Tuesday June 13th, 2017

The Drive with Chad Brown & DMac LIVE in studio! Broncos get underway with mandatory mini-camp out at Dove Valley, and the guys hear from Cecil Lammey, who was out at practice taking notes. Also, Troy Renck was out at Dove Valley, and gives DMac & Chad his thoughts on what’s happening for the Broncos in ’17. Finally, Ed McCaffrey joins the show to talk about his upcoming camp at Valor next Monday.



DMac tells Chad if hitting was allowed in veteran minicamp today, the QBs would all be in the hospital. Cecil Lammey joins the show after going out to Dove Valley & hearing from Paxton & Trevor or the progress of the Denver Broncos’ QBs & how the Mike McCoy offense has slowed down for them. DMac gets Cecil’s thoughts on the mature responses from Paxton during his presser, and the huge steps forward he plans to take in ’17. Cecil notes Paxton’s resilience despite his mistakes, and his ability to break things down on an intricate level, and DMac says consistency can bode well for Paxton. Listen to the interview HERE!



Chad tells DMac there are very few blown assignments on an NFL defense, but the Broncos offense can’t keep leaving Von Miller & Co. on the field or their stars will wear down. Troy Renck joins the show to tell DMac & Chad the Broncos defense wanted to embarrass the offense in mini-camp today. The guys discuss whether or not this defensive swagger could hinder the offense, and it may be a disadvantage to the QBs having to play that defense every day. Troy notes that if the speed translates, Isaiah McKenzie will be a factor in ’17. Listen to the interview HERE! Also, DMac says Ty Sambrailo can be a hero at this point.



Ed McCaffrey joins the show to talk about his upcoming camp next Monday, and how he didn’t even go to a football camp until high school. DMac asks Ed how this year’s Broncos can run the ball better with the help of receivers as blockers, and Ed tells him big plays happen when receivers are getting it done, and there’s no way of knowing when the big play will come. Also, Ed talks about taking the pressure off the student athlete & gives an update on Christian and the McCaffrey boys. Listen to the interview HERE! Also, the NBA trends down for DMac & LeBron James denies the idea of superteams in the NBA.
