Watching film and the broncos love to play cover 6 and cover 4 little man coverage on third and medium or short #runmiketurnerrun

“Run Mike Turner, run,” Roddy White tweets after watching film of his upcoming Monday Night Football opponent, your very own Denver Broncos.
His film study conclusion doesn’t quite match the Broncos’ stats, though — they finished with the 9th ranked rush defense by Football Outsiders for Week One, 5th best by Pro Football Focus, and 9th best by traditional NFL standards (yards allowed — 75).
Still, whatever the Denver Broncos were doing on third down certainly wasn’t working. Hopefully the scout team caught on to the same weakness, because Roddy White believes he has.
Or at least, hopefully they have Twitter accounts.

Denver, CO. The regular season opener for the Denver Broncos was everything that any fan of the orange and blue could have wanted. Peyton Manning was back, and looked very similar to his old self. The defense showed some major play-making ability, with a few sacks and even an interception return for a TD when the game was on the line. The entire team looked focused and expecting...
Yeesh, that didn’t take long. Barely one game into his tenure as starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos and already Peyton Manning has his own corn field maze, located just outside Greeley, Colorado. He was a god in Indianapolis and I don’t remember any farmer’s doing this for him during his time with the Colts. Could be that there aren’t many corn fields in the...

Now that the dust has settled from the Week 1 and every NFL team has a regular season game under the belts, the business of the season can truly begin.I understand the special part of opening weekend for many fans, but at the same point, I believe that too much emphasis is put upon what happens the first time a team put on pads for the regular season. A win suddenly gives credence...

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Coming off a 19-for-26 performance for 253 passing yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in an impressive 31-19 victory over Pittsburgh, Denver quarterback Peyton Manning showed the football world last Sunday that while he might have been playing his first game in two seasons, he is no less dangerous a player.
On Monday night when he visits the Georgia...
Peyton Manning led the Denver Broncos to a week 1 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the season opener of NFL Sunday Night Football. While No. 18 is wearing a new jersey in Denver, he was once again No. 1 in NFL jersey sales after week 1.
Sitting out a full season did not hurt Manning on the field, and it did not hurt his popularity at all either.
In fact, not only did Manning...
