The Brandon Spano Network Latest Headlines
Our QBotF deserves his own thread. Has anyone gotten his jersey yet?
Will we learn anything about the Broncos tomorrow? Perhaps key positional battles will solved?
When is the last time the Broncos played the LA Rams?

Over this past weekend, news emerged that the NFL put the kibosh on Mike Tirico’s calling Thursday night games for NBC. This was the primary job, for now, that the network lured him away from ESPN on a big money deal to do. The story was stupefying at the break, but even more so when the league released this statement on the record.

ENGLEWOOD—One problem with having a preseason-long quarterback competition is the Denver Broncos may not want any of their three candidates to play in the meaningless fourth preseason game next week.
If Trevor Siemian is declared the Broncos’ starter, he won’t play next Thursday against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Ariz.
If Paxton Lynch is the No. 2 quarterback nipping at Siemian’s heels do you want your franchise quarterback playing a full game behind second-, third- and fourth-string offensive linemen?
That leaves eight-year veteran Mark Sanchez. Wouldn’t it be cruel to ask Sanchez to play in such a meaningless game?
Another problem with the chronology of the NFL calendar for preseason game No. 4 is the Broncos have to cut 15 players by Tuesday to get their roster down from 90 to 75. But because the top 25 Broncos players won’t play after preseason game No. 3 this Saturday against the Los Angeles Rams (6 p.m. pregame show; 7 p.m. kickoff, Channel 20) that fourth preseason game two days later is when you really could use those 15 players who have been cut.

The last time the Broncos returned a kickoff for a touchdown feels like ancient history. Trindon Holliday, a 5-foot-5 mighty mite, ran 105 yards through a crowd of head-hunting Philadelphia Eagles defenders from deep in his end zone to the other coast in 2013. There were, amazingly, two kickoff returns longer than Holliday’s that season, a 109-yarder and another for 108.
Fans may never see it again.
If the NFL has its way, the return will go the way of leather helmets and a coach’s fedora, a relic of a long-ago game. Safety is the goal. Kickoffs are among the most dangerous plays in football, with two groups of 11 large men running full speed at each other, many of them young players trying to make a big hit to make a big impression on their coaches. So the NFL, for the second time in five years, tweaked its return rules.
But instead of eliminating the kickoff altogether, the NFL is trying to nudge teams into doing it themselves. And the idea is backfiring.
The NFL’s new kickoff rule — which moved touchbacks from the 20-yard line to the 25-yard line — is having the opposite effect of the league’s intended impact. Instead of kick returners staying in the end zone for a touchback, knowing the difficulty of getting a 25-yard return, early preseason games show kicking teams are not giving the kickers a choice. Kickers are using a higher, shorter “mortar kick” that lands inside the 10-yard line and forces a return.

It’s a new level of theft, and the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office is looking for the person who stole a Denver Broncos team helmet without fear of being busted.
“The theft is so brazen,” said Julie Brooks, spokeswoman for the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office. “It was in front of hundreds of people, right next to the (Broncos) player who put the helmet down. People were interacting and he took advantage of the distraction. It wasn’t on a table out of the way, with no one looking.”
The theft happened about 3:15 p.m. July 31 during an autograph-signing session after Broncos practice.
The helmet — a Riddell Revolution Speed Classic clearly marked with the Denver Broncos logo and valued at more than $400 — was sitting on the ground next to the player, who hasn’t been identified.
The man who took the helmet wasn’t trying to blend into the crowd — according to photos obtained by investigators, he carried a bright orange hat, and then passed the helmet to a second man wearing an “18” jersey. They left together and appeared to be a family.
Anyone with information about the crime or the identification of these men is asked to contact the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 720-874-8477 or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).

Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians and Denver Broncos executive vice president of football operations/general manager John Elway are being added to NFL's competition committee, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The competition committee, whose members are selected by commissioner Roger Goodell, currently has nine members and is led by chairman Rich McKay, who is the president of the Atlanta Falcons.
The other members are New York Giants owner John Mara, Dallas Cowboys owner Stephen Jones, Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy, Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome, Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith, Los Angeles Rams coach Jeff Fisher, Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis and Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin.
Fisher announced in February that he was stepping down from the committee. It is not known which other member of the committee is resigning his post.
The competition committee annually reviews rules proposals and makes recommendations on changes. Owners then vote on the recommended rules changes at the annual league meetings, with 75 percent support (24 of 32 owners) needed before rules are adopted or revised.

I know everyone won't agree. That's why we play the game.
I'm at 51 with two to spare - I'm thinking they'd be O and D line depth or a TE, but who knows.
So play the game and guess along with me.

Peyton and Eli Manning: They’re just like any normal set of brothers!
NFL Films shared a clip from an upcoming episode of The Timeline which looks back at how the elder Manning brother prepared for his incredible 2013 season.
You’ll see Eli snacking on some chips during what appears to be film study, when Peyton grabs the bag away and complains about the loud chomping: “You’re killing me with that crunching!”
This is awesome for two reasons: The first is that Eli is arguably the NFL’s all-time greatest prankster, so it’s possible he got Peyton on this one. Secondly, it’s real-life proof that this classic “This is SportsCenter” commercial might be closer to reality:

I'm throwing it out there right now. This starting Oline is going to beast this season. The Broncos will be top 5 in the run game. Elway has done a great job of upgrading this unit.
LT- Russell Okung- When he's healthy he a top 5 LT in this league. He looks like he's already in pro bowl form.
LG- Max Garcia- The youngster continues to improve in pass pro. He was always a beast in the run game. There's a reason the 2015 Olineman nicknamed him "The Future".
C- Matt Paradis- Solid all the way around. Third year is usually when lineman make their biggest leap. I expect no less from him.
RG- Ty Sambrailo/Darion Weems- Weems has been one of the surprises of camp. If Ty doesn't come back strong he may lose his starting job. Either way, it provides good depth at guard.
RT- Donald Stephenson- Another under the radar signing by Elway. I think this guy is the Darian Stewart of 2016. Unheralded, solid veteran.
All in all, when you throw in a real fullback and a commitment to the run I expect to see this unit improve leaps and bounds over last season. The media, local pundits, and forum contributors have all proclaimed this unit to be a weak link on this team. I beg to differ. My gut told me last season that the defense would be special.
It was almost a year ago today when I started this thread in the preseason:
This year my gut tells me that barring injuries, the offensive line will be really good. Feel free to bump this thread and laugh me off of the forum if I'm wrong.

There's no way Elway keeps Mark Sanchez on the roster for 5 million to be this team's 3rd string QB. Kubes hasn't said who will play 2nd on Saturday night, but my money is on Paxton. Siemian is getting every chance to be the starting QB week one. All he has to do this week is take care of the ball and move the offense. He will be playing with the first team the entire time he's in.
I wouldn't be surprised if Sanchez gets cut before opening day. I think there's a 50/50 chance that he gets cut after this 3rd preseason game. The only way I see him sticking around is if Siemian flat out chokes this Saturday, or either him or Paxton get hurt. It was a nice thought to bring him in as a stopgap while Paxton develops. Unfortunately, he came in and showed us that he's the same Mark Sanchez that he's always been......a ball security nightmare. That's the one thing that Kubes won't tolerate.
See ya Sanchez!

The NFL confirmed Sunday a streamlined policy for reporting an injured player's game status during the regular season, a move that addresses the rise of gamesmanship among teams that want to limit that information for competitive purposes.
Under the revised policy, approved recently by the NFL competition committee, the "probable" category has been eliminated and the remaining classifications have been redefined.
Two days before kickoff, teams must list injured players as "questionable," "doubtful" or "out" for that game.
