  • Klee: Peyton Manning vs. Colts is the story, but No. 18 won't determine if Broncos win

    Updated: Wed, Jan 7, 2015

    ENGLEWOOD — The Broncos locker room is different now. There is less small talk, fewer games of Connect Four. Media interviews are more direct, concise and Aqib Talib isn't humming love ballads over the soft jams playing through a teammate's iPhone. The reason is simple. The Broncos...

  • Klee: With NFL playoffs underway, Broncos kicking around a Super Bowl idea

    Updated: Sun, Jan 4, 2015

    DENVER - The fate of the Broncos' Super Bowl dreams probably will come down to a man who has a dessert named after him. He even designed the dessert. The sweet treat is sold at a restaurant in Wilmington, N.C., and made with acai berries, peanut butter and granola. He swears his...

  • Klee: On New Year's Day, Colorado Springs woman Christel Donley celebrates by defying calendar

    Updated: Thu, Jan 1, 2015

    My favorite track star in Colorado thinks 38-year-old Peyton Manning is "a toddler." She's had four shoulder surgeries. After the last one, the surgeon asked: Do you still want to compete after this? She looked at the doctor as if he had 13 eyeballs. Absolutely! she said. The...

  • Klee: 50 things to help rather than obsess after a Broncos' defeat

    Updated: Mon, Dec 29, 2014

    Hey, the Broncos are important business. We get it. That's why The Gazette travels to all Broncos road games and sends multiple writers and photographers on Sundays at Sports Authority Field. We also know Broncos Country went into a funk after the loss at Cincinnati. So instead of...

  • Klee: With playoffs up next, defense must carry Broncos to Super Bowl

    Updated: Mon, Dec 29, 2014

    DENVER — You can bend your mind and twist your football-loving soul trying to justify how and why the Broncos will win Super Bowl XLIX in four weeks. There are numbers to support your conclusion, because there are numbers to support just about anything. All I know for certain is why...

  • Klee with three things to look for with the Broncos hosting the Raiders on Sunday

    Updated: Sun, Dec 28, 2014

    Playoff picture 1 The Broncos won a Super Bowl as a Wild Card, the No. 4 seed after the 1997 season. They won a Super Bowl as a division champion, the No. 1 seed after the 1998 season. The best they can do this season is win the Super Bowl as the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs....

  • Klee: On imperfect Monday night, Broncos again show imperfections

    Updated: Tue, Dec 23, 2014

    CINCINNATI — Maybe I'm missing something. Did you expect the Broncos to go 19-0 and become the first team to host a Super Bowl parade on the moon? Because the Broncos losing 37-28 to the Bengals is not a bad loss. Not even close. Losing on the road, in the final four minutes, on the...

  • Klee with 3 things to watch Monday night in Broncos-Bengals game

    Updated: Mon, Dec 22, 2014

    Tables turning? 1 On the long, winding road that is the NFL season, something strange has happened: The Broncos are soaring under the radar. That's what I gather, anyway. Denver has gone from Super Bowl favorite to trailing the Patriots, Packers and Seahawks as the team most likely...

  • Klee: For banged-up Broncos, bit players must be big-time players

    Updated: Mon, Dec 22, 2014

    CINCINNATI - He is only 22, an NFL rookie playing for the Broncos. Maybe helps explain why Todd Davis so eagerly expressed his childhood love for the Raiders, why the young linebacker gets hyped up with videos of Broncos nemesis Ray Lewis before every game? "I'm a big Ray Lewis fan,...

    DENVER — Mike sent the email back in September. It was addressed to Rahim Moore. Dear Mr. Moore: Please accept my sincere thanks for your comments concerning God. I am currently suffering from Parkinson's disease. And it continued from there. Since that first email, Michael...
