» Broncos Get Leading Tackler Danny Trevathan Back

Sep 29, 2014 - 7:29 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – The Denver Broncos locker room was filled with more banter and bellows than usual Monday. Their early bye is over and Danny Trevathan is back.

The team’s leading tackler last season, Trevathan missed the first three games after fracturing his left leg just below his knee during an Aug. 12 practice at training camp.

He’s expected to make his 2014 debut Sunday when the Broncos (2-1) host the Arizona Cardinals (3-0).

“Man, we’re so happy to have him back,” linebacker Nate Irving said, raising his voice and enunciating each word so that Trevathan could hear his high praise two lockers away. “He’s the heartbeat of the defense, baby!”

» Broncos' offense not struggling as much as facing good competition

Sep 29, 2014 - 10:44 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Let's suppose Demaryius Thomas gets some stick to his buttery fingers.

Suppose, too, Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase de-emphasizes the rushing game and his unit regains rhythm through Peyton Manning's precision passing.

Even if all were clicking offensively, the Broncos still would not be likely to repeat their record-setting performance from 2013.

The biggest challenge in the Broncos' 2014 regular season has been a schedule shift in location. Instead of playing all those patsy defenses from last year's NFC East, the Broncos are taking on all those defensive powerhouses in the NFC West.

» Klis: Super advice for Denver Broncos: Throw the ball!

Sep 28, 2014 - 7:16 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Mike Trout is not asked to bunt. No coach would ever order LeBron James to shoot left-handed. Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly are not required to brawl.

So why is a team with Peyton Manning as its quarterback trying to run the ball?

Bullhorned suggestion to the Broncos: Put it up! Enough already, with a clump of Sports Authority Field at Mile High dust and second-and-12. The Broncos can't run the ball for the same reason a politician can't resist smearing an opponent during an election year: It's not who they are.

Manning doesn't take the snap from under center so the running back can get the handoff with two steps of momentum. He's primarily positioned in the shotgun from where the running back gets a standing start. The Broncos' offensive linemen aren't leaning 300-plus pounds of bloodstream into their three-point stances. They're usually sitting back on their haunches, a position of passivity not aggression.

» Broncos' Aqib Talib fined for throwing elbow vs. Seahawks

Sep 27, 2014 - 2:40 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib was fined $8,268 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness in last Sunday's game against the Seahawks in Seattle, according to ProFootballTalk.com.

The incident came late the fourth quarter, during a Seahawks drive on first-and-10. Talib went flying to the left after a pileup and dropped an elbow on a Seattle player. He was issued a 12-yard penalty on the play.

While on the Coors Light Aqib Talib Show on ESPN Radio earlier this past week, Talib denied throwing an elbow and hoped to avoid such a fine.

I usually hate early byes as a waste of the team's ONLY time off before the playoffs, a rest for guys not yet tired who'll sorely miss it in late October or early November when one guy's got a sprained this, another has a pulled that and EVERYONE has a bruised EVERYTHING. Not this year; too much crap happened at the end of preseason and start of the regular season. It's hard to list all of it, but I'll try:

Welkers concussion, followed by his drug suspension that went from PED to substance abuse to nothing once the NFLPA and owners agreed on new rules.
Harris and Millers torn ACLs preventing even practice till the end of preseason, leaving them out of game shape in a way visible when they needed to be spelled in the second half vs. KC and Indy.
Hillman and Websters mysterious Dallas adventure; no one seems to know what happened, but it was bad enough to keep them off the field the first week.
Trevathans fractured leg that's kept him from playing at all this regular season.
The juggled line; maybe all starters are the same, but two are in new spots, all have someone new beside them and Clady missed most of 2013.
Ware; he's a fine player, but it's his first year in Denver, where he was quoted in the season opener saying just walking up the stadium stairs left him out of breath (hopefully he was being facetious.)

That's, what, SEVEN obstacles and distractions hopefully behind us for good by next week? Some of it's improved already (e.g. I believe Miller and Harris played a full game @Seattle, Welker's suspension's over and Trevathan's practicing again) but some of it's lingering (most notably, the Swiss cheese run blocking.) I hate early byes because they're usually needed late but rarely early: We need this one NOW. It's a chance to get healthy and rest, reassess, regroup and rally to finish the toughest schedule I can recall in ~30 years watching the NFL.

I may sing a different tune when... [Read More]

» Chris Harris says he's the top corner in the NFL and explains why (Audio Included)

Sep 26, 2014 - 10:17 AM - by The Brandon Spano Network

By Brandon Spano

I've covered Chris about as closely as he's covered wide receivers across from him for the last four seasons. He comes on my show every other week and has been a mainstay on my program since he entered the league. I remember when he came in as an undrafted rookie, made the team, and ending up starting by mid-season. In week eight that year, he had 11 tackles and an interception out of the slot. I think we all knew at that point, that the Broncos had found a diamond in the rough.

