    Kaylore's Camp Report 8/10 AM - Marshall returns

    http://www.orangemane.com/article_760.php

    Camp was one of the hottest I’ve attended today but the emergence of some cloud cover late in the evening helped a bit. Camp also started thirty minutes later than originally scheduled for reasons I was unable to learn. Once things finally did start going it was one of pretty good practice over all.

    Brandon Marshall: I’m sure by now everyone has already learned that Marshall was out and working out today. Since that is the hot topic of the day, I’ll address it immediately. Shanahan informed us that MRI showed the injury healed save for a bunch of scar tissue. Scar tissue is painful but harmless and needs to be worked loose through using the area. Marshall has never been injured before so his understanding of playing with pain versus playing injured was limited. He had never dealt with that before. Shanahan made him go out onto the field again.

    He went through all the drills and scrimmages and made some nice plays. I was surprised how not-rusty he looked. Even with all the time off, right away he looked better than the other guys we had out there save Walker. I was totally amazed at how good looked. He was very fluid and his stride looks very good. He displayed great leaping ability. He wasn’t exploding off the line like he used to, and at times he seemed a little tentative, but he knew his routes and was getting open very consistently. Toward the end of practice he was running with a bit more confidence and beat Champ Bailey of all people on a deep post pattern that Jay threw. It was amazing especially for coming back so soon. I asked him about that play during his press conference and how it helped his confidence and he kind of gave me a “that’s juts what I do” kind of answer and then said Jay threw a good ball. The target game for him is Dallas or Cleveland. Shanahan said he’ll need two weeks to get back into football shape.

    Kircus, Lynch, Warren and Ryan Harris were all out of practice with injuries. I think Hamza was too, since I don’t remember seeing him. Most of those were precautionary and Shanahan said many would have played if it was a real game week.

    I’m going to just mention a few things.

    Javon Walker: Walker looks great. He is positive and was high-fiving fans when he wasn’t on the field and was just enjoying his time. He also made some really great catches was having a good day overall. Toward the end of practice he had some pain in his knee and they took him out for precautionary reasons.

    The defense has taken to singing a version of “Sexy Lady” by Yung Berg when they make a play. The chorus goes “Hey Sexy lady, It was nice to know ya. But I gotta move onnnnnnn.” The defense’s version incorporates a replacement of sexy lady for the player they just beat. So when they pick off Jay Cutler they all sing “Hey, Jay Cutler. It was nice to know you. But I gotta move onnnnnnnnnnn.” It’s nice to see the guys having fun with something like this. I know what you’re all thinking, and no: John Lynch doesn’t sing along.

    Defensive Line

    Tim Crowder: I’ve been noticing Tim Crowder more. He is playing very solid football. I like his motor. He gives a full effort until the whistle blows.

    Ebenezer Ekuban: He made some great plays today. He gets a lot of work playing inside, outside and on every down and distance. He had some sacks and blew up some plays in the backfield. He had a good practice today.

    Jarvis Moss: Moss is being brought back more and more into the practices and scrimmages. He is doing ok but looks about 75%. He over-pursued on a running play that Selvin Young busted back the other way for a score. He’s not as explosive as he was, but he’s making progress. I hope he can play in the Dallas game.

    Sam Adams: He really made a bunch of plays in the backfield today. He had a sack and blew up some running plays. He’s easily the most impressive of our defensive lineman because he’s so big and so quick and fast. His only down is that he fatigues easily.

    Amon Gordon: He is very good against screens. He broke to the outside on a screen and pretty much had the whole thing shut down before it got going. Another guy who is playing well but flying under the radar.

    Quarterbacks – They played very well today. I think as people are getting healthier, they are having an easier time in practice of finding guys to throw to. Ramsey is the best at using a hard count to draw guys off sides. Cutler is getting better at it, but Ramsey is the best and I suspect it’s his experience. They are using that more. Cutler missed a few reads where he should have thrown underneath, but made some good throws and is using his scrambling ability to buy time since the inside push from the D-line is still causing problems.

    Tight Ends – Scheffler is back and starting to get seperation and get open down field. He found a seam in the middle of the field where he was wide open and Jay thew it right in the numbers and he dropped it. He is coming back more gradually but his ability to pull away from the linebackers and safeties has me once again concerned about the quality at the Sam position. We’ll have to watch that in preseason games. Chad Mustard made some nice plays on the third team, as did Teyo Johnson. Johnson has poor body control and I think he plays sloppy at times.

    Running Backs – All the running backs looked good today. Even Selvin Young had some good, hard runs. Mike Bell had a good practice as well. He had some really nifty spin and juke moves that he is getting down and he looked quicker in this practice than in others.

