Broncos, Briefly: Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017

Posted Sep 12, 2017

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

Philip Rivers falls short in comeback at Denver Broncos: “This was as loud as I can remember this place” (Kyle Newman, Denver Post)
"This was as loud as I can remember this place," Rivers said. "I felt like we handled it — we had a false start the first play of the game, but we didn’t have any more silly penalties like that. But it was definitely a home-field advantage, and noise was definitely a factor. It was as hard to communicate as I’ve ever had here. That’s what makes it both so awesome and so challenging."

But in the first game of Woods' tenure as the Broncos' defensive signal-caller, the Broncos offered what they hope is a preview of what's to come.

The Broncos refusal to bend on the ground was defined by one crunching tackle early in the fourth quarter.

Trevor Siemian has remained true to himself through two years of Broncos QB competitions (Nicki Jhabvala, Denver Post)
Something changed in Trevor Siemian the first week of August, when training camp practices hit a rhythm and coordinator Mike McCoy installed more and more of his complex offense. The switch was noticeable to most, as Siemian appeared more consistent on the field and more sarcastic off.
