  1. Let the Offseason Begin

    What is a concern in my opinion are the rumours around Harris. It is suggested that Elway won't talk extension because he wants to keep open the prospect of a trade while Harris wants talks before the draft. Now if Elway was to trade Harris or let him walk in FA then I would be seriously p*ssed off.

    AAA is having a case of the rattle being thrown out of the pram.

    The Broncos are also carrying over $21million in dead cap money.
  6. Let the Offseason Begin

    Looks like the Broncos will draft some OL given that Paradis, Turner and Veldheer are gone.
  7. Let the Offseason Begin

    Seems like the Broncos only offered a one-year deal - worried about his recovery from injury.
  8. Let the Offseason Begin

    Word is that Rosen is being lined up for a trade to the Pats
  9. Let the Offseason Begin

    Well he's a sh*te CB - so - Saying that - as a WR he had a habit of dropping the ball on a regular basis.

    And where did I give him a pass ? The biggest criticism I would have of Elway over the past four years is not acknowledging that Lynch was a bust after one year and trading up to get a QB in 2017.
  11. 2019 NFL QB Draft Prospects

    Yes they did - and Elway tried to trade up to get Darnold. The jury is out on all four guys - they may or may not succeed (and Elway didn't rate Allen or Rosen - he may be proven right on wrong on that decision). Unless you are drafting top of the draft it really is a crap shoot. Lose one extra game that season and it could have been a different kettle of fish. Elway has not succeeded in getting a QB and deserves criticism for that. But to think that it is easy to find a QB is nonsense. Having Flacco means that the Broncos do not have to draft a QB this year - in what is considered a weak QB class. Unless some other avenue is found Elway will have to take one next year - and he will likely have to sell the farm to get one.
  12. 2019 NFL QB Draft Prospects

    There are a few - Browns - 2015 Josh McCown (8) / Johnny Manziel (6) / Austin Davis (2) 2016 Cody Kessler (8) / Robert Griffin III (5) / Josh McCown (3) 2017 DeShone Kizer (15) / Kevin Hogan (1) 2018 Baker Mayfield (13) / Tyrod Taylor (3) Jets - 2015 Ryan Fitzpatrick (16) 2016 Ryan Fitzpatrick (11) / Bryce Petty (4) / Geno Smith (1) 2017 Josh McCown (13) / Bryce Petty (3) 2018 Sam Darnold (13) / Josh McCown (3) Bills - 2015 Matt Cassel (1) / Tyrod Taylor (13) / EJ Manuel (2) 2016 Tyrod Taylor (15) / EJ Manuel (1) 2017 Tyrod Taylor (14) / Nathan Peterman (2) 2018 Josh Allen (11) / Nathan Peterman (2) / Derek Anderson (1) / LeSean McCoy (1)*/ Matt Barkley (1) Dolphins - 2015 Ryan Tannehill (16) 2016 Ryan Tannehill (13)Matt Moore (3) 2017 Jay Cutler (14)Matt Moore (2) 2018 Ryan Tannehill (11)Brock Osweiler (5) Cards - 2015 Carson Palmer (16) 2016 Carson Palmer (15) / Drew Stanton (1) 2017 Carson Palmer (7) / Blaine Gabbert (5) / Drew Stanton (4) 2018 Josh Rosen (13) / Sam Bradford (3) Of the 32 starting QBs in the NFL last year - 12 have been drafted since 2015 - including 4 drafted last year (and the jury is still out on all four). Of these 11 starting QBs - Drafted 1.1 - Mayfield, Goff, Winston Drafted 1.2 - Wentz, Trubisky, Drafted 1.3 - Darnold Of the remainder - Mahomes 1.10 (Broncos drafted Bolles at 1.20) Prescott 4.135 (Dallas tried to trade up to take Lynch) Watson 1.12 (Broncos drafted Bolles at 1.20) Allen 1.17 (jury out) Rosen 1.10 (jury out) Driskel 6.207 In 2017 the Broncos did try to trade up - and Watson was mentioned - but it was a year after taking Lynch and he was regarded as a project. If you want to be sure of a franchise QB you need to be drafting top three - they must warrant that pick - and there is still no guarantee that you get an NFL caliber QB. Now - it is possible that the Cards are shopping Rosen - and if they are I would consider giving a second rounder for him - but it looks like if he is traded his destination could be NE.
  13. 2019 NFL QB Draft Prospects

    Sure QBs grow on trees - they are ten a penny. 45 QBs have been drafted in the last four years - how many have turned out to be the QBOTF? Now take out those who were picked with the top three picks - how many of those left are QBOTF?
  14. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    Don't think anyone is disputing that Flacco is not the long term answer - what this trade does do is allow Elway flexibility. If he sees a QB at 1.10 that he wants then he can take him - if not he can take BPA and wait until next year when there is reputed to be a better crop of QBs.
