NFL RUSH

Denver Broncos!

The free agent RB will be spending at least another year with the Broncos. Last season Ronnie Hillman led the Denver Broncos with 207 carries and 863 rushing yards!



Yes, you read that correctly. Ronnie Hillman was once coached by rapper Snoop Dogg.

Snoop Dogg ran a youth football league in Los Angeles, and as a child growing up in Long Beach, Ronnie played on one of Snoop Dogg’s teams. The team Ronnie played with was so good that Snoop Dogg bought the entire team Sony Playstations when they competed in a tournament in Miami!

If you could pick a celebrity coach, who would you choose?
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray broke loose against the New York Giants for a 54-yard touchdown run.

Meanwhile, New York Jets RB Chris Ivory went for a speeding 58-yard rush against the Buffalo Bills.

Who ran faster?!
St. Louis Rams running back Todd Gurley broke free for a huge 52-yard run against the Arizona Cardinals.

Despite the final outcome going the Broncos way 27-26, the story of the night was the breakout performance turned in by St. Louis Rams rookie LB Alec Ogletree.      The University of Georgia grad nearly single-handedly kept the Rams in the game. Ogletree ripped the football from Ronnie Hillman's arms, scooped it up and returned it for a13 yard TD. He later added an interception of an errant Peyton Manning pass and ended the game with a half dozen tackles.

Poll. Who should be the Broncos starting RB?

Another very closely watched NFL training camp competition this year is between Ronnie Hillman and Montee Bell for starting RB for the Denver Broncos.

Speedy Ronnie Hillman is in his second year with the Broncos, serving mostly as their third-down back last season. He is a terrific receiver and has the speed to break any run for a long gainer. Rookie Montee Ball is a bruising back who has the power to run between tackles and the size to pick up blitzing defenders.

 

 

Poll. Will the Broncos win more or less than 10 games in 2012?

Last Year’s Record: : 8-8


Predicted 2012 Record: 10-6

Players Added: 
QB Peyton Manning, TE Jacob Tamme, CB Tracy Porter, DT Derek Wolfe, QB Brock Osweiler and RB Ronnie Hillman

 
Player Lost: 
QB Tim Tebow, QB Brady Quinn, and WR Eddie Royal

 

Much like last season, the Broncos fortunes this year will depend on the performance of their Quarterback.  Tim Tebow’s journey last year from benchwarmer to playoff hero was nothing short of amazing. His leadership skills and penchant for 4th quarter comebacks combined to elevate him to folk hero status. 

 

As fun as Tebow’s exploits were, he will be replaced this year by future Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning.  After spending last year recovering from a series of injuries, Peyton arrives in Denver looking to reclaim his status as one of the best QBs in the game.  If healthy, he’s capable of elevating the Broncos into the AFC title conversation. It’s a big “if,” but we’re willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. 

 

The Defense is lead by last year’s Defensive Rookie of the Year, LB Von Miller, who combined with DE Elvis Dumervil, rookie DT Derek Wolfe, and future Hall-of-Famer CB Champ Bailey to form a solid unit. 

 

All things considered, we view the Broncos as a team to watch this year.
