This video speaks for itself, and in doing so, says a whole lot about crazy Bronco fans.

The Idaho Statesman is reporting that Kyle Wilson will miss spring practice due to a knee injury. With Orlando Scandrick gone to the NFL, the Broncos will be without both of their starting cornerbacks from last year for the spring.
While Wilson's injury is not expected to be serious, linebacker David Shields is still a question mark to return next season after shoulder surgery. Fortunatley, the team is stacked at linebacker, but having a veteran presence like Shields would be helpful.

When Boise State's schedule came out last week, we immediately thought that the Broncos were going undefeated. This is the same thought we have every offseason, and we usually continue having this thought until a road game at a BCS school.
The 2008 schedule seems to set up particularly nice for us with home games against Hawaii and Fresno, two games before our trip to Oregon, and creative scheduling early in the season. We like it.
But we feel that 2009 could be so much better.
Idaho State, Bowling Green, and Southern Miss do not get us excited. We want some new competition next season. Here is our wish list for Boise State football 2009.
- Duke: We want Sean Renfree to know what he is missing: success, tradition, and blocking.
- Washington: We could have easily beaten the Huskies last year, and we want another shot. This time, we will leave Taylor Tharp at home.
- USC: If Idaho can lose to them, then we should be able to lose by a lot less.
- Colorado: We want Dan Hawkins' to pay in eternity for his crimes against us, but we will settle for beating the Buffaloes by double digits.
- The All-MAC team: Everyone is always saying that the WAC is a weak conference. Well, suit up the best players in the MAC and ship them out to Boise and we'll see about that.
- The Chicago Bears: No one cuts Brock Forsey and gets away with it.
- The Winnipeg Blue Bombers: Playing against Ryan Dinwiddie might make our heads explode. We want to find out.
- The Boise Burn: Just to make sure that the Broncos are the best team in Idaho.
We've been a little heavy on the coverage of the Southern Miss portion of Boise State's upcoming schedule (It's just too easy!), but some big news came from one of its biggest alumni today. Yep, Brett Favre is retiring! Let the praise begin.
That's what separates Favre from his peers. He kept playing. Injuries,
Father Time, family tragedy, it seemed almost nothing could stop him. Once he
succeeded Dan Majkowski as the Packers' quarterback, he never missed a start.
Never. That's the record that means the most to him. That's the record that
showed how much his teammates could count on him.
And I thought the interception record would be the one he held most dear to him. Seriously though, how is John Madden taking this today? Someone should check on him.
Ryan Clady made his mark on NFL scouts yesterday, virtually assuring himself to be the second offensive lineman taken in April's NFL Draft. According to the Statesman, more than 50 pro personnel representing 30 of the NFL teams were on hand to watch Clady and a dozen other former Broncos work out and go through drills.
By all accounts, Clady impressed during the session, likely solidifying his spot as the No. 2 offensive tackle in the draft behind Michigan's Jake Long. Representatives from the San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins spoke with him after the workout. The Chicago Bears have a private workout scheduled with Clady for next week.
"With his workout I know he impressed everybody," said Clady's agent, Pat Dye Jr., who was not allowed inside during the workouts, but spoke with NFL personnel after the session. "Everybody came out and said he really helped himself."
Clady had a disappointing Combine performance after being forced to sit out with an injury. Doing well in yesterday's Pro Day assured everyone that he is worth a high first-round pick.Clady solidifies his draft status [Idaho Statesman]
