Another possible H-back for short yardage - a blocker-receiver, play-action player.

The Houston Broncos......We are Denver. And if that translates to the win column, I could care less.

Hopefully, this works out like it did for the "Dallas Hurricanes" in the early '90s!

How good is this guy? Any stats?

As for the Houston Broncos thing. I've kind of thought this all along since the unveiling of our jersey's. Don't they look strangely familiar.

I do think this means the end of Bruener. Oh and Joppru? Please make sure you look over both of your shoulders as you practice.

The tight end position is one of our Achilles heals for the past few years, and now finally we find some decent role players and put more emphasis on this position in the passing game. It's a sigh of relief really. Can you imagine the FB and TE actually getting passes thrown their way this season? wow, what a concept.

Joppru is arguably the most talented TE we have on the roster; he has been beset by unforeseeable injuries. If all the TEs reach their various potentials, Bennie could still be the cream of the crop. It is a good thing he's still on the roster to see if his current play can match the abilities for which we drafted him.

things like talent/potential you can throw out the proverbial window once the players hit the field and find their place with respective team its how effective the players are in actual game time that counts. While Joppru (when healthy) has those classic TE measureables, I'm not yet sold he fits in Kubiaks system as well as Putzier, Daniels now even Hape

Fine with me as well, I wouldn't mind an AFC Championship game at Reliant.

Now if Smith gets hired as GM...then we are the official Broncos/South.

I dunno.....but if Toro starts to morph into a horse, I'm gonna be real suspicious.
But I will take all of the Denver comparisons I can get. Happens to be one of
my very favorite cities, and its a great, great sports town especially football. And Elway - simply the best, I was always a huge fan of his.
As far as getting yet another TE, don't see how that can bode well for Bennie or Breuner, both of whom already maybe on the bubble.

Default Info on Hape

Drafted by Tampa in 97. Played in Tampa from 97-00 as H-back, TE and FB. Signed as free agent in 01 with Broncos. Played in Denver from 01-04. Cut by Denver last year at the end of training camp. Healthiest he has been in several years and has stayed in shape. Great point of attack blocker, with good hands and speed for pass catching.

I am not saying he isn't a talented TE but it seems more of GKubes boys are coming in and have an upper hand. Joppru needs to make sure that talent is shown is all I am saying.

Just off this info one thing I like is that the dude has stuck with his team for 3 years on teams that are known for being smashmouth.

4 years with each team. Putzier is more of a downfield threat catching the ball, but he can't block anywhere near as good as Hape. You need someone to blowup a LB or DE, Hape is your man. Plus he knows the playbook front to back.
