The Nuggets Should Trade Nene

The Nuggets Should Trade Nene

Nuggets owner Josh Kroenke and general manager Masai Ujiri have built an impressive roster in relatively short time. They squeezed Timofey Mozgov out of the Knicks in the Carmelo Anthony deal. And they shrewdly dealt a second-round pick to the Dallas Mavericks for Rudy Fernandez and Corey Brewer. Smart NBA executives carve out opportunities, patiently wait for the right time to pull the trigger and then pounce on the prize. The time has come for Kroenke and Ujiri to make their boldest ...

Time to Trade Tebow

Time to Trade Tebow

John Elway was hired to put his stamp on the Broncos. He was brought in as team’s executive vice president of football operations to make the tough decisions that are necessary to build a winner. No. 7 has an office at Dove Valley because he’s seen as someone bold enough to do what is right, not just what is popular. If those things are true, then Elway needs to do one thing before the NFL Draft: Trade Tim Tebow. The Hall of Fame quarterback doesn’t see No. 15 as the Broncos ... Full Story

Defending the Broncos

Defending the Broncos

But like most things, the game of football became more complex and so did the top league in which it was played. It started to become obvious that one man could not do it all and that only a collective group effort was going to be able to create a contender in the competitive and hostile environment of the NFL. Regardless of the titles that ... Full Story

The Trap of the NFL Combine

The Trap of the NFL Combine

  The NFL Combine, or better known to the media as the “Underwear Olympics,” has become must-see television. One of my radio partners, Peter Burns, loves this stuff. He spent hours in front of his TV watching guys run the 40, bench press and weave through the cone drill. Peter is single with no kids, clearly has more time than me and was hoping to gain some valuable information. But given the choice, I’d rather take my kids to see Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked ... Full Story

No one is quite sure what comprises the winning formula. All that is known is that it’s a delicate balance, one that requires a precise mix of personalities that will mesh into a functional unit. When it’s done right, it’s a beautiful thing, as players come together ... Full Story
