Kuper is tough. He's played with broken hands several times. It doesn't matter to me. At this point I'm numb. I've pretty much made peace with the fact we're going to suck this year. I'm going to have no expectations and try and enjoy our young players. We should probably trade Orton and just play Tebow now.

I'm not throwing in the towel. If we can hang around .500, there's a chance at the halfway mark players will start coming back. We could start to really finish strong. Its not likely, but its something to hope for.

The stage is setting itself for it.

Every injury that adds up, especially to the D, puts more pressure on the offense to maintain consistent drives, convert on 3rd and score. These are things Kyle can't do at a high level.

But someone else can... and not only can he, he fits the McD profile/arrogance to a T

Given how badly we are front loaded on our schedule this year, it's still going to be dicey. Especially with Doom's injury, it's going to take a long time to rebuild his strength, so just returning from injury probably won't be enough.

I wonder if the Broncos have thought about asking Doom to give them a extra year on the contact ;-)

Erk.

Tebow's not ready to be the full time QB right now. He has the accuracy, but the game is much to fast, and throwing him into the water, won't make him swim. Better to introduce him to it slowly.

If anything, to protect Kyle we should consider Tebow purely for the mobility. All accounts of Quinn are that he's playing scared (because he's a huge mangina, like I've been saying all along.). Tebow's mobility is exactly what this piece-mail offensive line needs until they can stabilize themselves.

The best way to enjoy this season is to have zero expectations and just enjoy watching some of these young guys develop. The playoffs aren't even on my radar anymore.

Problem is Broncos have lost key spots already, Clady down most of offseason, on a team that is really thin for talent. Especially top end talent. Really the team will be lucky to get to .500. More then likely Broncos get asses handed to them this yr. Maybe even by the Silver and Black.

That's a good way to ruin him forever. He needs to learn discipline and patience, and trusting the system. He could be mobile enough to start to compensate for the disastrous situation we have at our lines, but he won't be effective at anything else.

If we are 0-6 at the halfway mark, then let's re-examine it, until then, let's play for long term investment.

Most of that just a crap oline. They stunk last yr. None of the bkup OT were worth a crap, Kuper didn't play that great, the Center spot totally went south because Weigman just got too old.

With proper blocking almost any RB can pick up 3rd and less then 3 yrds. Sure some are special like Marcus Allen who seemed to be able to do it with no blocking.

I see WR as one of the toughest spot. So no way the rookie is anywhere near what Marshall did. So worst there. Clady misses all offseason and I don't see him playing well early in season if at all. So big problems there. I'm still not sold the young interior oline ready yet. Could be some problems there.

Moreno is already hurt.

Our QB not great and we have a rookie. If things go bad you could see the rook play some which could be hard to watch in his first yr.

The defensive line has been revamped with old players other teams didn't want anymore. That could work. But more then likely one, or more of them doesn't work out or gets injured.

Then last yr I thought Bailey looked washed up. I know that is tough to hear and I love him also. But I think his days of being elite could be coming to an end. He falls into to be a normal player we lose another difference maker.

Then Doom going down just kills the one weapon we had in the front seven.

That coupled with Oakland getting better, Charger already better, IMO leaves us battling the other crap team, the queefs, for 2nd to last place.

Obviously our 2 best players being down is part of my prediction. Our offense doesn't scare anyone and the defense is average. That spells bad yr to me. Not sure what you see that makes you think they can compete.

I agree. I've watched enough football to know that this team too young at key spots, has too many injuries, to be expected to win anything more then 6-7 games. I felt a lot better about last yr. This yr we may be better against the run upfront but even that probably wears down when the old guys get worn out.

It's cool for people to be optimistic though. Not like Kaylore and I won't be cheering if they win. Just not expecting it. The signs all point to a bad yr.

Recently signed wide receivers Patrick Carter and Britt Davis made their practice debuts while veteran receivers Brandon Stokley and Jabar Gaffney took the morning practice off.


Stockley and Gaffney practiced Thursday afternoon and likely will attend this afternoon's practice. The same scenario goes for Champ Bailey and Justin Bannan, who were also missing from morning practice.


Safety Brian Dawkins has not practiced since Wednesday and missed his fourth full practice this morning for undisclosed reasons.


Rookie wide receiver Demaryius Thomas stood out during the morning practice, extending his body to catch a few deep balls on his way to the end zone. He caught a pass from rookie teammate Tim Tebow that brought cheers from the big crowd watching this morning's practice.

Running back Lendale White, still learning Josh McDaniels' offensive system, received limited reps during team drills, but he managed to break a few big plays when he lined up in the backfield. He caught a pass out of the backfield from Kyle Orton and ran a few yards down the sideline. A few minutes later, he ran off tackle for a big gain. Bruce Hall received most of the carries at running back in the absence of injured Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter.


Trainers were looking at offensive linemen Chris Kuper, who appears to have suffered a right ankle injury. The trainers took off his shoe and Kuper likely will sit out this afternoon's practice.

This afternoon's practice is scheduled from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

But, it's camp. Guys move around in the depth chart. Optimism runs high and we often hear about guys having great camps who don't pan out.

I think Florida and I would beg to differ. I've always argued that he needed far more time to develop due to his staph infection followed by injured first season.

It wasn't mountains, the Japanese like to grow these mini trees -- the art of Bonsai. So part of their coastal defense was growing the hedge rows at Normandy. It was artistic and effective to some degree at first.

