Really? They provide original material on an almost daily basis. See the analysis of last night's game, linked below, for example.

Not a huge fan of the site, but I think they try to analyze the Broncos and offer insight (just not accumulating links) on their own accord better than most. There are basically three big sites out there: MHR, BT and IAOFM. I haven't contributed to BT in a while (for a variety of reasons), but they are all doing well for themselves. I think the Broncos online community has a lot to offer for their fans.

Exactly. Whether you love or hate any of those sites (or this one) for a small fan base we have a surprisingly high amount of decent quality fan-driven content for people to consume. I've been out there schlepping as a fan that provides content. It isn't easy and to do it daily takes more than people think. If you don't like it, fine, but at least you have options. Not a lot of other teams have that option.

Broncos fire Josh McDaniels

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on December 6, 2010, 6:22 PM EST


Josh McDaniels won’t even finish his second season as Broncos head coach.
In a short announcement sent over Twitter, the team announced that “Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen has relieved Josh McDaniels of his head coaching duties.”

McDaniels’ team was 3-9 on the season and 5-17 since they jumped out to a fast start to open the 2009 campaign. The timing of the move is a surprise because McDaniels met with the media Monday and players were in house as normal.

Bowlen’s ultimate decision won’t shock anyone, though. McDaniels was slowly getting buried in an avalanche of distractions, bad personnel decisions, and tough losses.

Once viewed as one of the most stable, well-run organizations in football, the Broncos now look like a mess. We’re only a week removed from Bowlen saying that McDaniels was safe, then backtracking hours later. There are serious questions about whether the right infrastructure is in place with the team and who is making the decisions.

The Broncos exonerated McDaniels after the “Spygate II” affair erupted, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter indicates the scandal played a role in McDaniels’ departure.

The Alphonso Smith pick that McDaniels traded away ended up being #14 overall in the 2010 draft.

With that pick, Seattle selected S Earl Thomas.

It could be worse, he could have coached the team to the worst finish in team history......

I wonder if Beelzicheat is grooming him to take over as HC of the Pats when he eventually has to return to Hades?

Hope that helps.


I'm not sure you can claim that you turned "most people" on to the site. But moving past that...

The daily link dump is not great writing, but they do find everything there is to find from a variety of sources, and do a pretty good job of breaking down what's in each link. If that was all they did, you might be on to something, but it's not.

Ted does a marvelous job at breaking down specifics in the passing game and defense, and Doc Bear has had some REALLY excellent work on a variety of subjects, none of which were just "The Lard" link dump.

Having Peyton in 2009/10 and Tebow/Orton in 2013 would make a big difference in those numbers.

It's truly remarkable how quickly Elway righted the ship... at the time most people would have thought the franchise would still be licking its wounds from this debacle for years.

He won the division and a playoff game with Tim Tebow at QB. We're probably looking at three division titles. That would tie the number Shanahan won in 13 years as our head coach. The most won by any Bronco head coach is Dan Reeves with 5, which is more than half that in just three years. It will also be our first three-peat in history. Hope I didn't just put the whammy on us!

no, because bacvk thern we had nothing and very low expectations. JMCD destroyed something that was glorious.
we went from the penthouse to the outhouse when that POS outsider/ BB secret agent arived and in just 2 seasons turned oue beloved team in to a laughing stock.
only the leadership and wisardry of JFE could lift us from the crATER LEFT BY THE jmcd METEOR.
I will always despise that punk! happy anniversary !

McDaniels signed Orton and drafted Tebow in the 1st ****ing round.

You're just reinforcing my whole point!

I wasn't disagreeing, just merely saying it in a different way

BTW, he traded for Orton (part of the Cutler deal) not signed (nit picking I know).
