He paced the sidelines with his cell phone stuck to his ear as Brandon Allen did not go 3 and out. Instead, the QB that had never taken a snap during a single NFL game made Joe Flacco look like an un-drafted preseason QB that was cut early from the 53 man roster. Elwood had pulled a no-name quarterback out of his ass it seemed. Everyone expected a less than Lynch QB performance, but it was different this time. In the luxury box, Elwood was spitting sunflower seeds and engaging visions of the playoffs. Meanwhile, all the AFC west teams won. San Diego would squash Green bay.
Joe Flacco’s short lived legacy in Denver would be buried by a passed around QB with zero experience as an NFL QB in regular season.
Peyton Manning would sustained a season ending neck injury yet come back to dominate the NFL and never skip a beat. Joe Flacco would sustain a neck injury and Bronco fans would collectively engage in massively hearty sigh of relief as Joe Flacco was relegated to season ending I/R. There would be no billboards.
Joe Flacco’s performance as an $18 million QB did not even rate as Osweileresque. In fact Joe Flacco made us forget about Osweiler’s Houston contract. Flacco would assume the mantle of the biggest QB ripoff in Denver history. The Flacco preeminence would vanish in Denver’s thin air.
Then again, Brandon Allen’s play could be an aberration. He could just be a Paxton Lynch look a like that got lucky. Either way, he inspired the team and played better football than Joe Flacco did all year.
It is now clear why the Ravens traded away Joe Flacco. The smoke has cleared. In lieu of rising to Elwood’s crossed fingered expectations, Joe Flacco continued the swirl of the Raven’s toilette flush. Flacco would not bail out Elwood like Peyton Manning did.
Attached please find PDF drawings for the garage build that we would like approval on.
The red line changes to the drawings are as follows:
1. Ceiling height for the entire structure will be a standard 12 feet.
2. Roof truss pitch will be 6/12
3. the 54 foot wall will be increased to 56 in order to achieve a balance if we change the configuration of the roof to match the left side box out.
4. The end garage door is omitted in favor of a window and a door.
5. The siding will be upgraded to the same 8 inch smart lap siding as the house. The gable ends will employ the same shake siding and corbels.
6. The entire garage will be wrapped to 3 feet with the same stone as the house.
7. The walls will be 2 x 6 x 12 lumber 16 inches on center.
8. The two garage doors will be 11 x 11 doors.
9. The roofing will be the same architectural roofing that was approved for the house.
10. 24 solar panels will be installed on the south face of the roof line rake.
11. 1 foot eave and gable ends
12. the gable ends will incorporate the same roofing brows at the house along with small windows.
The garage will be 70 feet north of the house and square with it. The east end of the garage will be approximately 60 feet from the (east) south to north property line. This location will not obstruct the bulk views of the next door neighbor.
The garage pad will be 32 by 56 and square with the house.
The design guidelines say something about a maximum of 32 foot eves. However, because of the number of solar panels, we need close to 40 feet of open and square space on the roof for the 8800 watt solar array. Please over look the additional 6 feet of eve line.
If the design is too mundane, we can always have the foundation plan revised to incorporate a matching boxout with the same dimensions as the RV boxout. I would then simply double gable it and rock the face to the exact standard as the house. Be advised that I would like to make these changes to the truss and foundation plan only. I would then submit them to you as a courtesy before paying for a permit. Either way, I will be building a very nice garage.
Lastly, we do not want to face the garage doors to the east because it infringes more on the neighbors view and does not take advantage of the sun for melting snow on the pad. In addition, we do not want the garage in front of the Master bedroom window. The lady that owns the green bomb shelter should not have to look into my garage when she looks at the mountains.
The house footprint is well over 4200 sqft. feet from eve to eve and gable over hang to gable over hang. Therefore, at 1950 to 2000 sqft or so, the garage plan is less than 50% the size of the house footprint.
Realize that I have a 16 foot tractor, a 24 foot Sprinter RV, a 25 foot F350, a 22 foot F250, and an old 1951 Ford F3 to store. I also have three garden tractors. I noticed a few folks in phase 2 have massive two story garages while copious others have garage doors that face the street. Many others have garage doors at 45 degree angles to the street. Hence, they still face the street. Sorry but I have too much stuff to settle for a 32 by 32 box.
