  1. How the NFL should go to an 18 Game Schedule

    Who said anything about late season? I kinda think there would be an art to knowing when to bench your QB, for example if you have a terrible team in your division do you bench him twice and think you can still win with the backups? Surely the best way to do this would be to bench 1-2 starters every game rather than putting all your backups on the field at once.
  2. NFL Coaching Hot Seat

    He got the entire season and then was fired. Raiders fired Dennis Allen after starting 0-4 in 2014, I think both Scott Linehan and Lane Kiffin were fired 4 games in to 2008. Those three are the earliest coach firings I remember in any given year.
  3. The Best Super Bowl Victory & Why?

    We won super bowl 50, not LI.
  4. Odds of going Worst to First

    Draft tiebreaks work by strength of schedule whereas tiebreaks within division use head to head, division records etc
  5. Interestingly I remember some guys on here being low on Montee Ball because of his # of carries at Wisconsin and Elway picked him anyway. Seems like Elway just doesn't buy into the theory that a large number of carries in college is a bad thing for a RB.
  6. 2018 Free Agency Discussion Thread

    He wont negate anything. Cut players don’t count towards the comp pick formula
  7. 2018, easily. Now as it stands I think both could turn out to be decent drafts, but in terms of the guys that play the same positions, I think the fact we even drafted them in 2018 shows the 2017 guy is on notice. QB: Only one guy drafted in either year here, Chad Kelly in 2017. He'll be given the chance to win the backup job, but ultimately I think Lynch beats him out and I doubt we keep all 3 so Kelly either ends up on our practice squad or cut. RB: Royce Freeman is the standout talent here. David Williams and DeAngelo Henderson likely battling for only one roster spot. I think Henderson beats out Williams, but even still the Freeman pick means 2018 wins out here. WR: I think Sutton will be our WR3 here and I think Hamilton will probably be the WR4, whereas Henderson will be gameday inactive and McKenzie won't make the team. Easy win for 2018. TE: Jake Butt over Troy Fumagalli. Win for 2017. OL: 2017 wins by default since we got our franchise Left Tackle in Bolles. Sam Jones was the only OL pick in 2018, he's probably a practice squad guy. DL: Walker the only defensive lineman from either year, hopefully he can force his way into the rotation otherwise this is in danger of being a 0-0 draw. EDGE: 2018 wins this by way of Bradley Chubb. ILB: 2018 wins. Josey Jewell should be involved in the rotation and Bierra at least has a 50-50 shot to make the roster depending on how he does on special teams in the preseason. CB: Langley vs Yiadom, both third round picks. Thing is, we've signed Trumaine Brock and drafted Yiadom as well as trying to sign Delvin Breaux this offseason. I know we lost Talib, but that tells me our staff aren't enamoured with Langley's progress. These two likely battle to be the 4th corner, unless one of them really impresses and gets ahead of Brock. Our dime package has a 3rd safety instead of a 4th CB, so really injuries will be needed to see either of these guys much outside of special teams. S: No safeties drafted in either year.
  8. Broncos decline Shane Ray's 5th year option

    Thing is that Ray is only ever going to be our 3rd OLB behind Von and Chubb so no way we're setting the value at $9m per year. Depending on how his 2018 goes I could see us re-signing him for $5m-$6m a year if he proves to be a solid role player.
  9. Random Thoughts

    What about the guy who absolutely LOVED CJ Anderson in 2013 when he was the 4th RB on the depth chart and inactive every week? Yet was nowhere to be seen when Anderson actually became decent
  10. 2018 Starting Lineups and Depth Chart

    I think what will actually happen is Sutton and Thomas will play outside and Sanders in the slot, but Sutton gets listed as “slot” because he’s the guy that only comes on to the field in 3 WR sets. Similar to how Roby has been our “nickel” corner for years even though he actually plays outside with CHJ in the slot.
  11. Chargers to cut Gates

    Denver should at least bring him to camp, got no veteran TE on the roster. Plus it would be a second year in a row we sign a franchise legend from one of our rivals.
  12. 2018 Starting Lineups and Depth Chart

    Every year I predict the final 53 after the draft, I’m always wildly wrong, but just a bit of fun: QB: Case Keenum, Paxton Lynch RB: Royce Freeman, Devontae Booker, DeAngelo Henderson, Phillip Lindsay FB: Andy Janovich WR: Demaryius Thomas, DaeSean Hamilton WR: Emmanuel Sanders, Carlos Henderson Slot: Courtland Sutton TE: Jake Butt, Jeff Heuerman, Troy Fumagalli LT: Garrett Bolles, Elijah Wilkinson LG: Ronald Leary, Billy Turner C: Matt Paradis, JJ Dielman RG: Connor McGovern, Sam Jones RT: Jared Veldheer DE: Derek Wolfe, DeMarcus Walker NT: Domata Peko, Kyle Peko DE: Shelby Harris, Clinton McDonald, Adam Gotsis OLB: Von Miller, Shaq Barrett ILB: Brandon Marshall, Josey Jewell ILB: Todd Davis, Zaire Anderson OLB: Bradley Chubb, Shane Ray, Jeff Holland CB: Chris Harris Jr, Brendan Langley CB: Bradley Roby, Isaac Yiadom Nickel: Trumaine Brock FS: Justin Simmons, Jamal Carter SS: Darian Stewart, Su’a Cravens, Will Parks K: Taylor Bertolet P: Marquette King Jr LS: Casey Kreiter

    We've taken Wisconsin TE Troy Fumgalley, pretty nice pick.
