"Hey, there was a lot of stuff to talk about. I mean, a lot of things happen in college sports. He had all sorts of crazy, wacky things. We talked about Dallas to start the show. You look at, um, how embarrassing things were for the Lions on Thanksgiving. We talked about that, but Everything that happened today. It is just out of control and out of control is really the way to describe it because Here's what we're dealing with right now. Is you look around the NFL and the covert situation has suddenly gotten dramatically more urgent. There's all sorts of we had three different developments all happened today. All across the NFL's. You have three different teams, three different situations, all of them getting to a point where the NFL is now being forced. Little bit towards the brink now where all of this starts. Is in Denver. So Denver's in a really fascinating situation, right? I mean, you wouldn't generally expected because Let's be honest. I thought Denver be a lot of fun going into the season. They're generally and UN remarkable team. Trulock was hurt when he's been healthy. He hasn't really been that good. It's just been disappointing now. Here's where things get really unique for Denver. Here's why Denver today's is suddenly a big deal. Denver Is going to believe it or not. Play a game on Sunday. Without a quarterback, they will not have a quarterback now. This was a bit of a surprise to Vic Fangio because here's the thing earlier today earlier on Saturday, I should say Saturday because it's the morning show, so we're gonna count. This is Sunday, but On Saturday. Vic Fangio asked about the quarterbacks, whether or not he'll have one of them available, or maybe three of them available. Here's the Vic Fangio said. Well, They're in the meetings there more than 6 ft. Apart from each other So if you're more than 6 ft, apart from each other, you don't show up on the contact tracing Has a contact. You know, it's when you're With them 6 ft or less. That it would show up so all our meetings were set up. Where everybody spread out. Yes. Oh, that's a nice sentiment, but apparently the NFL didn't see it that way. So here's the problem that Denver's in right now is they had a quarterback Jeff Driskel. He gets positive for covert. He test positive Now, all of the other quarterbacks were in the room with him now, while they were 6 ft. Apart is Vic Fangio said the thing that he didn't note and maybe the thing that he Horribly overlooked was the idea that those guys those quarterbacks and this is drew lock. This is Mark. It's Brett ripping, right? I always want to say Mark ripping, but it's Brett ripping. And then it's Blake Bortles. Miss Blake. Uh, All of those guys were in the same room is Jeff Driskel 6 ft Apart, maybe more. No masks indoors. And so the NFL lifted that it goes well, those guys they're high risk They can't play. So now Denver they find out on Saturday that they have to play football game against the New Orleans Saints to play. The Saints Saints are really good. Taysom Hill or not, The states are really good, and they've got to go into that game without a quarterback who is playing quarterback for the Denver Broncos. That's a hell of a question. Well, let me tell you his name is Kendall Hinton now? Kendall hidden on the practice squad. Okay. Practice squad quarterback. It's I mean, it's bad. It's not horrible. Why would you say there's no quarterback? Well, actually, he's a wide receiver that that's the problem that Denver's run into here they have. Hey, Practice squad wide receiver who played a little bit of quarterback at Wake Forest, and by the way, the numbers that I was looking over them, not great. He's going to suddenly be thrown into starting at quarterback within 24 hours against the states, and I feel so bad for that kid and we'll talk about him later. Royce Freeman, who's a back of running back for the Broncos will now he is the backup quarterback. So that's Denver. Now, by the way again There's three incidents that are going on in the NFL right now. So the Denver Broncos playing a game tomorrow without a starting quarterback, with no real quarterback to speak of That's one of the few things that the NFL is dealing with right now. And with this just being the one element in itself of having a professional team play professional game without a professional quarterback, you might ask the question. Should the NFL continue to play? Should they pause? Should they stop? One of the things that's been brought up? Is that maybe you take a week off? Get back to it. Is that what they should do? Is that the right answer. Just based on the idea that Denver alone Doesn't have a quarterback. Should they play this? Should they take the week off? Should they just stopped? 