everyone was taking that moment to remember, the victims of 9/11, it really was powerful and it is really something that the as an american, so incredibly cool to be a part of. >> you think back to september 11 and you think of the tragedy. but september 12, within hours of september 11, the nation came together. and you know, i look back on september 11 and we think of the tragedy. but i like to think about how we came together. this is a perfect exame we have firefighters, we have nurses. we have people, you know, of the united airlines. there's just so many people impacted by this day. to have them all in one spot. it is just, it is really a special thing. it is about that togetherness. you know. >> yeah. >> and that is really what you are speaking of is that feeling you get when everyone is out there together. >> we encourage everyone to come out. thank you very much for being here, the climb is happening

i was impressed with trevor siemian. his first game in the national spotlight. everybody is looking at him. and he put points on the board in the fourth quarter when they needed him. the defense made plays. i really thought they held up well considering all that was at stake. the first game of the season with the nation watching. >> i think trevor siemian gets an a. maybe an a minus. i think the country and people in denver say this guy can actually play. but i'll give you a couple of things i was concerned about. general. in the first half, carolina hits six out of seven third downs. that never happened against that defense last year. in fact, in the playoffs, they have 42 third down. give you some stats there. they hit seven. the other night, six out of seven. that is not going to cut it. i didn't think the no fly zone was up and running the other night. i didn't think it was really up there. and i also thought when you
you don't miss malik jackson, but i think you do. i have less questions about trevor siemian because i think that is what he will be and are you going to be as good? >> i give a game ball, if it were up to me to give a game ball, i would have given it to the strength and conditioning coaches for the denver broncos. it was clear to me, the panthers had a lot of energy in the first half. but they started breathing that mountain air and those lungs started burning, the denver broncos got stronger and stronger. you can see the pass rush become in the second half. the panthers struggled offensively. you can see the panthers defense struggling. and the broncos, because, first game of the season, remember a couple of years ago when the broncos went down to miami. >> and they were gassed. so what would we be saying today if the kick was good? >> oh. we would be saying that the denver broncos are going to be in for a very long, long season. they can't win close games.
you and i predicated on the fact that he ... that they iced him after he hit it and he hooked the kick. now we are like oh, you know, everything is ... and i think, i think we should be somewhere in the middle. i think we are going to win the division. i think they are going to be pretty good. >> i didn't say they weren't going to win the playoffs. >> i think they are going to win the division, but, are they going to be defensively as dominant as they were last year? off 60 minutes i would sa they are not. >> they scored three touchdowns offensively the other night. that was rare last season. i think you have to find out in the next few weeks when they go on the road, how good they can really be. that will do it for us. i'm a. it's a happy time. >> we are 1-0. i'm z.
