Let's talk about something important today, if you're a #BroncosCountry fan. That is, how to use the team's draft resources to create the best team possible for 2021 and beyond. I decided it would be fun to think about strategy, and to share some of that with you. 1/56
The best place to start is with an honest assessment of where the team is. The #Broncos went 5-11 in 2020, but there are some reasons for optimism, when you look at what caused the bad record. 2/56
The first thing I'd point to is that Drew Lock had some pretty obvious growing pains, like most young QBs do. He also wasn't helped by several young receivers having similar growing pains. QB and WR are very hard to play well as young players. 3/56

People forget the #Patriots were 1 yard away from beating the #Seahawks, a fumble away from beating the #Bills and lost their starting QB to COVID against the #Chiefs and still almost won with the terrible tandem of Hoyer and Stidham...
Newton had a two game skid after COVID (which clearly has an effect on players) where they got smoked by the #49ers and came down to the wire with the #Broncos
Point is, the #Patriots were a couple of unfortunate events from winning all of those games, and I know football isn’t black and white but 3/5 of those games could’ve/should’ve been wins. That team last year almost won 10 games.

Some #Broncos thoughts on a Sunday after they played the day before - there's been a lot of hot takery lately about Lock, Fangio, Elway, Shurmur, everybody needing to go. You probably won't be surprised to learn that I think this is highly misguided. 1/44
When you clean house every 2-3 years, like the #Broncos have been doing, over the course of 20 years, you become the #Browns. You have to have patience, and let things develop, because nothing is fast. 2/44
In most cases, you shouldn't consider firing a coach until s/he's had 3 years to establish a program. The only exception is when it's just clear that the person isn't up to the job. That determination can't be made from outside the building, especially by a fan. 3/44

Nobody asked for it, but here is my very dull take on the proposed groundshare with London Broncos. If nothing else it has highlighted the continuing problem with the existing Dons Trust constitution.


#afcwimbedon #afcw #wimbledon #broncos
I am no expert on these issues so I apologise for any incorrect assumptions below. Those more involved with the DT may have a more insightful (and accurate) view.

Is the DTB obliged to take a members vote to decide on a groundshare?

The DT constitution does not mention Plough Lane anywhere with regards to restricted actions. It is outdated and still only refers to Kingsmeadow.

In 2018, the #49ers unveiled all-white throwbacks into the team's uniform rotation. It is a tribute to the 1994 #SuperBowl championship team.

Since then, fans have lauded this and called for the red version to return.

Here is the history of these uniforms.

These throwback uniforms originally date back to the 1955 #49ers team. That team went 4-8.

The helmet was red (with no logo) and silver pants were sometimes worn. The original white uniforms featured black stripes.

This uniform was only worn this season.

In 1994, the #NFL celebrated its 75th year. Teams were to participate in league-wide throwback uniform celebration beginning in Week 3. A commemorative 75th anniversary patch was worn by all teams.

For the first two weeks, the #49ers wore the standard set.

Instant Round 2 Grades! Here we go! #NFLDraft2020

Starting with...
33. CIN - Tee Higgins WR9 ... C

My 44th overall player, I think there are better values & better WRs available.

I also would've gone OT here, unless an AJ Green trade is imminent.

Building around Burrow is a good move, though. #Bengals
34. IND - Michael Pittman Jr. WR12 ... D

I'm lower than many on Pittman - 53rd - I just think there are much better prospects at WR. Multiple are still on the board: Laviska 21st, Mims 36th, Edwards 43rd.

Also, not the route I would've gone here with such a valuable pick.

My 1st Round Grades w/ Analysis in the thread:

Referenced my Big Board for value (linked again below w/ my other #NFLDraft content)
All my #NFLDraft content, including my Top 100 Big Board, in one spot👇
A+ (5 total) = Elite pick - great player & fit + excellent value
A (6) = Great - great player & fit
B (5) = Good - would've done it differently
C (5) = Reach / Left value on the board
D (6) = Come again? ... Why.
F (5) = See gif👇

LOTS of trades factored in. Summary of them in the thread below.

This morning, I called this my favorite stat this year. But then I thought that was an exaggeration. It's my favorite stat for the #Cardinals.

Here's my favorite stat for every other team. #Thread
#Falcons in 2016: 1.57 TDs per FG attempt
2017: 0.85 TDs per FG att
Joe Flacco was 7th in pass atts in 2017, never threw for 300 yds, averaged <200 per game.
