Broncos Context and Hope

So, the Broncos are 1-2. It's not where you'd like the team to be at this point, but you have to try to look for the orange lining. For someone who's just browsing through teams only looking at...

Digging for Orange Gold -- Week 4 Picks and Thoughts

  The NFL season is beginning to get earnestly underway, and now the fan has plenty of statistics to use when making picks. Unfortunately, no matter how predictive a statistic is, it cannot...

If They Were Food -- Week 4 Power Rankings

I'll tell you what, Power Rankings are sort of equal parts fascinating, pretentious, and boring. The most interesting parts to me are the explanations. Thus the inspiration for the debut of my "If...

MNF Packers vs. Bears Open Thread

Tonight the Green Bay Packers face the Chicago Bears on Soldier Field in an NFC North matchup. I didn't see a thread open, so I guess if you guys want to make some comment, go ahead. Personally, I...

Colts Strategy Talk Bugging Me

Okay, so it seems like all I've been hearing this season (since Houston beat the Colts) is that the way to beat Manning is to keep him off the field by running the ball. I think this is a stupid an...

Digging for Orange Gold -- Week 3 Picks and Thoughts

  Last week, I made a fanpost in which I went over my thoughts on teams in the process of making my picks for the week. It's a pretty long post, but I had a fun time writing it and rereading it,...

"Power" Rankings

4

This doesn't really merit being treated like information, but a good chunk of their "experts" had the Raiders ranked higher than the Broncos. How is a team that got blown out better than a team that played a close game?

Digging for (Orange) Gold - Week 2 Picks and Thoughts

Hello MHR nation! I decided to make a post breaking down my picks for this week, including my thoughts on each team in the matchup. I came to this decision after surfing NFL.com stats, all the...

Nervous About the AFC West

What's the common theme in the AFC West? Poor run defense. The Chiefs are starting to look like, at least, a serious monkey wrench in this division. Run defense is the Achillles heal of the C...

Overvaluing a Draft Choice as a Fan

I recently posted the bulk of this fanshot in a comment here. I thought it merited it's own post. I think that we as fans can overvalue a particular draft choice in our feelings and evaluation of...

18 game schedule and the UFL

Well, this isn't going to be a very in-depth post. I was just pondering how a change to an 18-game schedule could affect the importance of a developmental league for the NFL. One repercussion of...

Orton: Meaningless but fun stats

From NFL.com, Orton ranks number 2 in passer rating so far in the preseason.

Disappointed in the new Broncos Fan again

Booing Scheffler was low class. I don't recall him saying anything bad about the Broncos after he left. Regardless of the circumstances of his departure, he made some great plays for our team, and...

Broncos on Hulu.com

1

Well, this isn't news, but I recently realized that there's a whole bunch of NFL Network shows on Hulu.com. The "In Their Own Words" videos seem cool. I watched the one on Elway. I've also watched 3 seasons of "Hard Knocks" already. Fun stuff!

Sapp's Hunters: Dumervil

Here's a video breaking down what makes Dumervil "Doom" for the quarterback. Just found this through surfing NFL from another link here.

Scrounging Youtube for Floyd Little

After becoming more involved as a Broncos fan the last couple of years, I started to read some books on early Broncos lore and whatnot. You hear a lot about Floyd Little, who as fate would have it...

Share Your 2010 Broncos Checklist

Sometimes us fans have to be realistic. You're not going to win the Superbowl every year, right? So, as a fan, I usually have certain things that I hope to see the Broncos achieve in the coming...

Bengals have reached out to Russel

Ha ha! So what first started as a joke may be true! The Bengals are looking at Jamarcus Russel. I'd say I wish we played them next year, but I still remember our home game against the Faders last year.

Demarius -- What's in a Name

So I caught this article from a recent fan post by jonmark93, and Demarius Thomas was asked about the meaning of his name. His mom told him that he'd be the only one with that name, and that was...

That "New QB" Smell

Why is it that we fans so often find ourselves clamoring for our rookie QB to take the field regardless of the performance of the current starter? Why is it that so many talking heads speak of the...

Response to any 'Blame Clady' Argument

When I heard that Clady injured a knee playing basketball, I knew it wouldn't be long before some in the media started to find fault with Clady. Indeed, I read an article on espn today at lunch...

Where Do People Get These Opinions?

These days it seems every time I talk to someone about the Broncos, be it family, friends, or coworkers, I'm blasted with some bizarro assertion that doesn't parse in reality. Where do these people...

Strength of Victory - SD vs. Den

Cutler INT count

He's now at 17, with 14 TDs I think. What's his rating? Hmm... That's not necessarily all his fault any more than Orton's 3 picks on Sunday were, but I think statements about Cutler being a...

Run blocking

I've heard this addressed before, in regards to zone blocking and the misuse of our running backs, but I think that run blocking is the main problem with our team right now. Our defense is playing...

League Parity and Players' Rights

If you frequent MSM sites, as I do myself, you've probably heard an earful lately about the lack of parity in the league, which is supposedly growing. I'm not sure that the disparity in the league...

Somewhere around halftime in our preseason game against Chicago, I was thinking to myself, "This is going to be a long season."  I hadn't been following much of the media hype, but I had watched...

Bronco Success Objection?

Okay, so obviously there was an offsides penalty before the gamewinning Prater kick that made the kick easier, and I'm sure there were some other penalties that hurt the Broncos. So the possibility...
