  • Klee: Under the radar, Chris Harris Jr. and Broncos defense becoming elite

    DENVER - This, under the Sony flat screen, is the confidence zone of the Broncos locker room. This is where the defensive backs hang out. It reeks of swag. Aqib Talib texts here. T.J. Ward chills here. Chris Harris Jr. is building a home here, in the confidence zone, complete with bravado tables, brash chairs and I-told-you-so drapes. "Oh,...

  • Klee: After record night, Peyton Manning, 38, is just warming up

    DENVER — The first one went to No. 88. The 509th went to No. 88, too. Nos. 87, 44, 81, 83, 17, 32, 85, 29, 84, 11, 10, 86, 15, 28, 33, 86, 12, 27, 23, 35, 36, 61, 45, 47, 96 and 21 caught touchdown passes in between. The names on the jerseys sometimes changed, such as Marvin Harrison (the first recipient) to Demaryius Thomas (who caught the...

  • Video: Reviewing the greatness of Peyton Manning

    Gazette columnist Paul Klee takes a look at the legacy of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning - from the first touchdown pass to Marvin Harrison to this season - as Manning closes in on the all-time TD record. Yes, Broncos fans have it so good.

  • Klee: Fishing for a Super Bowl win, John Fox still in Broncos' bull's-eye

    DENVER — This year's bye week was better than last year's bye week. For one, John Fox didn't almost die. The Broncos coach wasn't knocked to the putting green on the 14th hole of a North Carolina golf course, praying to heaven his next breath wouldn't be his last. Instead, Fox spent the bye week in fishing waders. He tossed hopper patterns...

  • 3 with Paul Klee: What to watch in Broncos-49ers game

    Gazette columnist Paul Klee's quick preview of Sunday night's 49ers-Broncos game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, along with three more points of interest on video - including who will likely catch that record-breaking Peyton Manning touchdown pass: Almost a Bronco 1 - How close was Colin Kaepernick to becoming the quarterback of the...

  • Klee: As CSU sniffs Top 25, can Rams keep their coach?

    FORT COLLINS — If ever there were a night to ask Jim McElwain if he will stay at Colorado State for the long haul, this was it: The setting sun painting a pink lullaby over the Front Range, a 5-1 record heading into a homecoming game, the air thin enough to slide between you and your worries. "Great place to live" McElwain said. Then the...

  • Blog: Broncos emerge as new America's Team, poll says

    Maybe Joseph Randle is just smarter than the rest of us. Maybe he is prescient. How else to explain why the Dallas running back stole cologne and underwear? Randle is simply preparing for when the Cowboys poop the bed. Regardless of his motivation to stay fresh and clean, Randle and the Cowboys beat the Seahawks but lost their title: The...

  • Klee: Broncos win after long, strange return to MetLife Stadium

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — In a strangely giddy locker room, with a strange question, I went to the source. Juwan Thompson, if it's not too personal, how much do you weigh? "About 220," Thompson said Sunday afternoon. "I've slimmed down a little bit." That's a hefty running back. It's certainly heftier than Ronnie Hillman. He's around 195,...

  • Klee with Three: Eric Decker, he's their man

    Eric Decker, he's their man 1 The Broncos have been fine without Eric Decker. Aside from a hamstring injury that sidelined the wide receiver for last week's game against the Chargers, Decker has been fine without the Broncos. Decker doesn't have Peyton Manning anymore, so his sterling numbers were bound to dip. But in games in which he's been...

  • Klee: NFL Psychology 101 as Broncos return to MetLife Stadium

    NEW YORK - The quarterback's arm strength is key, of course. The girth and footwork of the left tackle must work in tandem. If the tailback envisions the running lane before it opens, that's a bonus. Demaryius Thomas must catch the ball first. On the chase for a championship, details matter, the margin for error slimmer than a Flacco...
