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.

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.”

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.

“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.

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.”

Denver Broncos “shocked” that Brock Osweiler didn’t salvage their season

After a 51-23 beatdown at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Denver Broncos management is at a loss. They had benched starting quarterback Trevor Siemian, and inserted veteran Brock Osweiler into the starting lineup, with hopes of an immediate turnaround. However, those hopes were dashed on Sunday as Osweiler finished the game 19 for 38 with just 208 yards, and two interceptions in the loss.

Osweiler

“We had expected Brock Osweiler to really give our season a lift.” stated head coach Vance Joseph. “Obviously, there was a flaw in our thinking. We knew in the back of our minds that he sucks. Everyone knows he sucks. So, that was a mistake on our part.”

Vice President of Football Operations John Elway spoke to the surprise that he felt as Osweiler and the Broncos struggled on Sunday.

“We had considered Brock to be kind of an ace in our sleeve.” Elway told the Daly Dose. “But I couldn’t tell the difference between Brock and Trevor in this game, except that Brock is taller (Osweiler is 6’8″ while Siemian is listed as 6’3″) other than that he looked exactly the same.”

“When we drafted Brock back in 2012, we felt like he could be a talented player, with a bright future in the NFL. That hasn’t turned out the way that we would have liked. Paxton Lynch has also been disappointing so far. After the loss on Sunday, I think we have no choice but to look to the future. I think it is apparent that we will need to draft another quarterback for this team. I think it is also apparent that he needs to be taller. I am hoping to find a quarterback out there that is in the 6-foot-9 or 6-foot-10 range. A seven-footer would be ideal. I think that would mean a big improvement for our offense.”

Bandwagon NFL fan feeling disoriented after confusing start to the season

A 38-year-old man in Southern California is feeling very bewildered after a rollercoaster start to the NFL season.

Lewis Meyer, a Los Angeles native, and admitted front runner fan, says that he is suffering from a feeling of disorientation about which NFL team to pretend to cheer for.

“Usually it is pretty simple.” stated Meyer. “I pick one of the favorites and go buy a t-shirt or two and get real vocal at work about my rooting interest, but this year has been tough. The Cowboys are up and down, the Patriots don’t play any defense, and the Packers look terrible without Aaron Rodgers.”

Is there a temptation to just cheer for one of the teams from his hometown?

“That’s when you know things are crazy.” Meyer countered. “The Rams actually look like they could be a contender, but I haven’t cheered for them since they were the “Greatest Show on Turf”, and when they lost that Super Bowl, it really hurt me. I vowed then and there, that I would not root for them again, unless I really knew they had a chance to win something. I have been a Raiders fan before but they are struggling, and the 49ers are terrible.”

The Chargers seem to be heating up, after winning two games in a row.

“I’m not falling for that again.” he responded. “They have hurt me so many times. It is just a matter of time before they do it again.”

“I had an aunt once who lived in Pennsylvania. Maybe I could pretend to be an Eagles fan until something better comes along.” he continued. “It’s a tough time to be true fan, right now.”
