SB Week is the perfect time to hire Gregg Williams (yeah, that one)

Good Morning, Broncos fans! The two teams got back down to serious business on Wednesday.

Denver put on the pads to endure a cold and windy practice outdoors, with only DT Sione Fua unavailable, and Matt Prater a full participant after having recovered from last week's illness.

Meanwhile, Seattle went padless through a brisk practice, with RB Marshawn Lynch getting his customary Wednesday off. Three Seahaks and eight Broncos were listed as full participants.

According to Jarrett Bell (first link), teams are only permitted one padded practice for SB week, so that'll be it for the Broncos.
