  • Blog: John Elway — the Don, not the Duke — will go big for Broncos

    Updated: Tue, Jan 13, 2015

    When media suggested Jared Allen and Dominique Rogers-Cromartie, John Elway pushed a stack of chips to the table's center and snagged DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib. Tim Tebow? Nah. What's Peyton Manning up to? The Duke is a Don. When he replaces John Fox with the next coach of the...

  • Klee: After Broncos season closes with a thud, a parade of changes is coming

    Updated: Mon, Jan 12, 2015

    DENVER — The kid was crying, and he isn't the only one. He wore a No. 18 Broncos jersey appropriately sized for a 3-year-old. The tears fit any age. One day Marshall Manning will see the bigger picture, the vast, brilliant masterpiece his father drew in 17 seasons as an NFL...

  • Klee with three things to look for in Broncos vs. Colts

    Updated: Sun, Jan 11, 2015

    Bye, bye to the bye week 1 I don't like the bye week. I don't think it's an advantage. Sounds crazy, right? Well, not if you document Peyton Manning's experience with a bye week. His teams are 2-3 in the divisional round following a bye. It's not just Manning's teams, either, that...

  • Klee: As Broncos begin another Super Bowl push, their biggest challenger is..

    Updated: Sun, Jan 11, 2015

    DENVER — This is teeing off on No. 18 as the sun vanishes below the clubhouse. This is a final bench-press rep when your triceps are trembling. This is one more cast when the Roaring Fork is a pitch-black, rolling escalator of darkness. This is a race against time. That's why...

    Updated: Fri, Jan 9, 2015

    FORT COLLINS — Puff, puff. Larry Eustachy inhales from the vapor pen he proudly claims is his biggest purchase of the past six months. He exhales. An odorless cloud blows forward, with it a stream of consciousness. In a team meeting room inside Moby Arena, the Colorado State men's...

  • 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...
