Happy Monday, Omelette readers. We’ve had a little bit of time to digest the first look at the 2018 Broncos in action. There was some good and some, well, not-so good. So let’s recap what happened:
The Broncos are back at practice this week. There will be two that are open to the public from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Tuesday and Wednesday. Next up: The Bears come into town for a 7:05 p.m. game on Saturday.
