» The official teach Timmy about football thread

Dec 10, 2016 - 2:08 PM - by Timmy!
Yashala has discovered my terrible secret. I dont watch the games. 10 years of posting here, and I finally want to fit in. I implore my fellow Bronco fans, errrr, I mean you football gurus, to impart your knowledge on this lowly mountain oaf. I will start with a few questions I have:

1. Where does all that loose change go? Getting a quarter back, or a dime back or even a nickel back would be neat. Free money right? Is there a drawing every game to see who wins the money?

2. In a line stunt, what sort of stunts are preformed? Are we talking cartwheels or do they jump cars with bikes afterwards or something? I don't think I've seen this part before.

3. What breed works best for a "zone dog?" I would bet something fast would be best, maybe a greyhound.

4. Are actual convicts used in a jailbreak blitz?

5. To save money, why don't the Broncos only use free safetys? I mean, I understand having a strong one and all, but if the other guy will work for free, why pay the strong one? This business model is flawed.

6. When a player gets a sack, whats in it? Potatoes? Or is it like a gift bag sorta thing?

7. With all these shotguns and pistols around, isn't there a danger of somebody getting shot?

8. What measurements does a player need to be considered as having a "tight end?"

» Practice / press conference notes - week 14 (Titans week)

Dec 07, 2016 - 2:02 PM - by VonDoom
Kubiak decided to do a walkthrough today instead of a normal practice, as he felt the team was struggling with fatigue.

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 45m45 minutes ago

Brandon Marshall (hamstring) was the only defensive player on the 53-man roster not on the field for the defensive walk-through this a.m.

Cameron Wolfe ‏@CameronWolfe 1m1 minute ago

#Broncos QB Trevor Siemian came out for walkthrough today. He was active in an early drill during open viewing period. Promising sign.

» Broncos claim RB Justin Forsett

Dec 05, 2016 - 4:16 PM - by VonDoom
As expected, especially with the Bibbs injury:

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 13m13 minutes ago

Broncos claimed former Ravens' RB Justin Forsett on waivers today, per source. Broncos' HC Gary Kubiak and Forsett reunited again.

» Booker Is Not Our Runningback

Dec 05, 2016 - 2:18 PM - by WARHORSE
Ive seen enough of this guy. No vision whatsoever. Couldn't find a hole if he opened his mouth. Honestly, Bibbs does something good almost every time he gets a chance over the past couple years.

Not sure if there are other struggles on his end that only the coaches know about (Knowing playbook, assignments, etc) but just chugging out yardage, he stands out to me far better than Booker.

Had Bibbs not gotten injured, I would have liked to see him a LOT more.

» The Good and the Bad: Week 13

Dec 04, 2016 - 5:33 PM - by BroncoWave
I missed some chunks of this game and wasn't paying the closest of attention to what I did see, so I won't be able to add much this week, but here goes:

Good:

The defense, specifically CHJ, Roby, and Von for their forced turnovers. They are back to saving games for us, which is nice.

Booker. It didn't look like he had the best of stats, but that TD run was awesome. That was one of the toughest runs I have seen a Broncos RB make in a long time.

Bad:

The rest of the offense. I'm rooting for Lynch, but the guy ain't ready yet. And the line is still trash.

Again, short thread, so please fill in anything I missed.

» Von Miller gives every player in AFC West custom bottle of wine

Dec 02, 2016 - 12:45 PM - by VonDoom
Santa Miller came early this year.

Broncos linebacker Von Miller gifted every player in the AFC West — including practice-squad players and those on injured reserve — with a bottle of custom wine and a Thank You note. That’s nearly 290 bottles.

The wine, called The Setting, was blended by Jesse Katz, a Boulder native and Fairview High grad, who founded Devil Proof Vineyards and Aperture Cellars in California. (Katz also created a custom blend for the wedding of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.) On the label of each bottle is an orange outline of eye-glasses, Miller’s signature accessory, and his signature.

