Denver Broncos: Already Talking Week One

With about two weeks left until Broncos training camp begins, being an NFL fan is rough right now. The league is fairly quiet and with the LeBron-athon on ESPN lately, pigskin has been put on the back burner.

Not to worry, however. There are still some people with football on the brain. Not just training camp or preseason football, but week 1 of the regular season.

Black and Teal is the Jaguars site that’s part of They have put together an intensive analysis of the Broncos-Jaguars week 1 matchup. They conclude that the Broncos run defense will be a key factor in determining who wins. Like many NFL analysts, they question the Broncos new front three.

Denver believes the front three let them down last year, so they went shopping in free agency.  The entire Defensive line of the Broncos will feature new faces. For example; well respected veteran NT Jamal Williams who came via free agency from the Chargers. He is considered a good player but sat out in the last year with a triceps injury. Then there is Justin Bannan who was signed also in free agency. The former Bill and Raven has lot of experience but because of Sam Adams; and Haloti Ngata he didn’t see much action so he is relatively fresh than his age might suggest. And there is Jarvis Green coming from the Patriots. These 3 guys might all start this year against the Jaguars. They never played together before. That presents a challenge for Denver.” (Black and Teal)

They also analyze specific challenges that their offense will face against this new Broncos defense. Head over there now to give it a read. It’s a great article and it will get your blood flowing for some regular season action. I know it did mine.

    Game 1 cant’ get here fast enough! Expecting big things from a bigger line this year, believe the defense will be solid. Think the offense will be ok as well even without Marshall, year two for Kyle in the system should make things run much smoother. Hoping Moreno & the O-Line can get those short yards that they didn’t get last year

    Nice post.

    The article was a good read. I’m less worried about Bannan, Williams and Green playing togeter for the first time than i am they are 31, 31 & 34. We rebuilt the number two offense in the league in 2008 and were signing free agents on defense like were trying to win it all this year. Which is it. Are we rebuilding or trying to win it all. We have one of the oldest defenses in the league and we drafted nobody for the front seven. If you read the article from football outsiders / ESPN Kansas city is ranked 3rd best in starting high caliber players less than 25. We ranked 25th out of 32 teams. I don’t care if we beat KC this year because they suck lately. But if were not careful we won’t beat them for the next 5 years. P.S. how many starting high caliber players do we have on defense that are younger than 25?
