Demaryius Thomas continues to remain humble in spite of his beastliness on the field of play. His hunger for championships over statistics is wholly refreshing. Perhaps Josh McDaniels understood this more than anything when he took DT over Dez Bryant three years ago.

The JUG’s machine is sitting at the 30 yard line to my right. Duke Ihenacho is the first man out and he is in Full Pads. Ross Rasner follows shortly after and 10 minutes elapse before the HORN signals the start of this practice session.
