Oregon secondary is a primary asset: the DBoyz are on their grind

With all the uncertainty and anticipation that surrounds Oregon’s 2014 football squad, there is one unit fans just don’t worry about. Oregon’s secondary has been excellent for most of the last 10 years under John Neal. In 2012 they led the nation in interceptions, and despite the loss of three starters from last year’s team, the outlook is very solid for this season. That’s...

Bronco Mailbag: Designing a Denver Defense and More!

This is the real question, isn’t it? This is what Elway, Fox and Co. are paid to ensure. I do think they did enough to get back to the Super Bowl, and here’s the reason why.The NFC took a step forward overall. The 49ers had arguably the best draft of them all. The Seahawks lost some major pieces in free agency but remain a potent force. Despite their brushes with the law, the...

Every team in the league has questions that need to be answered, as no one has a clear and easy road map to the Promised Land.

Denver Broncos middle linebacker is Mr. Irrelevant

Quick, name the best middle linebackers in the NFL today. Patrick Willis! Luke Kuechly. James Laurinaitis? This is not your father’s NFL. Gone are the household names of yesteryear. Gone are the any-down blitzers that wreaked havoc and terrified opposing quarterbacks. Dick Butkus, Jack Lambert, Ray Lewis, to name a few.

Broncos' T.J. Ward says he left Cleveland because of the culture

I think we all can agree that lately the Cleveland Browns have had a history of losing. The team hopes that Johnny Manziel will be the player to spark a change for the organization. For Denver Broncos safety T.J. Ward, that just wasn’t good enough. Ward played four seasons for the Browns and thought he needed a change. Ward says he left for Denver because of their winning culture...

T.J. Ward leaves Cleveland for Denver’s “winning culture”

After four years with the Browns, safety T.J. Ward signed as a free agent with the Broncos this offseason. He has already noticed a difference in the attitude. Ward says that when you go from a team like the Browns (who went either 4-12 or 5-11 in every one of Ward’s four seasons) to a team like the Broncos, you immediately get a different feel for how they go about their business...

T.J. Ward talks about Denver’s winning culture vs. Cleveland experience

Whether or not the Browns will miss T.J. Ward as they welcomed Donte Whitner as his replacement this off-season is up for debate, but I tend to think the Browns will be just fine. That says more about Whitner than it does Ward, but there’s little doubt that you’d have to assume T.J. Ward and the Broncos will likely win more games this season than the Cleveland Browns and Whitner...

Why the Denver Broncos future is just as bright as their present

There’s no doubt that the Broncos have a win now mentality, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t planning for the future. Why were the Seahawks so good last year? Because they were able to pay their best players – Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson – pennies to play at All-Pro levels and devote the rest of their cap towards creating one of the deepest teams in recent memory...
