Not a single pass from the #Broncos QBs have short-hopped a receiver. #NFL

Peyton Manning to Virgil Green against first team D. would have been a huge gain in real action.

Peyton Manning has been giving pointers to Caleb Hanne on the side for about 5 minutes now

Manning to Joel Dreesen. Ball has a zing to it and hits Dreesen right in the hands the second he turns his head. Timing is flawless.


Manning's cadence is very distinctive, very demanding. His release, spiral are what dreams are made of. Tebow is definitely not here, folks


Speaking of lean tight ends. Look at Joel Dreesen. Dude is ripped

Seems a rip on Tebow in there. This thread should blow up. If anyone thinks we downgraded by having Manning here really does need to get their head examined. Tebow was fun but having Manning as our QB is going to be special. John Elway kind of special.

I know that I'm stating the obvious, but I know Manning is not going to keep the ball like Tebow for the zone-read option like in this pic!

Good to see Knowshon out there taking hand-offs from Manning.

I hope in this offense he gets some opportunities to get into open field, I know a lot of people here are down on him, but I think he could be great in a situational role instead of pounding it between the tackles unless we really go the Manning way and only feature one RB per possession.

Manning is Awesome. Just finished off field media session. Was cracking jokes, answering questions sincerely, talking about preparation.

I'm absolutely blown away by Manning today. The way he carries himself, his passing ability, his vocal demand, his confidence, all of it

http://twitter.com/#!/brandonspano

Manning was fantastic today. He ran the practice top to bottom. He's incredibly vocal and clearly in charge. It's his team on day one.

It honestly amazes me that manning is really here. He had a terrific first day. He threw the ball super duper

Says the offense feels different than indy. On the field reps are the best. Nothing like it

The efficiency and impressive nature of the practice so early in Manning's Denver tenure was dismissed out of hand by Manning himself, reportedly. When asked about the efficient, up-tempo practice, Manning answered "Well the Chiefs have more talent, so this is really all for naught. I should have signed with them. I will regret my decision forever the first time my head explodes when Eric Berry looks at it in KcStud's wet dream this weekend." Demarius Thomas and Eric Decker agreed. "We know we can't play football. KCStud proved it in his bleacher report slide show. We are contemplating early retirement."

Look at the outs he's throwing. Velocity looks to be pretty damn good.

I also love the tempo Manning is practicing at (already). He's clearly trying to work that hurry-up mentality into the offense in general. A receiver catches a ball, and *bam* they're already on to the next play.

You could see Manning was visibly frustrated earlier in the video when Stokley kind of jogged back to the line of scrimmage.

With that style of offense, we should never lose at home. We have the weapons and most of them are young and full of energy. We're going to sap defenses of their will to fight at Mile High:)

I was out at Dove Valley for the kickoff of the Manning era here in Denver. Over 60 media people attended this OTA which had a very training camp like feel. John Fox and Peyton Manning spoke to the media after practice. Here's what I scratched in my notebook today. Make sure to follow me on Twitter for more updates: http://twitter.com/cecillammey

Practice notes:

Brock Osweiler’s footwork looked better today. In rookie minicamps he threw flatfooted, but today he showed some bounce in his step.

Knowshon Moreno had great burst in drills. However, rarely saw him carry the ball in team drills. Instead, Moreno was off to the side running sprints by himself.

I liked the way Ronnie Hillman looked in the ball today. Showed good concentration and caught every pass thrown at him. Lower body looks strong.

Peyton Manning showed immediate leadership and command of the huddle. It wasn’t long before he was yelling at his new teammates to “get back to the same spot” or “get in the same alignment!” His teammates responded positively to the leadership as his words command a lot of respect.

Adam Weber threw with more zip today than Caleb Hanie.

Too often Hanie was trying to aim throws and his motion was slower and more deliberate than the other QBs. His passes also tended to float a little more than Weber, Osweiler, or Manning.

Eric Decker looked energized.

Mark Dell dropped a pass early in practice from Manning and it didn’t go over well with the veteran QB. Expectations so much different with Manning leading the way. All his passes were put on the mark, the catches should be much easier than they were with Tebow spraying all over the field.

Brandon Stokely of course showed great chemistry with Manning.

Joel Dreesen made some nice plays where he had to stretch out to catch Manning passes.

Demaryius Thomas looked completely focused. Showed good hands, route adjustment, and sideline awareness. He also got better separation than Decker did against coverage.

Joe Mays was able to bat a pass away over the middle intended for Dreesen.

Nate Irving almost had an interception on an out route thrown by Caleb Hanie.

Brock Osweiler did a good job of directing traffic on a pass play. Motioned to Gerell Robinson to cut inside then hit him in stride for a 15-yd gain.
D’Andre Goodwin dropped a beautifully thrown deep pass from Osweiler.

Eric Decker caught a low and away pass from Manning. Had to slide on his backside to gather in the catch.

Manning got in trouble once because of coverage, moved around then found Demaryius Thomas open. Interesting to note Decker was open as well, but he went to DT.

