Broncos-Bears recap

Ok, I know it wasn't what we wanted. we had a lot of injuries. Hillis, Royal, Gaffney, Kuper Orton, and a few other. but from what I heard, with the exception of Gaffney, their all ok.

Lets start with defense. we have improved a lot. we're getting pressure on the quarterback and stopping the run. We held Forte, one of the premier backs in the league, to just barely over 2 yards per carry. The problems I see with our defense are we can't cover tight ends and runningbacks who come to the flat for a pass. I know Olsen made some great catches, but we could've had a lot better coverage on him. We also need turnovers. I don't think our starting D has picked off a pass yet. Overall, I give our defense a C. that's a good grade considering last year we were an F. We are an average defense. better than last year but still room for improvement.

Special Teams. Why do Denver punters always think they can punt to Devin Hester? I thought McDaniels was smart enough to know to not punt to Devin Hester. If I was a special teams coordinator, that would be my number one rule. don't kick it within a 20 yard radius of Devin Hester. overall, we get a D. that Hester reurn killed us but Kern placed it inside the 5 a few times. that's what kept me from giving them an F

Now time for the Offense. Orton looked good until the injury. keep in mind that his two most dangerous weapons were gone in Marshall and Moreno. Today showed how important they are in order for our Offense to succeed. Once we get Marshall and Moreno on the field, our offense will look good. Hillis looked good, as always. love how versatile he is. If he's healthy our offense is a lot better. penalties is what killed our O. we were put in 3rd and long to many times. limit mistakes and we will improve.

  1. good recap Chris, but how much clearer can it get. DONT PUNT TO DEVIN HESTER, DONT PUNT TO DEVIN HESTER, DONT PUNT TO DEVIN HESTER. Please DONT PUNT TO DEVIN HESTER. PLEASE. Also penalties crippled us.

  2. who do we play in our last preseason game?

    ReplyDelete
  3. I'd give the special teams a D too. I'd give colquitt an A+. He was exceptional last night. Kern was okay. Look at the bright side, at least we tackled Hester this time. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  11. my #1 goal is to improve my #2 back without giving up Forte, i would take Ronnie Brown or Steven jackson.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Why exactly do you want to upgrade your 2 back? Thomas Jones is pretty good.

    ReplyDelete
  13. putting plenty of thought into it, ha.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hey boys. What was up with the chirp chirp, florio? Too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  15. do you really think Jones is pretty good because all the "experts" say he is going to have a bad year. OK, well here is a question, who do u think in your honest opinion has the better FF team, me or chris? And whats my weakness then in my FF team?

    ReplyDelete
  16. hey princess, trying to improve my FF team, it gets addicting.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think your backs are better than Chris's.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Your teams look pretty evenly matched.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Your bench is way better than chris's

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yeah I can see you're having some fun with FF... boring me to tears but as long as you're having fun with it, don't let me be the party pooper! haha

    ReplyDelete
  21. let me put it this way, if u could own one of our teams which one would it be? And weres my weakness on my team?

    ReplyDelete

  26. Hey guys I am going on a work conference for a few days so I won't be around and will probably miss this weeks game. I will be back though catch you later.

  27. ------=====BREAKING NEWS=====--------
    Kyle Orton has a Open dislocation of his right index finger. The bone was dislocated which sliced through his finger from the outside causing it bleed. He is doubtful for week 1.

    This means that the roster of opening-day rookie starting quarterbacks could include not only Mark Sanchez and Matthew Stafford, but also our very own sixth-round pick Tom Brandstater. (Unless Ingle Martin Makes a push. LOL LOL LOL make it stop!)

    As far as I know, this will be the first time 3 rookie QBs will start the first game of the season. I also believe this is the first 6th round rookie QB to start his first game.

    Stars arise from adversity and injury. Just look at Tom Brady.

    On the bright side, Tom will be playing against a sub-par team in the Bengals and maybe even the Browns in week two. Who knows?

    We should encourage Tom as he is probably scared/excited/freaked out at this opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  28. starting QB: injured
    starting RB: injured
    starting WR: suspended

    so who do we have to lead our team to a win against cininatti, a sixth round rookie quarterback, a running back with 3 major knee surgeries. Not looking to good.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Jeb Putzier, punter Colquitt, CJ Jones, and center Scheulter were cut today.

    ReplyDelete
  30. its ok, they were a long shot to make the team anyway. wish them all well from here.