And with each was a note that read:

It is an honor and a privilege to take the field and compete with you twice a year. We are so fortunate to have this opportunity to fulfill our childhood dreams of playing in the NFL. The blood, sweat, aches and pains, and endless hours spent watching film are a testament to the love and dedication we have for this game. So take a moment, reflect on all your successes, and enjoy your accomplishment. Appreciate those who have helped you get this far, and start working towards your next childhood dream.

Thank you for helping to make our game great!

-Von Miller

» Broncos defense’s knack for closing games has vanished; here’s how they plan to remedy the recent trend

Dec 02, 2016 - 12:40 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Coffee is for closers. Or in the Broncos’ case, the playoffs are for closers.

Denver’s defense, long the strength of the team, has squandered a lead late in each of its past two games. At New Orleans, a blocked extra point and score distracted from an alarming two-minute collapse. And against Kansas City last weekend, there were no defensive heroics to save the day. Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith marched his team to the tying score late, then two field goals in overtime for a 30-27 victory.

“If you give us an eight-point lead, I would bet my game check that no one would score on us, so I would have been in debt right now,” Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib said, laughing. “I’m going to bet it every time. So we put that (loss to the Chiefs) on us.”

The defense’s focus now shifts toward fixing its problem. Players point to lapses in pass coverage, costly mistakes including penalties, and being too comfortable in their success the past year and a half as reasons for what’s gone wrong.

“You just assume that everybody is going to do their job,” said defensive end Derek Wolfe. “This defense puts everybody in position to make plays. You assume that person is going to be that position at the right time to make that play. That didn’t happen right there at the end.”

Inside linebacker Brandon Marshall added: “That was the second game in a row. I don’t want to say we relaxed. I know we’re playing more zone at the end of the game. We had a few mental errors, the coverage wasn’t tight enough, we didn’t tackle well.”

Denver has allowed only two scores in the last two minutes of the fourth quarter this season, one each in the past two games. Both came on drives where the opponent had three minutes or less

» NFL draft: 4 positions the Broncos should target.

Nov 30, 2016 - 2:22 AM - by CrazyHorse
http://broncoswire.usatoday.com/2016...arget-in-2017/

The Denver Broncos are in the middle of a push to win the AFC West and get back to the playoffs for a chance at another Super Bowl run. A key game within the division is on tap for next weekend when they will host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football.

Still, it’s never too early to look toward the NFL draft and today, we’re going to do just that.

At 7-3, Denver is one of the best AFC teams. But as has been displayed in losses to the Atlanta Falcons, San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders, the team does have some glaring weaknesses.

Here, we’ve identified four positions—in no specific order—that the Broncos should target in the draft.
Have to agree with everything on this list except wide receiver. I'd put a pass catching tight end above that. Our top 2 wide outs are good. Everything else is spot on.

» State Your Case: Karl Mecklenburg

Nov 29, 2016 - 12:05 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
By Rick Gosselin

Talk of Fame Network

Versatility was a plus for Karl Mecklenburg during his NFL career with the Denver Broncos.

But what worked for him as a player is now working against him as a Hall-of-Fame candidate. Mecklenburg is one of the most difficult players in NFL history to pigeon hole into a position.

Mecklenburg wasn’t allowed to line up on the weak side his entire career and come off the edge in the pass rush like Hall-of-Famer Lawrence Taylor for 139 career sacks. He wasn’t allowed to line up on the strong side his entire career and engage tight ends and running backs in the passing game like Hall-of-Famer Ted Hendricks for 26 career interceptions.

And Mecklenburg wasn’t allowed to stand on the inside for 12 seasons and make tackle after tackle after tackle in the running game like Hall-of-Famer Mike Singletary.

Consistency in performance – and consistency at one position – puts players in the Hall of Fame.

Mecklenburg checks the box for consistency in performance but not consistency at a position. Because he didn’t have one position.

Mecklenburg was the defensive equivalent of a Swiss army knife. A multi-purpose defensive tool, he played anywhere and everywhere, from season to season, often from game to game.

“My position is strange because I played all seven front positions,” Mecklenburg told us in a Talk of Fame Network interview. “One of the challenges I face in having an opportunity of going to the Hall of Fame is that, statistically, people don’t know what to do with me.”
