Tuesday May 16th, 2017

The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE in studio! Derek Wolfe had some words for the young rookies as well as himself in a hardcore press conference out at Dove Valley today, and the guys break it down with thoughts on the Broncos’ overall mentality heading into the ’17 season. Troy Renck joins the program to discuss Derek Wolfe’s comments at Dove Valley, and if Wolfe is all-in this year. Troy says Wolfe has realized his leadership role has broadened,  and accountability has now spilled over to the offensive side of the ball as well.



DMac says Trevor Siemian should have been upset that he wasn’t named the outright starter at QB heading into the ’17 season after a torrid start to the year in 2016 before getting injured. Big Al says at some point, Jake Butt and Chad Kelly will no longer be injured, and jobs will suddenly be on the line. Everything seems set up for Lynch to succeed, but Trevor Siemian still has the chance to step up and prove everybody wrong. Also, the guys hear from Domata Peko on if we could see a Haka dance at Dove Valley in the coming months.



Cleaning out our trucks as men is a big deal, and DMac wonders if it matters how the young rookies are treated. Big Al laughs about some of the best rookie year stories, and how to stay out of the dog house in camp. Troy Renck joins the program to discuss Derek Wolfe’s comments at Dove Valley, and if Wolfe is all in this year. Troy says Wolfe has realized his leadership role has broadened,  and accountability has now spilled over to the offensive side of the ball as well. Talib, Ward and Harris Jr. have the leadership locked up on the back end, and Troy pins Wolfe as one of the members up front expected to carry a heavy leadership load. Listen to the interview HERE!



Nobody carries a chip on their shoulder quite like Chris Harris Jr. and Big Al doesn’t even want to know how the NFL Top 100 list is compiled, after hearing that Harris Jr. landed at No. 63 overall. A caller tells DMac players with something to prove like Harris Jr. play harder, and the guys discuss the significance of making the Pro Bowl no longer being there. Also, the Nuggets ping-pong balls in the NBA Draft Lottery don’t give them much chance to move out of the 13th spot, even with the help of Gary Harris, and Peyton Manning gets set to host The ESPYS in July.
