2017 Schedule is Up

65 comments:

  1. Ok guys,

    Sorry for the delay. Just been extremely busy with kids activities and corresponding items. My boss has been in the hospital and out recovering pretty much since the middle of January. So even though I'm not in public accounting anymore, I was pretty much still working tax season hours.

    The 2017 schedules are up, and I have noted where games are prime time games. They either say Mon, Thurs or Night. Thought that might give a reminder that its a night game coming up.

    Looking forward to seeing what this team can do. I think our defense is going to be better than last year. Especially our D line.

    Hopefully our Oline will be much improved, which will only help our offense.

    1. I think so too. On the D being better that is. The STs should be better too. Offense remains to be seen. How can they be much worse though? 😀

  4. According to NFL.com, we have the number 31 (of 32) ranked coach in the NFL. Ouch.

  5. Can't believe its almost training camp time. I love it. I hate when football season is done. It takes too damn long to come back too.

    I am very eager to see this team in action, especially the offense. I want to see how well the offensive line is coming together. I also get the impression our offense will be much more aggressive than in previous years.

  11. Okay guys, here's my Pre-Camp predictions for the upcoming season. Subject to change (of course) after pre-season when we know the roster, starters and what the team looks like in action. Maybe we can do another "Post-Camp" revised predictions during the week before the regular season? Anyone wanting to join in, just copy and paste my list and fill in your best guesses.

    -------------------

    Preseason Record: 3-1

    Aug 10 - @ Chicago = W 17-3
    Aug 19 - @ San Francisco = W 24-7

    1. I'm not as confident as you, 1st. New rookie coach and new offense, we've improved in some areas, but some of our division rivals have also improved a great deal. I think it will take a while for our new offense to click, and I think we will be out coached a few times. I'm not good enough to predict scores!

      BUT! I sure hope I'm wrong and you all can laugh at me at the end of the season!


      Preseason Record: 2-2
      Aug 10 - @ Chicago = W

    2. You may be right, who knows. I think we'll win against Indy and split with Oak, otherwise the rest are whoever gets the breaks. Ya, I'm a Bronco homer but I think we could easily go 12-4 LOL!

    3. Well San Diego doesn't have a team anymore. Unless we are going to play football against the San Diego Footy McFooty Face.

      Delete
    4. Funny you bring up McFooty... just yesterday I was watching some Bronco vids on YouTube when the McDump presser after announcing the Cutler trade came up. Man, watching that arrogant prick talk brought back some bad memories. Made me appreciate how far Elway has turned the franchise around. John's up for a contract renew and speculation is he wants a stake in partial ownership of the Broncos. I hope he gets it, someone needs to slap Joe Ellis around for hiring McDisaster.

      Delete
    5. Haha. Sad days. So glad it turned back around so quickly.

      Did you see Tebow's game winning homer the other day?

      Delete
    6. Elway set to be highest paid GM or whatever his title is according to rotoworld.

  12. I'll play. I personally feel our D and STs are going to be just short of best ever range this year, so my predictions are a bit biased.

    Preseason Record: 3-1
    Aug 10 - @ Chicago = W 
    Aug 19 - @ San Francisco = W 
    Aug 26 - Green Bay = W

    Sept 11 - Los Angeles (MON) = W 28-10
    Sept 17 - Dallas = W 27-17
    Sept 24 - @ Buffalo = W 23-13
    Oct 1 - Oakland = W 24-17

    Oct 15 - New York Giants (Night) = W 30-10
    Oct 22 - @ Los Angeles = W 17-9

    Dec 24 - @ Washington W 20-17
    Dec 31 - Kansas City = L 24-16

    I also predict Siemian starts all year except week 17 when we rest him because we have the division locked up.

  13. Love yer prediction and I can see it totally happening (fingers crossed) - including Trevor winning the start.

    ReplyDelete
  14. So, this guy has got to be on his last leg. I would dare say he is on the roster bubble.

    Cody Latimer - WR - Broncos-
    was seen being pepper-sprayed after slapping a bouncer at a strip club in Dayton, Ohio in a video obtained by TMZ.

    The incident occurred in February and Latimer has already acknowledged that it was indeed him in the video. Charges were not filed and the police are not investigating the incident. Latimer has had a slew of off-field incidents including an arrest for failing to appear in court following a traffic violation. He also called the cops on his girlfriend for assaulting him last year and later paid her bail. The 24-year-old has been a major bust, hauling in just 16 catches since arriving as a second-round pick in 2014.

    I did however also read that he has since been baptism into a Colorado church, so maybe he has finally made a change in his life for the better. IDK if that will change his game for the better though.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I was surprised he made it through the roster cuts last year. Hope he really has turned his life around because he is real close to start living a no-football life.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Looks like Elway is on the verge of signing a big deal to keep him in Denver. They would be crazy not to renew his deal, with two SB appearances with one victory, five division titles, five playoff appearances and no losing seasons in six years.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Atwater is joining the team as fan ambassador. Not really sure what that means, but he's back.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Fixed the schedule. Must have missed deleting the Oct 30 game against SD.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I was surprised too that Lattimer made the roster last year. I would expect that with the guys we drafted and picked up, he has seen his last action in a Broncos uniform. It is unfortunate that he hasn't made any improvement in several seasons. Clearly he doesn't have the drive or the ability to improve.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I can see us losing one or both of the Oakland games before losing to Philly. I know it is in Philly, but they really aren't very good.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I had us losing, not because Philly is good, but because we come off night game with KC, travel to east coast and looking forward to NE.

