09/02/2005 - Tempe, Ariz. - Mr. Bradlee's wild ride will make a final, pivotal preseason stop tonight. Who knows what will happen as fledgling in-state folk hero and Broncos backup quarterback Bradlee Van Pelt makes his first NFL start. "I don't know what's going to happen, but something's going to happen," the former Colorado State star said. "It's up to me to make it good." In the last preseason tuneup, in which nearly every Denver starter will be held out, Van Pelt is expected to start and likely play at least the first half tonight against the Arizona Cardinals at Sun Devil Stadium.

The Denver Broncos' new backup quarterback was asked earlier in the week for a simple prediction: Buffs or Rams? "I don't know," Van Pelt said. "I'm more worried about (tonight). I've got enough business to take care of on my own. I can't worry about my Rams right now. I'll worry about that on Saturday morning."
