» Peyton Manning's Legacy could be tarnished

Feb 13, 2016 - 1:45 PM - by Northman
Here come the pitch forks.

http://m.nydailynews.com/news/nation...0395?cid=bitly

Thirteen years ago, USA Today obtained 74 pages of explosive court documents on Peyton Manning, Archie Manning, the University of Tennessee, and Florida Southern College that revealed allegations of a sexual-assault scandal, cover up, and smear campaign of the victim that was so deep, so widespread and so ugly that it would've rocked the American sports world to its core. Yet USA Today never released those documents for reasons I can't explain.
Mel Antonen, now a baseball writer for Sports Illustrated, wrote about the documents for the paper on Nov. 3, 2003. Three days later, Christine Brennan, longtime sportswriter for USA Today wrote an op-ed about Peyton Manning and the documents entitled, “Do you really know your sports hero?” but the scandal pretty much died right there.
But as his career winds down, we're left to grapple with the reality that there is credible evidence that Peyton and the Manning family knowingly, willingly, wantonly ruined the good name and career of Dr. Jamie Naughright, a respected scholar, speaker, professor, and trainer of some of the best athletes in the world.

» What the Broncos are considering with Brock Osweiler, Malik Jackson, Danny Trevathan

Feb 13, 2016 - 1:15 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Broncos coach Gary Kubiak remains the only coach to boast offenses with the league's leading passer, rusher and receiver. He forged his NFL identity by exploiting mismatches through play action and misdirection.

This season he showed flexibility, constricting the offense's playbook to avoid compromising a historically great defense. It worked, if not for a few anxious moments as the Broncos managed 197 yards against the Carolina Panthers, the fewest for a Super Bowl champion.

"We can win in all kinds of ways," Kubiak told general manager John Elway on the podium after the game.

» Northman's 2016 Mock Draft

Feb 13, 2016 - 12:51 PM - by Northman
(Using the Fanspeak Simulator) (7 round Mock)

**This Mock does include the comp picks as well as trades**


38: R2P7
OT SHON COLEMAN
AUBURN



STRENGTHS

Very long and gets maximizing disruption from arm length. Above average play strength with powerful upper body. Extremely physical with backpack full of nasty with him. Drive blocker who uproots defenders and creates space. Latches onto defenders with big, strong hands. Gets chippy as run blocker and looks for aggressive finish. Pass sets are generally balanced with decent slide to the edge and ready hands. Has ability to redirect inside against stunts. Very heavy hands. Uses his punch as a measure of force and intimidation. Fires his hands from inside his frame and lands with proper placement. Able to play in space. Relatively smooth climbs to second level and mirrors oncoming traffic looking to engage. Has played on left and right side. Held his own against Myles Garrett from Texas A&M losing badly just once on inside spin move.


WEAKNESSES

Base will get too wide hindering balance. Leans into contact in pass sets and consistently plays with weight too far forward. Feet deaden when punching, opening door around the corner. Inconsistent footwork in general. Lunges at rushers trying to turn corner rather than sliding feet into position. Has habit of leading with head down and will miss run targets at times. Got

» THANK YOU Justin Houston

Feb 13, 2016 - 1:13 AM - by WARHORSE
I still hate the Cheevies of course, but it was SO to our advantage that Houston signed his deal with KC. Hes been substantially more productive in the sack market, and there are some arguing points for the Broncos.

I think Von gets a long term deal done sooner rather than later, simply because the groundwork has been done. Von will obviously get more, and he may even become the highest paid defensive player in numbers, but his contract will be formatted to cap advantage for the Broncos. Elway has been stellar in making sure our cap is sound.

OZ, imo should be franchised unless the Broncos think they can get a deal. Mostly because hes still largely unproven and another year will tell everyone more. But who knows how much they are really convinced hes the future vs speaking politically correct.

We get those two done soon, the rest will be smooth for the most part......but there will definitely be some missing guys from this years squad.


Any thoughts on who gets let go?

» NT 2016 Mock 4 Rd

Feb 12, 2016 - 3:04 PM - by NightTerror218
Is it too early, I am bored at work and why not.

Based on articles and grading this year is very deep on the DL. This will make replacing Malik easier.

Off season moves. I think Marshall, paradis, Antonio smith, mcmanus, nordoow, Todd davis, Fowler, Anderson, bush, Von and Oz are kept. Most RFA and ERFA will remain. Reduce Clady contract with a restructure. Bring back ware at reduced salary, due $11.3M aim for $9M. I would like Bruton back for a very team friendly deal.

I think travathan goes to bears or raiders. He will get paid well. I hope not but I think so. With Peyton Manning retiring that saves $21 M and dead money of $2.5M.

Free agency would be focused on our defensive FA. Free agent I would got with Forte as only offensive. He has been healthy and he is probably the best all around RB. Lamar miller is another RB option. Kuehn would be a nice FB from the packers. Look at G Mike Harris from viking.

Draft
Round 1- trade out and try to get a 3rd or 4th pick. Just like the Wolfe year.

Round 2A- Robert Nkemdiche DT OL Miss. I say this is a very targeted pick for a top talent that with issues. If he is taken off the board I am going with 1st round Taylor Decker OT or Sheldon Rankin DT. Rankin is under sized for DT but is fast off line and depends on speed. Would be a good replacement for Malik.