Virgil Green had a nice catch and run to show off his athleticism and run after the catch skills.

Caleb Hanie threw a “parking lot” throw. Was way out of bounds, worst throw of the day.

Jeremiah Johnson had a big carry where he bounced outside and turned on the speed. Showed good quickness, clean cuts, and acceleration.

Mark Dell made a nice high catch in the middle of the field. Took a hit after the catch. Caleb Hanie hung him out to dry on that one.

Osweiler was late with a throw, ended up getting tipped by Duke Ihenacho.

Broncos had two false starts in a row late in team drills. Manning was not happy with RT Orlando Franklin, then RG Manny Ramirez.

Champ Bailey was able to tip away a pass from Manning intended for Eric Decker. Manning double clutched the ball, waiting for Decker to separate, then tried to fit it in anyway.

Willis McGahee looked very large compared to the other RBs in camp.

Osweiler looked good throwing on the run. Rolled right and hit Mark Dell on the sideline.

Tracy Porter came to play. He was all over the field, knocking away passes, making (would be) tackles, and stayed with receivers in stride.

Jason Hill made some nice plays today. Had a grab deep where he was able to show off his long speed.

Mario Fannin looked swift again. Coming back from his knee injury it will be interesting to see if he makes the team. Great size/speed combination.

Key to a top ten defense this year is Corner depth. We havn't seen a guy take advantage of being targeted more frequently since D-Will. After Williams died (RIP) Mike tried to find a guy to replace him in Dre Bly, and failed. McDaniels brought over a solid player in Andre Goodman, but he was past his prime (his peak was in 08' with the Dolphins). I hope this works out, and Porter shows the orginization that hes the guy. This is the first minicamp practice, so it means nothing, but I can't help but long for this scenario to come to fruition. Personally I don't care if Manning gets another ring, I want to see Champ get his. Champ Bailey stuck with the Broncos through the worst run in franchise history, and made it known that he was going to be a Bronco for life. If the Broncos have the privillage of hoisting the Lombardi, Pat better make "this one for Champ". The legend in Denver right now is 24, Manning is just a piece of the puzzle thats going to help bring glory to a man who's truly earned it. With the Broncos pass rushing prowess, and a legit corner opposite Champ this could be a special defense. Lets hope this works out, and 24 gets his due.

We've seen two Peyton Manning practices now and today wasn't his best. In his first 11-on-11 series, he was INT by S Mike Adams on deep out.

On second 11-on-11 drive, Manning threw incomplete on only pass in otherwise run series.

In his tghird, 11 on 11, a 2-minute drill, Manning's first pass went right into bread basket of MLB Joe Mays, who dropped it.

A couple dozen law enforcement members out watching practice today. You know, just in case Travis Henry rejoins the team.

For those asking, no official start date for training camp. But I would circle July 27th on your calendars.

Have to assume Decker is out there just to fair catch the ball. It would be silly and stupid to have him return punts.

Working at punt returner (a hugely underrated position): Eric Page, Ronnie Hillman, Eric Decker and Syd'Quan

Andre Caldwell had a sweet grab on a deep ball. Mike Adams picked off Peyton Freaking Manning. JD Walton had some nice snaps

Cecil Lammey's observations from today's OTA's (http://forums.footballguys.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=642971).

Judging by the reactions from Lammey, DMac, Vic Lombardi, and Mike Klis...after listening to all the interviews, and looking at all the twitter feeds, here's some observations of my own.

1. Peyton Manning - May still only be about 80%. Not very accurate on long throws. It will be interesting to see how he rebounds on June 4th (next Monday).
2. Ronnie Hillman - Manning and Studesville are focusing on getting Hillman up to speed. It could only be a matter of time before he becomes the feature back.
3. Mike Adams - Picked off a long bomb from Manning to Dreessen. Looking like a good FA pickup so far.
4. J.D. Walton - "Had some good snaps" today, according to one twitter account. I thought Blake would beat him out...but now, not so sure.
5. Eric Decker - Having problems getting separation. This is a major problem for this Offense. If it were me, I would start giving 1st team snaps to Caldwell on the outside. Had to stay after practice to work on his game. Decker does not seem to be able to consistently get open on the outside, which is not a new problem for him. In my opinion, Decker would be better in the slot. Had a pass broken up by Champ last week, and 2 passes broken up by Porter today.
6. Demaryius Thomas - So far so good. Getting good separation, and catching with his hands.
7. Jacob Tamme - Along with DT, the Broncos two best receiving targets so far.
8. Joel Dreessen - Had to stay after practice to try to get on the same page with Manning. He is running long routes down the middle of the field, as I expected.
9. Orlando Franklin - Looks to be the starting RT. I thought Harris might have a shot, but I don't think so anymore.
10. FB - I didn't see any pics of Gronkowski (he is listed as 1st team), but I saw Manning handing off out of the I-formation (with Sylvester). This may indicate that the Broncos won't be running the Manning no-huddle. After seeing the practice footage with some 2 back sets, I think the Broncos may try to emulate a combination of the NFL's top Offenses (Colts, Green Bay, New Orleans). The Broncos only ran a no-huddle Offense one time today...clearly evidence of McCoy's stamp, which may be why Manning's timing was off.

