Thursday because new. Gm is now. And you're ready to see what george peyton will do with this broncos football roster and organization and the personnel side. Does he keep things similar. Does you know his own guys. You me ask. Rick spielman biking's gm coming up in a little bit. Do you expect. George will try to steal some guys from minneapolis. So we'll see how he feels out of staffy as one big job to fill and he may create other jobs but his right hand man whether that's a called. Vp of personnel bp of player personnel assistant gm called all of the above he had those two titles vp of player personnel and assistant gm the last eight years in minneapolis. But i don't think it was until maybe this past offseason. That matt russell was promoted to vice president of player personnel before that he was as director of player personnel. Even though his job didn't change it all just gotta title bumping likely more cash. So we'll see how how it all shakes out. I wanted you to get to know. George peyton and was tipped off by somebody else. That knows george really. Well that said. Sam farmer. The great writer for the l. a. times covered the nfl forever. He was not inducted but honored at the hall of fame last year. When mr bean champ bailey went in he was given the dick mccann award which goes to an outstanding sports writer that they put in the hall of fame every year. They honor every year and he's just a good guy every time he comes to town. He's always gracious with his time to talk to me about whatever. If i ever have a question and hit him up always good to get back to me but he grew up around. George patton's brothers. And and is known. George peyton since he was a little kid basically so i thought who better to get than a guy that's honored by the hall of fame. That's as good football writer as there isn and good to talk to you then then sam farmer so i'm going to get out of the way and let sam well. Obviously i talked to sam in this interview. But i'm gonna let you hear from sam about george pain because he has some pretty good insight. One other thing about george peyton. I may grab this sound tomorrow. But you go to the broncos social channels and they conducted a seven minute interview with george peyton getting to know him a little bit better so You can find it at their twitter facebook. Obviously on their website Maybe that'll be here tomorrow to you Least i'll i'll pull a little bit of that but wanted Wanted you to get to know him a little bit better from people that know him. So you're going to hear from sam farmer and then we had a conference call with vikings. Gm spielman who could not be more abusive in his praise of george payton a guy that he brought to minnesota after they worked together in both chicago and miami. And so it's a. It's a guy that they've been together for nearly two decades. I believe working side by side and it was really cool of rick spielman to talk with us to give us this much time and and so you'll hear him talk to to denver media about how much he he loves and appreciates george peyton and clearly how much he's gonna miss him. But first let's hear from la times esteemed pro football writer sam farmer. You can follow sam on twitter. Of course. he's one of the great twitter followers not does in the nfl. I think he's pretty funny In general but sam twitter twitter handle is at la times farmer at l. a. times farmer. Here's my talk with great. Sam farmer sam. This business is all about cultivating sources. But very rarely. Do you think that someone you went to high school with grew up with their spouse. Their older brother will become an nfl gm. I imagine decades ago when you got into this business. So how cool is it. That george payton who i imagine and you can tell me how long you've really known him is finally taking this this next step in. What's been a pretty remarkable career listening to listen to rick. Spielman talk about him to us. Yes and thanks for having me on brandon i I think it's really neat. I'm i'm really proud of a guy. I've known george since Let's see he was a freshman in high school. I was a senior locking in high school. That was back in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and of course i was much closer with his brothers his oldest brother john and frank. I'm from three boys to the youngest. Three boys georgia's the august three boys. Although they have a sister. I should have had but You know. I didn't really get to know him until as as a person until i was covering the league and he was back in the league because george went off to ucla transferral Which is more football. School can yada played. There was a good quarterback and corner than went to ucla and He was sort of the wedge. Buster for ucla. Really tough guy. His brothers tough to they play university. Utah john was an all conference defensive. Tackle and and frank played safety there but So i knew. I remember george vi. Now he's a freshman. I'm senior and you're not. We don't have a close friendship But then after college he went to europe. He went to italy and play quarterback there in sort of an italian the american player on italian league And came back coached You didn't ask for a full resume. Great come on all right. This is what we want high school football. We went back to little coaches soften freshmen sophomores. They're and they're really started to surface this. This guy is super smart. Knows the game Knows the game from all angles. His dad was a coach. But the thing that has always struck me about george. And i've really gotten to know this in the Twenty six years. I've covered league is. He is super organized super on task Has a has a normal outlook. He's not You know on hundred percent football all the time or doesn't sorta geek out on it. But but he in other words. He's got like a balanced personality but he is meticulously organized. Knowledgeable you never catch him flat-footed he knows. And that's sort of the reputation the ass around the league. And he's the last decade he's been fielding offers to be gm's places he could have left a long time ago whether it was the rams the jets. He's right down to the wire and san francisco but minnesota would always do everything jump through every hoop to keep him. And that's how you can tell how valuable he was an integral to what the Rick spielman was doing in minnesota. Even though he was the number two guy. He came up a from the dolphins to the the vikings and he's been in minnesota for at least last decade. But i did wonder what george just. Because i thought is minnesota's gonna keep upping the ante to keep him and at some point. Is the jam window going close and you know when denver came around. I just think they really made him feel totally wanted and And appreciate what he brings. He's a rare find for them. And i think it's kind of a coup that the broncos rival and what's that say about the broncos till you look at some of the openings in houston. I get that it's already filled but with shawn watson. assuming he wasn't mad look pretty attractive. Jacksonville with the number one pick looks attractive and i know that he wasn't necessarily on that list. I guess i'm talking. In general terms with plenty of people. Sell the broncos ownership situation. Don't know if drew lock. He got a quarterback situation. Some veterans you've got to figure out a. Why do you think denver was the right fit for george. Well i think you also have to look at sort of the the history of the organization you have to look at the city. You have to look at the lifestyle. You know George in and his wife. Barb i mean they have kids and and you think about where do we wanna raise our family or continue to raise family. And what kind of lifestyle do we want. Because that's part of the equation too. So you know a place you know might not appeal to you and you really have to factor that in as well particularly when you can be selective like george and say what now. I don't want that job and he's turned down. Gm jobs and four. We really like our life in minnesota. So part of that is that and also you look at the history of the the broncos i think the broncos are a crown jewel organization in the league and It's different than tennessee. Or if you're jacksonville or you know it's it's just different. It's a handful of organizations that you say look look at the history look at the fan base look at the place to live quality of life and and you also look up and down that roster and say can we built something here. Is this something that we can fix. And improve on and I think he saw that. And probably you know the relationship with john elway. You know what he saw. Joe ellis and the relationship. There badly as a franchise. Want me or am. I just the sort of flavor of the month. All of those things are are factors. I'm sure george factored in when he made the decision. So you've been doing this like you said twenty six years you're now rightfully so in the hall of fame as a winner the dick mccann award That's given to great football writer so you've been around the game long time it's crazy to me that every single person i've talked to from personnel people with other teams with people that have worked as coaches around george to some media people that i've talked to some pr folks. Nobody has a bad word to say about them. And that's hard to come by really in any walk of life but certainly in the nfl. Why why is that the case with george. I get that you've known him a lot longer. But i imagine you've come across people that don't know your history and they're just talking 'cause you bumped into them you. Oh i was talking to george payton. Yeah he's richmond's assistant. Maybe at the combine or something like that. Why do you think that is that. He's so highly regarded as a person you know and part of it gets back to what i was saying about. He's a balanced guy. He's he's the guy who serious about his work and he is he is super knowledgeable and a guy who is very focused and organized. But he's also the type of guy who is charismatic and a leader and probably what got him into the nfl first place because he was a high school assistant coach. Who is coaching freshman. Sophomore how do you make a sophomore is. How do you make a jump like that to the chicago bears. I think they recognized right away that this guy has charisma and he has leadership qualities and that can be developed and have been developed over the years and one of the things george and we all know somebody like this. But if you talk to people about george i bet i could name twenty people inside and outside the league would say george payton's my best friend and it says something about a guy who can make you feel like you know what you're my best friend And then and then there's a long line of people who would who would say the exact same thing and it's just a personality. So i i think there's that about george that he's just really highly regarded as a guy and his football acumen is unimpeachable. You know he just. He knows football. He knows players. He knows the game. He played the game He was a walk on at ucla. Who wound up being the wedge buster on the on the kicking team so i mean at one hundred and eighty pounds so he's not these very scrappy and You know that's sort of the The charisma of the guy. And it's probably what's gotten him to where he is right. Now i have for you to broaden and a little bit league wide In rick spielman said this is well that with there being so many openings. He thought that this might. Finally the george takes a job in the broncos actually beat out rick's brother chris In detroit who at least had strong interest in in georgia early in this process. But you've covered legal time. Can you remember when there were six or seven. Gm openings in a year doesn't seem like it happens even over multiple years where these jobs open up. Yeah i mean it speaks to the sort of the high expectations The fact that that The combative competitive balance and league is such that people believe every year that their team should at least be in the playoffs and potentially should be winning the super bowl and when that isn't achieved There's just not that much patience for So i think owners feel the pressure and owners apply the pressure and they peel through these people in these physicians but You know so. I just think that this might be just sort of a statistical anomaly. There so many available jobs right now but Also we might just be seeing that sort of that turnover the where you know. This might be just one of those years. Where there's a seismic shift in jobs come open and and these jobs are held for the next five or six years. And i hope in the case of george. That's the case. I hope that he is able to sort of realized that the success that the broncos have had over the years and you know sort of exact the potential of this this franchise because you look and look at that offense and the young players on offense and In the division wide there's real opportunity there with It's a great division. But i could see the broncos rising up again. And i think as a sports writer. We'd all love to see that because denver's a fun place to come to these. I think the league's a better place. When the broncos are good team when i was. I always like to point point out that even though john elway was the quarterback here for sixteen years he only one won the division seven times. Even though patrick mahomes has just won his third and three tries it's not an inevitability. I know down the road from you. Just a herbert certainly can have something to say about it. That kid follows up the way he played this year. So it's exciting whether it's drew lock or paint finds the next guy I know that everybody around here. As as we've done more research on george payton in the last ten days. I think Have gotten really excited. And then hearing all glowing. Words has been You know i think. Really cool for for broncos fans and get fired up for some new blood not that. They don't love john. Elway looking the love john elway till the day they die right until the day he passes and then well beyond but i know you have coming here so i imagine you'll come a few more times now that you've got a buddy you calling the shots here. Well i look forward to that and it'll be fun to see what he doesn't denver and i think he'll be embraced. Their people alike The fingerprint thumbprint he puts on that organization Because he's been successful everywhere. He's been so whether that immediately you know plays out in terms of the win. Loss record will see but You know i think he's he's highly regarded. And there's there are lots of reasons why well you're highly regarded. I always appreciate when you give me time. It's always great. Senior won't be this year at the super bowl. Maybe you're one of the forty five people to actually get in the press box. But i didn't wanna fly to all the way to tampa to sit in a convention center and watch the game on tv so hopefully down the road. I'm gonna go to the game every day. i'm thinking why am i going to the y. How they don't wanna break my string. There you go well. Hopefully we'll see you in denver when everything gets back to normal. I really appreciate the time. The inside about george peyton. Thanks so much great talking to you. Brennan i guarantee you. That is the only place. You're gonna find out that much about. George payton in detail because i would like i said it was tipped off that sam farmer has no george payton as you heard sam say since he was a freshman in high school and group with his brothers and his followed them and stayed in touch clearly throughout georgia's session as an nfl executive and now as he takes on this big job. You also heard. Sam talk about the broncos and and the talent and why. George chose denver and lifestyle. Anybody i know everybody listens. Podcast doesn't live here for various reasons but most you do and so it's always fun we used to do. This feels like all the time of the day on the radio. We talked about how great living denver too much living in denver. You know how great it is live in denver and george peyton and his wife and two kids old. Find that out soon as well. All right rick spielman has been a gm vice for a long long time and he brought he brought george with him after they were in both miami and chicago together but he has some great stuff to say about jordan's eye for talent and his approach to the job and in some anecdotes they're their working relationship and clearly there. Their friendship that extends well beyond a working relationship. Here's rick spielman talking with denver media earlier today on a conference call. I maybe if i could just open up on a few comments then i'd be more than happy to take questions Denver to me Got an incredible not only talented valuator. But incredible person what he stands for George started together back in nineteen ninety seven nineteen ninety eight when he was an intern in chicago and i was the pro director and when i left to go to miami a took me a year but i eventually got him a down to miami with me and then when i had the opportunity. Come up here minnesota. There was no question he was the number one person That that i had to have on my staff and took me here. But a year. After i got here i was able to be at him. the minnesota and you know Just what he's mad not only to this organization what he's meant to me personally I've been in business going on my thirty first year. And i give a lot of credit to george For being there being my sounding board being Someone who i i trusted not only on the business side when we're talking about everything but You know as a friend and probably my greatest daughter Was when he asked me to be his sunscreen. Godfather both When when bowe was born. So when i got the call from him that he was going to accept the job in denver It was amazing the emotions. I personally felt. I was so excited for him. Because he's there's no question. He is more than ready to run his own shop in the lead an organization with a historic historic club than that has a great tradition out in denver. But it's in the same sense. I'm moving probably besides my my brother. Chris my best friend Did i have in my closest friend. That i've had and i know he's been more More than prepared even before he finally took this opportunity Bit he could have been a gm any time and some of those interviews. But i know how selective he's been. I'm making sure that it was the right set. And there was no question when he called me. And i knew that the denver broncos were finally the right fit for george peyton. So i'll go ahead open up for questions. We'll start off with ryo. Helen from a rig. Appreciate you doing this with us today up. You mentioned george being selective through the years. Did you get a feeling last week that this was going to be a different kind of deal. When he started interviewing with the broncos. I you know i didn't know i know he enough. If he was going to take a job probably this year he was going to take it I know i've been through. This is as we've been through a lot of things together in a profession but a lot of things together personally Just because of how close we are as friends in. i consider him a brother But i knew the talks that we have had over the past couple weeks in where his mindset was. I was trying to prepare myself to be honest more than him. knowing the dismay with so many jobs opening up that this was the year that he was he was probably going to take a an opportunity. I knew it he such a man of integrity and such a high character person in an unbelievable family man that i knew he wasn't just going to take a job to say. Gm it had to be a very special place. And i think denver presented everything that he was looking for to leave here. Not only from the business side of the football side but also from family side as well as through. Got troy rank with abc. Affiliate rick thanks for joining us today. In talking to some of georgia's friends. They described him as a grinder. Kind of jim roope type account. Could you describe him in that way. And how did that manifest as you guys were so successful on the drought these past ten years to be able to have the patience to draft and develop which broncos country kind of eager to see some of those routes take hold here. Yeah we've like. I said i think it started back when he was an intern in chicago. And i was pro director at the time. And i remember That's how i was brought up through this business. And i know we get in here early and taught him and that's what i was taught you don't leave till the coaches leave In in the off season it even gets busier So but that's what makes george incredibly unique Is his work ethic. What do you want to call grinder. I know how much film that we watch together. I think the Out of all the years. We've been together probably that stick out to me. The most was last year with and him when the pandemic hit George moved into a hotel together for thirty days and got up in. That's all we did. We conducted our draft meetings After the draft meetings we would sit there and go through everything that we discussed today After they at Let's go ahead and do the board. We would sit there and play with the board. And what do we want to present to the scouts tomorrow into the coach's tomorrow of everything where we known so for me that was invaluable To have a person that i trusted so much that had the work ethic that he had That if he wasn't sure of something That we discussed in. I remember i went up to the back to the bed that night and i came back down. I forgot something and it was something we discuss. That he wants to serve and he was back down there watching tape again so Denver is getting an incredible talent evaluator. That an incredible town evaluator my opinion. Unless you're sitting there willing to do the work and do all the extra work that takes willing to look under every stone to find talent and georgia george does Another example i would give is because of all the covert protocol because there was no workhouse in the spring We were looking for a player in trusted him and in his staff in our department to find a guys and bring him to me in unless it on him well he came in and he had a youtube video of a guy working out on a beach that we eventually side Because that was the only thing we had now not that you were make personnel decisions on a guy working out on a beach on backpedals or catching the ball or anything. But that's the that's how far he will go to try to make sure we're getting the best town that we can to get in here and the player did ended up Ended up coming here and actually play for us late in the season next. We've got a mike klis affiliate and you said that you thought this would be the year. If george left that would be this year Why why do you say that that. This was the year for him and of all the places that he's flirted with our end. You know other teams have gone after implore wider broncos. I you know. I know the broncos from the outside and always respected john elway and always respected the ownership. There always respected how that organization is one of the best in the business From an outsider looking in Through my years of experience in this league at just felt that because there were so many. Gm jobs open this year. I don't think i've ever remember a year where so many. Gm jobs became open that there would be a right fit for. George was this year because of the the amount of jobs out there. And i know when we talked about it. We've in years past. We talk about all the organizations that he would go. You know interview with and decide whether to go or not go But i knew when we were talking about. The denver is one of the top organizations in this In this in the nfl. next one. jeff level rico. I'm curious what you would tell george what what is first month on. The job should look like what. What is your advice there for him. And how difficult will this be for you to fill that job. When yeah for for george i think you know. He's he's seen And he's seen so many so much that we've been through together And even you know when we started here where we started in miami and when he came in chicago. there's no one that's probably seen As much in in been exposed to as much as. I've exposed george to everything that goes on in his business. I know he has a specific plan on what he needs to get accomplished when he when he gets there and gets going. I know the you know. Free agency draft understanding the roster. I don't want to speak for him but he'll have a plan in place What needs to be done. And what needs to come to the forefront and the number one thing is always one You know the personnel. That's that's a lifeline of our organization Especially in the draft in we always big believers in in building our rosters through the draft. Hopefully you're doing a good enough job where you're hitting on your draft graphics and then those draft picks are the ones that you end up keeping an extending and not reading get into free agency and build your roster that way and we've had some success doing that here. I think george will carry a lot of those philosophies. But i also think george have some things that he wants to do differently and i'm excited for him because now although you know when we talk and put our plan together always had a big influence in a big input on what we've done in how we did things and now he's get a chance to run the show they are in. I'm anxious to see what he puts in place in some the ideas that he may have on on how to move forward andrew mason. Dnb are a rick looking back. What were some qualities. They chore showed in the early days when you knew him even back to that intern year. That stuck out and set him on the path to where he is now the character and who and what he stands for as a person what he stands for. Maui family man We are very similar in Those regards. I know if you know who that person is in what he what. His character is That that he's going to have a great chance to be successful in this business. But i think the other thing was and i tell people this is in the young scouts especially is you. Don't become a great evaluator. You know you're one because you don't know how that player is going to be three years from now and you can't go and read it in a book. He can't take it at a at a class at university The only way that you become a very good talent evaluator is following the draft glasses urine. You're out going back to assess where you did good. Why did that work where you failed. Why that work in reassess wide failed in it. Make sure you don't make those same mistakes again. But you can't do that until you actually go through all those experiences and that's why i think georgia's so prepared for this is he's been through so many experiences with many side by side through all the trades we have done through different acquisitions through the draft Everything happened for mehta's e you know. My philosophy is always been very active. Trading up and down on draft a accumulating big last year. we ended up with fifteen draft picks He was a critical part of leading. Those of trades along with rob brzezinski. Are our cap guy But what was unique. Is we've worked together so long. It's like you almost don't have to even say anything. You just look at each other. You know and he knows and he knows what i'm thinking. I know what he's thinking in is just was it was so smooth on how we've been able to operate through that and i know You know the other thing that really sticks out to me about george in his personality is how well respected. He is amongst coaches and how he relates to the coaches and builds their trust and builds a relationship with the coaches. I don't know how many times i've walked past his office. In ic- coaches sitting there on just with him And or him down in in in coaches office just sitting there talking. Football talking you know. What are we looking for Just talking his friends and he has a incredible or about him that he's a great listener in the relationships that he builds especially with the coaching staff is pretty unique The athletic His relationship with with coaches. You answer that question for me. I'll ask you when you worked with him early on. He was only a few years removed from from kind of having that Overseas football which is kind of a unique thing among nfl executives. Did you ever talk to him about what that experience was yet. Ebony intel on that the me and my wife went on a couple of years ago we went over on one of those european river cruises. And i told him that i did lay I did find a small statue wherever he played for pizza. Whatever the heck it was Where he played. But now we've had bleeding in georgia talked about about everything in life. it never experienced. We've had growing up to him. Employees over in italy and and Australian austria in some of those areas that he visited and it was just kinda interesting because of that experience of not only playing over there but also probably he was a player and coach probably doing both But yeah no we always get it him about a nice picture of this row little little statue there that found georgia statue for the big imprinted data over here and european american football brandon krisztal koa area. Rick thanks thanks for doing this. A couple of throw at you. You mentioned. He's like a brother to you. Well one of the job he's looking at what was actually involving your real life brother. So did you think detroit had had a good shot to land with chris and then when you have good people. They often get looked at other places. Are you worried. Or is there an unwritten rule. That jordan going to take too many people from your building and try to them to denver. While there's rules in place On on restrictions on on movement. I know there's some new roles this year But you know Putting this staff together here and the people that we have are working in this building not only on personnel side but almost football upside. I think are credibly talented. And it'll give me an opportunity As we go forward and we get into our roster planning and get into free agency planning and getting to our draft meetings and All all that we have facing us ahead to make Decisions how we're going to get better moving forward I have a truly believe incredible group of people that are not only very good at what they do but also I think the culture that we've created here That how close everybody as and we all come from different backgrounds Different philosophies on things but it's amazing when you can get a group of people together that can set their egos side. It have no political be involved in just. Everybody understands their roles and responsibilities and just wants to work for each other. And i think that's the thing that you see successful teams do on the field. Is you try to get the most talented guys out there. But you're trying. Put those guys on the field that actually truly care about each other because in the end. Those are the guys out there. Fighting on sundays for each other to Through all the adversities that they go through during the season. And that's the type locker room that you're trying to put together that you have enough guys that care enough about each other that when versity does hit the The you know they're going to bond together and they're not going to divide in that locker room. And i think we tried to create that same philosophy on how we built up front office of whether it's our colleague side pro side everything from mehta's z from trainers all the way through The operation side and get a group of people together and we've added people went through the interview process. We had a pretty good idea of if that person would fit with what we feel. Our culture here is. And i know george has a great sense of that and i imagine once it gets us feet wet and gets going there that he'll create that same culture Out in denver as time for a few more next on eric. Delilah denver broncos dot com. Thanks for doing this. Appreciate this touches on that a little bit but curious from a leadership perspective. I think he'll george will handle kind of guiding a front office staff. With all the different situations you encounter. Maybe once his leadership style in your eyes. I think his leadership style. I think that's why we work so well together. Were little bit opposites I think he is not that. I'm not a good listener. So don't please don't turn away. But i think he is going to be very open minded. I think From how we operated here. I think everybody has to have a voice in the decisions that you're making. I think that when people feel they're part of the decision whether they agree or disagree but they felt they had their say on on their opinion. And then it's the by getting to buy in on that final decision and i think georgia's philosophy is very similar to that. I mean i don't want again. Put words in georgia's mouth. But i know he will take a lot of input from a lot of people It is a great listener. He is an even keeled demeanor to the as degree nothing rattles his cage And his is a lot of the things that we been through. He's been a guiding force as far as keeping everything com Especially in situations. When adversity does it. And i know when i first got my opportunity You're going to have some growing pains. you're going to have to learn through experiences and to me on the way you earn is going through those experiences and understanding what you did well like i referred to earlier. Ed boyd. really. Screw up here. How could i have done that differently. So that situation comes up again. And i think george as a lot of those similar traits will do kyle newman with the denver post ball by guman going. Kyle eric. Quick ones for a first of all. You mentioned all the experience on draft day. You have with george. What's it gonna be like. Come april so you know maybe get a call from him or or beyond the other side of the table. Not working with him going forward now. It'll be weird. I mean to be honest with the. I called A zoom meeting yesterday with all our football op side of the building It had george. Get on there. And i think it was a very emotional goodbye With everybody on their in. George is not a man of a lot of words But this first time. I think i've ever heard him speak for fifteen minutes straight So but it's going to be there. It's going to be different. You know and and i know. I'm going to have to have people here that are going to have to step up and fill you know those shoes at george. The george Filled in that's on draft day. That's gone if i meant draft meetings and he's meeting with the pro scouts and kinda get the free agency board set up before we come back together Those are the things that you know. I knew i never had to worry about. Because i knew it was all going to be taken care of and i was able to come in at the end on a lot of the things Just because i've got pulled in different direction. But i always knew i never had to worry that everything was going to be set ready to go as we made. Try to come up with our final planning to make our decisions. And but i do believe i do have people currently on my staff That are that are capable of doing that. And i'm looking forward to. You know to see those those people at work and to To give them an opportunity to step in it. But it's we've been together so long here. I mean i think bobby correct me wrong. I think i'm going on my sixteenth year here in minnesota and you know a lot of people have had opportunities to leave especially on personnel side but estate state here and they get lost terence gray who was a very bright young scout. That's the Director up with the buffalo bills right now But for the most part we've had some other play people personnel that had opportunities maybe take directors roles but decided to stay here in the biggest part of that is because i know they know how important they are part of this process when i know george was involved in the formation of the an apartment. What is he brings to the table in that and just in terms of any other innovative approaches to gain today. He's you know. That's what. I've always kinda i've always wanted to be. I think he is outside the box. Thinker and their ways we can create headed advantages. All within so is located analytics because they think our analytics department has done an incredible job of how dave that's part of our process on how draft now it's not the final answer but it gives us some direction in some tiebreaker methods and i have to three variant incredibly intelligent people that can sit there and come up with all these different algorithms in. What's important not important at each position. How you a forty time to how self efficacy a psychological tests. How does that all tie into that position so But george george did oversee that department as we put it together in that became a big role. And i think it's really grown over. The last five or six years for us is becoming a another tool that you that that helps you make the best decisions possible and i think george will try to implement a lot of the things that a lot of the baby outside the box thinking That that we were able to do in create here on air sports writer. Don't think it's coming through. Take your had voted to ask you a question. Okay rick it's my understanding. There's a lot of consensus building in that organization when it comes to personnel. You are the one who makes the final decision. Can you give us some specific examples. Were george banged the table for somebody influence your decision. You took that guy who turned out to be great our believe all those decisions internally here i will not go down that road i just know it a no Is that we do enough in grind hard enough to get everybody on the same page. So there's going to be disagreements personnel. one person. A coach might not like a player but a scout likes a player scout hates the player and a coach loves the player but there is a way in the way we do things that eventually we get to the end result. Where everybody's on the same page. And i think that's part of the process into me. That's the most important part of the process is where you start Especially in your draft process as you start to put everybody's opinions together in whether disagreements than what is your method of get everybody on the same page so when you do select or not snuck that player that everybody is in agreement on that and i think that's the unique part of this. Business is hard as it is. But i think also the people that you work with because in the end. It's not my rick spielman player. George payton's players the minnesota vikings player and week went through our processes as long as hard as they. Ar to get to that end result in once. We picked that player as a minnesota viking player. Thanks for taking the time to join a local media. Very much appreciated. Thanks guys nice to talk to you guys instead of the guys up here for a change. I don't think. I understand how much george peyton means to rick spielman. It was very obvious from the get go from his opening statement until the end and really really nice to say how much you enjoy talking with us so it was. It was cool whenever you talked to. Gm from another team especially in a in a formal setting. It's actually a lot of times more beneficial in a non Choreograph setting but That was cool. A residue cooler the vikings and they're right pr staff and bob hagan. Who runs our department there to make available to so we really really cool And i think you learn a little more about george painting. Which was the goal tomorrow. It'll be a football friday. So we'll look ahead to the playoff weekend and george payton's payton's arrival here on saturday. Monday of courses holiday. Tuesday is when we will meet george payton so I appreciate you. Listen and getting to know george peyton a little bit more. And we'll catch you next time. On the broncos daily podcast.

B.I.G. Interview | Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos on Off Season News

"Hey it's andrew bogusch from cbs sports radio. You're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfi just think the broncos are doing this on purpose. Even outside the draft and free agency and aaron rodgers. Every week there's some gigantic news surrounding denver. Which is why it's great for us. Because we have zak. Stevens of denver. Broncos ac my friend a lot of news last week withdrawn james. Stuff that the sean hamilton stuff. And i wanna get into that but pretty significant announcement today by the denver broncos. Yeah pretty significant amount announcement and brady just like you said i love it this job security for me with the you know. The broncos always being in the news really is true that there's That the broncos. There's always something going on and today some very cool news brady of course the broncos announcing that they've hired kelly klein is their executive director of football ops and special adviser to george payton as the general manager and kelly is believed to be the highest ranking woman in scouting and nfl history. So a big move for the broncos in terms of just how important position this is also a historical move at the exact same time since he's already got that history to with george payton who i believe has really done a fantastic job so just adding someone that he believes is true as in your in his words what you tweeted kelly's a rising star in the nfl. Yeah and not only does george peyton is doors. Payton on the record saying that but also rick spielman. Another general manager is also on the record saying that kelly is the rising stars. Do you have to. Nfl general managers calling her rising star. And the thing that blows my mind here It brady is that kelly graduated from college in two thousand thirteen. So it's not like she's been around for you know thirty years making her wet no she. She's been around the nfl for less than a decade and she's already the assistant And pretty much. This is george payton's You know wh right hand woman now and that tells me just you know how big of a role this is. She's going to be in charge. And overseeing the video and equipment department and also be involved in in player evaluation for agency prep draft grab And pro and college scouting as well. So i mean this is pretty much a step below the general manager here brady and it's not crazy to say that she could very well be on her way to being the first general men the first female general manager in the nfl some point how about that. I mean what a great story to and again. This is a broncos. Weak spot yes. They've had some stuff workout. Some good draft picks in free agency but collectively zach. They've missed on for free agency often. Maybe injuries things just don't work out. draft picks collectively again. You know we're not we're not talking about even the even the guys in the first round. We're not talking about some of the best players in the league so this is an area where they definitely need to address and if if she she can work out a long which peyton man it would be great to see. For the broncos going forward it would be and this is the first big move. George payton has made not just because of the historical implications but also brady george. Payton took a step back after he was hired and said i'm not gonna change anything with this personnel department. I'm not gonna do a thing. I'm gonna see what here in denver and then make my moves after the draft and this is the first move that's made so obviously from a historical standpoint. It's very cool. But also this is a huge move when it just comes to football as well zak stevens joining us from dnv broncos. Yes a huge move. I love it. I love your follow up on our. I loved your tweets about everything. I'm looking forward to more of your thoughts on this. Move but zach. Let's go back even to last week with john. James the sean hamilton thing to this story continues to just pick up more. And more steam as we go now. John james believed to be filing a grievance against the broncos. He tweeted out something basically against the nfl. Pa said hey you know what if you're gonna advisors to come up with a game plan this whole thing man. It just seems like such a train wreck know. It's fine idea. I suppose with the nfl pa trying to put out this protest so to speak but what was the plan. What was the plan to help out these players and We're finding out zack. That there really a great plan in place yeah. It really seems like there wasn't much of a plan at all brady. And here's the thing. Is i wish that the nfl would protect these guys Win they're working out offsite regardless of if there's going on or not because this is the exact same thing if there wasn't a holdout but a guy who's just working out on his own saturday and get off site within the team isn't obligated to protect them. That's how it's always been so. This goes beyond just the holdout. I wished the. Nfl would protect their players in situations like that but brady. It's the nfl pa job to negotiate that in their contracts when they create that cba the nfl. Pa did not do that last year. So this is a big flop on the nfl. Pa it doesn't certainly doesn't look good for the nfl as well by not protecting their players but the nfl pa after not a negotiating that last year in the now they're coming out and saying okay now we need you to do this in the nfl. What do you mean. You didn't negotiate that you could give us something last year if we're if we're going to give you this so it's a really bad situation especially with the broncos being hit the hardest really i mean the the two biggest injuries with they sean And john james. Coming with the broncos and i it's tough so now you see a lot of people and a lot of players. The majority of the players today brady are showing up for phase two of the offseason workout program because once guys are in the building they're protected. This is such an interesting dynamic too when look at everything you know what. What is the endgame here. i'm with you. I want my players to work out right. I want them to be as fit as possible. I don't want them to lose any ground lifting and cutting and working on all those things you want to ultimately go year round if you wanna be the best. That's what we're always told is that athletes never really stop. Maybe they take a week off or something But at the same time do they need to be at the facility to what what do you think the middle ground will be next time around. They do it when they do sit at the table because that might be the first thing to come up i it very well may be and i think what the nfl pa is trying to do here is. They're trying to shorten the ten week off season workout program which runs from april until the middle of june. They're trying to shorten it. They're really trying to get rid of it but that's not going to happen so i think what they're trying to do is shorten it to just ot as and when we talk about oh ta that can sometimes get confused with the entire offseason workout program but t. as really the last four weeks it's the last month when they're actually practicing and i think that's what the nfl is trying to do is say. Let us get away from the other six weeks where we're just working out. We can work out on our own. We can work out in florida. We can work out with our own people around the world and that's what the nfl pa pushing for but then in order for them to to knock that off they're also going to the nfl to protect them when they're not working out. So what we may see a compromise where you know if players are working out doing approved workouts from their teams at off site locations. Then they're protected but they may not protect them. If they're you know skiing in the alps or doing other activities but i think that's where we'll find middle ground brady. I don't know if we're going to be finding middle ground until there's a new cba which isn't free. you know another decade. I'm with you. I don't know where where they're gonna fight because even even then you know you're gonna ask managers coaches scouts to to to basically that the players are are working out as hard as they believe. Or what have you on that but to me. There's so much gray area with this. And yeah i'm with you. I don't know how you kind of come to the middle on this. Yeah i i totally agree. But it's something that Is going to be a big talking point. Now we see today the nfl pa coming out with push back for to to the broncos specifically saying how important it is that the broncos take care of john james and brady every indication is that the broncos are not going to pay john james that money And set a precedent there. And i think that's a big reason. Why you're seeing over seventy broncos show up to face to today. I'll well this'll be hall very interesting. That's a big story. The ongoing aaron rodgers stuff continues to be the story zac. What's the what's zakho meter telling us today. On there and rodgers situation what takes another hit over the weekend. I believe someone Someone close to Close to the packers said that if the packers were to trade aaron rodgers they would want a quarterback in return. And i've said this whole time brady. That's what the broncos don't wanna hear what the broncos won a here is that the packers love jordan love the rolling with him as their quarterback one and they just want every piece to surround him because the broncos have pieces they have pass rushers. They have wide receivers. They have draft picks. They don't have a sexy quarterback to give. And so you look at the other teams that have been on aaron rodgers wishlist the oakland or the las vegas raiders. Would derek carr. That's way better. That derek cars way better than what the broncos can offer and then you also look at trae lance out there in san francisco san francisco would be willing to move on from him. That's a huge piece. The third overall pick maybe one of the guys with with the highest upside that we've seen in the draft in a very long time. The broncos can't compete with that and so that takes a hit if the packers do wanna quarterback in return because if they get teddy bridgewater that means that the packers love jordan love and just one a veteran. They're with them if they get drew lock. Well that's you know. They're they're viewing him as a backup. Potential project in order to be a starter. But those other two quarterbacks i mentioned those are guys that you're building your organization around something that the broncos can't compete with so that's why it's taking a little hit today and what's interesting about the drew lock thing and again. Last year obviously erased any of that one from green bay but they were interested in drew drew. Lock two years ago so if it wasn't for last season if he would have had just like maybe an average season i think the talk would be going crazy right now because greece had that interest but because drew lock season so bad all all those hopes and dreams are are out the window and when that be something is if drew lock was viewed as a big piece in the straight. And then you're talking about maybe you're trading. Two first round picks drew lock. And that's it instead of three first round picks a couple of second round picks bradley chubb and or jerry jeudy for aaron rodgers and so if this was one year ago when drew lock just went four and one when he had seven touchdowns and three interceptions. That's when his or his value was as high as it could be. And like you said now brady. Unfortunately it's not very high. This is going to be a very interesting ongoing saga here. But the hits keep coming in if rodgers is to be moved your rights act does kind of feel like it's going to go somewhere. How the question is i. Suppose it where's green bay. They feel do they feel like all right. We lose aaron rodgers. But if we get a derek carr kind of situation there we feel like we can still be a contender at that point. Yeah yeah that. That's exactly where they'd be themselves with a derek art. And i think that's why. Derek car is so appealing not only. Because he's the guy that the top twelve quarterback and if you have a good team around him he will definitely make the playoffs but also his contract is very team friendly. After this year. I believe the packers could cut him in two thousand twenty two and there's zero dead cap or they could re signed him to a big deal. I mean you. You can have him for your quarterback for the next eight years or you can have your quarterback for one year and let's say jordan love develops nicely behind him. Move on from him after this. You're no harm no foul and there you go. You have your future with jordan love. It's a continues to be fun to talk about Maybe not the best news for broncos fans today for from zacks steven if you were running. Aaron rodgers for the broncos. That's what the zakho meters telling us this week and he was asked my friend. What do you work for. So we can check out l. breaking down rookie minicamp and not just what happened because not much happened this past weekend. Where these rookie stand brady and just how much you can expect from them. Because after this weekend and talking to people. I think this class is actually going to have a little more of an impact this year than i was expecting. It goes beyond. Just patrick sir. Ten inch ivanka williamsville. That's courage ing news. Yeah the number. Two by the way on patrick 'certain i don't know. Why is that. So appealing oh man. I love it. I think because you know. Patrick for ten the second then you just put the to one. He were college. I love that the nfl opened this up. And i love that pat taking advantage of that. I am a big fan of this pick. I know it's been controversial. And perhaps we'll be as more controversial than the bradley chubb. You know josh allen situation. But i i love this player. I really wanted this guy from the get go so i'm excited to see him on the field next season and hopefully he's a long-term type bronco me too and he really should be and brady. We keep hearing vicks say you know. He's a fifth or sixth defensive. Back maybe he is right now. During rookie minicamp wants training camp and wants the regular season roll around. He is not going to beat the broncos v or sixty of back. He's going to be on the field Pretty much every single. Play for the broncos defense zach. I cannot let you go. i don't know why i forgot to address this vic. Fangio fifty fifty coin flip saying is that not like has drew lock not at least earned to earn the recognition of being. Hey he's been with us longer. He knows the offense. He's our guy right now but yeah it's it's going be a competition or has he not earned that we are actually at fifty fifty. Yeah that i mean that. That's not good news for drew. Lock that he doesn't even get that nod to get the i snapped. I mean he said it's fifty fifty and we're giving drew the first the first nap because he's been here longer and denver but drew doesn't deserve or earn that in size Brady i think that is bad. News for for drew. And that's why i think Even more so that teddy is going to get the benefit of the doubt. If it's close they're going to go with teddy because he studied teddy vic knows what he's getting and look look at the ties to teddy bridgewater on this team. You got it pat shurmur. Who's a who worked with him. in minnesota. you have george payton who of course drafted him moved up back into the first round to select him in the first round when he was with minnesota and then vic is a guy that just all of last year said. Don't turn the ball over one talking about drew in the quarterback situation and that's what teddy does he doesn't turn the ball over as much as drew. So that's why just everything is pointing to teddy bridgewater right now. Exactly took you through the game as we often too often do my friend always appreciate your insight and by he survived yet again. Just keep you just keep taking these punches. All this news surrounding the broncos. Nobody better in my opinion coverage. Zac appreciate you. My friend will catch up with his soon. Thanks for having me on. Brady zak stevens. Dnv are broncos. Vic fangio says flip a coin drew lock. Teddy bridgewater flip a coin to see who's going to who's going to get the first snap shitty at least give him. Fifty one percent should have drew lock at least get that because he knows the offense. It's a tough debate. We'll talk about that more on the other side my game of the week. I'll let you know what that is coming up next. It's the whole show powered by biped energy a party. Northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. The block party wednesdays from four to ten pm.

July 15 Hour 1 Broncos Ownership News | Should Peyton Manning Work With Broncos?

"Welcome welcome in. It is the whole show powered by pd energy. We are as always live from the auto collision specialist studios. Glad to have you here on this thursday afternoon. Lot of as usual colefax. It's i know it's july fifteenth. It's supposed to be one of the worst days of the technically. Yeah this this today is supposed to be that day right. There's one baseball game but we're gonna make do. There's still a lot of news about so we'll get into that Throughout the day. Today i called. I talked about this yesterday. We had mark johnson on the voice of the buffs. I just have to get off my chest. My kiddo got stung by a wasp yesterday on the ear. He gets ear infections a lot. Kids get those right so was kind of just getting over something so it figured it stings him in the frigging My wife goes on a rampage. She puts them puts them down for his nap and she goes out and she scours everything she looks all over. The place finds this giant wasp nest. My kid has like a little playhouse out in the backyard. It's like right underneath the roof. So they were just been. We didn't see it. I didn't see it my wife videos it shows me. There's like thirty of them. Just hanging out right there. So being genius that she is. I would just go right in. Kill the kill the wasp center around it smash up the nest. And then i i go back to my life. My wife's devious and she's ruthless so she kills all of the wasp's nest and then she waits doesn't destroy the nest. She just waiting for an hour for wasps trickle back in more of them coming away. They're out doing what they're doing. You know earning a living and they come back home bam. She gets them again bam. She just stays out there for an hour killing wasp after wasp after wasp after wasp and then finally takes down the nest so yes. This is pretty genius hardcore. Yeah mama bear. She was not. She saw the wasp come down out of nowhere. Get my son gavin on the ear. She saw happen. She's like oh no and of course his ear swells up for about two hours and then it goes back down. When i got by the time i got home he was happy camper but yeah she's it's that time of year. Wasps are terrible. Colfax summertime love about the summer. You know it's not enough. I get sunburned on monday. It's hot all the time you know. I'm sweaty all the time you go outside. Get sunburn. there's mosquitoes. those are fun. they just attack my ankles. It's fantastic no matter how much spray i put on and then you have wasps. It's just it's not right. Yeah it's not an enjoyable time for me to lie is never fun. You're forgetting all the good things family and friends being outside barbecue. See them in the women. S swimming's pretty fun fireworks. Yeah i mean. Fireworks are cool. Yeah yeah it's kind of over now though ryan you can fire works anytime you want the winter this winter just will was prove. My point is air too cold it puts out the fire. Um man now it's it's it's lot of fun. Well we're about a month away from broncos training camp excited about that a lot of possibilities there it news yesterday hit. i guess. It's our big story of the day. But also kind of our topic of discussion big story of the day brought to you by athabasca bank banking main simple september two thousand nineteen lawsuit filed by the two oldest children of late broncos owner pat bolan against their fathers appointed. Trustees was dismissed wednesday so gone out the door. Obviously the lawsuit was more or less about the fact that they didn't believe pat bolan was of sound. Mind when he don't trust and high and put those guys in place that has been thrown out lawyers for amy clamor and beth boland. Wallace made the request to arapahoe. County district court judge John e sapone. Yea i think is that how you say. That's how we're saying today. It is unknown at this time. If a settlement between kilmer wallace and trustees joe ellis and rich sliver silva mary and mary kelly have been reached the dismissal is a procedural move following last month's vacating of the july twelth trial date pitting clamoring walls against the trustees. He appointed to carry out his estate. They have filed the now. Clamor and wallace filed the initial petition in september two thousand and nineteen challenging the validity of their fathers march. Two thousand nine can't believe it's been that long ago two thousand nine estate planning documents on the grounds. He did not have the capacity due to alzheimer's to understand what he was signing and that he was also unduly influenced by the trustees. So what is there was there a settlement. Does this mean we opened. The gates are now stream wide open for the sale of this team. Does that mean the system bowl and sisters are taking over are we. Staying has is. I don't think we're staying as the nfl's already said as much. They need an owner. You need an owner of your football team. This trust thing doesn't work. You gotta have you gotta have a billionaire common and and get this thing done so that's still probably going to happen. According to the dismissal filings duly appointed trustees under pd. Trust have the full and complete authority to administer the pd trust in accordance with the terms and provisions of the pd. Be trust law to legal lot. Illegal stuff there colfax. What does this mean. Overall they vacated the trial date back in june twenty ninth and that was kind of fueling the speculation. The sisters and trustees were far enough down the road to a settlement that a trial was no longer necessary in a statement. Last december walls essentially intimated she in clamor would drop the petition. If the trustees put the broncos up for sale which suggests any kind of settlement this summer would include the team being put on the market. So that's probably what is happening. Now this thing is up for sale we assume this would be the case and here we are. So what's next for this broncos organization. I'm ready to get it done. And then we can move on with our lives and we just because again. I talked about the timing of john. Elway stepping down stepping up. Whatever you call it to bring. George payton he had the one year laughed as the vp gm. Basically i thought it was strange that step down then because again next year will probably going to have an owner. I would imagine before next season. Does this thing get done in the middle of the season. I mean it's not going to really affect the players. could it affect vic fangio. So if you if you buy a team colfax if you wanna buy team. Do you want it to look like your image. Do you want to go higher or are you. are you going. You know what. George payton so far so good vic fangio so far so good. We're gonna we're gonna go that route or do you buy a team and do jerry jones. It d- come in and you start acting as somewhat a gm and you wanna get your guys in place or do you. Just go with it by it. Let it sit for two years. Before i even dabbling make any moves at all. I mean that probably the safest business move rather than just blow it all up when it's already kind of in a rebuilding phase. That's showing some feel hope. Feels like we're getting some signs of hope. I think some are really low on the quarterback thing and that's the end all be all but i really again. If the broncos come out and win five games and unknown billionaire buys the team does unknown billionaire. Say george peyton. I like you man. But i'm going to get somebody that fits my philosophy. I mean that could happen. That could have even though he signed then he sent a five year deal. Sixty six year deal. I mean that people can find out of contracts all the time. So that's why i thought it was so odd that elway step down this year but i know why because i don't think george peyton would been available. That was the guy that elway i think wanted. I think that was the move down the road. Now if george payton said i'll wait one more year then maybe see away. Stay there but that was the guy they wanted. They wanted to get george state. So i mean this opens up a lot of interesting things as we progress the season. That's in front of us. Yeah we have that. Would that be crazy. If the broncos actually pull off a positive season maybe even do something really wild and then and then we've got a sale for the team like it does feel like this team has just been in limbo for a long long time on the field and off the field to be fair so i i don't know what that side looks like. But how about this colfax peyton. Manning was kind of asked my mark kisla of the denver post. Would he accept a role with the broncos any kind of like executive role with the broncos. Manning didn't really shut it off. He didn't necessarily say no. He's living in denver broncos ambassador which is really cool I'm a fan season ticket holder. Been every game the past five years. So i'm interested in what's going to happen as anybody because i care about it. Just like i care about the colts university of tennessee and the university of tennessee. I've gone on a year to year basis in the second chapter of my life. I'm going to try to do this this year. I don't go past that because you try different things and maybe you like. Maybe you don't look. He continued being. Part of the game is important to me. I've found different ways to be involved with it to watch film with joe namath. And raymond barre. I mean that's a dream. Come true for football junkie like me. But i'll always be a part of the colts and more broncos organizations in some way but i'm interested in what's going to happen. I haven't said no to anything officially forever. I've just said no to some things each year the next year. Maybe things change so who knows what will happen in that. What does that sound like a little closer than we've gotten with manning because your last year before that you were for that it was more or less. Yeah you know right now. I want to do this. I want to do this. He had his show payton's places he's he's evolving that program and he's not really going to do it. He brought a bunch of different athletes to take over and they're gonna be doing their sides and their versions sesame. It's cool I could you see peyton manning. He lives in denver. You're an owner. How do you which when elway took over for the broncos right. Wasn't that huge news. That was a huge thing and was a glorious. To be honest with you everybody loved it and for the most party worked out but in two thousand two thousand eleven. When john elway was announced as the vp. And basically it was gonna be the guy that makes the draft picks the decisions that kind of thing. It was perfect it was. I mean he couldn't have done any better. Start things off. Does it feel the same way. i mean. if you're if you're this broncos organization which lists let's face facts right now. They are not say joke. They're not they're not cleveland. I've gotten in trouble for that before by holy but they're relevant are the broncos. I mean look. They're season look at their schedule. How many games are prime time playing the giants first game of the season. How many games are on prime time now. Now i think one so there are a relevant right now other than just winning if you hire peyton manning as the underneath george peyton. Doesn't that pack a punch for at least a couple of years has staying power kind of like the ed. Mccaffrey has staying power and then two three years. You've got a grace period there and then we start judging based off of your off of your knowledge just because you were great at the game doesn't mean you'd be good at it if you had to guess would peyton manning. We better than john elway at this job eventually. Gm material and if he comes in underneath george patton and george peyton tears it up. Then wouldn't that mean manning would eventually come to the broncos and then go somewhere else as a gm so. I don't know what that looks like. To be honest peyton is this not an up and comer but as far as the gm role he is an upcoming there. He's a big name. He was the name this offseason. I that those are the thoughts that go through my head. Because i'm thinking okay. You bring manning is an executive. What then. Because he's not going to surpass george peyton unless you have a bad season or two and the obviously higher george peyton because they believe he's the guy that can get this thing back tracks so if you bring peyton manning in. He lives in denver. Don't you bring him in with the idea that he's going to be there for a while and he's going to be a part of this organization for a while and if that's the idea you know that he can't really move up the chain as long as george peyton is very is as long as successful because if he's successful he's not going anywhere for awhile. I guess you could say he could be successful and still not win championships. And then the broncos decide that okay. Payton's not the guy to get us over the hump. We'll go with the other peyton. George peyton manning well how that would be cool happy. What a waste. If we don't make this happen. George peyton manning texture here well county swamy. Payton was a unique player. In the sense he found his success with his brain. He understands the game so well that i think he'd be great but see john. Elway was and continues to be a heck of a businessman. I'm sure manning is to manning invest right invest in the papa. John's thing started the the program. He's very talented elway to me. Colfax comes off as a businessman though. But he's a guy that's wheeling and dealing doing deals car deals car dealerships just by the colorado crush bringing championships not seeing manning doesn't strike me as a businessman. 'cause he's extremely smart but doesn't always just come office like Oh what's what's the sitcom that were the television show. That was famous chart tank. No salesmen show and their advertisement advertisement. Sales madman madman. Doesn't elway strike you more as a madman type guy then peyton manning type guy yes yeah. That's kind of where i but again that doesn't let's neither here nor there would manning and a lot of people say what about eight meaning owning team. Is he a multi-billionaire. You're going to need a lot of investors manning's very rich man but there's a difference between multimillionaires and what it usually takes to be a team. Owner right is you got to be a multi billionaire. So unless he enlists bought out he has some shareholders and he can buy a percentage and then he continues to add to that percent. He could do that but he's not going to be able to buy this team outright in the cards ever the most he would be is a away type he could get to the top of that chain maybe yeah maybe by a share maybe own a percentage and grow that percentage. But would you like to see it. Yeah i mean he's going to say no as a fan. The tough part is once you go down that road. What if he's bad at it and did did elway hurt his legacy at all in two years time three years time five years time. Are you going to look back and go. Yeah that kind of tarnished his his name a little bit. The last four five years of running the broncos kind tarnished his name now not really not for me. I don't think so either. And i think he's still. I mean brought a super bowl. That's what it's all about. You want a super bowl in your time. Moe there's many gm's that don't even win a super bowl. Ever elway went to in his time. Yes his overall if you're upgrading his time as a bronco that super bowl doesn't that bring the grade point average way the hell up and keep it there that winning a super bowl has a lot of power. Because that's what the goal is of this game and there's only so many teams that have won it multiple times. There's only so many teams and so many. Gm's with that team that can say that even want we always throw the word mastermind out for gm's and coordinators and coaches. And how many super bowls do mike shanahan went okay. He wanted to with john. But we throw the word mastermind down there so great i would say elway. Ranks is pretty high up there as far as some of the best games of all time. It seems weird because he struggled the last few years but in his time. Short time if you think about it two thousand eleven essentially to two thousand and twenty because now payton's running things that's nine years even hit the ten year mark really right so i would say in his nine years going to super bowls if i said. Hey i'm hiring this guy get. I'm going to predict and i guarantee that's going to happen. You're going to go to the super bowl two times every nine years. You take that in an instant right. Because how many. Super bowls of the broncos ben to especially the last twenty years too. So i think you take those odds yes very successful would peyton manning be able to. He's keeps following always footsteps. God vote for sure. But i i would not think that the end result would be manning taking over as gm. My gut would tell me. George peyton and peyton manning together would do great things because george payton's running it teaching manning the game and then suddenly they're good they're successful bam peyton. Manning goes and becomes the next gm for the indianapolis colts. So i mean that's my only reservation about it as if if you hire him now he's want to grow manning's going to want to be the guy in charge right he. He's peyton manning he wants to be in charge so unless the idea's ultimately to making the gm. I don't think it's i don't know if it'll happen. Maybe maybe just axa ambassador in that role and then he bides his time. Until george payton's time but we have just now got got george payton so i wouldn't hold your breath first advantage text line nine seven four seven eight thirteen one nine seven four seven eight thirteen one all right. I'm listening to cave care. Listen to kpfk even outside of this program colefax. I know. I like to listen to my own show on the podcast but i do listen to all of our great shows here and occasionally i do roll my eyes because they say things that i disagree with. They say things that are silly. Our friends you know gail not as much. He's smarter than me so i don't really disagree with her. I just listen tanner. I disagree with ninety percent of what he says. But i'm extremely entertained by what he says. Michael i i disagree with about fifty percent of what he says of the power trip. Michael peterson Clark i agree with one hundred percent on everything he says no no no he could say it's raining and it can be cloud no cloud in the sky. I'd agree with him. I trust clark johnson with my life. Tanner has been saying something. That is way off. That is way wrong. And i'm gonna tell you what that is coming up next twenty five minutes after the hour and we'll get to it so don't don't miss it. I'm gonna get after. Maybe we'll bring him in is he. Is he here go he. He usually leaves like twelve thirty calls today. He calls it a day right around that time so he does a show pretends to work a little bit and then he's then he's out the door probably golfing somewhere so we'll see if we can get him in here because the gloves are coming off we'll be right back. You're listening to the hall's show powered by pw energy and thirteen ten kfi k. Brady will be back after the break. The whole sports story northern colorado the state in the country tune into the whole show weekdays noon to and thirteen ten kfi k. Hey dan vr nuggets. You're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfi played a little fuzzy. When the altro there. I had a question earlier. What did you think i like it. I never heard of it before. I i never had either. i'm guessing that the you hear the ozzy osbourne there and filing need to spend more time with it but like yeah i so okay he chris. Jericho was a former wwf wcw wrestler. So i grew up watching him. And i remember. He said he was in a band. He was starting a band. And i never really paid much attention. I just assumed it would suck because most people like actors or whatever tried to do something different they just suck at it right And vice versa to artists suddenly wannabe actors terrible but A new one came out and it listed to and i went back and listen to like his the album fosse's album from like seventy. I guess started the band. Two thousand and two. Wow but it's good. It's good and it does sound a little like ozzy. So i'm curious is that is that where he got the inspiration for the name. I know maybe so like music on the show. Let's see we like some good music music and speaking of music gotta plug here got late night local. Have you heard have you heard of colfax is so good man. Amazing got some local music local talent. It's fantastic. I mean pie lombardi. You know pyla marty. Right they played. Oh yeah his his new song like concrete or something like that. Oh my gosh. He saw good. I messaged him. I'm like dude. This is really freaking. good. I'm buying this as we speak so what i love about late night local. It's saturday nights. Eight to ten commercial free all local music and jian ben kinda dj the thing and it's fantastic time. They sit down it down. Listen to tunes. You'll net you will not find a format like that in the state where it's one hundred percent local music commercial free east won't find it. I mean that's the thing a lot of people don't realize that there is some really talented local musicians in this area will in especially for me father of three and a half year old. I don't get out to the to the club and the club's the bars anymore. I'm not doing. I don't do you know i never really did. Look at me. Think i look like the kind of guy that did that. Maybe at one point. I mean i yeah but i get to discover local music now just sitting at home which is seriously my wife goes to bed. I had a couple of cold ones and i'm playing madden i know i'm twelve. Play madden said got him. A tune in app popped kpfk on listen nonstop music from local artists. And some of the songs aren't going to be everybody's cup of tea but the point is local and that's what we all support here throughout northern colorado as local local local man. If you find out a guy you like a galley like go by their song tune in. It's great first advantage. Text line is a nine seven. Four seven eight thousand one nine seven four seven eight thirteen o. One dixon's common at me with the with the The elway stuff. But i i gotta get to this. I tanner schwinn of noko now. Great show by the way love what he does but he is so often this. Take a okay. He speeds basically because nolan aaronow standing ovation when he was playing when he came as a playing with a cartel two weeks ago and then at the all star game he hated it. He's like our nado betrayed. You guys don't share this guy on now. I actually agree with. So i do feel like nolan began the betrayal process but he hated jeff bridage. Jeff him and away we went. It was true. That nolan was basically sending clips of himself out there. Hey check me out check. May i look how good i am. He was doing that. He did one out early even even when the rockies just finished up going to the playoffs but i have a problem with fans cheering him. In fact i ha. I wished fans cheer carmelo anthony. So if i'm the guy that says you should respect carmelo. Anthony dam sure. Respect owner nolan or. Not what do you think of that. Take 'cause you're you. And i've been on this on the on. The side of you know knoll is not the innocent one here. Dick didn't do it right. Jeff bright didn't a right but nolan's not one hundred percent squeaky clean. I'm with tanner. On and i know that's a rare. Take in the sports world and in the fan base. But i'm with her. Why are you cheering this guy that betrayed rockies land so you're with tam with the only other in the world i am and i'm sure he's happy that someone else's agreeing with them here but he's right this is. This is how things went down. And i think you should respect carmelo anthony because he did the nuggets and the nuggets fan base a solid. We've gone over multiple times on this show. One cossio save money and we got always turn out being okay pitcher right dahmer's bad well and one of the things i disagree with two was that tanner is talking about the fact that the rockies they did they did this as a money move. They had to get rid of nolan money move. He said why they send fifty million well. The fifty million is way less than what your overall contract was going to be for nolan. So you're okay with that. Yeah so you. How is one hundred million dollar contract. Something yeah and you got out of it. So and if nolan ops in a busy going to then it's even more because you've got five more years paying that high price in the rockies couldn't risk that especially if you want it out so you're saving money i i just i. I guess i'm the guy that says you know if you want boom buber if you want boom boom. I certainly would not expect fans to boo nolan. They loved the guy they love the guy. He is the best player to go. He's going to be the best player maybe in rockies history. Maybe tied held onto that. Now because nolan didn't finish this didn't even finish the first portion of the contract But i don't. I'm not mad. That fans cheered him. I expected that. Yeah i mean it's of course but the wrong you so would you boom now. I wouldn't go that far. You just wouldn't hear him wouldn't share nolan. Came up to you in colfax miss being here man. I wouldn't believe in your head is like call. Man i love you love this state. It's great you're great. i'd be starstruck. Dirty man yeah. I don't know about that. I don't think enters wrong here. And i think people are just going off their emotions here and just remembering the good times and ignoring the situation. That actually happened. I wouldn't cheer him. i wouldn't him. I have no problem with the guy sitting next to me though cheers. I'd understand. I get where you're coming from and again what happened to the good old fashioned sports. It's true that we'll see. But i hate carmelo. I love. I love carmelo. I actually think carmelo should be. I'll give you. This mellow deserves a standing ovation. More so than nolan or not. I agree hundred percent because he did he did. He went to a team that really wanted him and was willing to give up a lot to get him. And so a lot of people don't realize that We call it. We got a break here. But i do want to get into more this. Are we at the bottom of the hour overblown. Okay we got to get to. Let's get to the latest on a local sports flash party. Northern colorado's forks thirteen ten kfi k. A. the block party wednesdays from four ten pm that a modest with. Dnv are the dnb are far and the npr nuggets podcast. And you're listening to the whole show with radio. I'm going to give away a stapler. Anybody who can tell me who's themes on. That is know that right so good when i when i growing up when you heard that glass breaking it was a old no stuff's about to happen stuff is about to happen. I love it there. Wwe fantastic stuff. I've seen phase. Because i start the song. Under the liner. It's really hard to here. Yeah you hear that. Just the tiniest glass breaking exactly what it is. Yeah lights light. Toss tossed me. Two beers loved watching them do that by way. He never actually got any of the beard as now call right now. Tell us and i'll give you a stapler yup. Whose whose theme song is that nine. Seven three five three hundred thirteen minutes. First advantage hotline. I tweeted it. I think that. Hey i have no problem with the standing ovation for nolan. Especially the all star. Game is cool. But i wouldn't go on further. I think fans should respect mellow more. Why is it. That nolan gets the love but mellow doesn't do they feel like it's bright. It's because the nuggets. Not really blaming. I guess it was messiah. Messiah jerry and george karl not really blaming those guys because jerry was pretty cool always stand up with nuggets fans. Maybe it's because of breiwich and dig montfort. They don't like him so they just go. It's easier to. It's easier to be cool with nolan. Requesting trade mellow did the same thing. He requested a trade his his words. His weren't even winning reasons. His words just like. Hey it's not you guys. It's me it's really is me. I want to go to new york my wife and i we wanna grow our brand there do it or i'm leaving in free agency and that team is salivating over getting me. So they'll they'll pay up how that conversation went but we knew that we knew we knew that The knicks were really willing to king's ransom and because of that trade that trade made the kept the nuggets relevant for four or five six years after that and still part of trade came. Jamal murray still so that trade is still paying paying off to this day. Now i'm not a fan of mellow necessarily now but i go back to two thousand and three. I still think he's. He's the most important nugget. Perhaps i think the jokers the best nugget already. The only mvp we've ever had. But i do think that carmelo anthony might be the most important for two reasons number one. He saved this franchise franchise was winning twenty games a year. Nobody talked about the nuggets. Nobody cared about the nuggets. They were a joke. He saved the franchise and the second reason is because the trade he could have left the nuggets. Just like lebron in cleveland. Cleveland was up here. Lebron leaves free agency. Cleveland's laughing stock. Lebron comes back their backup here. He leaves again. He did it twice. Fool me once. Mellow left the nuggets much better than when he arrived. What they always say when you when you're at a company and you go to another job it's whatever it's like. Hey did you leave that business better than when you arrived. Did you leave that team better than when you arrived. Mellow did say about nolan. To play off okay. They went to the playoffs in a row. nolan was great best third baseman of all time. But what did that do for you. What did that do for the nuggets at least went to a western conference finals were in the playoffs. Every single year with mellow mellow never missed the playoffs with the nuggets. Ever rockies have been five times to of those times with nolan. I don't know why i got into this. But i'm just thinking about. Is it okay to cheer on players that not only leave organization but they requested a trade. Is it okay for that. to happen. depends on the situation. I'm just saying i wouldn't do it. I don't care i'm yes. It's okay especially if they were excellent players ambassadors for their team while they were here and no one was. Yeah he was for at least that last. Well maybe not the last year you know as much doesn't really say much about it either way Are you going to boot. Trevor if trevor. Because he's basically it if we don't know this for sure but if story basically says to colorado you muscle trade me because he pulls a carmelo might as well trailing some not resigning with you. Isn't that similar to requesting trade if not worse and so you'd get return right. Yeah again because it's not really requesting a trade it's saying you don't trade me i i am leaving. Yeah you might as well get something for me that's better. it still hurts. But it's better joe. I listen. I get worked. Tanner's going with this. But he can't act surprised i knew fans. We're going to cheer for nolan. I have looked at this thing on both sides from day. One though i don't think it's i think it's both of their faults. I think jeff. Brian dick montfort and i think nolan nolan. Not they're both. They're all three to blame in this situation. So that's kind of where i've tried to stay with it all right going back to elway. Dixon's dixon's rare up here biting my tongue on the elway pimping because i said elway top. Gm ask broncos history possibly possibly Feeling elway will totally back out sooner than later. And he hit and he would be totally fine with it. I mean what does he really doing now. anyway it was besides having a title. I i don't know now. I have no clue. I don't think he's doing anything. Broncos should be happy to kick to the curb and bring in manning. Will they won't bring in manning. Would they bring in manning to replace elway so bad with her office. Yeah but manning wouldn't be responsible for any trades or anything like like he wouldn't be the guy that can make those decisions. It'd be an ambassador. He'd be an ambassador. Do what always doing i see. I think manning's would want to do more. I think he'd want to draft. He'd want to sign people in free agency. He'd want to do that stuff create. I think manning's too ambitious. I know elway says it was a promotion. It was it was a promotion as far as pay probably and position wise. But you're doing less. I think manning would wanna maybe for at least five to ten years twenty years. He's gonna wanna do he's gonna want to manage If elway is what stands in the way of getting manning involved of the broncos guess what number seven. It's time to go. You've done enough damage. No reason to hold us back and lose manning dad but though he wouldn't be the reason it wouldn't be elway it would be toward faden. George peyton would be the reason. Let's face it is always position even is that like what he's doing right now. Is that a normal position that the rest of the nfl has you took your. You took your president who was your. Gm basically said. I don't want you to make gm decisions anymore so now you're just like you got to decide whether the stadium serves coca cola. Pepsi I don't know i don't know what it does. But is that a real position in the nfl probably nfl. Teams create positions all the time for their buddies and stuff. And it's probably just like a nice little sendoff gift to retirement is really what it is. Probably because what does he do. I don't think anyone knows. He's because george pain did say thanks to elway at the end of the draft did sign off on on moves maybe he can make recommendations without maybe share some insight or they play opposite game. Elway says hey draft a quarterback and like cornerback. What i'll go with that. i'll go the opposite. If manning is involved he is going to want to be all in and have a say. That's what i'm saying. That's why i'm saying. It might not work because george peyton is the general manager. George payton took the job probably right knowing he's going to be the guy. Ken bones says elway plans valvoline party. Better than having von miller planet right. A- you need better planning for that can't have you know messed up cowboys running around breaking into people's apartments cocaine party cocaine punches waiters. Just a costume. Just because i was dressed as dave chapelle character dr. Your cocaine parties is like i mean joke. Hey i haven't even touched our power play. Sports poll question. And we've got to take a break. What will go down as the bigger first round. Draft miss for the broncos passing josh allen. Drafting paxton lynch passing on justin fields just feels prediction game. So don't give me the. Hey we'll see predict. Do you think justin feels. It's gonna be better than josh allen. I do but which is going to be bigger miss. I do think justin feels going to be better than allen. Like the draft. pick better. why. Why is that. Colefax is in a roundabout way. I've been kind of tiptoeing around this. That i'm i have some some confidence and drew lock. Oh my goodness all right. Twelve fifty two time. We're gonna take a short break when we come back. Let's wrap up our number one. We'll talk more about power to play sports poll question and whatever else we get into the whole show powered by pvc energy listening to the hall's show powered by the energy and thirteen ten kfi k. Brady will be back after the break here. Mornings with gale. We as six to nine and northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. Win with dnv are nuggets. You're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten ks k. Welcome into the whole show powered by energy gremlins attacking. It's fine. Dixon has give manning elway's job so he has some say in the recommendation died. That's not the way the job is set up right now though. And if you're george peyton do you want. do you want to have a guy. Suddenly okay elway said. He was backing off. And it's george payton's it's george payton's time how cool are you going to be if they say. Oh no peyton manning's coming in and he's reverse. He's coming back in he's going to have some say. I don't think that's going over very well but the new owner might not matter what anybody else says. Second hour coming up chris. Dempsey will join me a little bit later on in the program. Talk some nuggets more on the denver broncos and a few other things on the on the list to its all show powered by pd energy.

