  1. What Could Have Been?

    Greg Cook: The Bengals drafted the ex-Cincinnati Bearcat QB in round 1 of the 1969 draft. He was doing really well before suffering an injury against the Chiefs. He played through it the rest of the year, but was never able to play after that (he tore his rotator cuff, and back then, you were screwed if you did that). Joe Roth: A star QB at Cal that died of Melanoma in February of 1977.

    I thought Mr. B was still well when Ellis hired the child.
  3. Broncos Sign QB Case Keenum

    Good article from USA Today: http://ftw.usatoday.com/2018/03/nfl-case-keenum-broncos-contract-trevor-siemian-john-elway I agree. I wouldn't have made this signing. I would have rather re-signed Brock Osweiler for one year before making a run at Rosen or Mayfield.
  4. The dumb argument regarding Brady vs Montana

    I don't know. The 49ers had an owner in Eddie D who would pay any price (in the 80's, he was paying his players illegal bonuses). They cheated the cap in the 90's pretty badly, and if there was a cap in the 80's, they would have done the same thing. Walsh really didn't invent the short passing game (what is now called the WCO): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LeIYdifUf3M In this link, Tarkenton said that the short passing game (now called the WCO) was started in New York in 1967. Also, Bud Grant said that he was running the short passing offense with Tarkenton and Foreman in the 70's, and that Walsh got credit for inventing it because he knew the value of PR.

    I thought so. When they said that he was coming in for a physical, I knew that he was one step away from signing. He will be an outside starter when healthy, and could be a steal like JMG5 says.
  6. Broncos QB Discussion Thread

    Hope so. I want Josh Rosen. I don't like this signing if they expect Case to be the long-term answer. This was probably influenced by Kubiak, who coached Keenum five years ago with the Texans.
  7. As a Bronco fan, I know a little something about Gaston Green. He did have one 1,000 yard season for Denver (1991), but he was a one-hit wonder. The Rams should have drafted WR Anthony Miller and RB Thurman Thomas in Round 1 instead of Green and WR Aaron Cox. I know that Thermal had injury concerns, but they could have worked him in slowly with Greg Bell and Charles White.
  8. Here's a good link on Packer draft QB mess-ups: http://www.packers.com/news-and-events/article-cliffs-notes/article-1/Packers-blew-No-1-overall-pick-on-a-QB/e34a6489-c5c1-40b4-a296-2fa88022a654 In the case of Rich Campbell, GB West Coast scout Lloyd Eaton told Bob Harlan (then assistant to the team president) and said that he can't play. I think that Harlan said that he should have told them that, and Eaton said something about how they don't listen to him.
  9. 1. A Few FA Notes * Kirk Cousins signs with the Vikings (Bridgewater stays as backup). * A.J. McCarron signs with the Jets. * Case Keenum signs with the Broncos. * Sam Bradford signs with the Cardinals. * Muhammad Wilkerson signs with Green Bay. * Aqib Talib is cut by Denver. He then returns to the Pats. * Malcolm Butler signs with the Eagles. * The Cardinals sign Patrick Robinson. * The 49ers sign CB Trumaine Johnson. * C.J. Anderson is signed by GB after the Broncos cut him (Pack sound like they are all-in this year). * Broncos sign G Josh Sitton and trade a third-round pick (along with a 2019 second-rounder) for Bills OT Cordy Glenn. 2.

  10. Quinn was stunned when he was drafted in Round 2. He didn't think that he would be drafted until late in the draft. That says it all about how dumb McDiapers was. As bad as that pick was (along with the Alphonso Smith pick that year), I have a Bronco pick that's worse: Tommy Maddox in Round 1 of the 1992 draft. The Broncos had just lost in the AFC Championship, and they needed more offense. Elway even asked for more help in the offseason. However, Dan Reeves ignores him, and takes a QB. There was no excuse for that. Carl Pickens should have been the pick. Normally, I don't believe that owners should meddle, but Bowlen should have been all over this. If there were rumors that Reeves was looking at Maddox before that draft, Pat should have had words for Dan. And, on draft day, Bowlen should have been in the war room to make sure that the Broncos took Pickens.
  11. Top 30 defenses of the last 30 years

    Not surprising in the least. I especially remember the run defense falling apart in their last two games in 1991. If they would have won one of those, they make the playoffs.
  12. Broncos rumors

    Yeah. Or Deone Bucannon of the Cardinals (who was a S at Wash. State).
  13. Les Shapiro and Mike Pritchard talked about McDaniels on the Dec. 30, 2014 edition of The Sports Show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hpt_-d9PE3o Les had some interesting things to share. Here's one: McDaniels tried to get Zanders fired almost immediately.
  14. Your picks for next years Hall of Fame?

    Ed Reed Champ Bailey Tony Gonzalez Steve Hutchinson Alan Faneca Seniors: Randy Gradishar (it's time, especially if they put Urlacher in. That's sad that he got in before Randy)
  15. How does this SB effect Tom Brady's status of all time?

    I didn't say Hoyer would play better. I just said that the Pats didn't get really hot in that game until they started going to Gronk.
