    Coaching Staff in Flux in Denver
    (AP) September 27, 2010

    Denver, CO - In a surprise move, Broncos coach Winuvas informed his team this week that he was leaving mid-season to head to the Motor City and take over the Detroit Lions. The move came at a curious time with the team locked in a four-way battle for the AFC West. However, Winuvas was looking for a challenge, quoted as saying "Denver was a good gig. Don't get me wrong. But I wanted a chance to build something from the ground up..."

    The front office was forced to scramble, but didn't take long to tab their new head man in Coach BadaBing. While new to the OMFL scene, Bing has been around the block and hopes to bring some enthusiasm and stability to the Denver Broncos. "Taking over a team mid-season is never easy," the new coach said at his Monday morning press conference. "You have players who bought into the past regime and often times, there is an adjustment period that must take place. Unfortunately, this division is so competitive that we don't have time to make excuses. We have to win games now if we want to accomplish our goal of winning the AFC West."

    The Broncos are expected to be busy this week on the waiver wire, with Coach Bing bringing in guys that fit his defense first system. They take on the 49ers in week 8 followed by a much needed bye, which will give the team two weeks to put in their scheme changes and prepare for the second half of the season.

    "Following the bye, we have back-to-back divisional games that will pretty much determine whether we are contenders or pretenders," said Bing. "I'm looking forward to the challenge of coaching in what seems to be a pretty competitive division."

    Week 10: Chiefs (17) Broncos (10)

    The Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos played a hard fought slugfest involving some long time of possession drives which resulted in only 6 possessions for each team and a Chiefs 17-10 win. This game was a strategical war down to the final minute. Here is a quick summary of the game.

    1st Quarter
    The Broncos received the opening kickoff and marched down the field mostly behind the hard running of Correll Buckhalter. On 4th and inches from the 7 yard line, FB Justin Green took it in for the TD to give the Broncos a 7-0 lead. The Chiefs followed that up with a nice drive of their own which resulted in a 1st and Goal at the Broncos 1 yard line. The Chiefs were absolutely stuffed up the middle on 3 straight downs before Jammal Charles took a sweep on 4th and Goal from inside the 1 and scored to make it 7-7.

    2nd Quarter
    The Broncos took their next possession down the field with a very similar drive as the opening drive and decide to try and convert on another 4th and Inches inside the Chiefs 15 yard line. This time the Chiefs got plenty of penetration up the gut and stuffed the Broncos for a 2 yard loss and a turnover on downs. The Chiefs would then use their shotgun effectively in their 2 minute offensive to drive inside the Broncos 20 yard line. Matt Cassel then threw an interception in the end zone to ruin a shot at getting at least 3 points. The Broncos would then run out the clock to go into halftime at 7-7.

    3rd Quarter
    The Chiefs put together a nice drive once again and settle for a Ryan Succop 26 yard FG to make the score 10-7 Chiefs. The Broncos would do their thing once again by driving down the field and kicking a 23 yd FG by Matt Prater to make the score 10-10 as time expired in the 3rd Quarter.

    4th Quarter
    The Chiefs open the quarter with the ensuing kickoff and then go 3 and out and are forced to punt. The Broncos end up punting the ball back. The Chiefs drive down into the red zone where the Broncos are forced to burn all their timeouts with only 2 minutes remaining. Coach Badabing uses the only strategy to give his team a chance and allows the Chiefs to run it in with Thomas Jones from 3 yards out with 1:27 to play and no timeouts. 17-10 Chiefs. On the Broncos final drive, Kyle Orton tries to fit in a pass downfield and is off target and FS Reshard Langford picks it off to seal the deal and the win for the Chiefs.

    Great Game Badabing, welcome to the OMFL. See you again in 3 weeks. As always, it hasn't been pretty, but Coach Bluebean is at it again. The Bills (11-5)&(8-8), Rams(10-6), and now the Chiefs?

    Week 11
    Broncos 31, Chargers 17

    The Broncos put it all together in this one, combining an explosive, big-play offense with a solid defensive effort to give Coach BadaBing his first OMFL win, 31-17 over San Diego.

    Denver got on the board first following a San Diego punt. The Broncos capped a five play, 63 yard drive with a Buckhalter 48-yard TD run around the left side. The Chargers were forced to punt again on their next drive, and Denver went to the air, driving into the Bolts' red zone. Kyle Orton went play action, rolled right, and when he was unable to find an open receiver, scrambled into the end zone from 13 yards out for a 14-0 lead.

    The Chargers marched down the field on their next possession, but had their drive stall in the red zone and had to settle for a Nate Kaeding 28-yard field goal. The Broncos had enough time left in the half to respond, and did so on a Matt Prater 32-yard field goal to send them into the half with a 17-3 lead.

