Game manager Teddy Shitwater was named the starter today by Vic Fangio who obviously has something against him.

I expect Shitwater to be benched by mid season.

Hopefully the Blackos stumble out of the gate. Faggio went with the perceived safe option which will cost him his job Bridgewater failed miserable last year when gifted the job in Carolina. A positive is that the Broncos don't have much to root for anyways. From what I have seen and read Lock seemed like the better performer during training camp.

Broncos are content to dink n dunk and run the ball with washed up Gordon. They think they can ride their Defense again to a Super Bowl..Not likely this time.

They could have signed Mitch Trubisky for cheap but they'd rather trade a draft pick for a player who's never had more than 15 touchdown passes in a season in his 6 year career. Yet somehow he's better than Trubisky, according the the MSM. Unreal.

They would be better served bringing Peyton Manning out of retirement. I am “confused” but not “surprised” by this decision. The language in the sports reporting is what always really gets me, I guess because I still have an attention span past the previous sentence.

I will read that despite inconsistencies, Trey Lance “exudes exponentially more potential” with “athleticism” than Garoppalo. Drew Lock, on the other hand, does not “exude potential” but rather hurts the team despite his inconsistent flashes of brilliance, so Bridgewater gives the Broncos the best chance to win! Is this three card Monty or just “heads I win, tails you lose” rationale? We are expected to read these synopses one after another and nod with the expert sports journalists before beating off to a football season of nacho chips and auto leasing.

I know I’m venting to the crowd here.

Bad news:

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Broncos LB Josey Jewell (pec) is out for the season.
Monday testing on Jewell's Week 2 injury confirmed he tore his pectoral and will miss the remainder of the season. Jewell had seven tackles and a forced fumble through the season's first couple games. It's a setback for a Denver defense that has been one of the league's best in the young 2021 season.

Someone mentioned in the weekly thread that Jewell was likely injured while playing Special Teams! WTF? Why is your starting MLB playing any special teams?! I guess Fangio couldn't find any other pale faces to be WSTDs and spare his starter!

Is that the only White man on defense? The Broncos were already ridiculously black before this injury. I hope they lose the rest of their games.

Yep, and of course he's the one starter the DWFs love to hate on despite his very solid play.

Sad to see the Broncos' decline. They were at least a middle-of-the-road Caste team just a couple of years ago.

Extremely foolish trade by Denver for Russell Wilson. The Broncos gave up far too much. They obviously saw what the Rams accomplished this year and think they can replicate it. Unfortunately for them, first of all Wilson is not as good as Stafford, and second, they have no receiver who even comes close to Cooper Kupp.

Rough trade for Broncos fans, for sure. Could Drew Lock get a shot in Seattle, maybe?

For me, Denver just went from a team with a black quarterback to... no change.

The rest of the team may be Black but the Broncos have a chance to have two overachievers starting at ILB this season. And screw the Eagles for screwing over Singleton -- 137 tackles as a part-time player is crazy good:

Broncos signed ILB Alex Singleton to a one-year contract.
Singleton resurfaces in Denver after the Eagles declined his tender as a restricted free agent. A run stopper, Singleton had 137 tackles in a sub-package role with Philly and projects to play opposite Josey Jewell on early downs. Singleton will also help the Broncos on special teams after playing over 50% of snaps there last season.

Couple of bright spots on defense is a bonus. Singleton balls out since arriving from CFL and still gets zero respect from Filthadelphia.

Note the cognitive dissonance from this DWF moron. He notes Alex Singleton's spectacular production (some of it as a part-time player), yet somehow he sucks against both the pass and the run, and then he touts a Black special teamer "with insane athleticism" to start instead of Singleton:

"Josey Jewell is solid and is going to continue to play well for the Denver Broncos. However, who is going to start next to him? Alex Singleton is not a good linebacker. Singleton started at linebacker the past two seasons for the Eagles and accumulated 257 total tackles. His PFF grades are less than stellar, though, and there’s a reason why he only signed for a hair over $1 million with the Broncos. He is not good against the pass and is poor against the run. In an ideal world, Singleton plays sparingly on defense and logs most of his snaps on special teams.

"The other option to start for the Denver Broncos next to Josey Jewell is Jonas Griffith, who was a special teamer with the 49ers before being traded to Denver, where he got to show his insane athleticism and quickness. Maybe he’s not quite ready yet, but he showed some promise, and I think he has a real shot at starting."

Cognitive dissonance is right. Sadly far too many Americans are this way. It’s the same type that will be triple vax’d and boosted and get Covid. Then instead of questioning its usefulness, they say “well thank goodness for it cuz it kept me out of the hospital”.

I don’t think we can ever get through to this segment of the population on anything. They are too far gone and probably literally brain damaged.

I'd be willing to bet that this same hive mind writer campaigned against Josey Jewell from the day the Broncos drafted him, part of the media-driven herd who could never overlook his pedestrian 40 time and take a fair look at just how good of a linebacker he actually was for the Broncos. It took (surprisingly so) PFF to finally give Jewell excellent grades, followed by Jewell recently being re-signed to starter's money (though on the low end) for the narrative to finally change. So now this DWF mindlessly parrots the new narrative, writing above, "Josey Jewell is solid." Oceania has always been at war against East Asia.

WR Trey Quinn (6'-0 200) Signed with the Broncos last week....he has had some unfortunate injuries in his short career mostly on Punt Returns with the Redskins
In Three seasons has played just a total of 16 games ....2 TD's (one vs. Cowboys on Thanksgiving his Rookie season!)

First he "broke an ankle" jumping up and landing a few years ago and went on IR
Then the next season dirty helmet to helmet on a Punt Return sustaining a "Concussion" prompting an Ejection..
And was waived by the Raiders on an injury settlement last pre-season with a "Hamstring" injury.

In college at LSU/SMU one NFL Scout compared Quinn to Brandon Stokely. Too bad he didn't have Peyton Manning throwing to him!

It's great he is getting a 3rd chance to make and stick on an nfl team. Pretty rare for a white receiver who hasn't proven he belongs at this level yet. I do
believe he has the talent and hope he can stay healthy long enough to make a big impact. Happy to hear about this. Thanks for posting it.

Thanks for the update. Maybe the Broncos
can look past their caste ways of the last decade and give the kid an honest chance! Good luck to Mad Max Borghi!
