If you are a fan of the NFL, it is likely that you have a strong opinion about the Oakland Raiders. Similar to the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots, the Raiders are one of those franchises that spark either deep love or deep hate from fans. Here are some reason to hate the Raiders.
1. Owner Al Davis was known for being a rebel in a league full of conservative owners. Davis was known for doing things his way, and this turned off a lot of fans of other teams, Read the rest of this entry »

The 2009 season played out like an M. Night Shyamalan script, with the Broncos cruising out to an undefeated record over their first 6 games before being flipped on their heads, losing 8 of 10 down the stretch.Â A lot of the Broncos’ early season success can be attributed to their schedule.Â With new head coach Josh McDaniels donning the head coach headsets for the first time in his career and quarterback Kyle Orton making the move from Chicago, forced to learn an entirely new playbook, few in the NFL expected the Broncos to make any sort of early move towards the top the standings.Â In fact, the 2009 season unfolded exactly opposite of what one would anticipate, triumphantly succeeding at the onset before crashing and burning at the point where they should have first been coming together as a team. Last year’s first 3 games were against some of the few teams in the league experts projected to finish as bad as worse than the Broncos.Â The Bengals, who actually turned out to be the real surprise story of 2009, http://www.directstartv.com/localchannels/, surrendered a last second miracle catch by Brandon Stokely, to give the Broncos a win in what should have probably been an opening week loss.Â From there, momentum carried the club past lowly Cleveland and Oakland, both of whom the Broncos routed, building confidence along the way for the new quarterback and the new coaches system.Â Surprising and impressive victories over the Cowboys, Patriots and Chargers took the team into its bye week with a perfect record.Â A 30 to 7 pounding at the hands of the Ravens began the downward spiral that consumed the second half of the season.Â A young, unproven team became overconfident and did not know how to react when faced with adversity.

For many years, the Denver Broncos have had a number of fine running backs. When the rushing offense was combined with the passing of John Elway, it led to Super Bowl success. In recent years, most of Denver’s top running backs have come from the University of Georgia starting with Terrell Davis.
Terrell Davis was chosen by the Broncos in the 1995 draft. During his playing career, Terrell Davis gained over 7,600 yards, won the NFL MVP award, he Read the rest of this entry »

After a stellar college career at Division II Missouri Southern, Rod Smith wasn’t a high pick in the NFL Draft. As a matter of fact, Smith wasn’t drafted into the NFL at all. Originally signed by the New England Patriots, and released soon after, Rod Smith signed with the Denver Broncos and began what many consider to be one of the most underrated, under publicized careers in NFL history. Make no mistake, starting in the mid-1990s and going through the first half of the next Read the rest of this entry »

Over the course of Bronco’s history some of their best draft picks have been late round gems. Late round draft picks can be a gamble; players drafted late can become starters or they can fail to even make the practice squad. The following players were key components in the the Broncos back to back Superbowl wins in 1997 and 1998.
Center is not the most glamourous position in football, but it is one of the most important. The Broncos developed one of the NFL’s best offensive lines after drafting Tom Nalen in the 7th round in 1994. With Nalen directing the Bronco’s highly Read the rest of this entry »

After enduring a 2-year mistake commonly referred to in the Mile High Area as the “Josh McDaniels Era,” marred by the trading away of both components of one of the league’s most prolific tandems in Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall, the Denver Broncos have decided to hire perhaps the most opposite man available as McDaniels’ successor.McDaniels came up the ranks as a hotshot coordinator, taking on the Broncos (yes, the combative nature of the word is intentional) as his first head coaching job. Fox, on the other hand, is a wily vet of the NFL head coaching circle, having spent his last 9 years in Carolina. To fans worried about his 2-14 season with the Panthers, in short, don’t be. Fox was hung out to dry by the brass down in Charlotte, shipping out veterans and trusted playmakers, insisting Fox play younger, albeit less talented and unproven players. Combined with the injury bug that chewed up Pro Bowl running back DeAngelo Williams among other contributors, the 2010 Panthers would’ve been a losing team, even with the ghost of Vince Lombardi calling the shots.Fox is a tough-nosed football coach, with a game plan built around running the football and strong defense, a far cry from the attempted aerial assault that has gotten the Broncos little to no traction over the past 2 years. A quarterback like Tim Tebow, who Fox will have at least some token of his own future invested in, regardless of his preference, can succeed in Fox’s system, so long as he plays smart, turnover free football. Not to mention, it should be intriguing to see what kind of wrinkles Tebow could add to Fox’s run-heavy arsenal. Read the rest of this entry »
