Brock Osweiler hopes to remain part of ‘very special’ Broncos

There’s no disputing that Brock Osweiler filled in more than capably for the erratic, ineffective and injured Peyton Manning when thrust into the starting job once the Denver Broncos had no choice but to sit their veteran signal-caller. Given Osweiler’s limited NFL experience — no starts in three previous seasons — how he managed to earn the respect of his teammates and...

Broncos could have tough decision with franchise tag

The Denver Broncos are expected to use the franchise tag on Von Miller, but could that move mean Brock Osweiler will become a free agent this spring?

Eli and Archie Manning say Peyton won’t likely leave Denver if he plays in 2016

There are many reasons for Peyton Manning to retire following the Super Bowl. He is 39 years old, he is coming off his worst season, he has battled injuries and he might not even have a home. Brock Osweiler has waited patiently for four years to become the Broncos’ starting quarterback, and the team might want to move forward with him as their guy. And according to Peyton’s...

Brock Osweiler: Being on bench is ‘difficult’

Even though he is happy his team has reached the Super Bowl, Brock Osweiler acknowledges that it is difficult being on the bench in favor of Peyton Manning. Osweiler took over as the Denver Broncos’ starter in mid-November after Manning got hurt. The team went 5-2 under his watch, which means he had a big role in earning them the top seed in the AFC, and therefore a spot in the...

Brock Osweiler staying focused on Super Bowl, not NFL future

Despite how strangely the season has progressed for the Denver Broncos as it relates to the quarterback position, Brock Osweiler insists he’s remaining focused on backing up Peyton Manning in Super Bowl 50, not his own NFL future.

Manning-Brady feels different this time around

  Just under two months ago, when the C.J. Anderson was busting around the edge to finish off a Patriots-beating drive and comeback, lead by Brock Osweiler, you would have been hard-pressed to find a person who could’ve predicted the top storyline heading into the AFC Championship being the Brady-Manning rivalry. Yet, here we are, just a few days away from Brady-Manning XVII....

Peyton Manning healthier than Brock Osweiler at this stage of season

The irony of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning being more healthy than fellow signal caller Brock Osweiler is that the roles were reversed at mid-season. "I obviously haven't played a ton here in the last few weeks," Manning said, via the Associated Press. "I needed that time in order to get healthy certain parts of my body. At the same time, other parts of your body take...

To pay or not to pay: A tale of three free agent quarterbacks

It is said the starting quarterback is the most important position in sports, and perhaps the greatest challenge a NFL team can face is finding a long-term, viable franchise quarterback. While many teams will look outside their organization (whether in free agency or the draft) to try to find their quarterback, however, for three teams in particular, a decision needs to be made...

Defense helping Brock Osweiler cut down on batted passes

Malik Jackson is having a stellar year on many fronts, but none bigger than his seven batted passes, which leads the NFL among defensive linemen.
