    In a vacuum perhaps- but never going to happen when the GM in question is an organizational/regional icon, and scaled the mountaintop as recently as February 2016. Elway was always going to get a ton...

    Regardless of the recent ascension of Lock (and some of the other productive young players)- no way Elway was ever getting “fired” IMHO. His name, “goodwill”, and iconic history with the franchise is...

    One thing to love about Elway (IMHO) is that if he feels he’s close- he’ll spare nothing to get Denver a championship. Just like Mr. Bowlen...

    I will always support Elway. Tireless worker with a certain standard of excellence and competitiveness that you simply can’t “bottle”. Does he make mistakes (sometimes spectacular)? Yes. Of course....

    Lock will hit a wall sometime (probably next year) once there’s enough tape on him and DCs adjust their schemes. That said- I am confident he has the mental make-up, and natural gifts to push through...

    Yep. I remember those. If I’m not mistaken we dropped both those games (OAK really wrecked us).

    Despite an admittedly uneven performance from Lock we still ended up with 23 points (and could have been more w/Hamilton play)- which qualifies as a minor miracle with our “pop gun” offense. Honestly...

    Thanks for the responses guys. Some interesting perspectives there. Definitely get the tradition of the orange- and the resistance to changing it. Going back to blue just seems like a minor way to...

    Blue Jerseys?

    Maybe it’s because we’re 2-0 in them this year- but I’m really digging the blue jerseys- especially with the white pants for the full on “late 90s” glory days look.

    How would people feel about...

    C’mon man. Say what you will but Elway reemphasized defense, and went with Kubiak (two of the biggest “non-Manning” moves you could imagine) thereby sending Manning out with a ring. It was a mutually...

    All I know is that we got ourselves a young gunslinger who’s already bucking at the shackles, and taking charge on the field when it matters. There will be some ugly days over the next 20 games- but...

    Build around Lock. He’s the quintessential Shanahan/Kubiak “Denver” QB. Size. Power arm. Mobile. Basically a “do over” on a young Cutler.

    Flacco is no great shakes obviously- but the o-line is completely non-competitive. 5 orange turnstiles.

    I was assuming as Trustee Ellis could insist on placing someone over Elway in the interest of protecting the “asset value” of the Trust. Does he not have that kind of pull (honestly don’t know)?