For the last few years, he has graded out as the leagues best slot guy and has been so good in that role that people didn't really know just how good he was on the outside. Last year I called him the most underrated player in the NFL, along with Pete Prisco and a few others.

He's graded out as a top 10 corner by PFF the last two seasons but entered this season with some people doubting whether or not he would efficiently recover from an ACL tear in January. The results are in, folks. He's been exceptional.

He has not allowed a touchdown so far and he's only given up a total of 80 yards in three games with four pass breakups and an interception. But don't take my word for it; Chris Harris joined my show on Thursday and told me..............

» Eagles, 49ers, Patriots and Broncos each have glaring weakness

Sep 25, 2014 - 1:31 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
from article:

7) Denver Broncos' running game

With Knowshon Moreno no longer on the team, Denver can't run the football. The Broncos currently rank 28th in the league in rushing and have notched only one score on the ground.

I still believe this is the best team in the AFC, but establishing the run is a big part of the Broncos' upside. Montee Ball has to do a better job. That's the one "yeah, but" when assessing the Broncos' chances at landing another Super Bowl berth.

» Broncos Playing Scared?

Sep 24, 2014 - 8:39 PM - by spikerman
I've seen this theory thrown around a bit since the game. This guy brings up some good points. Personally, I thought the play calling pretty much sucked for about 55 minutes.

In every conceivable way, the Broncos offense is stacked, yet against Seattle, and on other occasions, the coaches go extremely conservative. Fox needs to change this.
If the Broncos had the same approach on offense that, say, the Bengals or Chargers or even the Falcons do, they would have beaten Seattle by two touchdowns Sunday. Instead, they lost 26-20 in overtime.
Consider this: On Denver's game-tying drive, the Broncos were able to move the ball easily against a brutal Seattle defense by testing that secondary. They threw short. They threw deep. Manning threw everywhere. There was no fear or hesitation. Seahawks players remarked after the game that on the drive, Denver used plays they hadn't seen on film.

» John Fox tweaks "stay out of the papers" message for Broncos' bye week

Sep 24, 2014 - 5:30 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Third-week byes are snow days after Christmas break — appreciated, but poorly timed. The Broncos, like most teams, prefer a breather in the middle of the season.

Nonetheless, it allows offensive lineman Louis Vasquez to receive extra rest for his back. Defensive back Quinton Carter was also held out from practice. Healing injuries is a theme.

And none of the Broncos tore a hamstring racing to the parking lots for upcoming flights, golf outings or football games (Wes Welker will watch his alma mater Texas Tech play Oklahoma State on Thursday).

As they broke practice for their four-day hiatus, Broncos coach John Fox tweaked his "stay out of the papers" message to his players based on last year's personal health scare.

» Week Four NFL Power Rankings

Sep 24, 2014 - 1:26 PM - by The Brandon Spano Network

By Brandon Spano

12. Buffalo Bills (2-1) Their only loss is to the San Diego Chargers who are turning out to be a damn good football team. The Bills are very balanced. They've called 88 pass plays and 88 run plays this year. On defense they're sixth in rushing yards allowed and haven't allowed a rushing TD yet.

11. Chicago Bears (2-1) They’ve won two in a row and both were on the road in moderately tough places to play in San Fran and New York. While the offense has been good in spurts, the Bears have been the most opportunistic team in the NFL with eight turnovers created in the first three games.

10. Carolina Panthers (2-1) This will be a tough team for as long as Ron Rivera is the head coach. The defense is nasty. Cam Newton does need to get this offense going though. When a team (Steelers) was finally able to run the ball and put up points on them, they had had no answer on offense. They are a disciplined team who has only committed two turnovers on offense, good for fifth in the NFL.

9. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-1) After a Baltimore loss, I may have slept on this club but they just beat the Panthers in North Carolina and are now 2-1. The Steelers look like the old Steelers again. Their 6.0 yards per carry on offense is the best in the NFL

» Upon Further Review: Broncos-Seahawks

Sep 24, 2014 - 1:22 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The Broncos' loss was still marked by positives, including the pressure from DeMarcus Ware, the shutdown of Percy Harvin and the game-tying play.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In one respect, the breakdown of Sunday's loss to Seattle was like that of any other game.

"Like all games, you have things you do well and things you don’t do well," said Head Coach John Fox. "We call it the good, the bad and the ugly."

But for a defeat, there was much more positive than usual, and it began with how the Broncos were able to prevent the jet and fly sweeps without sacrificing much against running back Marshawn Lynch.

» Broncos GM John Elway confident in team's position going into bye week

Sep 24, 2014 - 10:43 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
As John Elway sits behind his well-kept desktop, to his right are sliding glass doors to a walk-out balcony that overlooks the Broncos' practice field.

With a swivel of his chair, Elway looked out Tuesday to watch the team he built tune up with a bye-week practice.

It's a bit early for a state-of-the-team reflection from the Broncos' general manager and director of football operations, but the bye week shows up when the schedule says so.