    The third quarter started with a couple off-tackle runs by Buckhalter. On third-and-seven from the 22, Orton hit Demaryius Thomas on a 10-yard drag route and Thomas did the rest, speeding past the Charger defense to paydirt. The Chargers came right back with an impressive drive of their own, with Ryan Mathews bringing the team back to within two scores with a 2-yard TD run.

    Denver had to punt on their next drive and the momentum seemed to have swung in the Chargers direction. However, as they did all day long, the Broncos defense stepped up and forced a punt. Pro Bowl punter Mike Scifres did his part, pinning the Broncos at their own 2-yard line. In the shadow of their own end zone, newly acquired fullback Justin Green gave his team some breathing with a 3-yard quick hit up the belly. The next play proved to be the backbreaker for San Diego. Knowing they would probably blitz in an attempt to stop the run, Coach BadaBing called for a quick hitting slant route over the middle. Thomas beat his man off the line and Orton hit him in stride. 95 yards later, Thomas was walking into the end zone with his second score of the game, one that all but put the game away.

    Orton finished the game with a perfect passer rating, completing 13-of-16 passes for 284 yards and two touchdowns. Both scores were long plays to Thomas, who had a career-high 208 yards on just 4 catches. The Broncos also got 112 yards and a TD out of Correll Buckhalter, filling in nicely for injured tailback Knowshown Moreno. Philip Rivers threw for 322 yards for the Chargers, but failed to find the end zone against a tough, bend-but-don't-break Denver defense. Vincent Jackson (107 yards) and Antonio Gates (87 yards) were Rivers' favorite targets, with rookie tailback Ryan Mathews rushing for 52 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries.

    Denver returns to Invesco field in Week 12 to take on a surprising Rams team, while the Chargers head out on the road to take on Indianapolis.

    Late Season Run?
    Broncos jump out early, hold on for 31-24 win over Rams

    [​IMG]
    Backup RB Correll Buckhalter tallied 252 total yards and 2 TD in the Denver victory.

    Denver, CO - The Broncos used a 24-point second quarter to take command early and held off a late Rams charge for a key 31-24 win in week 12. Correll Buckhalter was the offensive star, rushing for 154 yards and a TD on 25 carries while catching 3 passes for 88 yards and another score. His first score was a 64-yard catch and run on a screen pass which put the Broncos up 7-0. The Rams drove right down the field, but were forced to settle for a FG following an impressive goalline stand. Buckhalter scored his second touchdown from one yard out, capping an 8-play drive to put his team up 14-3.

    Denver forced a three-and-out and kept the heat on the Rams. On the first play of the ensuing drive, Kyle Orton caught St. Louis in a blitz and hit Eric Decker over the middle for a 60-yard touchdown pass. A D.J. Williams interception (his first of two on the day) set up the next Denver score, which was a 3-yard TD pass from Orton to fullback Justin Green. Denver tacked on a 46-yard field goal from Matt Prater right before the half to take a commanding 31-3 lead into the locker room.

    In the second half, the Broncos went to the ground with Buckhalter gaining over 100 yards in the final 30 minutes alone. However, the lack of aggressiveness nearly cost the Broncos. Following a scoreless third quarter, Steven Jackson scored on a 28-yard pass from rookie QB Sam Bradford. The score came with 5:38 left and appeared to be meaningless at the time. The Rams got the ball back with just under 3 minutes left and Bradford hooked up with Donnie Avery on a 82-yard TD pass down the left sideline to close the gap to 2 touchdowns at 31-17. Realizing that the game was not yet over, Denver decided to take the reigns off the offense. Quincy Butler made Coach Bing regret that decision, intercepting a Kyle Orton pass over the middle. Five plays later, the lead was cut to 7 when TE Daniel Fells caught Bradford's third TD pass of the game in the back of the end zone.

    With 1 time out left, the Rams decided to kick the ball deep. Denver needed to pick up a first down to secure the win, and was able to do so when Buckhalter picked up 15 yards on 2nd and 7. Orton led his troops into the victory formation and Denver was able to celebrate the key win.

    Orton finished the day near perfect, completing 13-of-16 passes for 280 yards. He threw three touchdown passes and had just the one interception. The Broncos also got a HUGE day out of MLB D.J. Williams, who racked up 9 tackles (6 for loss), had two interceptions and added a sack for good measure. Bradford went over the 300-yard mark for St. Louis, connecting on 18-of-30 for 308 yards with 3 scores against two interceptions.

