Broncos Notes 12/11

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

The Broncos released safety Herana-Daze Jones and signed tight end Jeb Putzier. Putzier was a pretty sure handed receiver for Jake Plummer in the Broncos 2004-2005 seasons.

The Rocky Mountain News has a few words with the returning Jeb Putzier, and posts some injury updates:

Champ Bailey is practicing but will not run full speed until Saturday.

Linebacker D.J. Williams has returned to practice after missing 5 games with a sprained knee and will be evaluated under a watchful eye.

Running back Selvin Young has started to practice fully, but Mike Shanahan states Young’s conditioning or “football shape” is a concern after missing so many games.

Safety Marlon McCree is set to return. Receiver Brandon Stokley should play Sunday.

Spencer Larsen didn’t practice yesterday with a groin injury. Linebacker Mario Haggan practiced after a knee injury last Sunday.

RMN also points out Jay Cutler needs only 321 yards to reach 4,000 passing yards.

Yahoo Sports serves up an AP article focusing on the emergence of undrafted Linebacker Wesley Woodyard. Our own Horvil Tiki awarded Woodyard a Tiki Torch award for excellence in execution during last Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. has the transcripts of Jay Cutler and Mike Shanahan’s Wednesday press conference.

Broncos Notes 11/11 Bell Returns

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

After losing Ryan Torain, Andre Hall, Michael Pittman and since Selvin Young is banged up, running back Tatum Bell returns to the Broncos. Traded to the Lions by Denver as part of the Dre Bly trade, Bell was released by Detroit in early September. As a Bronco, Bell had great break-away open field speed but seemed to have trouble breaking tackles and fumbled in a few key situations. Denver also picks up free-agent running back Alex Haynes. Haynes is 5′ 10″ 230 lbs and played his first season in Carolina last year where he saw only a few actual carries. He was waived by Baltimore in August.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports Champ Bailey will test his groin injury today to get a feel for whether he can play against Atlanta this Sunday.

RMN has a write-up on kickers Jason Elam and Matt Prater and the transition from the Elam era in Denver.

Our own Horvil Tiki has some encouraging words for the Broncos backup linebackers in the comments section of Lindsay H. Jones latest article. (Denver Post)

We’re Back and Broncos Notes

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

As you may know the site was hacked and after a few days finally I am able to get the admin accounts back into the site and all seems well (so far) I appreciate, and I’m sure Horvil does as well, your patience and thanks to some of you for firing back at that guy “PP” whatever that stands for. Hopefully they are satisfied with the attack and will leave the site alone, we’re taking every measure to bolster the site’s security.

Now for some quick Broncos notes:

Three Broncos players were hit with fines from last Monday’s horrible event. The article mentions wide receiver Chad Jackson and safety Chris Crocker may be new additions to the Broncos roster. The Post’s Mike Klis puts forth what he believes are some Broncos keys to success for after the bye week. Last Monday was the first time in a long time I actually decided not to watch the second half of the Broncos game after 10 minutes or so in. Talking with Horvil about it, he thinks there should have been more fines which I’m sure will come up in his belated analysis.

RMN’s Bernie Lincicome wonders who the real Jay Cutler is due to Cutler’s recent less than stellar performances in light of his almost flawless start to the season.

Andrew Joynt writing for CBS4Denver seems optimistic that the Broncos will make the playoffs citing weak AFC west opponents.

It’s old news, and it’s painful, but just because we weren’t able to get to it, Boss Bailey and Patrick Ramsey out for the season while Champ Bailey will sit at least a month with a groin injury.

Frank Schwab of the Colorado Springs Gazette looks at the current injury situation in Denver and mentions Brandon Stokely looks to be recovering well after his concussion.

Lastly, John Elway lays the smack down on the Raiders organization claiming JaMarcus Russell needs to get out of Oakland if he wants to find any success in the NFL.

My Take on the 2008 Denver Broncos

Sunday, August 31st, 2008

It looks to be an exciting year for Denver fans as the 2008 Broncos seem like a team on a positive rebound from a 7-9 season that featured key injuries, a sputtering red zone offense and a new but ineffective defensive scheme in which the players did not look comfortable with from the get go.

Its true that winning games in the preseason doesn’t really matter (unless you’re Horvil), but the way the team is playing, the starters in particular, is certainly telling. The Broncos offense has looked impressive in its ability to move the chains and score often with Jay Cutler at the helm. In his third season, Cutler is really beginning to live up to his potential as one of the game’s elite quarterbacks. He is mobile, he can make every throw and is a “student of the game” according to Mike Shanahan.

The offensive line, while not the dominating force of the late 90’s Broncos, looks solid and will improve with rookies Ryan Clady and Ryan Harris who is basically a rookie since he was injured last year. Ben Hamilton seems to be fine after his awful concussion last year and center Tom Nalen… well… while I wish Nalen, being the perennial Pro Bowler he is, I wish he could contribute as much as possible this year, but I feel Casey Wiegman may end up being one of the most necessary free agent pickups in the offseason next to Marlon McCree and Boss Bailey. Going into this preseason, I expected Clady to be where he is, good enough to start but not great, not yet at least so no surprise there but Ryan Harris really caught me by surprise. I remember the Broncos were high on him last year and viewing him in the preaseason, he’s big and athletic and I believe Shanahan’s claim that Clady and Harris will be a very good pair of tackles for years to come.
