The Decision to Start Bridgewater – Practically a Lock

August 23rd, 2021

Quarterback controversies are almost synonymous with Bronco football.  There was Brock Osweiler and Peyton Manning back in 2015, Trevor Siemian battling Paxton Lynch the following year, and now Pay-Per-View brings us the epic battle of Drew Lock versus Teddy Bridgewater. Well, maybe that’s not Pay-Per-View worthy, but still a battle. Drew Lock seemed to be the latest heir-apparent when the John Elway selection won four-out-of-five games during his rookie campaign.  But last season Lock regressed by throwing a league-high 15 interceptions while winning only four of his thirteen starts. Teddy... Read More

Renaming the Franchise

April 21st, 2021

The Washington Football Team recently asked for fan input to find a new name for its NFL franchise.  Once known as the Redskins, the franchise abandoned the controversial team name after years of public pressure, eventually settling on calling the team the Washington Football Team until a new name was decided upon.  The organization has asked fans to vote on possible choices such as the Red Wolves, Wild Hogs, Aviators, and more. The organization has even asked for feedback on calling the team the Washington Capitol City Football Club. Hey WFT!  WTF? The conversation had me thinking about team... Read More

NFL Mock Draft – Who Does Denver Select?

April 14th, 2021

The NFL Draft is less than two weeks away and Denver has the ninth overall pick.  The off-season has been filled with the re-signing of big-name players and shoring up weaknesses with free agent acquisitions.  The Broncos could use their pick on a top linebacker, a shutdown cornerback, or depth at the offensive lineman position. And there is always that question at quarterback. A look at the 2021 NFL Draft, the predictions, and who Denver eventually decides on.   Jacksonville Jaguars – The first pick of the 2021 NFL Draft is a no-brainer. Gardner Minshew is a nice backup in the NFL, but... Read More

Drew Lock – The Phone Just Keeps Ringing

March 1st, 2021

It was a quiet Thursday evening as I sat on my couch, feet up on the coffee table.  A meaningless basketball game provided background noise as I scrolled through my phone, slowly sipping a glass of wine. The game, as usual, provided little defense and even less entertainment value, and the phone wasn’t much better.  Stories of snowstorms, friends’ postings, and the like. That’s when I came across a headline that was so hysterical, so laugh-out-loud funny, that it took everything I had not to spew my latest sip across the room as the liquid found its way out both nostrils. Teams have called... Read More

Von Miller – The Pros and Cons

February 7th, 2021

At the time, signing Von Miller to a six-year/$114 million contract seemed like a brilliant move.  It was July of 2016, and the 27-year-old Miller had already won a Super Bowl MVP award, twice made the All-Pro team, while racking up double-digit sacks every year, including 18.5 sacks back in 2012. After signing the long-term extension, Miller continued to be the face of the Broncos making eight Pro Bowls, forcing 26 fumbles, and eventually becoming Denver’s all-time sack leader with 106. But contracts are tricky, especially in the NFL.  After many years of Hall-of-Fame like production, Miller... Read More

Denver’s QB Dilemma and Ten Solutions

January 12th, 2021

It started innocently enough.  Peyton Manning had just walked away from the game and Denver was contemplating who should be the heir apparent.  Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch? I suggested a trade for, then 35-year-old, Phillip Rivers. Before the free-agent signing of Case Keenum and the subsequential drafting of Bradley Chubb, I suggested that Denver should take quarterback Josh Allen, or possibly trade down and select Lamar Jackson. And now Drew Lock sits at the top of the depth chart with career stats of 23 TDs and 18 INTs, and a lifetime record of 8-10.  If this year’s playoffs have taught... Read More
