First imoressions: Chicago and Atlanta too low, NO too high (they get NFC East and Jets but schedule is otherwise brutal). I really do think Philly will suck. They seem like a mess right now. Maybe they will surprise.

Minnesota could be good which would hurt Chicago though. God, I cannot wait for Football Season.
u might be right on no chi and atl are wait and see

Schefter: Broncos' OT Ja'Wuan James suffered a season-ending torn Achilles working out today away from the team facility, per sources. James' $10 million salary for the upcoming season now is in jeopardy being that Denver no longer is obligated to pay him with him working out off site.

Me: That seems crazy in these Covid times...

It's part of a fight with the union. The Union asked guys not to go to "voluntary" OTAs, the league is playing up screwing James to beat the players into submission.

about the broncos this season

QB - right now i am assumeing no Rodgers this will be a 2-way race between teddy b and lock teddy would be better but i expect lock to start the first 2 or 3 games
RB another 2 horse race between gordan and Williams but Williams will be the starter by week 3 or 4 he has been compared to davin cook
WR/TE with jerdy poise for a year 2 jump Sutton back Patrick back and the speed f hamler this is a top 10 wr core and add in fant and albeit o
OL the weak spot Bolies is a good LT and reieser is ok the other 3 spots are worries unless mentnrz can start at C meri can play at rg or glascow can rebound and massy can hold up at rt
DL with Harris Purcell d jones they should be much better at run stopping but death is a worry
LB the strong point Denver has at least 6 or 7 good football players here Chubb and miller should have 10 sack this year Johnson is a hitter jewell and browning should rotate on the other ilb spot reed could be a shaq barret type in time
CB/S denver has 4 souild CB Calihahan can play the slot or outside darby a littie small but a num 2 type CB surtain ii will start by mid 2021 and fuller a num 1/2 type cb j simmons is the best S in the NFL had elway been GM i couild had seen elway refuse to pay him and bill stepping in to pay him instead of u signing Justin Millis u would had Simmons jackson is underrated

bottom line

without rodgers the celling on this team is the 7 seed and a 1st round loss with rodgers they are top 5 regardless denver has to upgrade in 2022 at qb and they are choies other than rodgers like

watson hurts if the eagles trade for watson tua if the dolphins trade for watson or jimmy g

to me denver needs to look at bring in jimmy g from SF after 2021 if the rodgers price is too much or Hou wants too much for much for watson

denver choies shouild be this

1 rodgers if they get him before sept 12
2 jimmy g after 21
3 watson as long as philly says no or does not offer a 1st rount pick they have 3

I was listening to the sports radio here in Denver today and, uh, they were really shitting on Lock. I think everyone got spun up over getting Rodgers and there's some (unfair) backlash.

the worry with lock is he is INT happy and trusts his big arm too much if i was him i wouild had wanted my relase and signed with Det or NO

what worries me about rodgers is the bidding war that will happen next feb/mar between den/vegas for him as roders has said he will play for vegas but david carr has said he would retie rather than play for athother team

my 02 after 2 games

the biggest diff is no turnover teddy and vic being more agg on 4th down along with the NFL number 1 CB and S

as i look at the next 5 games no reason why they can't go 3-2 or 4-1

Balt is too banged up and they are overrated
Pitt is WAY overrated ben gives me vibes of 15 petyon
the raiders and browns are for real

u can laugh and scoff but i expect denver to start 8-2 or 7-3 still will not beat KC but the AFC West should get 3 teams in the playoffs

Well well well, Jesters visit Denver next Sunday. So we either get one or you guys go 3-0. If we can not be morons (long shot) we might be able to keep it competitive. Somehow Jets D is way better than I expected.
