  • KLEE: CSU gets W, but state is the winner

    DENVER — With just a subtle twist in their football fortunes, Mike MacIntyre would be the head coach at Colorado State. Yes, CSU. Not Colorado. Strange, right? When it started to become as clear as the St. Vrain that Steve Fairchild was not the right man for the job in Fort Collins, CSU's athletics leadership scribbled a list of candidates...

  • Klee: Will CSU's Kapri Bibbs represent Mountain West on Broncos roster?

    DENVER - This should be where Kapri Bibbs is most comfortable. This should be where he sees things others don't see, gaps of freedom in a swarm of 21 bodies, the easiest path to a touchdown. This is the goal line. Instead, this is where his mind goes blank. The adrenaline leads to sudden memory loss, he says. This is where we came to remember...

  • Broncos blog: Allow Wes Welker to make his own decision

    Concussions are serious business. Thankfully, we're exiting the dark ages when it comes to their effects on the brain and what a concussion can mean for an athlete who sustains several, or just one. So let's allow Wes Welker make his own choice on what to do with his brain, and his football career, and his life. With all of the concussion...

  • Blog: Golf: Primer for the BMW Championship

    Am I looking forward to the Broncos' season opener against the Colts? Well, yeah. But not as much as I'm looking forward to the BMW Championship at Cherry Hills Country Club. Sounds like Rory McIlroy, the world's best golfer, is combining the two. McIlroy told the Golf Channel there's a "90 percent" chance he'll be in Denver for the BMW...

  • Klee: Don't mess with Texas? Don't mess with the Broncos' Peyton Manning.

    DENVER — Who does this Peyton Manning think he is, Johnny Manziel? In a preseason game that meant nothing, unless you ask the Broncos who gained another level of respect for their quarterback, all that was missing was the money sign. Go ahead, Mr. MVP. Rub those fingers together. Throwing 55 touchdown passes in a single regular season was...

  • Klee: If Peyton Manning is right, Broncos should stink more often

    DENVER - The glove. Maybe it's the glove, a tangible, five-fingered reminder of the neck surgeries that threatened Peyton Manning's football career. Eighty degrees in training camp, and Manning wore the glove. He threw touchdowns. The next day, no glove. More touchdowns. No, it's not the glove. Maybe it's the brain. "The way he makes the...

  • Klee: First things first, trophy girls are not trophy girls in cycling

    Welcome to Cycling For Dummies. First things first. In cycling, the trophy girls are not trophy girls. "We are the USA Pro Challenge Podium Hostesses," Courtney explained alongside the fancy stage in downtown Colorado Springs. Podium hostesses? Sounds so official. "It is official," Heidi chimed in. "I get a little sand in my teeth after...

  • Blog: Broncos and Texans joint practice: Good or bad idea?

    The Texans' team bus pulled up to the Broncos headquarters at 10:06 a.m. today. With it, the number of feared NFL pass-rushers grew to four. Von Miller. DeMarcus Ware. J.J. Watt. Jadeveon Clowney. Sounds like fun, unless you're a quarterback. To protect the quarterbacks, Peyton Manning and the Broncos' quarterbacks are wearing blue jerseys....

  • Klee: In Bay Area win, Broncos defense closes gap with offense

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The Broncos didn't do everything right Sunday. It only seemed that way. In a perfectly orange world, Peyton Manning wouldn't wobble up the middle on a quarterback draw. What are you thinking, man? A few things can happen, and none of them are good. But once Denver finished smashing the San Francisco 49ers 34-0 in a...

  • Blog: Broncos: Site of the Super Bowl (in 2016)

      Levi's Stadium, in two words: Goodness gracious. The San Francisco 49ers built a palace. The 68,500-seat football mansion gets its NFL introduction today when the Niners host the Broncos in a preseason game. What's this place all about? Everything. Levi's Stadium has everything, including a Super Bowl in 2016. Looking out from...