    ReplyDelete
  31. i thought Colquitt the punter did pretty good in preseason, but we can only keep one punter. And we couldnt keep 4 TE, Putzier had to go even thuogh he had a liddle bit left in the tank

    ReplyDelete
  32. Mcdenver tried to claim O Conell off waivers but Detroit got him instead

    ReplyDelete
  33. so when exactly does the roster has to be cut to 53 players?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Also Moreno is back on the field. He is wearing a no contact jersy, and will most likely will not play agaisnt the Cardinals, but is suppose to be ready by week 1.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This was on DP


    Broncos coach Josh McDaniels squashed rumors today that the team is looking to trade suspended wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

    "There is no discussions whatsoever taking place between Denver Broncos and any team in the National Football League regarding Brandon Marshall," McDaniels said. "We're looking forward to having Brandon back on the 6th of September and starting our (season-opening) preparation with him."

    Marshall, who caught 206 passes over the past two seasons and was selected to last year's Pro Bowl, was suspended Friday for conduct detrimental to the team. His suspension goes through the end of the preseason. The suspension is scheduled to be lifted Sept. 6.

    There have been reports today that the New York Jets are interested in obtaining Marshall.

  46. #80 you are to funny. You come on here more now than I do and you probably have twice the HW as me. I only have one class I'm dealing with now and its a handful. It should actually be pretty easy but it takes all my brain power! haha

    And I should have an article to put up sometime soon but that is alot of work as well. Its so much info I'm not sure where to begin. I'll try to get it up by this weekend but no promises.

    Hope everyone is doing alright.

    ReplyDelete
  47. hey princess, yeah i have a bit of HW, and on top of that i have football practice, but a get through it. I have like 7 classes.

    ReplyDelete
  48. hey everyone. Im kinda upset right now. :((((((((((

    ReplyDelete
  49. What's wrong florio? Gonna make me sad. :(

    I used to have 8 classes in high school, divided up into 2 days (4 on each day) and then I had soccer practice every spring. All that put together was never as much work as this one class is right now. Insane, right? lol

    ReplyDelete
  50. i have 7 classes plus lunch at school everyday, but its kinda cool because i really only have 5 classes. My 1 period is sports team, which is with my football coach and 2 peroid is weight lifting with my football coach, so my first 2 periods is football, and then i have my 5 regular classes, english, history, math, science, and spanish. And whats the matter Florio?

    ReplyDelete
  51. dont u wish u were in highschool princess. :P

    ReplyDelete
  52. My team plays its second varsity game tomorrow :) , i will have to miss the Broncos game. :( Did u here the Chupacabra has been found in Texas?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Actually sometimes I do miss high school but I don't miss all the drama caused by teenagers, haha. I had to end alot of friendships based on drama but some of my classes were really fun to have. My senior year I took psychology... so much fun!! One day all we had to do to earn an A on one project was show up to class in our PJs with a pillow or blanket... we went to the stinky wrestling room where they have practice (that was the not so fun part) and all we had to do was see if we could fall asleep after having been awake for a few hours. It related to the subject and it was fun. None of us could fall asleep so we all just giggled at how bad the wrestling room smelled. Too funny! Ah, yes... high school was fun.

    ReplyDelete
  54. LOL yeah I heard they may have found it... who knows if they really did. Good luck in your game. And look on the bright side, at least you're not missing a regular season game. haha counts for something, right?

    ReplyDelete
  55. My high school is the best and completley brand new. Its the biggest HS in NM now.

    ReplyDelete
  56. thanks, and yeah im glad its not a regular season game. My team is right now undefeated! 1-0 We should beat the team were playing tomorrow, there not that good, there Gallup. (do u know were that is?)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Nope, have no clue where that is and in fact, never heard of it. haha Sup with that... didn't like my psychology story?? hmmmm lol

    ReplyDelete
  66. I thnik our secondary is much improved. I think Andre Goodman is going to have a sectacular year, just like Champ. i think we have 2 shut down corners now. Dawkins is such a improvement and Hill is a solid veteran.

    ReplyDelete
  67. 80,
    I live off of I-25 and Montgomery. I am doing a fantasy football draft on saturday with people who live out here. 50 dollar buy in. 300 goes to 1st place, 150 to 2nd. We need 2 more players. You could join if you want.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Got that right 80. Our defense improved greatly this whole offseason. That side of the ball should be a whole new story than it was last year. I love what I've seen so far from our defense... we just need to get a good turnover rate going. And I am so excited for Dawkins to razz on the QBs this season. Gonna be great!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hey guys. sorry I've been gone. pool party yesterday, my friend moved back from Tennesse today and the Fair is toorrow so won't be on very much.

