Jack Del Rio
The Denver Broncos are built to win the Super Bowl, right? Not if they come into seemingly every game undisciplined and underprepared.
This was not the Denver Broncos team all those fans dressed in orange and blue came to see. Denver was destroyed by the Rams in St. Louis, both on the scoreboard and in terms of physicality.
Brandon Marshall and Steven Johnson were roommates at the East-West Shrine Game in 2011 before going their separate ways as unheralded linebackers trying to make it in the NFL.
The Broncos were held under 65 snaps just twice last season – both times by San Diego.
Slogging through the rubble of that Super Bowl landslide, John Elway blew up his defense.
With Chris Harris Jr. still working his way back from ACL surgery and Kayvon Webster sidelined by a sprained ankle, Bradley Roby capitalized on his increased snaps in the preseason.
Denver defensive end Malik Jackson returned to practice Friday after attending his father’s memorial service in New Jersey.
The Broncos defense is playing with more of an edge during training camp so far, and it’s a good bet Jack Del Rio’s squad will put in a better performance than last season.
The Three Amigos in Denver Broncos lore were all wide receivers: Vance Johnson, Mark Jackson and Ricky Nattiel. The modern version consists of safety Quinton Carter, defensive end Quanterus Smith and linebacker Lerentee McCray.
Showing his surgically repaired ACL was no longer an issue, the Broncos’ pass-rusher flashed through the line and sent the backup quarterback’s pass fluttering to the ground.
