Default Rookies step up, 10 rookies played in Jets game

Consider this past Sunday a big step for the Broncos' rookie class.
Denver's two touchdowns came from first-round draft picks quarterback Tim Tebow, on a 5-yard run, and receiver Demaryius Thomas, who caught his second career touchdown pass.
Three rookies, center J.D. Walton, right tackle Zane Beadles and cornerback Perrish Cox, started, and receiver Eric Decker and cornerback Syd'Quan Thompson played on special teams and in substitution packages. Thomp son also intercepted a pass.
Undrafted rookies Cassius Vaughn, Kyle McCarthy and Kevin Alexander played on special teams, meaning there were 10 first-year players on the field.
"We've got a lot of young guys stepping up, and we are trying every week as a rookie class to improve," Tebow said. "So, I think the longer it goes, the more experience that the young class will get and the more improvement you will see."
LB Briggs promoted.
The Broncos activated linebacker Diyral Briggs off the practice squad Tuesday. Briggs takes the roster spot of wide receiver Matt Willis, who was placed on injured reserve Monday because of a broken foot.
Briggs has been on the Broncos' practice squad since the second week of the season after he was released by San Francisco. Briggs played in four games for the 49ers last season and played in the 49ers' first game of this season.
The Broncos have only five receivers on the 53-man roster and two receivers on the practice squad Britt Davis and Eron Riley, who was added Tuesday. Denver still has two practice squad spots open. Riley was released from the Carolina Panthers' practice squad last week.
Beadles keeps spot.
Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said Monday that rookie Zane Beadles played well enough at right tackle Sunday against the Jets to keep his job in the starting lineup ahead of veteran Ryan Harris.
Beadles started in Harris' place for three games at the start of the season while Harris was injured. Harris started against Tennessee and Baltimore, but coaches opted for Beadles last week.
"It's a competitive situation," McDaniels said. "If it makes them both better, that's a great thing for our team. I think Zane didn't play perfect, but he held up in most instances."
Brown claimed.
Former Bronco running back Andre Brown was claimed off waivers Tuesday by Indianapolis. Denver released Brown last weekend.

If you don't think Josh McDaniels is rebuilding the Denver Broncos at warp speed think again.

It is amazing to have 10 draft picks make you team and even more amazing they are playing and doing well. It shows how depleted we were.

BTW the 9 players on the field thing could be do to so many rookies on the team. A stupid mistake yes sign of bad coaching no.

The rebuilding word only comes up when we lose, as a way for the Mcdaniels supporters to cover for their beloved coach

So they're NOT rebuilding? This team is a completed work?

Interesting.

Dude if you don't think that the fact that 32 of shanny's players (many were starters) were out of the NFL to moment Josh cut them from the Broncos roster than there is really not much to say to you.

Of course they have to rebuild. That's what happens when you trade your QB, WR, and TE.

The rookies are playing well but they haven't stepped up that much. We are 2-4. This is still good experience for them.

You conveniently forgot to mention the 32 Shanahan players that are selling cell phones at their local Kiosk.

When you have 10 rookies (three starting) seeing playing time what would you expect the record to be when you have played 4 very good teams

Maybe for you.

here's the part that he and you are missing;

They never played another down in the NFL after the were released from the Broncos - that's 32 guys and many were starters that were not good enough to make even Detroit or the Raiders

It's also what needs to happen when your franchise has basically zero progress for a decade.

But hey, I get that some people just love the numbing comfort of familiar mediocrity.

What record do I expect? An improved one. The season is still young though. It is McDaniels choice to have almost a quarter of the active game day roster be rookies. Shanahan did the same in his last year here and that team improved by one game over the year before. That team also had the injury problems this one does. This is all I have to compare it to so I expect at least a one game improvement over last season.

And you are missing the fact that this is normal. You are also missing the fact that the 32 number came from a bloated roster because lots of guys were injured that year. There were many players on that roster that Shanahan didn't even want, he had to go pick up guys like Tatum because of injuries. They didn't take those 32 from a 53 man roster...

Sorry I will need more that a statement by Mediator (as knowledgeable as he is) to convince me that NFL teams routenely cut 32 out of 52 players every year and none of them ever play again.

Think about it, that's 3/5 of your team out of the league every year.

Sorry not buying it.

Well there is your problem. That 32 didn't come from a 53 man roster. It came from about a 73 man roster because we had so many on IR that year.

With respect to med, there was nothing in those posts that would dispel anything. We have the turnover from our team, we need the rest of the league to declare anything either way. Med may very well be right, but there were no hard comparisons.

I'll put your demand another way;

You expect an improved record from a team that had a HOF coach, a franchise QB and a pro bowl receiver (in your world) all replaced with a new HC that never worked as a HC before, all new coaching staff with the DC new to the position too. A new defensive scheme and a new offensive scheme. A brand new roster with 10 rookies seeing time and three starting.

You really think your expectations are reasonable six games into the season?
