Tale of the Tape: Offensive Offense Edition

Tale of the Tape: Offensive Offense Edition

The Broncos offense put up their lowest point total of the season, and even scored some points for the other team. We’ll look at the film to see what went wrong. We’re back for this week’s film study, and I’ve got to warn you, it’s not pretty...but you knew that if you watched the game on Sunday night. There are a lot of aspects that could be covered and a lot that went wrong that I won’t be able to get into. A quick diversion into my process before we get into the tape. While watching the game I’ll usually make notes of things that stick out on the broadcast or things I’m...

Broncos-Chargers predictions Week 7: We don’t know if the offense will show up

Broncos-Chargers predictions Week 7: We don’t know if the offense will show up

But we all hope so! The Denver Broncos (3-2) are coming off a really tough home loss, while the Los Angeles Chargers (2-4) are surging with two straight wins. The team that wins this game will quite likely save their season for another week. Collectively, our staff along with Brandon Perna of That’s Good Broncos thinks the Broncos will win 19-18. Yes, it was that close. Here’s how we predicted the game individually. Broncos 34, Chargers 16 Do I have long-term faith in the Broncos offense? Not at all, but one thing I do have faith in is how this team plays when they are on the ropes....

Broncos ST coordinator deflects question about potentially trying out kickers

Broncos ST coordinator deflects question about potentially trying out kickers

Broncos kicker Brandon McManus appears to be in a bit of a slump. After going a perfect 10-of-10 on field goal attempts in the preseason, McManus has gone 8-of-13 on field goal attempts through five games of the regular season. McManus’ 61.5 conversion percentage is the lowest since his first season, 2014, when he converted 69.2 percent. So will Denver consider bringing in any other kickers for tryouts? “That’s a good question,” special teams coordinator Brock Olivo said after practice Thursday. “That happens a lot. It happens around the league. You see it. That would be a question...

Broncos special teams will look different this week

Broncos special teams will look different this week

The Broncos lost special teams ace Corey Nelson to a season-ending arm injury this week. The fourth-year linebacker is expected to be placed on injured reserve on Saturday. “Corey was a great special teams player for us, one of our leaders and captain qualities,” special teams coordinator Brock Olivo said after practice Friday. “We’re going to miss Corey big time.” One of the candidates to fill in for Nelson is linebacker Jerrol Garcia-Williams, who will likely be promoted from the practice squad. Elsewhere on special teams, Denver will also have a new punt returner this week. With...

Are the Buffalo Bills open to trading one of their offensive tackles?

Are the Buffalo Bills open to trading one of their offensive tackles?

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott seemed to suggest they might be open to it. If so, the Denver Broncos would definitely be interested. The Denver Broncos basically have one available healthy offensive tackle on the active roster in Garett Bolles. They’ll be promoting from their own practice squad, but with the trade deadline approaching it might make sense to make a trade. Unfortunately, the only rumor out there happens to be swirling around the Buffalo Bills and all of their tackles are currently struggling as badly as the Broncos right tackles have been struggling. Per...

Broncos expected to call up two players from practice squad

Broncos expected to call up two players from practice squad

Broncos fourth-year linebacker Corey Nelson suffered a season-ending arm injury during practice Thursday and he will have surgery Monday. Denver plans to place Nelson on injured reserve and replace him by promoting  Jerrol Garcia-Williams from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. Garcia-Williams (6-2, 235 pounds) signed with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Hawaii earlier this year. He recorded 148 tackles and 3.5 sacks during his time with the Warriors. Garcia-Williams will likely be asked to contribute on special teams right away. Denver is also expected to promote rookie...

Broncos need Jordan Taylor to play big role on Sunday

Broncos need Jordan Taylor to play big role on Sunday

The Afternoon Drive caught up with Denver’s receiver who has the chance to shine against the Chargers. There’s a popular cliche in the NFL. Over the last half decade or so, it’s taken a life of its own. Everywhere you turn, this damn phrase pops up. In some instances it works, but for others it’s just plan lazy. This is one of the few times it actually works and it has to do with the Denver Broncos. “Next man up.” For the Broncos to have a chance on Sunday against division rival the Los Angeles Chargers, they will need that in a major way. On Thursday alone, Denver lost three...

Broncos LB Corey Nelson suffers season-ending elbow injury

Broncos fourth-year linebacker Corey Nelson suffered a season-ending elbow injury in practice and will be placed on injured reserve, coach Vance Joseph announced Friday. Nelson (6-1, 226 pounds) has only recorded four tackles on defense this season but he will be greatly missed on special teams — he played a team-high 24 special teams snaps against the Giants last week. Since being selected by Denver in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL draft out of Oklahoma, Nelson has recorded 104 tackles and one sack. He filled in for five games as a starter last season and recorded a career-high 67...

