Week 2 has wrapped up and the Broncos are 1-1. There were no Bronco rookies that played very well as Derek Wolfe seems to be the only one playing very much.

Omar Bolden had 2 kick returns for 47 yards. All he saw all night was special teams work.

Derek Wolfe started again for the Broncos but was pretty invisible and did not record a tackle.

I am really hoping that Ronnie Hillman gets an opportunity soon. Knowshon Moreno's time could be running out after a costly fumble and Hillman has to be healthy and ready to go by now.


Andrew Luck showed why the Colts drafted him in his week 2 win against the Vikings. Luck got the ball in a tie game and led the Colts down the field for a game winning field goal. Luck went 20/31 224 yards and 2 TDs.

Robert Griffin went 20/29 for 206 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT in a loss to the Rams.

Russel Wilson got his first victory win going 15/20 for 151 yards and 1 TD crushing the Cowboys.

Trent Richardson had 19 carries for 104 yards and 1 TD helping his fellow rookie Brandon Weeden brush off last weeks poor performance. Weeden went 26/37 for 322 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Doug Martin had 20 carries for 66 yards and a TD as the Bucs continue to show faith in him to get the job done. 20 carries is a lot considering that game was a shootout in the fourth quarter.

Alfred Morris had 16 carries for 89 yards. Maybe he is just a product of the Shanahan running system that we all know so well. Either way, Morris has been a surprise and has come out of nowhere.

Shea McClellin is proving to be a great pick for the Chicago Bears.The linebacker had four tackles and one and a half sacks against Green Bay.

Rookie kicker Justin Tucker for the Ravens continues his perfect season and against the Eagles, nailed to 50 yard kicks.
