Broncos show confidence at mini-camp
Among the observations at Broncos mini-camp was Rod Smith lending a hand to Champ Bailey.
Denver -- If the Denver Broncos are still hurting from their stinging playoff defeat at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts, they are hiding it pretty well. Denver opened its final mini-camp before training camp on Wednesday and the optimism and confidence that has defined the Mike Shanahan era was on full display.
Taking the field in helmets and shorts, offense in white and defense in blue, the 2004 Broncos reflected the offseason personnel changes wrought by Shanahan and the usual player turnover. Here are some observations from mini-camp:
"Somebody has to make that play. I had three of 'em on me."
"You're gonna be tired, son, chasing me around all day."
