Vance Joseph: ‘We gave Raiders’ offense too much respect’

Vance Joseph: ‘We gave Raiders’ offense too much respect’

It was earned respect, but Joseph admitted on Orange and Blue Radio that the Broncos’ backend defense played too soft. Vance Joseph knows what went wrong with the defense on Sunday. Call it the Aretha Franklin Effect. Too. Much. R-E-S-P-E-C-T to the Raiders’ offense. “We gave those guys a lot of respect. ...It was earned respect, but we can’t play that way because we’re not built to play that way,” coach Vance Joseph told Dave Logan on Orange and Blue Radio’s First & 10 @ 10 podcast. “We have a great pass rush. The two times we made [Derek Carr] hold the ball, we actually...

Broncos fight through bad play for huge comeback win, big confidence boost

Broncos fight through bad play for huge comeback win, big confidence boost

Offense dug deep and defense held strong to pull out a victory in spite of slow start. Von Miller has a new nickname for his quarterback. Case Key-Man. Well, he’s trying to make it a nickname. “That’s our guy, ‘The Case Keeman.’ I love that guy,” Miller said. “I know his name is Keenum. It was just a joke. Nobody laughed, but it’s all good.” What wasn’t a joke was how key Keenum actually was to the comeback in the second half yesterday. “[Raiders] played good football in the first half, and we didn’t. We had to be more aggressive — take more shots down the field...

Broncos react on Twitter to their clutch win over Raiders

Broncos react on Twitter to their clutch win over Raiders

When you beat a rival by one point with clutch play at the end...there’s a lot of celebrating to be done. Holy Comeback Batman! FINAL: @Broncos complete the comeback! #BroncosCountry #OAKvsDEN pic.twitter.com/YspaUKdvXJ— NFL (@NFL) September 16, 2018 I predicted a much bigger win by the Broncos over these Raiders, but I did say on two different radio programs last week that you never count out a division rival. Never. Combining some bad Broncos play in the first half and some solid Raiders play all game long - plus a ton of poor ref play - this game came down to a clutch drive by...

Ultimate Fan: Broncos take care of business against the Raiders

Ultimate Fan: Broncos take care of business against the Raiders

It’s Broncos-Raiders Rivalry Week Part I - and even if Von is giving Raiders props, Shasta77 knows which team will dominate. The Broncos are 1-0 and ready to start their domination in the AFC West by beating the Raiders at home in Week 2. It’s going to be a scorcher at Mile High, but the heat in the stands won’t be nearly as intense as the fire on the field. To ring in “Beat The Raiders Part I,” we have the one and only shasta77 to increase our football IQs as well as get our hatred for the Raiders in the proper place. And be sure not to skip shasta’s tribute to his father, the...

Von Miller on Raiders’ O-line: Best in the NFL

Von Miller on Raiders’ O-line: Best in the NFL

Add to that Derek Carr’s ability to get rid of the ball quick, and it’s going to be a challenge for the Broncos’ defense. Assuming the offense does it thing again - extending drives, scoring points but this time avoiding turnovers - the key to beating the Raiders will be stopping Derek Carr and his handful of offensive weapons. Carr, who passed for more than 300 yards but threw three interceptions against the Rams, is no slouch. But he’s also easily rattled. “As long as coverage is tight, [getting rid of the ball quick] can be an advantage for us too. We’re a more aggressive...

HT: Stopping Jared Cook and Marshawn Lynch begins with decent tackling

HT: Stopping Jared Cook and Marshawn Lynch begins with decent tackling

Otherwise it could be a really long day for the Broncos’ defense. Good morning, Broncos Country! In the midst of the Raiders’ 33-13 meltdown against the L.A. Rams last week, one player remained unfazed and just charged through the mighty Rams’ defense without abandon - tight end Jared Cook. The 10-year veteran torched the Wade Phillips-led Rams defense with 180 yards on nine catches - which, for the math majors, is a 20-yard average on each catch. That would seem like an amazing day for the tight end and an embarrassing one for the Rams’ defense...until you read the Broncos’ stat...

Case Keenum’s greatest stat in win over the Seahawks? Rebounds.

Case Keenum’s greatest stat in win over the Seahawks? Rebounds.

His three interceptions on the day were ugly, but his ability to come back strong in spite of them was definitely not. Perhaps the most impressive part of Case Keenum’s official Broncos’ debut on Sunday was not his three touchdowns to help erase his three interceptions. It was the fact that he still led the Broncos in scoring touchdowns despite throwing those interceptions. Basically, Keenum wasn’t afraid. And that confidence to sling it again paid big dividends, most evident in the fourth quarter when the Broncos were down 24-20, and Keenum had already turned the ball over nearly...

