» Jhabvala: Winner from Texans’ debacle vs. Patriots? John Elway

Sep 24, 2016 - 6:35 PM - by TXBRONC
Let’s review the numbers: 13 drives, six punts, two fumbles, one interception, $72 million.

Brock Osweiler, in the spotlight of Thursday Night Football, was exposed against the Patriots and their third-string quarterback, Jacoby Brissett. There was no Tom Brady. No Dont’a Hightower. No Jimmy Garoppolo, even. And Rob Gronkowski was targeted only once and had zero catches.

I thought this was quite funny.

» Shane Ray. "Ready to take it to a another level."

Sep 24, 2016 - 8:50 AM - by Broncoknight30
CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4) – On Sunday Shane Ray scored his first NFL touchdown with a 15-yard fumble return. On Monday he joined CBS4 Broncos analyst Mark Schlereth and CBS4 Sports Anchor Michael Spencer for Xfinity Monday Live.

“Out of the corner of my eye I see this burst of lightning come through and hit the quarterback,” Ray said, in reference to Von Miller who forced the fumble. “Naturally I just jumped back outside to see if I could get it (the football). I picked it up, and ran it in.

“I wasn’t going to waste any time.”

Sunday’s game against Indianapolis came at a cost. The Broncos lost DeMarcus Ware for 4-5 weeks after he fractured a bone in his forearm.

Ware will undergo surgery on Tuesday. His departure means that Ray will be called upon to play an even bigger role in the Broncos defense moving forward.

Certainly his time to shine, starting this week. Von will draw ALL of the attention and he will continue to, unless Ray is that dynamic rusher from the other side. He has certainly been decent. I do think he does need to take to that next level. I thought last year the defense did miss Ware and it reflected a little bit. Hopefully Ray does take it that level.

» Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders: Speaking out is what leaders do.

Sep 23, 2016 - 8:08 PM - by Az Snake
The Afternoon Drive with Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro discussed recent comments made by offensive players regarding the, well, lack of offensive points production by the Denver Broncos through two games.

“Some have tried to create controversy of the comments, but really this is what we should expect from leaders. It's their job to admit mistakes and talk about how to get better. In a few days, it will be time for them to back their words up with performance.

Former Broncos safety, Nick Ferguson, agrees and applauds the way both Sanders and Thomas handled things. We're just not used to the wide receivers being the voice of the offense.”

» Vikings sign former Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman

Sep 21, 2016 - 1:14 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- Ronnie Hillman admitted his last two preseason games were audition tapes. He faced a difficult challenge to beat out Kapri Bibbs given Hillman's lacking special teams resume. Hillman sees himself as a starting running back.

As of Wednesday, he might receive that opportunity again. Following a knee injury to Adrian Peterson, the Vikings signed Hillman.

Peterson told ESPN he suffered a torn meniscus in his knee in last Sunday's loss. He will undergo surgery which could sideline him for the bulk of the season. The Vikings moved quickly to sign Hillman, who had previously worked out for the San Diego Chargers after Danny Woodhead suffered a season-ending knee injury.

» Broncos’ Trevor Siemian on “Omaha,” being a 7th-round pick, more

Sep 21, 2016 - 1:02 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Peyton Manning doesn’t have a patent on the word “Omaha,” at least not yet, Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian said.

On “The Dan Patrick Show” on Monday, Siemian talked about his car, Manning’s trademark call from the line and being a seventh-round pick.

Here are some excerpts:

On saying “Omaha” in Sunday’s game against Indianapolis:
“It’s just part of our offense, it’s a hand-me-down from Peyton (Manning). I don’t think he has a patent on it yet, so we’re going to continue to use it.”

Welcome to the NFL moment:
“The first time in the cafeteria, Peyton came up to me and said, ‘Trevor, how are you doing?’ You know, introduced himself. I said, ‘Trevor Siemian, good to meet you, Peyton.’ And I don’t know if I was nervous my first day in the building or what not, and he says, ‘How’s Pat doing?’ And I’m going through my Rolodex in my head, ‘Pat? Who do I know that’s Pat that knows Peyton?’ And of course he’s talking about my college coach Pat FitzGerald. I don’t call him Pat. It’s coach Fitz to me.”

» Von Miller named AFC Defensive Player of the Week

Sep 21, 2016 - 9:29 AM - by VonDoom
DENVER — After a three-sack performance Sunday against Indianapolis, Von Miller was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week. This is his third conference recognition of his career and the first since Week 11 of the 2012 season. Miller is now tied with Broncos Ring of Fame linebacker Karl Mecklenburg for the most AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors in team history since the award was initiated by the NFL in 1984. It is also the fourth time a Broncos defender has earned this honor since the beginning of the 2015 season.

Miller was a game-changer in the Broncos 34-20 win against the Colts. The Super Bowl 50 MVP sealed the Broncos’ victory with a crucial strip sack of Andrew Luck with 1:51 remaining in the fourth quarter that was recovered by teammate Shane Ray for a touchdown. He tied a career high with three sacks for a loss of 20 yards, seven tackles, one pass defensed and one forced fumble, becoming just the fifth player in the last six seasons to achieve all of those totals in a single game. He’s the first to accomplish this feat since three-time Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt, who did this for the Texans on January 3 vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Miller’s three-sack performance Sunday led the NFL in Week 2, and it’s the most sacks in a single game so far this season. It also is Miller’s third three-sack performance in his career, and he is now tied with Trevor Pryce for the sixth-most career sacks (64) in Broncos history.

» Practice / press conference notes - week 3 (Bengals week)

Sep 20, 2016 - 7:04 PM - by VonDoom
Start with some roster news:

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Shiloh Keo will return to the Broncos' roster.

