  1. OMG!! What surprises me, maybe even stuns me is that when I heard we were going to Lock two games ago, I thought it was unfair to him. He was so limited in reps that I thought we were putting him in a position to fail. Well there has to be something to that virtual stuff he was doing. I have always been a huge believer in visualization as a tool and whatever Drew did to be so ready well kudos to him. Nice to get the QB issue resolved once and for all and I am rooting for them to win. As far as the draft goes it's bap. Imagine adding a LT or a speedy receiver or just having the ability to go after the best player there! NICE!!
  2. on one of the threads the other week we mentioned teams who were a threat to the broncos - like maybe the broncos are the real threat to the broncos ala Ellis and Elway and 20k not attending. Baltimore was mentioned as was KC and we poo pooed NEP and rightfully so - again the NEP have nowhere come close to their reputation if it was not for that pathetic division which has been incredibly pathetic since virtually 2000 on. Anyway my point is no one mentioned Houston and I think they should have been mentioned as an AFC power. I mean you have to throw in Watson with the likes of Wilson, Mahomes and Jackson even though there showing against Baltimore was pathetic. if this team had a good coach they would really be something but yeah look at what tree O'Brien comes from - the overhyped much like the NEP - futility tree!! i dont know where that line came from either - threats to the broncos - like we are even close - cant see us winning this one
  3. GDT Week 13: LAC vs DEN: DREW LOCK EDITION

    I know you go on to explain further but I generally agree with this statement except for the fact that I wanted a high pick for a possible qb. Thats why it was important to get a look at Lock and I for one thought it was admittedly to early to do that but the kid looked alright. If we can move forward with him I am not really concerned with where we pick and therefore can root for the wins which to me is only natural. Also that college qb class is not shaping up to be as good as I thought it would be so bap if Lock can continue to sell us .
  4. Week 9 GDT: Browns @ Broncos

    I agree with the Chiefs being a threat. I don't even like watching them when Mahomes is playing because he is so damn good (i get so fn jealous ). Also bestever Jackson may be a game manager at this stage but his improvement in one year and their 12-3 record under him lays the foundation for quite some future. Again I just hate all the glorification of the Pats - they are only a team like so many other top tier teams (top 6-8) who success is based on a pathetic division. Like how do their fans even lay down good money to watch them play the Jets, Bills and Dolphins - what a joke!!
  5. Week 9 GDT: Browns @ Broncos

    While at the gym a few days ago about six of us were working out our jaws more than anything else. The best thing that I heard last night was the commentary during the Pats game because it reiterated what I was saying at the gym. I respect the Pats and was on the GOAT bandwagon for Brady about a decade ago - simply the best ever. But their TEAM success is due to the fact that their division has been brutally awful for over two decades!! The announcers commented on how the Pats have not faced a good D this year and not this type of Raven offence before (has anyone really). The Pats are only a top 6-8 team in this league and many teams in the NFC are way better. It's just due to their pathetically easy schedule that they set themselves up for the home field playoff runs and look what happens when they have to travel outside of New England. And once at the dance its basically a 50/50 shot at winning. I honestly don't know why this aspect isn't dwelled on!!! Also after the draft I really ripped on Lamar Jackson and deservedly took a lot of heat here. I have to admit I was wrong and after game two of the season I ate crow and bought his jersey. I have tried to hate the Ravens for outing us a few years back but have always loved the team. Their great D's remind me of us and time has let me forgive them for beating us out to the SB. Now for us - as much as I want us to lose at this point I can't help but want to win when watching the game. Fant finally came around and a mobile qb was great to see as it gives a glimpse to what this offence should look like. But someone else said it and I scream every time I see it. Why the **** when its third and long (14) and most teams in the league drool with a defensive rushing opportunity for the kill do we send only 3 - like CMON MAN!!!!!!!! Also the simple additions that have improved our D making it even more awesome makes me wonder what Fangio could do with some infusion of nice draft pics but I still think we need a minimum of two OL high draft pics if not 3............
  6. Week 6 GDT: Titans @ Broncos

    with regard to the lottery I absolutely hate it and if you do end up doing it it should only be for the bottom three teams HATE THE FRICKIN LOTTERY!!
  7. WEEK 1 @ OAK TOWN

