    Tim Tebow's latest defenders: Bill Cosby and former Secretary of Education William Bennett

    Bill Cosby.​Tim Tebow's NFL rise has done more than boost the Broncos' chances of making the playoffs. It's inspired musical tributes, tattoos and Tumblrs, the naming of racehorses and a slew of testimonials from celebrities and pundits from beyond the world of sports. The latest examples of ...

Miss him yet, Broncos nation? Colorado Pols its list of election winners -- with Michael Bennet topp ... More >>

    Brady Quinn's already got fans -- and Mark Kiszla -- drinking the Kool-Aid

    Yes, ladies, he is scrumptious. But can he play?​New acquisition Brady Quinn is the Broncos' savior? Anyone who watched the former Cleveland signal caller's ineptitude during the Browns' 27-6 loss to the Broncos last season should have a hard time offering hosannas -- but that didn't stop a ca ...

    Kyle Orton: Not very good, but a really good guy

    Kyle Orton, swell fellow.​The Broncos' miracle win against the Cincinnati Bengals has inspired the sort of out-of-proportion optimism among fans that will almost certainly be crushed, and crushed brutally, a few weeks from now -- especially as it concerns quarterback Kyle Orton, who had a mise ...

    Kyle Orton looking like Brian Griese 2.0

    Kyle Orton.​Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton received mostly positive reviews for his performance in Saturday's preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks -- so much so that most of the local media, in particular, seemed to ignore the fact that the Denver crew lost 27-13. But while Orton's stat ... More >>

    Can't go to Broncos training camp? Read Stefan Fatsis's A Few Seconds of Panic instead

    ​The Broncos start training camp today, and, sure, you could go watch. But unless you sneak into the locker room and hide behind Brandon Marshall's ego, going to camp won't give you even a hint of what life is really like for the Broncos. For that, you'll have to hit your favorite bookseller. ... More >>

    The Jay Cutler-Jeff George comparison gets a new twist

    In "Is Jay Cutler the Reincarnation of Jeff George?," a January 30 blog, I noted a quote that appeared deep in a Denver Post interview with former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer. "He's a great quarterback, don't get me wrong," Plummer said about Cutler. "I'm not saying anything to disrespect him. ... More >>

    Is Jay Cutler the reincarnation of Jeff George?

    Given that former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer has a Paul Bunyon-size ax to grind, it's no surprise that his criticism of former coach Mike Shanahan is sharp in "Shanny Firing Was 'Past Due,'" a Mike Klis piece in today's Denver Post. But arguably more interesting than the Snake's sense that Sha ... More >>

    Brian Griese's Broncos history blessedly forgotten

    Brian Griese during his Broncos tenure.

    The Broncos are expected to release Pro Bowl safety John Lynch this week (he's expected to make an announcement later today, July 31), and that worries me, not because I think it’s a bad move (Lynch, though a leader, was overrated when he got here four years ago and is even more overrated now), bu ...

    Mike Shanahan and the Dickery of Genius

    Mike Shanahan is an asshole -- but he's our asshole. The whole notion of icing a kicker about to attempt a game-winning field goal likely goes back to the days when the pigskin was actually covered in a pig's skin. But no one's ever timed a time-out more irritatingly, and more astonishingly, than S ... More >>
