Broncos need to unleash the Orange Rush

Broncos need to unleash the Orange Rush

Here are our other keys to Sunday’s game to ensure the Broncos leave Baltimore 3-0. Two games, two come-from-behind wins for Case Keenum and the Denver Broncos. Is Broncos Country set for a reboot of 2015, where it feels as if you just finished a marathon when the games are over? As Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann said after Denver’s 20-19 win over the Oakland Raiders last Sunday, “Need to get my John-Elway-80s-Broncos defibrillator out of the closet.” Now comes the first road test of the 2018 season for Keenum and the Broncos (2-0). That comes on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens...

Phillip Lindsay quickly becoming a hero in Broncos underdog story

Phillip Lindsay quickly becoming a hero in Broncos underdog story

Shaquil Barrett and Tim Patrick are also part of the underdog story that is enthralling Broncos fans this season In the wide world of sports, the underdog is always the best story. We can’t resist the athletes or teams who have “no shot,” yet find a way to shine despite the apparent insurmountable odds. Perhaps we find a human connection in the sentiment that the athletes are right off the street. Regardless, a good underdog story will always climb to the top of the bestseller list. There’s a catch — as long as it’s natural. There are times it’s forced. Fans want so badly for...

7 winners, 4 losers and 1 “both” from Broncos exhilarating win

7 winners, 4 losers and 1 “both” from Broncos exhilarating win

Once again, Phillip Lindsay leaves a huge impact and proceeds to make NFL history in the Broncos win. There is no such thing as an ugly win. When the Denver Broncos do it against the hated Oakland Raiders, that is especially true. The Broncos are 2-0 after the latest version of Mile High magic brought a pulsating 20-19 win on Sunday. Meanwhile, Jon Gruden and Oakland fall to 0-2. Winners Case Keenum After a forgettable first half and another horrible interception, Keenum stepped up in the second half in a major way. When his team needed it, he delivered another game-winning drive. This...

Demaryius Thomas excited for turnover-free Broncos offense

Demaryius Thomas excited for turnover-free Broncos offense

The Denver receiver was on Friday’s 1st & 10 @ 10 and he said the Broncos can be a dangerous team without the turnovers. You could hear the excitement in his voice. It’s safe to say fans of the Denver Broncos had the same reaction as Demaryius Thomas when they think about the prospects this week. How good can this offense be if the offense eliminates the turnovers? As Andrew Mason pointed out in his question to the Broncos receiver on Friday’s 1st & 10 @ 10 on Orange and Blue 760, the offense still put up 470 yards, 324 in the air and 146 on the ground. If Case Keenum gets rid of...

How do the Broncos continue the early season success?

How do the Broncos continue the early season success?

Here’s what we think the Broncos need to do to beat the hated Raiders and improve to 2-0. There was a time this game was circled on the schedule. For the more seasoned fans of the Denver Broncos, that’s still the case. No matter the amount of time that passes or the two franchises change, the games against the Oakland Raiders still matter the most. It’s officially Raider Week. And right on cue: Fuck the Raiders! But there is an aspect about the 2018 edition of this classic rivalry that is both marvelous and hilarious. Perhaps it’s the return of Jon Gruden. To a lesser extent,...

Phillip Lindsay continues to shine Broncos

Phillip Lindsay continues to shine Broncos

By now this shouldn’t surprise people since he’s done this in every chapter of his football story. Phillip Lindsay went undrafted. By all 32 teams in the NFL. Whenever the rookie running back shines, as he has since arriving at the UCHealth Training Center, just remember that little diddy. As Vic Lombardi said on Twitter, do the teams get cable? MHR’s Taylor Kothe’s tweet nicely laid out Lindsay’s debut for the Denver Broncos. The top two stat lines for offensive rookies in Week 1 (combining receptions & rushes): Saquon Barkley: 20 touches for 128 combined yards and one...

6 winners, 3 losers and 1 “both” from Broncos 27-24 win

6 winners, 3 losers and 1 “both” from Broncos 27-24 win

This is just one game in a marathon to 16, but there is a lot to take away from this ... a lot of it positive. As the cliche goes, a win is a win. But it feels like there’s something more to this 27-24 season-opening win over the Seattle Seahawks. It was far from pretty, but the Denver Broncos showed this isn’t the same team of the last two seasons. No matter the situation, they don’t get too high or too low. They are prepared for whatever happens and have the confidence to come out on top. I get that this is just one game on a marathon path to 16. It’s also the first, but there is...

