He'll get plenty of time, you can bet on it. Usually with the first preseason game, starters generally play 2 series of plays in the first quarter. Then they are done for the night. As Tebow is currently placed at second on the depth chart, watch for him to come in halfway through the first quarter.

Looking forward to see several people tonight-Elvis Dumerville, I believe he'll be in a surly mood after sitting out all last season. And Von Miller, our #1 draft choice. What I saw last year from him I really liked! Julius Thomas? This guy might be the surprise of the draft from what I've been hearing from the Denver talk show yakkers I can pick up streaming the net.

Kickoff coming in a couple hours. Are you ready for some football??

I am so ready for football!!! I was dare-I-say-it sort of impressed with Quinn. He had some good numbers. I'm not sold on Tebow becoming the starter though. I prefer Orton to be the starter. Psyched about going to the game next Sat!!! and the rest of the home games!

I'm fine with Orton and the offense.

I'm concerned with the Broncos' defense and their ability to stop the run and to stop their opponents on 3rd and long. Until that happens, I'm predicting 5-11.

I'm sick of the Tebow hype... and I don't blame the player. I blame the media.

"Let's talk to Tebow about the game and see how he thought it went down." Tebow this, Tebow that blahblahblah!

How about shut the heck up and focus on the other 50 some players? How about talk to Jones, number 33 and see what he thought of his coverage on the last two plays of the game and whether or not he's got the skills to be Corner Back for the Broncos in the NFL?

How about start treating Tebow like the 2nd or 3rd string QB that he is? I'm sick of that hype.

It's not at all surprising to know all of this nonsense is being cranked out by one network- ESPN. Merill Hoge started all this nonsense, Jim Rome picked it up next (He is an ESPN employee with his own tv as well as radio show), now writer Rick Reilly is in on the act. It's like all these bohonks had nothing to write or *** about for the last few months and all of a sudden they go crazy.

McGowdog is right. And for ESPN's information, here is the scoop of what went wrong last year.

1. Our offensive line needs help.
2. Our defensive line needs help.
3. We didn't have a good north south runner.
4. We were 31st in the NFL last year in total defense.
5. Lots of distractions on the club ranging from a Bronco player committing suicide (Kenny McKinley) to losing our best player in training camp for the season (Elvis Dumervil)

Lots of problems.

Well, getting to the game. You're not going to get much out of a game when the first string players are only in there for maybe half of the first quarter. But it was a good start. You have the occasional blown assignments and dumb penalties which you expect in the first preseason game. A good one on that point was the penalty when Orton got the O down near the Dallas goal line. He was only in on the one series, then Tebow got in late in the first quarter. Moreno and Willis McGhahee got in a few good runs.

I was a tad concerned when the Cowboys went right down the middle on us early, still Denvers D held them to three points. Game actually was pretty even stat wise with time of possession virtually equal. Denver outgained on total yardage by 357 to 345. Brady Quinn got off to a rough start, actually stumbling on his first snap. But he looked pretty darn good on those 2 td drives, going 8 for 14 for 120 yards. All the media wants to carp on is Orton versus Tebow. How about a word on Quinn?

Coach Fox did the right thing by not feeding into the media hype machine by saying after the game that Tim Tebow is a "work in progress." He is. Tebow had some rough plays but had good ones as well. The 43 yard pass to Willis was a great throw. I'm not losing any sleep over the final drive with Dallas winning on the last play. By the third weeks game then we'll know what we have here as that is the game where the starters get the workout.

There was the penalties and blown assignments which one would expect from the first game. What was surprising was there was only one turnover in the game.

And it was good to get the season started.