B.I.G. Interview | Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos on Game 1 Meaning for Fangio and Teddy

"Visit nico carpaccio former. Ram current pro basketball player. And you're listening to the whole show with my good friend brady hall last week. Was our game week edition so to speak going into the college football scene and now we are rolling. We get Broncos giants starting up on sunday. I am so ready aia pumped. I'm ready to rock and roll joining us now from. Dvr broncos are broncos insider zak stevens my man. Are we ready for this. It's finally here regular season football. I mean we're we're only two days away from an actual regular season game. And then a few away from from the broncos giants. now. I can't wait for it all brady. I mean college weekend with fantastic this past week and now we get a double dose of college and the nfl and like you said. I'm even pumped watch. Tom brady on thursday night. I'm just ready for football to be back to. Let's see those buccaneers cowboys with. I think dak prescott. That's been a strange. But i'm guessing he's going to be ready to go but let's let's get into this one here This giants teams interesting. It on the fact that daniel jones is entering its third year. They're kind of at a point. Where i mean maybe where we would have been with drew. Lock this year if he would have been the starter but they're at a point where hey it's it's put up or shut up time for daniel jones. Yeah i mean not. Just pretend you're jones kind of that entire organization With their head coach with daniel jones also was saquon. We know and saquon healthy the type of talent he can be but he's doing a pretty big contract coming up so he needs to also show that he's more of that guy that he was early in his career And is able to successfully come back from that injury. But you're absolutely right about daniel jones. This is a guy who has flashed. His talent is more athletic than people think but also he is a turnover machine and that is something that the broncos should absolutely capitalize on this week. And it's not just interceptions. He does throw interceptions. But it's not like he leads the league throwing interceptions. He's the guy that's really sloppy with the ball in the pocket and when he takes off to run which is quite often. How much pressure is there again. You're looking at september vic. Fangio is not one in september. You look at this giants team. They're hungry. They're hungry for a win. And maybe this division is going to be improved. But i mean the first three weeks. We've got to be talking some some crazy pressure on vic fangio. Oh depress your you had to right on the head. I bet castigated first win in september and then after that not just settle for that but they have to have a winning record after the month of september. They have to be at least two on one anything else that in brady. You're starting to think. Oh boy this season is already over before we get into october. Let alone halloween november and december. But what's interesting. And i and i think you kind of touched on it. Would all of these teams that. The broncos are playing. They're saying the same thing about the broncos. This is one of the easiest games on the schedule for us. Now broncos are loaded with talent. But you can't really disagree with those teams when they look at the broncos and see a five and eleven team last year this is something where the broncos need to come out and get these easy wins because there is no easy win in the nfl. But they're certainly easier games and after this it gets much more difficult so all right worst case scenario will be oh and three one in two and september are we. What are we doing here. Are we lead vic. Play this out because looking at the schedule it doesn't. It doesn't get that much easier instantly. There's i think a baltimore game in that mix browns game. That makes steelers game there. Then you start getting into some division. Play i mean. Is there a chance a realistic chance. That if you go in the first three or maybe just one and two does vic fangio stick around you know. I really think george payton is going to give benefit of the doubt to vic as much as possible so i think he'll let it play past owen three or one and two but then brady i mean. There's only so long that george payton can allow this thing to go and that sort of direction if it happens that way without then his credibility being put on the line so i think it unless a major chain of events were to happen in those next three games and like you said those are three very difficult games. Then that's when. I see a move being made. Maybe right after that cleveland game. Since that's the thursday night game you kind of have ten days. That's about the earliest icy something happening. Even if its way off the tracks that's going to be again Nothing like must see. Really for the broncos i know broncos giants select the sexiest matchup in the history of the world. But because of what this could mean because of vic fangio's record in september every game. We're going to be magnifying. It and you know what we're really not going to walk away satisfied unless there's a w next to one of those three to all of those three games well and on of that brady Let let's say the broncos come out and lose against the giant ball you have another east coast road game against a bad team. But what if. Trevor lawrence wilson look good this week. Then you don't really see them as terrible teams anymore. You see them as guys as teams with the number one and number two overall pick now it could. It could be the opposite. The broncos could come out they could shut they on barkley down. They could get three turnovers off. Daniel jones and trevor lawrence and wilson struggle in their first game. And you're saying there's legitimate shot at three and put the worst case scenario that we could be talking about in one week from now is pretty daunting talking to zach stevens of dnv. Our broncos. and i mean there's a lot of storyline surrounding this team. And obviously we talked about one of the big ones and that's vic fangio and his immediate future will look like if they struggle in those first few weeks of the season. But but there's some other ones that were really interested. Obviously the quarterback situation. We've turned the page for better or worse were riding with teddy bridgewater There's a lot at stake for him. I mean this is kind of that. I don't know fourth chance. Fifty cents for him to to come out and prove hey. I can be as consistent starting quarterback. I can be a leader of a team. So i mean that's going to be an interesting one to watch. Yeah in petty really wasn't going to get another chance to start this year. After how winning carolina last year and carolina and tried to dump him but he got he won the job so he wasn't even given the job one job and brady if he struggles this year will then he's going to be looking at You know more of a career backup type role however if he does well this year. Maybe it's from the broncos. Maybe it's from someone else just like carolina did with him Last year he could be looking at a four year. Eighty million dollar contract to four year hundred million dollar contracts so to say a lot is on the line. Brady is an understatement for teddy. Now he's certainly will have a job next year regardless of if it's n. denver but the price difference could be you know eight million compared to twenty five thirty million well inasmuch as we've talked about. Hey the broncos won- to work out with drew lock because he's young you know you drafted him on all that i mean. They're not going to hate it. If it works out for teddy bridgewater if teddy comes out and plays above average football maybe a little better than that even and you're winning games and you get into the playoffs. Then the my whole argument of hey well. Now you're drafting in the twenty s. It won't matter because if you believe that teddy can be the guy to run the show with this group that you have with these wide receivers. You've assembled that o. Line and java williams going forward then. I mean that covers you. You don't have to worry about it for the next couple of years. But on top of the brady vic fangio carrying about the broncos future in five or ten years no he's not so i think he would absolutely be okay rolling with teddy bridgewater especially if he does well this year and he doesn't want to turn to a young guy and have to go through those growing pains again especially knowing that he's not on the first year of his deal like george payton as he he has to win right now in especially just just beyond this year as well. He needs to win It because he's been giving kind of that grace period now And george payton also. It's he has a lot of ties. Teddy bridgewater it's not. Just the free agent he brought in teddy bridgewater was his first round draft pick when he was with the viking so he has plenty of reason to fall in love with teddy and stick with him enroll with them And so you're absolutely right. This is something that we could be looking at as a more more of a longterm option for the broncos if it works out. It's another one that. I'm really just intrigued by like i said i i was in the drew lock camp. I'll admit it. I drew drew. Lock guys ac. And now i'm over it. I'm trying to turn the page. And now i'm extremely interested because this is the story line. And you're broncos fan. You're rooting for him to prove that he could be the guy for the next couple of years. The other one that has me is the running back situation zach. Melvin gordon admitted that the philip linzie thing last year khanna bugged him. You know you got philip lindsey. Who was a fan favorite. And it certainly. Fans were wanting philip lindsey to take that role and be the number one that was debates about it. Well now we're going forward devante williams. He's got a homegrown kid but he's a rookie and he showed us a lot in the preseason. Is this the same old story. Just two different cast. You hope not you hope that these two can co exist together And not really 'cause last year. It really was philip. Lindy show for one game when he went out and dominated In new england and then at the second half of the season it was melvin gordon. It was his show. We never really got to see a good. Melvin gordon philip. Lindsay combo together. And that's something that we really hope to see here. We hope it's not just one guy one week one guy the next week because that's probably not going to play out very well over a seventeen game season brady. It's going to be more like last year. Where one guy has one good week and the other guy has six good weeks. You hope that these guys can play off each other but an interesting thing yesterday vic fangio set that. Get that Devante williams has earned the coaches trust so much that they're willing to put him in at any point of the game at any time in any situation just really shows you how much trust they truly have so kind of to follow ups there on that side of it first off his melva going to be really reluctant to wanna come out then because devante comes in and who knows i mean he. He makes a couple of crazy plays and maybe we get the nod to him. He starts getting the majority of the carries. Yeah on top. Melvin is on a contract year right now so where whereas last year splitting the carries wasn't as big of a deal in terms of contract. This is this is a big deal to him. Now now he can feel like you're taking money out of his pocket and he knows the situation that he's put in right now he knows that that he's the starter for now and that. This young guy is clearly the future. That's the thing is can gordon's kind of i. Guess kind of a similar position as teddy didn't necessarily have to fight for his position but if he can be really solid and breakout who knows thirteen hundred yard year and really be great at one two punch which williams then maybe you could look at denver saying hey we're going to we're going to bring him back for another year or two so i mean certainly interesting to see what happens on the running back side of things That talked about that. Right tackle position. What's it looking like. They're bobby massie has physcially one. That job Now he didn't vic fangio. And i really believe it when he said this. When he's talked about the quarterback position he says we have two guys that we believe we can play with andrew and petty and win games with now he said that. Same thing about the right. Tackle position with body. Matthew and calvin anderson and i really believe him when he said that. About calvin anderson they gave calvin They were so impressed. They let this competition. Go all the way up until now bobby had kind of had it locked up for about the past ten days. But they just were so impressed with calvin anderson. And that's something. Calvin is able to continue to develop this year the. Maybe we're not talking about resigning bobby. Massie or going in early in the draft to get a right tackle. The broncos may have the right tackle future On the roster right now. With calvin anderson zak stevens joining us from denver broncos broncos giants regular season game one coming up on sunday where we're getting ever so close to this opening game. It's a big one has a lot to it. As far as vic fangio and the pressure let slide over to the defense first off. Let's look at the injuries. What's the status on bradley chubb. Starting just some of the tweets been seen of yours and other stuff kind of out. There is going to be a full go on sunday in a full go is too much for me to say right. Now i'm not gonna go that far Chubbiness all of last week of practice was back on the practice field and what seemed to be a very limited role yesterday and after practice when asked if noah fan and bradley will be ready to go for for the game vick said he thinks so. So me i. I have guarded optimism about these guys being able to play. I do think they will end up playing. But brady i think you nailed it on the head. I don't think they're going to be full. Go and i think they're they're snaps going to be limited and to me. You need both of those guys out there. you want. See both of those guys out there but brady if they're not ready to go then don't have them play and you just hope that the jonathan coopers and alberto's are ready to go and step up for these guys for this game but the worst thing that can happen is you try to force these guys back on the field for week one because you feel the pressure of how important these first three games are and then one of them tweaks at again and then they're out a month or two. You can't have that no question about it You got well. I guess fans do kind of worry about maybe vic fangio not saying he would put anybody knowingly in harm's way but maybe there is a little pressure for the now the wind now as opposed to. Okay what's the long term plan because vic knows. Hey if i'm all in three somehow some way to start these things out boy. That seat is on fire. He can't even sit down on the hot seat. Brady doesn't this. Doesn't this really remind us of the quarterback conversation that we had been fangio was all about the now whereas fans and maybe people within the organization thought it should be about the future. We'll yeah and i was reading something today. Just kind of doing some early game previews and everything on the giants side of it. I'm not trying to send the giants are a team. You should compare or anything but they they're saying are big philosophies yes we wanna get better this year. That's the goal no question about it but we can't sacrifice this year for next year to there's a lot of pressure to get it done but we have to be careful with guys like barkley we can't force them out if he's not feeling up to snuff so i mean you look at that and i just feel i guess i just feel like the broncos that message is kind of lost it used to be elway. Hey we're competing for championship every year. Then it became. Oh well we're just trying to get this thing right. It's not a rebuild but it is rebuild but might be rebuilt. now it's like george payton's building for the future vic fangio's playing for the now. Yep exactly and george peyton says what what his goal is for. This season is to be relevant in november and december. Well that's pretty much. That's very wide open and vic fangio is all about this next week. Just getting the winds. And you're so right. It's a very awkward year. Just to be honest when you have a new. Gm on a six year contract. He knows he's going to be here for a long time. And you kind of have this coach that just like you said brady and just a couple of weeks. He could be on the hottest of hot seats. I it's a very weird dynamic. Yeah no question about a man. It's it's it's strange to me. I- i questioned all of it back. Then you know with elway and the timing of him stepping down with the ownership situation up in the air but here we are nonetheless like i said. I can't complain anymore about the quarterback situation or the vic fangio higher from several years ago. This is where we are now and you know what i'm thinking. This team wins the first three games and puts a lot of fans minds at ease. Oh boy we would all need that brady because then everyone is going to get behind teddy bridgewater at least for the short term and then the broncos have a great opportunity to really get big time support by playing the baltimore ravens at home if they dropped back games still three in one. Go out and beat pittsburgh. Your foreign one and people outside of colorado are starting to talk about you. It's finally time right. You're just desperate for that. If not things are gonna get things are going to get rough. They're gonna get messy very fast equity working on man that we can check out in the next couple of days. Oh man a lot of stuff just leading up to the game brady. it's it's came weak. And i am so pumped so we'll have a lot of a lot of game or game and season preview seeing. Just how the broncos season's going to shake out. I'm looking forward to the giants have some wide receivers. You know getting golladay of course sterling shepard. They picked up. Kyle rudolph i mean. They have some weapons they can go to. I mean i love their devante booker pickup to to help with barclay. That guy. i'm still not given up on that guy. I think he could still be a decent back. Yeah i mean. The prompt shirts certainly shouldn't be given up on him considering. What devante booker did to him or to them last year. So yes that is a guy where i think. A lot of broncos fans kinda laugh when they see that that he's going to be the guy plan and saquon spot of saquon not able to be one hundred percent but last time he was the one laughing after the game. We'll see what happens this sunday. We'll be looking forward to more and more previews from you. My friend and we'll catch up with you soon right on. Grady can't wait zak stevens. Dnv broncos as kind of the the first taste right of what this priests what this regular season games going to look like. We'll get into full on previews for all things broncos giants. We got a full slate this weekend to colfax we guys see you texas. Am we got you and see in houston baptist. We got ceus issue in vanderbilt.

May 17 Hour 1 NBA Playoffs Are Set! | LeBron Disses Jokic | Zac Stevens Of DNVR Broncos

"It's an exciting week. Colfax my friend and hooligans all over the world. You got avalanche playoffs. She got nuggets playoffs win winner. They when are they going to play like we have the plan stuff going on tomorrow in the eastern conference play and stuff going on wednesday and then thursday friday again. But we're gonna we're gonna look into that throughout the day today but we do know this. We know who they were playing. We knew that a while ago. We know now that the denver nuggets after all this talk colefax. Who would you rather face. The mavericks or the lakers mavericks lakers mavericks lakers the blazers. They get in there. The nuggets kinda phoned it in last night. Didn't want to have that shot of. I don't know i really don't know. The poll question yesterday was should the nuggets. Try to lose so they can avoid any chance of playing the lakers. Well they wouldn't have played them anyway and then they ended up in third place anyway so none of it mattered. None of it matter. Because the cl- the clippers lost as well so even if denver one they'd be in third place third third place they finished in third with a forty seven. Twenty five record. None of it mattered. Yesterday the lakers ended up in the seventh spot. They got the play in game so none of it matters so the poll question was irrelevant yesterday. Mike malone kinda did the thing of. We don't really care who they're playing and listen colfax. I really don't think they care. I don't think they went out in that game yesterday and said all right you know. We got to look at this if we lose this bubble blues. This game whatever. I just think that that was the plan last game of the season. They're not going to really go crazy. Don't wanna get anybody hurt so just do what you can. I mean they were kind of in the game for awhile. But i think the nuggets through ready to turn the page and after seeing that nothing else can really decided and it was one game and it's against portland who they very. Well probably thought before the game there was a chance. They play portland. I'm gonna show him a lot right there that they can use their yes. They're gonna use film throughout the season and such but the nuggets aren't gonna give them a pre season view a week before you know if you want to go study film you're going to have to go back and check that out. We're not going to give you anything that you can use within a few days. So i know issues no issues for me so colfax. The playing games will be so thursday we have the east eighth seed game. Friday will be the west eighth seed game. Do we know when like the actual is it saturday. Sunday does the actual playoffs start on. I think it saturday the twenty second. But i'll get details there. I have game times. According to espn dot com. The last nba game will be friday. That'll be the playing games. And then i think the weekend of game starts on saturday. That's what i know right now. I events text. Line is nine seven four seven eight thirteen o one if you want to get after us if you've never text the program before he takes kfta to that number nine seven four seven eight thirteen one and get in the mix you if you've already done that then. Congratulations you're whole again. You're part of the crew. Partnership part of the crew power to play. Sports poll question of the day is available. Colfax and mask you without jamal. Murray all these injuries. We don't know what we'll barton. Status is going to be the nuggets. Lose in the first round to you. Consider it a failed season. yes i do too. Yeah i do too It sparked a conversation outside of that though all over social media today from this question basically like. I expect my team to win the championship every year. My boy tom great listener the show. But i disagree with you pal talking about every year if you don't game plan if you're not if you're not expecting to win the title then you're you're do you think. The broncos expect to win the super bowl. I don't think so. Do you think they want to win the super bowl and three years though yes like. That's the plan. it's not every year. We expect to win the title. They can say all that meat but it don't lie to me towards payton can come out today and say we expect to be in the super bowl next year. We're all gonna laugh our butts off to believe that but we do think is this. Year is a building block year. We know we have a quarterback and drew lock or teddy bridgewater aaron rodgers. Or we don't and then you've gotta find it. You gotta keep trying but you like your defense. You like everything else. But you don't like your quarterback so let me take a step further fe lose in the second round is. It considered a failed season. I think they got to go to the finals again. That's what most people are. Western conference finals western conference. Final is considered a failed season. It's not how can you expect to go further. I mean i do have. My expectations are pretty high for denver. Will i be will. I say it's a failure if they lose in the western conference finals. I'm not gonna say it's a failure to disappoint one. Yeah but how can you expect to go further. I guess the question is do you think michael porter. Jr. is that much better than jamal. Murray because last year it was all about murray in the bubble and and joker this year. No murray it's joker an mp jay. How can you expect to go further when you're missing one of those guys. I mean you can't ex- you can expect it all you want. But i think to sorry koufax to gamble on it which data bit before. I think he did after i will. Odds were just so attractive. I mean gamble. For few whatever i know what you put on there and i you know i do the same thing no problem or not but like i was going back and forth with this guy with again. A great great hall of famer. I would say tom cement. You must be depressed every year. Then because how many titles due to the state of colorado we got four so other than four year. Five five sorry. Five broncos have three super bowls so other than five years of your life watching sports. You have been very much disappointed every year very much. I don't expect the broncos to win a super bowl this year or next. Aaron rodgers changes that discussion. I i don't. I don't expect the rockies to win a world series. I'm just going to say it in my lifetime right now at this stage the never done it and they've only been in the playoffs five times so the odds of them. Winning a world series in my lifetime aren't great aren't great I expect the avalanche to win a stanley cup. This year. the avs have way more pressure on them than the nuggets. They're the best team in hockey. The record says it right. So i expect them to win a stanley cup the nuggets i expect them to go deep. I think they can win a title. I don't expect them to yes. There's a difference there is is not a letdown. If you're a win the title yes they'll tell you that joker malone they're all gonna that's great. I want that. I agree with you. That right now. I want that attitude two years ago. When denver played portland in the second round of the playoffs. You expect them to win a title. I don't think we did. Our expectations went up because they were like the one or two seed weren't they. They were really good. Yeah they did crush the regular season and that was lakers. Weren't in the mix that you're right. Now he's lebron's first year with the lakers and they were atrocious and he rested like games at the so the lakers were out of the mix we i. I was hopeful that they'd i they hadn't got into playoffs with mike malone that was their first getting the playoffs. So if you're telling me you expected them to win the title that year do you watch the nba. Because lebron steph curry were the only ones winning titles in that span so to get past that point and i wanted him to win a first round they have only done that once in the past twenty thirty years so i was hopeful for that but i wasn't really banking on it and barely did it. They weren't experienced. So what i'm saying is there's a time and a place to place your expectations and perhaps your justified in saying the nuggets should be a contender. But she lost her second best player. I mean this next minute man. Mentality is adorable. I love it. It's great for newspapers and headlines. But it's not always realistic at some point. You have to say well if jamal murray that good him being out should affect this team pretty aggressively so i i'm with you though i answer round poll question. I do agree that you should get past the first round. It would be an epic failure. But it's going to be tough. I mean i'm looking at this roster from from two years ago and remember yousef nerkez didn't play in that series now. We didn't have michael porter. Jr. that was his rookie year and he was heard all year and the nuggets didn't play him. His true rookie year was bubble year. It's called a pandemic bubble year. Whatever you wanna call. That was his rookie year. So let's let that be a great equalizer. Cj mccollum damian. Lillard tore the nuggets up in that series. I mean there are so many games where they both had like thirty or twenty eight point. So here's the difference. Murray was about let me just. I'm going to go through this in detail later. Murray i'm just gonna run through his point. Totals which you're gonna say that's typical murray right game. One twenty three game to fifteen game three thirty four game four thirty four again game five He didn't he wasn't even one of the top scores. I just wrote down the top source. Millsap was the next with twenty game. Six maria twenty four game seven murray seventeen joker had a rough game maria terrible game and remember he was going in for a layup to make that a two point game and cj mccollum comes up behind him in blocks that shot and they get the ball back and they win game seven so if you are saying that you expect them to do a lot of great things then you're basically all right you're going from murray who was like a let's say twenty point average guy the hope is that porter is in the high twenty s that he's the guy getting the job done but i mean i. I just think it's interesting when you think of it. This way at the beginning of the season colfax and you would have brady. Do you think the nuggets are gonna win title. And i'll say here's my prediction for the starting lineup. Game one against portland kuno composite rookie Michael porter jr. second year he was average last year. So whatever aaron gordon all right nicola yokich and what are they gonna do it too is gonna be. Is it going to be austin rivers. If i have also rivers wasn't in the league. You got a rookie point guard again. Monte morris will probably start maybe he will start later in the series but this is the starting lineup as of yesterday a rookie point guard for kuando composite. A guy that wasn't even on a team for eighty percent of the season in austin rivers. Michael porter jr. who was average and had moments last year. Aaron gordon who was good and coach noel barton yet and monte morris again we've been nursing his minutes along and and yet your expectations based on that lineup. Art win a title. I'm not saying they can't do it. In fact i think there's a damn good shot but i don't think i'm going to hang my head of come western conference finals with you. I think they'd they gotta be portland here and again. That's good luck if if the nuggets didn't exist today. I would be rooting for portland over everybody. 'cause i've always loved damian lillard attitude. He's a big sky conference guy. I always loved yousef nurkic even know it ended badly in denver. And then how can you not like terry stotts the head coach for the portland blazers. I'm a big blazers guy. So this is going to be tough. You gotta be careful with your expectations though because you could be severely letdown. It's an interesting lineup denver. Has they really need. They really need monte morris to work into this lineup and i don't know how this is gonna work. Is it going to start. It's bits some great stories in austin rivers and shack harrison young veil mcgee funds story. But are they going to move that needle remember. It all started in portland for wilburton. There's storylines here colfax carmelo anthony. I mean you don't think that he would love to take down denver because denver. One that trait. I think we all kind of agree. New york might have gone deeper one or two years denver. But when it was all said and done murray was a part of that and denver's been more successful since that trade overall the mellow. I would argue that. I believe so so mellow could get back at his old guys. Even though he wanted gone he still feels disrespected by them. Now and i think he is whether you agree or disagree. That's not. Today's debate will start at in portland. That's the story line. They gave up on him. He's made a nice career of it. In denver yousef norwich. He was the guy for denver. He was the show the the pro prodigal son right and then joker comes in at a nowhere takes his job. Nurk find some bench. They discard him. He's mad about it. They move him revenge game from two years ago. Portland knocked denver out in that seventh In game seven denver was the favourite to win. portland gets. Revenge is on the nuggets mind since then. The nuggets have become more of household name than portland. Portland feels disrespected. Nobody's talked about portland all season. So many great things. This is a way better storyline than denver dallas because we just saw denver which we pass them. Not a lot of storylines there. This is the one outside of the rats you know. L. a. and golden state those stories right themselves but this this is going to be fine. This is going to be a blast. But i'm telling you these guards for portland and joke. And hopefully we'll barton could play so we offer everybody kovacs. Let's get to the good. The bad the ugly from the weekend that was presented by fms bank banking made simple. This is an interesting good. The bad the ugly today involves the same thing the rockies split over the weekend bad second-half since the trail rider driven. A left it's going to get turn just went as has been really good. I mean awesome is becoming an rbi machine the rockies split over the weekend bases loaded one else tyler Well hit to centerfield. Basit envious scores bardar given the green light. He scores kosta janos. Claims third to run home. Tyler lakewood proves cluck. They had all these opportunities to win. Maybe sweep go extra innings on saturday and then yesterday. Oh my gosh that was awful the is the rockies bullpen and the rockies split over the weekend flora's come to the plate but it gets away breaks. The dirk gets by again since out to the plate seven six. I just wanted to go that route colefax because it was. It was ugly in that eighth inning bud. Black used three pitchers nc l. Montaigue three gave up three runs two walks and a third inning. Justin lawrence gave up one run three hits and the third of an inning tyler. Kinley put this thing to rest. But it wasn't good enough. I i laugh because it was so bad. It was just absolutely awful. They were six to one heading into the eighth inning. Six to one their bullpen. By the way is the worst in the national league. Five point eight four point five point eight four yara it was. It was rough. There's really no other way to put it in the ninth inning. When they won the game against it just one of those games man everything went wrong the rockies bullpen is just terrible i mean you're starting to see some hitting starting pitching for the most parsons to tell us look really good lately. Although he had bad moment that padre series. I think but still doesn't feel like the wheels are completely off yet. They did enough four game series against the red. They split so that the padres tonight here on. Kfi twenty three minutes after the hour. Power play sports poll question of the day. Do you consider it a failed season if denver loses in the first round to portland. And i've got a few comments here that i'm going to get to a few tax already and we'll we'll we'll bring that up and talk about it a little bit later on. We're going to get zak. Stevens talk broncos with us later on in the show. Chris dempsey sets the table. Maybe he'll give us some insight as to win the nuggets blazers. First game actually is playing week though. We'll talk about all that and more coming up next. It's the whole show powered by energy. We're live from the article. Asian specialist studios listening to the hall's show powered by energy and thirteen ten kfi k. Brady will be back after the break. The power trip weekdays at eleven on thirteen ten kfi k. k. It's andrew bogusch from cbs. Sports radio listening to the whole show on thirteen ten kfi k. a. Twenty minutes after the hour. I mean when you have two of the best guards in the nba collectively awards and c. J. mccollum is that not the nuggets. Perhaps collectively when you add the two i mean. Cj mccollum damian lillard verse faku composer monte morris out. The mismatch is ridiculous there again respectively like a lot of guys so guy text in and goes it would be considered a failed season if the nuggets. Don't get past the first round to joe in and he you know. A lot of people are wanting to jump in this discussion about what was having with one of our listeners. And tom saying hey. The expectations for different franchises are different. Should be different. Teams like the lakers are gold state. Expect to win it all every year. Not everyone has those same goals. It's the nuggets have had injuries. But if they don't get past whoever they play after earning the first home court fourth home court advantage ticket yea be considered a bad seasons. Should they leave early. This season this round. Yes but i think again to expect your teams to win the title every year. It's a building process. Is a building process. Your expectations should not be for the broncos to win the super bowl this year. And if they are god love ya. 'cause that's those are not realistic. George peyton if he was put on a lie detector test pre aaron rodgers happens would tell you he'd be lying if he said yeah expect. No this year is about getting a winning record and getting into the playoffs trying to maybe just getting a winning record and if you think that oh that's not the mindset i don't know if that's their mindset but that's the reality of the situation. My job is to talk about sports and try to be realistic about it. And i do not expect people to expectations. Just go to just because i like them again. Mike malone expectations. His first year with the nuggets was to get this thing back on track. The next year was to. Now you're on track. Okay let's make sure we stay there. The next year was all right. Let's start making the steps. We need to get to the playoffs. And then the the fourth year was. We need to make the playoffs next year. Was we need to go deeper. This year was probably. We want to be one of the top teams. We want to be the container so again your expectations change that being said you lose to portland. Even though i think this. I think this is a hell of a match. I think portland's a really good team perhaps an underdog in this when they've been hot they've been one of the team's last ten games so it's going to be a challenge but it's gonna be fun. I'm really excited about it. You tell you guys about motor funeral. Cremation service services. As unique as life live. Well plan ahead give scott robber member of their great staff a call today. Talk them about pre-planning. It's an amazing gift. Mosier works with fema and many of our nation's disasters like what happened in a with nine eleven why see hurricane katrina the joplin tornado. Their website is mosier. Mos funeral service. Dot com mosier funeral and cremation service. Thirty one minutes after the hour when we come back and talk zak stevens. Let's get the latest bronco stuff but right now. Let's get the latest on the local sports flash. What's happening in your own. Backyard listened to noko now with tanner's swint a northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi cayenne andrew bogusch from cbs sports. Radio you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten k. f. a. I just think the broncos are doing this on purpose. Even outside the draft and free agency and aaron rodgers every week there some gigantic news surrounding denver. Which is why. It's great for us because we have zak stevens of. Dnv are broncos. Ac my friend. A lot of news last week with the james stuff that the sean hamilton stuff and i want to get into that pretty significant announcement today by the denver broncos. Yeah pretty significant amount announcement and brady just like that. I love it. This is jocelyn purity for me with you. Know the broncos always being in the news it really is true that there's that the broncos. There's always something going on and today's some very cool news. Brady of course the broncos announcing that they've hired kelly. Klein is their executive director of football special adviser to george patton as a general manager and kelly is believed to be the highest ranking woman in scouting and nfl history. So a big move for the broncos in terms of get you know how important of a position that and also a historical move at the exact same time down since he's already got that history to with george payton who i believe has really done a fantastic job so just adding someone that he believes is true as in your in his words. What you tweeted. Kelly's a rising star in the nfl. Yeah and not only does george. Payton has is george. Paint on the record saying that but also rick spielman Another general manager is also on the record saying that. Kelly is a rising stars. You have to. Nfl general managers calling her writing star. And the thing that blows my mind here. it Brady is that. Kelly graduated from college in two thousand thirteen. So it's not like she's been around for you know thirty years making her wet no she. She's been around the nfl for less than a decade and she's already the assistant In pretty much. This is george payton's You know right hand woman now and that tells me just how big of a role this is. She's going to be in charge and overseeing the video and equipment departments and also be involved in in player evaluation free agency prep draft grab and pro and college scouting as well so i mean this is pretty much a step below the general manager here brady and it's not crazy to say that she could very well beyond her way to being the first general men the first female general manager in the nfl. Some point about that. I mean what a great story to and again. This is a broncos. Weak spot yes. They've had some stuff workout. You know some good draft picks and free agency but collectively zach. They've missed on for in free agency often. Maybe injuries things. Just don't work out draft picks collectively again. You know we're not we're not talking about even the even the guys in the first round. We're not talking about some of the best players in the league so this is an area where they definitely needed to address and if if she she can work out along with george peyton man it would be great to see. For the broncos going forward it would be and this is the first big move. The george payton has made not just because of the historical implications but also brady george peyton. St- took a step back after he was hired and said i'm not gonna change anything with this personnel department. I'm not gonna do a thing. I'm gonna see what here in denver and then make my moves after the draft and this is the first move that's made so obviously from a historical standpoint. It's very cool. But also this is a huge move when it comes to football as well zak stevens joining us from. Dnv are broncos. Yes a huge move. I love it. I love your follow up on. I loved your tweets about and everything. I'm looking forward to more of your thoughts on this. Move but to zach. Let's go back to last week with john. James the sean hamilton. To this story continues to pick up more. And more steam as we go now. John james believed to be filing a grievance against the broncos. He tweeted out something basically against the nfl. Pa said hey you know what if you're going to advise us to come up with a game plan this whole thing man. It just seems like such a trainwreck. Fine idea i suppose with the nfl pa trying to put out this protest so to speak but what was the plan. What was the plan to help out these players. And we're finding out zack. That there wasn't really a great plan in place. Yeah it really seems like there wasn't much of a plan at all brady. And here's the thing is. I wish that the nfl would protect these guys win. They're working out offsite regardless of if there's lot going on or not because this is the exact same thing if there wasn't a hold out but a guy would just working out on his own on saturday and get off site then. The team is obligated to protect them. That's how it's always been so this goes beyond just the whole holdout. I wished the nfl would protect their players in situations like that but brady. It's the nfl pa job to negotiate that in their contracts when they create that cb and the nfl. Pa did not do that last year. So this this is a big flop on the nfl pa. It doesn't certainly doesn't look good for the nfl as well by not protecting their players. But the nfl pa after not a negotiating that last year in the cba. Now they're coming out and saying okay now we need you to do this in the nfl. Sin what do you mean. You didn't negotiate. You could have given us something last year if we're if we're going to give you this so it's a really bad situation especially with the broncos being hit the hardest really. I mean that. The two biggest injuries with sean and john james coming with the broncos and it's tough so now you see a lot of people and a lot of players majority of the players today brady are showing up for phase two of the offseason workout program. Because once guys are in the building they're protected. This is such an interesting dynamic too. When you look at everything what is the endgame here I'm with you. I want my players to work out right i. I want them to be as fit as possible. I don't want them to lose any ground lifting and cutting and working on all those things you want ultimately to go year round if you want to be the best. What we're always told us that athletes never really stop. Maybe they take a week off or something but at the same time do they need to be at the facility to what what do you think the middle ground will be next time around when they when they sit at the table because that might be the first thing to come up i it it very well may be and i think what the nfl pa is trying to do here is. They're trying to short ten week off season workout program which runs from april until the middle of june. They're trying to shorten it. They're really trying to get rid of it but that's not going to happen so i think what they're trying to do is shorten it to just ota's and when we talk about that can sometimes get confused with the entire offseason workout program but as is really the last four weeks. It's the last month when they're actually practicing. And i think that's what the nfl is trying to do is they. Let us get away from the other six weeks where we're just working out. We can work out on our own. We can work out in florida. We can work out with our own people around the world and that's what the nfl pa pushing for but then in order for them to to knock that off they're also going to want the nfl to protect them when they're not working out so what we may see the compromise where You know if players are working out doing approved workouts from their teams adolf site locations. Then they're protected but they may not protect them. If they're you know skiing in the alps or you know doing other activities. But i think that's where we'll find middle ground but brady. I don't know if we're going to be finding middle ground until there's a new cba which isn't for another decade. I'm with you. I don't know where where they're gonna fight. Because even even then you know you're gonna ask managers coaches scouts. Whatever scouters to to basically trust that the players are are working out as hard as they believe. Or what have you on that side of it to me. There's so much gray area with this. And yeah i'm with you i. I don't know how you kind of come to the middle on this. Yeah i totally agree. But it's something that is going to be a big talking point now. We see today the nfl pa coming out with push back for to to the broncos specifically saying how important is that the broncos take care of john james and brady every indication. Is that the broncos are not going to pay juwan james that money And set a precedent there. And i think that's a big reason. Why you're seeing over seventy broncos show up to face too today. Well this'll be a very interesting. That's a big story. The ongoing aaron rodgers stuff continues to be the story. Zack what's the what's the zakho meter. Tell us today on there. And roger situation takes another hit over the weekend. I believe someone Someone a close to close to the packers said that if the packers were to trade aaron rodgers they would want a quarterback in return. And i've said this whole time brady that that's what the broncos don't want to hear what the broncos won a here is that the packers of jordan love the rolling with him as their quarterback one and they just want every piece to surround him because the broncos have pieces they have pass rushers. They have wide receivers. They have draft picks. They don't have a sexy quarterback to give. And so you look at the other two teams that have been on aaron rodgers wishlist the oakland or the las vegas raiders. Would derek carr. That's way better than derek cars way. Better than what the broncos can offer. And then you also look at trae lance out there in san francisco and san francisco would be willing to move on from him. That's a huge piece. The third overall pick maybe one of the guys with with the highest upside that we've seen in the draft in a very long time. The broncos can't compete with that and so that takes a hit if the packers do wanna quarterback in return because if they get teddy bridgewater that means that the packers love jordan love and just one a veteran there with them if they get drew lock. Well that's their viewing him as a backup potential project in order to be a starter. But those other quarterbacks. I mentioned those guys that you're building your organization around and that's just something that the broncos can't compete with so that's why it's taken a little hit today and what's interesting about the drew lock thing and again. Last year obviously erased any of that want from green bay but they were interested in drew drew. Lock two years ago so if it wasn't for last season if he would have had just like maybe an average season i think the talk would be going crazy right now because green had that interest but because drew lock season was so bad all all those hopes and dreams are out the window and when nappy something is if drew lock was viewed as a big piece in this trade. And then you're talking about maybe you're trading. Two first round picks drew lock. And that's it instead of three first round picks couple of second round picks bradley chubb and or jerry jeudy for aaron rodgers. And so this was one year ago when drew lock just went four and one when he just had seven touchdowns and three interceptions. That's when his price or his value was as high as it could be and like you said now brady. Unfortunately it's not very high non boy. This is going to be a very interesting ongoing saga here. But i keep coming in. If if rodgers is to be moved your rights act does kind of feel like. It's going to go somewhere. How the question is i. Suppose where's green bay. Do they feel they feel like all right. We lose aaron rodgers. But if we get a derek carr kind of situation there we feel like we can still be a contender at that point. Yeah yeah that's exactly where they'd be themselves with the derek carr and i think that's why derek carr is so appealing not only because he's the guy. That's the top twelve quarterback and if you have a good team around him he will definitely make the playoffs but also his contract is very team friendly. After this year. I believe the packers could cut him and twenty twenty two zero dead cap or they could recite them to a big deal. I mean you. You can have him for your quarterback for the next eight years or you can have a major quarterback for one year and let's say jordan love develops nicely behind him. Move on from him after this year. No harm no foul. And there you go you have your future jordan. Love continues to be fun to talk about. Maybe not the best news for broncos fans today from zacks stevens. So if if you're running. Aaron rodgers for the broncos. That's what the zakho meters telling us this week. Anyways agnew friend. What do you work for so we could check out l. d. down rookie. Minicamp not just what happened because not much happened this past weekend. But where the rookie stan brady. And just how much you can expect from them. Because after this weekend and talking to people. I think this class is actually going to have a little more of an impact. Is this year than i was expecting. It goes beyond just patrick's or tannin chevanton williamsville that an encouraging news. Yeah hey. I like the number. Two by the way on patrick's kane i don't know. Why is that so appealing. Oh man i love it as well. I think because you know. Patrick for ten the second then you just put the to wanna he wore in college. I love that the nfl opened this up. And i love that pat taken advantage of that. I am a big fan of this pick. I know it's been controversial and perhaps will be more controversial than the bradley chubb josh allen situation. But i love this player. I really wanted this guy from the get go so i'm excited to see him on the field next season and hopefully he's a long term type. Bronco me too and he really should be and brady. We keep parent vicks say know. He's the fifth or sixth defensive back. Maybe he is right now. During rookie minicamp wants training camp and once the regular season roll around. He is not going to beat the broncos v or sixty back. He's going to be on the field Pretty much every single. Play for the broncos defense zach. I cannot let you go. I don't know why i forgot to address. Exc vic fangio fifty fifty coin flip saying is that not like has drew lock not at least earned two earned the recognition of being. He's been with us longer. He knows the offense. He's our guy right now but it's going to be a competition or has he not earned that and we're we are actually at fifty fifty. Yeah i mean that. That's not good news for drew. Lock that he doesn't even get the nod to get the first snap. I mean he vic because they said it's fifty fifty and we're giving drew the first the first nap because he's been here longer in denver but doesn't even deserve earn that embiid size Brady i think that is bad. Bad news for drew. And that's why. I think even more so that teddy is going to get the benefit of the doubt in this. If it's close they're gonna go with teddy because he studied teddy vic knows what he's getting and look at the ties to teddy bridgewater on this team. You got pat shurmur who is a Who worked with him in minnesota. You have george payton who of course draft him moved up back into the first round to select him in the first round when he was with minnesota and then vic is a guy that is all of last year said. Don't turn the ball over one talking about drew in the quarterback situation and that's what teddy does he doesn't turn the ball over adds much as drew so that's why everything is pointing to teddy bridgewater right now. Exactly took you through the gamut as we often often do my friend always appreciate your insight and he survived yet again. Just keep you. Just keep taking these punches all this news around the broncos. Nobody better in my opinion to cover. Zac appreciate you my friend. We'll catch up with you soon. Thanks for having me on. Brady zak stevens. Dnv broncos vic fangio says flip. A coin drew lot. Teddy bridgewater flip a coin to see who's going to who's going to get the first snap a shitty at least give him fifty one percent should do at least get that because he knows the offense. It's a tough debate. We'll talk about that more on the other side my game of the week. I'll let you know what that is coming up next. It's the whole show powered by energy party.

