    DeShone Kizer.

    Savage hasn't played enough yet to have a qualified grade, but he'd be at the bottom.

    Can we start questioning if Elway knows what he is doing at QB? The only thing he got right was signing Peyton, but it's hard to screw that up :rolleyes: Sieman didn't work out, Brock is bad as we all know too well, Lynch was a 1st rounder but his development isn't going well, Tebow. People keep saying he's a QB genius and 'knows what he's doing' but I honestly don't. This is about the QB poositon fyi, he def knows how to build a defense.

    I never understood the Vance Joseph hire. The guy has never seemed competent in any of his previous positions, this just confirm my suspicions. That team is built for Kaepernick and they just refuse to see it

    But you know... our FO is the ONLY FO that makes mistakes and needs to be gutted from the roots. :rolleyes:

    Denver hasn't had a losing record since 2010, and they've been to two super bowls since then, winning one.

    John Elway started in 2011. I think he knows what he's doing.

    One super bowl was riding Peyton Manning followed by the biggest Super Bowl blowout loss in a while. The 2nd one was thanks to BROCK OSWEILER winning 5 of 7 because Peyton had gone belly up. Then we got Brock and were so stupid to do so. It's really easy to look like you know what you are doing with a franchise QB, we had one, BOB used plays we had never seen before and we had the best offense in the league. Yet we lose the QB to injury and the FO is the worst ever. Look at the packers, or any team with no QB and tell me how their FO is better than ours...

    Kubes' offense can make a lot of QB's look competent, even Brock.
    When he signed with us Elway had to do something and he got value (at least at the time) when Lynch slid a little in the draft.
    Desperation and pride can make you mess up here and there.
    Any time they want to swap former Bronco player GM/talent evaluators sign me up!!!

    Especially now that we have our QB already! :)

    There were heavy rumors before the draft that they wanted Dak. Dak was moving up the draft boards. I guess they thought Lynch was more prototypical with his size

    Yes, This is true. Elway didn't think that Lynch would be available. He was prepared to draft Dak high. Unfortunately, they were able to draft Lynch.

    They were very high on Dak. Dak missed his flight to Denver for the pre draft interview/official meeting. Thus they soured on Dak & decided to go all in on Paxton. Rumor is that Denver had Dak slated in tye 2nd or 3rd rd until the missed flight fiasco.

    Go back & look at Elways history in the draft then revisit that last statement. Littered with busts. A few late round & FA diamonds in the rough. Elway was benefited greatly by FAs signing up to ride Mannints coattails to a ring. Highly overrated.

    Funny, that was my typical Brock Osweiler post-snap call.
