GREELEY, Colo.-Day two of the Denver Broncos 2002 Training Camp began in pretty much the same fashion as day one ended, with players on both sides of the ball shaking off the rust.
The intensity level however, was clearly different. Today became aggressive, and no one could have been happier than head coach Mike Shanahan, still feeling the pains of last year's 8-8, home for the playoffs debacle.
"The second day they (the players) kind of got a feel for what we're asking of them when they have their pads on," said Shanahan. "I thought they really practiced hard."
"Everyone's come in here in really good shape, and that's what you look for first. We've got some great effort and guys trying real hard."
HIT OF THE DAY:
Linebacker John Mobley, seemed intent on leveling anything that came his direction, but the hit on WR Scottie Montgomery as he came across the middle was enough to draw a gasp from even some of the coaching staff.
After alienating most of his teammates last season, QB Brian Griese appears to have learned his lesson. The fifth year veteran spent the majority of the afternoon session singling out receivers other than Rod Smith or Ed McCaffrey to throw to.
ON THE IMPRESSIVE LIST:
WR Kevin Kasper, bigger, stronger and faster than last year. The injured ankle seems to be healed and his added bulk gives him a leading edge heading into the third receiver position. Newest knickname – "Little Romo" for his new found love of body building.
There will be two practices on Sunday, July 28. The morning session will begin at 9:00 and will be in full pads. The afternoon session will begin at 2:45 without pads. All sessions are free and open to the public.
