  1. What TV Show Are You Watching?

    Started watching the 100 not a bad show does it stay good?
  2. 2019 NFL QB Draft Prospects

    Yea but we have no shot at Lawrence unless wed get the first pick. Highly unlikely. And elway is fighting for his job cant expect him to sit back.
  3. Who are the greatest never was' of the NFL?

    Oh I get it he absolutely sucked after his stint with Tampa. But his sophomore season in Tampa was so impressive. He had like 27 tds and 6 picks. A 70.3 qb which to put that number into context that 70.3 qbr is better than rivers 8 out of last nine seasons. People thought Freeman was gonna progress and improve from that season and he just never did. It's kinda shocking because he had talent, he could play in this league and then he couldn't. It's an odd situation. Something had to happen to him mentally or physically. There's no reason a 26 year olds talents should erode like that. He's still only 31 and isn't even playing in the AAF.
  4. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    You're right those teams are more sure things to pick with a top 15 selection next year. I still think Steelers have an outside chance at a top 10. Between the Ab drama, Tomlin coaching for his job, big ben older and stayed injury free last year he's due, their oline coach being with us. . I could see their pick in the 20s or top 10 next year. No one saw the Jags imploding like they did this year to get a top 7 pick after an afc title game. Raiders didn't see bears being better than the niners thats why they traded Mack to Chicago. That didn't work out. I don't try to project too much a lot can change.
  5. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    I think if you trade down in the 20s there will be talent in a need position. Adderly, Fant, Irv Smith, a nice olineman. If we don't get a qb at 10 we're gonna need a plan to get one next year. It just is the way it is. Otherwise it truly is gonna be a treadmill situation this team is in.
  6. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    I think if a qb doesn't fall to pick 10 that elway wants he's got to try to trade down to get some future assets. Say Pittsburgh absolutely falls in love with white and hes there at 10 he needs to trade down and try to get a future first. Because we're gonna need some ammo if we're a playoff team to trade up for a qb.
  7. Who ends up drafting Kyler Murray?

    Eagles are gonna franchise tag him
  8. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    I agree with all of this factor in you have to give up a minimum of a 3rd for Foles. And it's kind of an easy choice. Foles had been in a perfect environment in Philly. Whenever Foles had success in his career he had a top 5 oline and good to great weapons. Problem is thats hard to duplicate whatever team picks him up. Especially now, assuming you're gonna have to give solid pick compensation at least a 3rd and 25 million a year. I'm not saying Flacco is gonna work its too early to tell. But he did have his career year in a Kubiak offense which is similar to this. It be nice if Troy Fumagalli hits as a decent receiving blocking te. And we can pair him with a good one early in the draft. Having 2 capable tes will be huge running heavy personel and such. That will help scheme versatility. That and Sutton is a perfect Flacco type of wr.
  9. In the last decade, how much has scouting changed?

    There's way more to their success than that. There's a reason they haven't taken a second round wr since Chad Jackson. Patriots always find diamonds in the rough and develop them to be the best. There's a reason they let chandler jones go who is a talented pass rusher. Patriots always seem to find players that care more about winning than breaking the bank. Who carve out a nich Edelman, welker, James White, etc.
  10. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    Well at 25 million compared to 18.5 for Flacco at a (3rd round pick compensation) minimum compared to the 4th for Flacco. 6 mill is a huge difference in compensation, and the pick is huge a 3rd round is so much more Valuable than a 4th to me. I just don't see Foles being significantly better than Flacco which would be required of you prefer him to Flacco Last year Foles in an ideal situation besides a great ground game due to Jay getting injured, and Clement. Still feel like Sproles and Josh adams are underrated. But foles was 19th on pro football focus at a 76.6 grade. Flacco was 22nd in pff grade at 72 even and Foles was in a lot better of a situation. Flaccos number 1 was Brown or Crabtree. You could argue Nelson Agholor or Golden tate are in that tier. Alshon is a top 20 wr. Ertz a top 3 te, Doug Pederson is a far better offensive mind then anyone flacco had to work with.
  11. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    I've watched Foles play the last two years. He is clutch in big games can't take that away from him. But being a spot starter is a lot easier than a 16 game season. I'd bet a lot of money that Flacco has a better chance of being comeback player of the year this year than Foles does maintaining his level of play from Philly. There's not many teams that have a great coach, top 5 oline, A top 3 te, a lengthy number 1 possession wr, Golden Tate, a very good rookie te that was the second te. Foles is almost surely gonna revert back to his mean.
  12. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    I just don't see it that way. Foles has had the perfect circumstances the last two years from line play top 5, to weapons, to an excellent head coach who got the best out of him. When he didn't have Alshon the first couple weeks he struggled. That's so hard to keep all those variables going to a new team that trades for him. Annnddd they will have to pay him 25 mill a year, and he himself has just as much injury history as flacco. I don't see Foles being able to be a 16 game starter or wouldn't bet on it. I think the team that pays a 3rd + for Foles will regret it. The flacco trade has a lot better chance of being a hit. Trading for Foles is risky.
  13. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    If Foles gets traded to the Jags for at least a 3rd will that change peoples views of the flacco trade who don't like it?
  14. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    I'll be the first to say Flacco has underperformed that contract. But a lot of it isn't on him. Ozzie Newsome has been bad drafting offensive talent, like worse than elway bad. Max Williams bust, perriman bust, I mean the only real home grown talent they've had since rice left was Torrey Smith. Like Ozzie knows hes bad at it that's partially why he goes the free agent route. Ben Watson, Mike Wallace, Steve Smith, John Brown, Michael Crabtree, Jeremy Maclin, Anquan Boldin you can go on and on. That's a big reason why he paid Flacco all that money. He thought Flacco would bring stability rather than going draft and picking another kyle boller. Last year His last year as gm Lamar Jackson kept falling. He felt the value was too good and traded up and took the shot at him. It was his last year why not. After last years impact draft and with an infusion of a young innovative oc . I have some confidence they will ve able to identify talent and surround Flacco with more pieces.
  15. Broncos trade for Joe Flacco

    Plus say whatever you want about Joe as the player. Being an 11 year veteran is huge to have for whatever young qb we bring in. Joe knows how to prepare, he knows how to lead, he's well respected. I think in Elways mind Trevor Siemian under Peyton learned a lot through osmosis in a year. Brock learned a lot he just isn't a franchise qb it was a misevaluation. I know joe is not Peyton I just think elway likes that model in his qb room. Veteran with young promising young guy.
