Short-lived enthusiasm

By Frank Schwab

Players usually come to training camp with at least some excitement, but realize it won’t last long. The physical and mental toll of two-a-day practices is rough on everyone, even though training camp is pretty light in Denver and nowhere near the rough camps of generations ago.

“You look forward to it because you go through OTAs (organized team activities) and after a while you’re like ‘OK, let’s start hitting,’” defensive end Kenard Lang said. “Then you start hitting and after a while you’re like ‘Let’s stop hitting, let’s go back to OTAs.’”

On that note, I’ll be back here tomorrow to chronicle the start of the Broncos’ 2007 training camp.
