  1. If drafting Barkley includes trading back up in the first to grab Hernandez I'm much more amenable. Without some real improvement at our LG spot we've got problems.

    Not a thing and I've looked. I'd be surprised if it's anything more than 1 year at league minimum with no guarantees. If it were more than that I think we would have heard something
  3. Until we get some improvement up front I'd just as soon pass on Barkley, no matter how good he is. I still remember Floyd Little trying to gain yards when Denver drafted him. He had nowhere to run and as he was the focal point of the offense defenses keyed on him. IMO without a good , even average OL, any RB will have tough time.
  4. I think the "franchise QB" is almost a thing of the past. The huge salaries being paid at that position makes it quite difficult to re-sign a QB without weakening the team financially. It's a dilemma. So far though, not one team has won a SB after their QB signed a huge 2nd contract. The Seahawks are a prime example. I agree Elway was a bit scared. Rollin' the dice on a rookie QB when you have so many other issues gets hard to defend when you've just signed a journeyman NFL QB to a two year deal with lots of dead money in each. Also, I've read a few things that suggest his teammates are pretty glad he's in Denver. You're right about the rebuild if we start a #5 pick at QB. Now that would be a tough sell in that locker room.
  5. Broncos Sign QB Case Keenum

    I'd imagine it's nothing more than due diligence on Elways part. He'll have a good chance to rate the QB's for his big board.

    Just curious if anyone knows the terms of the contract for Turner. I'd guess it's league minimum with no guarantees. In short, training camp fodder.
  7. I'd mentioned it somewhere else but I believe our QB roster is set right now. For the 1st time since PM retired we know who the starter and backup are prior to TC. No QB controversy at all, just stability for 2 years.
  8. Broncos Sign QB Case Keenum

    I don't really agree with that. IMO the OL guys that can negate a pass rush are equally valuable. Anyway, we still need OL far more than DE at this time.
  9. Broncos Sign QB Case Keenum

    There's an argument to be made for that. IMO though they'd opt for Nelson if both were available for a few reasons. 1. He's a bit light for a DE in our scheme 2. We've got Walker on the bench that should benefit this year from a year of NFL weight rooms, etc. to pack on 10+ pounds of muscle. and 3. OL is probably our biggest need right now.
  10. Broncos Sign QB Case Keenum

    I think he'll be just fine. I'm interested now in the tools they give him to succeed. This seems IMO a lot like the Plummer move. Get him a good OL, another WR and hope one of our TE's step up. Now if we take Nelson in the draft we're well on the way.
  11. Elway restructures Von's 2018 salary

    So, liked the post but have to call you on the bolded. As far as QB's go his salary is not upper tier. There's over 15 QB's in the league that make more. He' definitely getting paid mid tier wages for a mid tier player. Looks pretty fair to me.

    We just disagree, no big deal.

    So, what do you think of Edmunds? I've not heard much negative and apparently his coverage skills are good enough he'll occasionally cover a slot receiver. We all know Elway loves the physical freaks, maybe he'll draft one that's also a good ballplayer.
  14. Extension Candidates

    Like I said, we'll have to disagree. Counting on a 3rd round pick to replace a 4 year pro with 2 years starting is a long shot. Like @germ-x said, I don't really like the deal, I just don't think we had much choice.
  15. Extension Candidates

    We'll just have to disagree. I don't think it's sound management to enter the draft with such a huge hole at ILB. Then we're really forced into that pick in the draft.
