Broncos trade Eagles a draft pick for Mark Sanchez

Mark Sanchez AP

The Broncos have a quarterback again.

I suppose.

According to Mike Klis of KUSA in Denver, the Broncos have sent a conditional draft pick to the Eagles for spare quarterback Mark Sanchez.

That gives them someone other than Trevor Siemian on the depth chart, but hardly seems like an answer after Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler bolted for Houston.

And Sanchez was no longer needed in Philadelphia, such that he ever was, once Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel were signed.

Sanchez is signed at a reasonable backup rate ($4.5 million), and it seems reasonable to think the Broncos are still looking for a starter.

    “The Broncos have a quarterback again, unless they don’t, unless they didn’t in the first place…”

    And the really sad (or funny) thing is, whoever else
    they bring in won/t really be much better than Dirty.

    Two words from Eagles fans: Good riddance.

  5. logicalvoicepft says: Mar 11, 2016 1:32 PM

    The winner is Mark Sanchez. Now he gets to sit behind RGIII and probably win another Superbowl. Definitely has a chance now that he is out of the blackhole that is the Eagles franchise.

  6. thefatlazygamer says: Mar 11, 2016 1:32 PM

    I literally laughed out loud manically when I read the headline. Hopefully for Denver’s sake he’s just the backup.

  7. richiethegreek says: Mar 11, 2016 1:32 PM

    I’m not a fan of Howie Rossman but he’s making some treat trades right now. I can’t believe a team would give anything for him. They would have cut him.

  8. trubroncfan07 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:33 PM

    Oh no this is terrible new! As a Broncos fan now I am worried.

  9. cheeks9441 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:33 PM

    I’m not saying Sanchez is good – he isn’t – and I know that the butt fumble is basically his legacy, but in fairness, he HAS accomplished some things in this league, has won a bunch of road playoff games, and has put up more than a few impressive games in his career.

    Again, he isn’t one of the top 20 or 25 quarterbacks in the NFL. But I just don’t think he deserves to be a punchline. He’s a good backup – and that’s an important position in the NFL.

    And as Peyton Manning would say, “That’s all I have to say about that.”

  10. concmike says: Mar 11, 2016 1:34 PM

    Keep watching to see the “Bronco Buttfumble Part II” coming soon to a field near you!!!

    This is the beginning of the end for their old horse faced GM….

  14. justintuckrule says: Mar 11, 2016 1:35 PM

    The Eagles just traded the best QB on their roster and you got dopes ready to name streets after their GM. You can’t make this stuff up.

  15. 6thsense10 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:35 PM

    Well Broncos fans seem to believe they can throw anyone behind center and still win so we’re about to find out.

  16. thegreatgabbert says: Mar 11, 2016 1:35 PM

    The pick is a 9th rounder, the condition being that the draft is expanded to 9 rounds within the next year.

  17. naldoron says: Mar 11, 2016 1:35 PM

    Wow, the return of Mr. Butt Fumble, LOL

  18. nflsucker says: Mar 11, 2016 1:35 PM

    That is a signal of true QB position desperation.

  19. nyjfanz says: Mar 11, 2016 1:36 PM

    Sit behind RGIII?

  20. genoinabottlenyj says: Mar 11, 2016 1:36 PM

    Nice to see the Broncos front office is taking full advantage of the new Marijuana laws in Colorado

  21. myeaglescantwin says: Mar 11, 2016 1:36 PM

    yeah, he’ll win the bowl with that defense as long as they run 65 times per game.

    lol

  22. charliecharger says: Mar 11, 2016 1:36 PM

    Sanchez is proven winner in college and the NFL. Siemian is perhaps the smartest QB I’ve ever seen. Can’t wait to see what he does. The Broncos right now have two legit QBs and we don’t even know what their draft plans are. They could conceivably end up with the best QB from this draft. Stranger things have happened. At this point, I’m watching and learning from John Elway, not making a fool of myself trying to second guess this football genius.

  23. pats are better than your team says: Mar 11, 2016 1:37 PM

    Lmao, Butt Fumble!! That’s actually worse than Manning with a dead arm. Elway’s a genius!!

  24. scoops1 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:37 PM

    Noone wants to watch Mark Sanchez on Opening Night

  25. johnniemayes says: Mar 11, 2016 1:37 PM

    GOD PLEASE NO! He better be here for the 3rd string job. For the love of God WHY!?

