"Com Bread Kristall RKO Broncos insider. He's gonna join us in the next segment, the latest on the injuries. Good trends at their Benjamin. You are out of practice today. Give me some boots on the ground per cent perspective here. The team they stretched really? Well, very good stretching. I was so looking forward to this far is you set out the picture of the stretch, and I'm like, I can't wait till we get some blow. Our conversation back and forth at that point was because the media we know is so limited. It is You're basically there just to see who might be practised. And really, That's the reason I was there as I was. I was there to do some other things, and I was just happened to be just happened to line up with practice was, like, all right, I'm gonna go pop in and take a look and see. You know who's doing what That kind of thing. So we're not allowed to give out specifics on who practiced with whom and all that kind of stuff, But I can tell you that Melvin Gordon was there. I can tell you that Drew lock number three on your jersey number one in your heart and on the depth chart was there S so you, you throw at me. There's some videos out there. You're right. Easy. A few of those I could raise five minute film window or whatever, all that kind of stuff, But yeah, I would let me How do you look for those? Ah, good ball. Good. Ah, The velocity was there and didn't show any signs and it's noticeable and you didn't show any signs of drop off. Didn't look uncomfortable Throwing the ball was stretching his arm after every throw. It wasn't doing anything. Nothing like it was any pain at all. He's getting in full practices. It was very accurate with his throwing in the limited time that I saw Jeff Driscoll was Jeff Driskel on Blake Bortles still has that weird side arm loopy motion. Think down. He was more accurate than Driscoll, but it takes him forever to wind up in front of you all like he's a quicker decision maker than Driscoll. But by the time he winds up and throws it, it's almost 61. Half a dozen the other but the ball get now let me ask you something here before we hear from Graham Glascow, and he's got some cool stuff to say about the offensive line. You'll hear a question about running backs. I want to get to that conversation just a second wall to get into some of the things I did some research on as relates to the Patriots matchup, but When it comes to the Broncos, keeping four quarterbacks how much longer they're going to do that? Week or two. Maybe, and who? Who survives the survivor? We do Spider Island School and Blake Bortles air fighting it out to be that guy Brett rip into staying? Yes, for his performance on the backup and at first, But he is and after his performance on Thursday night football, you can't get him back to the practice squad. This'll lead is too thirsty for competent quarterback play to be able to put Brett rip and back on the practice squad, looking at what he was able to do with what he was able to do it with on a short week, zero chance you get him back to the practice squad, right? Kind of thought. So. So now it's about July being healthy. And if he's healthy enough and rip it is there. You gotta figure out which one of these other guys your third and and go from there. Who would you choose like portals? Not just because of the A good place. There's absolutely goggles on and then they reveal you know that Bortles has been traded. Whatever fools hate to break it to you, Jason Black. So not just because of the good place right now. The borders because there's not anything that Jeff Driskel does. The Blake Bortles can't do and do better. Old Mobile. Yes, they're both mobile. They both have a big, big arm like I startled you choose the bronze. Getting kidding. They both have. They both do are less accurate than the other two quarterbacks. I'll put it that way on DH, You know, they're both throw better football than I do. So who am I to sit there saying Why did the Broncos? Why did the Broncos take Jeff Driskel over Blake Bortles this offseason wasn't mortals out there, I think because they played against Jeff Driscoll and I kind of saw him. Yeah, And there was like a known commodity there. I mean, look, the Broncos played the lions, and they went out there and they Grab like three or four players from that loser franchise. You No, wait. We need ground glass Cow, Winnie Jeff Driskel. We need the punter. Anybody also what overhears or anybody else we need like the Broncos went window shopping at the end of season. I mean, it's a good point. I mean, they got that firsthand. Look at him, so they got a good look at it. I think that's what it was. I think they felt better because it's not the first time they've gotta look at Jennifer School. Very true. So I think a couple looks at him and you know, it always sees himself in Jeff Driskel. And says, Okay, Here's a veteran guy who started a dozen games or so moments not to be too big for him. He's not going to threaten Drew lock it anyway, in terms of being the starter. So he could be a veteran and not have we don't have to worry about if locked, tanked. You know that kind of thing Because there is a there's a fans don't realise this, I guess, but there's sort of a PR in a mitigation aspect of this their egos in a locker room. You have to balance their things like that you have to do and you get in there. You can't have a quarterback if your if this is an audition year for Chulak You can't have a guy that's pushing him. Dividing that locker room internally. You can't have that. Yeah, I know. You told me that coming into it. I still maintain the higher level of play and backup would have been preferred. But you know what? Brett rip and he looks the part. He looks like exactly what you need to see that the problem I had with this and then we'll go to down too far down the rabbit hole. The problem I have with this is I knew what Jeff Driskel wass. We all did. Jeff Driscoll was and and he was borderline at the competent backup that you're looking for, like you can play, but it has to be the right circumstances. You got your great offensive line. You're great Offensive line..

