  1. GDT Week 1: SEA @ DEN

    Finally got a chance to watch the game. Team looks improved in all phases, including coaching. Keenum’s first INT was a bad read. Maybe he misjudged Thomas? Thought he’d be rusty? I don’t know. You don’t make that seam throw against him. 2nd int looked like he and the receiver needed to get on the same page. It was a timing throw on what appeared to be a WR option route (obviously we don’t know for sure) where the read was McDougle. For the record if the read was mcdougle then I think the WR made the correct read as mcdougle was floating deep in his zone, but perhaps the read was Thomas and the correct play was to cut away from Thomas in the deep third. Again hard to get in their heads. the last INT was a hell of a play by mcdougle. Simple as that. definately things to work on but not bad considering this is their first game together (anyone remember Manning’s first game as a bronco? Chemistry takes time. And no I’m not saying Keenum will be like Manning)
  2. Training Camp Thread

    We’ve been bad longer than that! This will be the 10th season since the McStake and aside from Manning’s first three seasons we have been bottom third in the league in points scored and bottom ten in offensive DVOA, every [censored] year! Hell our Super Bowl year (the worst offense to ever win a Super Bowl) serves as the high point! BPs concerns are valid however. This team is very unproven, but on paper has talent and potential. We will see if the “leader of men” can get the most out of them
  3. Training Camp Thread

    I was with you about this AAA until my wife and kids went to camp yesterday. Bottle water was $1?! Souvenirs for <$10?!? This is in stark contrast to when I last went in 2013 where we were paying close to stadium prices. They can sell the naming rights to camp all they want if they are going to continue to pass that savings onto the fans

    Broncos brought in Howard Mudd as a consultant at least for the duration of OTAs.
  5. Odds of going Worst to First

    Every year for the past decade, with the exception of 2014 at least 1 team has gone Worst to First in their division. What do you think the Broncos' odds are? I think they are the second most likely behind the 49ers: 49ers - I love Jimmy G. I love what Lynch and Shanahan have been building over there. I think the Rams come back to earth a little bit (the Wade Phillips year 2 effect) and the Seahawks and Cards appear to be in full rebuild mode. Broncos - We are still only 2 years removed from a SB victory. I believe in Case Keenum to be an above average QB, something we haven't had in 3.5 years. I think bolles will be greatly improved with an additional year plus an LG who can play and I liked what I saw from McGovern the last month of the season. I think Our O can become league average which could be enough with our elite D in the weakened AFC West (Gruden may very well turn the it around but this year definately appears to be a step back, the chiefs saw a lot of talent leave and Mahomes will struggle his first season, and the Chargers always seem to find a way to claim defeat from the jaws of victory Giants - the NFC east has had a worst to first 9 of the last 10 seasons. So history tells us it should be them. much improved coaching, faith in Eli, and what should prove to be a powerful run game will help. the division is overrated and the defending champs don't know when they will get their QB back... maybe I should have them higher.... Texans - JJ watt should come back healthy (isn't this the 3rd or 4th year in a row we've said this) and although I'm interested in seeing how Watson adjusts to the defenses adjusting to him, there is no denying he is an upgrade. The Jags still have Bortles and who knows of Luck will ever return to the luck of old. Bears - I really like the direction the bears are heading, but I think Nagy (who will be a good coach in this league eventually) is likely to have some growing pains in a tough hard nosed division. Bucs - I dont trust Winston or Koetter. Add in a division with 3 playoff teams last year and I don't see them climbing to first. Browns - If they had drafted any other QB #1 I would like their chances. I actually like most of what they have done this off season, and they were not as bad as 0-16 says. That said, Jackson is not a strong enough leader to lead that QB room if Baker isn't starting. I think Baker will start before he is ready, struggle, lose the respect of his teammates, and get his head coach fired before the end of the season. Jets - I like what they have done but as long as Brady and Belichick are still in NE....

    I think they’ll do whatever they can to justify keeping Watson. I’d expect him to work at OG this offseason to see if he can contribute there and be an ultimate utility lineman

    That....that was a horrible day.
  9. Nobody is posting the Chubb pick?

    Honestly, Im not even mad that he turned it down! I'm glad he did. I just don't know if I would have had the balls to stick to my guns like that.

    It's late and I'm drunk, so my internet sarcasm detector is broken. This is a joke right?
  11. Nobody is posting the Chubb pick?

    Man, I love Chubb but I dont know if I would have turned that down. You cant know in the moment who would have been there but It would/could have been Chubb + Freeman vs Vita Vea + Isaiah Wynn + Isiah Oliver
  12. Un drafted free agent signings

    Nice! I didn't even know that he was draft eligible. every time he played the buffs the last couple of years (honestly the only time I saw him play) he seemed to dominate. But then again it was the buffs....
  13. Official Broncos Forum Draft Thread

    I hope you're right. I actually really liked what I saw from McGovern the last month of the season. I think with a full off-season working at the position (and a tackle at his side who isn't a human turnstile) he can surprise people.

    I like it! We saw day 3 in a fairly similar manner.

    Yes he’s athletic and has relied this far purely on technique. He’s also 6-5 with the frame to add 30lbs of lean weight. He’s a PS stash who could contribute in a couple years.