855 to 1 to 4 to 270 again. That's one of three things. Let's go with option item number two because Right now. San Francisco. They don't have a home stadium. This is a fun one. Here's what happened is Santa Clara County, which is where the 40 Niners are located out in California. They've decided to set some restrictions. Now, here's a member of the county talking about the restrictions. His name is James Williams and how this impacts the 40 Niners. For professional collegiate and youth sports. All recreational activities that involve physical contact or close proximity with persons outside of one's household, including all contact sports will be temporarily prohibited. So there we go. The 40 Niners cannot play in their own county can play. So now they gotta find somewhere else to go. Um, luckily, unlike the Broncos, who just figure out that they have to build an entire playbook around a guy who's been playing wide receiver and is now playing quarterback and have to do that in less than 24 hours, without the ability to get together and actually practice anything, um, of feeding itself. Luckily, the 40 Niners They're on the road this week. They're playing the Rams. They're going to l A. So they've got a week to figure these things out. But you do have with Denver. No quarterback. You now have another team that in a week. He's going to have a home game and no home. So what you do right? That's a very complicated, messy, ugly situation will get a little bit more into San Francisco later in the show, But that is something the NFL's dealing with Now that just popped up today. So again. Should the NFL continue to play Should they stop? Should they pause? What should they do? That's a messy situation, right is something that was ugly to begin, with, unheard of to begin with. Is. There's enough times we look at a team we go like who's starting this week? That guy starting wealth that's they really don't have a starting quarterback. You know she could make those jokes all you want, but there's literally no quarterback in Denver. So when you pile that up with San Francisco Is that enough to pause this season? The NFL season? Is that enough to stop the NFL season should they keep playing? And here's the third element. Is you have the Steelers and the Ravens now What you've seen over the past couple of days is the game's been moved. It was supposed to be Thursday, obviously was going to be Thanksgiving game eight o'clock that game got moved. It was pushed to Sunday. Now that game's been pushed to Tuesday, but it's gotten dicier. When you look at that game here. Here's what happened. Baltimore today or again Saturday because this is the morning show. Baltimore. Had six more cases that got added to the covert less. Six more players were listed as having Cove ID for the Ravens. No, God, please. No, no, That's not the feeling because here's the unbelievable thing about all of this right? They can't feel a full roster right now. If you get every player on the practice squad, every player on the regular 50. What Well, is it 55 Man Roster now, did they bump it Either way, whatever the regular roster number is They only have 52 players. 52. That's it. They have 52 players available to them right now. That's today, you know, And who knows the game's Tuesday. Let's see where it goes. Let's you who's actually available. And also you now have a member of the Steelers were James Conners tested positive. So you've got 18 Ravens. You've now got a stealer They're supposed to play on Tuesday. Who knows where That's gonna go there, pushing that game as far as they can. They might have to cancel that game. That's the last thing the NFL wants to do. But when you pile all of that up the 18 cases in Baltimore the case that just pops up in Pittsburgh when you pair that with San Francisco not having a home stadium to play in when you pair that up with Denver, not having an actual active, real quarterback ready, too. Go for this game on Sunday against the Saints. All three of those things together isn't enough to pause the season or stop the season. 55 Yeah, 855212. 4 to 27. That's how he joins show and for me. They play. They play..
Denver Broncos WR Kendall Hinton could be QB vs. New Orleans Saints

"All in on Brian Hoyer versus Jeff Driskel. I know. I'm so I know we're all very, very disappointed. That Jeff Driskel will not face Brian Hoyer. Not One other thing I wanted to get to here off the top. Talk about CSU, and that investigation coming to an end does not seem like any significant punishment or changes will come from this. As for the other college team that's not Air Force. Good news on the front of actually getting seeyou out onto the field, you know? By now that 18 to 22 year olds in Boulder could not be trusted. And see you couldn't practice. Well, not on Ly is the plan that see you has submitted to the public health officials. Getting rave reviews. But also they had said Initially. Because the order was set to expire. I believe today. They said that the football team was going to be exempt if they decided they needed to extend this order. And not let 18 to 22 year olds gather. They were going to make the football team exempt. However, they still had to put together a proposal they did, and reports out of boulders say that it was well received. So now see, you will be able to get out onto the field. As will Most of the Pac 12. I think there's still some issues going on in California, but At least see you will be resuming their preparations for the season opener, which we now know will be used on November 7th. 5 to 2987 to take your thoughts on the Broncos game game moved to Monday. Does that mean that we'll see Locke versus Cam Cam versus Brett Rip in Brent Rippen versus Jared Stadium. Or maybe just maybe. I'll be this guy. I mean, who knows? Could be Blake Bortles.

