So its a day later and I'm just as tired as I was when I got home at 3:30 in the morning. The problem with night games on the road is that you get back so late. I didnt get to sleep until about 4 am. That sucks if you are like me and cant sleep well during the day. So I tell myself that I might as well get up and do something productive. I dragged myself down to get a little treatment on my jammed up neck. Blocking 300 pound men can be hazardous to your health. From there I went and got a massage then came home made some phone calls and got caught up on some things, picked the girls up from school and here I am. I'm drained and ready to go back to sleep.
Last nights game had a regular season feel to it. From the start of the week we prepared for this game as if it was a regular season game. From the kick off the intensity of the game was that of the regular season. Denver had a lot of build up energy and we all know why. For those of you that have been living under a rock, the reason why is Jay Cutler was returning to Denver. It was a hostile environment with the crowd booing, making it hard for us to hear in the huddle and at the line of scrimmage. The Denver defense was coming after Jay like he took something from them. Then again he did, a great quarterback. We just had to weather the emotional surge that they came out of the locker room with. It was also their first home game under the regime of Josh McDaniels. I think after to talking to a few of the guys out there its safe to say everybody is not on the same page with Josh Belichick, oh, I meant McDaniels. Did you see his sideline outfit? Do it remind you of someone? I played in Denver for 3 year with Shanahan and it always seemed that the players out there love playing for that team. I dont think its the case now and I'm talking about the guys who you dont see on tv.
We looked pretty good. After the first couple of series after we weathered the storm we got rolling. I really do think that we have the makings of a team that can do great things this year.
