The next Broncos coach will be the team’s fourth in six seasons. Imagine if your boss changed so often. Can’t be fun. The decision to replace Vance Joseph ultimately rests on the shoulders of general manager John Elway. But it’s worth asking current players what they’re looking for in the next head man. Here’s a sampling of their responses from locker cleanout day. Linebacker Todd Davis: “As a defensive player you always want a defensive coach to come in, that’s just how it is, but I trust the staff upstairs and John Elway that they’re going to bring in the right guy. I trust whatever their decision is.” Quarterback Case Keenum: “Drawing on the qualities of coaches that I’ve played for before, somebody that instills confident in me and my teammates, somebody that’s energetic that you respect, that you know is working hard, is in the trenches and somebody that has your back. That’s a big part for me, that I … [Read more...] about Broncos Insider: What Denver players are hoping for in their next head coach

If you’re a college quarterback wanting a better-than-deserved shot at the NFL, now is your chance. If you’re an NFL team needing a franchise QB, good luck with that. The 2019 draft class isn’t exactly popping with elite quarterback talent, which is bad news for the Broncos, who, 15 games into Case Keenum’s tenure as the starter, aren’t far from making us ask if Trevor Siemian is interested in coming back. After opting to not draft a quarterback last year (which turned out to be a good decision given Baker Mayfield was off the board at No. 1 and Bradley Chubb fell into the Broncos’ lap at No. 5), Denver could well be in the market for one on Day 1 come April 25. Problem is, the already thin QB class lost even more heft Wednesday when Oregon’s Justin Herbert announced he’ll return to school next year. This news comes a week after Michigan’s Shea Patterson announced he’d do the same thing. In that case, what options are there … [Read more...] about Denver Sports Omelette: If the Broncos are going to draft a quarterback in 2019, their options are limited
Alright baseball fans, we are going back into the archives to talk about the Denver Bears and a special player they had back in 1984: George H.W. Bush. Yes, former President George H.W. Bush played for the Denver Bears in 1984. Bush was the sitting vice president at the time and took part in an old-timers game on July 12 at Mile High Stadium with the Denver Bears. Though he didn’t start the game, Bush came in the fourth inning, played first base and got an at-bat. This at-bat was one for the books as Bush hit a line drive single off Hall of Famer Warren Spahn. Spahn is well known in the baseball world, and being an old-timers game there were sure to be some other big names around the field, so we might as well list a few others who played: Ernie Banks, Brooks Robinson, Billy Martin, Bob Feller and Joe DiMaggio are a few names that may ring a bell. Bush was no stranger to the diamond playing at Yale, where he appeared in back-to-back College World Series for the Bulldogs … [Read more...] about Denver Sports Omelette: Remembering when George H.W. Bush played for the Denver Bears back in 1984
Reconsider the Broncos’ thrilling victory versus the Steelers last week with a specific focus. Undrafted players in the spotlight. There was running back Phillip Lindsay, of course, cracking 100 yards rushing with a score. But don’t forget about cornerback Chris Harris’ interception. Or tight end Matt LaCosse’s first career touchdown. Or safety Darian Stewart’s fumble recovery. Or Colby Wadman’s 46-yard net punting average. The Broncos are flush with undrafted talent. And, more might be on the way. Linebacker Jeff Holland starred last season at Auburn with 10 sacks and first-team All-SEC honors. But he went undrafted, signed with the Broncos and got cut from the initial 53-man roster. Holland cleared waivers, returned to Denver’s practice squad, and after the team cut linebacker A.J. Johnson this week, Holland earned an active roster promotion. Coach Vance Joseph wouldn’t confirm whether Holland will suit up at the … [Read more...] about Broncos Insider: Might linebacker Jeff Holland be Denver’s next undrafted standout?
