The Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders both shake up their coaching staffs in the same week. The Denver Broncos play the Oakland Raiders this weekend and now both teams will have to contend with two brand new coordinators.

Big change.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 21, 2017 In a unique turn of events, two brand new coordinators will be charged with creating...

Broncos-Raiders odds: Denver opens five-point underdogs to Oakland

Broncos-Raiders odds: Denver opens five-point underdogs to Oakland

The Denver Broncos are 5-point underdogs in their Week 12 matchup at the Oakland Raiders. The Denver Broncos (3-7) have opened 5.5-point underdogs on the road against the Oakland Raiders (4-6) in Week 12. The line has since moved down a half point, but the Raiders are still heavily favored to win this week. The rivalry between these two teams has been tight since 2015, with teams splitting their season series in each of the last two seasons. The Broncos took the first game back in Week 4, which was also the last time they won a game. With Denver taking a six-game losing streak into...

The Broncos run defense bounced back nicely against Bengals

The Broncos run defense bounced back nicely against Bengals

According to Pro Football Focus, the Denver Broncos defensive line was stout against the Cincinnati Bengals. After getting run roughshod for two weeks ago by the Philadelphia Eagles, the Denver Broncos defense held the New England Patriots to 99-yards rushing. Not great, but okay. This week, the run defense bounced back with a dominating performance against the Cincinnati Bengals. They held Joe Mixon to 49 yards on 20 carries for a paltry 2.9 yards per carry. The Bengals tried to get Giovani Bernard involved too, but he was held to minus four yards on three carries. According to Pro...

Brandon Marshall gives Vance Joseph a vote of confidence

Brandon Marshall gives Vance Joseph a vote of confidence

The Denver Broncos are sticking with Vance Joseph as they should with a first-year head coach. Any time there is a major shakeup during the season as there was on Monday with Vance Joseph and the Denver Broncos firing offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, people on the outside will start wondering if more firings are to follow. A first-year head coach like Joseph isn’t likely going to have a lot of time to get the ship right and some positive football out of his players. And if you think he has lost the locker room, you would be sorely mistaken. The players are as frustrated as the head coach...

Ronald Leary says Mike McCoy fell on the sword for teams poor execution

Ronald Leary says Mike McCoy fell on the sword for teams poor execution

Ronald Leary was hesitant to place any blame on Mike McCoy. With the Denver Broncos firing offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Monday, the shockwaves of that decision would easily be the biggest news story of the day. Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro of The Afternoon Drive discussed the fallout with offensive guard Ronald Leary. Leary wasn’t keen on placing any blame on McCoy and even noted that he fell on the sword for their poor play. Shapiro went on quite a good rant after the interview that I felt was about as spot on as it could get for how playcalling and scheming could very well be the...

Falcons at Seahawks - Monday Night Football Live Blog

The Atlanta Falcons face a tough opponent in the Seattle Seahawks on the road in a critical NFC matchup. The Atlanta Falcons (5-4) are currently on the outside looking in on the NFC playoff picture, but a win over the Seattle Seahawks (6-3) would catapult them into that 6th seed spot as they would hold tiebreakers over both the Detroit Lions and the Seahawks at that point. No win would be more important for the Falcons in a tough NFC this year. Falcons vs. Seahawks live blog The Falcoholic Field Gulls Tweets from https://twitter.com/MileHighReport/lists/broncos-gameday

John Elway has failed to draft well and team is now suffering from that

John Elway has failed to draft well and team is now suffering from that

If this team is ‘soft’ then you have John Elway to thank for that. Late last week, John Elway threw down the gauntlet by calling his team ‘soft’. After another tough loss - and their sixth in a row - players either were angry about it or agreed with him. Von Miller said Elway was telling the truth. As did Demaryius Thomas. As did Domata Peko. Miller also bristled at the thought of himself being seen as soft. As did Chris Harris Jr. As did Brandon Marshall. The point here is that Elway’s remarks had an impact and after another loss the team is generally unhappy about it. That...

Report: Broncos have fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy

Sources indicated that changes might be coming and after sixth straight loss, those changes arrived. According to Ian Rapoport, the Denver Broncos have fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. Source: The #Broncos have fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 20, 2017 Sources last week indicated that frustration with McCoy’s offensive scheme had been mounting. After another disappointing loss and a complete lack of offensive creativity, John Elway and Vance Joseph made the move to fire McCoy. With Paxton Lynch likely coming into the fold, the...

