Deadspin tears the Denver Broncos to pieces

The Denver Broncos suck, at least according to Deadspin. Before you get too upset, know this. Drew Magary pens these pieces for all 32 NFL teams this time of the year before every season and, quite frankly, they’re hysterical. Magary can do what very few writers can and that’s make a reader laugh out loud. So what’d he come up with for these 2015 Broncos? It was mostly just...

Peyton Manning has a long way to reach “mid-season form”

  If anyone needed a tune-up in the Denver Broncos third preseason game, it was Peyton Manning. The 39-year old former NFL MVP looked in anything but “mid-season form” during the first half Saturday night, notably missing two would-be touchdown passes to Demaryius Thomas, among others. Sure, it’s early, but that much-needed chemistry between the two is currently lacking. Which...
