Report: Broncos will note exercise contract option for Brandon Marshall

Report: Broncos will note exercise contract option for Brandon Marshall

Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall will now be a free agent on March 13 after the team refused to exercise his option for 2019. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Denver Broncos have notified linebacker Brandon Marshall that they will not be exercising his contract option for 2019. The move will make Marshall a free agent in March. The move will free up $5M in salary cap for the Broncos, but also a $4M dead money hit. Marshall, 29, came to the Broncos in 2013 from the Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad and became a full-time starter in 2014. He was an integral part of that...

Broncos 2019 Super Bowl odds nosedive after Joe Flacco trade

Broncos 2019 Super Bowl odds nosedive after Joe Flacco trade

Oddsmakers has more confidence in the Denver Broncos with Case Keenum than with Joe Flacco. Yikes. According to Bovada, the Denver Broncos odds to win the Super Bowl next season plummeted from an already embarrassing 100/1 odds to an eye popping 125/1 after the team traded for Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. Apparently, Case Keenum is the better man for the job for oddsmakers. Meanwhile, the mere act of ditching Flacco as a backup quarterback has improved the Ravens Super Bowls odds from a more respectable 30/1 longshot to 28/1. What do you think, Broncos Country? Are the Broncos...

Joe Flacco is the perfect quarterback for the Broncos right now

Joe Flacco is the perfect quarterback for the Broncos right now

If the Denver Broncos are looking for a better bridge quarterback option than Case Keenum, it doesn’t get much better than Joe Flacco.

The move immediately sent Broncos Country into a frenzy of reaction. Mike Klis of 9News joined First and 10 at 10 on Wednesday to discuss the trade and what it means for the franchise moving forward.

Fans react to Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

The news that the Denver Broncos traded for Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco shocked Broncos Country on Wednesday. The Denver Broncos have agreed in principle with the Baltimore Ravens to trade a fourth round pick for quarterback Joe Flacco. The news sent shock waves through Broncos Country as Flacco has never been a popular pick with fans considering how the 2012 season played out. However, John Elway is clearly unwilling to roll the dice on a second season with Case Keenum at the helm and with the 2019 NFL Draft there will be uncertainty with that 10th overall pick. Broncos fans,...

Vic Fangio isn’t looking for Band-Aids to fix Broncos’ woes

Vic Fangio isn’t looking for Band-Aids to fix Broncos’ woes

The Denver Broncos are not looking for Band-Aid fixes in 2019 as the goal is to be great in 2021 and beyond. The Denver Broncos have been applying Band-Aids to their post-Peyton Manning problems for three straight seasons with ever worsening results. After winning 12+ games in each of the four seasons Manning was in Denver, they have put together 18 total wins in those three seasons since his retirement. The lack of patience from the top down in the organization is an important reason why the wins haven’t materialized since 2016. Instead, new Head Coach Vic Fangio preached patience in...

There are plenty of big events coming up quick from the 2019 NFL Combine to free agency and to the NFL Draft. For the Denver Broncos, their hiring of Vic Fangio means they’ll be able to get their install going two weeks earlier than most other teams on April 1, 2019 as opposed to April 15, 2019 for those teams who have tenured head coaches. The NFL tracks their calendar for the entire year, but I will add the dates of things...

Patriots vs. Rams - Live Blog

Patriots vs. Rams - Live Blog

The Los Angeles Rams look to hand Tom Brady an NFL record tying fourth Super Bowl defeat. Make it happen, Wade! The New England Patriots are in the Super Bowl yet again this year, this time in a rematch with the Los Angeles Rams. Tom Brady won his first Super Bowl against the Rams way back when and he could tie the NFL record for most Super Bowl defeats with a loss to the Rams in Super Bowl 53. And yes, that is the outcome I’m hoping for. He’s a great quarterback, but it would be nice to have him hold the record for both most Super Bowl wins by a quarterback and most Super Bowl losses...

Current and Former players react to Broncos Hall of Fame announcements

The Denver Broncos got two legends into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2019. Here were some reactions to the news from current and former players. The Denver Broncos were well represented in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2019 vote on Saturday. Voters put in both owner Pat Bowlen as a contributor and first ballot cornerback Champ Bailey into the Hall of Fame. We know the fan reaction was one of elation over both. Bowlen had been snubbed every year since the contributor classification was added in 2015. Finally, after much lobbying by everyone in Broncos Country, Bowlen was a lock...

Bowlen sisters meet with media leading up to Pat Bowlen’s Hall of Fame vote

Beth Bowlen Wallace and Brittany Bowlen met with the media on Friday to talk about Pat Bowlen’s Hall of Fame candidacy. Happy Pro Football Hall of Fame Day Broncos Country! Today promises to be a good one for us too. It’s looking like Pat Bowlen is a lock (FINALLY!) for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but Champ Bailey is getting a lot of looks at first-ballot consideration as well. There is a chance Steve Atwater will make it too, but despite our best efforts, we’re not seeing any buzz at all for his candidacy. The voters, for whatever dumb reasons they have, don’t like to double...
