Closing Down Camp

Posted Aug 19, 2011

Friday morning's walkthrough session was the last one of training camp. The team takes on the Buffalo Bills tomorrow night at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Just like that, Head Coach John Fox's first training camp in Denver is over.

The 2011 edition had plenty of highlights -- and plenty of fans: a Dove Valley-record 1,597 fans came to watch each practice.

Now the team's focus is squarely on the Buffalo Bills, who head to the newly named Sports Authority Field at Mile High for Denver's preseason home opener tomorrow night at 6:35 p.m. MDT.

“I just think getting the gang better," Fox said of what he'd like to see on Saturday. "I’d like to see us execute better -- less penalties, a little bit better execution in the red area offensively, a little crisper tackling, a little better executing on defense.”

Fox said he expects the starters to play through the first quarter and into the second, depending on how the game goes.

The Broncos and Bills match up again in Week 16 during the regular season, but Fox said the game is so far away, the teams don't have to worry too much about tipping their hands.

“There’s a little bit that goes into that, but we see them so late in the season, a lot of things will change by then," Fox explained. "You just listen for things -- there are certain little calls -- but I’m not sure anyone’s going to remember that in December.”

CAPTAINS

While the season-long captains have yet to be named, Fox said he will pick the representatives for each preseason game.

Last week in Dallas, Lonie Paxton, Chris Kuper, Kyle Orton, J.D. Walton, Brian Dawkins and Elvis Dumervil headed to midfield for the coin toss.

On Saturday, the captains will be Brandon Lloyd and Ryan Clady on offense, Champ Bailey and D.J. Williams on defense and Eddie Royal on special teams.

“I think it’s just an opportunity for guys who have established themselves to some degree on the team," Fox said. "It gives them an opportunity to see how being a captain is.”

RUN-FIRST?

Fox, who had a successful running attack for the majority of his tenure in Carolina, was asked if he would describe his offensive philosophy as "run-first."

“I believe you’ve got to be able to do both (run and pass)," he said. "I think when you get one-dimensional on offense, you give the defense a little advantage. So being able to do both and execute both based on what the defense does.”

But that doesn't mean he isn't focused on improving on a rushing offense that ranked 26th in the league last season.

"It’s something we’ve emphasized," Fox said. "I’m a firm believer that you get what you emphasize, and the running backs are a big part of that. I think (Knowshon Moreno) has worked very hard this offseason. I think there’s a noticeable difference in his speed and conditioning."
