WADOO!!NEWS: How’d Denver prepare for Indianapolis? By watching a tiger attacking human prey
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The Denver Broncos defense has watched animal attack videos all season as a hype-up tactic to prepare for games, from swarming sharks to pouncing lions.
And now things have escalated.
As the Broncos prepare for Sunday’s divisional playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts, they were shown a video of human prey.
“It was just like a normal person on a horse, and a tiger jumped in the air and grabbed him out of nowhere,” cornerback Chris Harris said. “I had never seen that clip before. That’s a pretty crazy clip.”
Harris’ teammates helped him recount the details of the clip, prepared by a defensive assistant coach. Safety T.J. Ward chimed it that it was indeed a tiger. Linebacker Steven Johnson hypothesized that the man may have been riding an elephant, not a horse.
But the message was clear.
“Attack your prey,” Harris said, laughing.
Defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio said the video included a “famous player” but none of the defensive players would confirm who that player was, or if it was a member of the Colts.
“It was kind of like a Go-Pro vision. Kind of like that,” Harris said. “So you couldn’t really see the guy, but you could see his arm just getting taken off.”
