Horse Tracks: Who stood out on Monday?

New, comments

The third and final week of OTAs kicked off Monday, and a forgotten Bronco made an impact.

Tamme is still a factor in this offense, catching multiple passes from Manning and Osweiler in the last four practices. As we saw in New England last November, his value is as a quality replacement for Julius Thomas in the event of injury. Tamme doesn't need much separation to catch the football, which makes him ideal for Manning and Osweiler lofting the ball through narrow windows.

Brock Osweiler had a "consistent" day at practice connecting on a couple of long touchdown passes to Jacob Tamme and Greg Wilson.

Bradley Roby stepped in front of a short throw from Peyton Manning to Emmanuel Sanders and came away with a pick-6.

Winston Justice and Quanterus Smith are pushing each other in 1 on 1 battles.  Both have exhibited good footwork and technique with each winning some and losing some.

Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware ranked #4 in top 5 pass rushing duos (Bucky Brooks)

Rival Kansas City Chiefs boast the #1 duo according to Bucky.  After that are Robert Quinn and Chris Long from the Rams and Charles Johnson and Greg Hardy from the Panthers.

The NFL has already taken notice of our potential from the edge.  I absolutely agree with the rank and am not upset this duo did not rank higher.  DeMarcus Ware has come off of an injury-plagued season capped off by steady decline in his pass rushing numbers, and Von Miller is coming off a drama-filled season capped off by an ACL injury.  Both have a lot to overcome before setting their sights on becoming the NFL's "Bash Brothers."

Peyton Manning most clutch?

We grew up with Captain Comback himself.  Two-minutes on the clock, I'm going with John Elway.  BUT if we are talking one play that has to be made, I would agree with the statistician.

Who would you want under center in this scenario?
