Default 2010 Training Camp Day 13

2010 Training Camp Day 13 Blog
August 13th, 2010 - 10:29am by Gray Caldwell


The Broncos headed back to INVESCO Field at Mile High Friday morning for a practice closed to the public.

Just a quick note — all practice times are subject to change, and some sessions next week have been shuffled around. Be sure to check the Fan Information Guide for the full schedule, or call the training camp hotline — (720) 258-3709.

Eddie Royal and Marquez Branson were among the players back at practice after sitting out Thursday’s afternoon session. Despite wearing full pads, the team practiced at a walkthrough speed. For that reason, the majority of the highlights Friday morning came on the offensive side of the ball.


OFFENSE VS. DEFENSE

•In the first play of 11-on-11s, Mario Haggan pushed his blocker into the backfield to stop a run by Bruce Hall behind the line of scrimmage.
•Later in practice, Kevin Alexander sprinted into the backfield for what would’ve been a sack on Brady Quinn.
•Brandon Stokley got involved throughout the session, catching a screen pass for big yardage during 11-on-11s, hauling in deep passs from Kyle Orton and Quinn during 7-on-7s and punching it into the end zone during a red-zone drill, rolling over the goal-line after hauling in a pass.
•Hall found the corner on a run during 11-on-11s thanks to a block by Spencer Larsen.
•Lance Ball cut his run through a hole on the right side of the line, sprinting into the defensive secondary. Richard Quinn limped over to Head Athletic Trainer Steve Antonopulos after the play.
•Tim Tebow tossed a screen pass to Toney Baker, who sprinted his way for another big gain. Tebow spoke with Offensive Coordinator Mike McCoy afterwards.
QUICK HITS

•The team kicked off this morning’s session by running through pregame drills, focusing on their gameday routine that will go into effect Saturday at Cincinnati.
•At the start of practice, tight ends caught passes from position coach Bob Ligashesky as their teammates hit them with blocking pads to simulate tight coverage.
•During special teams drills, Britton Colquitt worked on punting from the back of his own end zone. He boomed it past the 50-yard line on each attempt.
•Toward the end of the session, the offense worked on starting a drive at its own 1-yard line. After two plays, Colquitt once again punted from the back of his end zone — this time to the opposite 37-yard line, where Perrish Cox was back deep to receive. On the next play, the team threw in a fake punt to make sure everyone was prepared.
Below are pictures from the session. The team travels to Cincinnati tomorrow.

Animated McDaniels readies Broncos for Bengals

By Shemar Woods
The Denver Post

Posted: 08/13/2010 10:55:40 AM MDT
Updated: 08/13/2010 02:07:51 PM MDT



Coach Josh McDaniels is eager to see how his running back corps of Toney Baker (40) Justin Fargas (42), Spencer Larsen (46), Lance Ball (35) and Bruce Hall (29) performs Sunday in Cincinnati. (THE DENVER POST | JOHN LEYBA)



The Broncos' first preseason game is fast approaching and their practice routine is beginning to reflect Sunday's date at Cincinnati.
Coach Josh McDaniels moved this morning's session to Invesco Field, where the Broncos practiced in full pads. The team flies to Ohio on Saturday.
McDaniels was more animated than usual, stopping team drills after bad plays to express his displeasure.
In other developments:

After sitting out of Thursday's practice, wide receiver Eddie Royal rejoined the first-team offense.

Linebacker D.J. Williams continued to wear his orange "no contact" jersey, but still worked with the starting defense.

Tight end Marquez Branson returned to during Wednesday's practice.

Veteran safety Brian Dawkins, who has been in and out of practice since training camp started, and rookie defensive linemen Ben Garland, did not attend the morning practice.
"There's some guys right now that we're not sure if we're going to take or not," McDaniels said. "That decision will probably be made within the next 24 hours, but certainly if the guys are healthy and ready to go, we're going to play them."

The team went through its pregame routine and special teams formations before preparing the offense and defense for Cincinnati's playbook.
"It was just an organizational thing more than anything else," McDaniels said. "Practice was normal. Practice didn't really have to do any being in the stadium as much as it did just getting ready for some things for Cincinnati and then working on some stuff we need to work on ourselves."

