I spotted papi at the afternoon practice but couldn't muscle my way through the crowd to connect with him so this will just be my observations.
The first players out for the afternoon practice were the three quarterbacks and Ben hamilton.
The practice began once agian with emphasis on special teams. This time KO returns.
During drills Simms collided with royal on an end-around. When they executed it later in 11 on 11 they did it perfectly.
Coach Mcdaniels spent a lot of time with the recievers while on cutting drills. Stokley is a master at cutting and Royal is not far behind. What a tandem!
Stretched to Peal Jam and Beat It! (Should have stayed with PJ)
Right after passing drills went right back to KO retyrn at 6:05
The Tight Ends had a football on a rope that would be jerked to make them hold on.
On 7 on 7's Orton hit Kenny Mckinley with one of the prettiest passesIi have seen since # 7.
In 11 on 11's Jack Williams nearly intercepted the first play.
In 11 on 11's the offense seemed to 'win" more to me.
Quinn absolutely decked C.J. Jones. I think it knocked him silly.
At 7:00 we went back to Kick Offs.
At 7:09 we were back to 11 on 11. Daniel Graham flattened Wesley Woodyard. Eddie Royal got Jack williams turned around and blew by him like he was standing still. Simms delivered a nice pass.
This is going to be a very interesting year. We have returned to the hard-nosed brand of football that always symbolized the Denver Broncos. This group acts like they want to be on the field (with one exception)and wants to win a starting job. They all play with emotion but under controll. I really like what i have seen in one day of training Camp. More tomorrow.
