» NFL.com predicts 5 teams that wont make the playoffs this year. Broncos one of them.

5. Denver Broncos: Denver's fortunes hinge entirely on what version of Peyton Manning we get come September. There's also the question of how he fits into Gary Kubiak's boot-heavy scheme minus pass-catching tight end Julius Thomas. While we don't expect the Broncos to force Manning into an attack that doesn't make the most of his gifts, changing up the regime midway through Peyton's Super Bowl-or-bust run in Denver was risky. It's a hunch, but the Broncos feel snakebit.

Wade Phillips:

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 3m3 minutes ago

Wade Phillips, on scheming for talent: "I can think of a lot of defenses. But it's (about) what our players do best."

Nicki Jhabvala ‏@NickiJhabvala 3m3 minutes ago

Wade Phillips on @Millerlite40: "We're gonna let him rush."

Troy Renck ‏@TroyRenck 2m2 minutes ago

Wade Phillips on Von "We are going to let him rush... You'd think he'd be WIL backer.. But we can use him as SAM.. He can rush from there."

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 2m2 minutes ago

Wade Phillips says that Shane Ray is getting "real good" at the classroom part of it as he recovers.

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 1m1 minute ago

Wade Phillips says the ILBs "are coming along well." Lots of competition behind Marshall/Trevathan.

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 50s50 seconds ago

Wade Phillips said he's used 3 edge-rushing OLBs on third downs before (in San Diego), could do the same here w/ Ware, Miller and Ray.

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 17s17 seconds ago

Wade Phillips says that Sylvester Williams has lined up at nose tackle, but he's alternated others there, incl. Malik Jackson & Vance Walker

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 2m2 minutes ago

Darian Stewart has been working as the first-team free safety during OTAs, Wade Phillips says.

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 1m1 minute ago

Wade Phillips says there will be a package for Bradley Roby at safety that they work in during the next 2 weeks.

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 1m1 minute ago

However, Roby had a good day at CB today, Phillips said. Talib got a breather, Roby was with the 1s, and got an INT, Phillips said.

» Strange Feeling about this offseason and upcoming season...

May 29, 2015 - 8:10 AM - by Traveler
Am I the only one who feels this way? There just seems to be something amiss about this offseason and I can't figure out what it is.

Let's recap:

1. There was the parting of the ways from Fox and his staff, with Fox and JDR seemingly checking out before the playoff game against the Colts.

2. The hiring of Kubiak and company in what seems to be a yearning for past glory days.

3. The strange Manning retirement/paycut saga.

4. The decision (justifiable) to let 5 starters walk in FA, mitigated by our salary cap restrictions.

5. The somewhat puzzling lack of emphasis on addressing the OL issues. Most notably, their belief the ZBS allows them to be successful with lesser talented offensive linemen. Trading for a second rate Center and signing bargain basement players like Shelly Smith, Ryan Harris, and the like doesn't inspire much confidence. Just goes to show they really don't believe in the players already on the roster (Paradis, Schoefield, Garland) like they stated earlier.

6. Their penchant for drafting players dealing with injuries or having a history of injuries.

7. Two major season ending injuries to players this early in the offseason.


I hate this gut feeling I have and my hope is the team has enough talent to still be successful, but I shake the feeling Denver will be selecting in the top 5-10 of next years draft.

Thoughts?

» Kubiak / Dennsion presser at OTA's

May 28, 2015 - 2:35 PM - by VonDoom
Figured I'd start a separate thread for this so it doesn't get swallowed in the Clady thread:

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 12m12 minutes ago

Kubiak: Clady was setting up to pass block and "felt his knee buckle." Played another snap, said his knee was sore.

Nicki Jhabvala ‏@NickiJhabvala 12m12 minutes ago

Kubiak: "We really weren't that worried last night. ... Unfortunately we got some horrible news."

Nicki Jhabvala ‏@NickiJhabvala 12m12 minutes ago

Kubiak: "I just feel bad for Ryan. He's worked really hard."

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 13m13 minutes ago

Kubiak: Team learned of the torn ACL today after MRI. "There will be no decisions" on what's next today.

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 12m12 minutes ago

Kubiak said there's no immediate decision as to whether he is officially out for the season. Will know more in 8-10 days.

Nicki Jhabvala ‏@NickiJhabvala 13m13 minutes ago

Kubiak: "Ryan's not only a veteran on this team, he's a leader too."

Nicki Jhabvala ‏@NickiJhabvala 12m12 minutes ago

Kubiak: "Up front we have some young guys who are going to have to accelerate the process here."

Nicki Jhabvala ‏@NickiJhabvala 11m11 minutes ago

Kubiak: "I think the thought is to leave Chris (Clark) on the right side. We practiced Ty (Sambrailo) on the left."

