@ballinnickcast not really, will keep my eye on TE Julius Thomas..he's got Gates upside 9 minutes ago via web in reply to ballinnickcast



@Kev10486 I hear ya, just reporting what I've seen, not saying OMG THE SKY IS FALLING!! re: Tebow, #broncos etc 13 minutes ago via web in reply to Kev10486

@Lloydwit2Ls We'll see Lloyd, but damn did Moreno look skinny today! 14 minutes ago via web in reply to Lloydwit2Ls

@Skotty_Payne I hope so Scotty, nerves had to be the answer re: Tebow today 15 minutes ago via web in reply to Skotty_Payne


@bobhenry Jeremiah Johnson is a star in the making if he can stay healthy #hesgotskills 15 minutes ago via web in reply to bobhenry

@iasnellman I'd like to say yes, but the answer is no....maybe in TD heavy leagues as he could be their GL back 16 minutes ago via web in reply to iasnellman

@courtney883 they're going to keep Orton if they don't get proper value 2nd or 3rd 16 minutes ago via web in reply to courtney883

@randyschwimmer7 White's in 25 17 minutes ago via web in reply to randyschwimmer7

#broncos WR Brandon Lloyd is the real deal. Looked FANTASTIC. so good it makes me want to cuss - guy will make plays in Foxy offense 17 minutes ago via web

Final point on White for now. he can make this team if he plays like he did today the rest of camp and stays healthy it's the feet! #rexryan 18 minutes ago via web

White showed good balance, instincts, and moves! Again, footwork most important attribute for a RB - it's why he's gotten by on avg talent 19 minutes ago via web

combine white's feet with Moreno and you'd have something there! 20 minutes ago via web

White showcased his great feet today, making good cuts and keeping his balance running against the grain 23 minutes ago via web

now on to #broncos RB LenDale White - SLIM! TRIM! FIT! not too skinny (like Moreno) and still big thighs, strong bubble 23 minutes ago via web

plenty of #broncos RB Jeremiah Johnson love coming up when I get home, extensive notes on his game, LOOKED GREAT...more in a bit 24 minutes ago via web

#broncos UDFA Adam Weber looked good, strong play action fakes, flutter passes when asked to throw deep though 25 minutes ago via web

#broncos QB Tim Tebow had a pass batted down at the LOS and at least one pick, motion was very deliberate, he's thinking about it too much 26 minutes ago via web

#broncos QB Brady Quinn looked decent....more decisive, strong passes, a few off the mark deep sidelines though..looked better than Timmy 27 minutes ago via web

#broncos QB Kyle Orton looked good, damn good...lots of zip on his passes, good bark, looks/plays pissed/focused 28 minutes ago via web


I thought Tebow held on to the ball too long at #broncos practice today, certainly looked rough around the edges 29 minutes ago via web

#broncos Moreno didn't look noticeably faster or quicker, still slipped on a cutback - again, instincts: good ... footwork: poor 30 minutes ago via web

Yes, I just tweeted about Moreno's butt 31 minutes ago via web

here's some practice notes from #broncos #dovevalley Moreno is noticeably smaller, thin, looks fragile, thin hips too, no bubble 31 minutes ago via web

@Kraigkennicutt didn't stand out, but looking forward to seeing him more, speed is there 32 minutes ago via web in reply to Kraigkennicutt

@Jparvin today? Orton1...Quinn2....Tebow3....Weber4 - Timmy was real rough today 37 minutes ago via web in reply to Jparvin

@eakfootball certainly if he can stay healthy, looked very light on his feet today 37 minutes ago via web in reply to eakfootball

#Broncos RB Jeremiah Johnson was the best back in practice today, LenDale second best

His name was Jeremiah Johnson, and they say he wanted to be a mountain man. The story goes that he was a man of proper wit and adventurous spirit, suited to the mountains. Nobody knows whereabouts he come from and don't seem to matter much. He was a young man and ghosty stories about the tall hills didn't scare him none. He was looking for a Hawken gun, .50 caliber or better. He settled for a .30, but damn, it was a genuine Hawken, and you couldn't go no better. Bought him a good horse, and traps, and other truck that went with being a mountain man, and said good-bye to whatever life was down there below.

I don't think so, if they said he got ****faced on a mixture of Grey Goose and E last night I would respect that. If they say he is dehydrated they make it sound like he is that kid who eats crayons and can't figure out how to work the water fountain, I don't want a stupid safety.

I will take a drunk over a retard any day.

Boy I'm probably going to get flames for this but who cares.

I think Tebow is a lot like Hillis was. In practice he is nothing special but when the game is on that is the time when he shines. I would still like to see him improve on the short pass though.

As for Orton of course he looked great, I'm sure there was no pressure.

Hillis Shines when the game is on? Oh yeah if you take the mane as gosple. He fumbled in way to many critical situations last year too, but lets go ahead and forget about that.

I also check in with the OM from time to time! :wave:

Got my start in the business years ago thanks to fantasy football (and thanks to Scott Hastings, Mark Schlereth, and Adam Schefter) but now have expanded into NFL analysis as well.

LOL, I wanted Marvin Austin in the draft....didn't happen so on to FAs. Barry Cofield made sense to me but he's off the board already.

Jenkins is in play (surprisingly) but Cowboys and Saints after him too.

Mebane seems like the most likely.

I usually go to as many as I can. I love them!! But i dont know about a walk through. Not so much the contact, but just to see how the guys look. I cant tell about that RB you were talking about if hes just doing a walk through.


I might still show up, but if they are really just walking and what not...I dont want to be the only person there either.

After watching these two videos I don't find it completely outside the realm of possibility that he could break out. Seems like an injury hurt him at Houston and he hasn't gotten a legitimate shot since. Yet he certainly seems more talented than your average practice squad scrub.

I doubt it happens, but wouldn't it be great if this guy blew up for us?

Ya know, I agree with this a lot. But coaches have a real hard time playing a guy that doesn't get it done in practice, that's just how coaches are.

And yeah, Tebow looks awkward on the short passes.
