At a time when more than a few people are more than willing to openly politick for a spot in the booth Trevon Wesco Jersey , one recently-retired player has made it clear that he’s not interested. isn’t interested in any work as a game analyst.“I’m not sure I really want to step into the booth,” Thomas told Jason Wilde of the , “especially after watching what Jason Witten had to endure this season.”Thomas auditioned both for and last year. Although he was offered neither job, he drew positive reviews in the interview process.“Maybe down the line I think I would like to call a game, but right now, I recognize where my talents are and how much work and growth I would have to have in order to be able to step into that booth,” Thomas said.He realizes that accepting a job like Monday Night Football carries with it a significant time commitment, along with the burden that comes from the criticism invited by a high-profile position.“When you do that Monday night gig, you get into town on Friday, you’re there until Tuesday, you’re home for basically Wednesday and Thursday, but those days you’re starting to prep and you’re watching film for the next week, so really, I can imagine he got burned out really quickly — especially when you’re so widely panned and criticized the way he was,” Thomas said.“I think it would have been different for him with that time commitment had he stepped into that booth and been received the way Tony Romo has, where everyone loves him. He could easily have felt and justified that the work was worth it. But in his case, getting that criticism every single week Shareef Miller Jersey , I’m sure he was thinking, ‘Man, it was a lot easier playing football for the Dallas Cowboys. I can go out and be the hero every Sunday, and it was a lot easier.'”Thomas has a point. While the move straight to a big broadcasting gig worked for Romo, for someone like Witten it would have made more sense to make a more gradual transition to broadcasting, as Thomas is doing. The more he does in capacities other than calling games, the more natural — and less jarring — it will be for the audience when he transition to the broadcast booth.Thomas seems to have the ability to pull it off. He’s smart, he’s funny, and he’s very knowledgeable about the intricacies of the game. Sooner or later, we’ll be hearing him on Sundays to Thursdays to maybe even Mondays. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Case Keenum agrees he’s gone from being too careless with the football to being too cautious.Denver’s quarterback said Tuesday he concurs with head coach Vance Joseph that he needs to take more downfield chances if the Broncos (6-7) are to have any chance of reaching the playoffs.“Yeah, I mean we’re at the point of the season where we’ve got to make plays. We’ve got to score points,” Keenum said. “… I can’t get caught back there with the ball in my hands. And I’ve got to give guys chances down the field.”Keenum hasn’t thrown an interception in his last five starts after throwing 10 in his first eight games in Denver, but his passing numbers are pedestrian lately. He’s averaged just 178 yards passing in his last three games and he’s already been sacked a career-high 30 times.So, Keenum said he’ll balance ball security with the risk-reward of taking his chances down the seams beginning Saturday night against the Cleveland Browns (5-7-1).“In general, that’s a good mindset to have,” Keenum said. “And I think … continuing to be smart with the ball but giving guys chances when we feel like it’s a good matchup or good, advantageous time to take a shot or take a chance down the field.”Keenum was scolded early on for throwing too many interceptions Zach Brown Jersey , including three against Seattle in the opener. After going all of November and half of December without getting picked off, he’s now drawing criticism for being too conservative.It comes with the territory, Keenum said.“I mean, quarterback is a tough position to play, and that’s why I play it. I love the challenge of it,” Keenum said. “I love how much goes into it. And how my entire life I have absolutely loved having the ball in my hands, making decisions and really being a big part of why my team wins.“And that’s what I want to be. I want to win. I’m a winner. I’m competitive to a fault and I think that’s what partly drives me and makes me who I am. So, yeah, I take it on myself that I’ve got to do better. I’ve got to play better. I’ve got to give my guys chances down the field and that’s it.”Making his task harder is an injury epidemic that has nearly dismantled Denver’s offense.Keenum is playing behind a line that consists of converted guard Connor McGovern at center and four tackles, including Billy Turner at left guard and Elijah Wilkinson at right guard, following season-ending injuries to Matt Paradis, Ronald Leary and Max Garcia.Tight ends Troy Fumagalli, Jake Butt and Jeff Heuerman all are on IR and Keenum lost his two favorite receivers, Demaryius Thomas to a trade and Emmanuel Sanders to a ruptured Achilles.Now, his No. 1 receiver is rookie Courtland Sutton, but he missed Tuesday’s walkthrough practice with a thigh injury, making fellow rookie DaeSean Hamilton his flanker du jour.So, even if Keenum heeds his coach’s admonition to start taking more chances downfield Devin Bush Jersey , there’s no guarantee his raw receivers or young tight ends will make the emphasis a success.“I’ve said that early on, that it takes time to work with guys, but you know this is the NFL,” Keenum said. “It’s the nature of the business and how it goes and heck, I’ve had a lot of work with Courtland, with DaeSean and Timmy (Patrick). Those guys, we’ve been here since the spring and worked during the summer. So, we put a lot of investment into the bank and we want to keep making withdrawals.”Keenum said the other thing he needs to do is somehow break the Broncos’ habit of slow starts.They’ve only scored six first-quarter points in their last five games and have started with a three-and-out four times.“We need to make sure we get things going early, whether it’s with Phillip (Lindsay), Royce (Freeman), whether it’s throwing the ball down the field,” Keenum said. “A lot of different things. We need to get first downs. We need to score early and take some pressure off our defense and get other teams out of their game plans.“So, there’s a lot of things that we can fix.”ROBOT BARTENDER : The Broncos have unveiled the “Bud Light Bot ” that will be in use Saturday on the club level at Mile High stadium. Manufactured by Universal Robots and programmed by MSI TEC, the robot serves beer from a bottoms-up machine that uses a special cup and magnet to pour the beer.
