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.”

Local man draws upon middle school experience to help NFL coaching staff

A local man from Denver attended the Denver Broncos intra-squad scrimmage on Saturday, and found himself in a position to aid his favorite NFL team.

57-year-old Don Wisniewski has been cheering for the Broncos since he was a boy, but during the practice session, he saw the offense struggling to get on track. Instead of getting frustrated, he kept his cool, and helped out the team.

“I know we have two young quarterbacks in Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, and our defense features a very good pass rush.” Wisniewski stated in a post-scrimmage press conference. “I remembered from my playing days on the middle school football team, that sometimes a screen pass, or a draw play can slow down those edge rushers.”

Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was going through his scrimmage game-plan when he heard Wisniewski’s suggestion from the sideline.

“We were having a tough time getting much continuity from our young quarterbacks, and we were seeing Cover 2 from the defense. So I was looking at a double slant, with a quick hitch on the backside, to get the ball out quickly.” McCoy revealed. “But when I heard Don’s suggestion from the crowd, it was like a godsend.”

McCoy quickly changed the play call to a screen pass, and Lynch connected with running back C.J. Anderson for an eight-yard gain, and a first down.

“I’m just glad I was able to recognize the problem, and offer a solution.” Wisniewski said. “Hopefully Coach McCoy has learned a valuable lesson today.”
