let us look at the Senior Bowl and all its variables. A group of strangers comes together along with a hodgepodge of different coaches. They then practice for a couple of weeks. Specifically, the quarterbacks only have a few reps with the newly assembled wide receiver and tight end corps and have a limited opportunity to develop timing and synergy with the players. They have to make due with the players they are given.
Kyle Lauletta seemed to be able to immediately adapt to new players and playing schemes and excel. He built synergy on the field immediately and was a demonstrative gamer. If we look at the tape, we see a quarterback that does everything that Siemian cannot do. He reads the field, throws to any player on the field, and is extremely accurate. Lauletta’s ability to adapt, his super quick release and his deadly accuracy are things to behold. When we look at his highlights, we also see a guy with a cannon arm that can drop the ball on a dime.
The Bronco fans want a grassroots QB that they can watch grow. Kyle Lauletta is the exact same size as Elwood at 6′-3″ 216. Lauletta can scramble like Elwood and has a skill set that is much like Joe Montana and Drew Brees.
Elwood needs to retain Siemian, Lynch, and Kelly and bring in Lauletta for the preseason.
Both Cousins and Keenum are not worth the big money and would be a waste of cap. We want a rookie QB this time.
Kyle already has a superior media interaction set and the core of a nasty NFL animal. You can see it in his eyes.
If I am Elwood, I pick this guy up and feed him from a fire hose to include the Denver hurry up offense. I retain Siemian for his Manning Corporate memory.
A good offense begins with a good defense. Defenses keep QBs on the field. Defenses win Super Bowls. Pick up, Lauletta “Elwood,” and use cap space for the D and O-line.