B.I.G. Interview | Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos on Potential Player Moves Coming Down the Pike

"Five minutes after the twelve o'clock hour good afternoon. Northern colorado is the whole show powered by energy and as always. I'm live from the articles in specialist studios. If i'm just trying to keep track of everything we we got conference awards coming out like crazy. Good news for for all of 'em. Uncc issue see you getting into conference championship week. A lot of games coming up short time to talk about it so we got all that plus the nba all star game. Nicoli could didn't stuff the stat sheet by any means. But i think he kind of stole the show just with his attitude and the kind of guy is so. We're going to talk about that a little bit later. On but first and foremost one of my good friends act stevens one of my good friends that i've only met via this show. It's kind of crazy. Zak stevens gray guy. From dvr broncos act my man how. How was the weekend grady. What's going on it was It was great not events but that's going to change soon brady. I'm just enjoying these next couple of days. Where broncos news is on the down low and until it all explode next week we are one week away from the legal tampering period. To begin in of course just so weird that there's illegal tampering period. It's such a strange times. You can't talk to him now. You can have the exact same conversations next week but don't do it in this period of time. It's always kind of interesting. Yeah it certainly is and then of course. Legal tampering period open monday. And there's forty eight hours until it officially begins when you can sign players so bizarre. Do you ever see okay. You're in the thick of this all the time with the broncos information but really all of the nfl news and legalities. And all that. I mean do you ever just like step back and say this is. This is kind of absurd. Some of the rules that they have both sometimes even on the field but certainly off the field some of the rules surrounding the nfl. Oh my gosh. Of course the just like you said not just with on the field stuff but you know at the end of the day. This is a game and it. It's so funny with with how serious things are taken. And i understand how you know when when the games being played how series but all of the formalities that come with because brady and all honesty the legal tampering period. Another reason why it's kind of a joke is because the the illegal tampering period. Pretty much start at the combine. So actually that kind of throw the an interesting curve in all of this that there was no combine so there really hasn't been much illegal tampering going on up to this point so we've seen a lot of deals in the past where right when the legal tampering period opens. It opens it. You know noon we see deals. Come down at twelve one for you know five years hundred million dollars wait a minute. But but here's the thing with this year is we actually may not see those things happen. We may see you know. A couple hours can negotiate the hundred million dollar deal so it may be a tad bit different in that sense. Yeah no question. it's bizarro world for sure. All right so last week we had you on. Of course friday The breaking news. Justin simmons getting the franchise tack all signs point to something getting done between between justice simmons and the broncos so for now going to chalk that one up to a positive not gonna worry about it right. I'm not going to stress about it anymore until we hear otherwise ac but the next thing on the list how about von miller sounds like charges will not be filed against von so we can clear that out of the way and now it's all football here is. Is that the gist of that side of it. It's all football. And that's how george peyton wanted to make this decision and now we know that for sure That news came down on friday but in about a week to make that decision whether or not to pick up on miller's contract option brady i've been saying on this show for weeks and months now to this point that i did not think there was any chance von miller was going to be back with the broncos and twenty twenty one under the contract that he has now which is twenty two million cap hit eighteen million dollars in cash and only four million dollars in dead money and i have to change that. I think there's a chance that they just pick that up and proceed with that one year left on his deal just because of how. It's coming down to right now. You see the market shaping up. Jj watts two year thirty one million dollar contract that he got that sets up a market where it's going to be very hard to ask miller to pay to take a pay cut and if you're going to ask him to take a pay cut down to fifteen and a half million well then you're also going to be extending him for one or two more years and maybe at the end of the day george peyton just says you know what we're just gonna roll with von miss your see what he has left coming off the injury coming out coming off an eight sacks season i'd rather be tied up to von for one year eighteen million than let's say three years fifty five million something like that if you'd have to give them an extension now so i wouldn't be shocked now if they do go down the route of just picking up that contract option. I do think that george peyton wants to get that number down. But i what what's going to be is gonna be a one year fifteen million dollar deal where they bring that cap it down from twenty two to fifteen. Maybe and i think that's a deal that a lot of people could get behind but originally a lotta people were thinking that maybe vaughn down to you know. Ten twelve million with the court case now settled in him not going to be charged in along with the way the market setting up man. You may have no choice but to pick up that option. Wow what a difference. A few weeks and big. Jj watt signing. What a difference. All this stuff really makes okay. So all right. So we're thinking maybe von stays. And maybe there's no movement. As far as the price tag for vaughn and we just stick with it. What does that do when we moved down the line looking at kareem jackson because again they're still a lot of broncos fans out there that are hopeful. Somehow some way at shawn watson trade happens but don't you have to start being pretty careful if you keep on contract in denver. What do we have left here. You got it. If you take care of cream jackson. He picked up that option. You hope to sign maybe a free agent or two and then obviously you have to have some leftover for rookie. So what does that do for for some of those big names. Kareem to sean draft free agency. Yeah well what it does brady is. The broncos are sitting in a great position with forty five million dollars in cap space at top five in the nfl. But if you keep von us you keep kareem. You pick up his option. He's gonna cost you twelve point eight million dollars against the cap and then you sign shelby harris. Let's say three years thirty million ten million dollars for him And you also pick up. Second round tender options for tim. Patrick phillip lindsay and alexander johnson. That's going to cost you over ten million dollars in total for them. Once you do all of those things then you have no more money left. You can't sign anyone else so what it means. Free agency is actually going to be boring. Because it's going to be keeping all of your own players and less. George peyton wants to really kick the can down the road and let's say instead of picking up bonds option. They give him Two years or three year contract for fifty million dollars and they'd backload it so a lot of the cap pits. Come in your two and your three to free up some money this year. Same a cream jackson. They could rework An extension for him. If shelby harris deal that that he is likely to get if that comes in the form of a three year deal and they kick the can down the road for them. They could do that to free up a lot of cap space this year but brady my question would be. Why would you do that. You know if the broncos were in win now mode and legitimate out then i get kicking the can down the road. But you don't wanna be the new orleans saints Where they're having to just cut a restructure everyone on their team because they've kicked the can down the road so long and the biggest difference between the saints doing that when they had drew brees and had legitimate. Super bowl contention was was just that they were a contender. So it made sense for them to do that. i in kick it down to a time when they won't really gonna content once drew brees left but now with the broncos. Why would you do that when you're not really contending this year in fact i would do the opposite if i was george peyton signing shelby harris up to a three year deal. I'm frontloading it. So that when the broncos are ready to compete in two or three years from now that contract is only you know five million dollars in salary cap and then so you can spend the rest of that money on getting free agents here. So you're absolutely right. The broncos are are aren't in a bad stop eating during a good spot. But don't expect forty five million dollars to come to turn into you know two or three big time for agents zach. How much do you typically want to want to see as far as rookie contracts. Go how much are you reserving. Their you save just under ten million dollars so a lot of people will say seven. It's easy just to say. Keep ten million available. So that's exactly it. You take ten million away okay. Broncos dealing with about thirty five billion dollars cap space this year. I'm yeah when you. I'm doing the math as you're talking and yeah you dwindle down pretty pretty quickly not leaving any room for like you said free agent so it is very interesting and this is something that i wondered about. As soon as as soon as george patton was hired and we. We didn't have all the shots and talk. I i wondered if denver maija stay the course. Because it's this weird twitter year with the ownership situation but then of course is the shawn watson story started to go a wondered about von miller. Of course we talked about justice simmons but it might just come all the way back to now. You know what we're going to stay the course here. And as george payton said build through the draft yup exactly build through the draft. Stay the course. And then you know you get a better evaluation on drew. Lock george payton. He told us on thursday. He gets to see him for the first time in person now he's met him in person because drew's been in the facility to work out but he's never watched him in person play and you know. A general manager really wants to do that so he gets to see that maybe he picks up a gardener. Men's shoe to also add some competition to add some excitement to see if he can turn anything out of that but then he also gets to see. Okay what is von. Miller is he. The von miller That that he was a couple of years ago. Or is he the von miller where you know maybe a little more injury prone and when he does play he's more of a half a sack per game type of player kareem jackson and so if he stays the route i would understand why he's doing that just to be able to see everything on his own with a six year contract. He has the time to do that but then just think about the sweeping changes that could happen next year. Under george payton. When he's been on the job for fourteen months you know free up tons of money with von miller off the books tons of money with kareem jackson off the books and then he can make a huge play for quarterback whether that's trading up in the first round where that strapping a guy in the first round. Or you know heck. Maybe the texans still haven't resolved to shawn watson situation and go that route so i wouldn't be shocked and that was one of the first things i was told when george peyton was hired from source they said. Don't be surprised if george peyton really just takes us back to evaluate how everything's going on this year before making any big time moves. No it'll all be very interesting to see what he ultimately. Does your one then of year two could be really crazy. How about phillip lindsay. What do we know about the situation. What do we know about the tender situation for phillip lindsay at this point well as george payton said last week he wants to keep every single bronco. That was on the team last year. But what he didn't say was at what cost. And when it comes down to two phillip lindsay the tenders the broncos going to tender phillip lindsay. Tim patrick and alexander johnson. But they're still deciding what tenders to us. And that's obviously the biggest thing here because the broncos could use a first or second round tender first round tender costs four and a half million dollars per year for each claire second round tender cost three and a half million dollars per year for each player. And what that does for any of those guys. It guarantees pretty much that they're going to be broncos in twenty twenty one now if the broncos using original round tender it means the broncos will not get anything back in draft compensation if one of those guys is signed by another team but it will allow them to match the contract for one of those guys and because phillip lindsay was undrafted. There won't be any compensation if you put an original round tend to run brady to me. It only makes sense to put a second round tender phillip. Lindsay alexander johnson. And tim patrick. If you put a second round tender their back for three and a half million dollars for one season no teams gonna sign those guys and have to give a second round. Pick to the broncos however if you mess around and you put an original round tender on you'll save a million dollars on each guy and i think that any of those guys will be gone so to me. It is very straightforward. The broncos won any of these guys back including phillip lindsay. Stick a second round tender on them and then they'll be back if you don't you're saying that you don't really want them that much known if you don't with phillip lindsay. Then you're you know. Obviously there's so much. Stock put into melvin gordon. One way or the other. We don't even know what that suspension situation looks like if you don't keep phillip lindsay than aren't you in the market for a running back in the draft and i'm talking probably maybe as high as third round if not more. So if you move on from lindsey and unsure about gordon's only one year left on the contract anyway. Yeah absolutely. I mean if you're not bringing eight one of these guys back regardless of who it is you. You are absolutely in the quarterback camp right now. And let's say for some reason you keep phillip lindsay and you move on from melvin gordon And then the here's the situation for your brady. I do think it would be a day two pick but what happens. If the broncos trade back from nine to eighteen something like that in the first round and then eighteen to twenty six george peyton just really wants to accumulate picks which we know he wants to do what if you trade back and then the best player on the board is najji harris and you could go running back there and that that would be something. But you're you're right. You're not going to do something like that. If you have. Both philip and melvin. But i wouldn't be surprised if the broncos make a move at running back down boy everything. You're telling me today zach. It almost sounds like again. We could be surprised. But we're going to run this back. We're going to see what this group has obviously build in the draft a little bit but who knows how many of those guys will make an immediate impact next year but for the most part it sure sounds like we're we're going to see almost everybody back that was on this roster last year. Yeah that's what. George patton wants to do now. Wouldn't be surprised if there's a surprising move. Where the broncos aren't able to to get a deal with May maybe a von maybe kareem or shelby in one of those guys moved on but for the most part brady. It's just gonna be a very similar squad last year. If if they don't get something worked out with vaughn and like you said it's starting it's starting to sound like there's going to be something happening one way. Or the other. With vaughn and staying with broncos if not does that change everything then to the broncos do do they get aggressive and i'm looking at the free agency list and there's there's definitely some big names middle at inside. Linebacker is going to be the launch levante. david's name. I know that's come up a few times right now. Wouldn't seem possible. But if you're not gonna go with vaughn. If you can't work it out whatever do you see denver. Then turning around and saying all right we're gonna get aggressive and get somebody in free agency. Yep absolutely that. The von miller contract is i think where it comes down to. If the broncos spend money on free agents are not if they move on from von boom there's eighteen million dollars that they can use on any free agent that they want. That could get you to very very good players or obviously like an incredible player. Von miller type of player is what that money could get you. If you keep vaughn and assuming that everything else stays relatively the same. Of course you've already tagged justin simmons yet you keep shelby harris because you can't let him go then brady the money's just not gonna be there for anything like you said it could be It's going to be interesting for the broncos to see who they keep from this roster but like you like you alluded to free agency outside of denver zone guys might be pretty boring equity working on forest man that we can check out in the next couple of days breaking down. What the broncos are going to do with all of their own free agents. So they're going to let these guys walk. Are they gonna keep them here. And of course brady just getting ready for the craziness of what's going to come in the next week. No my goodness sack appreciate you. Always man and Yeah we'll see maybe we do get thrown a couple of surprises down through the through the next couple of weeks. We'll we'll catch up with the next week. They i look forward to it. Thanks brady time and zak stevens. Dvr broncos well there you go. Now the situation is interesting with vaughn. Now you have that the files. A against von were dropped or charges will be filed. I guess i should say so. He's in the clear there now. It's all about football and what you wanna do going forward. That whole situation is bizarre colfax. We didn't get a lot of information on this. All we know is that vaughan's ex girlfriend i wanna say could it be ex-fiancee possibly ex girlfriend. They were breaking up going through issues. She became pregnant. It was You know we kind of found roundabout wave on wasn't crazy about that. I don't know how much truth there is to some of the tweets and texts. He sent or whatever. I'm not gonna get into that too much but then when it came to okay there might be some assault charges or something like that. She made it very clear on her own accounts that there was never anything like that ever. No physical altercations whatsoever guy and then that was kind of the last we heard of it other than the police officials basically saying investigating it. Well today it's dropped. So i much ado about nothing. I don't know again. I i did. That's that's where we are at this point. You know it's the innocent until proven guilty. So i would imagine. We're moving right along. In this situation with vaughn. So now it comes down to well it does. It does come down to do the broncos. Just run this back. Pave on do they really want von miller and if they do do they just want for the year for a test run and that's a pretty expensive test run right eighteen million dollars and if that's the case okay we we stay here or you sign him for two to three years and you work out a deal but then you're locked in if vaughan has hit that wall if he's hit the proverbial wall and he's not good anymore now. You're locked in to two to three years and you don't. You don't know if you wanna do that just yet. So maybe they go that route kareem jackson. His money is in the books right now. So i mean it shows the f thirty five million left picking up that option with cream. Do you work out a deal. Long-term deal where that comes down a little bit into this year we'll see phillip lindsay is the interesting one. What tender are they putting on if they put if he's at his original undrafted round that would pay him two point. Thirteen million dollars. If the broncos put an original undrafted round tender on him he would get two point. Thirteen million dollars next year and that also means that a team but that doesn't mean a team has a better chance of going after him for even three million knowing they don't have to trade a second round pick if you slap a second round tender on him that means that not only do the broncos have to improve trade are prove a pickup because they can match it if a team offers him anything. Let's say three million dollars. They would also have to give denver a second round pick. That is too expensive for phillip lindsay. Phillip lindsay is not worth a. He's not worth a a second round pick. I don't even know what kind of pick he is So ultimately if you go with the undrafted re first round or undrafted round yeah you open it up. He's going to get to see what's out there and then denver will get to decide if they want to match it. I can't imagine lindsay at this stage getting much more than two or three million dollars. At the beginning of last season. I thought six million seems reasonable but his injuries his lack of production way down. He's not really receiving back. So i don't see him making much more than that and if you slap a second round tender on him he's safe. 'cause no one's going to do that so i guess we're going to find out you know alexander johnson. I like him. He's he's an energetic player. But he's not like sound linebacker that's going to be. I think you know. He's a high energy. is he a sound kennedy. Cover these titans. That's what you're looking for. Because you've got a lot of tight ends in the afc west specifically travis kelsey so you need to find somebody that can help bracket those tides. That'll be interesting. Tim patrick tim patrick's really intriguing. Because he signed him and it suddenly you know you. Are you overloaded at the wide receiver position because courtland sutton is coming back. Tim patrick probably makes the least amount of sense for me. Just given the fact that you're getting courtland sutton back you have jerry. Jeudy have caja hamler. Patrick might be over all of those right now. Save for courtland sutton twenty seven minutes after the hour lot to bust into today joker in the all star game we're talking colorado state big news for niko medved. We'll get to that and so much more coming up next. you think your bracket can win it all joined. The whole shows bracket challenge and hear the latest in hoops on thirteen ten. Kfi k. as.

BK Previews NFL Draft with Peter King & Broncos No. 9 Pick with Benjamin Allbright

"Will be no deaths by inches. This is the broncos daily. Putt jazzed with brandon. Krisztal want everything. I want all the meatballs and pasta. Heavy draft day broncos country is happy draft day. I think so. I think it will be because you're denver. Broncos are going to make pick in the first round. I guess barring a lot of lot of trade backs trades back. But i don't know trade backs trades back either way they're like we're gonna pick it nine maybe they slide back if someone knocks the socks off with a trade and then what will they do if they do stick at nine. I put on my mock draft. I've got him taking. Patrick ser tan the second. That's based on a couple of things. uninformed guests talking to people in the building and the notion that the eagles and giants won't leapfrog them to go get certain and they can't get a good trade partner. If a quarterback like trae lance falls there but justin fields has gone or all. The cubes are gone. I don't think they like mag jones. I don't think they liked freelance. I think they like just fields of he's air. Maybe they'll get excited. If he slides a seven they'll jump to seven to go get him With detroit and not let a team mind and maybe a new england jump up there and go get him if If they want justin feels badly enough. But if he's air at nine i think they grab them. Otherwise i think you're lookin' corner and tan has gone and they can't find a trade partner at nine then i think they'd put settle in quotes. Jc as well. I just think they're in on corner. More than their non tackle as much as people think it'll be rashawn slater corners more of a premium position. And they have two tackles right now. So that's the way i'm going. That's the way it says my mock draft again. This is not just me. It's informed guests But speaking of informed. Benjamin albright is now the broncos insider. I'm a broncos. Sports reporters is no cover. The broncos But he will join me here in just a little bit to talk about what the broncos are gonna do tonight is a chance talked peter king on logan and louis and there's nobody better than peter king One of the best in the biz football morning in america and of course nbc sports So gonna go through a bunch of stuff with peter king and even Just for fun. Low baseball talk at the end just as he's as big a baseball fan as as anybody. I know So why don't i get out of the way we can hear from the great peter king. Maybe the very best football writer in the busy guy. That i always love. Cnn missed a being at the combine for having some beers our favorite brewery There in indiana. Peter king joins us. And i don't know why i'm drawing a blank on sun king obviously son king is. They've got one of my favorite beers ever with john. Les peter great to talk to you especially on willie nelson's birthday own. Also there's nfl draft going on a brandon. How you doing. i'm doing. I'm doing really really good. It's it's been weird. I'm curious. Let me ask you this. Because i was mentioning to grant how you were here. Two years ago we all hate co for a million reasons. But i have to think for the second straight year unless the rams are letting you in there malibu mansion you aren't getting to go hang out in a teams war room like you normally do because code restrictions. Yeah no you're right. I'm not gonna be in anybody's after them. You know last year. I actually something that That was really really cool. I basically Sure the power of face. Time watch and listened to the first round of the tampa. Bay buccaneers By watching and listening to jason light who had set up his draft room in his children's toy room home right and it was just totally bizarre experience. It was midway through around. He was madly trying to trade up. Get a trade partner to get trysted worth and I would say maybe it was I'm guessing around pig. Twelve or thirteen. He was on the phone with the. We've might may are. Gm and the raiders and at that moment a there was a blood curdling. Scream of mommy. her outside the door so I don't know that was kind of fun deal for you know for sort of you know the i said to him when when it was all over i said to him that you know now you realise what every other you know every other employee or employer america is going through right now which in essence is You know home stuff interfering with work stuff you know like day after day after day. Anyway he thought it was kind of cute. Yeah do remember seeing your football morning in america column after the fact it had to be cool. Just to be a fly on the wino- when you're in the room is there when you've been in the room 'cause i know you're in the room with the niners you've been in the room with other teams. You wanna be a fly on the wall. It's got to be easier on zoom to really be a fly on the wall in some respects. Then when you're in the room. Like there's peter king we've seen on tv and covering the league forever in our room so in some ways. Is that a little better to be more anonymous than just an observer. I know the bad the bad part. The different part last year was that i saw one person last year right. I saw the guy making the ultimate decision whereas you know with the forty niners twenty seventeen. What was cool was watching. Parague murata lose. Their guy in also is an incredible speed. Dialer you know trying everything humanly possible to move up in the draft for an turns out it was. It was good that they they didn't make a big deal because they were trying to get They were trying to move into position to get reuben foster and they ended up doing that late and around. But you know they would have had to pay a lot more than they than they ended up doing when they moved up for that. But it's fun to see the role that everybody has in the room. That is an interesting thing. One other thing occasionally you know look. I am a total fly on the wall. When i'm in the room and but after the draft is over and they're just hanging around. I remember on friday night after the third round san francisco kyle. Shanahan was up at their draft board staring at it looking john. Nash and a beautiful mind. And i said what are you. What are you looking at goes I'm looking at the running backs. And i'm looking for joe williams and i said who's joe williams and he goes. Well he's the guy who i like a lot but he's off board and i'm just trying to figure out if i should really make a big push to to have us reconsider that because i really liked joe williams so turns out joe. Williams got kicked off the team. was it a yukon. Maybe it was somewhere and he ended up being utah. Played very well loved of and the next day and this sort of segues into Mack jones a little bit. I think but the next day john lynch got on the phone with joe williams and said listen. You're off our draft board but our coach really wants you. I need to trust you before. I can approve that pick and so they talked for about a half hour and and that was saturday morning. And at the end of that shannon hair lynch goes to shanahan ra. Kyle were gonna get your guy you know. I'm i'm behind. The and lynch told me later on. he goes. Listen when your head coach really want something you gotta work together and you know you gotta be partners here and so you know that's a again so weird segue into y if kyle shanahan wants my jones. I think they're going to give jones well. And that's what i was going to ask you. Because that's i think really intriguing. Obviously the ties between the niners and broncos are a really strong and have been for a long time just with the mike shanahan coming over obviously when he did To run the broncos for so many years but now with kyle there. John lynch there bobby turner's their wes. Welker keep going unless there's been a bunch of players in recent years and probably more guys that i'm forgetting so we certainly keep an eye on on what they're doing but with them moving up from twelve to three. Everyone thought for sure they know their guy. And then you hear that. Kyle really likes jones and john and maybe some of the personnel guys might like trae lance or justin field. So do you think ultimately kyle wins out. Because he helped john get the job. He's the coach. It's kind of his show even though johnson hall of famer and obviously a good gm in his own right. Who gets the dying vote. Who does jed york side with tonight. And they're drafter. It'll come to that really bring in. I think they know now what they're going to do. You know. I think. I think and i don't know what that is. I mean i i really don't i don't know what they're gonna do. But i guess. I'm probably like everybody else. And you know all the the little crumbs little morsels on the ground or leading all of us birds in this in this business to You know to to pack these clues and it just appears that mack jones is real good fit for what kyle wants to do. So my feeling is that's probably what they'll do but we're at the point in draft mania. Where and i'm not saying nothing will surprise me. It will surprise me if they don't take a- they don't take mack jones but again i i'm not saying they i'm not saying they absolutely take jones. I'm just saying i'll be. I'll be surprised if if if they don't we're talking to the great. Peter king from nbc. Sports football morning in america. Peter underscore king on twitter. A couple more for you and appreciate the time especially on such busy day sliding down to the broncos at nine. I asked her paid in. This last weekend is pre-draft press conference. He find any amusement. Everyone speculating what he's gonna do with. No real track record other than looking at things. The vikings did but you have to add to it. Rix boom one making the final call so yes. They traded back into grab a teddy bridgewater who they traded for here yesterday and they've made other moves. They've traded back. They've done these things but that wasn't georgia's call so when you have a first time. Gm especially when picking in the top ten and that happens a lot. There's a couple how. How are you able to whether it's you or anyone else. But try to guess. You have an informed. Guess especially if this guy plays his cards close to the vest george. Peyton is as to what he might do with this first pick. It's one of the reasons why this draft is is so hard to predict. And why i don't even pretend i'm not gonna sit here and say hey i know what's going to happen because i don't But there are four first time general managers running their first draft between picks four and nine k and not so coincidentally you know terry font no with atlanta at four. He starts the basically the unknown area of this draft. And you know look at. How many teams right there that you really can't predict i mean detroit now at number seven new. Gm brad homes carolina number eight new. Gm scott fitter with a desperate owner For for for quarterback and then obviously george george peyton number nine and i. I think i think what happens. When you have all that newness and all that unpredictability. I think what ends up happening is that somebody is going to throw a wrench into the works. I don't know who it is. And i don't know what the ranch you'll be But i don't believe for instance it'll be things like new england trading way up to number seven or anything like that. I just think it'll be who gets picked in this You know in this sort of weird area of the draft you know between four and between four nine and obviously the quarterbacks dictate that and these gm's willingness to trade back to accumulate more picks. I saw where someone said. Oh carolina because seattle light trading back that means scott eight wants to trade back and again. It's like well. That wasn't his call. He may have agreed to that philosophy. But that didn't mean that's exactly what he's going to do. The other thing that i love is people saying bill. Belichick won't trade up because relax twenty years. He's never really done that. Although a couple years ago he went up win. And i'm like well. You mostly trade up for quarterbacks if you're gonna make a real big jump and he had the best to ever do it for twenty years so there was no reason to trade up. Yeah yeah. I don't i think bella check when the patriots are really quite mysterious in this draft And i think a and because look ballot check has run twenty five drafts in his life. for in cleveland. Twenty one in new england. He's never picked a quarterback hired in sixty two. So you know that says something to me but as you say you're right You know he hasn't had to pick a quarterback in twenty years in a row so why would he. Why would he have picked one there. But i just i i think also the fact that you know belichick just went totally counter. Bella check this year in free agency. That's why. I don't think anybody can really logically guess what bella trick is gonna do. Yeah i'm right there. With the i before i let you run. What what are your draft night plans because of the limitations with cova did you at least try to get in the rams mansion because they're probably look like everybody was money. What's funny is that. I i called around a little bit and You know i couldn't get into anybody's drafter him in part and it's becoming harder and harder but the other thing is all these different rules this year Really make it hard because teams that don't have Everybody able to be vaccinated. You know two weeks before the draft. You know so. They're all going to have to wear masks they. This was just not the here to be able to do anything you know of. Great substance you know in in. Somebody's graft room. So i'll be watching it just like everybody else. Yeah it's to be fine with the broncos picking the top ten and not george payton's doing. We're certainly excited to cover it here on on the broncos flagship and then finally i have for you looking at the baseball standings. I imagine somebody who lives in new york. You don't mind seeing the red sox sitting atop day l. east. Well i mean it's it's really been a weird weird year. I thought they were gonna go sixty one hundred two and And they've you know they're pitching really has been such a major surprise. I mean make better. Be jacob degrom last night right. I mean the mets offense. The mets offense really be jacob degrom. They're killing yeah. it's unbelievable. He has to help himself. And it's still not enough. It's unbelievable how how much I mean every game is a masterpiece by graham and he can't win a game because the best are terrible and i just saw this this morning francisco. Endure has eighty three plate. Appearances and two extra-base hits i mean. Now we're three forty yet. Oh my god it's ridiculous but anyway. Hey i mean charlie black to get going no kidding. Gps on yeah well. He dropped them down to six. And i think you had an extra base hit In in that first game. But there's plenty of rockies fans and need him and trevor story to to get going for their fans teams and because the rockies man of replacing the red sox in your prediction with the sixty one team the way things are headed at least one on the road So it's not great at the terrible niagara but we're in the rockies to not home of the early though early and you know you saw the as start one and seven and then went thirteen in a row are hell the you know you. You're you're really gonna make any money predicted baseball now. The best part is that we actually get to go to the ballparks. This year though. And i know when you're not doing your day job. I know you can be found at a ballpark somewhere up. And down the east coast so and hopefully come out here for broncos training camp. Because it'll be interesting okay but some rockies tickets because we are the home of the rocky so thanks so much for the time on a busy day peter. You're that you're the absolute best and i'll talk to you here down the road three shade at brandon. Thank you grayson from. Peter king and always always enjoy listening to him. Talk whether it's with me or with anybody else in reading this stuff. He's the really is the best act. Peter underscore king benjamin just past one hundred thousand twitter followers. He's at albright nfl. I had a chance to talk. Benjamin about the broncos draft and what he thinks do and we chatted thursday afternoon on the heels of teddy bridgewater trade. So that's actually where we began but he will be part of the. Koa draft covers starting at three and all weekend long First round starts at six of course mountain time. And then when you look tomorrow. He's on it three again with ryan edwards broncos country tonight and then at five Bay out dave. And rick both of the next two nights just five seven tomorrow and then all day saturday. It's ryan ben. I'll jump in with those guys some as well but at albright. Nfl again on twitter. Here's what ben thinks. The broncos are going to do it nine. Ben before i ask you. What the broncos are gonna do yesterday. They made maybe the biggest move of the off season for any team in the nfl. Obviously i'm kidding a little bit but a move that we've talked about planning on broncos country tonight the you and i both saw come in for a while. Now they don't give up much six rounder and three million bucks for teddy bridgewater and they aren't expecting much steady bridgewater's insurance policy. Were you surprised at the move happened. Wanted it No i think this was the right time. And i think it gives them a little bit of flexibility in the draft if the quarterback that they see coming or that they want is Is there at nine. It gives them the flexibility to do that. Maybe maybe kind of bluffs off some other teams that maybe they're they're finished so you know i. It's i think it's a good time to do it. You know why not get the insurance policy now and get that out of the way. And by the way if the quarterback you want falls in your lap. You're you're right. They're for all right. So i'm gonna speaking of flexibility. Give you more flexibility than you already taken with your mock draft. That came out. I know you talked about some tuesday. And it was in. Print form wednesday on the draft network pro Wanna make sure. I get it right but on maybe and saw that you have the broncos taken rashawn slater but i'm gonna give you a little more wiggle room same question that i ask big al. I asked about water asked. Rick gimmie three names. You like for the broncos if they stick at night well they stick it nine. It really just depends on. Who's there if the quarterback that they want is there. i think that would be it Rashawn slater i think would be would be it and then i think less so maybe one of the corners like jc horn. If they stay nine so those those would be my three. Okay so you like horn. Maybe more than tanneries and say that as you know big al said this. I've say tan is the cleanest right. Lotta people jc athleticism. And now everyone is scared off. Caleb farley. You didn't even have them in your first round of your mock draft but you like horn to go to denver. Maybe ahead of have ser tan of both. Are there yeah. Well i mean it just depends on. Who's picking i think horns a better fit here overall. I think he's got opportunity and time to learn because You know he's a guy that can that can sit behind all the corners that they have callahan roby fuller. I don't think he needs to start right away. Whereas if you're drafting ser tan you're probably drafting a guy that needs to start right away. Okay so the other two questions that i threw at All those guys. If the broncos do move up and that does seem more and more unlikely by the day and you and i've been kind of in lockstep not the consulting with each other but both in agreement and the people were talking to that. The broncos aren't likely to move up to four or two five six seven or even eight But if they were gonna move up. Who's the one player that they would move up for that you would move up four or fewer in george payton's here. Well if i were moving up personally. I move up for trae lance. I mean that. That's the guy. If they move up at it would be obviously for a quarterback. I don't think you're moving up for anything else. These days in the modern. Nfl maybe an offensive attack or an edge rusher You know if you're desperate for one. But i think the modern nfl if you're moving up. It's it's pretty much quarterback So for me that player will be trae lance for the broncos that may be a different name okay and then the final of these stock questions. I've asked everybody assuming they move back. And that's something that you've definitely talked about on broncos country tonight here with me on the podcast And and just in passing. And i was kind of with you too especially once they went and signed those corners. I think moving back the way. I'd probably vote if i had to make a pick one way or another. So if they were going to move back. Give me a name or two that you like in the teens and then if they move back just to give you an example steve atwater serve. They ended up in the twenties. He'd really like naji harris Not necessarily even in the teens. But in the twenty so Give me some names. You like in those scenarios well. I do like nausea harris And i think he would be a natural successor to evolve and gordon for this offense gordon who may or may not be back after this season based on that contract other players that i would really enjoy personally Zaven collins linebacker tulsa. I think he's versatile he can come down hill side or go away from the football. I think he'd be a great fit for vic fangio's defense I wouldn't mind. Cna j. okay out of notre dame. Although i'm a little less enamored with him that i think most people are locally but david collins at seventy pounds. I think that's probably the name. I would really really hope if they moved back. All right and then when it gets into the draft setup. We know it's george payton's call but how much influence do you think vic fangio and i guess for for the sake of this conversation john elway will have in terms of influencing said influence twice there but in terms of having year. How much weight will he put into their opinions. I george payton's zone man. And i think he took this job because you know he wants to be his own man. I think john elway is there for institutional knowledge and those kinds of things in a in a natural passing of the torch. But you know make no mistake. This off season has been all george peyton and i suspect the draft. We all george payton as well He may turn to elway for for advice. But i doubt that and that voice should be considered. But i doubt that john elway israeli exerting much of a voice in the room. Yeah i guess. I'm right there with you In us really good question of george peyton his press conference where he asked if i believe described it as a dumbbell approach the way they did things in in minnesota and getting dumped but that they want picks early and they want picks late obviously they traded a pick for teddy bridgewater. So we know what yours. Peyton's first year. And rick spielman even said in his pre-draft media availabilities interested to see what george payton does. What's likelihood that we see not one but multiple traits from george peyton to acquire more picks here in his first draft or you know in subsequent drafts is highly likely i. You know the philosophy that they laid out minnesota oklahoma a barbell approach dumbbell might accidentally get the wrong idea but a barbell approach where you see at fat on both ends at the front end of the back of the draft and then kind of They'll trade out of those middle picks in order to to make sure they get everything they want on the back end. I wouldn't be surprised to see that I wouldn't be surprised to see trade multiple times to make that happen. I think george payton's kind of had that mantra about building the war chest and you know as a new general managers first year having that rolling capital going forward from draft draft. I think is huge. So i would not be shocked to see that at all well. It feels like semantics but barbells tend to be a little narrower on the ends then. Most dumbbells have founder ends. That's all i'm saying. Well i didn't want him to think. I was called him. Dumbbell that that's fair. So all right circle back around and i know that your mock draft was out there. And and scrutinized analyzed braise. Whatever it may be a and really the praise won't come until the end of the round on on dra- you know night one of the draft thursday night but maybe you'll change your mind just in this conversation from your from your mock draft. Nonetheless broncos stick at nine and whether the players in person Shake roger goodell's hand and give them a hug or their virtual back home with their family. Who's the player that the broncos select if they stay at nine well it depends on how everything falls but if it falls pretty similar to the way that i laid out rashawn slater i think would be the non quarterback pick there. I've seen other names. Michael parsons etc. I don't think that's necessarily it so for me. I i i'm guessing sean slater right now. it's kind of what i'll roll with. If the right quarterback fell that it could be it. But we're gonna go ahead and say that Rush up sean slater and then just as i have you on your out the door give me a couple of names in subsequent around second third fourth physics seventh that you wouldn't be surprised if they ended up in orange and blue. You'd like to see her really wouldn't wouldn't be shack sandwich. Grant if he's air forty natural successor to kareem jackson little bit further on down. If they don't get those linebackers you could see you could see a barren browning or djibril cox Another safety later on under cisco out of syracuse. That's another one you could. You could possibly see here And then a running back you know maybe reminder stevenson it out oklahoma all guys i think you could see in the mid browns have five available stuff ben looking forward to three days of your involvement with our draft coverage beginning at three o'clock on thursday.

March 8 Hour 1 Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos | CSU Drops Last One to Nevada, Severely Pressuring on Their March Madness Odds

"Five minutes after the twelve o'clock hour good afternoon northern colorado. It is the whole show powered by energy and as always. I'm live from the articles in specialist studios. If i'm just trying to keep track of everything we got. We got conference awards coming out like crazy. Good news for for all of 'em. Uncc issue see you getting into conference championship week. A lot of games coming up short time to talk about it. So we got all that plus the Nba all star game. Nicole ioka didn't stuff the stat sheet by any means. But i think he kinda stole the show just with his attitude and the kind of guy is so. We're going to talk about that a little bit later on. But first and foremost one of my good friends zak stevens one of my good friends that i've only met via this show. It's kind of crazy. Zak stevens gray guy from dvr broncos ac my man how how was the weekend grady. What's going on it was. It was great not event folk. But that's going to change soon brady. I'm just enjoying these next couple of days. Where broncos news is on the down low until it all explodes next week. We are one week away from the legal tampering period. To begin in of course just so weird that there's illegal tampering period. It's such a strange time. You can't talk to him now. You can have the same conversations next week but don't do it in this period of time It's always kind of interesting. Yeah it certainly is and then of course. Legal tampering period open monday. And there's forty eight hours until it officially begins when you can sign players so bizarre. Do you ever see okay. You're in the thick of this all the time with the broncos information but really all of the nfl news and legalities. And all that. I mean do you ever just like step back and say this is. This is kind of absurd. Some the rules that they have both sometimes even on the field but certainly off the field some of the rules surrounding the nfl. Oh my gosh. Of course the just like you said not just with on the field stuff but you know at the end of the day. This is a game and it. It's so funny with with how serious things are taken. And i understand how you know when when the games being played how serious it is but all of the formalities that come with because brady and all honesty the legal tampering period. Another reason why it's kind of a joke is because the the illegal tampering period. Pretty much start at the combine. So actually that kind of throw the an interesting curve in all of this that there was no combine so there really hasn't been much illegal tampering going on up to this point so we've seen a lot of deals in the past where right when the legal tampering period opens. It opens it. You know noon we see deals. Come down at twelve one for you know five years hundred million dollars way you can do that. But but here's the thing with this year is we actually may not see those things happen. We may see you know. A couple hours can negotiate the hundred million dollar deal so it may be a tad bit different in that sense. Yeah no question. it's bizarro world for sure. All right so last week. We had you on of course friday With the breaking news. Justin simmons getting the franchise tech all signs point to something getting done between between justice. Simmons and the broncos so for now. I'm going to chalk that one up to a positive not gonna worry about it right. I'm not going to stress about it anymore until we hear otherwise ac but the next thing on the list how about von miller sounds sounds like charges will not be filed against von so we can clear that out of the way and now. It's it's all football here. Is that the gist of that side of it. It's all football. And that's how george peyton wanted to make this decision and now we know that for sure That news came down on friday but in about a week to make that decision. Whether or not to pick up on miller's contract option and brady. I've been saying on this show for weeks and months now to this point that i did not think there was any chance. Von miller was going to be back with the broncos and twenty twenty one under the contract that he has now which is twenty two million cap hit eighteen million dollars in cash and only four million dollars in dead money and i have to change that. I think there's a chance that they just pick that up and proceed with that one year left on his deal just because of how. It's coming down to right now. You see the market shaping up. Jj watts two year thirty one million dollar contract that he got that sets up a market where it's going to be very hard to ask miller to pay to take a pay cut and if you're going to ask him to take a pay cut down to fifteen and a half million well then you're also going to be extending him for one or two more years and maybe at the end of the day george peyton just says you know what we're just gonna roll with von miss your see what he has left coming off the injury coming out coming off an eight sacks season i'd rather be tied up to von for one year eighteen million than let's say three years fifty five million something like that if you'd have to give them an extension now so i wouldn't be shocked now if they do go down the route of just picking up that contract option. I do think that george peyton wants to get that number down. But i what what's it gonna be is gonna be a one year fifteen million dollar deal where they bring that cap it down from twenty two to fifteen. Maybe and i think that's the deal that a lot of could get behind but originally a lot of people were thinking that maybe von down to you know ten twelve million with the court case now settled in him not going to be charged in along with the way the market setting up man. You may have no choice. But to pick up that option What a difference. A few weeks and a big. Jj watt signing. What a difference. All this stuff really makes okay. So all right. So we're thinking maybe von stays. And maybe there's no movement. As far as the price tag for vaughn and we just stick with it. What does that do when we moved down the line looking at kareem jackson because again they're still a lot of broncos fans out there that are hopeful. Somehow some way at shawn watson trade happens but don't you have to start being pretty careful if you keep vaughn's contract in denver. What do we have left here. You got your. If you take care of kareem jackson he pick up that option. You hope to sign maybe a free agent or two and then obviously you have to have some leftover for rookie. So what does that do for for some of those big names. Kareem to sean draft free agency. Yeah well what it does brady is. The broncos are sitting in a great position with forty five million dollars in cap space. Top five in the nfl. But if you keep vaughn us you keep kareem. You pick up his option. He's gonna cost you. Twelve point eight million dollars against the cap and then you sign shelby harris. Let's say three years thirty million ten million dollars for him And you also pick up. Second round tender options for tim. Patrick phillip lindsay and alexander johnson. That's going to cost you over ten million dollars in total for them. Once you do all of those things then you have no more money left to you. Get sign anyone else so what it means. Free agency is actually going to be boring. Because it's going to be keeping all of your own players and less. George peyton wants to really kick the can down the road and let's say instead of picking up bonds option. They give him Two years or three year contract for fifty million dollars and they backload it so a lot of the cap fits come in year. Two and your three to free up some money. This your same a cream jackson. They could rework An extension for him if shelby harris deal that he's likely to get if that comes in the form of a three year deal and they kick the can down the road for them. They could do that to free up a lotta cap space this year but brady my question would be. Why would you do that. You know if the broncos were in wind now mode and legitimate went out. Then i get kicking the can down the road but you don't wanna be the new orleans saints Where they're having to just cut a restructure everyone on their team because they've kicked the can down the road so long and the biggest difference between the saints doing that when they had drew brees and had legitimate. Super bowl contention was was just that they were a contender. So it made sense for them to do that. i in kick it down to a time when they won't really gonna content once drew brees left but now with the broncos. Why would you do that when you're not really contending this year in fact i would do the opposite if i was george peyton if i'm signing shelby harris up to a three year deal. I'm frontloading it. So that when the broncos are ready to compete in two or three years from now that contract is only you know five million dollars in salary cap and then so you can spend the rest of that money on getting free agents here. So you're absolutely right. The broncos are are aren't in a bad spot any journey a good spot. But don't expect forty five million dollars to come to turn into you know two or three big time for agents zach. How much do you typically want to want to see as far as rookie contracts. Go how much are you reserving. Their you save just under ten million dollars so a lot of people will say seven. It's easy just to say. Keep ten million available. So that's exactly it. You take ten million away okay. Broncos dealing with about thirty five million dollars cap space this year. i'm yeah. I'm doing the math as you're talking and yeah you dwindle down pretty pretty quickly not leaving any room for like you said free agent so it is very interesting and this is something that i wondered about as soon as as soon as george peyton was hired and we. We didn't have all the shawn watson. Talk i i wondered if denver maija just stay the course because it's this weird twitter year with the ownership situation but then of course is the shawn watson story started go a wondered about von miller. Of course we talked about justice simmons but it might just come all the way back to now. You know what. We're gonna stay. The course here and as george payton said build through the draft yup exactly build through the draft. Stay the course. And then you know you get a better evaluation on drew. Lock george payton. He told us on thursday he gets to see him for the first time in person now he's met him in person because drew's been in the facility to work out but he's never watched him in person play and you know a general manager to really wants to do that so he gets to see that maybe he picks up a gardener. Men's shoe to also add some competition to add some excitement to if he can turn anything out of that but then he also gets to okay. What is von miller is he. The von miller That that he was a couple of years ago. Or is he the von miller where you know maybe a little more injury prone and when he does play he's more of a half a sack per game type of player Kareem jackson and so if he stays the route i would understand why he's doing that just to be able to see everything on his own with a six year contract. He has the time to do that but then just think about the sweeping changes that could happen next year. Under george payton. When he's been on the job for fourteen months you know free up tons of money with von miller off the books tons of money with kareem jackson off the books and then he can make a huge play for quarterback whether that's trading up in the first round where that strapping a guy in the first round or you know hack. Maybe the texans still haven't resolved into shawn watson situation and go that route so i wouldn't be shocked and that was one of the first things i was told when george peyton was hired from source they said. Don't be surprised if george peyton really just takes us back to evaluate how everything's going on this year before making any big time moves. No it'll all be very interesting to see what he ultimately. Does your one of year two could be really crazy. How about phillip lindsay. What do we know about the situation. What do we know about the tender situation for phillip lindsay at this point well as george payton said last week he wants to keep every single bronco. That was on the team last year. But what he didn't say was at what cost and when it comes down to two phillip lindsay and the koenders. The broncos are going to tender phillip lindsay. Tim patrick and alexander johnson. But they're still deciding what tenders to us. And that's obviously the biggest thing here because the broncos could use a first or second round tender first round tender costs four and a half million dollars per year for each claire second round tender cost three and a half million dollars per year for each player. And what that does for any of those guys. It guarantees pretty much that they're going to be broncos in twenty twenty one now if the broncos using original round tender it means the broncos will not get anything back in draft compensation if one of those guys assigned by another team but it will allow them to match the contract for one of those guys and because phillip lindsay was undrafted. There won't be any compensation if you put an original round tend to run brady to me. It only makes sense to put a second round tender phillip. Lindsay alexander johnson. And tim patrick. If you put a second round tender their back for three and a half million dollars for one season no teams gonna sign those guys and have to give up a second round. Pick to the broncos however if you mess around you put an original round tender on you'll save a million dollars on each guy. And i think that any of those guys will be gone so to me. It is very straightforward. The broncos won any of these guys back including phillip lindsay. Stick a second round tender on them and then they'll be back if you don't you're saying that you don't really want them that much well and if you don't with phillip lindsay then you're you know obviously there's so much. Stock put into melvin gordon. One way or the other. We don't even know what that suspension situation looks like if you don't keep phillip lindsay than aren't you in the market for a running back in the draft and i'm talking probably maybe as high as third round if not more. So if you move on from lindsey and unsure about gordon's only one year left on the contract anyway. Yeah absolutely. I mean if you're not bringing eight one of these guys back regardless of who it is. You are absolutely in the quarterback camp right now. And let's say for some reason you keep phillip lindsay and you move on from melvin gordon And then the here's the situation for your brady. I do think it would be a day two pick but what happens. If the broncos trade back from nine to eighteen something like that in the first round and then eighteen to twenty six george peyton just really wants to accumulate picks which we know he wants to do what if you trade back and then the best player on the board is nausea harris and you could go running back there and that that would be something. But you're you're right. You're not going to do something like that. If you have. Both philip and melvin. But i wouldn't be surprised. If the broncos make a move running back down boy everything you're telling me today zach. It almost sounds like again. We could be surprised. But we're going to run this back. We're gonna see what this group has obviously build in the draft a little bit but who knows how many of those guys will make an immediate impact next year but for the most part. It sure sounds like we're we're going to see almost everybody back that was on this roster last year. Yeah that's what george dayton wants to do now. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a surprising move. Where the broncos aren't able to to get a deal with May maybe a von maybe kareem or shelby and one of those guys moved on but for the most part brady. It's just to be a very similar squad to last year. If if they don't get something worked out with vaughn and like you said it's starting it's starting to sound like there's going to be something happening one way. Or the other with vaughn and staying with bronco if not does that change everything. Then to the broncos do do they get aggressive and i'm looking at the free agency list and there's there's definitely some big names middle inside. Linebacker is going to be the launch levante. david's name. I know that's come up a few times right now. Wouldn't seem possible. But if you're not going to go with vaughn if you can't work it out whatever. Do you see denver. Then turning around saying all right we're gonna get aggressive and get somebody in free agency. Yep absolutely that. The von miller contract is i think where it comes down to. If the broncos spent money on free agents are not if they move on from von boom there's eighteen million dollars that they can use on any free agent that they want. That could get you to very very good players or obviously like an incredible player. Von miller type of player is what that money could get. If you keep vaughn and assuming that everything else stays relatively the same of course. You've already tagged justin simmons yet you keep shelby harris. Can't let him go then brady. The money's just not gonna be there for anything like you said it could be It's going to be interesting for the broncos to see who they keep from this roster but like you like you alluded to free agency outside of denver zone. Guys might be pretty boring. Exactly what he working on forest man that we can check out in the next couple of days breaking down. What the broncos are going to do with all of their own free agents so they're gonna let these guys walk. Are they gonna keep them here. And of course brady just getting ready for the craziness of what's going to come in the next week. I'm going goodness sack appreciation. Always man and Yeah we'll see maybe we do get thrown a couple of surprises down through the through the next couple of weeks. We'll we'll catch up with you next week. They i look forward to it. Thanks brady time and zak stevens. Vr broncos well. There you go now. The situation is interesting with vaughn. Now you have that the files. A against von were dropped. Charges will be filed. I guess i should say so. He's in the clear there now. It's all about football and what you wanna do going forward. That whole situation is bizarre colfax. We didn't get a lot of information on this. All we know is that vaughan's ex girlfriend i wanna say could it be ex-fiancee possibly ex girlfriend. They were breaking up going through issues. She became pregnant. It was You know we kind of found around about wave on wasn't crazy about that. I don't know how much truth there is to some of the tweets and texts. He sent or whatever. I'm not gonna get into that too much but then when it came to okay there might be some assault charges or something like that. She made it very clear on her own accounts that there was never anything like that ever. No physical altercations whatsoever was never that guy and then that was kind of the last. We heard of it other than the police officials basically saying. We're investigating it well today. It's dropped so i much ado about nothing. I don't know again. I i did. That's that's where we are at this point. You know it's the innocent until proven guilty. So i would imagine. We're moving right along. In this situation with vaughn. So now it comes down to well it does. It does come down to do the broncos. Just run this back. Pave on do they really want von miller and if they do do they just want for the year for a test run and that's a pretty expensive test run right eighteen million dollars and if that's the case okay we we stay here or you sign him for two to three years and you work out a deal but then you're locked in if von has hit that wall if he's hit the proverbial wall and he's not good anymore now. You're locked in to two to three years and you don't. You don't know if you wanna do that just yet. So maybe they go that route kareem jackson. His money is in the books right now. So i mean it shows the f thirty five million left picking up that option with cream. Do you work out a deal. Long-term deal where that comes down a little bit into this year we'll see phillip lindsay is the interesting one. What tender are they putting on if they put if he's at his original undrafted around that would pay him two point. Thirteen million dollars. If the broncos put an original undrafted round tender on him he would get two point. Thirteen million dollars next year and that also means that a team but that doesn't mean a team has a better chance of going after him for even three million knowing they don't have to trade a second round pick if you slap a second round tender on him that means that not only do. The broncos have to approve trade are proven pickup because they can match it if a team offers him anything. Let's say three million dollars. They would also have to give denver a second round pick. That is too expensive for phillip lindsay. Phillip lindsay is not worth a. He's not worth a a second round pick. I don't even know what kind of pick he is So ultimately if you go with the undrafted re first round or undrafted around yeah you open it up. He's going to get to see what's out there. And then denver. We'll get to decide if they wanna match it. I can't imagine lindsay at this stage getting much more than two or three million dollars. At the beginning of last season. I thought six million seems reasonable but his injuries his lack of production way down. He's not really receiving back. So i don't see him making much more than that and if you slap a second round tender on him he safe because no one's going to do that so i guess we're gonna find out you know alexander johnson. I like him. He's he's an energetic player. But he's not like a sound linebacker that's going to be. I think you know. He's a high energy. is he a sound kennedy. Cover these titans. That's what you're looking for. Because you've got a lot of tight ends in the afc west specifically travis kelsey so you need to find somebody that can help bracket those tight. It's that'll be interesting. Tim patrick tim patrick's really intriguing. Because he signed him. Suddenly you know you. Are you overloaded at the wide receiver position because courtland sutton is coming back. Tim patrick probably makes the least amount of sense for me. Just given the fact that you're getting courtland sutton back you have jerry jeudy you have caja hamler. Patrick might be over. All of those receivers right now save for courtland sutton twenty seven minutes after the hour lot to bust into today joker in the all star game we're talking colorado state big news for niko medved.