  26. theclebrowns says: Mar 11, 2016 1:37 PM

    What do you think he is trying to show us in that picture?

  27. najacoo22 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:37 PM

    Not a Broncos fan or a Sanchez fan, but I think even a guy like him could succeed with a team like Denver.

  28. hahalolrofl says: Mar 11, 2016 1:37 PM

    If they make him a starter elway needs to be in concussion protocol!

    /bronco fan

  29. cantonbound13 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:37 PM

    Eagles clearly have a great GM.

  30. ttommytom says: Mar 11, 2016 1:37 PM

    I watched just about every Sanchez game with the Jets: He just finds a way to make 2 really stupid plays per game. I mean really bad.

    I remember watching a young Andy Pettitte. Used to always find a way to throw a few fat FB’s in the zone 2nd time through the order. Dude. Make them chase. SOMETHING.

    Pettitte fixed that (more or less) but Sanchez never did.

  31. hahalolrofl says: Mar 11, 2016 1:38 PM

    please, did steve harvey break this news? I hope so.

  32. tattooit says: Mar 11, 2016 1:38 PM

    Not a bad consolation prize at all.

  33. oldandgrumpy72 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:39 PM

    NICE! As long as he stops drinking those chocolate cake shots the night before games. (You know what I’m walking about Sanchize). He can take them to back to back AFC Championship games. My wife can now wear her #6 Mrs S shirt again.

  34. richiethegreek says: Mar 11, 2016 1:39 PM

    Not a fan of Howie Rosman but he’s making good trades and signings right now. I can’t believe someone would give up something for Sanchez, they were going to cut him.

  35. carnegiemellonisafruitstand says: Mar 11, 2016 1:39 PM

    Does anyone know if Elway has been tested for CTE yet?

  36. coltzfan166 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:39 PM

    Alright then

  37. rundmc3 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:40 PM

    boy, i knew they were hurting after Osweiler’s defection, but this is downright desperation.

  38. owljazzera says: Mar 11, 2016 1:40 PM

    So the Donkeys traded a pick for a whole bunch of picks and a butt fumble.

  39. jpaq68 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:40 PM

    Even if it was a 7th rounder, the Broncos got taken

  40. touchdownroddywhite says: Mar 11, 2016 1:41 PM

    People are going to laugh at this and I’m sure the down votes will flow freely… But that said, Sanchez will do better than Osweiler or Manning did last year if he ends up starting. Guy was knocking on the door of the SB twice if I recall…

  41. getakluwe says: Mar 11, 2016 1:41 PM

    He’ll be cut in training camp.

  42. ryanc2015 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:41 PM

    Hard to imagine our QB play could be any worse then last year. We only need a game manager. Still a top 5 defense. Go Broncos!

  43. fanofpft says: Mar 11, 2016 1:41 PM

    Buttfumble is a Bronco.

  44. rjg427 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:41 PM

    They’re still better off with Uncle Rico

  45. jvw1982 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:43 PM

    This is actually a good plan B for the Broncos, Put Sanchez on a team with a great defense that runs a pro offense and he maybe good enough to go deep in the playoffs like he did with the Jets…..If it works it will give Elway time to draft adn groom his replacement…..Good move….

  46. drumsomeone says: Mar 11, 2016 1:44 PM

    It’s clear now – ELWAY MUST GO!

  47. wallabear says: Mar 11, 2016 1:44 PM

    Broncos won with a mediocre QB in Big Bro Manning, so now they think they can win with a less-than-mediocre QB in The Sanchize. Interesting… well, if Von Miller can manage to keep doping up and getting after the quarterback, then I suppose the Broncos may have a pretty good chance, eh!

  48. scmems07 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:46 PM

    Hey, he was the QB when the Jet’s made it to back to back AFC championship games, they had a great defense. Seattle made it to 2 SB’s with mediocre/bad QB play. Stranger things have happened.

  49. stealthjunk says: Mar 11, 2016 1:46 PM

    The Eagles traded Sanchez for a conditional 7th round pick, which could only mean that Denver must have ran out of footballs.

    Elway been sippin that silly juice again. This calls for a giant face palm

  52. gdublud says: Mar 11, 2016 1:47 PM

    Sanchez is just a “camp arm”

  53. jetsarestacked says: Mar 11, 2016 1:47 PM

    sanchez is actually very capable of being pretty good as long as he has the weapons around him which is something that the broncos definitely have. is he the long term answer? likely not. however, he’s not a bad plan B.

