Broncos, Briefly: Friday, January 6, 2017

Posted Jan 6, 2017

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Denver Broncos.

The procedure was minor and elective, and Siemian is expected to be fully recovered by the start of offseason workouts, which start earlier for the Broncos this season (April 3) because of the head coaching change.

Just how tough is it to be the Broncos head coach? Consider: the fan base has purchased every ticket since the AFC-NFL merger in 1970, the franchise has more Super Bowl appearances than losing seasons since Pat Bowlen bought the team in 1984 and Hall of Famer John Elway is chief football decision-maker.

Broncos coaching search shifts into high gear this weekend with interviews for Shanahan, Toub (Troy Renck, KMGH)
The process to find Gary Kubiak's replacement begins in earnest this weekend. The Broncos will interview Kansas City Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub on Friday, Atlanta offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan on Saturday and Miami defensive coordinator Vance Joseph likely early next week.

Joseph spent four years in Boulder during the most storied stretch in program history (1990-1994), began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at the university in 1999 and returned for his second defensive backs gig in 2002. Over the course of that time spent in Boulder, Joseph impacted many, and when you hear them talk you begin to think he fits that description laid out by John Elway pretty darn well.

Fan favorite mascot Thunder will take his turn as Stock Show parade grand marshal — in 2018 (Danika Worthington, Denver Post)
The gray Arabian gelding was scheduled to be the 2017 grand marshal — until the parade was canceled because of a looming snowstorm. But when he steps off from Union Station next year, he’ll be following a route taken by Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, five-time NBA All-Star Chauncey Billups and Rin Tin Tin X, the purported descendant of a German shepherd that found fame in Hollywood after being rescued by an American soldier during World War I.

Just how good was Broncos punter Dixon in his rookie season? (Andrew Mason)
Riley Dixon’s rookie season wasn't perfect. But he did give the Broncos an upgrade, and his 41.3-yard net average was the best for a rookie or first-year punter in NFL history.
