6 winners, 3 losers from Broncos 24-23 loss to Bears

Denver lost its second game but there were some positive developments that should make the team (and fans) feel better.

Yes, this is only the second preseason game, but the pressure was apparent.

That sounds like hyperbole to say this early, but this time of the NFL season is all about habits and trends — good or bad. The Denver Broncos had the chance on Saturday night to show what they put on the field against the Minnesota Vikings last week would not become more than a bad game.

It is...

It is time for the Broncos to move on from Paxton Lynch

Need to do sooner rather than later.

Many(myself included) had high hopes for Paxton Lynch when the Broncos traded up for him in the 2016 NFL Draft. He was a raw prospect with good size, intriguing tools, plus athleticism, and a player who fit the Broncos desperate need at quarterback.

Keep in mind they just lost Brock Osweiler to the Texans in free agency, signed Mark Sanchez, passed on Colin Kaepernick, and were just beginning to go down the Trevor Siemian road. So they needed a young...

Broncos vs. Bears: Denver’s first team looks sharp despite the loss

Both sides of the ball looked much better tonight as Denver handily whipped up on the Bears first and second teams.

After practicing together during the week, the Broncos and the Bears now got to finally square off in official game action. Tonight saw the first team offense and defense get more minutes than we saw last week, as both sides of the ball looked to get back on track after a slow start last week.

65,832 in attendance for the Broncos second preseason game vs. Bears.

Instant reactions: Broncos show signs of improvement in loss to Bears

Despite a strong showing by the first and second-team units, the Denver Broncos lost to the Chicago Bears by a score of 24-23 — but there are several encouraging signs of improvement to be happy about.

After losing their preseason opener, Broncos Country was hopeful for a quick turnaround this evening when the Denver Broncos returned to action against the Chicago Bears. Impressive play from their first and second units gave them a two score lead at the half, but the poor performance by the...

Champ Bailey: ‘I should be a first ballot Hall of Famer’

We agree. It should not even be up for debate. Champ Bailey will be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in a little less than a year from now.

Every now and then the NFL has a player so special at his position that when he retires he ends up in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. Champ Bailey will be one of those players. Champ even said so this week and it wasn’t even to be arrogant or cocky. He was just stating an objective fact.

“I objectively think I should...

First and Ten crew unload after yet another Broncos Hall of Fame snub

Fans should listen to this great segment because all three speak to what fans feel and think.

Emotional Andrew Mason is the most entertaining version.

Those who listen to 1st & 10 @ 10 know what I speak of. If you tuned into the show over the course of Denver Broncos training camp, when a big play happened, Mase would get amped and his microphone would proceed to break up. It was great radio.

On Friday’s show on Orange and Blue 760, we got emotional Mase. It was during the third hour...

Analyzing the downfall of Paxton Lynch

The Denver Broncos opened their preseason slate with a resounding thud.  The team came out flat against the Minnesota Vikings and could not recover from a sluggish start as they lost 42-28.  Heading into 2018, all eyes have been on the quarterback position.  Even though Case Keenum went 1-for-4, he is likely to be named the starter for the Broncos’ first regular season game on September 9.  That left Paxton Lynch and Chad Kelly to battle for second-string quarterback.  A first round...

Opinion: Don’t make Elway’s answer about Kaepernick more than it was

Don’t make this about politics; it was more about football.

Denver Broncos’ GM John Elway answered a question about the likelihood of Colin Kaepernick coming to the Broncos as a veteran backup quarterback, and his answer has lit the sports world on fire.

Which is dumb.

Because his quote was nothing “anti-Kaepernick” in the way so many sports pundits wanted to make it (you know what I mean by that, but I promise, we’ll get there).

As a fellow Kaep supporter, I'm 100% with you on...

Randy Gradishar shunned yet again by the Hall of Fame

They just don’t understand real football.

We know better than to get our hopes up.

When it comes to the Denver Broncos and the Pro Football Hall of Fame, that’s how it works. If you play for the Broncos, no matter how great you were, the only way you’ll get in is if you buy a ticket to the supposed museum in Canton, Ohio, that supposedly honors the greatness of pro football.

Yet for some reason, that supposed museum refuses to accept that there were great players who did in fact play...

The Denver Broncos held joint practice sessions with the Chicago Bears the week leading up to their Week 2 preseason game on Saturday. The practice sessions were not nearly as chippy as some other joint sessions around the NFL, but Emmanuel Sanders did reportedly become Kyle Fuller’s daddy.

Elway: Vikings game was a ‘wake-up call’

Starting fast is not as important to John Elway as playing well. But he’d like to see his team’s offense play a lot better. Like the rest of us.

Training camp has officially ended and so has the euphoria that comes with the early beginnings of a new season, a new crop of athletes and new optimism.

Now it’s all business.

“To be a great football team, you’ve got to play good defense and you’ve got to have something offensively that you can move, put points on the board and not beat...

Emmanuel Sanders on Kyle Fuller: ‘I guess I have a son.’

It looks like Chicago Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller has a new daddy. His name is Emmanuel Sanders.

The Denver Broncos concluded their two joint practice sessions with the Chicago Bears on Thursday and one player had a lot of fun at the expense of another. That player was Emmanuel Sanders.

He reportedly abused cornerback Kyle Fuller over and over again on Wednesday and on Thursday. Someone said Fuller had a new dad and Sanders definitely heard them say it.

MHR Live: Training camp denouement

Have we witnessed the death of the #NoFlyZone? Not quite, but the shift from the Broncos being a defensive team to returning as an offensive prowess is near... If not here already.

It is possible and possibly even probable that yesterday was the unofficial switch in power and control with the Denver Broncos. The offense seems especially veteran heavy and just yesterday Demaryius Thomas compared Case Keenum to Broncos’ great Peyton Manning.

Broncos won't consider Colin Kaepernick

The Broncos may be on the lookout for quarterback help, but they won’t be calling Colin Kaepernick. The polarizing athlete will not be in consideration for Denver, GM John Elway told reporters on Thursday (Twitter link via Lindsay Jones of USA Today). “He had a chance to be here, he passed on it,” Elway said.The Broncos and 49ers discussed a possible Kaepernick trade at length in 2016, but the deal was nixed when the QB refused to trim $5M from his ’16 cap number and take...