  54. myopinionisrighterthanyours says: Mar 11, 2016 1:47 PM

    “But, but, he played in TWO AFC championship games” – Jets fans prior to them jettisoning him.

  55. nouhoh64 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:48 PM

    All we’ve heard from Bronco fan is ‘we don’t need Osweiler. We can win it all with a mediocre quarterback and our top five defense ‘.
    We’re bout to out.

  56. brenenostler says: Mar 11, 2016 1:49 PM

    I mean I guess he can win if the team around him is already good. But I highly doubt this is the only QB they’re bringing in

    I’ll have some of what he’s having.

  58. iknoweverything2 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:49 PM

    I would think most would say that the Broncos Def should be really good again next year. That being said all you need and all Manning did was manage the game and not loose it. The running game and Def/special teams will win games. Your QB will make some plays but just manage for the most part. That being said even if your a fan or not, why not bring Tebow in? Like him, hate him, don’t think much of him or what ever he wins!

  59. thegonz13 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:49 PM

    Shouldn’t they have started by trading for a starter, THEN getting its backup?

  60. tajuara says: Mar 11, 2016 1:50 PM

    He will probably be either third or second (at most) string QB.

  66. imodan says: Mar 11, 2016 1:53 PM

    Denver Bronco’s………shot blown. Sold the future of a consistent contender to win one untainted SB and even that went south with the HGH questions about Manning hovering over them. Let’s be real, the foundation already has huuuuuge cracks in it starting at the most important position on any football team, QB. It was nice seeing you Denver. See you in relevancy land again in about 20 years. That of course assumes you don’t resort to that nasty little habit of cheating the salary cap. Enjoy the butt fumbles as a nice little parting gift.

  67. bryonneufeld says: Mar 11, 2016 1:53 PM

    They keep saying Elway has a plan, I just can’t figure out what it is yet.

    I think Broncos should just draft a QB in 1st round and run with it. Maybe have an open competition between all three guys.

    Whoever plays can’t be worse that what we had last year.

  68. armchairqb says: Mar 11, 2016 1:53 PM

    See you back in the playoffs in 2025, Denver.

  69. quicktaker says: Mar 11, 2016 1:53 PM

    This headline made my heart drop. The possibility of Sanchez starting the year for the NFL champs is depressing.

  70. goingthextramile says: Mar 11, 2016 1:54 PM

    Looks like Kaepernick to the Jets then. Broncos are “set” at quarterback now. LOL

  71. bonniebengal says: Mar 11, 2016 1:55 PM

    I think this has to be for their backup position. I’m sure there is more to come.

  72. sariff420 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:56 PM

    Despite Mannings numbers last year, there was a synergy to the Broncos team with him starting. For those of you that dont know what that means, look it up. A lot of you seem to think that the Broncos could have plugged in any qb and still won the Super bowl…not true. .Mannings leadership was an immeasurable intagible that just cannot be replicated so easily.

  73. tajuara says: Mar 11, 2016 1:56 PM

    Broncos won with a mediocre QB in Big Bro Manning, so now they think they can win with a less-than-mediocre QB in The Sanchize. Interesting… well, if Von Miller can manage to keep doping up and getting after the quarterback, then I suppose the Broncos may have a pretty good chance, eh!

    ———————————————

    You are probably ignoring that the mediocre Big Bro outplayed Brady in the AFCCG, and that Brady was only able to produce once the two safety starters went down.

  74. rogerWWEgoodell says: Mar 11, 2016 1:58 PM

    The buttfumble, the single greatest play in the history of the nfl.

  75. dirkanger23 says: Mar 11, 2016 1:58 PM

    For those who say he’s a solid backup I say this:

    86 career TDs
    83 career INTs

    That’s not a fluke. His decision making under pressure is awful.

  76. eagles1960 says: Mar 11, 2016 2:00 PM

    Goodbye butt fumble.

