On Sunday, the Denver Broncos won their fourth game of the season, defeating the Los Angeles Chargers 23-20 on a last-second field goal by Brandon McManus. It was a glorious win for both the Broncos, who have lost three such games the exact way and also for rookie Drew Lock. It wasn’t pretty, but Lock brought everything we saw from him out of Mizzou onto Empower Field at Mile High for his first career start. Moxie, confidence, and some flash with his play.

The Denver Broncos have named second-round pick Drew Lock as the team’s starting quarterback this week against the Los Angeles Chargers, per ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Schefter. The Drew Lock era is finally upon us, and given how the season has gone, it’s not surprising. I know that Broncos fans are stoked for the rookie’s first career start, but let’s be reasonable with expectations with him.
Thanksgiving is finally upon us, and there’s a lot to be thankful for. We’re thankful for our families, lives, and any other number of things. I personally have a lot to be thankful for. One of those things being the NBA. It’s been a brutal few months as a Denver sports fan. Watching the Colorado Rockies take a massive step back from last season – failing to make the playoffs – and the Denver Broncos facing a 3-8 record. Having the NBA and the Denver Nuggets back has been a nice change of pace from all the losing that’s been happening in the last few months. It also got me thinking, which active NBA players I would want at my Thanksgiving dinner.
Being a fan of the Denver Broncos is challenging right now. Top to bottom, the whole team is a complete mess. The ownership is four people running a one-man position and running with the wrong mentality. The Bowlen family is in shambles and is consistently trying to sabotage one another. The coaching staff is showing their inexperience. The team, as a whole, lacks talent and direction. The worst part, no matter what the organization does, the fans aren’t going to like it and call for everyone’s head no matter what.
The Colorado Avalanche are set to open the season this Thursday, October 3rd. The Denver Nuggets open the regular season on October 23rd. While the Nuggets open the season on ESPN, the Avalanche do not. As things currently stand, The Avalanche game will not be viewed by the local public unless you are in the Pepsi Center. The beginning of September marked the end of an agreement between the Nuggets and Avalanche local broadcast network ‘Altitude TV’ and the so-called “Big 3” of DIRECTV, DISH Network, and Comcast.
Last year the Denver Nuggets were one of the deepest teams in the league. Managing to have the most games lost due to injury of any team in the league and still finishing with the second-best record in the Western Conference is a true testament to that. When they got eliminated from the playoffs, most fans felt like the team was legitimately one or two guys away from being a championship contender. One hole that hasn’t been filled since Carmelo Anthony, and needs to be filled is the starting small forward spot. Thanks to their depth, the Nuggets have seven different options for who can fill the starting and backup small forward role. So let’s go through the potential options.
The Denver Broncos just completed their second preseason game out of five facing the Seattle Seahawks. As you should expect, there were goods and bads. We finally got to see most of the presumed starting group hit the field for the first time this season for one drive then let the backups hash it out and continue to make their arguments for why they should be on this roster or another team’s roster. Now, before I get into how the game went down, please, please don’t overreact.on what you either saw or read. It’s only the preseason and still early in the preseason. Guys are gonna struggle and make mistakes, that’s the point of the preseason. Now, given that, let’s get into what happened in this game.
