Ya know... for a guy that has a weak arm... Kyle sure can zip some throws.

I thought the same thing. Orton is not a problem. He's smart with the football and can make the throws he needs to.

The more this offense plays together in real game situations, the better they are going to get.

Oh and by the way, here is that guy's Youtube channel. I suggest we all give him some thanks and props in his comment section!

It's great to see the game slowing down for Knowshon...

He's about this >.< close to breaking it wide open on about 3-4 of those runs.


He'll get his time... and I think the Oakland Raiders game is a perfect time!

I definitely noticed this during the game. His lack of arm strength is way overblown. No - he doesn't have the strongest arm in the league. However, his arm isn't Chad Pennington-weak, either.

His throw at 6:30 was a beauty.

Loved the block by scheff at 9:22

Top notch ... enjoyed that.

loved the knowshon highlights too .... 6+ really good plays he made. He got 97 yards through both the ground 17-75 and air 2-22.

Not bad for a guy still waiting to find his groove in the nfl.

I was thinking that same thing watching that game last night, Pennington seems to get a lot of props, whats the difference between him an Orton? I think Orton has a stronger arm.

Kyle will be fine and when the WR all get on the same page as the season progresses and the line ( they are close) and RBs do too, look out.

The only thing that could hold us back is injuries. If we get lucky this year with the injury bug, as we have been so far, we're going to be a very good football team come December.

Even Moss and Welker said it took them a year to really relax and know just what they were suppose to do in this new complex offense that started in 2007. When Royal, Marshall ( if he's capable?) and the rest get it all together and Knowshon starts to turn it on with the one, two, three punch of Knowshon, Buckhalter and Hillis, it could get wicked by the second half of the season.

Things are already slowing down for Orton as well. They get a few of these miscommunication issues in the first half cleared up this week and next and we'll be playing with a lead most games. Then the defense can really T-off and Doom might challenge the sack record :-)

Did anyone else see Ayers in there on Doom's third sack?

Had Elvis not got him I think Robert might of had his first career sack

1) Orton made some nice hard throws. They had some zip. Other than that he was making some really nice reads/decisions. He's doing fine.
2) Royal, Stokely and Gaffney really are fine as our top 3 WR's.
3) Moreno looks better than I realized catching the ball and in pass pro (I think that was him)
4) Marshall is a dumbass.


5) I love our Defense. There. I said it. I love those guys.

Thanks for the links, Crush. Fun to watch this stuff. (After a win, of course. :) )

Joe Thomas held the **** out of Ayer's every time Dumervil got a sack. I mean some SERIOUS holding.

Very encouraging that the staff trusts Ayers enough to have him out there early and often. Hopefully as he gets his head around things, he'll be more of a force. I haven't really seen him make any big plays, but he's played smart and hasn't been out of position, either.


Side-note: How sweet is it that we can move Doom from side to side, and exploit whichever tackle struggles with his type of pass-rushing style?

Bowlen and Co. need to lock Doom up, and right ****ing now.

Chad is a lot more accurate. Orton completed 19/37, that's only a 51% completion rate. Hopefully he can improve.

A lot of people aren't realizing that we only put up 13 points on the Browns until the fourth quarter, that definitely has to change. We're not going to be very good if we can only put 13 points through three quarters.

I actually thought Marshall did enough in the game to prove he isn't trying to play bad. Sure he had the penalty but he was just blocking hard like they want him to.

He made some plays here and there and IMO is going to have a good yr. He won't get 100 balls but he was targeted a ridiculous amount of times in all honesty.

I still think he can get 70-80 balls and close to 1000 yrds.

With a new QB and not getting off to a good start I think teams and the Broncos also will overlook numbers not as good as last y yrs.

What will be important is how Marshall performs down the stretch. He will need to at some point get going and finish season strong.

IMO he will do that. Look for some huge games down the road for Marshall.

well part of that needs to be solved with getting big plays. Marshall is a part of that solution IMO at some point this yr.

Also you can't settle for fgs, and then also miss those fgs, thats a double whammy that will keep the score down.

Broncos have a ton of work to do I don't think anyone saying the team has arrived or is a Superbowl contender.

People are just saying that Orton is proving himself a decent qb. The Broncos look to be a better football team this yr then last yr.

Awesome thoughts everyone... I like this type of discussion 100000000000000000000000 X more than the fan against fan nonsense that was the offseason.

If they keep winning and improving, what more can we ask?

Go Broncs!

Take a look at where Dumervil hits with his hands when he gets his sacks, he always goes for the hands/lower arms of the QB. You can see how he got all those forced fumbles in college, he goes for the ball more than the big hit, that is how pass rushers should be taught to go for the QB, very low risk of yellow flags for hands to the face of leading with the helmet and high risk of forcing fumbles or disrupting throws and causing incompletions or interceptions.

Is it me or is Darrell Reid quietly having a big impact on defense and special teams? I know everybody is all about Dawkins and Davis, but Reid is looking like a really solid FA signing, I noticed him getting double blocked a couple of times too and he faced Steinbach who is one of the better Browns OL.

Completely agree. He's been at the center of some big plays several times now.

Great observation!

wow I forgot how good Knowshon looked, especially out of the backfield. And some of his runs he turned little or no gain into good positive yardage. I am looking forward to what the kid can do.

Knowshon looks awesome, and Ayers is showing some flashes too. The spin move inside on the second of the back to back sacks was nice - he completely lost the OL and put himself right in front of the QB.

A few thoughts:

1. Clady just neutralizes rushers and erases people on the run. I noticed on several passing plays that Kyle didn't even seem to be thinking about pressure from Clady's side. Think of the freedom that gives a QB.

2. Orton moves pretty well in the pocket and several times bought just enough time to make something happen. He also throws a very catchable ball.

3. Buckhalter is MUCH better than I thought he would be. It's easy to forget about the success he had with the Eagles before his major injuries slowed him down.

4. Moreno is showing flashes of brilliance, and catches the ball very well out of the backfield. There's an effortlessness about the way he runs sometimes that belies the intensity. I'm excited.

5. The Browns are the Browns. I'm trying to temper my enthusiasm.

Doom just built so low to the ground I think he just comes in naturally right around a QBs elbow, if doom dips he is at the hip's really easy.

Most qbs a half foot taller then him!!!!

Well, I guess it's a good thing the NFL requires the teams to play 4 quarters then, huh?

I'm frankly kind of shocked that numerous posters have said this about moreno like they're suprised he's talented. This kid was the most complete back coming out of college this past season...he's been compared to Barry Sanders as far as his ability to make people miss him, and rarely does the first guy get their mitts on him.

Barring injury this kid should become the feature back we've not had for quite some time.
