I don't think that is the case... at all.

I think people are forgetting the mess this team was in when the season ended in january... Followed by lockout / followed by a truncated FA period camp schedule etc. Point is the deck is completely stacked against them this season. I think they have done an acceptable job so far and deserve more time to enact their "plan".

Let me give a quick example. Several years ago a former friend tried to rip me off through a business we co-owned. Long story short... I removed him from the business and walked head first into a **** storm not unlike the 2010 Broncos. Now I would love to tell you that I walked in made every correct decision and turned everything around in a matter of 6 months. Unfortunately life does not work that way... I didn't make every correct decision and it took a hell of a lot longer than 6 months to fix the mess my personal McDaniel's created... Point is we are jumping the gun, and it is way too early to characterize them as a bunch of incompetent thief's.

By this point in the McD regime we had traded our QB, blown the entire draft, suspended our WR, and were in the process of giving the all screen offense a go... A resounding WTF had been earned.


Now don't get too defensive Rev... I think everyone did a good job. I just think the tone was more helpless than it should be at this point.
I dont listen to these and this is one of the reasons why. Mike is allowed to talk. He has not been an objective fan since Shanahan got rightfully fired. He hates everything about the Broncos starting with Bowlen and Im sure he hates Elway now too.

Having him on there discredits the whole thing for me despite my desire to want to listen to guys like Kaylore and Rev talk.

Nothing...NOTHING will ever be good enough. Mike is of that instant gratification generation. This team has about 6 NFL starting players, and 18 or so quality backups. Its going to take years to undue the mess of ****ty (Defensive) drafts from the two prior regimes. Add to the fact that McDaniels traded away most of the good ****ing offensive talent (sans Cutler, **** that douchenozzle Im glad he's gone), and we have a LOT of work to do.

THere shouldnt be any bright sides section but to summarily categorize everything about the team from the Owner on down to the waterboy as crap is ludicrous and emotional drivel that's not worth listening to.
