Week 1 in Review: Denver Broncos Vs. San Fransisco 49ers

Kaden PiersonContributor IAugust 15, 2009

Week 1 of preseason football was a very exciting expirence as a Bronco fan, new coach, new QB, half the team is brand new. I know all of you fans were saying this is the night where Orton will shine and quite those rumors. I'll admit I was disappointed in our new quarterback and his performance. I soon realized that this was his first game in orange and blue and Bronco fans shouldn't judge to quick because of interceptions that were because of comunication issuses and first game jitters. Think about it Bronco fans he will be nervous he has high expectations set by the famous number 7. Putting that aside and getting off of the negative topics, I saw very good things out of the 3-4 defense. They flew to the ball quicker and attacked the quarterback if only we had Brian Dawkins playing to see what he could do. Second on the positive side is Knowshon Moreno the four plays he was in he was quick and agile until he sprained an MCL and will be out 2-3 weeks. That gives Bronco nation something to look foward to because if he can stay healthy he reminds me of a young LaDainian Tomlinson. Chris Simms looked outstanding and could give Orton a run for his money down the line. All in all i look for the Broncos to win 9 or 10 games this season and to shock the country with a postseason appearance
