The guys break down their general thoughts on the move and what it means for the future of the Denver Broncos. What does Case Keenum bring to the table that is an upgrade over the Broncos current quarterback stable? Pritchard & Cecil break down some of the pros of what Keenum will really bring to the table for the Broncos. Also, should the Broncos still draft a quarterback with the fifth overall pick? The guys break down their opinion on that as well.
Plus, Mike Pritchard says this is an aggressive move for the Broncos in getting Keenum and not a conservative move. Mike Pritchard breaks down why this move made sense for the Broncos and why the Broncos made a strong move. Cecil Lammey discusses some more of his thoughts on the Keenum move as well.
Hour two Pritchard & Cecil talk about how much of a long term solution is Case Keenum for the Denver Broncos? The guys talk about what Keenum will bring to the Broncos and how long Keenum can fill a need at quarterback for the Broncos. The guys look at Keenum’s career closely and his overall record over the years in the NFL so far. The guys also take a look at how the Keenum signing for the Broncos will impact certain free agents on the market right now.

Or if the team must pair Keenum with a big time free agent prospect like Nate Solder? The guys break that down and debate that. The guys discuss how if the team could get Barkley as well that would be a huge win but that it’ll be hard for the Broncos to be able to move up in the draft to do so.
