We've traded winning consistently with a near .600 winning percentage along with playing for AFC West championships every year to battling the Raiders for the AFC West basement and competing top 5 draft picks. FUN!

If McD can do this in just a year and a half, I wonder what it will be like after year 3?!

91', Mike Croel? We selected Deltha O'Neal after the 99' campaign when we went 6-10 if I recall correctly but I think there were a bunch of terrible teams that year and that team had tremendous injuries w/ TD, Elway's retirement, breaking in a near rookie QB with Brian Griese to deal with.

With as much help as we need on the DL and how many great juniors and seniors there are, it would almost be impossible to **** up a top selection. Really. They would have to try their hardest.

1. We get an impact front 7 player

I didn't say winning, i said PLAYING. No surprise, you can't read.

We were very much in position to win the division Shanahan's last two years here despite injuries and numerous rookies across the board but who cares, that's in the past. What are we now besides dog**** on the field, letting the Oakland Raiders drop 59 pts on us at home? They couldn't score 59 pts over a 4 game stretch and we let them do it in 60 minutes with backup QB and a bunch of afterthoughts on offense. We're the laughing stock of the NFL right now... A big fat joke. I hope you're proud, this is the bull**** you wanted ushered in. Now you've got it. How's that ****-burger taste?

Given that I don't believe Tebow is the answer, I believe the Broncos should do whatever it takes to get Andrew Luck, including trading Tebow. He's the best college QB I've seen in twenty years. Even the old hands at Stanford say the last QB they had that was as good as Luck went to the NFL in 1983.

We need to draft an elite player on the DL, like Dareus from Bama. That guy is a monster. I would really love to get an elite safety as well, someone Dawkins can teach for a year or so. The D sucks worse than the O, and I think our rookie O-lineman will grow up for next year.

I think Marcell Dareus is DT in the NFL. I don't see him be effective as 5 techinque player against pro linemen.

So the Broncos can't block well consistently on the OL nor do they have any playmakers on defense, yet some people want the Broncos to draft a QB high in the draft? Yikes.

I think he is versatile enough for a modern NFL defense, which can feature 3-4 and 4-3. Whatever the case, we need young talent on the interior of the DL to complement Doom and Ayers.

While statistically the Titans ass whooping at the hands of the Patriots was a greater point differential, I believe the Pats needed all 60 minutes to achieve that score.

The Raiders woman beating coach mercifully took his foot off our throats with 20 minutes left to play.

Oh and they didn't get their asses handed to them in Nashville. They were on the road.

Your point being? So what, and the Patsies played them in the snow too but the scoreboard is what it is. My point is that IF they as a team could regroup and make a run for it for the remainder of the season...then why can't the Broncos?

The "worst" of the sked is done. If this team can regain some of it's previous composure...there might be a chance of a shot here. I'll keep watching.

If history is any indicator we won't draft DL, we didn't last year when it was stacked with 3-4 people. Right now it looks like safety may the biggest concern to me, Renaldo Hill can't count to 11, he hasn't seen a pass he wanted to cover so far in 8 games and for the life of me I can't work out what he does on the field, Dawkins is on his last legs and Mcbath can't stay healthy.

To be honest one of the only things that may save Josh more time is starting Tebow. I'd be all for it too if we can get some good picks for Orton. He may be a Pro-Bowler this year (continuing our consecutive streak of main starting QB's making the Pro Bowl). Lots of teams out there (Bills) that would love a franchise QB like Orton!

We do need a top ten kick ass NT/DE/RT in the worst way.. IF we go RT high then Beadles can become a stud left guard next to Clady and with a year and another off-season of growth on Walton our Oline might suddenly fix itself ... Still need new Oline coaches other than Wilford and Baratone.

But I really hope we can find a real stud OLineman in FA to solidify an already young line, and put all our draft ammo on the Dline front three and one second on a ILB and another 2nd on Safety..

In the meantime, love watching Lloyd catch the long ball. The guy has ultra sweet hands!

I definitely want to pick DL but if there is a Patrick Willis type of MLB that's available, I might be tempted. And I don't like the idea of trading back in rounds this year to pick up more players. We've already got some nice young talent that just needs to experience. You don't want to just start moving back and getting more average players. This year I'd like to see us just stay put and take the best players available. And obviously the 2 positions I think we don't draft for at all are QB and WR. Everthing else, is open.

The Joker
11-01-2010, 04:37 AM
I'm guessing CB or DE is the pick.

Two big needs on the team going forward and there is some tremendous talent likely to be available when we pick. I'm guessing we go about 5-11, and are somewhere in that 4-8 range.

Ideally I'd want the impact D-Line player we're so desperate for, but I don't know how you pass up a guy like Patrick Peterson unless you're very, very confident that the defensive lineman you're about to pick is going to be able to make it in the NFL.

ScottXray
11-01-2010, 08:52 AM
hell., we may as well go for # 1 if we have pipe dreams..

With that we can trade down, and maybe get two 1s.

Needs are in order:

1. DL (DT (nose ) then DE)
2. DL
2b. M LB
3. Safety
4. CB (assuming we still have Champ or he slides into Saftey slot) If Champ leaves this moves up.

5. RB/TE/OL.

As it stands, if we end up in the top 10 we will have 3 picks in the top 50 or so. Hopefully we can address the D with at least the 1 and both 2s. Not sure if we do though. If we draft O there I will get livid.

I honestly think we will be in position to draft one of these guys who I think will really help the team out:
Marcell Dareus, DT Alabama
Adrian Clayborn, DE Iowa
Cameron Heyward, DE Ohio State
Patrick Peterson, CB LSU

Peterson is so good he'd be worth netting IMO and could immediately step in to the starting role.

Rohirrim
11-01-2010, 10:58 AM
This team absolutely must pick either a DE or NT with this pick. I like Heyward. He can play anywhere on the line, is a great mauler against the run, very disruptive, excellent character and a favorite with his teammates. Doom and Heyward would create some havoc. Plus, he's Ironhead Heyward's kid. He's got lineage.
