  • Ramsey: Palmer Ridge, L-P rivalry brings Monument together

    A football tradition returns Friday night, one that never should have departed. Lewis-Palmer will tangle with Palmer Ridge under the lights, ending a messy, unnecessary two-season hiatus. Lewis-Palmer lineman Sam Warner is thrilled by the chance to compete against several of his junior high teammates. Just about everybody on Lewis-Palmer’s...

  • Ramsey: Broncos face an enormous burden: Their 2013 season

    The Denver Broncos have problem, and it's not going away. The problem is how dominating they were in 2013. Yes, I realize the Broncos ended the season by getting ripped to shreds by the Seahawks, but the march to the Super Bowl was dazzling. All the Broncos have to do in 2014 is be better than 2013. That's all. They only have to be even...

  • Ramsey: With defense still full of holes, nothing this season will come easy for Broncos

    DENVER - For almost the entirety of a glorious first half, the Broncos looked mighty, certain to return to the Super Bowl. In the second half, the Broncos reminded the Front Range of their last trip to the Super Bowl. You remember that catastrophe. Virtually everyone in America remembers that catastrophe. The Broncos' 31-24 victory over the...

  • Ramsey: John Elway took chance on Wes Welker, and lost

    COPIED INTO PAGE 2 OBJECT On one of the worst days of Mike Shanahan's coaching life, and there were many sad days after his second Super Bowl victory, he revealed the key to constructing a winning roster in the National Football League. "You have to take risks," Shanahan told me. "You have no choice." By risks, Shanahan meant players who...

  • Ramsey: Air Force requires victory on this march to Wyoming

    Air Force's journey to Wyoming will define the 2014 season. Yes, those are big words. This is a big trip. Air Force players made a collective decision to embrace the agony of last season. The Falcons don't require outside reminders of how astoundingly awful they were in 2013. They constantly remind each other of this futility. The proper...

  • Ramsey: CSU-Pueblo football needs weak RMAC to improve

    PUEBLO - Ask a CSU-Pueblo football player what his team's goal is this season, and expect a quick, simple answer. "A national championship," said wide receiver Paul Browning, who played at Widefield. "That's where we want to go. Nothing less than that." Football coaches usually embrace caution, especially when it comes to speaking about their...

  • BYU's Max Hall, despised Air Force opponent, hits the skids in Arizona

    Former BYU quarterback Max Hall repeatedly shredded Air Force's defense, and he did this shredding with distinctive glee. He talked trash. He danced on the field. He pointed fingers at defenders. (Not the middle ones, by the way.) Air Force players despised him, largely because of his passing mastery but partially because of his non-stop...

  • Ramsey: How much will Broncos miss Wes Welker?

    Easy answer to the Welker question: Not much. Welker's four-game suspension ranks as one of the least costly in Broncos - or NFL - history. He was hurt, his head still questionable after a concussion. And the Broncos don't much need him anyway. Picture this: The Broncos can place Jacob Tamme at tight end and move current tight end...

  • Ramsey: Emmanuel Sanders travels from Texas poverty to Colorado riches

    Emmanuel Sanders, in slight trouble while sitting in a stiff office chair, did not yet know he was special. Huey Chancellor knew. The football coach at Bellville High School saw a blindingly bright future for this skinny freshman. Sanders had been sent to Chancellor's office to discuss a minor infraction. Chancellor can't remember exactly...
