If Von Miller shouldn’t be on this workforce in 2019 and Case Keenum is, I’ll boycott the Broncos till the stupidity is cured.
Steven, loyal to No. 58
Kiz: Miller celebrates his 30th birthday in March. The place did the time go? Right here’s the deal: Except you suppose the Broncos can return to the Tremendous Bowl within the subsequent two years, John Elway should think about buying and selling Miller for draft picks whereas he’s nonetheless in his prime, irrespective of how a lot that concept would possibly irritate you or the Vonster’s mom. However right here’s the rub: How a lot can a veteran linebacker with a salary-cap hit of $25 million really fetch in commerce? I’m afraid the market may not be as enticing as Elway would possibly suppose … or like.
It doesn’t should take lengthy to rebuild within the NFL. The Broncos stunk in 2010. Had I mentioned again then that Peyton Manning would lead Denver to the AFC’s No. 1 playoff seed in 2012, I’d’ve been thrown within the asylum. Manning ain’t strolling via that door once more, however you by no means know what can occur. It may well change shortly.
Jason, season-ticket holder
Kiz: In a span of 11 months from the 2011 NFL draft till Manning signed as a free agent in March 2012, the Broncos added an edge-rusher with Corridor of Fame expertise (Miller) and a future Corridor of Fame quarterback. When you consider Bradley Chubb is a Corridor of Fame edge-rusher, then the Broncos are midway again to championship competition. Now for the robust half: Who’s your selection for the subsequent franchise QB to stroll via the doorways at Dove Valley Headquarters?
Do you see the Broncos’ possession snafu getting cleared up earlier than subsequent season?
Larry, soap-opera fan
Kiz: I shall be shocked if Brittany Bowlen doesn’t be part of the entrance workplace someday throughout 2019. If president Joe Ellis fails to make that transfer, he’s asking for hassle.
It gained’t matter who coaches the Broncos subsequent season. They should eliminate the core drawback, Elway and his sidekick, Matt Russell. You must have realized this earlier, Kiz. You have been clamoring all season for Vance Joseph to go, nevertheless it wouldn’t have mattered if Invoice Belichick have been the coach in Denver. Elway shouldn’t be the precise man.
Vince, assigning blame
Kiz: Elway is the king of the comeback. Let’s see if Outdated No. 7 has yet another left in him.
When you’re discouraged because the Broncos flip again the clock (once more) as a substitute of going fashionable and progressive, tune within the Nuggets, who’re redefining offensive basketball with Nikola Jokic.
Sidney, huge dawg
Kiz: If the Nuggets keep wholesome, they’re a lock to be among the many prime 4 playoff seeds within the West. My projection for the opposite three? Golden State, Oklahoma Metropolis and Houston. The large query: What number of of these groups can Denver beat out within the closing standings?
And as we speak’s parting shot must be plastered on a billboard on the Interstate 25 and Sixth Avenue interchange, don’t you suppose?