Because I am at the northern most end of the vale View addition, I must be able to face the solar panels south and possibly west.
Again, per Colorado law, HOAs cannot reject the placement of solar panels. Moreover, the standard practice is to install solar panels that face south. You cannot ask me to locate the garage 300 feet from the house on the north end of the lot because a driveway would be cost prohibitive. It would cost as much as the garage.
Please offer valid advise in addition to approving this plan.
Once I gain approval, I will talk with Fort Collins truss and my engineer for the foundation plan. I will then send you the documents.
I will build the garage to match the house and be extremely aesthetically pleasing.
One last thing, I will have to make a road for cement trucks at the south west edge of the ditch. It will be just like the road that transitions the ditch where the dumpsters are. I will plant grass etc. There is no culvert so that is not a concern. It just needs to be 10 feet wide. The other scenario is cracking the $30,000 concrete job. Your call…..
If we look back at Elwood’s selection of Joe Flacco and its ramifications, we see some logic.
Shanahan never engineered a team for draft picks. He always played better than .500 football year after year. Elwood on the other hand, seems to intentionally set up the Broncos for failure.
Think about it. If Joe Flacco plays well, the Broncos make the playoffs and the Broncos get a huge post season payoff. If he sucks, the Broncos go 2 and 14 and get a spectacular first round draft position. He bolstered that prospect by recruiting Scangarello as offensive coordinator.Collectively, Elwood then has a Bronco team with shitty coaching, young receivers, and an over the hill Quarterback that cannot convert 3rd downs to save his grandmother.
The Broncos will put Joe Flacco on injured reserve. He will then not play another snap. If he happend to win a few games during garbage time, he would not only cost the Broncos millions, he would screw up the draft order.
Brandon Allen is an insurance policy.
There are no winnable games left in 2019 for the Broncos. Baker Mayfield will beat the Broncos. Josh Allen will come back to haunt the Broncos with a win. the rest of the Bronco opponents will pay their respects as Brandon Allen is the second coming of Chris Simms.
Yupp, Shanny never played for draft position. For Elwood it is all or nothing. If he doesn’t have a veteran quarterback to bail him out, he plays for draft position. This suggest that Shanny was a much better GM than Elway will ever be.
John Elway has demonstrated extreme ineptitude when selecting Post Manning quarterbacks. Then again Case Keenum was actually stellar compared to Joe Flacco. While Joe Flacco has a better arm, Case Keenum scrapped until the end of the game for a win. Joe Flacco, on the other hand, simply goes through the motions. In fact, there is no difference between Joe Flacco’s inability to score in the second half and Trevor Siemian’s demonstrative 2nd half malaise. Trevor Siemian engaged in the malaise for a million bucks. Joe Flacco cant do shit for almost $20 million. Trevor Siemian gave it his best shot. Joe Flacco goes through the motions. His play does not support his vanity or ego on the field. In reality, he is only hanging around to earn his $18 million.
We could give Joe Flacco a break. More than he already enjoys. After all Scangarello is a complete down grade from Bill Musgrave. I mean, an idiot off the street could make better play calls. There is a reason why the 49ers really sucked last year. Scangarello was part of that reason. We all thought Kubiak’s post Manning play calls sucked. Scangarello makes the Kubiak post Manning malaise look like an adventure in success.
Bill Musgrave was making enormous gains putting the Broncos back on track. As a reward, Elwood shit cans him and picks up the village idot for offensive coordinator.
It is quite clear that a high dollar over the hill quarterback and an idiot from the 49ers will never bail out Elwood like Manning did. In addition, with all the Broncos that are coming up for free agency, Elwood has to pick up someone like Joe Burrow and a bunch of rookies that have the attitudes to fight for it. Otherwise, his cap is maxed out. He has no room.
Joe Flacco plays like he is burned out.
Flacco is faced with starting at the bottom and dragging the Broncos up a long AFC West hill. He is faced with an offensive coordinator that should not be here. He is also faced with a general manager that changes coaching personnel like a student sharpens pencils.
