Posted Sep 22, 2017

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

Anderson changed it up this offseason. Now he says he’s back to “playing undrafted.” (Nicki Jhabvala, Denver Post)
Every practice includes a different pair of cartoon socks, and game days typically include a bit of color and a bit of bling. Because Anderson likes to keep it fresh and interesting and, if you haven’t noticed, he’s changed up quite a few things this season, on the field and off.

Broncos LB Miller calls low hit by Cowboys tight end “just baffling” (Mark Kiszla, Denver Post)
“My stance as a player, I’ve always tried to take care of my players on my football team and my opponents as well, whether it’s the quarterback, receivers, running backs,” Miller said. “So when it’s the other way around, it’s just baffling. But you can’t really spend too much time on it. Everybody’s situation in the National Football League is different. Everybody doesn’t have the same outlook I have and that my other comrades in the National Football League (have). Everybody doesn’t see it that way. Everybody doesn’t play the game like I play the game, and you have to respect that.”

Quarterback Trevor Siemian is playing like a man possessed — and the Broncos are benefiting on third down because of it.
