Siemian works out sprained shoulder
Denver Broncos (4-0, 1st AFC West) Head Coach Gary Kubiak has not yet decided who will start at QB this Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons (3-1, 1st NFC South) after his starting QB Trevor Siemian went down against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last weekend. Siemian, who was injured after taking a sack from the Buc’s Clinton McDonald, resumed practice this Thursday.
“I trust Trevor. He knows exactly what we’re doing and he’s very bright. He’s on top of everything,” Kubiak said Wednesday. “He’s a part of the walk-throughs and everything that we’re doing so he’s on top of everything. We’ll just see where he’s at physically.
The Broncos welcome the 3-1 Falcons who are coming off a 48-33 shootout victory over the Carolina Panthers. Gary Kubiak for one is impressed with the Falcons offense led by his former student Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan.
“Kyle is as sharp of a guy as I have ever worked with. He’s exceptional at attacking defenses and knowing what he wants to get done. We all know how he grew up and being around ball all the time,” Kubiak said.

Denver enters as a three point underdog
OLB Von Miller may have to lay some money down in Vegas after they have his Denver Broncos as three point home underdogs. Miller has pledged to make Cam Newton’s game miserable as he intends to get back to what he does best…sack quarterbacks. The coaching staff have noticed Miller’s more vocal attitude after signing a hefty $114.5 million contract.
“He seems to be more comfortable at everything, more focused,” Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips said. “He wanted to prove to everybody that maybe he’s the best player, maybe he’s the defensive player of the year. He was the MVP in the Super Bowl, but I think his next goal is to be the defensive player of the year.”
Cam has taken notice of the not so subtle Miller and had nothing but praise for the reigning Super Bowl MVP.
“He’s a great and exceptional talent, one of top players in this NFL by far, and we’ve got to account for him,” said Newton, who went 18-of-41 for 265 yards and an interception in the Super Bowl. “But not focusing everything on 58, because they have a very talented defensive line as a whole. And we’ve got to control DeMarcus Ware. We can’t let those guys dictate to us.”
As the week continues on, excitement is building for the team and fans alike. Thursday cannot come quickly enough.
“It doesn’t matter to us. You could have a Dorito on your shoulder for all we care,” Broncos safety T.J. Ward said. “But you still have to come in here and beat us.”

It was all so surreal for former NFL TE Nick Kasa as he sat in the stands watching the AFC Championship game when he got the phone call that would bring him back into not only the NFL but straight to the Super Bowl.
“It’s been pretty crazy. Kind of indescribable,” said Kasa, who was signed Monday and would have to be activated from the practice squad in order to play in the game. “These guys have been working hard toward this for a long time. For me to come in at the end here, is just kind of an out-of-the-ordinary event. I’m honored to be here and ready to do whatever I can to help.”
The Broncos are still listed as underdogs against the Carolina Panthers but some on the Broncos squad are embracing it wholeheartedly.
“Go ahead. We feed off of that,” Ward said. “Keep us as the underdog [against] whoever wins [the NFC Championship]. Tell us how bad we are and how we can’t cover and stop ‘this person,’ and I bet we win the Super Bowl.”