    The win was the second straight for Denver, improving their record to 5-6. They head into the season's stretch run tied with five other teams, just one game behind Cincinnati for the league's final playoff spot. A rematch with division leading Kansas City is on tap for week 13.

    Wild-Card Fever
    Broncos Topple Chiefs 31-26, Move into Tie for Final AFC Playoff Spot

    [​IMG]
    Andre Goodman's two interceptions were key to the Broncos' third consecutive win.

    Kansas City, MO - When the Broncos dropped their first two games under new coach Bing, all hope seemed to have been lost. Three weeks and three wins later, Denver finds itself in the thick of the playoff race.

    Kyle Orton bounced back from two early interceptions to throw for 332 yards and 3 TD as the Broncos moved into a tie for the final AFC playoff spot with a 31-26 road upset over the Kansas City Chiefs. The game was a true heavyweight battle, with each team exchanging blows throughout the day.

    Both teams came stumbling out of the gate, with the clubs trading early interceptions. Kansas City was forced to punt on their second possession, but quickly got the ball back on a Tamba Hali interception and cashed in, with Matt Cassell hitting Leonard Pope from 13 yards out to take a 7-0 lead. On the Broncos ensuing possession, Orton rebounded by moving his team into KC territory. In what was a constant theme of the day, Orton converted a 3rd-and-long by hitting Terrell Owens on a deep in route. Owens did the rest, scampering 45 yards for a game-tying touchdown.

    The tie was shortlived though, with Jamaal Charles taking the Matt Prater kickoff 99 yards to put the Chiefs back on top. Ryan Succop missed the PAT, leaving the lead at 6, 13-7. Prater got Denver back within three with a 35 yard FG, but Charles struck again on the next Kansas City drive. Matched up in 1-on-1 coverage with Broncos LB D.J. Williams, Charles caught a quick slant towards the sidelines and outraced the Bronco defense to the end zone, extending the Chiefs lead to 10 at 20-10. The second quarter fireworks weren't done however. Orton and Owens hooked up again, this time on a corner route which broke for 76 yards bringing the Broncos back within 3 points. A Succop 47 yard FG as the clock expired capped a 33-point quarter and sent KC into the break with a 23-17 lead.

    The defenses made adjustments and played much better in the second half. Both teams were forced to punt on their first third quarter drives. Denver got the ball back and continued their early down problems, putting them in third and long situations. Once again, they were able to convert as they did all day (7-for-12 on 3rd down), marching down the field into scoring range. Demaryius Thomas caught Orton's third TD pass of the day from 7 yards out giving Denver their first lead of the game at 24-23.

    Kansas City wasted no time taking the lead back, driving into Bronco territory following another good kickoff return from Charles. The Chief drive stalled at the 30-yard line and Ryan Succop split the uprights from 37 yards out to put his team back on top 26-24. The teams exchanged three-and-outs, with Denver getting the ball back with just over 5 minutes left down by two. KC had put the clamps on RB Correll Buckhalter all day, so Coach Bing elected to keep putting the ball in the air. Completing passes to 5 different receivers on the drive, Orton drove his team into the red zone. Buckhalter finally broke through just before the two-minute warning, going off-tackle left to score from 3 yards out to reclaim the lead for Denver at 31-26.
    Matt Cassel had the ball in his hands with a chance to be a hero. Kansas City converted a couple first downs to get out near midfield. Cassel tried to fit a pass into WR Dwayne Bowe, but Denver CB Andre Goodman had other ideas, intercepting his second pass of the day and sealing the huge road win.

    Charles stole the show for Kansas City. He was kept in check on the ground (27 yards on 10 carries), but racked up 102 yards and a touchdown through the air and added over 200 yards in kickoff returns. Cassel finished the day 13-for-22 for 187 yards and 2 TD, but his three interceptions proved too much for the Chiefs to overcome. For Denver, Owens finished the day with 5 catches for 162 yards and the two touchdowns. Buckhalter, Thomas and Eric Decker each chipped in with 4 receptions, as Orton hooked up with eight different targets on 22 completions.

    Denver improves to 6-6 and joins the logjam that is fighting for the 2nd wildcard spot. At press time, the Dolphins, Browns, Chargers and Broncos were all tied, with a couple other teams possibly joining them by the end of week 13. The Bronocs also kept their slim AFC West championship hopes alive, pulling to within 2 games of the division leading Chiefs (8-4). They will head back on the road in week 14 to play Coach West and his Arizona Cardinals in another must win game.

    One Step Closer
    Broncos Win Streak at 4 After Impressive 20-Point Road Victory

    [​IMG]
    The Broncos dominated on the ground, led by Correll Buckhalter's 160 rushing yards.

