First off guys, I just wanted to say, I’ve spent a lot of time venturing into some other Denver Broncos podcasts and radio shows and without a doubt you guys are the gold standard. Mase is the Peyton Manning of Broncos podcast hosts. His understanding of the game, history of the NFL, recall of historical events in football, pop culture, and general knowledge never ceases to blow my mind. Zac beyond being ridiculously likeable consistently presents balanced, thoughtful, intelligent takes and legendary Twitter typos. Last but not least, RK captures the heart and soul of DNVR and makes the podcast so genuinely fun to listen to day in and day out even in these dark days of being Broncos fans.
If you can spare it please subscribe, give positive reviews, etc. to support these guys, they provide coverage that is second to none and have built an extraordinary fan community online and off. Thanks for all the work you dudes put in, Broncos Country is lucky to have you.
NOW back to football, I was pleasantly shocked to see Elway vacate the GM role and at face value it’s incredibly exciting but I have a sinking feeling about this. I know Elway wants to step back from the day to day operations and enjoy his personal life but if thigs get ugly, I have a hard time imagining him not getting involved and being a little heavier handed with the GM. I’m also not sure if he’s going to trust someone whose general thinking/perspective isn’t aligned with his and Vic’s and trust them to make significant changes to the way the team and FO operate. Lastly, I’m really not sure what to make of Fangio’s involvement in the hiring process as well. I get retaining him to maintain continuity but I don’t think he’s performed well enough over the past two seasons to have the level of clout that would enable him to be involved in the search. After Drew Lock, Vic Fangio may be under the most (well deserved) scrutiny next season and the idea of putting him in a position to pick his own boss doesn’t sit right with me. Am I being overly paranoid or pessimistic about this? I want to be excited but can’t shake the skepticism.
