Manning shines in Broncos' first padded practice

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Peyton Manning's first full practice in pads in 18 months drew rave reviews from his coaches and teammates and at least one suggestion that his health is no longer even an issue.

Manning put on an aerial show with Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker and others Saturday morning in the latest milestone to his comeback from a nerve injury that cost him all of last season and led to his release from the Indianapolis Colts.

Although Manning threw in full pads during his tryouts at Duke University for the Broncos and other suitors during his first foray into free agency in March and again at times while working out in Denver, this was his first real action in full pads since the Pro Bowl following the 2010 season.

Perkins Signed By Denver Broncos
Release: 07/28/2012 Courtesy: Curtis Snyder, Associate SID

DENVER—Former University of Colorado S Anthony Perkins was signed by the Denver Broncos, the club announced Saturday. Perkins was a senior on coach Jon Embree’s first CU squad last season.

He finished his CU career in 2011 with 236 tackles, including 140 solo, ranking 41st on CU’s all-time list. He played in nine of 13 games as a senior, getting hurt with just five games left in the season against Oregon on Oct. 22. Some thought he may not return, but he did with a vengeance, leading the Buffs with 17 tackles in the season finale at Utah, a 17-14 win for the Buffs, helping the team end a 23-game losing streak while being a three touchdown underdog.

Denver Broncos: 6 Potential Sleepers to Watch for in Training Camp

Denver Bronco training camp is officially underway!

This is great news for those of us who have been waiting impatiently since last January.

For a number of veterans, the start of training camp is nothing to be excited about.
Two-a-days in the heat, days filled with meetings and organized team activities all day aren't much fun for players who already have a set spot on the team.

But those players who are out there looking to earn a roster spot have to be sharp every day.

We know the stars on the team. We know Peyton Manning, Champ Bailey and Von Miller.

Yet, every year, there are a few players who come out of nowhere and compete to make the team.

The Broncos have some key positions where they need help.

The defense has to improve this season. The offense will look completely different.
There are positions that are ripe for the taking.

So, who will the sleepers be this season? You may not know a few names listed here right now.

But you will.
Here are six players to keep an eye on.

Derek Wolfe making his mark wherever he can



One play, Derek Wolfe burst through the offensive line, sharing a sack of Caleb Hanie with Malik Jackson. A play later, he dove on a botched snap for the fumble recovery.
All this from the right defensive end position. Wolfe was drafted as a defensive tackle.

“I’m playing the call side defensive end right now, the three technique. Just all over the d-line,” Wolfe said. “That’s what I did in college, I played all over the place. I do what they need me to do.”
Versatility wasn’t what the Denver Broncos were looking for when they drafted Derek Wolfe with the 36th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. What the Broncos need from Wolfe — and what they drafted him for — was his notable relentlessness. They need someone tenacious on the defensive line who doesn’t quit. Wolfe fits that bill.

“I’m not the type of guy that’s going to run around you. I’m going to try to go through you,” boasted Wolfe. “That’s what happens when you put pads on. You try to go through people, you try to be physical.”
Wolfe finally had his opportunity to be physical today as the Broncos donned full pads for the first time. In limited work he made the plays noted earlier and also got into the opposing quarterback’s face on at least one other occasion. Those highlights are encouraging to say the least, but if he Wolfe can perform similarly from an inside three-technique position, the Broncos would be even happier.

Denver Broncos 2012 Training Camp: Day 3 – The Manning to Decker Show



The Denver Broncos donned the pads for the first time Saturday morning, and the sound of popping hard plastic echoed across the fields of Dove Valley. “It’s not really football when you don’t have pads on,” rookie defensive lineman Derek Wolfe volunteered. Indeed, the pads were a welcome addition to the Broncos’ 2012 training camp atmosphere.
So were the ooh’s and aah’s of the crowd, as Ring of Famers Karl Mecklenburg, Terrell Davis, and, of course, John Elway attended Saturday’s session, while Peyton Manning and Eric Decker put on a clinic for the 4,443 fans in attendance. That number broke the record set Thursday of 4,172; it was a hell of a Saturday morning show. One we’ll call, The Manning to Decker Show.

ROLL CALL

Safety Quinton Carter was held out following his hamstring injury yesterday. John Fox was hopeful they’ll get him back soon. Jamie Blatnick (ankle) continued to be limited.

