  1. Yeah that's a little much, but it seems like we just aren't huge fans of Royce. I like taking pressure off of Lindsay, and Gordon is also an excellent pass catcher which I think is something being lost here. This says to me we are looking to target our RBs a little more in the pass game this year.
  2. Looks like Gordon is on his way to denver
  3. Getting Casey is nice. With the amount of picks we have I wouldn't be surprised if we try to make some more moves via trade as well.
  4. The idiots on the fan this morning (Cecil and Prichard I believe) were praising this move as the Broncos "finally getting their splash QB" and are saying this fixes their problem so we can go all in and make more splash free agency signings. How delusional can you be? Unless the Ravens eat a big portion of his contract and Flacco's cap hit is super small, or Case can be offloaded so we don't have to eat his dead money, I absolutely hate this. Nobody in their right mind can actually believe Flacco is a significant upgrade who immediately makes us contenders and a destination for major free agen
  5. I don't see this as badly as many of you seem to. This might not be the most exciting hire ever but it is absolutely a positive move. Every Chicago or San Francisco person you talk to will rave about Fangio, by all accounts hes a no nonsense coach with a proven track record and it's about time he got a chance. He'll have to prove he can handle the head job but honestly look at all the other options out there and this is one of the best we could have realistically hoped for. As far as Kubiak coming back, I also don't see that as a bad thing. The dynamic is a little tricky, but everyone involve
  6. The thing is, I do believe Keenum is "good enough" but only so long as we have a coaching staff that has the ability to elevate the talent and make the correct in game decisions. That's where the mistake was made, believing that everything else around keenum was right where it needed to be to make a run. Right now we have nothing that can put us over the top. When we had Manning it was always said that he was a player that lifted all boats, we don't have that right now, we have no "it" factor that raises us above other competitive teams.
  7. I agree, and I think at this point we'll labor our way to a 7-9/8-8ish record. Keenum is just the QB he's always been, and that's an unspectacular bottom half of the league starter. He's the type of player who if put in the right position with good support and good coaching can be serviceable and win you games. I legit heard people say they thought Keenum was going to be the next Drew Brees after his year last year, and many bought into the unfounded optimism that he was going to continue an upward trajectory to become a star. Let me be clear: I think Keenum is fine, I like Keenum, Keenum is n
  8. I've defended Vance since he got here, I've always felt like he was dealt a bad hand and that we needed to be more patient with him. After tonight my mood has changed, this is 100% a game you can't lose being up 10 in the 4th. It's just going to make me angry writing up all the boneheaded mistakes we made at the end of this game, but this one was here for the taking and the coaching staff mismanaged the hell out of it. This was a classic case of playing scared at the end of the game, and getting beat because of it. Going into this season I thought the roster didn't look great and w
  9. Getting Keenum is obviously not ideal, we clearly aren't a championship contender now that we've made this move. However, I don't think there was really any move we could have made this off season (other than making a huge trade or signing Brees) that would have put us back in contention this year. Getting Keenum basically signals what we all should have already known, that we are not a hot destination at this point and that this is going to be a process. I would have preferred Cousins like many, but its become pretty obvious that there was never any chance he was going to sign here and honest
  10. Just got back from the game, that was pitiful. Beyond the obvious (special teams was a disaster, defense cant get any pressure, no one on offense is worth anything besides Sanders) this team is in real trouble. We are approaching a serious crossroads, it's been quite a while since we've faced adversity like this, and I'm not just talking about this season, I think we all pretty much expect that this season is done from a playoffs/contending standpoint, but rather contending in the near future. Right now we are a team that has plenty of talent in the prime of their careers, some of which are ge
