Scherff can be a scary looking dude.  I wouldn't want to be on the other end of that scowl.

He looks like Mel Gibson's right-hand man from Braveheart got a haircut.

I don't understand the tweet about Brandon Scherff.  Is that a good thing or bad thing there has been no story lines about him?

I'd go with good - he's doing his job and not getting blown up.  Perhaps as this season progresses his level of play will continue to improve and he'll start getting some notoriety for his work.  After all, it took Marshal Yanda several years before he started getting recognized for his work.  In the meantime, no news about an O-lineman is good news.

I strongly prefer winning over losing.

Good thing.  Last year there was a lot of hand wringing because, oh no, the dude they picked #5 overall wasn't panning out as a franchise NFL LT.  But turns out he's doing his job and doing it well, and nobody's talking "bust" any more.

Click on the article. It's a good thing and talks about how the line has vastly improved with Schreff.

Thank you to you all for the answer.  Glad to hear that Brandon is getting acclimated to the NFL.

I'd liken it to the saying about NHL defenceman. If you don't notice them, then they're doing their job well.

As I mentioned in another post yesterday...

"The Bronco's cut eleven (11) players today yesterday and no ex-Hawkeyes were included.  Kind of surprised the BJ didn't get cut given how deep they are at DB.  Starting to think that Hank makes the active roster and not the practice squad."

Well, the Turk paid a visit to HKC and BJ today (Saturday) - both were cut by the Bronco's today.  Hopefully one or both of them make the Practice Squad.

Happy days - HKC makes the Bronco's practice squad...

Krieger-Coble had three catches for 30 yards against the 49ers, but coach Gary Kubiak wants him to add weight and strength.

Two more PS spots still open, will BJ take one of those?

Had to Google Prater's NFL history and he's been cut from 7 different teams in his 4 year career! Man, can't be fun being an NFL journeyman, but at least it's still better than selling used cars.

Is that a typo or do I have to look up what Hawls are? Damn these kids and their new lingo.

I'm gonna take a wild, wild guess here and say it's a typo

I agree! I think it looks awesome. I hope they are having the time of their lives.
