finished, the goal is to win a championship. All of the free agents didn't sign one-year, this-is-the-only-year contracts. We are here, three, four, five years. As long as we are here, the goal is the same."

» Manning receives Bart Starr Award

Jan 30, 2015 - 3:05 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Phoenix – Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy reunited with Super Bowl XLI MVP Peyton Manning this morning to present Manning with one of the sport’s most meaningful honors, the Bart Starr Award.

The Denver Broncos quarterback was chosen by his National Football League (NFL) peers as this year’s winner based on his character and contributions on and off the field. Tony Dungy and Bart Starr Jr., awarded Manning with the Bart Starr Award trophy in front of an audience of 1,600 at what is widely considered one of the game’s premier events, the Super Bowl Breakfast (presented by Athletes in Action and the Super Service Challenge).

“I’ve always had the greatest admiration for Bart Starr because of his leadership, integrity and success as an NFL quarterback,” said Manning. “He’s a Hall of Fame player and, most importantly, a Hall of Fame person who has demonstrated a lifelong commitment to giving back. To be recognized with this prestigious honor named after Bart and voted on by my peers is very humbling.”

» Wade Phillips Explains His 3-4 Defense

Jan 29, 2015 - 5:58 PM - by Cugel
Some of you may have seen this video on Mile High Report, but it's worth promoting here because it's such an awesome video detailed explanation by Wade Phillips of his 3-4 techniques:



He explains that you coach the players differently based on what their skill set is. Every player at every position has his assignment, but they might line up differently or play differently depending on their abilities. For instance, a faster SSLB will line up a shade further outside the TE if he's a faster player, because he can get an angle to get round the TE and get to the QB in pass-defense, but a slower stronger guy might line up tighter on the TE because he doesn't have the same speed. That faster guy can recover quicker and get back on the TE even though he's out wider because of his speed so it allows him to take that wider angle.

Their assignments are the same but how they play can be totally different because you adjust the scheme to their particular strengths and weaknesses. I thought this was an excellent point.

Seeing this reminds me why Wade Phillips has been such a successful defensive coach, he coaches to his players, he doesn't try and force all his players into a mold. He says the essence of coaching is knowing the strengths and weaknesses of each player and coaching him accordingly.

» Peyton Manning really struggling with decision, says father Archie

Jan 29, 2015 - 5:29 PM - by Cugel
Well, this totally sucks. I thought Peyton coming back was a sure thing, but apparently he's struggling with the decision which may mean he's ready to hang it up:
First, the positives. Peyton Manning's leg is getting rest and getting better, Peyton's father and Pro Football Hall of Famer Archie Manning told Woody Paige and Les Shapiro on The Denver Post's Sports Show. He and Peyton like Gary Kubiak, and it doesn't sound like Peyton has any concern about returning under a new regime.

"I don't think that's a big consideration," said the elder Manning.

Now, the negatives - or more accurately, the unknowns. That all doesn't necessarily mean Peyton is coming back. According to Pops, he's still mulling his decision. One outlet even put it this way -
Derek Togerson @DerekNBCSD
Follow

Just talked to Archie Manning. Told us Peyton has not decided if he'll play or retire yet and is really struggling with the decision. #NBC7
Archie told another outlet, WEEI, that we can expect an answer sooner rather than later.

"I don't think he'll go a long time and take this thing to March, or anything like that," said Archie Manning. "He's got it on his mind, and I think he'll make a decision."

This is certainly the biggest blurb or nugget we've heard since Manning spoke himself about his uncertainty of coming back. Until this, everything we've heard

» Denver Broncos coaching renaissance is complete: The band is back together

Jan 29, 2015 - 5:06 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The Denver Broncos, despite having existed for only 55 years, find themselves in a renaissance period entering the 2015 season. What once was old is new again. The band is back together.

After John Elway hired Gary Kubiak to be Broncos head coach, the dominoes began falling, and now we have a reunion of just about every player and coach from the Broncos in the early 1990's as key decision-makers in this franchise. If you were a Broncos water boy in 1991, come on down; there's a spot on Elway's scouting staff for you.

To be honest, at first, I wasn't sold on the Broncos band reunion. I am not sure how a sudden resurgence of 1990s Broncos football would take in the 2010s. Sure, in many ways, that period is the golden age of this franchise. Two Super Bowls and a handful of Hall of Fame players serve as testament to that legacy. But the game has evolved. The zone blocking scheme the Broncos revolutionized reached its league-adoption apex less than a decade later. What once was new is old again.

But as I went about compiling this post and looking at the resumés of all of these reunited Broncos, my hesitance has turned to excitement. This is an impressive group of football minds who have each bled orange and blue at times during their respective careers, and there's something to be said for having employees who care deeply for your organization (and your owner Pat Bowlen).

» Chris Kuper

Jan 28, 2015 - 6:52 PM - by Spiritguy
I know Chris isn't a bronco anymore but didn't see a better place to put this. Kupes dad stopped by the OM This is a few snippets about Chris and his health from that thread. Thought some of you would like an update on him.

He's doing well, going to be a dad again which makes us happy. He is trying to decide what he's going to do when he grows up. I think he's weighing in at 275 which takes the heat off of that ankle. How are you doing?
Originally Posted by baja: What does Chris think about our last seasons O line play and line coaching?
You know, I would never ask him that question. He is still a Bronco and most of those guys are his friends. He loves Coach Fox and Mags and Coach Gase as well as his teammates. Keep your eyes open, you may see him on a sideline near you!
I've been lurking and reading. Chris misses all of the locker room fun but his ankle is pretty much destroyed. He lost some weight and that helps but that

» DeMarcus Ware finalist for new honor

Jan 28, 2015 - 5:42 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Jim Saccomano puts into perspective how important the NFL Sportsmanship Award -- for which DeMarcus Ware is a finalist -- is to the sport.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver Broncos Pro Bowl pass-rushing star DeMarcus Ware has won many accolades in his career, but he is a finalist for a new one this year.

The NFL Sportsmanship Award will be given Saturday night, and Ware is one of eight finalists.

Fittingly, the award, new this year, is named for Pro Football Hall of Famer Art Rooney.

Mr. Rooney, "The Chief," was a sportsman back in the day when that meant a truly diversified interest in sports, especially horse racing.
