Broncos fans had to leave the practice facility when rain, lightning arrived. July 27, 2012

Big bummer when the lightning arrived at Dove Valley Friday afternoon. About 2,500 fans were sent packing after only a few minutes of practice (photo above). The team moved into the “bubble”, but there is no room for the fans in there.

History isn’t with Manning, even if his wits still are. Only three QBs age 36 or older have won Super Bowls. And, yes, one of them is currently running the Broncos. John Elway, Jim Plunkett and Johnny Unitas are the three quarterbacks who did it. What do you think?

Day 2 of Broncos practice started at 2:20 p.m. after fans by the hundreds had filed into the practice facility at Dove Valley to watch QB Peyton Manning and the rest of the team. Manning was the first player on the field at 2:05… no surprise there. But a storm brought lightning just a few minutes after practice started. Coach John Fox moved practice inside and the fans were escorted out.

The next chance for fans to see practice is Saturday from 8:50-11:30 a.m. Sunday’s practice is 2:20-5 p.m. This link has the training camp schedule and tips you will need.

The Peyton Manning era has arrived to the deafening roar of unbridled enthusiasm that abounds. It is a time that from this point forward will clearly define John Elway’s VP legacy as that of hero or villain, success or failure.

The new football season is officially underway with the opening of training camp. There was a certain feel, a different feel at Broncos HQ today. A record crowd — 4,000+ — of cheering fans, as well as members of the media from all over the country attended the first team practice.

Peyton Manning and his teammates wasted no time getting down to serious work. Manning said he was impressed with the pace of the first practice, and the fact the players are already in good shape.

Running back Knowshon Moreno, tight end Julius Thomas and right guard Chris Kuper were all on the practice field. Those three are coming back from surgeries. Wide receiver Brandon Stokley was not there… he had the flu.
