Broncos ‘better on paper’ - the real test will be on the fielddenverbroncos.comAndrew Mason and Brandon Krisztal of Orange & Blue Radio had a quick chat with John Elway and Vic Fangio today ahead of the NFL league meeting, and both the GM and his new head coach said things that should remind you why you can get excited about another season despite three bad ones in the recent past.Elway acknowledged straight up he knows why Broncos Country is frustrated and therefore was impatient at the beginning of free agency.“The No. 1 thing we have to do is win football games, right?” Elway said. “Obviously we haven’t been doing that the past couple of years so obviously everybody is getting a little bit frustrated in Broncoland, and I get that because we’re used to winning.”But Elway feels really good about the steps taken this offseason to fix that - beginning with hiring Vic Fangio and bringing in the staff former defensive coordinator wanted.Listen to "3-25-19 John Elway with Mase and BK on 1st & 10" on Spreaker.The next step was getting better at quarterback - and Elway is confident that bringing in Joe Flacco is an upgrade - while also adding talent to the team.“We decided to go with Joe and trade Case, and I feel really good about where [Flacco] fits in the new system we’re implementing,” Elway said, adding that getting defensive help, especially in the secondary was a must. “We feel really good about Bryce [Callahan] as well as Kareem [Jackson],” he added. “They will really give Vic a lot of flexibility. And with Ja’wuan [James] we solidified that right tackle position. So we feel really good about where we are.”When Mase asked about turning around the culture, Elway - the consummate winner - pointed out that winning games is the first way to do that.“We added talented football players but also good people - guys who care about football and want to win,” Elway said. “And the bottom line is to have guys in the culture that if thingsare not going as well as you’d like them to go, they’re able to pull you out of the nose dive if you lose one or two in a row.”And Elway knows better than anyone that that ability revolves primarily around the quarterback - and that’s ultimately why Flacco will be good for this team.“I think with Joe Flacco pulling the trigger, [the team] will have confidence in him because of his history in this league and the success that he’s had. He’s won a world championship Dre’Mont Jones Denver Broncos Jersey ,” Elway said. “[A winning culture] revolves around that position, and I think Joe will be that solidifying factor for us where we can start moving ahead.”Fangio talked with Mason and Krisztal and said that he definitely believes the Broncos “got better on paper” with their new free agent pickups, but the real test is when the team puts it on the field.And the coach believes strongly in helping players be their best selves by being honest and direct.“Make it simple. Show them examples,” he said. “If you can improve the player as a player, then everything else falls into place.” This is the “impossible” week to pick. Some teams are as likely to start players as bench them. Some teams have already mailed in the season and won’t try. Some teams will actually try, but it might be against another “mailed it in” team. And some games will simply take forever with neither team necessarily caring if they win.I’m not sure how much stock I would put in these picks is what I’m saying. Last Week: 12-4Overall: 151-86-2Miami Dolphins (7-8) at Buffalo Bills (5-10) 11:00am CBSThe Good: We get the garbage game over quickly.The Bad: Alcohol won’t have sunk in to make this game bearable.Prediction: Dolphins 20, Bills 17?

