Horse Tracks 10/2/09 - Harris, Hillis return to practice; Hamilton, Larsen, A. Smith still out

New, comments


DB - Week 4 - Thu: McDaniels - Broncos TV


DB - Staying Fresh - Gray Caldwell
On the Broncos' depth, most notably at RB. I know everyone just writes about McD & Co. creating their own version of the Patriots in Denver (because it's easy to write), but does anyone else see shades of the Giants? I figure the Giants offered the model as the one team that beat McD's legendary '07 offense and he wanted to copy elements of their team as well...Ryan Harris and Peyton Hillis were limited participants yesterday, while Kenny McKinley missed practice. Ben Hamilton, Alphonso Smith and Spencer Larsen missed practice again with their injuries.

Eureka! Not sure if anyone had answered Ted's query regarding the stark end-zone painting in the home opener, but here's the explanation: it's all in the name of going retro to reflect Denver's early days. This Sunday will feature diamonds rather than just lines.