"Edwards, Benjamin Alright, hit us up on the phone. 303713 85 85. 56690 cortex line. Yes, of course. Tragic passing of Eddie Van Halen Been a pretty popular topic an unfortunate thing passing away due to cancer. 65 years old 65 Man answers the worst the absolute worst. I been I got out of my car and did a jumping toe touch on the side of I 25 Memory. And then ran back into my car. Miss. None of that happened. No, I know That's why I was like, How far do you want this? Tio? Take it for a while. But at what point? Do you want me to just stop you or, you know, just let me just let me explore MySpace. It's usually better usually better if I do that. So all right. 323713 85 85 star phone over 56 16 0 is the text line. So thoughts and prayers, of course, go out to the Van Halen family. Ah, lot of impressive tributes going out and when you lose a legend like that, a music legend. You sort of expect that to be the case. I know that earlier beyond Jo Jo, you guys covered that a little bit. I've heard that throughout the day as our Rick Lewis from Logan and Lewis. And, of course with the Broncos Game day between that out as well about Eddie Van Halen. So again, thoughts and prayers go out to his family. We have a We have a big show for you tonight here on Broncos Country tonight and talk about Mike Purcell here in a matter of moments, talking about his extension. Through 2023 good news for a good guy. I'll get to the latest with Cam Newton. There is some news on Cam Newton that we will share with you a matter of moments. All of Famer Steve Outward joins us in the next segment. Also, tank Williams with Yahoo is going to join us in the tank. Think what's that these pretty entertaining daily fantasy snippets? He picked Jeff Driskel a couple of weeks ago, so he might not be coming on in the best mood about the Broncos. Jeff Driskel versus Tampa Bay, did you What? Azzedine FESPIC. To avoid no To play to play for money. Yeah. Had he ever seen Jeff Driskel play before? Well, you cited what he did against the Steelers. And said, I I think that he's gonna be able to find success against Tampa Bay. Well, we've all been wrong on occasion, so we're going to find out What kind of Moody isn't about the Broncos. Just like if I say Jeff Driskel? What do you say? Kind of moment? Why Uh, in the meat side, though we have a poll question. We're going to be putting up here in a matter of moments that you can check out at K Way, Colorado. When that gets up, I will let you know about it, but is on the heels of Mike Purcell getting his contract. First of all, Let's Let's talk a little bit about Mike Purcell. We're here from him and it just second. He spoke with the media earlier today, but when you saw this this extension through 2023 around 15,000,006 20230.8 guaranteed thereabouts. What do you think? Good for Mike Purcell. Interesting. That you're paying him starting nose tackle money to be the starting nose tackle for the next three years Given that you drafted McKelvin Akeem I don't know what you were planning on doing with him. Is he going to be the replacement to shall be Harris? Perhaps because you've already drafted Draymond Jones you spent. You know you spent some draft capital of some guys along that defensive line. And so it's It's gonna be interesting to see exactly I just that that probably means you're not gonna pay Shelby. That could mean that I natural Casey already. I think it's a little early to have those conversations. I think some of that stuff is still playing itself out. But I see your point. We're thinking. Okay, well, this guy's your guy threw 2023. I guess you're paying him to be the starter at nose. Tackle me tell that again and I never looked at as a nose. So I guess I mean, did you think that Mattel video game is going to be your future knows? I mean, maybe he's a big, big body. He's a big boy. You know he's got size and the you can't work into some rotation there. A little bit of his home was probably the three tech but he's you know, I mean, he could easily play. The 10 means he's a big boy. He played one or zero back, you know, back in college, so I I don't know. I like to move. I'm happy for my purse. Eldon could be wrong. Just interested to see what this means down trays for the rest of the defense. Okay, well, here's Mike Purcell, reacting today of getting that contract extension. It's It's amazing. It's a complete lesson. That's for sure. You know, the Jenny has been up and down. You know, there's this multiple times where you know, like you said it would be over. You know, maybe it's time to move on. Savary career, You know, working whatever it may be let to be home. Only your uncle. Everything like that. My family and I just received excited. Yeah, You've been cut 10 times. Six different teams. Yeah, it's not including the Alliance of American football. We went out there and played for 70,000 bucks, You know, And what a story. I guess that is of perseverance and sticking with it. And ultimately, you know, kind of cashing in there..

