Both are/were Broncos, any similarities?
Sorry, haven't seen him lately.
But, his team has absolutely gone in the *******. The Broncos have battled injuries all year and frankly they have put too much of their stock into the hands of Scarlett.
The kid, at 17, has been forced to play 30 minutes or more on some nights because their blueline was so young.
I saw them one game this year where they had 5 defenders and 3-4 of them were 17 year olds.
Pretty hard to find success with those kind of odds stacked against you.
