Broncos / John Elway starts making moves

OTFB Broncos Reporter

By Julie Dixon // @ABroncoNole


After being very quiet since the season ended, the Denver Broncos have made a few moves. They picked up Chris Harris, Jr’s option of $1.1 million. This makes his contract for the year guaranteed.

They traded Aqib Talib to the Los Angeles Rams where he will be reunited with Wade Phillips, Denver’s former super bowl winning defensive coordinator. He’ll also be teaming up with another former player, Kayvon Webster.

In the trade, Denver received a fifth round draft pick, and many believe this was a low ball move. However, a source said that he wasn’t happy with Vance Joseph or the way the defense was being run. Publicly, he said everything was swell.

Chargers need to Bolt into action this offseason

By Cindy Davis//@XO_CindyDavis


This upcoming season for the Chargers may be one of the most important seasons yet. According to ESPN, since their move from San Diego to Los Angeles, their attendance for their home games has declined by over 50% from the 2016 to 2017 season. Since they are sharing a city, and eventually a stadium with the Los Angeles Rams, the competition is on more than ever to draw fans in.

There are still many disgruntled fans in San Diego who dis-owned the Chargers (Dean Spanos) after they seemingly abandoned their home city. So where do they need to start to build their fan base back up? The answer is simple: they need to win, and they need to win now.

Bolt Up and Keep Pounding

By Cindy Davis//@XO_CindyDavis


For me, waking up on football Sunday is equivalent to a kid waking up on Christmas morning. Football has always been my favorite sport and a pretty big part of my life. I was Born in San Diego, CA but bred in Charlotte, NC, which is how I developed my love for both the Chargers and the Panthers. My dad has always been a huge Charger fan, so I was born into the fanbase. My family also quickly adopted the Panthers as a second team after settling in Charlotte. The older I got, I learned more and more about football, and I was hooked. My love for football was taken to a whole new level in 2008 when I started regularly attending Panther games with my boyfriend. Since that time, I have very rarely missed a home game and I have even traveled to several away games!

Will Denver Get Their Quarterback?

OTFB Broncos Reporter

By Julie Dixon //@ABroncoNole

Let’s talk about the quarterback situation.  If quarterback Kirk Cousins were to take a leap of faith and sign with Denver while under construction, keeping QB Trevor Siemian would be a smart move. He’s super cheap, has experience and knows the new playbook.

Plus, no fan would spend their life on Twitter trashing Cousins to get Siemian. This would be the lone exception to keep him.  If Denver drafts a quarterback, there is no way you want Siemian around.  If the rookie fails, the fans will be calling for Siemian.  Hopefully, Denver has learned from the past.  As long as Trevor Siemian is on the team, the fans are always going to want him under center.

2018 Denver Broncos Moves: All Talk, No Action

OTFB Broncos Reporter

By Julie Dixon // @ABroncoNole

In Broncos Country, the word is Rumors. Not Fleetwood Mac’s album, but the non-stop speculation from “sources”. So much talk, so little action.

Sources say defensive back Aqib Talib, wide receiver  Emmanuel Sanders, and quarterback Trevor Siemian are on the trading block. In addition, names like running back C.J. Anderson, outside linebacker Brandon Marshall and linebacker Todd Davis have also been rumored. Add defensive end Shane Ray to that list and you get the picture.

WR Cody Latimer is a free agent, as are WRs Bennie Fowler and Jordan Taylor. Tight end Virgil Green is one as well. WR Demaryius Thomas is due 1.1 to keep his contract going. Center Matt Paradis is a restricted free agent. Seems like I just listed 1/2 our team.

Here’s What I think: Sanders is on the block because he had a problem in Texas and the team didn’t know about it. A veteran like him should know to contact your team and that everything always comes out, so not contacting the team says a lot. He could be kept to entice a guy like QB Kirk Cousins; however, he and Thomas are aging and always hurt.

Talib is rumored to be available because the thought is Denver needs cap space for Cousins and that cornerbacks Bradley Roby and Brendan Langley can replace him. Talib has lost a step and I’m still mad at him because of the Week 17 loss.  I disagree on Cousins in Denver and that the other two can replace Aqib.  With that said, if Denver wants to bring in some fresh blood in a rebuild, I can see this, but not because of Cousins or that Roby is better.

Anderson returning seems like a dismal chance because of his age and in a run-first system, he barely got a 1,000 yards.  The offensive line was actually pretty good as run graters. Not to mention, they have two young backs they need to get going and most likely will draft a third.

Trading Shane Ray is ridiculous. He was injured last season and when he came back late in the year, he wasn’t 100%. I say they sign OLB Shaquil Barrett and keep Ray.  As far as the interior linebackers, I hope Denver drafts LSU LB Tremaine Edmunds. Marshall has too much dead money to cut him and a team won’t pick it up in a trade because of age and injury history. Not to mention, he was the lead tackler.  This will leave Davis on the hot seat.


Soon enough, all this talk will turn into action, and it’ll be fun to see what happens!

The State of the Denver Broncos

OTFB Broncos Reporter

By Julie Dixon // @ABroncoNole  

Can 2017 be erased from my mind, please? Not sure anyone could have predicted the rotten outcome of this season, unless they were me screaming about what not to do for the last two years. Being “right” has been no consolation.

What John Elway does with the quarterback will either be his downfall or his saving grace. He’s a God in Broncos Country, but he’s sliding. Outside of signing Peyton Manning, he’s botched the handling of this position since 2012 and the disasters of his poor decisions (or allowing his coaches to make them) are now front and center.

Tennessee Titans Defeat Kansas City Chiefs By One Point

Official Tennessee Titans Reporter

By Karen Christensen // @ksc47

Titans 22 – Chiefs 21

The first half of the game belonged to the Kansas City Chiefs.  They scored on a touchdown by Chiefs’ running back Kareem Hunt, who ran the ball in from the one-yard line.  They scored another TD when tight end Travis Kelce caught a 14-yard pass from quarterback Alex Smith.  Not a good start for the Tennessee Titans

Titans’ quarterback Marcus Mariota was leading a good drive during the second quarter until he threw an interception to cornerback Marcus Peters; Titans head coach Mike Mularkey later stated that it was Titan wide receiver Corey Davis’ fault as Davis didn’t run his route correctly. The Titans have had this “miscommunication” and “execution” problem throughout this season.  It has frustrated the coaches and the fans and has lead to much speculation about the security of the coaching positions in Tennessee.
