The Most Important Moments From the Denver Broncos Preseason

As the NFL Preseason Ends, here is a look back at the most important conversations around the Denver Broncos this year. Let’s treat the preseason with the reverence and respect it deserves.

The preseason exists so that the NFL can receive more money from its season ticket holders and TV affiliates. Its role includes boring football and injuries to key players. With that in mind, a lot of really interesting things happened to the Denver Broncos this pre-season. Unfortunately, most of the conversations were about Trevor Siemian vs. Paxton Lynch.

Still, here were my favorites (real and imagined): Continue reading “The Most Important Moments From the Denver Broncos Preseason”

Urging Denver Broncos Fans to Fight Their Prejudice

This column is for fans tired of the Denver Broncos quarterback debate between Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian in training camp.

I’m in the third camp for the Paxton Lynch vs. Trevor Siemian debate. I believe that the conversation is overhyped to the point of foolishness. I reluctantly delve into the mind-numbing nature of the Paxton Lynch vs. Trevor Siemian debate. I hope that some fans agree that the Broncos should field the best team regardless of the preferred quarterback.

We are now in the realm of the “Us vs. Them” mentality when it comes to the Siemian vs Lynch Denver Broncos starting quarterback debate. The other side is the enemy. Continue reading “Urging Denver Broncos Fans to Fight Their Prejudice”

Not Another NFL Head Injuries Column

It’s time for Denver Broncos Training Camp, which means you’re probably forcing yourself to not think about how many head injuries will take place over the next seven months that will have long-term implications for NFL Players. These NFL Players need our help.

Literally, everything that needs to be said about them has been said. Without a dramatic shift in information, I don’t need to hear any more of these opinions. Just cite an old piece. Here’s a sample of some of those topics: Continue reading “Not Another NFL Head Injuries Column”

I’m required to write about Siemian vs. Lynch

I will lose my ability to write about Denver sports if I don’t address the Broncos Quarterback Competition between Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian.

The Denver sports mob boss is imposing. Built like a lineman, he sits in a smoky bar all day watching Denver media people. He reads all of the articles. He listens to the radio shows simultaneously. He watches each sports anchor in succession. He sees everything. He runs this sports town. He’s had one directive since January—talk about the Broncos quarterback battle.

In an extended playoff drought, breaking Denver’s dry spell

15 months have passed since the Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50. None of Denver’s four major teams have made the playoffs since then. Each team has a chance to break the drought, but none are guaranteed to do so.

Denver is no stranger to dry spells. We hide in the Rocky Mountains’ rain shadow, where the East Coast media can’t seem to find us. In between snowstorms, the last two decades have also included wildfires and water restrictions. Continue reading “In an extended playoff drought, breaking Denver’s dry spell”