"I do like about the Jets defense. Is there d line there deep, especially injury, guys. A couple of guys there. There's some planet with 20. Williams is good. He's really admires my guys. A horse. Who else would I like There's nothing. I want to get his name right here. Steve McClendon. McClendon's always been a bit of solid. Got some good guys. They're in the interior that the Broncos have a tough time. Doing whatever they want to be able to throw the ball. I think as long as they can hold up against the past Russian there will be passed Rush because not only against the interior, but also because you just know Gregg Williams is dialing up is going to tell them because that's what the Broncos suck at, right, really, really bad right against the Bloods. Did you see the have you seen the blitz numbers like Pittsburgh. Tampa Bay's Jeff Driskel holds on the ball too long, and he's not going to be a problem anymore because you're not gonna be in there. I got Brett rip and they got they got Brett. I have o'clock. I'm going to stop watch. Do you want to see my tweet just a little bit ago. I'm particularly proud of this one have been off the Twitter. What's up? Why it kind of comes off the heels of something you told us last week as we were prepping for Jeff Driskel versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and how he was workin at wide receiver. Oh, use out there in Cincinnati. So when somebody asked Vic Fangio of draft. Driscoll was going to be worked in, I quote, Tweeted, said a wide receiver. Yeah, I think a lot of people don't know that he left school when he was with the Cincinnati Bengals in camp before he was signed by the Lions, hey, had fallen down the death charge all the way to fourth behind Ryan Finley and Jacob de Lingala. Ah and Andy Dalton on the Bengals Death chart and s. So when the media was around, they would leave him with the quarterback group. And then as soon as the media left would immediately move him over a wide receiver on and see if you could do anything there and then they cut him course. And he went to the lines. But, yeah, Uh, on the attacks line from Chris Steve Smith Sr was not a fan of Fangio on big on Joe Johns Go back. I didn't see that He was on their program. Want to go check that out, But Steve Smith has never cared for a defensive minded head coach, though. No, I guess that's a good thing. You ever heard that dude compliment because he was all used to lambaste Rex Ryan all the time. It's amazing when when a team is losing. It's like everything is up for grabs, right? I mean, mile on his own, And that's what it kind of feels like being like. Okay. So you're so Vic Fangio was three. No. Would you be coming on the air and saying I love Vic Fangio? It's got to mean the same thing at the same time. You know, it's what we're talking about after the Titans game. Remember that we said if they had found a way to win the game, the issues that happened within the game we're still there. They just held on to win that. That has to be the way these things are broken down because otherwise you're just reactionary, and that's when you get the hot takes. Otherwise, you're just going off well, the difference between a win loss and that you know the NFL. ITT's It all is fairly thin margins. Unless you're the elite of the elite playing the bottom end of the NFL teams, it's all relatively close. It's all within a score most the time. It's who executes in game and takes advantage of Momenta. Really? I mean, that kind of boils down to those things doesn't even between the middling in the great teams. It really is about, you know, executing one. It is that you do of not making mistakes, not turning the football over. You know, you turned football over twice in a game, probably lose. No matter how good you are, you know, and some of that could be just the ball flooding out of your hands. Somebody could be just you know something? There's all kind of little things that could happen here there, and that's what separates even the great teams from the truly middling in the NFL. Now the Jets aren't accidentally going to get somebody like that. But you know, and I'm clouding the Jets right now, but but for a reason, because if the Broncos lose to this, then we have a problem. We need to talk about it. But my point is, is. Would you come on the air and say I'm not a big fan of this coach? If they're three? No, nobody would do that. It would sound so that would sound weird unless you were going to say I don't like his style or you know his delivery and whatever, but if you're three, no winning masks a lot. And all of a sudden no water here is all ill. Does the water taste a little sweeter? The air is a little more fresh. I mean, it's just It's a shame it fixes everything, then. Well, yeah, And that's that. Really is the thing. You know, I think that, uh yeah. Broncos need to get a win out of this one. I I don't want to. I don't want to go far off track here, but the Broncos need to get a win in this When they need to come out. They need to win this one. They need to win it decisively. They need to kind of run it up a little bit. To be honest with you. Get your swagger back. Get your confidence back, You know, get back to not well, we You know, we put one over the Jets. You need to get back to Hey, we could We could get first downs. You know the two worst teams, the NFL At first downs. The Jets. The Broncos just 32nd brokers.

