The Drive with Big Al & Dmac LIVE IN STUDIO!!! Big Al reacts to DMac’s ‘tank for Tua’ idea, and DMac says the Broncos have so many needs that they’ll have to tank multiple years for good picks. DMac thinks the Broncos will win on Sunday, but says there’s nothing wrong with losing to the Texans.
The guys check in on Bradley Chubb & the rookie sacks record, and Al plays up Phillip Lindsay as a Top-5 back. Also, DMac looks for some Texans playmakers to be aware of, such as WR Keke Coutee.
In the Big 3, DMac leads off with the Nuggets beating the Bulls on the road, and laughs about Jon Gruden’s comments regarding players that want to come play for the Raiders blowing up his phone. Also, Big Al notices Draymond Green recruiting Anthony Davis.
DMac notes that the Broncos have some important changes to make, including at the QB position, and tells Big Al that Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa is his new target in the 2020 draft. Big Al says things change, and watch out for Tampa Bay to scoop Tua before the Broncos can.

Bradley Chubb wins Defensive Rookie of the Month, and DMac notes how special Phillip Lindsay has been as a rusher. DMac says a car is no-good without an engine, and Al says this is where the rubber meets the road & Keenum won’t be the starter next year.

DMac says it’s hard to imagine Elway making any changes, and there were huge red flags with Garett Bolles & Paxton Lynch. Also, Al & DMac debate if Chad Kelly was the scapegoat this year like Mike McCoy was last year.