After releasing him at the end of his two-game suspension to open the regular season, the Broncos will bring back the veteran safety, providing additional depth at a position where rookies Justin Simmons and Will Parks handled the reserve work the last two weeks.

To make room for Keo, the Broncos waived nose tackle Kyle Peko.

Keo joined the Broncos last December and provided veteran depth during the Broncos' push to the postseason. He also played a vital role on special teams, serving as a fill-in punt returner and recovering the on-side kickoff that clinched the Broncos' AFC Championship Game win over the New England Patriots.

Peko was inactive for both of the Broncos' first two regular-season games after making the 53-man roster at the Sep. 3 deadline. The Oregon State product was the only undrafted rookie to make the roster out of camp after notching two tackles and playing 65 snaps during the preseason.

The 6-foot-1, 305-pounder was the only third-team defensive lineman on the Broncos' roster. He worked at all three spots along the defensive line during training camp and the preseason. His older brother, Domata, is a starting defensive tackle for the Bengals, who the Broncos face Sunday.

» Ware's Broken Arm Is a "Break" For Broncos

Sep 19, 2016 - 9:56 AM - by OrangeHoof
Nobody roots for injuries but a broken forearm to DeMarcus Ware is actually a good thing for Denver. No, really.

Ware has had a history of sitting out mideseason with back or leg injuries. Now, he gets to sit and heal a non-critical injury and be more rested and ready for the last month of the season and the playoffs.

In the meantime, the Broncos get to further develop Shane Ray and the rest of the edge rushers waiting their turn to shine so we'll be better off in 2017 after Ware is retired or released for cap reasons.

So, the end result is a healthier Ware for crunch time this season and a more experienced edge rusher for next season.

Enjoy your time off, D.

» The Good and the Bad: Week 2

Sep 18, 2016 - 6:46 PM - by BroncoWave
Good:

Von Miller- What a beast this guy is. Somehow, he seems even better than ever. Should be head and shoulders above everyone else in the DPOY race right now.

Talib- Yet another pick-6 in a clutch situation. He is hood.

Siemian- Another very solid game by the young QB. He had the bad pick, but was otherwise very solid.

CJ/Booker- Both were solid today. It's nice to have a somewhat effective rushing game again.

DT- Made some really big plays today. Stretching to get that first down late was huge.

Dak Pre...oops, sorry, wrong game. I got too hype!

Bad:

Defensive penalties. Seems like this is one every week, but we gave up way too many first downs on penalties.

Red zone offense. We are absolutely great between the 30s, but we really need to figure some stuff out when we get in close. We have left WAY too many points on the board through 2 games.

Can't really think of much else bad. We honestly dominated this game, just had a few fluky things that kept it closer than it should have been. Overall, very solid team win.

» An ocean apart: How two brothers found each other and rallied around Broncos football

Sep 17, 2016 - 4:19 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
DENVER -- Greg Price and Gerhard Schutzenhofer are rewarded with quite the view.

On the night of the Broncos’ opener, they sit next to each other at Sports Authority Field at Mile High and watch Denver fight back to win against the Panthers.

There's a lot to look out on – both seen and unseen.

Greg, a burly, lifelong Broncos fan who grew up in Denver, and Gerhard, a soft-spoken man from Austria, are an unusual pair. They met a year ago after a five-decade search tested them with tragedy and repaid them with joy.

The brothers couldn’t be kept apart.

On Sept. 2, 1946, Gerhard was born. Almost 70 years later, he would meet his brother for the first time.

Their father, James, was a member of the Army Air Forces and served overseas during World War II. In 1945, he was stationed at a base in Austria, where he met Gerhard’s mother. They had a child together, but the relationship wouldn’t last past the end of the war. James returned home and met Evelyn at Elitch Gardens. Together, they would have three kids, including Greg.

James never mentioned Gerhard.

» With C.J. Anderson and an improved front, Broncos offense plans to be “road graders, bulldozers”

Sep 17, 2016 - 4:12 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Sometime between training camp and the start of the regular season, when the Broncos were searching for a starting quarterback and an offensive identity, a couple of the offensive linemen had an idea about altering their approach.

“Our attitude changed. We wanted to be road graders, bulldozers,” left guard Max Garcia said. “That’s the mind-set we try to instill across the offensive line.”

Those are only words until they are confirmed on the field. The memories of the vast criticism some of them received throughout the 2015 season were still there. They believed they were better.

So in their first regular-season game, against a stout Carolina front seven, it wasn’t surprising to the Broncos’ offensive linemen that they won the battle at the line of scrimmage on numerous occasions, opening holes for running back C.J. Anderson and fullback Andy Janovich.

“The mind-set is just to kick the crap out of the guy in front of you,” Janovich said.

» Broncos release Shiloh Keo from NFL’s suspended list

Sep 17, 2016 - 3:37 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The Broncos released veteran safety Shiloh Keo from the suspended list, an NFL source confirmed, making him a free agent.

Keo, 28, joined the Broncos last December when their secondary was depleted with injuries. In four games last season, he recorded three tackles, two special-teams stops and one interception to help the Broncos earn a No. 1 playoff seed and a bye. In the AFC championship game and Super Bowl 50, Keo had three more defensive tackles.

Less than a week after the Super Bowl, however, Keo was arrested in Idaho on a charge of driving under the influence. According to Ada County, Idaho, court records, Keo pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge and was sentenced to one year probation and his license was suspended. He also was ordered to pay a fine, speak at eight high schools and follow all requirements of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.

Last month the NFL suspended Keo without pay for the first two games of the season for violating its substance-abuse policy. His release leaves rookie Will Parks as the No. 2 strong safety behind veteran T.J. Ward. Parks was selected in the sixth round (No. 219) of the 2016 draft out of Arizona.
