Broncos, Briefly: Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017

Posted Nov 29, 2017

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

Talib's suspension, though reduced, still hurts Broncos plenty (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
Given that Talib has been named to the Pro Bowl three times and been a first-team All-Pro selection once (in 2016) in his four years with the Broncos, he will certainly be missed in coverage. He's also earned enough cache in the Broncos' locker room that his teammates voted him captain.

Fluctuation at quarterback continues in one of the most unstable seasons at the position in Broncos history (Nick Kosmider, Denver Post)
Before 2003, you have to go back to John Elway‘s rookie season in 1983 to find the last time the Broncos used three starting quarterbacks. And this is just the seventh time since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 that the Broncos have started more than two quarterbacks in the same season. The common thread in all of those seasons: None included a playoff victory.

Lunch Special: How seriously are the Broncos taking their worst losing streak in decades? (Nicki Jhabvala, Denver Post)
Very seriously. This notion that players have become lackadaisical or just don’t care is ridiculous. This is their job, their reputation. And to even make it to this level, they have a competitive edge that most normal people can’t even fathom.
