Getting pumped for this special Broncos season

New, comments

The Broncos by all intents and purposes look like a reborn team. That’s a very good thing and has most fans feeling pretty stoked about this season.

It has been quite awhile since I’ve handled any Horse Tracks, but I’m back baby! Hopefully I can add a little change of pace to them as I bring Broncos Country the noteworthy links to be seen for Broncos and NFL news.

I’ve got a lot to say about this team and what we should be looking for. I’ll hopefully knock that post out next week and share some No Bull insight on keeping Broncos Country grounded and realistic about their expectations for the season.

But in the meantime, I have to say the Broncos and their fans seem very electric this training camp. Fans that I talk to are hopeful and really and truly excited to see what this team can do. Also, listening to the press conferences I get the feel that the players feel the same way. It is like they have had a breath of fresh air in getting really decent coaching and feel like they have a direction to travel again that makes sense.

I know we get hyped every off season. Being Broncos fans, we darn well expect a playoff appearance (thank you Pat Bowlen, God rest your soul) each and every year. I don’t know if we’ll get one this year, but it sure feels like a promising season to me.

I’m curious to hear your thoughts in the comments about this. Do you as a fan feel any “extra juice” about this year? Negative or positive, let me know what you fine ladies and gentlemen are feeling about this season and your hopes or fears for it.
