» Packers debut at No. 1 in NFL FPI

Aug 31, 2015 - 9:53 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Below are the first Football Power Index rankings for the 2015 NFL season. For a full explanation on how the FPI is put together, please read this explainer. For more background, you can also read this Q&A with the developers of the FPI.
http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/13...ings-august-31

The Broncos are ranked 4th on here, but one thing I am confused about is their Predicted Defensive Rank. I did not read how this is put together, but 13th for Predicted Defensive Rank sure seems much lower than I think they should be based on what they have showed so far.

» Broncos Trade Chris Clark for 7th Round Pick!

Aug 31, 2015 - 10:42 AM - by Cugel
Broncos trade Chris Clark to Texans for 7th Round Pick. According to Vic Lombardi, more trades may be forthcoming. Ball may be next, although it might not be possible to get anything for him.

Vic anticipates they might trade for a defensive lineman. One guy breathing a LOT easier right now is Michael Schofield, the under-achieving RT who was supposed to start but instead slid down the depth chart to 3rd. There had been speculation that he might not even make the roster, now he's the prime backup to Ryan Harris.

Vic states that "obviously Clark wasn't in their plans." It's strange. They kept totally dissing Chris Clark both last year and this. He's a veteran who didn't play terribly in replacing Ryan Clady in 2013, yet despite all the problems the OL has had since the SB he was never considered for moving back to LT. Instead he was the backup RT to Harris. Well, they tried Clark at RT last year and it didn't work out. In any case this takes $1.4 million off the cap.

So, they should have around $5 million. They ought to be looking for a backup T for depth, but no word on whether they actually are going to do that. The OL hasn't been great so far, but Elway is absurdly attached to "his" picks, and holds onto them until they conclusively prove to be failures.

» Denver's defense could be the best in the NFL

Aug 30, 2015 - 7:59 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The Broncos' defense was sold on Wade Phillips before he installed his 3-4 alignment.

Phillips' track record said enough. Having veteran pass rusher DeMarcus Ware as one of his biggest proponents didn't hurt either.

Three games into the preseason, Denver's defense is showing signs that it could be the best in the NFL. The first-team defense hasn't allowed a touchdown, and the unit as a whole leads the league with 15 sacks that are spread among 12 players.

Rookie pass rusher Shane Ray was credited for half a sack in the Broncos' victory at Houston, and he notched his first solo sack against the 49ers on Saturday.

» Broncos have to trim their roster down to 75 players by Tuesday

Aug 30, 2015 - 6:35 PM - by Magnificent Seven
1. Tight end Jeff Heuerman

He's not getting cut, just officially placed on the season-ending Injured Reserve list. This will clear up one roster spot. They haven't been able to officially place him on this list because it would have placed him on waivers first.

2. Linebacker Lerentee McCray

The veteran outside linebacker has missed the majority of the summer with an injury, and has fallen behind rookie Shane Ray and the impressive Shaq Barrett since. The question here will be if/when this happens, will they place him on the IR list or waive him.

Either way, his roster spot has been taken.

3. Running back Jeremy Stewart

This easily could be Kapri Bibbs, but I see them sticking with the younger Bibbs for now. With C.J. Anderson and probably Ronnie Hillman not playing a ton(of at all) during the final preseason game look for Juwan Thompson, Montee Ball, and Bibbs/Stewart to get the carries.

4. Offensive tackle Charles Sweeton

He was signed during Training Camp to provide depth at the position. He was a longshot to ever make the team.

5. Offensive tackle Kyle Roberts

Kyle Roberts was signed as a undrafted free agent for the Broncos this spring. He played with the third team, and with him behind Michael Schofield and Chris Clark, there's not a spot for him.

6. Linebacker Chase Vaughn

He's a great story, but such a long shot to make the team. The outside linebacker position is deep for the Broncos, and there just isn't a roster spot for him.

7. Cornerback Tevrin Brandon

Brandon didn't play at all last night, so it's safe to assume he will not be making the roster. With guys like

» Montee Ball's long, hot summer has resulted in slide down Broncos' depth chart

Aug 30, 2015 - 6:05 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- It was just a couple calendar pages ago – June – when Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball was talking about an offseason filled with focus, of hard work, to get back what was once his.

