On the offense, Tim Tebow will see some time in Jacksonville and early in the season, in wildcat and short yardage situations. I believe Kyle Orton has the potential to have over 4000 yards passing this year. This is mostly based on the wide receiver corps he has; Jabar Gaffney, Brandon Lloyd, Eddie Royal, Demaryius Thomas, Matthew Willis, and Eric Decker. They all have great talent, being able to get open, and then making the catch. Our runningbacks, Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter, are coming back from injuries and I believe will be very productive. My best guess is 1800 yards combined for both of these great runningbacks. Our offensive line is developing, with two great bookends on either side of the line. From left tackle to right tackle, it goes: Ryan Clady, Stanley Daniels, J.D. Walton, Chris Kuper, and Ryan Harris. Harris is injured, but will come back soon. His backup is Zane Beadles, one of our draft picks. At tight end, we have Daniel Graham, Dan Gronkowski, and Richard Quinn, who are developing into good tight ends. Our team captains are: Kyle Orton, Chris Kuper, and Daniel Graham for offensive captains. Defensive captains are Brian Dawkins, Champ Bailey, and D.J. Williams. Our special teams captain is Wesley Woodyard.
I have good feelings about the Denver Broncos this year. I believe they will go 10-6, winning the division. I hope it is true this year. Go Broncos!

The Saints at halftime had improved on their offense, with Drew Brees, the quarterback, and Reggie Bush, the running back. It was a tightly fought game, with Martin Gramatica missing two field goals. Reggie Bush and Patrick Thomas put most of the points on the board for the New Orleans Saints, with three touchdowns between them. Drew Brees also made some big plays with one 74 yard pass from the Saints 20 to Robert Meachem. Bronco Marlin McCree #33 made the tackle at the 5, but Brees passed to Bush on the next play for a touchdown.
I liked how Matt Prater looked when kicking our field goals.
I didn’t like how the Saints, because of our three-man line in the second half, were able to make some big gains. We weren’t putting enough pressure on the quarterback with that three-man line.
Why did the Broncos win?
Both teams were doing good, but because the Saints' Martin Gramatica missed a 50-yard field goal, the Broncos won 34-32.
Best offense: Hard to say. Both teams were good at certain times
Best defense: Broncos, but Mike McKenzie made quite a few good plays along with an interception.
Best special teams: Broncos

Out of the three other teams in the AFC West, the Broncos have now beaten two and lost to none. Last week was the Raiders, this week with the Chargers. My dad and I watched the game together. LaDainian Tomlinson wasn’t doing as well as we expected because of a toe injury. Darren Sproles helped fill in running back along as a kick returner. The Chargers quarterback, Philliip Rivers also made quite a few short passes to get first downs. Early on, he threw an “interception” to Bronco Champ Bailey and because the cameras weren’t working, they had to let it go as an interception. Nate Kaeding, their kicker, also did a part in scoring for the Chargers, adding 3 to his unbroken streak of 15 field goals and PATs against the Broncos.
The Broncos, on the other hand, were also doing well in the 1st half. A lot of passes went to Tony Scheffler, Eddie Royal and Brandon Marshall, who beat Rod Smith’s record (14) by receiving 18 passes in one game. The Broncos mostly did 10-yard passes, and when we ran the football, we got usually between 8 and 15 yards with Selvin Young and Andre Hall.
Why Did the Broncos Win?
Because they were able to complete short passes to get the first down. They were able to run the clock down in the 4th quarter and still be able to get first downs. The Chargers were trying to run the football but since LaDanian Tomlinson wasn’t able to do much because of his injury, they had to do passes a lot of the time, and they didn’t pay attention to the clock.
The reason the Chargers were able to score was because when a hole opened up at the line of scrimmage, Darren Sproles was able to run it in for at touchdown along with the team’s kick return for a touchdown.
Who Was Better?
Better offense? Broncos
Better defense? Chargers
Better Special teams? Chargers
What about Shannahan’s Call?
I was surprised to hear him go for two because it was so risky. If they had gone for a PAT they would have tied at 37-37 and gone in for overtime.
The Broncos won, 38-37.
