I don't want to see him at all. My first game since 2006 is going to be the KFC game, and I swear to god if Brock plays the whole game im ****ting on the 50 yard line.

Brock may end up being a bad pick, who knows. I'm not claiming him to be the next big thing. But I think John Elway, between the Manning signing, the Tebow trade, getting Koppen, getting Holliday, etc. has earned a lot of trust from Bronco fans. I think he should be given some slack. The idea that he put his personal relationships before this team's is so ridiculous it's insane.
Well said....rep!

Also add in that this Iowa guy was butthurt the Broncos didn't draft Foles...

But it's human nature to gravitate towards and have stronger positive connections to things/people we are already familiar with. If you don't think the decision to draft Osweiler wasn't impacted by a personal familiar relationship even in Elway's most subconscious levels, you are fooling yourself. Perhaps the decision wasn't entirely predicated (I can't possibly imagine it was) on their relationship, but without question to me the thoughts of his son were somewhere in his mind when he drafted Brock.

Ok, even if the deciding factor between him and some other player was due to his son's personal relationship with Brock...big deal. I recall Tommy Lasorda drafting his Godson as a favor to his friend.....and Mike Piazza ended up hitting .308 with 427 HR's and 1337 RBI's.

I figure after we're up 45-0 at the half against the Ratbirds, it would make sense to play him.

Manning can't go forever and I don't see the wisdom of waiting till you need a QB to force a high pick....best time to draft a young QB is 1) when you don't need him, and 2) when he can sit behind an established starter, especially one like Manning that he can learn from. How much better will the next QB be for having sat behinnd a HOFer? See Rivers and Rogers for the answer.
Excellent view of the situation. I couldn't agree more. Rep

Agreed. I've been cautious to jump on the Elway bandwagon before seeing evidence he knows what he's doing in the front office but I do think he knows what he's looking at when he watches a QB play and this kid has the arm, the athleticism and the football IQ to be trusted, not to mention that the iimpact of having your QBOTF sit at Manning's feet is worth a whole lot as opposed to drafting one two years later who wouldn't.

I think Elway also understood that Oz was raw an needs time to develop which is perfect because he isn't going to be needed by Denver for 3 years. Oz just needs to be patient and soak up as much info as possible.

I almost voted for option #4, but I'm leery of judging players before they ever play. Still I kind of threw up in my mouth watching clips of the guy playing in college.

2015 after Manning retires and Oz is competing against Matt Flynn for that starter's job.

He'll be nothing like his college self by the time he sees the football field as a Bronco. He'll be completely different by the start of next season, and only continue to grow from there.

I've never been a big advocate of the pick and still think we'd be better off if we'd taken Lavonte David or Rueben Randle, but Osweiler was drafted based on the raw natural talent he has and the belief by the FO that they can coach him into being a more under control, more cerebral player who still has that cannon arm, massive frame, and good mobility.