Oh, Andy Green in the desert right now, where the Cardinals have finally pulled in front and the Cardinals did plot in front. The last time we talked college way, just 30 reception, But there isn't a defense held Detroit to a field goal. Then Mary got the ball back. 11 Place 75 yard drive that company with a four yard touchdown pass to Andy Isabella is about second touchdown grab of the game. And a surgeon is Korean one touchdown all of last season. The second season two today that Cardinals have the lead 23 2 20. The Lions have the ball facing a second intent from their own 10 yard line as we enter the fourth quarters, So the Cardinal's up three heading in before, All right, thank you very much, and the Cardinals finally getting in gear. It has been a rough day for Kyla Murray, but he has hooked up with Andy Isabella twice. And that is the difference right now. Keep getting tougher for the Jets as the Colts just piling it on and not much they could do about it. But the Seahawks, also in front by AH by two touchdowns right now, against the Cowboys, midway through the third quarter in Seattle. The Buccaneers defense has really done a great job. It has not been about Tom Brady. Today. It has been about the books defense. Just crushing Jeff Driskel throughout the day, and they have a 15 point lead as well. But right now, Carolina on top by a score of 21 to 10 5.5 minutes left in the fourth quarter, but the Chargers facing a first and goal from the 20 yard lines, but times certainly becoming a factor. Jody this five minutes love they need the ball twice and I need to get they got they got to get. They've got to get everyone going. Teddy Bridge border has been what Teddy Bridgewater can be rather efficient. He's not gonna pick your part. He's not going to go up top and throw for 3 50. But he's going to hit a high percentage of his passes, which is going to give his team the time of possession battle and, Ah, it's actually pretty close in this game. But when the charges have Needed the ball back Ted. He's been able to grind out first down. So Justin Herbert up against it a little bit here. Game's not over because as you mentioned there within 11 in, which is a two score game to punk Aborigine, plus a touch unpleasant to and a field goal, so this one still hangs in the balance. Potato Bridgewater has done a hell of a job today, keeping that Carolina offense moving without their biggest weapon, Mr McCaffrey. Alright, let's head out to Kevin Shockey in Seattle right now. Well, guys, a common talking point going into this season has been the Russell Wilson never received an MVP vote. It's a dumb point, but it is true. I bring it up because Russell Wilson is doing things that no quarterback has ever done this year and might very well be on his way to his first. He has at least four touchdown passes and each of his first three games and here's the list of players that have done that in NFL history. Russell Wilson That's it. He has 198 yards in those four touchdowns today. Tyler Lockett, the main beneficiary with seven cats, is for 79 yards and three touchdowns. All of them in the first half day came a calf three captains for 81 yards and would have a touchdown. But he had the ball poked out of his hand at the one yard line for what would have been a 63 yard touchdown catch instead of 62 yard catch and a trouble out of the back of the end zone for a touchback. Zeke Elliott has had a terrible day. 18 carries in the 18 yards on 11 carries one cat's fur loss of four yards. His one yard touchdown run about the only thing making it not a terrible day overall. So with six minutes and 26 seconds left in this third quarter, the sea officer leading the Cowboys 30 15, Alright, thank you very much. Kevin Shockey in Seattle. That said, too. Bruce Morton in Denver right now the Buccaneers, adding to their lead Freidrich. We've got one of three left in the third quarter and the pewter people are lading 25 to 10. Tom Brady is thrown three touchdown passes, one to Chris God went to to Mike Evans both of those touchdowns from a yard out. Adding to the box point total this quarter is former Bronco Shack. Barrett, the linebacker who sacked Jeff Driskel in the end zone for a safety. Barrett has two sacks on the day. Driscoll, one touchdown 14 of 24 for 157 Brady 24 of 37 for 271 and six of those catches today from Brady from Rob Gronkowski the Bucks or driving their on the Denver 18 trying to add on We've got 48 seconds to go in the third quarter 25 to 10, Tampa Bay, All right, and to Chuck a Z in L. A. It's now a five point game, Chuck Is Chuck there? All right. Chuck is not there. Ah, okay, we'll go back to Andrew Smith in the meantime, where the cults of and it's a more points.

