With Kyle and Josh at Dove Valley (and currently eating dinner), I’m maintaining the head quarters and manning the thirty-three plus flat screens we have here at BroncoTalk Blog Central (East has a thing for the Oxygen Network and JKJ’s obsessed with Lifetime, do not ask!)… They’ve been busy.
Here’s what we’ve learned so far:
- Kyle Orton is not guaranteed the starting position at quarterback.
- Matter of fact none of the Denver Broncos are guaranteed starting spots.
- Ryan Torain came out bucking, stealing the spotlight amongst the overly talented running back stable.
- Brandon Marshall blew everyone’s minds.
- There are no clear answers as to whether Denver’s defensive line has improved.
- Both Jarvis Moss and Elvis Dumervil lined up (and only) at outside linebacker today.
Things you may not have known after the break…
Things you may not have known:
- LaMont Jordan looked good too!
- Chad OchoCinco will uStream his game planning against Champ Bailey tomorrow.
- Both Mike Shanahan and Bob Slowick will be visiting the Pittsburgh Steelers tomorrow.
- Jay Cutler jerseys are on sale in the Broncos store for $19.99.
- Former Broncos tight end Nate Jackson called Josh McDaniels, “Josh McDouche”.
- Everything that you’re worried about, stop. It’s the McDaniel’s Era and you would be hard pressed to find a person who had a bad thing to say about practice today.
- As I said on the Broncos Nation podcast on Monday, Jabar Gaffney could mess around and pass Brandon Marshall on the depth chart (or at least importance chart).
- The Broncos closed out practice with music, including Ice Cube’s- Check Yourself, which features the lyric, “… check yourself, before you wreck yourself…” prominently in the chorus. Wonder if one-five was paying attention?
Things I’m going to go ahead and just guess:
- Correll Buckhalter will emerge as the lead running back, especially if Knowshon Moreno talks take longer.
- Robert Ayers will be the most hyped person coming out of training camp, the man has the entire defense on his shoulders more-so than even Champ Bailey does.
- Bailey failing his physical is most likely McDaniels giving the man a break.
- Peyton Hillis will fit in interestingly somewhere on the offense.
- The Broncos will be once again top five offensively in the NFL.
What do you think Nation? Off my rocker? Yeah, but I’m not often wrong. Looking forward to the rest of camp and wishing everyone a healthy one!
