GO BRONCOS!

All I have to say is the Saints are an extremely talented team and I don't feel extremely confident about this game at all.

I am a little shocked that your run defense hasn't played too well this season considering they have 4 1st round picks on the d-line. Darren Howard and Charles Grant can sure rush the passer and Denver's offensive tackles will have their hands full.

Denver's defense is currently 4th in the NFL in yards per game but they have struggled to stop the big play against Cincinnati and Atlanta and Champ Bailey can't cover all of your big three (Horn, Stallworth, Pathon). Plus, Denver's defensive line is struggling to get consistent pressure on the QB with Trevor Pryce injured and Bertrand Berry left via Arizona.

Anyways, I think its going to be a dogfight of the game but I love the fact Mike Shanahan has two weeks to prepare for it!

If you have time, please visit www.orangemane.com and talk some trash to my fellow Broncomaniacs. It's a friendly forum frequented by fans of various teams such as the Chiefs, Raiders, Chargers and Patriots and they always welcome game discussion with opposing fans.

Hi dude. I\'m a big Bama fan and I noticed you had 3 rookies in camp from Bama. Ahmad Galloway, Triandos Luke, and Santonio Beard.
Whats up with them? Are they on the practice squad? Does Luke play at all?
I know Galloway had a ton of potential but blew out his ACL during his Senior year and Beard has his own \"Ricky Williams\" type problems, and probably can\'t spell C-A-T.

I think in due time that Triandos Luke will be a pretty good #2 WR. You can\'t teach 4.3 speed. But I\'m sure he real raw.

Oh, brother ...

Welcome to the BlackandGold motel, DenverLB52. We\'ve been getting weekly visitors, some more welcome than others, but an interesting trend anyway. Must be an AFC thing...

Can\'t wish you guys luck (though some folks on here might), but I can wish you an injury-free whipping at the hands of our beloved dysfunctionals. I can also hope you guys come off the bye week just as ready to play as we were vs. the Chargers.

And Danno, had no idea you were a Bammer as well. This could be a rough football weekend ... but at least someone else stands to share my Iron Bowl pain.

Ahmad Galloway is no longer with the team. During his rookie year of training camp, the Broncos put him on IR with the intention of having his knee heal up and hoping another year of rest would do him wonders. Through the mini-camps, there were media members saying Galloway was looking good and his running style reminded some of Terrell Davis. During the preseason, he really didn\'t get much of a chance. Kind of got stuck behind the log-jam at RB.

Santonio Beard is currently on the practice squad. Is it me or is Santonio a RB with a gut? Look at his picture on the official team website, he has a fat double chin:

I thought Galloway outplayed Beard especially in the first Washington preseason game, but Santonio has stuck on. I hope Denver keeps him around because from reading his scouting reports and following his career at Alabama, he seems like he has the gifts to play in the NFL he just had some off-the-field issues (with pot, which to me is not a problem at all. I would burn one down with Santonio!). Plus, I think its a running back\'s dream to play in this system and love to see the late round underdogs succeed and become stars.

Triandos Luke made some big plays in the preseason. Made a huge 70-80 something yard TD reception against Houston. There was no doubt he was going to make the team. So far, he has pretty much been limited to punt return duty and some weeks, the Broncos will make Luke inactive and have Rod Smith do the punt return chores. Luke has been non-existent in the offense. It\'s somewhat of a suprise, but Darius Watts was always the best rookie receiver on the team from day one. I think more than anything, Luke is adjusting to Shanahan\'s complicated west coast offense which is drastically different from the run heavy, conservative offense at Bama. Watts played at pass friendly Marshall.

Beloved dysfunctionals! HAHAHA!

I think when fans say to an opposing one, \"I wish your team the best of luck\", its one of the most ludicrious and bullsh*t statements one can say. I just feel like breaking their face.

Anyways, thanks for wishing my team an injury free ass whipping, but I am hoping we spank you like you did to us back in 1988 (41-0, one of the worst Denver games ever and I am still pissed off about it! :bandhead: :mad2: ).

Let us have this one and I will root for you guys to run the table all the way to Super Bowl XXXIX

Super Bowl ... Saints ... Hee hee ... Ha ha ha ha!!!

Where (and what) did you & Santonio say you were smoking these days? Sounds like you must\'ve been down Jamaica-way when I was a few weeks ago...

Hey Denver guys. I noticed in the pre-season that Willie Jackson was on your roster at wide receiver. Do y\'all know how he did, or when you cut him, or if he had any good pre-season games? He was a Saint a couple of years ago, and we cut him because we wanted more speed. However, he was one of the toughest running receivers I\'ve ever seen. Never went out of bounds, and never went down without a fight.
