From the 4 a.m. Files: Songs from the Unwoken World

We were playing the Packers at Mile High. I knew it was a prime time game because the commercial breaks were framed by network aerial shots of an ethereal Rocky Mountain sunset with shafts of sun,...

[New Broncos safety David Bruton] lists gunner, or designated tackler, on the punt and kickoff teams as his favorite special teams position. "Being a big guy and people not thinking you can run that fast, you can get a shot at the returner," he said. "That's the fun part, knock the returner out or cause a big turnover, a big play in the game."

Learning from Madden

Defensive captain to be Brian Dawkins: "Though this obviously was a shocker for everybody that Jay's moving on, it's finally solidified that we're moving on. I am very, very excited about the prospects of moving forward. We're going to rally behind whoever is going to be at that position."

My conspiracy theory is that when the Patriots faced the Broncos last season, McDaniels' former mentor, Bill Belichick, must have pointed out some serious shortcomings in the young QB's game. And the results of that contest -- a 41-7 Pats win and a shaky game from Cutler -- tell me that Bill might have been onto something.

Searching the landscape, I believe that Mark Sanchez could be his target, which I wrote this morning. He resembles Matt Cassel in style and substance and has the smarts, the arm, the toughness and the decision-making ability to run the Patriots/Broncos offense. McDaniels must have a target, and for me Sanchez fits the profile he would want in his quarterback.

Living on the Shelf of the "Jerk Store"... "... because he spent so long on the shelf of the "jerk store" that is the Bill Belichick regime in New England, McDaniels decided to be a tough guy and assert his authority instead of doing what was in the best interests of his player and team. " from Tony Moss' column on TSN beautiful....

McDaniels knows exactly the type of quarterback he needs at the controls of his system -- someone who will stay within himself, who will be methodical and precise, who will allow big plays to unfold within the structure of the offense rather than gambling that he can squeeze the ball between defenders or simply throw it to a spot too far down the field for anyone to get to … except his receiver. The quarterback McDaniels needs is not Cutler and will never be Cutler. And Cutler is every bit as aware of this square-peg-in-a-round-hole dynamic as McDaniels.

Once Todd Bowles of the Miami Dolphins has his say today, the Broncos' search committee to replace coach Mike Shanahan will end its parade of candidates at seven.

Mike Klis says that we should have an offer on the table (or at least be down to no more than 3 finalists) by Monday.

Oh, and I finally figured out what's wrong with the San Diego Chargers: they suck the sweat off a swine's nipples. "Every single member of that team should be beaten. They don't have to be contributing to the rash of mediocre play in the NFL, but they're doing it anyway.... Drops, penalties, missed blocks. They have opportunities and they don't execute. It's little things, and no one on this team does them. You can have all the talent in the world, but if you're not disciplined, paying attention to the little things, and willing to pay the price, then you're not very good. That's the way it goes. You're not very good, Chargers. " .....from Yahoo Sports' blog "Shutdown Corner"

Broncos coach Mike Shanahan said his preference is to keep rookie RB Ryan Torain out Sunday to give him more time to come back from his elbow injury. But the Broncos may need him, given their dinged-up backfield. "We'll wait and see," Shanahan said of Torain's debut.

I believe that really good defenses will pressure QB Jay Cutler with a variety of blitz packages and force the Broncos to win games on defense. I don't see them getting a lot better defensively and once they slip in a somewhat-marginal division, they may fade late in the year.
