MHR Live: Broncos vs 49ers preseason

More injuries, more injuries, but we have a timetable on when everyone will return.

More injuries today as Jared Crick hits the trainer's room with what is likely back spasms. We will have an injury report, as well as a timetable for the return on all 11 injured players on the Denver Broncos. Allen Barbre moved up to play with the 1st team offensive line today and we have much, much more. Get in where you fit in, join host Ian Henson and we'll take care of all of your Monday questions.

If you would like to join The Strongside Blitz newsletter that I keep mentioning, you can do that here.

Here is an excerpt from today’s:

Tell me more about Broncos third-string quarterback Kyle Sloter.

Well, here you go, Sloter's stat line from the first week of preseason: 5 of 6 for 94 yards and 1 touchdown.

Remember, one of his completions was 47-yards.

Other third-string quarterbacks and their stat lines from last week:

  • C.J. Beathard 7/11 for 101 yards and 2 touchdowns.
  • David Fales 8/17 184 yards 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.
  • Jake Rudock 13/21 142 yards and 2 touchdowns.
  • Cooper Rush 18/29 191 yards and 2 touchdowns.
  • Joe Webb 7/14 128 yards 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.

I can keep going, but you get the point. That's what third-string quarterbacks do... They're good in the preseason, because they're predominantly facing teams and teams of players that will likely not play football this season and possibly not ever again. Men who are the 150th or 200th best in the NFL in their position. While the third-string quarterback, well, there are 32 quarterback in the NFL, at least three of them if not four on each team's roster at this point.

So, is it really Sloter you want taking reps on the first-team to see how he does?

Or is it the fact that Sloter is not Trevor Siemian nor Paxton Lynch?

Don't worry, Vance Joseph is here to humble you, "I respect you guys, but your opinion on the quarterbacks kinda doesn't matter." He added later, "At all."

He may be talking to the media there, but really he's talking to anyone that's stated an opinion on Denver's quarterbacks.
