  1. When VJ gets fired

    https://audioboom.com/posts/7119833-afternoon-drive-les-shapiro-reports-on-the-mike-shanahan-joe-ellis-john-elway-triangle Link to Les Shapiro's report on the Shanahan/Elway/Ellis dynamics. Les kind of sidesteps some of the Elway/Shanahan issues but considering those two have made amends in the past year, it isn't really relevant information. For those who don't know, Les is good friends with Mike Shanahan and you can bet almost anything he knows is coming from Mike himself.

    The bigger story here is the Elway/Ellis dynamic.
  3. When VJ gets fired

    Seems to be an Elway vs. Ellis public battle brewing. As critical as I've been of Elway's decision making since the Super Bowl win, Ellis has been a toxic presence for years. The fixation on McDaniels, the struggle to find sponsors, the nature of this looming ownership problem...it makes me sick that this guy is running the show basically unchecked. The more we hear about the trust and the Bowler family dynamics, the worse Ellis looks. Ellis can stay in power as long as he wants until he arbitrarily decides Brittany is ready to take over.

    The big issue I would have with Shanahan is the time away from the game. Most of his problems were as a GM, he was always a good game day coach and a lot of his teams later in his tenure overachieved relative to their talent level.

    I'm not sure Lamar will ever be a good QB. I hope he will be, but as a passer he definitely has a long way to go. But replacing that big stiff Joe Flacco for a guy with Lamar's wheels is just good for the league. If you're not going to have a great QB, at least have an entertaining one.

    I think fans find it tough to react in real time to improvement. People shape their analysis around their first impressions and will tend to not waver too much from those impressions. That seems to be the case with Gotsis, who was viewed as a bust, then a good but one-dimensional run stopper, now showing a complete skillset. He just keeps getting better and better, no need to put a ceiling on him yet.

    Gotsis at the end of the 2nd is solid and the exciting part is he keeps getting better and better. Good candidate for an extension soon. The truly bad pick was Walker. He will be out of the league by 2020.
  8. Denver Broncos @ San Francisco 49ers GDT

    Didn't see a live reaction to VJ's challenge here but that was so, so bad. He had that close view in real time, had no doubt he was right and wasted a timeout instead of relying on his brain trust. Your coach needs to be calm, collected and rational in that situation (for all intents and purposes, a "playoff" game for Denver) and his pride took over. That was a big crunch time failure for a head coach on the hot seat.

    I have no problem with the formula VJ was tied to. This team doesn't have a QB and has key pieces injured, however they could win they had to stick to that plan. I have no problem with letting Musgrave go either. Keenum held the ball, missed wide open guys and threw short of the sticks all game long. It was a joke.
  10. Denver Broncos @ San Francisco 49ers GDT

    I can't take any more Keenum. He is a joke and has only regressed week by week. I honestly think Siemian was a better starter who ended up just melting down behind a crumbling offensive line. Just the thought of Keenum being back next year is sickening. What he did today was probably the most depressing display of quarterbacking I can remember seeing. Not the worst, but the most depressing. We spotted them 20 points and with even average QB play in the second half, probably win the game. A lot of this game falls on the coaching staff, but this was the "Keenum game" for me. He should never have a starting gig in the NFL again.
  11. Denver Broncos @ San Francisco 49ers GDT

    Too bad, team played a great second half and had so many chances to get the lead.
  12. Denver Broncos @ San Francisco 49ers GDT

    Team played a great second half. Keenum blew it.
  13. Denver Broncos @ San Francisco 49ers GDT

    Not a bad play if you have a 5th down to work with, though.
  14. Denver Broncos @ San Francisco 49ers GDT

    Mostly been a ghost since he got paid. Most experienced DB out there now though.