John Elway (BroncoTalk.net photo)

INJURY REPORT

Right tackle Orlando Franklin left practice early with a “crick in his neck,” per Coach Fox.

THE MANNING TO DECKER SHOW

Wide receiver vs. defensive back one-on-ones are a highlight-worthy drill every practice, and today’s was no exception. The second snap of the drill was the best play of the day.

Eric Decker squared off against the one and only Champ Bailey, giving fans the perfect early setup: Hall of Fame quarterback vs. Hall of Fame cornerback, with the former’s favorite target in between. The setup didn’t disappoint. Decker ran deep down the right sideline, getting a step on Bailey as Manning threw for the end zone. The two connected for the touchdown right in front of the fans, who went absolutely wild.

Peyton “looks normal” after first practice in pads

Posted by Mike Florio on July 28, 2012, 9:29 PM EDT


Reuters
Back in March, the constant gushing by free-agent receiver Brandon Stokley regarding free-agent quarterback Peyton Manning seemed more than a little incredible, especially since the prior months consisted of gloom and doom coming from a Colts franchise that surely would have preferred Manning to play neither for them nor for anyone else.

Now that both men play for the Broncos, Stokley’s words after the team’s first practice in pads seem more consistent with reality.

“To me, he looks great,” Stokley told the media on Saturday. “I said that when I was working out with him six months ago. . . .

“He looks like he’s just gotten better and better. He looks normal. That’s kind of not even a topic of discussion with us anymore.”

Coach John Fox was more succinct, but no less glowing. “Excellent,” Fox said of Manning. “The guy comes to work every day, whether it’s in that building or on that field, he attacks it like no other.”

Last year, the 8-8 Broncos made it to the final eight with Tim Tebow. This year, with the team basically the same and Tebow swapped out for one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, there’s a chance that on the first Sunday in February Colts owner Jim Irsay will be tweeting the blues from under his bed.

Thomas prepares for more attention from defenses

ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football WriterPublished:
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Demaryius Thomas and Tim Tebow seemed like a match made in heaven.

The two first-round draft picks schooled in the old option offense helped the Denver Broncos end their playoff drought last season, then connected for one of the most electrifying endings ever: an 80-yard TD toss on the first play of overtime to beat Pittsburgh in the playoffs.

Their coming out party soon became a farewell bash.

Three months after Thomas and Tebow starred in the longest winning play in NFL playoff history, the bond was broken when Tebow was sent packing one day after Peyton Manning's arrival.

Now, Thomas couldn't be happier to be on the other end of Manning's passes, even though he knows he's going to face plenty of double teams in 2012.

Manning's eager to play with Thomas, at 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, the biggest target he's ever had in his 15 seasons as a pro.

After all, in December and January, Thomas' numbers -- 35 catches for 745 yards, four touchdowns and a 109.3-yard receiving average -- were second only to Detroit's Calvin "Megatron" Johnson. And this, despite playing in an ultra-conservative offense that didn't allow receivers to strut their stuff.

Thomas caught 10 passes for 297 yards in the playoffs, prompting former teammate Eddie Royal to marvel, "Imagine what he would do with 20 targets a game."
Fantasy football freaks certainly are salivating over the possibilities.

They figure Thomas will really pop with Manning, a 65 percent career passer with four MVP trophies and a Super Bowl ring on his resume delivering the ball rather than Tebow, who completed just 46 percent of his passes last season and only 40 percent in the playoffs.

The Kaptain’s Log-2012 Broncos Training Camp-7/28/12-Part



Photo by Kaptain Kirk 7/28/12

I plan my arrival early enough (6 am) to ensure a spot in the parking lot. I found Gary (PearlJamBroncosGFunk) and deliver a pair of Broncos one-sies for his new daughter Lily. When they allow to us enter, we take a spot at the far 43 yard line and settle in. It is already hot and taking note of the line, it looks like another record crowd. I also meet fellow Broncos blogger Brenda Stidham, who writes for Denver Horse Force.

At 8:35, David Bruton emerges in full pads and Brock Osweiler begins to warm up with a ball boy. The rest of the team filters out in their position groups. The Jugs machine is set for the beginning stanza with the Special Teams Unit. HORN.

Special Teams coach Jeff Rodgers has the Punt Return Unit drilling 1 on 1 in their break and retreat from the Line of Scrimmage and their turn around and block technique. He stresses that "if you can read the players name, don’t block him." Sage wisdom from the coach.

