Honest to god, I had a dream last night that Alphonso Smith got cut and McDaniels was fired almost immediately after. Which is weird, since I don't even really care about the Broncos besides my man Orton. So half of that came true. Just thought I'd share that.

He was traded, not cut, though I believe he would've been cut if it came down to that.

Kid's got plenty of talent, but seemed lost out there. Hope he gets with the program in Detroit, otherwise it will be game over for him.

Branson was cut, not IR'd:

Other players cut: LB Kevin Alexander, WR Britt Davis, TE Riar Geer, S Kyle McCarthy, OL Seth Olsen, DL Jeff Stehle, LB Worrell Williams
There also seems to be some confusion about whether Stokely was cut or on IR.

TE (3) - Graham, Quinn, Gronkowski

WR (6) - Royal, Gaffney, Lloyd, Willis, Decker, Thomas

OL (9) - Clady, Harris, Batiste, Kuper, Beadles, Walton, Daniels, Hochstein, E. Olsen

DL (6) - Bannan, McBean, Smith, J. Williams, Fields, Thomas

LB (8 ) - D.J. Williams, Haggan, Woodyard, Mays, Ayers, Moss, Hunter, Atkins

DB (10) - Dawkins, Hill, McBath, Bruton, Bailey, Goodman, Cox, Thompson, Vaughn, Jones

ST (3) - Paxton, Prater, Colquitt

Are you calling my dream a liar?

edit: I will say though, I always thought Smith would be a nice fit with Schwartz, he's got some Pacman in him, he's just completely failed to show it.

What I really like from these roster cuts is that McDaniels seems able to accept when he makes a bad decision and can move on from it. I think one of Broncosland's big fears was that he was too arrogant for his own good - but I think this proves he is not.

Now, we just need someone to help him with his first round picks, and we should be okay (cause the later round ones seem okay).

He was expendable because of good drafting this time around. Win some, lose some.

Broncos claimed Andre Brown off of waivers from the Giants.

This likely will mean Hall/Ball one of them will be cut.

Brown is a good get! We thought we could sneak him thru waivers and then sign him to our PS. But since you guys need RBs, I think Brown, if developed can be a good player.

I just heard on the radio that Harris will be out for a few weeks with a sprained ankle. Great player, unfortunately he seems to be made of glass.

Overall, the injury situation is just brutal and we haven't played a down in a real game yet. Not encouraging.

Starting a rookie center, rookie RT and a journeyman LG does seem a tad worrying, especially when you factor in our LT will be starting off the season less than 100% fit. I hope Graham is healthy, cause I think he may be spending a lot time standing next to Zane on sunday.

Any news about Moreno? I havn't heard anything since he didn't play the last preseason game. Is he supposed to start and take most of the carries?

I am having scary thoughts about a preseason opener in 90 degree heat where MJD runs for 200 yards, we get beat by about 20 points, and we lose both Clady and Moreno for half the season after re-aggravating their injuries.

I hope it is just preseason jitters.

How much action does Eric Decker expect to see this year? I thought that was the Broncos best pick of the last draft & a guy who could hold down a starting role there.

It is a really excellent question. I dont think any of us really know how the receivers will get used early on, apart from Gaffney being there every down. The coaches seem willing to give Lloyd a chance, and Royal should start in the slot. Willis and Decker have been great in the preseason though. I get the feeling that there will be a lot of rotations until it sorts itself out.

anything i'm missing?
that's pretty much the gist of it.

royal and ayers both looked better today than they did all of last season. our offensive line provided little push, not a huge surprise considering we had three guys starting their first ever game.

definitely a disappointing loss, especially since the things we struggled with today were the same things that stung us last season. i'm still pretty optimistic about the season. the running game should improve when we get harris back and as our young guys become better adjusted to playing at this level. i don't see us repeating a lot of the stupid **** we did either, e.g. buck's fumble, mcbean's two facemask calls within a minute of each other, quinn looking lost and forcing orton to waste a timeout...

that's pretty much the gist of it.

royal and ayers both looked better today than they did all of last season. our offensive line provided little push, not a huge surprise considering we had three guys starting their first ever game.

definitely a disappointing loss, especially since the things we struggled with today were the same things that stung us last season. i'm still pretty optimistic about the season. the running game should improve when we get harris back and as our young guys become better adjusted to playing at this level. i don't see us repeating a lot of the stupid **** we did either, e.g. buck's fumble, mcbean's two facemask calls within a minute of each other, quinn looking lost and forcing orton to waste a timeout...
Important aspects of the game

Opening drive:
third and 1 at the Jags 18 - holding call on Beadles
third and 11 - Orton sacked for -8 yards (line let everyone through)
4th down - punt instead of FG because of the above.

third drive:
second and 6 at the Jags 32 - Buck runs for 7 yards to get the first down and fumbles

Score was still 0-0 at this stage and we were totally dominating the game.

Jax had 4 scoring drives - 3 were set up by a punt or kickoff return that started their drive close to the halfway line, while the other one had two face masks to help them along the way. Most of our drives all day started inside our 30 (and a few inside the ten). Special teams were not special at all.

The defense was okay, but no turnovers and nowhere near enough pressure on Garrard (especially compared to what they got on Orton).

Orton looked awesome when he had time - the o-line leaked badly most of the game. Considering we were in the redzone 3 times with no points, we should have won this game.

We're starting this season with a bad combination of injuries and rookies holding down starting jobs. The OL is the most impacted - 3 first time starters, Clady is still a work in progress, Harris is out and Kuper got dinged up again. Given that both our decent RB's also missed most of camp with injuries, it's a ******* miracle Moreno got the yards he did on the ground.

On defense, I'm concerned about Dawkins in the passing game. He looked bad out there at times. McBath could cover this responsibility, but of course he's injured. McBean's double facemask **** was unacceptable and IMO had a big impact on the outcome of the game. The DL as a whole needs to provide more pressure up front and play with discipline.

Special team coverage was hideous. As always. It's getting pretty ******* old.

The good: Orton (apart from the final series), WR's, Ayers, Prater

looks like our rushing game, outside of one carry by moreno, was still useless. looks like our linebackers were garbage (though they held mjd to <100, lewis looks like he ate them up in the red zone). but on the plus side, it looks like royal played a big part in the offense... orton looks to have played well?

anything i'm missing?
^ at least we didn't win ^

Also I didn't get to watch, but I'm pretty sure I saw the one good run by Knowshon that he talked about. And damn is he slow. Like he looked like a high school RB. Zero explosion on that. WTF.