Elwood hates mobile quarterbacks that add the running dimension to the offense. He likes old tall dudes that get sacked in the pocket. He won with Manning, but he went down in flames with Flacco. Given that utter lack of third down conversions, Flacco is just a slight upgrade from Paxton Lynch.
Elwood believes in keeping young quarterbacks off the field until they rot out. He does not believe in letting young talent learn the ropes of winning in the trenches. The Broncos let John Elway sink or swin right out of the box. He was allowed to learn how to win. Elwood needs to pick up Joe Burrows and see who is the last man standing in preseason.. However, keeping Scangarello around is both incompatible with Joe Burrows Or Drew Lock.
Bronco fans are getting sick of Elwood’s inability to create even .500 football. Whats John Fox up to these days?
Give Peyton Manning a call and beg him to be the Offensive coordinator. Tell him Brodhead sent you. Cry on the phone if you have to.
There will be a test in the morning. Let this be an omen to you.
There be some badasses down in Louisiana this year.
Drew Lock was supposed to be a good deal. He was supposed to come into training camp after being drafted in the second round and be everything that Paxton Lynch wasn’t. Instead, Drew Lock could not compete with or distance himself from Kevin Hogan or Brett Rypien. Of course, after a tragic preseason, Kevin Hogan got the boot and was replaced by this Brandon Allen fella. A guy who has never taken a snap in a regular season NFL game.
As far as Joe Flacco, he will go on I/R and not see another snap as a Bronco. Just as he was beat out by Lamar Jackson after being injured, he will now be overlooked in favor of Allen, Lock or Rypien. As it is, the Broncos cannot bank their team’s future on Joe Flacco. But hey, Joe Flacco won a Superbowl and went to Disneyland.
In Denver, Flacco will be lucky to hold the clip board during the last 2 games of the season. To save himself from the embarrassment, he should use his neck injury to extricate himself from the NFL and move the hell on. It is either that or suffer the humiliation of being overlooked in favor of rookies and QBs that have never played on an NFL field during the regular season.
If Flacco was Jake Plummer, he would have quit yesterday and saved his dignity. Then again Plummer was 7 and 4 and on his way to the playoffs with the Broncos before Shanahan lost his mind. Flacco is sitting at 2 and 6. If past is prologue, Flacco wont have the ability to win another game even if he is healthy. He will ride the I/R bench for 6 weeks. He wont play another game in Denver in 2019, and be cut on the Monday following the last game of the season. Denver was his last hurrah.
Elwood must now start looking at another QB draft prospect. At this point in time, Joe Burrows looks enticing.
Like Elwood, Burrows is a coach’s son. He was breast fed on football.
Of course, Elwood will be too dense to pick up this fella. He will put all his marbles with Drew Lock and take the Paxton Lynch expressway.
The dude has guns and a cannon along with the Newhouse thighs.
This could be a smart version of Tim Tebow.
About this time, Elwood would love to have Tebow running over middle linebackers for the win given that Flacco cant complete worth a shit.
See ya later Joe. It was fun while it lasted. Think of the bright side: you won a Superbowl after Rahim Moore phucked up.
I pretty much stayed away from blogging about Joe Flacco and his coming to Denver. I pretty much wanted him to succeed for the good of the Broncos and the Front Range. Previously, I had blogged about Trevor Siemian and the trifecta of shitty quarterbacks in Denver. In the end, I basically felt like a blogging ” Dracula” sucking the life out of people.
Trevor Siemian came on like gangbusters after Peyton Manning road off into the sunset with his long neck and his football helmet manufactured forehead silhouetted against the light. He would ride off on Thunder in all the glory. Thunder would rear up, whinny and then roar off into the distance with “the Sheriff” high in the saddle. There would be no thoughts of Rex Grossman or being traded off by Indy. The disciplined hall of famer would check a 2nd Superbowl off of his bucket list and settle into stupid commercials and watching Tom Brady.
