Ever since Vance Joseph’s excuse-riddled, coach speak news conference on Monday, one image won’t leave my mind.

That was when Joseph gave us the line that could define his tenure. “It’s not a Trevor Siemian problem” when it comes to the Denver Broncos offense and how atrocious it’s been since Week Three against the Buffalo Bills. The second Joseph said it, I first thought of John Fox and his “best chance to win” line about Kyle Orton and cringed. But I then pivoted to this historical scene from a classic comedy, and it’s made me laugh ever since.

As I told Adam Malnati on the latest MHR Radio Podcast, Joseph has morphed into the Black Knight from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” Joseph has had both arms and legs cutoff and he’s trying to convince us all that “it’s just a flesh wound.” We know Siemian is why Denver can’t and won’t do anything offensively, and that won’t change on Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs, but Joseph is out here trying to convince us all “it’s just a flesh wound.”
