Good Morning, Broncos fans! With the regular season set to end tonight, possible coaching and front office changes remain front and center:
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Raiders Week just ain't what it used to be, is it?
This has been particularly true during the Peyton Manning era, during which the Broncos have prevailed in five blowouts in five tries. The average score in those games has been 35-14 (14.2 to be exact, since Oakland needs every tenth of a point it needs here).
Of course, that's how most Raiders games have gone for several years now, no matter the opponent (Chiefs and Chargers the exceptions).
Happy Friday, Broncos fans! Lost in the shuffle of Monday night's difficult loss was another big performance from C.J. Anderson.
The emergent back totaled 138 yards and a touchdown on 26 touches, giving him 1,066 yards and seven touchdowns for the season, on just 198 touches.
Anderson has produced at least 119 yards in five of the seven games since he became Denver's lead back. He had 96 yards against San Diego two weeks ago, and although he tallied only 58 yards on 21 touches (all carries, strangely) versus Buffalo, there were three touchdowns among them.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Peyton Manning is coming back next season. Really, is there any better Christmas gift than that?
Of course not. He might be injured, or his arm strength deteriorating. Whatever has been going on with him physically, it's clear that Denver's offensive line problems have been too great for him to overcome. Those can be addressed in the offseason, and they surely will be.
But let's worry about those issues later. The Broncos have at least two more games to play.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! It turns out that Denver has a couple of paths to a first-round bye beyond a win at Oakland or a Cincy loss at Pittsburgh. However, each scenario involves a tie:
Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! Man, it's funny (not funny) how the story changes so quickly.
One moment, the Broncos are a team transformed, with an old school offense and defense that are going to carry them through the playoffs, and even through Foxboro if need be. Then they get punched in the mouth for 25 minutes straight, and realize they need to actually let their best player throw the ball some.
Three straight touchdowns later, and we're all thinking happy Super Bowl thoughts again. At least, we are until Britton Colquitt does his thing and Peyton Manning throws a pair of horrid interceptions.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Here's a look at some of the latest coaching news and rumors:
Good Morning, Broncos fans! The AFCW is unlikely to have three playoff teams for the second year in a row, but it may have two, after the Chargers pulled off a remarkable 38-35 overtime comeback win at San Francisco on Saturday night.
San Diego (9-6) trailed 21-0 early, 28-7 at halftime, and 35-21 late into the fourth quarter, but were led back by Philip Rivers, who countered three interceptions on the night with four touchdown passes. His final scoring pass came with 29 seconds remaining, tying the game at 35.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Jim Harbaugh and his next coaching gig remain the football world's top story.
According to Adam Schefer, Harbaugh's family and friends are pushing him to return to his alma mater, the University of Michigan. Per Schefter, Harbaugh's own preference is to remain in the NFL, as has been widely suggested.
It doesn't seem like a situation that will take very long to play out though, as recruiting is in full swing; Schefter's report suggests Harbaugh would have to accept the Michigan job within a couple of weeks, if at all.
Happy Friday, Broncos fans! The NFL's slate of mostly awful Thursday night games came to an appropriate conclusion, with a matchup between 2-12 teams.
That race is likely coming down to the Titans and Bucs. The Raiders, who are 2-12 like Tampa Bay, lose strength of schedule tiebreakers to both teams, and thus need an outright worse record to move into the top draft slot.
