  • Broncos QB Club at Dove Valley

    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-PIuZO9ITw9A/UnsC6Q8IY4I/AAAAAAAAFj8/_evtgJ5rPto/s1600/outside.JPG"><img alt="" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-PIuZO9ITw9A/UnsC6Q8IY4I/AAAAAAAAFj8/_evtgJ5rPto/s1600/outside.JPG" border="0" /></a></div>
    On a pleasant Fall evening members of the Denver Broncos Quarterback Club were given the opportunity to see the taping of The Denver Huddle Broncos TV show at the team's headquarters in Dove Valley.
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1O1gKaCuvfM/UnsDhidzGyI/AAAAAAAAFkE/wvZIuHeL_t4/s1600/lobby1.JPG"><img alt="" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1O1gKaCuvfM/UnsDhidzGyI/AAAAAAAAFkE/wvZIuHeL_t4/s1600/lobby1.JPG" border="0" /></a></div>
    In the lobby was a display of Bronco helmets over the years, trophies the team has won, and footballs from milestone games.
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-22YFiWrac8s/UnsEF_pqcfI/AAAAAAAAFkM/U6AEZQ9E-Eo/s1600/sbtrophies.JPG"><img alt="" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-22YFiWrac8s/UnsEF_pqcfI/AAAAAAAAFkM/U6AEZQ9E-Eo/s1600/sbtrophies.JPG" border="0" /></a></div>
    The team's two Vince Lombardi trophies were prominently displayed. I think it's about time to expand that case and add a third in February!
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-YTiUff5yQPc/UnsEbxzbVNI/AAAAAAAAFkU/fxW_YZiwNTA/s1600/football.JPG"><img alt="" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-YTiUff5yQPc/UnsEbxzbVNI/AAAAAAAAFkU/fxW_YZiwNTA/s1600/football.JPG" border="0" /> </a></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I remember the Broncos big win over San Diego in 1973 to clinch the team's first winning season. Was it really 40 years ago?</div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-oefuvufOAtk/UnsFD9443qI/AAAAAAAAFkc/089GZibrzZg/s1600/coaches.JPG"><img alt="" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-oefuvufOAtk/UnsFD9443qI/AAAAAAAAFkc/089GZibrzZg/s1600/coaches.JPG" border="0" /></a></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"></div>
    We briefly were allowed access outside the Bronco locker room where a history of the team's head coaches is displayed in this mural. Is there room for Jack Del Rio?
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-qV8mziJx6BU/UnsFfQhxh9I/AAAAAAAAFkk/Ivygvc3L4Aw/s1600/martin.JPG"><img alt="" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-qV8mziJx6BU/UnsFfQhxh9I/AAAAAAAAFkk/Ivygvc3L4Aw/s1600/martin.JPG" border="0" /></a></div>
    Long time Bronco fans will remember legendary broadcaster Bob Martin. It was good to see the Broncos honor Martin with this picture at the team's headquarters.
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-7c30U-SxD8M/UnsGEVdQMZI/AAAAAAAAFks/_oA01pylN8k/s1600/trespass.JPG"><img alt="" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-7c30U-SxD8M/UnsGEVdQMZI/AAAAAAAAFks/_oA01pylN8k/s1600/trespass.JPG" border="0" /></a></div>
    Our Denver Broncos Quarterback Club group was led behind locked gates to places the general public does not get to see.
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ppbefZSD8ps/UnsGeax5ClI/AAAAAAAAFk0/hgrBp0NhBG8/s1600/practice.JPG"><img alt="" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ppbefZSD8ps/UnsGeax5ClI/AAAAAAAAFk0/hgrBp0NhBG8/s1600/practice.JPG" border="0" /></a></div>
    The practice fields were silent this night, a far cry from the busy training camp workouts I witnessed here three months earlier.
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-lqrpo7Ej4HE/UnsHNJqlrrI/AAAAAAAAFk8/VG0nJICrBbA/s1600/set.JPG"><img alt="" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-lqrpo7Ej4HE/UnsHNJqlrrI/AAAAAAAAFk8/VG0nJICrBbA/s1600/set.JPG" border="0" /> </a></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">We walked past the weight room to the temporary set for the Denver Huddle TV show. Here hosts Rod Mackey and Ed McCaffery talk to player guest Shaun Phillips before the cameras started to roll.</div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Phillips came across as a very humble team player. He said he had no bitterness towards the Chargers after San Diego let him go in the offseason, but he was looking forward to sacking Phillip Rivers this week.</div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-briDe0ay2xA/UnsIKRY8d-I/AAAAAAAAFlE/_ENXuFjNDOo/s1600/phillips.jpg"><img alt="" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-briDe0ay2xA/UnsIKRY8d-I/AAAAAAAAFlE/_ENXuFjNDOo/s1600/phillips.jpg" border="0" /></a></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Phillips demonstrated his pass rush moves. He said he only had two. "You don't need 13 moves to rush the passer," he told us. He displayed his primary move and counter move.</div>

    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The Bronco Quarterback Club members in attendance listened intently and cheered on queue for the show. I was thrilled to have a first row seat!</div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-IceBrbVqdlk/UnsJJvtSUxI/AAAAAAAAFlU/Q_No1yNqbV8/s1600/ellis.jpg"><img alt="" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-IceBrbVqdlk/UnsJJvtSUxI/AAAAAAAAFlU/Q_No1yNqbV8/s1600/ellis.jpg" border="0" /> </a></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">After the show Broncos President Joe Ellis took questions from our group. I asked him if Denver would ever host a Super Bowl. He said after the Giants game this year in New York members of the Broncos management stayed a couple of extra days to meet with the NFL to explore the possibility of a Super Bowl in Denver. "They encouraged us to throw our hat into the ring," said Ellis. He thought this year's Super Bowl in New York will be key to Denver's chances - will the big game in a cold weather city come off OK?</div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"></div>
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Overall it was a great evening to see the Broncos training facility behind the scenes and witness closeup the taping of the Denver Huddle TV show.</div>

      I agree. Time to expand that Lombardi case.

        It is 1,005 miles from my door to Mile High, thanks for making it seem much closer than it is Titan!

              To be fair, this was at Dove Valley, which is a good 10+ miles away from [email protected]

                Thanks Titan!

                Does the QB Club get to do this just once a year or more often?

                  I really need to do this. I live and work five minutes from Dove Valley, (probably something in my sub-conscience), had VIP and press credentials and I've never once toured there. I r teh stupid.

                    This year the QB Club got to do the Denver Huddle taping twice. We have a good relationship with the broncos and I expect that to continue next year. Joe Ellis has also spoken to our group and taken questions at meetings the last two years so I would expect he'll do it again next year when we are in the Denver Huddle audience.

                          Apparently, color was invented sometime between the Red Miller era and the Dan Reeves era.

                              Took some of our wedding photos in front of this sign, as my wife shook her head...
