Posted Sep 13, 2017

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

“I won’t say exactly what he said, but Peyton threw a zinger at Trevor, and it was incredible to hear how Trevor spit one back in Peyton’s face. And I’m going, I love this. Mr. Manning, you’ve got a little bit of a challenge with this rookie. Trevor doesn’t get intimidated easily.”

Green’s catch was the longest by a Broncos tight end since November 2013, when Julius Thomas caught a 74-yard touchdown from Peyton Manning, and it was a sign that maybe, just maybe, the positional group that has lagged for the past two years is experiencing a revival under offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

The Broncos’ run defense showed improvement Monday and if they can contain Prescott, I think they have a chance.

"This is what you want, I'm happy to be 1-0, happy to help the team win," said Harris -- an optimist who has had his optimism tested plenty in his football career. "And happy to finally be part of a great defense, so whatever I can do is what I want to do."