    Phoenix, AZ - As the AFC playoff race continues to change on a weekly basis, one thing remains the same. The Denver Broncos aren't going anywhere.

    Correll Buckhalter rushed for 160 yards and a touchdown and Matt Prater added four 40+ yard field goals as the Broncos cruised to their fourth straight win, 33-13 over Arizona. The win will keep them in a tie for the final AFC wild card spot and with the Chargers win over Kansas City, Denver finds itself just one game behind the Chiefs for the AFC West lead.

    Arizona got the ball first and was forced to punt following three incomplete passes. Buckhalter started the scoring shortly thereafter, bouncing an off-tackle run outside for a 44-yard touchdown. Michael Ray-Garvin would fumble the ensuing kickoff, leading to a Kyle Orton to Demaryius Thomas 17-yard hookup. Another Cardinal fumble set up Prater's first field goal of the day, as he capped the first quarter scoring by splitting the uprights from 45 yards out.

    A quiet second quarter saw each team exchange punts. Arizona looked to be getting on the board towards the end of the half, but their bid was stymied when grizzled veteran Brian Dawkins intercepted John Skelton in the end zone. Kyle Orton led a quick 2-minute drive into enemy territory and Prater sent the Broncos into halftime with a 20-0 lead, connecting from 52-yards out as time expired in the second quarter.

    The second half opened with Denver flexing their muscles. They went on a 9-play, 78-yard drive, with Orton handing the ball off on all nine snaps. Buckhalter and backup tailback Lendale White did the bulk of the work, with third string back Justin Fargas getting the glory. Fargas went into the end zone off tackle left for a 5-yard score, extending the lead to 27-0. Skelton and the Cardinals responded by getting on the board for the first time all day. An impressive drive was capped with a 17-yard strike from the Cardinals young QB to fullback Carey Davis.

    Prater's third field goal of the day opened the scoring in the fourth quarter, as he booted a 46-yard kick through the uprights. Skelton struck back quickly, hitting Steve Breaston on a streak route for an 88-yard score. A failed two-point conversion kept the lead at 3 scores, with the road team leading 30-13. Prater would add another long field goal (49 yards) and the Denver defense would do the rest, keeping the Cards off the scoreboard the rest of the way.

    The 33 points for Denver marked the fourth time in as many games that they have reached the 30 point mark. Orton was efficient in the victory, completing 12-of-14 passes for 116 yards, with a touchdown and interception. This game was won on the ground however, with the Broncos tallying 220 total rushing yards on 36 carries. Buckhalter picked up 160 of those yards, with Lendale White chipping in to the tune of 47 yards on 14 rush attempts. Skelton finished the day with respectable numbers, going 18-for-36 for 270 yards and 2 TDs.

    Denver's quest for an AFC playoff berth continues in week 15, when they stay on the road and take on the Oakland Raiders at the Coliseum. A win would clinch at least a .500 season for the Broncos, although at this point, they have their sights set much higher.

    All or Nothing
    Pressure on Team Builds Following 4-Game Win Streak

    [​IMG]
    The Broncos defense, led by middle linebacker D.J. Williams, has keyed their mid-season turnaround.

    Denver, CO - For the past four weeks, the Broncos have been in must win mode. They knew sitting at 3-6 that their margin for error was slim. Even after running off four straight wins, their job is far from over.

    "We put ourselves in that hole early and you get what deserve," said QB Kyle Orton, who currently ranks second in the AFC with a passer rating of 98.7. "We've turned things around and are playing good football right now, but one slip up could cost us a shot at the playoffs."

    The race for the final AFC playoff spot is so complicated, you need a Masters degree to figure it out. A wrench was thrown into the equation with Cleveland's upset of Cincinnati in week 15. The Browns now lead their division based on tiebreakers, with the Bengals currently owning a 1/2 game lead on the Broncos and division rival Chargers for the final playoff spot.

    And that only covers the wild card. The quest for the AFC West Crown is still a three-horse race between the Chiefs, Chargers and Broncos. Kansas City currently sits one game ahead of the pack at 8-5, but has a tough remaining schedule including the NFC West leading St. Louis Rams this week.

    One thing we know - this will all shakedown on the field. In week 16, Cincinnati and San Diego will meet in a pivotal game. That will be followed by the Chargers-Broncos showdown in week 17, which could very well be a playoff game in itself.

    Before that, the Broncos have work to do. A rivalry game at Oakland Alameda Coliseum in Week 15 with the Raiders is sure to be a battle. Week 16 brings a date with the Houston Texans and their explosive offense. Wins in both of these contests will be required to make that final week meaningful.