"Classic nickname humor. Everybody knows that Mark is short or interchangeable for Brett. If you Brett ripping you gotta love the confidence your head coach has in you. Not always. He butchering your name when he announces that you're going to start, but he throws in there that he might play Jeff Driskel as well. You know, because Jeff Driscoll is such a potent offensive weapon. You can't keep this guy off the field. Awesome. Good stuff. Is the thing with all due respect to Brett, which means that Brett is about to be unduly disrespected, but with all due respect To Brett.

"Is our first story right now. That's the main focus. Focus for me this week is just try to get better these next two days. That is the starting quarterback of your Denver Broncos. Brett rip in You will get the start Big Fangio officially announced today against the Jets on Thursday. I have no problem with the Selection. Of Brett Rip in Provides a little bit more intrigue. I think To Thursday night's game. Not that anything can really save Thursday night's game. And from a viewership standpoint by here locally, I think Brett rip in Because of the unknown. Mountain West guy, you know. Variety of reasons. Right ribbons a little bit more interesting, not saying he's going to be better. Dan Jeff Driskel. More interesting. But what this underscores For the Denver Broncos is that they made it absolute terrible decision for their backup quarterback. I mean, how do you In an offseason where Cam Newton was available where Andy don't was available where Jamis Winston was available. You picked Jeff Driskel. You tried to sell us on the idea that Jeff Ter a school was the perfect backup quarterback. To drew arc that if something happened to drew lock, you would be supremely confident that Jeff Driskel could filling fast for not even two full games later. Done. Done, Zo.

"Saw two games of Jeff Driskel. And said, We've seen enough And now they're going to let Brett rip and start on Thursday. Two games. And this was the guy that John Elway Tried to sell everyone on Jeff Driskel's the right back up for this team and after two games, one of which it in play bad. Unemployed, bad against Pittsburgh unnecessarily. He got sacked a bunch and hit a bunch, but the Broncos were right there in that game, And then, of course, he doesn't perform well at all against Tampa, but that's all it took. To move on to Brett ripping So was Jeff Driskel the entire time the right guy to backup Drew Ock. I think the Broncos actions speak louder than their words in that regard. And look for the record. I believe this is the right call. I'm not the guy that tried to sell people on the idea of Jeff Driskel. This is the right call. Because at least with Brett rip in, you have a little bit of unknown. You have a little bit of potential. Not that Jeff Driscoll is a 10 Year veteran, but We've seen a whole lot more of him than we've seen of Brett Ribbon. So why not? Jeff Jury school.

