New England Patriots are loaded at cornerback

The New England Patriots ended the 2013 season with one of their worst performances on defense in the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos. After giving up over 300 yards passing in a game three times during the 2013 regular season, the Patriots defense gave up over 300 yards passing in the divisional playoff game victory over Indianapolis and then 400 yards passing to...

Why the Denver Broncos should trade out of the first round

I am not an advocate of trading out of the first round of the NFL Draft.  That is where teams find impact players.  Impact players make game changing plays and can get teams to the next level of competitiveness.  Yes, there are examples of first round busts, but there are busts in all rounds.  There are also examples of late round gems, but those players are surprises that very...

Denver Broncos Draft Needs

Photo Credit: Denver’s Draft Needs The Denver Broncos have few glaring needs, but they do have needs. Let’s take a look at the defensive side of the ball. In Free Agency they addressed the needs at strong safety, defensive end, and corner back with TJ Ward, Aqib Talib, and Demarcus Ware. However another corner would not hurt. Inside linebacker and free safety are...

Free agent signings that NFL teams will regret

Free agency is always a big gamble. Big contracts are doled out in hopes of landing a game changing performer, but more times than not decline in performance or injury makes the investment a disappointment when the dust settles. This offseason will be no different, of course, but there’s 10 players in particular where the investment seems clearly misguided. Here are ten signings...

Broncos mock drafts change with free agent signings

The Denver Broncos have made a big enough splash in free agency this year that mock draft prognosticators are being forced reevaluate their decisions for the team’s first round selection. Wide receiver and cornerback had been a couple of the most popular choices for the team, but with the additions of Emmanuel Sanders and Aqib Talib most analysts were forced to change their tune...

What Will the Denver Broncos do with their First Round Pick?

The Denver Broncos are in an excellent position. Fresh off of a trip to the Super Bowl, they’ll enter 2014 with veteran signal caller still running what was the most prolific offense of all time in 2013, while only getting younger and hopefully more productive. While the Broncos did lose some quality talent in free agency with the likes of Eric Decker and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie...

5 free agents that the Seahawks should avoid

Sometimes the best moves are the ones you don’t make.

Mailbag: Will the Denver Broncos draft a middle linebacker?

With the Denver Broncos going “all-in” during Free Agency, one glaring need is at the forefront of every fans’ thinking; middle linebacker. Denver — led by GM John Elway — went out and signed a hard-hitting safety in T.J. Ward, a shutdown corner in Aqib Talib, a pass-rushing pro in DeMarcus Ware and Eric Decker’s replacement with Emmanuel Sanders. But what about middle...

The Denver Broncos have gone wild in Free Agency, grabbing all the top talent around. They re-signed Andre Caldwell, then added T.J. Ward, Aqib Talib and DeMarcus Ware to the defense. A few days later, Emmanuel Sanders was signed to take over for the departed Eric Decker. That spending frenzy has been fun, but it’s also depleted Denver’s funds. While the Broncos started Free...

Denver Broncos sign CB Aqib Talib

I really don’t understand giving top cornerback money to Aqib Talib. This contract is worth 57 million over 6 years, an average annual salary of 9.5 million, making him the 5th highest paid cornerback in the NFL in that regard. I don’t get the appeal. He’s never made it through a full 16 game season, missing 23 games in 6 seasons since being drafted in the 1st round in 2008...
