» Coordinators' Corner: Grinding in the ground game

Nov 28, 2014 - 9:51 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos returned to the field after Thanksgiving for practice on Friday, and they got some good news with Brandon Marshall being cleared to practice. With their last practice before heading to Kansas City in the books, the Broncos' coordinators talked to the media, focusing on the running game on either side.

Healthy Jamaal Charles to be a big factor

In the previous matchup between the Broncos and Chiefs, Kansas City lost star running back Jamaal Charles to an ankle sprain early in the game. Though initially marked as questionable to return, Charles would not return after five plays.

But since his return from the injury, he's averaged about 93 rushing yards per game at over five yards per carry, along with about 20 yards per game through the air.

» Broncos' Brandon Marshall cleared to play vs. Chiefs

Nov 28, 2014 - 3:55 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
While tight end Julius Thomas remained a spectator Friday, working through left ankle issues, the Broncos received a boost as Brandon Marshall was cleared to participate by an independent doctor.

The linebacker began the concussion protocol last Sunday, and gradually eased back into activity. He is expected to start Sunday at Kansas City, a huge lift given his performance this season and the inexperienced reserves behind him on the depth chart.

Marshall leads the Broncos with 94 tackles in 11 games, incuding 10 starts. He also wears the audio helmet, communicating with the coaches and relaying the defensive signals. He was hurt in the fourth quarter against the Dolphins, leaving the Broncos leaning heavily on rookie Lamin Barrow, who participated in a season-high 21 plays.

» Ware surprises fan in the military

Nov 27, 2014 - 10:30 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
LAKEWOOD, Colo. — Marine Sgt. Edward Welsh could find the right words. He almost couldn't find any words at all, but "I don't know what to say" tumbled out of his mouth as he searched for something—anything—to put his thoughts the best way he could after DeMarcus Ware shocked him with an unnanounced visit during his day off from work.

"Sometimes you don't need words," Ware replied.

Ware, who has family members in the military and at one time considered joining the military, decided to take a trip to Sgt. Welsh's house as part of the Salute to Service month from USAA, the official military appreciation sponsor of the Broncos.

"I've been fortunate enough to have some family members in the military and I know how important it is to sometimes just set time aside and just show that you really care," Ware said.

» Injured Brandon Marshall, Aqib Talib, Kayvon Webster not practicing; Julius Thomas remains limited

Nov 26, 2014 - 3:33 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The Broncos enter their biggest division road game of the season with concerns extending beyond the venue. Denver, like most teams this time of season, is battling injuries at critical positions.

Linebacker Brandon Marshall (concussion) and cornerbacks Aqib Talib (hamstring) and Kayvon Webster (dislocated shoulder) did not practice during the period open to reporters on Wednesday. The Broncos remain optimistic that Marshall will pass the league-mandated concussion protocol and be available to start Sunday against the Chiefs. Talib participated in only 17 plays in the win over the Dolphins as he tried to work through the leg issue.

He is expected to update his condition Wednesday. Webster entered as his backup and was hurt in the fourth quarter. He is less likely to play, leaving Omar Bolden possibly seeing time in nickel packages. From a matchup standpoint, the Broncos could catch a break if compromised in the secondary. The Chiefs lean heavily on the run, and no Kansas City receiver owns a touchdown reception. Tight end Travis Kelce leads Kansas City with four receiving scores.

» Tennessee Titans release veteran Shaun Phillips

Nov 25, 2014 - 6:24 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Shaun Phillips was the leading pass rusher on a Broncos team that made the Super Bowl last season. Now he's looking for a job.
AND

It wouldn't be a surprise to see a contender give Phillips a shot as a situational pass-rusher off the bench, possibly even the Broncos.

» Denver Tradition re-emerges

Nov 25, 2014 - 3:55 PM - by Spiritguy
Denver's "Barrel Man" has a resurgence as his sun suits up for the Miami game. Wonder if he'll continue to show up with the barrel or if it's a one time thing. Some good pics and more of the story at the link. Wonder if this had any effect on the outcome of the game?

I wanted to share this storied Bronco's tradition here with you guys, in case it wasn't caught on the news, as the Barrel Man's memory still looms large in our Bronco's community.

We were tailgating this past Sunday and there was a lot of hub-bub around the truck next to us in the parking lot. I asked one of the guys what was going on and they told us that the Barrel Man's son was getting dressed!? What in the world we thought...surely this was a joke? I'm always skeptical of scammers chasing glory in today's celebrity driven days.

But the crew of 4-5 guys with him all looked like straight-shooters, and they started giving us back-stories on the Barrel Man and his son...this was no joke, it was a moment of history flashing in front of our eyes!

We talked to them for awhile, and apparently the Barrel Man told his son that he did *not* want his son going to every game like he did. I'm not sure the exact reasoning for that advice, but he did pass onto his son, a wish that his son suit up "one last time" in his honor.