"88 days till Christmas. There you go. And what happened to Christmas? I have no idea. It's maybe there's another big box. No big present open up for next season member. We talked about Christmas Big present. All right, let's get into it. It's uh, it's time to take the field. It's four o'clock and it's time for football and four got football four away. Four man Rush Driscoll looks throws the ball catches made. Patrick spins around and walks into the end zone. Touchdown. Denver seven yard strike from Jeff Driskel, a nice catch and tight spend by Tim Patrick Patrick's first touchdown reception of the season. Man. Oh, man, did they need that 14 seconds left in the first half of this is a 3rd 13. Tampa brings pressure. They do Six man pressure. Just go on the endzone steps away, And now he's going to hit the sack. And that will be two points for the Buccaneers dot bowls is just not gonna let you sit back and count the house so Tampa Bay. With the endzone sack. That was Shaquille Barrett. Former Bronco You know he wants to come here and perform. That's his second sack of the game. It sure looks like ripping will be coming in for the Broncos. Driscoll's got his helmet off. Ripped and ready to go in there. They haven't been able to get anything going on offense safe late drive in the first half, which is a 75 year touchdown drug. Other than that the longest drive put together today by the Broncos has been 37 yards. There'll be a casino Pulitzer. It looks like everybody is coming. They rushed six, ripping sets and throws a pass intercepted in the end zone and brought out to 10 15 20 still knocked down the 30 yard line. That ball intercepted by Mike Edwards safety. And that effectively went first time, by the way. Heard, uh, Dave.

"On top of what Geico could already save you. So what are you waiting for? Visit Geico dot com to learn more. Five games going on right now, and the Panthers have extended their lead midway through the fourth quarter in L. A, where Chuck Hayes is standing by. Thanks Rich 6 39 remaining in the football game. The Panthers 21, the Chargers 10. It's been five field goals for Joey Slye, the latest At 11 02 remaining in the football game. A 31 yard field goal that Dr took eight plays. 62 yards took 5 14 off the clock earlier, the Chargers have rallied Score. 10 points. Michael badly chipped in three of those on a 41 yard field goal can play 37 Yard Drive for 34 off the quad. Justin Herbert, currently driving Chargers down He sustained a slight injury came out of the game and Eastern stick. The third string quarterback pressed into duty on the North Dakota state came in Chargers took a time out, Herbert was able to regain his composure come back into the football game, but right now The Chargers are driving with 604 remaining in this football game. They have a situation where they need a touchdown to Ah, Bring the game close. But as right now it is second in 10 from the your own 20 yard line down 21 10 6 minutes remaining in the football game. All right, so they need a field goal and a touchdown with a two point conversion in order to tie this one with six minutes left on the march, let's set out to Ah! Oh, Andy Green in the desert right now, where the Cardinals have finally pulled in front and the Cardinals did plot in front. The last time we talked college way, just 30 reception, But there isn't a defense held Detroit to a field goal. Then Mary got the ball back. 11 Place 75 yard drive that company with a four yard touchdown pass to Andy Isabella is about second touchdown grab of the game. And a surgeon is Korean one touchdown all of last season. The second season two today that Cardinals have the lead 23 2 20. The Lions have the ball facing a second intent from their own 10 yard line as we enter the fourth quarters, So the Cardinal's up three heading in before, All right, thank you very much, and the Cardinals finally getting in gear. It has been a rough day for Kyla Murray, but he has hooked up with Andy Isabella twice. And that is the difference right now. Keep getting tougher for the Jets as the Colts just piling it on and not much they could do about it. But the Seahawks, also in front by AH by two touchdowns right now, against the Cowboys, midway through the third quarter in Seattle. The Buccaneers defense has really done a great job. It has not been about Tom Brady. Today. It has been about the books defense. Just crushing Jeff Driskel throughout the day, and they have a 15 point lead as well. But right now, Carolina on top by a score of 21 to 10 5.5 minutes left in the fourth quarter, but the