  77. jr325 says: Mar 11, 2016 2:01 PM

    Wow so much negativity towards this guy. The buttfumble seems to have clouded people’s memories. But when Sanchez actually had a defense he took the Jets to 2 straight AFC championship games, and was very close to converting one of those in to a Super Bowl appearance. Then the Jets dismantled the team and took away all skills players and things just went downhill for him. It wasn’t his fault though, after those first 2 seasons the Jets didn’t have anyone on the team who could get open to save their lives

  78. milehighmagik7 says: Mar 11, 2016 2:02 PM

    All he has to do is play to the same level Peyton did last year and I’m pretty sure he can do that

  79. plum54 says: Mar 11, 2016 2:02 PM

    Elway must be taking HGH ( left over from a certain ex players wife), getting in shape to play!

    logicalvoicepft says:

    The winner is Mark Sanchez. Now he gets to sit behind RGIII and probably win another Superbowl. Definitely has a chance now that he is out of the blackhole that is the Eagles franchise.

  83. bencoates57 says: Mar 11, 2016 2:03 PM

    From Peyton Manning to Brock Osweiler to Mark Sanchez. Only the U.S. at large has fallen harder and faster than the Broncos organization.

  84. scmems07 says: Mar 11, 2016 2:09 PM

    For those who say he’s a solid backup I say this:

    86 career TDs
    83 career INTs

    That’s not a fluke. His decision making under pressure is awful.
    __________________

    I know these guys are nowhere near the same league, but Namath had more Int’s than TD’s in his career, Farve has the record for Int’s in NFL history. Sanchez is very capable of being a solid fill-in QB for any team.

  85. realdealsteel says: Mar 11, 2016 2:10 PM

    I watched Sanchez a few of those games when the Eagles won 10 games a couple of years ago, and Sanchez did well and even had a few 300 yard passing games.

    When a team is stacked, Sanchez can get the job done. If the Broncos can fix that running game, Sanchez can win them 10 games with the defense they have.

  86. Rdog says: Mar 11, 2016 2:10 PM

    Wow. I really hope he’s their backup. If not, I have lost all faith in John Elway.

  87. rollotomasi14 says: Mar 11, 2016 2:14 PM

    The only thing funnier than that headline is how delusional most Denver fans are right now.

  88. gregbrotz95 says: Mar 11, 2016 2:14 PM

    You guys aren’t very intelligent if you really think the Broncos traded for him so that he could be the starter.

  89. shaggytoodle says: Mar 11, 2016 2:15 PM

    I would have went with Nick Foles… but good luck Denver.

    He did help the Jets get to AFC Championship games under the advice of don’t mess up hand it off and let the defense do the rest.

    So maybe this will help him kick it old school…. but as of this moment the AFC West seems like it us up for grabs.

  90. jaimelh02 says: Mar 11, 2016 2:18 PM

    If Sanchez choose number 6 he’ll be the same number as Bubby Brister when he took over for Elway

  91. intrafinesse says: Mar 11, 2016 2:19 PM

    I hope Sanchez get the opportunity to start.
    To show the AFC that he’s improved, and to be feared.

    Hahahaha
    Ok you got me. He’s terrible.
    It would be funny to see a team have to start him for several games.
    And to give up anything for him, thats just hilarious.

  92. tbozek1 says: Mar 11, 2016 2:22 PM

    Mark Sanchez = THE ANSWER

  93. jr4real says: Mar 11, 2016 2:23 PM

    Sanchez is terrible under pressure. Horrible. Why on earth do you sign him? Ever.

    Bring Bubby back for gods sake.

    Been a heck of a week for Denver.

  94. steelerben says: Mar 11, 2016 2:29 PM

    Unlike everyone else here, apparently, I like the move.

    If you need a quarterback to take a team on their shoulders and make huge plays to bail everyone out, you’ve got the wrong guy. But, if you’re looking for a guy to hand the ball off 35-40 times a game, throw quick passes off of play action, and generally manage the game: the Sanchize is just the guy you’re looking for. He excelled in his first few seasons by riding the defense and running game to the AFC Championship by staying out of the way and at only 4.5 million dollars, he lets you have enough cap space to breathe.

  95. jason9696 says: Mar 11, 2016 2:31 PM

    Didn’t the New York Jets with Mark Sanchez as their starting QB beat the New England Patriots in Foxboro in a playoff game several years ago? Not a lot of other quarterbacks can say that.

    I have officially went from OK to needing to puke. There is no way I can imagine Elway and Kubiak even discussing this as an option. Either they are proven correct or this will be the butt, of all jokes. In Kubiak’s words, “we’re fixin to find out”.

  100. dlux36 says: Mar 11, 2016 2:43 PM

    2 years with the Eagles:
    12 games as as a starter
    18 TDs – 15 Ints – 4 fumbles lost
    5-7 W/L (0-3 in 2015)

    To give up any pick for a stiff who would have been cut smacks of desperation and a fear Kap, RG3 or Fitz may elude them.

