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.”

As we are heading for the final stretch of the NFL season, we can see that there are a number of teams that are beginning to look like the favorites. Yet, as good as some of these teams look, they do still have some flaws that could cost them down the stretch.

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.”

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.”
