this guy was a flat out bust. terrible pick in retrospect. clears up TE battle a little, but he had no chance anyway.

09 draft is falling like dominos
Lets see we got McBath, Bruton, Moreno, and Ayers left

McBath hasnt done much and might be on the bubble
Bruton is a good special teams player, but thats it

Looks like only Moreno and Ayers are potential career starters

When you have a blocking TE sitting there on your 25 name draft board, you gotta make that trade everytime.

Everytime!

Yeah I only see one of those safeties making this roster. Painful draft. At least the first rounders are proving useful.

Yeah, I think Ayers will end up being serviceable and is right now for us a 3 down player at DE then DT on 3rd down. Moreno looks like he is in for his best year yet and looks faster and more agile. The others... bleh

I honestly don't know what any fan saw in his coaching skills. I get that fans grew tired of Shanny but, really did we need to dump him for this turd. 8 picks in the first two rounds should have left us with one super star. You give a staff like the Ravens or the Colts 8 picks in a two year span in like that and they are going to walk out with multiple pro bowlers.

CEH beat me to it.

We sent Colbert to Sea for the 140th pick. We sent Cutler and the 140th (Knox) to Chi for their 2009 1st (Ayers), 3rd (84th pick), and 2010 1st. We then traded the 3rd rd pick to pitt in the following trade: Pittsburgh traded its second- and fourth-round selections (64th and 132nd overall, used to select Richard Quinn and Seth Olsen, respectively) to Denver for two third-round selections (79th and 84th overall, used to select Kraig Urbik and Mike Wallace, respectively).

Chi's 2010 first turned into the gimp WR Barbaro and a fourth rd pick.

So, in a nutshell we gave up Lambchop, Knox and Wallace for Orton, Ayers, Barbaro and Quinn who we just cut.

2? Try 3 if not 4, because of the whole Orton, Tebow Quinn thing. McDip$h!t really boned this team in the efffing a$$. The stink of Tebow isn't his talent. That will be proven on the field. Its his god danm fans. They are Tebow fans first and Broncos fans second. They want him to start no matter what, even if it means sinking the franchise along the way. Tebow maybe a starter someday, but if tell a Tebow fan he isn't ready they act like you just insulted their mother.

Thanks. I'll take what I can get.

But seriously, Saturday night, after the game, on the radio this guy was saying the Orton's 4 drive with 2 TDs and a field goal was "unimpressive". What? I'm not an Orton fan but Orton is the best of the 3 right now. That can change, but Tebow can't even look of the safety right now. You watch the 1st first game. Tebows head wheeling al around and his feet aren't set. And a whole host of other problems.

All you crazy people realize this means he's going to the IR right? Not cut from the team. He's passing through the same waivers we put Josh Barrett through last year when we lost him to the Pats. We put Dell through them earlier this year I believe.

Quinn will likely be back in Broncos camp next year fighting for a job once again.

"i only need a draft board with 60 names on it!" Epic fing fail.

If anyone with a brain knew this from the beginning that does not say much for Pat Bowlen and his advisors.

The Smith pick was a head scratcher from the beginning given the trade of a first for him and the Quinn pick too. Both turned out to be terrible reaches.

I'd say the verdict is still out on Morano and Ayers as well as Beales and Walton too ( I was more upset with him starting two rookies than drafting them but that is another story).

Tebow could still turn out to be very special. I am grateful he got rid of Cutler and Marshall. We still don't know what Bay bay is either.

Sure I wanted him to succede and at the time the jury was still out on the picks. Now it's clear he missed on several.

My main issue with the firing of McD was when they did it with 4 games left and put a linebacker coach in charge. I thought McD should have finished the season. Although when more information came out about spy gate it made more sense. My point of view is we still do not know the whole story but the fact he was allowed to take a job as an OC the very next season seems to point to some gray area otherwise he would have been suspended from coaching in the league for a period of time.

I really thought he was going to have a slick offense. And in many ways he did. I just failed to take into account his ego and age. I think he's just too young. Mcdaniels might end up a HC in his later 40's etc and do really well.

Who could predict a bunch of risky trades, cheating, reaching for a lot of draft pics. I first got a little worried when he ran around after we beat the pats. I was like that was weird for a coach. I grew up watching Landry and Reeves types though. Even Shanny with his evil glass eye was pretty stoic.

It was a horrid hire. I'm really hoping Elway loves Broncos enough to get the right people in the right places so we can not be total ****.

Interesting that Josh saw his first draftee wash out of the league just a month into his first training camp (Blake Schleuter). Yet in Jim Goodman's three drafts - 06, 07, 08 - to this date there's just one washout (Greg Eslinger). John should bring Goodman back in some capacity.

Wow. Right there is the answer to the situation that we're in right now.

