» Two Broncos in PFF's Top 10 of 2014

May 19, 2015 - 3:35 PM - by VonDoom
If you care about such things, PFF completed their top 101 players of 2014 today with numbers 10-1. I haven't followed most of the others, but I thought it might interest some of you to see that two Broncos made their top 10 - Von Miller at #10 and Chris Harris at #4 (JJ Watt was, once again, number one):

10. Von Miller, ED, Denver Broncos (68th)

Just another season of excellence as we have come to expect from Miller. Back on a full 16-game schedule, Miller recorded 74 total pressures, the second-best season of his short career in that regard. More than just a pure pass rusher, Miller continues to put his immense physical talents to good use in run defense, earning a grade above +20.0 in that area for the fourth straight season.

Best Performance: Week 10, DEN@OAK, +7.9

Key Stat: Miller graded positively as a pass rusher in all bar two games this season, consecutive outings against San Diego and Cincinnati.
4. Chris Harris Jr, CB, Denver Broncos (64th)

Coming so quickly off the back of a torn ACL, Harris’ season was scarcely believable. A positive grade in every single game, a season passer rating allowed below 50, no touchdowns allowed and less than 400 yards conceded on more than 700 coverage snaps. Throw in that he covered the slot for more than 250 snaps and Harris’ season is all the more remarkable.

Best Performance: Week 5, ARZ@DEN, +4.1

Key Stat: Harris has earned a positive coverage grade in each of his last 20 starts

» Kapri Bibbs and Shaquil Barrett Expect a Breakout Season

May 18, 2015 - 2:23 PM - by Ziggy
ENGLEWOOD – Kapri Bibbs and Shaquil Barrett spent a combined six weeks on the Denver Broncos active roster last season. They never saw the field.

For their contributions, the rookie duo out of CSU was awarded three-year contracts that offer zero job security. As undrafted free agents, if the Broncos want fresh meat on their practice squad, they can cut whomever they need. That's life for low-profile NFL players. The pay checks will clear if you continue to out-perform at least one player in your position group. The moment you don't is the moment you become irrelevant.

Bibbs, a running back, and Barrett, an outside linebacker, were never on the verge of being released last season with all of the injuries Denver endured at their positions. But 2014-15 is behind them. So is another draft class and batch of college free agents. They're not the shiny new toys the Broncos acquired for next-to-nothing anymore.

"Honestly, I only watched the first round of the draft because I think the first round is fun," Bibbs said. "Other than that, I really didn't pay attention. I didn't care about the other stuff. I can only control what I can control, and that's how I play. I really didn't care who they drafted."

Added Bibbs: "I definitely think that this is the year that I get my shot. I hope they give me my shot, because that's all you can really ask for as a player. I know that when that happens, I'll do my best and nothing but good things will happen. ... Last year, I kind of marked it off as my redshirt year, kind of like I was in college. I've been here for a year, I've gotten to know my running backs coach (Eric Studesville), I know what he expects out of me."

» Lorenzo Doss signs with Broncos

May 15, 2015 - 3:19 PM - by Northman
Fifth round pick signed and delivered.

http://www.denverbroncos.com/news-an...7-7aee7356c8af

The fifth-round pick became the Broncos' third 2015 draftee to sign his deal.



Cornerback Lorenzo Doss signed his first NFL contract Thursday, joining nose tackle Darius Kilgo and center/guard Max Garcia as 2015 Broncos draft picks to sign their deals.
Doss, a fifth-round pick from Tulane, hopes to replicate the ball-hawking success he had with the Green Wave, for which he intercepted 15 passes over the last three years.
The 21-year-old cornerback made his on-field debut at last weekend's rookie camp

» Broncos' oldest rookie, seven years from his last game, gets chance

May 13, 2015 - 8:22 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- He's a 28-year-old British citizen, a native of Bermuda, who has painstakingly kept a football dream alive.

He's worked 60-hour weeks to pay his bills, worked out in the beams of car headlights and put up videos of himself kicking on YouTube to attract the NFL’s attention.

But here is Karl Schmitz, the Denver Broncos' oldest rookie, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound package of hope, confidence and pragmatism. Schmitz wants to be an NFL kicker, and seven years after his last college football game, the Broncos are giving him a chance.

» Pat Bowlen elected into Ring of Fame

May 13, 2015 - 1:41 PM - by VonDoom
Team owner Pat Bowlen has been elected into the Broncos' Ring of Fame this year as the 28th member of the group, the team announced on Wednesday following the club's annual selection committee meeting. His addition will be made official at halftime during the Broncos' Week 8 game against the Packers on November 1.

With over three decades of NFL experience exemplifying a devotion to consistent and sustained success that has seen the Broncos rise in the NFL ranks as one of the league's top franchises, Mr. Bowlen has been a steady guide as his teams have won 61 percent of their regular-season games, earning 17 playoff trips and six Super Bowl appearances, including two Super Bowl victories.
This is a great idea.

With the culture Pat created, how he competes to be the best & the relationships he has w/players & fans, no one means more to the Broncos.

» Broncos' Rick Dennison called to coach

May 11, 2015 - 10:28 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Dennison builds remarkable résumé

The phone rang. It was Gary Kubiak.

"You ought to apply for a job here," Kubiak told good friend Rick Dennison. "It fits you."

The year was 1995. Kubiak had joined the Broncos' coaching staff as Mike Shanahan's offensive coordinator. A vacancy remained for an offensive quality control coach. It's a job that covers "anything no one else wants to do," Dennison said, smiling last week at the team's Dove Valley headquarters.
AND

Outside the Dove Valley headquarters, the perception exists that Kubiak will run the Broncos' offense. Inside the building, the reality offers a more detailed picture of an invaluable partnership. Dennison serves as Kubiak's football brother and eyes in the sky. Kubiak tells Dennison the final answer he desires. Dennison then creates the equation, filling in the variables. Dennison will sit in the press box on game days, providing a give-and-take through the headset to Kubiak.

" I can see quite a bit from there. It allows me to spread out, write my notes," Dennison said. "We jump back and forth. We are on the same page."

» Adam Gase calls CJ Anderson "chubby"

May 08, 2015 - 7:22 PM - by VonDoom
During his press conference Friday with the Chicago media, Gase was praising his new running back Matt Forte, who has the fitness and durability to play every down. Gase then compared Forte to Anderson.

"In Denver, C.J. would hate me for saying this, but he got tired and was a little chubby sometimes," Gase said. "I mean, he got worn down quick and then we had to rotate backs in last year."
I mean, come on, now. I can't wait till we play the Bears this year. CJ laughed it off, by the way
