    I love John, it was a hell of a ride but he needs to step down so we don't have to do it for him

    Truthfully, we have ZERO position groups that are built for success for more than two years. That is terrifying!
    The roster is pretty thin across the board with no depth. Couple that with a questionable coaching carousel and we have a disaster.

    Ok you’re right. I think we could use some help in areas other than just QB however.

    I think the o-line is an area of the team on a upswing. They played pretty dang good today against a group that had NINE sacks last week.
    Yes he does, but I can't imagine him doing so without consulting the Bowlen family first.

    No. Ellis can hire a headhunter firm to guide the GM search. Ellis hasn’t fired him because Broncos Country hasn’t yet roundly united in the agreement Elway has failed. We are almost there.
    Good luck with that.

    Some around here will never admit to anything that could tarnish Elway's reputation as a GM, which is silly seeing as it's already pretty damn bad if you're to go by what's been said by fans of other teams for the past few seasons.

    Not speaking from direct knowledge, but from the stuff I read and listen to it really sounds like Ellis really doesn't want to be involved in any of the football decisions.

    Need some input: Is there any chance that the current ownership will part ways with Elway, or are we stuck with him because no one else has much of a say?

    Oh man this team has weaknesses galore.

    Corner, O-line, run defense, special teams - you name it.

    Jacksonville figures that out at half time and took advantage of several positional mismatches.

    We aren’t going anywhere.

    I was at todays game. Very frustrating.

They can do whatever, wait until the end of the game, and walk down the field and score as many points as they need to win. Fire Elway, and hire someone with only one directive: find a captain for the defense. Someone willing to kick ass and intimidate others.

    My man Pat Bowlen is rolling in his grave watching this team. Speaking of him I really thought the team would come out and play hard out of respect for Bowlen being in the HOF but we have been bad...not just a little we been really bad.

    Rebuild needs to come...and fast

    But I agree - Elway needs to be fired or be smart enough to step down.
    Agreed. It’s a big part of why I’m nervous about the future.
