Gonna be very interesting to see how Kubiak prepares us defensively being that denver is where he made his living.

On a serious note...
Denver looked VERY GOOD tonight against the Titans (yeah I know it's only the Titans).

They scored pretty much at will!

I DO however, think that we can take them. Particularly with the "Kube".

Gonna be a game to watch...except I can't get games in Montana...so it's gonna be a game to hear...except I can't get any internet streaming sites...so it's gonna be QUITE THE GAME TO "READ."

NFL field pass offers a FREE trial run as long as you cancel before preseason is over.

I've heard some people speak negatively about the field pass. Do you use it? I realize that if it's free...what difference does it make? But I will want to listen to the games during the season as well.

The only games that ARE EVEN ON TV up here are the Seahawks games. So I get to watch the Seahawks and the COLTS tomorrow night.

Yippie!

I have been using it for 3 yrs... Its not a bad alternative when your not in texas....I was speaking in reference to the denver preseason game.... Its 29.95 for the entire season though.

When I lived in MD, I couldn't get Direct TV where I was, so I used the field pass for that one season. Works pretty well. Can be a bit disconcerting at times as it will go silent during some non national comercials and your never sure if you have dropped the signal or not until the sound comes back on. I could recommend it, if that is the only way to get the game live that you have.

I think we get knocked off of our high horse a little bit next week in Denver. Denver's looking really good so far from what I hear this pre-season. St. Louis and KC are looking mediocre so far. Should be interesting to see how we perform against a truly upper-echelon NFL team though.

Anyone else notice that we did'nt put Pickett in last night when the game was on the line? I think that kubiak believes we need to win these preseason games also. Im looking forward to watching the Denver game. I really think that the Texan players will want to win this one for their coach. Should be exciting.

I think that Denver will be a REAL TEST for us. BUT...with that said, we've NEVER had this much confidence going into this kind of a game.

I don't care what ANYONE says...preseason or not...these guys NEED to keep this rolling!!! I am very optimistic...and I am NOT an optimistic person! The boys are doing well and I like Kube's offense going into Denver!

Here we come!!!


I agree with you Mr. Luv-ya-blue in Montana, and I'm not a very optimistic person normally either! Although I've enjoyed these last 2 games and seeing what the Texans are doing, I realize Denver is a much better team than KC and St. Louis. This will be their toughest challenge yet (probably their toughest in the preseason), and if they go up there and win this game, WOW!
They'll really open some eyes then! Maybe even some in the media!

This is going to be an awesome game. Mike Bell was very impressive against the Titans. Defense, I hope will be well prepared for him.

I know it doesn't mean much being that it's pre-season, but it's a primetime game :cool:

As long as we are in pre-season, we will never open any eyes but our own.

And yes, Kubiak is definitely looking for wins, with the players he has been leaving on the field. I guess the logic there is, if Cody is on the field during the regular season for any reason other than a lop-sided win, then The Texans have bigger problems.

I am just glad we have been avoiding serious injuries!

I don't think he did that just because of the winning thing. Our offense really didn't have that many snaps last night as our defense was on the field a long time, and I think he wanted more tape on Sage and to reward him for his good play. Just guessing though.

That's what I was thinking. One of Kubes' comments prior to the game referred to getting a certain number of reps for some players although I think he was talking about the 1st team in the comment, it probably applied to the 2nd string as well.

The Broncos game will tell us a lot IMO. The third preseason game is the one where the 1st teamers play more/most of the game and the coaching staff puts in a real game plan. These two coaches know each other very well and what they like to do. I suspect that we won't come away with a win, because the Broncos are just the better team at this point in time, but I do want to see us give them a hard, well fought, close score tussel.

I agree that this is going to be the must see preseason game for us. I'm really going to pay attention to the battle's going on in the trenches. LOS control is going to be key to whomever wins and I hope we blow they buts right out of Mile-High.

I totally agree on this being a real test for both teams.

This is going to be a WHOLE lot closer to a regular season game, especially if both teams leave in most of thier projected starters in the first half.

I am also thinking that since both teams use similar schemes, this will be a players vs. players game more than strategy vs. strategy game.

If we're going to be competitive with the Broncos, were going to have to open up the play book a little more. I don't know how much of it Kub wants to reveal during the preseason. At very least, if more of the play book is not opened, Kub will be emphasizing the need for execution to near perfection of what he will make limitedly available.

What do you see as an advantage or strength over the Broncos?

