Julius Thomas on torching Jets: It’s so f@#$ing easy!

Julius Thomas's second touchdown catch against the Jets on Sunday put Denver ahead by 24-7.

He punctuated the score by saying what everyone watching was thinking at the time, with some R-rated emphasis to boot:

Gut Reaction: Week 5 - Broncos vs Cardinals

Although the Cardinals have a good defense, they discovered one thing about playing the Denver Broncos.

Play man to man at your own risk.

Peyton Manning threw for the most yards in his career. Demaryius Thomas set a team single-game receiving record. And the Broncos nearly reached 600 yards in total offense.

This is what happens when you try and match talent with the Broncos. You find out what you knew all along.

You’re biting dust.

Final Score: Broncos 41, Cardinals 20 (Updated)

We’d love to focus on Peyton Manning’s 500th career touchdown pass, but we wouldn’t want to do so at the expense of numbers 501, 502, and 503.

Peyton threw four touchdown passes, Demaryius Thomas set a new single-game franchise record for receiving yards, and the Broncos whipped the Cardinals 41-20 (Game Book) at SAF@MH.

Thomas broke Shannon Sharpe's mark of 214 yards, established during a 2002 overtime win at Kansas City.

Gut Reaction: Week 3 - Broncos @ Seahawks

You’ll be tempted to look at the final score today and feel some sort of moral victory.

You’ll hear all the pundits next week. It will go something like this. The Broncos had to show they could hang with Seattle, they’ll say. And they did.

The Broncos never quit, they’ll say. They can build on this.

As Marcellus Wallace might say, that’s just pride f#$king with you.

Final Score: Seahawks 26, Broncos 20 (Updated)

Is there such a thing as a moral victory in a losing effort for a Super Bowl favorite?

Honestly, we're not sure.

But if there is, then perhaps Denver gained one in their 26-20 loss (Game Book) at Seattle.

After second-half collapses had left Denver holding on for one-score wins in their first two games, the Broncos outscored the Seahawks 17-3 in the third and fourth quarters on Sunday.

Gut Reaction: Week 2 - Broncos vs Chiefs

It’s one thing to say you want to keep Peyton Manning off the field and control the clock.

It’s an entirely different thing to actually get it done.

Give the Chiefs credit. They barely gave the Broncos the ball in the second half, and they converted a ton of long third downs.

It got so bad, John Fox later joked his defense was operating as a “ball-control” defense.

Final Score: Broncos 24, Chiefs 17

For the second straight week, the Broncos (2-0) jumped out to a big lead and held on for a narrow seven-point victory.

A comfortable 21-10 halftime lead became a tight 24-17 result (Gamebook) which came down to the final seconds and an incomplete pass by Alex Smith.

Peyton Manning was 21/26 for 242 yards and three touchdowns.

Kansas City (0-2) finished with more first downs (28-19) and total yards (380-325), and dominated the time of possession (36:14-23:46).
