» NFL Scoring Statistics Favor The Broncos!

Feb 05, 2016 - 2:49 PM - by Cugel
The following is not proof that the Broncos will win the SB, but it is food for thought. Defense wins championships. Record setting offense? Not so much:

Know what the top 5 all time scoring offenses in NFL history have in common? None ever won a SB.

Out of the top 10 scoring offenses in NFL history 1 (1999 Rams) won the SB.

The Panthers scored 500 points. Fifteen teams before them scored 500 points or more in a season in the history of the NFL. Four of those teams won SBs and 11 failed.

Only teams to score 500 or more points and win the SB prior to 2000? '94 49ers, '98 Broncos, '99 Rams. Prior to 2000 scoring 500 or more points was such an accomplishment that 3 out of the 4 teams that did it won the SB (exception was the '98 Vikings).

But, in the 2000's scoring exploded after the NFL changed the rules to protect the QB and defenseless receiver and instituted the 5-yard limitation on blocking the receiver.

Scoring exploded. Eleven teams teams have scored 500 or more points in a season since the 2000 season, but only 1 of them has won the SB - the 2009 Saints.

Scoring the most points in NFL history, in order:

#1 - 2013 Broncos
#2 - 2007 Pats - Anointed prior to the game as the "greatest team of all time" after they won 16 games in the regular season, but they lost in SB to the Giants
#3 - 2011 Packers - lost in the playoffs to the Giants
#4 - 2012 Patriots - lost AFC Championship game to Ravens.
#5 - 1998 Vikings - had Randy Moss & Chris Carter, but lost the NFC Championship game to the Falcons.
#6 - 2011 Saints - lost in the divisional round.
#7 - 2000 Rams - lost in the divisional round.
#8 - 1999 Rams - Beat Titans in the SB.
#9 - 2004 Colts - Peyton Manning's best season prior to 2013 - lost to the Patriots in the playoffs.
#10 - 2010 Patriots - wild card,... [Read More]

» What do you think the #1 key to victory in this game is?

Feb 04, 2016 - 6:04 PM - by BroncoWave
In everyone's opinion, what is the one thing we HAVE to do well in this game to have a chance to win?

For me, it's not turning the ball over. I mentioned this in another thread, but Carolina is #1 in scoring but not even in the top 10 in yards. They generate a lot of their points from their defense and forcing turnovers more so than by long, sustained drives. If we can go the whole game without turning the ball over, I think we have a very good shot at winning. If we turn it over multiple times, however, I think we have little to no chance. So to me that is the big key to give us a shot, not turn the ball over and win the field position battle.

What say all of you?

What are your plans, staying home or going out or do you have tickets to the game? Hanging with people or curling up in the fetal position by yourself? What you planning on for food? These are all important questions!

» ESPN: How John Elway missed out on a fortune

Feb 04, 2016 - 2:45 PM - by VonDoom
Did anyone see this yesterday? I don't remember this story at the time, if it came out. Pretty interesting, given where he ended up anyway:

The document was dated Sept. 23, 1998, and it contained, at least in retrospect, John Elway's golden ticket to a lifetime fortune.

The deal: Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen would give Elway the right to buy 10 percent of the Broncos for $15 million. Bowlen would also give him the option to buy another 10 percent of the franchise by forgoing the deferred salary Bowlen owed him on the condition Elway would become a special assistant to Bowlen, which would eventually lead to a COO job. That total deferred salary? About $21 million.

But there was even more that made the deal a no-lose proposition. If Elway wasn't happy with his investment, he could sell back his interest, two to five years later, for $5 million more than his original purchase price plus 8 percent interest a year. Since the Broncos weren't making cash calls, it was essentially free money.

And then came the real kicker. If Elway agreed to the deal, he would have right of first refusal to buy any other stake in the team if the Bowlen family sold to an outsider. NFL teams don't come up for sale often.

