Top 10 in 2015: The best safeties in the NFL today

Typically speaking, sports fans tend to worry about two things – the past and the future. They’ll debate who was the greatest player of all-time, while also spending hours discussing whether or not a rookie is going to be develop into an All-Pro. Both are fun exercises, things that keep fans engaged and the beer flowing at the local tavern. But they miss out on what is most important...

Even teams with mediocre offenses can rise to the top on the back of a ferocious defense, as we’ve recently seen with the...

30 Questions: It’s a matter of safety

Last offseason, the Broncos made noise by signing several high profile free agents. Among them was strong safety T.J. Ward, whom Denver inked to a 4-year, $22.5 million contract, with $14 million guaranteed.

T.J. Ward takes no prisoners as Denver Broncos safety enforcer

  T.J. Ward is old-school, and for the Denver Broncos defense, that’s a good thing. A very good thing. Ward is a hard-nosed, huge-hitting warrior in the defensive backfield. He’s a throw-back to the days before defenseless receiver was a penalty or pass interference was called for little contact. He’s unafraid to hit a man hard in order to protect his piece of the gridiron...

NFL 100 Snub Has Denver Secondary Heated and Motivated for Revenge

The Denver Broncos feature a highly talented trio of secondary defenders, yet not one of them made it onto the NFL Network’s NFL 100 list in 2015. Undoubtedly, between T.J. Ward, Aqib Talib and Chris Harris, at least one of them deserved to make the list, yet when all 100 players were announced, all three had been forgotten. This snub isn’t being received well, to say the least...
