    The Denver Post stops just short of announcing Chris Simms as Denver's starting quarterback, but it will take an "overnight medical miracle" for Kyle Orton to get the call.

    Mike Klis reports that Orton's ankle has not recovered enough to play as of Saturday afternoon. The news hardly comes as a shock after Simms took all the practice reps with Denver's first team offense during the week.

    The Broncos are expected to use rookie Tom Brandstater as the team's backup quarterback against San Diego.

    This will mark Simms' first start since rupturing his spleen as a member of the Buccaneers more than three years ago.

    Looks like a decent pass rush and a solid run defence should net 3-4 int's.

    Don't count on it. It looks more like they'll line up in 2TE sets and run the ball at us.

    Yeah I'm not convinced. We are still weak against the run, they're gonna come out fired up and have the crowd on their side.....


    On the positive side they'll be completely 1 dimentional, I just hope we can stop that dimention.