"Joining me now, Dave when it comes to the game plan for today, the differences between what Pat Shurmur and what patron was able to do it through locked versus what he's going to do with Jeff Driskel. I don't know if it's going to be significant, but I'm interested to see it. Yeah, I think Run. I think it will be fairly similar to tell you the truth. I mean, both of those quarterbacks or mobile. Driscoll was the guy that we talked about this this week when he when he came out of college at out of Louisiana Tech. He ran 45 something at the combine. So he's an excellent athlete. Much The same I think is drew lock him in that particular category. I think you want to try to get the ball out of his hands early against this Tampa Bay front. Uh, big and strong. They have an ability to rush the passer. They have six sacks in the first two weeks. And what you don't want to do. They also are in the top two or three teams, The NFL creating turnovers and you do not want to give this game to Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Obviously, by turning the ball over and allowing them to work on a short field is we're here and empower field at Mile high. We're actually going to have some fans here today, so it's going to be exciting in that regard. Red Brick Lewis, My color analyst joins me now, Rick, Of course, we've done two games one from empower field at mile high with virtually no fans. They had a few family members of the Bronco players and friends. But today with 5700, I would guess will, it least have a little bit of Juice. Legitimate juice in the stadium. Yeah, David. Not that I don't mind hanging out with you exclusively through the pandemic, but I got to say it's great to see some cars in the parking lot. Yes, people in the building. We got more cardboard cutouts here today. We'll talk about that later. And you have 5700 fans in the building. This is going to feel a lot more like a real football game today. I hope they make a lot of noise today and at least I hope this football team out a little bit because they need to get a win. Today. They get a win here today. You got a short week going to New York to play a Ah Bad Jets team And then everything would seem pretty good in the world of the Denver Broncos. So You know, I feel pretty optimistic about this game here today. I really do. I feel like this is no us. This is Noah Slama on drew lock, but I feel like Jeff Driskel Andrew lock Are about the same at this point of Drew locks career. I don't think you're losing much. With Jeff Driskel at quarterback here today. I think he's going to play as good as he played last week. And I think this football team's got a chance to win here today. I think that when you look at Tampa Bay and again, it's a small sampling. Certainly sample size with respect to some of the stats that the Buccaneers have been able to achieve. They were very good defense last year over 16 game regular season this was the top five defense. In several of the categories, But they've been tough to run against in the first couple of weeks, ranked fourth in the NFL, given up less than 85 yards per game in the ground as that mentioned their second or tied for fifth in interceptions. They're tied for third and fumble recoveries and second and takeaways. And so I think ball Security's going to be very, very important, and I think you've got a test. Tampa Bay's Front with your running game because you don't want to turn this into what the Broncos had to deal with last week in Pittsburgh, and that was throwing the ball a number of times and turning loose a very good pass rushing front. Yeah, it happens. Been really good against the run the last several years, So you have to test them today. That would really help Jeff Driskel today if the Broncos could run the ball, you know, Melvin Gordon is capable of doing that. Royce Freeman backup position. Philip Lindsey will not play today. You know Royce Freeman can carry the ball, too, if they can run the ball and play a clean, efficient game on offense. They got a real shot here today. I agree the Broncos and the Buccaneers. It's going to be a little bit cool cooler than we thought It might be for a late September kickoff temperatures in the high fifties when we kick it off just after two o'clock local time when we come back how the Broncos fared against Tom Brady over the years. You'll find out that and more next on the K O a Broncos radio network get away and.

"And I'm sure he's doing plenty of rehabbing, but that he could be out there in practice and could be a sounding board for the other two quarterbacks and can interact with my Chua and and obviously Pat Shurmur during practice about what they're saying, and what they're Trying to point out to the two cubes and soon to be three cubes that are on the field. You know, I just thought about something you just said. There's a name in our coaching ranks. That is a pretty unique name. And that name is Mike Shula. And the reason it's really unique is because he was the offensive coordinator for Cam Newton for all those years, and he was part of the college game because before he came back to the NFL Are we going to see more R P O type things Now that we have a quarterback that is Um, really a guy who can run with the football and it can open up this offense a little more. I think you will and Invicta touched on that as well. He said that you know, they have some of that in the offense and you may see it called out. I would have liked to maybe seen it on third into our fourth and two. I'm going to keep saying when you have a guy that runs 456. Why not at least getting on the edge or bootleg or something? Play action that allows them to use athleticism. So are they going to run what they're doing with Cam Newton and in New England right now, I don't know, because I'm just not great for business. Jeff Driskel's and built like Cam Newton. But I do think you will see them take advantage of of his speed a little bit more and and the RP. Oh, certainly when it's effective, keeps defense is honest. Yeah, And he did say today that you know they did practice the R P o with him. In training capture, and so hopefully that is something that you know. It will be interesting to see what things look like. All right, So let's get some of that audio from possibly.

