If Von Miller is not on this team in 2019 and Case Keenum is, I will boycott the Broncos until the stupidity is cured.
Steven, loyal to No. 58
Kiz: Miller celebrates his 30th birthday in March. Where did the time go? Here’s the deal: Unless you think the Broncos can return to the Super Bowl in the next two years, John Elway must consider trading Miller for draft picks while he’s still in his prime, no matter how much that idea might irritate you or the Vonster’s mother. But here’s the rub: How much can a veteran linebacker with a salary-cap hit of $25 million actually fetch in trade? I’m afraid the market might not be as attractive as Elway might think … or like.
It doesn’t have to take long to rebuild in the NFL. The Broncos stunk in 2010. Had I said back then that Peyton Manning would lead Denver to the AFC’s No. 1 playoff seed in 2012, I would’ve been thrown in the asylum. Manning ain’t walking through that door again, but you never know what can happen. It can change quickly.
Jason, season-ticket holder
Kiz: In a span of 11 months from the 2011 NFL draft until Manning signed as a free agent in March 2012, the Broncos added an edge-rusher with Hall of Fame talent (Miller) and a future Hall of Fame quarterback. If you believe Bradley Chubb is a Hall of Fame edge-rusher, then the Broncos are halfway back to championship contention. Now for the tough part: Who’s your choice for the next franchise QB to walk through the doors at Dove Valley Headquarters?
Do you see the Broncos’ ownership snafu getting cleared up before next season?
Larry, soap-opera fan
Kiz: I will be surprised if Brittany Bowlen does not join the front office sometime during 2019. If president Joe Ellis fails to make that move, he’s asking for trouble.
It won’t matter who coaches the Broncos next season. They need to get rid of the core problem, Elway and his sidekick, Matt Russell. You should have realized this earlier, Kiz. You were clamoring all season for Vance Joseph to go, but it wouldn’t have mattered if Bill Belichick were the coach in Denver. Elway is not the right guy.
Vince, assigning blame
Kiz: Elway is the king of the comeback. Let’s see if Old No. 7 has one more left in him.
If you’re discouraged as the Broncos turn back the clock (again) instead of going modern and innovative, tune in the Nuggets, who are redefining offensive basketball with Nikola Jokic.
Sidney, big dawg
Kiz: If the Nuggets stay healthy, they’re a lock to be among the top four playoff seeds in the West. My projection for the other three? Golden State, Oklahoma City and Houston. The big question: How many of those teams can Denver beat out in the final standings?
And today’s parting shot should be plastered on a billboard at the Interstate 25 and Sixth Avenue interchange, don’t you think?