    Defensive Backs – I want to talk about Champ a bit here. Bailey has had two days where he gave up big plays, which isn’t like him. I would say to this point that Bly has had a better camp than Bailey tot his point. Bly’s been more aggressive, more disruptive and more physical. One thing to consider is that the staff lets Bailey play off so he can spy the quarterback, but all the other DB’s have transitioned to a press coverage the majority of the time. I’d like to see Bailey press a little more. He has the size and athleticism to do it and it would really mess up the timing of the players. Jeff Shoate has supplanted Karl Paymah as the fourth defensive back. It probably had something to do with the slew of interceptions that Shoate has had the last several practices.

    A good practice. With the guys getting healthier and both teams finding their rhythm a bit, I think we’re right where we need to be going into our preseason games. We have a ways to go and the wheat will be sifted from the chaff in the coming days.

    Someone at the Friday AM practice popped out hip.

    Was at the Friday AM practice. Looked like he was 84.....years old and in the crowd. Training staff got the poor old guy out of there on the cart.

    Hope I didn't give anyone heart failure but I couldn't resist.

    A few things stood out while I was there. Sam Adams is large, impressive and disruptive. Did I mention he was large?

    Nate Webster had several notable collisions with RB's and looked good. He did lose his helmet twice.

    I did not see a lot of balls hit the ground. Recievers were making all the catches although I did not a lot of really challanging ones. I suppose that is a testament to the QB's.

    It was my first Camp visit and was entertaining. However the problem is that if the Def is making the play the Off is not and vice versa. Its hard to get to excited if you look at it that way. Can't wait until regular season starts.

    alright k, thanks again man.

    you have got me pumped from all these. i just cant wait.

    umm. i had thought from your reports, and maybe i just assumed, that paymah was doing so well, he surpassed dom as #3? did that happen? or he was just doing well, but still is #4 until now?

    the singing thing cracks me up, but i think that it the thing that most excited me when you typed it. it to me shows that we have gelled.

    remember the mile high salute, or the giants little ballen thing. usually when teams get together to do something like that, they are on their game and all are hungry to do their little celebration-whatever that may be.

    i would love to hear it during a game, or that even be our new crowd chant--ok maybe a little carried away now, but still thats awesome.

    Yeah right. Nice excuse for "Brandon Marshall is soft". Great to hear Shanahan forced him to suck it up, terrible to hear that he had to.

    why does his helmet always pop off like that?

    one of these days he is going to hit somebody cause a fumble, and people or going to try to recover his helmet instead.

    what a lunatic-

    i like him.

    As said in another thread and will say it again he's not the first player this has happened too. Also Kaylore hit nail on the head. If a player has never had to deal with this kind of thing a little prompting from the coach doesn't mean he's soft.

    Very true.

    If you've never missed time due to injury, how do you know when to sit out, and when to get back on the field? Shanahan just taught Marshall where that point is, and Marshall responded. If Shanahan has to do this again, then yes, there might be a problem. But first time? Nope, I think it was just a good lesson learned.

    Wait, that's an amazing idea!

    Imagine...the Pigskins...their helmet has the same pattern as the ball, you get Nate in there and the opposing side try to recover his helmet. Awesome.

    Excellent as always, thanks for the report Kaylore.

    After listening to the song, I would love to hear the the Bronco's version.

    I wonder if the folks down on Marshall understand what it's like to play with pain. Brandon Marshall, now let's see you do your thing.

    Kaylore said he's never been injured before. That's B.S. Everyone has been dinged up before and
    Now for someone who has a chance and is being counted on to be the #2 WR on what could be a Super Bowl team, to not realize that he can play is ridiculous.

    Everyone who has played football has been hurt. There is a difference between being hurt and injured, a quote used often by Shanahan.

    If you don't think he is soft, that's your choice, but I think he definitely is. I don't buy that he has never been injured in his life.

    Everyone has sprained an ankle and gotten a charlie horse, and known when they could come back. For Shanny to make him do it, wow is he soft.

    This is not the first time Brandon Marshall has ever been injured, or did he just get off the the Krypton Express?





    Brandon Marshall-WR- Broncos Aug. 12 2006 - 10:09 am et
    Broncos WR Brandon Marshall was seen running on his injured right knee after the game Friday night.

    Marshall is expected to undergo an MRI, but doctors found no evidence of a strained or torn ligament.

    Well, looks like this isnt the first time he has dealt with a leg injury, and when or not to come back.

    Brandon Marshall is soft.
