against the Raiders? Here are 3 of the more memorable conversations I’ve had during or after the game:Losing isn’t that bad since draft positionThis was a debate a bunch of the Mile High Report crew got into during halftime after Brandon McManus missed another long field goal. The game was 17-0 Raiders but didn’t look that close Bradley Chubb Jersey , if I’m being honest.There was three arguments being made. 1. It’s the Raiders, screw draft position its a lottery ticket at best regardless. 2. Just lose, baby.3. I’m just here so I won’t get fined. How it goes, it goes.These debates turned into a QB discussion, which got me thinking that its probably time I finally start digging into the 2019 QB crop to see what’s really out there. Normally I put off college scouting until after the season’s over, but its been over for a couple weeks now in all reality. Would this team be better if they had kept Trevor Siemian? I started this, but I swear I wasn’t trolling. Right after Keenum threw his first pick I thought about that huge cap number and wondered if $20 million would have been better spent on keeping Aqib Talib or signing a safety to play over Darian Stewart (like Eric Reid who’s playing for less than $1.5 million). Easy to say what if now and Keenum has been markedly better than Siemian, but 20 times better is a bit of a stretch at best.You don’t need to pay franchise money to see a guy throw into triple coverage. Luckily the Keenum deal only runs for one more season and it’s beyond likely that the veteran will serve as little more than a bridge to a rookie next year. There’s been talk of Flacco out there but I can’t see Elway eating $10 million to give another $15 M+ to a QB who’s average at best. Still, 15 touchdowns to 12 interceptions and two 30-year old Hall of Fame talents may push the Duke to make a big move for a signal caller. Woof. Will Elway can Joseph on Christmas? I put the odds at 10%, but that could be optimistic considering the short week. So I figured I’d ask Broncos Country: how long does he have after Denver gets curb stomped by the Chargers next week?Your Broncos LinksIf you want a good laugh today, check out this thread:Denver Broncos secure first back-to-back losing season since 1971 - Mile High ReportDenver Broncos: 5 things learned in 27-14 loss to the Oakland Raiders - Mile High ReportBroncos: Futures of Vance Joseph, Case Keenum in peril after Raiders loss | SI.comDwayne Harris scores on amazing 99-yard punt return - NFL.comDenver Broncos 2 winners, 7 losers in historic loss to Oakland Raiders - Mile High ReportArguably the biggest loser of the game?

They scored only 10 points, with the touchdown coming on a trick play on the final play of the first half.Offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva caught a 2-yard pass from kicker Chris Boswell as time expired in the first half to tie the Broncos 10-10.Villanueva became the first Steelers offensive lineman to catch a touchdown pass since Ray Pinney in 1983, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Still, Pittsburgh should have the lead. The Steelers have run 41 plays for 251 yards.Pittsburgh reached the Denver 30 on their first drive, going 52 yards before stalling.But Justin Simmons does what Justin Simmons does: He blocked a Boswell 48-yard field goal attempt in the first quarter. Simmons leaped over long snapper Kameron Canaday to prevent the field goal. Simmons did the same thing against Justin Tucker and the Ravens earlier this season.The Steelers drove 74 yards on their second possession and ended up 1 yard short as Xavier Grimble fumbled out of the end zone on a hit by Will Parks. The touchback gave Denver possession.Pittsburgh went 56 yards to the Denver 23 on its next drive before settling for a 41-yard Boswell field goal.On their final drive of the first half, the Steelers rolled down the field before Vance McDonald dropped a touchdown pass to set up a fourth-and-goal from the 2. Instead, of settling for another field goal, though, the Steelers called for the trick play.The Broncos scored their touchdown on a 10-yard pass from Case Keenum to Matt LaCosse.Ben Roethlisberger is 25-of-31 for 221 yards, the most completions by a Pittsburgh quarterback in a regular-season game since at least 1960.
