Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak addressed the media on Wednesday and offered an interesting nugget about the team’s right tackle situation…
Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak was asked about the team’s current right tackle situation, which seemed resolved as of Sunday night. In case it wasn’t clear to all of us, the competition between Ty Sambrailo and Donald Stephenson isn’t over…
“We’ll still play them both. I’m going to still play them both. I’ll still play Donald and Ty. I think they need to continue to compete on a daily basis. I think it’s good for our team and I think it’ll be good for the both of them in the long haul. We’ll continue down that same path. Who starts the game, who plays the most? We’ll see.”
Chalk that up as the most shocking news of the day. The week. The season.
The last time we saw Ty Sambrailo, he was looking up from the ground at Justin Houston, who had mauled him over on his way to Trevor Siemian.

Sambrailo was an embarrassment to football on Sunday night, and the Broncos pulled the plug too late by even giving him the opportunity to step onto the field.
Whatever it is he thought he was trying to do, Sambrailo was doing it wrong on Sunday evening, and Donald Stephenson came in for damage control, and did a fine job.
Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison was asked about Sambrailo, and said that “he has spurts of having good things…”
I honestly have yet to see it. I don’t understand some of the decisions Gary Kubiak makes, but I can’t sit here and pretend I get it and he doesn’t. He’s a Super Bowl champion NFL head coach, and I’m just writing about it.
That being said, I know when I see a guy getting thrown to the ground by a pass rushing linebacker — consistently — it’s probably not best to keep trotting him out onto the field when you need to win games.
Just a thought.
