Denver blog posts are warming up. Purple Row's Jay Tymkovich previews the latest Rockies game to be played in football weather. Big Media's Jason Salzman listens to the gun activist who thinks Colorado sheriffs should arrest federal officials if necessary to protect the Second Amendment. South St ... More >>
It's official: Elvis Dumervil, a vaunted sack-master and feared presence on the Broncos defensive line for seven years, is now officially a member of the Baltimore Ravens. How did this disastrous turn of events take place? For reasons that are at least as stupid as the ones that ended with quarterb ... More >>
Watching Ray Lewis acting like the king of the world after playing a thoroughly ordinary game, and seeing Joe Fluke-o named MVP after the Baltimore Ravens' Super Bowl victory yesterday was enough to make me nearly throw up my seven-layer dip. Fortunately, Las Vegas sports books give our Denver Bronc ... More >>
My disdain for American football knows no bounds, and I don't believe in wasting my Sundays watching testosterone-addled meatheads run up and down a field with the hopes of placing a ball. In honor of yesterday's Super Bowl game -- as well as all the attendant hoopla -- I created a poem that follows ... More >>
How did local Ravens and 49ers fans spend Super Bowl Sunday? Plenty of them headed to bars catering to their respective teams: Chopper's Sports Grill for Baltimore boosters, the Icehouse Tavern for San Francisco faithful. Photog Brandon Marshall stopped by both places to sample the agony and the ecs ... More >>
As we head into the Super Bowl, most Broncos fans are still smarting from our defeat by the Ravens, who are playing in our place. And we're asking ourselves, "What do we need to get over the hump next year?" Another running back? Sure, that'd be good. Maybe some help in the secondary, and another pa ... More >>
Mayor Michael Hancock delayed paying off a wager with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake because of an injury. The terms? If the Broncos lost to the Ravens (which they did), Hancock would send a box of steaks to Maryland aaaand do the Ray Lewis dance. Well, the mayor is healed and has made goo ... More >>
The first time John Oliver agreed to do an interview with Westword, Michael Roberts noted the utter futility of pointing out when either party -- but mostly the "humble scribe" -- laughed due to the ubiquitous chortles throughout. Five years later, Humble Scribe No. 2 (aka, yours truly), could have ... More >>
We're not going to lie here: The fact that the Baltimore Ravens are heading for the Big Easy next weekend instead of our beloved Broncos stings more than the time we faceplanted on the playground in third grade and mom had to pluck shards of gravel from our mangled paw and then finished it off with ... More >>
Derrick Martin's team, the New England Patriots, fell to the Baltimore Ravens in a brutal AFC Championship Game loss on Sunday -- but it's hardly the worst thing that happened to him and those he loves on that day. During the evening, the Aurora home of this Colorado native was invaded by two armed ... More >>
The final tally from last weekend's NFL playoff game goes beyond the scoreboard for Colorado: Colorado also lost twelve prime lamb chops that Governor John Hickenlooper shipped across the country to Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley to pay off a bet debt. But first, he ate a little crow on the steps ... More >>
Triple M sheep, destined for Maryland?Governor John Hickenlooper is grilling lamb chops on the steps of the State Capitol this afternoon, in advance of mailing a package of a dozen lamb chops from the Triple M Bar Ranch in Manzanola to Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley, to settle their bet on last S ...

Before Saturday's Broncos-Ravens playoff game, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock made a friendly wager with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. If Denver won, Rawlings-Blake promised to send a platter of broiled crab cakes. If Baltimore won, Hancock agreed to mail a box of dry-aged "cowboy cut" rib ... More >>
The Broncos' loss to the Ravens on Saturday was agonizing, and not just because we (like pretty much everyone else) inaccurately predicted an easy Denver win. But let's put things in perspective, shall we? In our opinion, there have been five Broncos playoff defeats that were even worse. Make yourse ... More >>
And we thought the Broncos orange cowboy hat that Mayor Michael Hancock sported yesterday as grand marshal of the Stock Show parade downtown represented the ultimate cultural collision in couture. But just a block away, an icky icon has been gussied up in honor of "United in Orange Friday." Finally, ... More >>
We've already gone on record with our fearless prediction of a Broncos win over the Baltimore Ravens in tomorrow's playoff game -- and the folks at Denver Broncos Memes are just as confident. Check out a gallery of our favorites below. It's a great way to celebrate what's been officially designated ... More >>
As the Broncos and the Ravens gear up to face off this Saturday, trying to extend their seasons at least one more game, one illustrious player faces what is possibly the final game of his career. After this season's playoffs, Ray Lewis says he'll put down the pads for good. He'll never play another ... More >>
Today is officially "Dress Western Day," with a parade through downtown Denver marking the kick-off of the 107th National Western Stock Show; tomorrow is "United in Orange Friday," pushing this town's other show ponies, the Denver Broncos. What's a busy mayor to wear?