In the absence of Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter, Lance Ball took the first-team reps at running back during the team period. Ball rotated with second-year running back Bruce Hall and veteran Justin Fargas.
"I think they're so far ahead of where they would have been at this point, which is great for all of them," McDaniels said of the extra reps for Ball, Hall and Fargas. "Now we're going to get to go play someone else. We'll see how they react and how they carry the football."
Fargas, acquired early this week, said that he doesn't know how he will be used on Sunday, but McDaniels expects to get him some action.
"As much as he can allow us to," McDaniels said in reference to Fargas' playing time. "Probably more on early downs than third down at this point. We'll see how far he can push it between now and Sunday and he'll play accordingly."

The defense mocked the four-man front that the Bengals will run against the Broncos offense, while the second-team offense lined up in different offensive sets that the Bengals will run.
"We're realistic with what we're going to go there and try to get done," McDaniels said. "We're not going to do too much. We're going to be fairly simple and try to play fast and execute. And try to build from it no matter what happens."

All about the details at Broncos practice

Josh McDaniels and the Broncos staff are coaching players up on more than just the game-plan for Sunday’s season opener at Cincinnati.
Coaches spent nearly half an hour Friday rehearsing how the team would warm up on game days. McDaniels instructed player on how they could come out of the tunnel, which position groups would stand where on the field for their drills and how they would line up for their stretches.
So when you come out to Invesco Field for a game this season, know all that pre-game stuff didn’t happen by accident.

Ryan McBean a welcome leftover on Broncos defensive line

By Jeff Legwold
The Denver Post

Posted: 08/13/2010 02:42:33 PM MDT
Updated: 08/13/2010 03:15:26 PM MDT



Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow takes a shot of Pepto-Bismol from a trainer during morning practice Friday at Invesco Field. More photos. (RJ Sangosti, The Denver Post)



How the Broncos fared in Friday's training camp practice at Dove Valley:

Highlight of the day:
In a secondary that includes Champ Bailey and Brian Dawkins, it may be easy for some to overlook safety Renaldo Hill. But Hill, now entering his 10th season overall and second with the Broncos, is the one who is consistently getting people lined up correctly on defense, including several times Friday. When somebody has a pre-snap question at either linebacker or in the secondary, they are most often looking to Hill for the answer.

Lowlight of the day:
The Broncos offense spent a great deal of time on the run game early on in the workout and though the hitting was kept to a minimum, it's clear things are still a work in progress there given the injuries in the offensive line and in the backfield. The backs often looked tentative into the hole while the lead blockers and the ballcarriers often weren't on the same path at the point of attack.


Quote
"There was an awful lot of panic after last year's first preseason game, not in the locker room, but kind of surrounding what happened."
— Broncos coach Josh McDaniels on last year's lose to San Francisco in preseason opener when Kyle Orton threw three interceptions.

Position battle
As the Broncos head into their first preseason game Sunday night, Ryan McBean has done his part to be the team's only repeat starter in the defensive line from a year ago.
The Broncos expended plenty of time and money re-vamping their defensive line in the wake of their collapse down the stretch last season. But through the offseason and now deep into training camp, McBean has held strong at the right defensive end and figures to start against the Bengals.
McBean has largely made free-agent signee Jarvis Green a situational player in the Broncos' nickel package. Green signed a four-year deal that could worth up to $20 million if he hits all of the benchmarks.

McDaniels has said the Broncos will rotate the linemen plenty up front on defense, when the line up in Jacksonville for the regular-season opener, McBean will likely be the only one of the three who lined up there in last year's regular-season opener in Cincinnati.

Quarterback watch
Kyle Orton — Had a workmanlike day, but got plenty of work as the Broncos worked on what they will do against the Bengals.
Brady Quinn — Had a fumbled exchange fairly early in the workout; had a big play to Brandon Stokley in a 7-on-7 period.
Tim Tebow — Continued to work at the No. 3 spot, had a couple passes knocked away and couldn't connect with Stokley on a big play in team drills when the ball, a little behind Stokley, bounced off his shoulder pads.