And that was the starting running back job.

“As of right now I’m second; I’m behind C.J. [Anderson]," Ball said in June. “But I’m sure it’s going to be a 1-A, 1-B style and we’re looking forward to it. … The only thing I can do is work and fight back to get the No. 1 spot. But let’s say I do fight back and get the No. 1 spot, they can’t keep C.J. on the bench based off what he did. They most definitely have to use both of us.’’

This time last year, Ball was at the front of the line. Saturday night, as the Broncos closed out their third preseason game, Ball was the fourth running back into the game. The Broncos may indeed have a 1-A, 1-B look, but Ball is no longer in position to be the second back in line.

» Peyton: Broncos' offense still developing its identity

Aug 30, 2015 - 4:38 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
In two preseason appearances Peyton Manning doesn't yet look comfortable in the Denver Broncos' new offense.

In Saturday night's 19-12 win over the San Francisco 49ers, Manning finished with 14-of-21 passing for 124 yards, an interception and couldn't lead the Broncos into the end zone.

"Would we like to be a finely tuned machine going into Week 1? Sure," Manning said, via ESPN.com. "With some newness, some different players and some different things that we're doing, that's what we're working toward. ... Not to make excuses you can still win games as you're kind of finding your identity.
AND

"The biggest thing offensively is we don't have a lot to show for some of the good things that are going on," coach Gary Kubiak said. "We hold the ball for 20 minutes in first half (Saturday night), you're over 50 percent on third down, you think you'd be scoring some points, that's the thing that's discouraging. ... I had us in a couple tough situations that I've got to do a better job with our quarterback. There are things we can fix. There needs to be a sense of urgency to get some things cleaned up."

» Peyton Manning's ability to throw the long ball, has drastically declined. His thigh is good right?

Aug 30, 2015 - 8:52 AM - by Broncoknight30
I think it is going to be frustrating watching Manning this year. Could be me, but we all know age is a real factor. It is rather clear to me that it is really catching up to Manning.

If you all noticed too, Kubiak does run a lot more roll outs with OZ. Not that that is all that shocking, but the running game that we see being run when Manning is in there is not really the STRETCH run. It should be effective, but I just do not see it being what most think it might be.

I do know many clung to the EXCUSE about his bad thigh. I think it is good now right? The point is he under threw passes last night and those were passes that were automatic for him. They really aren't anymore.

» How important is mobile app vs mobile friendly BroncosForums?

Aug 28, 2015 - 10:21 PM - by Tned
I'm posting this here for visibility rather than in Town Hall.

vBulletin as a company is in a tailspin. If I upgrade to the vB5, I think most users will hate it (that's what's happened on most sites that have converted) and things like the high five and MHS will go away. At the same time, It's getting harder and harder to stay on the old version. Their mobile apps aren't very good and hard to work with. Forum Runner will not get any future updates (it was bought by vBulletin's parent company, and then development was killed on it).

One option is Xenforo, which was created by some of the original vBulletin designers. They don't have mobile apps, but they designed it to be responsive, so it works very well on mobile phones. Check out their support forum here, and you can even easily login to it using Facebook, Twitter or Google (or register an account) to see how posting, thanks (what would be come a high five) and the like will work.

Please visit https://xenforo.com/community/ from your phone/tablet and see what you think, and if this would be a reasonable alternative to a mobile app.

Based on playing around, I think Xenforo has done such a good job with their reponsive design (making it work equally well on PC, tablet or phone) that I don't think a mobile app is necessary.

Please take a look and give me your feedback or any other thoughts on the subject of vBulletin, moving and the like.

Thanks

» Darian Stewart more than a safety valve for Broncos

Aug 28, 2015 - 7:50 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
In an effort to create competition and microwave player evaluations, the Broncos held joint practices with the 49ers this past week. The prevailing silence was unsettling because it sat in stark contrast to the chirping of the 5,000 fans during training camp. There were no fights. No pushing. No shoving. And little talking, save for San Francisco linebacker NaVorro Bowman accusing an official of a hometown call on a juggling reception by Denver's Cody Latimer.

