John Fox is the Rodney Dangerfield of coaches
Despite all the wins and changes in his coaching staff, Denver Broncos head coach John Fox still does not get the credit he deserves.
Merilatt: They still have to play the games
The Denver Broncos have Super Bowl expectations coming into this season, but there is no guarantee that they are a lock to walk away as champions.
Merilatt: Five questions for training camp
As training camp opens for the Broncos, there are five questions that need to be answered as the regular season approaches.
Merilatt: Losing Iguodala is a blessing
Some think losing Andre Iguodala to the Golden State Warriors will spell disaster for the Nuggets, but it’s really a blessing in disguise.
Merilatt: MacKinnon has to become a star
For the first time in the history of Colorado sports, a local team had the first-overall pick in the draft. If the Avs are to succeed, he has to pan out.
Merilatt: Remember that it’s just a game
Players know that the game belongs between the lines and nowhere else, but fans often lose sight of this common-sense reality.
Merilatt: Teams can’t turn back the clock
When looking at hiring new executives and coaches, teams should look at history and avoid hiring players from the teams’ glory days.
Merilatt: Kroenke made the right call on Ujiri

Knudson: College the best route for young ballplayers
The minor leagues are no place for an 18- or 19-year-old kid. College is a much better place to learn about the game, as well as life.
Merilatt: Sakic needs same tools as Elway to succeed
The situations inherited by the two Hall of Fame players are eerily similar. But Joe Sakic also needs a commitment from his owner to find success.