And the Saints likely rest their starters this week. Prediction: Panthers 10, Saints 23Dallas Cowboys (9-6) at New York Giants (5-10) 11:00am FOXThe Good: This game is meaningless for both teams so nobody has to suffer though it.The Bad: Except Jeff Essary and his Cowboy onesie PJs.Prediction: Cowboys 17, Giants 19Atlanta Falcons (6-9) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-10) 11:00am FOXThe Good: Tampa Bay has some bomb Cuban food and amazing places like Ybor City.The Bad: That this game is even being televised. NFL should pay the commercial sponsors for this.Prediction: Falcons 27 Dre’Mont Jones Denver Broncos Jersey , Bucs 30Cleveland Browns (7-7-1) at Baltimore Ravens (9-6) 2:25pm CBSThe Good: Baker freaking MayfieldThe Bad: That the Broncos don’t have Baker MayfieldPrediction: Browns 20, Ravens 24Oakland Raiders (4-11) at Kansas City Chiefs (11-4) 2:25pm CBSThe Good: Patrick Mahomes. Even as a KC Hater, I love that kid.The Bad: The fact he’s in our division.The Good Bonus: That the Chiefs are allergic to December & January success. Prediction: Raiders 27, Chiefs 31Chicago Bears (11-4) at Minnesota Vikings (8-6-1) 2:25pm FOXThe Good: The Bear’s record meaning they’ll mop the floor with Cousins.The Bad: Except they’re likely resting players so Cousins will play the JV squad and help his “can’t beat a winning team” stats.Prediction: Bears 17, Vikings 23Cincinnati Bengals (6-9) at Pittsburgh Steelers (8-6-1) 2:25pm CBSThe Good: The smug ass Steeler fans can use those annoying F’ing towels to wipe their tears with for missing the playoffs after blowing an insurmountable division lead.The Bad: They’ll likely still win this game so their smug ass tears won’t be as salty as they should be.Prediction: Bengals 20, Steelers 28Philadelphia Eagles (8-7) at Washington Redskins (7-8) 2:25pm FOXThe Good: Nick Foles when he’s not the actual starter of a franchise.The Bad: The Redskins’ front office management.Prediction: Eagles 23, Redskins 17Los Angeles Chargers (11-4) at Denver Broncos (6-9) 2:25pm CBSYou’re gonna hear the following from staff and fans alike: “You never root for for the Broncos to lose!” and “Draft order doesn’t mean anything” and “Real fans blah blah blah”Zip it, all of you. This season is a steaming pile of excrement. The ONLY thing the Broncos have going for them is their draft order and this year’s draft picks, which was only doable because we LOST the last meaningless game of the season. I’d contend that a REAL fan wants the Broncos to do the best possible thing for the franchise: you know, the name on the front of the jersey. And the best thing for this franchise to do is to get as good of a draft pick as possible because you want your choice of the better players instead of the “crapshoot” players.Real fans want the long term viability of the franchise. Real fans know that sometimes you have to crack a damn egg to make a delicious omelet. Real fans can see past “next week” and towards what’s best next year.Save the rah rah for your kids soccer games. In order for the Broncos to win, they must lose this game. As I said in a comment section when a commenter said “is there really a difference between pick #11 and pick #16?” I said “yeah, J.J. Watt was pick #11, Ryan Kerrigan was #16” So yeah, future hall of fame player or someone I had to freaking google. That’s the difference between winning a meaningless game and doing what comes so naturally (i.e. losing). Do you know who IS NOT available at #16? Von Miller isn’t. JJ Watt isn’t. Baker Mayfield isn’t! You want as high a pick as you can to get the player who won’t be there later. And don’t be “that guy” and say “Tom Brady was pick 199!” We get it, broken clocks are correct twice a day Bradley Chubb Jersey , sun shines on dog’s asses every now and again, and sometimes a 6th rounder is a hall of fame. But that isn’t a draft strategy. By pretending like it is shows that you need a crash course in Vance Joseph’s ‘Football 101/Football IQ” every week.Look, the Broncos are the sad ass punchline to the joke. We are. Time to wake up from your coma and realize that it’s been 3 painful and embarrassing years since we were good. Hell, it’s been 2 years since we’ve been competitive. If you want to stay in this trash heap with the rest of the garbage teams, by all means, root for a Broncos victory. If you’re sick and tired of being an embarrassment, then you realize that the draft is the way out, and increasing the odds of drafting a hall of fame player and solid starters in the subsequent rounds is the only way off said pile. So be a REAL and TRUE fan and root for the name on the front of the jersey instead of what your “feelings” in the moment want. Rooting for a win is a crime of passion, punishable by a lifetime sentence. Knowing that losing is what’s best for the team is called wisdom!Prediction: I don’t care as long as the Broncos get a better draft pick. Also: Chargers 31, Broncos 6 We don’t even have Phillip Lindsay to bail us out.San Francisco 49ers (4-11) at Los Angeles Rams (12-3) 2:25pm FOXThe Good: Kyle Shanahan’s coaching ability.The Bad: The Rams having a bye week before they figure their defense out.Prediction: Niners 18, Rams 20 Arizona Cardinals (3-12) at Seattle Seahawks (9-6) 2:25pm FOXThe Good: The Broncos not drafting Josh RosenThe Bad: Suffering through the “12th Man” nonsense yet another week.Prediction: Cardinals 3, Seahawks 24Indianapolis Colts (9-6) at Tennessee Titans (9-6) 6:20pm NBC SNFThe Good: Andrew Luck looks to be back.The Bad: Luck’s offensive line sucks as bad as Mariota’s game. Prediction: Colts 17, Titans 16
