Hope for the future

Injuries to key players have been a constant in the first half of the season for the Broncos. However, there's hope for the future as Denver looks to play five of its next six games at home and will see the return of many of the injured. Read about it in today's news reports.

Ferguson fitting in - Denver Post - Patrick Saunders
Wednesday, October 29, 2003 - When Broncos strong safety Kenoy Kennedy missed four weeks with a sprained ankle, journeyman Nick Ferguson took his place. As Kennedy healed, he watched Ferguson do a Tasmanian Devil routine on the field.

Looking to get well - Rocky Mountain News - Lee Rasizer
October 29, 2003 - The sky isn't falling for the Denver Broncos. When it does, you'll know it, because a cumulus cloud probably will land on one of their players and send him straight to the injury list with dust particles in his eyes. But at the midway point of the season, everything isn't all touchdowns and takeaways for the Broncos, either.

Thorburn: Despite problems, Broncos are making the grade - Daily Camera - Ryan Thorburn
October 29, 2003 - The Denver Broncos are 5-3 after the first half of the season, which means it's time for the Camera's annual midterm report card. Here we go: Coaching - Mike Shanahan the head coach has done a pretty good job this season. It's not his fault the organization had too much faith in 38-year-old Steve Beuerlein and drafted Deltha O'Neal, Willie Middlebrooks and George Foster in the first round. Oh yeah, it is his fault.

Offense makes good points - Boston Globe - Nick Cafardo
10/29/2003 - Complain, complain, complain. Certainly the Patriots' offense isn't the second coming of Kansas City, St. Louis, or Minnesota. It has had its problems. The Patriots didn't score a touchdown in a 9-3 win over the Cleveland Browns. They barely scored enough points to get by the Miami Dolphins, 19-13, in overtime. They were sluggish in a 17-6 win over the New York Giants. They were shut out in the opening game vs. Buffalo. How they could only score 17 points in a loss to Washington?

Tuesday, October 28, 2003 - We were given the week of the 13th off from practice after what seemed a fury of games, rehearsals and appearances. The timing was perfect for me as I encountered a hectic week at the office, allowing me to work extra hours. Nonetheless, I was still able to catch up on sleep and other chores I had neglected.