» Behind The Numbers: Broncos offense shines vs. Dolphins

Nov 25, 2014 - 2:32 PM - by BSN Denver


By Colin Welsh

Broncos fans were breathing a little easier on Monday after Denver bounced back with the 39-36 win over the Dolphins that came after a horrible loss to the Rams the week before.

Even with the win there were still a lot of concerns among Broncos fans. The coverage was poor, Isaiah Burse, once again, was horrible, Brandon McManus was dreadful, and the pass rush wasn't there.

There were some good things from this week though. Of course, Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders did their part; nothing new there. CJ Anderson was absolutely amazing and Peyton Manning, after missing some big throws early in the game, finally pulled it together, and for the first time in a month didn't throw an interception.

Denver also had some injury concerns in this game. The Broncos with an already thin linebacking corps, lost Brandon Marshall with a concussion in the fourth quarter, and he is currently going through the league's concussion protocol. Starting Corner Aqib Talib went down with a hamstring injury in the first half, and did not return to the game, his status for Sunday is questionable. Corner Kayvon Webster was also seen with a sling on his arm following the game.

The defense wasn’t very good this week and Chris Harris Jr. had his......................

» Offensive strategy against Kansas City

Nov 24, 2014 - 11:45 PM - by MOtorboat
I know everyone has fallen in love with the running game this week, and especially after the poor rushing performance at St. Louis, but I think Denver needs to utterly reverse strategy against Kansas City.

Kansas City's offense is built to get a lead and maintain it, not to come from behind. I think Denver needs to come out firing in three- and four-wide sets and blitz the Kansas City defense through the air to try to get an early lead. Denver needs to set a completely different tone against Kansas City. One that has worked the past few years against the Chiefs defense too. I have confidence in Manning's and the offensive line's ability to not allow Houston and Hali to get to Manning that I think this strategy would be the best way to handle this game.

Sure, keep the running game in mind, and even run the six offensive line set later in the game, when you have a lead. Early, Denver should come out firing.

» Oklahoma Man Attends First Broncos Game With Assist From … Raiders Fan?

Nov 24, 2014 - 8:42 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
DENVER (CBS4) – When Denver came back and won Sunday’s game against the Miami, there might not have been a happier fan in the stands than Shaun Duff.

Duff is a 26-year-old Broncos fan with Down syndrome, and he was attending his first game. He and his mother live in Oklahoma, and his long trip to Denver and tickets for the big game were made possible through donations to a GoFundMe account.

And the man behind the effort to get Duff there? It was none other than Dan Schneider, a lifelong Raiders fan.

Wait, what?

» Brandon Marshall into post-concussion protocol; Talib, Webster day-to-day

Nov 24, 2014 - 6:25 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Linebacker Brandon Marshall will go through the league-mandated post-concussion protocol, while cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Kayvon Webster are "day-to-day" with hamstring and shoulder injuries, respectively, Head Coach John Fox said at his press conference Monday.

Marshall was injured on a collision with Miami's Dion Sims after T.J. Ward's fourth-quarter interception. must pass through the league-mandated post-concussion protocol, which includes examinations with an independent neurologist, before he can return.

His concussion could further deplete a position group that lost Danny Trevathan to a second leg injury this season in Week 6, and saw Nate Irving succumb to a knee injury four weeks later. If Marshall can't go, the Broncos are left with young, relatively untested options -- and the potential of expanding T.J. Ward's responsibilities in the box.

» Jay Feely to visit Broncos for kicking audition Tuesday

Nov 24, 2014 - 4:10 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The Broncos are bringing in Jay Feely for a workout Tuesday, according to two NFL sources.

It's hardly a surprise given the inconsistency of Broncos first-year kicker Brandon McManus. With the Broncos on the short list of Super Bowl contenders, they could use a kicker with experience in crunch time.

McManus missed a 33-yard field-goal attempt Sunday in the Broncos' 39-36 victory against Miami and he ranks 31st among the 31 kickers ranked with a 69.2 field-goal percentage (nine-of-13).

Feely, 38, has kicked in 13 NFL seasons for five teams, most recently last season with the Arizona Cardinals.

The Broncos also will work out a second veteran kicker. Among the veterans available are Alex Henery, Garrett Hartley, Connor Barth, John Potter and Nate Kaeding.

» Will PFM allow this team to be balanced through the rest of this season?

Nov 24, 2014 - 11:50 AM - by MHCBill
What we witnessed yesterday imo was a collective decision to run the ball at all costs, even while trailing for most of the game. As the team fell behind multiple times by double-digits they continued to stick to the game-plan... run, run, run. Of course, one aspect that makes that commitment easier is being successful, but I would argue that unless you are down by 3 scores in the 2nd half this offense can be seriously scary if we continue to commit to the run, whether we are as successful as yesterday or not.

Elway knew in the twilight of his career that having a ground game enabled him to be his best. Will PFM allow that to happen too?
