Broncos Country is in search of answers

Broncos Country is in search of answers

Photo by Dustin Bradford/ No matter how crazy the answers are, Bronco fans will listen. The Denver Broncos are in a strange position. After more than 30 years of sustained success, the Broncos have been mired in a slump that has lasted longer than anyone could have anticipated. It has been such a difficult journey for fans that some people are grasping at straws to find ways to fix the problems. I give you exhibit A, Big Al, Alfred Williams. The former Bronco, Super Bowl champion, and longtime sports talk radio host in Denver joined Ryan Edwards and Benjamin Albright on Broncos Country...

Injury report: Ja’Wuan James is a full participant in Wednesday’s practice

Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/ Here is your Wednesday injury report for the Denver Broncos and the Indianapolis Colts. The Denver Broncos and the Indianapolis Colts released their first injury report of the week ahead of their Sunday afternoon match up. For the Broncos, they received some good news on the injury front while potentially losing a key free agent addition for the season. The #Broncos hope Bryce Callahan will be ready soon, but the possibility he misses the entire season is very real at this point. https://t.co/2mbryUiTcG— MileHighReport (@MileHighReport) October 23,...

Bryce Callahan progressing slowly; may not play this season

Bryce Callahan progressing slowly; may not play this season

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports One of the Denver Broncos high-priced free agents may not see the field in 2019 as he continues to struggle to come back from injury. When the Denver Broncos shelled out a three-year, $21 million deal with $10 million fully guaranteed to cornerback Bryce Callahan, they probably didn’t expect him to never heal from a foot injury he suffered the previous season and ultimately miss the entire 2019 season as well. However, here they and we are. Broncos CB Bryce Callahan underwent stem cell treatment on his foot last month, with the hope it would promote...

Broncos at Colts preview: Denver aims to get big road win

Photo by Dustin Bradford/ The task for the Broncos doesn’t get any easier on Sunday, but here’s how they can get a win in Indy. Where do the Denver Broncos go from here? In terms of the here and now, it doesn’t get any easier on Sunday at the Indianapolis Colts. When you take into account how the Broncos (2-5 overall, 1-2 AFC West) looked the last time they were on the field ... I’m still trying to comprehend what we witnessed last Thursday at Mile High against the Kansas City Chiefs. It doesn’t exactly scream hope for the next challenge and a Colts (4-2, 2-0) team that is...

Courtland Sutton joins the ranks of undisputed WR1s

Courtland Sutton joins the ranks of undisputed WR1s

Photo by Dustin Bradford/ The 2nd year, former 2nd round pick has new expectations on him in the wake of the Emmanuel Sanders trade. Just as the trade of Emmanuel Sanders to the 49ers has implications about the rest of the Broncos’ 2019 season, it carries implications for the players staying in Denver. Of these, Courtland Sutton’s confirmation as the Broncos’ top WR and top overall receiving option is easily the biggest. That’s not to say it’s anything like a surprise, though. After a respectable rookie year with 704 yards and 4 TDs caught amid struggles with drops, Sutton has...

Harris Jr. says best way to stop trade rumors is to win - ‘We can’t quit’

Harris Jr. says best way to stop trade rumors is to win - ‘We can’t quit’

But it won’t be easy going on the road to Indy on Sunday. Amid swirling rumors about possible trades for Chris Harris Jr., the Broncos’ No. 1 cornerback just has to hunker down and think about playing the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday - and not whether he’ll be with a different team a week later. It’s not easy to do when playing for a losing team in which trade rumors are far more common, but Harris Jr. knows the business and knows his job. And right now his only job is to prepare for T.Y. Hilton and the Colts. “I’ve just got to stay focused and get ready for T.Y. Hilton. I...

Drew Lock could give the Broncos a real idea of what they have in Rich Scangarello

Could the Broncos OC help the rookie QB flourish? | Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports The Broncos resident QB whisperer will need to work magic to get the rookie ready. Way back when the Broncos first traded for Joe Flacco, I spoke with QB Statistician Ryan Michael to gather gather his thoughts. Broncos Country found this a bit harsh in February: In my opinion, Flacco has about a 25% chance of being somewhere between “pretty good” and “good” but he’s more likely to be average or worse. Like casting John Travolta for the next straight to Redbox film. Would you expect a strong acting...

My Ultimate DFS Fantasy lineup for Week 8

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports This week promises to be insane as ever and we are going to take some big risks to get some big rewards. Okay, so Phillip Lindsay didn’t help us out last week against the Chiefs, and the lineup fizzled out like a damp sparkler. This week we are going to go for the home run and try to pick a lineup of long-shots that will make us rich. The lineup is taken from Draftkings.com QB - Ryan Tannehill The guy came in for the Titans last week and was an immediate improvement over the “meh” Mariota. He was getting the ball out quickly and had a solid game...

Emmanuel Sanders trade is not a winning move

Emmanuel Sanders trade is not a winning move

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Some quick thoughts on the Denver Broncos trade of Emmanuel Sanders to the San Francisco 49ers along with NFL news. What is said in front of the cameras should never hold the same weight as what is done behind the scenes. Tuck that rule away. It has helped me make sense of things as a fan of the Broncos for decades. John Elway can keep saying, “We’re about winning football games.” He can say it as many ways as he wants using any number of catch phrases and canned answers. But as of yesterday, the Denver Broncos are no longer about winning in the 2019...

How would you grade the Emmanuel Sanders trade?

Photo by Dustin Bradford/ Give us your way too early grade for Emmanuel Sanders trade to the 49ers. Now that the dust has settled a bit on today’s Emmanuel Sanders news, we want to hear your thoughts and grade for how you think the trade went for the Broncos. Brandon Krisztal joined Broncos Country Tonight on KOA Radio to discuss the trade with Benjamin Allbright and Ryan Edwards. On air, Brandon said he would initially give the trade a “B” grade, with the caveats that we really won’t know how this plays out for Denver until the 2020 draft. Obviously, it’s too early to know for...

What should the Broncos do at quarterback?

What should the Broncos do at quarterback?

12-year veteran or rookie bust? Last Thursday it was hard to tell. | Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports I asked the MHR gang what they’d do at QB. The Broncos quarterback situation is back in the spotlight after Joe Flacco’s debacle of a performance in the 30-6 loss to the Chiefs last Thursday. Up ‘til this point the Flacco-stans have kept the wolves at bay with “he’s not the problem,” but even they can no longer ignore he’s certainly a big part of it. Which got me to bugging the rest of the Mile High Report staff: What have you thought of Joe Flacco’s play for the Broncos so...

Is it time to move Von? | Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports I asked the MHR gang if they’d consider moving the Broncos’ All-Time Sack Leader. ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed on Sunday what KOA’s Benjamin Allbright has been saying for a while now - teams have approached the Denver Broncos about Emmanuel Sanders. Then Allbright reported on Monday that the Houston Texans inquired about Chris Harris Jr. At this point it’s obvious John Elway is listening to offers for parts of the roster. This has led to rampant speculation the team could, and should move their most valuable trade chip:...
