Where do we go now? (a long look at the roster)

One of the things I remember after last year's draft was Bronco's GM Ted Sundquist saying that Denver did not draft a safety because they did not think there were any that could compete for playing...

Where do we go now? (a prequel)

After crunching salary cap numbers for quite a while, I took a deep breath, stepped back and looked at the Broncos roster.  I was trying to figure out what other work needs to be done before...

Is Travis Henry a role model (of sorts)?

I know that on first glance, that seems like crazy talk, but bear with me.  When Henry signed with Denver he got a 5 year deal worth about 22.5 million with $12 million in bonuses the first two...

More salary cap geekiness

I have created a few more tables that present the cap info in different ways. Instead of cluttering up the diary, here are a handful of links. Let me know if there is a better way of displaying it...

The 2008 Broncos Salary Cap

I have finished compiling my unofficial salary cap figures for every player on the roster or who otherwise counts against the cap this year.  I have not included the details of John Engelberger's...

Free Agency is coming!! Free Agency is coming!!

The free agency season officially starts Thursday night at 9pm Pacific.  Any player whose contract has expired or who was released is a free agent.  But the type of free agent they are depends on...

Anyone going to the HOF induction?

This is not much of a diary, but a friend called last night and wants to head to Canton to see his Redskins get inducted.  Since Bronco inductions are so rare, I will be making the trip out as well...

The NFL Salary Cap (a not so brief intro)

This is an introduction to the salary cap.  There will probably be more diaries to follow that drill down into specific minutia of the rules or that look at a player's contract in more specific...

Giants/Patriots -- Best Super Bowl Ever?

There's been a bunch of conversation about whether this was the best Super Bowl ever.  As ejruiz777 pointed out, people have a tendency to overrate events that have just occurred.  So I thought I...

Stokely signs 3 year extension

I saw it on the ticker on the NFL Network and the Denver post has a short article but there is nothing with any details beyond the 3 year part.  I have no problems with this move.  Stokely,...

Help me pick a jersey (poll)

I just got some money for my birthday and have decided it's time to add to my collection of Broncos jerseys.  The NFL Shop has a 10% off sale thru tomorrow night so I have a little time to make a...

Some BCS thoughts before real football begins

If you want some real football discussion, go read styg50's diary.  But if you want a college football diversion before kickoff, read on.  I watched ESPN's college football recap show and I learned...

It was 25 years ago today

That John Elway led his final comeback in college.  After driving Stanford down the field (including converting a 4th and 17 from their own 13), Stanford kicked a field goal to take a 20-19 lead....

In The Year 2000...(and ten)

Hoosierteacher had a good diary before last week's game about the state of our roster heading into next year.  I had actually been thinking about a similar diary, but looking a bit farther ahead....

Thought I would try and inject some levity after all the focus on the GB loss.  This was an actual question that a couple of us tossed around a few years ago.  What change in life condition would...

A short rant against the NFL

(This started as part of a comment in one the GB-Den recap posts, but it got to be a bit too long and off topic so I thought I would make it its own diary.)I really wish the NFL would open up with...

Yes, there was defensive improvement in the Jags game

I thought this post was worthy of promotion to the front page. If you click on the Entry Link at the bottom of the post you can answer the poll that Matt included. Thanks for the post, Matt!!! --...

Thoughts on Oakland and beyond

A bunch of random thoughts and observations I've had over the past week or so that I thought I would throw together instead of replying piecemeal in other diaries.  Overall, I am obviously happy...

Who do you love?

Instead of doing a mock draft, I thought I would rank the players as a Broncos fan.  I am not going to look at salary or what pick in the draft they would be taken.  I am only looking at the...

Draft needs - April version

I originally wrote a diary about the Broncos' needs about a month ago and now seems like an appopriate time to revisit it.  To be honest, not much has changed.  I feel a bit better now about DT and...

An interesting tidbit about guaranteed money

From CBS Sportsline's Pete Prisco's blog (scroll down to the March 5th entry) comes this nugget about all the guaranteed money that have been reported with recent signings.  This was something I...

Draft needs

While all the Broncos movement in the first week of free agency shook up which positions are secondary needs, they did not address what I feel were their main needs - namely defensive line and...

Damien Nash, Dead At 24

Thanks to MattR for getting this on the site. Seldom do teams have to go through one tragedy like this, yet the Broncos have had to take on two during the same off-season. Nash, like Darrent...
