The offseason isn’t just about improving on the field. It’s about improving off the field too.
Mike Klis of the Denver Post wrote an article detailing the steps that the Broncos are taking to improve team chemistry and leadership.
Eleven players went to the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs to take part in a ropes course and other team building activities. The idea came from left guard Zane Beadles who participated in a similar leadership “boot camp” at Utah.
It doesn’t get much more posh than The Broadmoor, but don’t get the wrong idea.
The Broncos didn’t walk around the pond feeding the ducks.
“Didn’t see the pond,” Beadles said.
They didn’t spend Friday or Saturday night hoisting steins and singing along at the Golden Bee.
“Never saw it,” Decker said.
Last Thursday, The Broadmoor 11 — using code names that Beadles asked not to reveal — talked about leadership.
Talked about what they hoped to accomplish.
Talked about each other.
Talked about themselves. - Mike Klis (Denver Post)
The group consisted of nine offensive players and two defensive players (Kevin Vickerson and Chris Harris).
Maybe the Broadmoor 11 should expand for version II. Great idea all around though.
