Elway's best signing?
 
After Manning, it has to be Dan Koppen. It's crazy how fast he has adjusted to this offense and has had a hand in helping it run smoothly. I just read he has zero sacks and only one penalty. Who would have thought bringing in a vet center could prove to be one of the most important moves we make?

If you're only talking this year.

Are you counting draft choices? Because I shouted for Marcell Dareus over Von Miller in the 2011 draft... and owe Elway an apology.

socalorado 11-08-2012 07:35 AM

On a side note, whats the status of Kuper?

I hear you. My brother and I were both furious at the Von Miller pick. We have both eaten copious quantities of crow since that day.

McGahee.

If you are talking about this year only it's a tossup between Tamme, Dreessen, Koppen, and Brooking.

McDman 11-08-2012 07:49 AM

Guess I should have said free agent signing. Koppen has killed it.

Obviously the Von pick was incredible. And itms now looking like the Rahim Moore pick is going to pay off. The guy hasn't missed a tackle all year.

If Elway continues this and Brock works out, crossing my fingers, we can be a long term player in this league.

McGahee has been awesome and I like him a lot but I think coming in and playing center is tougher than RB. Either way, it's a good argument to have when it's about who is the best signing.

Koppen is definitely a signing that is looking better and better as the year progresses. It's one of those moves that looks almost prescient at this point.

11-08-2012 08:06 AM

Harris and Carter. Jim leohnard and Holliday are starting to have big role.

Carter has been a very pleasant surprise. He was getting abused in the preseason.

A center would mean nothing, without a credible quarterback to direct the offense. Peyton Manning spits in your pizza...;)

Smiling Assassin27 11-08-2012 08:30 AM

loss of walton has been addition by subtraction, but would only be noteworthy if the replacement was any good. Koppen is AWESOME. He really reminds me of Nalen in a lot of ways.

Good call. The Chris Harris UDFA signing was fantastic.

Mountain Bronco 11-08-2012 09:09 AM

Lots of good signings. Koppen, Harris, Carter, Tamme, Dressen, stokely, Ramirez. Good draft as well with Wolf, Hilman etc... He should win executive of the year!

baja 11-08-2012 09:09 AM

Good thread.

How about his worse signing?

Andre Cadwell?

Tracy Porter (because of the money)?

Joe Mays?

Ty Warren (injuries)?

Mountain Bronco 11-08-2012 09:09 AM

The best may be to come as well as FA are once again going to want to play for the Denver Broncos!

Mountain Bronco 11-08-2012 09:11 AM

Porters Money isn't bad considering it is one year, now the Mays signing might be bad, but with Warren Elway did the right thing in getting his salary reduced.

11-08-2012 09:16 AM

I'll take Miller and then John Fox then Jack Del Rio

That was more because replacement refs were throwing flags at him for playing tight coverage and not because he was badly beaten

I don't see anything wrong with the Caldwell signing. It is good to have veteran depth if needed. I think had Stokley not been here he'd be producing decently. Btw, the Stoke signing was gold.

Porter isn't too bad. If he can get healthy he will be fine.

Joe Mays was the only move that just perplexed me. I still don't get it to be honest.

They rolled the dice on Warren and it didnmt work. Unfortunate for both sides but our DTs are playing fine either way.

Elway wasn't in the FO when McGahee was brought in. Are we talking best additions before Elway too?


Edit: too early in the morning for me. Brain fart

Ummm, what? He most certainly was.

Elway was hired in Jan of 2011.
McGahee signed with us in July of 2011.
