Seriously? Are we looking at the same team? New Coach, Quarterback, Offensive and Defensive scheme's - I am a Bronco fan but even I can smell 6-10 in the water.
Its getting paved you idiot, lol, this race is more like the best race on the planet,. :) I dont know how it can generate dust if its almost 75% paved, this race deserves more credit than it gets. Maybe you should just try coming to the race sometime and see what I mean. No one is going to listen to you. The race made more of a profit this year than they have ever made, and it is a huge money maker for buisnesses and hotels around the area. There I am done.
Dumbest Race on the Planet. Hands Down. My City does not have the money to fund basic Park and Recreation services for citizens of this city, but we can fund a dangerous race that serves only the pleasure of many out of town drivers who don't even pay taxes here. Routon ought to go interview the caretakers on Pikes Peak. They told representatives of the North Slope Committee 25 years ago that the Pikes Peak Hill Climb generates more dust pollution all over the forests up there than any other day of the year. That's right. The NUMBER ONE pollution event each year.
The NFL draft is the greatest. As a Bronco fan this draft and its picks will determine whether or not Josh McTrainwreck has any hope of winning back disappointed fans. The Cutler situation was pathetic. Hopefully this won't be another deer in the headlights moment for the boy coach.
There is still hope for saving these programs.

I doubt the SCAC opponents who CC's administration left in the lurch would be interested in playing a meaningless non-conf game here. And the student-athletes, sad to say, are frantically trying to transfer to some place that gives a d**n. The CC administration purposefully waited to make the announcement so that the program's disintegration would be a fait d'accompli.
Football is one of those sports that seems to be either loved or hated by students, alums and fans.It is easy to see it as another example of violence in violent times.
What it gives to young men is hard to measure but the life's lessons taught through the team concept not only last throughout a lifetime but help shape the lives of its players.
I attended CSU-Pueblo to pay football after my original school cancelled its program. That school's image has drastically changed both nationally and regionally. CSU-Pueblo actually dropped its program only to revive it to increase enrollment. (up 60% for first year students and 11% for the entire student body). Did CC communicate with CSU-Pueblo before they gave the death sentence to a vital and, apparently, unappreciated program?
I didn't even know they had a football team. Guess that says something about the "marketing". God knows we hear enough about the Hockey
Hi I do not know a thing about soap operas. But, I do know that all a person needs to do is ADD UP all the offensive points Cutler has put up. Nothing was wrong with the offensive line and certainly not Jay Cutler. WHY try to fix something that is not BROKEN !!! Fix the DEFENSE... josh mcdanials is a fool to not focus on fixing the defense. You are right the owner needs to take control.
Thanks for allowing me to get that off my chest.
My memory of the events after the final game of the 1977 season are very different than yours. I personally went to the locker room doors and told the press that the team unanimously decided not to let them in. If you were in the locker room and intimidated by Leon White it may have been because you were not supposed to be in there.
On the matter of no bowl game in 1977, it was because Athletic Director Crowder would not accept a bowl game offer because of some personal issue of his. To this day I can't forgive Crowder for spoiling my opportunity to go to a bowl game.
On Crowder's comment that Mallory was somehow over-rated, please note that Mallory's teams won 62% of the time which is the same as McCartney. I am of the opinion that Crowder fired Mallory so he could bring in his crony Chuck Fairbanks.
Nice article, but I take issue with one of your comments under the won't reach 10-5 section. You write that with Prater we no longer have a shot at a 57 yard field goal to save a game, that we can only count on short field goals. You have it exactly backwards. Elam is automatic from 40 yards in but can longer hit really long field goals or reach the end zone on kickoffs. Prater can do both but hasn't yet established himself as being reliable from 40 yards or shorter.
I totally agree with this analysis of the Broncos. Their defense looks suspect to say the least. Offense might be okay but special teams will kill them once again.
Everyone else in the world ranks by Gold medals, including the IOC offical medal count. The problem with ranking by total medals is precisely that it devalues gold. Someone said it best that it is ludicrous that under a total medal count - a country with 100 bronze medals would be ranked higher than a country with 99 gold medals. Although fractions of a second may not seem like much to you, at a world class performance level the difference between gold and anything less is striking. Those media who made a big deal about the USA losing the gold medal race to China are correct. It is no "crock". The era of American sport dominance is ended and the Chinese have set the new athletic standard. That, is how the rest of the world will see it.
What happened to Casey Burgener is unconscionable! How can they keep changing the requirements? Now, he will probably leave the sport and US will lose one of it's best Olympic Lifters.
I will be the first to admit we in Bronco Nation can be the biggest homers. We bleed orange and blue.
However, I believe you need to take a closer look at what you speak about. One of the first things I noticed is you said Boss Bailey was brought in to play the middle. This is not true. He was brought in to play the strong side linebacker. DJ Williams will play the weak side linebacker. And, Niko Koutouvides was brought in to play the middle linebacker.
I also don't think the wide receiver depth is as "alarmingly thin", as you say. Other off-season additions include, Keary Colbert, Darrell Jackson, Sammie Parker, Eddie Royal(R). Not to mention the receivers we already have on the team including Brandon Marshall, and the "slot machine" Brandon Stokley.
The hole left by Matt Lepsis. Is to be filled by our 1st round draft choice Ryan Clady. Projected pro-bowler. Obviously, we will have to wait and see.
Also, one of the biggest holes we had in the off-season was filled with big DT Dewayne Robertson, via trade.
I for one think Shanahan didn't an excellent job of filling the holes that you speak of. Through inexpensive free-agents, as well as through the draft. Research!
They haven't lost all of their blindly faithful fans. I think we have a legitiment chance to be a playoff contender this year. If our defensive tackles do a remotely good job, we could actually be very good.
I know. I was giddy when our second-round pick came up and Sweed was still on the board. So was Early Doucet. So was Kelly. Heck, if you want a return man so badly, so was DeSean Jackson. I disagree that the second round is too early to pick up a return WR-- when you've got a potent weapon returning kicks, it changes the whole game (i.e., Hester). Better field position: how is this not an all-around good thing? And God knows our special teams are hurting right now.
So imagine how much I screamed at the TV when Royal was picked. Granted, size isn't everything: look at Steve Smith (CAR). But when you are desperately needing a big-play threat and the 3 of the top 5 WRs are still on the board?
Sigh. Maybe next year Shanahan will no longer be omnipotent in Bowlen's eyes after another losing season.
Blah blah blah.. oh pity the poor oppressed people of Tibet... Of course, they were pretty well oppressed BEFORE the Chinese came to play. Heck, many historians who don't have a severe case of Lama-Love figure things are better for the average citizen of Tibet now than they were under the bizarre reincarnational dictatorship they lived under prior to the Chinese invasion.
Or you can believe that Steven Segal has a deeper understanding of world history. Your choice.
Back in 1980 the Taliban were our friends for whom we supplied weapons to fight the Soviets. Now those same weapons are being used to kill and maim our occupying forces.
As for the boycott of China and Chinese made items, it is too late to be effective. Just wait until the Chinese control the world's food supply. The only positive result will be a sudden cure for America's obesity epidemic.
