What made yesterday's 24-17 Broncos win over the Chargers even more satisfying for Denver fans was the opportunity to see QB Philip Rivers, the man we love to hate, laid low after a week of hype about San Diego supposedly being a team of destiny thanks to Rivers's bolo-tie mojo. Afterward, jubilant ... More >>
Chargers QB Philip Rivers, who Broncos fans love to hate, will bring his many ridiculous expressions to Denver on Sunday for a playoff match-up against the Broncos. No doubt he'll be wearing a bolo tie of the sort that San Diego boosters see as a good-luck charm -- hence their declaration of today a ... More >>
Outside of January, when the National Western Stock Show is in town, you don't see a lot of bolo ties in Colorado anymore, even though they're as much a part of Western garb as cowboy boots. "Bolo ties are not a high-volume seller," says Rockmount Ranch Wear owner Steve Weil, whose grandfather, Jack ... 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 >>
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 >>
What would have been worse for a Broncos fan in San Diego than not being able to see Denver's amazing comeback win over the Chargers live and in person on Monday night? Missing the entire game because someone had knocked you unconscious, presumably for daring to wear a Broncos jersey into Qualcomm S ... More >>
Admit it: When the Broncos went into a 24-0 hole versus the Chargers, you thought the squad would mount a second-half redemption effort that would fall short, just as happened with Atlanta, Houston and New England. But a funny thing happened on the way to predictability: The Broncos sapped the Bolts ... More >>

How outrageous are gas prices these days? Outrageous enough that a professional athlete who just signed a multi-million-dollar contract is bitching about them. The baller in question is ex-Broncos receiver Eddie Royal. Check out this photo he recently posted to his Facebook page.
After the Broncos' shocking playoffs victory over the Steelers, we noted that Tim Tebow's 316 yards through the air echoed John 3:16, a Biblical verse he used to write in his eye black. Building on that theme, Free Colorado's Ari Armstrong sets out to prove that Tebow's passing stats throughout the ... More >>
Video below.Did watching Jesus perform miracles ever become routine? No -- and we're sure as heaven not bored seeing Tim Tebow do likewise week after week. But thanks and praise for the Broncos 16-13 win over San Diego must be shared with The Chosen One's apostles. Especially Saint Von Mill ... More >>
On Sunday, while Tim Tebow fans prayed that God would grant the Broncos a victory over the San Diego Chargers, we prayed that the generous pours of vodka in our Bloody Marys wouldn't make us tumble off our bar stools. Can you guess where I'm drinking? Special bonus: Anyone who gives the first cor ... More >>
What was even more amazing about the Broncos' latest come-from-behind win with Tim Tebow at the helm? The apparent fact that CBS held a shot of San Diego Chargers kicker Nick Novak -- who missed two key field goals this afternoon -- draining his lizard during fourth quarter crunch time. Don't belie ... More >>
We'll have whatever these folks are having, and make ours a double. Seriously. Having suffered through what was, without question, one of the worst Broncos seasons in our lifetime, we were simply hoping that the team would just go gently into that good night against the Chargers. Not so with this ... More >>
Philip Rivers.San Diego QB Philip Rivers not only wins games. He also wins the Terrible Sportsmanship triffecta: He's a bad winner, a bad loser and, I'd be willing to bet, bad when he ties. Rivers has raised assholery to an art form, which only makes the 35-14 hurting he and the Chargers put ... More >>
Tim Tebow.Good news, Broncos fans: SB Nation editor Andrew Sharp advises bettors to put their money on the Broncos versus San Diego on Monday.

Tim Tebow.Denver Broncos fans have been spoiled for a long time. Football games here sell out every year, so we don't have to deal with the agony of TV black outs. Ask Chargers lovers in San Diego -- where an ocean-full of games have been blacked out over the years because of the NFL's stupid ... More >>
"Do I look like a cult leader to you?"Not many blog-post comments earn items of their own -- but that was the case with a screed on a Bleacher Report piece arguing why fans should root for Tim Tebow over questionable role models like Donte Stallworth, Ben Roethlisberger and Michael Vick. Ind ... More >>
Paging Neil Young: Saw what you did with "Pants on the Ground" last week on Jimmy Fallon. Good times. Call us crazy, but this one has your name written all over it. No?

We'll leave it to the shrinks and pundits to try to figure out which Broncos team is going to show up in Kansas City next week. Will it be the upstarts who shocked just about everybody for six games? The head cases who fell flat against the Redskins and were absolutely impotent against the Ch ... More >>
Chris Simms looking as dumbfounded on the sidelines as he did in the game.As soon as I saw that Chris Simms was starting under center for the Broncos against the Chargers yesterday, I expected a loss -- a bad one.

What Eddie Royal looked like to San Diego special teams last night: a blur.As we all know, Chargers QB Philip Rivers is a dick.

Kyle Orton at Sunday's post-victory press conference.So I was sitting in an A&W in Virginia on Sunday when I received a text from one of my daughters: The Broncos were tied with the Patriots in overtime.

The match-up of the season pits San Diego against our own Rollergirls.
Ed Hochuli. When I saw "Borderline Calls Leave Broncos Steamed," the article that led off the Rocky Mountain News' post-mortem about the Broncs' ridiculous 24-17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, I nearly plotzed into my Count Chocula. Sure, there were several questionable penalties that ... More >>
The luckiest mastermind in the entire NFL. Going into Sunday's matchup between the Denver Broncos and the San Diego Chargers, I hoped for a Broncos performance that would wipe the smirk off San Diego QB/classless putz Philip Rivers' face.

At 11 a.m. or so today, July 25, the 2008 Denver Broncos are expected to officially begin training camp at their headquarters in Dove Valley. Thanks to its peaceful-sounding name, the area doesn't exactly send out a smash-'em-in-the-chops vibe, and it lacks many of the attributes that made Greeley, ... More >>
If you could predict the future, would you be a sportswriter?

When I clicked on my television Sunday afternoon, December 9, I thought all I'd see was football.

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 >>
