  1. So agree with the bold and the last sentence overall. Agree we stole our future qb!
  2. 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..............
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Let the Offseason Begin

    I am so stoked we got someone to bite on Keenum!! On Wednesday night my son and I were talking about the qb situation. I felt like we couldn't even draft a qb with the two knuckleheads anchoring us. I like Flacco it's just that with our line I dislike him - he's not a good fit with the line we have (is anyone - maybe Murray and R Wilson). It was my hope to get Lock at ten and yeah I know the line would hurt him but I don't expect him to come in and start. Heck I would even trade up and get Haskins. I am so tired of this qb situation killing us that I want it RESOLVED AND NOW!! Like the news regarding our cap space.....
  10. Josh Rosen

    I agree with getting Lock at ten. We may be lucky enough to have a qb fall to us and I don't think we will be in the top ten picking for a while moving forward in the coming drafts. We need to resolve qb (at least attempt to for the upteenth time). In my mind Flacco can end up worse than Keenum if we don't get him a good line and there are a lot of holes in our line. PS with regard to Rosen my son is a football junkie and told me when he interviewed with us last year it went very poorly. No one on our staff liked him at all. I would look at him though, even for my second favourite team (God I hate saying it - the Lions). I even heard the Pats were interested in Rosen. I sure hope that doesn't happen - just what the Pats need. Will be interesting though and if the Jags sign Foles a qb falls to us but I see a trade up for Lock and I can see Mr. Desperate for qb (Elway) jumping up. I think he is laying low trying to make everyone think we r settled at qb..............man it pains me to type that "settled at qb" bcuz there is JUST NO WAY THATS THE CASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    Honestly I love the game but I don't know it to the degree that some of the great posters do. My son has coached football and when we watch the game it is amazing what he sees and what I don't see. So if you notice my posts are of a general nature - I keep it simple. I love some of the posters here and their depth with regard to what they see - too many to name. PS I also would take anything in getting rid of Keenum now including a 7th rounder in the year 3015. Actually I think I might give away some of our 3000 year seventh rounders for someone to take him off our hands............lmao. I hope John can rectify this mess but I think any other team would bet on Keenum being released so why trade for him. As the other team I wouldn't even give up a 3015 pic - ps I do know you can't go that far out...........
  12. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    I actually brought up the possibility of us trading for Flacco last night as my son and I were watching the sixer game. My son thought I was crazy - that it would never happen. He's not a Flacco fan. That doesn't mean I love the deal though but I knew John was desperate. Honestly I thought he was going to trade up into the top 3 and grab a qb. I don't think that's happening now. Man I'm hoping this works out. I was actually happy when we signed Keenum last year but my feelings quickly changed. I'm getting tired of this but you know what there are only a handful of elite qb's in the league so it might very well take some time to fix this qb issue. Here's hoping.........
  13. Browns at Broncos' GDT

    It's funny how you can agree with a person so much but obviously you cannot agree all the time (I usually agree with most of what AAA says). I know a lot of the board hated Mayfield draft wise. But I loved him. He reminds me of the character types we drafted in this very successful draft - guys who eat, sleep, drink football!! In fact I refer to Mayfield as "Johnny Football" when I reference him because if there was ever anyone who could live up to this ridiculous nick name I can see him doing it. It's still early and there are a lot of young guys on CLE who I believe will be kicked square where it counts when it comes to playing in Denver's altitude. So yeah I can see Chubb and VON causing havoc! I see us winning but as a point of fact whose team would you rather be sitting with at this juncture?. My good friend is a CLE fan so we argue back and forth and honestly I think I'd rather be in CLE's shoes at this point......
  14. Pittsburgh @ Denver GDT--Maybe we don't suck?

    I think Case is showing improvement and it is based on the fact that the line is protecting him. Any qb would only get better with more protection. And man I am really impressed with Bolles lately. I think it has been about five games without a flag - kudos to him for his improvement. With Case improving I think it bides us time. Who knows how much more he can improve but what I like is that with his current improvement it perhaps let us have a normal draft at a normal pace taking who we want and not over reaching for a qb just to say we got one. We can take players based partially on what the team needs and I hope Elway sticks to the same system of drafting kids who eat, sleep and drink football. These are the types of kids that given an opportunity will succeed. But man everyone is talking about this draft class. In a way I would not want to be Elway - imagine the PRESSURE on him to repeat this draft class success. However, though the formula is there - eat,sleep,drink, EVERYTHING IS ABOUT FOOTBALL kind of kids and it wont go wrong!!
  15. Pittsburgh @ Denver GDT--Maybe we don't suck?

    Lindsay is so frickn special. His feet are a step ahead of his eyes which is an impossibility theoretically but watch him and accept it as fact!!
