Horse Tracks 8/5/09 - Jarvis and Ayers appear; STILL no Knowshon


DB - Day 5 Blog - Zach Eisendrath
Clemons and Marshall missed yesterday's practice, while Wiegmann, Graham and Torain returned. BDawk left in the middle of practice with some sort of physical issue. Meanwhile, Jabar Gaffney has apparently shown a knack for getting open in the end zone. The Slot Machine chose a little PJ for the daily playlist.

DB - Willing Himself to Stand Out - Chris Gentilviso
Gentilviso profiles second-year corner Jack Williams, who says he feels more comfortable this time around. Robert Ayers practiced and says he needs to work on his positioning. Plus, Jarvis Moss returned (probably once he realized he'd have to give back a chunk of cash if he retired). Unfortunately, Nick Greisen's knee injury landed him on IR; Denver signed LB Braxton Kelley to replace him. Kelley went undrafted after being a four-year starter at Kentucky. Three referees are in came for a few days, including Ed Hochuli, of all people.

DP - Krieger: Nolan needs time, talent
Krieger reminds us that Denver's defensive front is full of unknowns. He flails at comparing McDaniels' offseason moves to that of Shanny's in the past; he equates 2 different defensive backfields of Shanahan's to the '09 version. Dave, when's the last time Denver had four quality starting D-backs at the same time? Plus, he faults the lack of a pass rusher inside on the line. (If you need help understanding a 3-4, check out MHR, Dave). Finally, he says that blaming the DC needs to stop. Well, Shanny is gone so why would you assume that practice will continue, Dave? Look, I get it; there are question marks, and we all can agree on that. To the self-proclaimed ombudsmen - I don't generally have a problem with Krieger; but this is one sloppy and meandering column...
