The Broncos would have been better off keeping Russell Okung

The Broncos would have been better off keeping Russell Okung

The one mistake John Elway made this offseason was not picking up Russell Okung’s option and letting him walk. Back in February when the Denver Broncos decided not to pick up Russell Okung’s contract option, we thought they were either crazy smart or just plain crazy. It’s looking a bit like the latter now. Without any viable option at left tackle it was clear they had a target in mind heading into free agency and/or the draft. The target ended up being Menelik Watson in free agency and Garett Bolles in the draft. But what if they had kept Russell Okung and still drafted Garett...

Broncos OL Billy Turner will have surgery on broken hand

Broncos OL Billy Turner will have surgery on broken hand

Broncos offensive lineman Billy Turner broke his hand during a 23-10 loss to the Giants on Sunday, coach Vance Joseph said Monday. Turner is having surgery and it’s unknown how much time he’ll miss. Turner replaced Menelik Watson at right tackle after Watson suffered a calf injury in the second quarter. Losing Turner is a big blow to Denver’s offensive line because he arguably played better than Watson against New York. Joseph said Watson is “day-to-day” with his calf injury. If Watson is unable to play against the Chargers in Week 7, the Broncos’ options to fill in a right tackle...

3 Broncos stood out (in a good way) in 23-10 loss to Giants

3 Broncos stood out (in a good way) in 23-10 loss to Giants

It surely wasn’t the game Broncos fans expected, losing to the 0-5 New York Giants Sunday afternoon, but as Chris Berman says, “That’s why they play the games.” Trevor Siemian threw three interceptions – leading to his 51.1 overall grade by Pro Football Focus – and a multitude of Denver’s players were injured during the game, including Menelik Watson, Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie. Oh, Siemian was injured, too, and is expected to undergo an MRI on his left, non-throwing shoulder Monday. Broncos QB Trevor Siemian expected to undergo MRI on left shoulder Monday, per...

Broncos RT Menelik Watson may have a serious calf injury

Broncos RT Menelik Watson may have a serious calf injury

Broncos starting right tackle Menelik Watson suffered a calf injury in the second quarter of a 23-10 loss to the Giants on Sunday evening and did not return to the game. Watson’s injury may be a serious one, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Of all #Broncos injuries, the most serious may be for RT Menelik Watson & his calf. He’s battled similar injuries in the past & they linger. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 16, 2017 Donald Stephenson has served as Watson’s backup this season but Stephenson was inactive against New York. Billy Turner, who dressed in the place of...

Kickin’ it with Kiz: If Broncos are serious Super Bowl contenders, it’s time to make deal for offensive tackle

Kickin’ it with Kiz: If Broncos are serious Super Bowl contenders, it’s time to make deal for offensive tackle

I’m on to you, Kiz. I know you secretly have your fingers all over the Broncos organization. So can you tell us why front-office honcho John Elway and coach Vance Joseph are so steadfastly sticking to Menelik Watson at right tackle? It seems like Elway should be banging down doors, looking for a new one. Would the Broncos consider a trade or signing a street free agent?

Sack blame in the first four games

Sack blame in the first four games

Who should be blamed for all of the sacks the Denver Broncos have given up on Trevor siemian? In Tim’s article about the performance of the OL so far this year. It was noted that someone has assigned blame for seven of the thirteen sacks we have allowed this year to Menelik Watson. Never being one to trust a number like that without verification, I decided to verify. Using NFL rewind/gamepass, I went back and watched all 13 sacks assigning blame to someone on all thirteen. Full disclosure, I played offensive line so if the QB is standing in the pocket for 5 seconds with his thumb up his...

Conversation Corner: What this game means

Conversation Corner: What this game means

We want to hear from Broncos Country. What does this game mean? Is this a must-win? Is it too early for such a thing? The story lines seem just a little bit bigger than normal this week. Bill Musgrave Menelik Watson Khalil Mack’s season (because we all know his success relates directly to his games against our janky tackles historically speaking) Division rivalry AFC West race I don’t know. This just seems like a really big game. You hear people from the Broncos talking about it being a “must-win.” That being said, it is only game 4 of a 16 game season. There’s a whole lot of...

Future Broncos: Offensive Line prospects

Future Broncos: Offensive Line prospects

The 2018 NFL Draft will provide the Denver Broncos with the opportunity to solidify their offensive line for the long haul. The Denver Broncos entered this season with significant question marks on their offensive line. They added three new starters in Ronald Leary, Menelik Watson and Garett Bolles over the offseason and to date, it’s safe to say that two of those three acquisitions have been positive for the team. Unfortunately, Watson has been horrible in his first two games with the Broncos and while it’s possible for him to improve over the course of the season, I don’t see him...