Camp facts
The Broncos practiced for just over two hours Friday morning in Invesco Field at Mile High. Saturday they will gather at their Dove Valley complex before leaving for Cincinnati for Sunday night's preseason game. The next practice open to the public is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

No problem, with the injuries you would think they would give him a look at the ILB wasn't he pretty good in college?

He was pretty good, didn't he set a NFL record last season by starting at FB, LB and ST?

I'm not a coach but I'm think they want him solely playing FB this year.

Five Observations: Aug. 13 Practice


By Andrew Mason

The stadium practices have brought out the best in punter Britton Colquitt. (PHOTO: MAXDENVER.COM)

1. Both stadium practices the last seven days saw plenty of punt work, and Britton Colquitt delivered each time. Friday morning, he blasted back-to-back punts of 66 and 53 yards on plays where the ball was snapped at the 1-yard-line, forcing him to line up only 10 yards back of the line of scrimmage. Colquitt made a decent impression last summer, particularly in placement and preventing returns of any kind; this year, he’s added additional power to his repertoire.
2. If you want evidence for the degree of detail involved in NFL preparation, all you had to do was watch the opening 30 minutes of practice, when the Broncos practiced their pregame process. From entry to the tunnel to instruction on where position groups warm up, right down to learning where to sit or stand on the bench area, no detail was too minute to review.
The need for practice of something so mundane seems absurd when viewed from a distance, but the logistical challenges of getting up to 80 players in their proper spots make it a necessity.
“You’ve got to do this once every camp,” McDaniels said. “You come down, make sure you go through your pregame ritual, talk about what you’re going to do at halftime, pregame, in the locker room.
“It’s an organizational thing more than anything else.”
3. Safety Brian Dawkins was not on the field Friday morning, and linebacker D.J. Williams remained in an orange no-contact jersey. Darcel McBath filled in for Dawkins on Friday, and it would come as no surprise if that remains the case on Sunday night. McDaniels said that decisions on the status of players like Dawkins would be made within the next 24 hours.
4. The good news for the Broncos was that wide receiver Eddie Royal and tight end Marquez Branson returned to practice; neither practiced Thursday and the last previous glimpse of Branson was on a cart headed back to the Broncos’ headquarters building. But they couldn’t escape injury on Friday, as Richard Quinn appeared to hurt his left ankle when he was caught in a pileup blocking for Lance Ball on a sweep. Quinn did not return to action, but was seen jogging around the field several moments later.
5. Don’t look for Justin Fargas to play much beyond first or second downs on Sunday night as he continues to absorb the offense.
“The sub stuff (and) the (pass) protections are usually the last thing to come, but he’s working hard at it,” McDaniels said. “He’s got some familiarity with the terminology. We’ll see how hard he can push it and play him accordingly.”
Lance Ball remains the first running back up during team drills and is expected to start Sunday.

I'm sure it's just precautionary on B Dawk but Finally some McBath news

I just assume Colquitt has the job but I doubt it's safe

Maybe I'm reading into this but it doesn't sound promising or positive to me. I know that simple is the plan and always is during the preseason, but you always hear that during this time you expect the athletes to shine b/c it's all about talent when you can't rely on scheme. Sounds like he isn't too impressed with the athleticism on this team?

Camp is no different with regard to attention to detail. I love how much they prepare for the little things. Coach McD and his staff really do put in the time to be good in all areas of the game. The drills for blocking punts and FGs, never seen that at dove valley until he got here. There was a drill that Dave Campos was putting the Cowboys secondary thru a couple years back when we had the team vs team practices. I thought that was pretty sweet and good attention to detail. I didn't see it when I went to camp a couple days ago, but I did see it last year with our secondary.

Quarterback watch
Kyle Orton Had a unwhelming day, but got plenty of work as the Broncos worked on what they will do against the Bengals. Short passes and dump offs no doubt.
Brady Quinn Had a fumbled exchange fairly early in the workout; Brandon Stokley bailed him out in a 7-on-7 period for a big play.
Tim Tebow Even though he's the clear cut #2 QB on the roster, he continued to work at the No. 3 spot for some reason. He had a couple passes knocked away due to lucky plays by the defense and couldn't connect with Stokley on a big play in team drills when Stokley overran a perfectly thrown ball and had it bounce off his shoulder pads.
