  • Klee: Colorado Springs' Nate Engesser heating up for Denver Pioneers

    Updated: Fri, Dec 19, 2014

    DENVER Friday night, the University of Denver hosts Colorado State in a basketball game. It is potentially a big one, since CSU is 10-0 and DU runs an unusual system that is capable of swinging an upset if the Rams are not prepared for it. So Nate Engesser is excited about that....

  • KLEE: For Nuggets to get going, Kenneth Faried must get going

    Updated: Thu, Nov 20, 2014

    DENVER - Kenneth Faried talks a big game. He plays to the crowd, saying the right things, or at least the things the crowd wants to hear. Here, check out what he said Sept. 29, before this Nuggets season got underway: "I'm one of those players you can stick in anywhere and I'm going...

  • Klee: Enough treading water - it's time for Denver Nuggets' next plan

    Updated: Thu, Dec 18, 2014

    DENVER — Dwight Howard wrestles his impossibly long torso into a folding chair fit for an elf. Then he tours down memory lane, recalling his days as a free agent. Would it be Los Angeles? Dallas? The all-NBA center eventually settled on Houston. For much of his time as the most...

  • Klee: Guided by tough Peyton Manning, Broncos win AFC West again

    Updated: Mon, Dec 15, 2014

    SAN DIEGO — The quarterback already was old, and now he was sick. How sick? Sick enough a teammate took one look at Peyton Manning and felt bad for him, sick enough he was stuck with an I.V. for the first time in his 17-year NFL career. Sick enough the Broncos quarterback considered...

    Change is good 1 Say this about John Fox: He's not scared of change. No franchise in the NFL has undergone more dramatic change in its offensive structure than the Broncos. Fox, who is always under fire, is open to change. His Broncos have gone from Kyle Orton's passing offense to...

  • Klee: Can you keep a secret? The Broncos have one

    Updated: Sun, Dec 14, 2014

    SAN DIEGO — Adam Gase has a secret. Can you keep it? "We're not doing anything different, really," the Broncos offensive coordinator said, lowering his voice to a whisper. Maybe he thought Josh McDaniels and the Patriots were filming our conversation. I don't know. But I do know -...

  • Klee: Avs, Nuggets woes could make Pepsi Center quiet in playoffs

    Updated: Wed, Dec 10, 2014

    DENVER — When will the Roy-cano erupt? Mount Patrick hasn't blown his top - not publicly, anyway. Avalanche coach Patrick Roy, a career winner, is losing like he never has before. The Avs haven't won in December (0-3-1), haven't won enough at home (four straight losses), haven't won...

  • Klee: With another tough-guy win, Broncos' new identity changes future

    Updated: Mon, Dec 8, 2014

    DENVER — This is not going as planned. This is different and new and changing the way we must view the future of the Broncos. Sunday, Sports Authority Field still boomed and shook when the Broncos scored, but the decibel level rose when an undrafted running back crashed into the end...

  • KLEE: When Karl Mecklenburg speaks, Broncos Country listens

    Updated: Sun, Dec 7, 2014

    DENVER — On Florida’s Space Coast, Karl Mecklenburg saw Orion belt into the stratosphere. “I’m here to see the rocket launch,” the Broncos iconic linebacker said last week from near Cape Canaveral. Mecklenburg lives at a mile high, in Littleton, and as a public-speaker-for-hire, the...
