Broncos looking sneaky good for 2020?

Recommended Posts

Jurrell Casey, AJ Bouye and Melvin Gordon could all be good acquisitions. Courtland Sutton is a stud. Depending on how Drew Lock pans out, the Broncos could be in a good position to fight for a wild card spot this season.

It's all about lock.

Gordon doesn't move the needle for me, and bouye is at best a  lateral move from Chris Harris. Casey is a really nice move, but this team is moving on from Wolfe and Harris it looks like. So are these moves legit needle moving improvements? What's the actual net gain from the moves you just mentioned.

Seems like a net loss.

Absolutely. The moves are nice on the surface and then you remember what they have lost (or are losing).

I think Gordon's an upgrade on Freeman for sure and Casey is a step up for them too, even knowing they're gonna lose guys. Can't forget they're going to get a healthy Chubb back as well. I like how this team is coming together a lot, building off of a strong finish to last year. Definitely still comes down to Lock but assuming he doesn't crater, I can easily see them in the wild card mix especially with the added playoff spot in play now.

If they land a top LT maybe, or Bolles magically stops committing penalties.

Broncos may have gotten better on paper but does it help them in the AFCW?

can't see them pass KC or LA, and LV with 2 1st round picks is gonna be stacked.

to me they'll still be bottom dwellers, however they did certainly improve their roster

Healthy Chubb is the most beneficial thing out of all of those in my opinion, and that wasn't a move that they made. The moves are a modest gain at this point (although I feel like I'm forgetting one)

Here's the thing...that team finished 7 - 9 last year. They got hosed in the Chicago game (so likely should have been 8-8), they lost to Jax by 2 on a last second field goal, lost by 2 to the colts on a 50+ yard GW Vinatiari field goal that the guy likelyl misses 8 out of 10 times last year he was so bad. I don't think that the team was as bad people believe. If their losses go in a different order (IE, not starting 0-4), they are probably on the periphery of the WC hunt for most of the season, and the team easy could have finished 9-7 as opposed to 7-9, and at the very least probably should have been 8-8 after getting hosed against Chicago. So saying they are fringe WC really isn't even an improvement in my opinion.

If Chargers get a QB, I think the Raiders/Chargers/Broncos will all be very competitive for #2 and possibly a wildcard spot. Very good division.

Melvin Gordon is 26. He didn’t just all of a sudden forget how play.

And the biggest addition is Chubb back from injury.

 I think they look nice. Could still use another piece on the Oline but if Lock lives up to the hype I think they’re going to be a good football team.

I think the issue is that a lot of people don't believe that he was ever all that good to begin with outside of one year. Not so much that he suddenly forgot how to play

On top of that, he's a high risk for injury - I think he's played one season injury free? That's not a good thing for a RB.

Got some talent, but depends on Lock..signing Gordon was dumb.

That division as a whole could be brutal pretty soon.
But the AFC at large kinda sucks. And the extra wildcard spot makes it even more likely they could sneak in.
