Friday Practice Report
July 30th, 2010 - 1:07pm by Eric Detweiler


The Broncos closed the early report portion of training camp with a workout Friday morning, while welcoming first-round pick Tim Tebow to his first professional training camp.

Youngsters and select veterans went through their fourth “opportunity practice” without pads on a sunny morning at Dove Valley in a final chance to impress coaches and learn the system before full-team workouts begin. The players are off this afternoon before veterans report to the facility tomorrow in advance of Sunday morning’s first full-team practice.

Full-squad training camp workouts, most of which are open and free to the public, kick off Sunday at 8:45 am.

In other words, the level of physicality and competition is about to go up very quickly.

TEBOW TIME:

Tebow, who officially signed Thursday afternoon, was the first quarterback on the practice field, a few minutes before the 11 a.m. workout. He went through drills with Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn.

Drills for quarterbacks were quite similar to the first two days of training. The Florida product got a chance to toss balls to all early reporting wide receivers, tight ends and running backs, who ran a variety of routes.

However, most of the drills were focused on footwork and fundamentals during the hour-long workout. That included a period in which quarterbacks coach Ben McDaniels and coaching assistant Brian Callahan pretended to be dropping linebackers, while the quarterbacks took short drops or feigned play action and zipped passes to other staffers. Several times during these drills Tebow stepped behind the action to consult with McDaniels.

During the brief closing team period, which focused almost exclusively on run plays, Tebow did not get any reps under center. Orton took the first few snaps before Quinn took the last two. Tebow stood with the offensive extras behind the play beside Ben McDaniels. When the period finished, the Broncos’ second of two first round picks threw an arm around offensive coordinator Mke McCoy as they shared some last second thoughts before the closing huddle.

QUICK HITS:

•Jeff Stehle and Ben Garland have seen a lot of each other this week as the only two early reporting defensive lineman. They continued to get a lot of one-on-one instruction with Wayne Nunnely on Friday and spent a lot of time lined up across from one another in drills throghout the three days. One interesting drill from Friday practiced batting balls at the line of scrimmage. The players locked onto each other at the point of attack, while Nunnely fed balls into a JUGS Machine and one of the players had to swat it down. The good news is they should get some company on Sunday in the form of the rest of their peers, including new additions Justin Bannan and Jarvis Green.
•Wide receivers coach Adam Gase and vice president of team administration/assistant to the head coach Mark Thewes seemed to particularly enjoy a wide receivers drill designed to test receivers skills in traffic. With McCoy watching closely, receivers hauled in passes while Gase and Thewes slammed them with blocking pads and tried to dislodge the ball. Despite Gase and Thewes’ best efforts, the receivers won a majority of the battles.
•It’s clear that defensive coordinator Wink Martindale appreciated the opportunity to work with his young defenders this week. While it’s not easy to simulate game action practicing opposite garbage cans as linemen and operations staffers playing the skill positions, he stayed on his players throughout the week about the little things. He particualry seemed to enjoy pushing the linebackers through a drill in which they had to take their drops and then try to intercept a pass, focusing his players on proper footwork. “Practice your stance every single time,” Martindale said during one of the full-team defensive periods, echoing a mantra he’s preached throughout the week.
•Today’s special teams period focused on tackling. On one field, linebackers, tight ends and running backs had to break past a player holding a blocking pad and crash into a ball carrier as if they were going to form tackle them. On the other field, wide receivers and defensive backs did a similar drill in which two of them had to get past two pad-wielding blockers to corral the returner.
•Marquez Branson got an opportunity to showcase his versatility during the closing team period. On several plays, Branson lined up in the backfield as a fullback. Spencer Larsen, the lone fullback on the roster, did not report early, and McDaniels has said Branson is comfortable lining up in the backfield if necessary. On another play, Branson split out wide in the formation, further demonstrating why the player who spent last season on the practice squad could be a valuable and versatile piece going forward.

Tebow, who officially signed Thursday afternoon, was the first quarterback on the practice field, a few minutes before the 11 a.m. workout. He went through drills with Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn.

This guy is not a team player, what a douche.

Seriously, it's all about, "Pay attention to me! Pay attention to me!"

First QB on the field. Pfft. If he was a real team player, he'd be in playing Spades with his teammates.

I'll be honest. I'm already tired of this guy's crap.

Same here, all he cares about is money, he hasn't even taken a snap and he's already under my skin.

McDaniels doesn't know what he's doing.

I don't get how you guys don't see what I say about you all being whiney.

Anyways, it is good to see we finally have a QB with a good work ethic again.

I like to hear how Martinedale is using the jugg machine for the D-linemen to swat balls at the line is this a regular thing at camp?

agreed...

coming in early just before 11am?...

if he really wanted to be a team player he should've gotten there at 6am and done wind sprints for 4 hours and for the last hour, prepare the grass field for the 11am practice by re cutting it and pulling weeds...

what an a-hole...

Or showed up at 6 am to catch up on everything he missed while skipping the first two days.

Don't get what? That Tebow isn't even as dedicated as the QB McDaniels gave away and people are really impressed by him still? Yeah, I don't get why they would be. Cutler made it a point to be in camp on time even though the QB picked right in front of him didn't have a contract. Cutler was always first in and last out, not just once. Cutler didn't have an offseason with this team as he went with teammates to work in Atlanta or stayed here to work with coaches.

So you are right. I'm not sure why showing up 2 minutes early, after missing the first two days, would impress anyone in Denver. Even the anti-team player, Cutler, was more dedicated to his team.

Are you ****ing out of your mind? First of all, camp doesnt start till sunday. Secondly, are you criticizing tebow's work ethic? A guy CHAMP BAILEY already called the hardest worker on the team? A guy who, earlier this year, was on a high school practice field everyday firing passes to work on his motion while cutler was partying at the playboy club in vegas? I have a feeling if Jay Cutler worked as hard as Tebow, he wouldnt throw 100 picks every year. Maybe he'd get rid of his double chin and spare tire too. Wow, you pick bizarre swords to fall on.

too bad he's not a team player. Man, that really sucks. I mean, when Dez Bryant signs his contract before you, how can you be a team player?

Oh man... I hope a camp report doesn't get derailed by jhns Cutler crush. Cutler never hung around in the offseason, he did report on time, but jhns he has spent EVERY SINGLE OFFSEASON away from the city he plays in. He likes to go back to his college town of Nashville to party with his peeps.

Yup, it does say a lot when Dez Bryant shows he is more about football than you.

Not sure what you're looking for here. The idiocy kind of explains itself, doesn't it? Do we even need to break down jhiz' moron-a-thon anymore?

Nah, I don't think we should try and read too much into jhns' idiocy.

Obviously, Bryant is much more of a team player and dedicated to football because he happened to be the first 1st Round draft selection to sign. Makes perfect sense. /sarcasm

Any thread started about the team or Tebow will be jacked, that's a given now.

It's starting to become comical.

Sure, he goes home for a little break and then spends the majority of his offseason working with teammates and coaches. I get you guys hate him but there is no need to lie about the dedication he showed to this team up until the fighting with McDaniels.
