Paxton Lynch brought to tears upon realization that he is the next Brock Osweiler

The Denver Broncos lost their seventh game in a row on Sunday, this time to the Oakland Raiders, by a score of 21-14. One of the bigger stories to come out of the game was the reaction of starting quarterback Paxton Lynch following an ankle injury late in the third quarter.

Paxton-Lynch-595x292

Television cameras caught Lynch on the bench in tears, and many speculated that it was due to the injury he sustained, or perhaps his poor performance in the starting role. Lynch finished the game 9 for 14 with just 41 yards, with one interception, and the Broncos failed to score a single point with him in the game.

However, following the game, the Daly Dose was able to catch up with Lynch, and he revealed what it was that had upset him so much.

“No, it wasn’t the injury. That was just a twisted ankle.” Lynch sobbed. “It just hit me that I am destined to be the next Brock Osweiler., and that is devastating.”

“You go to great lengths to insure something like this won’t happen.” Lynch continued. “But I gave it my all yesterday, and I couldn’t throw it in the ocean. I remember when Brock got the job last year in Houston, it was the same thing. He could not hit even a stationary target. And now, here I am following in his footsteps. Here we are, both tall, inaccurate quarterbacks that were both drafted way to high, getting beat out by some seventh round scrub.”

“I’m not going to lie. It hurts. The only difference is, at least he somehow got a big contract. Can you tell the Cleveland Browns that I’m really good? Maybe they’ll pay me too.”

It is rivalry week in college football, and there are a number of impactful matchups to watch over the holiday weekend.

Broncos players clarify “We aren’t soft, we just suck.”

Denver Broncos players have bristled at the statement made by executive vice president of football operations and general manager John Elway last week.

Speaking at a Friday night event, Elway told those in attendance that Broncos had gotten “a little bit soft” this season, and that has contributed to Denver’s current 3-7 record.

Following their loss on Sunday to the Cincinnati Bengals, a number of players spoke out in dispute of Elway’s claims that they have gotten soft.

Denver Broncos vs. Cincinnati Bengals, NFL Week 11

“We have Brock Osweiler starting at quarterback, and you’re telling me that I have gotten soft?” asked linebacker Von Miller. “I don’t think so, bro.”

“This team had very high hopes going into the season that we could contend for another title.” cornerback Chris Harris Jr stated Monday morning. “But Trevor (Siemian) really struggled early, our offensive line can’t block anyone, and Brock Osweiler is now our starting quarterback. You know what has gotten soft? Our personnel scouting department.”

Monday morning, the Broncos fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, who told the Daly Dose that he felt frustrated by the failure of his offense. “I have been trying to get this offense to become a functional unit. and it has not been easy. I mean, I got Tim Tebow to win a playoff game, but Brock Osweiler? Talk about your hands being tied.”

Defensive end Derek Wolfe echoed those same sentiments. “I don’t know that this defense has gotten soft. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but we currently have a guy starting at quarterback that couldn’t make the Cleveland Browns roster. I mean, think about this. Brock freaking Osweiler is our starting quarterback. We aren’t soft, we just suck.”

Jerry Jones threatens to sue Atlanta Falcons after Sunday blowout

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been threatening to sue the NFL, and some of its fellow owners, over contract negotiations with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

On Sunday, Jones stated that he also plans to sue the Atlanta Falcons for beating his Cowboys 27-7 in their Week 10 contest.

5664352_drunk-jerry-jones-sleepwalking-past-rick_t12589943

His feud with Goodell stems from Jones’s anger over the commissioner’s suspending of Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys’ star running back, who was accused of domestic violence by his former girlfriend. Goodell sentenced Elliott to a six-game suspension, even though no charges were filed in the case, and Sunday was the first game that the Cowboys were without their star runner.

In Elliott’s absence, Dallas managed just 233 total yards, as the Falcons sacked Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott eight different times.

Following the game, Jones told the Daly Dose of his plans to file a suit against the Falcons franchise.

“It was unfair what they did to us on Sunday.” Jones ranted. ” They knew that we didn’t have Zeke in that backfield, and they took advantage of us. The Falcons are an NFL bully, and they picked on us on Sunday, because we are smaller and weaker.”

“It’s the same thing with the NFL.” he continued. “They like to bully us, because we are a small market franchise, just trying to carve out our place in a very competitive league. So I am going to sue the Falcons. I am going to sue the NFL. I am going to sue Johnny Walker Black for this glass being empty, and I am going to sue the Daly Dose if you tell anyone about this conversation.”

The Houston Astros won the World Series over the Los Angeles Dodgers, and we have some thoughts on what their big win means.
