by everything but the mathematics. After Sunday’s 23-20 loss to the Los Angeles Rams Youth Jared Veldheer Jersey , Denver has fallen to 2-4. Worse yet, the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets, Houston Texans and Chargers all won. Meanwhile in South Beach the Miami Dolphins are enjoying the beginnings of Brocktoberfest after Osweiler led the team to an upset win over the Bears. If the NFL season ended today the Broncos would finish 14th out of 16 teams in the AFC playoff seeding. Only the hapless Raiders and Buffalo Bills have been worse through 6 games. According to Football Outsiders Playoff Odds Report the Broncos now have an 8.7 chance at the playoffs. The Rams routinely gouged the Broncos second and third level defenders, just like the Jets.The Broncos have a better odds for a top five pick and a 1.2% chance that they can achieve the top selection in the 2019 draft. John Elway and Matt Russell attended the recent Oregon Washington game. The Broncos are serious about pursuing a franchise altering signal caller. One Big ProblemFortunately for Elway, most of the team’s ahead of Denver (or behind, if that’s how you want to look at it) look set under center for the foreseeable future. Sure, Gruden could do something funky with Derek Carr, but even if Denver finishes in the 6-10 range of the draft they may get lucky and see Justin Herbert fall. Unless the Giants finish with a worse record than them. Before the Thursday Night demolition by the Philadelphia Eagles, a vocal presence has been questioning running back Saquon Barkley at 2. Eli Manning is no spring chicken at 37 and now that New York is 1-5 the calls for fresh blood at the position have hit the mainstream. Giants should trade Eli Manning to Jaguars: Matt HasselbeckWhile it’s possible the Giants could troll their fans by taking someone like Jonah Williams in order to fortify their woeful offensive line, passing on franchise signal callers in back to back drafts would be pretty damning for Dave Gettleman. No White Von Miller Jersey , Herbert’s going to the G-men unless someone nabs him before them.That leave’s 3 scenarios for the fans as the Bronco’s 2018 plays out.1. Suck for the DuckThis is the long term view. It means embracing youth even at the expense of wins, trading away any and all assets that lack long term value and letting the aging core go. I wondered if this approach was on the horizon before camp, but here we are. Could John Elway blow up the Denver Broncos? - Mile High ReportNow realistically the team and specifically Elway seems reluctant to take this approach. Mile High Stadium already had almost 10,000 no shows for the Rams game. Hard to believe management wants to see more of that, even if it is in their own interests for 2019 and beyond.2. Playoffs or bustWho to fire for this one? This one’s for the diehards, the CAPS LOCK SUPERSTARS who rage every time the Broncos comeback efforts wind up just short, they want to fire Thunder because his attitude ain’t right. These guys and gals are the definition of fandom and question anyone who doesn’t sip the Kool-aid they found under their 1977 Ford Bronco’s seats.3. The “is what it is” fans. These are the realists. While the die hards and Day 3 draft experts are fighting over how much Kool-aid is left in their glass these guys are quenching their thirst. At the end of the day the 2018 Broncos team is a flawed team, but next year is pretty far away. Today is all that’s promised so you may as well enjoy it for what it is.

Isaiah McKenzie fumbled the ball late in the fourth quarter of last night’s week two preseason matchup against the Bears. The fumble was recovered by the Bears and ended any potential comeback by the Broncos. It wasn’t a punt, but McKenzie did once again fumble the ball. He hauled in a screen pass from quarterback Paxton Lynch and while trying to make something out of nothing, had the ball “peanut punched” by a Bears defender. It was some tough luck and something that unfortunately happens, but it happened, and it happened to McKenzie who is trying to shake the ball security woes that plagued him his rookie year. Head Coach Vance Joseph was asked about this after the game and he said he hopes this doesn’t set McKenzie back. McKenzie has been having a strong camp once again by all accounts and just looked like a different player than the one who had his confidence broke last season. If you remember, McKenzie ended up in the doghouse after multiple fumbles and was inactive for a handful of games late in the year. He also had a skirmish with cornerback Chris Harris Jr. during practice which led to the then-rookie to be seen crying at his locker with then running back C.J. Anderson consoling him. It was a rough go for a rookie who had a promising start to the season but the fumbles shook his confidence and it all spiraled out of control from there. This is what Joseph was hoping wouldn’t happen again after his first fumble. It was going to happen at some point. He wasn’t going to go fumble free throughout the rest of his career so he needs to keep pushing as Joseph said after the game. Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY SportsFumbles have always been a part of McKenzie’s game. He had a total of 8 through two seasons at Georgia and that trend continued his rookie year in the NFL. Hopefully, he can buck that trend moving forward. I think McKenzie has done enough to win a roster spot. He has been solid Training Camp/Preseason as a returner and the ball hasn’t hit the ground there. One unfortunate play doesn’t change that, but how McKenzie deals with this will make or break him going forward.Hopefully, the Broncos electric returner does indeed keep pushing and moves forward and serves as a weapon for them in the return game in 2018.
