538 Pro Bowl
  1. Official 2020 CB/S Thread

    Am I the only one that thinks Amik can be an outside CB despite his stature? This kid can just play. Put him in a zone heavy scheme where his instincts can shine and he will ball out.
  2. Broncos sign Melvin Gordon

    Ya, I don't like the price (Should have been closer to 6M AV), but the fit is great. Excited to see Lock have an elite YAC drop-off option at RB. He needs to get as many easy looks as possible to help his development. Gordon will do that.
  3. Trade idea! Thoughts?

    Well that's just silly.
  4. Trade idea! Thoughts?

    Exactly. As it stands, with no stopgap JAG FA moves, we are going into 2020 with the foolish idea that like 5 rookies can be rotation contributors. To my abilities the below are currently issues spots: WR - Full Time Starter Needed DL - 2 Rotation Players Needed - 30-50% snap caliber guys CB - Full Time Starter Needed - Relying on Bausby is insanity S - Swing Backup Needed - Sub package replacement for Parks (He has played 50% percent of snaps since his sophomore year) So we are looking to fill 5 starter or high usage rotation roles in the draft. Then we can speak on depth like OL and coverage LB. Its a unrealistically high expectation to come out of the draft with the above.
  5. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    If they means test it, the money will take at least until May. Nothing is on time extrapolated to that magnitude. The only hope it comes quickly is to just cut checks to everyone and evaluate how to deal with high earners tax season 2021.
  6. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    I would be very surprised if we don't get hit much harder than China on this. One of the few pluses of Authoritarian governments is their ability to do whatever the hell they want regardless of individual rights. People are scared to disobey in a way that is missing in America. Also, despite high rates of smoking in China the obesity epidemic in America is going to put tons of people in rough places. I think the rates of ventilation and death among younger people is likely to be higher in America than elsewhere because we have people at very young ages falling into pre-existing categories based on obesity related issues. This epidemic will bring a lot of revelations once its run the course, I hope the crippling diets many people choose to engage in will truly be examined. I am quarantining at a cabin in a Minnesota and the size of the people here is just jaw dropping. There is no way these folk are surviving a case that requires ventilation.

    Ya, that's what I was saying. Adding the snap counts of Casey, Purcell and even assuming a higher count for Jones and Walker its clear this team needs two more rotation guys at DL. We need to sign someone and draft a middle round guy (I would actually have no issues w/ Kinlaw at 15, just prefer other guys more). A new favorite of mine is Davon Hamilton. One year wonder so he likely drops but he has excellent disruptive ability for a guy who is 6'4 320lbs. I think he could lose 10lbs, become even more explosive and be a 34DE. He gets pigeon holed as a interior guy but his testing is better than '34DE accepted' guys. I would wager he is a better athlete than Jordan Elliot, Raekwon Davis, Leki Fotu and even Derrick Brown. Kid would be a deal in R3. I project his versatility as being a early down 34DE and rushing specialist NT. Sign Wolfe, get Davon in R3.

    Logan Wilson is a great mid round target. Not the same athlete as Akeem Davis-Gaithers but a much more natural ILB, whereas Gaithers may top out as a sub package LB/S. Then again, if he can put on 15lbs and retain his movement the upside is tremendous. They are far and away my top R3 / R4 (If a trade happens and we end up w/ one) targets at ILB.
  9. Free Agent Frenzy

    Ya, I am starting to worry about a cash budget issue. There is no reason to sit on our hands like this. I don't even want big names, but we need depth signings to ensure the draft isn't a reach fest to fill need. Sharpe just signed a 1 year deal w/ Minnesota. He would have been an excellent stopgap low tier WR2 to cover out draft bases.
  10. Free Agent Frenzy

    I think the value for him may be closer to 2/12M, but either way we need more DL talent. I think Purcell is a 50% snap guy at best. A good 50% of snaps, but a rotation guy. Jones is going to be a stud, but relying on him as a 80-100% snap count right now is pretty risky. Casey also is a stud, but IMO he should be kept around 70% of snaps to ensure he is fresh now that he is older. After them there is Walker who seems to be a 3rd down rusher only, maybe eating 25-30% of snaps. Long story short, we have room basically for another DL that plays 60-70% of our snaps AND a rookie rotation guy to eat 20-30%. If not Wolfe, I still have an odd affinity for Anthony Zettel. (This is all basing the DL rotation on 300% snaps total over the 3 spots, sorry if its confusing. I find looking at snap count a new interesting way to look at a position group, especially DL)
  11. Free Agent Frenzy

    I assume this is humor because Glasgow and especially Casey are excellent players and great culture guys. Durable and professional to the core. Wolfe / Casey / Jones would be a hell of a trio. All are stout enough but good for 30+ QB hits between them which is tremendous from a odd front. Add in Chubb and Von, that's hell for a QB. Not to mention nice depth rushers in Walker and Jeremiah. We would be stacked IMO.
  12. Free Agent Frenzy

    That's a tough one. I think 2/15M would be closer personally, but I also am realizing that continuity and culture matters as I age, and I think Wolfe means a lot to this locker room and franchise in general. And this isn't some nostalgia talking, if he couldn't play the above wouldn't matter, but he still can play and very well at that. I would offer 2/15M w/ 10M GTD or 2/18M w/ 8M GTD.
  13. Free Agent Frenzy

    That's sorta what I was trying to say, I didn't mean to come off too harsh on him. We need another body at WR, ideally a vet. This x100. Adding Higgins and resigning Wolfe would move this close to an A for me as a pre-draft offseason.
  14. Free Agent Frenzy

    I think there is pretty clearly a difference. A QB that flashes like Lock did, and was drafted from the get-go to be handed the keys and had such organizational investment as Lock vs a 4th round sophomore WR that was penciled in as a potential slot guy. Not to mention age difference, FR vs SO and the fact that Lock showed much more for a QB than Hamilton did as a WR. Even those last 5 games Hamilton was not spectacular in any way IMO.
  15. Free Agent Frenzy

    That's true, but going into the draft with Sutton, 5 good games of Hamilton and a poo poo platter at WR means we are basically telegraphing a R1 or R2 pick at WR. It could lead to a foolish reach. And even then, even if we add one of the top 3 WR's, we STILL need better depth. I am rooting for Hamilton, he is a much better human than I could ever hope to be, but no way should he be handed WR3 based off 5 nice games.
