Hour one Pritchard & Cecil talk about some veteran quarterbacks in the NFL. What’s with some of these veteran quarterbacks being petty? Ben Roethlisberger crying over Mason Rudolph? Joe Flacco not returning Lamar Jackson’s phone calls? Are these veterans actually doing the right thing and focusing on themselves? It’s not their job to develop the young quarterback behind them but they’re also still starting for their respective teams.

The guys also discuss how the Broncos quarterback discussion was settled this off-season with the addition of quarterback Case Keenum.
Plus, Broncos rookie mini camp gets fired up today. Who should we expect to show up big? Is it too easy to just say Bradley Chubb? What about Royce Freeman and Daesean Hamilton?

Cecil thinks Chad Kelly will crush Paxton Lynch in the competition for the backup quarterback.