    I always loved Mayock from his network days. Seemed like Gruden was running the show when he cleared AB to play. Last night though my son showed me what AB released twitter wise. We both commented on how that actually showed AB wanted out from under the Raiders because it would force a counter by Oakland. Today Mayock countered, glad he had the balls to tell AB to F off as well as Gruden. Mayock's draft was questionable but he stuck to the character of the guys he drafted. Then Chucky goes out and gets idiots like AB, Burfict and Icognito who only talked about shooting up a funeral home a few months ago. Yeah Gruden I want to surround my young up and comers with the likes of idiots like these guys and since they are your guys include yourself too as the leader of those idiots! Glad Mayock showed he was in control and not Chucky.
  8. So agree with the bold and the last sentence overall. Agree we stole our future qb!
  9. My kid keeps telling me the SF trade was gifted to SF for them releasing Scang to us - remember SF originally said no re his availability. Not sure how this would have worked but it may have been as simple as Lynch saying you owe me and this was it?? If in fact it relates to this I can deal with it and in reality we all have to deal with it as it is done & now OVER with. As far as the draft goes who can argue Fant. It was a position of need and he was undoubtedly one of the BPA with 1.2. This whole board wanted Risner and Elway did too! I wanted a QB at 1.1 and even suggested moving up to finally just get one and look what happened - our 3rd pick. Clearly not everyone loves Lock but as our third pick, really - if you cannot even be optomistic on draft day well then just tune out from the team for a few years. Review the board and many called for Dramon Jones way prior to his selection - Elway delivered that too. Hollins was a good pick and again many here see that. So we couldn't fill everything but we really didn't have that many picks. Was it a perfect day 3 - no way! I mean I kept hoping we would get Ridley and he went to the Bears in the 6th who were my adopted team last year (lol - good for them, nice weapon to add in the frickin 6th). So hindsight makes it easy to complain and see some things but really I think Elway did a great job and clearly showed he is getting it on draft day!! I would rate it an A minus - we did good. & again the Harris matter will now get his attention and be rectified - he will be the highest paid Bronco back and he deserves it. He took a team discount when he didn't have too. He is getting on in years and is still great and has at least three years left. We are not winning the SB anytime soon so do what's right and pay the man - our best corner should be the highest paid on the team - it only makes sense!!!!!!!!!!! My bad, just saw that Ridley went in the fourth - too much alcohol I guess..............
  10. Call me IMPRESSED!! I know many of us have doubted Elway including myself but I really believe he has come into his own as a GM especially with regard to the draft. He is locking in on value and character. When I saw our schedule and felt that Flacco would not get protection I saw us winning 5-6 games but so far with this draft I see Fant being a definite red zone option. Yeah it takes time for a TE to develop but he will be a definite red zone option for sure. I really like the Lock pick too. I kind of liked Haskins more but during the past week or two I really started liking Lock and as I mentioned previously I wanted QB at 1.10 so Elway had his cake and ate it too! One more note - I also think that the Harris squabble will get rectified. No trade indicates that to me. He won't get 15 but he can be our highest paid back which he deserves. I would just hope for an escape two years out. I think it's easy enough to rectify. You tell him man your timing sucked and caught me off guard and I was focused on the draft for the past two months and that's why I reacted the way I did. Yeah, your our best back and I can make you the highest paid but no one gets what they expect just look at Bell and Brown - something like that ought to do it (I hope anyway, lol). PS i want one receiver and the rest D today!
  11. TACKLING IS FOOTBALL!! I hate guys who arrive to the nfl and can't tackle - it just makes me sick. Greedy can sure cover but I just like a little more - again it is football
  12. Well I wasn't really a fan of the trade back but I didn't mind the Fant pick at all. I was so disgusted when we resigned Manureman this year because yeah he is crap and we finally added a nice tight end. As far as Butt goes well lets just hope for his case he is able to play - I feel bad for him. I know Elway has too much ego but man get in check and try and get Rosen on the cheap. Who cares if you like him or not as a person - we need to win games and need a qb in a bad way. But hey Elway has Flacco and is in win now mode..........lmao! Again Fant seems to follow last years model of player drafted. Good heart, good kid. Lets at least keep on that track!
  13. 2019 NFL QB Draft Prospects

