Fantasy Football: The perfect draft

It will never happen. No matter what you do, how much research you do, and no matter how hard you try, you will never have a perfect fantasy football draft. This season, I’ve played out multiple scenarios in my head as I near some of my most important drafts–something I do every year–and every single time weird things happen when draft time comes, players I didn’t expect...

Denver's defense carrying the load while offense struggles

DENVER (AP) His Pro Bowl receivers haven't been on the field with him all offseason. He hasn't found the end zone all month. And he's coming off his first three-sack outing since mid-2013. Yet, Peyton Manning is thoroughly impressed. With his defense. The Broncos' starters have allowed just six points in 11 drives this preseason. Wade Phillips' unit has 15 sacks altogether, most...

Denver Broncos Defense: Orange Crushing It

The Denver Broncos have led the preseason through three games with 15 sacks. They have been bringing the heat and it is working. Their lowest sack total came in their most recent game with three sacks, however, it was very telling. The biggest pass rush stars on the Broncos roster are Von Miller, DeMarcus Ware and Shane Ray, who each registered one sack. Impressively Miller and Ware...

Three trends through three games

The Denver Broncos improved to 3-0 Saturday night with a late 19-12 victory over the San Francisco 49ers at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The game was a back and forth tilt with several lead changes and primarily only the first and second string players participating. When the clock struck zero and the Broncos exited the field, three trends were crystal clear. The Peyton Manning...

Reggie Bush’s Hurdle Attempt On Aqib Talib Failed Miserably (Video)

Reggie Bush tried to make the highlight reel in Saturday night’s preseason game, but instead he made himself a potential candidate for SportsCenter’s next “Not Top 10” list. The San Francisco 49ers running back attempted to hurdle Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib on a run toward the sideline, but the veteran defensive back was waiting for it and drove him into the ground...

Peyton Manning: We're still very much figuring out who we are

Jarryd Hayne Makes First Catch Of Career Against Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos did something Saturday night that the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys could not when they played the San Francisco 49ers--they kept preseason breakout star Jarryd Hayne from making a big run. He only had two carries (for no yards) and one punt return that only went for 12 yards.He did, however, make his first completion in the NFL, a nice 18-yard catch and run...

Juwan Thompson pushing Montee Ball to Denver Broncos roster bubble

  Cuts are coming and the Broncos have some decisions to make. The first round of cuts will take place on Monday as Denver has to trim their roster to 75 players. Most veterans will survive those first round of cuts, but the fourth and final pre-season game will be crucial for players on the brink to earn a roster spot. One of the players possibly on the bubble is Montee Ball, and...

Peyton Manning strange preseason continues against 49ers

Peyton Manning failed to get the Broncos into the end zone in seven possessions Saturday night, when Denver rode its stifling defense and good ground game to a 19-12 win over the sputtering San Francisco 49ers. All that rest has turned into rust for Manning, who was doomed by protection problems and an interception in the end zone one week after penalties and dropped passes kept...

MHS Rapid React: Special teams improved…ish

In a game that featured a total of eight field goal attempts and eight punts, specials teams were much of the story in the Broncos-49ers preseason Week 3 matchup. With former kicker Connor Barth now in Tampa Bay and the job fully Brandon McManus’s, it appeared that at least one aspect of the special teams phase had been decided. But it was another rocky game for the returners,...

Peyton Manning has a long way to reach “mid-season form”

  If anyone needed a tune-up in the Denver Broncos third preseason game, it was Peyton Manning. The 39-year old former NFL MVP looked in anything but “mid-season form” during the first half Saturday night, notably missing two would-be touchdown passes to Demaryius Thomas, among others. Sure, it’s early, but that much-needed chemistry between the two is currently lacking. Which...

The guy playing right tackle for the San Francisco 49ers is going to ripped a new one when the team watches film of this play. In his defense, DeMarcus Ware is one of the best defensive ends in the game today. However, that does not mean it is okay for him to get beaten by Ware around the edge so easy.This sack--and safety--was certainly an easy one for the big man. Read more »

MHS Rapid React: Manning still shaking off the rust

Preseason Week 2 brought far more questions than answers about how Peyton Manning would adapt to new head coach Gary Kubiak’s offense.

And while Saturday’s preseason Week 3 matchup with...

Denver Broncos defensive back Aqib Talib is a bad man. He is one of those rare defensive backs that is capable of laying the smack down on just about any ball carrier foolish enough to cross paths with him. He certainly doesn't need any help doing it, but for some stupid reason 49ers running back Reggie Bush decided to give him a little--he jumped right in to Talib's arms.If a running...
