“Our starters will play probably close to a quarter of football and then we’ll go from there,” head coach Gary Kubiak said Thursday. “Obviously, we’ve got a lot of guys to look at. We’ve got some players coming back that did not play last week. It’s exciting to get back in our stadium.”

“Obviously looking out there, having number ten out there split out is something that makes you excited at quarterback, knowing a guy like that is going to go up and work to get open and get the ball no matter where the ball is at,” Keenum said. “I think all those young receivers have done extremely well, a good job this past week and really entire camp of competing.”
“Well, it gets us back active inside,” Kubiak said of Cushing’s presence in the game. “As I’ve told y’all before, when Cush is in there and we’re doing a lot of our inside stunts, it frees people up. We lost some of that last year when we lost Cush. It’s been back to business as usual.”
In the 2013 season, J.J. Watt wants to create a 20-20-20 club. Watt wants to reach 20 sacks, 20 pass deflections and 20 tackles for a loss, he told Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com.

I was asked before if I thought he could have a better year this year than he did last year, I think he can.

He studies the players he plays against every week, even more so now. He’s been dominant in training camp.”
