I’m changing this up again, after over a year. No more one-sentence quick hits of about 8 or 9 links long. Instead, 3-4 paragraphs discussing only the good news items of the day, then maybe a few quick links afterward. Just kicking the tires on this; let me know what you think.

  • Jay Cutler picked the Cowboys apart during a two-minute drill Thursday afternoon. This tells me two things – Cutler’s growing into the elite quarterback that most hope he will become, and the offensive line handled their business. Ryan Clady, in particular, has had his hands full against Cowboys pass rusher DeMarcus Ware. The RMN has a nice breakdown of their matchups here. For the record, Cutler was 9 of 10 on the drill, with the only incompletion being a dropped pass by Brandon Marshall. Anyone not encouraged by this needs to check themselves.
  • Speaking of the offense, the playcalling will be handled a little differently this year – no longer just from the headset of Head Coach Mike Shanahan. Offensive coaches Jeremy Bates (passing game coordinator), Rick Dennison (running game coordinator), and Jedd Fisch (WR coach) will do a play-by-committee approach with Bates giving Cutler the signals. Dennison and Bates will obviously have more say in their respective areas, running vs. passing.
  • Ryan Torain discusses his surgery and rehab thus far in his latest blog post.  For now, he’s resting, but next week Greek will start the rehab and treatment process with Torain. Getting him back for the second half of the season could be a huge boost.
  • D.J. Williams is happy to be back on the weak side.  He says his athleticism and vision make him a perfect fit for Will, and it’s hard to disagree.  He moves inside during nickel packages, showing his versatility.  I really, REALLY hope the Broncos work on a contract extension for him sooner rather than later.


Yesterday’s winnder: Arden – “…and then Al Davis makes all the coaches go like this when he enters and exits the room…” Honorable mention: JD, Herc.

Your wittiest, most cleverest captions in the comments…

  • flbronc

    See, when i get out of the pool, i shake my head like this. Man do the chicks dig it.

  • Trent

    I don’t need a helmet to jack your ass up. What you don’t believe me? Bring it on.

  • E. Halsey Miles

    Both: “Wondertwin powers, ACTIVATE!”
    Webster: “Form of: A helmetless behemoth!”
    Doom: “Shape of: A taser!”

  • Truman

    One suggestion: when you post the caption winner, put the corresponding photo above it. Then post the new photo elsewhere.

    Couple of comments before I get to my captions:
    Have you read the comments on the first article? All those cowboy fans talking about their defense? “Oh it’s only preseason, practise and a vanilla defensive scheme” – that sounds just what we were saying last year. They’re one big loss from signing Simeon Rice.

    Second comment – Kyle, I was wondering if you’d considered spinning the “Captions” off into their own post?

  • mikebirty

    Nate: “Bring me the helmet of Alfredo Garcia!”

  • Boisebroncoguy

    That’s the way…uh-huh..uh-huh…I like it….uh-huh…uh-huh…

  • mikebirty

    Nate: “Tell our enemies that they may take Jay’s sugar, they may take our Marshall but they’ll never take our freedom!”

  • dstall

    May the real predator please stand up!

  • Arden

  • Linmoo

    Whoa! My helmet STINKS!

  • Jonathan Douglas

    I nominate Herc’s comment from a post about the ‘non-fight’ during practice with Dallas:
    “You do not screw with Nate Websters helmet. You just don’t do it. That thing is a sentient being. It will kill you and everyone you care about.”

    LMAO last night when I read that…

  • SivNiz

    “Don’t tase me bro!”

  • Pat

    Tell Flozell Adams the next time he needs a helmet to kill someone he can borrow mine. I hope he uses it on Jessica Simpson

  • HogBlog

    “Oh hell to the NO! It’s all natural…check this s*** out!

  • Tyson

    Oh, God… Is it on me? Oh, Go… I saw a booger fly right through my face mask! Help me, Doom… Time out!

  • daveb

    I’m too sexy for my hat, too sexy for my hat, so sexy!

  • Leo

    The best caption would be… ” What the hell.. Is this some kind of bad dream??? How did I get into a Denver Broncos Jersey?”… Or “Wait a minute! We’re getting our asses handed to us by cheesheads!!!”
