Horse Tracks 9/28/09 - Broncos dominate Raiders; Hamilton, Harris, A. Smith, Hillis injured


Denver rookie head coach Josh McDaniels doesn't have a grasp on how to build a team - John Clayton, April 23rd, 2009

Good MORNING, MHR Friends! Honestly, I don't care who's on the schedule. When you give up a mere 16 points over three games, you have a real defense. The 2009 Broncos defense has allowed the fewest points through three weeks, is now #1 in yards allowed, #7 in rushing yards allowed and #2 in passing yards allowed. The Broncos gave up  a puny 137 yards of total offense yesterday. Last time these two met, the Broncos allowed the Raiders 318 yards. However you look at it, whether the Broncos go on to make the playoffs this year or not, there is a different feel to this team. The culture and attitude have changed, and the future is bright. Josh McDaniels, his staff and Brian Xanders know what they are doing.
