Opinion: Von Miller doesn’t need to change a thing about his game.

Shooters shoot, and Von Miller has been one of the best pass rushers in the league for years. Don’t try and change it now, coaching staff.

Shooters shoot. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.

Pick whichever saying you want, they all apply, here.

I was about to take a hiatus from writing for the next few weeks, as I’m getting ready to head up to the West Coast for a wedding (which I am in...as the groom), but this coaching staff forced my hand....

Browns at Broncos Week 15: Everything we know

The Denver Broncos will host the Cleveland Browns on a unique Saturday Night Football game in Week 15.

The Denver Broncos (6-7) are coming off a very poor offensive performance against the lowly San Francisco 49ers to host a very dangerous upstart Cleveland Browns (5-7-1) team led by number one overall pick Baker Mayfield.

Kickoff is set for 6:20 p.m. Mile High time on Saturday, December 15, 2018 at Broncos Stadium at Mile High in Denver, Colorado. The game will be called by Mike Tirico...

The Broncos future will be on display against the Browns

The NFL has turned the Broncos game against the Browns into a futures showcase.

There is so much consternation in Broncos Country right now that it might be a good time to try and accentuate the positive. I know after the loss to the San Francisco 49ers, I could use a little happiness in my fandom. My guess is that you probably could, too.

Where can I go to find all this positivity? Interestingly enough, the NFL has provided the fans with some uplifting fun. The Denver Broncos will be...

No Bull Review: Denver Broncos’ season is falling flat

Talking the Denver Broncos’ future and how pivotal the next three games are to the coaches, team and front office.

It has been quite a struggle this week to dig in and knock out my normal No Bull Review. I finally have an evening to work on writing (thank goodness for being done with finals!) and I decided to take Broncos Country for a little bit different direction instead of my normal game review.

I do have some takeaways for you but will keep them short and simple:

Week 15 NFL Game Predictions

Yes Santa, we have football on Saturday!

Who called it? WHOOOOOOO CALLED IT? Boom, Steelers lost. Then again, the Broncos lost too, so it was all for naught. Also, who has ultimately been proven right about Kirk (or is it Kurt) Cousins being a loser QB who will put up decent fantasy stats, but is completely incapable of winning games against winning teams? I want thrones of people to line up for the “we should have trusted you Pete” apologies.

Regarding last week, I’m still struggling...

Seeking big play but risking mistakes, Broncos want more from Case Keenum

Fearing turnovers, the Broncos' QB hasn't hit on many big plays in the past few games. Broncos coach Vance Joseph wants him to take more chances.

HT: Onus for a win on Saturday falls on the Broncos’ offense

Despite the defense’s pitfalls against the 49ers, let’s not forget which side of the ball couldn’t overcome just 20 points total.

Good morning, Broncos Country!

It seems much of the discussion and hand-wringing the past few days over the Broncos’ loss to the Niners has been about the poor defense - the 210 yards given up to one tight end, the early 20-point deficit, the penalties...oh the PENALTIES, PENALTIES, PENALTIES (sorry, go read “The Grinch” and you’ll get it).

Justin Simmons: “We just didn’t execute”

The Denver Broncos defense came out flat against the San Francisco 49ers, but they came out in the second half and played hard.

Denver Broncos starting safety Justin Simmons was asked on First & 10 at 10 on Orange and Blue 760 on Wednesday about the defense’s breakdown in the first half against the San Francisco 49ers.

Being down 20-0 at halftime was not ideal, but Defensive Coordinator Joe Woods laid into the team at halftime and they came out a completely different unit in the second...

GIF Horse - The Good, The Bad, & The Elway

The buck stops with Broncos GM John Elway. How is he going to fix this?

After the Broncos loss to the 49ers Sunday, I posted a simple tweet before finding a way to distract myself from the disappointment of the Broncos 20-14 catastrophe.

