» Bill Belichick and Ted Thompson had the balls to do it.

Nov 28, 2015 - 4:42 AM - by Broncoknight30
Let us just assume for just one moment that Oz continues to operate the offense efficiently. Is it really prudent to go back to the QB that the offense was stagnant and inconsistent with?

When Bill Belichick decided to stick with Tom Brady over Drew Bledsoe in 2001, many Pats fans were upset with Belichick over how he treated Bledsoe. Belichick was criticized in the media too and that included veterans who thought Bledsoe should have been treated better. If you think Belichick knew Brady was going to turn into this hall of fame, "all time great" who would guide the team to 6 SBs and 4 rings, then you would be crazy. All he knew at the time was the offense was responding to Brady. He chose to do what was the unpopular thing and he chose correctly.

Very similar situation with Favre and Rodgers. Favre was going back and forth with what he wanted to do as far as retirement. Rodgers was in his last year in 2008. The Packers had no clue what they had in Rodgers, as far as game conditions. Pretty sure they had a pretty decent idea as far as what they saw in practice. Ted Thompson made the very unpopular decision in getting rid of Favre.

Now, I am not saying Oz is gong to be Brady or Favre. My contention is if the offense continues to respond to Oz and IF he is efficient, then Kubiak/Elway will need to make a similar decision in my estimation. If that means cutting him loose and enduring the wrath of ignorant fans who refuse to accept Manning is not going to operate an offense that Kubiak will not be running, or the veterans now in the media who get offended then so be it. I for one would be behind them 100% if they make that decision (especially if the offense continues to respond and balance is established with Oz.)

» 5 Reasons Broncos beat the Patriots

Nov 27, 2015 - 4:38 PM - by Northman

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- There was a time when the Denver Broncos fared pretty well against the New England Patriots in the Bill Belichick/Tom Brady era.As in 2001-06 when the Broncos were 5-1 against the Patriots, including a playoff win in the divisional round following the 2005 season. But times change, and between 2008 and last season the Broncos are 2-6 against New England.

And with the Patriots 10-0 as they arrive in Denver for this Sunday night’s game and the Broncos sitting at 8-2, what happens in Sports Authority Field at Mile High will have a lot to say about what this year’s AFC playoff bracket will look like.

» God Bless You Sister Monique!

Nov 27, 2015 - 11:48 AM - by NightTrainLayne

With joy far bigger than the disease relentlessly attacking her tiny body, a Denver nun crafted her bucket list. Just one time, she wanted to ride in a helicopter. But, most of all, Sister Monique Vredeveld dreamed of leading the Broncos in prayer.

Little miracles happen. The nun's fondest football wish was granted. But fewer than 36 hours after the Broncos generously invited her to meet the team at practice, Sister Mo had to take another call. Heaven was on Line 1 and could not wait.

Before Vredeveld got the chance to bless receiver Demaryius Thomas, quarterback Peyton Manning and the gridiron heroes who made this feisty 88-year-old nun cheer with every ounce in her 85-pound frame on an NFL Sunday, she succumbed to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. . . .

» Von Miller is being held and hindered, yet remains undeterred

Nov 27, 2015 - 10:44 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
No team has seen its opponents called for fewer holding penalties than the Broncos. But Miller isn't letting it rankle him.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- At this point, the surprise will be when an official's flag does fly as Von Miller gets held by an opposing blocker.

Holding is a standard part of trying to keep Miller out of the backfield. Such penalties are often left uncalled; as anyone who watches enough football knows, not every holding infraction is going to end in a flag.

But it's slightly unusual that the Broncos have seen their opponents whistled for fewer offensive holding penalties than anyone else in The league. There have been just five holding penalties called for opponents grabbing Broncos defenders this season; one of them was declined and another was part of offsetting penalties.

That's an average of 0.5 holding penalties called against Broncos opponents per game. According to NFLPenalties.com, each team is called for an average of 3.46 offensive holding penalties per game, so it seems a bit unfathomable that Broncos foes have been whistled so few times.

» Broncos Cody Latimer Strikes A Pose For 8-Year-Old Pal

Nov 26, 2015 - 11:44 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
DENVER (CBS4) – Cody Latimer waited a season-and-a-half for his first career touchdown, but when he found the end zone last weekend against the Bears, he knew exactly how he wanted to celebrate.

“We did the pose,” said 8-year-old Carson Cline, mimicking the arms-crossed pose he did with Latimer a few days before the game. “And (Cody) said that would be his new touchdown pose.”

“Guess what happened at the game?” Carson proudly asked CBS4’s Mark Haas this week. “He made the TD and he actually did that (pose) at the game.”

Have fun concocting crazy scenarios. I was trying to figure out if the Chiefs could catch us if they win out and we both finish 11-5. Now I'll see how how of a seed I can get the Jaguars.

» Four former Broncos named 2016 HOF semifinalists

Nov 24, 2015 - 11:04 PM - by VonDoom
Four former Broncos—RB Terrell Davis, S Steve Atwater, S John Lynch, LB Karl Mecklenburg—have once again been named as semifinalists for a Pro Football Hall of Fame class, repeating the results of 2015.

Cornerback Ty Law, a Bronco for a year, also was selected as a semifinalist.

Out of 108 nominees, the Hall of Fame Selection Committee whittled the list down to 25 players. Only six of the 25 are defensive players, meaning half of the list spent significant portions of their career in Denver, and four of the six spent at least a year in Denver.

This marks Davis' 10th year as a semifinalist, Atwater's fifth, Lynch's fourth and Mecklenburg's fifth.

The list will be reduced to 15 modern-era finalists on Jan. 5, and the Class of 2016 will be selected on Jan. 31, 2016.

These four former Broncos have the potential of joining already-enshrined teammates quarterback John Elway (2004), tackle Gary Zimmerman (2008), running back Floyd Little (2010) and tight end Shannon Sharpe (2011).

» Osweiler's Passing Map

Nov 24, 2015 - 9:41 AM - by broncosfan32
Since Brock is starting again this week, I thought it would be cool to share this breakdown of his passing game. Even though he has only started 1 game so far he has made 51 passing attempts already. Pat Kirwan and the Real Football Network show a map of his passes, where he seems to be more successful and what he may be struggling in as we head to the Pats next week: https://realfootballnetwork.com/2015...r-passing-map/

» Roger Goodell is a dick.

Nov 24, 2015 - 8:58 AM - by Foochacho
What's up with the penalties this year? The Seahawks mauled the shit out of receivers the year they won the Super Bowl. If we lay a finger on them we get a penalty call. Hell they can maul our cb and we get called.

The only explanation I can think of is Goodell hates defensive teams, he has been trying for years to make it as easy as he can on Qb's. That superbowl must of pissed him off he was expecting a big showdown. So I guess he decided to make it easier in offensive teams. The refs have been told to be more aggressive against aggressive teams. Doesn't matter what ref crew it is, they all **** over the defense. How can the best pass rush in the league only have 4 holding calls against them? If the refs called all the penalties for holding, or called pass interference correctly we would kick the shit out of these other teams. Goodell must hate dominate D.
