3rd and Long - winning big without your "A" game

On Sunday for the first time during the same game, our offense and our defense played poorly for long stretches. Despite an offense that was scoring at prodigious rates, the Broncos turned the...

3rd and Long — Remember To Breathe

What a difference a year makes. At this point last season the Broncos were 2-3, coming off of a mauling by the Pats in which our D allowed 251 yards rushing and 35 first downs.

3rd and Long - Roasting the Eagles

Through three games the Broncos defense has looked similar to how it looked through three games of 2012, good but not great. There were issues. However, so far in 2012, the issues have not been...

3rd and Long - Correct Pryorities

I'm gonna talk about out run D right now, because they deserve some serious kudos for what they have been able to do so far. The Broncos came into this game with the best run defense in the NFL....

3rd and Long - Oh Brother

Peyton and Eli had round three. The older brother prevailed as he had in the first two meetings. The younger brother was defeated by a strong defense and a group of receivers that dropped passes...

Broncos Defense: 3rd and Longs

I'm going to reprise my weekly 3rd and Long analysis from last year. Good defenses force their opponents into many 3rd and long situations. Good defenses generally STOP their opponents 3 out of 4...

What to do about CJ Anderson

The Broncos currently have seven running backs on the roster. Last season we carried five for most of the year, McGahee, Hillman, Moreno, L. Ball, Hester and Gronkowski although I think there...

Defense - First 6 - '12 vs '13 looking back and forward

I'm not gonna try and blow sunshine up your butt - removing two All-Pro defenders from any defense is going to leave some major holes. What I am going to do in the fan post is remind everyone here...

Broncos Receivers over the past 5 years

The passing game has many moving parts. The QB gets the majority of the focus - rightfully so -, but you also have the offensive line and receivers to consider. I'm going to focus on the receivers....

PFM and the numbers - 2012 in perspective

We all know that Manning had one of the best years of his career last year statistically, but how does it compare to his other seasons and how did he compare to other NFL QBs last year. In...

Kickers (#?$#%?) - Critically Evaluating Prater's Performance

I saw the post defending Prater and it raised some questions in my mind. 1. How did Prater compare to the rest of the league last year? 2. How does Prater compare to the rest of the league over...

High Risk, High Reward - Trindon Holliday

For those of you who don't know the story well, you should, because it is a good one. Trindon Holliday has always been small and fast - very, very fast. At 5,5" 169 lbs he is the arguably smallest...

Mid-to-Late Round QBs and the Modern NFL

Even the most casual NFL fan probably knows the story of Tom Brady, the most famous of the late round QBs. With the Broncos selection of Dysert in the 7th, I wanted to know how often do QBs taken...

A defensive tackle that provides impact - college stats

I have seen a lot of people on MHR looking for that really rare species of DT that provides "pass rush." Unfortunately, these guys are few and far between and generally the guys who can do this...

Finding a RB with the skills that the Broncos need

While the Broncos currently have 5 RBs (6 if you count Fannin) on the roster, it is widely speculated that Broncos will take a RB in the draft this year. McGahee and Moreno have signifcantly...

A historical look at M10 and the edge rusher

Much like my last post, this one is going to be technical. Having a great deal of mass and being able to accelerate quickly (quicker than the offensive linemen) is beneficial for a defensive end...

Elite burst - the DEs and DTs who accelerate the fastest and generate the most momentum

Warren Sapp made it to the NFL hall of fame based upon his insanely quick first step. He could generate huge amounts of momentum quickly given his mass and this allowed him to beat most guards...

CBs - Tale of the Tape

So I have been asked to analyze the combine performance of the CBs. First though we need to talk about what makes a good CB. Of course straight-line speed is a plus, but it is not the ultimate...

Where's the Beef? At DT, that's where - evaluating the DTs in the 2013 NFL draft

For those of you who can remember the 2010 and 2011 drafts (and even further back), you will remember that the Broncos were projected to take a defensive tackle early. It seems like we have been...

3 guys that jumped out at me at the combine

Here are three players that were (relatively) unknown to me prior to the combine who I think that Broncos should consider seriously during the draft. All of them showed some really remarkable...

The RB tale of the tape - analysis of the RBs at the combine

So it generally agreed that the Broncos are going to look at RBs in this year's draft. As I did last year, I am going to take a look at how these guys performed at the combine. Keep in mind that...

Revisiting preseason expectations - Defensive improvement

The general expectation going into the 2012 was that the Broncos defense would continue the improvement trend that started in 2011. Last year I did a post prior to the season talking about what we...

Why we don't need Revis (or any other high-priced FA CB)

So everyone who comes to MHR is well aware of Champ having the worst game of his career the last time we saw him play. Hopefully at this point, you have recovered from that game and are willing to...

3rd and Long - triple shot

The Broncos have made steady improvement over the course of the season in terms of defense on all 3rd downs as well as 3rd and Long specifically. I took a break from writing this for a few weeks so...

Allowed yards per play - #1 in the league

So we are technically tied for first in the league in yards allowed per play (with the 49ers) at 4.7. All those who predicted a top 10 defense for the Broncos this season raise your hand (#raises hand#). :-)

3rd and Long - Reversing the Chargers' polarity

So after another bad week against the Pats in which the Broncos gave up a horribly high conversion rate on 3rd and Long, I was really interested to what the D would do against the Bolts. The...

Our D, or the QBs we've faced - you decide

The top 3 QBs at converting by pass on 3rd down have all played against he Broncos in 2012. Oh, and Brady is not one of them (he is #10). #4 plays for us.
