From the Denver Post this afternoon:
“During the morning workout, the Broncos’ defense was getting the better of the Cowboys’ offense when tempers flared. Cowboys left tackle Flozell Adams yanked the helmet off Broncos’ defensive tackle Marcus Thomas and swung it in a threatening manner. Some pushing, pulling and cursing followed but order was restored without any punches thrown.”
That’s exactly the kind of intensity that this Broncos team needs to show. Players should be passionate about the job they are doing, and having the Cowboys in town adds extra fuel to the fire. If they bring that kind of intensity to each practice, the team will only get better.
The trash talking between Brandon Marshall and Adam Jones escalated today. After beating Jones in some one-on-one drills, Marshall said,
“I won today…Since he changed his name back to Adam, he’s not as good as Pacman used to be.”
“No, he didn’t get the best of me, man, they changed the route around every time. No, but it’s fun. On that go route he hit it big. On the comebacker he said he stuttered because I was coming up on him. It’s one-on-one, it’s an offensive drill. What we do in team drills and seven on seven, I’ll take it from there. As long as I’m around the ball (in one-on-one), I’m happy with it.”
And as long as Marshall’s performance transfers over to game situations, I’ll be happy with it.
