LAST WEEK’S RESULT
Prediction: Cincinnati 20, Denver 24
Actual: Cincinnati 20, Denver 17
I cannot remember when I felt so… little… about the Denver Broncos. I also cannot remember the last time the team was all but mathematically eliminated from playoff competition this early in the season.
The meme that has been going around this week is the bus that pulled into and blocked the Weather Channel’s shot of a building implosion in Georgia. I kind of wish that bus had been between me and my television each and every game since the Dallas game this year.
KEY MATCH UP
Look, Oakland has not been particularly good this year. Much like Denver, they have severely under-performed expectations. Their defense has been terrible and their offense not up to par. Denver’s offense has been terrible and their defense not up to par.
Make my key match up this week the Denver offense vs. the Raiders defense.
The problem is…
…who will play quarterback for the Broncos?
As I write this, Denver has not named a starter.
It should be Paxton Lynch, right? If he is healthy, it must be him.
If he’s healthy and it’s not him? That’s a PROBLEM.
There are some pretty negative things going around about John Elway’s ability to scout talent overall and talent at the QB position specifically. If Lynch is a bust, watch out. Better go get Kirk Cousins in the off season, Mr. Elway.
Okay, I’ll take the Broncos. Again.
I believe my rationale this week is the same as it was last week: why the hell not?
If Denver cannot win a few of these last games, more changes are needed than this week’s ousting of Mike McCoy.
Many, many more…
