The Drive with DMac & Chad Brown LIVE in studio! DMac dives into the Ron Borges article on Tom Brady wanting Garoppolo money or threatening not to show up at OTAs. DMac says Borges got catfished.
The guys talk about Adam Schefter’s breakdown of the Jimmy Garoppolo contract, and Jimmy G’s base salary & cap hit. DMac says it’s all about the guaranteed money, and Chad says if Jimmy is worth ’X’ then Kirk is worth ‘Y.’ Also, DMac dives into the Ron Borges article on Tom Brady wanting Garoppolo money or threatening not to show up at OTAs. DMac says Borges got catfished. DMac says the Olympics are designed for women to watch more than men. The guys talk about the perception of a player, and how it can change depending on who is doing the analysis. Chad Brown likes to know what others think about him, in addition to his self-analysis, and DMac explains why he likes to joke about Elway being the owner of the Denver Broncos, and why it might be in Elway’s best interest to let Kubiak be the GM.
DMac & Chad talk about blocking schemes, and why Quenton Nelson will be the first guard taken. DMac says if the Broncos draft Nelson, he will be putting on a gold jacket in 10 years, and Chad is impressed with Nelson’s mental processing. DMac asks Big Sexy about important offseason dates, including the payments due today for the Broncos to keep Demaryius Thomas & Chris Harris Jr. around for the 2018 season. Also, why Peyton Manning hated Cody Latimer & loved Bubba Caldwell. The guys mention the opening ceremonies for the Olympics, and how many injuries we can expect in the 2018 Winter Games. DMac has a problem with sports that are ‘judged’ and feels bad for anyone getting critiqued by Tara Lipinski & Johnny Weir. Chad & DMac take calls on Kirk Cousins’ $90 million guaranteed, and what the Broncos should do about drafting Nelson & McGlinchey.
The guys talk about skiing at Vail & why we are spoiled here in Colorado. DMac & Chad take calls on if Baker Mayfield would be a good fit in Denver, and hear from Jimmy Garoppolo on why he didn’t ask for more money. Chad thinks the Baker Mayfield air-raid offense will not translate to the NFL, and isn’t sure about his abilities as a passer, despite his abilities as a leader. Also, what prospects the guys would trade up for in the draft, and what QBs still have good value. Lastly, the guys take calls on the Broncos coaching staff.
