So I'm bored and decided to come up with my All-Shanny squad. This is the team of the best Broncos ever brought in by Coach Shanahan. In fairness, we also have the All-Bust Shanny Teams below.

Very good list. Not very many controversial selections.

Here's one I disagree with though:

FOR THE DRAFTED TEAM

Deltha O'Neal and Tory James were better cornerbacks (even during the time they played in Denver) than Dominique Foxworth.

My God you're bored! Ha!

You have no idea, I've been making calls for work all day - and doing this in between.

Wow, Dre Bly over Darrien Gordon.

Yeah I thought about it for a while. I went with Bly because I think he's at-least played as well as Gordon did with no-pass rush and under Slowik's coaching while Gordon benefited from Robinson's blitz-happy scheme and Donatell's superior position coaching. I'd have no reservations going the other way though.

Here's one I disagree with though:

FOR THE DRAFTED TEAM

Deltha O'Neal and Tory James were better cornerbacks (even during the time they played in Denver) than Dominique Foxworth.

Good point. I suppose I gravitated to Foxworth because he played here longer but O'Neal and James did have their moments.

I am not so sure Keary Colbert was a bust. With the depth last training camp, it was hard to expect much of an impact from him.

Guys like Andre Reed and Robert Brooks brought higher expectations in the 3rd WR role and didn't deliver.

I am not so sure Keary Colbert was a bust.

He was. They overpaid for a guy nobody wanted, outbidding only themselves, and then he couldn't even stick with Seattle and they had warm bodies at the position. Bust. And I find it troubling that I was certain he'd be a bust the minute I saw the signing hit the wire. I shouldn't know more than the FO.

Reed and Brooks didn't get bonuses, Colbert did. The fact he netted a draft pick is nice - but that doesn't change that Shanny thought Colbert was going to be our #2 WR this year.

I couldn't think of another QB we brought in that failed and what he was brought in to do more than Ramsey. Plummer was the only FA QB we brought in as a starter and he was mildly successful with a Pro Bowl season, AFC Title Game Birth, Division Title, a few playoff trips and even some team records. Beuerlein, Frerotte, Kanell and Ramsey were brought in as backups and Ramsey was by far the worst of those guys in his limited action.

darrel hackney? there are a ton of QBs worse then him, if you are gonna make a worst of list it should be of players who are/were starters. if its gonna be all backups/non starters then i can include nearly everyone who never made it out of training camp and stayed out of football.

The bonus was chump change by NFL standards.

Denver's investment in Colbert was justified. The retirement of Rod Smith and release of Javon Walker forced Denver to bring in a lot of depth and play the odds with more bodies. Entering training camp last July, WR spots #2-5 were all up for competition. Losing out to Eddie Royal, Brandon Stokley and Darrell Jackson is hardly a knock on Colbert.

Michael Dean Perry (say what you want about his laziness in the J-Ville game but he was a dominant tackle for us in 1995-1996 and made the Pro Bowl as a Bronco in 1996) over Chester McGlockton on the FA success team.

Tyrone Braxton (he was brought back by Shanny as a FA in 1995 and made the pro bowl in 1996 and led the league that year with 9 picks) over Fergeson on the FA success team.

Not busts- any 2nd day draft pick. These guys aren't expected to be starters, that's why they were drafted on the 2nd day. You can't have 2nd day busts.

So that eliminates- BVP, Miree, Swift, Jamie Brown (dude was traded for a 2nd after starting here anyway, who cares what he did elsewhere?), Banks, Claxton, Jerry, Johnson, Yeboah-Kodie, Ken Brown, Darwin Brown

Others:
Foster- sorry, despite his rep on this board, he started for 3 straight years, including a 13-3 team, RT was not an issue on those teams. Was never the LT people hoped he would be, but he was drafted at #20 and did fine when he played.

Eric Brown- was starting as a rookie no a 14-2 SB Champion. He played well in his time here, he left when his rookie contract was up. That's not a knock on Shanahan.

He was a 4th round pick that Shanahan netted 2 picks out of, one being a very high 3rd and I think the second was a high 4th. Who cares what he did in Carolina? Shanahan traded him for more than it took to get him, great job.

Didnt Shanahan draft pick Rod Smith up as a UFA? Pretty sure he did and his omission if that is the case is grounds for expulsion from Bronco Nation.

Also, not to nitpick here but Shanny didnt draft the last three drafts, the Goodmans did so Cutler shouldnt be on there, Griese should.

Entering training camp last July, WR spots #2-5 were all up for competition. Losing out to Eddie Royal, Brandon Stokley and Darrell Jackson is hardly a knock on Colbert.

Colbert hadn't played well since his rookie season. No one else we know of was competing with us to sign him.

I think you guys are taking the list a bit too seriously. I was clowning around more than anything. No real investment was put in Hackney, however Ramsey was expected to give us a very dependable backup - which was not the case.

For the FA/Trade team, Rod Smith has got to be over Stokely.
Shouldn't Rod Smith be on the FA/Trade list, instead of Stokley?

See 2kBack's post, Rod was picked up before Shanny took over. No expulsion for me.

See Herc's post, and again - BVP is just funnier.

Tyrone Braxton (he was brought back by Shanny as a FA in 1995 and made the pro bowl in 1996 and led the league that year with 9 picks) over Fergeson on the FA success team.

I went back and forth on Al vs. Bert, I went with Bert but could've one either way. I forgot about MDP, I could've gone with him over Chester although Chester was an underrated part of our reasonably effective run defense for a few years. I didn't go with Braxton for the same reason I didn't go with Sharpe as a FA, seeing they were both with the Broncos previously. Seeing I put Ian Gold on the Bust FA team for his signing in 2005 - I should be beaten with spoons :)

The one guy I thought was completely worthless was Bill Musgrave. No defense respected his arm.

Dante Jones should get the nod at one of the LB spots. He along with Britt Hager were signed by Shanny for camp '95 along with Michael Dean Perry and James Jones, both from the Browns D Line.

Hager was a backup and played decent backup ball. But Dante Jones was supposed to be a starter for us and he did nothing but stand on the sidelines with a myriad of injuries. Shanahan was REAL DOWN on Dante Jones.
