Five Broncos players who could be in trouble

Amidst all the analysis and cockamamie terminology made up by football ‘analysts’ this time of year, there is one thing about the NFL preseason that we can all agree to enjoy: speculation on a player’s future based on almost nothing. Hey, I’m not here to judge! It’s fun dammit, and I’m about to do it too. Let’s just, you know, call it what it is. Without further ado...

Most of you already know this, due to Doug Ottewill’s column yesterday, but it bears repeating: Ronnie Hillman could be the starting running back for the Denver Broncos. Let that sink in.

Denver Broncos’ rep on the NFL’s hottest wives and GFs list is a smokeshow

In the movie “Moneyball,” one of the Oakland A’s scouts isn’t high on a player because the baseball prospect has an ugly girlfriend; such a fate suggested a “lack of confidence” to the long-time talent evaluator. It’s an interesting bit of amateur psychoanalysis, one that probably isn’t far from the truth. Thus, there may be a reason to take a look at the wives and...

Montee Ball is the starting running back for the Denver Broncos in 2014. There is no doubt he is the man in the backfield.

Despite criticism Ronnie Hillman is staying focused

Ronnie Hillman seems to be somewhat of scapegoat for the Denver Broncos among fans and some of the media.

Yet as he steps on the field in camp he maintains his commitment to his game and his teammates. Regardless of whom starts for Denver the running game will...
