  • Ramsey: Montee Ball and Broncos fizzle on the ground

    SEATTLE - The Denver Broncos will struggle to return to the Super Bowl with an offense hampered by three running backs who all should be backups. No worthy featured back resides on the roster. Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson would serve as decent relievers to a legit starter. Defenses tenderized by Peyton Manning should be...

  • Ramsey: Surviving my family's Seahawks-Broncos feud

    SEATTLE - A confession: I was born in a hospital a mile-and-a-half from what is now CenturyLink Field, where the Broncos will be threatened with mass deafness. In grade school music class, we wandered through the state song. "Washington my home .. where ever I may roam," my classmates sang while I looked out the window and wondered, "Will...

  • Ramsey: Sky Sox rescued from Rockies clueless tyranny

    A few minutes before the Sky Sox took the field for their first home game of the 2014 season, I was sitting with manager Glenallen Hill. We were talking about the disastrous 2013 season, which concluded with the Sky Sox losing 31 of their final 47 games. Did the losing season bother Hill? "Not at all," Hill said, pausing between bites of...

  • 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...
