Horse Tracks 8/20/09 - Are we making too big of a deal over BMarsh?


DB - Day 20: Marshall - Broncos TV
Brandon says he's not yet comfortable in the offense. He claims to not know what his agent requested from the Broncos. I don't know if it's just me, but this video doesn't make Brandon seem so "disgruntled" in my eyes. Obviously he's not happy with what happened the other day, but I don't know if we've got as much drama playing out as is being portrayed. Try to watch the whole video if you've got time; I'd like to know what you honestly think. Try not to go by snippets of quotes from the articles/columns that follow. I certainly could be wrong, as I was about Cutler; maybe he and McDaniels are just playing things down as they try to work on a trade. I just think BMarsh will be here all year...

DB - Day 20: McDaniels - Broncos TV
McDaniels plays down BMarsh's appearance on the scout team. He also says he's not concerned by Marshall's knowledge (or lack thereof) of the playbook. Also, McDaniels likes Kenny McKinley's work ethic.

DB - Day 20: Donatell - Broncos TV
Our first time hearing from Coach Donatell; he's impressed by the staff Josh McDaniels has put together.

DB - A Work In Progress - Gray Caldwell
A look at Kenny McKinley's performance against the Niners and his progress with the team. Meanwhile, secondary coach Ed Donatell thinks the new defensive scheme will help create more turnovers this year. We've heard that before, so we'll see...

DB - Day 20: A.M. Blog - Chris Gentilviso
The offense worked in two-TE sets a good amount, which I hope we'll see this season. Plus, big plays from Lee Robinson and Josh Bell.

DB - Day 20: P.M. Blog - Chris Gentilviso
The evening brought 5-wide formations. Britton Colquitt worked on FGs, presumably to show his dual value as a backup place kicker.

LTC - Scheffler settling into new role - Brian Howell
Tony Scheffler says he's being asked to do more as a player this year (read: blocking) and that it's time for him to "step up as an every down tight end" rather than just a receiver.

NFP - DMN: The Jets need a wide receiver
Lombardi doesn't see the Jets sending enough Denver's way for BMarsh. But he could see them overpaying for Dwayne Bowe of the Chefs.

DP - Dove Valley Days: Broncos rookies seeing lots of action - Jeff Legwold
Legwold considers the idea of Brandon Stokley and Jabar Gaffney both playing the slots in 4-WR sets. Meanwhile, Darcel McBath and Alphonso Smith have practiced in place of Brian Dawkins and Champ Bailey, respectively.