He didn't tear it up stat wise but he's so funny so humble. He's a great team. May everybody loves this guy which is then great for the denver nuggets to get this kind of guy. Let's get to the good the bad and the ugly from the weekend that was of course the good the bad and the ugly presented by f-famous bank banking made simple. Yeah the good for me. All right joker was he had six points. He had only two turnovers seven rebounds five assists his plus minus though was plus twenty three only chris. Paul had a better plus minus than him in the in the all star game last night. His team team lebron wins one hundred seventy to one hundred fifty fear expecting defense. Don't you you're not gonna get it but nicole yokich was was was awesome. I in your pocket heist hands by yoko. Play right now. They're just. They're like best friends out there. You got you honest and joker just jumping up and down like this is pretty cool colfax i don i mean carmelo was always well respected and all that right but he was never like almost like the best friend jokers like everybody wants to be friends with this guy. It's it's awesome. Joker gave janas crap to janas gets a breakaway dunk. He's going to dunkin jokers right behind him and basically tells the media like why didn't you bounce it off the backboard it would have been the prettiest dunk in the history of the all star game. I love joker man. I love him even more now. He's humble. He's team i. He's not a typical sports superstar. His dega tells itself too seriously. It's awesome the bad well. We were set for unc basketball. On saturday we have more covert issues with weaver state. and that's how the regular season wraps for the bears. Now they're in the big sky conference tournament. It has not been the season at all that that i predicted it would be for the bears to massive kovin breaks in their schedule so now they set their sights toward wednesday. Nine o'clock in the morning. Colefax get your coffee ready. The bears going at it against sex state. You you got. You're not going to lose your coffee this extra an extra one line around. I think it'd be okay. Let's just get number one worry about win. Number one getting win in the tournament would be nice the ugly another one colorado state. Now do they have to go to the mountain west conference championship to make it into the march madness. They lose to nevada over the weekend. Timeout won't take it three seconds. Sherefield for the way suit. Yeah that hurt. That one really really heard nevada wins that game tough place to play the winning a buzzer beater. Basically see us. You got into the tournament as a number three seed. And they'll now wait. They don't play wednesday. They'll play thursday. They'll play mexico or fresno who both teams fresno destroyed both times new mexico just recently beat up on So i mean they should get past that second round of the playoffs. That is our power to play. Sports poll quick playoffs the conferment. Our power play. Sports poll question of the day is available at the whole show dot com. How far will the colorado state rams men's basketball team go in the mountain west tournament. And the reason. I'm asking this question. Because i'm getting all the wiry asking about the bears. Why aren't you asking about the most. I'll be real honest. There's no pressure on the buffs. Like yeah it's awesome to win your conference tournament but it's all about getting into march madness for me. It's like the super bowl. It's getting in getting a chance to compete with the best in the nation conference ornaments are great. Unc bears colfax. I'm gonna tell you man. The odds of the bears. Winning this conference tournament are not good. But that's how they have to get in for. cs you. It's not just about winning the tournament in just winning. A couple of games might get into the tournament or it might might not to me. That's more a little more compelling today because yes. Unc has to go in and do the unthinkable and win the whole damn thing from the i don't have a first round bye. See issue needs to win. Two games probably needs to win their second. Round and win the semi-final go to the championship and states on the other side of the bracket. So that's good but that second round semifinals will probably see ceus. You take on utah state. So that's the way that looks and they split in the regular season so that one to me is the big one. Let's see what the whole again they're saying again. Go to the whole show dot com to vote forty two percent of the whole against have the rams losing in the semi-finals. That's the majority vote. They're losing the semi finals. So that means they win. The first ran their second round game. And then they lose the next and colefax. That's not going to be enough. I if they would beat nevada and then one maybe so. But that's still. That's still iffy. Our poll question. Friday was how many more wins. A lot of. You said three. Which would have been nevada and then winning in basically advancing to the to the mountain west championship. So it's gonna be tough. It's going to be very tough. Get that first one under your belt. That's that's it it's all you worry about. Is that first game. Get that one. And then boy. Third friday friday will be absolutely madness. Absolute madness going up against utah state. So a lot of big ones see you will take on either cow or stanford well. They worked stanford twice. They worked cow wants. But if you remember see you lost to cow two weeks ago and we thought the sky was falling. But then the buffs come back. They strike they lost oregon but it was a great game tad boyle felt good about that one even though it was a loss and then they went on a four game winning streak a lot different than last year. They went on a five game losing streak including their first game in the tournament. So much better. Feel for the colorado buffaloes a couple of accolades to throw out there too. I'll get to more of these later. But congratulations first and foremost to. Niko medved. he. He's was named by the mountain west conference media members as the coach of the year in the conference. So really awesome for him to get that award David roddy was named first team mountain. West isaiah isaiah. Stevens was named second team mountain west. So congratulations to both. I'm still waiting on pac twelve information. I would imagine. Mckinley right is going to be named the pac twelve player of the year. As for you and see bodey hume and matt johnson. Both named third team big sky conference wasn't the season that bodey wanted. I think i honestly thought he was going to be competing for the big sky player of the year. Just didn't come down to it. It was i mean. He wasn't a terrible year for body but it wasn't a big sky. Mvp caliber year. Now put up for a frustrating season behind you because it was. It was frustrating for all of these guys and actually i'm hosting a zoom called night. We do our basketball and banter. I hosted with coach steve smiley updating the round ball folks and donors and people that are just involved in the program. We're going through a few things. We're gonna talk about some of the struggles that we saw throughout the year within. I'm doing that doing that. From home via zoom. So that'll be. That'll be exciting. I always love being a part of that thirty nine minutes after the hour. Colfax before we break thing on the rocks liquor celebrating their tenth anniversary. And we do this every week.

Kfi foul former colorado buffaloes quarterback and you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten ks k. Forty five minutes after the hour. Welcome back show shout to no limit collectibles man this this time years this crazy because we're in crossover right. We're getting ready for the second half of the nba conference tournaments going on. We got march madness right around the corner baseball. Whether you're excited about the rockies are not baseball is coming up in less than a month the rockies will start you'll hear rockies game here by the way starting on april first which is kind of weird fitting for the situation but i just think about like great great players and a new seasons and middle seasons and chances to be absolutely fantastic and i and i think about no limit collectibles and the capture. All those moments you know. I just got a few things. That i'm in the process of hanging up in my behalf. Man cave. I want to say it's not that i'm half man but it's half man cave because most of it is play area for my child to run around. I get this tiny little corner with a couch and a tv and then up all my sports stuff still good enough for me. I'm surrounded by it. And i like it so we're in the process of hanging more stuff definitely hadn't into nola limit collectibles next week actually to take a look at anything in. Listen if they don't have exactly what you're looking for then ask them because our guy can finds ways to get stuff. He knows a few things. That's no limit collectibles seriously. There's no limit to what you can collect. Buy sell or trade basketball cards football cards baseball cards. You got it if you want to buy could buy new stuff or bring in some old stuff that you think might be worth something again no limit collectibles. He side. Chris says the ugly took joker as mvp to align up. One dollar also says go get. Mccaffrey let the chips fall. It's not happening. He said chris. I've just just not going to happen. Mclean getting in here again first. Advantage text line nine seven four seven eight thirteen o one if you're new to the show number. The nuggets will never win a ring as long as the nba continues to allow super teamsters form at least in the nfl. Everyone gets a chance. Not just the big market teams. I hope that changes this year if it's not the nuggets. I hope it's utah. I know nobody likes utah. Whatever i've always enjoyed carl's teams. I was always rooting for them and a big nuggets fan but always rooting a little bit harder. Because they were. They weren't made of superstars. They were homegrown guys. Or lack of a better term rejects trades from other teams. The danilo gallinari is the kenneth reads And they were able to sustain success. Not great success can never get past that first round. But i really was hoping they could prove that you can still win without going out and acquiring two three stars doing what brooklyn's doing right now and in the nuggets here we go again. They have a superstar in yokich. They have kind of a semi superstar and jamal murray. They have a chance to upset the norm. I mean the jazz kind of their homegrown superstars too. So i mean yeah. The odds aren't good. It's going to be the lakers. It's going to be the clippers. It's going to be the nets. But i'm hopeful that you can st- this. Nba's changing the. Maybe maybe you get guys that stick with teams honestly like portland with damian lillard stick with teams and hope that they can draft another star. But yeah you're right. I mean there's a difference between it. Listen so people golden state. There is a difference between what golden state did and what brooklyn's doing and what miami did golden state built that team from the ground up and then after winning a title they went out and got kevin durant. Got one guy to come in. I have no issue with that. More so on kevin durant than i do golden state. But what brooklyn's doing i mean. Yeah you're just assembling all these great guys and they're all buddies and they're texting and they're they're screwing over teams. James harden really not giving it his all with houston and then going away. So you're right. I mean these major market teams are frustrating. Forty nine minutes after the hour. Take a short break when we come back. Let's talk about the joker. I'll get to my game of the week as well. I always put that together for you on monday. You can check out my games the week. Each and every week at the whole show dot com. We'll take a short break. Wrap up our number one number one already. My goodness more on the denver broncos more on conference championship week. It is a busy busy week here. And we're pumped to be talking about all of its the whole show powered by. Pdc energy live from the article. Asian specialist studios think your bracket can win it all joy. The whole shows bracket challenge and hear the latest in hoops on thirteen ten kfi k. a. The power trip weekdays at eleven and thirteen ten kfi a steep fairchild fairchild qb training dot com and you are listening to the whole show on thirteen ten kfi k. a. Well second half of the nba season well for the nuggets. Anyway begins on friday. Think some teams get back in action on wednesday and it's the push for the for the playoffs. It's the push for a better seed right now but it's also it's also a push for for nicole yokich and the mvp watch. I would say it's joel embiid leading the way right now and that the the big difference is while they're the number one team in the eastern conference. They have what third-best fourth best record in the nba denver sitting at sixth twenty one fifteen. They're not that far behind philadelphia but there in the west so some work needs to be done. I think you can make a case. Joker can keep those numbers you could make a case. They need to finish in fourth or third the worst. They could finish so not that far away. I mean the lakers are sitting at twenty four and thirteen at number three phoenix. Twenty four and eleven utah. Twenty seven nine the best record in basketball. And we'll see that's going to be the push but it was a lot of fun seeing joker inaction and just following his career from day. One thing about how his career him in the yousef norwich thing started at center. He was supposed to be there next. Big man. they're guy. There's maybe a star joker comes in and they like him and then they wanna try. Starting both of them yousef at center joker at debt at power forward. That didn't work and then they moved on from yousef and it was. It was all joker after that. Pretty cool more on that coming up conference championship. We'd colfax my games of the week. It's not just a regular game. It was too hard for me to do it. I couldn't i couldn't just pick up game so i'm just gonna say mountain west big sky. Pac twelve conference tournaments and it starts on wednesday morning. Unc playing on the first of all of those games against sacramento state. Head is it. Nine o'clock colfax believe and we're still double checking a believe if they win We will not have a show on thursday so we will get that game started. I think at twelve o'clock with a pre game at eleven thirty. So that's if they win if they lose their done and everything. I've heard about the it and all that stuff. Some of them aren't even have tournaments and then is going to be very strict on who is leading in only a few a few teams getting in so. I'm told for the most part that if the bears lose no matter what even if the option presented itself. There's no other option to play beyond. You know this game on wednesday. If they lose second hour we're going to get into more of the conference schedules. The matchups how you see see us. You will match up against their respective second round teams or for unc first round teams nba. Second half of the season. The biggest storylines. What are the nuggets. Need to do to keep this consistency. Going what can we expect with this. Mike malone lineup. More on the broncos von miller phillip lindsay so much more second hour coming up next.

BK welcomes Aric Dilalla

"Will be no deaths by inches. This is the broncos daily. Putt jazz town with brandon. Krisztal want everything. All the meatballs and foster happy wednesday broncos country excited. Uh bring an interview. I did with eric. Lal from the denver broncos website air because a really good dhabi s. Good questions press conferences. And when i hear him talking to players in the locker room i i just think he. He has a good perspective on how he looks at things and and how he covers football. You'll hear that in the conversation We talk a lot about the broncos new executive kelly klein who's going to have her hands a lot of different areas Working very closely with george payton on the football side. She's going to be also in charge of the video room the equipment department as well as college scouting and and then she's a special advisor i think is what eric told me So we'll we'll get to that. Plus roman phifer longtime nfl linebacker and a teammate of george. Payton's at ucla we'll We'll discuss his role as well. And then in just a minute. Let you hear the little snippet of a long conversation. We talked to mike for over forty five minutes shelby harrison. I did for our very first. Shell-shocked full episode shelby harris podcast. Which you gonna come out every thursday. I will drop tomorrow. So i urge you to go to wherever you're listening to this podcast fine. Shell-shocked subscribe sign up and then reviews as well because that helps. I guess keep our podcast at the top of mind and again shelby's podcast gonna be the only podcast that a active nfl players. Doing at least as best. I can tell right now because richard sherman on the team. And i'm not sure he's even still doing his same podcast with chris. Collins worth in greg olson had one but he's retired. And i i was doing some research and may maybe someone complained to me. I couldn't find another active. Nfl player with a podcast. So maybe someone can can correct me an interesting week though and broncos country to this point because you had the start of ota's mike klis out there counting people's Attendants seventy one was a number. He came up with but a lot of vets weren't part of that. Seventy one justin simmons. No new mcmahon is no shelby harris Among others for phase two which has just onfield work with coach no teamwork next week phase three starts and i think you'll see more veterans teddy bridgewater. Wasn't there this week I'm not sure who. I'll wasn't wasn't we saw drew. Lock there for sure Saw pass catchers there as well but all those guys are young guys even portland's only going into your four and coming up the knee injury. So i think he wants as much onfield working hard. He has to be in the building for his rehab every day. Anyway but i think you'll see more vets next week start to show up and then in the coming weeks leading up to a mandatory minicamp so beyond that though it's it's kind of a quiet week and i think that's okay. I mean the the broncos we make some some pretty big hires and and that in itself created buzz. Which again is why. I wanted to get eric on but i do what you hear a little bit of shelby and mike pursell on on the podcast with us talking to big mike that will come out again tomorrow so This snippet that. I'm pulling here for you. We're talking about when mike i got to denver. There's a story that fangio likes to tell. And so i ask these guys I shelby if you'd heard the story that when they brought my again essentially as a camp body That maybe with a chance to compete. That victotled john elway matt russell as well be careful because he just might like this guy and the rest is history. So that's where the starts by me asking shelby. Had you heard that no. I heard the thing is like well. We all liked them. And the thing is he is funny. He talked about when he first came in. He was helping everybody else out because we didn't we couldn't get it at first. Because i'd never played in the re defense before and so like we're all just sitting there like y'all how do you. How do you do this. And because my first couple of reps for like a you obviously know what the hell you do help us out here and so like when it all happened happened then he. He made the team as well. You know it's funny. Because like i we were talking about it. I remember that first game and they were talking about it might comes in here going in the first one by shelby. Who's like thank god. It was against trent brown and so it was like yo. You know we've always had that you know you go to knows that's where you play your best you don't need to be at in. It is to completely different games to completely from even like you know moving over to nine from zero nose to afford to complete every games and united just fits shelby says nice at that outside enough it nicely inside and i can read on our. I'd say on the bodies it does matter but you know when you say different games though is the difference really is though. It's the knows it's instant. Would you gotta type somebody. Yeah i'll add three tech. You know if we had up under four you know. at least you haven't step or two before you running right into somebody who really knows insulates. Put your hands on here now go. I'm curious about that mindset because when you're looking at a game plan especially when you're the no so shelby whether that was you're mike when that is you know well if i'm doing my job that means i'm taking up two and even three guys like you're you're almost wanting to draws much contact to allow the guys around you to go make plays in some ways. It kind of is is thankless. Let's got to be a weird approach when your whole life you're taught go get the ball right. Go get the ball carrier get the quarterback and this is just be a team player and allow those guys to to thrive. I mean. I wouldn't necessarily say i wanna take on t. Bodies three miles was the the houston game two years ago when we lead. It's at least four or five plays at three. People and switch on switch off worker was in but three people on point. We'd be blocked in one person. I mean any time you don't wanna looking back and say you got three people in one. B where free to make plays in. Its helps defense so mad at three people want somebody better go make a play seriously ninety. Yeah we're pros like i'm telling you if three people are one that means everyone has a one on go out there and if you're sitting in somebody that means it's going to be free so they don't any we're going to have a talk that's for sure auto okay so go find it so you can and it'll just be in your feed Whether it's bad cast spotify of course iheartradio and stitcher soundcloud anywhere else. Get your podcasts. The shell-shocked podcast shell-shocked podcast you can also email us at. Shell shocked pod earn. No that's twitter at shell pod or shell shocked potted g mail. We're gonna do a mail bag every week and Working on getting some some prizes maybe autographed photos from shelby if your question makes on air that's that's what we're going to hopefully work up towards here in the in the coming weeks but every thursday it's gonna come out so you got a little little glimpse of the conversation. It was fun conversation. I tried to get out of the way at t the guys up and then let them let them go and shelby podcasts. So you guys get plenty of me on this. A shell shocked. Pod is about shelby and his teammates and his friends. And and it's gonna be a lot of fun so please check that out tomorrow. All right eric. The lalla has worked with the broncos for a bunch of years as their lead website writer. and i think that's his actual title has actual title is lead writer for the broncos website. So there you go He is on twitter at eric delilah. But his parents got creative. At eric with an a. At eric delilah But he does a really good job of letting you know what's going on inside the building and he gets access to the rest of his. Don't 'cause he's a broncos employees so they when they make a higher like a new assistant to the gm and new executive and kelly klein director of football executive director football out special advisor gm. I'm reading it on on his twitter page right. Now he's gonna crack me here in just a sec But he gets a doctor. And so i urge you to go read that. And now you're due to listen to my conversation with eric. Delilah from the denver broncos leads it eric. Good to talk to you. And i appreciate any chance. I get to read your work. And i saw where you got to talk to kelly klein. The new executive with the broncos. I think our exact title is executive director of football administration and special assistant to the gm. That i now that you're close Football operations and special advisor to the gm but now pretty cool Role here that kelly's coming into okay. So you look when you work for the team. You're going to get special access that other people in town that cover the team just won't get and that's understood by. I think all of us and so you you got the chance to sit down and talk to her. And i've talked to people in the building and you see the comments from everybody in minnesota will. What were your impressions. Ever what stood out to you. I mean i just think this is someone that's really impressive is put the work in In you know there's kind of all this attention on kelly's the highest ranking woman in scouting. Nfl history in. That's great and we talked a little bit about that. And what that means to her. But i mean she's she's put the work in this. There's kind of this notion. Maybe sometimes that this is a higher. Because she's a woman and that's not the case at all. She's put the work in of she's been incredibly. Impressive has served as their manager of college scouting out. Minnesota for three years was a college scouting coordinator before that nine years out minnesota so You've seen it from everyone from vikings. Gm spielman in then. Obviously what george said it. His comments just she's been an integral part of what they do and it'll be interesting to see how her role plays out in denver. But i think she's gonna make a pretty big impact well and that sort of the next question is when you've got multiple titles and seemingly. She's going to have a lot on her plate. What exactly is her role. What's her day today because it seemed like she's got a lot under her that she's at least keeping an eye on maybe not directly in charge of specifically day in day out. But but how do you how do you take it As as to what her role is right now. Yes i think there's kind of three elements one. She's gonna manage the video equipment apartments so that's kind of the the managerial aspect of her role. I think she will continue to college to scout these college players Advance scout a pro teams in help. The team get ready for a waiver claims at the end of training camp for example and then the other element is just kind of helping george pain with special projects and we know in minnesota. She ran their draft board She handled the logistics of going to the combine the senior bowl and having in person visits with prospects that hopefully will return at some point is gonna dials down a little bit but i. I truly think she's going to have her hand at a lot of different things and we see became an in some of these roles in the front office. You're either pro guy. You're a you're a college guy. I don't think with kelly. It's going to be that cut and dry. I think she's going to be involved in a lot of different areas will end so it seems like. That's what george was right. And it's in some ways accredit to rick's billionaire and a lot of ways of credit spielman. He let george handle a lot at various points together for a long time. So your roles is going to change but it allowed him to kind of work in all these different areas where talking with agents. He's talking to guys around the league about who might be available via trade. And then he was. I think in charge of college at some point or certainly helping oversee the college scouting it almost seems like even though the title may not be the exact same that at least in in some respects he is grooming her the same way. Rick kind of groomed him is that a is that a fair observation. I mean i think that she is taking on all the sort of responsibilities that you would need to some day. Take that step into an assistant. Gm or or gm role. And you know. I think there are a lot of commonalities between what you'll be doing now and an assistant. Gm role even though she doesn't necessarily have that title at the moment In listen a general manager we can think of that as somebody who is super grown up in scouting. They've they've played the game to me. You've just got that second. Part of it. Manager is the more important thing you obviously need a fundamental understanding of the game in what you want out of a player in how you want to build a team. But you don't have to be a scout that was played football to get to that area. You need to know how to work with people you need to know how to delegate how to match up all the different things whether it's college scouting pro scouting the salary cap working with your coaching staff. That to me is is what makes a good general manager. And i think we've seen so far in a few short months that some of what makes george peyton successful is his people skills. Communication skills In your i became. I look at that night. I think of what we've heard about. Kelly clients so far and i think there's no reason that someday she couldn't be in that conversation but i asked her specifically i said do you allow yourself to think. Hey i could be a gm. One day i could be the first woman to ever hold that position in the nfl and she kinda deflected and said. I'm just focused on doing the best possible job for the broncos right now said she has a lot to learn in just wants to get to work. That's the right attitude. But i do think at some point you know. Her name could come up in those conversations. Yeah you have to think that human nature is such very few people it must be nice to be completely content with what you're doing and not think about whatever else might be out there. Whatever the next thing especially in a profession like that that is kind of a lot of ways designed to have vertical momentum until you get to the top job of gm right or top job of head coach if you will on the coaching side and so i guess her not saying it's fine but when you take a promotion and and leave a a place you're comfortable. That was close to home then. Obviously i would think the goal is to keep moving up my question about her taking this job here with all of the glowing words from rick spielman and other people in minnesota is. Why didn't keep her there and give her a job. Similar to georgia's or a job similar to this right. That's a good question. Not one that i necessarily know the answer to. I think it all depends what what the setup is in the vikings front office. Obviously george has the opportunity now to kind. Sit up his front office the way he wants to. He came in and he kept the staff intact. We haven't heard of any you know reductions yet to the front office hired roman phifer as senior personnel executive. Who was in detroit. The so. he's got this chance now to build this front office the way he wants to. And so maybe it's a little bit different in You know theory or in practice of hell. Minnesota does things in. This gives them a chance to let kelly wear hats whereas maybe in minnesota set up differently. Not quite sure. But it's clear that he prioritized her and don't think it was an accident that she was announced his first hire will. Yeah and talking to folks in the building about wind george would hire a right hand man or in this case a right hand woman it. It sounded like it was going to be after the draft when you find out that. She ran the vikings draft board. You're probably not gonna be able to get her in the middle of the pre-draft process to to come here and in earlier mid-march after you know maybe free agency dies down a little bit The the time line was such that i imagine helping coordinate everything with stacking that draft board. Well before the the football season ended right so it does make sense and your point about. It's not a it's not. you don't think it's an accident that he was her first higher. I i get that. And then the second higher roman phifer who you mentioned and some folks remember and being around here as a linebackers coach with josh mcdaniels certainly A fifteen year career with three super bowls. I don't know why i knew he went to ucla. But the second. I saw the higher. I'm like oh he's used to. And then i go and immediate look it up and it's like oh he enjoys. Were there together all four years so not that anything in. Footballs and but clearly. There's a relationship. I guess. I'll be curious to see how much of what his role ends up evolving into. Because it sounds like he's going to have a kind of a hybrid role as well. Yeah you know from what. I've heard it sounds like he'll be both in the building a ucla training center center and on the road out there scouting. So you're right. It'll be interesting to see what that split is cause for people who don't know i mean most of the time you don't see scouts the majority of the year they're gone they come back in. You know every once in a while for a draft meeting or to get prepped for certain free agency. is there a pro scout. But you don't see these guys that much so if roman phifer around the building that will certainly be a little bit of a departure from what's normal but maybe that's we've heard george talk a lot about a collaborative environment hearing from all these different people and this can be part of that was. Let me ask you this week. It felt like or seems like from from a distance. Now we'll get to watch a little bit of practice next week. The rest of the media. But you're in and around the the team to whatever level you can be and and i guess you can correct me if if you're not allowed over on that side of the trains entered all because for folks don't know your offices in the pablo field fieldhouse and obviously the players. Locker room is in in the main. Ucla string center building. But does it feel more normal. Right there were seventy upwards of seventy something guys thanks. Mike klis the other day that we're here for phase two of ota's can you get that sense kind of just around the building. That feels closer. Normal. yes. I mean as you've seen. Nfl still is in that tiered system So we're kind of limited as to win. We can be in there. But i would say in general it does feel like it's getting closer to normal Nfl is obviously announced this policy. That if you have been fully vaccinated you don't have to wear a mask If you're staff our players. I think we're getting hopefully closer to that number every day But but yeah. I think when you're around the building this offseason there is a sense maybe Hopefulness that things are getting closer to normal. And i think a lot of that just has to do with the kobe restrictions. And obviously there's you know it does feel closer to normal season because you have this offseason program now which i'm sure a guy like drew lock in desperately us but just in the in the day-to-day operation in terms of being around each other again. I think it's getting closer to to what we're used to. And then another thing about just the mood in the building. Because again i get everything secondhand because i'm not in the building but talking to some of your colleagues coworkers. The mood that george payton said or the tone that he is set certainly seems welcomed in and i'm not being critical john elway but any boss. That's in the same place for a decade. It's going to at times. Perhaps feel stale and i think that's part of the reason john got to the point he did. And joe ellis. Where where john decided. Step away from the day to day. And george comes in a football life or taking his first. Gm gig after passing up so many other potential opportunities. What can you tell me about the mood. Kind of from the top down. I think it's a conversation that happens between you and your coworkers just how it feels and again not being critical john. Just sometimes things are different. Aussie this about an nfl building. Just in general is that say somebody gets hurt. Midseason like like courtland sutton for example tearing his acl last year outside the building. There's always this kind of feeling of panic. Or what do we do now in. A you know with the number of injuries. At the broncos had last year. I think it certainly added up But any singular injury or something that's thrown at the team that's unexpected while people are freaking out inside outside the building. I think there's always this this sort of call in kind of what do we do next. End You know you move forward and i think that that's maybe what people wouldn't expect any singular thing like there's always this sort of you know like the the ocean is not rocket too much. It's always pretty calm. And so while. I do think that you know people have been happy to see. George get going and i would say. He seems like a natural in the role. I don't think that there's been much of an adjustment period. He's he's hit the ground running. And i think it's been great to see him around when i've been able to and seems like a natural in the position but i think the building just kind of operates in a way where you move forward and you take the next step from free agency to draft the season and everybody does their job in. You know. it's not like there's this despair in the building one way or another this overwhelming sense of elation things kind of move forward in an nfl organization because you have to is always the next game. There's always the next draft or free agency period or whatever it might be and so you've gotta you've got always of keep going forward to the point brought up earlier about you haven't heard anything in and i certainly haven't about any changes georgia's made to the to the front office. Staff in terms of eliminating positions are people specifically. All he's done is at right. You add roman phifer. You add kelly klein the organization. I guess on a higher level or just on a parallel level but adds a new head of diversity and inclusion a few a few weeks ago and so you're just adding things but everybody kind of again to your point is because they all kept their jobs they might have slightly different ways to go about it but george even talked about how they kept their draft language and systems and he just kind of adapted rather making everyone else adapt to him. And i'm sure it'll kind of evolve more to his liking overtime. Herb things he wants to change his specification. Better word all right so without stealing your thunder in regards to the melvin gordon store. Then no you have coming out here soon. On denver broncos dot com what are some highlights you can share that will make people race to the website. The second it gets tweeted out by by the team and by you About your sit. Down with the broncos running back it yet. I mean to. There's two main subjects in my mind. One you've got devante. Williams was drafted in the second round. So what's melvin reaction to that Secondly what is in these are kind of late would is his future in denver. Obviously he's entering the the the final year of his deal. I think he had good answers. To both of those the first one in regards to giovanni he kind does view it as them coming into. You know maybe try to replace him But that's not going to change his attitude toward devante devante talked about how he looked up to melvin when he when melvin was at wisconsin in evanston me. Who am i to not help this. Kid who wants to come in and learn be is best and you know. I'm still going compete against him but i don't think it sounds to me be gay like this is going to be an adversarial relationship or you know we see competition sometimes With bring in young guys kinda get ugly. I don't think that that's going to be the case here. And then this was maybe a little surprising to me. Just because when i asked him about his future i kinda thought he would you know maybe deflect the question or just say. Hey whatever happens happens. He said he loves denver. He said he doesn't want to go anywhere he wants to be here. Long term He said it's important to him to not be viewed as a journeyman. Running back is how he put it in. It's his hope to to stay here beyond twenty twenty one and obviously the season is gonna have a lot to do with it. You know based on how he plays based on how devante williams plays Based on probably george payton's thoughts in general belt paying running backs at a certain age. I believe this is melvyn seventh season in the league So that'll be interesting to see how it plays out but it was kind of surprising to me that he just came out and said hey i to be here long term. Because you've seen even a guy like shelby harris became we've seen him say. Hey i hope to be here. But it's a business and whatever happens happens. Melvin kinda just stayed entirely on. I want to be in denver. Yeah and it's good to hear. I think broncos fans should be excited. It's way too early to predict what we do. Now if i were going to hold a fantasy draft melbourne's guernsey top ten running back for me. This year as it stands today maybe after a month of training camp in and get a better sense it might feel like it's similar to what we saw with phillip lindsay or what we thought the split would be but it feels like this year specifically if he's not getting seventy percent of the work. I'll be surprised. Not because that's a slide on davante williams. Everyone will tell you certainly football people that rookie running back is typically the easiest position to step into and have an impact but beyond this year. I i wouldn't expect. Melvin was going to be back or at least not at eight million bucks a year. But maybe he's so good and he's a of obvious pro bowl all pro kind of back this year where they have to keep them around for a couple more years and we don't know what george payton loved pre-draft like well in minnesota. They did this this. And this like okay. But because it wasn't georgia's final call you don't know exactly where he stands now. Adrian peterson is a hall of fame. Running back and melvin. Gordon has a lot of work to do to get in that conversation. But they certainly played paid. Adrian peterson once or twice to stand in minnesota. So there's at least some sort of track record of keeping a running back around into his thirties in late twenties and then into thirty so i don't know if that has any barometer all on this but it's good to hear that melvin wants to stay here you're right it is kinda hard at any point to be like what was georgia's decision in. What wasn't you know. did he agree with rick. Spielman on this decision to draft ex player. Was he staunchly against it. And you have no idea really. We're kind of seeing how those things play out. But i mean i mean melanin did end up getting a significant amount of carries. I think he ended up with two forty and in phillip lindsay was only the one ten one. Twenty range was injuries. Yeah of course yeah But you're you're right. I think melvin should be poised for big year in all the improvements around. It should only help him. You know if drew lock or or teddy. Bridgewater can improve the level of quarterback play. That helps melvin because then teams can't stack guys in the box and if corwin sudden comes back and makes a big impact opposite jerry. Jeudy that that helps melvin gordon. And we've already seen that he's been really dominant inside the ten yard line inside the red zone obviously at nine touchdowns last year. I think that that would only improve. Hopefully if this offense as a whole could get better than finding one. I have for you. I imagine yes. Melvin about the quarterbacks. Maybe not as pointedly as podcast that he did. But what do you tell you about the about the quarterback battle or the impending quarterback battle that vic fangio told us just the other day that it's going to be fifty fifty. Yeah i mean. This is the first time he's dealt with that because he's been in. La where philip rivers was there and there was no question that he was the guy so part of our conversation was just about. What is that gonna be. Like for him He he you know he deflected a little bit saying there's competition all over the place at center In the back into corner. But i do think he's excited to see what drew lock in. Do taking a step forward and then you kind of know what you're going to get from teddy and so. I think these guys became excited as we are to see that plow to figure out who Who's gonna be the guy just my personal opinion. I think that maybe it's the universal opinion. I do think the higher upside overall and it's just a matter of can he toned down some of the mistakes and to me teddy kind of represents that safer choice. But i kind of think it's going to be drew. Yeah i'm right there with you. That be i. Don't say his job to lose but they're gonna hope against hope that he win wins the job because he's eliminated mistakes because the upside you mentioned is i think just significantly greater will. We do know what teddy is last year. The fifteen touchdowns was the most he's ever thrown was also most pitches ever thrown to. So there's that eric love reading your stuff. I know so. Many folks broncos country do as well. Maybe don't get as much airtime as you should but I'll certainly remedy that. Who knows maybe down the road. Get john the new podcast. That i'm doing shocked. The shelby harris podcasts. With first one coming out tomorrow so You know that's only going to get bigger and and then you can tell shelby which of his teammates he like and don't like Do interesting because this is a lot of fun.

B.I.G. Interview | Cody Roark of Pro Football Network Shares His NFL Draft Predictions

"Hey this is coaching mccaffrey. Your unc football coach. And you're listening to the hall. Show on thirteen ks back to the whole show powered by pd energy. We are live from the auto collision specialist studios joining me now on our i advantage. Hotline cody rourke broncos analysts locked on nfl podcast and senior nfl analyst. Pro football network. Cody my friend. We're down to our countdown. Finally it's almost here. We're finally going to figure out. What the broncos specifically do with that number nine pick. Yeah i mean. Obviously it's a. It's a wild day and really were denver goes going to be determined based on the direction of everybody ahead of them and Just an interesting last twenty four hours. I think for denver and it's put some questions in the air but there's also could be very good smokescreen for the team. You re tweeted. Ian rapoport about twenty minutes ago or so that maybe the the niners have been looking around at the veteran quarterback seen now the niners cody. You and i've already talked about this. And everybody has the niners. What they do impacts the broncos they were looking out they looked out to even see. The packers would be interested in trading aaron rodgers. Yeah it's a wild turn of events. I don't know where but apparently there were exhausting. Every option. I think the writing is on the wall. Jimmy garoppolo time in san francisco is probably done. Unless he's willing to be a backup. And i i don't see that especially his price point of his current contract so they're looking to move on but yeah it's really just a mystery right now who they're going to go with at three. Yeah it really is because you know you could certainly see kyle go in there. You could certainly see a quarterback going there. All eyes are glued to that pick and then once the niners make that pick. It's the falcons. Like i wanna know are we. Are they ready to start. Turning that page with matt ryan or if kyle pits is there they go with pits and try to try to get him a star tight in all of those managed just goes down the line from one interesting story to the next. We're not only that now. There's reports of new england. Patriots are trying to talk carolina about moving up to a and if that's the case i think justin fields and trae lands goes to them at eight depending on. Who picked it. Three on the next available option would be probably you know if matt jones Does you know if he goes there. Then you know they have a chance to choose between you know trae lance and justin fields. If mack jones doesn't go with three then obscene. I expected to be trae lance and then you have obviously just intrigued available at pick number eight and fields with likely be the guy so really depends on the broncos really that interested just build your trae lance that they would let the patriots move up one spot ahead of them that to me the shocking part and makes it seem a little unlikely. Now that the broncos would even look to trade up for a quarterback because of the fact that they executed a trade with the panthers. Yesterday radiate is a chaos. My rocco's it really is i. I liked the teddy bridgewater. Moved cody because you didn't have to do much for it right. A six round pick. You got the panthers pretty much pay and everything. So we'll see how that what does that move. Really do for the broncos basically does that just kind of say. They're not going to get aggressive. If if there's a quarterback that they like it nine neat they'll go for it but does that mean that. They're they're probably going to be comfortable. Just staying at nine and doing kinda the george payton so far anyway and just let it come to him. Yeah you know. I think you have to you know and i think the the the nature of the business is just trying to see how the board is gonna fall and really it. It's chess not checkers. You know these other moves. They're going to happen. You have to look at the evaluation you're saints or a team that's interested in up into the top end but to be honest with you brady. Bill see the broncos wanting to drop all the way back to twenty eight that that would just be. I think it'd be brutal unless they're sending over a first round pick but the saints have a golden of that at first round. Pick more than likely you know is going to be probably amid round or next year if that were the case. I don't think deborah is going to do that. If they were traced back. I imagine they trade back in the mid teens or something along those lines maybe even a few spots but i yeah i mean this is just a wild draft and there's so many there's so much ambiguity and you know tony pauline pro football network Nfl draft analyst was talking about it. This is a year where not much information about what teams are going to be doing has actually gotten out usually see a lot of leaks around this time of the year and draft season. But for this year there's so many Tight lips on it. I mean they could go either way which. I'm prepared to be completely forked tonight. You know based on how the board falls and copd in me to the top. Ten is is so interesting and even outside of that as you mentioned what the patriots just seems like. This pats team belichick uncharacteristic very aggressive in the free agency period. Perhaps getting free aggressive in the draft is that because they want to try to match. What tom brady's doing and tampa bay on the immigration is our sincerest form of flattery factor. That in but you know tampa bay. They've got everybody coming back so they're gonna give me a tough team to beat in the nfc. So i think for the same. They have so many question marks particularly at the quarterback position. I mean i still think that they're gonna add defense because marshon lattimore probably gonna face suspension from l. So i imagine quarterback is the position really really want and they wanna trade up into the top ten to do it and make sense if they want to do that but i don't even know if he even wanna get to. The top tend to be able to make that happen. It's going to be very just so intriguing. And cody rourke joining us from pro football network. Cody can we ask you to play some prediction games for us. Here are a few questions and we just you kinda. Just give us your prediction. We don't care if it's wrong or right ultimately. We just want your insight. Will there be a quarterback at number nine of these top five guys. Will there be one of those guys available at number nine. Yes there will. And with that being said to the broncos go that direction it will be drafting a quarterback at number nine if it is the right guy if there is a mac and not a maximum. T's really so you should smack There is a trae lance or adjusted. Field there at nine yes. We'll justin fields be there at nine. I think he will. Who and so then. The follow up is drew. Lock on this broncos roster next season if what you just said comes to fruition and justin fields as taken by the broncos. I think so. I think he gets one year but it may not be as a starter right because of his contract around not paying them a lot of money. But i i do believe that he would probably be on the roster and you maybe you get him to pre season you increase his value and teddy bridgewater mentor. You know one of these Young quarterbacks but you likely starter and twenty twenty one unless it is justin fields. I mean if it's just in field field starts week one If it's a guy. Like trae lance i that the broncos won into behind teddy bridgewater and developed for a year and then twenty twenty to become the guy. So that means that you still have drew lock and teddy bridgewater competing a training camp for a starting job. And then you can have that mentorship regardless after a twenty twenty one you know. The broncos can make a more informed decision man. It's going to be quarterback controversy right. We're going to fill this depth chart up. It's going to be so much fun. Last narrowly prediction one. But answer this question. Phyllis a blank. In the broncos fail in the first round if they do what if they. Oh gee that's really tough to say. I mean if they draft honor a kid. That's a big fail. I said it on. Today's episode locked on broncos were shot at the broncos. Stay and they take Sean slater at nine. I don't believe that is. I think that's not a sexy credit and it's not be very appealing to many fans. I mean i put a question. I was on twitter. They did blown up. I mean there's a lot of unhappy campers if that were the case but it makes sense when you consider the the long-term outlook john james his contract value is gonna make james the starter on twenty twenty one and you need to have an answer for it. After the season now john james played really good football. The broncos are banking on. this is upcoming season. They asking to restructure his deal next year. And maybe it makes it to a more fluid situation. But i don't know. I mean kill to be a fly on the wall and george. Payton's office to you know i. I've i've really been impressed with with george payton here. You know a couple of moves that he coulda went after early and spent a little bit more to get some of these free agent moves or trades any weights. He sits back and waits for for perhaps the value to go down. I really like it so far. I'll be really curious to see if that the the free agency process that we've seen so far carries over the draft process. Yeah i agree with you and i. It's like it's going to be chaotic tonight. And i have until broncos french putting strap your seatbelts in buckle up it is gonna be crazy chaotic. It's going to be emotional. And i i just can't wait to see you know what the organization decides. Do you know 'cause you're gonna give me a better idea as to you. Know how. I can put the broncos in a position maybe to compete in the afc west. And it's gonna give us all a little bit more clarity on the direction that they may be heading in. Is there any chance kyle. Pets falls much past five or six. I mean if this was in section and you could go into. Nfl general managers dreams and convinced him to take somebody else in. Yeah i think. That's going to be the case i mean. He is a very prolific. Alan and yeah i mean. He reminds me a lot of the motto. Darren waller down. Walter is what kyle is going to be in. College has a chance to be even better than that. So i think the appeal of him being a legitimate weapon is going to be very fun to watch. Unfortunately denver's not going to be in a position to get him. Yeah boy it's It's gonna be interesting. There's a lot of guys i love. That could potentially be at nine. You talked about justin fields. Perhaps i really love mike parsons patrick's retain caleb farley. I like all of those guys for me personally. I'm one of those guys. I want to see this defense. Become the greatest defensive all time but just in fields. Cody i that guy to me. I know trevor lawrence zack. Wilson are the guys. But i just get a sense. The justin fields could be one of those guys. Maybe that we all knew was good but can perhaps turns out to be great. Once it gets in the nfl yeah. I think that he'll just very very ready for. I think he's probably when you look at it in. This may sound like a heartache. I don't think it is but when it's just in fields where the selection for the broncos justin field his entering situation. That is better for him as quarterback than i think the trevor lawrence going to jacksonville. I don't think they have the right formula around. Trevor lawrence just yet you have the appeal of a lot of draft picks but i think overall situation and current roster denver and justin feels you being a much better position and a lot of people. Were calling justin fields or more athletic version of back prescott. So hey look. That's as you know. You have your franchise quarterback of the future on paper. But we'll see what happens. How much is it to cody. You just brought it up. I love that point too. Because sometimes you can see great quarterbacks that go to organizations that are just not ready for them. What have you who knows man. Maybe i hate to even say allow. But maybe patrick mahomes go somewhere. And he doesn't start out with a bang. We've seen with kansas city that the perfect fit is extremely important. For these young quarterbacks environment culture the personnel coaches around these players. Important in look. Patrick mahomes into a great system and kansas city. You with andy reid. He was able to learn for a year from a really great mentorship and a leader in alex smith and then when you surround them with the talent he has i mean we saw patrick mahomes really booming a big way And it's crazy because he became generational talent and you have to wonder. Party in apartment does wonder. Could justin feels be generational talent. I mean there's a really high possibility that he could be watched to see where he goes. Boy this is gonna be a lot of fun. Cody appreciate you giving us time. You are a busy busy guy. We love the work that you're putting out there. The podcast worker put now and so much What you have that. We check out a little pre draft coverage today so we talked about on today's episode locked broncos. It's on apple podcasts. Google podcasts spotify. In the odyssey abby sure to check it out but we talked about how the broncos scraped teddy bridgewater jala impacts their draft strategy. Tonight what it means for july organization going forward and our final predictions on the nfl draft. I love it man. Nobody better my friend. Cody will We'll look forward to catching up with you. Perhaps a little draft recap next week. Absolutely my friend. Thank you so much for thinking of me. I appreciate you and the awesome work that you do and always happy to join you right. We'll talk to you very very soon. That's cody rock. Pro football network. Kind words One of the best out. There guy analyzes the games he breaks. The games breaks the teams down. He breaks the drafts down free agency. I think we have the best broncos insiders in the game to be real honest. I know there's a lotta guys that have been doing it for a lot longer. But we love with. Cody rourke stolen. Our guys act. Stevens is amazing with. Dvr broncos to me kovacs. They're like the young an up and coming. Big time broncos insiders for the next jeff legwold those kind of guys all right so unpacking cody's predictions. There will be a quarterback there. He's iffy as to whether it's going to be justin field or trey lance. If it's fields broncos. Take him if it's lance to the broncos take him or do they go. We wanna defensive guy. I heard vic fangio say when you have a ninth pick or a pick within that realm that gives you an opportunity to take a guy that's gonna make an immediate impact and you know vic fangio who's got he's a. He's got his one year left colfax if he does not produce meaning. If they don't what does it seventeen games. They got win. At least what nine you got to win at least nine games. You know vic fangio's looking at this list and just fields are. I could put him in. Mike parsons done. Patrick's 'certain he's our third corner. Caleb farley. He's our third corner Trae lance is starting for me if you're vic fangio you are begging denver not to take drill trae lance this year and it's probably selfish but your job is on the line so you need number nine to stick immediately to play as soon as game one and to play effective minutes so it's going to be very very very important for vic fangio tonight. I mean so many things around this draft pick. It's nuts man. i mean. Obviously you hope you're not in this position in a very long time Ready he said chris. What's the old saying. If you have to cubeys you got none might as well draft another. Then you got three having withdraw issues. We'll hang the broncos flag today. My psychologist dr. Bush has been very helpful. So are you are. The bed over is east side. Chris done with this whole dixon. Chiefs garbage thing. Are you done. are you ready. You ready to come back to the good side. Because we're going to need all the help we can get next year. Let me think colfax. I've got my predictions coming up later. I've been telling you what. I what i think is going to happen what i want to happen. I'm gonna give you my actual prediction. Will there be a quarterback available at number nine of those top five trevor's gones acts gone. We no one's there might be two guys. It's it's well two of three. They're gonna transfer justin fields. One of those guys be there at nine. I don't know i. I really have no idea. I'm going to say not at the patriots. Move up like projecting. I pads are gonna move up to. I think they're going to update. I think the falcons are taking a quarterback at four. I think the niners were taken quarterback at three. And i think the patriots are going to pull the rug out from underneath the broncos and move up to eight but i could be wrong. Do you think the broncos a move up to try if they get if they get a whiff of that. I don't know man. I mean elway was never good at moving up was he. I mean he never really moved up. Moved back george. Peyton i mean. He's been a part of drafts but we don't know what kind of guy he's gonna be. He likes he likes building the draft. So if you have to give up fifty give up and then a second round pick and the maybe next year first round pick. I don't know that he's going to do that if he likes to. Build through the draft. The other thing is conspiracy conspiracy. But george peyton know that the panthers were gonna ultimately trade eight to the patriots. It's why gave him a call. Or did the panthers call him and say we thought about it. We know you want to teddy bridgewater. We'll have some good fortune coming. Our way will pay the rest of that. Give us a six round pick. we'll start accruing mix and maybe that's why the whole teddy bridgewater was Was was accelerated. This whole move was accelerated to get bridgewater yesterday yesterday. Draft eve when all of the news and rumors really gets going. I just i you know it'd be really funny is if the jets. Don't take zack. Wilson like that has been the one hundred percent. You'd bet the mortgage on this that trevor lawrence goes the jags and zack. Wilson's goes to the jets. We don't really have those groundbreaking upsets anymore. Groundbreaking upsets don't happen at nine. Eight seven six. They happen at one two three four. Maybe even just one to one one into. That's not going to happen. But a lot to discuss man just tweeted this moments ago. You got the avs are probably gonna wanna cup. The nuggets maybe going to win a title. Maybe i'm going to say. Maybe you got the broncos draft day. They got number nine tonight and they already have a new quarterback in town the rockies perhaps ready to turn that page fully on the jeff bright it's era will see. I would say sports in colorado world pretty damn interesting when you talk about national sports thirty eight minutes after the hour. Power play sports. Poll question who you take. And who are the broncos taken which position will the broncos draft in the first round tonight quarterback cornerback linebacker other linemen quarterbacks leading by a significant margin forty-one percent corner at twenty five linebacker. Sixteen others beating out lineman. Nobody wants to see no lineman drafted even though it can make or break your quarterback. Nobody wants to see omen drafted in the top ten. It's just not the way. Although i think i have to. Oh linemen going. I've got a bizarre mock bizarre. Mock draft there in the first nine thirty nine minutes after the hour. Let's get the latest on the local sports flash.