Here is a look back at the history of the rivalry, as well as news and notes for today’s game courtesy of Denver’s weekly release. Good morning, Broncos Country! If you didn’t awake from your slumber like a kid on Christmas morning, you aren’t human. The only question now is this: What present will we get from the Denver Broncos? You know fans will represent as they always do, decked out in orange while pounding out the Rocky Mountain Thunder. Speaking of “Orange Sunday,” this also is our first glimpse at the Orange Rush (Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, Shaquil Barrett and Shane...

Don’t forget about Denver Broncos rookie DaeSean Hamilton

Don’t forget about Denver Broncos rookie DaeSean Hamilton

As Sunday’s opener against the Seahawks inches closer, the focus has been on the Big Three (Freeman, Sutton and Chubb). Hamilton could have a big impact too. The excitement continues to build and build as the season inches closer. As it does, there is added anticipation for the Denver Broncos rookies. It seems the focus is on three, Royce Freeman, Courtland Sutton and Bradley Chubb (that includes the Orange Rush. Seriously, fans need to get this majestic shirt). With how all three have shined since training camp and throughout the preseason, you understand why. Meanwhile, there’s...

Keys to the Broncos season opener

Keys to the Broncos season opener

Here are the MHR staff’s keys to the Week One game. High on the list is running the ball and stopping the run on defense. The Case Keenum Era is upon us. After much hypothesis and speculation, we’ll get our first indication if the Denver Broncos are, in fact, on the right path. It is just the season opener but it feels so much bigger than that. After the last two seasons, fans are excited about the prospects of the 2018 season. What they saw in the third preseason game added fuel to the fire of what they heard throughout training camp. Yet the doubt remains. The excitement is tempered...

HT: Twitter reacts to Khalil Mack trade

The Raiders traded the defensive end to the Bears. It’s Christmas in September. Good morning, Broncos Country! When Denver Broncos fans awoke from their slumber on Saturday morning, they were given the best present. Come to think of it, it happened again this morning. Khalil Mack has been traded. No really. It really, really happened. It’s Christmas in September. Thank you to Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders for this thoughtful gift. You didn’t need to do it, so it shows how much you really care. We will ensure that we repay you for years to come by keeping you in the dregs of the...

6 winners, 3 losers from Broncos 21-10 win over Cardinals

Here are the players who made the roster decisions for John Elway a little tougher ... and a little easier. The last preseason game is always a mix of emotions. Fans know the game is meaningless, but in the same refrain, it means so much to the guys who want to keep their dream alive. In that sense, it at least gives the game some intrigue. After Thursday night’s 21-10 win against the Arizona Cardinals, here are the players who made the roster decisions for John Elway and the Denver Broncos a little tougher. This also includes the guys who didn’t help themselves. Winners Team...

HT: Broncos rookies defying the odds so far

HT: Broncos rookies defying the odds so far

What started out as hope that Denver nailed this draft has turned into, “how the hell did Elway hit on just about every pick?” Good morning, Broncos Country! All 32 organizations are hopeful they nail their NFL Drafts. That is typically measured by a team “hitting” on its upper-round selections who contribute right away as a starter or significant backup. To earn that rare distinction teams must also get production or steals in the later rounds. To put this in simpler terms: What the New Orleans Saints did in their draft last year. In the immediate follow up to this year’s...

Mr. B is a finalist for the HOF

Mr. B is a finalist for the HOF

Clearing this initial hurdle is the closest he’s gotten so far to being inducted into the Hall of Fame. As the old Southern adage goes, “Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit!” The Pro Football Hall of Fame contributors committee didn’t screw this up (again). Howard Balzer, Clark Judge, Peter King, Jim Trotter and Charean Williams actually chose Pat Bowlen as one of its two candidates to move on to the full selection committee. Yes, really. They honestly did. Forgive Denver Broncos fans if they were skeptical this would turn into the slam dunk it ended up being. When it comes...
