Andy Janovich wasn’t very effective in 2017

Andy Janovich wasn’t very effective in 2017

Andy Janovich didn’t find much of a role on offense in 2017, but that might change under Bill Musgrave. Andy Janovich seems to be everyone’s favorite fullback, but he only saw the field on about 14% of snaps all season. Although, he did see the field quite a bit more late in the season. Overall, he was a non-factor as a runner and a pass catcher. His role for the Denver Broncos in 2017 was largely as a lead blocker and pass protector. Andy Janovich PFF Grade According to Pro Footbll Focus, Janovich was not a very effective player during his second season in the NFL. His 56.9 overall...

Derek Wolfe vs Malik Jackson: A No Bull hindsight look

Derek Wolfe vs Malik Jackson: A No Bull hindsight look

The Denver Broncos ended up 5-11 and now we’re second guessing everything as a fan base. Let’s take a closer look and see if there’s any merit to this discussion. With the Jacksonville Jaguars making noise this year in the playoffs it has become somewhat of a common talking point for Broncos Country to look back on two players that were both a huge part of our Super Bowl 50 winning season and wonder if John Elway made a mistake. I do like fun hindsight discussions like these as the provoke good fodder for football after football is over with (5 - 11...never forget). So let’s dig in...

Horse Tracks: Broncos need an impact player with their top pick, not a project

Horse Tracks: Broncos need an impact player with their top pick, not a project

After a disastrous season and having missed the playoffs for two consecutive years, the Denver Broncos can’t afford to take a project with their fifth overall selection — they need an impact player. Good morning, Broncos Country. The Denver Broncos have a golden opportunity to add a wealth of talent to their roster through the 2018 NFL Draft. With a current arsenal of nine selections and the fifth overall pick, John Elway and his staff have the draft ammunition needed to make some big waves — and they certainly need to. After an abysmal 5-11 campaign under first-year Head Coach Vance...
Denver Broncos 2018 free agent list

Denver Broncos 2018 free agent list

The Denver Broncos are looking pretty good on the free agent front in 2018. The list of guys to re-sign is likely quite short. The Denver Broncos in years’ past have had to contend with some big free agent signings to keep their star players on the roster, but in 2018 they get a nice break from all of that. As free agency approaches, attention will be paid more to the free agents around the league than the free agents here in Denver. However, there are a few guys worth looking at bringing back. 2018 Unrestricted Free Agents Allen Barbre - OG Jamaal Charles - RB Jared Crick - DE Todd...
Allen Barbre should hit free agency without an offer from the Denver Broncos

Allen Barbre should hit free agency without an offer from the Denver Broncos

John Elway tried to get a stop gap along the offensive line with Allen Barbre and it largely didn’t work out. Allen Barbre was a major contributor along the offensive line early on in the season, but by Week 12 his playing time had been reduced to nearly zero snaps as the team clearly decided to move to the depth behind him. He was supposed to be a veteran guy who could come in and lock down one of the interior guard position, but Max Garcia was constantly pushing him for playing time and ultimately he was replaced by Connor McGovern after Ronald Leary went to injured reserve. Allen...

Adam Gotsis figures to play a big role in the Denver Broncos 2018 plans

Adam Gotsis figures to play a big role in the Denver Broncos 2018 plans

After a strong sophomore season, Adam Gotsis has solidified his role as a starting 3-4 defensive end for the Denver Broncos. Adam Gotsis played a huge role in the Denver Broncos defense in 2017. He played over 56% of the snaps for the defense and was a major contributor for a defensive line that were very good at stuffing the run, finishing fifth in yards per game and first in yards per attempt. Like Derek Wolfe, Gotsis has turned into one of the few second round draft picks that have worked out for John Elway during his time in Denver. In a way, Wolfe has become a bit expendable with the...

Peyton Manning on Monday Night Football? That would be fun for Broncos fans

The former Denver quarterback has 12/5 odds to become the new analyst on MNF. Good morning, Broncos Country! Peyton Manning and “Monday Night Football” seems like quite the duo. Since Jon Gruden departed to become the head coach of the Oakland Raiders, the speculation has only picked up. In fact, Bovada gives you 12/5 odds on the former Denver Broncos quarterback to get the job. From what I’ve gathered there has been no comment from Manning on the speculation, so take of that what you will. Given the amount of time Manning put into his craft as a player, you know he would do the...

Report: Broncos could void Demaryius Thomas’s contract this offseason

Could DT’s time with the team come to an end? According to The Denver Channel’s Troy Renck, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has a wrinkle in his contract where he could end up being a free agent this offseason. Thomas has a $4 million dollar option bonus due on the last day of the league year. If the Broncos decline that option, Thomas’s final two years of his contract will be voided and he will be a free agent. Will a wrinkle in the contract of #Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas make him vulnerable this offseason? #Denver7 https://t.co/F9mh7Ocrdn pic.twitter.com/UM6wnXCzF9— Troy Renck...

According to Pro Football Focus, there were few better at catching a contested throw than Demaryius Thomas in 2017. According to Pro Football Focus, Demaryius Thomas ranked third in the NFL at catching contested passes in 2017. Considering how poorly the quarterback position played for the Denver Broncos last season, Thomas would need to catch a lot of contested passes to get the stats he got.

Although John Elway’s “helicopter” will forever be one of No. 7’s most iconic plays - among a long list of comebacks and heroic efforts - the single greatest “moment” in Broncos’ Super Bowl history is John Mobley’s knockdown on Brett Favre’s 4th-and-6 pass to ensure a world championship. It’s settled because although Broncos Country is split on the decision, Hall-of-Fame running back and Super Bowl XXXII MVP...

Broncos top 10 list on NFL Network was a big flop

Ian St. Clair and I took issue with the NFL Network’s list of the top 10 Broncos. There were some major omissions. Every team has great players. Fans love to debate which players are the best, and everybody loves a top ten list. A few weeks back, the NFL Network aired their list of the top 10 Denver Broncos. It was great to see some of the old Broncos, but the list left a lot to be desired. @AdamMalnati16 & I take a look @nflnetwork's attempt at a #Broncos Top 10 list, and I have a huge problem with it. We also look at the divisional round of the #NFLPlayoffs & rip on the #LOLChiefs on...

HT: A very early look at the AFC West in 2018

With the whole offseason still to go, who’s looking good or not so good in 2018? The Broncos reigned supreme in the AFC West for half a decade under the leadership of John Elway and Peyton Manning. With Manning’s retirement, the team tumbled to 3rd in the division in 2016 and then slid on down into the divisional basement in 2017. But the past is the past, and the most important season now is the one ahead of us. It’s very early in the offseason, but the AFC West’s teams already look different than they did just a few weeks ago. So who’s looking strongest, and who’s looking...