Round 2B- trade up using 5th round and snag Scooby Wright III, ILB AZ. This dude reminds me of Luke keuchly. He is always near the ball and a big play maker. He was injure this year and stock will fall but not to us and bottom of second. 2 years ago he was one of the best defensive players in college. If we do not trade out of first I would still trade up here. If he is gone I would take Von Bell S OSU, playmaker for good OSU defense. Lots of backup Safties could be lost in FA, Bruton and bolden.

Round 3 - London Turner OG South Carolina, need line help and... [Read More]

» Denver needs a QB...

Feb 12, 2016 - 2:58 PM - by artie_dale
Hey all, I wish I knew how to create a poll, but I do not so here is my question.

I think this was mentioned in another thread so I hope I bring a different context to it.

We know there are no guarantees for Brock Osweiller to return. The word is that he will likely be offered between $16-$19 million a year. Whether he deserves that much or not, I do not know.

The question was asked earlier, "What about RGIII". I was totally against it at the time, but in retrospect, after seeing how Brock did so-so in Kubes' offense, I wonder how well RGIII could do in this offense.

Considering all of RGIII's talents, I do believe that if there was a locker room that could correct RGIII's personality woes (kind of like Cam's, but not nearly as deviant & narcissistic (definitly narcissistic though)), I think it is our locker room. Especially with DeMarcus Ware sticking around.

So, my question is, who would thrive more in Kubes' offense that could very well lead us to another season of contention:

Brock Osweiller
or
Robert Griffin III

GO!

» What do the Broncos Need To Do To Establish a Dynasty?

Feb 12, 2016 - 2:41 PM - by Cugel
It's never too soon to talk about a Dynasty when you win the SB.

So, I hope this will be a topic that we can return to in the months to come.

One thing we all agree on after watching the game: DEFENSE wins championships, and great offense just does not.

As I noted in a different thread, since the 2000 season 12 teams have scored more than 500 points, but only 1 team (2009 Saints) win a SB. Those teams were 1-4 in SBs during that time. The Panthers were #16 all-time in season points scored.

This defense by contrast ranks among the greatest defenses of the SB era. To be considered a GREAT defense you have to win the SB and even dominate in winning it. The 2006 Bears team gave up fewer points than the Broncos, but lost the SB to the Colts. Nobody thinks of them as an "all-time great defense" after they gave up 29 points to Peyton Manning and the Colts.

So, holding an all-time great (top 16 all time) offense to 10 points while scoring 7 yourselves and forcing 4 turnovers - that puts the Broncos in the all-time great category. So, job #1 (after signing Osweiler) is keeping the defense together in FA. There will be many threads on that, so I won't comment here.

But, looking at the all-time great defenses that won championships we note that NONE of them ever won more than 1 SB.

The 1986 Bears had a statistically better defense than the '85 team, but losing DC Buddy Ryan and locker room dissension cost them a repeat title and they lost to the Giants in the NFC divisional playoffs.

The 1991 Giants with Lawrence Taylor won the SB with Joe Pasarchik as their QB (Phil Simms was injured), but they never went back.

The 2001 Ravens still had a great defense, but lost in the divisional round to the Steelers and never returned to the SB until they changed almost their entire team (except Ray Lewis), including the coaches.

The 2003... [Read More]

» MATT Forte Needs to Come to Denver

Feb 12, 2016 - 1:52 PM - by WARHORSE
6'2" and a beast.

Dont know why Chicago is cutting him. The last 5 games of the season the man averaged 4.6 ypc! Tag that with 18 receptions for over 150. The man WAS their offense!

Please come to Denver to get a ring next year.

» If Robert Nkemdiche Falls to #31....

Feb 12, 2016 - 12:41 PM - by OrangeHoof
...do we take him? He's an unquestioned Top 5 talent but with some serious red flags about anger issues. I don't know if he really compares to NDonkeyKong Suhme but the Ole Miss DT is highly disruptive and would give opponent o-lines one more thing to fear coming at their QBs.

With the last pick in the first round, (remember, *NE forfeited theirs in Deflategate) one could say the Broncos are only risking the equivalent of a second rounder and the reward could be very sweet.

Dane Brugler's mock at CBS Sports.com has us taking Nkemdiche so the thought isn't preposterous although you'd expect teams like the Raiders, Ravens and Steelers who love NFL "bad boys" might grab him first.

» Brock Osweiler hopes 2015 play keeps him in Broncos' future plans

Feb 11, 2016 - 9:44 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Peering inches above the crowd on the field of Levi's Stadium Sunday night, Brock Osweiler and his 6-foot-8 frame watched from the side of the podium as the Broncos were handed the Lombardi Trophy after defeating the Panthers in Super Bowl 50. He watched as Von Miller was named MVP, and he watched as Peyton Manning told of his plans to celebrate with a lot of beer and a lot of hugs.

Osweiler watched from afar yet again, his season ending much like the way it started — and much the way his previous three seasons had unfolded.

But en route to the Broncos' Super Bowl victory, Osweiler wrote a résumé he's hoping will be enough to warrant an extended stay in Denver.

» Bob Kraft is a bigger douche than his fans

Feb 11, 2016 - 2:12 PM - by BroncoBuckeye73
I just read that Bob Kraft said that Archie Manning son's have 4 rings between them but my son has 4 by himself. I have to say that the classlessness of that organization truly comes from the top. Also wonder if son is the nickname he calls Tom on those cold New England nights.