"I mean, it was, you know, I like, never forget that image. Look like ball balls leg. It looked a little bit like Bobo's leg when he was seven. I think you're OK. That's a good I know The feeling analogy. Anytime you get a cast off you look at your limit. Go. My God, I'll never be the same. Oh, yeah. Looks terrible. It wasn't just skinny. It was like It was like a malnourished twig. Remember? I've never broken any bones in my body atrophy. It's just last he looking the dead skin. It shall have to stick it out. What was hangar down trying to if you get that spot in one of your legs, tan and the other one is not all there. Yeah, but that's you know, just thinking. I mean, I'm not even going to walk. Yeah, you know me that 12 weeks I get I get eight cast. I had surgery and probably late November early December of your by correct junior year, So I missed all that year of basketball, So they red shirted investable. But December January February I probably got out of the cast at the end of February. And I came back and play. That would have been my senior. You're coming up in football and I was ready to go for the first game unit ready? He was weird, Galia. And then I don't think they really knew how to rehab properly, either compared to what they know now. No. You just do quad exercises right? And once you were able to start, start walking on stairs and then jog in the stairs and then running on stairs. But you you know what it is best that remember the rehab program. I kind of did on my own. I don't I don't think they even had other than just to get you out of the cast and be able to walk. I don't think they had. That was mid seventies. They had rehab programs. So before we take a time out Bill in Littleton joins us on Kaylie News. Radio Morning, Bill. How are you? Ah, don't you find a little upset with yesterday's play calling? It seemed like you were a third of the yard and a half with three time mats to call, which should have called one. The sky was often line and backs and depends. If they're often people said Hey, we have blocked like hell for a yard and a half. I thought we hired a guy for $789 million to get that yard and a half. Where was Gordon? I I thought the play calling with very, very suspect. I think that that situation is certainly open for criticism, because a when you run something that doesn't work at a crucial time. Then you're gonna have people second guess, but I I am said during the during the broadcast, you know, But I said, even to spread them out and try to get Jeff Driskel in some sort of design Quarterback run, but third, too. You know you could. Yeah. In hindsight, I don't disagree with with your assertion. I really don't Well, that seems like, uh, coordinator. Schumer is just not what he's cut out to be it so far anyway, and, uh, picked banjos this just not managing the game very well. I'm sure that this doesn't look good tomato course the players play and the coaches don't play, so that's part of it all. Yeah, Bill. Thanks. Thanks for the call. I think it's too early and Pat Schumer to tell you the truth. I think they've done some pretty good things on offense, but I think you gotta let him settle in and again. I think the one guy that's probably been affected as much not from a physical standpoint, because players have been affected physically with one guy when you bring a new system in and you don't even get a chance to have ot a cz. You've got to conduct your meetings by zoom. You're trying to implement a new, certainly a new pass offense. I think the run game has a lot of similarities because they kept Mike Man check. But I think Pat Shurmur has been You know, in a difficult, difficult position, so I'm not ready to throw him out. Based on what I've seen in two games. I do think again, you know the third down and to call in the fourth and to call And we talked about it when we had Vic Fangio on fourth and two. If you're going to throw it there, and you probably have to throw it there. Then what? Pittsburgh shou defensively was fairly easy to see. In fact, the safety Terrel Edmonds was right in the line of scrimmage. You gotta change the protection slide to him, and he's blocked. Or you've got to make Melvin Gordon hot out of the backfield. They didn't either. I would say that's a byproduct of Jeff Driskel does not get any reps and getting thrown to the situation and plus getting his brains beat out for almost the entire time he was in. Took some sacks took a beaten is going to get all the reps this week and should be better prepared. He didn't play bad considering my girl thing. I thought he played pretty well. 11 26 the time we'll take a quick time. I don't care away. One knowing you.

