Five Broncos defensive improvements

For regular readers of the Mile High Sports Daily, it will come as no surprise that the present author has not been a fan of the way that the Denver Broncos have approached the defensive side of the ball this season. What should be further unsurprising is that that same author is not short on suggestions for how the Broncos may improve in their defensive ventures. What follows then...

Friday FRAY: Broncos vs. Seahawks and top 50 movies

Facts: The Broncos face the Seahawks on Sunday. It’s the first time since 1997 that the previous Super Bowl match up played each other in the regular season the next season. This is a different Broncos team than got gutted on the world stage last February. It is more talented, but has yet to gel into a cohesive unit on either side of the ball. This is the game they have been shooting...

Farm system didn’t need a change in scenery

The timing of the announcement could not have been better. Tucked in the middle of a series-clinching drubbing of the division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers and relegated to the back pages by the ongoing misadventures of the NFL, the word that the Colorado Rockies were officially ending their 22-year affiliation with the triple-A Colorado Springs Sky Sox barely caused a ripple in the...

The Broncos have no reason to panic

Denver Broncos fans need to chill. Walking around town, you might think Denver already missed the playoffs, despite their 2-0 start. Fans and media members alike must remember what they asked for in the offseason – upgrades. Getting those in place takes time. John Elway and Co. addressed the defense in an effort to get tougher and have emphasized the process of creating balance...

The Broncos pass rush is anemic

If the Denver Broncos go into CenturyLink Field on Sunday and play the way they did against the Chiefs last week, Seattle is going to drop 50 points on the orange and blue. Despite all the talk of a “resilient” defense in the wake of Denver’s wholly uninspiring 24-17 win over Kansas City last weekend, let’s call it what it was: A defense that couldn’t get off the field...

John Fox needs to step up his game

John Fox could very well be the perfect coach for the Denver Broncos. Fox is a “get out of the way” kind of guy – and that’s meant to be a compliment. He’s not into commanding the spotlight like some NFL coaches (see the Harbaugh Bros.). He’s not a rah-rah guy (see Pete Carroll). He’s certainly not a creative, mad-scientist type (see Chip Kelly). Fox doesn’t have...

Is the shine off Parker’s prospect status?

There’s not much left to look forward to this baseball season, and least in relation to the Colorado Rockies. Such is the fate of a team that, after an 0-6 road trip in which they scored just eight runs in six contests, is still threatening to lose 100 games for the first time in franchise history. About the only thing left to enjoy then, besides the last days of sunshine at Coors...

We are all part of the NFL problem

I’m part of the problem. In spite of the fact that the NFL suffered through a horrible week in terms of off-the-field news, I didn’t change my weekend plans. And I didn’t even consider it. Yesterday, I watched football seemingly from sunrise to sunset – enjoying the RedZone channel in the morning, watching the Broncos beat the Chiefs in the afternoon, and rooting on Jay Cutler...

Three stars in the Broncos ugly win over the Chiefs

The Denver Broncos are 2-0. Neither game was played with discipline or consistency by the Broncos but they came away with a 24-17 win against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday afternoon at home. Much like last week, Denver jumped out to an early lead to only see it slip away. The often sloppy game took a group effort on offense lead by Peyton Manning and another stout, gritty performance...

Rams have strong showing in home opener

Fort Collins – CSU football fans and their starting quarterback Garrett Grayson have a long, complicated relationship. It’s a relationship exemplified by the Rams easy 42-14 win over UC-Davis on Saturday. Grayson torched the Aggies to the tune of 425 yards and four touchdowns through the air. The main beneficiary of this aerial assault was sophomore Rashard Higgins, who hauled...