He played in eleven games last year. And this is not really a case for to like if. I'm picking quarterbacks that i want for the broncos. I'm really not going to go the to route what i what i take overdue lock. Call me yeah. I would take over. Drew lock But when you talk about show watson you're right pillow fight. Dan texting in of all those options. Miami miami's if if he gets to pick that it's gonna be miami then it's going to be up to two houston to figure out what exactly they want for now. Here's the the options. Do you want more draft picks and then you draft a quarterback that you don't know much about you know enough about them as we all. Do you see him in college and he gets you combine reports deep scouting. But you don't really know until you know. That's what we've learned about quarterbacks. You just don't know until you know. Lamar jackson is a household name in the nfl. Josh rosen is the forgotten man. He was drafted nearly twenty picks before lamar jackson. So you've got a lot of work to do if you're houston. I mean you say good but you were going to build around sean but still awake. You know you were a bad team. This year so quarterbacks not your only issue. It's the biggest issue for all of us right every team. It's the biggest issue. But you got a guy that doesn't want to be there and you know maybe you're going to get and they're gonna listen to sean and houston are going to have to do some if this really happens. They're going to have to do their own negotiate negotiating because he doesn't have to trade him. But the sean wants to be you know if he wants to be in east pick. Where do you meet in the middle and say. Hey we don't like the offer from there so you're gonna have to pick between these two otherwise we're not gonna do it the other thing to think about to cool facts. Shawn's made his money. I mean he's got he's got he's twenty five years old. A monster contract signed that four year deal By the time it's done it'd be it'd be twenty eight or so Do you look at that and say windows. Yeah when does that contract and it ends in trial so it ends a twenty four. He'll be an unrestricted free agent. He'll be an end to twenty-five. Excuse me it'll be an unrestricted free agent and twenty six. So this takes you takes care of you for a while right. Do you start thinking of titles. 'cause you don't get to be as good as a shawn watson if you don't think about winning big you know there's quarterbacks but then there's upper tier quarterbacks that winners are just built differently there are. Nfl talents that love being in the nfl. And they're very good can be great but there is a difference. And so if you're sean you also look at it. I know texas. I agree detroit's not exactly like you know. Come live in detroit it's beautiful. He's not really that but does he look at that and say well. Maybe detroit has a better chance now again. I'm just. I'm asking because you also take account who's going to be the better team in the next two to three years if if that's up because you've already got the money. The money's there. So i do think that's where the broncos could step in because i know i know the broncos were bad but can we agree. That offensive. Line wasn't wasn't awful fact. Maybe one of the stronger units wide receivers are only going to get better. And you're getting courtland sutton back. Assuming that's not part of the trade deal and the the biggest problem with denver was the two biggest the two biggest issues that you look at forever team head coach and quarterback. Sorry but that's it. Does that mean you get a better coach. You get a better quarterback plath team don't see why not. I think their defense was that bad. Their offensive line was pretty good. But i don't know. I thought it was interesting. The press conference today. I was listening this morning. Doing some prep kovacs. Talking listening to join elway george pain well kusila of the denver post woody page. I excuse me he page asks elway at the end of it. So confused and i'm summarizing. I'm confused a bit if you're making If george peyton away three first rounders and player to be named later for a certain franchise quarterback. Do you have to sign off on that. And elway said i would obviously throw my two cents in and give him my advice but ultimately says decision. How do you think that goes down if george because okay they asked about drew lock to and always said he's still high on drew lock. Those were his words. I'm still pretty high on drew. Lock but as as good as a good. Vp front office guy would always say we're always evaluating that position. See leave it open. How does that look george. Peyton comes to you. And says i want to trade three first round picks and bradley chubb and i got to throw in drew lock. Who your high on for shawn watson and you say john always says. I don't think that'd be a good move. I think your mortgage mortgaging your future. And i still think drew lock can turn it around and be really good quarterback plus brel. We invested a lot in. And we do think he's going to be kind of guy we build around our defense so going to say i'm going to say no. So then. what happened george. Payton goes kinda like that. move though. i'm gonna. I think i'm going to do it. How do you expect john. Elway george peyton to just go all right cool shake hands walk away and everything's gravy. There's no built in already kind of some rivalry there. You're saying you're thinking called picture thinking. Well that's the guy hired to do the job. Well if you hired to do the job than why would you even give him your two cents at all. You wouldn't and i think that was. You probably wouldn't even even though. He said he clearly made it. I think that you have to make that decision today. Like you have to say if. I give you my two cents. That means that's my decision. If i don't then see. I think that that's the way you want to do this now. I told you i disagree. With the fact that this is the year away decided to call it quits. I don't like it stand by it but it's done now and so i think that if you're going to say george payton you're the guy in charge ultimately now guidance and two cents to me is a little different. Here's guy and let me explain. Guidance to me is like okay. Three first round brown show. I pretty steep price. I'm gonna say very very steep and who knows maybe turns it around. And that's going to be a bad look. Someday if drew lock goes to houston and he becomes the guy and we're still not going to the playoffs so think long and hard about it that's guidance to senses. No that's a terrible deal. I think is going to going to turn it around. And i think we're better off staying the course. That's that's my. That's my concern is just gotta take took me back a bit to senses. Only worth two pennies. It's true. isn't that the whole point. Very true. And i think in a fairly just said he's his opinion basically doesn't matter says decision but put yourself in a position. Okay this doesn't care this guy okay. He's getting his paycheck. he's happy. I have no stress anymore in my life getting that paycheck to just be a somewhat figured for the organization. Yeah they can run a by me. And i'm not gonna. I'll say what i think. But they can do whatever can ego. You'll always still has that ego. If he had nego he'd still be trying to hang it out here man. Cnn may argue with you. Say it was his ego. That made this decision. So he doesn't have to be the fall guy now he has a guy that can take the blame and he doesn't have to answer the question. Because always i'll tell you you you laugh. Tell colfax elway's never going to have to do what these press conferences again. George payton's doing them always never going to have to stand up and say. Hey no we're evaluating the end of the year his to do that he is. Joe ellis now because you barely see. Joe you see joel is way less than you. John elway so now it's not elway. It's george payton's decis- decision to mortgage future on deshaun watson and now drew lock the greatest of all time. I'm not going down going down for that. See i disagree he. He's he goes. What got him here. Love elway or hate elway why he traded tibo got rid of tibo for peyton of his ego. I mean it was the move to make well. He just didn't he was scared that he'd be outshined. Tibo so i'll go with you there. Tibo the you're gonna make my face. Turn off i listen. I think that if you're you're out you're in you're either joa. So joe is vetoed a few things pillow fight. Dan says colefax is so much more than that brady is on then. Brady is on this one. Elway sharing his opinion. They'll what would you say. Hang on bear with me. Do not absolutely the. Why are we doing here pretending. Why are we paying this man. Because he's got a pretty face man. Footballs for us at one point. I love john. I have a frame of a jersey side. And every time i go by we go. It's great. we all love elway but come on if he's backing out and he's just going to be the guy that's working from pool and they call and say. Hey here's what we want to do. I don't know bro. You do whatever you wanna do man. It's your future party. i'm just living in it to world. I'm just living in it. I think he's giving his two cents. It'd be like yeah maybe try and get it for a little less. But if they don't take it and yeah go for it maybe maybe hold one of those picks back if you can and then see what we can do. That's two cents to me. And then that would be a little bit of wisdom that he may or may not have okay but if if if the scenario turns this way and it's always going i think it's a terrible move peyton says i'm going to go with it. You don't think that there's something in split-second we're always like going does even have that power. Nobody knows nobody does. Nobody knows what his job is. Who cares if he goes hurt. He'll he'll deal with it. He said he's and he said that. Again in the press conference to like ever since i got this promotion and whatever like what are we talking about. Here what promotion. What so what do you do. What's your decision making process than if this is this is arguably if you play trade. Three first round picks a bradley chubb and drew lock. That's way bigger price than any of the other teams that good morning. Football talked about this morning. That is the biggest move. That's bigger than your stadium name. It's not bigger than the ownership but it's still a big name pillow fight and who cares if they're paying away or not. It doesn't count against the cap if they have the money. Then let capitalism capitalized capitalizing. If you're paying a guy to not do anything you're not capitalizing. I'm not caring about salary cap or anything. I'm just asking the question. you're telling everybody you got elevated. don't tell me it's snowing when it's ninety degrees outside you know. I don't understand that. No capitalism all four baby hell. Yeah but i'm not gonna pay you colefax to just sit in your office and not do anything. Well no. i'm not john elway though it's crazy man i just i don't know i go back and forth. Okay dixon since elway brought this guy in any decision payton makes always is also always decision if he gets all the credit for manning's accomplishments hits all the good and bad with peyton to is even gonna be there past this year and if he isn't which i think most of us feel like he's not going to be. Then why does he get to give two cents on the biggest move. That could shape the franchise for the next ten years. Because he's john away he has a little bit of wisdom right he has some experience. You're right he does Especially in requiring big-name quarterbacks once once once is better than years or whatever Boy i the whole thing just seems goofy to me like figure the idea of a figurehead eh. bizarro world me too man. that's what it is. I mean it's not going to say any more gonna politically the figurehead. Like in this situation. Like i never got those other guys that said oh us needs to call it quits. Go off into the office and be far away. I mean come on. I just never bought a no way car dealership from the dealership dan. He says who cares if their pay. Oh we're say his name. Did you buy cars from dealership because they have a great safety rating. What the hell's the elway's name done for denver. The last five years got you vic fangio sixty one year old vic fangio. Ho man is a hot commodity. Their sweatpants at all. I mean seriously. Aj boy a yeah. That was a that was a winner. Melvin gordon has is pleading not guilty to a dui that was one of biggest moves in the off season. I don't even know how that works. You gotta be arguing that the breathalyzer didn't work and the guys speed gun didn't work. Or yes seventy five and a thirty five and he tested. If i had a million dollars to throw at that. I would play next season on that contract. Okay so what is his name done. I love as much as the next guy trust me. But what is that name done in five years nothing. But that's that's why i listen. I think i think we can all kind of get on the same page. That's why you should await. And i know they want to george pain. They probably want to george peyton. Now that we're this is all done. They wanted to get him now and basically it was like. It's now or never. John if we want george peyton. Because he's he's he. Nobody's getting an argument for me. I think based on his resume. It's going to be a good move. I just hope. Because the decision's been made. I can cry about all all year long. But the decision's been made now that it's made. I don't necessarily want a foot in with elway. Go golfing the decision on whatever those other big things are. We're told that those are going to be the big decisions not these decisions but the big ones like. I don't know what that looks like. So i think here's where john always ego ends. It's a press conference like that. When woody page asked him what is it you say you do here. And he says well. I'm going to give my two cents. that's true. The decision is his ego the ego saying well. I'm not just going to be golfing. Even though i will be. But so you think his ego kind of that partial portion of it and you're not going to say he didn't say it was ultimately his decision. But i guess my brain just going to. How does that work if elway disagrees with an peyton in agrees with his move. Obviously how does that work. That's where my brain's going because colefax elway hasn't always had the best history with guy guys once they get to a certain point gary kubiak wanted brock osweiler. John elway wasn't sure. I think that's where we started and i know brady. He had health issues. Gary didn't want to be there anymore. It started with gary calling brock. Osweiler saying your guy man. trust me an elway. Never picking up the phone ultimately brock went by and that's where it started and then gary didn't you finish the year nine and seven and it was crazy. Time lieutenant spangled They're just trying to give elway the out where he goes out on his on his terms but doesn't turn us relationship between the organization an all time. Great that's what i feel. I feel that's the case but again. Yeah i guess. I believe too much what i hear when people say i'm gonna be given my two cents. I just picture elway in a suit and tie there at the office putting in the old nine to five and then given his real decision in. You're having a a real argument about it. Dan if you love elway so much why are you so bent out of shape about him being a top level consultant with the title of president or whatever. So what's joe ellis. Then like joe. Ellis introduced genoa. Then john elway introduce george peyton and the george peyton introduce vic fangio and we flipped it back to john. Elway cooks a lot of cooks there. i bent outta shape. Because it doesn't make sense you either running the show or you're not noah and the other thing is i find myself agreeing with kislon. This away picked other than just this. Being one of the last year's he picked fine time to leave was on prime time to leave me lucille. You gotta deal with justin simmons big contract. You've got to figure that out. You got to decide. What to do with melvin gordon. Von miller is a giant elephant in the room. Andrew lock and now you brought in a guy to clean up that mess okay. At least you're acknowledging that you can't clean up that mess but it's it's an. It's an interesting time. I tell you. I would have liked to see elway go one more year but now it makes sense because george payton might not have been availa probably wouldn't have been available next year twenty five minutes after the hour. You can love. Elway disagree with them. You can love people and disagree with them. I love elway. This move makes zero sense. Follow your unc. Bears all the way to march in northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten k f k code now weekdays at four northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi. Hey this is mark. Johnson voice for the colorado buffaloes and you're listening to the whole show with my buddy pretty ho on thirteen ten k f k interest. I advanced text line nine seven four seven eight thirteen zero one. Our power play sports poll question of the day. And you guys got to check it out. d- or toss state who You going with tonight. This is listed there now. The aggies are eight point favorites in colfax. I i think you're you're leaning on. Maybe maybe pick in the rams to win outright tonight. Yeah thank you know what i'm gonna take it. Let's do it. let's see it. i'm close. I'm close to take in the rams tonight. Think of the night to do. Its tonight because if you do it tonight then utah state comes back because you've taken by surprise you know it's a little less to work off of. They can't comeback kids this year. But i don't think you can get down to a utah state team. They're just they're so good defensively they don't think you can come down ten fifteen and make those crazy comeback but then again. I don't think you can do it. Against san diego state either but a namus ikeda is something else twelve points per game nine point four boards per game three blocks per game. He's a stud. This is a very good defensive team. Their undefeated in conference play. So i'm gonna. I'm gonna be really really interested to see how this one goes down. I finished text line. Nine seven four seven eight thirteen o one four seven eight thirteen o one man. We got into a little bit there. You're good with this whole thing. You're good with it now. You're just like this is fine. Yeah that's fine. I think it's the best thing that could have happened. Wizard of oz. Now elway's the pay no attention man behind the cart. Coda does that mean george peyton. Is george paint taurasi. Who's towards the end this situation. His toto a vic fangio toda. He's the he's the lion he's more courage. Yep i mean the way it handles his timeouts you could make a case you know he needs to be more like he's like scarecrow I did think you'll again. I got i call out kizlar and i call out. You know what he page. They ask the question fan kizlar. Somebody asked him a question. What are you making for dinner. What do you have for dinner. Because we're going off that whole thing last week because we made such a big deal about vic ordering a cheeseburger asked the question. What are you what did you make. What did you make. George payton for dinner and you know like oh. It doesn't get my balls yet. He's gotta earn my trust dot kids last him and said you know that's great that you're taking him to dinner and everything but ultimately you guys can have a good relationship but you know things go south this year you could be in the crosshairs and vic cancer that well but i mean it's a crazy industry isn't vicks apart. How much of a decision of part of that decision i don't. Nobody's part of that does and he went to the dinner a year from now. It could be gone that he choose to. They make him take. The burger probably made them take the burger. We're all gonna get steaks vic. You eat the hamburger vic we're covering to today. I'm going to cover you know joel. Says i gotta. We'll get george allen. Have enough money for three so burgers burgers a little cheaper. So get your own tab. I'm rooting for him. I don't believe in it. I don't think it's gonna work. I do think. George payton might be able to recharge this franchise. The question is is it going to be now or next year and again it's a game changer of to shawn watson comes here. Is it a game. Changer of matt stafford as the quarterback for the broncos stafford's good does it get. You excited them. No no doesn't get me excited. If he was like younger than maybe like the shawn watson. look at his numbers. That gets me excited. I mean he was in the playoffs last year. So and the the other. How far away is houston. Was this just one of those years or are they really bad there playoff team last year boy. There's a lot coming up man. There's a lot a lot of things really to sift through here. And then you have the the situation really von miller that whole thing. We're waiting to get that out. But you know jeff legwold posted on. Espn that melvin. Gordon pleads not guilty in the dui case does that hurt your opinion of him does that again we we wanna wait. Tell everything comes out. But when know he was arrested on october thirteenth in downtown denver was charged with dui and also cited for speeding Twenty five and thirty five thirty nine miles per hour over the legal limit. How how. I'm not that familiar with all this process. How do you plead and you just have to be basically saying that they were wrong. That The breathalyzer was wrong. Because it just means you're not gonna take their deal and they're gonna you're gonna force them to prove it in court and you're going do you're going to draw this whole thing out. Draw in the hopefully get allows. You have liked to see him. Just take it Because it's changed riders opinions. I'm seeing guys now that we're four him there saying you know maybe it's time to cut bait here. It doesn't take much to change of writers mind. I don't know on the field wise. He looked good first. Half broncos country hated him second half they loved it. Then you have this thrown in the mix he is he better than phillip lindsay. Yes yeah i mean. Does he give you a better shot to win games at this stage. Yeah second half of the season. How long will he be out. His next hearing is scheduled for february twenty fourth potential jury trial in april eighth if the case is not resolved before then we'll see he could still face league discipline in the twenty twenty one season because he didn't actually have any didn't actually have any league disciplined this year. Because you had kareem. Kareem jackson last year remember. He was suspended for the final two games of the nineteen season after a december sixteenth. Quarter appearance that year. On a dui charge he entered a plea of driving while ability impaired and his suspension was announced by the nfl. The very next day. Gordon got the two year deal. And if you're not able to play that out next year fully than it does change how that contract operates. Would you like to see. Melvin gordon back with his team took the dui thing away. Would you wanna see them work with this team. I mean from a sports perspective. I think i'd like no matter. What yeah. I think i think i would. I think i'd like to see gordon back von miller. Would you like me back if you got the deal. If he took the eleven million cut us out in half. Yeah yeah nothing What about with all this investigation stuff going on right now. Yeah i totally forgot about. That's kind of died down to be real but it's you know we're waiting to see how that unfolds. I'd have to wait and see on that one. That's i don't know. I don't know there's part of me that's like do you. Just you have drill k. c. j. boy. A are those guys that you think are going to be. I mean kisla basically made it sal. Okay you guys. That are bronco. You're not gonna get guys. That are just sort of the broncos not for a while that takes time he but he kind of goes off on elway saying. You disrespect disrespected. Chris harris junior and you might be disrespecting justin simmons and you did disrespect phillip lindsay. But you went and got all these other guys. You went and got aj boy. And then you wouldn't got melvin gordon guys. That don't really dedicated the broncos country. Chris harris loved being a bronco intel. It until he realized that he was kinda getting low balled. He took hometown discount first. And then elway wouldn't even kind of hook them up. He gave him that three million. And maybe that was respect but why not sign him to the long-term deal and the not worry about aj boy. And then the. Melvin gordon thing you know we were frustrated but it makes sense. Because i don't know that lindsay's your i love phillip lindsay. I just don't know that he's This year showed me that you know first two years i thought yeah he could carry the load. I don't know that he can. I think he's going to be a combo. He's going to be a number two guy in ice number to punch. But i don't know that he's your bell cow so aj boy von miller. Melvin gordon boy. A if you have him and he can you know here's he's gonna have still finished out that He did they could have a strong cornerback. Crew if they draft corner if they draft a corner with that top ten pick. You know man. They could be suddenly loaded obvious. All the sports socks is important. But i can't get out of my head winning that. Ps five dominating and madden lieutenant spangled all right. Here's what we're gonna do. I'm gonna take the fifth caller because we're we're due for a break here right. Colfax were breezing past today show.

Try one more year. This is the year go out kicking and screaming right because there is no tomorrow. That's that's where i am. There's no tomorrow for this current situation. I i don't know what the future is for vic. I don't know what the future is for. Joe allison and john elway. I mean joel has done after what this year is. Next year New ownership squabbles. All the stuff brittany and beth. What's going to happen there to me. That next year is great. But i still feel like it's this weird. Get twitter year now again. If if george peyton if he struggles next year. No one's gonna put that on him unless he tries for shawn watson and trump wants his bad and drew lock stud like that would be a bad move but nobody's expecting peyton to work a miracle next year if he does it's all gravy so you would imagine that any new owner that comes in is going to look at the guys resume and basically go. No were set here the rest. We'll see but again you do have that you know the new ownership thing you'll be locked into a contract and that's with the way the nfl works. No one's protected one hundred percent but More than likely he's going to be there the rest. I'm just not so sure about meaning vic fangio and drew lock elway dixon. Don't you have a nfl dot com to refresh to see. If patrick mahomes is play. Elway's awesome so as vaughn. Signed simmons as well before he's gone. We'll mahomes be back. It really depends but brady. I used three exclamation marks and our best friends. That's going back to the beginning of the show. My best friend one of my best friends. How many of them coach. Niko medved. back thanks man.

BK Previews NFL Draft & Jags No. 1 Pick with Phil Smith.mp3

"Will be no deaths by inches. This is the broncos daily. Putt jazzed with brandon krisztal. I want everything. I want all the meatballs and pasta. Happy monday broncos country and glad to be back with you here on the broncos daily podcast some time off because little restructuring of some of my responsibilities on a daily basis but also got a big podcast in the works. It should be dropping in the coming weeks at everybody. Broncos country i know is going to be excited about. I can't tell you anymore yet but is on the horizon. The wheels are in motion. And it's going to be really really big. There's a chance that it becomes the most popular. Podcast in broncos country. I'll leave it at that. And there's obviously some great ones. I know i've got loyal listeners. Here broncos country. Tonight's podcast is really good and there's some other ones certainly are. Dvr do a really good job. And bowman cody. Rhodes does a good job with lockdown broncos too but this podcast will be very unique and have a chance to be really really really something cool. So i'm looking forward to that. We are ten days away from twelve days away. I guess from thirteen. I guess penalty do math from the start of the nfl draft. And i wanted to look at each team ahead of the broncos leading up to the draft while as as talks broncos so today trae lances produce at north dakota state and pat shurmur there again last time last week he went with justin fields to he went to see just field. Aj who's Head of pro personnel tagged along. But i think there's a chance of maybe shurmur. Their solo watching trae lines second pro day. And what's funny about. The broncos is rhino holler and talk to george payton in the denver post and he said we could move up. We could go back with the same place. What john said every year and george is going to talk to us later this week in a in a press conference at the ucla training center and it should be easy training. I guess we'll see it could be on zoom but just like john. Elway always did sometime the week before the draft will also see losses. See george peyton. Press conference but john got really good at saying. Yeah we stick. It are spot last year. Obviously they were picking fifteen. We stay at fifteen we can move up. We can move. We move back. We're keeping all our options open. George payton said that to ryan o'halloran basically i'm paraphrasing and then albert breer separately for peace said. The broncos are a team that could be lurking that in the quarterback market that some people think they may move up as high as four. Drank a quarterback. Peter king says they're more likely than teddy bridgewater market talking to the people i've talked to. I think that's the way they're going to go to. I think everything happens at nine. They the best player available. That could be an offensive. Lineman a rashaan slater that could be any of the corners advocate for that whichever corner is their favorite of all three of their take one or trade back if somebody really wants one of those corners and you like the linebackers. You like mike. Parsons are you like. Let me see if i can get his name right jeremiah. Awo sue core amoah jock. I think is what they call them. i'm close on that and i'll i'll have it. They draft him. I'll have it. Just like we've got alfred bonham so i think that if you had to tell me between now and next thursday to lay money on draftking sportsbook my preferred betting partner and sportsbook app than i. I would say that they trade back stick at nine or trade back. They're not they're not gonna move up. I want to go day by day. Leading up to it will no weekdays on. I know that i've maybe failed a few of you but it wasn't intentional. It was as i was working through a couple of things. And and trying to figure out exactly what this podcast would be and how it would supplement and complement the other podcasts at. That's going to be coming down the pike here soon. But we'll do jags today. Jets tomorrow and so on and so forth through the draft order leading up to next thursday's we get you ready for the first round of the draft and to see what the broncos are going to do with that number nine pick so i had a chance to talk to from the believe jaguars podcasts. My man phil. Smith was nice enough to kind of take us through how excited people are in jacksonville about trevor lawrence. Coming in and everything that comes with that in an urban meyer being there. So phil smith at fill the filipino on twitter at believe in jags pod podcast company. That does a lot a great podcast. Cross a lotta. They've got a podcast about every team in in the nfl a bunch of nba podcast baseball than they've got league-wide podcasts. Much of college podcasts I'm in braun that owns it. is brother-in-law's with arthur. Smith of the falcons but been for a long time And so they do. They do good. Works so believe in. jags podcasts. At fill the filipino. Phil smith here. Talking with me mixture. Give him a unity. What's going on all things jags. But we got into everything related to drive lawrence and urban meyer. So without further ado. Here's me and phil smith bill. The filipino talking. Jags on the broncos daily podcast fill. Have they come up with a new name for j. Ville that incorporates. Trevor lawrence is name yet or are we still a couple couple of weeks or months away from that happening. yeah. I hasn't caught on yet. I've been calling it t law and order. But i don't believe that it is has really caught on with that makes you more twitter. That makes me. i think. That's a good poster. Right t shirt yet. Him in him in urban meyer. Maybe you know some sort of retro eighties. Kind of kind of miami vice back. I have my head exactly but so we. We see over the weekend term. Lawrence is raising money for charities and jacksonville says hey hope to see you soon before we get into potential criticisms of them and i think it's all of that is kind of silly. Just what has the buzz been like really since late in the year when the jets one too many games and it was obvious that the jags. We're going to get this first. Pick so we'll focus on lawrence and we'll get we'll get the urban here in a second but how excited have the folks in do all been been really since november december when it seemed obvious that lawrence is going to be wearing a jags uniform. Hopefully for a long time for jackson's it was very. It was incredible to watch. Just a switch from you know. We're we're of course looking into justin. Fields zack wilson trae lance which one of these guys is going to be and then like you said all of a sudden the jets were a couple of wins it all of a sudden we find ourselves in this position to get this you know quote unquote generational talent that people keep talking about and it's definitely very very exciting. Of course you know. You mentioned the charity which was started by one of one of the one of the fans here. I got a shadow dila because he did a lot of work as far as that goes but it is definitely a very very exciting time. And you know whether or not trevor lawrence is going to be a hit of courses up in the air you know you know the statistics. As far as number one overall draft picks you know most of them are not even on their team anymore but to at least be in the position to draft a guy like trevor lawrence is a really really big deal. of course we've been through the wringer since mark brunell back in the ninety s and early two thousands. We've gone through so many different names quarterback in the finally say. Hey this is going to be the guy. At least we hope for the next decade plus and to be in this position is a really really big deal and and the city is definitely buzzing. It's honestly similar to the twenty seventeen season even though of course we haven't even played a down of football but the buzz is very similar to when they had that playoff run. And so you look lawrence obviously to get you excited. But then they've got two first round picks two second round picks right the twenty fifth. Pick from the rams but that thirty three and forty five. If there's a player they love. They have the ability to go from twenty-five probably up into the into the teens pretty easily absorb and make a move there or slide back accumulate more draft capital. All i think you wanna hold onto to something in the first round just to have a second player with that cap flexibility down down the road in terms of that fifth year option. So just one third round then a couple of couple of when you talk about that. Many picks in the top one seventy two n ten overall but that many picks in the top seventy or even top. One forty five you up just a little bit. They can really retool this roster with likely a bunch of good quality players in short in a short time definitely and there are there are pieces in place now of course it. I mean the the team of one game so it's no secret that of course they need a lot of retooling but there are pieces here. of course. miles. Jack is is solid. Land back on the defensive. So yeah josh allen and now of course he did regressed a little. Bit without callejas campbell in yanni concoc-. Wait on your decide what you still have. A lot of upside at 'em he also had some injury problems. Cj henderson flashed when he was healthy as well and then on the offensive side you know dj charge as a top five deep threatened football. And then you have. The young receivers like levinsky chanel and of course james robinson who took the league by storm taking over for leonard fournette. So if you if you and then coupled with the free agent acquisitions they brought in like you said. There's an opportunity here to retool this thing of very very quickly and you know number twenty five. There's a course a couple of different positions they can target in our latest mock draft over on the jaguars wire we had them taking. Edge rusher. josephus. I out of the university of texas. We've also had a tree. mary exhauted. They're in certain. Drafts are in certain mocks as well. Not sure if he's gonna still be there at twenty five at this point but you know there's definitely so much to this is a great draft to have so much capital and think. of course. that's a really really big reason. That urban meyer here. He's not here. Of course we don't have the number one overall pick in all of this extra capital wall and so before. I do wanna get back to trevor. Let's go to. Let's go to urban next. You talk about that and and for urban make this jump to the nfl after retiring from college now multiple times because of the stress. We know what the stress of running nfl team is. I assume he has final say on the roster unit tram baulky zehr's the gm right it's urban show and so you look at these assets. These pieces The couple that you added adding of edge rusher opposite of of alan makes perfect sense whether that comes with that. Second first rounder early in the second. And there's a lot of alignment in this draft. I think there's eleven tackles rated in the top hundred. I saw maybe on. Espn radio big board. So put somebody opposite of cam. Robinson who liked garrett bowles is kind of finally lived up to the expectation here in in recent years of that hydraulic but for urban specifically. What is the expectation. Because the jags like you said. I just really haven't been good irrelevant since early. Two thousands of mark brunell and company were there. What is the expectation for urban. And and the buzz as it relates to having him back in in florida and now running this team with trevor coming in and everything else that we've kind of touched on so the closer that it got to this being a likelihood i did wanna pull out put out some feelers to just see kind of how ohio state and florida fans felt and a lot of them. Votes burnt by urban. Because of everything that happened in definitely a concern. And the way i look at it is this is something. We've talked about a couple times with some local media guys as well is same. Urban meyer comes in here and five years into it you know. He's maybe he's burnt out on. Maybe the team isn't being as successful. He wants and but we come away with things such as upgraded facilities upgraded stadium. The roster is in a good place. Trevor lawrence is progressing. If five years down the road he is saying. You know what i'm ready. I think maybe. I'm ready to step away but all of those things are at least moving in the right direction and i think you at least take that partially as a win. Now i was a recently. We were on a We were on a conference call with her curbs Over on espn. And he mentioned that he thinks this is a really great spot for trevor. Because the The magnifying glasses going to be just as bright as the light is going to be. Just as bright on urban meyer. So they kind of get to share the spotlight just a little bit of the as opposed to have doug marrone. Were here than you know we're looking at. Why did why did trevor make decision decision. Why is he not progressing. This way as opposed to why urban meyer not coaching trevor lawrence. Well enough why is the roster not playing better something along those lines so i think there's definitely a lot of pressure on him. Of course everything that he is set up to. This point is what you wanna hear of course from a guy that has those types of concerns on by of course at the end of the day. You wanna make sure that you have a Know end up with jimmy johnson in the nfl and not a not a Every other coach. Pete carroll and a little bit barry switzer mostly. Yeah making that that. Jump college to the pros. Hasn't been hasn't hasn't really worked at but when when you talk about the fan base is feeling spurned. I get that. I guess the question is how does urban convinced. Jags fans that he has to really has to convince shot in. Tony comedy is going to be around because the that's the one thing about if unless trevor lawrence falls on his face and i certainly don't expect that I buy into not just the height but the prediction or the assessment that he's the biggest can't miss prospects andrew luck who was the biggest since john. Elway that he's he's that good. And i thought that all along even people wanna try to over over critique or whatever but odds are urban meyer will leave the roster in better shape unless he misses on a bunch of picks even beyond lawrence but kind of my question is there any kind of assurance or or he'll be around more than just a couple years. Yeah that's definitely something that was addressed in his first presser people. Of course were asking. What do you say to. The people that are that are worried. And he echoed his commitment. He also echoed his commitment to making the jaguars a more respectable football team. I mean you can kind of a speech to this era. I mean when the when the jags are coming into town not. It's not really a hot ticket. People don't necessarily wanna see them and of course you know in past years. What reason did you really necessarily have did. Did you really want to see. Blake bortles or or nick foles now. Of course gardner. Minshew has been a little bit of a a ticket here in town but you know. Of course he has his limitations as well so it really comes down to urban also asked for control and being able to upgrade the facilities here in jacksonville and i think that really speaks volumes to the point that hey i want to run this kind of similar to how i ran the university of florida and ohio state. You know when you think about these giant college programs of course you think about. There are amazing facilities that you're seeing now that you see on social media that everybody you're showing off. He wants to make make the jacksonville. Jaguars a destination and a respectable franchise. And i think that really is of course. We're going to see over time. But the fact that he kinda hit the ground running in already been speaking to shot con about making those upgrades. I think is a really really good sign and again just seeing him out there on. Trevor lawrence is throw day on the field right behind israel you know staking his claim on his quarterback the the guy that really is the reason that he is here. I think shows that he's a ready to hit the ground running. And and hopefully. Like i said turn this thing around sooner rather than later all right so back to the lawrence for a second and i'll let you run in just a few but is there do we know. Is there any confirmation that he's received the jags playbook already the rules are different for and i don't know if the league has some stuff in place but turns is not a member of the nfl pa yet. He's not really under anyone's jurisdiction so to speak and and i don't know where it relates as far as the teams i guess prospects. I can't really meet face to face where they can have unlimited. So do we know if urban earnings offensive coaches have said some of playbook and have spent some time with trevor just kind of trying to get a baseline to get them a little ahead of the curve when they they get him in here fulltime as part of the offseason program. Yes my knowledge. I mean that's always kind of been a Coaches will provide players with the playbook to see if they're able to you know how they break it down how they understand it. You know. Trevor lawrence in that tweet just the other day that talks about You know thanks again. We hope to be part of your community soon. It seemed like he has an understanding. And i think really you can kind of look no further than the other day when i believe justin field is running routes specifically for a for the forty niners. It's it's definitely feasible. That he has already gotten his hands on a lot of the lot of the offense that they wanna be running down here in jacksonville and again. I don't think it's really too much too much out of the realm of possibility that he's had it and known for quite a while. So we know that right down there in jacksonville where they have. The world's largest outdoor cocktail party college football is in a lot of ways. Still all always king although some of the cool upgrades. They've made at the stadium. The pool b and one of them and the jags making a little bit of a run a couple years ago with blake bortles and company But now with this number one pick in urban and everything come in that they'll have a chance to cut into maybe some of the college football popularity not that you can't be a fan of both because i think you absolutely can but we've seen where we know. Shod tried to buy wembley stadium. He owns fulham in in london which may not be worth as much if the soccer superleague takes off but nonetheless we hear from everybody that shod khan and certainly people. I've talked to the league and and that used to work with the team there in jacksonville to tell me how much he loves london. That's why i tried to buy wembley. And so i think right. They were supposed to play multiple games air in recent years. So i guess i'll ask you two questions one. Will we ever see a time where they're splitting more games where it's four and four. Potentially i don't think i'll ever move all the way to the london full-time and we know that. The league expanded germany and in other places for these international games But can be self sustaining in jacksonville. And not worry about one in it. All except part of the eight euro tation. That's part of the the the new of all. Cba or will they have to to split it. So you know it's kind of the question. And then secondly the broncos play at the jags each of the next two years and they're trying to get the london even before their eight-year home game rotation comes up so what are the odds. We'd see we see that. Happening i guess you have to just be a a a prognosticator. They're predicting with no real. No real info. But do we think the jags are gonna keep playing london. It's a lot of way long way to get there. And or can they play eight or nine games in in jacksonville. Every i think that is definitely a possibility that will always continue to have one game in london of course as you met your shot onto so entrenched with wembley and and everything. That's going on over there. I can't tell you that. Of course when that whenever before the world shutdown last year because we were set to play two home games in in london and mark lamping. Who is the president of the team. We know it's coming out and saying that he was trying to ease the burden of the fan base. You know trying to support eight home games. Which of course angered a lot of people. And i can tell you just i am In two thousand seventeen now run. I was living in dallas at the time and i could still feel the energy and get a sense of the pulse of the city even from a multiple states away and even coming into town a couple of times uh specifically to watch the games in one game specifically i was that was the seahawks game. Which kind of at that time. Of course it didn't end up being this way but it kind of felt like a changing of the guard. You know the the seahawks were this vaunted defense for that were around for this long time that this great run and income the jaguars who really late into numminen played really good defense plate blake bortles even played well. Of course it didn't end up happening but the energy in that stadium is something. I have not really experienced in a very very long time. And i can tell you that. The team didn't have any trouble selling out any games that season or filling the seats when they were good. You know you talked a little bit already about the pools in the in the screens and all. There's a dog park. I don't know if you know about that as a doctor. I didn't know that. I can bring bring their dogs to the game as well and those things are neat okay. It looks nice but after a while. You just wanna win you know. Look at some of these other franchises. They don't have all of these. You know these other things that are trying to distract you from a product on the field has not good so eventually you know. Just put a winning product on the field and we'll come to the game you know there's There was a very big and a long drawn out process of what child con wanted to do with a lot. Jay here in jacksonville which is a a parking lot that they wanted to put You know a bunch of shopping centers in apartments in businesses on this ultimately fell through. Because sean khan was not being very upfront with with the city he needs to make a covenant with the city and i think urban meyer is kind of the beginning of that where he's now realizing i can't just by my way out of this. I have to actually put a winning product on the field on as florida's denver being the team that gets to Make that shrimp in and play the jags in the future. I could definitely see it. Of course they're gonna wanna put the teams over there. That are going to draw the most interest and i can tell you that the the interest in football london is thriving. We actually recently received a dm over on twitter about a listener from scotland. And the he pointed out that he felt like we were kind of alienating our audience on the podcast that was overseas and he just pointed out all the different things of the jaguars were doing for the For the communities they are in in the uk and it's it's it was fantastic. It was awesome. And i told my i had no idea that they were that entrenched in the culture and the communities are over overseas. Which which. I think was really great. So I definitely think it could be a denver and i can tell you. Those names are a lot of fun and As far as bambi. I have not been able to go myself but i can tell you from my friends and and qualities that have gotten to travel over there. It is an absolute blast. The band's over there so much fun they're so inviting. So i definitely would if if denver fans you know of course we have have them on schedule next couple of seasons. They definitely would if they're able to take advantage of that trip. Because i've heard it's a lot of fun. Yeah i know that we're gonna end up govern a game there one way or another but it just seems logical if the jags are hosting one either not each of the next two years at the broncos when maybe get one of those final thing because i was looking at their coaching staff. Here while we're talking. I knew charlie strong was there. I didn't realize. Oh he's not calling the defense. He is the assistant head coach inside linebackers coach and jo ellen is going to call the defense had great down just urban loves charlie strong but was somebody who's called. Nfl defenses calling a defense. I guess yeah you'll call them this year before back in the early. Two thousand t- actually coached tyson lou. Who we of course had had here for for a little bit and then of course he. He decided to return back to pittsburgh so is exciting. We're excited to see a little bit of that reunion. But yeah joe and just wanted somebody that was i think familiar with. Not only the you know. Not only with the play calling but also the The environment here in jacksonville in general and then as i mentioned before you know as as far as as reminder goes you know maybe he is getting into this to not only of course be successful in further his legacy. Well maybe he's got a guy like charlie strong here on the coaching staff. Where he is looking to build up. And make that next go-to guy as far as coaching tree goes so You know as. I am actually As a mitch. i'm from dallas so as texas fan. I was pretty excited to see. Charlie strong on the coaching staff even though his run with with. Ut wasn't wasn't very very good and then very well. But i am excited to see him ear. Because he's definitely a big player guy and i was a little bit just to see him on the staff not fully calling the defense. I grew up in in north dallas. Even i went to kansas my whole family. My whole family went to texas. And so i try to stay plugged into certainly with my cousins. Have season tickets still and and you know friends that have played. There certainly went there. And i knew get-go charlie strong was going to have a tough go of it because brown was so good at all the other stuff that goes along with being the head coach at texas with all the meetings with the boosters in the six media availabilities week and all of that that Just talking to people close to it. Wasn't there was going to be uphill for charlie strong so glad that you know to see that. He's landed in a place. Where i think they that he can really thrive and i'm excited also see what steve sarkissian can do. Because certainly kansas football has a long way to go to even get to work. Texas is struggling right now so but we can talk about that another time. Thanks so much for the breakdown on all things. Jags and you've got about ten twelve days until it becomes a reality. And then the trevor lawrence jersey start flying off the off the stands there so really appreciate it. And i'm sure we'll talk when the broncos and jags get together during the regular season and maybe it'll be in london absolutely brandon. Thanks so much for your time. It was a pleasure. You guys stay safe out there. And hopefully we'll we'll see so filipino. Really well informed. You can follow him on twitter at that account phil smith at filipino. He and his partner. James do a good job with that. Believe in jags podcasts. You can follow that twitter site as well.

February 23 Hour 1 CSU Rams Greatness Ahead | Broncos New GM Hire Already In the Hot Seat?

"Good top tax tuesday afternoon northern colorado the whole show powered by pga energy. I am brady whole joined by the one and only colefax a million on the other side of the bulletproof glass. It's going to be a fun show today. man Would mclean when this thing last week. Is that right. Mcclain's got the one up on everybody. So here's the deal. Are boys and girls over. A fresh coat painter south platte. They're still working out the details to get the big time gift the next prize. That were shooting for That's let me just tell you this. It's a good sign because that means they got something big on the hook so we were were top text. Tuesday it in the dark again. That's okay because usually when fresco painters is like hey. Hey we're getting confirmation. It's amazing. I trust fresco painters man. They haven't disappointed yet. They come up with the best prices for us to give away. And that's what you're competing for today. A shot a shot for greatness kinda like deep thoughts from a wandering mind this week. Colefax ceus you still has a shot at greatness so they gotta beat air force though. I mean that's number one. I'm still not quite sure. How the tiebreaking scenario scenario is gonna work out now. I did reach out to Jesse kurtz of the mountain west network and cabinet. I talked a little bit about the the tiebreaking scenarios yesterday. But i think kevin's still kind of like what i mean. They could schedule a games if they schedule more games. What does that look like. It's all very confusing because in the conference there if it were to end like this today and let's let's just say boise. State wins both games. They're tied as far as losses in the conference. I know i was always taught growing up when you're watching racism divisions you look at the loss numbers not the win numbers the loss numbers. Because you can't get the losses back can increase your wins if you're a few games mind can't get those losses back. Well then you're going to go over to the overall record. And let's assume she wins both. Let's assume boise state does the unthinkable pulls off the upset in san diego state twice. Will they would finish with four losses overall. But was he say as well as issue hopefully if they beat air force. But you're going to go. Well boise state played. More games are power play. Sports poll question of the day is pretty simple. Who's the better team in the mountain. West right now today. The twenty third day february it boise state is at san diego state is a colorado state is at utah state. Now keep in mind. The the ranker's have said diego state as the twenty fifth best team in the nation. Yet boise state is number one. You don't think the broncos are mad about that going to san diego state this weekend. Try to do something. Not a lot of teams can do their number one of the conference yet. They're not twenty fifth in the country. Forty-three percent of the whole against say boise state. Thirty five percent. Say san diego state eighteen percent say state and two percent throwing it in for utah state. You just say it's a good basketball team. I thought they were gonna get that game number two in fact i. I didn't call on this show but talking to people off the air. I said i think utah state's gonna win that second game. Not the case boise state. Play great at the end fun. Watch though i mean. This conference is fun to watch. That's what's exciting about this thing. So that's our question. Go ahead and vote so part of my blog colfax this week in which just up on the website on the whole show dot com. It talks about yes. The rams go because we asked that poll question. What a month ago months ago he knows this one of the best rams teams in history for basketball around how nineteen forty six to ninety forty six you idiot and listen you would say like what do i say about the nuggets right when i talk about the nuggets in their greatness and the greatest players alex english carmelo. Anthony nicole yokich. What are they all have in common western conference finals. So in order to do that you kind of have to use the same argument for colorado state all those great teams from two thousand and thirteen thousand three to one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and nineteen sixty nine and there's one two three i think and they lost to duke by ten. Which was crazy. that was obviously. Do spend amazing all this year. So what all those. Great teams have to haven't come march madness so you gotta make it into the tournament to be considered at least even in that conversation now. There can be a lot of external things going on. you know. Maybe you're conferences the best in the nation and your odd man out but you could have beat sixty percent of these typically not going to happen in the mountain west conference if you're good enough you're going to get in you know it's obvious if you pass the eye test you're gonna get it or another thing cova. Nineteen look at what's happened to see issue. They're going to miss out at least from our knowledge right now. And i've got do i have kevin kevin lyles twitter pulled up our guy kevin and kelly. We're going to keep we're just gonna keep it pulled up here because you never know man. That's how might shows are twenty two thousand twenty twenty one or nothing yet from kevin at least not seeing but you look at it the situation and it's if they don't reschedule any games and robbed a five games. One of them was a non conference. Game against usc. Unc and nevada was pivotal series. Big 'cause that's a quad to team you know not quite i mean who knows man i mean they could maybe off some upsets in the quad one side of things but they're quad to which if you were to beat both win both of those games you know that that might make it a little bit easier for you to get the at large bid. Had somebody tweet last night after the bears one. Unc played worthy original. Was that team. I don't know what the teams called colfax pacific wondering were. Yeah that's what it is that was worthy railroad. The railroad they played it all kidding aside. They had to get a game. They needed to get a game in. So i don't fault them for that but it's new. No logo team is what i call. Bears ran away with it. Tweeted it out and somebody commented and said hey wired the bears why the blank didn't see us you get to play you and see well. They were supposed to pay last monday. This isn't the same thing that issue did a unc. By the way let me. Just be clear see. She was scheduled to play. Unc on a saturday. They've they kind of got together and said hey. I don't know if it's gonna work and then. They tweeted out that they are playing on saturday. But not against you see they're playing against the issue pueblo and then that so that was a different situation altogether. This has been a week later and you know see just got off the whole covert thing. So yeah could. They have played monday. Could they have made that happen between the two of them. Maybe i don't know they're they're even right now. They're even that's fine whatever Now the bears get back to their regular portion of the schedule. And we're glad to fall that along here on k. k. But as far as that question that we asked a month ago. Yeah as much as as much faith as i have in this team they have to get to the big dance before i can even start to have that conversation and then what if they win a game all right. Now you're up with like two teams. I think there's two two or three teams in issue history. That's gotten past the first round. Now you're really starting to talk and then colefax. You can put an asterisk next to it if you want to. But maybe winning. Chris dempsey told us right. That the nuggets doing what they did in the bubble was actually the opposite of an asterisk like it was harder to do that so they should get more credit for being able to stay mentally focused inside the bubble. Yes and no because if you if it takes more energy to be mentally focused than it takes less energy to not be mentally focused which i would imagine a lot of teams in the playoffs. Were kind of like ours. Brady and go. i'm ready to go. And then you catch him on a couple of off nights that same thing for for college. Basketball look at rams man played since february. Sixth rusty. they're going to be rusty. That's the biggest fear for saturday against air force. There's gonna be some rust there but in terms of storylines i know. Covert has made better stories than you know as far as success than anything if you can come out of this on the other side. It's very very important but who better to lead you in this situation. The nico freaking medven. Think about this colfax three years ago three years ago three years ago layer you stacey fired. That was a weird situation. I go to the weird press conference. It's uncomfortable. I joe parker athletic director for see she was putting a rock and a hard place but they had to make the move you stay. She's good basketball mind but his methods unorthodox maybe not even that maybe they were. Maybe they weren the norm back then and teams are trying to get away from that because dude you stay she would flat out just got mad and practice in media is supposed to be there. Just shut the door. Sorry no media like that's that's how he operated. You never know was he. Laying into those players was screaming at what was happening. And you kinda know. His past scattered past it other schools. You know going out to parties and student parties and all that stuff with college kids So yeah that was a weird situation and the rams were like all right. I remember asking joe on the show. Kovacs are you going to hire somebody. Completely opposite of. Larry stations that the plant. You're know you're going to go with like a nice guy. Great to talk to. And hey maybe if he's good basketball to bonus well. They hit the grand slam. Didn't they nice guy greats. Talk to own my goodness. He knows his stuff. We already knew he knew his basketball but can teams behind. Can you get players behind him. Think about that though all the stuff that niko medved has been through to get here. The his first test was convincing nico carpaccio stacy as you know that. Was your star player and you wanted him to stay with this team he did. And then you you turned out. Hey pointing loss last year in the mountain. West conference tournaments wyoming. But you still put together a really good season twenty win season and then here we are today. They have been you know the started. The whole season started off rocky. Man i mean they were supposed to play. Unc early they were supposed. We're supposed to have these games going. They were delayed with kovin. Severe covert stuff happening over there. Then they finally get in the mix they play the issue blow and everything kind of goes up from there. I mean they had the one bad game against saint. Mary's and they've scored thirty three points. And i mean that moment was probe. That was the downer. Certainly for this team and saint. Mary's was supposed to be really good. I think they're like twelve seven or something at this stage but after that didn't really turn back you know. They won and never lost another series. They split with san diego. Say they split with boise. State display with utah state. They went into wyoming and swept of an improved wyoming team. But they have a chance for some greatness colefax and that's what's really cool to see as i know that. Yeah the naysayers are like dude. They're not even close to one of the great sia shoot teams right now but if they punch ticket. Do you start putting them into that conversation. I think you have to and plus. They're just so like this david. Roddy isaiah stevens. I mean there's so much fun to watch and you put those two players up against some of the greats nc issue history. It's you know it's it's pretty interesting to see how it's all gonna work out but Right now they have a shot first things first though. The only thing that they control can control is air force like right now. To my knowledge we do not have another game scheduled before or after the air force game so they got the air force game on saturday and monday a bad team this year. You have to bring it and there might be some rust but you have to go and then you're going to be watching perfect case scenario is this. You don't schedule any more games. After air force you beat air. Force twice boise state san diego state split and then they each got four losses. You got three issue gets in. Is this a fear though does does the mountain west once you leading it. If that's if you truly feel like the whole again say boise state san diego state. Then see issue okay. We'll see us you pulls it off and they win the regular season title there in so as the mountain west gonna get okay. San diego states in now boise state's going to have to win the tournament to get in the mountain west. You want your best. Representations and again boise state football and basketball. It's been the class of the conference. San diego state has been certainly the main the the bigger class of as far as basketball goes so you want both of those in. Its not saying you don't want issue in but as a conference as a whole you probably wanting those two teams in so if that happens like seriously think about this if boise state plays was it thursday they play san diego state thursday if they play state thursday and they lose and then on saturday they win. Beats air force on saturday then. They beat air force on monday. And then we see the mountain. West conference comes out after the fact and says you know what we are going to have ceus. You play nevada. The two games they miss next week see issue would then have be at the top in that case but then if they lose one of those games vata they're back down and tiebreaker. Goes away now again. You reschedule games with all of these guys with san diego states missing some games. They've all games. So do you reschedule some games. And do what's i guess. What's fair if you can do it next week. Or if you're colorado state do you feel like you're absolutely absolutely screwed. In this scenario. Everything goes your way but then you turn around and it's like okay. You're number one. You're gonna play nevada now again. See issue has to beat them both times. All right they do it. They earn it good but that could be one way. The mountain west looks at it because at the end of the day the amount of games is going to be a controversial discussion. You know ceus you played eighteen games. Boise state is played. Twenty to san diego state has played twenty one so you can look at that both from boise state and san diego states go angle and say wow we had to go up against each other at the end we split and see a shoe jumps above us but they played four three to four less games than us. So you can see the argument on both sides but man it's right there for colorado state. It's really exciting. Time for this area. Obviously we know the buffs are going to get in that's cool. Unc's probably going. Well no. there's no probably there's no at large in the big sky. They have to win the tournament and they've had an up and down year. The bears have so but either way they got shot to all right. There's a lot to vote hume last night so we'll look forward to see if he's gonna play later this week. Twenty two minutes after the hour power to play sports poll question of the day. Who's the best team in the mountain. West conference right now. Because i think you can make a case for all three not utah state. Maybe because they lose both boise state man. I still think utah state team. That could get in. I'd love to see all four of those teams. get in. it'd be a lot of fun. Let's take a short break when we come back. We'll get more into the poll question. There's a lot of outlets out there. Saying george payton's feeder to the fire. That if he doesn't get this to shawn watson deal done then that's already going to be an f grade for him the guy that's the you know the that houston says is not tradeable and wasn't in the front running to begin things man. You guys are broncos country. You guys are strict. You are very strict. We'll be right back listening to the hall's show powered by the energy and thirteen ten kfi k. Brady will be back after the break. What's happening in your own. Backyard listened to no co- now with tanner's swint a northern colorado voice. Thirteen ten kfi k. The persepolis how former colorado buffaloes quarterback and you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten ks k twenty eight minutes after the hour. Welcome back at his top techs tuesday. Load up some of those tax verona. Text the program text. Kfi to nine seven four seven. Thirteen a one if you're new to the program if you're not if you've been texting all along you just got a text nine seven four seven eight thirteen o-on our power play. Sports poll question that. Who's the best team in the mountain west conference today. As we speak boise state san diego state colorado state or utah state. Ceus you split with all three of them. So i mean the argument that boise state better because it played more games and all that. Oh okay maybe maybe right now based on the fact that the rams haven't played since february six. That's where you're going. But i don't know boise. State looks so good against utah state. I mean they took everything that the aggies fired at them. They kept coming right back. It was a it was a hell of a series. That was a lot of fun to watch again. First advantage text line nine seven four seven. Eight thirteen mclean one last week if he wins this week and then wins next week. Boom it's done game over. We've got this. That's how it works. I one to three wins the next piece of sports memorabilia and it could be. It could be mclean. A lot of pressure suddenly forming on. George peyton new general manager now colfax the dialogue around. This went from george payton's in denver. Man i mean he was a well sought after guy cool. He did some cool things with. Minnesota made the playoffs a lot. He's going to replace john elway. He's now now. He's the scapegoat. John always gonna fade into the distance. Whatever he's going to do what we're excited to see. What peyton does to build through the draft cray because he's a number nine. Pick dente to shawn watson watson's available what is available. He wants out shouldn't say available he wants out of houston and then broncos country was like this Wouldn't that be wouldn't that be cool. Deshaun watson denver but yeah right that's stupid. That would never happen fast. Forward a little bit more to okay Yeah he's really one now. And there's like ten teams right now. They're in the mix. And somehow the broncos are in that thing but still seems pretty. Far fetched fast forward a little bit more. Wow the broncos are one of the top. Three favorite landing spots for sean kareem. Jackson said he's been talking to the sean and he wants them to get here. You got jerry jeudy talking about how great he is and all this and why how does shawn might be coming to denver. That's crazy then. Last week the vegas odds hit. And the odds. Are that shawn watson gonna come to denver. Broncos country loses their minds so you go from nets cool to see. A george is gonna do this next year. There's not a lot of pressure on him to shot and wants to come to denver. George peyton better make it happen. Or he's already he's already starting out with an f a failing grade first semester fail. That's all i can three weeks. I mean come on. That's three weeks colfax. We've gone from. George payton's going to rebuild this team over time. There's no pressure next year because down there in a weird year of no owner to you'd better do whatever it takes to get to shawn watson or you're starting this thing off on the wrong foot. I mean boy. It's was elway under that much pressure to bring in peyton manning. I mean because no because half. The broncos country was love with tim. They're like the idea of replacing. Tim tebow was just unfathomable no way. This guy is too good but here we are was reading a story from mile high report andrew mason talking about the headline catches me but if you go through to read it a little bit It says george payton has a plan. Abc and d for this team and that includes watson wait so he's all of those plants wasn't always biggest. The biggest joke about john elway in his career. Was this right here. Yeah we're going plan a plan as peyton manning peyton what about when he retires peyton manning he more questions. We'll he's gonna retire some point not peyton manning. He'll retire to yes or no question. John elway peyton manning. All right plan a play played is we are banking hard on this broncos country. You guys gotta just settle down. Take a step back breathe. You're giving up everything to get this guy and you don't even know if he's coming. You guys are getting your hopes up. Houston still not budging on this whole thing. You have. carolina releasing players left right to make room. They're they're like making the moves. You got the miami dolphins doing the same thing. And i mean now miami. It's ready to ready. Made team right there. So i don't know why the odds came out. I don't know i don't know what that means. The show watson say something did he tell somebody that i mean again i just. For some reason. Like when kareem jackson and i love kareem avalon respect former player but when he says yeah. Sean said this is place you'd like to go. Koufax is kind of. Like when i go. Hey i went on vacation. This summer i went to the virgin islands. And you're not really a virgin islands guy and you're going. Oh yeah this seems like a nice place. Then my story would be colefax states that that is his number one destination for vacation next year. I mean that's how these things go. The sean could've just said. Yeah man. I i respect what you guys did in denver. You know you you've had a raw deal for a while but man. I love the city of denver. Every time we've come there. I've really enjoyed the city and i love that place. Could that have been what he said. Rather than no place. I could see myself laying down for ten years and winning a lot of point and even then saying that to his former teammate. He said it's a jacket by the ways kind of intimidating guy. Just saying don't get your hopes up for this and this whole idea. Andrew mason talking on mile high report sane. George payton has a plan. Abc and d. For this team. And that includes watson basically every plan at this stage revolves around to shawn watson and to me that is a scary scary game thirty five minutes after the hour. Let's get out of here real fast. Colfax let's check in with the latest on the local sports flash here mornings with gail weekdays. Six to nine and northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi their child that their qb training dot com and you are listening to the whole show on thirteen ten kfi k. Forty minutes after the hour colfax just recovered this one from from a to z moments ago. Tiger woods injured in single car crash in l. a. He was extracted with jaws of life. Tiger woods was hospitalized. Following a bad single car accident in l. a. county on tuesday morning with officials requiring the jaws of life to free him from the vehicle. So here's the gist. Of the story. On february twenty third two thousand twenty one at approximately seven twelve in the morning l. Ast responded to a single vehicle rollover traffic collision on the border of rolling hills estates and rancho palos verdes officials. Say the vehicle was traveling northbound on hawthorne boulevard at black horse rose when it road when it crashed the vehicle sustained major damage. The driver in sole occupant was identified as pga golfer tiger woods. The officials confirmed more on this. Mr woods was extricated from the wreckage of life by los angeles county firefighters and param paramedics then transported to a local hospital by ambulance fours injuries. It's unclear what caused the accident. He was in the area for his annual genesis. Invitational golf tournament. So nothing really. The story is developing. We don't know how serious he is at this point but We do know the vehicle sustained some pretty obvious serious enough to have to use the jaws of life to get in there and get him out man tough story. That's a tough one. Colfax of course tiger woods has had an interesting road you know in his career and certainly that battle back to what he hopes can get to that you know greatness. I was just listening to the power trip. Pete and doug talking about tiger and what he would he would he finally get back on top and Here we go this story here today. So that is a rough one. And we'll certainly keep an eye out for it. As the story progresses first advantage text line nine seven four seven eight thirteen o one nine seven four seven eight. Thirteen a one. Hope the best there again. We have no idea how how bad off is at least at this point time so we'll do our best to keep our eyes on story first vanished text line again nine seven four seven eight. Thirteen one colfax. I got something for you with rains. Been cooking here. And everybody hates the rockies. Odd deg bond for dalzell team. Dick every day and i didn't just curse there's always there's always that. Oh jeff brian which is awful. He's cocky okay. I agree with those things to an extent. I do you guys. I have said a lot of good things about nick. Montfort on this program as he does a lot of great local things in this northern colorado area and this well county all right. But here's something for the rest of this group quo fax now. Everybody's making it seem like and again knowing earned auto love. The guy didn't think he could win here and i don't think he can win here. I'm looking at the roster right now. i'm not looking at it going. Oh yeah that team's going to beat the dodgers. That's the this is the one but look at the rest of these guys. Every one of these guys her marquez. Kyle freeland sends a teller. John gray daniel bard ellen. Lsd as scared hamson ryan mcmahon. Ram al toppy. Trevor story charlie blackmon. Josh fuentes sam hilliard. What are they all have in common. This was the team that nolan aaron auto did not deem worthy of the build around him. Now okay you can get specific on that say well. He didn't mean trevor. he didn't mean marquez. he didn't mean charlie. Well he didn't mean ryan with man. Okay well now suddenly got a decent team. Then i mean he got four five guys that he didn't mean. How do you as a player. Maybe other than trevor story. That's the only one. How do you not on the rest of this roster. Look at that and say we weren't good enough for nolan aren't auto. That's why he wanted out. That's why that's why he wanted out of colorado to a year and a half ago. That's what this whole drama has been about and the rockies granted him his wish. We all know that that was terrible. Deal i agree. I'm not taking it back. I'm just saying colfax. It's a bummer. That it happened like this. But it started with nolan wanting out of colorado. Now do we know just asking. Do we know that there were any other partners. Willing to come to the table for nolan with that contract because you boy mark and said it all the time. Nobody's trading nolan in this climate with this with the covert situation. With the fact that there was no fans in the stands. They lost a lot of money last year. No one's picking up that contract. So i'm just trying to look at this for the rockies fans which again a preseason tickets that they only like a thousand so they sold out within a record time so if there's your boycott is not going to be a boycott just not going to happen at the end of the day. It's still sports. It's not politics. is it or wait. Is it so okay. i'm listen. I'm not trying to give dick pass. I'm not trying to get brighter to pass. But do we know that there were a lot of other suitors that were coming to the table saying. Hey i'm going to trade you three great prospects straight up for one or was this more of what you were getting was hunting that contract right. Now i'll wait until he's a free agent. I'll wait till you ops out new year. I gotta wait a year. That's fine and then we'll convince him to come here as a free agent because no one's going to go to a winner talking about that because think about it. I know it's awful minority here. I'm terrible brady. You can't possibly go here with this. You know but if i'm a team going. I'm not gonna trade for that right now next year. According i'll get him to come over. Here is a free agent. If there wasn't anyone else you hold onto them for the time being you don't settle on that trade. You just got that. We just mentioned the tiger woods thing but yes we're keeping our eye on we When you look at this situation why would you hold on. He doesn't want to be here. He hates -british this organization. And you're going to get you basically get nothing for him. But what's holding onto him going to do in this situation. Just make it worse Dixon the best move for the rocky. So far this off season has been ian desmond deciding to opt out again. What is that i mean. Come on. i isn't the isn't the covert going away or we're masking tape and we're got the vaccine now. I know i'm getting great for this one too because i'm seeing my twitter people. Hey those of you given desmond crap for. Make a family decision and opting out your jerks for that. Do you know how much. I wish. I could opt out right. Just be around my family all day. That'd be great. But i know i'm not an awesome be. Well i'm not a baseball player. That was awesome five years ago. I it's weird to me. That's just weird but whatever the rockies don't have to pay him and he hasn't been good he really hasn't lived up. Here's a lived up to that contract at all so that worked out. I'm not somehow rounding this into shape. Where i'm saying that that you know the the rockies did right by this whole situation. I am willing to admit that this was an impossible situation. I don't know that teams were willing to do this. I just don't think a lot of people were lining up saying. Yeah i'm gonna absorb this giant contract when we lost what what did they say. Revenue was last year for people. Attending games was fifty percent. Something like that. There's a lot and then we don't know we don't know if there's going to be fans allowed stands this year so if you're a team you absorb that contract and now suddenly. You're like wait. We we're gonna make that up and this also could be bad move by For okay let me ask you this question. Hogan's if no one stays on this team beating the dodgers this year. Are they going to the playoffs last year. Are they wildcard team now so the return was bad. That's never going to be disputed ever buy me. The return was bad. I guess. I just i don't know did the rockies have any other options i guess in my brain. I can't fathom a better deal being out there and the rockies didn't take it you know why is that's the case then this they're worse than i thought but if there truly is was a better move and they just didn't take it then. Yeah they're awful correct moves would have been fire bride. It's trying to restore the relationship with nolan and rate for revenue to come back and no you don't beat the dodgers but you have a better chance with on. Here's the thing while county swami nolan wasn't willing to wait fire bright h bring in new. Gm we're starting this whole thing over again. Opt outs happening next year. Whether or not you like your new. Gm or not nolan wants to win. Now and i'm not convinced otherwise. I'm not convinced that he would have waited it out. Oh you're firing brightest this year to show me that you love me nido bringing a new. Gm new gm's getting the lay of the land. He's not too aggressive just yet and still the rockies. Still tough place to pitch. You're telling me that a new gm player to be named comes in and makes this thing so beautiful so glorious ads. All the bells and whistles that nolan stops and goes on up. I'm a stay. i'm often back in. I'm taking the rest of my contract. You would have had to prove this year this year with a new gm and to me. That's those are high expectations based on what. I'm not siding with brian. I'm not siding with montfort. I am however saying this whole thing got started because nolan are and auto looked at this group that starting before you. Today herman marquez. And kyle freeland antonio sends the tele and ryan mcmahon and gary hamson and all those names that are okay and said. This isn't good enough for me. Jeff what are you going to do. A blowup ensues. They hate each other. No one wants out. These guys are left to hopefully try to prove something john gray says. Hey we got something to prove now. Big time trevor. Story says you know. It's weird. But i liked the feeling around here and i want this team to lean on me. I said it last year colfax. Do you remember that. Trevor story will be the better star over dawn. Aaronow when it's all said and i remember that i did say that. Wow this is his opportunity to make me look amazing. Already have that covered but you it look a little better all right. We'll take a quick break here. I'm just throwing it out there. There might not have been another a bunch of baseball teams lining up for this really really crazy deal. Maybe the rockies had to look at these other guys here before you say. I'm boycotting the rockies. There's still some fun guys to root for we'll be right back. Think your bracket can win it all.