Von Miller is a one-man wrecking machine

Von Miller is a one-man wrecking machine

Even No. 58’s teammates are amazed by his ability. One of Von Miller’s newest teammates nailed it when describing the edge rusher’s performance against the Seahawks - and specifically against its elite QB. “Von is a monster — he’s a man among boys out here,” said Adam Jones, who joined the Broncos’ defense two weeks ago and got to see first-hand what a difference maker Miller is in the game. And that includes having played with DeMarcus Ware and Jevon Kearse. “Von is a monster — he’s a man among boys out here.” - Adam Jones “But Von Miller is by far the best...

Broncos players react to Week 1 win over Seahawks

Led by an MVP-esque performance by Von Miller, you could say the team was ‘lit’ today. Annnnnndddddd...WIN No. 1 is in the books. How’s that W taste, Broncos Country? For the seventh consecutive season, the @broncos eat the W in Week 1. pic.twitter.com/hYnb6bmfuD— Andrew Mason (@MaseDenver) September 10, 2018 Yep, pretty damn good. It was a typical Broncos game in that it came down to the wire, and it was the defense that had to hold on for the victory, but for the first time in many, many games, there was confidence that the offense - even in spite of mistakes - could win...

A tough opening matchup, but our Ultimate Fan predicts victory over the Seahawks

A tough opening matchup, but our Ultimate Fan predicts victory over the Seahawks

But of course he does...what Ultimate Fan wouldn’t? WOO HOO!!! We have made it. We have survived arguably the longest offseason ever and have finally made it to real football and talking about actual games, and we are doing it with our fan base mostly together and behind this team and ready to win. Whew. I cannot tell you how awesome that feels (other than, awesome enough to write a run-on sentence)! But I don’t even have to tell you because we all feel it, and it is the perfect way to launch the 2018 Ultimate Fan Guide Week 1 matchup. And I truly can’t think of a better fan to do it...

Containing Russell Wilson (still) won’t be easy

Containing Russell Wilson (still) won’t be easy

Unfortunately, the seventh-year mobile QB has probably only gotten more elusive. The Denver Broncos are familiar with Russell Wilson. Too familiar. 43-8 is a score we all wish we could forget. And now four years after that train wreck, it would be nice to think the Seahawks’ mobile QB had lost a step heading into his seventh year. Sorry. FAKE NEWS. In fact, if anything, Wilson could be more dangerous because he has developed his passing game in recent years, making him a more legit dual threat with his legs and arm. “Oh man. I’ll tell you what. I don’t think any pass rusher likes...

Vance Joseph settling in to Year 2

Vance Joseph settling in to Year 2

The inexperienced head coach enters his second season with the Broncos more confident in himself and more knowledgeable about the role. Good morning, Broncos Country! Vance Joseph has been a favorite punching bag around Broncos Country. And that hasn’t been without merit. Going 5-11 doesn’t go over well in Denver. But the scorn by Broncos fans was never completely fair either. After all, it wasn’t like Joseph walked into a great situation. He walked into a floundering team that had barely escaped a losing record the prior season, had no clear direction at the most important position...

Broncos’ Dymonte Thomas confident in increased role at safety

Broncos’ Dymonte Thomas confident in increased role at safety

Once upon time, the Broncos’ undrafted free agent in 2017 was on the outside looking in to a crowded safety’s room. Now he’s No. 4 and a key part of the secondary. Everything had been looking good for new Broncos’ safety Su’a Cravens after his Broncos’ debut against the Cardinals last week. Making a big tackle that even knocked his helmet off, Cravens got up just fine and jogged off the field, saying later how good it felt to get a tackle in after more than a year away from football. But a swollen knee two days later revealed the need for a scope and a placement on Injured...

Report: Broncos cut outside linebacker Jeff Holland

Report: Broncos cut outside linebacker Jeff Holland

A lot of Broncos fans are not going to be happy about this one. According to 9NEWS Denver’s Mike Klis, the Denver Broncos have waived 2018 undrafted free agent Jeff Holland. Broncos waived rookie OLB Jeff Holland, per source. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) September 1, 2018 The outside linebacker could still clear waivers and be a likely candidate for the practice squad, but there was interest in him from other teams, so there’s also a chance Holland is on a different team by Sunday. I doubt OLB Jeff Holland will make it through waivers. He generated interest before the...

Cravens, Jones prove their worth during final preseason game

Cravens, Jones prove their worth during final preseason game

The fourth preseason game is generally reserved for backups playing for a spot, but Su’a Cravens and Adam Jones needed to show they were worth the gamble. And they did. Two veteran defenders who had to prove themselves in last night’s preseason finale did exactly what they needed to do - showed they’ve still got it. Playing in their first preseason game for the Broncos, Su’a Cravens and Adam Jones both came out of the gate raring to go - and although their stats were thin, their impact was solid. Jones’ first play on the field was a 22-yard kick return, which he followed up with...
