Did anybody notice that....

John Engleberger
Dewayne Robertson
Ebenezer Ekuban
Nate Webster
Jamie Winborn
Marlon McRee
Boss Bailey
Vernon Fox
Calvin Lowry
Heranza Daze Jones
Tim Crowder

all remain unsigned by any team?

Is it any wonder why the defense was so bad last year? Everyone on this list was a starter (at one point) and now they are all out of work.

Nate Webster?!?!?!??! But he loses his helmet and dances after 7 yard gains at a pro bowl level! His intensity is unmatched!

Le Shock!

That is quite the list. Remember having to talk yourself into believing they were just a couple of players away from dominance.

Hopefully, this is a more solid all-around D this year and there isnt such a huge turnover from can't-play-in-the-league-no-more to solid-for-a-couple-more-years.

Hopefully these rookies on D really step up bigtime, it's needed. All of the rookies, actually, not just the D rookies.

It was obvious we werent just a player away from a Superbowl

The defense needed to be gutted, and Shanny had no clue what he was doing

Then again Slowik killed all their careers by allowing them to get owned with his kindergarten schemes

I bet the gameplans on defense were written in crayon

Looks like Winborn was one of the Falcons final cuts. Sort of surprised he didn't catch on as a back-up/ST player somewhere. He had his moments.

pretty bad team that shanny and co assembled. Most starters for a team wouldn't just end their careers, they'd be a backup, starter on another team. I remember the game when we had calvin lowry and barrett starting for safeties...that had to be the worse safties in the history of the nfl.

my sister lives in phoenix and had a beer w/John Engleberger a few weeks back. I guess his girlfriend is friends w/my sisters. Get this, I guess he dresses like a complete slob, and he still lives with his parents in virginia. haha, he is to cheap to get his own place. He is apparently retiring, but I thought it was funny to hear about him.

Reading that makes me feel better about this year and all the changes. An overhaul had to be made. We really had a terrible defense, like expansion team bad.

I'm a little surprised Dwayne and Ebenezer didn't catch on as backups somewhere. Both are solid guys that I would be happy with as #3 rotation guys in a 4-3. That said both are a little older and on the downside to be sure, so a team would have to be willing to give up on a project player with upside for the benefit of mediocre consistency.

Marlon McCree signed with Jacksonville before camps started.

I caught a lot of flak from many of you for suggesting that he was a terrible player. ;D

Actually you need to do some more research for this thread. Calvin Lowry is in Detroit and I think Winborn signed with Atlanta.

If there was one indication that the team is going in the right direction, its this list in the context of where they are now. How did we even win 8 games with this bunch?

I'm not a fan of internet acronyms but this occasion does call for a LMFAO!

Yep, we were going to throw FA money and all our draft picks at the D, and leave our dominating offense intact! The only thing between Shanny/Cutler and global domination is Bowlen and McD! IT'S NOT FAIR! HE DESERVED ONE MORE YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is it any wonder why the defense was so bad last year? Everyone on this list was a starter (at one point) and now they are all out of work.

I think they are all just working out at the park across the Street from Dove Vally for a year until Shanny gets another gig.

So just to review: McCree was cut by the Jags. Lowry was cut by Detroit. Winborn was cut by Atlanta.

Nice correction and grade though Hilarious!

Regardless if two or three of these players barely made a NFL roster elsewhere, they were all on Denver's active roster at one time or another last year. Many in starting roles. No wonder this team collapsed.

This list pretty much sums up why a change was necessary. I have a hard time understanding those who still want to dispute that Shanahan and the Broncos needed to part ways.

A compelling argument can be made that Slowick is actually a great defensive coordinator. Look at the crap talent he was working with. It's amazing the 2008 defense wasn't a lot worse. They did play good enough for the Broncos to win more than 8 games.

Kudos to Slowick. Now, he just needs to dump Shanny the crappy GM.

I don't remember all that clearly, but how many of these guys were opening day starters?

What percentage of our 2008 opening day starters couldn't even land a job in 2009?

If you look on the first page I acknowledged your thread. I didn't see it prior to making this thread and they are a little different. I was focusing on starters who are now out of a job. Regardless, I didn't mean to duplicate efforts. My bad.
