Well, that what their quarterbacks are doing. Talk about a team that has whiffed marvelously on their latest attempts to get a bona fide QB in their stable. I me3an, even Peyton manning was a bit of a trainwreck as all he did was try not to fuck up too bad as the defense rocked and rolled teams to their championship. Paxton Lynch is out of the league after 3 misbegotten seasons, Brock Osweiler? Trevor Siemien? Riley Dixon?
Case Keenum? Undrafted not-so-phenom from the 2012 draft? Well, at 53-50, you get the picture. 6-6 this year says much the same. Fair to middling. Even in Denver’s unlikely 3 game winning streak, his numbers are pedestrian. But they did beat the Chargers and Steelers. Not too shabby.
What does that mean for us? Well, they still have Von Miller, so, seeing that this is likely BDN’s last stand before the switch back to the Beater, Mullens looks to be running for his life. Although there is the fact that Mullens threw for over 400 yards in the Seattle debacle. A loss that was due mostly to dogshit special teams play. But the 400 yard performance was something not accomplished by a 49er quarterback since the heady days of 2012. That was the opening day shellacking of the Packers by one Colin Kaepernick. The one guy that probably could have been the Broncos quarterback savior after the retirement of Peyton. I’m sure Elway is still kicking himself for that decision.
