-Mike Anderson got injured (jk )
-Todd Sauerbrun got a lot of practice
-We forced an interception
-Broncos received much experience from playing in 120 degree heat
-Darrent Williams showed some flashes of brilliance on his kick returns
-We literally lost in every stat column
-Paul Ernster showed some rookie mistakes on kickoffs, including out-of-bounds
-back to the ol' turnover crisis
-Cornerback crisis: Champ Bailey, Lenny Walls, Darrent Williams OUT
-we lost to the Dolphins
-a lot of drops by the receivers
-was there a pass rush?
Anderson, who missed all of last season with a groin injury, departed in the first quarter with bruised ribs. Pro Bowl cornerback Bailey left in the third quarter with a separated left shoulder. ... The crowd was announced as a sellout at 72,324, but actual attendance was about 55,000. ... The Dolphins' point total was their highest since beating Detroit in the 2002 opener 49-21.

As far as the turnovers go We were up 3-0 before Jake started throwing picks late.
The problem was the O did nothing with the turnovers given them.
Overall we stunk...but the D kept us in until late third...and after that had NOTHING left.
Maybe THIS time Shanahan will learn that it is NEVER good to rest starters completely, unless they are injured. Jacksonville ring a bell?
The entire first string missed the last pre-season game, and it looked like they thought it was ANOTHER week til the opener.
I'm not completely down yet. The next two are MUST wins!
We blow those and we won't catch KC.

I'm extremely pleased with next week...one team in the AFC West is guaranteed to be 0-2, with a good chance of a second team also being 0-2.