Chargers facing a first and goal from the 20 yard lines, but times certainly becoming a factor. Jody this five minutes love they need the ball twice and I need to get they got they got to get. They've got to get everyone going. Teddy Bridge border has been what Teddy Bridgewater can be rather efficient. He's not gonna pick your part. He's not going to go up top and throw for 3 50. But he's going to hit a high percentage of his passes, which is going to give his team the time of possession battle and, Ah, it's actually pretty close in this game. But when the charges have Needed the ball back Ted. He's been able to grind out first down. So Justin Herbert up against it a little bit here. Game's not over because as you mentioned there within 11 in, which is a two score game to punk Aborigine, plus a touch unpleasant to and a field goal, so this one still hangs in the balance. Potato Bridgewater has done a hell of a job today, keeping that Carolina offense moving without their biggest weapon, Mr McCaffrey. Alright, let's head out to Kevin Shockey in Seattle right now. Well, guys, a common talking point going into this season has been the Russell Wilson never received an MVP vote. It's a dumb point, but it is true. I bring it up because Russell Wilson is doing things that no quarterback has ever done this year and might very well be on his way to his first. He has at least four touchdown passes and each of his first three games and here's the list of players that have done that in NFL history. Russell Wilson That's it. He has 198 yards in those four touchdowns today. Tyler Lockett, the main beneficiary with seven cats, is for 79 yards and three touchdowns. All of them in the first half day came a calf three captains for 81 yards and would have a touchdown. But he had the ball poked out of his hand at the one yard line for what would have been a 63 yard touchdown catch instead of 62 yard catch and a trouble out of the back of the end zone for a touchback. Zeke Elliott has had a terrible day. 18 carries in the 18 yards on 11 carries one cat's fur loss of four yards. His one yard touchdown run about the only thing making it not a terrible day overall. So with six minutes and 26 seconds left in this third quarter, the sea officer leading the Cowboys 30 15, Alright, thank you very much. Kevin Shockey in Seattle. That said, too. Bruce Morton in Denver right now the Buccaneers, adding to their lead Freidrich. We've got one of three left in the third quarter and the pewter people are lading 25 to 10. Tom Brady is thrown three touchdown passes, one to Chris God went to to Mike Evans both of those touchdowns from a yard out. Adding to the box point total this quarter is former Bronco Shack. Barrett, the linebacker who sacked Jeff Driskel in the end zone for a safety. Barrett has two sacks on the day. Driscoll, one touchdown 14 of 24 for 157 Brady 24 of 37 for 271 and six of those catches today from Brady from Rob Gronkowski the Bucks or driving their on the Denver 18 trying to add on We've got 48 seconds to go in the third quarter 25 to 10, Tampa Bay, All right, and to Chuck a Z in L.

"Joining me now, Dave when it comes to the game plan for today, the differences between what Pat Shurmur and what patron was able to do it through locked versus what he's going to do with Jeff Driskel. I don't know if it's going to be significant, but I'm interested to see it. Yeah, I think Run. I think it will be fairly similar to tell you the truth. I mean, both of those quarterbacks or mobile. Driscoll was the guy that we talked about this this week when he when he came out of college at out of Louisiana Tech. He ran 45 something at the combine. So he's an excellent athlete. Much The same I think is drew lock him in that particular category. I think you want to try to get the ball out of his hands early against this Tampa Bay front. Uh, big and strong. They have an ability to rush the passer. They have six sacks in the first two weeks. And what you don't want to do. They also are in the top two or three teams, The NFL creating turnovers and you do not want to give this game to Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Obviously, by turning the ball over and allowing them to work on a short field is we're here and empower field at Mile high. We're actually going to have some fans here today, so it's going to be exciting in that regard. Red Brick Lewis, My color analyst joins me now, Rick, Of course, we've done two games one from empower field at mile high with virtually no fans. They had a few family members of the Bronco players and