  1. Random Thoughts

    Chiefs are exciting right now. I am not rooting for them, by any means, but I do want to see a great game and I don't really care who wins (so I am not actively rooting against them). I realize this way of thinking will be in the past soon, as Mahomes will be there for a while and I will absolutely loathe them for years to come.
  2. Yeah but i wanna cherry pick my hypothetical situation to where we would have won one or two more of those games AND have Lock starting! Good point though, that isn't a reality that would've happened.
  3. It hurts to think about how meaningful this game would be had we not lost even just ONE of the Bears, Jaguars, Colts games.
  4. 2020 College Prospects

    I think our team has enough holes where we really just let the board fall to us, and we can truly pick BPA. Positions we definitely won't take Rd 1 are basically QB, RB, TE, and maybe S? I remember some of the love for Munchak came from the fact that he was able to take non blue chip prospects and turn them into solid starters - so I think that helps me wait off on OL until 2nd/3rd/whenever for that obvious position of need. I think AAA nailed it when he referenced the 6 positions we need to target with our first couple of rounds. Hope the board is friendly, move up if we have to, and trust our evaluation of talent ('18 and '19 were good - let's hope they continue that trend). PS - I am automatically on board with drafting any prospect with the last name Wilson, as that is my dogs name and will likely become one of my favorite players because of that. Although Mack Wilson coming off the board prior to our 2nd rounders last year worked pretty well...

    I understand the side he is taking, but he is taking it to the extreme. If you think a dude is a HoF QB, you take him at 1.1 no questions asked. We were able to get a guy who our front office obviously liked, but didn't think was a no doubt pick. That is what it is, and it is totally fine.
  6. Feels good right now, guys. Lately it has almost felt like a chore to watch some games, but yesterday I was downright excited for the game. It has been a while since we've been able to feel this way, and I feel hopeful that Lock and the other young guys can continue to develop into a great core of the franchise. I want to win the final 3 games of the year. Two weeks ago I would have said the exact opposite. Draft position be damned, this is fun. Elway4president. Jk...unless?
  7. Broncos place DE Derek Wolfe on IR

    Greetings, fellow hokie
  8. Team Building the FUTURE is now!

    In draft order things that I am seeing recently, we are the top pick for the 3-8 teams. Tiebreakers holding will probably be a huge factor for us. 1. Head to Head (Lions game Week 16) 2. Common Opponents (our wins vs. LAC, TEN, CLE)

    He has always sneaky had a pretty legit receiving group. I too don't get the narrative that he "does it all by himself"
  10. Team Building the FUTURE is now!

    Lots of top 10 dynamic to be decided - so much hype over a lot of QBs right now that a hypothetical number 9 pick could have great value as 1) trading back to a team wishing to acquire a QB or 2) having a top MLB/OT fall to us at 9 because of said demand for QBs.
  11. Training Camp Notes & Observations

    I am optimistic on Bolles too, but Pro Bowl voting is whack - I feel like non-skill position players just get in based on reputation alone, so it might take two great seasons from Bolles to reach it.

    Ahh man, the place i watched SB50 at burned to the ground yesterday. Bad omen for this upcoming season, yikes!
  13. Let the Offseason Begin

    Unfortunate situation for the Bucs and McCoy I feel like. Hate to see these franchise players leave on the back end of their career like this. I wish there was some sort of salary cap benefit to rostering players for a certain number of years. Haven't thought about it beyond that initial idea, so no idea if that makes sense at all - I just wish we saw more players finish their careers with one team which is not the norm these days.
  14. UDFA tracker

    Stats are misleading, especially PFF's relatively made up stats...but here are some interesting points regarding UDFA's from @PFF_Broncos Brian Wallace - good on 1st down, among 42 eligible RT, his 77.5 pass block grade was 7th (three hits and one hurry on 127 snaps). However he was 40th among 69 (nice) eligible RT for the entire season. Joe Dineen Jr - 59 run stops this year, highest in the Big-12 (86.1 overall grade, best among draft eligible Big 12 LB). Led 2017 with 53 stops for a win (not sure what that means). He was highest graded LB after 5 weeks of the 2018 season. Ahman Gooden - 25% pressure rate since 2017 (highest rate among draft eligible edge defenders, Bosa at 20.7%). Again, these are cherry picked "stats" but at least they are encouraging!

  15. I was hoping we landed Wilson, got upset that the Browns took him right before us. Not even sure he was on our radar though. Also it's important that we did get a 6th back in the trade so its 1 year of Watson + 4 year min-wage flier on a guy vs. 4 year min-wage flier on a possibly slightly better guy. I don't like the trade either, but lets not act like the sky is falling because we moved back 60 spots.
