GETTING READY: Chris Kuper has been watching tape of Matt Lepsis from the 2005 and '07 seasons to get a jump start on his likely move from guard to tackle.

"So if I wind up kicking out, I'll be prepared," Kuper said.

He started at left guard last year, but with Ben Hamilton back and Montrae Holland coming off a solid first-year showing, Kuper is expected to get first crack at left tackle, where Lepsis started before retiring in January.

Ryan Harris is also in the mix but didn't even play in a preseason game as a rookie because of back problems. So coach Mike Shanahan apparently is putting his faith initially in the more experienced Kuper, who most recently played left tackle regularly as a college senior but shifted between the guard and tackle spots last preseason.

"I like it. It's a little bit different," Kuper said of playing tackle. "There's not much help. You're dealing with the best athlete on the defensive side, so it makes it a little more stressful, I think, too."

With only one other experienced tackle on its roster, Erik Pears, Denver is expected by many to select an offensive tackle in a deep draft at the position. Vanderbilt's Chris Williams and Boise State's Ryan Clady are first-round possibilities.

"It wouldn't surprise me, but it's going to be competition either way," Kuper said, adding he wants to play in the position that gives him the best chance to start, whether at guard or tackle. "I don't see anybody handed the job. That's not my experience here."

Again, the Broncos just aren't trusting their Drafted talent like they should.

They drafted three solid guys for their DL last year, all three can play, and still Shanarat's out there trying to buy a DL.

They drafted a guy who's a prospective LT, a guy I liked, Ryan Harris, and they can't trust him to man down the position.

They're doing it to themselves, man. They're doing it to themselves.

And it's quite beautiful.

They're zone blocking so somehow he'll look better than he is.

Can't hide zone blocking chumps in man-on-man pass protection.

Almost as amusing as watching the Broncos miss the playoffs two years in a row.

Guess I'll be the bold one and say that I think they will draft either Clady, Williams, or Alberts at #12.


Combine that with the Samie Parker signing, and well, you've got a humongous turd in the punchbowl.

Yep. This is some pretty clumsy sleight of hand.

How many posts do you have to have before you can actually start a thread.

Im trying to start a thread on here and other sites. Who is a better coach Marty or Norv. Because charger fans think Norv is better.

Will someone post it on here for me?
