» Seahawks prepared for anger-fueled Broncos' best shot

Sep 19, 2014 - 8:10 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
RENTON, Wash. – The Denver Broncos have had 7½ months to stew over their Super Bowl XLVIII embarrassment, and the Seattle Seahawks are prepared for all that pent-up angst to come pouring out in Sunday's rematch at CenturyLink Field.

"Absolutely. You can't expect them to come in and just lay down," Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith told USA TODAY Sports on Friday. "They're out for a little bit of revenge, and they want to execute better than they did the last time. They don't want to be dominated in front of the entire world like they were before."

Smith returned an interception 69 yards for a touchdown, recovered a fumble and was named the MVP of Seattle's 43-8 romp back in February – a game in which the Broncos were favored, only to take a safety on their first play and watch all hell break loose from there.

» Julius Thomas's 3 - Keys To The Game!

Sep 19, 2014 - 6:03 PM - by Cugel
Heard this on ESPN Radio:

Julius Thomas has three keys for the game, and it sounds like he nails it totally:

#1. No turnovers. Broncos had 4 turnovers in the Super Bowl that turned the game into a rout. Nothing like that can happen if they are to have a chance this time.

#2. Get more time for Peyton. During the game Peyton was constantly harassed and hurried by just 4 Seattle DL. No blitzes. And Peyton never had time to throw deep on that defense.

#3. Keep an Even Keel. Don't get too high emotionally or too low too early in the game. Broncos came into the game and immediately got shocked by the fumbled snap. They never recovered emotionally and were never in the game. Keep it under control in the early going.

I have to agree with all of this as the keys. Sounds like the team has focused on some of the key short-comings in that game and are going to be ready!

» Trevathan listed as questionable for Seattle game

Sep 19, 2014 - 3:19 PM - by VonDoom
Hard to believe, but less than six weeks after he had his leg fractured, Danny Trevathan was back at practice on a limited basis this week, and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game. I'm thinking he won't play (I feel like it's a little quick to be in game shape, and we have the bye next week already) but it's impressive that he's even at this point.

http://www.denverbroncos.com/news-an...9-3640c0890ad7

But does that mean he could play in Seattle this Sunday?

"Oh, yeah, I view myself as definitely an option," the third-year weakside linebacker said. "If I need to play, I will. Right now, I'm questionable."

Head Coach John Fox said Trevathan had made "really good progress," and would make the trip to the Pacific Northwest.

The linebacker's final status will be determined Sunday, but he admitted that he's "not really putting a time (frame)" on his return to work.

"No doubt, I'd be ready to go," Trevathan added later. "But it's in (the team's) hands to make the final call. I'm questionable, so I'm going to take it one day (at a time) like I'm questionable."

» Memo sent Thursday from Commissioner Goodell to teams and NFL staff:

Sep 19, 2014 - 11:38 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
"Subject: Long-Term Partnerships and Initial Educational Efforts on Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault

In my letter of August 28, I said we would ensure that everyone in the NFL has knowledge of and access to resources – both through and independent of the clubs -- relating to issues of domestic violence and sexual assault. I also said that we recognize that these issues affect our entire society, and that we would work to make a genuine and positive difference in a broader context. Today, I write to update you on some significant steps we are taking as part of our long-term commitment to help people affected by domestic violence and sexual assault.

It was brought to our attention that recent events caused The National Domestic Violence Hotline to receive 84 percent more calls during the week of September 8 – 15. According to the organization, more than 50 percent of those calls went unanswered due to lack of staff. That must not continue.

» Broncos are not same team that lost Super Bowl XLVIII

Sep 18, 2014 - 1:33 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The Denver Broncos were embarrassed in Super Bowl XLVIII, so there aren't many folks giving them a chance to win in Seattle this week. But the Broncos have a strong argument to reconsider their chances: They aren't remotely the same team they were on that unseasonably warm New Jersey night in February.

Only three defensive starters (Sylvester Williams, Terrance Knighton and Nate Irving) from the Super Bowl remain, and Irving is playing another position. The offense is more stable, but the unit has three different starters (Montee Ball, Emmanuel Sanders and Ryan Clady), and two of its offensive linemen are changing positions.

Add it all up, and less than half of the Broncos' starting lineup from Super Bowl Sunday will be starting in Seattle at the same position. The team has key players back from injury like Clady, linebacker Von Miller, safety Rahim Moore and cornerback Chris Harris. The secondary was rebuilt with free-agent pickups Aqib Talib and safety T.J. Ward. DeMarcus Ware has added juice to the pass rush, and defensive end Derek Wolfe is now a starter.

» Peter King: 10 questions for Peyton Manning

Sep 18, 2014 - 9:14 AM - by VonDoom
Here's the other MMQB article today, an interview with #18 by Peter King. Some interesting stuff, as always with Peyton, and some funny stuff as well:

The MMQB: Maybe in your last NFL game, you should play another position—just for one snap. Peyton Manning at safety?

MANNING: I always say, ‘I’d like to go play safety.’ I mean, I would know what the quarterback is doing. The Ed Reed range though … I just don’t quite have it.
and

There’s some different laws out here in Colorado. Pizza business is pretty good out here, believe it or not, due to some recent law changes. So when you come to a different place, you’ve kind of got to learn everything that comes with it.

» Benoit: Will Different Broncos Lead to Different Result?

Sep 18, 2014 - 9:12 AM - by VonDoom
Two good Bronco-related articles at MMQB today. First is this one from Andy Benoit, previewing the game against the Seahawks:

It’s hard to get players downfield against press corners like Richard Sherman and Byron Maxwell, so offensive coordinator Adam Gase will have to design plays that get his guys a clean release off the line. For this, expect to see Thomas and Sanders often line up on the same side. And, expect the Broncos to set up a portion of their vertical routes by faking a wide receiver screen—likely to Thomas, which means Sanders is the man Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas must find.

» Seahawks' Richard Sherman ready for "totally different game" vs. Broncos

Sep 17, 2014 - 5:58 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
It's kind of funny, actually. That bit about Richard Sherman being "exposed" in the Seahawks' 30-21 loss to the Chargers on Sunday.

San Diego reciever Keenan Allen, who had 55 yards on five receptions in the victory, said afterward that Sherman is "just a normal guy."

"We can go at him," Allen said. "We took some shots at him. We are not going to shy away from him. He's not really a shutdown corner. We definitely wanted to come out and show we could go any way we wanted to and that we were in control of the game."

Some said Sherman was "exposed" in the game.

» Broncos Mailbag: Give in Denver's second-half defense triggers alarm

Sep 17, 2014 - 1:27 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
A lot of different questions/answers in this article, but I chose the following:
Hey, Mike. My understanding is that the turf at Mile High is subpar to say the least. I realize they used a new fiber-wound hybrid system, but apparently the system doesn't live up to the promise. What are the chances the Broncos simply own up to this and install an artificial field? OR, go back to regular sod, which can at least be easily replaced?
Mike - Why are there no longer any flyovers at the Bronco games? The paratrooper thing is cool, I guess, but nothing gets the juices flowing like a rumble in your chest from a good ol' flyover!

-- Manuel Garcia, Falcon

The U.S. military stopped doing public flyovers during the budget-cutting sequestration on March 1, 2013. Even though there is no more sequester, the flyovers have not yet been reinstated by the military.

The Broncos have a standing flyover request for each of their remaining home games, but the military has yet to grant approval.

This flyover ban applies to all NFL stadiums, not just Sports Authority Field.