I think Florida and I would beg to differ. I've always argued that he needed far more time to develop due to his staph infection followed by injured first season.

I know people seem to hate him, but I feel he is a freak athlete that needed more time due to circumstances.

Did the Broncos forfeit the season or just the O'maners?

The good news Darkhorse is that there are very few actual season ticket holders on the mane. Less than 20 that I know of. Maybe 50 if you even count the lurkers. That leaves 77,000 people who will still go to the games. :thumbs:

I read the story on the Denver Post. Sounds like he'll probably have surgery, miss 2 weeks of practice, then return w/ a cast to practice and play after that.

Who's running w/ the 1's now ... Ayers and Atkins or Kirlew? Got to bring in someone at least for depth.

Injuries are a part of the game, but it is understandable to see people concerned. Dumervil is probably for most of the year, if not all of it. Jarvis, although really inexperienced, was expected to fill a decent roll with Elvis' vacancy -- and now he is hurt. We can have high hopes for Ayers, but he still has a lot to prove and the depth at OLB behind these guys is even more concerning.

Glad to hear that Kuper's ankle was rolled -- with the possibility of two rookies already starting on the interior, Clady and Harris coming back from injury; the last thing we needed was Kuper missing time.

Talk about Mangina's!! ... some of you guys need to MAN the hell up! Id hate to have to jump in a fox hole with some of the nervous nellies here.

Yeah we've had some crap bad luck so far. Maybe its about over and we start gradually getting the guys back. Too bad about Mckinley but with Willis lighting it up he was probably going to draw the short straw this year anyway. Barrett too was a decent special teamer but not irreplacable by any means.

Knowshon and Buck should both be back and running by game 1 though it may take a couple games for Moreno to be back at top speed. Clady is the big question now. Here's hoping he is back by game two . I dont expect to see Doom at all this year which is a terrible blow, but the rest of our D is much improved and they will compensate to a decent degree.

The new BIG d-line with Jamal, Green and Bannen and the second year for guys like McBean and Fields, Baker in rotation will mean a big jump in improvement in the over all D and the run game in particular.

McD and Wink will have to get creative to help offset some of Dooms lost production but Ayers, Moss and Haggan now really have to step up and work together to pressure the QB .. and we'll see selective use of the 4-3 to compensate some too.

I look for early struggles and a much stronger finish this year. A refreshing flip-side from the last years of starting out like gang busters then fading fast. Of course we are not likley to go deep in the playoffs, we do have a lot of young guys at key positions,

The problem is, its likely the large and apparently growing nervous nelly portion of the fan base will have to have portable cardiac defibrillators attached to survive the first half of the year. And no doubt the 'Doom and Goons' squad like Jhns and Lost in Space etc will be mistaken for rabid dogs with the froth of their disdain and vile hatred of 'all things Josh' pouring out of their mouths and keyboards on overload with every difficult game.

Even like Shanny said two weeks ago in talking about the Broncos, 'Josh just needs time to get the guys he needs to fit his system and philosophy and get them up to speed'. and in saying that he was speaking of himself too in Washington.

We are in rebuilding mode. Losing key guys on top of it truly sucks donkey balls, but this can and will still very much be a fun year to watch!

Look for improved play in the second half of the year as the Oline stiffens and the new WRs start to get more comfortable with the speed of the game ... Tebow too in what will likely be a significant role, particuarly if the line struggles more in pass protection early.

At this point, it looks like only Doom among the significant players is going to miss significant time, so its still premature for all the chicken little's out there to start having their monthly panic attacks quite yet.

I'm as pissed off as anyone else at the injuries so far but I only see one so far .. maybe two ... that is for sure going to have a big impact on the season at this point. Doom and perhaps Clady depending on when we get him back.

I understand the concern and feeling down about it, but I see a lot of over reaction for it being still only the first week of training camp too. If was goign t ohappen better now than the last week before the season starts.

We have time to get most everyone back on board.

Yeah, I feel you. Everybody is getting down -- but there is still a lot to be excited for. Elvis is really the only big named guy. Moreno will be back.

Yep. You could make pretty sound arguments that his health and working under Jacob Burney/Bob Slowik stunted his growth signifcantly. Now the kid has spent time under some well respected coaches (Nolan, Wink, Nunnely) and has apparently gained weight. This is his chance to prove his defenders right.

I was just skimming through some of the coverage of other camps and was reading about a number of kids down with ACLs, sprains, etc. Living here in Dallas, we've seen Dez down 4-6 and now Marcus Spears about the same.

Broncos have put together a decent squad, but the problem is once injuries pile up, it shows the weak depth the Broncos have.

Colts' Charlie Johnson, Andy Alleman carted off with injuries

The Indianapolis Colts suffered two injuries on the offensive line in today's practice.

Phillip B. Wilson of the Indianapolis Star reports that offensive tackle Charlie Johnson and guard Andy Alleman were both carted off the field with leg or foot injuries.

There's no immediate word about the severity of the injuries. Colts coach Jim Caldwell said he will provide more information about the injuries on Saturday.

Johnson is the Colts' starting left tackle, so losing him for any significant period of time would be a tough blow to the Colts' offense. Alleman, who started three games for the Chiefs last year, was signed by the Colts in the offseason.