The value of NFL franchises has skyrocketed, but even then the Broncos were worth plenty. Still, Elway had the wherewithal to easily make this deal. In 1997, he made the largest business deal an NFL player had ever made off the field by selling his car dealerships for what turned out to be $82.5 million, comprised mostly of AutoNation stock. Elway had nine months to think about the offer. The option to buy a piece of the Broncos expired in June 1999. In January, he led the team to its second straight title. In

» New survey shows only 14% of fans think Cam criticism racial

Feb 03, 2016 - 8:29 PM - by Tned
A larger percentage of NFL fans believe that Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton faces criticism because of his actions on the field than because of his race, according to a survey produced for ESPN by Langer Research Associates and released Wednesday.

Nearly two out of three fans -- 62 percent -- believe that any criticism of Newton is because of his style of play on the field (63 percent of white fans and 38 percent of black fans). Only 14 percent think it's because of his race.
http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/14...d-actions-race

Not too surprising, as anyone other than race baiters and some in the media trying to stir things up for ratings, know that race isn't the reason Cam is liked or disliked, just like Tebow's race isn't why he was liked or disliked.

Things like his whining today about having reporters ask him the same questions three days in a row, and his celebrations for those that don't like them, are far more likely to be factors.

It's also interesting to note that black respondents like NFL celebrations more than white and younger people like them more than older (this latter part certainly not a surprise).

» Bronco rookie gets sent home after caught by police in prostitution sting

Feb 03, 2016 - 9:20 AM - by Northman
http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/14...g?sf20241930=1

What a dope.


Denver Broncos rookie safety Ryan Murphy and his brother were detained and questioned Tuesday as part of a prostitution sting in San Jose, California.Murphy eventually was released and was not charged in the incident. The Broncos have sent Murphy home.

"Although practice squad safety Ryan Murphy was not cited by police, we decided it was best for the team if we continued our preparations for Super Bowl 50 without him," Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said in a statement. "Ryan is returning to Denver but his status as a practice squad player has not changed at this time."

The San Jose Mercury News reported that the sting involved Murphy's brother and was conducted by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Police. The paper, citing sources, said the pair was questioned by sheriff's deputies Tuesday evening at a Motel 6 in north San Jose.

» The Super Bowl. No one gets in without a ticket.

Feb 03, 2016 - 1:09 AM - by Dapper Dan
http://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/articl...13156_20279017

On Tuesday, Denver Broncos punter Britton Colquitt revealed he had to make an extra-special purchase for this Super Bowl 50 thing hell be a part of on Sunday night. That purchase is in the form of another $1,800 ticket for his newborn baby.

Theres no age limit to tickets. Its $1800 for our week-old daughter we just had. Its kind of crazy, Colquitt said. You wont remember, but Im paying for it. Its not about the money because with the tickets you end up kind of forfeiting your Super Bowl check. Its about the medal I guess and the memories and putting your name in history forever.

» Osweiler: Adam Gase one of the game's 'brilliant minds

Feb 02, 2016 - 1:40 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Brock Osweiler spent plenty of time during Opening Night praising a Broncos coaching staff that helped guide Denver to the Super Bowl in Gary Kubiak's first season.

Still, Peyton Manning's backup hasn't forgotten about the talented quarterback tutor who helped shape his young NFL career: Adam Gase, the newly anointed coach of the Miami Dolphins.

"First off, I love coach Gase," Osweiler said Monday. "He's a tremendous coach and a tremendous person and I'm sure he'll do great things down in Miami."

» Denver Broncos team bus involved in minor accident

Feb 01, 2016 - 5:34 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The Denver Broncos team bus was involved in a minor accident, according to a Twitter post by outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware.

To keep the day interesting, we have a small wreck. Looks like everyone is ok though, Ware wrote along with a photo of the incident.

Jeff Darlington of the NFL Network reports that, while there is minimal damage to the bus, it does not appear to be significant.

The Broncos arrived in San Jose this past Sunday ahead of Super Bowl 50, which will take place at Levis Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.

Denver will compete with the Carolina Panthers on Sunday for the championship title.
