There’s always a conundrum with preseason football.

We love the fact that the Denver Broncos are playing games again, but then you remember it’s preseason football. It’s what one could call a catch-22. What’s different about this season as opposed to the last two is the excitement on offense. It’s a stark contrast to what the Broncos have put for the last two seasons, and fans want to know if that continues in actual games.

To add to the enthusiasm of the preseason opener against the Minnesota Vikings, the guys on 1st & 10 @ 10 pitched an interesting idea on Friday’s show that the fans can partake on in as well. Ryan Edwards, Andrew Mason and Steve Atwater all gave the Broncos-vs-Vikings battles they wanted to see the most. Not surprisingly, they all went with the quarterbacks. The segment starts at around the 10-minute mark of hour two.

For me, I want to see what rookie running back Royce Freeman looks like against an opposing defense that’s allowed to hit and wrap up. The Vikings defense is also pretty damn good, so it will be fun to watch. Will Freeman carry over what he’s done in training camp to the first game?

What say you, Broncos Country? What’s the battle you’re looking forward to the most in Saturday’s game?