As an aside, I really like this attention to different techniques during drills. This is the time and place for instruction.
Omar Bolden, Drayton Florence, Matthew Willis, Eric Decker, Syd’Quan Thompson and Tracy Porter are fielding punts shot by the Jugs machine. Meanwhile, on the opposite field, the Defensive Backs are doing backpeddle and crossover drills. HORN.

Now it’s time for the 1st team 11 on 11’s. Champ Bailey swaggers around the Defense and gets the boys fired up to set the tone for the day.
I notice Von Miller guarding Jacob Tamme on the first play, which is an outlet pass completion to Willis McGahee. Willis takes a handoff around the right side and turns the corner on the next play. Demaryius Thomas is drawing coverage by Champ Bailey early in this segment. Peyton Manning hits Eric Decker in a crossing route from the slot. This segment looks to be all about the short passing game. Also of note, is the fact that is is at 1/2 speed. Danny Trevathan is playing at the Weak side Linebacker position for a look. He will end up rotating with Wesley Woodyard at times throughout the practice, but in this part of practice, Danny is getting the reps with the 1st team.

2012 NFL Season Win Totals

by Bruce Raffel on Jul 28, 2012 9:37 PM EDT in Stories

The wagering site, Bovada, has posted win totals for each NFL team for the 2012 regular season. They range from the teams they think will win the most games in the season (12: Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots) to the teams they are betting will win the fewest games in 2012 (5: Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts).

They have the Baltimore Ravens win total at ten games, the same amount as their AFC North rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Also at ten games are the Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49ers. The Philadelphia Eagles are considered a half-game better than that group, with a win total of 10.5 games.

The defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants are not getting the love they perhaps thought they deserve, as their win total line is at nine games. the same as Eli Manning's brother, Peyton's new team, the Denver Broncos, are getting. Joining them at the nine win total are the San Diego Chargers, Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons, all a half-game behind the Chicago Bears, expected to win either more or less than 9.5 games.

(See the full list and odds for all 32 teams)

Exclusive Q&A With Broncos Great Rod Smith



Rod Smith’s name has been resurfacing a lot lately. His face graces the cover of the 2012 Denver Broncos media guide, he spoke to players about working hard to achieve success the night before training camp started, and he’s being inducted into the Broncos’ Ring of Fame in September.
The two-time Super champion entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Missouri Southern State. He left the NFL with 849 receptions for 11,389 yards, and 68 touchdowns attached to his name. Talk about a work-horse.
I had the opportunity to speak with Smith at the Barrels of Love Foundation silent auction, honoring the late Tim Mckernan, otherwise known as “Barrel Man.” Smith was gracious enough to take a few minutes with us so let’s jump right in.
Predominantly Orange: What does being inducted into the Broncos’ Ring of Fame mean to you?
Rod Smith: It means a lot of the hard work that you put in, people recognize it. I don’t play for honors, I play for wins. Through that process of winning, you’re going to do some good things. We had some great teams and a bunch of guys that came together and fought real hard, so it makes it fun because you represent every guy from those years.
PO: You had the chance to play with John Elway, but now the Broncos have a future Hall of Fame quarterback on the roster again. What does that do for team morale?
RS: Honestly, it’s one of those things where you shouldn’t have to try to elevate your game. You should always be playing at a high level. When you’re playing with a guy who is accurate and knows the game as well as Peyton (Manning), it really gives you a comfort knowing that you’re playing with one of the best to ever take a snap. I expect the receivers to really have a great year overall, not just stats wise, but overall a great year. When I played with John, it was an honor and I had to give everything I had on every single snap to make sure he did better. That was my goal, that was my role, and hopefully those guys have the same mentality.
PO: You had to manage some high expectations in the years after you won your two Super Bowls. The Broncos have some high expectations going into this season. What advice would you give players on how to manage those expectations?
RS: Take it one game at a time, take practice one day at a time. What I did is just a constant recall of “CANI” which means Constant And Never-ending Improvement. What that meant to me was everyday get a little bit better. You can’t play one game, and then play the fourth game before you play the second game, so just one day at a time, look at the film, and figure out what could I have done a little bit better today. If you constantly get better individually, as a group you come together a lot faster.
A big thanks goes out to Rod for taking some time with us to give his insight into this season. He’s not only a man with great football skills, but one that the Broncos are still lucky to have in their corner.
Make sure to follow Predominantly Orange on Facebook and on Twitter.

