HT: Onus for a win on Saturday falls on the Broncos’ offense

HT: Onus for a win on Saturday falls on the Broncos’ offense

Despite the defense’s pitfalls against the 49ers, let’s not forget which side of the ball couldn’t overcome just 20 points total. Good morning, Broncos Country! It seems much of the discussion and hand-wringing the past few days over the Broncos’ loss to the Niners has been about the poor defense - the 210 yards given up to one tight end, the early 20-point deficit, the penalties...oh the PENALTIES, PENALTIES, PENALTIES (sorry, go read “The Grinch” and you’ll get it). But little criticism has gone to the offense. An offense that did this on Sunday: Drive 1: three-and-out,...

Three up, three down from Broncos’ embarrassing loss to the Niners

Three up, three down from Broncos’ embarrassing loss to the Niners

Ryan Edwards, Andrew Mason and Steve Atwater give their best and worst from the game - and it’s both entertaining and cathartic. There is no sugar coating yesterday’s loss to the 49ers. It was about as ugly as it could get, rivaling the loss to the Jets earlier in the season. But given the “must-win” necessity of these final four games to have any chance at the playoffs - and that the Broncos are coming off a three-game win streak that had pundits talking about the Broncos as possibly the most threatening team in the playoffs - the Niners’ 20-13 victory is harder to swallow. So...

Ultimate Fan: Looking for lots of sacks, lots of scores from Broncos on Sunday

Ultimate Fan: Looking for lots of sacks, lots of scores from Broncos on Sunday

With a starting line-up full of rookies, nothing is guaranteed, but Broncos should be able to get a win in the Bay this weekend. It’s the final quarter of the regular season, and our MacGyver-patched team is looking to turn its three-game winning streak into four - and going against the 2-10 Niners may just be the way to do it. So even though our Ultimate Fan this week is super bummed that one of his faves is headed to IR, he’s counting on his other favorite veteran - No. 58 - to pull this team out of its .500 spot and keep the positive trend going (and if that doesn’t work exactly...

HT: Broncos’ ‘next man up’ mantra getting tested big-time

HT: Broncos’ ‘next man up’ mantra getting tested big-time

In a span of three days, Denver has lost two All-Pro starters in Chris Harris Jr. and Emmanuel Sanders. But the ‘next men up’ say they are ready for the challenge. Good morning, Broncos Country! The bad news about Emmanuel Sanders tearing his achilles hit hard in Broncos Country, but the locker room took it in stride as “next man up” mentality came out in full force. “Seeing Emmanuel go down was a very sad situation. The guy works his ass off. You all see it. Everybody sees it. You hate to see that for somebody in this position. He’s having a great season,” said rookie...

Lindsay named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for first time in his young career

Lindsay named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for first time in his young career

As the seventh Broncos rookie in history to earn the honor, the undrafted running back is blasting through accolades the way he blasts through linemen - with abandon. It had to happen eventually. One of these weeks the NFL was going to have to recognize that Phillip Lindsay is outplaying - or playing as well as - all the best guys on offense in the league. After multiple nominations this season for Rookie of the Week (including this week again), the running back was officially named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Denver’s 24-10 win against the Cincinnati Bengals,...

Young guys need to step up in Harris Jr.’s absence

Young guys need to step up in Harris Jr.’s absence

Vance Joseph tells Dave Logan on Orange & Blue Radio he has confidence his young secondary can meet the challenge. Although Sunday’s win was another gritty fight for the Broncos, the body count on the battlefield has left the team digging deep - as in deeeeeeep - in the secondary for the remaining four games of the season. Vance Joseph confirmed that the team is hopeful to get injured Chris Harris Jr. back for the Week 17 game against the Chargers, ruling out putting him on IR. The Broncos reported today that they will bring in former Cardinals cornerback Jamar Taylor for a physical to...

Broncos’ have unleashed a ‘pit bull’ - and he is on the attack

Broncos’ have unleashed a ‘pit bull’ - and he is on the attack

Phillip Lindsay’s toughness and humility has endeared himself to coaches, fans and teammates - but he’s still not getting to sit on the locker room couch. Before Phillip Lindsay was No. 30, he was No. 2. Just another rookie with a mostly random number that maybe the vets would pay attention to, maybe not. Domata Peko especially remembers No. 2 for the way he introduced himself to the team: “I’m Phillip Lindsay, I’m from Colorado and I went Colorado.” “It’s stuck in my head forever,” Peko said yesterday after the game, laughing as he retold the story. But the funniest part...

