The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE IN STUDIO!!! Cecil Lammey joins the show to talk about what we can expect from Courtland Sutton. Cecil says it’s not all about the jump-balls with Sutton, and we can even expect some WR screens to Sutton as well.
The guys talk about Halloween candy that they bought, and DMac lays down some Chad Kelly jokes that will go down in history. DMac loves how juicy the beef is getting between Case Keenum & Bill O’Brien after Keenum threw O’Brien under the bus in his book, and Big Al compares Phillip Lindsay & Lamar Miller.
In the Big 3, we hear from Demaryius Thomas on how strange it was getting traded to the Texans after years of being on the Broncos, and Al reviews what the much-needed addition of Su’a Cravens will do for Denver’s defense.
DMac remembers the magic of Larry Bird & Ray Allen, and argues with Big Al about how hard it is to score 50 points in an NBA game like Klay Thompson. The guys agree DT’s time in Denver went quick, and DMac admits they are getting old.
Al tells DMac he has to give Bill O’Brien some credit when it comes to dialing up plays to DeAndre Hopkins, and warns DMac that Houston likes to force the tempo & stretch the field.
Cecil Lammey joins the show to talk about what we can expect from Courtland Sutton. Cecil says it’s not all about the jump-balls with Sutton, and we can even expect some WR screens to Sutton as well. Cecil says this team is getting healthier, and he expects Su’a Cravens & Jordan Taylor to be activated soon, with their unique skill-sets serving as big additions to the roster. Listen to the interview HERE!!!
DMac notes the DJ Durkin news, as Maryland’s football coach has now been fired after initially being reinstated Tuesday after an investigation into the program. Big Al asks DMac if he thinks Case Keenum is better than Baker Mayfield, and DMac says the last four games of Denver’s season are winnable, but there will be coaching changes if we don’t beat the Texans on Sunday.
Al asks DMac about the Broncos’ effort so far, and why we hired Vance Joseph in the first place besides the fact that we’re not winning games. Big Al says bad QB play is not the coaches’ fault, and demands a reason why DMac would fire the coaching staff after losing to the Texans.
DMac says DT will wear number 87, and we hear from Chris Harris Jr. on why he will dominate the matchup with DT. DMac is not high on this year’s draft class, so Big Al comes up with a plan to mix in a new coach here in Denver with a fresh veteran QB and a young kid in the draft that we can mold.
DMac asks Al if John Elway is okay with giving up some of his authority so that Denver can land the right QB, and what was the real reason why Brock Osweiler didn’t work out in Houston. Al says nobody believed in Tim Tebow besides Mike McCoy, and notes the way Andy Reid handles Patrick Mahomes.
The guys say goodbye to Demaryius Thomas and to the month of October.
