Klis‘ Mike Drop podcast: 1-on-1 with legendary Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan before his Ring of Fame induction and a huge game against the Raiders

October 15, 2021

It's about time. 

Former Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan, who won two Super Bowls with Denver, will be inducted into the team's Ring of Fame this weekend when the Broncos host the Las Vegas Raiders. The ceremony will take place at halftime. 

In the latest edition of his podcast "Klis' Mike Drop," our 9NEWS Broncos insider Mike Klis sits down with the best head coach in team history for an interview about what the induction means to Shanahan, his time with the Broncos, the storied history of the franchise and plenty more. 

Mike also takes a look at Denver's huge game against the Raiders on Sunday, who will be without former head coach Jon Gruden after he resigned earlier this week following the release of dozens of offensive e-mails. 

Sitting with a 3-2 record, the Broncos really need a win, especially with a short week and a trip to Cleveland for a Thursday night game up next.

Broncos get good and bad news on injuries, 1-on-1 with Justin Strnad and a trip to Pittsburgh vs. Big Ben and the Steelers

Broncos get good and bad news on injuries, 1-on-1 with Justin Strnad and a trip to Pittsburgh vs. Big Ben and the Steelers

October 8, 2021

What a difference one game can make. 

A week ago this time the Denver Broncos were flying high, sitting at 3-0 and one of just five undefeated teams in the NFL. After a tough 23-7 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Denver is now 3-1 and desperate to get back on track in Pittsburgh on Sunday. 

In the latest edition of his podcast "Klis' Mike Drop," our 9NEWS Broncos insider Mike Klis briefly looks back at the defeat to Baltimore, but also has some late news on Denver's injury front. It includes a disappointing update on Courtland Sutton, but a much better outlook for Teddy Bridgewater, Dalton Risner and Graham Glasgow. 

Mike then sits down with Broncos inside linebacker Justin Strnad, who has been thrust into a huge role after the injury to Josey Jewell. Strnad missed all of 2020 after suffering a wrist injury and will now take Jewell's spot the rest of 2021. 

Finally, Mike takes a look at the Broncos Week 5 matchup against the Steelers and QB Ben Roethlisberger, who might be on his last legs in the NFL. The Denver defense has a big opportunity against a struggling Pittsburgh offense to get the Broncos to 4-1.

Klis‘ Mike Drop podcast special edition: Chatting with Steelers greats Franco Harris and Rocky Bleier about rushing record they were unaware existed

Klis‘ Mike Drop podcast special edition: Chatting with Steelers greats Franco Harris and Rocky Bleier about rushing record they were unaware existed

October 6, 2021

There's been a lot of chatter this week about what the Ravens did on the final play of the game against the Broncos. 

Rather than take a knee, Baltimore ran the football with the game in hand up 23-7 (and just three second left on the clock) to extend its 100-yard rushing streak to 43 consecutive games and tie an NFL record. 

In the latest edition of his podcast "Klis' Mike Drop," our 9NEWS Broncos insider Mike Klis talks with two Steelers legends who the current Ravens are now tied with for the mark. Franco Harris and Rocky Bleier joined Mike and were unaware they even held the previous record. 

“I wish I would have known that we held that record,’’ former Steelers’ running back Bleier said in a Zoom interview Wednesday with 9NEWS and his longtime friend and fellow Steelers’ ball-carrier Harris. “The first time I heard about it was when I got this text message."

Led by the fullback Harris and halfback Bleier, the Pittsburgh Steelers had run off 43 consecutive games of at least 100 yards starting from Game 13 of a 14-game schedule in 1974 until game 13 of the 1977 season. The Ravens matched that this past weekend in controversial fashion, so it was fun to hear from Harris and Bleier.

September 30, 2021

The Denver Broncos are off to a 3-0 start and all three victories have come in decisive fashion, including a Week 3 rout of the New York Jets, 26-0. 

In the latest edition of his podcast "Klis' Mike Drop," our 9NEWS Broncos insider Mike Klis recaps the victory, including the first shutout for the Broncos defense since a 16-0 win over the Tennessee Titans in the 2019 season. 

Mike then sits down with Broncos center Lloyd Cushenberry III, who played every snap in his rookie season and has continued the snap streak so far to start 2021. 

Finally, Mike takes a look at Denver's Week 4 matchup against the Ravens. It shapes up to be the Broncos' first real test of the season and Empower Field at Mile High should be rocking on Sunday, with perfect fall weather also in the forecast.

The Broncos impressive start to 2021, injury concerns, 1-on-1 with TE Eric Saubert and a trip to Jacksonville in Week 2

September 17, 2021

One week, one win. 

The Denver Broncos started the 2021 season with an impressive 27-13 win over the New York Giants in a game that wasn't as close as the final score. 

In the latest edition of his podcast "Klis' Mike Drop," our 9NEWS Broncos insider Mike Klis recaps the Week 1 victory, including the excellent debut of QB Teddy Bridgewater. 

But not everything was perfect, as the Broncos suffered several key injuries. Cornerback Ronald Darby and wide receiver Jerry Jeudy landed on IR and offensive lineman Graham Glasgow ended up in the hospital with an irregular heartbeat. Darby and Jeudy will miss at least three weeks, while Glasgow is doubtful for Sunday. 

Mike then sits down with Broncos tight end Eric Saubert, who is No. 3 on the depth chart at the position, but still plays a key role on the team. 

Finally, Mike takes a look at Denver's Week 2 matchup in Jacksonville. It's a game the Broncos should win, but Mike says beware, this one could be closer than many fans anticipate.

Week 1 of the 2021 season is finally here as the Broncos ready for the Giants, 1-on-1 with starting QB Teddy Bridgewater

September 8, 2021

Week 1 of the 2021 NFL season starts on Thursday night as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the Dallas Cowboys, and then the rest of the NFL gets going on Sunday and Monday. 

For the Denver Broncos that means a trip to New York to battle the Giants, in a very winnable game. In fact, it's one of three games to start Denver's season they could win. After that it's a trip to Jacksonville to battle the Jaguars then a home game against the hapless Jets. 

In the latest edition of his podcast "Klis' Mike Drop," our 9NEWS Broncos insider Mike Klis previews the game in New York on Sunday and also goes 1-on-1 with Denver QB Teddy Bridgewater, who won the job after a training camp and preseason battle with Drew Lock.

Broncos QB competition starts at Week 1 of OTAs, 1-on-1 with rookie Jonathon Cooper and Aaron Rodgers still looming

May 26, 2021

They're back. 

The Denver Broncos officially started Week 1 of OTAs on Monday and almost the entire team showed up and was ready to work. 

In the latest episode of his podcast Klis' Mike Drop, our 9NEWS Broncos insider Mike Klis starts by discussing the all but two players who were at the UCHealth Training Center for drills and practice this week. Some others were excused due to a variety of ailments. 

Mike also discusses the QB competition between Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater and notes the Aaron Rodgers saga is still looming for the Broncos and other teams. 

Next, Mike goes 1-on-1 with seventh-round draft pick Jonathon Cooper. The interview was taped before Cooper's ablation heart procedure, but they discuss the ailment because it's been something Cooper's had to deal with in the past. Mike thinks it could be a "red-shirt" year for Cooper and he might be on Denver's practice squad. 

Mike then wraps up by discussing the early part of the Broncos schedule, and does think head coach Vic Fangio's seat could be a little warm if Denver doesn't get off to a faster start this season.
