    Evans: What happened during the Broncos bye, and what it means

    » The Oakland Raiders are in obvious tank mode. They are dismantling everything with the idea of building it back up in time for their move to Las Vegas.

    Evans: This Denver Broncos organization stands at a crossroads

    » The missed field goals at the end of the first half and as time expired serve as a perfect microcosm of the Denver Broncos current plight. It was bad coaching to decide to try a 62-yarder with 18 seconds left in the half knowing the Houston Texans had two timeouts, were only down three, […]

    Evans: The last stand for Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph

    » Here it is, the first checkpoint along the way for when it would make sense to fire Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph.

    Evans: Is a blowup coming for this Denver Broncos squad?

    Hot sports opinions from the Denver Broncos no-show in the swamps of Jersey: » Where to begin? Let’s start with the defense. This was supposed to be the Broncos’ rock, their identity.

    Evans: For the Denver Broncos Sunday, a win is a win is a win

    Sorry, I’m not interested in style points when it comes to the Denver Broncos 27-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Sure, it shouldn’t have been that close. But in a game that I felt was a must win for the Broncos, all I care about is getting the win, especially when it comes to Week […]