I must say that if you can friend Rod on FB do it. He really has some great posts. He is doing very well in the diamond business. It's interesting stuff. Rod is a smart guy.

Is anyone else starting to get the feeling the Colts are really going to regret dumping Manning. This is going to be like the curse of the Bambino.

I don't get that feeling at all. As long as Luck lives up to half the hype, I think they'll look back on this as a great move. Really looking at their overall draft I'd be super excited if I was a Colts fan. So much potential there.

It's not like they were going to be in position to make another Super Bowl run before Manning retires. I'm sure they know that.

My thoughts from camp:

These aren't going to be fully in depth because it is the 3rd day of camp, and only the first day in full pads. So its really hard to make any kind of definite opinion this early.

Manning Camp - Offense

As it has been discussed already today was the Manning to Decker show. Clearly those two worked together a lot this offseason because they are on the same page every play. One thing I noticed was when the scrubs were taking their reps Manning and Decker would be talking and reviewing how routes were run, there was a lot of hand gestures showing angles to take etc. I think Decker will be the number one receiver which will benefit the guy opposite of him, which I assume will be DT. If DT starts to heat up and they roll double coverage over to him then Decker will benefit. WR will be a strength if things continue the way they have trended thus far.

Our WR's are a big group overall, much bigger than in years past. I don't want to get too caught up in the hype but it will be interesting to see what the stats are like for the WR this year. It is crazy how big DT really is. Granted he is standing next to Stokely who isn't a big guy but I mean damn he is big:


Bey Bey

Montrose and I were talking at lunch and we came to the agreement that this offense will be a lot of passing. Which is of the devil for a John Fox coached team. But there was a lot of emphasis on it so far. Maybe that is just early work to get them in sync but it just kind of feels like they have big plans to throw. As they should.

There has been a lot of discussion about Bailey and the D getting shredded by the pass so far. Remember a lot of this was in 7v7 with no pass rush and even in 11v11 the DL and LB were not in full speed pass rush mode. So Manning was comfortable in the pocket and didn't have to rush. However, Bailey and the rest of the CB's were not getting embarrassed by the WR routes. More often than not Bailey was covering Decker or DT, or whatever WR like a glove. Yet Manning still made the throw. His accuracy and timing is one of the most freakishly talented abilities I have ever seen.

What really stuck out to me was the footwork of the QB's. I am willing to bet if you let anyone here watch film of the throwing drills today with only the footwork visible, nearly everyone but Bob would be able to identify who is the best QB on the field.

Manning has amazing footwork and while he looks like a baby giraffe learning to walk when he runs, his feet are lightning fast and there is no wasted effort. Caleb Hanie wad decent with footwork and even BO was good too. Adam Weber was the sloppiest and poorest of the bunch.

Which leads me to the back ups. If Manning gets hurt we are drafting in the top 5. Caleb Hanie sucks, again this is only the third practice but he is just bad.

BO, is raw. He has a very surprising passing ability and can fire the ball out there.

Adam Weber, well the source who said he was better than Tebow is the jackass many of us think he was. But Montrose made a good point that he provides value because he can play the mobile QB in practice for when we play those teams with that style QB.

Stay tuned for my thoughts on Running Backs, Defense, and yes even special teams.

Running Backs

Whachu Talkin Bout Willis is clearly the starter, not a surprise. After that its a toss up. I didn't get to see a lot of the backs from where I was sitting today but I did see Knowshon doing a lot of sprints and watching and hyping up teammates today. That was about all he did.

It is weird seeing a true FB, let alone 2 of the field again. Gronk is a big dude, that family must have eaten testosterone heavy diets at some point in their gene pool.

Attention Mr. Kuper

I didn't see much of your kid today, sorry.......


A lot of his work was done on the complete opposite end of me today and I didn't want to get up and move as I was in full on Manning watching mode. I will tell you this though, he doesn't show much of a limp, if any, from his horrific injury last year. The coaches and training staff are clearly making an effort to ease him back in though. He rarely stayed in more than 2 plays max.

I didn't see when Deebo tweaked his neck but I heard he left just shy of practice ending for the day. Hopefully it was just precautionary.

People thinking Decker will be the number 1 WR are kidding themselves. Couple days of practice is all you need to make that decision huh? No way. DT is too big, too fast and too athletic to not be the number 1 WR. He's a man among boys and decker is a route runner.