Trevor Siemian would eventually be no Peyton Manning or even Kyle Orton, for that matter. The boy gave it his best shot and he was at the precipice. Ultimately, the injury prone dude would be sent off packing even though he was an inexpensive option to keep around. Elwood would elect to spend millions on Case Keenum.
The list of Post Manning Elwood quarterback selections is long and inconsequential. For several seasons, Bronco fans have been treated to one irritatingly shitty quarterback to the next. Many of his selections made Josh McDaniels and Kyle Orton look like hall of famers.
Case Keenum would play his heart out and looked salvageable. Instead, Elwood would opt for Joe Flacco at double the cost of Case Keenum. If we tally all the money that Elwood spent on quarterbacks since Peyton Manning, the bill would be simply atrocious. In addition, if Elwood did not own Denver, the fans would acknowledge that John Elway does not know a good quarterback from his ass on the toilette.
In the mean time, the once dominate Denver D-line has exhausted itself. Of course, the trend would continue with Joe Flacco at the helm.
At this juncture, Joe Flacco should either quit football or void his contract with the Denver Broncos. In reality, Joe Flacco seems to have only wanted the money and it shows. His acquisition by Elwood is more of a ripoff than when Osweiler went to Houston. Osweiler went to the playoffs. Flacco sucks. Osweiler gave it his best shot. Flacco is going through the motions just for the last of the money it seems.
Flacco has made millions. However, the fire is gone. Flacco should use the neck injury to extricate himself from football and save his legacy. He has been to Disneyland.
Lastly, Elwood screwed up when he let Bill Musgrave go. Musgrave was on his way to burying the Kubiak malaise. Instead, he picks up an offensive coordinator from a really shitty 49ers team the previous season. The jury is still out on Fangio because we feel sorry for him. I guess the Italian style O on his last name precludes his being on the Josh McDaniels/ Saint Jospeh performance report scale. At 2 and 6, he is immune it seems. Then again, Elwood selects new revolving door coaching personnel every other year. Sanders saw the writing on the wall and left. 49ers get a premium clutch receiver. Broncos get Scangarello and plays up the middle when the box is stacked. Scangarello sucks.
The question is who is the epicenter of suckdom, Scangarello or Flacco or both? To be fair to Flacco, Elwood needs to shit can Scangarello and call up Bill Musgrave. Then, if Flacco still sucks the jury is out. Of course, Joe Flacco needs to ask himself if his millions of dollars and his beautiful family are enough to sustain him. Plummer bailed and never looked back. Is it time for Flacco to bail?
As far as Elwood, the shitty quarterback musical chairs continues. Oh my word.
Say what is Tim Tebow or Kyle Sloter up to these days?
Joe Flacco is a really good quarterback with a massive arm. He is a complete and glaring upgrade from Case Keenum. He is not at the end of his career. Joe is at the beginning of several bad ass years in Denver. His tank is topped off.
The Broncos did not win against the Raiders. So what! There will be plenty of opportunity for Derick Carr to fall on his face, and for Gruden to get his ass kicked. In reality, the Broncos felt sorry for the Raiders given it was the last game in the Black hole.
What we did get to see is Flacco’s talents and his quickly adjusting to a different team, different coaches, and different everything. The dude is the real deal. He reads the field 10 times better than previous Denver quarterbacks. When he finds a receiver, the ball is delivered like a missile on target no if ands or Jake buts.
It is not Joe’s fault that the D could not stop the run and Yiadom go burned a dozen times. We all remember when Champ Bailey got burned only twice in one game, and we made a big deal out of it. Yiadom got roasted so many times that he was put on a rotating skewer. Meanwhile, Bradley Roby is killing it.
It is not Joe’s fault that 17 dropped a ball on the numbers in the end zone. If the ball was caught, the game goes into overtime.
Looks like Joe Flacco knows how to exploit Sutton. There will be hell to pay.
The only negative take away from the loss to the Raiders was how the Bronco D-line has regressed over last year. We had great expectations that Fangio’s D line prowess would manifest itself into the sack machine from hell. As it was, Fangio’s D was not even as good as Saint Joseph’s. Whats up with that?
I look forward to Joe Flacco’s learning curve accelerating.