friends. But today with 5700, I would guess will, it least have a little bit of Juice. Legitimate juice in the stadium. Yeah, David. Not that I don't mind hanging out with you exclusively through the pandemic, but I got to say it's great to see some cars in the parking lot. Yes, people in the building. We got more cardboard cutouts here today. We'll talk about that later. And you have 5700 fans in the building. This is going to feel a lot more like a real football game today. I hope they make a lot of noise today and at least I hope this football team out a little bit because they need to get a win. Today. They get a win here today. You got a short week going to New York to play a Ah Bad Jets team And then everything would seem pretty good in the world of the Denver Broncos. So You know, I feel pretty optimistic about this game here today. I really do. I feel like this is no us. This is Noah Slama on drew lock, but I feel like Jeff Driskel Andrew lock Are about the same at this point of Drew locks career. I don't think you're losing much. With Jeff Driskel at quarterback here today. I think he's going to play as good as he played last week. And I think this football team's got a chance to win here today. I think that when you look at Tampa Bay and again, it's a small sampling. Certainly sample size with respect to some of the stats that the Buccaneers have been able to achieve. They were very good defense last year over 16 game regular season this was the top five defense. In several of the categories, But they've been tough to run against in the first couple of weeks, ranked fourth in the NFL, given up less than 85 yards per game in the ground as that mentioned their second or tied for fifth in interceptions. They're tied for third and fumble recoveries and second and takeaways. And so I think ball Security's going to be very, very important, and I think you've got a test. Tampa Bay's Front with your running game because you don't want to turn this into what the Broncos had to deal with last week in Pittsburgh, and that was throwing the ball a number of times and turning loose a very good pass rushing front. Yeah, it happens. Been really good against the run the last several years, So you have to test them today. That would really help Jeff Driskel today if the Broncos could run the ball, you know, Melvin Gordon is capable of doing that. Royce Freeman backup position. Philip Lindsey will not play today. You know Royce Freeman can carry the ball, too, if they can run the ball and play a clean, efficient game on offense. They got a real shot here today. I agree the Broncos and the Buccaneers. It's going to be a little bit cool cooler than we thought It might be for a late September kickoff temperatures in the high fifties when we kick it off just after two o'clock local time when we come back how the Broncos fared against Tom Brady over the years. You'll find out that and more next on the K O a Broncos radio network get away and.
"jeff driskel" Discussed on WEEI
"Spread the last four years there 22 7 against the spread in week three and the Jets fitted and and you know this look, a headline was about seven. So it's gone way up. And, you know, I helped my nose and I took the Jets. I grabbed 11.5 and I don't even want to watch it. But out of principle, I had to do it. The Buccaneers travel to Denver today. The Broncos are without drew lock. They'll be starting. Jeff Driskel instead seemed like the Buccaneers offense harder to get on track last week, but the Bucks were a big favorite six point favorite on the road at Mile High. Top ready actually is a losing record all time in Denver. He is four and seven. What do you think about the bucks? Lay in six today? I don't like it. I don't have a strong play on this game. But if I've leaned, I would take the Broncos in the points. I mean, I think Jeff Driskel consistently underrated as a backup. Hey, could move the team and Denver fights and keep it close and had a chance to win in Pittsburgh last week, so Yeah, if you force me, I take the point. I want to dissect this Chargers line because the Chargers have their rookie quarterback starting again. That would, of course, be Justin Herbert after the Tyrod Taylor disaster, where the team doctor accidentally punctured his lung last week, so Herbert played well in week in his first start in week two coming into week three, though the Chargers are nearly a touchdown favorite right now against the Panthers. They're 6.5 point favorite. What do you think about a young man getting his second start ever and already being favored by 6.5?.
