    Default Elway: No Broncos are on the trading block --SANDERS TRADED

    https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/...ng-block-slump

    "We're trying to win football games," Elway said. "So, no one from our side is on the trading block. We're going to try to continue to win football games."

    Elway said he's frustrated that it has taken so long to turn around Denver's dive and reiterated a point he made this summer to The Associated Press that his job isn't enjoyable right now -- but he stressed he has no plans to walk away before fixing the team he led to two Super Bowl titles as a Hall of Fame quarterback and another as a front-office executive.

    "I think the hardest thing about losing is you get in a situation to where something bad happens in a game and you say, 'Here we go again,' and that is a very tough thing to break," Elway said. "That's what we've got to get out of. I think it's hurt us a couple of times. But we went out and got one last week, and so we've got to continue to stay positive with it and work our way through it."

    *The statements above are my opinions, unless they are links, because then they are links, which wouldn't make them my opinions, and I suppose stats aren't necessarily opinion, but they are certainly presented to support an opinion. Proceed accordingly.

    I imagine that would solidify Elway's position. My point was highlighting the transient nature in the veracity of elway's comment

    Exactly, at this point they should be trying to acquire available talent, unless 8-8 is actually the goal.

    It'd be an improvement.

    The time to have traded away their veterans on expiring contracts was back in March when teams would offer maximum value for them. Now Sanders, Wolfe, Harris have negligible value. I heard Sandy Clough stating last night that Harris wouldn't even get them a 4th round pick in return at this point of the season.

    They missed the boat if they were going to get real value for their players and might just as well let their veterans play out their contracts and then walk. If they win one of the next 2 games Elway will continue to be deluded into thinking this team can make some kind of playoff run.

    To get into the playoffs would require 10-6, so they'd have to go 8-2 the rest of the way. Not totally impossible, but for this team which is averaging about 17 points a game? No way.

    8-8 is totally worthless. Not good enough to compete, not bad enough to get a good draft pick.

    Continuous improvement is a thing.

    How many teams have gone from 4-12 or worse to Super Bowl champs in one season?

    I'll hang up and wait for the very low number.

    Not arguing that, just saying 8-8 is bullshit.

    I’d argue that .500-ish isn’t an improvement but understanding it requires you to go somewhere you’ve never been. I get it, I thought the same way before getting a taste of Champion-ness.

    Seriously, **** .500-ish.

    Y’all can have it, I want more.

    Keep that in mind while you brand me a loser.
