Broncos are 2.5-point road favorites over the Cardinals

Yes, you read that correctly. Somehow, the Denver Broncos are road favorites on Thursday Night Football against the Arizona Cardinals.

Despite a four-game losing streak and a 1-9 road record under Vance Joseph, the Denver Broncos (2-4) are favored by 2.5-points over the Arizona Cardinals (1-5).

This line feels fishy as the Cardinals are far more competitive now than they were to start the season. In their first two games, they were beaten by a combined score of 58-6. However, since then,...

Broncos power rankings: Denver is one of the worst teams in the NFL now

The Denver Broncos are tanking hard after starting 2-0 and are desperate for a win against the Arizona Cardinals this week.

The Denver Broncos are now reaching a consensus around the NFL power rankings as one of the league’s worst teams. Fortunately for them, they’ll face a team that is also considered one of the worst in the league in the Arizona Cardinals this week, so they have a chance to rebound a bit with a win on Thursday Night Football.

Then again, the Broncos are 1-9 on the...

Broncos vs Rams: The No Bull Review

The Denver Broncos players put up a valiant effort against one of the league’s best teams. The Broncos coaches sadly couldn’t put the team in a position to win. Here are my thoughts, opinions, and analysis on the Denver Broncos’ most recent game.

I agree with one thing Vance Joseph said after this game: “There are no moral victories.”

Let me echo that for you out there in Broncos Country. You know I’m a fan who tries to see the best in our team and cheer them on. It is my...

Broncos 3rd and long: historically bad run defense

Welcome to the worst run defense in NFL history. And that’s not hyperbole.

If you read my weekly offering here, you know I enjoy thinking, writing and talking about football stats. While they are much more fun when the Denver Broncos are setting good records, there is a perverse pleasure in “watching things burn”, or in this case watching our run defense get burned.

Since the merger there have been 180 games where a team has allowed 270 or more yards rushing. Five teams gave up that...

NFL Power Rankings: Week 7

Vance Joseph, Joe Woods, and Bill Musgrave look to be fired by Friday morning.

These Five Things I Know Are True:

#1. If Elway and Joseph had Patrick Mahomes on the roster, he’d still be on the bench behind Alex Smith/Case Keenum, because they’re too spineless to take a shot with a young and unproven signal caller.

#2. If Vance Joseph and John Elway think it’s the right thing to do, odds are it’s the wrong thing to do. Bench the #3 guard in the NFL? Yeah, and our run game suffered....

Horse Tracks - Is it time to Suck for the Duck?

Should the Broncos go all out to get the only consensus franchise signal caller in April?

The Broncos are eliminated from postseason contention by everything but the mathematics. After Sunday’s 23-20 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, Denver has fallen to 2-4. Worse yet, the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets, Houston Texans and Chargers all won. Meanwhile in South Beach the Miami Dolphins are enjoying the beginnings of Brocktoberfest after Osweiler led the team to an upset...

John Elway calls Broncos’ defense ‘soft’

John Elway has once again leveled a serious criticism against his Denver Broncos. Elway spoke on the radio with Orange and Blue 760 on Monday and said his defense has gotten “soft” when asked how to fix the run defense. “You know that’s a good question,” Elway said, via The Athletic. “Obviously we’ve gotten very soft in there and to give up the amount of yardage we have in the last two weeks has been tough. We’re not playing well inside and obviously we’ve played some good...

Elway: ‘Only way out of this is to get a win’

At this point in the season, the Broncos’ GM says coaching and playing better is the only way out of this downward spiral - “We have to win.”

There was a day not so long ago that when the Broncos held the opposing quarterback to 14 of 28 passes with one interception, no touchdowns and five sacks, it was a definite win. Possibly even a shellacking.

“I wish we had the magic switch that we could just fix this thing. ...But there isn’t a magic switch with a magic answer that’s going...

49ers at Packers - Live Blog

A snoozer of a Monday Night Football game is on the docket in Week 6 as the hapless San Francisco 49ers take on the Green Bay Packers.

The Green Bay Packers (2-2-1) are hosting the San Francisco 49ers (1-4) on Monday Night Football. This looks like a game that the Packers should win easily as the 49ers are reeling with the losses of both their starting quarterback and running back.

In fact, this might be the most uninteresting prime time game of the year so far.

Report: Su'a Cravens on track to return in Week 9

The first player to be designated to return from injured reserve this season is one who hasn’t played since December 2016, but the Broncos are in dire need of any help they can get. Su’a Cravens will return to practice this week after being stashed on IR prior to the season. He’s been cleared to return, per The Athletic’s Nicki Jhabvala (on Twitter), and Cravens tweets he’s on track to face the Texans in Week 9. Having seen injury trouble (and a public dispute) lead to a...

Broncos’ Ronald Leary out for season

The highest-paid interior lineman in Broncos history will not be available for the 2018 team’s final 10 games. The fears surrounding a possible Achilles’ tendon tear for Ronald Leary turned out to be justified. Leary will miss the rest of the season, Vance Joseph confirmed Monday. The veteran guard went down midway through the Broncos’ 23-20 loss to the Rams on Sunday. Max Garcia and Connor McGovern had been rotating at right guard on Sunday; that duo will now comprise Denver’s...

Vance Joseph responds to speculation about his coaching future

Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph is on the hot seat if you believe the speculation around the league, and he’s not really shying away from it. Joseph didn’t try to deny it when asked if he felt he was coaching week-to-week, turning it into an answer about how every NFL coach is judged by success and failure. Joseph is trying to diffuse the question a bit, but the reality is, his seat is hotter than virtually every other coach’s. Denver has lost four straight games and has three more...

Von Miller blames himself for 23-20 loss: ‘I have to be a game-changer’

The edge rusher seems to have lost his cape.

Von Miller seems to think the Broncos’ 23-20 loss yesterday was his fault.

“I just can’t get it done. I need to watch the film and figure it out — what I can do to make things happen,” said the linebacker who accounted for 1.5 of the Broncos’ five sacks yesterday but was also part of the unit that allowed Todd Gurley to rush for a career-high 208 yards.

“We knew we’d be leaking the run today because the pass was our focus, but 272...

Broncos lack leadership at the top

Until the Broncos get leadership at the top to fill the hole left by Mr. B, it’s doubtful any of this changes.

The announcement hit us all in the heart.

It was the moment everyone associated with the Denver Broncos dreaded. But when it came at the start of training camp in July 2014, we knew it was the end of an era. That was when Pat Bowlen surrendered control of the team as he battled Alzheimer’s disease.

The Broncos would go on to win Super Bowl 50, and John Elway was able to repay...

9,131 no shows to Broncos game on Sunday is most since 2010

Broncos Country is abandoning the Denver Broncos as apathy over the teams direction grows.

The Denver Broncos enjoy one of the longest sellout streaks in NFL history, but that doesn’t mean fans won’t make the choice to eat the cost of their ticket to show the team their displeasure with the product on the field.

Back in July, the Broncos sold out single-game tickets in 12 minutes. In October, an incredible 9,131 fans no showed the Broncos game against the Los Angeles Rams. Even worse,...

The one big takeaway from the Broncos loss is all about the fans

The loudest statement during the game was from fans that chose to stay away.

When the Denver Broncos fell to the Los Angeles Rams, there was a different feel to the game. Most fans went into the game with low expectations. Score predictions were generally unkind, and the enthusiasm for football felt low. And then the Broncos made a game out of a predicted blowout.

When #BroncosCountry gives up on the season, as more than 9,000 did on Sunday vs the #LARams, that is the biggest indictment...
