    Some Buffs' notes, Addison Gillam is projected to get 147 tackles this year, only a true freshman.

    They replaced Fresno State with Charleston Southern, and they got a waiver to be bowl eligible with 6 wins even though they played 2 FCS schools.

    Honestly, they can be bowl eligible. @ASU/@UCLA/@Washington/USC is guaranteed loss, but I feel like they can beat Charleston Southern/Arizona/Cal/@Utah to get 6 wins.


    Back to Broncos talk.

    Gillam can ball. Hopefully he represents MacIntyre's greater ability to find talent.

    Not really fair to say that Gillam is a true freshman. He was a 2012 recruit for SJSU that had shoulder surgery was going to hold him out of the 2012 season, so he went the greyshirt route and when MacIntyre took the job, he brought along Gillam as a recruit.

    Rockies pick up option on DLR. That's good news.

    Looked at Broncos schedule today. Later in the season we play Chiefs-Pats-Chiefs 3 weeks in a row.

    Sure, but while he was greyshirting, he had to work out by himself. He couldn't use the facilities at SJSU and work with the coaching staff.

    MacIntyre really needs to get a playmaker at TE, one of many reasons why we blow at the redzone. No threat from that spot.

    Champ Bailey was a full participant at practice for the first time all year today. Looks like he's ready to play against Jacksonville. It will be great to see him back on the field. He's a great tackler and the tackling in our secondary against Dallas was putrid. Champ won't put up with that arm tackle noise.

    Harris was limited in practice, not yet cleared for contact after his minor concussion but still could play. Practiced in his jersey and shorts but no pads.

    Woodyard and Ayers were in sweat pants and didn't participate in practice. Elway said on the radio that neither injury was long term but wouldn't commit to them playing this weekend.

    And only a few more weeks until Nuggets season. I hope our new coach and new players can lead us out of the first round for once.

    Mammoth season is too far away though, not until after Christmas.

    Not me...hoping to see a one-sided affair, in favor of the Broncos, with Peyton doing what Peyton does best.

    Teams on the goal line will hesitate a second or two the rest of the season just to make sure Peyton doesn't run the naked bootleg on 'em. :yo:

    I think Osweiler plays at least the 4th Q in this game, and we see a lot of Montee Ball. In fact I'm thinking of picking up Ball just because I am assuming he's going to get so much garbage time.

    Anyone else see the picture of the Coors Field re-design? I guess it takes care of a good chunk of the empties on any given night but geeze. I think its gonna make a beautiful park kind gaudy and ugly.

    I'm optimistic on the party deck. Coors Field is actually one of the oldest stadiums in baseball now so they need to keep innovating.

    I admittedly follow and understand basketball the least of the four pro sports so I really have no clue what to expect from the Nuggets. Every time they make big changes I expect them to play poorly and yet they find ways to remain decent. What do you guys think? Whats realistic for the Nuggets this season?

    As far as football, I'm pretty confident in the Broncos this week but it does worry me that they may be missing a lot of key starters on defense again. I'm glad Champ will be back but I'm hoping he looks like his old self, I need to see it to believe it.

    I am not a Nuggets fan so take it with a grain of salt but I honestly believe that they will face a pretty steep decline.
    They won't win 57 games again. They could make it as the 8th seed but when I look at this team I just can not believe how they managed to finish that high last year. So I am kind of in the same boat as you are. How did they do it?
    George Karl and a deep team playing really fast and energetic in high altitude maybe?

    I am not a big believer in Shaw. So I expect a real decline this time.


    The Broncos should win 100 - 3 this week.
    So it will probably be a close game...

    I watched the Cowboys-Broncos from their party deck. Still can't believe I saw that game for only $30. I paid more in beer than for my ticket.

    The Nuggets will be a playoff team this year. Probably in the 5-7 seed range.

    They brought in a lot of new faces but they did address some areas of need. They got better at the three point line and free throw line and they got better at rebounding. And they got tougher. Foye, Robinson, Arthur, and Hickson all address one or more of these issues better than the departed Kofous, Igoudala, or Brewer. Those four guys are all significant additions.

    Their perimeter defense is probably still the biggest question mark on the team. That's where they're going to miss Iggy and Brewer. Robinson can't cover anybody so Chandler is going to have to guard smaller players and Foye and Lawson are going to have to hang tough. Hopefully Fournier is ready to take another step forward this year.

    But our core is still intact. Lawson, McGee, Faried, Chandler, and the eventually returning Gallo are the big pieces. Andre Miller, Quincy Miller. Mozgov, Hamliton, Fournier, and Randolph are back.

    It's about whether the new coach can find a good rotation. This team is still one of the deepest in the league position by position.

    About the Nuggets - I think everything depends on McGee this season again. Koufos played way too many minutes last year.

    We burned Liufau's redshirt, had to be done. Wood was terrible. I'm high on Liufau, but I'm afraid he'll lose a lot of confidence playing behind this OL.

    the biggest problem with the line is wood finding pressure.
