Iím glad the Chiefs arenít doing what has failed for decades anymore.

The Broncos have never won anything meaningful without an elite QB starting for them. The only time the Chiefs had marginal playoff success since their Super Bowl was also when we had an elite QB start for us.

Itís not a coincidence.

You don't think Denver knows they need a young QB. In the draft unless you have a top 3 pick you have to be a little lucky. Sean Payton wanted Mahomes at #11 and decided to wait. KC was lucky to find a trade partner at #10. Its not a given that the team at #10 would want to fall back that far.

Indy also got lucky to suck for Luck in the right year.

You guys usual argument is that Manning sucked and the league wanted him to win and that Elway couldn't ever win one until he was washed up and had TD carry him.... But now they were elite and the reason we won. Convenient isn't it?

There are always stupid teams in the NFL. Mahomes should have never lasted to 10, Rodgers should have never lasted to the 20ís, Brees to the 30ís and Wilson to the 3rd rd.

I think the first thing you guys have to do is find a good offensive coach who knows how to find a QB. Thatís step 1.

Denver needs to find an offensive innovator like the Rams did (and hell, even Andy Reid - Kool Aid man is an offensive innovator and not afraid to try new wrinkles) as their OC if not HC. They can't keep recycling guys who think it's still 1999 and call games that way.

Iím wondering if Elway knows that. He had the #5 pick last year and struck out looking.

After re-watching the Broncos vs KC game I'm feeling quite furious at how the game was officiated. There were at least 4 questionable calls, OPI on sanders and roughing the passer on barrette were total BS. I think NFL didnt want broncos to win against hyped up cheifs may be for rating purpose. remember RAMs and KC will be playing soon

....you all are falling right in line with being the fan base of a middling fringe team..... ....KC used to be right there if it weren't for those damn officials!.... get used to losing alot of important games because of "bad" officiating.

We had 2 seasons of Damon Huard

We had 1 season of Tyler Thigpen

We had 4 seasons of Matt Cassel

We had 5 seasons of Alex Smith

The year we had the number 1 pick the BPA was Eric Fisher (who's actually done really well this year).

No one deserves Patrick Mahomes more than the Chiefs.

It's damn hard to argue with you on this. F me. That is a putrid list. That is 12 years of even more, all the way back to......
You win the interwebs tonight ILuvBroncos!!
Good Lord. The smell of that list stings the nostrils.

Brody Croyle missing from that awful list. Never won a game in KC (or anywhere) BARF.

In all seriousness, Denver is in a rough spot...you are working with your version of Gunther Cunningham right now at HC....and your next coaching hire may well be good....but like the old Chiefs...your circumstances are just not set up to where you'll be in the right place at the right time for that franchise QB.

The free agent crop isn't promising, the draft class in 2019 isn't promising, and even if it were, you haven't quite sucked hard enough to really be in position to make that happen.

this past draft class, I see alot of blame going to Elway....and it should, but not because he passed a QB on DRAFT DAY....when they brought VJ back, that was the day they decided to punt on drafting a QB....you only bring VJ back if you decided he didn't win because of Simien, and you want to give him and his staff a prove it year with someone like Keenum. You don't draft a QB and give him to a coach who has this year to save his job.

Carl Peterson and Elway aren't the same guy, but in KC we always thought that Carl built a roster to have a winning record, and not to win a championship. We assumed, as he probably also did, that winning and selling tickets would keep him employed. Carl was never going to risk his job on a QB. I would like to think that Elway has enough cred with the leadership and the fans to pick another coach and draft a QB again.

I think the actual best way to go about it would be to go ahead and keep VJ another year...why fire him now? There is no savior QB out there...you have Keenum under contract another season....frankly your best chance is to SUCK for 2020 when the prospects are better....you can get a new coach, draft a QB and start the process. You need to be awful NEXT year for the greater good.

But you won't. And I will smile.

Chiefs defense is allowing 17.5 PPG over the last six weeks if you take out the Pats game.

2-game lead for HFA

We definitely do not suck

Way too early to project for next year.

But the schedule isnt exactly easy.

Home: Chargers, Raiders, Chiefs, Lions, Bears, Titans, Jags, AFC North 3rd place team lets presume the Ravens here.
Road: Chargers, Raiders, Chiefs, Packers, Vikings, Colts, Texans, AFC East 3rd place team Jets/Bills.

Raiders have three 1st round picks and a ton of cap space. If Jags land a QB, they're good. Thats no easy schedule.

And keeping VJ doesnt help even if he helps losing, the team needs a new coach. Whoever that may be.

Regarding QB, teams always trade up for their guy, so it doesnt matter what pick it if Denver isnt bottom 5 bad next year.

This year, i think HFA matters alot in the AFC.

NE hasnt won a road playoff game in 12 years. At NE, they're pretty close to unbeatable with the refs in their back pocket. Get them away from Foxboro and they can be had.

If the AFCCG would be NE/KC.
