According to Mike Klis. Said his throwing motion is still a tad long but fires with decent zip and accuracy.

That is amazing... a tad long? Tebow went from a painfully long to a tad in a few months. :yayaya:

While I like the idea, and it's most likely going to happen anyway, the author draws makes a serious logical leap with that title. It said Tebow was 3rd for one series, and then Brandstater was 3rd for the next one. How is that "passing" him on the depth chart?

Yes, but maybe you will learn that catchy thread names will be thrown to the back with someone's accurate title wins over. If you want your thread to have hits, just put the word Tebow in it. You failed at this.

Hope Tesus can do it by 2011. There's no way Denver will want to pay market price for Orton after this year. I don't buy into the whole Bowlen is broke theory, but Orton is going to get a huge pay raise after his pro bowl next February.

That's funny but essentially true. They're likely to lock up Dumervil and maybe Kuper by season's end. They aren't going to throw a ton of money at Orton even if he goes nuts this year unless Tebow, Quinn and Brandy all just implode into suck. I suppose they could even then use the franchise tag and then trade him.

Works for me!

I can be happy that we aren't starting Orton anymore and complain that McDaniels let another pro bowler walk.

I also agree with you on the Bowlen thing. I have never believed the money troubles theory.

Brandstater sounds like a woman from the QB perspective. Watch the passing camp video for today on the Broncos website. He doesn't lower his voice at all. It's at the very end. It's actually quite hilarious.

This is disappointing though. I thought a year for Tom would have had him holding up better.

hes going against this years first round pick, the starting QB and the guy brought in to backup and compete with the starter this year. odds are stacked against him making the roster regardless of how hes is doing in teh 1-3 reps he gets.

Really? I haven't seen anything about him not knowing the playbook. That's disappointing, I thought he was supposed to be a fairly intelligent guy. To the point of the thread, isn't this what everyone expected? Orton, Quinn, Tebow in that order on the depth chart. We had Orton, Simms, Brandy. As I see it, Simms sucked so we dumped him and got Quinn in to back up Orton. At that point we had Orton, Quinn, Brandstater. Pretty much an obvious starter, a "vet" back up and a "potential" guy. Then we were able to draft Tebow, a "potential" guy with more potential. So now we get Orton, Quinn, Tebow. Same as last year with all three spots upgraded. Our starter has a year in the system and should improve. Our back up has a bigger upside. Our third stringer has more potential. Sounds to me like McD made some good moves. Setting up the franchise to be stronger at the position immediately, and taking the necessary risks to improve down the road.

Hey, I'm just trying to keep a Broncos-related thread on the main page. The pile-on can and will get it moved and there's not a whole lot of Broncos news right now, so it seems a shame to have to move what used to be a good thread.

I'm pretty sure the release of Chris Simms, Casey Weigmann, Andra Davis, and Brett Kerns all had to do with how they played in 2009.

So basically everyone he's cut that wasn't camp fodder was due to performance issues.

And I'm sure Hillis committing a penalty, missing his assignment, or fumbling the football on the majority of his chances in 2009 had nothing to do with him being traded. Its all a big conspiracy where McDaniels tricked Hillis into being unable to do his job (unless that job consists of running up the gut repeatedly against a scrub D we'd already put up about 200 yards rushing on and not being able to handle any other play).

Wow.

Get real!
Kern?
When Kern got released, neither you, nor anybody saw that coming. We were 6-0 at that point. And to bring a 38-year old punter to replace him, was an epic failure and much worse performance wise than what we've had in Kern in the first place.
To say Andra Davis and Casey Wiegmann were released for performance issues, throws all your credibility out the window.
Simms. Yes. The guy should have not lasted that long.

Hillis. It is unbelievable how people try to justify the release of Hillis. You've gotta do better than that. The epic failures of Moreno in scoring opportunities in short yardage situations, trumps Hillis' fumbles and penalties by a long shot. Hillis played a very limited role last year. What did he have...13 carries or something?
How many fumbles did Moreno have?
You know, sometimes you need to look at the performance of others so you can put things in perspective.

