Peaks & Valleys - Sept. 13 - The Day After (A Broncos Loss)

Peaks
-The Rockies are now within 1.5 games of the Padres and Giants for the NL West lead. How many times were the Rockies written off after that July road trip? Or after a so-so August? Or even just before September started?

-Jason Giambi still has life left in his bat, hitting the game-winning two-run homer. No golden thong was used--well, no one has admitted to this yet.

-Brandon Lloyd and Eddie Royal combined for 13 receptions and 215 yards. Is it too early to say, "Brandon Marshall who?"

-Robert Ayers has already beaten his 2009 total for sacks after recording one yesterday. Just don't let it be the last one.

Level Ground

-Tim Tebow ran twice and gained two yards. It is what it is. Nothing more, nothing less.

Valleys

-Ugh. The Broncos lost the season opener, but at least it wasn't like how the Detroit Lions' loss happened.
