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 ...

Jake Plummer.These three Denver blog posts tried to get away, but we managed to round them up anyhow. Bronco Talk's Jon catches up on ex-Denver QB Jake Plummer, who's now a handball fanatic. Miss him yet, Broncos nation? Colorado Pols its list of election winners -- with Michael Bennet topp ... More >>
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, 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.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 >>
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 >>
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 >>
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 >>
Gone but not forgotten -- by one guy, anyway. Sure, the Broncos beat the Atlanta Falcons this past weekend, earning their second consecutive comeback win. But that doesn't mean everyone is convinced that young Denver QB Jay Cutler has turned the corner -- especially not the fan behind LetPlummerPl ... More >>

Brian Griese during his Broncos tenure. This weekend, the Denver Broncos take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are in the desperately sad situation of believing that quarterback Brian Griese gives them the best chance to win. Broncos fans have been here before -- from 1999 to 2002 specifically (an ... More >>
Oh Henry? Here were the choices for Denver Broncos fans who wanted to buy a jersey at a fifth-level souvenir shop at Invesco Field at Mile High last Saturday during a pre-season game against the Dallas Cowboys: Jay Cutler; Rod Smith; Javon Walker; John Lynch. And here’s the problem. Three of th ... More >>
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 ...

Ian Gold, in A Few Seconds of Panic: "Don't hug me, don't touch me, don't call me your buddy, don't tell me you love me, because I know you'll motherfuck me as soon as I leave the room." As football fans, we're conditioned to treat kickers with the same mix of disdain and dismissal their teammate ... More >>
Don’t fault Todd Sauerbraun for the Bronco’s heartbreaking loss to the Chicago Bears. Don’t put it on Dre Bly or the defense, or even give the credit to Devin Hester and his ridiculousness. No, when you spin the wheel of blame for the Sunday’s calamitous collapse, the needle will come to res ... More >>
Javon Walker is getting his knee suctioned out today. Starting offensive linemen Tom Nalen and Ben Hamilton, as well as tight ends Stephen Alexander and Nate Jackson, are finished for the year. Travis Henry awkwardly awaits appeal on a suspension that could end his season, and possibly his tenure in ... More >>
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 >>
Resurrecting the Champ, a Josh Hartnett-Samuel L. Jackson film set in Denver, opened on August 24, and local reviewers gave the movie the hometown discount: Robert Denerstein, writing his first critique for the Rocky Mountain News since accepting a buyout from the tabloid, pinned the piece with a B- ...

A former Denverite was the star of the Super Bowl commercials.
The first pair of columns by the Denver Post's Woody Paige since his return from New York City, where he'd spent the past two years hamming it up on ESPN2's Cold Pizza, didn't brim with surprises. At various times, the pieces (which ran yesterday and today, respectively) were dopey, confusing and co ... More >>
Who's ready for some Fantasy Congress?
Jake Plummer didn't need any more bad press -- but he sure as hell got some anyway. His alleged role in what's been characterized as a road rage incident filled news pages and airwaves yesterday; thus far, the coverage shows no sign of waning. It does appear to be getting weirder, though. This morni ... More >>
