What Spencer Larsen Means To The Broncos


Injuries and adversity are not only staples of human existence in general, but more particularly in the game we all love: football. While some teams the Broncos have faced have suffered significant serious injuries (such as Felix Jones and Miles Austin in the Dallas game), Denver has suffered them as well, but still played at a really high level.

 

Now, the Broncos receive a significant shot in the arm in a versatile jack of all trades in his second year out of Arizona, Spencer Larsen, returning from his surprise injury before the season opener against the Bengals.

 

Thus far, Larsen's versatility speaks for itself as he became only the fourth NFL player since 1990 to start on both offense and defense in the same game, a 24-20 win over the Falcons last season. While his stats may not be eye-popping ( a respectable 22 tackles thus far), his numerous talents will serve the Broncos well.

 

Obviously, Josh McDaniels has seen what players with varied and arrayed skill sets can do as Mike Vrabel flourished in McDaniels' offense at New England for years. However, Larsen, in my opinion, is a better athlete than Vrabel and can enable us to create more wrinkles against a veteran Ravens defense.

 

I do believe the Broncos will win this game, in a close call, and I think Larsen will go a long way toward helping us improve to 7-0.  Of course, we know Kyle Orton will bring it as will our stellar defense. Expect Brian Dawkins, Elvis Dumervil and Darrell Reid to each do their thing, but watch Larsen make some big plays just as he did last season.

 

Again, thanks for reading and GO BRONCOS!!!
