  1. GDT Week 3: Denver Broncos @ Green Bay Packers

    I think what sums up this team so far is the fact that we can’t get a pass rush. That was literally the biggest thing this team/defense had going in it’s favor. When Von Miller/Bradley Chubb haven’t registered a sack in 3 games and someone else (Harris/Walker/Wolfe/Gotsis/Jones (or just the interior combined)) aren’t feasting because those 2 are drawing so much attention that is concerning. Honestly, about the only positives so far is the young offensive talent has looked improved. Other than that, this is just a bad football team facing the toughest schedule in football. I don’t expect things to turn around this season and Elway and the rest of the FO will be forced to take a long hard look at whether they’re going to continue trying to bandaid this team or embrace a rebuild.

    Exactly. Fromm’s statistical numbers haven’t and won’t ever standout, but when you watch him you just can’t walk away without being impressed.
  3. 2020 College Prospects

    Fromm’s good. I don’t know that he’s had a poor throw all night, pressured or not.

    I don’t know who else is watching the Georgia/Notre Dame game, but Fromm is so impressive. Not from a physical standpoint, but he just understands the game. He’s at the LOS making calls, he never panics, he has terrific accuracy, he looks defenders off, he’s reading defenses. He’s just already doing things that NFL QBs are required to do from a mental standpoint and does it with poise. He’s a scary prospect for me because he does lack the physical tools, but man he’s just a guy that seems hard to bet against having a really good NFL career.

    He’s not as polished as those 2 or some others in the past 5 or so years. But in terms of physical gifts....INSANE, he’s going to be a beast.
  6. GDT Week 3: Denver Broncos @ Green Bay Packers

    Agreed. Outside of the trenches and QB if Denver were picking top 5 I would think Jeudy would be under strong consideration.
  7. GDT Week 3: Denver Broncos @ Green Bay Packers

    I get it, but don’t really feel bad. I don’t think that it is because he isn’t good enough, I think it’s because he’s stubborn and doesn’t take to coaching. Bolles physically is exceptional. He is undersized, but there is absolutely no reason he is getting beat the way he is and holding the way he is. He just doesn’t understand the game and hasn’t made improvements in his technique. There was a play last week where the man he was blocking had no shot at making a play on the football, the play went away from him, and Bolles took him to the ground and was completely out of position on his block. His hand use is literally always in a hug position. His hands are literally never inside, they’re always wrapped. He plays hard, no doubt. But he doesn’t seem to be able to play smart. As I said before there is a difference between playing hard and playing stupid and he hasn’t/can’t figure that out. When a run play is away from you to get called for a hold by taking a defender to the ground is just stupid football. I love his tenacity, but come on man, you have to understand the situation. Further after having 11 more holding penalties than the next guy, he still thinks he’s being picked on?.....figure it out and quit being stubborn and difficult to coach which is all that is coming out from Denver right now. Denver’s staff and players are frustrated as hell because Bolles should be a good NFL LT.

    Yeah. Fromm just seems to “get it” from a QB standpoint. He does everything well against elite competition. His physical measurables are all that hold him back from being a top 5 lock, if not #1 overall pick.
  9. Random Thoughts

    The day I went to TC was the day that Sanders/Sutton got into it. It’s why Sanders is arguably (probably) the MVP of this team. He takes every practice rep at 100% and holds people accountable, while able to roll out in practices and games and be the best player on the team. Sanders is the leader of this team (has been on offense since Manning left) and upholds it with his work ethic in practice and production on gamedays. I’d have no issue moving him and he won’t draw the same price as others, but in all honesty he is the most valuable player on this team, not just in the locker room, but on the field, and would be the last piece I’d want to move...and that’s including Von (who when I was at TC was the clear cut laziest and least energetic player on the field). Sanders is an absolute beast who loves football, i’ll side with him all day.

    Don’t disagree with this either, which is why I think this team needs to make a stronger commitment to the OL. We can’t be sending out a young QB with a guy like Bolles at LT. It’s a recipe for disaster....and this is a strong flip of perspective for me. Not that I think every year and offseason needs to be dedicated to the OL, but this team is in so much desperation at the position that a commitment to keep them safe needs to be made. Risner looks excellent, James if he can stay healthy at RT will be very solid. Leary is gone after this year and Bolles needs to either make a massive jump or be replaced. IMO, Denver needs to make 2 big moves in either FA or the draft to solidify this OL for the next 3-5 years and give a QB a chance.
  11. 2020 College Prospects

    Agreed. We’ll see what Fromm ends up getting listed at come draft time, but Georgia has him at 6’2” 220. Usually teams college sizes over compensate a bit, but if he’s around that, his size won’t be an issue. The bigger issue will be his arm talent and athleticism.
  12. 2020 College Prospects

    Completely agree. It’s a crapshoot, especially at that position. I think Fromm is a great example of this. I think he’s fully capable of being a franchise caliber QB, but could also see him being comparable to Trevor Siemian. The guys that are elite, however, all are quick processors and have accuracy, touch, and anticipation. I think to an extent this can be compensated for with excellent talent (Cam Newton) but the elites just have a feel that I really don’t think is coachable. How you identify that, I haven no idea. Fromm to me seems to have it, so does Tua (but where Tua is projected to be drafted compared to Fromm is what scares me). Herbert, Eason, the guy getting hyped out of Utah State, they’re your physical gift guys. Burrows is intriguing though, I watched some of the game vs Texas and he made some ridiculous plays out of intuition.
  13. 2020 College Prospects

    I fully get that with Fromm. He’s a risk because of his lack of any good physical trait. However, he seems like a guy that just gets it. He’s tough, accurate, makes throws that few college QBs do in terms of anticipation and understanding where the ball needs to be placed. He has exceptional touch, as well as being ultra competitive. I doubt Elway would ever draft him. He’s the opposite of what Elway does, but man I think there is something to be said about “getting it” is the only way I can think of phrasing it. Aside from athleticism, I don’t think there is much separating Tua from Fromm and currently Tua seems to be a lock for the top 5.
  14. 2020 College Prospects

    ^^^ To go with that Thomas and Wirfs are really intriguing to me, though I don’t know that Wirfs can play LT. He seems Scherff-ish to me. Great athlete but more of a RT/OG, where he could be elite.
  15. 2020 College Prospects

    This class seems deep along the trenches, which is what I’ll be paying attention to. Bolles is going to have to show tremendous growth to stick around, IMO. Build up the OL/DL, look for an athletic ILB, give Lock a shot to prove whether he can be the answer, if he isn’t get aggressive in 2021 for a franchise QB. On a side note, if Fromm is there in the 2nd this year I wouldn’t be opposed to that either.
