So this isn’t exactly your standard, run-of-the-mill edition of Denver Dailies.
Think of this as my parting gift to you – like those 1980s game shows. (‘Sale of the Century,’ anyone?)
I’ll be out of town for the next eight days, because, well, I haven’t had a real vacation in much too long. To be a “real” vacation, first things first: NO laptop.
That’s right; my trusted companion is staying home, so DHF will be taking a mini-break of sorts.
I have, however, written a couple of posts which will autopublish in my absence, so as to give you some reason to keep on visiting. I will also be tweeting occasionally and posting on DHF’s Facebook, because, let’s face it, I can’t be away from the NFL for too long. I just can’t.
Enough of my pre-travel rambles…time for headlines.

Mile Hiatus - The Denver Broncos have about a month-and-a-half hiatus — starting now. Thursday’s minicamp was the last time the team will practice as a unit until training camp begins near the end of July. Players and coaches all have their own thoughts on how the next six weeks will be spent. But with all the progress that’s been made in 10 days of OTAs and three minicamp practices so far this summer, sitting around and squandering it is the last option for any Bronco.

Denver Broncos: Peyton Manning Following John Elway’s Path - It seems fitting that the person responsible for finally bringing John Elway’s successor to the Denver Broncos was John Elway himself. The Broncos have had some success after Elway, including some great seasons with Jake Plummer, but for the most part they’ve had trouble finding Elway’s heir apparent. The list of those who have come and gone also consists of Bubby Brister, Brian Griese,Jay Cutler, Kyle Orton, and Tim Tebow. The Broncos have won only two playoff games over the past 13 seasons with these quarterbacks at the helm. Now it seems like the organization has found the guy who can take them to the next level.
