Broncos, Briefly: Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Posted Jul 12, 2017

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Denver Broncos.

NFL Nostalgia: Ranking History's Most Clutch Quarterbacks (Mike Tanier, Bleacher Report)
Elway led 35 fourth-quarter comebacks in his career. His 98-yard drive against the Browns in the 1986 AFC Championship Game is still known by its one-word nickname 30 years later. He dueled some of the greatest quarterbacks in history while going to battle with one of the weakest offensive supporting casts a perennial contender ever fielded.

9 reasons why the Broncos can make the playoffs and win a postseason game (Mike Klis, KUSA)
The biggest problems from that 9-7 team were the offensive line followed by the defensive line. Broncos’ general manager John Elway fortified both fronts by signing Ronald Leary, Menelik Watson and Domata Peko from free agency and selecting Garett Bolles and DeMarcus Walker within the first two rounds of the draft.

Mark Schlereth leaves ESPN to be NFL analyst for rival FS1 (Nicki Jhabvala, Denver Post)
Former Broncos offensive lineman and current analyst Mark Schlereth announced Tuesday that he is leaving ESPN to join FS1 as an NFL studio analyst. He will remain a radio host alongside Mike Evans on 104.3 The Fan.

AFC West Q&A: Who is on the hottest seat in the division? (ESPN)
Jeff Legwold: The hottest seats in this division have been created by ownership decisions. The Raiders and the Chargers will be moving to new stadiums, but the openings of both venues are years away.

AFC West training camp preview: Key issues, players to watch (Conor Orr, NFL.com)
Joseph comes in with a fresh set of eyes on a dominant secondary and Von Miller, one of the best pass rushers in football. This is a unique -- but daunting -- proposition for a first-time NFL head coach. If the defense takes a step forward, the Broncos are still very much in contention despite the West being one of the league's toughest divisions.
