  1. Random Thoughts

    That’s crazy. My wife’s family has a place in Granby, not far from winter park and our dog minds really well off leash, anyway it wasn’t that dramatic, but we lost her on a trail the first time we went up there for a few hours. Our dog was 4 years old at the time and not 5 months (which probably made your pup even more disoriented) but I think the thickness of the trees and unfamiliar terriotry can easily throw them for a loop. Glad you were able to get her back.

    I know you love OL play, but I think you’re being overly critical here.

    Don’t know that anyone is into college wrestling, but most of these weights are pretty competitive. However, the heavyweight bracket is maybe the worst weight class I’ve seen in my life. It’s a tough class to get good wrestlers, but 99% of the time these guys are competing for 5th and 6th place.

    May have been wrong that he didn’t play RG at all, but Leary has been solid or better when healthy.
  6. Let the Offseason Begin

    Again, you can’t project injuries. When he was healthy year 1 he was a top 8 OG according to PFF. And he wasn’t the RG he was the LG.
  7. Let the Offseason Begin

    I don’t know, it wasn’t great by any means. Year 1 though IIRC, Leary was worth it. You also can never project injuries and he’s been banged up and suffered a season ender in October this year. A part of me is fine not being able to cut him this year and rolling that dead money over into next.
  8. Let the Offseason Begin

    Reportedly he had an injury clause in his contract that made him pretty much impossible to cut. Achilles injuries aren’t what they used to be either, he probably doesn’t end up on the physically unable to perform list either and there is actually a pretty good chance he could be the starting LG in week 1.
  9. Let the Offseason Begin

    Agreed. He’s going to have his work cut out for him to make the team. Davis and Jewell aren’t going anywhere and I think there is a good chance Denver goes ILB at 1.10. There is also Joe Jones (arguably the teams best special teams player) Bierria who the team drafted last year and Alexander Johnson.
  10. Trading the 10th Pick

    I get the logic and think it can be a valuable move, if done correctly. Maybe Denver did have a deal where they could’ve moved back to #8, but I don’t recall it. Last year the reported deal in place had Chubb not been there at #5 was with Buffalo for #12, #22, and #53. Obviously a heck of a haul. With hindsight being 20/20 we can look back at all kinds of scenarios and see how valuable that trade could’ve been, but in the moment and in actuality it can go terribly wrong if you’re not hitting on those picks. Further, just my opinion, I don’t think Elway would’ve taken James at #12, he’s always been a BPA at a position of need guy and safety didn’t seem to be a concern, even with the trade back I think it would’ve resulted in a pretty similar draft to what actually happened, as again, Elway doesn’t draft on pure BPA. I could’ve seen. #12: Marcus Davenport #22: Sutton/Ridley/Moore (reportedly Denver had Sutton as the best or 2nd best WR on their board and with a 1st round grade) #40: Kerryon Johnson/Donte Jackson #53: Donte Jackson/Royce Freeman

    Yeah, it’s a passing league now. Not that these guys aren’t good, but it’s just a different game. It’s just personal preference and Owens did some things better than Moss, but I think Moss is the best WR I’ve ever seen. I was a bit young when Jerry Rice was doing his thing. ‘97 was when I really remember football and I was 9, so I missed the dominant Rice years. Moss was just an absolute freak at the position. 6’4” with 4.2 speed. Devastating as a vertical threat and while not ridiculously shifty if there was any type of seam on a slant or short route he was gone.
  12. Trading the 10th Pick

    I personally think Denver needs to sit tight at 10 and go BPA. I’d be fine with White or Bush and think 1 of them will be there. If not it wouldn’t hurt to have a deal in place (like last year) where Denver could move back. However, I also wouldn’t be opposed to taking Andre Dillard at #10, he has everything you look for in a LT and kicking Bolles inside to OG (where I think he has all pro potential) and really solidifying the OL for next 2-3 years. I also wouldn’t be opposed to Hockenson, though I think that’s a longer shot now that Denver brought Heuereman (or however the hell you spell it, I’ll never get it right) back. IMO, Denver will have an all pro caliber player at #10 in this draft, I don’t really see a need to get cute with it. Moving back to #15 and beyond is getting into the mix of guys where I don’t see much difference from #15 to #50. I guess the argument could be made that we could get 2 of them instead of 1, but just my preference that I’d rather have the elite player.
  13. 2019 NFL QB Draft Prospects

    I like Stidham as well. Biggest concern for me with him is this past year on a poor Auburn team he started seeing ghosts and looked really poor when facing pressure and in the NFL, even good OLs require a QB to be tough in the pocket. Kyle Shanahan raves about Stidham at the Senior Bowl as well (Shanahan was his coach) and Scangerello basically modeled his entire offense and career by following Shanahan, so I am sure he was also impressed. I also think Stidham is a great fit in the WCO he’s athletic and while not an elite arm, can make all the throws.
  14. Let the Offseason Begin

    Love the signing. Callahan while unknown by most is arguably the best nickel CB in the entire league. There are questions about if he can play on the outside, but it’s easily worth the gamble. He also knows Fangio’s system and verbiage. I feel far more comfortable with Denver’s DBs after this signing.
  15. Let the Offseason Begin

    Actually just saw it was true. Big time signing. That locks in our CBS for this year. Callahan even if only a nickel CB is elite. Didn’t think there was a chance after the Jackson signing. Hell of a move by Elway and allows them to use Jackson in a hybrid role.