Ultimate Fan: Looking for Broncos defense to have a big day

Thanksgiving may be long gone, but our Ultimate Fan is expecting another big feast by this Broncos defense. WooHoo, Broncos Country! Our favorite team is 5-6, but somehow still in the playoff conversation, and I am convinced it is because of Ultimate Fans like you who have continually recognized the value in this team and more importantly the value in believing in this team. And this week’s ultimate fan - who came through in a pinch at the very single last minute possible because the original UFG is MIA - has some great advice for this team today...let’s hope the players are listening....

HT: Domata Peko ‘going home’ to help Broncos keep win streak alive

HT: Domata Peko ‘going home’ to help Broncos keep win streak alive

The former Cincinnati Bengals ‘big man in the middle’ is excited to go back to his former stomping grounds - and excited to beat his former team. Good morning, Broncos Country! Domata Peko will feel right at home Sunday when the Broncos descend upon Paul Brown Stadium to take on the Bengals and hopefully improve their winning streak to three. But it will be a little bittersweet. Peko, who was drafted in 2006 by the Bengals in the fourth round, played with Cincy for 11 seasons before signing with the Broncos in 2017. In his time with the Bengals, Peko was one of the leaders for a...

HT: Finding the soul of this 2018 Broncos squad

HT: Finding the soul of this 2018 Broncos squad

This team’s identity is coming from one player in particular. Good morning, Broncos Country! Every offseason/preseason, we like to talk about the “Broncos’ identity.” Will it feature a run-first or pass-heavy offense? Will it be a defensive juggernaut? Will the offense be creative and entertaining or will it be solid and efficient? (because in the offseason, of course, we only talk about positive identities.) And the evolution of that identity generally stems from the elite players making the greatest impact on the game. Often it’s the quarterback (a la Peyton Manning) or the...

Broncos find a groove with ‘winning formula’

Broncos find a groove with ‘winning formula’

Vance Joseph tells Dave Logan on Orange and Blue Radio that the team is seeing the benefits of creating turnovers but not giving any away. On the stat sheet, wins are wins and losses are losses. But there are losses that shouldn’t be - just as there are wins that should be. And then there are also wins that shouldn’t be but are. Wins like “Broncos 23, Chargers 22” and “Broncos 24, Steelers 17.” After multiple losses in which one or two plays could have meant a win instead of a heartbreaking loss for the Broncos, it was beautiful to see the team fight hard for two back-to-back...

Broncos take ‘bend don’t break’ to the limit in triumph over the Steelers

Broncos take ‘bend don’t break’ to the limit in triumph over the Steelers

Broncos bent pretty far - giving up huge yardage - but the only breaking on Sunday came from the Steelers. A Washington Post headline earlier this week read, “The new guide to NFL defense: Don’t worry about giving up big plays, just create your own.” It would appear that Joe Woods and his Broncos defense took that literally in its 24-17 triumph over the mighty Big Ben and his high-powered offense. “That was huge,” head coach Vance Joseph said, noting the game plan was to keep Antonio Brown from running away with the game. “We knew ‘19,’ Schuster, was going to make some plays...

Twitter mood is on fire over Broncos’ win

Twitter mood is on fire over Broncos’ win

A game-saving interception by new father Shelby Harris sealed the win for the Broncos and sealed the victory mood for Broncos Country! I’m not sure that win could have been any more fun. There were blocked kicks, fake field goals (grrrr), sacks, touchdowns, fumbles, fumble recoveries and interceptions. Especially one very amazing and timely interception from Shelby Harris. @ShelbyHarris93 with the pick to seal the deal! pic.twitter.com/xfcmCDK9q8— Denver Broncos (@Broncos) November 26, 2018 And if it weren’t for the Broncos’ defense coming up big on just about every series -...

Ultimate Fan: Broncos will end the Steelers’ winning streak on the road

You heard it here first (because only at the Ultimate Fan Guide are we brave enough to believe in winning). Oh, Broncos Country...you are in for a treat. This Ultimate Fan Guide from veteran UFG-er Todduscraig is like the pumpkin pie to your Thanksgiving dinner - so good and exactly what you wanted...even if you didn’t need it. But as we’ve come to expect around here, Broncos fans DO NEED the Ultimate Fan Guide to keep this fan base believing. And with Todduscraig, we definitely have a believer. Come for his great insight, stay for his hilarious analogies - and revel in his final score...
