let me say first i watched the game on nfl netowrk so i had to listen to the bronco commentators during the first half. i had to mute the tv and turn on some music, that's how painful it was to listen to them. ok, now to the game. offense 1. pillar and olson look old and slow. i hope stewart wins the right tackle job so bell can replace pillar. 2. i thought it was interesting that bobby wade got the start. i guess givens was held out because of his hammy. he looks to be voleks go to guy. 3. we all know volek is not going to beat you with his feet, but he has no escapability at all. 4. chris brown needs to get the ball more in the passing game. 5. i thought vince looked much more poised than he did in week one. he seems to have a connection with roby on the 15 yard out. 6. travis henry runs very hard, but he doesnt go very far. 7. lendale ran with purpose. *edit* ahmard hall had a great reception on a third and 3. he also blocked very well. defense i almost started the official fire jim schwartz thread, but i thought i would wait for the defense to suck in the regular season for that. 1. pacman loves press coverage and he's very good at it. 2. the defensive ends apparently have never seen a naked bootleg, because we didnt try to contain one the entire first half. 3. lamont thompson bit hard on a 4th and inches play action and gave up a touchdown. 4. peter sirmon has not regained his speed from 2003. he doesnt looked comfortable in the middle. he runs around blocks and got knocked back by tatum bell on the goal line. 5.david thornton runs like a deer and can bring the wood. 6.frankly, the defense has been all talk this off season. they look exactly like they did last year. shotty tackling and no heart.
