  1. Week 7 (TNF) GDT: Chiefs @ Broncos

    You have to play Lock this season - its not like he is an No.1 pick - he is a second rounder that we need to find out if he can play. The results really don't matter much at this stage - its about finding out which players are capable of taking the team forward. Firesale the established vets, see what is good enough to keep and dump the rest (man - how is Wadman still on the roster - surely there has to be a better FA punter out there somewhere).
  2. Week 7 (TNF) GDT: Chiefs @ Broncos

    One question - from those of you who know a little about OL play - is Bolles capable of playing anywhere else along the OL?
  3. Week 7 (TNF) GDT: Chiefs @ Broncos

    my comment about the game - that was disappointing
  4. Week 5 GDT: Broncos @ Chargers

    You have to say that - despite the clear deficiencies - the team took another step forward last night. Over the five games there has been a clear and consistent improvement. Credit for that has to go to the coaching staff and that makes me optimistic for the future.
  5. Week 5 GDT: Broncos @ Chargers

    All going our way at the moment
  6. Week 5 GDT: Broncos @ Chargers

    That's a good start - let's see what the defence can do now.
  7. What do we go in the 2020 draft?

    I feel sorry for Rosen - I liked him coming into the draft - but could he have landed in a worse situation than Arizona last year and Miami this year - I wouldn't have an issue with dealing a 3rd for him (it would be a high third remember).
  8. Broncos OLB Bradley Chubb tears ACL; out for year

    I was resisting the idea of tanking this season and seeing what the kids could do - I wanted to give Fangio the best chance to win - but losing Chubb dramatically alters the perspective. Let Fangio get the players he needs for his defence - lets see what they kids can do (especially Lock) - focus on killing the draft and look forward to next season.
  9. Broncos OLB Bradley Chubb tears ACL; out for year

    As bff-uk has said - with CHJ checking out already - we are in for a dumpster fire of a season. an upside may be that Elway has no choice now but to embrace a full rebuild.
  10. Broncos OLB Bradley Chubb tears ACL; out for year

    The problem is that he was going to continue to suffer from cramps and that made him more vulnerable to other injuries - like this one.

    Serious questions if that is the case.
  12. Week 4 GDT: Jacksonville Jaguars @ Denver Broncos

    Twice they should have buried the QB and they let him escape.
  13. Chris Harris Jr Trade?

    That is probably more to do with Ellis holding the purse strings than on Elway's shoulders.
  14. Week 2 GDT: CHI (0-1) @ DEN (0-1)

    Not apeaking for p-mac here - but I do think we are on the same page. we have both said it was the wrong call because - 1. It was the low percentage call 2. We had momentum and the Bears D was gassed going into OT 3. When we got the 2 we forced the Bears to go for it instead of running out the clock. Now - would you take a 1 point lead with 30 secs to go - yes. some have said all we needed was one big defensive play - in fact we needed 4 or 5 defensive plays - the Bears needed one big completion - and they got it. All these factors should have been taken into account and Fangio should have gone with the PAT. Still no guarantee we win - but we increase the odds of winning. In the presser Fangio said he did it to make a point / change the culture - but that only works if you win as a result of making the call - we lost.
  15. Week 2 GDT: CHI (0-1) @ DEN (0-1)

    The argument being made is that the 2 was the right call - but only because it was successful - that is the essence of hindsight. The argument is that everyone would take a 1 point lead with 30 seconds to go - but to get that 1 point lead you take a chance on a call that is successful leas than half the time league wide with an offence that is well below league average.
