Da Bears week and homecoming for our old QB. The game against the Seahawks was actually a good learning experience for what I’ll call a young team getting to really know each other and play together.
I know it wasn’t pretty..BUT…that’s really what pre-season is for. Fumbles kill and turnovers in general can ruin your season. Much of what we need to see on our side is turnovers and they come with a lot of preaching and practicing.
I don’t get to worked up over pre-season and if you’ve been following this blog for the last year or so you could go back and see that. Pre-season is a time to experiment with players, positions a bit and showcase a guy or two you might want to trade (did I just say that) yep that happens too. Seen it first hand.
It’s a business.
Oh, by the way too funny, Ks-BroncoGirl was talking about not wanting to buy a jersey because they get cut-traded-hurt or who knows what. I got a great idea. We start selling generic Broncos jerseys with velcro on the back and sell names separately? I’m a genius )…….right? Ha! Ha! Love it.
O.K. Cutlers in town so here we go. Boo him back to Chicago. ) That’s what wee suppose to do. Nice article today on Cutler and what did you really expect. They added Orlando Pace so that will help him. be interesting what else gets said, like Mike Klis mentioned going after him a bit. I was in Baltimore when John went back to play……….. UGLY CROWD.
I’m actually encouraged by last weeks game other than the left handed interception. I have to share some perspective here. When you play at that level you think your Superman to start out with. BUT even Superman threw right handed. I’d started laughing when I saw Orton throw left handed. I immediately said there’s the Superman coming out. And that’s not a crack. He probably did that somewhere in his career and was successful…BUT at this level there’s 22 Supermen on the field believe it or not and you just have to laugh because when he rewatches that on film everyone in the film room will be laughing…promise.
That’s O.K. though, I actually appreciate the fact that he thought he could do it…it showed me something I liked. Call me weird but I gained a little respect and had a good laugh over it at the same time. By the way DON’T do it again, once was enough. Maybe a shovel pass left handed or underarm but you throw like a girl left handed )
