--WR Ed McCaffrey has only 1 catch for 5 yards in two games. The problem is he isn't getting many opportunities. He has been used more as a downfield blocker, and since he does that so well, look for that to continue.
Shannon Sharpe isn't worried about facing Raiders LB Bill Romanowski, who gave
him a dislocated elbow last November. "I don't have any grudges. It's not a
situation where me and Romo were best of friends before that happened," Sharpe
--RB Quentin Griffin has been inactive the first two
games, but don't be surprised if he's inactive again even if the Broncos are
concerned about Clinton Portis' health. Griffin hasn't played since breaking his
leg, and the Raiders game wouldn't be the place for him to break
--RB Clinton Portis said the Raiders haven't seen his best
shot. He carried just 14 times for 50 yards, and 12 times for 52 in two games
vs. Oakland last year. Look for the Broncos to use Portis early and often this

--WR Rod Smith has 84
catches for 1,000 yards against the Raiders - the most against any opponent. He
figures to add to that total with Oakland's secondary in disarray.
