I want Drew Lock as my starting quarterback. Why would the Broncos go sign Tom Brady, a 42-year-old quarterback who is moving into Peyton Manning territory, circa 2015?
Otto, riding with the kid
Kiz: I asked the good people in my corner of the Twitterverse whether they would rather have Lock or Brady as the Broncos’ starting quarterback in 2020. It was as informal as a poll can be. But after receiving nearly 300 responses, Tom Terrific received fewer than 5% of the vote. I don’t know if it’s more due to the way Lock spins a football or busts a rhyme. But Denver loves Buzz Lightyear to infinity and beyond.
Lock or Brady? It’s such a tough question. But I’d have to go with Brady because I want to see veteran linebacker Von Miller in the playoffs as much as possible. I think this team is ready to contend now if the Broncos have the right quarterback.
Cameron, win-now mode
Kiz: Brady is moving to Nashville? Or Denver? Or Vegas? I wouldn’t bet on it. New England is the only place that truly makes sense for him to finish his career. But as long as we’re dreaming: If New Orleans did something really stupid and let Drew Brees walk as a free agent, he’s one old quarterback the staff here at Kickin’ It Headquarters would push John Elway to sign.
RIP, Irv Moss. He was awesome
Kiz: For more than 35 years, Irv Moss showed me more kindness than I deserved, from the first time he allowed a scrawny young reporter barely able to hit his own weight to play second base for The Post’s softball team. So would you please indulge one more story? Moss was a bulldog of a reporter, relentlessly demanding answers to his questions. In the final week of his life, while in hospice, between bites of ice chips, he asked: “Are the Rockies going to get anything done to help the team this offseason?” Once a bulldog, always a bulldog. Rest easy, my friend.
Philipp Grubauer is not the Avalanche’s biggest issue. The problem is Coach Mannequin. All Jared Bednar knows how to do is switch lines. That has been his only answer for years. The problem is Bednar’s system stinks. I feel you’re the only one who can tell it like it is, Kiz. Who will be the first journalist with the guts to say it?