    That being said, the focus for Denver is on the Raiders. The key for Denver will be stopping the force that is Darren McFadden, who is averaging an amazing 8.1 yards per carry on the season. Keeping him in check will force Oakland to the air, where Jason Campbell's 30 interceptions are a league-high.

    "Rivalry games are always tough," said Coach BadaBing, who is 4-2 since taking over mid-season. "We don't expect them to back down despite their recent struggles. Our guys will be ready to play."

    They'd better be - if they want any shot at playing in January...

    The Waiting Game
    The Broncos Win over San Diego Puts AFC Playoff Race on the Clock

    [​IMG]
    Kyle Orton was near perfect on this day, keeping his team's slim playoff hopes alive.

    Denver, CO - A disappointing loss a week ago put the Broncos fate in the hands of others. They would need a win plus a ton of help to even have a shot at a playoff berth. For the first time in three weeks, Denver did their part.

    The Broncos scored points on every possession except the clock-killing last drive and held off a late San Diego charge (no pun intended) for a 24-21 win in their regular season finale. Kyle Orton was magnificent in this one, completing 20-of-26 passes for 280 yards and 2 TDs, hooking up with 6 different receivers along the way.

    Denver got on the board first when a long drive stalled deep in San Diego territory. Matt Prater's 32-yard field goal put his team up 3-0. The Chargers responded with a long drive of their own, getting all the way down to the Denver 2-yard line. Three consecutive stuffs on running attempts led to a Nate Kaeding 18-yard FG to tie the game at 3.

    In the second quarter, Denver took the ball and once again marched right down the field. Rather than settling for the 3 points, the Broncos punched it in, with fullback Justin Green scoring from 1-yard out for a 10-3 Bronco lead. Kaeding connected from 46 yards out with 1:30 left in the half to cut the lead to four points at 10-6. However, the Chargers left too much time on the clock. Orton capitalized, driving his team into enemy territory and putting 7 more points on the board when he connected with Terrell Owens for a 26-yard TD - the seventh time the pair has hooked up for a TD this season. The late score sent the Broncos into the locker room with a 17-6 lead.

    San Diego had deferred to start the game and received the ball to start the third quarter. They imposed their will on the Broncos, wearing out their defense with a 14 play, 79 yard drive which lasted nearly 5 minutes. Philip Rivers capped things off with a 16-yard hookup with Malcolm Floyd to bring his team within four at 17-13. Denver answered once again, going on on a 4 1/2 minute drive themselves. They regained an 11-point lead when Orton found third string running back Justin Fargas in the left flat for a 5-yard score. Fargas, who got the start due to injuries to Knowshown Moreno and Correll Buckhalter, found daylight outside a blitzing linebacker and found his way into the end zone for the second time this season.

    The Chargers would not go down without a fight. They would get within a field goal when Rivers and Floyd connected for their second touchdown of the day, this time from 18 yards out with just under 5 minutes remaining. Darren Sproles caught the 2-point conversion in the back of the end zone to bring San Diego within 3 at 24-21.

    The Denver offense had been efficient all day and would be asked to finish things off. Surprisingly, they went to the air early in the drive, with Orton connecting with Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker on key first down conversions. The Broncos had the ball in Charger territory at their 41-yard line and faced a big third down as they neared the two minute warning. Fargas ran right, but would be denied setting up a 4th and 1 and a tough decision for Coach BadaBing. Bing had watched his defense get carved up on two second half drives and with San Diego needing just a field goal with two timeouts left, didn't want to leave it up to his defense. Instead, in a much maligned call, he decided to leave his offense on the field. Orton would reward his faith, finding Owens on a two-yard in route to pick up the first down and essentially seal the game. Fargas picked up one more first down on an off-tackle run, and Orton kneeled on the final play of the regular season before sprinting to the locker room with the ball in his raised right hand.

    Owens led all receivers with 6 catches for 102 yards and the touchdown. Fargas gained 59 tough yards on 17 carries, while the Denver defense held OMFL rookie of the year Ryan Mathews to just 40 yards on the day. Rivers was 15-for-22 for 240 yards and two touchdowns, with Vincent Jackson, Antonio Gates and Floyd each surpassing 60 yards through the air.

    Denver's win creates an absolute logjam in the AFC for the final playoff spot. At press time, 5 teams were deadlocked at 8-8 with the Browns-Steelers game holding the key to chaos. A Steeler win will test the tiebreaker system as one team will get a date with the Chiefs while the other 5 sit at home. If Cleveland can win the game, they will earn the final spot, leaving the other .500 teams at home for the playoffs.