B.I.G. Interview | Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos on Potential QB Trades Beyond Watson

"Monday five minutes after the twelve o'clock hour you're listening to the whole show powered by energy. We're live is always from the auto collision specialist studios kicking this thing off the right way bringing zak stevens of deon. Vr broncos on zach my friend. What's the latest with the broncos. It's hurry up and wait now. I mean we were hot and heavy for a while and now. It's what are the broncos gonna do with some of these big contracts and shawn watson situation. Where do we stand my friend. Brady what what's going on and it really feels like the offseason now and and i have to remind myself the offseason actually started you know seven weeks ago but now it now like you said things are kind of starting to calm down. Feel like an off season And of course you know some news last week About von miller But now things are starting to calm down. George peyton bitten into the swing of things. And he's going to make some big decisions coming up in the next few weeks. But i would expect that to be closer to the middle of march than to anything big to happen right now. You take us through the von miller thing right because we hear that it's going kind of nuts last week's calmed down a bit. But where do we stand here on the realistic chances that von miller is bronco going into next season. Yes so the news last week was pretty much a no brainer type of news saying that. If the broncos are enabled to come to a new contract with von miller the team will not pick up his contract option. and i've been saying that For for a long time. Von miller is not going to be back on the broncos next year with his current twenty two million dollar cap hit eighteen million dollars in cash brady. I don't believe in talking to people. I don't believe that that is going to happen. That he will be back next year. So it is that simple. If if von miller isn't willing to rework a new contract. And if that's the route that george peyton even wants to take In terms of reworking new contract prevent then he will not be back next year. So the broncos have until the middle of march march sixteenth to pick up his contract option. Which would guarantee seven million dollars of his contract and essentially mean. The von miller will be back next year. But what the broncos can do is if they declined that option than von miller will be an unrestricted free agent and be able to sign with any team or what they can do over these next three weeks is they can renegotiate a new contract prevent whether that's just him taking the pay cut this year. Which probably isn't that likely. Or whether it's vaughn getting a new deal in terms of an extension two or three year extension on top of that ring his happening down this year and then also bring the average salary down from around twenty million dollars to something less than that so the question comes down to will be open to a pay cut in restructure and will that be an extension. Will it just be a one year. Deal that bond will be looking at And i think that it's going to have to be a pretty significant. Pay cut for the broncos to bring him back. I mean we're talking about. He's do eighteen million this year. I think we're talking about ten or eleven million dollars in order for him to be back. So i think it's going to be a very interesting couple of weeks. And how we've seen von react so far to the idea of a pay cut doesn't seem like he's going to be open to sizable fake zach. Do you think it'd be an easier. Decision for von as far as staying with the broncos if if the broncos if he thought that they were closer if they were a playoff team if he got that sense because he's made some good money he he has gone to a super. He has won a super bowl. Mvp but maybe once another one there to to really solidify his legacy Do you think that changes things. If you looked at the broncos with or without the shawn watson said this is a playoff team we might have one more crack at this thing. Yeah absolutely. I think that would help. And it would kind of remind me a lot of the demarcus ware situation when he left the cowboys. In order to play for the broncos he stopped peyton manning on that team. He saw von miller on that team and he saw an opportunity to find elite win now different. Because von miller has already one with the broncos but that would be a big deal because demarcus ware could have gotten more money than what the broncos gave him in free agency when he became A bronco but he wanted to win. And so i think it would be the exact same thing with von miller. We saw Really two years ago since we didn't get to see on last year after the injury we saw that the losing was really wearing on him So i think if they were to land the dak prescott shawn watson a quarterback that could give them a chance to play right now and compete right now than then he would be more open to that book unfortunately as a stand right now brady. It's it's hard to sell von any guy on the idea of winning right now for for a discount. Where do you put von in your your mount rushmore. Your greatness setup. I mean i think most of us agrees a hall of famer. Where is he. Because at one point i thought man if he can if he can get the broncos back into the playoffs maybe he's in that top three up there with alway now not gonna pass away but in the td sharpe range. Where where do you put him. Yeah and and i think where you start for this week. An easy place for me to start it. You look at super bowl. Mvp's and so you have tv. You have john away. And you have von miller now all those guys at a lot of other things besides just the super bowl mvp. So i think he's up there. And then and then you said for that fourth guy you can look at floyd little the franchise you can look at shannon sharpe there. There's a lot of other places to go there. But i think that that's easy. You got the super bowl. Mvp and you've done a lot of other things including the franchise leader in sacks. I think vons up there Even if his career with the broncos over Right now and he doesn't play another snap with them he has he has certainly left a huge imprint on the broncos and is likely to be a hall of famer as well zak stevens joining us from denver. Broncos all right. Let's go over to the quarterback side of things. You mentioned. okay shawn watson. we've all said that name of bazillion times dak prescott you so you mentioned that prescott now everything i've been reading and and again this has changed recently because it was leading up to the cowboys are going to figure something out but not so fast right. Yeah yeah not not so fat. I can't believe that they didn't learn from last year. Brady and see how important dak prescott is to them. I thought dax injury was going to make it. So jerry jones signed dak prescott to a long term contract with right away but it doesn't seem like that and i can't imagine that they just let him hit the free agent market. What they can do again they could tag him again or sign him to a long term deal and a sign and trade sort of deal. It's it's crazy. That teams aren't taking care of their franchise. Quarterbacks brady i mean. I just can't imagine the broncos getting a franchise quarterback and then not just agreeing to pay him whatever he wants and that that's what it is in today's nfl. And now we're seeing the quarterbacks do what mba players have done and now they're starting to get a voice and determine where they get to go. So you just have to make your franchise quarterback happy. It's just as simple as that and the cowboys aren't doing that. And so it would be interesting to see what a sign and trade would potentially look like for dak prescott now. There is some risk because he's coming off that big injury but he's a guy who's going to make thirty five forty million dollars a year and he's very interesting because he's obviously going to get elite money. Where ever he goes. Is he an elite quarterback. I kinda put him on on the borderline of that right now. I put him probably the top of tier two elite but he has the chance to become you are taking a little gamble there with deck up but still young would have a lot of time He would probably play another contractor. To where are we with. Houston houston saying fairly consistent at shawn's going to stay there. But i mean at some point you have to look at the bengals. We're in this position they finally gave in with carson. Palmer wendy you what do you see. How do you see this ending with houston and is there any way. They sit at the table with john. And say let's make another go where sorry for being a terrible organization seriously. I mean. i don't know how they're going to get to the table with an if he's not even to answer their phone calls. So it seems like do sean wants wants to be anywhere but houston and it. There's been no indication that he's going to back down in any sense from that including potentially missing the offseason program which may not happen anyway but it does seem like john is very serious about this worth the texans. Don't trade him going into the season. He may not play for them because he may not want to give in to them at all. And unfortunately for the broncos. I think this is something. That's going to take a long time to play out because i think the texans are digging their heels in for the long term but that is not smart for the texans at the texans went to to change their appearance of the world in any way it would be smart for them to trade to sean sooner than later but also for them planning right now before the draft would be smart for them to trade sean as well if they if they really don't think that they're going to be of keep him which it doesn't seem like they will but if they don't if they wait until after the draft to trade to shawn watson they're trading for picks that are unknown. We're right now. they could probably get the second overall. Pick the third overall. Pick the ninth overall pick and any team that gets to shawn watson is probably not going to have the second or the third or the ninth overall. Pick next year. Unless they're the houston texans. Who would have had that if they didn't blow it by trading away that pick so that trading him before the draft is so much more valuable to them and because they don't seem to be a good organization brady. I have no confidence that they're going to trade him before. How much of a risk. With george peyton again. You shawn's assure thing. I think we all agree on that whether we agree on the price or not is kind of not the point. But we all agree that shawn watson a very good quarterback. He's up there with the elite status. But if you risk it all these draft picks that you and i have been talking about you drink a player like briley chabot whatever and it doesn't work out. What does that do for. I mean how big of a risk is that for. George patton knowing going to be new owners coming in eventually. They're going to look at that. Move first and foremost and basically say did it work out. Did not do we pay too much. Yeah i it would be. It would be a huge blow to george peyton and the broncos not just this year next year but for probably the rest of george payton's contract because we're talking about trading potentially three first round picks and you really want those first round picks to start being a huge claire for ub that pro bowl level and your two or year three. Well that pretty much takes you talking about you know a first round. Pick two years from now talking about that type of player being a player for two years from then it takes you to near the end of yours. Payton's contract the six year contract. That would really really hurt you if for some reason to sean doesn't work out. But that's the good thing about the shawn watson. Tradegy know the type of player and person you're getting whereas if you draft a guy at nine you have no idea you're taking a big risk but then again you're not giving up nearly as much you could turn back around next year and with your first round. Pick take another quarterback if you trade for a shot and watson. You're not gonna be able to turn around and draft a quarterback next year. If for some reason it doesn't pan out or you're not even going to be able to do it your after Either because you're not gonna have those first round picks so it it certainly would be going all in and that's just why I'm a little hesitant outside shawn watson. I'm a little hesitant intended. George peyton is going to go all in on something this year because by the time the draft comes around he's only going to have been on the job for four months. He may want to wait until next year to make his big move at quarterback. If it's not a you know a pretty much. Sure thing with the shawn watson. it's so interesting because we're all we all. We've all said it about the draft. Hey it's a crapshoot but if you decrease your chances of getting great players then yeah it's really going to be tough. And i think that's been the scary thing for me is no. I'm not convinced that just because they're number nine patrick's retain comes in whatever. I'm not convinced that that just automatically makes him a big time franchise player. But if you if you lose three of those guys over time which what round or what position they being. You decrease those chances so again. There is so much away here because this decision. Whether it's the shawn watson or you stay the course is going to perhaps define his career for the well for the for the next six years. Yeah absolutely i it very well could and if he gets to shawn watson he's feeling pretty good about signing the second contract. Where there's there's no other guys where you would feel as good about that in the draft this year outside of trevor lawrence and another thing that you have to take into consideration with it is george. Peyton is draft and develop guy. That's something that he stated right when they hired him. That's something that joe ellis. John elway made very clear It's part of the lifeblood of the broncos. Now is george payton. Said his drafting and developing. But it would be quite a move to come in saying drafting and developing. You're going to run an organization and then a couple months later. Trade all of your valuable draft assets for the next three years in order to get a quarterback now. I still doing that because the quarterback is just that important but for people that are skeptical. There's reason to be skeptical. That george would be willing to do that. Why do you think too shy. You shared this last week. The odds of of where to shawn. Watson it's going to land the broncos are number one that's up there. Why what what. What do you think is going on. What have you seen. And why would he choose the broncos at this stage yeah holy smokes by that. That is just crazy. Multiple sportsbooks after broncos as the clear favorites. Really to land beyond watson and the reason for that would be just the weapons that he hasn't it reminds me a lot of peyton. Manning picking the broncos Back in twenty twelve and the broncos. Were they a great team. No they weren't they were eight. They went to the playoffs. They had an incredible run with people but they weren't a thirteen and three team. That peyton manning was coming to but what they were was they were a team that had so many weapons on offense that we're just waiting for a quarterback to come in and take off with them. You can look at the denver broncos right now until the exact same thing about the offensive side of the ball so many young talented players that are just need that quarterback to come in and then they could take off and not just for the next two years You know shawn watson could have jerry jeudy k j hammer noah fant. He could have all of these guys for five to ten years playing at elite level with them. So that's what would be appealing to him now. To sean has connections to miami. He has connections to carolina in terms of just personal life. So those teams make sense in that regard miami of course a little bit better than the broncos last year if you if you just wanna look at record. But i don't think any team offers a better set of weapons for dijon to come in and put up great numbers right away and then by the way you have a defensive head coach who should probably have the defense being pretty good but the show on may say You know. I want my offensive coach. I want an offensive coaching here. So that would obviously hurt the broncos. It's going to be so interesting man. I know you're all over this. You guys are constantly working on it. Put stories out there putting podcast zach. What he working on recently that we could check out via twitter or dnv ours Website this week i. I'm looking at. I'm wrapping up my expectations series. Look in a cage eighty handlers rookie season and then also looking at players that the broncos can't cut because broncos may need some salary cap space if they want to sign the dak prescott or something like that but there's some players that the broncos can cut to free up cap space and there's also some players they can't cut so taking a look at all of that as george peyton. Well it's always excellent stuff from your my friend. Appreciate your time and again. We'll see where we are next monday. Absolutely i mean brady. It's the off season. But we know what the broncos that doesn't really the so many question marks around this team and again whether it starts with quarterback justin simmons or von miller. I mean there's a lot of storylines to follow along and man. We appreciate you rolling along with us. Love what you do with the you guys are killing it and we'll catch up with you next monday. I can't wait. Thanks brady have a great week and you to zak stevens. Dnv broncos excellent guy follow him at twitter or on twitter at z. A. c. stevens. Dnv zak stevens. Dvr power to play sports. Poll questions not broncos related based on what. You've seen so far with the nuggets. How far they going in the playoffs. How deep into the playoffs or they. So i didn't even put this option up there. Colefax there some hogan's are like are they even gonna make plus. They're making the playoffs. There's no way that i mean that's going to happen. This team will get it figured out enough to get in the playoffs. But how far i Second round exit first round exit. They'll make it to the western conference finals win at all or advanced to the finals. Thirty seven percent of the whole against say second round exit all right so you have them take a step back. I don't think that's the worst thing in the world considering the competition in the west but my expectations are pretty high. And we'll talk about that throughout the day today. A lot to get to kevin lytle will join me in the second hour to talk about the mountain west conference tiebreakers. Colorado state beats airforce twice. What does that do boise state. He goes eight are huge huge match up later this week and we'll talk about that we'll get to my good the bad and the ugly. Unc's back out of tonight.

April 5 Hour 1 Good, Bad and Ugly Weekend Recap | Zac Stevens on Broncos Real Hopes

"Famine is after they twelve o'clock hour good afternoon northern colorado. You're listening to the whole show powered by pdc energy. And of course we are live from the auto collision specialist studios a lot to unpack from the weekend. That was the rockies. Surprise surprise ended up losing the series to the dodgers had some moments in that series though had some moments and i want to get into that john gray was absolutely fantastic. And we'll talk about that until he gets like cramps so going to have to eat a lot of band bananas and stuff. What else helps you from. Keeping those cramps down man skit getting stretches in yeah gets a stranger. I think a lot of water and bananas. Yup that's what they tell you. I mean that's i'm glad he's okay but that's a little annoying right. I mean you're up to nothing. He's pitching lights out cramps. And not much you can do about it but just one of those things So four games in for the rockies there off today and they are one and three just like that tell quick it moves. Isn't it can get out of hand quickly for the rockies now diamondbacks cup tomorrow night. We'll have it here on thirteen ten. Kfi for tonight the national championship who've baylor and gonzaga. I gotta say though ucla. And i said this. I said the pac twelve is going to surprise a lot of people i didn't say. Ucla was going to be that team but still the pac twelve is a damn good conference and i think you know when see you lost a couple of games. The pac twelve even to like oregon state people were all pac. Twelve soft knives. Just think it's so competitive. The beat each other up throughout the course of the season. So some absolu- wild games there. Baylor's who you got colds kansas. So whatever baylor baylor championship. Oh there you go i. I'm going to baylor because that's what my bracket says. Yep so i. I need it. I won't win. I will not wait. I've fallen for nfl. i think i would. I still could finish in the top three though which would be cool. That's not bad it's respect back. It's not a win two three years ago when i'm one. Yeah but we didn't. We didn't take stats on that. You know we didn't record. It is in the hall of fame when you walk in. Yeah is it. There's a picture is a picture of all of our move like something else to find another statue or something in a back room. Noobs bowling alley down in one of the lanes. Yeah i think that's where it is. was pretty phenomenal. Because i mean typically we we usually cut it off around seventy or so brackets and as far as registration and sometimes not all seventy philadelphia. Missed the deadline. Whatever but that's still pretty good. Yeah you still have that you can still hang onto that. I'll hang onto it forever and not last this year. So whatever you know. What are we doing the roof thing you know. The weather's supposed to be bad again tomorrow. So let's do that. It's not due tomorrow. You don't wanna get too hot either. I know sunscreen. We'd definitely need to get sunscreen if you're gonna go out there and it's hot like a week or two. There's a nice seventy degree day. We'll get it figured out in the next week or so. Yeah we got That's all done with great tournament and really entertaining tournament for the most part At ucla gonzaga game was was not What else happen. Ads continue to roll the nuggets. Continue to roll. Although they were down eighteen to orlando in orlando at home. I thought this was going to be I thought this was going to be a scary game. Kind of one of those trap games. But aaron gordon former magic former magic had twenty. Four points spurred this comeback on denver outscored orlando in the second half seventy two to forty four something clicked. And here's the sad thing is joker to meet doesn't look i mean. He looks just as good as he always does. But the numbers aren't there you know lately. The numbers aren't there in harden is really picking up some steam in the. Mvp watch and how do you feel about an mvp guy that changed teams. You know early on the season. I don't know when he officially changed teams. But he wanted out. Do you think that that's like. Should that be something you hold against him. I'm not saying she keep him from winning the mvp but should it be a knock. He wanted out of houston. He wanted to go to a better team. Clearly he wanted to go to a better team brooklyn better team. I just wonder should there be something against that. I'm trying to be home. I really am. But i mean i'm watching joker and i'm what i watched him against harden some games with harden clips and his numbers. Are there assist sister there but does he really make everybody on that team. Better jokers numbers last. Three or four games aren't that mind-blowing. I think he almost had a triple double last night. But it's it's what else he does man. I mean he makes everybody around him better yet. Seventeen points but sixteen assists nine rebounds. Couldn't get one more. Rebound joker come on one more. I mean his plus minus plus fifteen tied for the best on the team yet last night which murray jamal importer still doing their thing. Twenty and twenty two Porter had twelve boards popping in double doubles like crazy. Aaron gordon twenty points. Great defense against seven boards. I mean he's getting better so the team that has won fourteen of their last seventeen games. They are undefeated. Since getting aaron gordon on this roster and they're climbing up the standings. I believe As of today i had that of. I don't know why i reopened it. Wanted to look and see where they were sitting at fourth. They are a game behind the clippers. One game behind the clippers and their two and a half games three and a half games behind the sons it is. They can still make the climb. Utah's not slowing down. They're just not denver. Has the pistons tomorrow night. You gotta think that that's another opportunity. I mean jeremy grant plumlee. You're gonna have another family reunion there. That's at home so you get some home hopeless home fan. Some fans in the stands at four thousand or so then two games against san antonio a decent team boston a decent team this year and your golden state. It's not an easy stretch with the with the two spurs games boston. Golden state miami It's not an easy stretch at all. But some somewhere. They should be able to win a good chunk of those games right there. We are getting down to it. We are certainly getting down to it. So the mvp watch. Where will the nuggets. It i just think you want to avoid the lakers. That first round. That's where i'm really wanted to get out of. Just avoid the lakers in the first round. Whatever that takes right now. Moving to fourth doesn't help any she'd still be playing the lakers. Only difference they get home court advantage if it goes to seven i is text line is nine seven four seven eight thirteen a one our power to play sports. Poll question is when you can whatever when it's easier for you because it's limited. I don't think you're gonna have issues going to rockies games but where would you go first. where are you going. I you're gonna get to go to games. Where i to see the nuggets play the avs play of the rockies. Play and those are not. I didn't throw the broncos. Because last time i checked it's april so i mean if you're a big sports fan you're gonna make it a one of these games one of these teams who you seen for who you want to watch. You got two teams right now. That could be world champions in the avs and the rockies. No right the nuggets. But what was this weekend. Colfax was core gis. It was beautiful out. You just wanna get hot dog. He had a beer. Go sit and relax and watch the rockies and maybe a weird cat runs out onto the field. So there's that and that's how the rockies always gets you we might not have the product but we have the place to enjoy it the product we all. I get to pick one of those teams. You wanna watch or areas you want to be at both. Our ads nuggets. Both ball arena. Coors field's got the venue they have that venue man. So you go to the ride iota rock and he goes through the rockies. Here's here's here's why. I think you're okay with that. I know are gonna freak out but what you're seeing with the nuggets and the avs is so much fun but you don't get to see it as good at the game. It's more about the experience right. Yep i'm a tv guy. Definitely i will go to games for for now like i don't really go as a fan anymore. If i go to games. I bring the computer out. I mean the media the media room there press box and i'm doing whatever whether that's just tweeting because that's media now working on blogs whatever just covering the team being there as a worker so i don't go to games outside of that so i mean if you're like if you're wanting experienced than yeah you rockies that's a place to go that's a hang out the fell getting together the ladies getting together the dates whatever you wanna do you. You've got that now nuggets. Avs ongoing their four show. That's it. I don't care about seats i don't care about sitting around with the fellows. I am there to watch strict straight up. I want to see this nuggets team on this apps might as well just do that couch. I still thought it was interesting to throw that out there. Because i'm curious if the rockies still get some of that clearly meaning they do. It looks like way more than twenty one thousand. Isn't it like it. Like parts of it almost looks like full. Certain camera angles. Pretty cool man. Good to see it was a little more right. It did it. You didn't have to worry about these weird little cut out. Cardboard people in the stands and stuff. That was cool rocky lose though one of three d. mcclay says. How do i know what. I placed in march man. You got you gotta go to. Cbs you go to the same thing that you. Where'd you filled your bracket mclean and you just go look standings and if you have to look probably probably down the road there. I don't know you could be high up. I'm not sure but just go. Check it out Not allowing nachos popcorn at nuggets games really nachos i pop popcorn not just because it's always that she's everywhere she always like wiping your face trying to get the odds are reading. Covert yourself. yeah. I think what popcorn seems like a again because it's just that constant. What if they tell you not to grab handfuls and you just have to go one time and then if you invite tweezers they catch you handful in a popcorn bag. They come up and they're like out out and colfax just made me really mad saying he's going to see the rockies over the nuggets nuggets never any respect have fun at the rockies bar with covert rule. I never said the rocks the nuggets. I said i go to. It's more about the venue. Now it's more about the venue. There's no debate no ball arena verse coors field. What's which one's funner more fun to be at right. Yeah that sentence by the way we followed you. We were right there with you. And there's no question especially it was like the most beautiful weekend in ever ever the best weekend in april. It was so perfect. Yeah so i mean yeah then you wise coors beaten out ball field or whatever empower field switching coors is the only one that stayed coors by the way and that also makes it less confusing for my brain. You know people are like you. Want to go to bali. And i'm like what is there. I don't wanna see ballet. I'm a sports guy man. No that's right ballroom and empower field. What is this some kind of public speaker thing and howard. Madonna need any of that. I wanted to watch the. Oh that's right okay. My bad my bad again. No i don't. I don't think it's wrong to go into that mindset. I mean i think it's still kinda like all right. Well this is the venue. So here's the question like if the nuggets could play at coors field rather watch them nuggets there or the rockies. It's see nuggets at coors field. Yeah over the rockies. Yeah i'd love to see the nuggets. Just make that happen. Yeah set it up outdoor. Let's go texture here new texter right you got you got the rest of segments to come up with a nickname otherwise colfax give you a nickname usually based on your most recent tax right. Yep all right. Pretzels are allowed with. Nacho cheese nachos are not allowed without your is that right with only forty five hundred fans at ballerina. It's easier for the refs to hear yellow to suck is that's true. You do have a better chance of like somebody here and go. Lets and actually personally yeah. Did you see like slap raw. Who slapped ross last night. He's one of those joker frustration fouls he's still got it there man ross by him he thinks he joker thinks he gets fouled ross by and jokers big old lap. Ross looks at them. Like what the hell and then realizes wait. You're seven foot monster. I'm not gonna talk trash. But why did you do that man and jokers like you know something serbian right and nobody knows that's fine. You can say whatever the hell you want. He did get a little superstar treatment there because that should he hauled off and they said there was. No what did they say like. There's no wind no wind up. I think it looks like wind up but the refs were not very good in that game but the nuggets still found a way all right so new texter you got you got a moment here get that nickname in otherwise time feeling some pretzels and cheese pretzels cheese greenacres. Can we suggest a name. O- not show pretzel. I like that. Except she's shares. She's already in here man. It's a she texter really holly. Oh oh why are we got to mclean's mclean. I like it. What is what's your name. Your text reading is faster than my. Oh suggesting it. Nacho pretzel like that's a good that's a good nickname that's not bad. It's not bad. What else do we got. Colefax and mccaffrey is going to be on the show today. The unc football head coach play for the broncos won super bowls. Not a big deal looking forward to catching up with him. They had a scrimmage on saturday against issue. They have another scrimmage this saturday however not open to the public be going up against a chadron state so you know this is kind of what they thought they were going to do spring ball with a little extra there for the most part. So we'll cochon zak. Stevens will join me or broncos update when we come back colfax. We need to get to the good the bad the ugly you know we just been busting through this thing. I i tend to agree with you. You know if you haven't been to a game over a year. i mean. I'm a nuggets guy. But i'm more like i'm gonna be glued to the tv and really studying up on what's happening. I can't get that as much from a sports show host. I get it. I'm coming at it from different angles than a lot of our whole against. Because i mean if i go to a game i'm not getting as much from it for the show other than the experience coors field. You know baseball. You're getting the same amount of what you're getting at. All you won't get to see the the slow mo cams and all that stuff. But i'm kind of with you there plus you see. The cat lives a coors field. I saw that and has running all over the field. He escaped the trainers people. Whatever they got him and he looks like he was going to eat them and they kind of like i guess they had. I'm ready to go. And then he just escaped and he's still he's still there. I saw running behind home plate. The cat for yeah. I paused it. My dad was with me. And i said did you see that cat. It looked huge from my angle behind home plate and then suddenly you heard billy saying there's a cat on the field so it must have like ninja over the home. Run the the the play or the fence back there and then it took off running. It looked like it was out of breath. It was like i was like. Is that some kind of bob cap. She lying or something. I don't know what that is. And then they got it. And that was that i love it. Because cody bellinger. Was it two years ago when that girl like jumped over the fence to go up close to bellinger because he's a heart throb. Tried to hug income. Well this cat got like right up next to him. It's like everybody no matter why is coming out over the fence to be next to cody bellinger. You know i do the same day. Be real honest. Twenty two minutes after the hour.

Join us in a moment but first colefax. Let's get to the good. The bad and the ugly presented by f-famous banking made simple. Well the good man that gonzaga. Ucla game was absolutely phenomenal. And i thought we're getting ready to go double overtime. I was ready. I was pumped. I was really bummed. It didn't but what more can you say about this Short with three do set the socks vic season. My goodness it took everything. Zags had to beat. Ucla jalen suggs buzzer beating. Three and overtime. Since the zags to the title game undefeated they have a chance at pure greatness goal facts but watch out baylor took care of a pretty damn good. He was detained by twenty or nineteen points. And i i got baylor winning this one. I think the buck stops in the championship game. Zag loses their very first game. We'll we ended more of that a little bit later on the bad the rockies lose but there were some little things in there that we could take john gray was was actually pretty damn good till the cramps crept up to swung abyss. Second strikeout for greg slagging. Miss there is some heat. John gray was strike out number three pitch grounded to the right side. Puentes twos lactic. Said i it one to three again for john john gray. Get more that i'm listen. I say anything right now but that series didn't go as bad as i thought it was going to go. You could went four with no signs of hope. Instead you wanted three and were close in every game you came back and you fought game to john. Gray was sensational game. Three and then. Yesterday austin gombrich. This wasn't the guy the ugly for me. And i'm not getting into politics on this one major league baseball moving their all star game fairly short notice With again georgia's coming up with new voting rules and regulations and stuff. I don't pretend to be a political broadcaster. But no notice really. I mean it takes a long time for these places to figure out where they're going to have an all star game and doing so it's just a further furthering on our politics and sports blending together. Thirty one minutes after the hour. Colefax when we come back zach. Stevens will join us from. Dvr broncos how how does he think this team's going to be when you look at the easy schedule for denver. And he hearing anything. More as far as quarterback hype quarterback talk for the denver broncos. We'll get zack. But first let's get the latest on the local sports flash here mornings with gail days. Six to nine and northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. Former colorado buffaloes quarterback and you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten ks ks. Welcome back to the whole show powered by energy with me now on our i advantage. Hotline is zak stevens of. dnv are broncos. Zach my friend. You guys i was i was looking at this earlier i was. I was checking out your your great twenty twenty one on. Qb draft talk to us about your non draft. You personally act and how much of that was just all right. We're doing this outside of quarterbacks. Do you see denver still trying to get a quarterback like is that a top priority so kind of a kind of a double question there to start this off. We'd like to load it up on you man i love. It had no better way to start off week than with that brady. I appreciate it. And yes quarterbacks still has to be a priority for the broncos because look we all know that the position was not good enough last year and then george peyton came out and said they're going to upgrade it and they've done nothing nothing is so far. They haven't even cut jess driscoll. They've done nothing for the position yet. So it absolutely is a priority. And you're kind of running out of options. Now i mean there's reports coming out saying that if shawn watson doesn't play this year that the texans would be interested in adding alex smith. He's the only veteran on the open market that that could be a starter for you so if he goes off the board then you have to draft or you have to trade draft picks so yes. It's still very much a possibility but we did this. Non quarterback draft just to see what would happen and how many good players there are and what it did was it actually made me feel better about this draft and not the broncos picking at nine but it made me feel better if the broncos were to trade back because brady until you have a quarterback. I don't think you should really ever be trading back into you. Know get get a second round. Pick to draft a cornerback. I think it's all about the quarterback. But let's say the broncos word to trade back there's about including the five quarterbacks there's about eighteen players that i really like in this draft and i don't think there's a huge difference between the ninth best player in the stress and the eighteenth player in the draft. So what that means to me is if the broncos moved back let's say they can get one of those top eighteen players which i think can happen right around twenty because i think a team's going to reach for a player that's not one of those top eighteen guy. That's leaves the broncos with a very good player so if they don't wanna go quarterback this year and they trade back still get a very good player. Say at pick eight. I think we just lost. I think we lost our guy like we lost track. Let me know. If he's still there he was just getting into this thing. I kind of liked scenarios trading back. I've got a few of my own ideas on that for this week's deep thoughts from a wandering mind and still we still have zach zach. We lost you right around the time you were talking about Potentially trading back and what that would look like for the broncos. Yeah and if they sorry about that brings. You don't know what happened there. But if if they worked to trade back. I think it would still leave a very good player for them. And let's say they do trade back and they go from nine to eighteen and pick up a first round pick. Well then that would mean. They really have their eyes set on the quarterback market next year. If drew doesn't pan out that's what's interesting to me is the potential of next year. If you're j- again. I think george payton has just done. You talked about this. He's done such a good job of saying the exact right things. He's not really putting himself in too much of a corner. yes he saying. We want to upgrade at that position but it wasn't an overwhelming you know. We're we're done withdrew at this stage so it does lead me to believe that. Maybe there's some other scheming going on for next year. That being said you have you have najji harris on your list and i do too. I think that there's a way. The broncos can get their cake to where they could get. If you don't get a quarterback maybe you get one of those big needs inside linebacker eve corner because again we're at some point never still going to need a corner myth not this season for sure next season. And if you do trade back to you acquire other round pick kind of like what. The broncos did end up getting done. Riser andrew lock and maybe a nausea harris could be a guy in that mix okay. You're selling me a little bit on grading we need to talk to you. Here is joined the broncos. I especially in a scenario where he's not your first pick just like you said he's your dalton reisner of addition and your drew lock type of addition to that draft nausea hairs absolute baller profile similar to derrick henry. Not just coming from alabama being a huge guy with tons of speed with great vision and the the additional thing is he excellent out of the backfield as a receiver that would be a huge dynamic and yes the broncos are paying dollars. Melvin gordon this year but this is the final year of his deal. So you'd be getting A number a second number one running back this year and then you'd really be getting your your workhorse for the next many years. And if you can get that in a second round just the same derrick. Henry went in the second round. That would be an absolute steel. And you know what. I could even see it happening in the first round. But here's how it would happen. The broncos trade back from nine to. Let's say twenty for a team that wanted to jump up for a quarterback they get a first-round pick and then the broncos traded back from twenty two. Let's say twenty eight and pick up a second round pick or something like that. And then they use that first round pick on najji harris and then george payton does something that he absolutely loves to do. And that's draft accumulation. He says he's love doing that. And and he's done it throughout his whole career and men if you can do that and still had a great player like najji harris man. You'd be making it out. Like a bandit wanna think is so interesting about this and i have changed over the years to zach where i've always thought if you get a top ten you have to take that you have to stay in your top ten but i mean how often in this day and age in the nfl. We see guys in the top. Ten top twenty guys you know. They play in the nfl for a while. They're all right. There's certainly a handful that does great things but we could see almost as many in the second and third round. Go on to do great things. So in that regard do kind of like the idea of just accumulating a ton picks. I'm i'll admit i've changed even in the past five years on that on that thinking and i've really changed in the past forty eight hours on my i would. I would never advocate for trading. But i just see it being a pretty good spot for the broncos. Do a very realistic spot for the broncos to do it. No one has any idea what. George peyton thinks that these quarterbacks and so i i have to start off every conversation about trading back by saying if it's not for if they're not gonna get a quarterback in the first round and george already has his mind made up then trading back make some sense and also we're the broncos sit right now in terms of how the draft board could fall to them at nine. It isn't the best actually because the top players that could be there are wide receiver. You certainly don't need a wide receiver cornerback for this year. You don't need a cornerback and offensive tackle and you can make a case that the broncos should go out and get the right. Tackle the few right now and i'm all for that but you are paying john james. You know seventeen million this year so you're probably going to roll with him for this year and just the way that falls. If you're going to go with one of those positions you might as well trade back. Because they're all position pick up extra picks and still get a very good player just ten spots back. No i'm with you on the whole najah harassed thing to Again his ability to catch out of the backfield and melvin gordon. he. I mean there's two things working against him. He got one year left plus. He's not he's not really at. Is he a top tier running back anymore. Is he just barely on the outside of that stage. So i mean. He put together an ice second of the season. So i like that. But in your experience so far just kind of following around george pain seeing. What are you hearing. What he's saying reading between the lines see what he does and free agency. How aggressive do you think he's really gonna get and trying to move up that ladder and snatch one of the top three guys. As far as quarterbacks go it breaks my heart to say. But i don't think we're going to see that this year as much as i want to see it one of the things that i've been told right after george payton retired and have been continued to be told behind the scenes that george is really going to take a step back. See how things unfold this year. Get a feeling of everything going on in the building. And that's exactly what we've seen and that doesn't mean he's not gonna make moves. No he just went out and signed kyle fuller. He's built a very good deep. Were this year but in terms of big decisions he didn't move on for many coaches. He didn't move on from any scouting department numbers. He hasn't done a single thing in terms of big changes and quarterback is also one of those big things that's a big change and also draft moving up in the draft and sacrificing a couple of first round. Picks in that process do that. That is a huge change. So that's why. I don't expect any big moves to come there. You're right about the moves he kyle fuller. These are like groundbreaking moves. These nice moves. That kinda makes sense for now. You kept your guy and justin simmons. You're going to see what the future looks like. Of course with kareem jackson after after next season. But i didn't look at any of these moves going all right. These are moves that say. Hey we're a step away. We just need to patch this defense up now. I looked at it more more or less. Like hey kyle fuller's available jackson not going anywhere. We can get him for steel. We'll just we'll just tie those up and we'll see maybe i mean even with those little moves. This defense looks damn good. Yeah you're exactly right and on top of that. You paid counselor for one year. That's not a commitment at all paid ronald darby. Yeah you signed him up for three years but only twenty million dollars guaranteed and only ten million dollars a year. That is not a big commitment in today's nfl. Heck i mean you and me brady. Ten million bit commitment. You know for for a starting cornerback in the league. That's not really big money and you know he did. Give big money to justin simmons. Justin simmons is one of the best safeties in the nfl. Do these aren't groundbreaking moves just like you said i mean he. He hasn't he wasn't willing to make a a blockbuster deal with the lions for matthew stafford he was willing to give up a first round. Pick for matthew stafford but when you think about it. A first round pick for for for starting franchise quarterback is not that blockbuster of the deal once it got to that where we're talking to first round picks like the rams game. He backed out because he wasn't ready to make a big time Zak stevens joining us. From denver broncos act one more for you. Well actually i have two more for. What do you think about this to shawn watson situation. It's been a very strange story. Kanter ramps up. We hear a lot and then it goes away then it ramps up and then it goes away is gonna play football next year. Yeah it certainly does not look like that. And i know a lot of people want this to be resolved before the draft. And that's certainly not going to happen. There's not going to be clarity there. The next big thing. That just happened was The the houston police department getting involved. I believe that happened on friday. Not as big time news right there. That means that this thing is not going away anytime soon and brady the way i see it. I don't see him playing football this year. And i i wouldn't be shocked if right around when ta start which is april nineteenth just two weeks from now if the nfl decides to put him on. The commissioner's exempt list to kind of. Take him out of the equation for everyone. Just so that that. There's nothing going on with him and turns at the nfl standpoint with him. It's it's like you said. I mean it's a it's a terrible situation and it's also just unfolded in the weirdest way possible. What a bizarre situation. And of course i mean. It doesn't look like it's getting any any the pictures not getting any clearer so to speak so certainly follow along with that and we'll see what happens. Ac final one for you to have another draft hasn't happened yet but you saw the schedule. It's a pretty easy schedule for the broncos before the draft. We got a lot of work to do still with this team. But how many wins do you see just based on what you know right now especially with the seventeen game schedule. Are you ready to say nine and eight ten seven. I mean the those are just weird numbers to say. But i'll stick with those numbers right now But a huge huge huge gastric along with that. I think this team can be a playoff team. The way they're built right now if they get average play from their quarterbacks and whoever that may be and right now if it's drew i can't say that that i see that just because haven't seen that average clay on a consistent basis so if they do roll withdrew. We're talking about an upgrade from last year because this team's going to be healthier and better so seven and ten eight and nine potentially but if they just get average clay that's all they have to get from the quarterback position. they'll be in the playoff. Yeah no i think i. I'm with you there. It all depends under lock. Because i love the defense. I really liked the offensive weapons. I think another year under drew's bell with all of these weapons might bode well but again. That's the big if he can at least be average which you know. I don't think that's too tall task. But for some quarterbacks it might be zach always appreciate your insight my friend and we're getting closer. We're almost there. I can't wait. We are almost at broncos. Are back doing meetings in two weeks the draft in three. I can't wait to roll if you brady. a friend. always appreciate his ex divas. Dvr broncos nobody better in my opinion love the work that he does nine minutes until the top of the hour. We're gonna take a short break when we come back more on the denver nuggets more on the more on the game tonight man. This should be a blast of a games minus four and a half zags at this stage so we shall see. It's the whole show powered by energy. Were live from the article asian specialist. We'll be right back volleyball in baseball coming to preps broadcast near you and northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi k it's a party northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi am a block party wednesdays from ten pm steve fairchild at fairchild qb training dot com and you are listening to the whole show on thirteen ten kfi back to the show. Tell you guys about seal mortgage interest rates getting higher. But they're still very very low so now is still a wonderful time to get rid of any consumer debt that you have car loans credit cards student loans. That interest rate is not tax deductible in your house payment is that's seal mortgage. Find them at my special mortgage dot. Com text. line is nine seven. Four seven eight thirteen o. One if you're new to the show text. Kfi am to that number nine. Seven four seven eight thirteen o. One think about drew lock for a moment if he can survive this he keeps surviving all the hits right. You know the first one was shawn watson. Aren't that's going to happen. Denver landing spot looks like it's denver. The broncos are willing to maybe the broncos are willing to throw it all out there for sean and fat means by by drew. Lock well whether it was going to happen or not. I wasn't convinced that denver would trade for the sean Either way but then you get this story so no no way. No way it's happening. I don't even know if sean plays football again. I i don't know. I innocent until proven guilty for sure but this story is now now. Has the police involved. It's going nowhere for this story. This this situation is not going. Go anywhere for a while shawn watson not playing next year so that takes it out. Drew lock survived that then then you go to free agency period. Okay are the broncos are going to go get a guy like fitzpatrick or you know. There's a lot of free agents out. They're going to grow andy dalton's out there Trubisky's out there trubisky didn't want to come to denver. He wanted to go a backup to josh allen. I i didn't think the broncos were overly interested in them either way but that was a weird move. I thought it was going to be a guy like trubisky come here and compete for a job. Instead he's going to go. Hold a clipboard for josh allen. So denver didn't make a move. There drew lock survives round to free agency. Will he survive round three the nfl draft if he survives the draft. He's gonna be. The denver broncos starting quarterback next year. That's a big if though he still might be even if he doesn't survive the draft and draft a quarterback at number nine because they'll open up the competition and they might leave that young guy behind him. I don't see why they would. You know go for broke stage. You like your defense and if you think that One of these quarterbacks is a game changer then put him in early. Because you have a lot of one year contracts. I don't see it happening. I i mean justin fields as appealing to me. I no question but the price. I don't think it's there and george payton. Listen i'm going to warn you. Broncos country george payton's not gonna make the sexy moves on draft you if you were upset about denver move number ten to go back into twenty two years ago. Get ready because it's probably going to happen again. Don't forget we'll have ed. Mccaffrey coming up in the second hour. Unc bears football coach. Scrimmage last week springs looking like they opted out of playing any games for spring. We'll talk more about that. Decision dill mccaffrey. We won't see him until get into fall practices because he's still has to finish up with michigan as far as graduation and such. But we're looking forward to a great conversation with him. The whole show powered by pvc energy. We'll be right back.

September 7 Hour 1 Bears / Buffs Recap | Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos

"Five minutes after the hour good afternoon northern colorado. This is the whole show powered by energy live from the auto collision specialists studios. First event is text lines nine seven four seven eight. Thirteen o one. What a weekend. It was For for this for this. I mean for all football for the local teams that we follow throughout the course of the season. It's good to get this week. Started off on the right foot Well kind of depends on if you're a buffs fan bears fan or rams fan. If you're rams fan you have officially pressed the the panic button if you were a bears fan you have. I think you feel pretty good about yourself. You know at this point you you gotta be able to put on a decent showing and ultimately this. Is you know this. They've covered the spread. I mean they lose thirty five to seven. I was at the game. Certainly didn't feel like a thirty thirty five seven loss. It was zero to zero at the end of one. It was still zero zero. Midway through the second quarter i was going back and forth with jerry schimmel the day after and i was like it really felt like the momentum was just zapped sucked out of the lives of the unc bears. There was a drive with midway through the second quarter where there was a special teams penalty. Return for cu goes out of bounds of a hit out of bounds. And then they the the buffs continue to drive but then the bears buckled down. Get a stop or what appears to be a stop. Third like sixteen and brendan lewis rolls out to the right steps out of balance. And he's hit again so too late hit penalties basically set up that i score for c. You and they go up seven. Nothing they get the fort. The they get another touchdown to end the half they go up fourteen. Nothing i think it was twenty one. Nothing and then. The bears got their first touchdown. So i mean listen. Thirty five seven. It doesn't look great on paper. I get that. But i mean come on you got the. I'm seeing a lot of denver. Me did you were you as at this freaking game. Where were you guys watching. Replays of super bowl. Fifty for the broncos my goodness stomping of the bears. Unless you guys know me. I'm not a homer. I know of the voice to the bears. But i saw what i saw. This team was hanging in there for the most part and there are a lot of good things to take away from it. Let's get into all that unpack it. Let's get to the good the bad and the ugly all the good for me again. Good the bad presented by fm bank banking. Made simple good for me. I'm a big dylan mccaffrey. Fan he's an awesome guy. We'll getting to know him getting probably going to be working with him pretty soon. Here on this show. I was impressed. He ended the day twenty. Four forty two. Two hundred thirty six yards one touchdown and one pick africa shouting out signals. He gets the snap back. The nineties pressured. He gets of the pressure. He fires now feel wide open. Talks at the fifteen yard line and up to the thirty two yard line. A great catch run on the reception. What's jordan nap key. That is a gain. It is a first down for the bears. Mccaffrey back in that shotgun. Three wide receivers left tied into the right gets the snap drops back about the twenty four yard line. Finds man opened the open field. The forty yard line that across the forty five forty six another first down cassidy woods the reception. Second first time for the bears. Dan i possession. I'm in the The visiting section right. I'm there with a bunch of unc. Bears fans dude. There was a buzz. There was belief. It was really fun. That berry i drive. Unc looked like they could do no wrong. I also wanted to add in the defensive line for the bears. They were getting that initial push and jerk. Broussard ended with ninety four yards and listen. They ended two hundred eighty one yards rushing. Seems like a heck of alive. But that's all they did. That's all they did was run. The football brennan lewis threw for one hundred yards so could have been worse. I walked away feeling pretty good for bears. And honestly i feel pretty good for carlos buffs and i'll talk about more than detail. Let's get to the bad. How about headlines colefax again. Were you at the game. What's your name sean. Keeler of the denver post cu buffs. Run wild stomp. Unc bears coach. Ed mccaffrey in season opener. No no i think even even coach mcafee. Hey they thought we were losing by sixty or whatever fourteen. Nothing at the half. And i know it's not moral victories but it's big sky. I pack twelve data stomping thirty five to seven covered the spread by ten points. That's the stomping. Okay well get to know you watch that game or did you just look at the scoreboard. The ugly and it was ugly. Colorado state losing to south dakota state forty two to twenty three out of four. I davis is the deep flip And that is the good. The bad the ugly presented by fms bank banking made simple. Brady my first time. Sportsbook bet didn't go. Well no regrets like the enthusiasm and fortitude from. Unc you were there did see you call off the dogs or did they have issues. Both i do not. And i'm going to say this to be fair about the buffs. I don't think the buffs gave the bears. Everything in their arsenal. Does that mean they would have done better. Not necessarily i think the buffs came at this with a very basic approach because they gotta play texas a. m. this weekend at empower sports field. High invesco elway broncos so. I'm not saying that as an excuse as to why you would see hung in there. See you should be a good enough team. Where if they wanna just jerick broussard's you to death. They should be able to do that. And again they had the numbers. The rushing numbers didn't seem that real though because i thought the bears really held up. It was win. They tried to go left. And right side of the field on offense for you and see that i thought okay. That's a weakness because see you just so fast. They're just so fast and getting on the outside but So to answer your question did you call off the dogs. Could they have ran down that last possession and try to get a score and cover the spread. Maybe but that two minutes left. So i would say they didn't. It's not called off the dogs. They more or less. They weren't pulling out all the stops. They weren't opening up that playbook past like page five or six now again. If they do that too they take more chances downfield. Do they take more passing chances and ended up throwing interceptions and getting more sacks and fumble maybe so because they're always there's a give and take on that people can say well. They didn't open up their whole playbook. Sometimes you don't want to for for several reasons you don't wanna show texas a and a whole heck of a lot plus you think you're good enough to beat this team. Without taking a lot of chances. Brennan lewis was efficient. He was ten fifteen hundred yards. Only one hundred yards though. They weren't throwing the ball. He's averaging six yards a throw. They ran the football jerick. Broussard got it for fifteen carries for ninety four yards. You again could be see you this year. I actually think if you and i know you guys are gonna say. I'm like the official northern colorado slash boulder homer. I think you walk away from that game going. The bears held their own for for a while. The buffs won decisively. So there's actually a way to walk away from this game and say both of those teams got what they wanted. Did the buffs wanna win by more and cover the spread. Sure did fans wanna do that. Shore by me fans. Were there celebrating like you. Guys just won the super bowl. My goodness i was like i mean it's an fc team that kind of had you on the ropes there for a moment. If you're the bears. Did you want to get to the point where you know. Bobby want to win the game. But bears fans. You would've liked touchdown. And they were driving. They were driving. Dillon throws an interception kind of in the back of the zone late. I was really impressed with dylan though this offensive line they held up. Okay it wasn't. They weren't Extremely awesome in this one. They held up. Okay cassidy woods four receptions for eighty eight yards. He had the touchdown he looked. Awesome i was i was. I was talking to coach a little bit. This chattanooga a couple of best friends and he said he's like think about this dude dude Dawn and true wilson the running back. They hadn't played a full game in five years a full game in five years. Now dylan's come in substituted and in their true wilson kind of the same thing but an put a full game like that in five years. So i mean again you can throw out excuses to. Nobody's making excuses. Unc knows what happened. Hey they thirty five to seven. There are certainly things you can take away from this game though and say could. Unc have a good year. And then of course you look at the scores in the big sky conference and it was. I would say. I would say the big sky looked pretty good this weekend. Montana beating washington. Where have you checked on done. A michael check colfax right back there because that's his team. That's his pac twelve sweetheart team you know. And they They kinda got punched in the mouth by By a by an f. b. r. fc team. I would tell you looking at the scores for the big sky. We were state played utah. They were in that game until how about the half. It was forty seventeen. you'd use. Uc davis tulsa eastern washington a mountain west team and unlv. Thirty five to thirty three montana washington. Thirteen to seven. North dakota bead idaho state thirty five to fourteen montana state only lost to wyoming our friends up here to the north by three cal. Poly san diego sacramento dixie state. Okay portland state lost to hawaii mouse team. But it was forty nine to thirty five again. I think if you're a big sky fan you're looking at this going great for you and see. They didn't get torch tdap bad by see you but the big sky looks pretty damn good seventeen minutes after the hour. We're gonna take a short break when we come back more on this the aftermath we were off yesterday because of of labor day. But we're here. Ready to rock and roll. We'll talk a little broncos. Let's get that first glance. Oh by the way. It's game week. For the broncos giants regular season game on sunday. And its top text. Tuesday and i think we got some calm in store offering fresh coat. Painters of south platte. So we'll confirm that in just a moment seventeen minutes after the hour. It's the whole show powered by the energy. Live from the article asian specialist studios for all things rams football tune into rams weekly thursday night said five another in colorado's voice one zero three point one and thirteen ten kfi k. Prep sports in the unc. Bears are northern colorado's voice. One old three point one in thirteen ten kfi k. isn't nico baccio former you. Ram current pro basketball player. And you're listening to the whole show with my good friend brady hall last week. Was our our game week edition so to speak going into the college football scene and now we are rolling. We get Broncos giants starting up on sunday. I am so ready aia pumped. I'm ready to rock and roll joining us now from. Dnv broncos are broncos insiders. Zak stevens man. Are we ready for this. It's finally here regular season. I mean we're we're only two days away from actual regular season game and then a few away from from the broncos giants now. I can't wait for at all radio. I mean college weekend was fantastic this past week and now we get a double dose of college and the nfl like you said. I'm even pumped watch. Tom brady on thursday night. I'm just ready for football. Be back to let see those buccaneers and cowboys with. I think dak prescott. That's been a strange. But i'm guessing he's going to be ready to go but let's let's get into this one here. This giants teams interesting. Zach it on the fact that the daniel jones is entering his third year. They're kind of at a point. Where i mean maybe where we would have been with drew. Lock this year if he would have been the starter. But they're at a point where hey it's put up or shut up time for daniel jones. Yeah i mean. Nazis jones kind of that entire organization With their head coach with daniel jones also saquon we know when saquon healthy type of talent he can be but he's doing pretty big contract coming up so he needs to also show that he's more of that guy that he was early in his career And is able to successfully come back from that injury. But you're absolutely right about daniel jones. This is a guy who has flashed. His talent is more athletic than people think but also he is a turnover machine and that is something that the broncos should absolutely capitalize on this week. And it's not just interceptions. He does throw interceptions. But it's not like he leads the league and throwing interceptions. He's the guy that's really sloppy with the ball in the pocket and when he takes off to run which is quite often so like. How much pressure is there. I mean again. You're looking at september vic. Fangio is not one in september. You look at this giants team. They're hungry. They're hungry for a win. And maybe this division is going to be improved. But i mean the first three weeks. We've got to be talking some some crazy pressure on vic fangio. Oh under pressure you had to ride on the head. I vic is to get his first win in september and then after that not just settle for that but they have to have a winning record after the month of september. They have to be at least two on one anything else in brady. You're starting to think. oh boy. This season is already over before we get into october. Let alone halloween november and december. But what's interesting. And i and i think you kind of touched on it. Would all of these teams that. The broncos are playing. They're saying the same thing about the bronco. This is one of the easiest games on the schedule for us. Now broncos are loaded with talent. But you can't really disagree with those teams when they look at the broncos and see a five and eleven team last year so this is something where the broncos need to come out and get these easy wins because there is no easy win in the nfl but they're certainly easier games and after this it gets much more difficult so all right worst case scenario will be. Oh in three if he's one in two and september are we. What are we doing here. Are we let vic play this out because looking at the schedule it doesn't. It doesn't get that much easier instantly. There's i think a baltimore game in that mix browns game. That makes steelers game there. Then he's starting to division play. I mean is there a chance a realistic chance. That if you go in the first three or maybe just one and two does vic fangio stick around you know. I really think george payton is going to give the benefit of the doubt to vic as much as possible. So i think he'll he'll let it play past owen three or one and two. But then grady. I mean there's only so long that george payton can allow this thing to go in that sort of direction if it happens that way without then his credibility being put on the line so i think it unless a major change of events were to happen in the next three games and like you said those are three very difficult game then. That's when i see a move being made maybe right after that cleveland game. Since that's the thursday night game you kind of have ten days. That's about the earliest icy something happening. Even if its way off the tracks that's going to be again Nothing like must see. Really for the broncos i know broncos giants select the sexiest matchup in the history of the world. But because of what this could mean because of vic fangio's record in september every game we're going to be magnifying. It and and you know what we're really not gonna walk away satisfied unless there's a w next to one of those three to all of those three games. Well and on top of that breezy Let let's say the broncos come out and lose against the giants boy you have another east coast road game against a bad team. But what if. Trevor lawrence impact wilson. Look good this week then. You don't really see them as terrible teams anymore. You see them as guys as teams with the number one and number two overall pick now it could. It could be the opposite. The broncos could come out they could shut they kwame barkley down. They could get three turnovers off. Daniel jones and trevor lawrence wilson struggle in their first game in. You're saying there's legitimate shot at free annot put the the worst case scenario that we could be talking about in one week from now is pretty daunting talking to zach. Stevens of dean. Vr broncos. and i mean there's a lot of storyline surrounding this team. And obviously we talked about one of the big ones and that's vic fangio and his immediate future will look like if they struggle in those first few weeks of the season But but there's some other ones that were really interested. Obviously the quarterback situation. We've we've turned the page for better or worse work were riding with teddy There's a lot at stake for him. I mean this is kind of that. I don't know fourth chance fitch sense for him to to come out and prove hey. I can be as consistent starting quarterback. I can be a leader of a team. So i mean that's going to be an interesting one to watch. Yeah in petty really wasn't going to get another chance to start this year. After how winning carolina last year and carolina tried to dump him but he got he won the job so he wasn't even given the job one job and brady if he struggles this year will then he's going to be looking at You know more of a career backup type role however if he does well this year. Maybe it from the broncos. Maybe it's from someone else just like carolina did with him Last year he could be looking at a four year. Eighty million dollar contract to four year hundred million dollar contracts so to say a lot is on the line. Brady is an understatement for teddy. Now he's certainly will have a job next year regardless of if it's n. denver but the the price difference could be you know eight million compared to twenty five thirty million well and as much as we've talked about. Hey the broncos one to work out with drew lock because he's young drafted him on all that i mean they're not gonna hate it if it works out for teddy bridgewater if teddy comes out and plays above average football. Maybe a little better than that even and you're winning games and you get into the playoffs then the my whole argument of hey well now. You're drafted in the twenty. It won't matter because if you believe that teddy can be the guy to run the show with this group that you have with these wide receivers. You've assembled that o. Line and devante williams going forward. Then i mean that covers you. You don't have to worry about it for the next couple of years on of the brady vic. Fangio carrying about the broncos future in five or ten years. He's not so. I think he would absolutely be okay rolling with teddy bridgewater especially if he does well this year and he doesn't want to turn to a young guy and have to go through those growing pains again especially knowing that he's not on the first year of deal like george payton as he he has to win right now especially just just beyond this year as well. He needs to win It because he's been given kinda that grace period now And george payton. Also it's he has a lotta times but teddy bridgewater. It's not just the three agent he brought in teddy bridgewater was his first round draft. Pick when he was with the viking so he has plenty of reason to fall in love with teddy and stick with him enroll with them And so you're absolutely right. This is something that we could be looking at as a more more of a longterm option for the broncos if it works out. Yeah that's another one that. I'm really just intrigued by like i said i i was in the drew lock camp. I'll admit i i'm. I'm a drew drew. Lock guys ac. And now i'm over it. I'm trying to turn the page. And now i'm extremely interested because this is a story line. And if you're broncos fan you're rooting for him to prove that he could be the guy for the next couple of years. The other one that has me is the running. Back situation zach. Melvin gordon admitted that the philip linzie thing last year khanna bugged. You know you got philip lindsey. Who was a fan favorite. And it certainly. Fans were wanting philip lindsey to take that role and be the number one. There was debates about. It will now going forward devante waves. He's got a homegrown kid but he's a rookie and he showed us a lot in the preseason. Is this the same old story. Just a different cast. You hope not you hope that these two can coexist together and not really because last year. It really was the philip lindy show for one game when he went out and dominated In new england and then at the second half of the season it was melvin gordon. It was his show. We never really got to see a good. Melvin gordon philip lindsey combo together and that's something that we really hope to see here we hope it's not just one guy one week one guy the next week because that's probably not going to play out very well over a seventeen game season brady. It's going to be more like last year. Where one guy has one good week and the other guy has six good weeks. You hope that these guys can play off each other but an interesting thing yesterday vic fangio set that. Get that Devante williams has earned the coaches trust so much that they're willing to put him in at any point of the game at any time in any situation just really shows you how much trust they truly have and so two follow ups there on that side of it first off his melva going to be really reluctant to wanna come out then because devante comes in and who knows i mean he makes a couple of crazy plays and maybe we get the nod to him and he starts getting the majority of the carries. Yeah and on. Top of melvin is on a contract year right now so where whereas last year splitting the carries wasn't as big of a deal in terms of contract. This is. this is a big deal to him. Now you can feel like you're taking money out of his pocket and he knows the situation that he's put in right now he knows that he's the starter for now and that. This young guy is clearly the future. And that's the thing is can gordon's kind of an. I guess kind of a similar position as teddy didn't necessarily have to fight for his position but if he can be really solid and breakout who knows thirteen hundred yard year and and really be great one two punch which to williams then maybe you could look at denver saying hey we're gonna we're gonna bring him back for another year or two so i mean certainly interesting to see what happens on the running back side of things. zach talk to us about that right tackle position. What's it look like. They're bobby massie has a fish. -cially one that job Now he didn't vic fangio. And i believe it when he said this. When he's talked about the quarterback position he says we have two guys that we believe we can play with andrew and petty and win games with now. He said that same thing about the right. Tackle position with body mass. The and calvin anderson. And i really believe him when he said that. About colvin anderson they gave calvin They were so impressed. They let this competition go all the way up until now now bob had kind of had it locked up for about the past ten days but they just were so impressed with calvin anderson and that's something cows is able to continue to develop this year. Then maybe we're not talking about resigning. Bobby massey or going in the early in the draft to get a right tackle. The broncos may have the right tackle future on their roster right now. With calvin anderson zak stevens joining us from dnv. Our broncos broncos giants regular season game one coming up on sunday where we're getting ever so close to this opening game. It's a big one has a lot to it. As far as vic fangio and the pressure let slide over to the defense i. I've let's look at the injuries. What's the status on bradley. Chubb starting just some of the tweets have been seen of yours and install other stuff kind of out. There is going to be a full go on sunday. You know a forego is too much for me to say right now. I'm not going to go that far. trump missed. All of last week of practice was back on the practice field and what seemed to be a very limited role yesterday and after practice when asked if noah fan and bradley will be ready to go for the game vick said he thinks so so me. I have guarded optimism about these guys being able to play. I do think they will end up playing. But brady i think you nailed it on the head. I don't think they're going to be full. Go and i think they're snaps are going to be limited and to me. You need both of those guys out there. You want to see both those guys out there but brady if they're not ready to go then don't have a play and you just hope that the jonathan coopers and alberto's are ready to go and step up for these guys for this game but the worst thing that could happen is you try to force these guys back on the field for week one because you feel the pressure of how important these first three games are and then one of them tweaks it again and then they're out a month or two. You can't have that no question about it. You got to well. I guess fans do kind of worry about maybe vic fangio not saying he would put anybody knowingly in harm's way but maybe there is a little pressure for the now the wind now as opposed to okay. What's the long term plan because vic knows. Hey if i'm in three somehow some way to start these things how boy that seat is on fire. He can't even sit down on the hot seat. Brady doesn't doesn't. This really reminds us of the quarterback conversation that we had been fangio was all about the now whereas fans and maybe people within the organization thought it should be about the future. We'll yeah and i was reading something that just kinda doing some early game previews and everything on the giants side of it. I'm not trying to send the giants are a team. You should compare or anything but they they're saying. Hey our big philosophies yes we wanna get better this year. That's the goal. No question about it but we can't sacrifice this year for next year to there's a lot of pressure to get it done but we have to be careful with guys like barkley. We can't force them out if he's not feeling up to snuff. So i mean you look at that and i just feel i guess i just feel like the broncos that message is kind of lost it used to be elway. Hey we're competing for championship every year. Then it became a well. We're just trying to get this thing right. It's not a rebuild but it is revealed but might be rebuilt. Now it's like george payton's building for the future vic fangio's plan for the now. Yep exactly and george peyton says what what his goal is for. This season is to be relevant in november and december. Well that's pretty much. That's very wide open and vic fangio is all about this next week. Just getting the win and you're so right i. It's a very awkward year. Just to be honest when you have a new. Gm on a six year contract. He knows he's going to be here for a long time. And you kind of have this coach that just like you said brady. And just a couple of weeks on the hottest of hotseat weird dynamic. Yeah no question about it man. It's it's strange to me. I i question all of it back. Then you know with elway the timing of him stepping down with the ownership situation up in the air but here we are nonetheless. Like i said. I can't complain anymore about the quarterback situation or the vic fangio higher from several years ago. This is where we are now. And you know what zach. I'm thinking this team wins. The first three games and puts a lot of fans minds at ease. Oh boy we would all need that brady because then everyone is going to get behind teddy bridgewater at least for the short term and then the broncos have a great opportunity to really get big time support by playing the baltimore ravens at home if they dropped back games still three in one. Go out and beat pittsburgh. Your foreign one and people outside of colorado are starting to talk about you. It's finally time right. You're just do desperate for that. If not things are going to get. Things are going to get roth. they're gonna get messy very fast equity working on man then we can check out in the next couple of days man. Lots of stuff just lead to the game brady. It's it's came weak and i am so pumped so we'll have a lot of A lot of game or game and season preview seeing. Just how the broncos season's going to shake out. I'm looking forward to the giants have some wide receivers. You know getting golladay of course sterling shepard. They picked up. Karl rudolf to i mean they have some weapons can go to. I mean i loved their devante booker pickup to to help with barclay. That guy. i'm still not giving up on that guy. I think he could still be a decent back. Yeah i mean. The prompt goes shirts certainly shouldn't be given up on him. Considering what devante booker did to him or to them last year. So that is a guy where i think. A lot of broncos fans kinda laugh when they see that that he's going to be the guy plan and saquon spot of saquon not able to be one hundred percent but last time he was the one laughing after the game. We'll see what happens this sunday. We'll be looking forward to more and more previous from you my friend and We'll catch up with you soon right on. Brady can't wait all right zach stevens. Dnv our broncos as kind of the the first taste right of what this regular season games going to look like. We'll get into full on previews for all things broncos giants.

See your unc. Bears all season long courtesy of fresco painters of south platte. So load up the text. I'm going to get to him. I got a lot to read but first let's get out of here. Get the latest on the local sports flash. The good afternoon guy with brian gerry weekday afternoons at three on northern colorado's voice one of three point one in thirteen ten. Kfi that ahmad is with dnv are the dnb are bar and the npr nuggets podcast. And you're listening to the whole show with radio twelve forty six time. It was a strange strange opening weekend. You know overall when you're looking at local teams. There were some great games on to. So that was that was pretty exciting. but over overall you know still think what the bears. i'm. I'm really curious to see how this houston baptist game turns out because you got all this buildup for unc right. I there's this all this buildup. All this hype. Well the hypes not gonna surround. This one as much is going to be hot down there too. So we'll see how the bears respond ultimately but it was It was a fun week. Man i mean it was a fun opening week again. I know we had games Two weeks ago but it was a fun overall opening week just to see these games rock and roll i venice text line Four seven eight nine seven four seven eight thirteen one nine seven four seven eight thirteen one. It is top techs tuesday today today. Only we're not in our regular best you get your three wins competition. We are going to give a pair of season tickets away to the best text. Texter of the day to go see the. Unc bears coach. Mccaffrey mccaffrey everybody for the rest of the home season. So we'll get into that more. Let's read some text errands assists. Cu starters played most of the game. Bears made some mistakes that gave up scores and cost points. Should have been thirty five. Twenty one i don't i don't really play. The should have been thirty. Five twenty one. Because he's still got to score the touchdown. You still got a. I don't really play that. I will give you this when they should have had them stopped when he was like third and fifteen or whatever in that mid second quarter and it should have still been zero zero odd. Give you that one. I don't like to play the well. If the bears don't throw an interception they score a touchdown they did throw. An interception did thrown interception. So i i don't like to play that one as much it was just. It was thirty five to seven. And yeah you could make a case that if felt closer. But i don't like to pretend to put points on the board i just. That's not my style on that one Yeah maybe it was on that one. I might give you that one. Let's see pillow fight. Dan coccia zero. Ain't it read that joe. Parker i read that joe parker wanted someone else. But joyce mcconnell didn't sign off interesting true which means the future is bleak. Well i mean he was the fourth option folks. You had other options that you were going to go with it. Just so happened that they all had some skeletons in their closet. Since joe parker was preaching that they were going to get guys that that had strong character they. They went in a different direction than low ball. Jan the drama play out with the colorado and not adagio any pretty right now It's just it's it's a tough spot and other texture had multiple very diehard ramp fans. Say that they aren't going to renew season tickets until the product improves. And that's coming from people. I never thought. I'd hear from because eventually you get to the point where you just say enough's enough and this is the product i mean. I you can sit here all day and tell me well. That's really good. Fc team it's an fcs team. If you're if you're that point. I mean to see you expect to lose right now. Just where they are right now because they've gone. They've made an improvement. They went to the alamo bowl last year. Karl rove is as raise the bar raise expectations. We'll see what happens against 'em but right now see you expect to be unc. They expect to be south dakota state. Here's a question for you would. Unc beat sea issue. If they would've played on friday night if that would've been the game on friday night and he's out to go to stay top. Fcs unc's probably i mean according to the preseason rankings near the bottom but i thought you see looked pretty good dixon says zack's got me pumped eleven six. Maybe it's happening going three and out to start out the gates man but let's go get rolling. Put the mortgage on it. Don't really do that. The ninety seven is this. The coach is this is this. This is the wrestlemainia coach. Oh yes we love coach coach route. Gotta give the we gotta get that nickname in there. shoutout to md bet mgm. Do you want my Do you want my money this past weekend.

B.I.G. Interview | Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos on Roster Moves and Jackson Resigning

"Sustained fairchild at fairchild qb training dot com and you are listening to the whole show on thirteen ten kfi k thirty nine minutes after the hour. Welcome back to the show. Well our power to play sports. Poll question of the day did have safety. In which position would you like to see the broncos draft at number nine inside linebacker quarterback or safety well every single day. Almost it seems like a position of need gets eliminated and another one just did because kareem jackson signing back with the denver broncos zak stevens of dvr broncos joining us. now zac. We were offer a few days of the march madness and the broncos are like a completely different team since thursday. The yes they are brady. The broncos are having a little march madness of their own with the tournament. Got rolling on saturday george. Bayton goes out signs all pro. Cornerback kyle fuller than today goes. And as all pro safety kareem jackson and the incredible thing one of these guys potentially could have got fourteen and a half million dollars combined or ju just themselves on the open market. Wouldn't have been surprised to see kyle fuller go get that but instead george payton gets both of these guys for fourteen and a half million dollars both on one year deals but only going to cost the team fourteen and a half million dollars in fact brady just corrine. Jackson broncos would have picked up his contract option last week and kept him on the team on his original deal his cap it would have been thirteen million dollars. Now you get both of these guys for fourteen and a half or is we're getting a lot of listeners texting in about the about the one year deals you're seeing this throughout the nfl. But that's that's because the salary caps going to be moving around after this season correct exactly. Yeah and a lot of veterans especially guys that want to still cash in one more time don't want to Don't wanna take take a discount for multiple years now. So that's why you're seeing crean coming back for five for five million. Why you're seeing kyle fuller only signed for nine and a half million dollars because of these It's more prove it years when instead of getting a long term deal this offseason which you would typically see from a veteran with because of the covid in the salary cap going down. It's because of that interesting. all right. So kareem jackson zach. Got to be honest when they didn't pick up the option. I thought kareem was gone. Actually i was arguing on on twitter and social media about the fact. No no. he's not coming back. This is over because they're going to try to go elsewhere with money but the way george payton has done everything made it a little bit easier. Was this ever in doubt or is this kind of like shelby harris situation from last year it was exactly that it wasn't a shelby harris situation from last year and it wasn't what it was in doubt now. The broncos always kept that line of communication open but said you can go test the market. They tried to negotiate with corinne before they declined his option And tried to restructure back but kareem didn't wanna take a discount so the broncos said you know what kareem we really like you but why don't you go see what the market is like for yourself just like shelby harris. Last year he found out the market wasn't as lucrative. He knows vic fangio system he's probably going to have the most success for a one year deal in vic fangio system now getting to play adjusted simmons again and now have a pro bowl cornerback with him to pair with With bryce callahan and ronald darby. This is something where all of these guys can look really good this year and then careers. That will only help him and his value for after this season. So i'm looking at this depth chart now you locked up your safeties. We talk about the long term deal with justin simmons. But you got these cream for for the next year. You locked up your safeties. You gotta love your your corners and honestly well ronald darby. Kyle fuller bryce callahan. All top tier guys and michael. Ojemudia was a rookie. Last year made strides. So we're calling it a four quad instead of a trio. I think four back home you got back for the year bradley chubb on paper. Everything looks pretty damn good shelby harris. They're inside linebacker. Nez that now. Become the number nine. Pick for the broncos it could but the brady the broncos could also still address inside linebacker during free agency. They still have twenty seven million dollars in cap space with the way they did just deal with the way they did Darby's deal and the way. They did shelby steele. They did not eat up a lot of caps they this year i do expect them to roll over some of their twenty seven million dollars cap into next year to help with those bigger capitals that hit next year but if they want they can still go get a potential wilson. He's a linebacker who with the viking flashed. You're he's still available. Could be a coverage linebacker to help you there. And then really. You have zero holes on the defensive side and also i think the broncos could roll with alexander johnson And Josie jewel this year at inside linebacker. That wouldn't shock me. So i think now the one. That's just screaming as the number nine pick is quarterback especially because they haven't done anything this offseason To fill that hole whether it's a veteran whether it's a young guy they haven't done anything and a guy that a lot of people were looking at was marcus mariota. He's resigning And redoing his deal with the raiders. So he's off the board now to the one. I thought was interesting to last week. Trubisky going to buffalo at least for the short term but that all but says hey no he's going to be back up for year he's just going to sit back and relax and only two and a half million dollars. I was told that the broncos weren't interested in and that really shows you that the broncos were not interested in mitchell. Trubisky one of the very appealing parts about denver for four one of these top tier quarterbacks in terms of the free agent guys was that they would have an opportunity to start here. And how many other chances are they going to get to start in other places The bears apparently told andy dalton that he will be the starter there. Maybe he did not get that reassurance. From the broncos but i also was told. The broncos weren't interested. andy dalton And so that. That's a selling point for denver as you'll have a chance to play. But the broncos have not gone out and had any interest in these quarterbacks yet wow very interesting here so looking at this side of it. You're not you're not gonna get trevor. Lawrence zack wilson. You're gonna have to climb. You probably not happening there. Justin field you're going to have to do some climbing get into trey lance mack. Jones territory. What do you what do you think. Zack as far as quarterbacks. Go in that in that fields lance jones area Who do you think. Fits the broncos offense more. Well i like any of these guys. Any of the top five guys fall at nine. I say you absolutely grabbing and if you really fall in love with one of them will then you move up and get them. But i really like all five of these guys way. This broncos team is constructed right. Now in terms of their defense is ready to go. They don't have their defense locked up for five. Th this defense right now is only here for one year. Now will they extend some guys like a bradley chubb and keeps them other guys here for the long term. Yes they will. But bryce callahan's entering the final year of deal kyle fuller is entering the final. They're the only year of his deal cream jackson's entering meal near year zeal. Von miller is entering the final year of his deal as well. So this defense is ready to go right now and a tray. Lance is a guy that needs a couple of years to develop and continue his His transition to the nfl mac. John's is the most pro ready outside. Trevor lawrence of any of the five quarterback. So if you're talking about a quarterback that makes the most sense for right. Now it's mac jones mile interesting on that side. Now that's what. I could be the bait the debate to right you. You have your defense whether you do improve on the inside linebacker or not. It does look like a top five defense to me just on paper and i know we've got a long way to go. Are you better off with a guy. That's at least had experience in drew lock. Let's just talk about next year. Or if you do bring in mac jones he duke. Sit out withdrew wins the job. Who knows there's some growing pains there. Is there that thinking the process where it's like you know what if we have this amazing defense all. We have to work on with drew lock. It's just don't turn the ball over or or are they ready to turn the page. Still in that might start with draft. Yeah they're they're still going to add competition for true and that's the biggest thing is just. Don't lose the game on offense. But brady we saw too many times last year Where where drew was a turnover machine and so that's why they're going to bring competition to push in and really all. The competition has gone on the free agent market. Now what the broncos would have to do is either go to the draft and if you want legitimate competition for ju it's going to have to be in the first round or there's still. The option of trading for quarterback in the broncos aren't really in a rush to do that and other teams aren't interested to do that as well until the draft comes around And so there. There's a couple of names out there that would make a lot of sense And the one that makes the most sense in my mind especially you said it knocked turning the ball over. Is gardner minshew. This is a guy that is thirty seven to eleven picks in his career that type of ball control that you love to see and then i vic fangio would really be looking for another guy. Sam darnold now. He's had issues just as much as drew that last year with turnovers. So for me doesn't make as much sense with a high ceiling. He's only twenty three years old. You can put the pieces together to make an argument for that and then another name. That i'm hearing not the most appealing to me. But is nick foles. Oh this is This has been crazy all right so on this holding. Twenty seven million dollars in cap space sac and the broncos defense is looking pretty good. Bring them back here. Is george peyton this damn good or did it all kind of set up for this year and the real work really is going to be after the twenty twenty one season. Let's see what he does with quarterback because if he lands a quarterback that plays well this year then you gotta give them all the credit and the grades. But i mean he's really doing everything he can. Outside of the quarterback position of course quarterback is the most hard defined. But look what. George payton's doing he's sticking by his word what he told us when he took over. He's going to be aggressive but not reckless. And we've seen that play out here brady With with kareem. Jackson kareem said. No i don't wanna take. I wanna play thirteen million dollars this year and george said you know what that that little too reckless for us. We'll let you test the free agent market but we would like you back. Well they bring him back for less than half of that cost just a week after deciding to let him go And you see that with kyle fuller. The broncos could've traded a draft pick to the bears when the bears were trying to shop him but instead he sat back and said that would be reckless. I wouldn't let this guy falls to me. See if it happens well and it did. The broncos don't have to give up anything they don't have to take on the contract. They just get him for nine and a half million so being aggressive in not reckless has been so key for george peyton and what have we seen john. Elway do over this past decade. We've seen john elway be very aggressive and a lot of people would say reckless on the first day of of free agency. George peyton do that. He made one move the first day. Free agency in terms of signing guys outside his building. Yeah we'd been very patient and at least on one side of the ball. Things look pretty good equity work on my man. i know. It's like nonstop for you now pretty much since the season ended. You're just never stopping. What are you. What do you got for us available. Dvr broncos just following all these moves the george dayton's making and you know how it impacts in one of the things you said was You know this could be a top five defense. I think it at the floor is should be a top five defense. I i think this should be know top three if not the best defense in the nfl because not only are we talking about all of these pieces which includes three all pros and to pro bowlers. There i mean nearly half. Your defense is elite in terms of players. But we're also talking about vic fangio. He's one of the best defensive minds in the nfl so the this should be an extremely good defense this year. Certainly giving vic fangio at least on the defensive side of the ball. The best shot to to find success. Save his job. Zack always appreciate you. My man and hey we'll we'll we'll reach back out as soon as we maybe learn something new which could be in the next five minutes. Exactly george. Peyton making it interesting for us. Thanks brady zak stevens. Dvr broncos one of the good ones. They're okay so i'll take safety off of this. The power to play sports poll question. Go answer it at the whole dot com. What would you like to see. The broncos do at nine assuming. There's a quarterback their quarterback or inside linebacker. Mike parsons at penn. State might be there. The guy could be a game changer. So go whole showed the whole show dot com. We'll be right back listening to the hall's show powered by pd energy and thirteen ten kfi k. Brady will be back after the break.

"Will be no deaths by inches. This is the broncos daily. Putt jazzed with brandon krisztal. I want everything. I want all the meatballs and pasta. Monday broncos country so happy monday if you want teddy bridgewater bronco. Perhaps it's a happy monday. If you didn't want sam darnold to be a bronco does just broke this afternoon. That sam darnold is headed to the carolina panthers in exchange for their sixth round pick in this year's draft and then their second and fourth round pick next year. This trade of sam darnold seemed inevitable. Carolina wasn't necessarily always choice. I knew that they were going strong. After shawn watson. We knew that it had been well reported in anybody that talked anyone around. The league knew that they were going. The hardest for for watson. But with all john watson's legal troubles at this time he kind of becomes persona non grata so even if you think that he could get past all this you just can't make move until until it all gets cleared up the odds that it gets cleared up before the draft seem unlikely but if you do look at it the move still doesn't take carolina completely out of trading for him because they still hold onto their eighth pick and they've got all those pieces they've got future number one. I could even send some sam darnold as of a trade to if they wanted here for watson down the road but it just doesn't seem unlikely and not teddy. Bridgewater is almost certainly not going to be a carolina panther this year unless he works his deal completely reworked as deal for for the panthers. Odds are wherever he goes in and i think the broncos are certainly a strong candidate there may be a reworking of the deal to some degree where carolina has to eat some of that money. I brought this up here before. I know i have would be alan job but carolina some of the money and then you may be tried to negotiate with teddy to take a little less money and become a free agent after this year so rather than being under contract under team control for one more year beyond the twenty twenty one season then. He's a a true under free. Agent can find somewhere that really wants them and maybe go signed a new three year deal which we know in this day and as as this is kind of maybe living proof is only going to be a two year deal of that sixty five million dollar deal. He signed thirty. Three million was guaranteed. So he'll get his guarantee. The question is how much over that we will. He get and he basically. It broke down a little over. What twenty twenty one. Seven five year. I guess is how how you would shake it out so if you were to get most of the guarantee than what would a team that trades really have to pay out of pocket. And if it's you know that seventy nine million dollar range while that's a lot if you're the broncos you're still paying drew lock on a second round rookie deal in in year three of that four year deal and you're not trading teddy bridgewater to beat drew lock out your trading for teddy bridgewater to compete with drew lock and then to be there. If drew lock can't make the progress you were hoping would make can't take the steps forward that you were hoping that he would. And then you've got a nice roster around teddy bridgewater that maybe he just doesn't drive the train off the tracks so to speak and plenty of people throughout teddy bridgewater on twitter. Today came at me and said well. We don't want teddy bridgewater. Why not go get alex. Smith will alex. Smith may cost you more than teddy bridgewater potentially and alex smith isn't any kind of long term solution because the one thing that i guess you're not take into account is also teddy. Bridgewater could play really. Well he has yet to. I think there are more than i saw. Albright tweeted more than fifteen touchdowns in a season. Think he threw fourteen as i two in minnesota. Now he's a sixty five percent completion guy but he basically is alex smith in a lot ways. That's just who he is. And so bridgewater would come in a guy that george payton's familiar with. He was the assistant jim in minnesota when they drafted him and he saw him at his best in his young career obviously was likely there the day his knee exploded on the practice field at then to training camp in in minneapolis when they ended up creating for sam darnold and still make the playoffs because they had a good roster and so we'll see if that comes to pass you still have names garment you. Nick foles as well as alex smith out there but i don't know if any of them are far more exciting than bridgewater not that bridgewater's necessarily exciting. What's exciting is the hope that drew lock. It's it all figured out and that's something that ball clean. I'll get into here in just a little bit. Paul and actually had this conversation last week also posted as part of be happy hour and then we did it on my birthday the day got away from me and then the the week with opening day and everything else kind of got away from me as well but I've got some exciting podcast news coming That i think folks. Who'd like listening to this podcast alike. Like what i have coming for you here in Hopefully the coming weeks is the plan. So stay tuned for that. Also today the broncos decided to race season ticket prices slightly. And it's for the total package. I wrote about it on. Koa newsradio dot com kelli colorado dot com on the broncos page. There that basically all they're doing is having you incur the cost of the ninth home game this year. They're raising ticket. Prices about six percent breaks down to like five or six bucks game for most tickets. And so you also get a twenty percent broncos plus membership if you're a season ticket holder which means you can get twenty percent off all food and drink at games so if you're spending on her bucks every game which a lot of people are on food and drink for friends family. The kids you're not spending eighty so the is paid for the increased ticket. We'll we'll pay itself back by the third game that you go to if you're if you're going all nine games and i think that's probably the best way to look at is that you're you're getting value and you're paying for what you're getting. You're getting an extra home game. You're losing a preseason game so the bronx will raise your season ticket prices twice in the last five years which is a good thing. Because you don't wanna be raising them when you're losing but their season ticket retention rate is almost ninety. Nine percent is right below. It is just a shade under ninety nine percent. The waiting list is ninety. Thousand people long right now so when you look at it you say if i if i do have tickets and i don't want him some we'll snatch them up quickly This is going to be generations and generations of broncos fans that will be waiting for season tickets now. At this point we talk about ninety thousand people waiting and say a whole. What six seventy six thousand. I won't say fifty thousand or so or season ticket holders give or take and in the rest of the tickets that are available are mostly up top. If i'm not mistaken there there aren't too many tickets. Download that are available. You can still buy some club. Level tickets on a game by game basis but very few are really available for every game so if you are broncos ticket holder you already found out about this if you're not it doesn't affect you really at all. The prices of the tickets will go up slightly but you weren't paying season ticket prices. Anyway you're just paying for a game and they already did. They're dynamic pricing a few years back and they may i think tiered pricing where four of the eight games are just kind of. Hey this is what you get the raiders maybe the charges and then four premium the patriots. If the cowboys ever come to town if the packers steelers the chiefs with patrick mahomes. Those are our dynamic ticket pricing. I guess is how you look at it. So all that info those available for you through your ticket rap in an all online. So i also wanna remind you just goes if you hear this time draftking sportsbook who i partner with. If you haven't signed up yet use promo code.

Let's listen to my chat with paul again. This is part of the happy hour feature that do and rather than trimming The back and forth just giving it all to you Because that's how we roll. And i can't wait to tell you about the stuff that have gone with the podcast. So without further ado. Here's my chat with at by talkline on twitter. Paul from the gazette the esteem columnist. Who i love talking to you. Here's my child. Paul paul welcome to speak as happy hour celebrating both my birthday today and your zags winning a tuesday night. Eight elite eight game to go to the final four. So you're the perfect person. I'd been wanting to get you on any way talks and broncos hear about this quarterback search or lack thereof or whatever you make of it first things first. How about those acts back back in the final four. Not not that big of a surprise now bad right. We did it for your birthday. That's exactly that's exactly what i was. Now you've been no stranger to find a forest and you could probably find your way india into the arena there at lucas oil. Are you even gonna try to give it a shot or it's just not in the cards this year because you were there obviously in arizona when they went and you've gone plenty of times when when you're zags warrant. Their cell is at least a consideration. Got about it you know. I think the two best sporting events that are covered just attended our final fours and Golf tournaments pg journalists will be one of those here by the way. It's been too long since we've had a pga event hopefully the next couple of years. I hear that could happen It's not in the cards this year. You know we thought about it. There are tickets available and that sort of thing. But i've got a four month old and he's pretty awesome. And i don't want to mess up the mojo you know. He's he hasn't seen this eggs lose yet. Which is i don't want to. You know he's gotta learn to defeat at some point in life but about we wait till next wednesday or so before that kicks in so janis and join it. I'm gonna stay here and watch with my dad and his grandfather renowned three generations of cleese watson zags in the final four. So should be fun. Yeah it sounds awesome. They're there might pick. They were obviously in the same bracket as as my jayhawks. And i know you've got an affinity for the jayhawks as well when those teams played right after thanksgiving it was obvious. Gonzaga was going to be really really good. what. I didn't know until talking with my cousin and his daughter. I guess is also technically my cousin right. That drew timmy. Because she was in high school a couple of years ago drew. Timmy went to my high school in dallas. How he got out of the big twelve or how mark was able to pluck him from the north dallas suburbs. And get them all the way to spokane. And he's not i don't know if he's zags overall best player but he certainly is is a catalyst and a lot of ways. I can really You know he's got. It's probably easy to like. if you were at duke. He'd be the most hated player in america. It's a great point. I'm starting to wonder if some of the feedback. I'm getting zags becoming duke lot. People don't like them anymore. I guess could have with winning. Yeah he's he's phenomenal meza. They're pretty selective with who they identify who they pursue a suggs jalen suggs. Was that way that A believe he actually reached out to gonzaga to recruiting But just kind of find guys that seem to fit what they wanna do and they don't extend scholarship offers in. Timmy was one of those guys k. State was in his house. You recruited him illinois house. You know all those big twelve schools were involved but hughes predetermined to go to spokane. So it's pretty wild times man. I i can't believe it. I i remember those ages may but we could walk into a game with two minutes before tip often. You can sit in the second row you know and now now they're beast. It's a machine that created a gotten. What's what's interesting about is they've gotten international players the best international players for twenty years now and i think pretty soon Not to break a news here. But they're gonna probably get a commitment from one player in the country so if you're getting the best international guys the best american guys. You're going to be all right. yeah then. They're long past the days of amid major. It's been certainly a different tournament. I'll admit and you know. I love college. Hoops i've watched the least amount of this tournament. And maybe part of it was made part of it. My jayhawks warrant to win it. And i knew that the losing was inevitable. I didn't they be the way it went against. Usc didn't surprise me. So for whatever it will. Because i watch less games this year and they just even they were on. They were almost always an empty. Arenas it just never. It didn't really connect. I mean i was happy. A bunch of brackets. Even though i pick yours eggs. I was pretty terrible everywhere else. They're the only final fourteen that i got in my bracket So were you able. I imagine your enjoyment hasn't waned at all because last year get us going to be the number one overall seed and i was. I had my flights book to atlanta. I wasn't gonna work it for the first time ever. But i'm still going. Yeah so yeah so. Has it been tempered at all by the uniqueness of this tournament and then kinda the strange way. It's played out all in indiana. Yeah it's It's different for sure. I watched more ball than i have since i covered it. You know and a cover the big ten for six or seven years in the valley for handful years and is part of that having a baby at home and so you were going to the mountains last. You just doing like. Do you think that factored into your home and babies are up at all hours and there's always college games on will watch more two pm mack games than i think any human. Her sister got really invested the season. In part of that was gonzaga part. It was just that we got games at noon on wednesdays. You know and i'm working from home and don't leave the house much that sort of thing and i'm on a basketball junkie. It's all i wanna do is watch college basketball. No matter the level of the zags are just there. They played incredibly entertaining just joyful brand of basketball. It's it's so much fun to watch. You know watching the game last night as see they were really good. You know and they a chance not over. It was over five minutes so it's a lot of fun to watch them and watch the program grow in that sort of thing into what it has become but i did. I do really like this. Final four i. I think that it's very interesting. File floor I love houston. I think houston's really good. I think they're gonna get baylor whale of game. I actually like houston one straight up in that game. But i don't know about the ucla. I don't think that's going to be. I think it's a fourteen point spread. That's that's probably about right. If low but yeah i'd gotten completely invested in this game. Janis watch more. Otc games you watch. Probably twelve cmo gains which no form dole has ever done but when you have friends coach and he watched other games so he's he's got invested in it to i'd like to thank hopefully six four jumps out at the gym sunday. Well i've seen that's all your wife is in a call you are. So he's six four. That would know would certainly be. It'd be it'd be unexpected. We'll say that our before we get to the broncos l. Let's talk about what else is going on in town we have rockies opening day. Thursday may twenty one thousand fans. I had a chance to go. But it's not gonna be the same. So i'm gonna wait and just you. There's eighty eighty more games. I know i'll get the some rocky station. So i get my hands on a couple of tickets. Shouldn't be that hard at some point. If not sooner than later pinata they play but twenty one thousand fans are. You've been advocating for fans for a long time. And now we saw first responders at the nuggets game. We're gonna see it at the avs and then and then the four thousand fans and hopefully that number will keep going up if if everything trends in the right direction. So i know it's overdue. But how excited are you that. They'll be fans back in games just as somebody who rights you know on behalf of the fans especially iraqis games. 'cause that Which you always have with rockies games jeff great crowds. You may have bad baseball. But you got great crowds and i'm most I think i'm most personally looking forward to seeing two things. One is kids back in the ballpark. It's no better place in colorado kids of course field and then the the workers that haven't been able to go to work you know. I think that's a big deal. I am looking forward to this fans returning. Because i think you have also two teams here that you know the observe their a steamroller right now. They're just they're smacking teams by large margins and the nuggets. I think the move that they just made for. Aaron gordon joker bodyguards. He can't mess with the big guy anymore. So i think they just got really good and i think for the second time and in our lifetimes. Pk i think the nuggets can win an nba title. And that's not something that aside from two months in march april of two thousand nine right. You know you've been able to say with a straight face and i'm saying it with a straight face. Yeah i think they can win the title and the asked me the favor of the nhl. So i'm glad that people here are able to if they choose to and if they don't want to certainly don't have to go but they're able to go and see these teams because really these are. These are rare times at at a pepsi center a ballerina. Excuse me i like you. You've just got one baby. I've got too many to count running around. I'm factoring in come playoff time even down the stretch but certainly playoff time. I'm planning on being ball arena. Lot plus still covering the broncos. Whatever looks like during the day if there is some ota not just zoom calls but if there's actual workouts that we're going to get to go see a little bit at ucla training centre or whatever. So that's part of the reason even though it's opening up i think if i can take at least my my two boys to the game than that. I will at some point baseball basketball hockey. But i am excited that there are going to be some fans in there and hopefully that that number will grow. Because you're right. Both these teams are poised to to make a run before we get to the bronco. You mentioned aaron gordon. How you you said that. That's a protective for joke. Really six points in a in a second game but his presence especially defensively. I think it can two purposes. And i wanna get your take on this one. He just will play good defense on the other teams better better players kind of regardless of position. But you talk about lebron. Anthony davis and guys that you're likely going to have to to see in a deep playoff run if they're they're right and we could go team by team but he also hopefully will encourage michael boorda junior to realize there's two whole size of the court. It's not just offense. There's a whole side. We have to play defense. So hopefully they'll rub off on on the youngster as well. Yeah and it takes a little bit of pressure off him you know. They've they've earned him pretty hard about his his defensive tendencies which were lacking for a while. But he's he's capable of being a fine defender like that where that would make that makes it sound makes it sound like he actually has attendant. Maybe maybe he has a tendency to play with the idea that he has multiple tendencies. When i'm getting a text from charles barkley sorry namedrop there but when i'm gonna tax on ploughs. He's the worst offender on the planet. I should've i should've screen radd the tax. I should go back and find it. And i'll send it to you. Maybe i'll see if i can find it here if charles barkley. No one's confusing. Charles with being dennis rodman or tony. Honor scottie pippen and that's a weird order but donations a vendor if barclays saying that. Then you know you've got some work to do on that end. Yes yes he did and but what he gives you on the other side is you always wanna play the guys that the other team does want us. You know it may not be guy that necessarily fits what you do. But i guarantee when when you're mavs square up with nuggets there would rather not see michael porter than him and he's been terrific lately. So i think gordon does when i say a bodyguard for for joker is not a you know. He's not a bad boy. He's not gonna not gonna go. Dwight howard the playoffs last year on you. But he does alleviate some of that pressure in that physicality because he's going to be extending that instead of you know vice versa. So i think he was a phenomenal. Move by the nuggets They've watched him for a while. It all kinds of background work on And also another thing is to. It's of like these grad transfers in college basketball games go from state to join kentucky. Your kansas gonzaga. All the sudden. You're in that winning environment. It's not something that you've been around and you have a tendency to embrace that. So i think he's going to recognize the opportunity he has and this is a team that i did not think was capable challenging those top three or top four teams and now. I think they're absolutely the conversation with the lakers. The clippers the jazz and whoever else in the west here is the text from september seventh the worst offender in the world. That's pretty you're pluses. I do enjoy i. You know the the knowledge from a kenny kenny. The jet and shock on these college basketball. It may not be there for the college game but it's so they can look in what they can look at players though and kind of look at it. I heard andy katz describe it. He's on dan. Patrick show describe it as looking at it through the prism of the nba. Like what will these guys look like in point was or as it relates to years. Zags was he's like these guys looked like an nba team. The way they play the share the ball all of that So but we've known that forever you have you have because he knows the game and understand it and he he knows a lot of these kids from is not only his being level player. He's on carolina's team. But running a a program so cal so he certainly knows the ucla and usc and some of the kids so there. There's a little bit more just kind of knowledge but it's bringing their thursday night show to the college game and kind of spicing it up as much as you like the clark kellogg's and while he's accident people that know the game. It's fun to add kenny. For these three weeks of this run great for this rating his bosses and the ncaa you know the biden hand that feeds you. It's funny about people's and why would you do that. He doesn't really wanna work like he just keeps re signing these contracts knowing that at age sixty which two years from now. He's going to be done because he wants to. Just officially play golf and fish everyday so he's not working past sixty so if they if they forced him into early retirement i think he he wouldn't. He wouldn't lose sleep over it. He can still get on all this zoom calls. He wanted with all of his friends around the world of sports radio and tv. But you're right. It's been really entertaining. It is it's great fun. I watch you watch every halftime. Because you don't know what they're gonna say gleaned. I gather stuff from it you know. Chuck said he'd take jalen suggs number. One that was. Does i opening to me. He was probably the third pick but i texted a few. Mba friends and they said he's absolutely in the conversation. Which really surprised me. Because kate cunningham so i enjoy man. I think it's the best show on tv. A you can kinda dang them for you know. They don't say the names right. They may not know this guy or that guy book. Whatever i'm entertained. I'm here to by halftime show on not looking to you know. Solve the world's problems rain to be entertained. So i hope they stick around. I guess they do. The final four shows will the they will always tricky to see. Cbs try to figure out how to use all eight of them because they're like no other crew and they're going back and forth from one or the other but they they make it work nicest guy. I only met him. I've only met one time. He was at the two thousand five four. I think st louis. It's cooler man. He he went out of his way to do an interview with me. You didn't need to appreciate guys do that people do that. He was just there just to be there right because they weren't even working back then right. He's just there. Yeah well that one. I mean michael. Jordan was there was a star studded. Jay z was at that. I feel like lil wayne might have been there to maybe all championship game. Yeah yeah because you were covering the right. I was covering the valley at that time. This is a crazy story but us you When i was young and I ended up in bruce weber's hotel room so five in the morning of carolina the night before the game and i wrote. That's what i wrote with. How scottish carolina and human. Sean may game. He went crazy and fouled out the ally and that night before Coach whoever said we don't have anything for for chaumet and he was absolutely right. Guard driven right and it should have had should have jr smith. He was committed to that team to add. Probably a Nba guy that carolina roster. Yeah day ours. Always gonna go down is like if they i know they have an nba combine per se. But if they would've put especially pros through the the workouts athleticism shooting. I'm saying once they're in the league he would have probably been second or third right there. With gobi andy way in his in his youth. Especially right you talk about. just talent. the nuggets of you those and they got one of them back in developing finishing off the nuggets. And then we will get to the broncos here when you see them make the move could bring jail back a bit of a rim protector and certainly at present now knows nothing but championships. You think winners you. Think he's got that pedigree for sure. Three of the last four rings got him. But you had gordon. Who's a really interesting piece and gordon's excited now. So it's kind of both. My questions are about gordon one. Do you think that helena up liking it here so much that he'll actually resign because the last time we saw trae like this like a dollar and not only. Did you want to get the old and said he was going to pre-game the meeting with the chaplain bream. Breyer meeting with the whole warriors team. He was the only nugget that was. I think was invited but he went. I remember seeing that thinking how strange it was when the when the war is upset. The nuggets that year. But he didn't wanna resign here. Gorge gonna have not just this season but all of next year. So why do you think we're saying here in to how surprised are you. Because you didn't think they were necessarily gonna make that move. I talked too. Chris dempsey he put a pretty low percentage zero but he put a low percentage on it and then i texted me. He's like yeah. Well i didn't say zero so how. How surprising was will aaron. Gordon be be here for a while. i think it's a great question. And it's what stood out to me was was not the specific. Aaron gordon pc added it was a signal that the nuggets saw window and it was four years ago in twenty seventeen before while there is still climbing. I asked Tim connolly were in the super team era. How do you decide when it is that. If you're in a spot to make that move and he said you have to look at. The other teams financials where are they. You know who are. They going to be able to resign. Are they going to be able to make. Trade deadline. moves can extend guys. That's the first part is what the other teams financials are. And then how good do you feel about your own guys. So those pull the trigger on this deal. Says this is their time that they feel that. It's open and now as far as resigning. If i'm if i'm a fifteen point per game guy which is what fourteen thirteen points per game guy. That gordon was. I'm looking to joker is the big. Atm you know. He's made he. Gary harris rich minimal murray rich now. Those guys are really talented athletes. But it does help. When you know you're going to get layups and open jumpers because he's gonna find you so if i'm that guy and i could see my points per game go from fifteen to twenty two all of a sudden my value anywhere else increases along with your value here so this is a a spot that denver has never been in before never where they have someone that can make you rich. And that's what joker can do so. I think it's going to open some eyes. You got the michael porter that's gonna come up You're gonna have to deal with your own financial situation but tell you what man there are few places maybe here in milwaukee that if you're a guy who is a a mid tier guy whatever however you want to characterize him he can make you go to that next year Not only in terms of production but in terms of your wallet. And that's a pretty pretty Enticing place to be. So let's we'll check in on you at the nuggets. Come let's get to the broncos. All work i guess chronologically and let's go all the way. I don't know if i've to since george payne was hired. Would you think of the higher and then what do you think is. He's gone through the early part of of the offseason now and through the bulk of the first big wave of free agency. kind of. Tell me your opinion on the higher end. What he's done and then we can kind of look at each move. Yeah i think it's like a lightning basketball recruiting class. It was for me it's Is this a good idea. We'll ask me for years you know. Let's see how it goes. I didn't know anything about george. Peyton goodness he could be next door neighbor but what he's done. So far i think is promising. In terms of the the instinctiveness this isn't something i foresaw whatsoever. He in vic fangio are really sim more. There's there's a lot of characteristics there that are you know they're like it's a thirteen years different aids. That's no big deal. They both are lifers services. What they're gonna do forever. They enjoy monday through saturday as much as enjoy sunday and some cases probably more so i do think that what he's done so far is give fangio every opportunity he really has. He has empowered him a some of these decisions. No you remember vick and shelby harris. They really got into it on the sideline couple of times. It was no joke. They got into it but they went ahead and brought him back. Because i think fangio likes that kind of guy boom right. He likes someone. That's not afraid to stand up to a thorny a little bit and kind of guy and so I think that he has given him the opportunity to win next season. Now of course the outlier or the the carrot out. There is the quarterback in that's going to define the pay narrow it absolutely is just like it's defined kansas city just like it will define sandy aer l. a. You gotta find that guy. And that's been the elusive target. So ask me a couple of years. If he has a quarterback. He's going to do a really good job here so there have been plenty of early grades and they went from being i. I had them around a solid b. Maybe it'd be plus to full-blown a minus now ending though taking over the top is if one of two things happens drew lock becomes really good and that's going to be on peyton. Having the patience to let him become good then becomes an eight plus right or they go fine competition that when he gets on the field either beats drew out or when he gets the opportunity. Takes the team to the playoffs right. That's how you can define this year but when you look at the moves and it's so funny to watch the nature fans as the patriots are signing player after laughed player and then the broncos aren't doing anything and then their first move is resign shelby like bless a guy everybody wanna back. Have you follow on twitter. Fans wanted him back then the the next move why just the day before it was they picked up vons option right then. They signed ronald darby. Who you start looking at the tape. Kids really talented and everything. But they still got all this money to spend but you give it a couple of days all sudden they sign a pro bowler and kyle fuller a guy that was an all pro with vic fangio and by the way they they may. Justin simmons is paid safety and football. So you've taken care of your own you've brought in to really big pieces at corner that will take that room to the next level especially if they're on the field and fuller and misled games. Darby just been snake bitten but last year he. I think played the most snaps of any corner in football. So i think it took it from easy. Their fans to all right look now now getting a at least based on what i've seen from these offseason moves. I'll i'll go be tougher critic here. I think it's a b- because they five and eleven last year. Yeah so it's kind of like minds always in college basketball right now. All they got everybody coming back but they got everybody coming back. Here's pushback instant argument. How many games had von miller play last year. Von miller brand play together right and we think bryce cowhands coming back. But how many bryce callahan play right and fuller in darby are both upgrades. Fuller's really good. And then how many games let me throw one more at you. How many games. A courtland sutton play last year. Yeah that's great. it's absolutely. It's very true that this was a team. That was just devastated. I'd never seen a professional outfit. That was devastated by injuries. Like that one was now you get next year to prove that's why it happened. You know i think the impetus or the i guess the pressure right now is on fangio that you have defense. That on paper looks like it should be pretty good so don't start owned for. Don't three games without a sack. Or a turnover. You got the guys that you wanted. It has to have to produce in. That's that's doesn't have anything to do with the quarterback so there is some pressure on fangio. Now now i think in saying that george pain really wants to fangio to win. I think they've liked to work together for a while because they are so similar. They love the process. All the things we talked about and now he's got this year proved that that's something that could happen while an the idea of cutting your nose to spite your face. Someone that comes into a situation. It's like a new owner takes over whether it's a pro team or whatever new manager comes in they do. They're going to only bring their people well unless whatever they were doing before was crazy successful in all. Those people want to leave wherever they weren't some them. Bradley got promoted. Are you going to be able to do so. Is there a coach out there. The george peyton manning to perhaps but maybe maybe there's been a guy that he's ready to throw into that role or go find another guy that vic fangio was part of the allure of what brought him here because he played those defenses. He knows how much vick loves football. You know if you're looking for either of those guys most of the time if they're not with family they're almost certainly going to be in their office right. That's just who those guys are in you alluded to that. So the i guess. The one thing i push back against but i'll say you're saying it's not under lock well to some degree it is but i'm curious your your well not to some degree to a lot of because this is the nfl. To what how do you look at peyton and fangio and pat shurmur and everybody else in the organization waiting on lock not ready to pull the trigger so you know what this kid's done which is certainly the nature of many fans and and even analysts and and people at cover this team or other teams are like lot can't play because you and i both plenty of throws and we talked to players. They'll tell you about this stuff he does. It's different and what's funny. Is these days saw. The zack wilson throw where he rolls laughing. And he's it. All the way across the field. Saw justin feels well. Somebody found a drew lock. Throw that look the exact same and if looked as easy if not easy. I repeat it earlier earlier this morning so we know that he has all the physical tools. It's gani get there on the other side. So i think i don't mind this patient approach especially because i don't know how high they can get in the draft anyway to get one of these other young. Qb's to replace drew. Lock know okay. So i don't want to go on a tangent here. But i i've got into these pro as men. I can't get enough me both dude. The i'm going to watch and i paused pas. Lsu produce notre. Dame's coming up just to talk to you right back to watching him. I'm watching these quarterbacks man. It's it's like i feel like a jon gruden a goal and is this guy two hundred forty pounds. He's six five it. He runs like a wide receiver. It's really this of collar. Murray season in homes and and the kitten in la you know and then these four guys at the top of the board here. It's really incredible. Just how big and fast that they have gotten in watching the throws either not wear pads. Nobody russian all that stuff. It's still it kind of blows my mind and it's just it probably shouldn't we seen it for a few years now but there has to be an incredible temptation their human to watch trae lance. Go like that. You know to watch Wilson's my favorite guy in my favorite guy. Ask you is of the five of you. Were going to rank them. We'll we'll how to lawrence because chris simms does. Yeah i do i. Somehow i grew up a lobos fan. And so i didn't like byu at all in that sticks with you'd never goes away so i wouldn't tune into a byu game for anything. But i'm watching this guy going. Holy cats how is he that big in that polished in. He's twenty one or something years old lousy twenty one at byu issue twenty six. You're not bothered that. He wasn't a that he wasn't a team captain. Now it's a little odd here. yeah. I don't care doesn't matter to me but i'm watching physically gone. There has to be some temptation adult valley to say there are four guys up there that five. Excuse me. I like fields to. He would probably be three for me. Might yeah. he'd probably be three. At prego wilson lawrence lance midfield. So those would be my four jones v. I admire orders way different other jones. I still have lawrence one. I've got fields to wilson three and lance for awesome goodness gracious. That's stuff yesterday. Quarterbacks shouldn't be able to do that you know. And it's i feel a bit like a fan watching it but i think i'm just amazed at the athleticism these guys. So there's gotta be temptation over there. I just feel like that conversation of moving up isn't finished. The it's too enticing. Now his initial press conference. I believe george payton's of not going to force it. He's been he's pretty much done what he said. He was ended view. You know in a lot of times. They'll kind of be us and say things and you gotta read between the lines and they go a complete opposite direction. He's been just what he said he's gonna do so in that sense. That conversation may not have been ever alive. And but boy watching those four or five guys. Man it's tempting. Okay so let me pin you down. Final thing i have for you. I guess it's kind of a two part question. What do you think they do. Because i doubt. I'll talk with you in this setting before the draft. What do you think they do leading up to the draft. And or how do they address quarterback competition. I don't call it backup quarterback but that's what it feels like so. Give me the answer to both those questions in whichever it were you wanna attack it. It still think there's guy out there in the pickings are so slim at this point of terms of free agents that you could go get that have played but there's gotta be someone they can bring in from what he said sa- on my part. I think there's a better chance to trade back and they trade up. That's that's where. I am right now on march whatever. It is march thirty first. It's my birth thirty first birthday easy. I still think he'd really values draw capital. I think he adds picks and they moved back a few spots their most. So far is to make a really cool defense to watch to coach. And you take a linebacker vic linebackers. He loves good. Ones and i would guess right now on march thirty first. But it's paul down there making these decisions. He's gone up. He's gonna get one of those quarterbacks too tempting on the hand they saw the kid from notre dame here on wednesday if they don't go. Mike parsons i'm blanking on the name. It's a long name but he is as one scout told me a heat seeking missile. Here's the thing. He weighs two hundred fifteen pounds. Six one to fifteen. I asked work. Comp is the on jones from the falcons who runs around and is also heat seeking missile under-sized e is almost the same size. He weighs twenty seven. So if the cowboys which your jalen smith what's he he's he's gotta be more than that he's he's enemies. Hair weighs ten pounds. So i mean i can look up real quickly on on your way out the door until you love. What jalen smith. Who's maybe overpaid jalen smith Let's see here quickly. The internet says he is six forty two. So that's that's that's bigger than two to fifteen to twenty. Seven are powell. Wesley woodyard was in that kind of to thirty range. If you can fly around you can tackle. They'll they'll get over especially because we live in a world where fullbacks rarely exist you. You're still taking on guards but you can if you can get there and enron side to side and cover. That's linebackers needed. We'll talk louis. Thanks for stopping by happy. Good luck to zags. I need to get zags. Pint glass over here so when you do come over everyone starting to get their vaccine shots and the world's bring up a zags. Maybe they win. I'll buy zags national championship or eight. And next time we can do as happy hour in person so as always. I really appreciate the time. And i'll catch up with you here soon. Buddy thanks time man. Happy birthday thanks. Thank you chat with. Paul cleveland watch that for some reason you can watch it. I'm not saying don't watch it but you just listen to it. It's on the broncos page under became happy hour on koa news website. So check that out. How about that game. Saturday night though. And it's a bummer. That we talked before that if they win the national championship. I'm probably going to track. Paul down again this week for few minutes as well just because after celebrating maybe later in the week or maybe even on the coming weeks around or before the draft but there with paul read them all time. Both gazettes denver gazette colorado springs these ads columns and compare in both places. Gazette dot com but He's he's a true gem of a writer of big time colorado's sports fan. Who i think right sings from the perspective of of the fan. A well informed fan. But that's that's the way he goes about everything so anyway if you if you haven't started reading do that now at by paul klee on twitter if you don't follow him either Like i said. I'm picking the zags. Think he's gonna be close most because win. I'll say it's eighty one. Seventy nine is my final score here this before and if you hear it after then you'll laugh at me so i appreciate you. Listen and got plenty on this week and leading up to the draft Will teddy bridgewater beyond the move could becoming a denver. We'll be dialed in on that. So i appreciate you. Listen and we'll catch you next time. On the broncos daily podcast.