Keep the faith boys. You have found your footing. Now get it on!
Good job Joe!!!!
Thanks for coming to Denver and making Bronco football fun to watch again. Elwood has his man!!!!!
All is well in Broncoville.
Oh, and just wait till we get those fat Raider O-line phuckers at Mile high later in the season. We will go full ” Mecklenberg” on their asses.

Three Brodhead brothers and a son did not spend time on disease ridden prison ships and winter at Valley Forge to see this great nation turn into a a corrupt Democratic Socialist shit hole modeled after the KGB, NAZI party, and North Korea. It is time we made “the stand!”
As a result of the 911 bombings and the dot com bust, George Bush and a willing Congress and Senate conspired to shit-can the 4th Amendment and create a massive Computer Surveillance Industrial Complex. The patriot Act was supposed to be used for foreign terrorist, however, it quickly expanded to “Prism” and the wiretapping of all things internet and electronic. The 4th Amendment and right to privacy was obliterated while secret FISA courts were created. However, unlike public judges that are elected and subject to scrutiny and transparency, FISA court judges are simply chosen by the deep state. These selected FISA court judges can then be easily manipulated by other associated federal agencies.
George Bush, Barack Obama, and a host of Federal agency leaders lied to our faces about the wholesale surveillance of the American people. Of course Edward Snowden would blow the whistle on the CIA and NSA and expose the violations of our 4th Amendment rights. It seems that the NSA catalogs everything we do digitally and stores it in Bluff-dale, Utah.
Watergate was a traffic ticket compared to FISAGATE. Watergate was limited to Nixon’s cabinet and a few individuals willing to break into the DNC headquarters at the Watergate hotel. FISAGATE includes the assets and capabilities of several different federal entities, as well as, the Obama DOJ. Instead of unaffiliated rogue Watergate players, FIAGATE is about federal collusion at the highest levels and the abuse of tax payer dollars. In fact, the FISAGATE activity is more aligned with the behavior of a dictatorship than a Republic.
In order to restore our 4th Amendment, Donald Trump will have to release all documents related to FISAGATE.
The planned structure is 1 million or 1.5 million square feet and cost $1.5 billion when it was completed in May 2014.One report suggested that it also cost another $2 billion for hardware, software, and maintenance. The facility is estimated to have a power demand of 65 megawatts, costing about $40 million per year.
From “The Hill”
Here are the documents that have the greatest chance of rocking Washington, if declassified:
1.) Christopher Steele’s confidential human source reports at the FBI. These documents, known in bureau parlance as 1023 reports, show exactly what transpired each time Steele and his FBI handlers met in the summer and fall of 2016 to discuss his anti-Trump dossier. The big reveal, my sources say, could be the first evidence that the FBI shared sensitive information with Steele, such as the existence of the classified Crossfire Hurricane operation targeting the Trump campaign. It would be a huge discovery if the FBI fed Trump-Russia intel to Steele in the midst of an election, especially when his ultimate opposition-research client was Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). The FBI has released only one or two of these reports under Freedom of Information Act lawsuits and they were 100 percent redacted. The American public deserves better.
2.) The 53 House Intel interviews. House Intelligence interviewed many key players in the Russia probe and asked the DNI to declassify those interviews nearly a year ago, after sending the transcripts for review last November. There are several big reveals, I’m told, including the first evidence that a lawyer tied to the Democratic National Committee had Russia-related contacts at the CIA.
3.) The Stefan Halper documents. It has been widely reported that European-based American academic Stefan Halper and a young assistant, Azra Turk, worked as FBI sources. We know for sure that one or both had contact with targeted Trump aides like Carter Page and George Papadopoulos at the end of the election. My sources tell me there may be other documents showing Halper continued working his way to the top of Trump’s transition and administration, eventually reaching senior advisers like Peter Navarro inside the White House in summer 2017. These documents would show what intelligence agencies worked with Halper, who directed his activity, how much he was paid and how long his contacts with Trump officials were directed by the U.S. government’s Russia probe.
