  • Klee: Taking attendance at Denver Broncos first day of school

    Updated: 14 hr ago

    ENGLEWOOD - It's 2 hours before the Broncos' first practice of training camp - a practice, not a game, not a game - and the line of cars already snakes around the corner. Some folks, possibly including Ben Garland, got here at 5 a.m. Guy in the Julius Thomas jersey? Bummed, kind of....

  • Friday Faceoff: Who is the Bronco nobody is talking about (but should be)?

    Updated: 19 hr ago

    Survey says: Watch out for Sanders By Paul Klee Peyton Manning? Nah. Every Coloradan and their chocolate Lab talks about the quarterback: Too old/motivated by records/still Peyton, depending on whether your pint of 90 Shilling is half full or half empty. Von Miller? The...

  • Klee blog: Denver Broncos' first move of new era: Limiting Peyton Manning

    Updated: Thu, Jul 30, 2015

    ENGLEWOOD — It will happen again, Friday morning around 9:53 or 9:54, just as it happened three years ago and two years ago. On a sunburned day at Dove Valley, thousands of Broncomaniacs seated and standing alongside the practice fields will erupt as though John Elway just...

  • Klee: 10 reasons why Broncos training camp is worth watching

    Updated: Thu, Jul 30, 2015

    ENGLEWOOD - If sports are entertainment, the best entertainment in Colorado is not, in fact, at Dove Valley for Broncos training camp. It's in Boulder for the Republican debate, and can anyone really argue that won't be wildly entertaining? - The debate falls on Oct. 28, a...

  • Klee blog: Legacy, schmegacy: Tom Brady just fine, unless….

    Updated: Wed, Jul 29, 2015

    The whole legacy argument is a bit silly. OK, more than a bit silly. It's really silly. The idea Peyton Manning throws for 290 yards and three touchdowns in single-digit temperatures — and his legacy tumbles because a Hail Mary sails over the Broncos defense?...

  • Klee: Colorado Rockies trading Troy Tulowitzki a sign of baseball things to come

    Updated: Tue, Jul 28, 2015

    DENVER - This was most definitely not the Jeff Bridich the Colorado Rockies introduced to their soured, cynical fandom 10 months ago as the new general manager. That guy, whoever he was, came across as timid, almost scared he would offend someone, as if uncertain what end of the puppet...

  • Klee blog: Trading Troy Tulowitzki is about Colorado Rockies' history

    Updated: Tue, Jul 28, 2015

    DENVER — At this point, whether or not the Rockies received enough for Troy Tulowitzki is a giant purple unknown as big as Dinger's head. When the return haul centers around 20-, 20- and 22-year-old pitching prospects, it feels a lot like a college recruiting class. Ask me in four...

  • Klee: Denver Broncos' bravado leaves sour taste after playoff losses

    Updated: Tue, Jul 28, 2015

    ENGLEWOOD — This isn't on Shane Ray. He's new around here, an NFL rookie whose braggadocio played to the crowd in college. Plus, it's unfair to pin him with the Broncos' latest playoff disaster, since Ray wasn't on the team when they rolled over and played dead against the Indianapolis...

  • Klee: Becky Hammon, NBA coach, rising up the old-fashioned way

    Updated: Sat, Jul 25, 2015

    DENVER — Their five championship rings suggest the San Antonio Spurs aren't in the business of handouts, that Becky Hammon's rise to full-time assistant coach, the first woman in league history to assume that role, was based on merit. That she cracked the men's ranks the...

  • Klee blog: Onus on Wade Phillips, Broncos coaches after Derek Wolfe suspension

    Updated: Fri, Jul 24, 2015

    The Broncos' offensive line? Not worried. Gary Kubiak, Rick Dennison and Clancy Barone will build a formidable offensive line. That's their thing. Now, the defensive line? That's looking. The four-game suspension of Derek Wolfe cuts another big body from a defensive line that already...
