TEIF (that’s E for Elway if you didn’t know) Lard 9-17-10

Happy Friday, Broncos fans! Unfortunately, the Broncos are not exactly getting back to health just yet. Missing from practice yesterday due to injuries were Ryan Harris, Chris Kuper, Laurence Maroney, Darcel McBath and Wesley Woodyard. Jamal Williams missed practice but not due to injury, while Eddie Royal was limited and Demaryius Thomas again was a full participant. According to Jeff Legwold, Ryan Harris will not play on Sunday, while there is a chance Kuper will.

Here’s the NFL Films preview of Sunday’s game versus the Sea Chickens. Next, the Playbook guys take their look.

DP - Although Laurence Maroney passed his physical, the thigh injury that kept him out of two preseason games and last week’s opener forced him to miss practice again yesterday.

DP - LJ looks at the Broncos’ new-found deep passing game. However poor the Broncos’ running game looked on Sunday, the Sea Chickens held the Niners to even less production in their opener.

DB - Gabe Hiatt interviews LG Stanley Daniels.

DP - Legwold responds to a question about the Broncos’ current image. Kiszla thinks that Denver is no longer the Broncos’ town. Agree? Disagree? Obviously, I have no clue from out here.

DP - Big Play Shay has been reinstated by CBS Sports after the temporary protection order against him was withdrawn.

DP - In one of his most accurate and genuine columns of recent memory, Woody climbs into the sewers that are the Denver Post Online comments and is horrified.


If the Dolts can manage to trade Vincent Jackson by next Wednesday, his six-game suspension will be reduced to four games. Kevin Acee examines the possibilities.

After allowing a punt-return TD on Monday, the Dolts next face the Jags’ returners, who of course ran right through the Broncos’ special-teamers last Sunday.

I don’t know about you, but basically everything I’ve ever thought about Raiders, Chargers and Yankees fans was confirmed yesterday. First off, the Dolts’ home opener will be blacked out because San Deeahhhgo (settled by the Germans) just isn’t that classy. Same thing in Jokeland. Last but not least, it basically turns out that all Yankees fans are criminals. Okay, maybe that’s not quite what the article said, but I’m going with it.

Hue Jackson wants Jokeland to chuck it more.

Other Stuff

Pat Kirwan doesn’t really think Jay Cutler is going to make it through the season alive with that awful O-Line. Of course, we already knew that because Ted told us.

Randy Cross utilizes the end of the Cowboys/Skins game to share some excellent insight into O-Line play.

Jack Bechta tells us who’s really plugged into the NFL.

Dan Levy of the Blogger Fantasy Network makes an argument for the NFL allowing bloggers to embed video on their sites. Obviously, I think this would be a great idea!