    Bradford to Denver on draft day, get the old lame gang back together!!

  101. truorangenblue says: Mar 11, 2016 2:44 PM

    Many of you will be eaten your words, Sanchez not only has a heart for his heritage, but for his game as well. Elway would not have brought him to the Mile High otherwise…

    Just sit back and watch a repeat, and that’s all I have to say.

  102. whoknowsnothing says: Mar 11, 2016 2:45 PM

    The Eagles just traded the best QB on their roster and you got dopes ready to name streets after their GM. You can’t make this stuff up

    This is why they are constantly on the losing end. The pro-eagles fervor is mounting. These idiots can taste the preseason championship floating through the air and it’s still only March.

    Been saying for days now that Elway knows a thing or two about QBs. I said he’d rather come out of retirement than overpay for Fitz. I was wrong! He’d rather have Sanchez! I’ve said for days now that Fitz has neither skill talent pedigree or age of Bradford Cousins or Brock, even Kaep or RG III for that matter. But I am sure Elway either sees something in Mark and/or he has other plans & contingencies. He has proven he knows what he’s doing. He’s won that division for 5 straight yrs with Kyle Orton, TEBOW, & a good & bad Manning / Brock. So please. Let’s all relax. Proves Jets right. Jets under new & very different regime. Broncos just won a SB. Jets moving in the right direction. Let’s all relax.

    He’ll be good veteran leadership….for how to conduct yourself on the sidelines,where he spends most games.

  114. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Mar 11, 2016 3:38 PM

    Should have kept Osweiler who at least showed he can play under big lights. Why would you put turnover prone QB in a Kubiak’s offense? Look what happened to Matt Schaub. Elway is driving the Broncos off the cliff and nobody can stop him it seems.

    Kalil Mack likes this trade.

  116. alliwantisluv says: Mar 11, 2016 3:54 PM

    Why in the world would hey do that?

  117. bubbybrister/shovelpass says: Mar 11, 2016 3:54 PM

    Some perspective for you donkey-heads:

    Bubby Brister is/was the better number six for both the jets and broncos…

    How soon people forget. Remember when Sánchez was the Sánchize? Everyone thought he was great because the jets were winning. The jets were winning because of their defense. Same goes for the 2015 Broncos. Sánchez is all they need in Denver. The quarterback is not an important part of the team when the defense and running fame are winning games. All the quarterback s expected to do is not lose. Kaepernick and Sánchez are basically the same. Both were made to look good because of the rest of the team. Sánchez is good enough to quarterback the Broncos.

    Wow. They’re giving up already. Bring Tebow back!!!

  120. coloradotennisfan says: Mar 11, 2016 4:02 PM

    MS has consistently demonstrated mediocrity and at times outright horrible play. He has a powerful arm, but his judgment seems poor, maybe not able to read defenses well. Perhaps the pressure of the situation just gets to him.

    The Broncos have been raped (partially self-rape) in the free agent market. The first priority should have been Osweiller. Then they stupidly allow CJ Anderson to get a good offer. It was clear they were going to lose some in the free agent market but they have compounded their weak position with poor strategy. Elway is not looking like a genius now. He seems overwhelmed with the maintaining the team.

  121. mikeremmersisvonsturnstile says: Mar 11, 2016 4:13 PM

    Seeing as how he’ll be here in Colorado, will it be the “Blunt Fumble”?

  122. cubb1 says: Mar 11, 2016 4:13 PM

    Sanchez is almost as bad as Mike Florio’s idea of bringing Tim Tebow back.

  123. lscratchingthesurface says: Mar 11, 2016 4:19 PM

    Is a butt fumble any more dangerous at high altitude?

  124. a1b24312 says: Mar 11, 2016 4:26 PM

    For clarity, the conditional pick traded for Sanchez is for the 2017 draft. It might help to be clear about what the transaction was.

  125. steve11blog says: Mar 11, 2016 4:33 PM

    The dolphins should trade Tannehill to Denver for their first and third round picks and the Phins should draft a qb and start over with the qb whisperer because he sucks

  126. jag1959 says: Mar 11, 2016 4:33 PM

    It’s strange that one of the best QB’s of the SB era won one as a GM without much production from the QB position. It’s even stranger that he appears to be willing to defend that championship by attempting to do it again

  127. twinfan24 says: Mar 11, 2016 5:15 PM

    We’ve been hearing that the Broncos don’t necessarily need a superstar QB with their defense. I would assume they prefer Sanchez is the backup to someone else, but they could still likely at least make the playoffs with Sanchez starting if the defense plays like last year.

