It’s the time of year! It’s trade season and we’re setting up for a very interesting trade deadline. A ton of teams are still needing pieces and other teams need to blow things up and start over. I’ve gathered a few of our scribes to talk about what they expect to see at the trade deadline this Thursday.

It was another tough season for the Denver Broncos as they finished their third straight season with a losing record at 7-9. Still, for the first time in a long time, the team and fans feel hope as the team heads into the offseason. Starting 0-4 is really not the best way to start off a new coaching regime led by first-time head coach Vic Fangio. Forget that and remember the part where they finished the season 7-5 despite a plethora of injuries to key players and trading starting receiver Emmanuel Sanders. Growth of the young players was significant, but most importantly, Denver may finally have their quarterback of the future. It took three tries this year, but as the fan touted “Drewcember” rolled around, the Broncos may have potentially found their future quarterback in rookie Drew Lock.Continue reading

On Sunday, the Denver Broncos won their fourth game of the season, defeating the Los Angeles Chargers 23-20 on a last-second field goal by Brandon McManus. It was a glorious win for both the Broncos, who have lost three such games the exact way and also for rookie Drew Lock. It wasn’t pretty, but Lock brought everything we saw from him out of Mizzou onto Empower Field at Mile High for his first career start. Moxie, confidence, and some flash with his play.

The Denver Broncos have named second-round pick Drew Lock as the team’s starting quarterback this week against the Los Angeles Chargers, per ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Schefter. The Drew Lock era is finally upon us, and given how the season has gone, it’s not surprising. I know that Broncos fans are stoked for the rookie’s first career start, but let’s be reasonable with expectations with him.

Thanksgiving is finally upon us, and there’s a lot to be thankful for. We’re thankful for our families, lives, and any other number of things. I personally have a lot to be thankful for. One of those things being the NBA. It’s been a brutal few months as a Denver sports fan. Watching the Colorado Rockies take a massive step back from last season – failing to make the playoffs – and the Denver Broncos facing a 3-8 record. Having the NBA and the Denver Nuggets back has been a nice change of pace from all the losing that’s been happening in the last few months. It also got me thinking, which active NBA players I would want at my Thanksgiving dinner.

Being a fan of the Denver Broncos is challenging right now. Top to bottom, the whole team is a complete mess. The ownership is four people running a one-man position and running with the wrong mentality. The Bowlen family is in shambles and is consistently trying to sabotage one another. The coaching staff is showing their inexperience. The team, as a whole, lacks talent and direction. The worst part, no matter what the organization does, the fans aren’t going to like it and call for everyone’s head no matter what.

The Colorado Avalanche are set to open the season this Thursday, October 3rd. The Denver Nuggets open the regular season on October 23rd. While the Nuggets open the season on ESPN, the Avalanche do not. As things currently stand, The Avalanche game will not be viewed by the local public unless you are in the Pepsi Center. The beginning of September marked the end of an agreement between the Nuggets and Avalanche local broadcast network ‘Altitude TV’ and the so-called “Big 3” of DIRECTV, DISH Network, and Comcast.
