Every team talks about it - the importance of player development. What’s different at Dove Valley is that they actively push that agenda.
As John Elway often says, “We don't draft All-Pros, we have to make them."
And the Broncos do.
They bring youngsters into players-only film sessions, offer them state of the art training and nutritional monitoring, motivate them, and then see what the player gives in return.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Let's open with some key points from Peter King's latest MMQB column:
Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! Several notable rookies made their preseason debuts this weekend.
Houston linebacker Jadeveon Clowney flashed some of what made him the first overall pick, but had some rough moments as well.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! The NCAA and its shamateurism were dealt a serious legal blow on Friday.
A federal judge ruled that the organization's ban on compensating athletes is a violation of antitrust laws, blasting several holes in its contradictory claims along the way.
This, of course, was the O'Bannon case, in which the NCAA laughably tried to defend its use of player images for profit, while not sharing said profits with said players.
Forbes, trying to show Buzzfeed what it will look like when it gets old, has yet another list: Forbes' 2014 List Of America's Most Miserable Sports Cities.
Meltdown by Peyton Manning & Co. against Seattle dropped Broncos to 2-5 in Super Bowls. Nuggets have been to the NBA or ABA playoffs in more than half of their 47 seasons, with no championships.
All professional teams are listed above that, including the Colorado Avalanche and the NHL's Rockies (moved to KC, moved to NJ).
Happy Friday, Broncos fans! Let's kick off this sleep-deprived Lard with a programming note-slash-reminder.
Each week, be sure to keep checking the game recap, as we continually update it with plenty of links (articles, quotes, videos) along the way.
The idea is to have everything together, so that at any point (later in the year, or years later), you can find coverage of any game in one spot.
As much fun as it was to watch the Broncos beat the Seahawks, it was hard to make much of this preseason game.
Lighting came. It saw. It kicked everyone’s ass.
By the time the rain delay was over, the starters barely had time to take some plays off.
What do we do with this game, one that doesn’t matter to anyone other than bloggers, cheerleaders, and small-college roster hopefuls?
We mock, that's what.
Ahh, nothing like a four-hour game to kick off the preseason, amirite?!
Of course, it also wouldn’t be preseason without a new undrafted running back darling. Former Dukie Juwan Thompson racked up 59 yards on six carries, showing as much speed, vision, and toughness as one can show in a matchup of second-team units.
