I'm glad Davis Breaston is doing well, but more so that Adams can be expendable. I hope Duke Nacho keeps the starting spot though, just because of that name. Duke or Nacho would be cool enough, but to have both... I mean Rahim the dream and Nacho. Much better than Rahim the dream and Dirk Benstron.

Of the four Mays is the only dumb contract that you can charge to the Elway regime.

Yeah, I see your point. Shanahan would always pay questionable FA's a ton of money (Dale Carter, IHOP). Elway has kept the contracts low in these first few years.

Del Rio said in his presser that Danny Trevathan wants to be part of the Base Defense.

He also said that IamNacho has made the biggest jump in depth chart position.

IamNacho seriously the best nickname I've read in a while
Also, this D needs a playmaker at safety. Hopefully Duke can be a guy that can do that on the back end.
Also this d needs a safety who understands how to play deep, but that's a horse that's been beaten at the glue factory this offseason.

Really glad to see Inigo Montoya doing so well after the six-fingered man killed his father.

I think Darry Trevathelon could be the sleeper here. He was solid in coverage last year as a rookie and could be our best coverage LB now. If we play a lot of Nickel I see him getting more snaps that Evering.

Since when did Nate Evering do anything for the team. Tranny Danny, FTW.

Joel Dreessen out a couple of weeks

Another starter has suffered a significant injury. Starting tight end Joel Dreessen had a setback in his recovery from kneecap surgery and will be out at least two weeks.

with Dreessen coming off the knee injury and having this setback, I think it's probably a lock Denver keeps 4 TEs going into the season again this year.

Five Thoughts from Summer Scrimmage

2. The fans got a look at why the first-team offense will be difficult to stop. It drove to its score without even targeting Eric Decker, the team leader in touchdowns last year. The emphasis was on Wes Welker, who caught a screen pass for a 15-yard gain, and Demaryius Thomas, who grabbed three passes, including the four-yard touchdown in which he worked his way open in the back of the end zone after Manning was flushed out of the pocket by Lerentee McCray.
"He was kind of the third read and he's kind of coming across the (back) of the end zone," Manning said. "

"The main thing was that I wanted to score and get off the field," Thomas said. "It ain't easy to try to beat guys in the rain. You're out there slipping and it's hard to catch already."
But the rain didn't hinder him on his 29-yard catch up the right side from Manning, which saw him work a step past Kayvon Webster before grabbing the arcing pass and coming down at the defense's 21-yard-line. It was the longest gain of the night for the offense.
That drive belonged to Thomas. But other possessions won't involve him as anything other than a blocker. That will make the offense difficult to defend -- and nearly impossible for fantasy-football prognosticators to predict.

4. Friday, defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio reminded media that the depth chart is fluid, and today's first-reamers can be back down the depth chart by the start of the regular season. But Duke Ihenacho continues to justify his place on the first team, singlehandedly blowing up a sweep by Knowshon Moreno during the No. 2 offense-vs.-No. 1 defense portion of practice Saturday night.
Del Rio and Fox want playmakers -- which isn't simply about forcing turnovers, but singlehandedly destroying plays through speed and quick diagnosis of the offense's intentions. Ihenacho has flourished in this area and continues passing one test after another.
McCray has also earned attention. In the past two practices, he has broken up a pass, stuffed a run in the backfield and applied pressure to force Manning out of the pocket. Cornerback Omar Bolden also had an outstanding moment, shaking off a shove from Welker to break up a fade route to the veteran receiver, preventing a touchdown.

I've been in Lake Powell for a week what have I missed? Sounds like Nacho has his spot all but locked up thumbing through the last weeks articles and posts.

First depth chart released. Interesting Julius Thomas isn't in top 2 TE.

Peyton Manning also said he'll be getting reps with Lilja throughout preseason. I would bet the farm that Lilja starts game 1.

Without a doubt. He wasn't brought in as center depth. My biggest concern with him has to do with his size and strength. Dude was always an undersized lineman. If he was walking around at 260 or 265 when the phone rang, he's got to bulk up quite a bit in a short period of time or he's going to get rag-dolled.

Agreed, you don't bring a dude out of retirement to have him as depth.

I would bet the same thing although it really isn't going out on a limb to pay a guy 2 million and talk him out of retirement to be a backup.

He looked to be at a good size during his 1st interview at Dove Valley. Though I'm sure it'll take him a few weeks to get him game ready.

Exactly. Lilja isn't no Vallos. Lilja is a quality Offensive Lineman, who has 9 years starting NFL experience, taken snaps with Manning before, and has proven that he can play Center at a high level (during a mid-season switch). ManRam is a serviceable back-up, who can give quality snaps at OG in a pinch, and has never played Center in an NFL game.

Big difference. They aren't paying Manning $20M per year so they can break-in a 3rd string Center.
