Situational passing stats - comparing Case Keenum and Joe Flacco

What do the numbers say about Flacco as an upgrade over Keenum?

I know that numbers don’t tell the whole story, but any time a big move like the Joe Flacco trade is made by the Broncos, I want to see some data. I hope you do as well. I not only want to know how Flacco performed in 2018 relative to Case Keenum, but I also want to know how well both did compared to the rest of the league.

There is this persistent myth (at least among Broncos fans still traumatized by...

Who is on the Denver/Colorado sports media Mount Rushmore?

One of the names is iconic sports talk radio show host Irv Brown, who passed away on Feb. 2. Another is Dave Logan.

Good morning, Broncos Country!

When the news of Irv Brown’s death spread, it hit a lot of people.

To get an idea of how much, Terry Frei had a great tribute for Brown in the Greeley Tribune on Feb. 3. Brown passed away on Feb. 2 at the age of 83.

On Saturday at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, people gathered to celebrate Brown’s incredible life and the impact he had on...

GIF Horse - Separating fact from fiction on Joe Flacco

I dug into the tape to see what’s really left of the Super Bowl 47 MVP.

I’ll be the first to admit I was aghast when news broke that John Elway traded for Joe Flacco Wednesday.

After all, he’s the guy who denied quite possibly the best Peyton Manning Broncos team a Super Bowl when Rahim Moore blew it made a critical error that would have preserved a 35-28 victory. What’s more, he’s the guy that has been a poster boy for QB WINZ and the bloated franchise quarterback contracts that...

Which AAF team will your be casually rooting for?

The Salt Lake Stallions seems like the most logical fit for us average Denver Broncos fans, but if you are non-local one of the other teams might do.

The AAF league enters its second week of a ten week schedule of games and it received surprisingly solid fanfare - unlike most farm leagues under the NFL behemoth. If you are getting into it, which team are you looking at rooting for the most?

The logical choice would be the Salt Lake Stallions. They are geographically close to Denver and also...

Broncos star Emmanuel Sanders sends cryptic tweet

The Denver Broncos’ offseason of transition started full throttle this week when the team acquired Joe Flacco from the Baltimore Ravens this week. This is just the first of what promises to be a ton of moves from embattled general manager John Elway following a six-win 2018 campaign. Understanding full well that the writing is on the wall, star receiver Emmanuel Sanders sent out a cryptic tweet Friday regarding the Broncos’ situation. We’re not exactly too sure what this means. Though,...

Broncos to part ways with Brandon Marshall

The Broncos are set to part ways with linebacker Brandon Marshall, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. The Broncos informed Marshall that they are not planning to pick up his option, making him a free agent in March. Free agency officially kicks off on March 13, but Marshall’s injury history could force him to wait a week or two before landing anywhere. If he does sign quickly, it’ll be for a lesser sum than the $7 million he was set to earn in 2019 with Denver. Marshall, 30 in September,...

LB Brandon Marshall cracks funny joke after parting ways with Broncos

The Denver Broncos notified linebacker Brandon Marshall on Friday that they will not be exercising his contract option for 2019, meaning he will become a free agent when the new league year begins next month. The 29-year-old should have no problem finding work, especially if he is willing to play on defense and offense. Marshall, of course, shares the same name with veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall. After word surfaced that the Broncos are not bringing him back, linebacker Brandon took...

Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall will now be a free agent on March 13 after the team refused to exercise his option for 2019.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Denver Broncos have notified linebacker Brandon Marshall that they will not be exercising his contract option for 2019. The move will make Marshall a free agent in March.

Is Kyler Murray the next John Elway?

The question is not about who they are as athletes or players, but leverage for who they play for.

Before you start shouting click bait into the comments section, give me a chance. Ian St. Clair and I had an interesting discussion about Kyler Murray on the MHR Radio Podcast. This isn’t about a skill set. This is about leverage.

John Elway has always been regarded as the highest rated player coming out of college. In the 1983 NFL Draft he was the obvious No. 1 pick. The problem? He did not...

Broncos 2019 Super Bowl odds nosedive after Joe Flacco trade

Oddsmakers has more confidence in the Denver Broncos with Case Keenum than with Joe Flacco. Yikes.

According to Bovada, the Denver Broncos odds to win the Super Bowl next season plummeted from an already embarrassing 100/1 odds to an eye popping 125/1 after the team traded for Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. Apparently, Case Keenum is the better man for the job for oddsmakers.

Meanwhile, the mere act of ditching Flacco as a backup quarterback has improved the Ravens Super Bowls...

What does Joe Flacco bring to the Broncos?

I spoke with a quarterback statistician to get answers regarding the Denver Broncos trade for Joe Flacco.

It’s impossible to deny that John Elway is at least trying to find a solution to the Bronco quarterback issues. With the recent trade for Joe Flacco the Broncos get an experienced former first rounder. I thought the trade made for a great opportunity to speak with QB statistician Ryan Michael about what it meant for your favorite team going forward.