Lindsay Jones ‏@bylindsayhjones 12m12 minutes ago

Rookie Ty Sambrailo practiced at left tackle today. Plan is to leave Chris Clark at RT. Michael Schoefield in mix too for LT.

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 11m11 minutes ago

Kubiak on Ty Sambrailo: "He's not a rookie anymore. As of today he's about a four-year... [Read More]

» Emmanuel Sanders says passing numbers will decline.

May 28, 2015 - 5:03 AM - by DenBronx
Well, this was my fear. You guys asked for this system. I think all it's going to do is slow Manning down and get in the way. Hope I'm wrong but...



Emmanuel Sanders says the Broncos’ passing numbers will decline

Posted by Michael David Smith on May 28, 2015, 5:56 AM EDT

Broncos receiver*Emmanuel Sanders*says Denver won’t have the same kind of passing offense it has had the last three seasons. And not because*Peyton Manning*is getting old.

Last year Sanders caught 101 passes for 1,404 yards as the Broncos’ No. 2 receiver, while No. 1 receiverDemaryius Thomas*had 111 catches for 1,619 yards. Sanders says new coach Gary Kubiak will run a slower, ball-control style of offense in 2015, and as a result those numbers will decline.

» Prepped for Wednesday OTA start

May 26, 2015 - 7:08 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – After months of workouts and training, the Denver Broncos will don helmets for the first time in the offseason and return to the practice field for the start of its organized team activities on Wednesday.

Phase three of the Broncos’ offseason schedule OTAs will run until Friday, May 29. The team will then break for the weekend and return to Dove Valley for Monday and Tuesday training.

The first session of OTAs marks the first time the Broncos defense and offense will line up in head-to-head drills under the instruction of first-year head coach Gary Kubiak. In addition to a collection of new coaches, Denver will also usher in its 2015 draft class led by first-round pick Shane Ray. Wednesday’s practice is set to be Ray’s first outing as a Bronco after suffering a foot injury in his collegiate finale.

» Tevrin Brandon hit by car, still on schedule to practice next week

May 25, 2015 - 2:01 PM - by Zweems56
So, not sure if anyone saw the news yet or not, but I've got a strange story.

Dude we signed to a futures contract got hit by a car Sunday morning I believe. Some of you know I'm from NJ. I met a guy Sunday (girlfriend's cousin's boyfriend) at my girlfriend's graduation party who played with Tevrin Brandon at Monmouth and they're pretty good friends. Said he got hit by a hit and run suspected DUI and sent a snapchat of him in a neck brace on Sunday. Apparently he's all good though and is going to practice later this week. Troy Renck just posted this on twitter a bit ago.

Edit: Changed day he got hit. I heard Sunday night and assumed it happened the day before. Apparently early Sunday morning.

» Derek Wolfe hopes new season brings back old form

May 25, 2015 - 1:19 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- When the Denver Broncos watched the list of players on injured reserve grow in 2013, it included defensive regulars like linebacker Von Miller, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. and defensive end Derek Wolfe.

Miller bounced back during the 2014 season with 14 sacks and was named to the Pro Bowl. Harris Jr. completed one of the most remarkable recoveries in league history going from ACL surgery to his first game in seven months on his way to his first Pro Bowl appearance.

Wolfe's recovery from a frightening seizure on the team bus, however, has taken a little longer.

Wolfe said he felt "healthy" last season, but he didn't feel like the player he had been before his incident; that there was just something missing from his game.

» Versatility the key for Vance Walker and the D-line

May 23, 2015 - 9:55 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- If you want to play on Bill Kollar's defensive line, you can't do just one thing. That's why free-agent pickup Vance Walker might be an ideal fit for the rotation up front.

From Georgia Tech to Atlanta to Oakland to Kansas City, Walker has been a chameleon, remaking himself to fit the scheme and the role his coaches wanted him to play. That has allowed him to put six NFL seasons under his belt and ensured that he sat on the market just six days after the Chiefs released him in March.

Defensive linemen like Walker might not stay with one team -- just like they don't stay in one spot along the line. But they do have value. Walker began building up his reputation immediately after going from Georgia Tech to the nearby Falcons.

I knew this offseason was too quiet.


Denver Broncos defensive end*Antonio Smith*-- a former Pro Bowler -- is being investigated for alleged child abuse in Texas ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We spoke with the Fort Bend County District Attorney, John Healey, who confirms the child abuse division is handling the case against Smith -- though, so far, no charges have been filed.*

Sources connected to the case tell us ... the accuser claims there are multiple incidents dating back to 2010.
