    Evans: Dear Joe Sakic, please don’t waste the Duchene trade haul

    Congrats to Colorado Avalanche general manager Joe Sakic for getting a deal done for disgruntled center Matt Duchene that has received nothing but positive reviews from around the NHL world. I’m happy to see it finally happen. I’ve been calling for Duchene to be sent packing for several years now. Nothing personal against Matt, but […]

    Evans: Season ‘worth saving’, but week of reckoning upon Broncos

    Well, here we are. The Denver Broncos season comes down to Sunday’s game against the hated New England Patriots. Yes, I believe there is still a season worth saving. I know there is a lot of doom and gloom out there after the debacle in Philly. I know there’s a strong sentiment to turn the […]

    Evans: For the Broncos, style points matter against the Giants

    OK, OK. Let’s get these out of the way. I know in the NFL “on any given Sunday” the “other guys get paid too” and “desperate teams are dangerous.” Have I paid enough tribute to the tried and true clichés of the National … Football … League? Good, now let’s get on with this. Not […]

    Evans: Broncos Country, it’s not time to worry about style points

    My observations from the Denver Broncos much-too-close win over the Oakland Raiders: 1. The Broncos defense is starting to look a lot like … … The unit that carried Denver to the Super Bowl 50 victory a couple of years ago. The run defense is on a historic roll, shutting down some very good backs […]

    Evans: Backing into playoffs a losing strategy for Rockies

    Watching the Colorado Rockies attempt to nail down the final wild card spot has been incredibly frustrating. Instead of going out and grabbing it with inspired, aggressive play, the Rockies have relied on other teams to do their dirty work.  They’re meekly playing out the schedule hoping they can nervously look up after, removing their […]

    Evans: What the Broncos need to fix before hosting the Raiders

    You know why there are stereotypes, right? Because they tend to have some truth to them. Know why people in my business talk so much about “trap games?” Because they happen. The latest example is the Denver Broncos loss to the Buffalo Bills. Leading up to it, I talked about the possibility of it being […]

    Evans: Pump the brakes as the pendulum swings on Siemian

    Here are my hot mid-week Denver Broncos (and Trevor Siemian) opinions as they prepare for their dreaded trap game in Buffalo: 1. My oh my, how things have changed regarding Siemian. We’ve gone from “The book is already written on this guy,” “He’s too fragile,” “He’s a career journeyman,” and “Why would you sign up […]

    Evans: The Avalanche and Duchene are stuck with each other

    It doesn’t get much more awkward than Matt Duchene’s comments upon joining the Colorado Avalanche for the start of training camp. Channeling his inner Marshawn Lynch, Duchene said, “I’m here to honor my contract, I’m here for respect of the fans, and I’m here for my teammates.” Yikes. Talk about cutting the tension with a […]
  • Evans: Thoughts on the Broncos must-win over the Chargers

    ► Yeah, let’s start right there. That was a must-win for the Denver Broncos. Don’t give me that nonsense about it being “just one game out of 16.” Some games mean more than others. In an opening week when the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs made huge statements with big road wins in Tennessee […]

    Evans: Making sense of the crowded Broncos quarterback situation

    Oh boy, where to start? Let’s go quarterback by quarterback on the Denver Broncos roster. 1. Kyle Sloter Hey, I loved the story. Who wouldn’t? An undrafted kid out of the University of Northern Colorado making a legitimate bid to be the Broncos backup quarterback? Too good to be true? In the end, it was. […]
