Thank you for an amazing year in Minnesota. Seems like a genuinely nice guy, best of luck in Denver.

Cousins was the bigger-splash acquisition, but that's a steep price tag. He's good but not PFM good. Keenum seems to be the smarter move as now we can use the fifth pick on another position -- I'm guessing Quenton Nelson as I doubt Barkley would be available at #5.

Hmm- Keenum to Denver, Taylor to Browns.  Cousins has to be getting worried he's going to spend the next season holding up a cardboard sign outside of ESPN headquarters reading "Redskins veteran.  Will pass for food.  Goodell bless"

/This would be the second-to-worst scenario for Cousins

Depends on the contract details, but I'm probably ok with this too if it's a short term deal. They are still likely drafting a QB if they stay at #5.

I'm hearing it's a 2 yr deal worth $36 million. I think the price is a bit high, but the length is perfect

Signing Cousins would have forced some really painful cuts/trades to make room for the draft class. I'm really okay with this signing. Consider me whelmed.

Ow! That was my feelings!: Elway and Kubiak apparently like Mayfield. :/


I keep getting that feeling, too. There's also been reports of Denver trading up to the #1 spot so they can get their guy. I'm not sold on Allen (looked really pedestrian against good opponents like Iowa), I don't know enough about Rosen/Darnold.

Can't blame that game entirely on him. The entire team quit halfway through the playoff game in Minneapolis. They just got obscenely lucky on the whiff-six.

As a Bronco's fan all I can say is HELL YES.

Not that I am a huge fan of Keenum nor do I see him doing great things in Denver.  I just wanted the Broncos out of the Cousins auction.  Statistically speaking Keenum and Cousins are pretty much the same QB.

Now listen here Elway.  I know that it's tempting to use that #5 pick and go out and buy a shiny new toy but for our sake please for the love of all that's holy please draft the OG from Notre Dame...

I'd be ok with that, too. Keenum for two years seems ideal to bridge to the next QB. I'm still curious about what we have with Chad Kelly. The guy would have been a first/second-rounder if he wasn't a head case at Ole Miss.

Amazing might be a little strong. Just because it ended with a thud doesn't mean the rest of the season wasn't fantastic. Plus we got this..

img.fark.netView Full Size

which was pretty farking beyond amazing.

As for Keenum in Denver, it's probably a good fit for both. Case is not going to put up gaudy numbers and he's not going to put the team on his back and win games. Denver has a solid defense and some good receivers, which will help Case as it did in Minnesota.
I haven't followed, but has Denver addressed their O-line at all? Hard for any QB to have success when they're running for their life.

That's the question. Elway and Joseph are obviously looking at Keenum as a bridge QB. If Barkley is there at #5, though, I'd take him, no question. You then either see if Lynch turns the corner and decides to play like he's supposed to, or look to next year to draft a QB. Or maybe Keenum has turned a corner and will be a Jake Plummer, solid, but rarely great.

The defense has fallen apart a bit. Still top 10, maybe top 5, but we just traded Talib to the Rams. I expect that Elway and company thought his age was going to start catching up to him, and at $11 million this year, it was time to move on. I don't know if the secondary will still be as good.

They've tried. Bolles looks like he should be pretty good, he got beat a few times, held a lot, but he was a rookie. Paradis was good, but there was a revolving door everywhere else. Nelson at #5 would be another good draft choice.

This gives them so many options though. Say they go get Quenton Nelson and the o-line starts to fall in place. If it's working they can always try and extend Keenum.

Totally agree. There are a ton of options on the table now. Osweiler is a FA, so don't need to worry about him. Siemian has drawn trade interest from Atlanta to backup Ryan. Lynch has trade interest in Arizona, supposedly (although I don't think he's as bad as people think). And Denver still has Chad Kelly, who would have been a 1st or 2nd rounder if he hadn't been a head case. It'll be yet another interesting offseason.

Case Keenum is responsible for 7 of the points the Eagles scored. My so called elite defense is responsible for ALL the rest of it. D-Line full of top played players? No sacks. Linebackers like Barr who think they are elite? Consistently out of position. Corners? Everyone BUT Rhodes got torched. Safeties which include Harrison Smith? Consistently in position or getting run the fark over (roughly:43 in):

So yeah. Did Keenum help? Nope. If we had Kirk Cousins would we have done better? Probably. We might have even scored 14! The defense, the backbone and heart of this team, were overmatched and overwhelmed and THAT is why we got destroyed.

If the 2 years, $36 million is actually the contract, that is great for the Broncos. Most of the guaranteed money will likely be in the 1st year, making him a one year rental. They will definitely take a QB at #5 and they still will have some cash to spend it FA this year.

He was on IR for the season with his knee injuries. He was practicing by the end of the season, but since Denver was well out of the playoff race, there was no reason for him to be activated.

When things are going good, or the skins have a decent lead, Cousins is highly accurate, bold and mobile.  When the Game starts getting close, and all he needs is a few decent drives to eat clock,  his balls go sailing into the dirt, he takes sacks and throws picks.  Almost every time.

I don't think there are glaring holes in it. Siemian proved you need at least an average QB to win in the NFL. Manning may have been a corpse of himself his final season, but he played smart, and didn't turn the ball over. Siemian couldn't do that, so the defense couldn't play nearly as aggressively. If Keenum can at least keep the games close, I'm expecting good things this year.

This Broncos fan is in favor of using the first round pick to improve the offensive line.  Yeah, it would be a good idea to get a QB to develop and use Keenum for a couple of years, but it won't matter if you get the best QB if the protection isn't there.  Unless they want Lamar Jackson because they decided if the QB is going to have to run for his life, then get one capable of it.

Cousins was the bigger-splash acquisition, but that's a steep price tag. He's good but not PFM good. Keenum seems to be the smarter move as now we can use the fifth pick on another position -- I'm guessing Quenton Nelson as I doubt Barkley would be available at #5.

The D has holes in it then size of Cleveland at this point. You'd think that they'd look at their SB team--a stellar D, mediocre O, and try to reproduce that instead of insisting a QB wins championships.


The Broncos are building a stellar Defense, it's just unfortunate that it's for the Rams.

Jim from Saint Paul: Ow! That was my feelings!: Myk-House of El: This Broncos fan is in favor of using the first round pick to improve the offensive line.  Yeah, it would be a good idea to get a QB to develop and use Keenum for a couple of years, but it won't matter if you get the best QB if the protection isn't there.  Unless they want Lamar Jackson because they decided if the QB is going to have to run for his life, then get one capable of it.

FWIW, Nelson, the Norte Dame guard, is supposedly a 'bust-proof' 10 year starter. That would work for me.

As was Matt Kalil when we got him.

That lasted 1 season.


Sure. There are no guarantees in the draft. That's why I used multiple qualifiers in my statement. Personally, taking a guard that high would be tough to stomach. I'd be shocked if the Broncos don't take a QB and it sounds like Elway wants Mayfield.

Well, given Elway's draft performance so far, I'm sure Johnny Football 2.0 will work out fine for the team.

Signing Cousins would have forced some really painful cuts/trades to make room for the draft class. I'm really okay with this signing. Consider me whelmed.

Ow! That was my feelings!: Elway and Kubiak apparently like Mayfield. :/

I keep getting that feeling, too. There's also been reports of Denver trading up to the #1 spot so they can get their guy. I'm not sold on Allen (looked really pedestrian against good opponents like Iowa), I don't know enough about Rosen/Darnold.

Quinn Mallory? I guess he could find a dimension where Bledsoe didn't get hurt, and Brady ended up selling real estate.
