Five burning questions for 49ers-Broncos Monday night game

The Denver Broncos will host the San Francisco 49ers tonight in the final preseason game of Week 2. There are many back stories to this game. The two teams practiced together in the days leading up to the game. It led to plenty of feistiness on both sides. Meanwhile, San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will be making his first appearance in live-game action since tearing an ACL last September. In Denver, we’re interested to see how QB Joe Flacco performs against an improved 49ers...

3 things to watch during the Broncos-49ers preseason game

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

These are the three big things I’m looking for during the Denver Broncos home preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers.

A little over a week ago, Coach Vic Fangio has said that outside of 40 or so locked in guys, the other roster spots are up for grabs. We’ve reached that point in the preseason where a little clarity has come to some position battles. I wrote about how the Broncos’ stocks are trending last week and while there’s still enough time...

Casey Barrett - Mile High Report

The Denver Broncos will host the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, August 19, 2019 after a couple of joint practice sessions last week.

The Denver Broncos (1-1) will host the San Francisco 49ers (1-0) in their third of five preseason games in 2019. They held two joint practice sessions at UCHealth Training Center on Friday and Saturday, with the latter session being fairly chippy with some fighting between the two teams.

To see the offense respond like it did on Saturday is a positive sign for the regular season.

Good morning, Broncos Country!

The confidence from Joe Flacco and the Denver Broncos offense has been evident for over a week.

The first drive of the preseason for (most of) the No. 1 offense against the Seattle Seahawks served as the foundation. Over the last week, Flacco and the offense have become more comfortable...

Mike Shanahan was 'close' to return as Broncos head coach in 2017

Mike Shanahan says he was “close” to returning as the Denver Broncos’ head coach. Shanahan, 66, coached the Broncos from 1995-2008. He led Denver to two Super Bowl wins, both coming with John Elway as his quarterback, but was fired after the 2008 season.

Denver’s third preseason game is all about the offense

From the offensive line and snaps to Drew Lock and Phillip Lindsay, the MHR staff wants to see the offense take the next step (or two).

The longest preseason ever marches on.

There is some hyperbole there, but it does feel that way in regards to the Denver Broncos (just ask the media covering it). We are, however, getting closer to the regular season with Monday’s night preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers.

How much should we worry about Broncos tight end situation?

Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos have tried damn near everything to bring back a strong tight end position group, but injuries have thwarted seemingly every attempt.

On the Something Something Broncos podcast above, Laurie, Jess and I briefly talked about the tight end position, but I felt like we needed to dig a bit deeper into it in a separate post. Because, frankly, the Denver Broncos just can’t seem to figure out the tight end situation. When we entered Broncos...
