"It is happening again."
While the surreal, artsy-fartsy Twin Peaks is about the furthest thing imaginable from NFL Preseason Football, The Giant's words ring true for fans of the Denver Broncos after last night's 42-28 beatdown, courtesy of the Minnesota Vikings, a team with plenty of reasons for optimism heading into the 2018 NFL Season.
Having watched the entire game, I am still trying to figure out what was most embarrassing:
- Case Keenum doing absolutely nothing.
- Kirk Cousins breezily marching down the field doing whatever the hell he felt like doing.
- Trevor Siemian's 78 yard TD throw.
- Kyle Sloter's TD throw.
- Kyle Sloter's TD run.
- Paxton Lynch still wearing a Broncos jersey.
Oh, they're all such good choices! How can I just pick one?
I know, I know...it's just preseason football, but as The Gazette's Paul Klee put it:
And he's right, of course. With Vance Joseph at the helm, things will only get worse. Make no mistake, the Broncos looked awful last night. They were outclassed, outcoached and out-physical'd, which were three earmarks of the 2017 Denver Broncos.
God help us all.
