  1. A lot of people have bone spurs. Most don’t bother you. A lot of them overly high use areas and are buildups created by the body to protect themselves. So you will see bone spurs in an area of injury but in reality it’s an incidental finding. So you play it conservative. You don’t cut into the ankle of a pro athlete because his sprained ankle shows he has an incidental bone spur. But if the inflammation in the area keeps reoccurring at an abnormal rate you start to consider the fact that this could be one of the (relatively) rare spurs that is causing an issue and now the pros outweigh the con

  5. So “high ankle sprains” are such a misnomer. It’s an injury of the syndosmosis, the ligament between the tibia and fibula. If it’s a complete tear this can be more unstablizing than a fibular fracture. Add in the fact that blood supply to the tendon is barely adequate and recovery times can take up to a year to get back to 100% (again this is for a complete tear) I don’t know how bad his is but given the fact that his game is so reliant on quick plants and route running I doubt he is 100% until next season

  7. Remember how when we passed on Josh Rosen how it was going to set our franchise back 15 years? (and to a lesser extent Josh Allen, but looking back it seems only AAA was beating that particular drum at the time) no one is doubting that we need a franchise QB. But you don’t swing for the fences if you believe it to be a bad ball. There are those that disagree with the assessment that Fields was not a great fit (personally I had him as the #2 QB, but I also think that this class after Lawrence was hugely over rated. Similar actually to the 2018 draft where mayfield, Darnell and Rosen were
  8. Honestly I’ve lived both ways and the answer is… balance. Being tight on space sucks when you’re stuck at home, being tight on money makes EVERYTHING suck. I have three kids so we need 4 bedrooms. What we don’t need is a 600sqft kitchen, a living room AND a rec room. The way we achieve that balance is that I increased my commute time. I drive ~1hr each way. My vocation is big into podcasts so I can catch up on recent articles ect on my way into work and listen to podcasts and audiobooks (both fiction and non-fiction) on my way home. That allows me to unwind and that’s a decision that works fo
  9. Fort and schlottman a little bit of a surprise. Not a big surprise but there’s talent there
  10. I would agree with this. Going from one of the toughest to one of the easiest schedules, continued improvement of the OL under munch, continued improvement of the young skill players, getting court back, getting Von back, massive improvement in the secondary, and yeah improved QB play (which I think we would have had regardless of the QB) should result in ~5 more wins
  11. Honestly I’ve been so busy the last 18 or so months that I don’t know what anyone’s opinion is. Was just using your words mate. 😂I answered and literally copy and pasted what you had typed.
  12. I laid out exactly what I saw, significant improvements in his identified deficits. Specifically, what did YOU see, this preseason, to have such a strong opinion that he doesn’t get the nod? either way I’m rooting for the Broncos to win this season. just seems weird to me that there are some, who argue that we need an answer at QB in one post and then in another defend playing Teddy when we had a chance to at least have answers at QB heading into next offseason and instead we kicked the can down the road another year.
  13. I don’t know that he’s good. I don’t know that he’s bad. I do know that he has tripled his career offseason work this year (got injured 2 weeks in rookie year, obviously none last year) and has made huge improvements on the issues he had (making the right read, footwork, using his eyes to manipulate the defense, touch). kid has the tools and appears to be making strides on his deficits. Arguably won a competition where the cards were stacked against him (most of the starters were sat for his “start” and again when he came in on relief, while Teddy got multiple 4th down attempts to bo
  14. Got to watch part of the game in the airport last night. Man the coaches want teddy to win that job. 3 fourth downs in 2 drives just so you can prop him up? Sit most of the starters the week Drew “starts” and play them when Teddy “starts”
  15. Congratulations on the upcoming little one!
  16. How has Drew’s feet looked? Has he been setting them? Climbing the pocket? Any designed boots? im at work and not getting the game so any answers would be appreciated
  17. I read the king piece, what’s the troubling part? The fact that he thinks all pro caliber CBS are more rare than run of the mill QBs? It’s obvious that they didn’t view Fields and Jones as franchise QBs (there are those here who disagree with that assessment). is the best long term strategy to take who you view as a potential small upgrade to what you have at QB (something that comes out every year) or to take a potential all pro at the 4th most important position in modern football? I don’t disagree with the logic even though I may disagree with the assessment of fields (I
  18. In a competition to see who can be the best Teddy Bridgwater (safe with the ball, take what the D gives you) it’s neck and neck.
  19. That’s simply not true. It’s not that he’s inaccurate, at least not in a Tim Tebow or Jamarcus Russel sense. He plays with ****ty footwork when he gets off rhythm in the pocket. He does much better on designed roll outs because of this. (which is why he was better his rookie year) footwork can be fixed. We’ve seen it with Josh Allen. Let’s see if the kid put in the requisite work in his first full offseason.
  20. Damn, this one hit me hard. Gibbs is the reason I love OL play do much (I was scrawny in HS, played S and WR) Story time. I wasn’t a very good kid as a teenager. Got busted for underage drinking in 1997 at the ripe old age of 13 and sentenced to community service building a park. This was June-ish and Broncos OL and Coach Gibbs showed up. Gibbs gave me that verbal *** kicking that only a great coach can give. That one that implores you to say thank you and yearn for more at the end. Best day of my life. God speed coach.
  21. “I found out fans here are pretty close to giving the Packers fair market value for Rodgers.” thank god fans make those types of decisions. ANY WAYS… Hopefully this can be a make or break for Lock this year. Given that it’s also make or break for Vic I wouldn’t be surprised to see the defensive coach go with the vet in Teddy B.
  22. Right?! I remember being sooo excited that we drafted him. Not just the fact that we needed a WR, but more excited that we DIDN’T draft Dez or Tim Tebow (though that particular joy was soon squashed)
  23. If for no other reason his Crue is great
