Update 10:07am EST. I knew I was forgetting something this morning as I put Tracks together...today is Broncobear's birthday. Happy Birthday, Doc! Hope it's a great one, my friend!

DB - Taking a Long Look - Chris Gentilviso
Josh McDaniels reminded the rookies that tomorrow's game is time for them to prove they belong.

DB - Day 13: McDaniels - Broncos TV

DB - Day 13: Orton - Broncos TV
I wonder if this guy gets excited about anything. Certainly doesn't matter, but Kyle doesn't seem to like talking to the press - like it's quite a chore...

LaMont Jordan returned to practice yesterday, while some of the rookies got to shave off their awful hairdos.

BMarsh dropped in on UCF's football practice on his way to Atlanta for trial today and possibly tomorrow.

SI - Postcard from camp: Broncos - Ross Tucker
Tucker thinks Kyle Orton's cerebral persona and supporting cast make him a good fit for the Broncos. He likes Josh McDaniels' thick skin but isn't sold on the front seven. Andre' Goodman apparently thinks Alphonso Smith will be one of the five-best nickel corners by season's end. Tucker expects a big year out of Knowshon and was impressed by Richard Quinn and Chris Baker.

LTC - Salivating for sacks - Brian Howell
Although Elvis Dumervil won't predict how many sacks he'll tally in '09, he says he may have more opportunities this year thanks to his move back to OLB.

Kyle Shanahan is proud to be the only Shanahan working this year, and he says his allegiance is still with the Broncos as far as being a fan goes, and that after Texans games he rushes home to watch Denver.

 

DP - Broncos' schedule: Potential woes with tough foes
Klis reminds us that Denver has a tough schedule looming (had you heard?). Apparently the over/under has dropped to 7 wins as the under bets have poured in.

Woody thinks we should worry about Orton's practice INTs. Plus, somehow it matters that the Broncos' opponents have better QBs.
