Happy Wednesday, Broncos Country!
We have now hit the middle of the work week and the weekend is just around the bend.
Today the team will take a break from their regularly scheduled activity sessions, as there are no practices scheduled for today. Though it is still early and there is a long ways to go, there have been a myriad of quality story lines reported over the past several days that have generated some quality discussion amongst fans here at Mile High Report. That being said, with the pause in camp practices, lets use today's Horse Tracks to sound off in the comments and discuss what has been your favorite Broncos 2015 camp story thus far.
For me the headline of Broncos training camp thus far is the competition on the offensive line and the continuous growth and development of rookie players such as Ty Sambrailo and Max Garcia. Could it be possible that the Broncos 2015 opening day starters on the left side of the line protecting Peyton Manning are two rookies? It is both an exciting and worrisome prospect at the same time, but I can't think of any time in Broncos history (or even NFL history) that a team has started its opening season with two rookies guarding the blind side.
Does anyone know if that has happened before? Kudos in advance to any reader who can post that information in the comments!
Also, a huge thank you and shout out to Jon Heath who has been doing an absolutely tremendous job of covering everything Broncos related for our staff and the entire community to date. It is truly appreciated and I am very impressed with the quality work you have been able to put together during your time at Dove Valley. Everyone give Jon a big round of applause and thank him for a job well done and if you haven't, be sure you give him a follow on Twitter by clicking the link above.
Thanks for reading and have a wonderful rest of your week!
