The Broncos lost to the NFL, and the Saints

The Broncos lost to the NFL, and the Saints

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ The competitive balance was stripped from the game, and Denver never had a real chance. I am not going to break down the Broncos loss to the Saints. I see no value in it. What I will do, is praise the players on the field. In a situation that was completely outside the realm of normalcy, they went out and did their jobs. Kendall Hinton is the guy who gets most of the accolades. He deserves them. Imagine how he must have felt. Now multiply it by a million and you might be halfway there. Every player for the Broncos stepped up. They rallied...

NFL turns Saints vs. Broncos into clown show

NFL turns Saints vs. Broncos into clown show

Steve Russell/Toronto Star via What a joke. For as long as I have been a football fan, I have always had faith that the NFL would do it’s best to ensure competitive balance from game-to-game and year-to-year. It’s one of the many reasons why we enjoy compensatory picks, a draft order tied to the previous year’s finish, and a salary cap. It’s the reason that football enjoys its place as crown jewel atop the American sports landscape. While the Broncos quarterbacks are certainly at fault for their non-adherence to COVID-19 safety protocols, what the NFL did in...

3 winners, 4 losers from the Broncos 31-3 loss to the Saints (that shouldn’t have been played)

3 winners, 4 losers from the Broncos 31-3 loss to the Saints (that shouldn’t have been played)

Photo by AAron Ontiveroz/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via Well done, NFL. Your message was delivered loud and clear (not). Still, massive props to Kendall Hinton. The fact that this game was even played is a farce. Yes, Drew Lock and the Denver Broncos quarterbacks didn’t do enough. As Andrew Mason tweeted, they still had an in-person meeting after the NFL went to intensive COVID-19 protocols. And? What about the Baltimore Ravens? New England Patriots? Tennessee Titans? It’s clear the NFL wanted to send a message to the other 31 teams through the...

2 things you may have learned from the Broncos debacle against the Saints

2 things you may have learned from the Broncos debacle against the Saints

Turns out QB5 ain’t QB1 for a reason. | Photo by Matthew Stockman/ A Denver Broncos game that should have never happened resulted in a predictable 31-3 blowout loss. The Saints came into today chasing the number one seed in the NFC. The Broncos came into it without their top four quarterbacks thanks to exposure to Covid-19. Thanks to the late news about ineligible quarterbacks, there was no way to bring in any outside help because of Covid-19 protocols. At one point the coaching staff asked the NFL if Justin Rascati or Rob Calabrese could play quarterback in the...

New Orleans Saints easily beat QB-less Denver Broncos, 31-3

New Orleans Saints easily beat QB-less Denver Broncos, 31-3

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports The Denver Broncos tried to compete without a viable starting quarterback, but in a quarterback-driven league the outcome was predictable. There was some attempt by the local media and team to generate some hype for Kendall Hinton coming in at the last minute to start for the Denver Broncos, but it was a tall order for a former college quarterback turned wide receiver. He played well considering he had no practice and no time before the game started on Sunday. The New Orleans Saints have quarterback issues of their own, but their entire...

Week 12: Saints at Broncos - Live updates

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports The Denver Broncos will take on the New Orleans Saints in Week 12. Follow us here for live updates throughout the game. The Denver Broncos will host the New Orleans Saints in Week 12. The Broncos lost all of their quarterbacks due to COVID-19 violations and exposure to Jeff Driskel who tested positive last week. That left the team with an emergency action of activating wide receiver turned quarterback Kendall Hinton for this game. In-game updates Preview In all sorts of bad, the Broncos quarterback room made a huge mistake by taking...

Saints at Broncos gameday inactives list for Week 12

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports The Denver Broncos, despite losing all of their quarterbacks due to COVID-19 concerns, got some good news on the injury front with all of their ‘questionable’ players active for their game versus the New Orleans Saints today. The included wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, cornerback Bryce Callahan, tackle Demar Dotson, guard Graham Glasgow, linebacker Joe Jones, and nose tackle Sylvester Williams. They’ll need every player they can get to compete with the 8-2 Saints as they roll with Kindall Henton who hasn’t started a game at...

7 things I would have watched for in the Broncos game with the Saints if this wasn’t 2020

7 things I would have watched for in the Broncos game with the Saints if this wasn’t 2020

Can Von Miller take down Drew Brees? | Photo by Dustin Bradford/ This was going to be perhaps the best game of the Broncos season if it hadn’t gone so far off the rails. Due to their high risk exposure to Covid-19, every quarterback on the Broncos’ roster will not play against the Saints today. If the news broke as late as Wednesday, I would think Pat Shurmur and the coaching staff could scrape together something sort of resembling a functional offense with Royce Freeman, Kendall Hinton, or even Phillip Lindsay. They found out last night. What’s probably going...

Garett Bolles strives to be the best in the NFL

Garett Bolles strives to be the best in the NFL

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports The Broncos left tackle situation might be the best in the NFL. Bolles got rewarded with a 4-year contract extension and he still wants to be the best. Doubt him if you dare. Good morning, Broncos Country! I was wrong. And never have I been happier to admit that. But this isn’t about me, it’s about a young man who didn’t listen to the doubters like me. Garett Bolles is one of the best left tackles in the NFL. You could make the argument he is the best left tackle in the NFL. There was both hope and doubt that he would stay in...

Broncos sign tackle Garett Bolles to four-year extension

Broncos sign tackle Garett Bolles to four-year extension

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports The once maligned left tackle has completely turned things around in 2020. So much so that the Denver Broncos have locked him down for another four years. Back on May 1st, the Denver Broncos declined to pick up the fifth-year option for Garett Bolles after the former 2017 first-round pick was among the league’s most penalized player in every year he played in the league. Many on the outside assumed that if Mike Munchak couldn’t fix Bolles’ penalty issues then no one could. All Munchak needed, however, was more time. Ten games...

Ultimate Fan: Fangio’s defense will stop Payton’s offense for a Broncos’ win

Photo by Billie Weiss/ There will be nothing easy about getting a W, but building on last week’s consistency will be a good start. Coming off a win over Miami, Broncos Country is feeling more optimistic about the team’s potential - even way Down Under where this week’s Ultimate Fan follows his favorite team. Playing the experienced Saints was always going to be a tough matchup for the young Broncos, but with Drew Brees still out for injury, the window of opportunity has opened a tiny bit wider, and our mate jmac-31 sees the Broncos taking advantage.

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports The Denver Broncos are fresh off a win and will host the 8-2 New Orleans Saints in Week 12. Can they pull off the upset over an NFC powerhouse? After a two game skid, we were especially down on the Denver Broncos last week in this predictions post with just one of us predicting a win over the Miami Dolphins (toot toot on my horn with that one!). Now this week we may be more optimistic than we should be as they host the 8-2 New Orleans Saints. As a group, we are predicting more wins than losses here, but the wins are all super close...
