  1. Let the Offseason Begin

    With reports of the Broncos and Peko parting ways, Ben Allbright has linked us to Jonathan Hankins. Would get us a lot younger at that position, but not sure of Hankins productivity? Was cut from Indi like 1 year into a 3 year deal.
  2. Random Thoughts

    I used it to help remove some (unwanted) paint from my car - was turning around and accidentally scraped the side of my garage and it left a noticeable paint swap probably about 6 inches across and 3 inches tall. WD40, scrub with magic eraser, repeat a few times, then wash the entire area with soapy water, then apply a little bit of wax. Only left me with a minor unnoticeable scratch. That was my first purchase of WD40, and only use of it. Said car has just been paid off completely as of last week, so instead of a car payment in March I would like to make a semi-reckless purchase that will include my quality of life. Any suggestions?
  3. Draft Prospects

    I just found out that Devin White has an affinity for horses. I am now 110% on board with him at pick 10, it is just too perfect.
  4. Let the Offseason Begin

    Per Adam Schefter, Brandon Marshall will be a free agent on March 13. Looks like we save $5m on this move, as we will have $4m dead cap (but obviously won't be paying his $9m salary. Messing around on Spotrac a bit, we have $16m cap space prior to this move. Keenum and Marshall releases would put us at $32m. Ron Leary on top of that gets us to $40m. League average is about $37m right now.
  5. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    Quick mock: Rounds 1-6 - BPA Round 7 - Future HoF QB Let me know what you think!
  6. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    So we give up a 4th round pick (rumored) and $7.5m 2019 cap for - Flacco over Keenum in 2019 and an option to keep Flacco at $20.25m in 2020 if we do not land our QB at 1.10. The more I think about it, the less I hate it. The more I read about it ,the more upset I get. It doesn't help that, growing up in the Baltimore area, I have talked an extreme amount of trash about Joe Flacco over the years. But I still think the media is making this out to be a much bigger deal than it is, when you lay it out in it's simplest terms (above) it isn't that much. Sure, I'm upset about the 4th rounder. I wish it was a 5th. But I really think that the 2020 $20.25m option gives us a safety net that was not on the roster previously. It removes us from the Nick Foles discussion, which would have had us tied up with guaranteed money for a few more years. Maybe Elway thinks Trevor Lawrence will grow another inch before he enters the draft so he can draft him? I hate that Flacco is another tall QB that will go down as a failed Elway experiment (again, despite the low cost it will be seen as a gigantic gamble because buzzwords). Such a lateral move, was it worth it? PS - where were you when you found out? I was without cell service kinda in the middle of nowhere. Started to get antsy, needed something to refresh - facebook, twitter, espn whatever. Pull out my work phone which had a little bit of a signal and decide to go to espn.com, where I see in gigantic letters "Breaking News: Flacco traded to Broncos". Then I tried to not have a panic attack for the next 20 minutes as we drove back into civilization.

    I am not sold on either Allen / Rosen (never liked either). Standing firm on the Chubb + #10 this year.
  8. Draft Prospects

    True, just saw an article after I had posted that saying as much. I should have noted that all of those projections came directly from the broncoswire articles for each guy.
  9. Draft Prospects

    I don't mean to turn this thread into a series of broncoswire posts, but they are pumping out these articles about who the Broncos met with at the Senior Bowl. And I think this thread is a good opportunity for us to focus on non-1st round prospects whom the Broncos have been linked to. https://broncoswire.usatoday.com/2019/02/08/jaylen-smith-2019-nfl-draft-denver-broncos-meeting-senior-bowl/ Jaylen Smith - Louisville, WR 3rd to 5th rounder at 6ft 4 210 lbs. Other players who the Broncoswire have said we have met with: KeeSean Johnson - Fresno State, WR - 5th rounder proj. Trevon Wesco - West Virginia, TE/FB - late round / UDFA Sutton Smith - Northern Illinois, OLB - 3rd-4th rounder proj. Andre Dillard - Washington State, OT - 2nd round proj. Corey Ballentine - Washburn, CB (6ft) - 4th-5th rounder proj. Dalton Risner - Kansas State, OT - 3rd-5th rounder proj. - 3x captain Gerri Green - Mississippi State, OLB - late round / UDFA proj. - captain as a senior I think those are all the players the broncoswire has linked us to, via meetings at the Senior Bowl / Shrine Game.
  10. Draft Prospects

    https://broncoswire.usatoday.com/2019/02/08/iman-marshall-2019-nfl-draft-met-with-denver-broncos-at-senior-bowl/ Iman Marshall, USC Corner. Per the article, projected 3rd-4th rounder who excels at dropping back into zone coverage. Broncos met with him at the Senior Bowl.
  11. Which Non-QB would you draft at 10?

    Devin White and Jonah Williams look to be the top at their respective positions, which worries me that they might be gone before 10. What is weird to me, is that between Greedy Williams, Byron Murphy, and DeAndre Baker, there is no consensus best player here. I have seen mocks with them from anywhere from pick 5 to pick 30 for each one. Do any of them really stand out over the others? This kinda sours me on drafting a CB at 10, mainly fueled by my ignorance of the guys. What about a guy that has been falling down draft boards, Ed Oliver? OL - Williams gone, Taylor / Ford available DL - Bosa, Allen, Williams, Gary, Ferrell gone, Oliver / Simmons available. LB - White gone, Bush available CB - Williams, Murphy, Baker available This is tough. I assume in this scenario that Haskins/Lock are also gone, so Jones / Murray are available. Without much separation between the above underlined prospects (and assuming we do not take a QB), I think trading down would be ideal. Let Washington come up and grab Murray or something. Grab Bush or a CB at 15? Trading down is always a pipe dream though.
  12. Pat Bowlen & Champ Bailey elected to HoF

    As someone whose first Broncos memories were the Elway Super Bowl years, I really appreciate when you reach back into the vault and talk about the unsung heroes of yesteryear. You should start a thread where you just go off each week or so and highlight either a player, game, year, unit whatever is on your mind.
  13. Pat Bowlen & Champ Bailey elected to HoF

    If anything isn't the NFL biased against the Patriots? Deflategate was a joke, they've put up with more crap from the NFL than any other franchise.
  14. 2019 NFL QB Draft Prospects

    Is this some sort of reverse psychology bit? Because I was starting to come around on Lock now I don't know what to think.
  15. 2019 NFL QB Draft Prospects

    We don't like to talk about alternative plans.