With two OL injured, Broncos will start Allen Barbre at right tackle

With two OL injured, Broncos will start Allen Barbre at right tackle

With starting right Menelik Watson (calf) and backup Donald Stephenson (calf) both out this week, the Broncos will start Allen Barbre at right tackle against the Chargers, coach Vance Joseph said after practice Friday. Joseph also said the team will probably promote an offensive lineman from the practice squad for more depth — offensive tackle Elijah Wilkinson is the most likely candidate. Denver won’t have to clear a roster spot for Wilkinson because they still have an opening on the 53-man roster. Barbre, meanwhile, will be making his first official start of the season, though he’s...
The Broncos defense needs to get some turnovers

The Broncos defense needs to get some turnovers

The Denver Broncos are not generating enough turnovers on defense, while the offense is generating more than enough. Through five games, the Denver Broncos have a -5 turnover differential that ranks 28th in the NFL. That number includes just four defensive takeaways - all interceptions and no fumbles. Meanwhile opposing teams have nabbed six interceptions and three fumbles. Broncos defensive coordinator Joe Woods made the turnover game a focal point this week in practice. “In terms of the fumbles, we had a turnover circuit yesterday at practice,” Woods said of generating turnovers. “I...

Broncos sign WR Tim Patrick to practice squad

Broncos sign WR Tim Patrick to practice squad

The Broncos signed wide receiver Tim Patrick to their 10-man practice squad Friday, according to KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis. To make room for Patrick, the team will likely part ways with receiver River Cracraft, who suffered an injury, according to Klis. Patrick (6-5, 210 pounds) signed with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Utah earlier this year but failed to make their final roster. During his three seasons at Utah, Patrick hauled in 61 receptions for 888 yards and five touchdowns. All five of those touchdowns came in 2016, as did 45 receptions and 711 receiving yards. Denver has...

Shane Ray ready to ease himself back into action with Broncos

Broncos third-year outside linebacker Shane Ray returned to practice this week but he’s not eligible to return from injured reserve until next week when Denver faces the Chiefs on the road. That’s okay, though, because Ray still needs to get back into game shape. “Shane, he’s eager,” defensive coordinator Joe Woods said after practice Thursday. “Really with Shane, it’s about taking his time. He came back the first practice and he was huffing and puffing over there in drills. I told him not to try to get it all back in one day. “He has to ease himself back into it and get back...

Broncos' running back rotation is complicated, Mike McCoy explains

Broncos' running back rotation is complicated, Mike McCoy explains

Bad news for opposing defenses and fantasy football owners. The Broncos believe they have three running backs capable of starting in the NFL, but only one of them is on the field at a time. C.J. Anderson is clearly Denver’s lead back, but the rotation behind him — and the rotation in general — is hard to figure out. Jamaal Charles is a speedy weapon but the Broncos want to keep him fresh — perhaps that’s part of the reason why Devontae Booker received three more snaps than Charles last week. If you’re looking for a straight answer on how Denver plans to rotate their running backs...

Are the Buffalo Bills’ signature wins over Broncos, Falcons really that special?

Are the Buffalo Bills’ signature wins over Broncos, Falcons really that special?

The Broncos and Falcons were a combined 5-0 when the Bills beat them. They’re a combined 1-3 since. Earlier this season, the Buffalo Bills pulled off consecutive wins over the then-undefeated Denver Broncos (in Buffalo) and Atlanta Falcons (in Atlanta), and there was much rejoicing. Those were two very impressive wins at the time. In the ensuing weeks, however, a little bit of the luster has come off those games, given the struggles of the teams they came against. Since losing to the Bills, the Broncos beat the Oakland Raiders by six points in a game finished by EJ Manuel, had their bye...

And as the defense goes, so go the Broncos. Look for a W in the forecast. Thank goodness it is game day, Broncos Country, so we can erase last week’s debacle and “move on to L.A.” as they say.

4 things to watch when Broncos play Chargers in Week 7

The Denver Broncos opened the 2017 season against the Los Angeles Chargers. Now, just over one month later, the two squads are set to square off again. You may get the feel that these are two teams going in different directions after the way the season started. The Chargers have won back-to-back contests while the Broncos are coming off a loss to the New York Giants, a team that came into Sports Authority Field with an 0-5 record and won by multiple scores. That said, this is a huge game for both teams. Kickoff is scheduled for 2:25 p.m. MST and the game will be televised on CBS (broadcast...
