Maybe one day... the souls of the Browns will return to Cleveland where they belong. Cleveland fans deserve a better team than what the Bmore Ravens became. Maybe in time.

If the Broncos can beat that Raven team, then we can talk some smack. We just beat two Ohio teams. Nice. But 14 tough games ahead.
McGowdog is absolutely right. The two Ohio teams! Then Cinci turns around and clocks the Pack, WTH?

Just got in, was at the game, will comment at length tonight and tomorrow about the game. PLUS, I will talk about Shannon Sharpe, um, "dropping in" to say Hi! What a scene! Will post later!

The skydive was great, I missed it but they replayed it during the halftime ceremony. Elway, Mecklenberg, Braxton, and other alums were there. It was heartfelt when he got choked up before he spoke, very nice! You caould tell he really loved the Denver fans. They replayed his fake phone conversation where he pleaded for the National Guard to come because Denver was "killing" the Patriots! Classic!! The unveiling of his name in the Ring of Fame was so cool!! I'm glad I got to see it!!

Tailgaiting maybe three hours before the game, a Bronco employee from their community relations department stopped over at our section and talked for a little bit. He tipped us off in regards to what Shannon was going to do. At first I didn't believe it at all, then I thought better considering Shannon and his, um, i guess you could call it his way of having a good time.

The public address announcer played it up for what is was worth, and the crowd roared their approval. Shannon later said he had taken two previous practice jumps with the same paratrooper, as he was not used to that altitude. For those who saw the game but not the jump itself, just google in "Shannon Sharpe jump", there are several different you tubes on this.

Absolutely hilarious! And Shannon's halftime speech was impressive as well! It was pretty much a good day all the way around!

Comments on the Broncos/Browns game:

Great performance by the defense, they are looking better by the week. Elvis Dumervill with four sacks. What a game he had! One short of tying a club record.

Quinn had time at other times, but receivers were blanketed through the game. Rumor through the NFL channel has it Quinn might be on a short leash. Mike Nolan is doing his work as defensive coordinator, doing it well.

Special teams: I'm not going to throw Matt Prater under the bus for missing the 2 field goals. There was a nasty crosswind in the northwest corner of the stadium. On the second miss he should have aimed his kick more to the right, though. Both kicks didn't do bad till they got to the ten, then those kicks took off to the left like he was slicing a golf ball on the shot off the tee. And let me tell ya, that was a storm and a half that blew in, too! It came in as the first quarter was ending. (I drove in 4 inches of snow on Monday near the Eisenhower tunnel as I was going home). Kickoffs and the other fg's were ok!

Offense called a good game. Correll Buckhalter has served notice to Knowshon Moreno that if Moreno wants to start he better get to work at it. Buckhalter is NOT just going to hand it over to him. A great game by him, SOLID td run.

We're gonna have to get used to the fact that Orton can't throw long. But the one thing he is avoiding is turnovers. I'm sure the head coach has been pounding that into his brain since the moment he got to Dove Valley.
Brandon Marshall- don't know what to say about him.
Peyton Hillis- Didn't get off on the right foot by fumbling the opening kickoff, but redeemed himself with that td run. I wish he could get more carries.

Raider week this week. They are playing better than I thought. They gave San Diego a game and then some, and beat K.C. at the last minute.

Opening game of last year we started their season with a 35-3 clock cleaning. They won't be so accommodating Sunday. They'll be in a surly mood, for sure.

Always tough to play at Jokeland, Al Davis' misguided youth appear to be improving. Let's hope Elvis Dumervil and the D have another Orange Crush-like day against JaMarcus Russell.

GO BRONCOS!

Dumervil really seems to be a natural as a 3-4 OLB, and on a couple of his sacks Ayers was right behind him. Our linebacking corp is turning into a good group.

Quinn left a lot of yards on the field, but in time he'll be a very good quarterback.

I was absolutely elated when we hired him.

We're going to be easing Moreno into the role. We don't want to wear him down by giving him 20+ carries a game right off the bat.

Orton can make almost every throw you want, but the system doesn't focus much on the long ball especially at the this stage when the quarterback and receivers are still trying to get on the same page.

Brandon Marshall- don't know what to say about him.
He, like everyone besides Gaffney and Stokely, just haven't grasped the system yet. All signs point to a drastic improvement in attitude and work ethic though.

It's very obvious that he too is not comfortable in this new system yet. He'll improve with time though.

Actually we beat Oakland 41-14 in the opener.

I'm not too worried about Oakland. San Diego is full of holes and Kansas City is a rapidly sinking ship. I think Nolan and his defense will give Russell fits, and I don't see McFadden being able to run on us very well.

By the way, we need a consensus on JaMarcus Russell's new nickname. "Russell Stover" and "The Pillsbury Throwboy" are the two leading options.

35 to 3 sounded good though! Where the **** did I come up with that one? Yikes!

These senior moments- I tell ya!

Jamarcus Russell, a cannon for an arm. Only one problem, and it's the big problem. After 20 yards, he has NO idea where that ball is going to go.

One thing I forgot to mention: fortunatly there aren't any major injuries to report for the last two games. I guess the reason I say that is I still remember all the running backs who went down during the last half of last season. Read the line on this and believe it or not the Broncos are a slight favorite going in.

Denver can win if they play smart, be patient, with the O making zero mistakes. We've had success rushing the quarterback lately, that's the part of the defense that has surprised me, although maybe I should not be.

Go Broncos!

I had heard the opening line was a point in favor of the Raiders.

Well the 1st quarter is in the books and it's good to see the Broncos D make up for the Broncos' inability to punch it in on their opening drive from the 2. The Broncos scored after Goodman got the ball back and they look like they're gonna need it.

The Broncos just gave up a gr8 opportunity to pick up the fumble. They look like a bunch of stooges out there now.

But... if we can stop them on 3rd and 16, they're knocked out of field goal range and it's our ball.

Come on Broncos.
