Predicting the Broncos – And You Probably Won’t Like It

September 6th, 2019

Week One @ The Raiders The Broncos supposedly fixed their quarterback, secondary, and coaching situations, but if Vic Fangio can’t get an opening season win against Oakland, it’s going to be a long year.  The young Raiders make too many young mistakes.  Broncos win 13-10. RECORD 1-0 Week Two vs The Bears The Bears have the best defense in the league and will make life impossible for Joe Flacco and our questionable offensive line.  So even if our defense is up for the challenge, we simply don’t have enough to put points on the board.  Bears win 14-3. RECORD 1-1 Week Three @ The Packers Aaron... Read More

Broncos vs Raiders: It Could Be All We Need to See

August 9th, 2019

After a 6-10 season, the Denver Broncos and John Elway knew they had to make some changes. The team said goodbye to Case Keenum, the coaching staff, Bradley Roby, Matt Paradis, and others. In came an entire new coaching staff, a high-priced secondary, and a Super Bowl winning quarterback in Joe Flacco. The question is whether all the movement will lead to victories, or do the Broncos revert to the same team (with another new quarterback) that has gone 20-28 since winning the Super Bowl back in 2015? Generally, one game does not a season make. But in this case, with an opening-season matchup against... Read More

Hand Me My Orange Colored Glasses

October 23rd, 2018

Doubters may look at Denver’s 45-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals as a needed win over an awful team.  Rookie QB Josh Rosen threw two interceptions that went for scores, the Cardinals had five turnovers, and Arizona dropped to 1-6 in the standings. Sure, the Broncos three wins have come against teams that have a combined 5-14 record, but after a season full of frustration, here are six reasons to look at Denver’s first road win of the season with orange colored glasses. Von Miller – With just 1.5 sacks during Denver’s four-game losing streak, Miller called out Arizona and his own... Read More

Why Do We Still Hate the Raiders?

September 18th, 2018

There are three unwritten laws that we live by in Colorado.  Avoid I-70 during peak ski weekends, don’t turn off your sprinkler system just because it snows a little early, and most importantly, always hate the Raiders. The rivalry goes back years, but the epicenter stems from the late seventies when the Oakland matched Kenny Stabler, Cliff Branch, and Fred Biletnikoff against Denver’s Orange Crush defense of Randy Gradishar, Tom Jackson, and Billy Thompson. The games were violent, nasty, physical matchups that often ended with blood on the field, and fights in the stands.  But as the years... Read More

Broncos Prediction – Did You Say Playoffs?

September 4th, 2018

Whether it’s facing rookie quarterbacks, unknown entities, or a coach that hasn’t blown a whistle in nine years, here’s predicting what looks to be an unpredictable season for the Orange and Blue. Seattle Seahawks – The Seahawks (9-7) cleaned house after missing the playoffs and are replacing ten starters from last year’s squad.  No more Michael Bennett, Richard Sherman, Jimmy Graham, and All-Pro Earl Thomas is a holdout.  Russel Wilson could beat the Broncos by himself, but with banged up receivers, rookie running backs, and a hyped-up home crowd with lofty aspirations, the Broncos... Read More
