Default u29 7/30 camp report

So i tried to tweet out a bunch of stuff during camp but here is the full write up. I only have a few minutes to get this done so it will be a bit all over the place. I am going by what I saw chronologically. Sorry. Also, I only really tried to focus on the question mark areas of the team. So not a lot on starting defense because we already know they rock. Same with DT and Heman, etc.


First things first- very few people at camp. Maybe 1200. You could absolutely show up 5 min before camp and get a perfect spot. Keep that in mind. Also, the practice itself seemed.....less structured or something. Guys just kind of lazily at times going through the motions. I completely attribute this to Peyton Manning being gone. I do not recall seeing that at all the last 4 years. Anyway- camp time:


Started out watching the Qbs throw routes to a WR. Under Center and shotty. Sanchez has best under center footwork. The first few throws he had sucked. He missed guys wide, short, or timing was off. All of the QBs were like this. I have not been worried about QB play as I feel sanchez is perfect fit for us (as I said before we traded for him).....BUt it started out ugly. TO be fair, the wr he had were not DT nor Heman, so maybe a small pass. Simian- was the most accurate on these throws. But he missed a bunch too. Same with Lynch. Sanchez does indeed have the weakest arm of the 3. No question about it. One thing Mark does that the other QBs did not do, was he really planted his back foot and drove off of it. Something I hope the coaches see for the other two. The qbs did get better with the throws and it was imo pretty even who did best. Rough start for all.

I watched the DL vs OL for a long while. The guys who stood out on several occasions were Ferentz, Mcogvern and RT justin Murray. Now they were going against the 2s and 3s, but they kept holding up well. Wolfe was wreaking havoc all day. Mcgovern was the only one to hold his own against him. Schofield just sucked. Everyone got by him. Shaq 2x, Shane, and Eddie yarbrough (who had a good day today). Mcgovern got some work at C and he did a nice job there. I thought he was a RG for some reason. but he did well. Paradis looked solid for the most part and the new RT from Kansas city was about average, maybe a little better than average. Which of course is light years ahead of schofield. Kyle Roberts wasnt half bad at RT. He bears some more watching. While these guys were going at it the QBs were throwing to WR....I did not watch as I presumed someone else probably was and would have a write up on that so I focused onthe DL and OL and LBS.

Gotsis who I really wanted to watch did not do much work when they were live. He only did the dummy and walk through type stuff. He had one moment where I had to check the number of the player as he was super quick of the snap and around the dummy. It was the only play of his I saw however, so I have no way to compare that speed with his other plays, but it was faster than other DL. So encouraging. He also was working with the 1s on the entire walkthrough period at the end of practice.

The LBS were working the sleds and 47- Frank Shannon blew it up 2 or 3 times. Completely! He also had a would be sack in the 11 v11. Good day for this guy. He may need to be watched more closely. Dekoda Watson, also had a strong day. He hit the sled hard and made a few plays in the 11 v 11. He also had a would be sack. Eddie yarbrough also caught my eye a few times. He had a real nice bull rush around the right side and he also has pretty decent speed. We are loaded at LB. Shane Ray looks a lot better and he did not do a ton of note. Just,.....he looked calm and understood what he needed to do. I was not high on him really, but I have a good feeling about him. He did not make any mistakes adn when the pads come on I have a feeling he will do well.

We are running a few plays that caught our defense off guard. That is a good thing. One which we ran a lot and worked successfully is a PA stretch backside screen to the TE. They practiced it a lot and ran it off of the running game and it worked well. We also are running the bubble screen a bit differently and it worked well too.

The RBS: CJ is the starter we all know that. He missed the holes today though. Or did not trust them to open. He did not have a bad day, by any means, but I saw the holes open before he did. I would have liked to see him explode through them in anticipation. he did not. Maybe just one of those days. He runs hard, but not full pads.
Hillman- looked the worst today, but he did have one of the nicer runs. He bounced all around and did well. He also had a really nice catch over the shoulder in drills. It went unnoticed, but the throw was off and he plucked it with soft hands. Most of his runs were for negative to 2 yards. But our defense was all over them today.
Booker- This dude- I cant wait to see him. Every Arm tackle did not slow him down even a little. Even CJ does not do that. When the pads come on I cannot wait to see him go. He had a fair few really good runs and one on a toss that was a bad toss from Lynch (I think) that didnt quite get to him. Booker scooped it up and reversed field. Split the two defenders and was gone. With full pads on, I think he would have gone all the way. I am most excited about Booker. He displayed good hands as well. Nothing to get excited about but no bobbles or drops.
Bibbs- He sees the hole or anticipates it better than all of our backs. He really does. He does not slow down either. Not a lot of power and is more shifty than anything. Its only 1 day, but if he keeps it up......You know what I am going to say- hillman- exit stage left.

The qbs had no time to throw today. None at all. On nearly every throw they made, they would have been sacked had the play continued. In a row, from bmarsh, shane, ward, harris, bj lowrey....This made judging the qbs hard for me. Here is what I came away with:

They were throwing deep passes all day today! and some real short ones. Not a lot of mid range.

Sanchez throws the riskier throws, but anticipates the wr better. He also likes to throw shorter. He loves the dump off.
Simian throws behind the wr more often than not. and he threw a couple into double coverage. His out route throws were pretty solid.
Lynch-looks like a rookie. Nice TD pass on a 30 yard Rainbow. Threw some solid darts out there. His head is spinning. He waits the longest of the three to throw the ball. Simian also missed a wide open wr on the right hand side of the field. I think he locks in more to his guy.


Other random stuff because I have to go:

Taylor- I think ive got him figured out. He runs at a 95% speed, right before the DB flips his hips he goes 100%. Sort of a lulls to sleep but his long legs and extra 5% catch the DB every single time. He was thrown to deep today 4 or 5 times. A few were overthrown, one was perfect but he dropped it (was double covered). He did nicely with the bubble screen.

The punters were doing pretty well. Both had big punts. Dixons best punt was better than Colquitt but its one day again.
Mcmanis missed 3 fgs in a row. Did not kick them hard either. Maybe that lazy thing I was talking about?? No pressure, walkthrough speed.

Benny Fowler- I love this guy. Catches everything. Bailed out sanchez and simian several times.
Latimer- did pretty well. Nothing amazing, but didnt have any drops. Made a great play when he was deep and double ocvered by TJ and the other S. Simien threw a terrible deep ball that was really short. TJ had the pick lined up for 30 yards at least. Cody out of no where came back and up over the top to break it up. He almost came down with it too. Was a great play.

Schofield worked at LT, RT, LG and RG......Hopefully more G than T. He got beat on nearly every single play at T. God he sucks.


Im being pressured to go. Ill answer questions or whatever later.

Thanks 4 the analysis!

Glad to see McGovern and Booker looking good as well as the youngsters at LB.

Everyone seems to agree that Schofield is as bad ever right now. Waste of a roster spot...

There are probably better guys for that out there. The guy is literally the worst OL I've ever seen play for the Broncos. I'm not even sure he'd make it in Canada. Elway and Kubiak are just being stubborn because they hand picked him as far as I can tell.

I think it's a good idea to remind folks that offenses are usually well behind defenses at this early stage of camp. It happens to every team, every year. So before we start getting all our panties in a bunch about the QB's not tearing it up right now, just remember, most QB's are not going to be looking great until near the end of camp.

He is awful and is only here because of his price tag. He is an Elway pick and Kubes inheritance.

Oh right, he's a third year guy. Time for Elway to let it go. There's zero potential to develop there.

There's also the fact that our offense will never match our defense no matter what simply because our defense is insane while our offense is mediocre.
