Considering how piss poor the talent was when Josh got here, not to say that he killed it year one, the upgrades made in that second draft and SINCE in Johns next two are outstanding..

Please remember that the entire 08 D except for 3 Champ, DJ and one other were crap canned and NONE of those cut started again in the NFL with most of them out of the NFL the next year..

add to that the almost entire cast of RB, TE and at least one of the starting OL were not starter by EOS..

Now after cutting/trading cutlet, BM and TS before the season or after it. there was not much left of mikeys personnel by the time that John came to town..

Some whine and complain today about some of those losses while others celebrate them depending on how emotionally attached they were..

since IIRC 2000 only one of mikeys rounds one through three daftees have been resigned and that was DJ, who some love and many just want to move on from..

there was not much in the cupboard long term talent wise at the end of 2008..

Picking up
Code:
1 	22 	Demaryius Thomas 	WR 	Georgia Tech
2 	45 	Zane Beadles 	G 	Utah
3 	80 	J.D. Walton 	C 	Baylor
3 	87 	Eric Decker 	WR 	Minnesota
in Joshes last draft, all of which are solid starters helped get us back on track.. and Ayers seems to be lighting it up also the jury is still out on KM but looking like a Broncos exile or Death sentence to me..

John coming in and hitting it strong in his two years with only one real miss has restored faith to many..
