Broncos' Malik Jackson armed for competition after breakout season

The first things you notice about Malik Jackson are his arms. They are the size of Kate Moss' waist. It's hard to believe he was once considered miscast as a defensive lineman at the University of Tennessee. "Do they?" said Jackson, when told his biceps look bigger than last year. "I appreciate that." His left arm tells a story of commitment and passion...

Twitter Tuesday: “35” fuels motivation for Denver Broncos

35 is not just a number to the Denver Broncos. To fans and players, the number brings a horrific memory of the 35-point loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII. But 35 is no longer just a source of embarrassment. It’s become a source of offseason motivation. The team is looking to come back stronger after last season’s devastating loss, and the motivation is seen in...

Denver Broncos community outreach on point

Seeing their favorite team reach the Super Bowl can take a fan to some all-time highs, watching that team get curbed stomped in the Super Bowl can take a fan to some all time lows, and with a change that dramatic will always come some bruising. This is not to say that after the Denver dropped the big game by a score of 43-8, any fan packed their bags and left Broncos Country, but...

Unsung Heroes: Six Broncos that may decide the Super Bowl

Sunday’s Super Bowl is a matchup for the ages. Given the big stage of the Big Apple — or close enough to it, anyway — and leading-man stars like Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning and his Seahawks counterpart, the eminently affable Russell Wilson, the championship matchup between the league’s best defense (Seattle) and the best offense in NFL history (Denver) looms as a classic...

Broncos DT Jackson used Bears' Peppers as on-field role model

It may not make Bears defensive end Julius Peppers feel any younger, but Peppers was the football ideal of at least one member of the Denver Broncos defensive line in this Super Bowl. Malik Jackson, a fifth-round draft choice of the Broncos in 2012, had a moment of awe in the 2012 preseason when Denver opened in none other than Chicago. Even though Peppers didn’t play in the 31...

Denver Broncos defensive end Malik Jackson can’t keep his shirt on

Some weird stuff goes on during Super Bowl media week. Denver Broncos defensive end Malik Jackson is now contributing to that. Wednesday, a reporter asked him to show off some of his tattoos. Naturally, Jackson went to the ones on his stomach. Keep your pants on, Malik. You may also be interested in:Governor John Hickenlooper renames Colorado’s 14ers for Broncos playersDenver...

Broncos bigs provide stern test for Patriots running game

Hyoung Chang/ Denver PostIt's no secret the Patriots current offense is built around it's ability to run the ball. After an adjustment period following the loss of Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots have heavily emphasized the run. The results have been impressive, as a red-hot LeGarrette Blount has gobbled up 431 yards and 8 touchdowns in the team's last three games, carrying...

Broncos must tear up Chargers' previous blueprint for victory

The blueprint to beating the Broncos was drafted by the San Diego Chargers. It's not particularly complicated: Use a physical offensive line to control the trenches, run the ball with authority, convert third downs and, ultimately, keep the ball out of the hands of Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, the likely NFL MVP. On Dec. 12, the Chargers' scheme worked just as it...

Broncos' new rallying cry: Remember the Chargers

Forget the Ravens. Remember the Chargers. Kickoff in the Broncos' AFC Divisional round game this weekend comes exactly a year after Jacoby Jones' 70-yard last-gasp touchdown catch sparked Baltimore's upset of Denver in double-overtime. But the Broncos don't have to go all the way back to their playoff pratfall against Baltimore for inspiration when they host San...

Denver Broncos: 2013 Week 7 NFL Power Rankings (#1)

Last week: 1 (+0) Record: 6-0 I can’t blame the Broncos for not getting up for the Jaguars before a big game with the Colts on deck. Even still, they won by double digits. What’s been especially impressive about the Broncos’ start is how they’ve done this without winning the turnover battle, as their turnover margin is zero on the season. This is in spite of the fact that...

Reality Check: Broncos 35 Jaguars 19

On Sunday, the Denver Broncos defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 35-19, although if you didn’t watch the game and only followed it on Twitter, you’d never believe it. There is much hand-wringing and derision regarding the manner in which the Broncos earned the win. In fact, the Broncos went into halftime with a 14-12 lead and a chorus of boooos from their homefield fans. Shameful...

Broncos 6-0 with imperfect 35-19 win over Jaguars

The Denver Broncos are welcoming back suspended superstar Von Miller with open arms and a spotless 6-0 record. The Broncos' bedraggled defense can sure use his help pressuring the passer.