If they have glaring weaknesses, the Titans were not the ones to be able to uncover them. There are questions about their WRs, one coming off injury (Walker), the other somewhat aging (Smith), and Leylie no more. Their rookie RB, although he has performed better than expected, is not a proven every down back and Dayne is a question mark as a partner in crime since he played so little last year. They'll be relying on "the system" to eek this year by as concerns the RB situation. The last question mark is Elam's reliability almost like our Brown. It will be interesting if we will be able to cash in on these "unknowns" of Denver.

All in all I think that this game will come down to who has the better defense or run defense that night. Very similar offensive schemes, both teams practice against it everyday. I'm kind of excited to see how well our defense does against an extremely balanced offense,( Mario will get his first sack). The only thing I'm worried about is Denvers defense against our offense, because if they shut down our running game which they see everyday we will have a tough time moving the ball. They didn't get a whole lot of sacks last year but they do get very good pressure and we all know how well DC handles pressure. I think this will be the measuring stick for us. It will be like a regular season game, most likely starters play a full 3 quarters. I wanna see how well Mario does when he gets a little more time to set up some moves.

We are VERY deep at receiver this year, I don't think that's a question at all. We are going to have a tough time deciding who to keep there because everyone has had excellent camps thus far. Our RB's this year Mike Bell/Tatum Bell are better than the Mike Anderson/Tatum Combo we had last year so I don't see any dropoff there.

Our biggest question is the D-line. We have a couple guys hurt and even at full strength they are relatively average at best.

I think Kube has a distinct advantage here as far as gameplanning. He knows everything about Denver, including our weaknesses. He doesn't need to review film. He coached it! We know very little about the Texans and their players.

I think the NFL is up for a real surprise this upcomming weekend. Denver better bring there A-Game because we are going to bring ours. I would give anything to see Cutler roll out into the path of Mario. Denver, this is not the Titans D, bring that weak ass TE up the middle play you ran 9 times against the Titans so D-Ryans can lntroduce himself to your rookie TE. Game-on

It should be interesting game,

But I don't think we'll bring an "A" game in the preseason.

Shanahan doesn't like to show people everything and although Kubiak already knows our base offense, Shanahan isn't going to show the rest of the NFL our playbook during games that don't count.

He's crazy like that.

Nice of you to drop in. Personally, I think we're going to have to bring our "A" game in order to match the Broncs "B" game. They obviously have been working with the offensive scheme longer than we have. I do think it'll be a good game to watch. I pray for an injury free game for both teams. Good luck:yahoo:

Hello!

Bronco lover here (don't hate me!)-the Texans are my new adopted Team (thanks Kubes!).

Sunday's game will be a good one-I think it's like looking in a mirror. We are looking better than last year, and I think it will be a tough game.

I liked Putzier when he was with us (you got a good one), and Carr should be a lot better with Kubiak's guidance.

Good luck guys-may the best Team win!:redtowel:

Thanks for the love.

The Texans have a long way to go before they get to the same level as the Broncos, but it seems to be a great organization to pattern themselves after. Looking forward to Sunday and the season.

I agree with you. I don't think Denver should bring it's A game. People have high expectations for the Broncos this year. I think you guys should also try to score as few points as possible so the rest of the NFL doesn't find out how many points you are capable of scoring.

We'll be happy to beat you up as badly as possible so people will lower their expectations. Then you can be like the Texans and surprise them all....we don't play you in the regular season....so I don't mind helping you out like that.

Good luck this weekend and this upcoming season.....and may MY team win!

Who cares about exhibition football anyway? Just ask the players -- the one goal for each and every player when playing a preseason game is simply to finish without getting hurt. Besides, I don't know about you, but I didn't buy season tickets to see Denver Lite, the Denver Texans or the Houston Broncos. Being a carbon copy of another team flies in the face of the independent spirit of Texas.

An interesting Denver (http://www.denverpost.com/sports/ci_4228011) take on going from OC to HC:

Kubiak appears a little uneasy at practice, as if he's trying to decide how to get involved, especially as former Packers head coach Mike Sherman - with whom Kubiak worked on the staff at Texas A&M from 1992-93 - and former Broncos assistant Troy Calhoun also work with the offense.

"One of the things you figure out real fast is how isolated you were in your own area," he said. "You're out there before worrying about moving the ball, and how to pick up this blitz, and how to prepare for that drill. All of a sudden, you're looking at both sides of the ball and special teams. I haven't watched kickers kick in 11 years, and now I'm watching the kickers kick."
