Before you call for Vance Joseph’s job, it’s important to understand this.
The Broncos first preseason game had it all, from nightmares to pleasant dreams about better days to come.
Case Keenum made one play on Friday that made some of his teammates turn to the media and exclaim “You better be tweeting that right now!”
If it wasn’t already clear back in April and May, it’s certainly crystal clear now by nearly the entire organizations own admission: Case Keenum’s running the show.
Joe Ellis and John Elway put the entire organization on notice this offseason. That’s led to a different dynamic within the building.
Thirteen months ago, Vance Joseph deemed Chad Kelly his “favorite quarterback in the draft.” Saturday, Joseph started the quarterback’s hype train again.
Outsiders continue to question if the Broncos ponied up $18 million per year for a one-hit wonder. Inside the organization, Keenum’s anything but a one-hit wonder.
There’s a different mindset of how the Broncos want to win. That’s exactly why they signed Case Keenum.
In an NFL where the quarterback market lacks a middle class, there are two options for teams who are on search for their next signal caller: Expensive and dirt cheap—in NFL terms—and you get what you pay for.
Kirk Cousins is on everyone’s mind, but if the Broncos can’t land the top quarterback on the market, Denver’s options will be limited outside of a few other signal callers.
The guys discuss Trevor Siemian's trade value, the potential of Tyrod Taylor and Lamar Jackson in Denver and much, much more.
For countless reasons, the Broncos made the right move, and found the right guy, to lead their offense moving forward.
