Denver Broncos: Kicking woes

Welcome to the Denver Broncos, Connor Barth! After signing a two year deal with the team last Tuesday, Barth made quite the first impression last Sunday.

Five steps to winning the Super Bowl

Despite an impressive record of 10-3, Sunday marked the first time this season that the Denver Broncos looked like a team that could win the Super Bowl. That sounds funny, especially since most experts had penciled Denver in for a February trip to Glendale long ago, but it’s true.

Recap: Denver Broncos use smashmouth football to crush the Kansas City Chiefs

In a league full of players with names like Ziggy Hood, Frostee Rucker, Guy Whimper, and Captain Mutherlyn, there is a man named Connor Barth. Every time I say it I feel like I am cursing in German. I just know that the first 46-yard field goal that Barth doinks off the upright, Twitter will...
