The Best Team in Denver

The Best Team in Denver

The Colorado Rapids kick off their regular season tomorrow afternoon against the… SOCCER REFERENCE ALERT!  Wait, what? Is this another soccer article? On the same weekend Peyton Manning makes his decision to disappoint Broncos fans and head to South Beach, the Big Apple or Arizona? Yes, yes it is. The Rapids kick off their 2012 season tomorrow against the Columbus Crew, and if you’re saying to yourself, “I’m not going to watch soccer,” I’ve got one thing to say to ... Full Story

No Need for Manning

No Need for Manning

How can something that looks so right be so wrong? Well, the Broncos would be making a tragic mistake if they were able to somehow win the Peyton Manning sweepstakes. “Oh, D-Mac, you are just a blind Tebow lover! You are an idiot! You suck! I hate you!” See, I can read your mind. But now that you got that out of your system, can I talk some sense into you? Peyton Manning is not Peyton Manning anymore. The most obvious evidence of that is that the Colts just cut him. Nothing is ... Full Story

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

Until last year, the “Broncos Way” was whatever the current head coach wanted it to be. And until the 2000s, that way was a winning way. 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

Avs Improve their Recipe

Avs Improve their Recipe

    Team chemistry is an enigma. Perhaps the biggest mystery in sports, it’s an elusive component to winning that every owner, general manager and head coach has been trying to decode for years. 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
