    I think Baker was the only QB worth anything in that draft, the others were just hype. I know he got pummeled when we played him but he wasn't making good choices either and just looked lost at times. Allen is probably going to die in Buffalo just due to lack of support from ownership and maybe the guy the Jets took could be the 3rd best but I don't see him being more than another Tannehill though he looked good against us but they were running all over us so hard to judge, especially with VJ and Woods running that D.

    Plus if we did that our Draft board would have been hosed up and our picks would have been way different. I thought the way John picked this years draft was masterful. He got a homerun with Fant, picked up a free pick to take a flyer on Lock, AFTER taking a Swing Tackle/G who will probably also be a day one starter, we needed the depth at DL and I think Jones will rotate in this year.
    You say ick but we could have had gotten Rosen for a pack of smokes. He could be terrible or could be above average. But whatever the Phins paid for him it wasn't much for a top 12 pick from last year that could be decent. My whole point is that the more options the better for Elway to get it "right".

    And Sloter is not the Son of Thor.

    Don't make no difference around here tho.


    I thought my post was funny. And that's all it was trying to be.

    Lately I'm explaining all my dumb jokes.
    It's like VJ stole the funny bone. And everyone got sad.

    Two more days until camp, everyone should chillax. We shall see all soon.

    Our newest version of Sloter type love, upgraded with the reason why Swag was supposed to be better. A HOF uncle.
    If we keep Hogan, he may even get poached off waivers. So its almost perfect for someone to love in the same way.

    I'm rooting for him. I'm hoping both Lock and Rypien beat Hogan. And both become our future.
    I am hoping to not be on it.

    I do like under dogs and I like the guys who have pedigrees of fathers or family who have played in the NFL before them but I would like to see John hit on a highly drafted QB. It also would be nice to have 2 young guys who can play behind Flacco if he flames out.

    I don't know what's this desperation in wanting to play Lock so soon, when that wasn't even in the plans going into this season.
    He hasn't even had his first training camp snap, let alone taken a meaningful snap with the team.
    I like him a lot, and the plan is for him to take a seat behind Flacco.
    There are a lot of variables that go along with his development and his own attitude and quick assimilation of the system will help him a lot, but there's not substitute for experience, so a year under his belt learning from Flacco will do good for him.
    The chefs sat mmHOomes too. They might have had ideas of what he was capable of but still didn't trust him as a rook to go out and win. If anything they were afraid of stunting his growth but looking back on it their D was better in his 1st year and if he played about 65% of the way he did last year they could have won a SB that year.

    Any analysis of Lock's college tape should lead you to the conclusion that he is the classic boom or bust QB prospect, High ceiling, but also a very low flow. Any Broncos fan with a functioning memory should be nervous as our last boom or bust QB prospect definitely went pear shape on us.

    I'm not trying to compare Drew Lock to Paxton Lynch. They are different QBs with different playing styles and each have their own suite of issues and shortcomings that potentially limit them in the NFL. But, I am definitely happy that we have only invested a 2nd round pick in acquiring Lock. That does help mitigate some of the risk associated with his development.
    You have a 50-50 chance of being right or being wrong...

    sign me up on the side that is excited to see Flacco play. I watched his games before he got hurt last year, his arm is still great and he had his best year as a pro in this system.

    Brees was considered a solid starter before going to New Orleans, not a franchise QB. And even with all of Brady's heart and work ethic, he still needed Drew Bledsoe to take a weird hit from Brian Cox to see game action. Luck and timing are as big of a factor as physical skills and where you are drafted.

    Not quite. Casinos win because on average they win more than they lose. Individuals do win, though. The model wouldn't work if some didn't win.

    It's more like saying you guarantee the Rockies will have bad pitching. Most seasons you'll be correct. No one thinks you're smart for guessing so, and you shouldn't feel like you've proved anything.
