How do you define the Denver Broncos? Urban Dictionary is of two minds about the team, which returns from a bye week to face the Arizona Cardinals this weekend: Roughly half the definitions are nice, while an equal number of others are nasty -- and some represent a blend of the two, occasionally via ...

After watching the Broncos dismantle on the Raiders on Monday Night Football, Denver fans were left with questions like, "Should I book my Super Bowl tickets yet?" But Travis Sawrie of the real-estate blog Motovo wondered something entirely different: How long would it take Peyton to pay off my mort ... 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 >>
Post-TD Tebowing.It's gotten to the point where it's funny, at least for Broncos fans. Denver's 17-13 win over the Jets will no doubt boost sales of those Tim Tebow Jesus jerseys, as well as more comparisons between The Chosen One and His Lord and Savior, and that's understandable. After all, ... More >>
Tim Tebow.It seems like everyone has something to say about Tim Tebow (including us), whether it comes to his work ethic, his pious nature, his throwing motion, his jersey sales, his clean-livin' persona, his underwear or his potential as an actor. And sometimes, frankly, it's hard to know wh ... More >>
FlickrI'll have the slow death, please.Before the Denver Broncos take on the Raiders tonight, football fans will take on another tough tradition: tailgating. Things are already cooking in the designated tailgating lot outside of the newly renamed Sports Authority at Mile Hi. The menu for a t ... More >>
Fuck you, Michael Nutter.It's well known that Philadelphia is a cultural armpit that has never produced anything of value except for Gilbert Lewis, but the town's community of second-rate trivia geeks is apparently up to speed on random facts as posed by a cross-section of obscure Philadelphi ...

Eric Studesville.On Friday, Joe Williams, Irv Brown and other ESPN 1600 prognosticators picked the Broncos to crush the Cardinals under the theory that the team would be ultra-motivated after Coach Josh McDaniels's firing and other assorted embarrassments. But they couldn't have been more wro ... More >>
Richard Seymour in action.As a Broncos fan, I have a preternatural aversion for praising a member of the Oakland Raiders for doing anything -- especially attacking someone on the opposing team after the whistle had blown. But his punch to the face of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethl ... More >>
Josh McDaniels.After our "Top 10 Ways Josh McDaniels Has Destroyed the Denver Broncos" post last week following the team's 59-14 shellacking by the Oakland Raiders, we hoped there'd be no reason to come up with another critical list today. No such luck. The Broncos' 24-16 collapse against th ... More >>
Josh McDaniels.In yesterday's list of the top ten ways Josh McDaniels has destroyed the Denver Broncos, our number one choice noted that rather than confronting players over the team's 59-14 pasting by the hated Raiders, he went into "a private shell of misery -- precisely the wrong thing to ... More >>
Stay out.Yes, it's only the pre-season. But anyone who's ever gone to Invesco Field when the Broncos have played the Pittsburgh Steelers -- most notably during the 2006 AFC Championship game -- knows how frustrating it is to see as much black and gold as blue and orange. Steelers fans show ... More >>
"As long as it's not the Raiders..."Yesterday, ESPN spent much of its NFL Live broadcast touting Herm Edwards' idea for the San Francisco 49ers to go after both Donovan McNabb, to whom the Eagles (inexplicably) seem ready to say goodbye, and the Broncos' Brandon Marshall. Former Bronco Mark ... More >>
Josh McDaniels scratches his head at the post-game press conference. Just like the rest of us.As I was signing off prior to two weeks worth of vacation, everything seemed to be going the Broncos' way. Their next opponent, the Oakland Raiders, was in hilarious turmoil, choosing to skip over th ... More >>
Sports talk shows and blogs blew up over the weekend after cameras spied New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez eating a hot dog on the sidelines during a TV time out. Some critics have said Sanchez, who apologized after the game for some reason, was showing up the pathetic Oakland Raiders, w ... More >>
At what point will the Broncos wipe this smile off Josh McDaniels' face? Even before the hiring of new coach Josh McDaniels and the loss of quarterback Jay Cutler, even casual NFL fans knew that the team was facing a brutal 2009 schedule -- and the breakdown provided by BetFirms.com makes it clear ... More >>
So Jay Cutler's (probably) getting traded. Fine by me. He's a talented guy, sure, and he's got an arm like a diesel-powered T-shirt gun. But I like my quarterbacks savvy and cerebral and not so damn pouty when things go awry. And while Josh McDaniels has proven to be just as delusional as Cutler in ... More >>

Look closely and you'll see a player magically floating toward the upper deck of Invesco Field. A little over a week ago, we brought you a Madden 2009 preview featuring a stirring overtime victory by your Denver Broncos over the despicable Oakland Raiders.

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 itâ€™s a bad move (Lynch, though a leader, was overrated when he got here four years ago and is even more overrated now), bu ...

Who put the fan in fanatic?
Music has no borders.
If there's anything worse for a Broncos fan than watching the team gag up a victory to the hated Oakland Raiders, as took place on December 2, it's having to see the agony be rehashed and rehashed and rehashed again by every mainstream news outlet in the area. Last night, an absolutely unconscionabl ... 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 >>
