You know, the Broncos certainly lacked fire in that game yesterday, that embarrassment of a game.

So did the coaches.

Why? Because their “leader” Peyton Manning was stinking the joint up. Is he going to be all rah rah? Nope, don’t think so.

It’s up to the coaches to do that. I didn’t see any fire. I read Elway let the entire coaching staff know they could look elsewhere.

Good.

It’s like they were all ho-hum. Ho-hum, we’ll eventually catch up and win this game. Yeah right.

I noticed the crowd sucked too. Way to reaffirm you’re not the Mile High of old. Bunch of latte sipping, weed smoking, hooka worshiping gooned out hipsters in the stands. They know how to smoke, boo and are at least bright enough to leave early to beat traffic.

I say let Manning walk even if he’s going to play next season. People think that means this team needs to rebuild and we’re done chasing a championship for a while. I would say they were probably the same fools who thought this defense and running game was great when Manning took over.

Like I outlined in my previous post, the Broncos can get much better in one year this time around. Address offensive tackle early in the draft, draft another running back, acquire middle linebacker and safety. Acquire someone who can rush from the middle of the defense.  I would say goodbye to Wes Welker and I would even let Julius Thomas go. Thomas can’t run block for squat, I say let him walk, we can get somebody else to catch and block at TE for less money.

I’ve been impressed with the little we’ve seen of Brock Osweiler. Let him lead this offense, he’s got freakish height and he’s shown athleticism out there. He can move well for a big guy and protects the football for the most part when he’s been out there.

Maybe, just maybe I can finally be on board with the “new” Broncos.
