DMac: Broncos say goodbye to ‘Champ Camp’

Gary Kubiak told his Denver Broncos team, “You can either get back to practice, or we can come back later tonight and do this again.” This conversation happened after the fifth fight of the day on the final day of Broncos training camp and the second day of training with the San Francisco 49ers. OK, […]

DMac: James Ferentz, the tiny Broncos lineman with big heart, attitude

As camp comes to a conclusion and we roll into the later stages of preseason, there is one player who is impossible to miss despite the fact he’s one of the smallest guys in his group. James Ferentz (pronounced FAIR-ins — and I make note of this because I’ve been screwing up his name all […]

DMac Broncos training camp blog: ‘Champ Camp’ Day 12

Mark Sanchez had his best practice of camp on Tuesday. Of course, the players weren’t wearing pads and were going about half speed or so, but still Sanchez looked good. He threw a deep TD to DT and avoided the dumb mistakes of the past couple of days. Monday was miserable for Sanchez, as he […]

DMac Broncos training camp blog: ‘Champ Camp’ Day 8

For 90 minutes Wednesday, I sat with my mouth open in a chair having oral surgery.  The only thing more painful than that was watching the Denver Broncos quarterbacks try to run Gary Kubiak’s offense. Awful. Kubiak ripped all of his quarterbacks after practice, especially “The Pirate,” Paxton Lynch.  It was a sweltering hot day, […]

DMac blog- Day Five of Champ Camp

DMac’s comments on Monday’s practice… There are Broncos players who you KNOW are football players.  Even if you don’t know their names, when you pass them in the mall, you know they’re somebody.  You know what that’s like when you are walking past Gymboree next to Pac Sun and there is a dude who is […]

DMac blog — Day 3 of Champ Camp

DMac on Saturday’s practice… It’s become apparent there are two training camps going on at Dove Valley.  There is the Broncos training camp which features all of the “real players” and two quarterbacks in Trevor Siemian and Mark Sanchez who are battling for the top spot.
