  • The Broncos finally showed something positive from this wild offseason.  [Denver Post]
  • Tom Brandstater stole the show.  [BroncoTalk]
  • Brandstater definitely staked a claim on the “QB of the future” title for Denver, and, depending on who you ask, the present. [Colorado Springs Gazette]
  • Tommy B gives some love to his OL and D/ST for making his job easier.  (Video).  []
  • Post-game highlights. (Video).  []

  • Pat Bowlen lands at 16 in this NFL Owner Power Rankings piece.  Interesting point about Mike Shanahan‘s contract – wonder if his history with Oakland had anything to do with that?  [Yahoo! Sports]
  • Klis: McD could use a little advice from Rockies GM Jim Tracy, who “can execute a man hug and actually make it look cool.”  On a related note, is it just me, or is Klis circa 2009 about 10x better than Klis circa 2008?  [DPO]
  • A ton of delicious post-game quotes.  No dipping sauce necessary.  [BT]


  • Chiefs 9, Rams 17.  Tyler Thigpen looked awful.  []
  • Brodie Croyle did too.  [Kansas City Star]
  • Raiders 21 – Seahawks 31.  Oakland’s mailing it in for the preseason – will that continue through the regular?  []
  • Bengals 38 – Colts 7 in a batlle of the backups.  []
  • While we were all watching our Broncos, this other Bronco got punched! One wonders if a pre-game good sportsmanship handshake wouldn’t have prevented all this. Oh, never mind.  [Deadspin]

    Good Morning! I know it’d be a ton of work but I’d love to get my Daily Links here rather than elsewhere…

    Brandstater… Don’t get your panties in a bunch folks but it’s nice to see something with a little hope in it from that position, huh?! I’d like to see a bit more Orton (especially in a real game situation) but if turns out to be permanently mediocre …I say put the kid in (or Simms) so we can look forward to something more.

    Josh Barrett

    Those are the guy i’m rooting for, except I would like the to keep Lee Robinson, could be this year’s Wesley Woodyard if he gets the shot. I think Brandon Lloyd is the most deserving on this list. I like Chad Jackson but would they keep that many receivers? Especially if they do keep Brandon. Darius same thing…I believe he is more deserving of a spot than Lamont Jordan. But don’t see him making the team over Jordan. Would they keep 5 RB’s? I think Josh Barrett in too. Jarvis Moss might have played his way on the team last night. Tyler, maybe. I actually think Kory Lichtensteiger probably will be on the team b/c Hamilton and Weigmann are up there. Will see though.