It will go unsung by most of the media, but it all falls squarely on John Elway.
-Chose Joseph over Shanahan
-Passed on Kaepernick for Trevor Siemian/Paxton Lynch & now Case Keenum
-Traded established veterans for cap space & draft picks.

Fate of season and playoffs hinges on Broncos win

It all comes down to Saturday’s game at Mile High. Here’s what the Broncos must do to keep their season alive.

This is a must-win game.

That cliche gets thrown out so much, it’s lost its significance. This is not one of of those times. The time to save the season is here.

In other words: This is a must-win game.

That’s what faces the Denver Broncos (6-7) on Saturday at home versus the Cleveland Browns (5-7-1). Win and the Broncos keep their miniscule playoff hopes alive. Lose and...

Broncos 3-point home favorites over Browns

The Denver Broncos are slight home favorites this weekend against the Cleveland Browns.

The Denver Broncos (6-7) had opened 4.5-point favorites at home over the Cleveland Browns (5-7-1), but that was before one team had an ugly loss to a bad team and the other an impressive win over an average team. Now the line stands at a mere 3-points in favor of the home team, which is basically even.

Rookie Baker Mayfield is having some quality performances since the Browns ousted head coach Hue...

Case Keenum is not throwing catchable balls

Case Keenum was missing badly in the first half vs the 49ers, Nick Mullens was not missing at all

Case Keenum was off-target early and often against the 49ers. I looked at every throw he made in the first half. On those throws where he was attempted to complete a pass (not throwing the ball away) he was accurate on eight of fourteen. Overall he was 7 of 15 for 43 yards in the first half. Below is an analysis of all 17 of his throws (one was negated because of the roughing penalty and one was...

Horse Tracks: Broncos facing major offseason overhaul

Regardless of how the rest of the year turns out the Denver Broncos appear to be facing a major offseason overhaul.

Good morning, Broncos Country.

The Denver Broncos were on the upswing after three-straight victories that brought them to a 6-6 record, but their embarrassing loss to the San Francisco 49ers indicates that the team has a long ways to go before they have a legitimate shot at being contenders. At this point in time it would take an absolute miracle for the Broncos to make the...

Broncos to debut beer-pouring robot at upcoming game

Artificial intelligence figures to be a major part of the future, as robots can potentially make our lives easier by handling many different manual tasks in everyday life. The Broncos are apparently aware of that, as they’re taking a forward-thinking approach to pouring drinks at Saturday’s game against the Browns at Mile High Stadium. Apparently, the team will be using a robot known as the Bud Light Bot to pour beer for fans located in the stadium’s United Club East level. The robot...

NFL Power Rankings: Week 15

Cover your eyes, a hated rivals is the new #1 and our beloved Broncos are #32.

1. Kansas City Chiefs:

I’m disgusted by this, but who is more worthy? They are tied with the Saints and Rams for the best record in the NFL, and even with injuries mounting, they are still winning. Now, how long will they stay up here? That’s anybody’s guess as injuries will almost certainly take its toll on the team, but today, for now, they are the best.

2. New Orleans Saints:

Vance Joseph: “I want Case to be more aggressive”

The Denver Broncos can’t afford for Case Keenum to keep his throwing safe and ineffective.

With a legitimate chance at competing for a playoff spot, the Denver Broncos were down 20-0 halftime against a putrid 2-10 team. The Broncos were completely unprepared for the San Francisco 49ers, despite them only having one legitimate weapon on offense in tight end George Kittle.

When the defense wasn’t giving up yards and points, the offense was doing exactly nothing. Head Coach Vance Joseph...

All I want for Christmas is a VJ extension

The team has met or even exceeded expectations and Elway’s drafting failures should not fall on Joseph’s shoulders.

Waking up and watching a recording of this game on Monday morning was something akin to preparing a meal the night before and while you can barely sleep from the excitement of the coming feast, it turns out to taste like someone mistook your cereal bowl for a toilet.

As the first half progressed I wondered why I had awoken earlier than necessary and why on earth I had put...
