  1. 2018 OTA's

    Wow. That's quite an OL staff. A little to early to read much into it but I've never heard of a team, already two deep on the OL staff adding a third with the resume Mudd brings. Lots of time for individual work.
  2. 2018 OTA's

    Finally a bit of football again. Here's a couple of articles from the Bronco's website. Great time of year. We're undefeated and look like worldbeaters. http://www.denverbroncos.com/news-and-blogs/article-1/Rookie-class-maturity-on-field-skill-already-impressing-veterans/f697ed45-acd1-4668-b327-dba8d28f5617 http://www.denverbroncos.com/news-and-blogs/article-1/Broncos-OTA-Day-1-observations/8537059e-2e37-42e1-9248-759aaae1c751
  3. He just always seems to take the right first step. Instinct, film study, whatever it is it's a great asset for an ILB. Playing a short zone I think he'll be fine. He gets to his spot fast. Anyway, glad I'm not the only one.
  4. So, I'm curious if any of you have watched Jewell much? I finally got to watch some of him and was very impressed. Things that stuck out: very sure, technically sound tackler. You don't get away from him. Great lateral quickness and short area burst. He won't win a 40 but he doesn't have to. Excellent play recognition, never takes a bad step. Anyway, seems we got a steal but I'd sure like other opinions.
  5. Official Broncos Forum Draft Thread

    Outside of Meck, the others listed were charter members of the original Orange Crush. Also, they were as good as I've seen at their positions. East and West coast bias were in their heyday and Denver got no recognition. Nobody even knew who Billy Thompson was until we went to the SB in 1977. At 31 they finally realized he was 1st team all pro. He'd been playing at that level for half a dozen years at that time. IMO best SS we've ever had.

    I understand your point but it can get out of hand pretty quick. Louis Wright (20) Gradishar (53) Billy Thompson (36) Mecklenberg (77) ........................................

    I agree with you. They still do that after the roster thins down I think except for the WR's. I guess I don't mind so much that many of ours are in the teens.
  8. Does Suttons game resemble Marshalls at all? He's still up there with Eddie Mac as my favorite Bronco "big body" WR's.
  9. Broncos decline Shane Ray's Option

    No, more like he takes the physical, Dr. says "does it hurt when you do this", you do that and scream in pain, the DR. says okay, you failed the physical. Something more like that.
  10. Broncos decline Shane Ray's Option

    Do you or anyone have any details regarding the March date physicals? I'm curious if a player can in any way influence it.
  11. Broncos decline Shane Ray's Option

    That's something that given their cap situation I don't think they can risk, regardless of how unlikely it is. They just got bit with that with Watson. I just keep in mind Vons $25 million number next year. We have no cap slack at all! None! An injured Rays cap hit of $9+ million would be devastating.
  12. Broncos decline Shane Ray's Option

    So, the flip side of the coin is that Ray, in a contract year and healthy, plays lights out and gets his double digit sacks and is a disruptive force. he'll get plenty of opportunity. Thats best for both parties. Denver gets a better comp pick and rays value goes way up as a FA.
  13. Well, I was sorta leaning towards 2017 but that was before I realized we'd drafted Aquaman to play on the OL. How can you not pick 2018 when you'll have a member of The Justice League on your OL. https://www.denverpost.com/2018/05/04/broncos-selection-sam-jones-help-stabilize-offensive-line/
  14. Odds of going Worst to First

    I'm pretty sure that just under Bowlens ownership. We had season tickets from 63 on and didn't have a winning season until until 73, the year I left college and joined the work force. That was a rough stretch. The most wins we had in any season during that time was 5 and our average season was less than 4 wins. It was tough being a fan, especially since I went to school in North Dakota and everyone there was a Vikings fan.
  15. Are You Smarter Than the Front Office v.2018

    That doesn't bother me much. His explosion for a guy his size is mighty rare. 36" vertical and 121" broad jump. That's pretty crazy.
