The Broncos are no longer flying under the radar. Thanks to one win, they’ve propelled themselves into the national spotlight. Now considered a top team in the league, they made the cover of Sports Illustrated this week. SI senior writer, Jim Trotter, covers the story. I’ve already read it and it’s a great piece. Make sure to pick up a copy!
“Vonnie Holliday is one of the more vociferous players in football, but even he was stunned into silence early last month by an impromptu scouting report on his new team, the Broncos. A 12-year veteran defensive end, Holliday signed with Denver the week before the Sept. 13 season opener and arrived in the Mile High City optimistic and excited. Then, while talking to a local reporter, he got the lowdown on his teammates: ‘Basically,’ Holliday was told, ‘you’re playing with a bunch of bums.’ The newcomer was taken aback. ‘At first I didn’t know what to say,’ Holliday says. ‘Then I was like, ‘Whoa. I don’t know what you’ve seen so far, but in the couple of [preseason] games I’ve watched, they’ve played hard and at a high level.’ I mean, how do you say something like that?’ A month later the answer is obvious: You don’t.” (Sports Illustrated)