With one play, Darian Stewart returned the cacophony to the Broncos sideline by intercepting a pass by the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick. Denver's defense boasts 12 sacks this preseason, and with tempered optimism, general manager John Elway said it is the most talented defense since he arrived in 2011.

Interestingly, there is only one prominent new starter: Stewart. The conclusion remains easy to draw: Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense fits the personnel better, and Stewart's addition fortified a secondary that aims to be the NFL's best.

"No doubt," Stewart said. "That's the goal."

» Five things we learned from John Elway’s Q&A

Aug 28, 2015 - 4:59 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
John Elway took time to answer some questions Thursday morning about everything from his playing career to his family.

from article:

DENVER – Broncos Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway sat down with Colorado sports talk legend Les Shapiro to talk football and his career at the JCC Sports Hall of Fame Breakfast on Thursday morning.
4. Winning the Super Bowl over the Packers remains his favorite memory

“People ask me what my favorite play was in my career – it was when we kneeled down in the Green Bay game when we knew the game was over. That was my favorite,” said Elway.

“I’d taken 50,000 snaps in my life and I was worried about that snap. We worked so hard to get to that point, and not only us as players but when you think about Bronco Country, waiting 38 years for that and we had been so close and there had been so many disappointments along the way, I think it made it even that much better to finally get over the hump.”
5. Elway wants Manning to walk off ‘into the sunset with a World Championship’

The former Hall of Famer, Elway, and future Hall of Famer, Peyton Manning, often talk shop and exchange philosophies during the

» Broncos Sign TE Dan Light

Aug 28, 2015 - 12:21 PM - by Ziggy
Here's a great story on the new signing:




Twenty-nine degrees and falling on Fordham’s Rose Hill campus in the Bronx and Dan Light, a senior captain for the Patriot League champions, leads the Rams through practice in uniform without sleeves or tights.

He wears a beard beneath his facemask and tape on both wrists; a blue bracelet emblazoned with “WE LOVE YOU DANNY LIGHT” is visible. He is the only member of the team fully embracing the downturn in temperature as it prepares for the regular-season finale against the West Point Cadets. His coach, Joe Moorhead, also bearded for the upcoming playoffs and wearing three layers of clothing, plus a winter hat, worries about Light, noting that he battled a head cold recently.

“The trainers wanted him to come out with long sleeves on,” Moorhead says. “I mentioned it to him during practice. He said, ‘Coach, that’s just not in me.’ I just nod my head and let him go about his business.”

Light goes about his routes. He chops his feet, turns for catches, tucks the ball, sprints a few yards, then buttonhooks back to the huddle. He performs “Perfect 10s” with teammates, listening for the “Up!” call then “Down!” A whistle blows; the players end with a 10-yard sprint. Light listens to Moorhead express thanks for all the Rams have earned this season.

Light, the son of a father who died from ALS before his junior year and the brother of Zach, an autistic 20-year-old, takes a knee. He does not know that on the last play before halftime the next day, a Cadet will collide with that knee and he will tear his ACL after returning a squib kick. His season will be done, NFL prospects in limbo.

» Faith, fatherhood helped Broncos' Danny Trevathan tackle adversity

Aug 28, 2015 - 10:21 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Danny Trevathan tried to fight it. Oh, how he tried. But the final blow was too strong. He no longer could hide the pain, the frustration, the anger that tormented him after his left knee buckled once again.

The Broncos linebacker quickly leapt to his feet after tackling San Diego Chargers running back Ronnie Brown last December, only to quickly crumple to the ground. Down on all fours, he succumbed to the pain and buried his head between his arms to shield his anger, his disbelief that this was his reality. Again.

With a trainer on each arm, Trevathan limped to the sideline, his eyes squinching in pain. He tore off his right glove and threw it to the ground, leaving Qualcomm Stadium a souvenir of his maddening season.

How could this happen? Why him? Why this season? Why three injuries to the same leg in a matter of months?
