It's not the bubble screen causes my annurisms. It's mccoys over use of them and his predictability of when he does.

2nd down and 7-8 = bubble screen. 3rd down 6-7 = bubble screen. Teams have tape of this. They figure it out and stop It. What does McCoy do? Calls another 9 bubble screens. Doesn't switch it up on down or distance or formation, same look, same play, same down and distance, every time. That's when I lose it.

Cecil been lying about Sampro since the day he was drafted. Long/short, he did the radio broadcast of the draft and hated the pick when it was made...they went to commercial and he came back after the break and said he talked to a "scouting buddy" on break who said "they just drafted a 10-year ProBowler".

Ever since then he's been trying to say he's always had Sampro graded as a 1st round pick.

Lammey is a fraud.

McCoy runs shotgun 88%, bubble screens are his idea of a running game.

Come on Sambrello! We need you to emerge as a good LT so we can take Rueben Foster at 20 and have yet another all time elite defense like we had when we won the super bowl year before last. I have a feeling that type of defense can be had again this year especially with the upgrades on the DL. You are foster to the ILB slots with Marshall and things get very scary for opposing offenses. Pass rush?check run stopping?check great secondary?check

I was just having a discussion with a buddy of mine. He made the point that he needs to make good use of being a "leader of men" because he's not an X and O's guy, but really as long as he's not exerting control he doesn't have to be, he just has to get the player to buy in and give 100 percent. McCoy (as much as I'm not a fan of him) is a great X and O's guy, as are many on this coaching staff. As long as he leads the players and lets the coaches worry about the X's and O's, we're going to have a fantastic year.

Yup, Since he was bright enough to surround himself with a very talented staff he puts himself in a position to do what he does best and that's have guy's running through a brick wall for him, leader of men. It's going to be great watching this team under Vance.

I think he made a mention of it yesterday (not sure if I quoted it) that he was "bored" at practice because as a head coach, he didn't have much to do when the team was practicing. In other words, he gets them ready to go and sets up the game plan, but isn't involved in the details of each group (at least that's how I interpreted it). So as long as the position coaches are all on the same page, that's a perfectly fine organizational structure.

DT88TheGreat

Definitely, he just roams around making sure it's being done right and he has some great one on one lines when he engages players. Him walking up and just standing with DT and said it feels good standing next to greatness (referring to DT). That is good stuff.

ENGLEWOOD - Matt Paradis played every Denver Broncos offensive snap last season and Connor McGovern played zero.

There is a backup plan this year that has one filling in for the other.

As Paradis recovers from offseason surgery on each hip this offseason, McGovern, a guard by professional trade, has been working at center.

Selected in the fifth round of the 2016 draft, McGovern spent his entire rookie season on the Broncosí 53-man roster but never got the chance to dress on game day Ė not even in game 17 when the team was already eliminated from the playoffs.

Sooooooo.......?

Although I forget the precise origin of the disagreement, the upshot is that there is no real consensus on how apostrophe+s is supposed to be used. Some people think that Biblical or classical names ending in 's' should only have the apostrophe added, some think that all proper nouns ending in 's' should only have an apostrophe added, and some think that it should always be an apostrophe+s regardless of whether the noun is proper or common. Consequently, the best thing to do is just pick one style and stick with it. Someone, somewhere, is going to think you're wrong no matter what you do. Clear as mud?

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Max Garcia wanted to make Ron Leary feel welcome and do the right thing for the team.

So even though Garcia started all 16 games at left guard last year, he offered to move to right guard, a position he played in spurts as a rookie in 2015 when he spelled then-starter Louis Vasquez throughout the season.

"I said I'd play right, just off the bat," Garcia said. "Whatever we have to do to be more comfortable."

Left guard is the position at which Leary started 47 games over the last four seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, so it suits him well

"Obviously, I'm more comfortable on the left side, because that's where I've been pretty much my entire career in Dallas," Leary said. "We talked about it [with Offensive Line] Coach [Jeff] Davidson, and that's pretty much the direction we're going right now."

When Broncos veterans returned to the teamís facility last month to hear from their new head coach for the first time, Vance Joseph offered a simple and concise message ó thereís no time to waste.

Work toward improving on their 9-7 season would started immediately.

When Broncos rookies arrived Thursday, Joseph offered a similar message. But his approach was tailored. Unlike in years past ó and unlike the routine of most other NFL teams ó the long-held rookie minicamp was scrapped for a three-day orientation.

The goal is to bring the Broncosí youngest players up to speed with Denverís system, its policies, league rules and the general life of being and acting like a pro before they attempt to do so on the field.

ďIn my opinion, the practices arenít worth it when you have guys on the field who havenít trained in a football place or hadnít met with our coaches at all,ĒJoseph said Friday at the annual Salute the Stars luncheon hosted by John Lynch at Sports Authority Field. ďIn my opinion, having an orientation and having media training, having note taking and security training, NFL policy training ó thatís really important for those guys. Before being a great player, those things have to be in place. Itís a good weekend. Itís split in half: Itís a day and a half of instruction as far as being an NFL player and a day and a half of practice.Ē

Best for both, I suspect: Garcia's strength is a greater asset and his slow feet a lesser liability at RG, while Leary replacing him as our primary pulling G immediately transforms that from another big weakness to another big strength. Plus a better more experienced starter is there to help with Bolles' growing pains (particularly against the stunts and other inside pass rushes that always leave Garcia chasing his tail and blocking air.) That's the kind of synergy lines need to excel.
