Rich Scangarello, the 49ers quarterbacks coach for the last 2 years, he of the molding of The Beater, Hoyer, Gabbert, Jimmy G, and most famously, Big Dick Nick Mullens, was hired by the Denver Broncos to be their new offensive coordinator. He is joining one Vic Fangio, he of the fairly recent defensive success of the 49ers, and more recently the Chicago Bearsss.
Looks like John Elway is working overtime to try and develop a team that can actually win games. Denver’s biggest problem? Well, it’s Elway’s position. Quarterback. Since blowing off Colin Kaepernick 4 years ago, the Broncos have been a mess of shitty QB play, and truckloads of wasted money. 1st round pick Paxton Lynch hasn’t played a down since 2016, Trevor Siemien is a backup who didn’t play a down last year, Brock Osweiler, the $72 million man led the Broncos to 4 losses and no wins, and Case Keenum, the latest tire fire for Denver led the team to a 6-10 record. Denver’s defense did them no favors, but still and all, they are desperate for a bona fide starting QB.
Which leads right to Nick Mullens. He blew a LOT of people away with his play last year, and 3-5 record notwithstanding, played outstanding football and threw for over 2,200 yards and 13 touchdowns in 8 games. Which of course projects to 4,500 yards and 26 TDs over the course of 16 games. Good enough for 6th in the league in passing yards per game.
Far be it from me to want to see him go, and I would hate to see him go (anyone interested in a 1969 Dart slant-6? You know, The Beater?) but Mullens just became a giant blip on Elway’s radar with the hiring of Rich Scangarelli.
Think we can fleece ol’ horse-face for some picks and players for BDN? If the price is right, we have to. My best-case would be for Lynch to trade The Beater for a mid-level pick. All we could get is a 4th but it’s something.
I would keep Mullens at least until we see what Jimmy can do. He is still just a kid and who knows what he is really capable of. More draft picks would be good but mullens is a player and I think he’s worth keeping for the time being.
I thought you guys said there’s a QB controversy and I should stay in Santa Clara. Now I should be traded for picks? Can’t you make up your minds?? Trade Beathard to Denver for picks? Good luck with that. Stick with Big Dick Nick and we’ll make it to 7-9. Progress!
Oh Bullit. Thanks for stopping by.
It all depends on how desperate Elway is. They go through another shitty season of crappy QBing from Keenum, they’ll finally be calling for Elway’s horse head on a plank. Or in Pat Bowlen’s bed. By then Mullens’ stick could be sky high.
Elway himself called Keenum a short-term guy, so Denver is in the market yet again for another QB. He’s as desperate as one can get. Even in Denver where Elway is God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost.
Why is Chuck trolling my blog again? Can’t a group of wingnuts talk football without being bothered by the liberal lower middle class?
Wow. Bullitt AND Skeebers? A new low here in Ninerland.
I bet you Niner fans wish I was still on your team. I’d still be blowing championships and getting punked by Richard Sherman but we’d probably be a playoff caliber team. And I’d have a QB whose genitalia is actually smaller than mine, if possible. Although his pornhub girlfriend is hot AF…
Find a better way to spend your day, Bullitt.
Speaking of WRs, I like this kid out of NC State. Kelvin Harmon. We could prolly get him in the 3rd round. 6’1 218. Not super fast (4.550 but he gets the ball.
Chuck, you delusional dweeb, now you’re saying we should draft WR? Do I need to pull up your comment from last week where you said all we need is one edge rusher to turn it around like the Bears? Make up your minds, Charlie Krueger/Unca Chuck.
In the 3rd round, you imbecile. How fucking stupid are you? Yeah, let’s draft 6 pass rushers.
Put down the glue, Bullitt.
God, this blog has gone to absolute hell.
Chuck, I love it when you let the Trolls on your sight for a little while, it makes our comments look like we are geniuses compared to them
Hah. Bullit needs reassuring I guess. What is do so funny is Bullit whining on Skeebers blog that I can shut down his bogus accounts with 2 clicks. I’m leaving them up now just to shame him.
I mean, these are solid gold turds.
Would everyone be good if the Niners choose Josh Allen
I believe I would happy with that.
I’m cool. I’d rather be a Raiderette.
I’ll be fine with it if he works out lol.
Yeah, I’m all for Allen.
We really need Chuck to stop trolling our blog with multiple emails and aliases. We’re just trying to talk Niner football and then he comes over and harasses poor Bullit for no reason whatsoever. Also, stop drooling over the Chiefs as if you’ve been a fan for years.
Soooo cute, skippy.
Home teams for me today.
Yeah, That’s how I think this goes.
New thread is up.
I’ve been a Chiefs fan since 1970 because fuck the Raiders. Except that’s not true at all and I’ve really hated them for all of the times they’ve crushed the Niners at Arrowhead