Knowshon fumbled 4 times, 2 of those were orton hanging him out. On one he was destroyed by ed reed behind the line, the other I forget who it was.
Hillis was an idiot, just like you. But you fail to realize, likely due to the fact you never research the points you are trying to make, is that he was traded, not released.

Wiegmann played like **** and was dominated regularly, a fact you would realize if you actually watched games. Davis was replaced by Ayodele, who is a very similar player. Little leaner and faster. Yesterday in an interview they said it was likely he'd play inside. Kern, who knows.

To say Andra Davis and Casey Wiegmann were released for performance issues, throws all your credibility out the window.
Simms. Yes. The guy should have not lasted that long.

Hillis. It is unbelievable how people try to justify the release of Hillis. You've gotta do better than that. The epic failures of Moreno in scoring opportunities in short yardage situations, trumps Hillis' fumbles and penalties by a long shot. Hillis played a very limited role last year. What did he have...13 carries or something?
How many fumbles did Moreno have?
You know, sometimes you need to look at the performance of others so you can put things in perspective.

So what you're really saying is that you have the football IQ of a five year old and I'm wasting my time.

Good to hear. Have a nice one.

I'm just telling you, that other than Simms, no one else got released/traded due to performance issues. If they did, show me...

I know we traded him to acquire Quinn...
We're talking neing traded, released for a reason other than performance related issues...
From the get go last season, Hillis never figured in the offensive plan of McDaniels. He saw limited activity not enough to form a solid opinion on his performance.
That being said, we would have to see how he'll perform in Cleveland -albeit a crappy team- this year...

No, we saw enough.

First on ST he fumbles the ball and gives it to the Browns on our 30ish yard line.

The next game he lines up (at home) false starts b/c he didn't know the snap count.

The next time he was in he lined up wrong and they had to call a timeout b/c he didn't know what he was doing.

The next time on MNF he leaves his lane and allows Hester to return a kickoff for a TD against us.

Then later in the year he ran for decent yardage in garbage time against the Chiefs, who had already mailed it in at that point, and whom we were running against the whole game before he came in anyway.

At the end of the day I think given the body of work we know why he was buried on Shanahan's depth chart and then subsequently buried on McDaniels'.

We traded a guy we couldn't use for a QB that we could, who at worst is an upgrade over Chris Simms, and at best might start for us.

Every move he makes is justified. Anybody who dares to see it differently is crucified. I'm yet to see the Mcdaniels defenders to admit one single thing he;s done that they don't agree with.
Everytrhing he's done has a purpose no matter how ridiculous it is.
But that's a thread for another day...

Anyway...
It's ridiculous to say that Hillis was buried on Shanny's depth chart. No schit!
The guy was a rookie, was he not?
Nobody knew how good he was or if he was even going to see some action.
It wasn't until all the injuries to our running backs that he was given the opportunity to play. And play he did. He performed real well and showed he was an impact player. The moment he got injured in the game against KC, it impacted our offense and cost us a couple of games.

Everybody was expecting Hillis to continue to have the same type of season he had in 2008.
McDaniels however in my opinion, wouldn't allow his ego to win with Shanny's offensive players, who we now know are all gone but Royal. I'm talking receivers and RB's. McDaniels wanted to win his way and with his own people, and we know how that turned out, don't we?

You have to wonder why Hillis wasn't part of the bread and butter of his offense.
I'm sure it was because he couldn't learn the so complicated McDaniels offense, huh? ;)

Then later in the year he ran for decent yardage in garbage time against the Chiefs, who had already mailed it in at that point, and whom we were running against the whole game before he came in anyway.
Hilarious. This is what you failed to see.
Garbage time or not, nobody in our current roster ran the ball like Hillis did in that game against the chiefs. That was vintage Hillis right there. That's what you saw in 2008. You mean to tell me he performed that way because it was the chiefs and because the chiefs' "mailed it in"?
That's too funny of a way to try to turn the cheek the other way and not see what we were missing.
We've played a couple of bad teams and our running game still left a lot to be desired...

And who exactly are our playmakers for '10?


The OL is young and injused, as is WR.

QB is a joke.

RB? Moreno can't make his own.

It's 8-8 with an easy schedule;
