Fri, 27 Aug 2010 16:02
NFL fans who are eager to watch their favorite teams this upcoming Aug. 29 preseason game are definitely in for a treat as the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos prep themselves up. Here's the scoop on each team: Injury recovery vital for the Denver Broncos' comeback Recent injuries have definitely made an impact on the team's preseason performance. So far, the team's rushing attack is feeble. The Denver Broncos only averaged a mere 3.2 yards per rush during a couple of exhibition games, and they only gained 111 yards, which is ranked in the league as 30th. Among the Broncos who had experienced injuries just recently include LenDale White who injured his leg, and Tim Tebow who injured his ribs. Fortunately, these players are slated to come back to the field by next week. As for the return of Knowshon Moreno (who injured his hamstring) and Ryan Clady (who injured his knee), the date is still uncertain. Denver Broncos Line transition Aside from the recent injuries, the lineup is also experiencing a transition. This is one possible reason why the performance of the Denver Broncos are languishing. Rookies J.D. Walton and Zane Beadles have both been getting repetitions extensively during exhibition and practice games. This is so to speed up their learning curve and to expose them to the rigor of the NFL. The recent injuries and the lineup transition are two reasons why Denver Broncos are considered as the underdog for the upcoming Aug. 29 preseason exhibition game. 2010 Denver Broncos Preview It seems that the future performance of the Denver Broncos will rely heavily on when its injured players will all be able to go back to the field. Despite the fact that some of the team's players are not yet up and running, the team coach, Josh McDaniels, is hopeful that the team will be able to make a comback on the next exhibition game.

This is thanks to many things, including Tony Hills' performance as the team's offensive tackle. And because of such a great performance, Hills has proven that his patience and perseverance have definitely paid off. According to Hills, he had enough time to work on his game, sharpen up his techniques, and build his stamina just before the exhibition games during preseason. 2010 Pittsburgh Steelers Preview Despite the early success, the Steelers still have a long way to go. Plus, the team needs to improve its tackle and add more depth. The team's decision to hire Maurkice Pouncey as first-rounder (rookie) can have a great impact on the team's performance in future games.
