Well, we are through two games in preseason and there are still big decisions to be made on the 53 man roster. Another is who the starting QB will be at the start of the season. I say that, because it is obvious that Paxton is only being held back by knowledge of the Offensive System. He probably will start at some time this year, the only question is when. I surely hope Kubiack gives him time to play with the #1 players this week against the Rams. Sieman looked good except for the interception, but Kubiack accepted that his playcall was not the best at that time. So hopefully he takes the opportunity and Sanchez gets a chance to to atone for those fumbles last week, because one of the two will likely start against the Panthers in a nationally televised game. Kubiack said he will make the decision next week, and that Paxton is still in the mix yet. So for better or worst, we will know who it is within a few days.
Now, my first reaction after I saw the final score was where was the Defense that dominated the mutual practices leading up to the game. Then realized we were still missing several key players and the starters didnt play very long in the 2nd game. DeMarcus Ware and Aqid Talid will return this week and will play in that game. So we will get a better sense of the quality of play by them. The players have been saying they can be even better than last year and I definitely think that it is possible. They are further ahead of where they are compared to last year, so I’m definitely interested in watching them play in
the regular season, and that first game is just 17 days down the road. And I think we found Todd Davis’s backup in Zaire Anderson who has really looked great, including two crushing hits he made in thd 49er game. And with the signing of Henry Melton, he will be a solid veteran influance on the D-Line and be a solid rotational player in that group. He is another example of Why we Tust in John Elway. He had seldom made a mistake with his free agent signings.
So we should look forward to an improved Offense compared to last year’s with a great Defense that can go a long way in helping win games too. Two players on Offense have been standing out with their play in camp and the preseason games. Vernon Green has been turning into a great TE reciever and Jason Taylor has been doing likewise in the WR group. Go, Go Broncos and play much better this week and really give us a great view of the kind of team we will have this year. Broncos Country is squarely behind you and we are United in Orange!!!
