When the Seattle Seahawks visit the Broncos for a preseason kickoff Thursday night, they’ll see a Denver defense that was reshaped with them in mind — along with a team still smarting over all that trash talk during and after the Super Bowl.
Denver Broncos starting running back Montee Ball is sidelined with appendicitis and isn’t expected back until the AFC champs’ opener against Indianapolis on Sept. 7.
Montee Ball acknowledges he was “a little bit” intimidated by Peyton Manning last year, something he says contributed to his slow start.
Von Miller wants to forget about last season, not just the way it began with a drug suspension and ended with a torn ACL but also how he experimented with packing on too much muscle.
Sacred cows were scarce when Broncos general manager John Elway dug out from the wreckage of that Super Bowl blistering by the Seahawks.
At Dove Valley the Denver Broncos have already handed the starting running back job to Montee Ball, so now it’s a battle of backups.
Peyton Manning has thrown 100 touchdown passes in his two seasons in Denver. Although the five-time MVP has another group of tantalizing targets with the additions of Emmanuel Sanders and Cody Latimer, the Broncos want more balance in 2014.
If Kapri Bibbs is going to make the Denver Broncos final roster at the end of training camp this summer he’s likely going to have to beat out some stiff competition.
Kapri Bibbs was bypassed in the NFL draft despite leading the nation with 31 touchdown runs in his single season at Colorado State. Yet, he insists he’s glad he turned pro.
Denver was walloped 40-10 by Seattle in the preseason with Ronnie Hillman fumbling, Montee Ball stumbling and Peyton Manning grumbling.
