Good morning from Mile High country. Just arrived in Denver for tonight’s exhibition opener against the Broncos (6 p.m., channel 13, 710AM/97.3 FM). Sunny and warm here now, but a chance of thunderstorms by early this evening.
I was astounded at the number of buzzing Seahawks fans inside SeaTac Airport this morning heading here — in full-on, regular season-caliber 12th Man regalia — for a preseason game. If I had been more alert, or if it hadn’t been 5 a.m., I’d be posting pictures on here for you of the scene.
My game advance in today’s News Tribune profiled Brock Coyle, who has gone in months from undrafted rookie free agent from FCS Montana to the starting middle linebacker for the Super Bowl champions matching wits with Peyton Manning tonight.
