    on a last-play field goal Brian Dawkins Jersey , Vance Joseph’s decision not to challenge Case Keenum‘s 2-point run became a footnote. It would have become a far bigger deal if Philip Rivers and then the Broncos offense hadn’t bailed him out.Joseph, though, continued to insist a day later that his coaches upstairs did not have a clear view of Keenum reaching the ball across the goal line before his knees hit the ground.CBS rules analyst Gene Steratore, a former NFL referee, said during the broadcast he expected the league would have reversed the on-field ruling if the Broncos had challenged the fourth-quarter play.The key was: Because it wasn鈥檛 a scoring play, it was not a booth review. Joseph had to initiate the challenge by throwing his red flag.Joseph put the onus back on the officials to “get the call right” in the first place, or if they don’t, then err on the side of an automatic challenge.“I’m talking to our staff in the press box because obviously I can’t see the replays,” Joseph said, via Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic. “Those guys give me the evidence to challenge, so if it’s not clear, they tell me, ‘Coach, it’s not clear. We can’t tell.’“I would prefer if the officials are not sure if it’s a positive or negative play, just call it on the positive side because it’s a built-in fix for him. Once he calls it a score, it’s reviewed. If it’s not a score, I have to obviously challenge it. If my views are not clear to challenge it, I can’t because it’s 12 minutes in that game. If I lose that challenge, it costs me something. It was more important to keep our timeout there without having clear evidence. Now, if it was clear Peyton Manning Jersey , absolutely we would challenge it. But it wasn’t clear to our guys upstairs.” John Elway has met with Drew Lock, but it might just mean he’s learned from his mistakes.”WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Broncos NewsBroncos 2019 Draft ClassBroncos PodcastsBroncos 2019 ScheduleKey Offseason DatesCommunity RulesFull ArchiveBroncos StoriesScheduleRosterStatsOdds Shop About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Broncos podcastsDenver Broncos 2019 DraftElway has learned to cross his T’sNew,149commentsJohn Elway has met with Drew Lock, but it might just mean he’s learned from his mistakes. Elway has learned to cross his T’sJohn Elway and company are now (or have been) meeting with Drew Lock for an extended look at the youngster QB and this extra special visit forces us to wonder; is he the guy for the Denver Broncos at #10? There’s no way that they would spend multiple days with the guy and perhaps even have a slumber party (in the podcast above we talk about whether Elway has Big Bird or Boba Fett PJs) and not be seriously interested in picking him as your top pick in the 2019 draft. Right?This is proof positive for the pro-Lock people that the decision has been made and if the Missouri Quarterback is available (which is not guaranteed), the Broncos will give him the task of being the next franchise QB. Except….it’s not. Elway has finally learned that he must practice all due diligence and he can’t again make the mistake of drafting guys early that he never even met with. (See Paxton Lynch). He learned with Mike Munchak that meeting with a coach/player and getting to know him can never hurt. If he had settled for Fangio and not brought in Munchak the Broncos wouldn’t now have the best OL coach in the NFL now on their sideline right beside Vic Fangio. Elway crossed his T’s and dotted his I’s and it paid off. The less recent past didn’t bring the same success stories and the Denver GM has seemingly learned from his mistakes. Hopefully he’s learned from all of them.One mistake he could repeat would indeed be to draft a guy simply out of need. Even a QB. Even Drew Lock. Lock by no means and by no evaluation that I’ve seen is considered as a top-ten talent. He’s often not even thought of as a top 30 talent. What he is though, is a QB, and that pushes all worries to the side. His lack of big game experience, comparisons to Jay Cutler and questionable decision making get lost in the shuffle just simply because he’s a QB and teams need a QB. In fact, this is the one reason why I liked the Joe Flacco move (after a few days of pure anger) because the Broncos would no longer be desperate for a Quarterback in the draft. The Broncos should not, not, not draft Drew Lock unless they believe him to be either a.) a franchise QB or b.) the best player available. If they are interested in him simply because he’s the “best QB in the draft” then Elway should also go eat a bear turd because it’s the most edible of all animal turds – science. We (Kevin and Skipper Dude) are pro Elway guys and think that he has done far more good for this team as a GM than bad. He’s made mistakes but he also brought us a championship in 2015 and a heckuva lot of fun during the PFM years. We believe that he has earned our support for at least the next three years and – for me personally – I believe that he has learned from his errors and if he picks Lock it is because Lock is THE guy who will lead this team for the next 10 to 15 years. But I doubt it. Ed Oliver, big guy, start testing how you look in blue and orange bro.