"But you always have to be prepared for when that happens, and unfortunately Drew went down today and, you know my job is to give give the team a chance to win. And, um, you know, we just didn't get it done today, so we'll have to regroup. That's a good team that we played today and 40 teams. We just have to move forward and make those critical place at the end of the game. You have a couple of nice drives late in the third quarter. You guys were down 17 to 6. You go 65 yards in six places, and he had no offense with a nice little corner route on then you come back on the 54 year, driving five plays and find Melvin Gordon with a wheel route out of the backfield. I mean, it looked like, you know, I mean, this is a team that has led the league in sacks the last three seasons so they can put the mints pressure on any quarterback and they were able to get you on the ground seven times today. Yeah. I mean, we knew going into this week that they're good defense, but we also know that we have a good offense. We have good players. And, uh, you know some of those air some of those around me going to move around, get the ball out on time, especially when you're playing a really good team with the front that they have. And, Yeah, I just gotta find a way to get the ball out to my playmaker's hands. Like you like you mentioned. We do have playmakers all of the field. No doubt about that Last thing on, I thought because you were aware of the kind of athlete you are. How you could run the football. I thought a couple of times when you would empty that there might even be whether designed quarterback draw are just a way to get up in sight. That ever cross your mind with something like that, in terms of you just running the ball up into that defense. You know that with the flow of the game? That's just not. You know how things You know happen sometimes they happen. Naturally sometime. They're they're called plays, And I think there's probably one where I could scrambled for for a first down conversion and, Ah, you know, trying to scramble around to make a play? Sure, from the first half, But, yeah, I mean, that's part of the game. And sometimes those happen organically, and sometimes they're called. So, John With how today went. Those just didn't come up.

Thanks. I appreciate you bet. Jeff Driskel quarterback 18 to 34 against the defence like that, Uh, 256 yards, two touchdowns. One pick. I will say this. I think the Steelers are great in the box. Not so sure about the back end of this defense and looking at them moving forward getting down into the season. We'll see. We'll see. But you're not going to run the ball much on them. I don't think and you're gonna have a hard time protecting with the back end. I'll say I'll wait and see on that. Yeah. And if Drew lock is out for a few games or so, I think You can win football games with Jeff Driskel. I'd think he showed you today that that is ah possibility with him. He played really well. He's got to feel good about how we played. Of course you want to win a game. But he's certainly played. He gave me a chance to win. They were in it all the way to the end.

"Of mile highs. We've been broadcasting today for the first time ever. The Broncos regular season game in which were not actually at the venue. The Broncos with their first road game today in Pittsburgh, We were not able to go, obviously because of covert 19, and so we broadcasted from here. Ah, valiant effort with Broncos lose their second consecutive game to open this 2020 zombie apocalypse of a year is they fall to the Pittsburgh Steelers? Final score. 26 21, we wait. Vic Fangio's will talk with the head coach of the Broncos. In a moment you take a look at some of the statistics, never a 23 1st downs. The Steelers had 19 diverted a good job defensively against Pittsburgh's third down offense. Two of 12 were the Steelers on third down. Broncos were five of 15 running the football Broncos ran a 26 times for 104 yards, led by Melvin Gordon's 19 carries good for 70. The Steelers 22 carries for 109 yards. Connor had 16 of those good for 106 years, including The scamper of 59 yards on that last drive. So as we we talked about during the time out there in the broadcast before that long run of 59 yards the Steelers had under 50 yards of rushing against this Broncos defense. Throwing the football drew lock before he was injured, was one of five for 20 yards. Jeff Driskel came on and I thought acquitted himself very well for backup quarterback 18 of 34. For Driscoll. He did have the interception with that ball went right through the hands of Courtland sudden late in the first half Dressed go through for 256 yards. He had two touchdown pass has been Rafa's Burger, on the other hand, was 29 41 for 311 yards. He had two touchdowns did throw an interception. That was the first interception for the Broncos defense. In two games, and that was picked off by Justine Simmons, his 12th career interception for Roethlisberger, by the way, his 62nd 300 yard plus passing game. He now ties Brett Far in that category for seventh overall 62 career games of 300 yards, passing Orm or for Ben Roethlisberger catching the football. Smith Schuester for the Steelers had seven catches for 48 yards. Johnson Deonte Johnson, the other receiver, eight catches for 92 in a touchdown. The rookie receiver Chase Claypool had three for 88, including the 84 Yard touchdown strike from Roethlisberger. Ebron had three for 43 Washington three for 22 for the Broncos, Jerry Judy at four for 62 no offense. Four for 57, a touchdown core than sudden his first action of the season. Three