Blake Bortles to sign with Denver Broncos as backup quarterback, per reports

"But you always have to be prepared for when that happens, and unfortunately Drew went down today and, you know my job is to give give the team a chance to win. And, um, you know, we just didn't get it done today, so we'll have to regroup. That's a good team that we played today and 40 teams. We just have to move forward and make those critical place at the end of the game. You have a couple of nice drives late in the third quarter. You guys were down 17 to 6. You go 65 yards in six places, and he had no offense with a nice little corner route on then you come back on the 54 year, driving five plays and find Melvin Gordon with a wheel route out of the backfield. I mean, it looked like, you know, I mean, this is a team that has led the league in sacks the last three seasons so they can put the mints pressure on any quarterback and they were able to get you on the ground seven times today. Yeah. I mean, we knew going into this week that they're good defense, but we also know that we have a good offense. We have good players. And, uh, you know some of those air some of those around me going to move around, get the ball out on time, especially when you're playing a really good team with the front that they have. And, Yeah, I just gotta find a way to get the ball out to my playmaker's hands. Like you like you mentioned. We do have playmakers all of the field. No doubt about that Last thing on, I thought because you were aware of the kind of athlete you are. How you could run the football. I thought a couple of times when you would empty that there might even be whether designed quarterback draw are just a way to get up in sight. That ever cross your mind with something like that, in terms of you just running the ball up into that defense. You know that with the flow of the game? That's just not. You know how things You know happen sometimes they happen. Naturally sometime. They're they're called plays, And I think there's probably one where I could scrambled for for a first down conversion and, Ah, you know, trying to scramble around to make a play? Sure, from the first half, But, yeah, I mean, that's part of the game. And sometimes those happen organically, and sometimes they're called. So, John With how today went. Those just didn't come up. I know you know what? I know. You never look it. Ah, loss is a good game, but I thought your performance was pretty dog going Good. So congratulations. Hang in there. We'll talk to you next week. Thanks. I appreciate you bet. Jeff Driskel quarterback 18 to 34 against the defence like that, Uh, 256 yards, two touchdowns. One pick. I will say this. I think the Steelers are great in the box. Not so sure about the back end of this defense and looking at them moving forward getting down into the season. We'll see. We'll see. But you're not going to run the ball much on them. I don't think and you're gonna have a hard time protecting with the back end. I'll say I'll wait and see on that. Yeah. And if Drew lock is out for a few games or so, I think You can win football games with Jeff Driskel. I'd think he showed you today that that is ah possibility with him. He played really well. He's got to feel good about how we played. Of course you want to win a game. But he's certainly played. He gave me a chance to win. They were in it all the way to the end. Yep, no, no doubt about that. We We thought we might get a chance to talk to drew lock.

"All right. Jordan Reed at J. Reed NFL with the draft network. Loved his breakdown. I like getting a little bit of the breakdown sometimes of a roster from kind of a bird's eye view. You get out of our little bubble, where here every single day watching the roster, and we have obviously intimate knowledge of what's going on here. The practice field right, But there's a perception about the team that tends to be pretty accurate most of the time once in a while, if you don't know a little bit more of the nuance that's happening out here. You can. You can missing things, But Jordan is a sharp is it gets every time we run into him there at the combine. We tend to get him on for A few minutes, So I like the way he kind of broke this down. As usual. It does kind of come back to how drew like plays this year. Why does it all hinges on how drew lock drives the Ferrari? You know they'd built the car around them. They put the engine in there. They put the flashy tires. They got the got the nice paint job. Now let's get out there and let's see how this thing. Yeah, let's see how good this driver is. You know, let's see how good this kid could They kid can drive the thing and so that's really where we're at with. This's his can drew lot pilot this craft. Into the playoffs. Can he pilot them into a win over the Kansas City Chiefs? Because let's be honest, if there are two things that this team has got to do this season. Those of them those of the goals. That's where you need to be. You have two goals. One beat Kansas City to make the playoffs, not necessarily in that order. It's refreshing by the way this year that we're not having to spend a lot of time on quarterback competitions or how the backup is looking. We talked about how Jeff Driskel looking, but ultimately, you know, he's the backup. He's not pushing on Drew lock and it's pretty evident when you're watching practice. Drew.

