Broncos deny report about trying to trade Demaryius Thomas

Broncos deny report about trying to trade Demaryius Thomas

A report emerged on Monday morning that the Broncos tried to deal wide receiver Demaryius Thomas before the NFL’s trade deadline. Team spokesman Patrick Smyth responded to the report on Twitter, simply labeling it “false.” False. https://t.co/THsQVa6pwB — Patrick Smyth (@psmyth12) November 20, 2017 Thomas, 29, was selected by Denver in the second round of the 2010 NFL draft out of Georgia Tech. Since then he has been voted to five Pro Bowls and appeared in two Super Bowls, winning one of them. Thomas caught 13 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown in Super Bowl XLVIII, which was a...

Broncos should start Paxton Lynch in final six games

Broncos should start Paxton Lynch in final six games

The Denver Broncos’ season is over. Broncos fans may be sorry to hear that, but it is the plain and simple truth. That became painfully obvious after the team dropped its sixth game in a row on Sunday, this time to the Cincinnati Bengals, who won in Denver for the first time in 42 years. But that wasn’t the only thing that became obvious. The team hasn’t gotten any better behind Brock Osweiler (shocking, I know) and must now turn to former first-round pick Paxton Lynch to close out the last six games of the season. This seems so obvious that its surprising the move hasn’t already been...

Brandon Marshall, Chris Harris disagree with Elway's 'soft' remark

Broncos general manager John Elway created a stir on Friday evening when he said he believes his team has gotten a little soft. After Denver lost to the Bengals on Sunday evening, cornerback Chris Harris and linebacker Brandon Marshall disagreed with their boss’s statement. “Everybody in this organization is accountable for how we are playing right now,” Harris said when asked for his thought’s on Elway’s comment.

3 Broncos defenders stood out in loss to Bengals

3 Broncos defenders stood out in loss to Bengals

Offensively, the Broncos are broken. It’s why Mike McCoy was fired Monday, after the Broncos sixth loss in a row, a 20-17 defeat at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals. But, defensively, Denver is still solid. We highlight three defenders who enjoyed good games on Sunday, as graded by Pro Football Focus: Aqib Talib, 80.3 overall grade Talib was on top of his game Sunday evening, finding himself covering giants in Brandon LaFell as well as A.J. Green, one of the best receivers in the NFL. Talib gave up four receptions on five targets, but for only 34 yards, and had one pass defended, too....

What Broncos' offense will likely look like under Bill Musgrave

What Broncos' offense will likely look like under Bill Musgrave

Goodbye, Mike McCoy and hello, Bill Musgrave. The Denver Broncos fired McCoy, the team’s offensive coordinator, on Monday morning after their sixth loss in a row. For McCoy, it was his second stint with the Broncos in the position, as he was the man calling the plays from 2010-12 as well. McCoy has been touted for his ability to mold the offense to different players, most notably Tim Tebow, and working with a ton of different kinds of quarterbacks during his long career in the NFL. But, according to Troy Renck, Vance Joseph fired McCoy for a playbook which was too complicated and couldn’t...

Broncos coach Vance Joseph on if Paxton Lynch will start: 'We'll see'

Broncos coach Vance Joseph on if Paxton Lynch will start: 'We'll see'

At 3-7, the Denver Broncos aren’t officially eliminated from the playoffs, but their chances of reaching the postseason are almost nonexistent. With that being the case, many fans and pundits are calling for the team to start second-year quarterback Paxton Lynch in the team’s final five games of the season. Lynch has only started two games in his career, not enough to evaluate if he could be the Broncos’ quarterback of the future. So will Lynch start against the Oakland Raiders in Week 12? “We’ll see,” coach Vance Joseph said after a 20-17 loss to the Bengals on Sunday evening....

4 takeaways from the Broncos' 20 - 17 loss to the Bengals

4 takeaways from the Broncos' 20 - 17 loss to the Bengals

After we all thought that the Denver Broncos had completely hit rock bottom, they went above and beyond the call of duty by letting a last place offense waltz into Denver to all but extinguish any playoff hopes still fizzling in the Mile High City. Both the Broncos and Cincinnati Bengals, shockingly, walked into their Week 11 matchup still in contention of making the NFL Playoffs, but for the first time since 1975, Cincinnati squeaked out a win in Denver and is now only one game behind a playoff spot… pretty incredible. Lets look at four takeaways from Denver’s sixth loss in a row. 1. The...

Broncos cannot overcome blunders by offense, lose 20-17 to Bengals

Two costly offensive blunders caused the Denver Broncos to lose to the  Cincinnati Bengals, 20-17, increasing its losing streak to six games. Special teams significantly improved over the ghastly performance last week against the New England Patriots. After the Bengals went three-and-out on its first series, Kevin Huber’s punt was blocked by Shaquil Barrett, giving the Broncos excellent field position at the Bengals 29-yard line. On third-and-three at the Bengals’ four-yard line, quarterback Brock Osweiler laser-passed directly to Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick instead of intended...

Trevor Siemian among Broncos' inactives against Bengals

The Denver Broncos have released their list of inactive players for Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Here are the players who will not be participating in the AFC contest: Trevor Siemian, QB: This is the former starter’s first game on the inactive list. His early season struggles were well documented, and he likely won’t get another shot to be active barring injuries to either Brock Osweiler or Paxton Lynch. Jeff Heuerman, TE: Heuerman has been battling a knee injury, and the Broncos are already thin at the tight end position. While none of Denver’s tight ends have stood out,...
