Broncos fans now have yet another reason to dislike Tom Brady

Denver Broncos fans loved to hate Tom Brady during the former quarterback’s career. Now they have yet another reason to dislike the QB.

Brady is joining the Las Vegas Raiders as a minority owner, the team announced Monday. Brady is now set to serve as a co-owner of the Broncos’ biggest rival beginning with the 2023 season.

Brady went 9-9 against the Broncos during his decorated career, including an 8-6 mark in the regular season and a 1-3 record in the playoffs (his line postseason victory against Denver came when Tim Tebow was quarterback).

Brady also had a rivalry with former quarterback Peyton Manning that started when Manning was with the Indianapolis Colts and continued after No. 18 joined the Broncos.

Brady led the head-to-head series against Manning 11-6 in his career, but Manning had an edge in the playoffs, owning a 3-2 postseason record against Brady (including two playoff wins with Denver).

Brady now joins the AFC West as a minority owner, adding even more fuel to the rivalry between the Broncos and Raiders.

Lance unbothered by notion Purdy is ‘leader in the clubhouse’ originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Trey Lance, in speaking to the media for the first time this offseason after the 49ers’ first open practice of OTAs on Tuesday, came across as even-keeled and ready for a competition.

The first question to Lance was about comments made by 49ers general manager John Lynch in March where he praised Purdy, claiming he “earned the right” to remain the starting quarterback next season and was the 49ers’ “leader in the clubhouse.” Lance reiterated his desire just for an opportunity to compete while praising his quarterback counterpart.

“Nothing’s changed for me,” Lance said. “I’ve been able to focus on a lot more things that are going to help me I’d say this offseason versus just focusing on trying to get back to as healthy as I could last offseason. As far as the stuff with Brock, that’s same thing I told you guys last year at the end of the year, my opportunity is just to come in and compete and that’s all I wanted. I don’t want to take anything away from Brock and no one should be able to take anything away from Brock. He did what he did last year and he deserves all the credit in the world for it. I just want an opportunity to compete.”

The No. 3 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft has had a rollercoaster of a career thus far and once again is fighting for a stop atop San Francisco’s depth chart at the quarterback position after suffering a season-ending ankle injury in Week 2 last season.

Lance was replaced by veteran backup Jimmy Garoppolo who eventually was replaced by Purdy, a rookie seventh-round pick, who took the NFL by storm. After leading the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game, Purdy appears to be in a position to claim the starting nod once he recovers from offseason surgery to repair a torn UCL.

Purdy, who is expected to begin throwing as soon as next week, continues to rehab at the 49ers’ facility and also was asked about Lynch’s comments. The young quarterback remains focused on his rehab and not where he falls in the 49ers’ quarterback hierarchy.