Harris was at all but TJ readers Shelby had too much pride recognizing the moment but the generator was acknowledge will get paid I mean in all fairness and if not I'm not trying to up sell birch I'm not I'm not denigrating the fact he wants to get paid secure the bag young man yeah but I mean something yeah well we we we we are but if you're comparing the bangles in the Broncos like like we think those are significantly different last of organization but you know from the outside looking in maybe a people say well it's two teams are missing the playoffs the last few years and yeah the bagels lease are gonna be getting the first overall pick in a new quarterback the Broncos might have found the guy in the drew and drew lock but from the outside looking in I mean how tractor for the Broncos that's a good question I think what you need to see is you need to see Durlach go out there and prove to the league this year then he's a guy you want to play with you know I think it's what is it internally we know that we we saw the spark you know we we saw you know how everybody reacted we saw how this team turned around once he got under center there was there was a magic there there is that factor was there it was palpable and we saw that rigorously didn't see that maybe because the Broncos weren't prime time but you'd see like we thought they did see a roasting the Houston Texans lighten up on the Chargers the first half before they scaled it back on it you know yeah so I I I think the only game that people remember is it really all that five game stretches probably a blizzard in Kansas city that was a poor showing so I think maybe would you like me to do is quite like the like the world on fire this year and show everybody and then some of these guys will have missed the boat now I feel like you're being a little bit too cavalier with the idea of it's not such a big deal to miss out on these free agents because it in one hand you're you're right in the sense that you don't want to overspend on as you put it to you spend eight plus money on B. plus town I I I understand that but on the other side of this thing you do need to fill some of these gaps in your roster before you hit the track did you and I both know that also you know this that that markets the talent level at defensive tackle star dry up a little bit my man little bit now the Broncos kind of fortunate I guess in that the kinds of defensive tackles they would need a very specific those tackles yep and they D. ends that they need are actually regular defensive tackles you know in life and body take Isaac can move carried away so given what given what they're looking for that the market is in that drive now some of the some of the top tier names to come off the board but there are still some big names out there that that could resonate there are some guys out there that could be somebody you're looking for I still think Michael Pierce the guy they need to look at I know Mike Pierce was a guy who got sent home for being fat out of shape leisure I know that in a country I know I hear you but I also know when he's on how good he is and so maybe for the Broncos you get him on a sweetheart deal and bring him in and then you can look for somebody else you know you can look to us to somebody to play that end position maybe even bring somebody that maybe bring both back when you make a Bronco for life yes you have got a few extra Bucks that you save right I get somebody like that and you bring their quilt backing you hysteric wants to be here right but Derek also wants to be respected and there's there's a number that's respectful because there are other offers out there there can go cash it in and play with it and play with the Bengals eagle cash it in and play with the with the Arizona Cardinals but there doesn't want to go to those places his family doesn't want to travel so if it's me you know I I what I'm doing is I'm looking at Michael Pearson he's a brick wall nose tackles when you got the right guy to keep him in shape and if we don't think bill Cole are can't keep a guy in shape I don't know who can keep the weight off you know what else you could do is if they're cool decides to you know what I believe in I didn't get the money right off the bat I can get respect which I don't think it's gonna happen but if you did not make it so no no they've done a concert now no no no no can fit that role fits the archetype of the body type not manual likes he he doesn't want it I I know I I don't want to guide this team that has won I'm just saying if anybody could motivate you put bill Cole are out there with with Donna could sue and Michael Pierce and bring about Jones and they got Bradley Chubb and and invited others your age that's that's a pretty fearsome front five there was a man every team that is added indaba consumed jeeps try to talk themselves into what it Donna can sue could have or should have been what this what you know was early maybe this career but he's he's not that guy anymore well he's a different player than he was at that point when he was in under tackle get upfield penetrations will be different now he's got that guys like to like the evolution of Justin Smith over time you remember him well the forty three was even front end moved to kick became a thirty four and it became kind of a a blocker tie up guys still had great seasons by the way under Vic Fangio so I you know I just another name to kind of keep your eye out he's out there you could get him for a lot cheaper than you used to getting job corps is a guy who could be out there that you can get this pretty washed at this point this career but he's still got a you know he took a little bit left in him this is what's left this happens once a familiar names out of this is what happened because they may not be familiar with some of the other names this is what happens when they mess up I'd rather I'd rather have she'll be back I'd rather have Derek back if if the if this is what we're doing that's right rather continued with the pay the guys you already have yeah if if if we're talking about and Donna can sue the ghost of Donna can sue or the ghost of Gerald McCoy given my guys back well don't build those those guys have been through the worst hopefully we assume the worst of the Broncos and they're they're they'd like to probably see it on the.
