Denver Broncos: Looking Ahead

The free-agency boom has come and gone. We see little trickles of teams signing or cutting a player.

The Denver Broncos came out fast and hard throwing gut punches to the rest of the NFL. They signed T.J. Ward, Aquib...

This list is about the players that you aren’t totally sure what you are going to get, the players who need to step up if the 2014 Broncos want to win a third...

Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl? April Fools!

One of the most depressing April Fools jokes yet is actually a harsh reality for Denver Broncos fans. In Field Gulls, a Seattle Seahawks blog on SB Nation, Kenneth Arthur wrote about the Seahawks winning the Super Bowl in what seems like a satirical article. The piece talks about the absurd idea that the Seahawks’ performance in Super Bowl XLVIII was “one of the most dominating...

Free Agency preview: Denver needs to sign three DBs

Well, this is awkward. After cutting Champ Bailey today, the state of the Denver Broncos’ defensive backfield is in doubt. OK, cutting Champ was a necessary evil and it’s time the Broncos move forward despite all the great play he put forth on the field for 10 seasons. But that move leaves them without any of their starting cornerbacks from last year. Sound the alarm, people...

Could San Diego have been considered as a Super Bowl replacement for Arizona?

Yesterday afternoon, Arizona governor Jan Brewer vetoed Senate Bill 1062, which was seen by many as a piece of legislation that was anti-gay. Had she not taken that action, and allowed the bill to become law, there would have been ramifications – including from the National Football League. It was widely rumored earlier this week that the NFL was prepared to move Super Bowl XLIX...

Chargers should target Broncos RFA corner Chris Harris Jr.

As the combine comes to a close, the next thing on the minds of team executives is the start of free agency. The “legal tampering” start of free agency isn’t until March 8, with negotiations allowed to occur between teams and players with no official deals in place, but conversations between teams and agents happen every year at the combine. As most of the unrestricted free...

Broncos cornerback says he is ahead of schedule

Merely a week following ACL surgery, Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. says he is off crutches. You can attribute part of that to Harris going to one of the best surgeons in the sports business, Dr. James Andrews.

Denver columnist: Seahawks won the Super Bowl because they beat the Broncos "B teamers"

The Seahawks destroyed the Broncos in the Super Bowl by a final score of 43-8 in one of the worst blowouts in the game's history.