To me, it seems Decker is having serious difficulties getting open and catching the ball, no matter what CB (Champ or Porter) he lines up against on the outside. I noted this after the last OTA, and it appears nothing has changed.

He's still shaking off the rust.

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/7990126/peyton-manning-denver-broncos-wrs-struggle-long-layoff

Peyton Manning and Eric Decker stayed late after a sloppy practice Wednesday, working an extra 15 minutes after they appeared to have several miscommunications during the workout.

The rust showed as the Broncos returned from a long Memorial Day weekend and began their second week of organized team activities.

http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_20746728/broncos-passing-game-out-sync-after-holiday-break

There have been times, in the football jet wash that has followed Peyton Manning into the Broncos' offensive huddle, when Manning has said there will be a learning curve and there is plenty of work to be done. And that, every once in a while, there would be a day or two like Wednesday.

"(Wednesday) left a little bit to be desired, but I'm sure we'll get back in the flow of it," Broncos coach John Fox said.


https://twitter.com/#!/JosinaAnderson

Passes getting a little longer. Deeper to Matthew Willis this time on a 35 to 40 yard strike. Smidge overthrown. Not bad at all. Moving on.

Manning and Thomas can't connect on about a 30y strike. Still working on timing. Pass was there for the most part.

Manning picked off by Champ after some miscommunication to the WR. Followed that with a batted ball, and then an overthrow to Dreessen.

Manning has not been impressive. He's still going through rehab, focusing on short throws. Today, he threw some deep passes and the accuracy needs some work.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/rapid-reports/post/19257820

QB Peyton Manning went 1-of-5 on the deep passes; his completion was to WR Brandon Stokley, who beat triple coverage for a diving catch in a two-minute drill period. "When you throw five deep balls and complete one of them, that's actually a great thing," Manning said.

He looks like an average starting QB during OTAs, mixing some good throws with some bad throws. I can't say he is puting on a clinic or showing elite accuracy in practice.

These are frigging OTAs, no doubt, so there is no need to worry. I don't think we should question Decker's ability yet, simply because Manning himself is still trying to find a rhythm. Manning is still rusty with his new team.

I want to know if the Broncos will finally have a special QB that can produce 30+ TDs and 4000+ yards, and that's what I expect from a QB with Manning's salary. The Broncos are not paying all that money to have another game manager like Kyle Orton.

Yes, it is early and there is plenty of time left. Hopefully, Manning will improve each month and beat the hell out of everybody when the season starts.

Why don't we NOT blame anyone at this point ... Its 'Practice' and very early in the offseason game at that ... New QB, new system, new teammate etc etc.

Relax, even Manning shook his head and couldn't believe he was getting grilled by the press on dropped passes in an early June OTA for crying out loud!

Greg Orton was making some nice catches today, including one deep pass over the shoulder early in practice. he also had one high pass he snared in between two defenders. Osweiler was a little off on that throw. He's been a "square in" guy since his days at Purdue, but did a nice job of high pointing passes today

I think this kid could be one of the sleepers of the upcoming camp.

Brandon Stokley interview on the Fan:

He thinks the Colts receivers were so good because of the practice time they put in with Manning...not because of their speed.

Caught the long bomb (which you all knew about)...also caught an out to the left for a TD, and an out to the right for a TD...on consecutive plays.

I am curious what udfa can stick this year. It is nice hearing about someone like Page but it is only OTA right now

This time of the year is when fans wish The NFL allowed 75 man rosters.

Chris Harris has been working on the outside in OTA's...knows both outside, and nickel well.

Claims Defense picked off Manning 5 times on Tuesday...

Just say "no" to Ortons from Purdue.

Barring injury, the Broncos Defense is shaping up to be significantly better this year, than last...

1. The interior DL may be both better in run and pass situations - With the addition of Ty Warren, Derek Wolfe, Justin Bannan, Kevin Vickerson, Sealver Siliga, and Ben Garland...there will be 4 new DT's suiting up for the Broncos this year. Looks like Vickerson, Siliga, and Garland will be fighting for 1 roster spot.

2. The secondary is better suited to create turnovers, and excel in man coverage - The additions of Porter, Adams, and Florence, solidify the Broncos against the pass, and provides experience in creating turnovers. I look for Adams at FS to put a lid on the Defensive backfield, that did not exist in 2011. During his press conference, Florence said that press-man coverage is what has enabled him to excel...we will be running lots of that according to Chris Harris.

3. The LB's have a chance to be special - Cross your fingers that D.J. doesn't lose a lot of time to suspension. Mays will be better after a year of starting experience under his belt, and has been active in the passing game, batting down a couple balls in OTA's. Miller was DROY last year, and hopefully will only get better. Woodyard has experience, and will be solid on the weakside if D.J. is suspended.

I thought the roster size was 90. Are you saying you want less players out there?
