Bronco fans all over the country are sitting on the edges of their couches worried. They’re worried about who will start the season under center. If you ask me, I wouldn’t waste my time entertaining the “The Worry Warrior”. The team still has its Super Bowl team in tact. So, the QB issue is all in your minds. Let’s take a look at the contest between the Broncos and Rams.

Why you shouldn’t watch this game:
The neighbors are having a pool party and since this will be the last pool party of the summer, you’ll want to see if the sexy girl from the next unit would show up in a bikini.

Why you should watch this game:
Trevor Siemian is beginning to look real good under the center. He shows no emotion. He takes command of the team like a general going into battle.

Offense
Offensive Coordinator Rick Dennison believes that whoever starts at QB will flourish in his offensive scheme.” Trevor (Siemian) is taking the team to another gear”, he said after Thursday’s practice. “Trevor has ice water in his veins!” While everyone is watching the QB competition the running backs are carrying the load. The key has always been the running game no matter who’s under center. The balance comes from passes and carries. Remember when Peyton Manning struggled in his last two seasons in Denver it was the running backs that kept the offense afloat when they were given the chance to run the ball.

Defense
On the defensive side of the ball the core is still intact. Von Miller, DeMarcus Ware and Shaquil Barrett will keep opposing offenses out of the end zone. The defense’s challenge will be filling the gaps from the departure of key back ups. Notice the key words “back ups” from last season’s league leading defense. “We have some young guys that could play anywhere and we have the luxury to groom them in our scheme”, said Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. “I love how we look in all the phases on our side of the ball!”

Snack Scale
This game will be a good game. On a snack scale I would give this game a foot long meatball with extra cheese. Add a large Coke, 2 cookies (oatmeal raisin) and a bag of regular Doritos!
One a scale of 1 to 10 I give it a 6 with the Broncos winning by 7.
