Emmanuel Sanders Addresses the QB Position for the Broncos
The Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders went on to Twitter this afternoon to address the quarterback situation. Let’s just say that he ruled the afternoon.
The Denver Broncos are in an interesting situation for a team that just won the Super Bowl. The top two quarterback’s on their roster are no longer on the team. Peyton Manning retired on Monday, and Brock Osweiler skipped town to move to Houston just 48 hours later.
This makes Trevor Siemian the only quarterback from the championship team still on the active roster. There have been talks on who will become the starting quarterback for the defending champs in 2016. I even shared my thoughts on social media on who it should be. Realistic and Fiction.
But the story of the day comes from a player who catches passes from the quarterback. Broncos wide out Emmanuel Sanders took to Twitter today on his takes. He has had some interesting thoughts on the situation.
One such that I can remember is his response to a fan who asked how he would feel about Colin Kaepernick as the next signal caller.
But today, he went to Twitter and gave us an idea on whom he would like to see under center.
For those who do not know who Uncle Rico is, (shame on you) he is the famous uncle from the movie Napoleon Dynamite. He was instructed to watch Napoleon and his brother Kip when their grandmother was involved in a dune buggy accident.
Uncle Rico has stated that he could throw over the mountains, which is perfect since the Broncos are based in the Rocky Mountain Area. He also states he could throw a pigskin a quarter mile. Not too shabby Mr. Rico.
Next: Broncos in no rush to decide on QB
Perhaps Sanders has a point, maybe John Elway should get on the phone and give Uncle Rico a call. It wouldn’t be the worst case scenario.
Although it will never happen, give props to Sanders for at least giving Broncos fans a bit of a laugh today. With all the pressure of what is going on in free agency, someone had to do it. And I’m glad it was Sanders.
