    Yeah, but if we are playing the do-over game, there are half a dozen teams that would have taken Lock in the first round. The Broncos have screwed up a lot in the past. Be happy that they appear to be screwing up less now.

    Does Denver have the worst medical staff? That got me curious. Is DB2 just doing his usual BRONCOS ARE WORST EVAR AT EVERYTHINNNNG like always, or is there something to it?

    I Googled "worst medical staff nfl", and it led me to this interesting article. It's bleacher report, but it seems well written:

    https://bleacherreport.com/articles/...ld-of-injuries

    As far as results, the Eagles came up a bunch, as did the Redskins, and surprisingly even the Saints came up.

    Denver didn't come up on any results, fwiw.

    this med staff has been the worst in football over the years IMO. They’ve ****ed up a lot of players. Several took to outside doctors instead.

    Brandon Marshall and Al Wilson will go as some of the worst. Cutler went a full season without even getting diabetic treatment after constantly showing symptoms and approaching the staff. Greek telling him “it’s just rookie fatigue” is among the worst diagnosis through these years.

    so James May be soft, but I don’t blame him for questioning a horrendous med team.
    It’s hard to know. Frankly I’m impressed that James has maintained his cool despite being called out by coaches and hasn’t engaged in any criticism of the staff that I am aware of. It’s not a great look by he coaches even if he is dead weight. He should see an outside knee specialist if he hasn’t.

    I'm not saying JJ's situation is the same at all, I'm just saying medically cleared and ready to go are not always the same thing. While my job was pretty physical, it's nowhere near what a OT goes through.

    He might be a giant p*****. He might just need some time to heal and get right. Either way he's likely not going anywhere next year, so I'm hoping he will get healthy and be able to contribute.

    Yeah, could be we just had another example of **** luck with filling the position. James was a solid player that took a bad hit and was pretty much lost for the season. It sucks, but **** happens. Right now we can only hope that he can be healthy for the 2020 season because we are paying him regardless if he plays or not. I would go ahead and draft a pair of OTs in the first 3 rounds of the draft and start preparing for the possibility of needing a replacement sooner than later.

    Reasonable to question his injury past. I would like to hear Schlereth weigh on this injury and the ability to play on it. He certainly fought through a significant amount of issues and still played. Don't like it but not ready to give up on him. There seems to be no middle ground here with all the expertise that is commenting.

    Most guys coming put of college usually need a year or two to strengthen up and learn the position before they are ready to play in the NFL.

    The ones like Risner who out of the gate play well are the exception, not the rule. That was another really good get in the 2nd for Elway.

    All Matt did was start every game anchoring that Super Bowl O-line in 2015. Started all 16 the next two years until the ankle injury. I don't know how bad the injury was but John couldda cut him a little slack.


    Cooper Carlisle started every raiders game for 6 years after we let him go, and Lichtensteiger started 5 or 6 years for the Redskins after we cut him, although Shanny was the head coach there and he drafted Kory.
    Elway had to make a call. If we had cut Paradis some slack and he didn't recover from the injury to be what he was before, Elway would have been criticized to no end. He went with the recommendation of the doctors and hopefully not just the internal guys because they aren't specialists. Then you had to weigh where they projected McGovern (and pay) vs Paradis.

    Beadles only made the pro bowl once, as an alternate with the Broncos. Ben Garland, Schofield, and Sambraillo are still playing too but are any of them really better than Bolles or even Wilkinson?
    How well has Paradis played this year?

    McGovern and Risner are what they should be building on. He’s not all world but he’s dependable enough. Leary is done. Both ends are done. Wilkerson is decent depth. Bolles Needs to go When that contract is up. No 5th option at all. One thing that could salvage him is if he’s moved to Leary’s spot in this final attempt and shows improvement. The holding penalties could go down inside. He will always be a dunce at LT

    No, he was a classic developmental prospect. The kind that use to be pretty common place in the NFL. Currently, if you were taken in the first 4 rounds and aren't getting pro-bowl consideration by your third year, you are considered a bust. McGovern was always in interesting one to me, because he had crazy lower body strength. Just go look up some of his squat videos where he is putting up insane amounts of weight. But, his technique was raw and under developed, so he couldn't translate that strength to on-field production. I actually liked him best as a left guard during his limited play time there. Still, after a really rough start, he had transitioned into a decent center for us. Not good enough to break the bank on. But, if he can be signed to a reasonable deal I would say prioritize RG and the Tackles over him.

    Denver is not in a position to continually be rotating Oline based on cost.