catches good for 66 yards. Melvin Gordon. It too, for 14, including the one catch of 16 yards for a touchdown. Tim Patrick to for 24 Day, Shawn Hamilton had one for five. The Steelers. As they have been accustomed to doing. They led the National Football League and sacks the last three years. They had 34567 sacks today. For Pittsburgh one for the Broncos, T. J. What was credited with 2.5 sacks. He leads Pittsburgh in that category. The only sack for the Broncos today was Mike Purcell. That was a sack of 10 yards. So you look at this game, statistically plenty of plenty of things that the Broncos could've done total net yards. Denver finishes with 319. The Steelers with 410. Pittsburgh had had big plays. No question about that. As I mentioned the Claypool strike from 84 yards out, you have the 59 yard run right there. That's over 140 yards of their total on two snaps for the Broncos, Mohr snaps of office. The only had 59 last week they had 72 This week. In fact, they had eight more snaps of offense. Then did the Steelers. Denver fumbled the ball twice. They lost one of those two same statistic for the Steelers in penalties. The Steelers had 10 penalties for 89 yards. The Broncos only penalized four times for 30 in time of possession. Really nothing Teo to mention there. 30 31 for the Broncos 29. 29 for the Pittsburgh Steelers. When it's all said and done, Steelers find a way to hang on, and they beat the Broncos 26 2 21 again. We await head coach Vic Fangio for comments in the postgame. But Rick this is a game frustrating in so many ways, probably at the top of the list. The injury situation for the Broncos, and on top of that list would be Drew lock. We're not sure how badly he served badly enough. He could not continue after the first quarter arm injury. Yeah, really? The story of the day, At least post game is drew lock. And how bad is he going to be hurt? How many games will I miss? Jeff Driskel issue, said Dave did about his good jobs You could do coming off the bench as a backup quarterback and and really gave me a chance to win the football game. Steelers, the team that came up with the big plays when they needed to make him And with Ben Roethlisberger Day. This is something he's been doing forever. Hey, is just that guy. They couldn't get him on the ground today. Just one sack that was Mike Purcell early in the game. They just couldn't put any pressure on him. He had way too much time to throw. Yep. And on the sack. I mean, that was that was a screen pass being set up, right? I mean, that was that was the past that they faked the screen, right and Roethlisberger came back. To set the screen left and Mike Purcell had it was head down to the locker room. Talk with head coach Vic Fangio. Vic. It's date night, a tough, tough game. Obviously, let me ask you to start with anything question on everybody's mind back here in Denver. We know the extent of the injury to drew lock. No. Yet we're going to do more tests as when we get back. Don't really know the severity of again. Okay? I mean, I thought that Jeff Driskel under difficult situations came in. He did have the interception. But that ball went right through Portland's hands. But I thought Driscoll at least.

"All right. Jordan Reed at J. Reed NFL with the draft network. Loved his breakdown. I like getting a little bit of the breakdown sometimes of a roster from kind of a bird's eye view. You get out of our little bubble, where here every single day watching the roster, and we have obviously intimate knowledge of what's going on here. The practice field right, But there's a perception about the team that tends to be pretty accurate most of the time once in a while, if you don't know a little bit more of the nuance that's happening out here. You can. You can missing things, But Jordan is a sharp is it gets every time we run into him there at the combine. We tend to get him on for A few minutes, So I like the way he kind of broke this down. As usual. It does kind of come back to how drew like plays this year. Why does it all hinges on how drew lock drives the Ferrari? You know they'd built the car around them. They put the engine in there. They put the flashy tires. They got the got the nice paint job. Now let's get out there and let's see how this thing. Yeah, let's see how good this driver is. You know, let's see how good this kid could They kid can drive the thing and so that's really where we're at with. This's his can drew lot pilot this craft. Into the playoffs. Can he pilot them into a win over the Kansas City Chiefs? Because let's be honest, if there are two things that this team has got to do this season. Those of them those of the goals. That's where you need to be. You have two goals. One beat Kansas City to make the playoffs, not necessarily in that order. It's refreshing by the way this year that we're not having to spend a lot of time on quarterback competitions or how the backup is looking. We talked about how Jeff Driskel looking, but ultimately, you know, he's the backup. He's not pushing on Drew lock and it's pretty evident when you're watching practice. Drew.

"Course, have one two in a row after that win over the Steelers on Sunday head coach Vance Joseph will take that. But won't let his team rest on its laurels unacceptable to give up that many big plays each week on ninety seven yard touchdown single high coverage. We can't do that. You know? So I'm very pleased. We win the football game but disappointed in. Lapsus that we have each each week. And it's gotta stop Broncos and Bengals covered. John KOA starts Sunday morning at seven kickoff at eleven.
