  • Official 2017 Week 1 Preseason Thread - Broncos @ Bears

    Are you ready for some football? (cue music)

    Yes!!! Football is finally here even if it is preseason.

    Interesting, last year our first preseason game was at the Bears.

    So, tonight Siemian is scheduled to start though coach Joseph will have both play a quarter to a quarter and a half. Some of the 1s on the line will remain when the 2s come in with Lynch. Aside from the obvious spot at QB, a question that has lingered since last year, there are some other interesting things to watch for, a few are:

    Offensive Line: Can they pull it together, protect in pass coverage and open holes for the running game? Lots of new faces here.
    RB by committee: we are deep at RB so every snap for each player is important.
    WR, behind DT and Sanders the fight is for #3. Fans seem to lean toward Taylor but STs may give Latimer (yes him) or Fowler the nod. McKenzie is a lock and will be in on returns as will Latimer.
    TEs, lots of room to stand out here
    STs, Coach Oliver is looking for solid STs play with VJ. I think they'll be aggressive but not at the expense of laziness and blown lanes

    Lots of other things to watch for!

    FOOTBALL IS BACK!!!!!

    Wow, just saw the Denver Post article saying Miller to sit out tonight's game. Apparently they are trying to keep the injury bug we've had on defense from him. It's not an important game for him but I'll miss seeing him out there on the field

      He shouldn't play any of the preseason games.

        I'm ready for some bronco football. Here's to a successful first year as HC for Joseph. A successful year to whomever wins the QB gig and to the football gods to keep us healthy throughout the year. Also to all my fellow bronco fans on here may you all enjoy a good season with the team we all love!!!!
        :go:

          Thanks for starting this, Rastic.

          I'll miss seeing Miller, too, but see why they're doing it.

          Enjoy the game, everyone!

            Derby will be the best TE, assuming Butt doesn't play much this year

              I am beyond ready for some football. Too bad Von isn't going to play, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

                  Get the plays some on filed action, get them used to the speed of the game and get them out healthy. Don't care if we win, just don't get injured.

                      Absolutely. I am looking forward to watching some of the battles though.

                        I know what Von can do. I want to see the other guys.

                          That's the way for the no-fly zone to get started.
