    I believe it was 2016, and just before the season started. The Broncos played Carolina to open the season, and won the game when the Panthers kicker missed a FG to end the game. I remember a poster here making a post saying that our friend Baja was in heaven and helped pull the ball left; or something like that.
    Yep he passed spring of 2016.
    His last Broncos game with us was SB 50.

      I appreciate your opinion on Jones having watched him play way more than I did. After the draft, I watched what I could on Youtube, etc. and saw a player getting pushed out of the point of attack (more times than not) and not showing consistent upfield pressure. I didn’t like the pick based on what I saw at that time. He had a good start Thursday night. I probably judged him unfairly right after the draft. The HOF game kind of made me feel good to be wrong about my earlier assessment of him.
      Here’s NFL.com’s scouting report on him by Lance Zierlein. He had Jones as a 2-3rd rd pick, while Daniel Parlegreco from NFL Draft Guide had him as a 2nd rd pick. Give Kollar a couple years with this kid, and he will be our Malik Jackson, maybe better.


      Analysis

      By Lance Zierlein
      NFL Analyst Draft Projection
      Rounds 2-3
      NFL Comparison Nick Fairley

      Overview
      Jones is an extremely athletic one-gapping three-technique with the ability to play a disruptive brand of football on all three downs. His potential has never been in doubt, but in 2018 the production finally matched the talent. His body type and playing style will open him up to more feast-or-famine snaps than some of the other defensive tackles in this draft, but in the right scheme, he can become part of a swarm unit that plays on the other side of the ball.
      Strengths
      • Strong desire to be first out of his stance
      • Good lateral agility and play speed to penetrate gaps
      • Has a boxer's stick-and-move hand quickness
      • Compact, powerful slaps shed blocker's punch to access their edge
      • Fluid athlete with bouncy feet for sudden change of direction
      • Makes clever adjustments of pursuit angles in space
      • Short-area quickness becomes legit pursuit speed
      • Possesses three-down traits and talent
      • Feet and hands work in harmony as a rusher
      • Can force guards to over-set with head fakes and jab-steps
      • Shouldn't take long to develop go-to rush counters
      • Movement skills and motor to hound quarterbacks with secondary rush

      Weaknesses
      • Top-heavy frame with narrow hips and lower half
      • Lightweight frame needs muscle and mass for NFL interior
      • Quick hands could benefit with additional pop in them
      • Gets too straight-legged during engagement at point of attack
      • Tall pad level and poor base width hinder contact balance
      • Big, bully lineman can move him around if they get hands locked in
      • Below average in freeing himself from down blocks and power
      • Can be punched off-balance, forcing him to reset his rush attack
      • Needs to get to counter rush move quicker for improved finished rate
      • Size and strength concerns could make him one-gap dependent

              • Sounds like Sanders is close to full go, making plays today

                • This is getting ridicules. Can we get more than one TE in a season stay healthy?

                  • Fumagalli and Butt made out of glass.

                    Surprised Huermann hasn’t got hurt but it’s still early in preseason.

                      Talk of keeping 4 TE's on the roster is vanishing fast. Either Butt or Fumigali have to get healthy or its back to IR or at least PUP for them. Does leave a chance for Fort to get on the team but he needs to impress in the preseason games to do it.

                          • Ran a lot of offense vs defense plays today maybe the most of TC.

                            Flacco led a 2 minute drive to end practice against the 1st team D without Lindsey

                            2:20 to go , down 7-0, 1 timeout , starting on the 25. hit river cracraft with a 13 yard Td with 15 seconds left.had to go for it on 4 th and 7 once.

                            in move the ball 1st and goal to go drill hit Sutton on a 7 yard TD on 3rd and 7.

                            Sutton is def taking more of a vocal role today

                            coaches constantly working with Winfree
                            on keeping the Dbs hands off him. He does zero hand fightly on the LOS. a Downward karate chop was the move.

                            Offense making strides today

                                Interesting...they may have seen a problem in the HOF game tape. That, and they think he’s worth the extra attention.
