Tale of the Tape: The Broncos defense has been lights out on 3rd down

Tale of the Tape: The Broncos defense has been lights out on 3rd down

Now let’s just take some of that into 1st and 2nd down. In the NFL, third down is the money down. This is where good quarterbacks separate themselves from great ones, and where defenses show what they’re made of. One of my favorite interviews I’ve listened to is one Peter King did with David Shaw, head football coach at Stanford, last year. In it, Shaw was talking about the difference in the college game and the NFL and made this remark about playing QB in the NFL. “It’s 3rd down and it’s red zone. That’s their whole world. It’s 3rd down and red zone when it comes to...

Simon Fletcher sees great potential in Bradley Chubb

The Broncos career sack leader joins the Orange and Blue 760 guys to talk Broncos defense, and how Bradley Chubb has looked so far. Simon Fletcher knows a thing or two about rushing the passer, and what it takes to be a great pass rusher. The Broncos all-time sack leader, who amassed 97.5 sacks in his NFL career, joined the Orange and Blue 760 1st and 10 at 10 crew this morning to talk Broncos defense. I think Bradley Chubb going to be the guy we’re talking about when Von Miller is near the end of his career in a few years. Fletcher was asked his thoughts on the Broncos first round pick...

Tale of the Tape: Strategy for slowing down Jared Cook

Tale of the Tape: Strategy for slowing down Jared Cook

Denver will have its hands full against the Raiders’ athletic tight end. The Broncos will have their hands full today as they try to slow down the Raiders biggest offensive weapon, who also happens to play a position Denver has historically struggled to stop - tight end Jared Cook. Cook started off the year with a bang as he racked up nine catches on 12 targets for 180 yards in the Raiders’ loss to the Rams (As it turns out, Wade Phillips’ defenses haven’t gotten any better at stopping tight ends). “We can’t walk in here on Monday and say we didn’t contain him. If we don’t...

Shelby Harris: Defense not satisfied with Sunday’s performance

Shelby Harris: Defense not satisfied with Sunday’s performance

The un-drafted defensive lineman echoed Vance Joseph’s comments, that they were happy with the win, but knew they could play better. Shelby Harris is a serious dude. He joined the guys over at Orang and Blue 760 today to talk about the defense’s feelings on Sunday’s win. “I feel like we did a pretty good job containing them and getting after them, but after watching the film I feel like there was so many more chances that we could’ve capitalized on, so it’s encouraging but we’re not satisfied at all.” This is on the heels of a performance that saw the Seahawks held to under...

Broncos vs. Seahawks: Handing out mulligans

While Denver still came away with a win, there’s a few plays they would love to have back. The Denver Broncos came away with a nice win in an up-and-down game that saw plenty of turnovers and big plays for both teams. While we don’t want to look a gift Bronco in the mouth, there were a few plays that both the offense and defense would like to have back. Here’s the two biggest mulligans of the game. Offense Broncos QB Case Keenum after his first victory in Denver (and those three picks): "A couple of bad reads and trying to make the big play when I don't have too ... That's...

Emmanuel Sanders poised to thrive in the slot this season

Emmanuel Sanders poised to thrive in the slot this season

With additional wide receiver depth this year, Denver has the luxury of moving Sanders to where he is most effective. As the team releases their first official 53-man roster and depth chart, we are taking a look at guys who have been locked in from the start and are poised to make a big impact this season. Since the 3rd preseason game is typically the closest to the regular season schematically and from a snaps perspective, we are using that tape for this series. Last week we examined Justin Simmons and where he has been lining up, this week Keenum’s favorite target, Emmanuel Sanders is...

Tales from the Tape: Justin Simmons, the do-it-all DB, is looking good this preseason

The versatile defender is poised for a Pro Bowl year in his third season with the Denver Broncos. Regular season play is nearly here! The time we have been waiting patiently for is almost upon us! But what shall we do to entertain ourselves until then? There’s plenty to talk about from a roster construction standpoint as the fourth preseason game approaches and the bubble players vie for a few final spots on the 53-man roster, but I want to focus on the guys whose roster spots are not only safe, but are poised to make a big impact for the Denver Broncos in 2018. So, I’m slightly...

Who are your predictions for best performances tomorrow night?

Who are your predictions for best performances tomorrow night?

Who do you foresee as having a breakout game, or outstanding performance? Our very own Tim Lynch joined the Orange and Blue 760’s First and 10 show this morning to talk a host of Broncos topics (check it out in the link above). One of the questions I really found interesting was a bit of a game the First and 10 crew has been playing before each preseason game and mock drafting a player on offense and defense, and seeing how they perform in that game. Essentially it’s posing the question, who would you bet has a big game? So we’re going to try our hand at it as well. Here at Mile High...
