Kickin’ It with Kiz: Would Broncos Country trade Russell and Sean for Shedeur and Deion right now?

We have already learned what we need to know about this Denver Broncos team. Blow it up. Start Jarrett Stidham at quarterback the remainder of this season. Shedeur Sanders, here we come!

— Michael, doomsayer

Kiz: Would Broncos Country take Coach Prime and his son the QB right now as a package deal? And I don’t mean next year, after the NFL draft. How about right now, before the Broncos onside kick to open the game against Washington? If the staff here at Kickin’ It Headquarters took a poll on a glorious Sunday afternoon, would a majority of orange-clad fans in Empower Field at Mile High vote to trade Sean Payton and Russell Wilson for Deion and Shedeur?

Colorado State coach Jay Norvell brought up his mama teaching him correctly about taking off his hat and sunglasses when talking to adults, thus insinuating that Sanders wasn’t raised properly. Really?

— Chuck, Sko Buffs!

Kiz: With Sanders revered in a seat of honor at ESPN’s cool kids table, it felt like the only way Norvell could get any attention was to pick up a straw and fire a spit wad. It didn’t make a dent. Forget sports. Deion is the most popular pop icon in America right now this side of Taylor Swift. I just hope those intrepid journalists at “60 Minutes” asked Sanders if he would prefer Godfrey or Jason Sudeikis to play the lead role in “Coach Prime, the Movie.”

The CSU Rams now assume the sacrificial lamb role for “Prime Time.” The Rocky Mountain Showdown is more like ancient Roman Colosseum stuff than anything resembling college football as we’ve known it.  For those of you who don’t like football to begin with, it’s about to become uglier, as the game has more to do with greed, macho excess and manipulation by market-driven forces.

— Pete, Arvada

Kiz: If a national championship in football can be bought and sold, here’s betting Louisiana State fanatics would throw Brian Kelly in the swamp for a chance to hire Sanders to do battle with Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Neon Deion is the bigger CU Buffs “star” of the moment, but CU alum Sepp Kuss can produce the bigger sports accomplishment of the weekend.

— Jeff, Paso Robles, Calif.

Kiz: If sports coverage was really more about celebrating achievement than attracting clicks, Kuss would be the big headline in this newspaper and the lead story on every television station in town. The Durango native and CU alum is one stage ride away from becoming the first American cyclist in a decade to win the Spanish Vuelta, which might not be as famous of a bicycle competition as the Tour de France, but it’s every bit as grueling. Here’s hoping that after Kuss crosses the finish line, his achievement is celebrated on the fancy new scoreboard …read more