Von Miller on John Elway calling team soft: ‘He’s telling the truth’

Von Miller on John Elway calling team soft: ‘He’s telling the truth’

Sometimes a spade is a spade. Von Miller thinks the team has developed into a ‘soft’ football team. When the President of Football Operations and General Manager comes out and calls his own team “got a little bit soft”, you would expect that teams players to take issue with it. Von Miller is the Denver Broncos biggest star and though he wished it wasn’t true, he cannot deny what you see on film. “He’s the head guy. His comments—he’s the boss,” Miller said of Elway’s comments. “That’s what he said. He said it. I was kind of taken back by it, which you should be. If...

Video: Bengals patiently waited for Broncos to beat themselves

Video: Bengals patiently waited for Broncos to beat themselves

Brandon Perna of That’s Good Broncos called it right saying all the Cincinnati Bengals had to do was wait for the Denver Broncos to beat themselves. All the Cincinnati Bengals had to do to beat the Denver Broncos 20-17 was to patiently wait for their opponent to beat themselves. In another frustratingly maddening way, Denver found a loss in a game they could have won. Brandon Perna from That’s Good Broncos broke down this fairly typical and annoying type of game for Denver in 2017 in a way that is at least mildly comical. Mildly comical could also be used to describe the Broncos season.

C.J. Anderson devastated over fourth quarter fumble

C.J. Anderson devastated over fourth quarter fumble

One thing C.J. Anderson has a lot of is heart. He put it all out there in this one. The Denver Broncos seem to have things go wrong in very different ways during their six-game losing streak, but this fumble by C.J. Anderson against the Cincinnati Bengals was the death blow for them in their latest loss. Anderson was shaken to the bone by this one. Vontaze Burfict put his helmet in the perfect spot and there was little Anderson could have done differently to change the outcome of this play, but that didn’t matter. A devastated CJ Anderson on his fumble in the fourth:"This shit hurts...

Broncos playoffs chances are over

Broncos playoffs chances are over

No team has ever made the playoffs after starting a season 3-7. If you are still hoping against hope the Denver Broncos can surge back into playoff contention, you should take a quick history lesson. There have been around a hundred teams that have started a season 3-7 and not a single one of them has ever made the playoffs. These Denver Broncos will not be the one that does either. It is time for Broncos Country to accept those facts and embrace the very real possibility of a tanking to a top pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Right now, the Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers, and New York...

With Broncos 20-17 loss to Bengals, it is time to embrace the tank

With Broncos 20-17 loss to Bengals, it is time to embrace the tank

The Denver Broncos controlled the entire game against the Cincinnati Bengals and still lost 20-17. It is time to embrace the tank. The Denver Broncos can find no answers to their woes as they fall 20-17 to the equally bad Cincinnati Bengals at home. The way they lost is just a microcosm of their 2017 season in which mistakes and bad luck just kills all chances of victory. At 3-7, the Broncos join a mile-long list of teams in the past who missed the playoffs. No team has made the playoffs when starting a season 3-7. It’s on to 2018 for the Broncos at this point. We should expect Paxton...

Broncos-Bengals third quarter update: Denver is closing the gap on Cincinnati

Broncos-Bengals third quarter update: Denver is closing the gap on Cincinnati

The Denver Broncos are slowly chipping away at the Cincinnati Bengals lead as they head into the fourth quarter down 13-10. The Denver Broncos saw Adam Gotsis bat an Andy Dalton pass down on first down. A.J. Green was wide open over the middle for a huge gain too, so the batted pass was huge. Joe Mixon was stuffed on second down for a loss to setup a third and long. Dalton on third and twelve, went to Tyler Kroft underneath for a ten yard gain and a punt from the Cincinnati Bengals. That was the fourth three and out the Broncos defense had forced against the Bengals out of seven total...

Broncos-Bengals second quarter update: Cincinnati takes a lead into halftime over Denver

Well the Denver Broncos did have a lead after the first quarter, but the Cincinnati Bengals took it back heading into the second half. The Cincinnati Bengals finally got their first third down conversion on their next drive, following by a huge pass from Andy Dalton to Brandon LaFell for a 25-yard gain. Two plays later on third and three, Dalton hit Alex Erickson who burned Bradley Roby down the sideline for an easy touchdown reception to give the lead back to the Bengals. Hell of a TD throw by Andy Dalton to Alex Erickson. Bengals take 13-7 lead. pic.twitter.com/wHkbmMJvhF— Josh...