January 29 Hour 1 Nolan Trade Rumors *Intensify* | Kelly Lyell of The Coloradoan

"Good afternoon northern colorado. This is the whole show powered by pd energy. I'm alive from the article is specialist studios. Good to be back. You'd be back in this chair. I guess i was in this chair earlier but it felt differently. Colefax filling in for tanner went with noko. Now who was out on assignment today. And how did talk about like news in and the stock market. Apparently that's a big thing now right. Yeah well yeah right now i. I don't know man. I don't know do with what's happened. Game stops awesome. It's always been. It's always been going. Yeah but nowadays people buy it on their computers and their video games. I still going in. I was gonna say. Do you have like. I know you're really into cd's books cds per video game. Yes but it's getting less because my wife is trying to convert me to buying them on the through the xbox although it's cheaper to go in the store this though i think so why and what happens when you run out of hard drives hard drives based on your xbox games and then he just lose it. Yeah you gotta you download it you you so you can download it. I think you wanted to go back. And yeah i think so i. I was joking about this with the show. Today i mean. Can we bring blockbuster back now. Where was all this when blockbuster was going down. Is that not as cool. Guess not guess not. I'd be down for that. There's one store we confirm that in minnesota isn't it. Michael should know that. Michael p should know that he's listening. Just michael pompeo walked by the window and gives a thumbs up or thumbs down if if you know that. The blockbuster is in minnesota somewhere. This lonely little blockbuster. Oh documentary cop. Last blocked the last blockbuster. I would go to that man. I would make trip a trip to go to that. And then i'd buy something i wouldn't even rent it. 'cause i'm not coming back. I could buy that candy and stuff. Do you do you mess with the d. dabble in the stocks do dabble in stocks. Really not not really so a little bit. I try the earlier last year. And then can you tell us what you go their top secret. I always joke. I'm like my wife's talking about it. And i'm like you might as well gamble. You might as well gamble with sports. At least i follow the games. That i can. At least give you an idea of who the players are and who's out and who might win right by the way. I'm three and one on thursday nights folks there you go yeah. That's that's winning clippers. Were five point dogs. And all i did was i just went deep into my thursday night special brain and made a pick. It's all. I do. Three in one. And i got a lot of hogan's coming at me today because i'm flip flopping on something i'm flip-flopping. This isn't an endorsement of drew. Lock stand by what i've said about drew. He is not the franchise quarterback three draft picks. I've thought about it for sean. And maybe a player too steep not going there. It's too steep man. You have your new general manager. George peyton one of the first things he says i believe. In building a franchise our team up through the draft hard to do that with three first rounders gone and i. It's not like the shots coming here anyway. So do you want to flag that out there. Hey we made a call. And we're we're willing to make that offer and then two shots like no. I don't think so but now drew lock. It's into that we could talk about it all day and it's just gonna like it's either going to bug drew lock or not but it's not as team but if he hears that george payton goes out and is willing to make that offer it shut down. It's like coming back to you. Know hey drew. Hey juno you're good man we we believe in you. I mean that's that's gotta be rough on a young quarterback's brain. He's already going to be bad. What what does it matter. Maybe it motivates him maybe maybe dead in it. I'll show you but get this adam. Schefter says he tweeted texas. Gm before we take a few questions organizationally. We want to reiterate our commitment to deshaun watson. We zero interest in trading the player. Then it's done there. You have it no more talking about shell watson. This deal is over. Houston said he's not going anywhere. And i believe him now. This thing is far from over this is like carson palmer situation on steroids because this is posturing so what is you. Watch american pickers. I've converted you to that a little bit. Yeah so what is. I'm not going to sell it price. Because he always get those. The always a dark caves. These people live with their stuff that they've hoarded for years and it's just a fantastic show and it's like hey how about you trade for that. Gasoline sign that. Sit in your garage. That's covered in dust and offer sale. And i'm not norway Bettering on that one okay. How much is not for sale. You could food it. Five thousand dollars that sign that has a mouse in the side of it and it's covered in dust five hundred deal. I got five hundred. Let's do that. So that's the thing that's houston coming out saying that there's no way to sean ends up staying in houston right. There's no way boy this is a i. Just listen i. I believe in building the defense i believe in getting back to building the defense and this is what one year super bowl. That's what i'm no. That's what i'm going off of. What one year super bowl before was perhaps the greatest assembly of offensive players. We've ever seen with john elway. Shannon sharpe terrell davis mean. That was a hell of a group. Rod smith and eddie mack and then a great defense to. They were great in every area. It's hard to do especially in today's game. That's difficult a difficult task. But you know you look at it and said how did you win last time you you gotta build up on that defense and you were. I felt like you were closer last year. But you decided draft to receivers in the first two rounds this year. I think okay you gotta do. It takes justin. Simmons should be priority number one not to shawn watson. Justin simmons should be priority number one. Get him locked it. I'd like to see shelby. Harris locked in at alexander johnson. Maybe but you get those priorities taking care of then you draft another lockdown corner and then you have suddenly have decent your safety or two of the best in the league. According to football focus kareem jackson. Just to the best in the league. And you have cream locked up. So you that route. Get your corner at nine patrick's retain whatever that might look like we'll go through that later. He locked at up and suddenly you have a you have a great defensive backfield excellent if again. This is ag boy. I don't know what the future holds for him with the broncos but he was he was okay. Bryce callahan was good when he was on. The field goal edgy boy had his moments and then he got in trouble. And you know he'll serve that start the next season but so you build that up then. Last time i checked. They're still six other rounds. So you can. You can fill up that linebacker spot now you look at it. And dern ad was was a guy drafted last year later in the in the mid rounds and he got hurt and training camp so we didn't even get a chance to see him. They were pretty high on him now. We don't know what's going to happen with von miller but that does start to secure a good a few spots and then if you can do something in free agency or in the draft you might. You might get this defense along with vic vic. Fangio's a defensive coach. So let him be great. Let them be the best they can possibly be. I'm going back to my old self colfax. Might my defensive mind itself that started last year. And i've kind of i tried to buy in to what they were doing. Offensively and i just listen other than the shawn watson. I don't think i'm there with anybody. Else matt stafford soon to be thirty three on february seventh. That's young now in the nfl. But why hasn't he elevated detroit detroit right now. I know it's denver. Denver doesn't really have this great reputation and five year. Five years is a long time. Five years is not like oh well last year was a blip five years is not a blip and so the broncos don't really have this reputation either is matt stafford going to walk over here and suddenly. The broncos are plastic. But it's going to take number nine. It's gonna take number nine to get stafford. And i don't know that i'm there. Couple second rounders. Maybe but i'm not ready for a first round pick for thirty three year. Old that has been in the playoffs. Three times lost three of those times. So we'll we'll talk about that. We're gonna get into all this today. Also boy colfax was the depressing thing this morning. Going back and watch an old nolan our auto videos and clips. That's about all you're going to have of him in iraqi uniform. You remember this colefax about what was the to was this two years ago. Wow it was. The sun was shining. It was a beautiful day the birds chirping and the rockies had their guy at a promise of a great future with this statement. Toma coaches on my boys man. I love you guys I love this group. That's why i committed here. Because i'm comfortable. It feels right. It feels right with this young group that we have and the grass is always greener on the other side and believe me. I educated myself a lot on what i really wanted and i just felt like this was the best thing for me I love playing with this group. I think we have a great group on my really believe we can win I wouldn't make this decision if i didn't believe that And i'm just very happy to be here for the long haul. And i'm going to do my best to be a great teammate. Be a great leader and to try to help his team win. It'd be the best their basement. I can be and so the rocky fans. I'm not leaving I just wanted you. Guys are no back and i couldn't be happier to spend hopefully the rest of my career in denver. So you heard that last part though. Hopefully you just signed an eight year deal. Hopefully the opt-out major league baseball rumors cardinals talking nolan trade with the rockies so this was coming out from the athletic ken rosenthal and the athletic reported this aeronautical twenty nine likely would waive his no trade clause to join the cardinals and perhaps agree to push back his right to opt out. After the twenty twenty one season the rockies would love to escape his one hundred and ninety nine million dollar guarantee over the next six seasons almost certainly would absorb at least one high price veteran from the cardinals while also receiving prospects in the deal is nolan aeronautics summit you were like the idea of nolan being gone no way. You're out of your mind. This isn't happening. It's it's it's probably happening. And we have to come to grips with this and it's a it's a depressing thing but i i will ask this question. I suppose colfax what has had what has having the best third baseman in baseball done for you but not a lot. Good highlight reels. Some damn good highlight reels and listen. Baseball's just that kind of sport. Yes nolan's a great hitter. He's an amazing third baseman. The rockies figure out the pitching. And i don't know those of you out there. Those naysayers the whole organs orlando never going to finish the figure out the pitching bigots colorado than what are we doing here. What are we doing. You should be right in line with dick mon- when he's had a couple of stiff ones and he's like you know what i'm wondering. If state even needs a baseball team you should be right in line with them. If you don't think pitching can never make make make it go around here. Eighteen minutes after the hour. I got a couple of spots remaining for our madden challenge. We're going to be doing this at saint michel square inside the no co mobile gaming trailer. Is he's going to be amazing when you see this trailer. It's going to blow your mind. And of course thanks to greeley bears pop warner they're hooking us up with a ps five. No questions asked you just got to win the tournament and you get it best of twenty. I mean it's bracket of twenty and you. Have you have a one and twenty shot to win a ps five. So i'll be registering somebody for that later on today. Nineteen minutes after the hour. Our power to play sports. Poll question is up. Can the ram sweep the broncos going back at it tonight and everybody. We talked to says that game two usually the hardest if you found a win game one and the whole against fifty seven percent of you are saying no nineteen after the hour. Busy program coming up. Carolina will join me at the bottom of the hour. Christmas iraqis insider from dmv iraqis. And our boy. Cody rourke join us.

Thirteen ten kfi k. Brian how colorado buffaloes beat writer for the buffs buffalo and. You're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfi twenty four minutes after the hour. Welcome back to the show and tell you guys about. I've been telling you a bit about no limit. Collectibles there in the outlets shops in loveland and speaking to card collectors current card collectors like basketball football baseball card collectors. Or maybe you used to collect in your thinking you know what but see if i can sell these trade these for some in store credit type deal you talk to no limit collectibles. Man i mean they are a huge huge store in there. It's not like one of these tiny little shops with like eighteen things and then that's it. They've got everything in there. I've been asked okay. Is it just local memorabilia. Or is it big time national stuff can i. Can i get josh allen wyoming stuff can i get patrick mahomes. They got jordan's in there from almost every year. They've gotta just a bunch of different things as far as sports memorabilia. If you are looking to make that man cave look better than it's ever looked or you're just starting it. Maybe i'll let no limit collectibles help you out by seller trade. There's no limit to what you can collect. I evaded eight is text. Line is is nine seven four seven eight thirteen o one nine seven four seven eight thirteen o one and if you want to get involved in the show you text. Kfi to that number. And if you're already a part of the club you don't need to do any of that. Just let me know what you think. Power to play. Sports poll question of the day. It's colorado state. going to sweep boise. State is a crazy night. In the night. Wednesday night was a was a great moment for colorado. Say probably the the best win by niko medved and i think overall when you look at it i mean he's had some big wins before he's had some huge wins in the past whether that's utah state san diego state some nice ones last year. Get into twenty wins and then the year before that you know he was at eleven just getting just getting his feet wet but the that was a that was a victory. Perhaps the biggest one the broncos were the top. But if you're the if you're the rams now you want to make a serious push into that at large bid if you sweep the broncos you use time in the conference and you're tied for that top you're tied. It's a three way tie there and suddenly you're talking about okay. Maybe this team can be the regular season champs. They've never done it in the mountain. West conference certainly have the pieces to do it because when you look at the conference boise as nine in one utah state nine to the rams nine into number ten utah states tend to excuse me and yeah colorado state ninety two. If you beat boise state. You break the tie breaker there. And then you've got you split with utah state and you've got a three way tie. All teams with two conference losses and boise state and utah state still have to play each other down the road so then even if you lose tonight. Winning one was so huge. Just why i asked david. David roddy was a great interview. Wasn't he quit a great dude. Every time i asked him something. You feel relieved. Feel like the pressure's off no none of that. And then every time you talked about individual stuff with him always went right back to the no. I'm just proud of my teammates. They move around and they make it possible for me to do these things. He's he's a guy that literally gets better every game. But i i really wanted to see a takeover game by him against boise state the other night and that's what it was man. He had a takeover game. So get this. I mean even though the rams win by twenty two boise state is still a two and a half point favorite tonight on the rams home floor. Now that's only half point. They were three point favorites the other night. So even though you beat this team by twenty two. You're still not quite getting that respect. The only way to do that do it. It's nine o'clock the late one. Tonight's on f s one but the only way to do that do it again on national. Tv now. I don't know how many people will be watching it's late but it's friday night colfax. I'll be watching. I'll be watching you ready for this one. i'm excited. You think they sweep them. I'm going with the. They got the magic on their side. I got that feeling man. They looked so much better than the broncos so much better now. They've probably played their best game of the season. Maybe and boise state might have been one of their perhaps one of their worst the team average in eighty one points per game and they scored fifty six. So yeah you do need a few of the was a perfect storm to blow them out but state. They've got the depth. But i'm just to see. She's got some depth stevens and roddy. It's at any moment you can see tonge go off. You can see deshaun. Thomas go off and again. No more one. The more entertaining basketball players to watch. I don't see why not could be a big night a big night. Now get a programming no. Unc does play northern arizona tonight but because of prior commitments on our end on thirteen ten. Kfi tom we will not be able to carry that game tonight. We will carry the game on sunday afternoon. Pregame starts at eleven thirty and then the tip off is shortly afternoon so we will get back into the swing of things with you and see but because of the postponement from last night tonight We just weren't able to do it. We do have highland and resurrection christian tonight on preps radio. So i'm excited about that. When there is a stream option available if you want to get involved there go to thirteen cave. K dot com a banner ad. If you scroll down the page and you can click on the the the stream banner and that'll take you to what you need to do to get set up and you can watch and listen to clark. Johnson broadcast this game tonight. All right thirty minutes after the hour. We're gonna take a break we're gonna talk more colorado state with kelly lyles. Don't forget we're talking to drew crease. When we're getting some rockies talk today. I'm not anymore on this three i've been thinking about it. You know sports show host. I try to stick to my guns colfax. But there are times when i sit back and i go three first rounders. I mean that's regard is and george. Peyton say hey. I want to build to the draft hard to do that. When three i read three of your best shots at building might be crapshoot but you give me three chances at first round george peyton caitlyn one good player out of those three. Then you hired the wrong guy. Put to the test early. And i'm cool with the quarterback. I'd like a corner. I'd like to build the defense. But i'm cool with the quarterback. Talk about all that more But first let's get the latest on the local sports flash party a northern colorado's for thirteen ten. Kfi k the block party wednesdays from four to ten pm. Cato june all pro linebacker super bowl champion. You listen to thirteen ten. Kfi k welcome back. We are live for the auto collision specialist studios. Thanks for being with us. Here today is a is a jam packed. Friday a lot to talk about nolan. Aaron auto this shawn watson. The never ending quarterback conversation drew lock so much to hit. But i'm more interested in this one tonight. It's going to be another late night but i'm all in. It's friday feeling good. Colorado state boise state game too. I love these little mini series. Going on. I don't know the players and coaches do as much kelly lyell joining me from fort collins colorado and kelly everything that i've seen and heard and heard from players and coaches that if you win that game one it is really difficult. Sometimes no matter who. You're playing to come back and win that game too when you look at some of these conferences with those back to back situations. Yeah i think so. And i think we've seen that over the years and all of college basketball you certainly You know we always talk about if you sweep a team in the regular season and then have to play him in a conference tournament. How tough it is to beat them three times a year. This is kind of a A condensed version of that because the team. That just lost that game. They're really really really focused. Include in on what they didn't do right and what they need to do differently to win the second time around certainly the team that won the game you know they're gonna come out with a strategy to but often that strategy that worked in game one might not be as effective in game two. The opponent is so prepared so much. Better prepared for it so you you haven't seen as many Sweeps as maybe you would expect in some of these series. And you've seen some unusual upsets kelly. What was it When you when you look at this. This wasn't just a win. This was twenty two point game. Went right for the rams lot of things went wrong for the broncos. I mean disappointed. State team that last. I checked they were averaging like eighty one points per game. They come away with fifty six. They're very deep team of allston ended up with twenty points but nobody else really had a huge night. What was it. Colorado state defensively just Just found something in this match up on wednesday night you know. I think that's the biggest thing is we've seen this colorado team play really really good defense when it's had to We certainly saw during some big comeback wins over san diego state at utah state and at other times this season when they had a close out a tight game. They've shown the ability to really be able to buckle down and be a very good defensive team. Unfortunately they've also shown the ability to get lazy on the defensive ending kind of allow people to slip by him and we've seen that a lot early in games and that's partly how they've some of those big deficits. I think the biggest difference this time as they came out playing in kansas on the defensive end from the opening tip and then on top of that they They also then got into a nice rhythm offensively early and we're hitting their shots and i think when when they get that going at whatever point in the game they're really hard to beat and when they get that going early It's really tough for an opponent overcome so I think we saw gonna kind of the rams at their best at the in the first half of that game and it really kind of set the tone. Yeah well a lot's been talked about and again. It's not like it goes away. Boise state's a very deep basketball team. Maybe more should be said about the depth for colorado state. at least every game. You see a little bit more. Yes david roddy is going to be the star. Isaiah stevens is going to be the star. But you're seeing guys. I go back to the utah state One of the utah state games where they won. It was a sean. Thomas in short span came up with some big points. And then against against boise state when the broncos are making a comeback they get it within five you see tonj. Go off for a couple of quick quick buckets quick threes. So you're starting to see other guys on this floor contributing a really big way. Yeah i think so. Not that says a lot about the you know the kind of team that nico mets put together There's not really a player that he puts on the floor that isn't that can't be double figures scorer on a given night and there are a lot of teams that can't say that there are a lot of teams that kind of have role players that you know. This guys are defensive. Stop or this guys are rebounder or whatever color out of state every player that the rams are putting on the floor right now at least in their their primary rotation which is doing nine men deep Is more than capable of kind of having one of those big nights. We've seen it you know. Adam desolate hitting the threes and and then and then starting to drive when people guard better on the three point line You know we all know. Isaiah stevens david roddy or two of the best players regardless 'em regardless of class or anything else in the mountain west conference in are showing but kendall more gets his game going. You know john tonge. Is you talked about james. Mortars at times. D- sean thomas. There there are a lot isaiah rivera. There are a lot of people that done this team. That can kinda light it up but if if they get hot and i think that helps tremendously because not everybody's going to be on every single game no no question. You're exactly right. And that's what's that's what's not. And that's what boise state's kinda supposed to be. But the rams did a great job of spreading out that defense and because my fear was they were going to lock in on austin or or one of the other star players and then two other guys were going to dominate. And that just wasn't the case. Kelly now looking at the conference. This is so interesting man. You have the rams sitting at third at nine in two behind utah. State nine tend to boise state nine and one if the rams can pull it off which again. The broncos are a favourite tonight. If the rams could pull this off this is going to be quite the quite the finish in the conference especially with boise state still set to play utah state. They still have a really tough schedule ahead. Yeah and exactly and we've talked about that a lot. This season boise state kind of had. Its tough games back loaded onto its conference schedule whereas colorado state had its hardest games frontloaded. So so honestly if you're going in within a game of you know a game of boise state going in and that's the team you're worried about going into the homestretch colorado. State's chances look pretty good because got an easier path to that conference regular season title than the broncos do You know certainly utah. State is very much there in the thick of things. And i think it's probably still too early to rule out san diego state. Even though they've got three conference losses they're They're certainly still a very very talented team. That can come through and make some noise here. So it's gonna be a really fun homestretch this season to just kind of see how this all shakes out but boy. If the rams could get a sweep of boise that would that would put them not only in really good shape and conference race but it helps what tiebreakers utah couple that with already having split with san diego state and utah state. You're in very good shape when it comes to various tiebreakers for who the top seeds going to be going into the conference tournament and given the covert situation. I mean there. There's some talk conference. Tournaments might get called off and regular season champs may get those automatic bids and several conferences. I don't think the mountain west wants to call off its tournament but there's growing sentiment around the country that some of these conference tournaments may not be played. And that's a great point to now's the time to really build that resume up for that at large because again you never know how that regular season going to finish but know like we said. I think talked to you last week of this growing idea that there might be three teams out of the conference ultimately getting in but that that does change it right kelly if if they're ultimately isn't a mountain west conference tournaments and now's the time to build that resume. Yeah certainly and boy. Some you know some projections jerry palm. This we had four mountain west teams making. He had boise state. Utah state colorado state and san diego state. All in his sixty eight team field so You know we're seeing three is becoming a fairly common thing among the different People put out bracket projections so Certainly conference tournaments are are part of that but You want the strongest resume you can before the conference tournament. You really don't want to go into that conference tournament knowing that you know you've got to win the autumn attic by win the title when the automatic or you know get yourself to the title game to get those two more quality wins or whatever anything everything you can do to build your resume before you get there especially with all the extra uncertainty. The kobe created you. Know you might go into that conference tournament and all of a sudden. Your best player might be quarantined and not be able to participate so you really really want to build a stronger resume before then as you possibly can. Yeah no question about. I go kelly before we wrap up here. Do you see boise state saying all right david. Roddy just destroyed us. Offensively on the glass. Defensively this guy dominated. Do you see the broncos really coming out with a completely different game plan. Saying hey is as stevens might get it going somebody else might get combed but we are not going to let david roddy going tonight. I think they have to. They just can't let a guy do what he did to them the other night again and have any hope of winning so so yes. I think it's gonna count you know the other players colorado state's team are gonna make the difference tonight. You know david. Roddy i think is going to face a lot of double teams a lot of traps. A lot of you know help defense things like that. I think it's going to be hard for him to operate harder on both ends of the floor. I think they're going to try harder to make sure they keep you know. Boxing him out on rebounds too. So i think it's going to this game is going gonna rely more on those other pieces that colorado state has but again we talked about at the beginning there. They have a lot of other pieces. And that's that's big. You know. Even if i even if david roddy is getting ganged up on an is as stevenson's have an off night there's still three or four other ramps that can light it up and and pick up the slack Scoring wise and then if the whole team plays the kind of defense that it's capable of and that we've started seeing a little bit more of for better longer stretches games. I think the rams do have a chance to get what would be. A huge sweep of boise. State should be a fun tonight. Kelly a late one. But i think we're kind of getting used to that now so It'll be it'll be interesting like you said if the rams can find a way to do it it is gonna mean a big big thing not just for for for for colorado state but really for their big shot at getting that at large bid and boy wouldn't wooden rams fans go nuts at that point. Kelly appreciate always my friend all right. Take care time and kelly. Lyle of the fort collins colorado in. Listen i'm buying into it. I'm kinda starting to think that absurd to think they could do it Colfax check this out. Let's see okay. I wanna i wanna read this to. There's a drinking game out there for tonight's game when you know whenever the national media covers the rams it's always kind of funny because they just beat little stories to death so here's a drinking game. An announcer references. David rotties high school football career. Check a drink. Well i did that and in fact. I asked him questions about that yesterday. So technically you should be drinking right now trunk. An announcer mentions the atom. This was a cu fan growing up and announcer. Mentions that this will would can no more were. Drake commits an announcer references. Drake affirming which is where niko medved was from Coaching announcer references. Tonge game winner vs san diego. State announcer mentioned that issue has no seniors. That's a good one that one. They definitely talk about coach. Thorson is heard yelling. Fire fire a charge gets cau- ceus. You makes it three. Someone dunks isaiah. Stephen scores and transition. Here's the finish your drink. Finish your drink of david. Roddy gets called for a charge. That shouldn't have been called. Yeah they call this wacky charge against rotted i mean. I don't even know what they're looking at. Niko medved gets a technical foul. I mean he gets after. But i never see him get tax. Write a successful alleyoop. Haven't quite seen that with see issue. James more hits the three so there you go get a little little something for your friday night colefax dangerous. they're definitely going to mention. They're definitely going to mention the the david roddy football thing and the no seniors like again. I know broadcasters beat to death but those are like legitimate things to talk about. Well they bring up the track and field though they see. You're only going to get that kind of deep dive here on the show. He threw the shot put and discus and he was damn good at that too. Unfortunately there's not like a career. I mean there's olympics and stuff but you know chances of app but he was good at that too. He was a three athletes. Kinda guy fifty minutes after the hour. We'll take a short break. We'll have decrease on at the top of the hour talking about the rocky situation with auto. Where did it all go wrong. Do we will we ever know when it started like what happened. And obviously they didn't build around him. They couldn't whatever but was there. Was there just a moment when it was like. This is a dead end here. Ten minutes till the top of the hour suits the whole show powered by energy. Over a pack follow your. Unc bears all the way to march northern. Colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi cone now. Weekdays at four on northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi. Everybody this is dalton. Reisner two thousand nineteen draft prospect of wiggins colorado and. You're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten ks ks. Just five minutes until the top of the hour. We're gonna we have to interviews coming up on the second hour decrease men from dnv are rockies as well as cody roared from pro football network. Joining us love talking to code. Got a break in all things football in my crazy am i'm not. I'm not flip-flopping on drew lock. I still don't think drew locks the guy. But i'm just not there anymore. I don't i think three first round picks is just simply too much. I think that you're going to see guys overpay for For matt stafford. I think you're gonna see a guy's overpay for shawn watson at. I don't know what's going to happen with. Aaron rodgers ended. Matt stafford's going to require first round pick. He's thirty three thirty three years old. I know he's got like five years left but Are you are you really matt. Stafford away again to show. What's all admit changes everything but are you a matt. Stafford away from competing with patrick mahomes. You might be a show watson away but three first round picks. I mean your mortgaging your future. And here's the other thing. I don't know that everyone's talking about i get houston's a train wreck the broncos have been a train wreck for five years. Who's to say that shawn watson comes. There's no owner for the broncos folks. There's no clear direction at ownership. Who's to say that shawn watson comes to denver and in two to three years is happy here. I me just sign that contract with at the beginning of last season. So i think that's another thing to think about again. I you know. I know houston was an absolute train wreck but i'm just not their three first round picks now if you said number nine and a second rounder maybe two second rounders okay but three first round picks and i know the draft is a crapshoot. But i'm gonna put money on if you give george peyton. Everybody wanted this guy if you give him three first round picks in the next three years it's going to land big time on one of them right. otherwise why did you hire him. He believes in building through the draft. Let him work his magic. That's what you hired him for. Second hour coming up next.

Dixon says you keep your best players so other good players want to come here play with them. Not one player in major league. Baseball would want to come to colorado right now. Not one and the farm system is known as being one of the most talent deficient in the majors and then when we do trade aware best players we get crap in return and after pay the other team. Sorry brady but at some point you have to get tired people putting the spin on it that the best way to win is to get rid of your best players it. It's not a spin. It's the reality of the situation. You guys mistake me so much here. You're saying that. I'm defending dick monfort. Jeff it's i'm not. I'm calling the nolan. aeronautical situation. What it is nolan wanted out. They had to do it. That is now. Does that mean the rockies are good at what they do that jeff right is good at what he does the dick montfort. Good at what he does. The the atmosphere they've created is no. It's not good because this is where you are every three years. You you get a good couple of players the you bring up and the ones that do actually rise to the top they ain't long for the colorado rockies so i'm not i'm with you i am. I'm putting the spin. I'm putting on is. This is the reality of the situation. Dick ain't selling it. I mean that's the bottom line he's not going to sell the colorado rockies so he's going to continue to do stuff like this But there is a little bit of a spin all right. I'll say this you do have to build around your pitching. That's baseball now. It's kind of hoping it would be like the teeter. Totter effect like it was a great hitting the iraqis. Have all graders terrible pitching. They're never gonna win like this. Well you gotta get better now. We're back up here. I don't know how high we are. I don't know how great our pitching staff is compared to the rest bullpens. Certainly not but starting pitching not terrible. I think they're okay. Average above average. I mean marquez is going to have better outings. He absolutely will. John gray goes tonight so i'm not making like a spin. I'm just telling you. Hey you you weren't going to win constructed even with nolan the way you were you went to the playoffs twice Which i thought was pretty damn admirable. Nolan didn't think so was gone. Would it have changed things with the rockies. Be heading back on an upward trajectory now Dixon drew just said trade stories. Sooner than later. Because you gotta get something for them. Do you think stories gonna stick around. He's going to be free agent next year. Do you think. Trevor story wants to stick with the rockies. And that's what's going to happen is. That's what i would if drew if trevor story came today and said i wanna be a rocky for the rest of my career. I would say absolutely sign him. And if they didn't then it'd be another screw up. It'd be another bad thing that of course the rockies winded though i would disagree with but then he's not going to happen. He's he's going out here so now you're at this point. Where and he may have wanted out of there anyway. Even with nolan auto. Who knows but this is where we are man. I'm not. I'm not defending dick mon- i never once have done that. Even at my deep thoughts from a wandering monica crap because people are like. You're just putting this positive spin on the nolan thing. You're trying to make nolan. The bad guy not making nolan. The bad guy he wanted out he wanted to get out and the rockies had no choice was that the best deal they could get was austin gohmert and other guys and then giving fifty million dollars. I don't know that my i want to believe that. That was the best they could get. That was literally the only way to offload nolan. Aaron nado in the pandemic because teams were hurting mark. Knutson told us you hear him on the newton corner throughout the day here on kfi. He told us there's no way team would take nolan's nola knows contract in this climate with what happened last year and all the money situation. Well there was a team that would take him but they require fifty million dollars. So i do think that that was the only way to do i really do. I mean i don't know that for sure but that seems to be like the only way nolan was pretty pretty focused on getting the hell out fourteen minutes after the hour. We're gonna talk football. Cody rourke pro. Football that work. We haven't had him on the show in a while. I know he's been busy. He's got a lot to talk. What's his board. look like.

How colorado buffaloes beat writer for the buffalo and you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfi nineteen minutes after the hour. Welcome back to the show. We're live from the collision specialist studios joining me now. Cody rourke is on our i advantage. Hotline cody roar of course Analysts broncos for locked on nfl pods and senior nfl analyst at pro football network. Cody were getting dangerously close to the nfl draft. Are you mock draft it out yet. Cody yes i am. I tell you what i was. I've been having nightmares last week about doing a mock draft or having a mock draft deadline. The mock draft is suddenly out of order. Yeah that's where. That's where. I've been so i'm over it. I'm looking forward to the draft actually happening next. Can me too man. i'm ready. listen. I love doing mock draft. I love reading them. I love going through them. There's so many of them but then there comes a point where you're just like all right. I want to see it for reals. I want to see what this team really does at number nine code you've covered the nfl. You've covered the broncos for while now. Is this kind of one of the more anticipated drafts. The broncos have had in quite some time it mainly because of quarterback position but she got new blood with george peyton all. That's a perfect combo for a pretty exciting draft for denver. Yeah and i think that for broncos fans there's been so much intrigue over the last couple of years. John always last three drastic and pretty good for denver but denver. I feel like they sit in a position where it doesn't matter. What move they decide to do this. You're going to be in a really good place. They're going to get a really good player. And george payton's gonna make sure of that. So i i think that broncos fans have gathered a little bit of sense of security with george peyton. Everyone's excited see what he's gonna to do. Yeah no question about a man i mean. There's there's part of me cody. Thanks george gotta stay at number nine. Try to try to build up that defensive side of the ball but you know there's a lot of talk. There's a lot of chatter at. They're saying they could. George peyton getting aggressive and moving up and getting one of those top tier quarterbacks. Well what are you thinking. What does your gut tell you. what are you getting. Well you know. I think a lot of it depends on how the board falls after three. You know. I think everyone is so up in arms that they think mack jones gonna go there. I don't think max. Jones going to san francisco if they did and i think it's one of the worst mistakes they could ever make Kyle shanahan and john lynch But after them the atlanta falcons they pick it for and there's some intrigue there as to what they're going to rumors about them. Maybe have an interest in a quarterback There's interest in them. Maybe even taking best player real kyle pits so for them. They're the one team in question right now. Even carolina even though they traded for darnold. They could still go quarterback. And if they don't you're gonna teams like the new england patriots. The washington football team teams are looking for a quarterback. There maybe try to inquire about trying to move up to number eight and carolina trading back so there seen have to play the field a little bit. But i i feel like we're gonna look more clarity after the fourth. Pick as to where. Maybe dennis gonna go is this. You look at all these quarterbacks man. I mean that aside from obviously the interest is where the broncos are. But you have potential here. Cody the see. Quarterbacks go maybe one two three four maybe you get all of them taken before the broncos even get their number nine. That just goes to show you first. How talented these. Quarterbacks are. But how quarterback hungry the. Nfl really is yeah yard. Think the common narrative right now that you have to absolutely have A guy the quarterback if you're going to go anywhere in the nfl. Which i think is subjective. You can have that. Quarterback is very very important position. But the idea. Is that if you have a really good team around. Any quarterback can help. Lessen those odds a little bit but if you have a really good quarterback nobody around him. You know what's going to know what's going to happen and you know that's gonna be the the complex issue of that. We run into and what we see app. and so. that's where i met with the broncos. I think they have an opportunity to a lot of different things here and especially in afc west. I mean they they right now are built to be a very strong defensive team and and if this young offense can take the next step they're going to be much better off next season now the question is you know. How do you compete against kansas city. Well you focus on one game at a time. But i think that the argument about quarterbacks where he is that everyone has been so focused here on denver looking at quarterback and that quarterbacks has to play like patrick mahomes. That is where we're at right now at the nfl. And it really just goes shown in terms of casual observers football every quarterbacks got to play like mahomes but guess what he's a once in a generation type of talent and not many players are gonna play like we even have the system that he has. So that's why you know. I always encourage people. Look at the overall team not just quarterback. 'cause everyone's saying quarterback is the end all be all. I don't believe it's the end all be all but you have a yet to have a pretty good guy to go with it. Yeah and more or less cody. I i look at it. Because i like these quarterbacks and i really liked justin fields. I don't know that he goes to nine. But i'm more or less. Look at the defensive side of the ball. Cody and and i say this is a great unit. Looks like it's going to be great unit. Why not make it a top unit. Why not go get. If he's there. A mike parsons or patrick. Retain and add that cornerback depth. We know you've told us before. About how vic fangio really values the nickel and dime packages so why not get more. Dvd's there that's where i've been leaning this whole time. And i feel like that's against the norm but why not make your defense a for sure top team. You might be able to do that at number nine. Yeah and i think there's a lot of options when you look at cornerback whether you look at linebacker edge rusher. I don't think ever goes edge rusher in round number one. I'd be shocked if they did to me. If they go defense. It's gonna be a corner or it's gonna be a linebacker. It's going to be one of those two positions offense. It's either gonna be offensive line of quarterback so really. It's something that broncos fans can really fourteen. Yeah yeah no question. But what are you think code. What's your board. Look like at number nine. If even if one of those quarterbacks is available one obviously we know the first two guys. They're going to be gone. But there's potential who knows maybe justin fields. I've seen some mock drafts. Getting crazy with that thinking he drops or that denver gets aggressive to move up. What are your your board. Say what would you like to see. Denver do well. I released my official mock this weekend. The way that the board fell dividend half to trade up to get a quarterback. They got a guy at nine. And i selected trae last. Because here's how my voice is going to go. It's gonna go. Trevor lawrence zack wilson. Justin fields kyle pitch number four to atlanta penny. Sukhoi should be the pick for cincinnati six. The dolphins jalen waddell seven. Jomar chase eight. You know if the panthers stay put that year. They're not going the quarterback. They need some offense of wine helper. Sean slater and then a nine tree lynch's available so for me. That's kinda how. I factor in my board. And that's kinda how i you know. Bob hope hoping that's how it goes. I'm expecting it to go that way. We'll see if that actually happens. Though we trae lance talk to us about what what you like with trae lance. I mean like you said. There's some phenomenal quarterbacks in this spot is he one of those guys and obviously the the broncos would think that if they pick them up do you think he's one of those guys that makes that kind of transition that the broncos v so desperately looking for Or or does he said even behind for a year and you still go with drew lock if if the bronco selected. There's going to be competition between lock oxy. You're working and the thing that i'm looking at trae lance is you don't george payton has done a lot of backyard's got him when he was at minnesota so he kept his eye. North dakota state the issue and i think there's concern skepticism. The many people have is that he plays an f. c. at school. The competition wasn't that great. It's going to be a lot different when she come to the nfl to major major job in terms of competition and how fast the game is. How fast defensive backs reading. How aggressive defenses are. You're not point in the afc s where you can absolutely just destroy people with your arm and and also his legs. I mean the thing that stands out about lance. He does have a leak traits physical traits athletic trades. He's got those things but Seventeen total games. He never lost game and know seventeen games. It's just not enough of the sample sizes. A this guy is going to be game changing however you hope that he can be and he does have the traits to do so And there's a debate going on you know we. We hear this. Every week broncos twitter about drew lock and this and that is where he isn't the guy but the reality is. There's a difference in terms of there being a first round project quarterback versus a second round project quarterback drew lock. Many people. Don't remember this but drew lock was never supposed to play single down in two thousand. Nineteen last year was supposed to be to experts year as the starting quarterback but with everything going on with joe flacco they had to accelerate that process there. So it's kind of clouded. I think a lot of people's judgment but drew lock was never supposed to play as a working and unfortunately he got thrown into a fire and five games. And i feel like it kind of over inflated the hype around him and then so when we saw twenty twenty A lot of people were disappointed because it wasn't what they had expected. Right and three honest with you. I mean my god process. I still view drew lock as a rookie last year. That was his true rookie season and it was just a weird year. And there's things he's got to approve. There's also things he does really. Well so i. I think it'd be very interesting competition between the two of training. Camp cody rhodes joining us senior. Nfl analyst for pro football network as far drew lock goes and again even if they get a quarterback. You're still say. Hey this could be a competition and maybe drew still wins out that first year but ultimately the broncos draft a quarterback at nine or even move up. That's going to mean at some point. They're going to try them out and druze future as the starter is done. What kind of quarterback do you think he could still be. Do you think drew lock. I mean he fades off into the distance. He becomes a back up. Becomes a third guy or do you think that he has from what you've seen and again a very small sample. Does he still that. Ability to kind of re earn a consistent starting job. Maybe even with denver. Yeah that's a great question. I you know it's really hard to say because you know even his he's played seventeen. Nfl games toll as a as a starter. And there's there's some really good things that we see from in there some flashes. There's some things. Obviously he can develop even more. There's a lot of things that he absolutely has to improve on. And i think for the broncos with our eva withdrew with where he's at and we don't even know what he's meant to be right now in the. I mean he could be an nfl star or he could be a backup quarterback and we just don't know just yet and that's the that's the mystery. Oh that's why. I think this whole argument about drew lock on twitter and has become so toxic is because you got a bunch of people in that. He isn't the guy but we don't know whether or not he is or isn't the guy truly right. So the broncos wanna give him every opportunity maybe be the guy this season and if you can't beat out rookie of the broncos wrapped quarterback then it makes their decision easier. Says okay look. He isn't the guy maybe you know. Maybe he's a backup. Maybe he's going to be a good backup fail but we don't know what he's meant to be just yet. Cody rourke joining us from pro football network in again code. Hey we had a texter. So i got a nuggets question for you because you've got hokuapp about the nuggets and i think we both been frustrated with the officiating with the coverage of the nuggets nationally. So i got a little response from rachel nichols of espn last night. I saw you got a response to. We're going at it man. I mean this is how you get the nuggets. Is i get him some respect you. You got a little bit of response to about you know you called her out for saying joker wasn't really a great defensive player you know and a lot of respect to rachel had specter. But you know we live in a time right now national media where it's all about the most controversial a and to be honest with you a lot of these analysts they don't spend time watching games of some of these smaller market teams endeavor. You know unfortunately is a small market team that has arguably one of the best players in the you know the mpa on the roster and he is quarterbacking. This team especially with jamal. Murray i mean what nicola yokich has done this season i have never seen this type of dominance and just the way he makes it look He makes it look fun to play basketball. He makes fun to watch the nuggets because he's going to be back in a guy down in the post all of a sudden he's throwing a pass behind his head. We not even looking at the guy that's cutting and it's just these types of play that we see but he takes over a game and to be honest with you if if rachel nichols watched the nuggets game last night and said okay. Look this guy is not the mvp. I don't know if he's looking at nicoli. Yokich has taken over. And if he were playing for a like the los angeles lakers he was playing for the miami heat. Or even you know even philadelphia. He would be the unanimous. Mvp already crown hint today but because he plays him denver. Denver doesn't get that respect and and that's something that bothers me and we see it with the officiating mean for nicola yokich if you take a look at his arms and how read and how cut they are all the time and i'm thinking to myself how in the heck can't they get this guy to the free free choline. More the amount of contact he takes. He's only averaging two to three. Maybe four free throws per game. That is a travesty. And michael malone i. i love the. He got jackie that one time because he was sick. I mean i don't think there's any more than You know we're mad. But i don't think there's anybody is mad about the whole situation that michael malone so The nuggets they're in a really unique position right now and regardless of how the season goes with them. Especially with jamal. being out I you know. I really hope the yokich wins the mvp. He deserves it. And it's gonna bring a lot of respect denver in it's gonna make people free agents says. Hey i'll go play with that guy. That's what denver needs and endeavors. Got the perfect guy to be able to recruit people to denver. Yeah i think you're right. It's going to bring so much respect. Not just not not just even to the nuggets. I mean the state of colorado sports scene in colorado. But yeah you steph is doing some phenomenal things. But the bottom line is is right now. Golden state's at nine. If this were a regular year he'd be on the outside looking in the nba cody. So it's not like the nfl. One guy can make the difference and steph curry's only making a difference for golden state to be a nine team right now jokers gone denver's probably one of the worst teams in the league especially with jamal. Murray out about to most valuable player to take yokich off the nuggets would be very very poor. They would be very bad basketball team. That won yokich comes out of games and the bench. Bench gives up a lot of points because they can't they have nobody to really help out. And i i wished your bill mcgee would get more playing time Behind the because he's sizable he just hustle guys. Got this energy good lear. He's been around for quite some time. But we you know with With yokich steph curry. Does he make everybody around him. Better in the way that nicole. Yoga's think so because you get that border yokich in the post. You're gonna have a double team come over. Who's got the best vision. Well yokich scott greg. He's gonna find the open man but then he's also gonna have the effort on the defensive side of me. It is a two man game jamal. Murray healthy he and yokich they've nippy late so many nba teams with the pick. And roll. i. I just don't understand why he's not giving the respect he deserves and i can't even believe there are people out there that actually believe that. Joel embiid has maybe candidate. He's a great player. But come on folks. let's get real here. He didn't even stay healthy and he's been ducking yokich ever since. Yoke that game winner in his face last year. This is i. I don't know what it is but you know we we talk about big markets. Whatever thought the field off is gonna ever become a big mark in basketball. Yeah maybe it is. But it just baffles me man but nicole yoga in the nuggets. Continue to find a way to prove the naysayers wrong. Yeah i love it man. I love it i and again you look at some of these teams without their. Mvp's they were able to stay afloat. Philadelphia's still able to stay on the top of the eastern conference standings brooklyn. same case. The lakers i think dropped one spot. So it's mind boggling to me my friend cody. What are you have force man that we could check out. I love your passionate about the nuggets but especially love what you put together day in day out for the broncos and of course your nfl coverage yeah. Well you know the cool thing about me and the nuggets actually nuggets fan. I have no. Nfl no phantom to any nfl team which is great because allowed me to really objective but when it comes denver nuggets i m emotional as can be sometimes people like hey this is a different side of never seen of you put a pro football. Pfm daily we put that together at the biggest stories on the social media and sixty five and and right now in the lockdown broncos pocket and we're preparing for the draft but by now the ultimate mock draft twenty twenty one these ongoing here on the network. The broncos were on the clock in today's episode. And we wanted selection and not. Many people have even mocked denver. So go and take a listen on your favorite podcasts provider. The or commit mock draft twenty twenty one. That is what they call them. The industry at t's right there cody. I'm going to check that out. I want to see what you guys are up to always appreciate your time my friend and we'll look we'll reach out again next week as we get closer and we can and then we'll eventually talk about what the broncos actually did at number nine so i always always great stuff from you my friend. Absolutely thank you so much looking forward to it. Cody rourke of pro football network and okay. I wanna see i wanna see what he picked there. I wanna see what he did with number nine there. Yeah colfax i tweeted out last night to rachel nichols and i do want to say this. I've been rachel nichols fan forever. She is awesome at what she does her coverage even in nfl cover sheet but now she's really nba. She does a great. I'm an nba fan. So she does a great job of really bringing light to the nba. So this is all like not life or death stuff here. This is sports arguing right. It doesn't really matter doesn't mean we hate each other. I don't know rachel but she tweeted me back so i was like okay all right. I've arrived yet. I only get second in the damn. cb and okay. that's fine colfax. i said hey. Rachel rachel nichols joker worthy enough for your mvp so she writes back and says hey brady i never pick an mvp before the end of the season. All right but you certainly haven't picked him. You aren't saying you said he's the favorite have you because you kind of deleted that by saying there. We gotta judge of the defensive side of the ball. There's another side of the court so that has to matter also and again that is not a knock on nickel yolk again. When you say that's not a knock or you say no offense it's offense and it is a knock. His defense is good. He's not great. But put steph curry up against nicole. Yokich who's winning that matchup. I mean it. it's all about yeah jokers. Not gonna be able to guard steph curry out on the three point line. Curry's not gonna be able to garner call yokich inside. It's joker does good enough job against pigment. she goes on. But as i've said so many times i've lost count. Nicola is number one ridiculously good like insanely amazing number. Two the mvp favourite right now number three not so far ahead. It's okay to pretend they're zero others in the conversation. Okay she goes on to three tweet. I mean she's had more one on one interviews with steph curry. Then we've had shows seems like at this point she. She retweeted her with steph. Curry on april sixteenth last night saying seems like a good time to riposte this. Just saying his scoring streak everything. He's done If you really think. Now i've had. I'm going to do this as a poll question tomorrow if you had to choose the better player. Who's the better player steph curry and nicola yokich. That will be a poll question tomorrow so write it down in your notebooks. You're hogging notebooks that you guys keep with you. That's what we're gonna ask. But she's gone on tweeting about this guy i am. Rachel nichols twitter right now. I see nothing about nicole. Yokich just forty seven points. Last night. I see a story about kobe. Bryant i see to re posts of story of steph curry Another steph curry steph. And seth chatting it up mid game. That's one of her posts D- i again a lot of respect for but she's part of the national media lakers jazz. The rematches tonight. That was a tweet has steph currys and saint fire streak wrapped up first team all nba birth steph. Curry again zion. Zion another superstar favourite not earned one thing in the nba jalen suggs. Okay sucks going to the nba. That's a big story k. J. jason tatum has reentered the The chat steph curry again. Getting ready to watch steph. Curry live is one of the most fun things in basketball. I don't see one thing about nicola. Yokich on rachel nichols one of the most respected admired. Mba report. And you're saying that you're jokers the favorite and that. He's an amazingly ridiculously good and all that jazz. Where is the proof is in the pudding colfax. And it's putting flavor is steph curry and anything else that is not nicola yokich so no sorry. Saying i'm not gonna take anything away from nicole yokich but this is about defense. This is about defense. You are taking it away from him because nicola yokich doesn't fit your model of who should be the. Mvp steph curry. Does he shoots three pointers you. You should be able to dunk or shoot three pointers. All the time joker shoots three pointers but not like curry. And he doesn dunk that often so he doesn't fit your mold. He doesn't self promote. He doesn't do twitter. He doesn't do facebook he doesn't do sell. He doesn't do national media interviews. He doesn't fit your mold because he's not good for your ratings. I had someone tweeted. We love seeing finger rolls and passes. Okay then what you should. You're you're a fan of bad basketball. Then go watch. James harden get fouled. The line. i for one. I'm not a home run guy. Does the home run. I'd rather see a great pitch. I'd rather see a great play from josh tasr cousin or trevor story. I'd rather see a great play from those guys. That a homerun. I'd rather see what nicole yokich does with his mind looking around and spider webbing and using his teammates to his advantage. Then steph curry. Just shooting three. I'm not taking away. Curry's fun to watch. He's a blast to watch. He's lethal. he's mike. I'm more terrified of steph curry than anybody in the nba. For the nuggets. Go against but let's not pretend that you're just casually missing out on adding nicole yokich to your mvp vote you keep saying it. You keep tweeting me. You keep tweeting. Keep one time. You keep tweeting nuggets fans and saying. Hey i'm tired of this. keep saying. Where's the proof i watch. Espn for an hour this morning steph curry steph curry trevor lawrence. Nfl draft steph curry commercial commercial commercial. Commercial it's frustrating. Forty two minutes after the hour will jump out of here. Let's get the latest on local sports flash party northern colorado's forks thirteen ten kfi k. The block party wednesdays from four to ten pm. Hey it's bogus. Cbs sports radio. You're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfta now not the clearcut favor favorite right now. Newly good text here. So funny thing just happened so rachel nichols started off her. Show the jump talking about. You guessed it the nuggets and said very nice things about them. Brady see what you did with that tweet. Yesterday you started a revolution. I like that. i like that text. That's a good one. Yokich thought shot thirty. One time only had six free throws but she did say today. That yokich was the favourite. She she did. She is saying that. Listen she saying it but she has a hard time saying she saying both sides of the ball need to be judged here and it's not a knock on yokich but we. So what are you saying if we do judge the ball. Basov be judged on defense. That joker wouldn't be you knowing that they're not going to do that. Saying basically hey it's not a knock on nicole yokich by listen. I know i'm probably blowing this thing overboard and again i do have the utmost respect for h. Nicole's she's awesome loved her coverage for years But i just i. This is part of the espn model. And she's part of that. She's a part of that. Beast the evil empire man. That's what it is. They take five or six stories and they beat them to death. Jamal murray also being a good player he had some famous moments in the bubble but it was also very much about the The social justice stuff and espn crew jumped right on it. That's like a magnet. that was. Oh there's the guy fifty points and he's about social justice here. We go ratings galore. Let's get after it. Jamal murray goes way and that doesn't solidify jokers. Mvp race even more. I know fifteen games left but not lots going to change in the next fifteen games jokers going to be the mvp. If he doesn't the nba's ridiculous forty nine minutes after the hour will wrap up on the other side. We'll get to closing thoughts and what's on tonight. It's the whole show powered by saturday.
