Chris Harris, CB, on facing receivers other than his own Thursday at Chicago: "I can't wait to hit somebody else. But I think as we get going and the more live reps I get, I am getting more comfortable in this scheme".
"It's at that time where you're ready to see some other receivers and get ready for the season". "I guess for me it's Siemian because he's been there".
While Saturday's work helped illuminate coaches' evaluations of players and players' evaluations of themselves, the amount that all parties can extract pales compared with the games.
The Denver Broncos have a scrimmage at training camp on Saturday, and it could be a major turning point for some critical position battles. There's small windows to throw it into, but like I said, when you make a mistake there's obviously going to be turnovers when you play a defense like this, and the best thing to do is learn from that. "I think, like I've said before, I did some things okay previous year and I did some things I really want to work on and get better at. For me, I want to improve and add value to this team". But with a few days before the first preseason game, there is no clear victor.
Punt returner is not. "I threw that one pick that I can't have, but that's what practice is for and what training camp is for, to take your chances and make your mistakes out here so that when you get in the game you learn from them".
It's not just McKenzie's quickness in traffic and burst to the edge that allowed him to seize the job.
"He is so mature for a rookie".

"Paxton, outside the interception, was very solid", Joseph said. "Nothing bothers him. He's had some bad days and you can't tell". "He is as even-headed as any rookie I have ever coached".
Saturday was a good day; he broke off a pair of long punt returns and had a 10-yard reception from Siemian with the No. 2 offense during the scrimmage. There are a lot of guys where you don't really see it until they play. "He can catch the football". I mean, Troy Aikman went 1-15. Obviously, the sooner that comes, the better. "I think it's just about progressing day-in and day-out and making yourself a better football player and making the guys around you better". "Who's the best guy opposite of Von", Joseph said. "Who's making plays? Who's making less errors? Edebali's in the mix, also". On his first throw of the drive, he was swatted at the line by Adam Gotsis-who has shown a propensity for the batted ball and also stuffed the first-down run-leaving 3rd-and-long.
Now in field goal position, the offense ran it on first down.
"Today he was physical and tough", Joseph said. By any stretch of the mind, Trevor Siemian did not blow anyone away on Saturday afternoon, but Paxton Lynch did just about nothing. But it's Quarterbacks Coach Bill Musgrave who handles most of the work of guiding the three passers.
In the spirit of the format, Lynch got one more play on the series. According to Siemian, he's already learned a great deal from Musgrave.
"I think today you actually saw some separation", Palmer reported on NFL Network.
"He's a contrast personality-wise from [Knapp]".
