Dalton Risner embodies what it means to be a Pat Bowlen Bronco Good morning, Broncos Country!Confident. Humble. Mature. Well-spoken. Those four adjectives give you an idea of who Dalton Risner is, but they come up short. Way short.The best way to describe one of the newest members of the Denver Broncos: He is a Pat Bowlen Bronco. Through and through. What is that? The player is great on the field but even better off of it. Yes, I know, he has yet to play a down for the Broncos but what is there not to like? Risner grew up a Broncos fan, is obviously really good at what he does (he was drafted in the second round), fills a huge need for Denver and Mike Munchak loves him.On the latest MHR Radio Podcast (iTunes, Spotify, and Stitcher), Adam Malnati and I love what Elway and Denver did on the second day of the NFL Draft — including the first pick in the second round, Risner.Then you watch his introductory news conference on Saturday, and those words to lead off this story smack you in the face through whichever screen you watch it on. As Vic Lombardi said, you have to remind yourself he’s 23. When I think back to what I was like at 23, it wasn’t close to Risner. Some would still say I’m still lacking on the “mature” part. But what seals Risner as a Mr. B Bronco is what he does off the field. If you have yet to see the video from the NFL, here it is.As Risner said in his tweet, “Bigger than a game.”This is what it’s all about, because it is bigger and more than football.“This is where I’m from,” Risner said in his conference call on Friday night. “I grew up in Wiggins, Colorado. I grew up watching Denver Broncos games. It’s crazy, I made a promise to myself the last time I was at the Denver Broncos Stadium, I think it was called Invesco at the time, my senior year in high school. I remember looking at the field and I told myself, ‘The next time I was at that field I was I was going to be playing for the Broncos.’ “That’s actually coming true and I don’t think it’s hit me yet. I’m just so honored to be a part of that and be able to do community service right here at home. It’s something I’m extremely excited about, but priorities right now are to get there, earn the respect of the team and go to work.”Nothing in life Womens Von Miller Jersey , let alone football, is guaranteed. So you make the most of the time you have, find what you love and try to leave an impact. At 23, Risner seems to have that figured out and that is pretty damn special. Time will tell if Risner leaves his mark on the field, I have no doubt that he will, but you know he will bust his ass and do whatever the coaches tell him. If what he accomplished at Kansas State is any indication, Risner is set for a helluva career. As member of the Wildcats offensive line, he allowed one sack and three quarterback hits. You read that right, one sack. In fact, Risner hasn’t allowed a sack since 2016, his sophomore year.Think about this: He not only sees his dream come true, he sees it happen with the team he loves. You know whenever Risner steps on the field or puts on his Broncos helmet, he knows what it means. He also knows what it means to represent the organization off the field. To represent the community that he grew up in.“My priority right now is to come in and earn the respect of this team and work hard for the guys who are in this football team,” Risner said at his news conference on Saturday. “Eventually I will obviously want to have that impact. That is something that means a lot to me. Football is going to end someday, but I feel like the type of person you are off the field is what matters. I obviously want to be involved in the community and have that impact, but as of right now, my priority is to come in and earn the respect of this football team and the staff here.”There are a lot of ways you can describe Risner.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The Broncos looked beleaguered, beat up and undermanned against the lowly San Francisco 49ers.Overmatched, too? You bet.Short-handed they were, and it sure showed. Yet on this day, George Kittle might have been too much even if Denver had been at full strength.Case Keenum got going too late in a 20-14 loss to San Francisco on Sunday, four days after top target Emmanuel Sanders went down with a torn left Achilles tendon in practice Wednesday.The Broncos (6-7) were out of sorts early, then trying to play catch-up from a 20-0 deficit that saw Kittle take apart the defense time and again on the way to an 85-yard touchdown catch, 210 yards receiving and becoming the 49ers’ first tight end to reach 1,000 yards receiving.“Simply , we didn’t play well, no excuses. We can’t point fingers,” coach Vance Joseph said. “That team came out and outplayed us, in the first half especially. Our record right now, we’re still in it. Every game now is a must win. We haven’t talked about that, but we have to now. Every game that we play from now on is a must win.”Phillip Lindsay ran for a 3-yard score in the third then Keenum connected with DaeSean Hamilton on a 1-yard touchdown toss with 3:53 remaining. Keenum went 24 of 42 for 186 yards.He surely missed Sanders, who led the team with 71 catches for 868 yards and four touchdowns in a bounce-back year. His injury came three days after star cornerback Chris Harris Jr. broke his leg, leaving the Broncos without seven starters from their season opener.“It’s tough,” Keenum said. “They’re guys you can’t replace.”Tim Patrick and Hamilton had seven receptions apiece, Patrick finishing with 85 yards receiving and Hamilton with 47, but most of their production came in the second half playing from way behind.“We got off to a slow start and then we picked it up in the second half,” Patrick said. “We just had to get it going. It was the first time as an offense all together in there. We were kind of shaky in the beginning, but once we got it clicking it was hard to stop us.”Meanwhile, Kittle couldn’t be slowed down in the first half, when he had all seven of his catches and 210 yards. He was only targeted once after halftime.After the game, Joseph reiterated how the Broncos must not beat themselves by falling way behind and making it harder.Denver had two defensive holding penalties in a four-play span in the first quarter and 11 total penalties for 62 yards.“We just have to be consistent,” nose tackle Shelby Harris said. “We can’t go out in the first half and go down 20-0.”There were a few defensive highlights.Von Miller sacked Nick Mullens for a 9-yard loss late in the second quarter. Including the postseason, Miller’s 103½ sacks matched the franchise record held by Simon Fletcher.Linebacker Bradley Chubb had two more sacks for 12 on the season to break Miller’s franchise rookie record of 11½ set in 2011.Miller was angry about his own miscues.“I had three false starts, and that’s ridiculous,” he said. “I’m a gambling man, and I broke today. I didn’t play like I’m supposed to today.”Most of the Broncos will be echoing those sentiments.“Now, it’s back to the lab,” Miller said.
