    A few few Training Camp updates

    Broncos | Bailey wearing a harness for precautionary reasons
    Sun, 30 Jul 2006 11:27:05 -0700

    Denver Broncos CB Champ Bailey (shoulder) said he is still wearing a shoulder harness for precautionary reasons. I don't think I need it but just trying to be careful." Bailey said he would like to contribute on offense this season, but as always, that is up to head coach Mike Shanahan.


    Broncos | Shanahan says Brandon could miss a few days
    Sun, 30 Jul 2006 11:25:35 -0700

    Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan said Sunday, July 30, he expects S Sam Brandon (hamstring) to miss two or three days because of a hamstring injury.


    Broncos | Shanahan impressed with M. Bell
    Sun, 30 Jul 2006 11:24:13 -0700

    Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan said Sunday, July 30, he is impressed with Broncos' rookie RB Mike Bell. "Mike's having a heck of a camp. He really has stepped up and has been very impressive. A lot of players see him making plays that they haven't seen for awhile. He's right in the mix."


    Broncos | Shanahan discusses Meadows
    Sun, 30 Jul 2006 11:20:23 -0700

    Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan said he expects OL Adam Meadows to report to the team Monday, July 31, and practice Tuesday, Aug. 1. He expects Meadows to compete for a starting spot. "He's been a starter in the National Football League, and he's been out about a year and a half. He's had some physical problems, but he's feeling pretty good right now. We'll get him a chance to get in here and compete with the rest of the guys."

    Sounds like I'm REALLY starting to get that crow served to me for all the times I've hated on Mike Bell

    Thanks, and I didn't get why you hated on Mike Bell in the first place.

    Seems like typical coach speak to me...but, it's not like we aren't in dire need of a 3rd back. Hopefully Bell or someone else can really step up.

    Shoulder injuries

    If you've ever had a dis-located shoulder you know they pop easier and easier everytime. They can take for ever to heal, even with surgery.

    I was just mad at all the people that never seen him play and made him out to be the next TD...

    It seems like he is turning some heads though, and I'm glad to hear that

    By the way, the title of the thread is a type-o -- it should be "A few MORE training camp updates"

    Coaches usually don't talk about undrafted free agents like that... If they are ok, they'll be unmentioned. If they are bad, they'll be unmentioned and cut. If they are very impressive, the coach will talk about them.

    I don't know, but it seems to me like Mike Bell is rapidly gaining on Cobbs for the #3 RB roster spot.

    The various reports from outside observers have also been talking up Mike Bell. If it wasn't for all the other backs sounding mostly mediocre, I might not give this much credence. But since he's the only one standing out, he could have a legitimate shot of coming out of nowhere.

    It wouldn't be the first time it's happened.

    I read an interesting observation elsewhere as to why Mike Bell has been so much more up for it than the other backs. The temperature has been in in the high nineties in the afternoon at camp. Mike Bell coming from Arizona would be much more accustomed to going at it all day in this kind of heat.

    I never bought into the Cedric Cobbs talk at all, there is a reason he was cut from New England and it wasn't because he was a legitimate starter in the NFL. It's because he STUNK. I'd much rather see a kid like Mike Bell on this team over Cedric Cobbs.

    Good post, and with Champ--better be safe than sorry! I'd hate to see something bad happen to him!

    Good point.

    We all know how the heat can affect our Broncos.

    Week 1 2005 anyone?

    I have to say I agree with you there.

    There's only so many players who have been tagged with the label of failure elsewhere that you want on the team.

    We already have Dayne, a guy who I'd like to see succeed but who struggled before coming to the Broncos. Can't be easy getting rid of the sort of mentality that comes with those sort of experiences. I'd rather have a young kid come in whose full of confidence and dying to prove himself than have too many guys on the roster whose confidence may suffer a dip as a result of having some previous burdens to contend with.

    You need to chomp him in half like you did Quinn.

    Huh. Interesting idea. If true, maybe the rest of our backs will be better than they look right now. If not true, then I hope Mike Bell keeps looking this good.

    But really, our running backs should be able to handle a little heat. The receivers and corners are the ones doing sprints every play and if anybody should be feeling it, it would be them.
