  • I couldn’t hold my tongue any longer on the straw debate, IT IS TWO HOLES. When digging with a shovel we consider them holes even though they don’t go all the way through the earth, the parts of donuts that are cut out in the middle get made into donut HOLES because that is what they created and in terms of projectiles (or having a nail go through/into you) there are even terms to make a distinction between holes (entrance HOLES and exit HOLES) so in reality if it’s through and through there are always two holes if it gets caught inside there’s only one…there’s only one way something can have a single hole “through and through” and that is if it is a two dimensional object which we can only simulate and therefore isn’t “real”.

    thank you for listening to my TED talk you may resume the podcast

    • I meant to add for the earth and donut parts that if you only went part of the way through in two areas it would be considered two holes, connecting them doesn’t change that it’s two holes

      • Captain Hook is right, it is 2 holes. If you have a soda can, how many holes does it have? If you punch a HOLE in the bottom of the can, in an identical position as the top, how many holes does it have? If you then, punch a hole in the side, how many holes does it have?

        Also, football related (ish) you guys asked why it was so common to make fun of Flacco. Well i don’t know, but it’s the same with Nickelback. “This is how you remind me” that we have Nickelback as our quarterback and it got me “feeling way too damn good”

  • Ryan, the song you are referencing is “The Hey Song” by Paul Gadd (aka Gary Glitter). He was jailed, in 2015, for multiple sexual assaults in the late 70’s to include a minor. So, yes….sports have moved away from this song. Moving on……

    You’re batting .1000 on comments just took a hit! You skipped my comment from yesterday. I was between Nick Scott and Samuelbissu. I think Zac just got a little too excited over Samuelbissu’s win percentage with ties question. But all is forgiven.

    BLUF: Trade Rosen and draft capitol for Harris is a good and smart move for long term outcome. Not a “win now” move.

    After listening to yesterday’s podcast, I am fearful of the possibility we may lose CHJ before the start of the year. But Mr. T’s comment did intrigue me about the trade with Arizona for Rosen. As often said, the NFL “is a business”. Being able to get Rosen for Harris and probably some draft capital (Harris is the better player) will secure the Broncos for a longer term (say 10 years) than keeping Harris for an additional 3 years (maybe more because he is a stud). Not a “win now” move but definitely a possibility. I wonder if this is why Elway keeps saying there will be no talks until after the Draft.


  • Ok let me just say I know this is a completely unrealistic idea but if I was Elway on draft night I would go about the draft this way: First I would use Flacco as a smoke screen, if Denver didn’t have him we would probably have to trade up to get a QB to prevent being leapfrogged. After Drafting Lock or Haskins. Our second round pick would be used to grab the best offensive player available. Then in round three trade our pick for Gerald McCoy. Round 4 we can grab either BPA or use the pick to trade for Darron Lee. Following the draft, we cut Flacco to pay for McCoy and Lee and use the leftover money to pay Strap Harris. This way we are still sorta in win now mode but we also have the QB of the future. Like I said completely unrealistic just a fun idea. My gut is telling that there is a good chance Chris’s time as a Bronco is coming to an end soon, and I would be really disappointed if it comes true.

    Also if you were buying a Broncos jersey of a player currently on the roster who would it be? I am leaning towards Willie P but hard to pass on a Lindsay or Sutton. Used to have a Von and DT but after I got those signed absolutely had to frame them.

  • Hey guys, here is theory.
    I think Vic is teaching John the art of the smoke screen, Elway has never even bothered with it and i think bringing in all the qb (Specialy Murray) was just that.

    I think Vic is realy good at it, he is making everyone think he doent like the Devins, specialy comparing them to Roquan was masterfull, but his best work was making the press belive he olny watched 150 broncos plays from last year, i think he watched 150 the first hour he got the job.

    Keep up the excelent work

    Ps the 1-0-15 record would count like a 8-7-1 record but its still a 1.000%, lol

  • Hey fellas. I am a couple episodes behind at this point but I have a road trip ahead of me so I should catch up. So sorry if you have already talked about this – I was really impressed with Sutton’s confidence and “posture” in his presser. That said, what do you make of Sutton’s comment that he is now WR1? Like I said, I appreciate the confidence but couldn’t that potentially cause friction between he and Sanders? Or is this telling us something about Sanders’ status?

    Shifting gears entirely, both of my kids (ages 8 & 11 now) are HUGE Broncos fans from birth. In the post-Manning era of QB suckage they took to assigning nicknames to our QB’s. I will share them with the world: Trevor Suckian, Crapton Lynch, and my personal favorite, Brock Buttcheek. You are welcome. I shudder to think what they could do with the name Joe Flacco.

    Finally, can you please give a shout out to my son Chris who just turned 11 this week and listens to this podcast with me on the regular. Thank you guys for what you do and for the solid content.

    PS – what are the chances you guys will ever get tall sizes in your apparel? I would buy one of everything if it wasn’t a midriff on me!

  • Thanks for answering my Elway draft issue. I knew I could count on you guys to figure it out even if it took two times to ask it.

    If the Broncos end up after the draft having some left over cap space (2-3 million), any chance they give Chris an increase in pay this year to calm the waters until the offseason of 2020?

    Why don’t the Broncos sign a veteran guard? It worked in 2015 with Evan Mathis? If John is trying to regain the magic of the 2015 season…

  • Hey two questions guys:

    The first is more on the draft, how many QBs do you see truly going in the top 10? I have seen some mocks that only have Murray going number one and then Haskins and Locke on the Board with Denver going with Locke. I think Bronco fans would have more questions then answers with Elway drafting Locke with the number 10 pick.

    The second question refers back to a question I had asked awhile ago. I saw an article that said Von has gained 10lbs during the off-season and should come in with a bit more power. I had mentioned this earlier that he wasn’t bullying Tackles like he use too last season with physicality. Do you think that him adding more weight should equal more power and hopefully more sacks? Again 20 million should mean 20 sacks

    Thanks as always,
    PS I am trying to get my brother hooked on that BSN denver train….CHOO! CHOOO!

  • I love the comparisons you guys make for GM to Players as your girlfriend LOL! It makes the business part of this great sport so awkward- Ha!

    I didn’t follow the Flacco thing in Baltimore las year very closely, but do you think he was benched because he wasn’t doing well or because the team wanted to go from a pocket QB to a RPO QB and just wanted to make a clean break? Ive heard a lot of people saying “he got benched for a rookie QB that can’t throw.” I wasn’t sure that is a fair statement or not.

    You’re right RK, I think Elway has been putting himself in a position of strength this entire offseason. Boss moves. I hope CHJ stays in Denver. I can’t imagine Denver D without him.

    Food: Ramen noodles- when is the CORRECT time to put in the seasoning? Before the water boils, just as it boils, or after you put in the noodles?

  • First off thank you BSN for all the great content. Now, a couple things I’d like to say. I do believe Kyler Murray will be great but, not a goat. The league will have him figured out in no time, no super bowl. I predict Mahomes will have a not so good season. Now….Chipotle is trash!, Taco Bell hell even Taco Time beats the beans and rice out of Chipotles, but what do I know. Thanks Zac & Ryan for your work you guys are some straight Gz
