Jerry Jones Had Brutally Honest Answer To The Broncos Having To Use A WR As Their QB
Jerry Jones had very little sympathy for the Denver Broncos after seeing the AFC West franchise play without a quarterback on Sunday.
Denver was without all of its rostered quarterbacks against the New Orleans Saints after one tested positive for COVID-19 and the others failed to wear a mask when coming in close contact with him during a meeting.
The Broncos started practice squad wide receiver Kendall Hinton at quarterback. He completed one pass and threw two interceptions in a 31-3 loss to New Orleans.
Jones was asked about the Broncos’ situation on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday:
“We’ve been schooled, these teams have been schooled that you have really better pay attention to your protocols. You better manage, don’t just give it lip service, roll your eyes back, say, ‘That happened to them. It doesn’t happen to me,’” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, per ESPN’s Todd Archer.
He also appeared to throw a bit of shade at DiNucci as well:
“I don’t know that Denver had any more challenge than we did with (rookie seventh-rounder Ben) DiNucci or young quarterbacks we’ve had,” Jones said.
