So one thing I've noticed with this team all preseason is that they seem to have really gelled as a squad. There are a lot of little things. When we score the whole team hustles down to the end-zone to celebrate. The defense is constantly pumping each other up... when someone makes a mistake you see encouragement (Josh's melt-down excluded).

I think it's really cool.

My favorite example from today: When Buckhalter scored the second TD he immediately recognized that Walton had completely dominated that play (and he REALLY did). He practically forces the ball on him.

Call me old fashioned, but seeing our guys out there playing hard and actually pulling for each other is a nice change. I'm not sure we've seen a team pulling together like this since Elway was holding the whole thing together.

*Edit: How the hell do I edit the title?

TD celebration for Broncos offensive line

After Correll Buckhalter dashed into the end zone for a one-yard score in the second quarter, the first teammate he found was rookie center J.D. Walton.
As Walton tried to start celebrating, Buckhalter shoved the football into Walton’s chest.
Walton appeared confused, wondering what Buckhalter wanted him to do with it. The answer? Spike the darn thing!
Walton threw the ball into the end zone grass and then caught Buckhalter for a celebratory hug.
“I like to let the linemen spike the ball,” Buckhalter said after the game.
Walton, who ended up blocking Seattle’s Lawyer Milloy to the middle of the end zone on the play, said that was the first time he’s ever spiked the football in celebration before.

Totally agree, enjolras. That was one of our major problems the last few years -- who the hell wants to be in a foxhole with Jay Cutler or Brandon Marshall? As talented as they were, they were a bit punky.

I thought the Buckhalter thing was incredibly classy. It was essentially Walton's touchdown, and Buck let him know it. Walton is probably going to get fined by his fellow linemen, but it was worth it.

Apparently Fox had Walton mic'd up for the game. I was wondering why that exchange wasn't replayed. Maybe it will come up on the NFL network highlights or something.

You edit the title through the "Edit" tab... then "Go Advanced". Or if you let me know what you want the thread title to be, I can fix it for you.

I just re-watched that TD. Walton did just bulldoze 2 guys on the play. Friggin' awesome.

The Seahawks were completely overmatched in that personnel group. Orton recognized it and audibled to take advantage of it. That said, Walton made the play... and Buckhalter made it a point to recognize him for it. I thought it was awesome.

I'll fix the thread title... and can edit it further if it's not the exact wording he wants.

As far as me... well, I've never stopped enjoying the Mane, Baja... I've been pretty much addicted to this place since TJ started it. :)

I loved how the whole team congratulated Thomas after his TD too. And Thomas' reaction was awesome as well.

Marshall caught a long ball against the Vikes and started running around like a moron, like he won the SB or something. Act like you've done it before dumbass!

I didn't even notice that, but that's awesome. Totally agree with OP.

Along the same lines did anyone else see Tebow and another player practicing the "Mile High Salute" on the sidelines during the game? The camera cut to a shot of them and stayed there for a good 15 / 20 seconds.

Right after I read this, I went to get some lunch.

The guy who works the sub shop in my building is a pretty cool guy, and we always talk about sports. I asked him what he thought of the game yesterday. He said (with some reservation) that it was good. I asked him why he hesitated...

His exact words were "I ****ing hate Josh McDaniels. I hope we go 4-12 so that he gets fired. I hate every single move he's made and I think he destroyed this team. I hate the direction this team is going. I hate how he drafts, and I can't stand the fact that all of his coaches are either ex-Patriots or former Ohio high school coaches"

Wow.

The way this season has been going with injuries, I'm still amazed that Walton got up (and so quickly) after that one. The way he got nailed in the back of the knees looked bad. Harris would probably be out for a year if he got hit like that.

Wow.

I have a bunch of friends like this too and I don't get it. These same people wanted Shanahan fired. Now they don't give Josh a chance. So who do they want? They'll say something like Carroll or Cowher. I laugh at them.

Better hope Harris doesn't check in here. If he sees that clip he might be out two more weeks just for watching it.

well Carroll was out coached yesterday. He stopped the run at the expense of getting beat through the air. Loved the audible by orton on the Buck TD too.

I hear a lot of that also. I don't get into a fistfight with them, although that's probably what they need, but I have to laugh at their ignorance
