  1. Let the Offseason Begin

    If tanking was the goal, then Keenum was the solution.
  2. 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.
  3. Josh Rosen

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

    Seems like the old saying, "A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush" applies here.
  5. 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?
  6. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    So if we can't trade Keenum, we might as well hold onto him, no?
  7. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    So much for the fountain of youth...fingers crossed...I don't like Flacco...are we just piecing together chit to see what sticks because we can't draft or coach up talent?
  8. Which Non-QB would you draft at 10?

    I’m not impressed with Brady. I think Bilichick’s defenses get the nod for all but 1 SB - vs the Falcons. I refuse to acknowledge Brady as the GOAT.
  9. Which Non-QB would you draft at 10?

    Remeber when Cam Newton went #1, then Von Miller #2, however there was alot of opinion that we should pick Dareus... ...then Cam & Von met in the SB... Rare, but perfect example where a really good QB wasn’t good enough I’d want the very best player at a position we value highly. Not just a good prospect, but when one is picking this high, don’t REACH.

    It's not that I disagree, or even know how to evaluate talent...but what were Brady's shortcomings? I mean, he was a late rounder for good reason, no? He still has bad traits too, no? What I'm saying is, it's a crap shoot and what choices do we have? At some point you gotta put 11 men on the field and let them battle it out. Lock doesn't have to be the GOAT, he just has to win.
  11. Random Thoughts

    Go tell Elway that to his face
  12. What is your dream for the 2019 Broncos draft?

    Thinking about the draft... http://www.espn.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/293067/why-a-500-point-season-doesnt-mean-much-at-the-super-bowl “Of the previous 19 500-point scorers, four have won the Super Bowl -- the 1994 San Francisco 49ers, 1998 Denver Broncos, 1999 St. Louis Rams and 2009 Saints. That pales in comparison to the 14 times the team with the No. 1 scoring defense has won the Super Bowl.” So, hopefully we don’t ‘reach’ for a QB if a gem is available.
  13. Front Office Changes?

    French Fan, you usually have some insightful things to say, not trying to be a jerk, but i don't get what you're saying with this post. It's like you're talking out of both sides. I think Wade Phillips got the most out of our D and won the SB. Manning got us there, or close to it, all other years - I blame other factors those years (head coach, D coach, injuries), not Manning. I don't think Elway can draft to save his life. I think Fox was the original builder of our D. Honestly, I have no idea what goes on in that room and what Elway is good at...

    NE is the prime example. They jettison so many good/great players and keep right on killing it.
  15. The Search for Coaching Staff Begins

    Imagine back to back years with alternating home jerseys