4.) The October 2016 FBI email chain. This is a key document identified by Rep. Nunes and his investigators. My sources say it will show exactly what concerns the FBI knew about and discussed with DOJ about using Steele’s dossier and other evidence to support a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant targeting the Trump campaign in October 2016. If those concerns weren’t shared with FISA judges who approved the warrant, there could be major repercussions.
5.) Page/Papadopoulos exculpatory statements. Another of Nunes’s five buckets, these documents purport to show what the two Trump aides were recorded telling undercover assets or captured in intercepts insisting on their innocence. Papadopoulos told me he told an FBI undercover source in September 2016 that the Trump campaign was not trying to obtain hacked Clinton documents from Russia and considered doing so to be treason. If he made that statement with the FBI monitoring, and it was not disclosed to the FISA court, it could be another case of FBI or DOJ misconduct.
6.) The ‘Gang of Eight’ briefing materials. These were a series of classified briefings and briefing books the FBI and DOJ provided key leaders in Congress in the summer of 2018 that identify shortcomings in the Russia collusion narrative. Of all the documents congressional leaders were shown, this is most frequently cited to me in private as having changed the minds of lawmakers who weren’t initially convinced of FISA abuses or FBI irregularities.
7.) The Steele spreadsheet. I wrote recently that the FBI kept a spreadsheet on the accuracy and reliability of every claim in the Steele dossier. According to my sources, it showed as much as 90 percent of the claims could not be corroborated, were debunked or turned out to be open-source internet rumors. Given Steele’s own effort to leak intel in his dossier to the media before Election Day, the public deserves to see the FBI’s final analysis of his credibility. A document I reviewed recently showed the FBI described Steele’s information as only “minimally corroborated” and the bureau’s confidence in him as “medium.”
9.) The redacted sections of the third FISA renewal application. This was the last of four FISA warrants targeting the Trump campaign; it was renewed in June 2017 after special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe had started and signed by then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. It is the one FISA application that House Republicans have repeatedly asked to be released, and I’m told the big reveal in the currently redacted sections of the application is that it contained both misleading information and evidence of intrusive tactics used by the U.S. government to infiltrate Trump’s orbit.
10.) Records of allies’ assistance. Multiple sources have said a handful of U.S. allies overseas — possibly Great Britain, Australia and Italy — were asked to assist FBI efforts to check on Trump connections to Russia. Members of Congress have searched recently for some key contact documents with British intelligence. My sources say these documents might help explain Attorney General William Barr’s recent comments that “the use of foreign intelligence capabilities and counterintelligence capabilities against an American political campaign, to me, is unprecedented and it’s a serious red line that’s been crossed.”

There were a few good highlights during the Bronco/49ers preseason game. The deep left bomb to Sanders that was negated by a penalty comes to mind. Then there were the reverses that netted some gains.
Devante Booker acquitted himself well and has established himself as a consistent “Sammy Winder” style asset. David Williams was showing that his size and speed are a better alternative than the “minnimees” that Elwood recruited of late. With the loss of Theo Riddick right off the bat, our eyes had turned to the second time Bronco for possibilities. All was going well for Williams until he tipped a catch that turned into an interception.
There were some good aspects of play calling, however, we saw some Kubiakesque calls up the middle as well. It was clear that George Aston is no Janovich.
We expected way more from Freeman and Lindsay. Instead of picking up Theo Riddick, Elwood should have concentrated on Freeman, Lindsay, Booker and Williams and their hands in the back field.
lastly, Booker is a 3 or 4 yard per carry back with good hands. He is no frills but he gets the job done. Elwood confused all the issues when he picked up Riddick and all the little minnimees.
David Williams can haul ass when he has a lane. he then has the size to punish defenders for added yardage. He is way better that Juan Thompson. A fella you kept around even at 1 yard per carry. Do not be stupid and release Booker. He does everything you ask every single time.
Bolles needs a talking to about penalties.
Flacco needs to quit being so hyper vigilant about the way he looks on camera and get down and dirty. This is not a beauty contest and we dont care about how he looks in leotards. Get over yourself and get it on…Oh and be happy….Show some humor and some smiles….We need that after the last 3 seasons.
