Nothing like Denver Broncos-brand optimism

Can you smell that? That’s hope!

Casey Barrett- Mile High Report

If you’re not excited about this season, check your pulse. With two days of camp in the books, all signs point to an improved 2018 campaign.

Thank goodness.

No notable injuries? Case Keenum slingin’ balls like we haven’t seen in years? The defense looking dominant and hungry? Rookies looking as though they’ll immediately contribute? Check all the boxes.

This is exciting ... but ...

I feel this way every year. Two days of camp does not a season make. The story of the 2018 season is yet to be written and there will be the ups that fill fans with joy and the downs that make us all want to lie prone in a fetal position. For right now, things are looking great and I dig it.

So far, so good, Broncos. Let’s keep up the good work and shock the NFL.... again.