I don't blame Shanny the coach and I don't even blame McD the coach.

I do blame McD for this list, as well as Shanny for his many failed picks before that, but more than that I blame the man that gave them the power to make the picks with no checks and balances in place.

That list right there is the difference between us and the teams that are in contention for a SB this year.

Even the Raiders have drafted better than us lately.

Makes me sad. :'(

It was pretty funny actually.


Interesting that Josh saw his first draftee wash out of the league just a month into his first training camp (Blake Schleuter). Yet in Jim Goodman's three drafts - 06, 07, 08 - to this date there's just one washout (Greg Eslinger). John should bring Goodman back in some capacity.

Dumping our scout team and everyone that had anything to do with our up coming draft just a few months before the draft was a horrific move. One of the biggest mistakes we made during the McD era. He said himself he wasn't prepared for the draft and you fire the people that did should have been a huge red flag. I get that he wanted people to fit his system but HE didn't even know who those players where.

and to make matters worse he traded away a first round pick the following year, a year when he would have been vastly more prepared to make a wise selection, for a reach on a corner in a draft he knew he was not prepared for.

Ellis/Pat picked Xanders to be GM and cleaned house from there.

Still, Thursday's moves were a surprise considering comments Bowlen and McDaniels made after the new coach was hired Jan. 12. At that time, Bowlen reiterated statements he made after Shanahan's firing that he didn't anticipate any changes in the personnel department, while McDaniels had said Jim Goodman would have the final say in personnel decisions.

Bowlen acknowledged some “anxiety” between Jeff Goodman and Xanders as they shared duties, and though Bowlen said there was no friction in their relationship, it was inevitable that the one not picked to be GM would have to leave.

http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_11693597


McDaniels didn't come into this organization expecting to take over drafting duties. It fell into his lap because Pat/Ellis/Xanders was too goddamn lazy/incompetent to do it, so of course he wasn't prepared to be GM along with being a Coach.

We traded two mid-round 3rds to go up and get Richard Quinn. Two years later, he gets waived and nobody even puts in a claim for him....

Just terrible, terrible talent evaluation -- possibly the worst 2nd round drafting performance in NFL history (when you factor in Alphonso Smith and Darcell McBath). 3 swings, 3 huge misses.

My bad -- you're completely right, I forgot that we picked up that late 4th rounder as well.

On the other hand, we selected Seth Friggin' Olsen with the 4th rounder (who wasn't even on my 1000-player board in the OM Mock Draft). So -- I think my original point stands.....

The problem is, that when you make such an aggressive move up to get a player you have to be sure that he is the right fit for your team and has shown the ability to play. This isn't a Clarett deal, when Denver select him as bonus pick at the end of the 3rd round.

From my sources, you agreed to sell tickets to a couple of out-of-town Broncos fans at a predetermined price.

However, when you met the fans to close the transaction, you jacked up the price not long before the start of the game. Which gave the two fans few alternative options. They ended up buying your marked up tickets because they didn't want to spend the next 10-15 minutes searching for a better deal while the game was about to start.

I remember reading somewhere that in the early days of the franchise the broncos were drafting out of Street and Smith's draft guide as they had no money for a scouting department.

Drafting out of Street and Smith in 2009 would have been better than McD's draft - decent game day coach, but just awful in player personnel decisions.

i think the issues with the Ayers & Moreno picks are they were expected to be better than they were shown to be in college.
coming out Ayers was considered a run stuffing type of DE with so-so pass rushing skills, but people expected since we were a 3-4 team that he should be Terrell Suggs.

Moreno was a Reggie Bush type at UGA and was shown as such but people expected him to be the new Terrell Davis.

rarely do players become what they were not in college.
i think Ayers and Moreno will be fine as draft picks but they won't be the franchise type of players as expected when they came out.
as the OL & DL improve those players likely will as well.

Gee, pretty hard to do that moron when I live in California and had to ship the tickets Via Fed Ex. Why don't you ask Meck to let you contact Bobby who was the one who bought the tickets. I saw what the price was going for and lowered it $100 for him so I not only saved him $100 , I also knew a Broncos fan was going to be using the tickets. Your sources are either 1) non existent or 2) full of ****. Ask, TGN as he might remember because he hated when people sold their tickets for more than face value. I am not sure if he does it now with the ticket exchange but before you go around talking ****, know your facts. All I can say is ask Bobby who tailgates with Meck. That is the guy who bought them. Now people can purchase tickets elsewhere and probably spend more. I had one twit ask for my Raiders vs Broncos tickets after a few years of giving me ****. My answere was "Sorry, sold them." Actually now, they are on the ticket exchange for anyone to buy. That is how it is when you have to put up with BS from posters like you.
