The Broncos’ three-safety monster

A slow team start put the defense in a tough place, early in the Broncos' 41-17 road win over the Raiders. It was the defense that kept the Broncos in the game until they caught fire.

The defensive line kept up steady pressure all game. Despite not having a sack, they kept creating hurries and QB hits. They shut down the Raiders' run attack. The Denver secondary played exceptionally well in both the run and pass areas.

Two players led the way for the secondary: T.J. Ward and Quinton Carter. It wasn’t their stats so much as their attitude, which was contagious. Combining them with Rahim Moore is working well. Adding cornerbacks Chris Harris, Bradley Roby, and Aqib Talib makes them that much more physical. All three corners like to mix it up.

A Second Helping of Denver’s Week 10 win at Oakland

With the hangover of another loss at New England still in the backs of their minds, the Broncos could have been excused if they'd gone to Oakland hoping for a simple victory.

What they found is what a lot of teams have found this season. Oakland is a much better team than they usually show on the field. That doesn’t minimize the Raiders’ singular ability to shoot themselves in the foot.

Denver brought its own set of problems into what may be their final visit to the Coliseum. Problem 1 on the list has been the erratic play of their offensive line. Despite attempts to change it, the line has let down the running game this year more weeks than not. Few, if any, running backs consistently break tackles in their own backfield. The laws of inertia are against them.

PFF finally thinks Derek Wolfe is pretty good

Good Morning, Broncos fans! As the season lengthens, each game has less of an effect on a team's statistical rankings.

Indeed, Denver's placement among the measures we follow remains steady.

Broncos think better of signing huge jerk, at least for now

The Broncos' visit with Richie Incognito reportedly "went well," but apparently not enough so to sign the jerk.

According to Incognito's workout partner and pretend journalist Jay Glazer, Denver will revisit the idea after their games at St. Louis and against Miami.

Broncos worked out Richie Incognito

Maybe John Elway doesn't like the Broncos' new status as America's most popular team.

Or, he thinks the offensive line sucks.

Either way, the Broncos worked out Richie Incognito on Monday, according to his comrade in meatheadedness Jay Glazer.

The Sanchize is back!

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Road games are supposed to be tough, but let's be honest - the Rams are terrible, especially in the fourth quarters of games.

Sure, they have a couple of big divisional wins over the Seahawks and Niners, but there's something about divisional matchups.

And of course, there are quite a few teams that have beaten the Seahawks and Niners this year.
