Denver, CO. With the first 2012 Denver Broncos preseason game just one day away, the initial depth chart has now been released. Not many surprises really, and quite honestly whatever order the players are in on that sheet doesn’t mean much at all at this point. The team still has four exhibition games to really dissect who is legit and who may not even make the final cut. But one thing that this first depth does accomplish is that it can send a message. Every year, there are always a handful of players who are not living up to what the coaches and fans are expecting. This year is no different, as a few guys need to step it up, beginning tomorrow versus the Chicago Bears.
The first player I will address is potentially the most enigmatic, and has been for a few years now. Robert Ayers, what is the deal? The University of Tennessee product was selected by the Broncos three years ago with the 18th overall pick. Keep in mind, he was chosen in that draft ahead of Clay Matthews (GB), Ha...

NFL teams announced their first depth charts on Monday of the 2012 season and the running back situation for the Denver Broncos shows that RB Knowshon Moreno could be on his way out of Denver. Moreno is currently listed as the team’s fourth running back on the depth chart.
Willis McGahee has a firm grip on the starting role for the Broncos heading into this season. Lance Ball is...
OT Ryan Clady
This one is a no brainer. The Broncos don’t have any other options that make any sense and they won’t let their franchise left tackle hit the open market, even though, as I’ve explained before, he’s one of the most overrated players in the NFL. Still, those guys are available on the open market almost as rarely as franchise quarterbacks. Clady and the Broncos...
Peyton Manning is about to face his first pass rush in 579 days.
The four-time MVP makes his Denver Broncos debut in the preseason opener at Chicago on Thursday. If he has an extra pep in his step or anticipates a larger than usual adrenaline rush against the Bears, he's not showing it.
He insists it's simply the next steppingstone in his comeback in Denver after missing...
Peyton Manning's first appearance with the Denver Broncos was a brief one.
Manning played one possession in the preseason opener against the Chicago Bears on Thursday and got intercepted near the end zone.
In his first appearance since the Pro Bowl following the 2010 season while with Indianapolis, Manning completed 4 of 7 passes for 44 yards.
On the game's first play...
I have always been a big John Elway fan. I felt, even before he won two Super Bowls in his last two seasons in the NFL, that he was one of the greatest ever. I still feel that he’s top five. The rings were just extra on a brilliant career. He didn’t need them. Unfortunately, [...]
The Denver Broncos shocked the world by making the playoffs, and even winning a playoff game, last season. This year though, they’ll be lucky to finish at 8-8. A record of 7-9 or 6-10 is highly likely. Here are five reasons why the Broncos will disappoint in 2012.
1. THE SCHEDULE
The Broncos have the toughest schedule in the AFC, facing teams that had a combined 2011 win...

Willis McGahee is firmly planted on my sleeper list this season and for good reason. He has gained 10 lbs of muscle this off season and lowered his body fat % in order to take a big pounding this season. We know John Fox loves veteran runners and Peyton Manning makes fantasy runners that much better.

How Will Peyton Manning do tonight in his Broncos’ debut?
Ah yes, the preseason is officially here. I know there was the Hall of Fame game just a few days ago but for some reason that game has always had a bit of a different feel to it but tonight I can feel the excitement in the air as we look forward to seeing the likes of Peyton Manning taking the field for the first...
According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Miami-Dade attorney’s office didn’t agree with the assault charges that were filed against Broncos linebacker Elvis Dumervil, so they decided to not charge him with crimes associated with the road rage incident he was involved in.
“The state attorney’s office decided Tuesday to not formally charge Dumervil of any wrongdoing...
Tonight when the Denver Broncos play the Chicago Bears, the drama that started 3 years ago comes full circle. See for me, looking back to the start of the 2009 NFL season was a bad one. Bronco fans had just lost our future Hall of Fame coach and the new guy somehow chased our Pro-Bowl QB out of town. But little did we know how much drama would follow and where it would lead.

For a while, the Tebowtard tent revival overwhelmed Denver until locals either bought in or were denied basic services. After riding the Denver defense, Willis McGahee and Matt Prater to a division title at 8-8 and a Wild Card victory over a Steelers team that decided against covering receivers, Teebs was shipped East to bring Jeebus to the land of bagels...
