Denver Broncos = Kentucky 2.0?

 

If you don’t fall into the category of every other person I’ve met in Kentucky–who either loves the Bengals, Colts or Steelers, then perhaps you can join me in hopping on the Denver Broncos bandwagon following this year’s 2012 NFL Draft. Not a Tim Tebow fan? Not a problem. Tebow, once a player who caused people to either love or hate the Broncos, has moved on to the Jets. Now we as Kentucky fans can choose to focus on the fact that the Denver Broncos have 4 former Kentucky players on the roster: Jeremy Jarmon, Wesley Woodyard, Jacob Tamme and most recently, Danny Trevathan. Not only can we rally behind 4 Kentucky players all finding themselves on the same NFL roster, but they were all beloved former Kentucky players.

 

Outside of a player such as Randall Cobb, Jarmon, Woodyard, Trevathan and Tamme are four of the more likable Kentucky alumni football players. All four were positive members of their respective teams while they wore the blue and white. Woodyard and Trevathan were perhaps two of the best to ever play their position while at Kentucky. With four likable Kentucky players on the Broncos roster, can Denver now become Big Blue Nation’s adopted NFL team? For those Kentucky fans who already have intense loyalty toward one team or another, can Denver at least become “that team you cheer for when your own team isn’t playing?” I don’t see any reason why not.

 

I have no intense loyalty to any one NFL team, so I plan to adopt Denver as my new team. Four of my favorite UK players in recent memory on 1 team? I’ll take it. Where can I buy my Broncos jersey?

    I’m not really into the NFL, but I’ll be cheering for Denver next season. I also like Peyton Manning infinitely more than Tebow

    so by calling the broncos kentucky 2.0 you mean they are going to suck extremely hard??

    Sorry. I hope the broncos fail miserably, but the UK boys stay injury free.

    It’s worth a mention that Champ Kelly, a former UK WR, is the Denver Broncos Assistant Director of Pro Personnel. Looks like Champ is doing a great job, and now the Broncos can be my second favorite team to the Bears…now they just need to trade for Randall Cobb!

    Kentucky 2.0. Let me be the first to say they better hope not… Now, if we could just give them Joker, we’d be in great shape!

    5 – I agree! I normally cheer for any pro team that has former UK players, but can’t cheer for the broncos … after the lousy way they treated Tebow.

    I used to like the Broncos but with the addition of Peyton, I also hope they fail miserably.

    I liked Broncos this past year. I was really pulling for Tebow. I really liked Tebow at Florida and thought he was one of the best college football players I had ever seen.

    Ive been a long time Seahawk fan and of course UK fan. I would love to welcome more people from the state of KY to join me and cheer on the Seahawks! I think I’m the only one in the state as of now

    I have no problem with cheering for the Broncs when they aren’t playing my Bengals. The Bengals are just racking up the solid draft picks!

    I gotta stick with my Bengals, have been through so much grief with them, now maybe things are looking up!

    my guess for finding a jersey is to go to nfl.com or broncos website.

    Ally Tucker, I’m a UK fan living in Denver. I have been scouring the city for Woodyard jerseys, but no dice. Hopefully, there will be a Tamme jersey & a Trevathan jersey(if he makes the team) this year.

    #5- Totally agree. As an Oakland Raiders fan, I just can’t do it. Wish them well, but I hope their season crash and burns.

    Don’t forget. Keith Kidd is director of pro personnel with the broncos.

    As a life long fan of the Broncos and Kentucky I hope that this year all the UK boys shine. Woodyard has been an excellent addition and I have always wanted Tamme to be there, but I do think Danny can have a big impact on Special Teams. Hope he gets to play in a few formations, but they have a good LB squad. For all those raider “fans”, go back to your black hole aka the laughing stock of the NFL.

    “UK 2.0” Now, that is some funny $hit right there. Don’t tell the Broncos that, they will either cry or laugh their butts off. And not even Peyton Manning could have done anything with this Kentucky team during the ‘Joker era.’ Only thing gonna fix this mess is for Mitch to man up and go get a REAL F’ing COACH.

    90% of the video shown of SEC players during the draft was against UK, that says a lot. I’m looking at you Joker AND Mitch…

    27. if Peyton Manning was our qb my poop could coach the team we would win the sec

    Wasn’t Jarmon was cut in September and is currently a free agent?

    #28 – Yeah, and if UT had Manning, they’d win the National Championship… oh wait, it took Tee Martin to get that job done.

    Peyton Manning ain’t walking through that door and neither is Tee Martin – he’s walking out it…

    UK football will continue to suck until WE make it a priority – having a dude named ‘Joker’ as our coach says alot about us and our program – thanks Mitch.

    I would say a lot of it has to do with Champ Kelly being their recruiter. A wonderful person and friend but great recuriter. Played for Kentucky on both sides of the ball along with the horsemen.

    ‘For those Kentucky fans who already have intense loyalty toward one team or another, can Denver at least become “that team you cheer for when your own team isn’t playing?” I don’t see any reason why not.’ – one name, Peyton Manning. I will never cheer for any team that doofus is on. Go Patriots.
