“I’m checkin’ out”, Osweiler said with a laugh, cutting off his proverbial QB rehab ankle monitor.
What if Brock does exactly what he’s being asked to do-not turn the ball over-and the team gets back on track? Last season with the Texans, he threw for 196 yards with no touchdowns and an interception in their 27-0 loss to the Jacoby Brissett-led Patriots.
“That’s what I’ve been able to do”.
“In your heart, you know he can play better because those three balls he threw, you just can’t throw”.
Another hint on the change to Osweiler was the unusually harsh descriptions Joseph used of Siemian’s play. Joseph said he’s not sure if TE Jake Butt (knee) will come off the reserve/non-football injury list this weekend.
“I can’t say, if something does happen, what the time frames are”, Joseph said. “We’re just there to support each other – good, bad, or indifferent”. “It falls on Trevor, but it was a unit issue that made the change”.
Siemian also went 8-6 last season but the Broncos missed the playoffs at 9-7.
The teams will meet Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field under much different circumstances. “All four losses are the same”.
They held the Chiefs (6-2) to two third-down conversions. “We won a Super Bowl with Brock”. We’re not saying, we’re just saying…
The Broncos’ first-year head coach does present it straight, sometimes. “And now we’re going to put it to the test”. It means Thomas hasn’t had a touchdown catch in roughly 50 weeks, no running back has more than one rushing touchdown and even the Broncos’ elite defense has forced just six turnovers, or 11 fewer than the league leaders (Buffalo and Baltimore).
But the offense has largely gone south since in a stretch where the Broncos are 1-4 with the current three-game losing streak. “It’s a new system that he’s inherited with Mike McCoy here, so his inconsistencies have come just by him pressing, trying to make big plays”. Ultimately the turnovers were what cost him the job.
“Keep doing what you’re doing”, Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich said, referring to what the team told Blount.
There’s a good chance we find out the answer to both of those questions over the final nine games of this season. “So, game manager, protecting the football, whatever you call it, that’s our job every week”.
A place where you don’t know who your quarterback really is. “That part, he’s been struggling with”. “Got another opportunity Sunday against a good football team to get back on track that way”.
The Broncos are No. 1 in the National Football League in total defense, allowing 261 yards per game, but they are just 24th in scoring offense with 18.1 points per contest.
