Denver Broncos News -- Horse Tracks 7/18/13

Good morning folks! Wondered what's happened to "Countdown" the past few days? From my completely honest perspective, it has just become stale and laborious to write on a daily basis--especially searching for random facts and things to go with that day. So in the future, expect milestone days (like a specific Bronco great), and every 5th or 10th number. But it will cease being an everyday-thing. Besides, I have much better stuff to write like MHR-U and film study, and we'll soon have Training Camp/Preseason to tide us over until the action begins!
