    He wasn't the GM when Cousins was drafted and Wilson wasn't third round so every team passed on for first two rounds.

    Correction: Yeah he did pass on Cousins as did every other team for the first three rounds.
    Cousins may not be Aaron Rodgers but hes a world beater compared to Keenum.

    I hope that CK pops an ACL in the last week so we have to go out and get someone.

    **** being nice. He's a shitty QB. A soft whiny human being. I ******* hate him. I never want to see his stupid ******* Drive-Thru worker looking face behind a Denver facemask again.

    Feel my ******* hatred. ******* feel it.

    To JS' point, I get frustrated with JFE because he's a QB, he should know what one is.
    I've thought of this too, but it kind of makes sense that a QB would know what to look for in a defensive player (which he's done pretty well with), since that's what he faced every weekend since he was a kid. I think he gets enamored with arm strength and mobility, but can't figure out the mental aspect/capability of a QB prospect (i.e. the drive to win at all costs).

    I think he fell in love with PL's physical traits and then fell in love with 'gritty guys' like CK and TS.

    The guys who have an obvious amount of both just go in the top three. I guess that's where I also get mad - the Eagles, Rams, and Texans are stoked they moved up. We did move up once, but for PL. Maybe JE is gunshy these days? It's hard for me to believe that he didn't think any of the last QB class was worthy. If you think they are, how don't you move up?

    It'll work out, though.

    Elway rightfully wanted PLs talent but had unrealistic expectations of how long itd take to develop them. Had no business starting as a rookie, in any system, and most likely not his 2nd of the same system, but especially not after changing OCs on him 3 times in 3 seasons.

    PL is/was not the sharpest peanut in the turd and Watson/Mahomes/Prescott are outliers, exceptions to the rule that predates the college spread offenses.

    If you cant have more patience than the average fan then you cant draft college spread QBs and you get stuck with scrubs.

    Elway deserves Case Siemian Yates.

    Elway should have pulled the trigger a couple times on trades in the draft. That's probably my biggest criticism of him, other than falling in love with guys who are barely in the league.

    Cordy Glenn and Trent Brown are legit NFL starting T’s, they went for (basically) a high 2nd and late 3rd , respectively.

    Brown is better, bigger, stronger, younger, cheaper, durabler, better and healthier (and better) than Veldheer. But he cost what ended up being between Yiadum and Freeman, as compared to a 7th.

    If you trade for Brown maybe you can afford to keep your #1 WR and CB.

    By the way, I’m assuming Elway was among the people Buffalo and SF contacted when shopping their T’s.

    The problem with this theory is, at 6-5/345 with 36” arms and 6-8/355 with 36” arms, neither one of them fit the 6-4/300 with 31” arms speed bump profile that Denver is looking for.

    I was thinking the same thing. But, the roster cannot stay mostly the same in 2019 because most of the veterans are UFAs and will be gone.

    And of those still under contract, the Broncos probably won't keep Brandon Marshall (just drafted Josey Jewel to take his place) and Bradley Roby (didn't exercise his 5th year option).

    This adds to the list of UFAs like: T Jared Veldheer, DT Domato Pecko, CB Trumaine Brock, LB Shaquil Barrett, LB Shane Ray, C Matt Paradis, G Billy Turner, CB Bradley Roby, DE Zach Kerr, CB Pacman Jones, TE Jeff Heurmann, G Max Garcia, QB Kevin Hogan, WR Jordan Taylor, etc., etc.

    Most of those guys will not be back.

    Adding to the complete coaching roster changes it's going to be a very different Broncos team in 2019 and not necessarily better.

    Im a big believer that VJ is behind a lot of it with a lack of preparedness (see @ Miami last year and @ NYJ this year) and inept at game day management. The lack of a playmaking QB to help mask a poor OLine compounds the problem.

    I believe if they're a well Coached team that alone is 8 wins.