Remember that golden moment from a November 2011 Denver-San Diego game when Chargers kicker Nick Novak was seen pissing on live TV? Apparently, the Broncos wanted a similar splash of magic going into their Saturday playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens. That's our conclusion after seeing a team- ... More >>
Now we know who the Broncos will face in their 2013 playoffs debut: the Baltimore Ravens, by dint of the squad's 24-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. So...will the emotion from Ray Lewis's final home game (depicted in videos included in a big collection of clips below) help the Ravens def ... More >>
Attention, everybody. It is flu season. Know how we can tell? Because during last night's game against the San Antonio Spurs, Nugget Kenneth Faried -- the Manimal, if you will -- puked into a towel while sitting on the bench. But that didn't stop the dude from scoring nineteen points to help the Nug ... More >>
Sunday's Broncos-Ravens match-up looked to be the most difficult on Denver's second-half-of-the-season schedule -- a road game against a division-leading team whose quarterback, Joe Flacco, continues to chirp about how he and his squad are among the NFL's elite. They sure as hell didn't look like it ... More >>
Yeah, I know: It's ridiculous. We ought to be celebrating the Broncos' 26-13 victory over the Raiders in Oakland last night. After all, it's Denver's eighth straight win, and it keeps alive the chance that the team could move up in playoffs seeding. But damn it if Peyton Manning's transformation of ... More >>
Denver blog posts make a statement -- and sometimes more than one. Bronco Talk's Jon Heath notes that injured Ravens mainstay Ray Lewis hopes to return for Baltimore's match-up against Denver. But we think he shouldn't rush back.... At WhoSaidYouSaid, Ben De Grow argues for an opt-in for teacher's ... More >>
willismcgahee.comThree Denver Broncos will be going to the Pro Bowl this year -- the NFL's annual all-star game in Hawaii, and all of them, cornerback Champ Baily, defensive end Elvis Dumervil and rookie linebacker Vonn Miller, are deserving of the honor. They've been highlight films into the ... More >>
Kyle Orton.CBS4 has been touting the Broncos' 24-22 win over the Cincinnati Bengals yesterday by noting that the team is tied for first place in the AFC West -- which is technically true but does nothing to put the game into a larger context. Because while Denver deserves credit for prevailin ... More >>
Ubaldo Jimenez.This weekend, Ubaldo Jimenez, the greatest pitcher in Colorado Rockies history, is expected to make his first start for the Cleveland Indians. Which got us to thinking: What pro athletes who left Colorado teams either by choice or force have been most painful for local fans to ... More >>
Josh McDaniels.The speed with which Josh McDaniels's Denver Broncos career went south was absolutely stunning -- and we documented every misstep. Below, we've linked to and excerpted from twenty posts over twenty months that tell the tale, from personnel mistakes involving the likes of Jay Cu ... More >>
Laurence Maroney.Last week, we suggested that based on her performance in a familiar Snickers commercial, Betty White would be an upgrade over the current Broncos running backs -- a reference that, truth be told, we thought was kinda funny. But after yesterday's worse-than-the-score-implies 3 ... More >>
Kyle Orton.Who gets the credit for the Broncos' wholly unexpected 26-20 win over the Tennessee Titans yesterday? Kyle Orton -- with a big assist from the Titans' game plan, which kept the predominantly orange men in a contest they had no business winning but (happily) managed to do anyway. Bu ... More >>
Kyle Orton.Did you ever expect Kyle Orton to throw for 476 yards in a Broncos uni? Probably not. Did you ever think you'd see him toss a pass like that 48-yard touchdown strike to Brandon Lloyd? Doubt it. Did you expect to see the Broncos lose to the Colts by two touchdowns? Yup -- and here ... More >>
A Flickr photoJarvis Green is coming to the Broncos from New England? How unusual!Pat Bowlen opened up his wallet in recent days, signing three strong defensive linemen: Jarvis Green (formerly with -- surprise! -- New England), Jamal Williams (an ex-Charger) and Justin Bannan (a Baltimore Rav ...

Fans at the last Broncos game had a ripping good time with giveaway team photos.Watching the first round of the NFL playoffs this weekend, one thought kept flashing through my mind: Thank goodness the Broncos aren't playing. Don't get me wrong. As a Colorado native, Broncos fandom is part of ... More >>
Woody Paige has painted a target on Kyle Orton's back.You had to know it'd happen about now -- and that Woody Paige would be the instigator. When the Broncos were 6-0, Kyle Orton was the toast of the town -- or at least no one was referring to him as toast, as fans had been doing before the ... More >>
Last night's Broncos-Steelers game was déjà vu all over again -- a virtual blueprint of the previous week's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Close early thanks to Denver's unexpectedly staunch defense (and despite a costly turnover -- this time an interception). But the offense's inability to hold th ... More >>
This smile wasn't on display much yesterday.No one's deep-throating any shotguns following the Broncos' 30-7 loss to the Baltimore Ravens yesterday. The Broncos had been lucky to be 6-0 -- hell, they were fortunate to be 1-0 -- and they were more than due for a reality check. But the way the ... More >>
Mike Klis can still report -- but not prognosticate.For as long as most of us can remember, beat writers at the Denver Post have been allowed to make game predictions about teams they cover -- but no more, because of a decision by the paper's editor, Greg Moore. The dictate went public Frida ... More >>
Ray Lewis wearing his Ray Lewis costume. Horrifying.The Broncos are 6-0, while the Baltimore Ravens, who they'll play on Sunday, are 3-3. No problem, right? But the Ravens can be a terrifying team, and not just on Halloween weekend. Given a couple of breaks here and there, they could be undef ... More >>
Brandon Marshall, as captured by a police photographer. The latest report about trade-demanding wide receiver Brandon Marshall cites interest from the Baltimore Ravens, who made a play for the Arizona Cardinals' Anquan Boldin a couple of months back in an effort to give young QB Joe Flacco a credib ...