      Delete
  21. I forsee Elway having major ownership control of this team in the not so distant future. The Bowlen family isn't capable of running it without Pat, and if you are going to sell it to someone, who better than John? I honestly beieve that is one reason why he sold his dealerships a number of years ago. Maybe I am wrong. I know he got a premium from Wayne H, but I think he may have been positioning himself for that. He had a chance to liquidate that, which may not have been able to do down the road.

    ReplyDelete
  22. If TS is healthy and can play like he did in the first four weeks last year, I see him winning the job, assuming Lynch doesn't completely blow him away.

    Hopefully our Oline is vastly improved and whoever is back there isn't constantly running for his life.

    Cut Cody, out WR room is overpacked.

    TS wins the starting job and looks like a different QB with McCoy and a new O-line.

      Could be how it goes. Just guesses.

  24. Looks like Elliott is expected to get a one or two game suspension for domestic violence. I wouldn't mind the latter, since we play them week 2.

    Planning for a suspension, Dallas brought in Ronnie Hillman for a visit.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Holy shit its a Cody sighting!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I agree, I think our offense will be better this year. But I worry about McCoy being too conservative like he was when he was here before.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have to wonder how much of McCoy's conservative calling was Fox whispering (or yelling) in his ear. It will be interesting to see what impact having been a head coach now will have on his play calling.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Football news and stuff!!! Yay!!!! Elway got PAID.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Replies
    1. He is reportedly the highest paid GM, which prior to Seattle's GM, the highest paid was Ozzie Newsome with Baltimore at $3.75 million annually. Not sure what seattle's GM got, but I expect Elway's deal to be upwards of $5 million a year. Seems low for the top guy, especially considering top coaches get more than that.

      Delete
  30. Didn't McCoy coordinate the record setting offense?

    I know he also did the Tebow O but he has shown some range as far as aggressiveness.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No that was Adam Gase.

      All he did was take plays from Florida's playbook. It worked at first and then he went back to being very predictable and trying to make Tebow a pocket passer and our offense stalled again. I really don't give him much credit for the Tebow season.

  31. Broncos will honor TD November 19th against the Bungles.

  32. Former Bronco David Bruton is retiring from the NFL due to a series of concussions. Sad to see him have to retire and was sad to see him leave. He was one of only a few McD draft picks that was worth a shit and was a ST's beast.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Broncos waived undrafted free agent Antonio (Josh) Banderas today,

  34. I guess Elway wasn't impressed with the felony theft arrest?? Cowboys cut one of their rookie free agents yesterday after he was arrested for shoplifting. Dumb asses!!!

    1. Although that felony arrest for Banderas was a couple of years ago. Wonder what else happened?? Nothing on the news on him.

    1. Seems like a perfect opportunity and fit for him.

    2. New that would happen and I think everyone knew it would be in Denver. I just figured he would take a year or two off first and then be back.

      I wonder if he will help mentor Joseph a little bit this season as he takes the reins of the team.

      Delete
  36. Local news here in Dallas are all over the Cowboys for cutting that guy yesterday who was accused of shoplifting. Turns out it was a case of mis-identity and the cops weren't even looking for him! Cowboys official response was that it was time for him to move on and he'll have a better chance starting over with a different team.

    Reminds me of the McDaniel times in Denver.

    1. He was claimed by the Jets. Imagine going from Dallas to the Jets. Poor guy.

      Although he may see some time on the field in NY since they have nobody.

    2. Dallas drafted a new KR.

      Delete
  37. Broncos sent a late round conditional pick in the 2019 draft to the Eagles for OL Allen Barbre.

    Eagles were going to release him. Guess we thought he would provide some depth and challenge Garcia. Maybe that means one of the existing guys may be on the chopping block.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I like it, seems he had a pretty good year last year for the Eagles but is old.

      At least he is cheap, can push Garica.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, not a bad move. Adds some much needed depth and didn't give up much. If he doesn't start, it is a lot to pay though. Think he was due about $2 million. I'm sure if we cut him before the season the pick reverts back to us, like with Sanchez.

      If he pans out and beats out Garcia, then its a great move.

      Delete
    3. Word was Leary moved to RG because Garcia couldn't. I think we want Leary at LG. It would help out whoever wins the LT job. Barbre may be a better RG option.

      Delete
  38. Elway said Heuerman needs to step up this year and show something. If he doesn't he will probably be cut. He has 9 catches in two seasons. Granted he missed his entire first season, and was hurt to start last year, he needs to do something now. With an offense that features the TE, this is his golden opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Charles has been cleared and is fully healthy. The team is still expected to bring him along slowly to make sure he is healthy.
