When the Broncos ran out of quarterbacks that weekend, their first step was not to look outside the organization for a seasoned freelance agent who could step in shortly to help the team win.
Instead, Denver was so desperate they asked the NFL if they could promote two offensive quality control coaches to QB.
Rascati was a college QB who led James Madison University to an FCS championship in 2004. Calabrese played a bit of QB when he was a wide receiver / quarterback at the University of Central Florida from 2008 to 2012.
Denver eventually settled on a wide receiver / quarterback who played more recently than Calabrese. Rookie Kendall Hinton will start for the Broncos today. He played quarterback in Wake Forest before becoming a broad receiver for the Demon Deacons. The uncovered training squad WR will play in its first NFL game today.
The only time something like this happened was in 2009 when the Eagles were out of QBs at training camp. That year Philadelphia put a trainee coach, Matt Nagy, at the center of a training session. When the NFL found out the Eagles were using an intern as a QB, they also said, « No, you can’t. Nagy only practiced for one day.
With Rascati and Calabrese on the sidelines and Hinton in play, there’s only one thing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving weekend. At least I’m not writing about Tim Tebow’s return.