    I don't trust next year at all...........first I think we have a decent team and will have close to seven wins everything remaining equal which puts us in no mans land for a qb next year. Also next years class is chalk full of hype but there are cracks in the armor so to speak. Fromm disappointed this year, took a step back - what will he do next year? Tua has one major injury and I love him but man he is already damaged goods. The way Alabama works their players I can see him getting overworked and that knee will only get worse. And this is strictly a personal thought and you guys know how kind of stupid I can be but I lost faith in Herbert because he didn't declare this year - lol - how stupid can you be to saddle yourself in next years draft versus this years though this post may actually make an argument as to why he may have done the right thing. Basically we don't really know how next year shapes up so lets deal with where we are today. Anyway I see the rumour mill for Rosen has heated up with the Chargers offering a second. The Giants had offered a third but if Gettleman doesn't match that second he truly is a moron. Gettleman knows what Rosen was worth last year and now he has some NFL experience to boot and the Giant second is better than the Charger second any day. If Gettleman falls short on Rosen he will truly look like an idiot. To conclude I kind of think we may be in the drivers seat re qb this year and one way or another I would secure that valueable asset!! Like I said remember all the moaning on the board when we didn't get one last year. We are going to slip out of the high qb pick if we wait and we still won't have a legitimate qb of the future.
  14. 2019 NFL QB Draft Prospects

    I do think we are taking a qb in the first round................within the last few days it has been confirmed that all 4 of the top qb's - Murray, Haskins, Lock and Jones will be hosted by us. Last year there was quite a bit of disappointment that we did not get a qb and admittedly I wanted Chubb from the onset thinking Keenum was serviceable. Well that was not the case and I actually believe Flacco is less serviceable. He is not agile and compounding that problem is our O-line which needs heavy improvement for Flacco to succeed. He also has not played well in a few years. As Elway raved on about Flacco I couldn't help but think that possibly the air in Colorado is poisoned with weed. However, the fact that it has come out that all top four qb's are being hosted by us confirms in my mind that Elway was putting up a smokescreen regarding masking the intent of drafting a qb in the first. In fact it may be that the Bronco's are now in the driver's seat with regard to picking a qb after Murray goes one. Many mocks have no qb's falling after Murray making us next in line at ten. Also today Rotoworld advises Rosen will be moved possibly eliminating another team from having a qb need. The only thing that messes up us being in the drivers seat is a qb needy team jumping ahead of us which is why I can see Elway moving up to number three on draft day. I think it is clear Elway is desperate here and may even trade with his buddy Lynch should someone beat us and move to three (if they are qb needy). I think in a way we all are desperate for true hope - a true possibility of a qb of the future. Last year we picked five but it was clear that qb's were going high and they did, eliminating the qb's Denver wanted. This year we pick ten and in actuality may be in a better position than last year to end up with our qb. The only issue is which one? I actually like Haskins the best but am very intrigued by Murray and I like Lock too so I am ok with all three though I only would trade up for Haskins. Now I should clarify that I really don't want to trade up but if it gets us the qb I want (Haskins) I am all for it. But Elway is in the driver's seat there and perhaps he should pull a Costanza and pick the opposite of what he is thinking meaning the qb he likes the least -lol.
  15. Let the Offseason Begin

    along with Lock and Haskins. I clearly believe that we will be taking a qb in the first. It may even involve a trade up if they fall in love with a guy like Haskins. And you know what the more I think of it the more I like the idea of taking a qb in the first. It appears that we may be able to take the qb we want so why not do it - when would we get another chance to be in the drivers seat with regard to qb selection? We have a good chance now and all the smoke and mirror stuff about Flacco being the guy just got blown up with us hosting the four qb's prior to the draft. Just get er don Elway - seize the opportunity and please, please finally succeed in getting that qb. I would suggest taking the guy you like the least as clearly taking the guy you like has not worked - lol.............just a thought
