Kicking off a new thread and a new year!
May Peyton stay healthy and survive the Pittsburgh Steelers. Our new
schedule is rough indeed, and the NFL isn't cutting Peyton any slack.
Boy do I have high hopes for the season. Everything I've heard out of camp so far has been positive. My only concern right now is Orlando Franklin’s concussion. I'm going to watch the scrimmage at Mile High on Saturday, which is always fun. If I see anything of note I’ll let you guys know.
I think Stan put it best, “Go America, Go Broncos.”
The stadium practice was fun, over 41,000 people showed up and I was with my young kids so it was tough to really watch the practice. The only thing that I saw that sort of worries me is that our fans go nuts once Peyton starts to audible. Hopefully the folks at the regular season games get a clue. Go Broncos!
11 of 17 on 3rd down conversions? AUGH! 36 seconds of possession in the 3rd quarter?
Still, we won 'cause of Peyton and Porter. How did I miss the off-season trade for Porter?
1st game this season against the best defense in football and we won.
Ben was hitting everything too.
Man, what an opener!
At any rate it was a great game. I loved when Manning stepped up to the line called a play and then Troy runs up to the line. So Manning calls another play. So Troy steps out...but then he steps back in so Mannings like screw this and calls a time out.
Our run defense was night/day compared to last year.
Lots of positives. Tamme played a great game. Only one or two dropped balls. The only downside was defending 3rd down, but we put them into a lot of 3rd and long situations.
I think we'll see a lot more hurry up in the future....
yeah, it was Ty Warren, one of our premier tackles, not Derek Wolfe, who sprained his elbow and left early in the first half. So, I think it evens out in terms of injuries on both sides. Maybe we would have scored a few less points, but then, maybe they wouldn't have made so many first downs....
Correction: looks like Ty is done with a torn triceps again. That's going to hurt our pass rush.

Nice to blow out a bad team, but the Raiders have had a tendency to run
all over us and make us look bad in past years. This time? NOT.
Next up are the Patriots in New England. UGH. Who thought up this
schedule? I don't think we'll be blown out, but winning is a long shot.
We'll need our best game ever on defense just to keep it close.
Great comeback! Could barely stand to watch the first half. But the team came together, which is a BIG deal.
Now we are at 3-3, tied for 1st in the division, with the toughest part of our schedule behind us, and a bye week to work out the kinks and work on lessons learned.
So, we absolutely dominated the Saints. I wasn't sure how our defense would play
against them, but they ended up playing lights out. Nice.
Still another fumble lost in the 1st quarter leading to 7 points though. I have to
grumble about something....
Next up Cincy in Cincinnati!
Schedule starts to soften up now. I’m excited to see how Champ will match up with AJ Green Sunday.
I can't believe how effective Peyton's audibles are. I think we beat the Saints ten or so times with the same bubble screen play that DT seems to take for 20+ yards each time.
Fun parady song of the week:
