The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE in studio! Denver Broncos DE Derek Wolfe joins the show to say he has Cervical Stenosis, and is playing it safe so he can heal correctly. Fan Broncos Insider Cecil Lammey joins the show to say it’s time for the Broncos to strip it down to the bone, and decide who’s the problem & who’s the solution.
Big Al is keeping hope alive for the Broncos, and DMac is appalled Russia won’t be in the Olympics. DMac is also floored about LaVar Ball pulling LiAngelo from UCLA, and thinks LaVar is taking opportunities away from his kids. In the Big 3 @ 3:30 the guys talk about the severity of Ryan Shazier’s injury, and if Gronk’s hit on Tre’Davious White was comparable to JuJu Smith-Schuster’s on Vontaze Burfict. Big Al says it’s time to show no mercy and you better get on board. Denver Broncos DE Derek Wolfe joins the show to say he has Cervical Stenosis, and is playing it safe so he can heal correctly. Wolfe says it’s been the same old story all year, and the broncos continue to beat themselves. Derek says it’s not fun to watch your team lose on TV, and he still has hope the team can win every week. Also, helping young Gotsis, why it takes guts to do what Gase did, and why losing TJ Ward hurt the locker room the most. Listen to the interview HERE!
In Football @ 4:00, Big Al & DMac talk about a big upcoming Bowlen decision, and why it’s such a big offseason for the Broncos scouting department. Al decides if Trevor Siemian is tough or not, and if Case Keenum is worth signing or trading for. Fan Broncos Insider Cecil Lammey joins the show to say it’s time for the Broncos to strip it down to the bone, and decide who’s the problem & who’s the solution. Cecil says what Denver does at QB will determine the rest of the offseason, and Darnold is leaning towards returning to USC. Also, Mayfield still is being viewed as a second round pick, and Cecil wants Denver to spring for an OT like Mike McGlinchey if he’s staring them in the face as a top-5 pick. Listen to the interview HERE! DMac gets into the mind of John Elway, and Big Al nails down Kirk Cousins as the top free agent this coming offseason. DMac finds out from Al what young QBs in the draft he would look at over Case Keenum, and if the Broncos should draft an offensive lineman instead of addressing the QB position.
Big Al asks DMac why Kirk Cousins would want to come here, and who John Elway has to sign off with now that Bowlen is out of the picture. DMac says Chad Kelly can spin it, but is an unlikely candidate for the Broncos QB position next season & is more a favorite of Uncle Jim Kelly. DMac notes that the QB position will determine the Broncos’ set of offseason circumstances, and Al notes three positions on the O-Line that can be improved upon. Al says if the Broncos land a new Center, their problems are solved. DMac asks Al why he is driving the Case Keenum bus, and Al reassures the listeners Paxton will never beat out Trevor in training camp. DMac says John Elway has failed over the past two years, and wonders how much more time Al is going to give Elway to turn things around in Denver.
