  • Klee: Scuffling Broncos bring fight to the field

    Updated: Wed, Aug 13, 2014

    DENVER — Fight! The Broncos are rrrready to rumble. Scrap the pads. Lace up the gloves. On Day 14 of training camp - a fortnight, or a fightnight? - the Broncos got in the ring. Then they took it outside. Tuesday, they held boxing tryouts. A football practice broke out. One...

  • Blog: Never heard of Broncos' Juwan Thompson? That's the point

    Updated: Fri, Aug 8, 2014

    Other than what I’ve seen from Broncos running back Juwan Thompson in training camp, I didn’t know much about him. I knew he went to Duke. I knew he entered Broncos camp as an undrafted free agent. I knew that every time I went on a radio show this week, I told the host to keep an eye...

  • Klee: Despite what you heard, Broncos' identity still intact

    Updated: Fri, Aug 8, 2014

    DENVER — When I first heard the catchy nickname for the Seahawks' new fanbase, I thought it was awesome. The "12s," a nod of respect to the dozen Seahawks fans who existed before Pete Carroll arrived. Props, Seattle. Way to remember your roots. Wait, what? That's not the genesis of...

  • Klee: Just a preseason game? For Broncos, it should be about pride

    Updated: Thu, Aug 7, 2014

    DENVER - They were best friends, classmates, teammates who once shared a locker room in high school. They were roommates during the NFL offseason. Then came the Super Bowl, and it got personal. So, Omar Bolden, what did you think of your buddy, Bobby Wagner, saying the Broncos were...

  • Blog: Walt Weiss on pitching at Coors Field

    Updated: Wed, Aug 6, 2014

    Is it impossible to build a consistent winner at Coors Field? That’s what I wrote here. It has been a longstanding theory of mine: In a game dominated by pitching, the Rockies can’t win consistently at a ballpark that swallows pitchers whole. The altitude isn’t going anywhere. To...

  • KLEE: Is it impossible to build a consistent winner at Coors Field?

    Updated: Wed, Aug 6, 2014

    DENVER • As raindrops drizzled into Coors Field on Tuesday, Rockies manager Walt Weiss reminisced back to the good ol’ days, a time when a pitcher could take the mile-high altitude over his knee and give it a spanking. OK, so it was just one pitcher: Greg Maddux, who last week was...

  • Blog: With Montee Ball on shelf, whither Broncos running game?

    Updated: Mon, Aug 4, 2014

    Montee Ball is scheduled to undergo an appendectomy today. But before predicting what will happen to the Broncos’ running game with the projected starter on the sideline, flash back to this time last year. Ronnie Hillman entered training camp as the starting running back. Knowshon...

  • Klee: Why is Broncos safety Rahim Moore smiling? It's not complicated

    Updated: Sun, Aug 3, 2014

    DENVER - What is your worst nightmare? For an NFL safety, the last line of defense, it is this: a deep pass soars overhead, landing in the arms of a wide receiver. Touchdown, bad guys. A playoff game, and a season, is lost. What is your worst nightmare? For an athlete, who relies...

  • Broncos: Want a ticket? Better save up

    Published: Sat, Aug 2, 2014

    At the moment, I'm looking around at the 40,000-plus inside Sports Authority Field for the Broncos annual summer scrimmage. There are plenty of reasons why these diehards chose to spend a Saturday morning watching a game that doesn't count. The Broncos are very good again. The...

  • Klee: Fed up with Seahawks smack, Broncos fire back

    Updated: Tue, Jul 29, 2014

    ENGLEWOOD — For good reason, the Broncos have kept their mouths shut, even as the Seahawks crow on and on about their Super Bowl championship. But how do the Broncos really feel? As the season inches closer — including a rematch in the preseason opener and in Week 3 — the truth is...
