He’ll be good enough to keep the Broncos from getting a good draft pick. Bridge water is a likeable guy, generally makes good decisions in the pocket, but never been that impressed with his arm strength which means the down the field threat won’t quite be there for the Broncos.

I like the call, Lock just doesn't have the mental makeup to be a good NFL quarterback, too many bad decisions.

Even just competent quarterbacking will be a nice step up from the past, jeez, however long it's been now since Manning lit it up the year before they beat Carolina.

This is a shit looking QB draft coming up. I’m sure people will be wanking over Spencer Rattler as a top 10 pick by February. Denver should trade it’s first toward Rodgers instead. Short term gain, sure, but it would be worth it.

Broncos definitely need to make a move for a veteran QB this offseason. Von Miller isn't getting any younger, the defense is stacked right now, the receiving corps is great, and this is the first time since the Elway days the offensive line seems to be competent. Put a guy like Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, or Matt Ryan on this squad and they're an instant threat.

I wanted Stafford. Too bad.

Broncos are a sub .500 team with Bridgewater at QB and Fangio at coach though

I disagree. They won 5 games last season with no Von Miller, no Cortland Sutton, and a four person starting QB corps that included Drew Lock, Jeff Driskell, Brett Rypien, and a practice squad WR named Kendall Hinton. Six of their losses were by one score.

They also had the hardest schedule in the league last year versus the easiest in the league this year.

If Bridgewater manages to stay healthy and not have two turnovers per game, the Broncos will be 9-8 at worst.

I just get the feeling that Rams won't take that big of a step forward with Stafford under center. It'll make them better, but I don't think he's the missing piece. But hey, I hope the Rams prove me wrong because I have their defense for my fantasy football team.

The rest of their division is too strong. Could end up looking like the NFCE, simply because it's a group of death. But you have Wilson, Murray, and Stafford. 9ers might still show up. 8-8s across the board.

um... 9-8, 8-9 across the board. Forgot the added game.

The Panthers are going to suck as usual. The Cowboys will get too much airtime for being such a shitty team. Tom Brady will probably be in the Super Bowl.

Meh.

Brady looks pretty sharp so far. Totally forgot the Bucs had AB too.

Fitzpatrick with the handcuffs on has little real magic. Ron needs to let Fitz loose.

You were saying?

Watching the Bears shit themselves on national TV will never ever get old for me.

Broncos looked really good against a bad Giants team.

But that works out fine because they have a bad Jags team and a bad Jets team up next.

Bowlens expected to sell Broncos for around $4 billion next year, Jeff Bezos and Jay-Z are the first two big names rumored to be interested buyers (Jay would need a group).

Always love to see teams sold to entertainers.

like when you sell a home cart to someone, 6 months later that buyer’s remorse has kicked in so much that cart is flipped to the next sucker.

I hope whomever buys them buys the Rockies from the stupid pigfarmer Monforts too.

The Kroenkes are fine as the owners of the Avs, Nuggets, Rapids, Mammoth.

Damn football team are worth big bucks !
The Broncos are one of the most valuable teams because they've sold out every single home game since 1970 (COVID-restricted games all sold as many tickets as they allowed).

You could get a shitty team like the Bengals or Lions for under 2.5 billion.

That was a wild MNF. Miraculous example of the Raiders overcoming their own repeated fuckups

Neither team wanted that W but the Ravens wanted it a little bit less.
