  1. 2018 Free Agency Discussion Thread

    It’s like we’re the Packers or the Steelers with all this penny-pinching in free agency.
  2. Post Keenum Reality - IMO / Round 1 Propects

    Our defense ruined a year and a half of Cam’s career. He didn’t begin to look even sort of like his 2015 self until half way through last year.
  3. There’s still holes on the insides of my garage door from that game! As a veteran member here (joined 2006) I think we need to stick to football and not make things personal. What happened with Emmanuel is what it is, I wish him and his family all the best, and if it was a bad situation I don’t think it’s our place to pass judgement. By all accounts he seems like a great guy that is loved by front office as well as his teammates. He was also a critical piece on the Super Bowl 50 team. Let’s drop it and talk football.

    Yeah @thebestever6 don’t ever appear hesitant/weak/unsure of yourself. Being confident and comfortable with who you are is one of the most important traits for girls. Like 1234567 said, just say you like her and you’d like to hang out. Worst she can do is say no. I’ve been shot down before. Every guy has. It sucks sure but it’s not the end of the world. And who cares if she’s out of your league? Girls who are worth it always are. My girl is out my league, as those of you who are friends with me on Facebook can plainly see, lol. Aim high.
  5. Maybe we should do that and then Joe Ellis can ask Oskar Blues if they want to pony up $25m for stadium naming rights. Oskar Blues Stadium at Mile High. It could be a lot worse.
  6. So here's the question, which is the better combination: Barkley at No. 5 + the best remaining OG in the 2nd or Nelson at No. 5 and the best remaining RB in the 2nd?
  7. Post Keenum Reality - IMO / Round 1 Propects

    Case in point, no pun intended, is Elway's comment here to Jeff Legwold of ESPN. I think this is a sign that we're not going QB at No. 5. Elway has a vested interest in making teams think we're going to take a QB at No. 5 and it could cause Buffalo, Miami or Arizona (or who knows) to offer us a King's Ransom for that pick. This is the first quote I've heard from Elway where, at least if we look deeply at it, it could signal we're looking at getting a non-QB blue-chip player there to help Case.

    There is a history of that with this fan base, especially that element of the fan base. No one wanted Vance, most wanted Kyle and some people wanted someone else, once Vance was hired people liked it. Same with Bolles in the draft. Same with Keenum this year. Hell, even when we went for Peyton there was a portion who thought it was a mistake and we should stick with Tebow.

    He had been slipping for a while and the franchise kept it under wraps. In Mr. B's last interview, to Woody Paige in 2009, he said he had been suffering from "memory loss" for a few years. I heard from a very well-connected media person, that he had been slipping since about 2006 and that Ellis had been taking over more and more behind the scenes. Bowlen didn't even interview Mac, it was Ellis who flew to Boston to talk to him. Once he was Ellis' choice, he flew to Denver for a quick sit-down with Mr. B who signed off on Ellis' choice.
  10. Broncos Sign QB Case Keenum

    Good points all around.
  11. 2018 Free Agency Discussion Thread

    Wow. There is no way this is a coincidence. On the same day two of the three most connected guys on the Broncos beat (the third being Renck) are out with a column on the Broncos needs for a WR. Woody has this today on the 7news website.

    I just read that Klis article and this quote has me worried: When Klis says "NFL Source" it means someone high up inside Dove Valley. Now, I wouldn't mind, and I have mocked, us taking Michael Gallup in the late second or early third round, but given the lack of WR talent in this year's class, it's likely he gets picked higher than that.
  13. Broncos Sign QB Case Keenum

    I was listening to The Fan morning show on my way in this morning and Troy Renck, who is filling in this week for Stink, said something that caught my ear. He said that, as soon as they realized that Cousins was leaning towards Minnesota, they zeroed-in on Case. He was "the guy" for the last month or so. This gives me pause because, we've all said many times, that Elway and this Front Office seem to zero-in on guys in the draft and then take them, or better said, reach for them. It seems like we just did exactly that in free agency. Case really had no other offers, there wasn't a wild goose chase for him, he wasn't taking visits all over the league and then making a decision. I think between the Kubiak connection (U of Houston and Houston Texans) and the fact that they didn't want to be left without a chair when the music stopped forced us to make a quick decision. It was always going to be Case, just like in the draft last year it was always going to be Bolles (so much so they even thought about trading up for him) and in the coaching search it was always going to be Vance. That portends poorly for this upcoming draft, seems they haven't learned from their past mistakes.

    That's what I've been saying for a while now. It took Mike a good five years to realize that Plummer was what he was and by the time he finally decided to embark on a real rebuild, beginning in the 2006 draft with Cutler & Co., it was too late to save his job. I still wonder what kind of path this franchise would have taken had Ellis not jumped at the opportunity for a power grab when Mr. B got sick. If Mike had stuck around in 2009, instead of going through the McDisaster, I wonder how things would have worked out.

    We got a late-fifth for a future Hall of Famer at a critical position and that was considered good value. No way we're getting more for a slightly above-average RB.
