  • The Denver Broncos will open up the regular season in its orange jerseys at home on Monday Night Football against the Raiders.  The team will bring out the orange again in Week 8 against Detroit.  [DenverBroncos.com]
  • Side note I’ve been lobbying for the team to switch back to orange for awhile, it’s exciting that they’re going to wear them twice this season and will be switching permanently starting in 2012, according to reports.
  • Dolphin fans weren’t too happy on Monday night when Miami quarterback Chad Henne was struggling.  In fact, the fans proceeded to boo Henne before chanting “We want Orton!” (Referring to Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton.)  Miami Head Coach Tony Sparano said he it “made me sick.”  [Sun-Sentinel]
  • You’ve heard it before:  “We’re going to be an aggressive, nasty defense this year.”  Andrew Mason of MaxDenver.com says this year, that actually may be true.  [MaxDenver]

  • Following several reports that Broncos second year quarterback Tim Tebow has fallen far behind Orton in Denver’s QB battle, Matt Bowen of NFP come to the defense of Tebow saying we shouldn’t be too hasty to give up on Tebow.  [National Football Post]

  • There are five NFL teams, Denver among them, that are interested in the services of New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora.  But as long as New York is asking for a 1st round draft pick, Umenyiora is staying put.  [NYDailyNews.com]

    Shouldn't a defense that was abysmal the past few years actually do something before they start giving themselves a name?

  • MrEast

    This is why people love training camp. Their hopes are extremely high.

  • VinceMarine

    East, I've never seen you this negative.  What gives?  Most of your posts haven't been the usual Mr. East.  Just curious?

    They didn't give themselves I name, I heard that nickname floating around and used it in the video because I am, like East said, excited because training camp is going on and there are new faces and new coaches.  What's wrong with being excited about your team heading into a season?

  • jdkchem

    The Post had something about naming the defense a week or so ago.

  • Mike

    Make the Orange Jerseys and White Pants the home colors
    White Jerseys and Orange Pants away colors 
    Blue jerseys and Blue Pants the alternate

    Then start Tebow and trade Orton for a ham sammich and a glass of milk.

    Kerry jacked his password, East is still in a lockout coma somewhere.
