    To go further, this would’ve been an interesting year to use high picks in the supplemental draft if a bunch of players declared. The 2021 draft could be even more of a mystery than this years.

    Oh I don’t expect a college season. A buddy of mine coaches at the FCS level and doesn’t see anyway it happens in the fall. Which is why I feel bad there wasn’t a supplemental draft, even if some accommodations were made to where athletes could return to school if they weren’t selected or selected as high as they thought they might be.

    I have no idea how supplemental draft picks get paid. For example if the team that selects you uses a 2nd round pick to do so, would the player receive like an average 2nd round pick contract? Anyway. I found it somewhat surprising the NFL chose not to go forward with the supplemental draft. With the NCAA season (and NFL season for that matter) up in the air, there were some college players that could’ve benefited from this.
  4. Kareem Jackson tests positive for Corona

    I am pretty sure Von said he still wasn’t 100% a month after testing negative. So that’s a good point as well.
  5. Kareem Jackson tests positive for Corona

    I don’t know all the science behind it, but don’t disagree. Will add though that not all coaches fit that profile and many probably are in a higher risk category. I guess if the NFL is able to test players a couple times a week and only require players that test positive to isolate until negative, it’s possible. I don’t know how much that would cost to test that frequently, but the NFL is probably capable of pulling it off. However, if every time a player tests positive requires a 2 week shutdown (which is what college programs are currently doing) we will never get through the season.
  6. Kareem Jackson tests positive for Corona

    As this continues and we see these college programs getting overwhelmed with covid returning to campus, I hate to be pessimistic, but I don’t see how there is an NFL season. Only real possibility I can think of is if teams are quarantined from July until the teams season ends and I don’t see that happening.

    Absolutely insane. I know there are people with strong stances on both sides (owners/players), but at the end of the day both sides are at fault here. Unbelievable.
  8. Bronco Mount Rushmore

    Rod Smith is another name not getting any recognition. Ultimate professional and person who still is connected with the team. Spent his entire career as a Bronco. Won 2 SBs and holds every major receiving record in franchise history. I don’t know that I’d have him in my top 4, but he deserves to be part of the conversation.

    Definitely. But the UFC is slowly turning into 2 guys standing in the octagon throwing punches until there is a KO/TKO. The ground game and technicality of the sport has lost its draw. Which makes total sense as it’s far more exciting for most fans to watch than a ground and pound type of fight. The big money is in throwing punches and getting knockouts. In that sense none of them come close to a respectable boxer, as we saw when McGregor fought Mayweather. Now don’t get me wrong, I like UFC far more than I ever did boxing. But these standing only slugfests trying to see who has the stronger chin, while exciting, is also getting old as it doesn’t take into account the full spectrum of mixed martial arts. I’d much rather watch GGG and Canelo who are two experts at their craft than some of these UFC fights with guys just standing toe to toe going after each other street fight style. In all honesty I’ve seen a couple drunken street fights in college that were better than this....only difference is it didn’t go on for 20-25 minutes because they didn’t have the stamina. I find that to be the most impressive part is these guys are in good enough shape to do that at a hectic pace for 4-5 rounds.

    For sure. He was like a coiled spring. His punches were so devastating and he could do it without any sort of extension. I like the UFC, but not one of those guys would stand a chance against a respectable boxer. UFC guys step in the ring and it’s a fist fight (which is more exciting) not a skilled attack.
  11. 2020 Surprise

    I’m not comparing him to anyone. I don’t think he’s a bad guy or anything or that his actions compare to Mayfield’s. I just don’t see any positive to it. As you said it’s him celebrating, but it’s excessive enough that it’s on social media with meme’s made of it. I recall there being a segment about his Buzz Lightyear celebration. Anyway, I don’t think it’s malicious or taunting or anything, but I also don’t think it motivates his team or anything like that either. In all honesty it’s him being a goofball. I’m not against it, but do it in the locker room or practice. As I said I can already see how this plays out. Him acting goofy on the sideline with a lead. Going out and playing poorly and losing the game. ESPN is showing it, local news is on it. Lock, his teammates, and coaches having to answer for it (which may not be positive if some of them don’t like it) and then we’ll see Broncos fans saying he needs to mature. Simple solution....stop doing it in front of the world because it’s not something positively impacting your team on gamedays.
  12. 2020 Surprise

    And it probably will happen. I can see it now. Denver’s up a couple scores. He does something weird on the sideline or after a big play. Throws a couple INTs and Denver ends up losing. ESPN will be showing. Denver media will be talking about it. Posters in this forum will be saying he needs to mature....... Lock doesn’t need to do any of that to be a good QB or leader or whatever one wants to call it. IMO it’d just be better to completely avoid it blowing up into a potential distraction and something he has to answer for. Say something funny on the sideline to keep it light or show enthusiasm....no reason to do something that’s going to draw bunch of attention.
  13. 2020 Surprise

    No I get it, it’s just not for me. Everyone has their own preferences and what not. All his dancing and buzz light year stuff annoys the hell out of me haha and I 100% guarantee there are players who think the exact same on the team. It doesn’t matter though because he’s competitive and tough. I think it was the Texans game where he took a nasty shot and had a bloody nose and just kept coming. That’s what is impressive to me. The dancing stuff is all fine and dandy until it isn’t. Until the team goes on a losing streak and he continues to do it. Or is on the sideline doing it and then Denver blows a lead. No one cared last year because the team finished well. And I’m not saying I don’t like Drew. I just don’t care for all that stuff.
  14. 2020 Surprise

    If Lock were on any other team I wouldn’t be able to stand him. Nor as a teammate of his would he be someone I’d gravitate toward, but that’s just me. He’s a class clown type and that’s always annoyed me. He is competitive though, which is all that matters.
  15. 2020 Broncos Forum NFL Draft Thread

    Yeah. I had actually seen Muti awhile back. I read something about Quinton Nelson and Muti being the only OL’s that you could watch an actual highlight tape of them rolling people. At one time he was thought of as a future 1st round pick. Anyway, he looked far different when able to play this year. Hopefully he’s able to get fully healthy and there’s a chance he can return to the form he had early in his career. What a coup that would be with a 6th round pick.
