Broncos, Briefly: Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017

Posted Sep 21, 2017

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

Kiszla: His Broncos teammates have a man crush on quarterback Siemian. Here’s why. (Mark Kiszla, Denver Post)
Siemian is Mr. Skittles. Sweet but not a wallflower. There’s this story of how Manning, a notorious walnut-cracker, tried to crack wise on a Broncos rookie in the QB room three seasons ago, and Siemian gave it right back to the NFL legend. But, more times than not, Siemian is as easy as Sunday morning with his teammates.

[Ron] Leary was one of Denver's best offseason signings, and he's a big reason why the Broncos have had offensive success through Week 2—especially in the running game. Defensive coordinators have to start worrying about his ability to control the interior.

Third down was a nightmare for Broncos offense in 2016. Why that’s changed so far this season. (Nick Kosmider, Denver Post)
When the Broncos visit Buffalo in their first road game of the season Sunday, they’ll be bringing the best third-down offense in football. Denver has converted 17-of-30 such opportunities, a success rate of 56.7 percent.

Rubin could be latest of late arrivals to carve out a Broncos role (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
"I think I can fit into this scheme," Rubin said. "I played some 3-4 when I first got into the league [with the Cleveland Browns] and I think I can get in there and help stop the run if they need me to do that. ... But whenever they want me to play, I'll be ready to play."

Vance Joseph quickly rising to vanguard of NFL head coaching ranks (Alvin Reid, The St. Louis American)
Joseph’s Broncos are 2-0 after a 42-17 thumping of the visiting Dallas Cowboys. The Broncos completely shut down Ezekiel Elliott and made Dak Prescott look below average throughout last Sunday’s contest. Joseph, who was the Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator in 2016, inherited the top-flight defense, and all indications are he will make it even better.

Trevor Siemian is finally starting to get some love around the NFL.