    The Denver Broncos would want New York Jets linebacker David Harris in any trade scenario for wide receiver Brandon Marshall, two NFL sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Wednesday.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Night 80. Catch ya later. Yeah this article is a doozy too. Think it would be best for me to split it in half cuz it consists of too much info to put into one long article. Heck, it would be so long, not sure I'd even read it (even if it is about our Broncos) haha. I'm writing about the Broncos history, 50th anniversary. Thinking about making the first half of the article about our history till Elway comes into the picture and then the 2nd half will be Elway to now. Sound good?

    ReplyDelete
  93. Dunno Doc... he's not talking. Not really any of our business but he's got me worried. Said he was really upset but don't know why.

    ReplyDelete
  94. is Jazzy still here?

    has anyone heard from Mr.Broncofan?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Yeah Frizzy's been popping in and out of here. As for mrbroncofan... don't know. He might have quit the site, who knows.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Well. As most of you know, I'm on a high school team. I love the sport of football more than anything else. I'm an avid fan of the broncos, I work with Football plays for a job, I coach a youth team and now, I play Highscool ball.

    In the 8th grade, (my first year of tackle) I only played two weeks (practice only, no games) When I got a concussion and whip lash and was then unable to play a game. Since then I've had neck problems and have been unable to play. In the last six months, I've been cleared to play. So I found a team, for my last year of eligability, My senior year.

    I started practicing last tuesday, and i was so happy i had the chance to play. But then last wednesday I injured my hip. I thought it was just sore and i shook it off. I continued to practice, even though i had a limp. I wasn't able to play to my best ability and played poorly. I tried to stay tough and show that I had guts, by still practicing. I thought i was just sore and nothing serious happened.

    Yesterday, was running a drill. I was the ball carrier and sprinted through a hole, when i heard a pop in my hip. I fell down in pain. I couldn't move for a good five minutes and finally a golf cart had to pick me up. So I went to the Doc today. The news wasn't great. The Doc said I tore a hip tendon completely off. He said is unlikely that I'll be able to play this year. So my last season, I'll be on the sidelines.

    sorry its so long. :(

    ReplyDelete
  97. I am still here, but i will be going to bed pretty soon. I have a meeting to be at @530AM tomorrow morning. So I have to get up @445 just to have time to make my lunch for work.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Wow, florio,
    Thats terrible, That was hard to read! sounds REALLY painful bud, I really hope you can heal quickly. I will be praying for you for sure. That has to be a major disappointment! Darn it, ok well, the wife is calling me to go to bed. So I am out for tonight. Stay strong Florio.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Wow, so sorry to hear about that florio. That's a bummer you'll miss out on your senior year. If that does require surgery, I hope it goes well. I know its tough but look at the bright side, at least you'll still be able to do your job doing the football plays, right? God bless ya man. Hang in there.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Wow. I can't believe this is happening to me.....again.

    ReplyDelete
  103. good night all,

    and just for the record, i have now gone three weeks without any energy drinks. Miracles do happen!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I don't even know what to say really florio, I never tore anything let alone break a bone. But I had some friends go through stuff like that and it was bad. Stay strong. Hope the doctor visit tomorrow goes well though. My prayers are with you.

    You're too funny Jazzy.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Can't even walk?? Wow, worse than I thought. All I can say is I'm sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I'm a 98 year old man in a 17 year olds body.

    ReplyDelete
  107. sorry Florio, princess, I've never broken a bone either. I played 5 years of football and only missed one game. I injured my groin at the very last practice of the season so I missed the last game. the groin kept me out for about a month so I was lucky it didn't happen earlier in the season. All I can tell you Florio is drink some milk bud. hope you get good news at the doctor tomorrow

    ReplyDelete
  108. Hopefully the news will be good.

    ReplyDelete
  109. is it already for sure that you can't play at all during the season?

    ReplyDelete
  110. gotta get some sleep. Talt to you later.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I'm here, still busy writing this article. Lucky I have some down time from HW to do this!!

    Well in that case, I hope you do get a miracle. You're deserving of it. Get plenty of rest. Everything is gonna be alright. Night florio.
