A lot of posts have cast a dark shadow over the season, not without good reason, but I found something that makes me truly excited about watching the game this Sunday. I’m not talking about Denver losing its last two games or the skins offense showing potential in the second half, I’m talking about Marko Mitchell (hopefully) being rewarded for moving the chains twice last week.
The Preseason standout saw action on 12 snaps last week and I’m wishing that with our seasons hopes nearly obliterated we will take this time to let M squared, no not Marcus Mason, get some serious playing time. From everything I’ve read and watched this kid does and says all the right things; His fellow wide receivers admire his work ethic and his ability to attack the ball, the DB’s rave about his physical nature and when asked about his two clutch passes vs the falcons he responded with;
“It felt good to have my first NFL catch and get on the stat sheet or whatever, but I think I would have felt more excited about it if we got the ‘W,’“
Classy response for a young player, I believe he has what it takes to have a very successful career in the NFL and I hope he’s earned himself another half dozen snaps and a few more targets.
He’s a big physical player who has been itching for an opportunity since preseason to come out here and show us that he can bring it and now that he’s had his chance let’s hope he’s hungry for more.
