  1. The direction of the Broncos in the near future.

    I'd be looking to deal Von if I were them. Kick start the rebuild this year while Von still has good value at 29. Another year or two and his value drops. I'd probably look to gut the roster of any valuable players in the 28-31 range for picks, draft OL or pass rusher this year or trade down. Suck with Flacco and look for a QB come 2020 and rebuild from there.

    Take it for what it's worth but PFF graded Allen better at pass rushing this season compared to Bosa in 2017 when he played a full season. Both were crazy good but Allen was 94 this year Bosa was 92 in 2017. I think Allen's upside is DPOY special. I don't get that from Bosa. I see his brother 10-12 sacks solid against the run which don't get me wrong is a really good player.
  3. They had to be this year. MIN twitter took a shot at the Jets recently too for Barr going back and busting them for signing Siemian/Compton. Seen quite a few shots from MIN fans recently about the Jets must be just a coincidence I suppose.

    Since he entered the league he has given up more pressures than almost every other C. Solid rookie season maybe but the guy clearly isn't a good player and we'd all likely be begging for Mac to upgrade. Just because the trade down didn't work doesn't really mean drafting Elflien was any better.
  5. 2019 prospects and outlook

    Doesn't mean our GM agrees with me though. It's really close. I think Bosa is a bit safer with Allen if he ever reaches his potential could be a little better. However he may not and could end up not being as good as Bosa. I would take the risk though because the ceiling is Mack/Von for Allen. Bosa seems like a slightly lesser version of his brother which is still a 10+ sack guy but Allen could be that 15+ guy if he puts it all together.

    I actually think Allen is better. My board is Quinnen, Allen, Bosa

    And that's how you draft the lesser player because you reached for need. You also pounded the table for Elflien because of need who turned out to be one of the worst centers in the league. He wouldn't start over Harrison on this team and we are desperate for a C. You need to stick to BPA just as you need to go get the guy you love (i.e Tunsil or Kamara). If you know the guy is going to be great don't wait go get them. Mac thought Leo was going to be great and picked him over the player of need Beasley which turned out to be the right choice.

    I see the point but what I was saying is the position isn't as set as you think. Q is a nose in this defense we only have a 33 year old NT on the roster. The position is far from set. Williams will use 3 DL and those 3 all fit well together Anderson (5-tech), Q (1-tech), and Leo (5-tech). Q isn't a traditional NT that you take off the field on passing downs.

    Some people were pounding the table for a guy like Fowler when he graded similar to guys like Copeland and Jenkins who could be our starting OLB's in base still. I prefer Allen but I'm not freaking out if we draft Q and resign Cope. If it leads to Leo boosting his production to 10 sacks and adding another 10 sack guy in Q then we should be able to generate enough pressure with the front of Copeland, Anderson, Q, Leo, Jenkins
  10. 2019 prospects and outlook

    I see Q as a NT in this scheme which is why he does make sense. Gregg wants his DL to 1-gap and penetrate. Anderson, Q, Leo would be the DL. McClendon is 33 on a 1 year deal and Shepard is just depth behind Anderson/Leo. Not saying that's what I want but Q is a fit and fills a need as well without taking snaps from Anderson/Leo. Could easily see those 3 on the DL with Mosley (MIKE), WIlliamson (SAM) and Lee (WILL) being the nickel defense with WIlliams blitzing from all over the place with the LB core, Poole from the slot or Adams from safety. Don't get me wrong I would love to have Allen but Q is the best player in this draft. He is a 10+ sack guy with elite run defense. You can build a defense around him.
  11. Since when did MIN fans start targeting the Jets? Is there some rivalry I missed? Is it because of Barr or us being used by Cousins to up the price on that overpaid QB they have.
  12. I would say the opposite. I prefer more 2 TE sets assuming you can get two versatile TE's who can block and catch.
  13. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    Honestly with all the target moves we've made this offseason it seems like if we are signing a big name FA he's going to be in the 25-27 range not the 29-30 age range.
  14. 2019 prospects and outlook

    While I agree he's not Donald he's also about 20 pounds heavier so clearly won't be the same athletically. I don't see him ever being a 20 sack guy but I see no reason he can't be a force inside and give you 10-12 sacks while being an elite run defender. If Leo ever steps it up sack wise having two interior guys that can get you 10+ sacks is not a bad thing to have.

    Only about 15M to spend though. We need 10M for draft and about 10M for in season moves with a little left for flexibility moving forward.
