Denver Broncos head coach John Fox impressed with Marquice Cole

The Denver Broncos wouldn’t…would they?

They wouldn’t play a cornerback they signed on Tuesday in the AFC Championship game…would they?

That depends: did you see how Quentin Jammer looked after the Broncos lost Chris Harris to a torn ACL last Sunday against the San Diego Chargers? If you missed him, he was the guy getting burned by Keenan Allen during the entire fourth quarter.

Cole did play for the New England Patriots, Denver’s opponent, this very season. They released him in December, and then the Broncos picked him up this week to replace Harris.

Whether that helps the Broncos or not, Cole’s old teammate Aqib Talib wasn’t too upset about the situation. When asked, this was what he had to say:

That’s my dog, man. Good luck, Quice. Cash that check, baby. Get that check, baby. Got to pay the bills, man.”

It would certainly be intriguing if he played meaningful snaps against his former team on Sunday. Still, the Broncos wouldn’t…would they?

Today head coach John Fox said he has been impressed with Cole this week (quote courtesy of the Denver Post):

He has picked up our system fast and has had an excellent week.”

OK then.

Besides Jammer and Cole, the Broncos can turn to Hall of Famer Champ Bailey and rookie Kayvon Webster (though Webster played only one snap against the Chargers last week) to fill Harris’s spot in Sunday’s game.
