DB - Floyd a Hall Finalist - Gray Caldwell
Floyd Little took a giant step toward the Pro Football Hall of Fame yesterday, as he and Dick LeBeau were announced as senior nominees. Can you imagine The Franchise and Big Play Shay going in together next summer?!?!?! A Denver weekend in Canton?
DB - Floyd Little - Jim Saccomano
Sacco shares some of what Floyd Little meant to the Broncos.
DB - Tuesday: McDaniels - Broncos TV
McDaniels praises Russ Hochstein's versatility (sound familiar?), as he can play every line position, plus TE and FB. Plus the team is looking forward to playing at home after two weeks on the road. McDaniels actually says the Seahawks forced the Broncos to pass more than planned. Lots of dancing around Brandon Marshall questions...
DB - Tuesday: Sounds from the Locker Room - Broncos TV
Quotes from several players after a rain-shortened practice...I am crushed to see that Mario Haggan walks around with a Yankees cap. What is he THINKing??
DB - On the Right Track - Zach Eisendrath
On progress, Hochstein and turnovers.
DP - Hochstein latest Patriot to join roster - Mike Klis
Klis says Hochstein's arrival (for the same 7th-rounder New England had sent over in the Le Kevin Smith trade) may put Kory Lichtensteiger and Mitch Erickson on the bubble.
DP - Haggan would love to put a hit on Cutler - Mike Klis
Haggan says the fans would love to see a sack of JC. Chris Simms is thankfully off crutches already, although he is not expected to play again in the preseason. The Broncos may sign QB Ingle Martin as presumed preseason fodder.
DP - Marshall's deal doesn't distract - Jeff Legwold
For what it's worth, Kenny Peterson and Correll Buckhalter downplay the effects of BMarsh's situation in the locker room.
ESPN - Receiver, Broncos in a whirl of hurt - Jeffri Chadiha
Chadiha is expecting the BMarsh situation to only get worse.

But will he play??

Submit your questions for the rookie in the middle
ESPN Insider - Kicking off my Insider blog - Adam Schefter
Schefter has heard rave reviews about Josh McDaniels, including a prediction that "McDaniels is going to be one of the greatest NFL coaches ever." Meanwhile, a silly Bears fan tries to make the case that JC's receiving cast wasn't all that great because it had Eddie Royal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TJ - Brandstater roughed up in first NFL game - Chhun Sun
Tom Brandstater's hometown paper on the rookie's debut.

NFP - Very Fake Al Davis - Ray Gustini
Another gem from Gustini...
SI - Preseason Week 2, Winners/Losers - Don Banks
Banks acknowledges Orton's progress but reminds us that Kyle didn't throw any deep passes. Interesting point, one which crossed my mind, too.
SI - MMQB Mailbag: 10 rookies who've impressed; Cowboys video fallout - Peter King
What a shame. Peter King lists 10 rookies who he likes, writing about nine of them. For the tenth one (Alphonso Smith), he mentions only the draft choice Denver gave up for him.
ESPN - LeBeau among many worthy candidates - Len Pasquarelli
Pasquarelli thinks the HOF should include more assistant coaches.