    —————————
    No one is giving up two 3rds for Tannehill, much less a 1st and a 3rd.

  129. nyneal says: Mar 11, 2016 5:21 PM

    Wow. The Broncos are really desperate for a QB! They’d have been better off letting Elway start than bringing in the butt fumble guy.

    I can’t believe all the teams who have been willing to pay Sanchez money. Did they not see him play with the Jets?

  130. senatorblutarsky says: Mar 11, 2016 5:43 PM

    Mark Sanchez???? BBWWAHAHAHAHA!!! He’s almost as bad as manning.

  131. TheWizard says: Mar 11, 2016 5:43 PM

    Repeat Champs!

  132. jacktatum32 says: Mar 11, 2016 5:48 PM

    “The Broncos have a quarterback again.

    I suppose.”

    I had just started a beer when I read the opening two lines………then I had to go get a paper towel to clean up after I spit half a mouthful on the monitor…that is awesome!!

  133. jacktatum32 says: Mar 11, 2016 5:49 PM

    Old horse teeth Elway is coming out of retirement and he’s still better than Sanchez at 65 or whatever he is

  134. papatoad says: Mar 11, 2016 6:26 PM

    Sanchez could bring them back to the big show again, it’s possible with the D that they have. Even a backup or 3rd string guy could have a good year! I just don’t see them getting past Brady again tho

  135. ninjapleazee says: Mar 11, 2016 6:59 PM

    Imagined if Roseman ran the front office and Chip Stuck to coaching only…

  136. Lancane says: Mar 11, 2016 7:28 PM

    Funny that people are talking smack, but Sanchez helped lead are far lesser team to back to back AFC Championship Games, has someone who is commenting on here done the same, or even been in the NFL, let alone for 8 years as he has?

    We’re fans, that is all. Elway has had teams with Tebow, a crippled Manning and more…5 time AFC West Champions, 2 time AFC Champions and Super Bowl 50 Champions…I think he has a clue what he is doing.

  137. boltergeist19 says: Mar 11, 2016 7:45 PM

    Talk about full circle. They trade Tim tebow to the jets from Denver then Sanchez to the Eagles and bring in tebow and now sanchez to the Broncos.

    As the Eagles would sing ,”desperado.”

    I hope sanchez starts, that means two wins for us. Sell the farm and draft Wentz give up your 1,3 this year and next years 2 & 3. Low picks and someone will bite and build again. You have a lot of picks this year and next so don’t lose out on time. Why pay for a qb now that’s subpar when you know VM is going to ask for a 100 mill to start negotiating.
    No one is coming out next year if you go 6-10 or 7-9 b/c you will be far down 16-19 to get a solid qb. You can afford to have a bad season after winning it all. Start it now so in two years the d will be young in most key areas to make a run again.

  138. jim699 says: Mar 11, 2016 11:19 PM

    So the Broncos have upgraded at QB this offseason.

  139. ksctychiefs says: Mar 12, 2016 2:44 PM

    as a chiefs fan i thought the broncos had it made in the shade with osweiler…but with sanchez the chiefs d -line and linebackers are pinning their ears back and licking their chops to come after this guy!!!….

  140. liquidchaoss says: Mar 13, 2016 12:17 AM

    Dunno what the fuss is about, Sanchez is an upgrade to Manning. The guy had a QB Rating of 9… Yes NINE in the SB. Sanchez is definitely an upgrade to the old version of Manning.

  141. silvernblacksabbath says: Mar 14, 2016 9:57 AM

    Denver better sign lots of running backs.. They’ll be running the rock a ton…

  142. ibillwt says: Mar 14, 2016 1:48 PM

    if the Choker can win there, Sanchez can.

  143. lorddarkhelmet says: Mar 15, 2016 12:44 PM

    He has all the talent. Going into the draft I honestly thought he was easily the one QB who translated well to the NFL. I think he let all that “Sanchize” talk get to him. Too much partying and not enough studying. Also, the Jets did him no favors with the talent around him. That all said, its up to him now, if he gets this shot he better work for it. Now he better hope the Broncs get him an o-line because last years was pretty bad and they have lost players since
