  1. Geez you're sooooo old!
  2. After the 2012 AFC Divisional game Flacco is dead to me... Flacco who? We want Drew! In all honesty, if Flacco doesn't look like an NFL starting QB and he's hurting the team he gets the boot. If he doesn't lose games for us then keep him in at least this year.
  3. Broncos nearing deal w/ CB Chris Harris Jr. (One-year deal)

    Now, let's talk about an apology for that hideous image under your name
  4. Mini-Camp Notes

    Wow, after round 4 is terrible vs UDFA (>5+6+7). If only we hit better in most of the recent drafts we might be over .500. Ugh.
  5. Are you smarter than our front office v.2019

    It's easier to give a GM flack for a bad draft when it feels bad from the start. If this draft turns out to be a meh we'll spin it as it couldn't have been any better that it was. FWIW, it sure would be nice to have a franchise QB...I like the Haskins/CB route as Broncofan presented.
  6. Random Thoughts

    While I''m with you his terrible persuasion sales pitch, I'm not sold on the argument about picking your guy @#6 vs #17. Elway obviously wanted Lock, a QBOTF, and with that argument should have taken him at #10...but he didn't. He got value from ALL his early round picks, unlike Gettleman. It's like saying, we had a guy pegged as a 5th rounder but we went ahead a took him with the #1 overall pick because you never know what can happen in a draft.
  7. There was so much b!tch!ng going on I didn't want to miss out (Sarcasm spoiler)
  8. Looking at these late round 1 trades...we got fleeced...again.
  9. 2019 NFL QB Draft Prospects

    The number of coaches we've gone through tells me he needs to go. Maybe he can hit gold with Scangalello and this years draft. It'll take a miracle...
  10. 2019 Schedule

    I honestly can't even tell if we're "re-building" anymore. The franchise is schizophrenic.
  11. Let the Offseason Begin

    If tanking was the goal, then Keenum was the solution.
  12. Let the Offseason Begin

    Apparently you're carrying the target today... There's a good read on how the Pats let a bunch of players go to sign high contracts with other teams and it's okay because they have a great history of developing (cheaper) replacements. Our (past 3-4 year) organizational history is lacking in draft, development, and free agency...which is why we kinda suck. That being said, I think we're all generally positive about some coaching additions but overall waiting to see it with our own eyes mentality - how does it transpire to the field of play. If the ship reverses course then people will move on and we can say Elway had some bad luck as a GM but he dug his way out and that's good. On the other hand, if the next 2 season are repeats of the same crap, then there's no coming back, everyone will riot and big changes are in store.
  13. Josh Rosen

    I'd trade him straight up for Keenum
  14. Love Chubb but...

    Seems like the old saying, "A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush" applies here.
  15. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    Is that the full picture? https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/heres-the-broncos-reported-plan-for-case-keenum-after-pulling-off-surprising-trade-for-joe-flacco/ "If the Broncos end up releasing Keenum, it will get even more expensive. Not only will they take a $10 million dead cap hit, but they'll have to pay Keenum $7 million in cash for the 2019 season. Keenum's two-year deal included $25 million in guaranteed money, with the team guaranteeing $7 million of his 2019 base salary. Basically, if Keenum gets cut, he'll have made $25 million for his one season in Denver, which is fantastic money for a quarterback who led his team to a 6-10 record in 2018." Why on earth would we cut him? Keep him until he becomes a roster casualty or someone trades for him, right?
