Back in April, the Denver Broncos and free agent Marcus Thomas were in a standoff over the defensive tackle’s future. Two other teams reportedly were interested in Thomas’ services and the Broncos offered him a one-year deal, which he turned down for want of a longer commitment.
At the time, Thomas told fans he’d sign with Denver “Whenever they call me.” This was interpreted by yours truly as agent speak to get the fans on Thomas’ side while he was really arguing for more money behind closed doors.
Eventually, the Broncos gave away Thomas’ jersey number, signed defensive tackle Justin Bannan and drafted Derek Wolfe in the second round of the draft. Thomas remains a free agent while, as of Friday evening, Bannan, Ty Warren, Kevin Vickerson and Mitch Unrein are the top four defensive tackles on Denver’s depth chart.
As it turns out, I may have misj...

We’re reading increased reports of big Orlando Franklin‘s possible shift from right tackle to a position in the interior of the offensive line, with right guard (somewhat surprisingly) being the most-discussed destination. The idea: move Franklin to right guard, then shift Chris Kuper over to left guard, replacing Zane Beadles. The move would put the Broncos’ strongest offensive...
Here was Peyton Manning's final stat line by the end of the Broncos' first preseason game in Chicago: 4/7 for 44 yards, 1 interception and a 36.3 passer rating.
If you read that stat line without watching the game last night, you'd think that Manning had an off game. In fact, you'd probably think he had a terrible game.
From watching the tape, Manning did look...
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, [...]

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...
Click on the photo for more Denver Broncos girls Football season is about to start so honestly we could pick just about any team on the planet to rave about. But eyes will definitely be on Denver this year as Peyton takes the reigns at QB. Oh and the cheerleaders aren’t too bad either. Let’s [...]
I’m back Juan…
Peyton Manning was back in action for the first time in a long time and he looked pretty decent as he knocked the rust off. He only showed off his arm on a 19 yard gain to Eric Decker (my favorite Broncos WR this season), but he was picked off in the redzone on a ball he threw behind Stokely. I will have to see more to give him a full endorsement, but this was...
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.
Last night, two AFC teams took to the field in their first preseason contests of 2012. Both games were fairly high profile, as the Chargers took on the Packers in a game that featured two on the NFL’s best quarterbacks, while the Broncos took on the Bears, highlighted by the return of Peyton Manning. Here [...]
