Default 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?

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

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.

I think when all is said and done you're not going to be the only one who owes Elway an apology...many clowns on here are starting to eat their harsh words, many more will also do likewise.

McGahee.

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

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.

Really? You don't think Manning was a better signing then Tamme, Dressen, Koppen and Brooking?

Read the OP. The first two words are "after Manning".....otherwise, this thread wouldn't have lasted more than one post.

People were saying Elway was just another former player trying to be a GM. Firing off names, listing failures.... Matt Millen was mentioned mutiple times, funny how they forgot one former player: Ozzie Newsome. So far, Elway is more Newsome than Millen.

Yep. The thing most folks seemed to discount after he was hired was the fact that Elway has been effectively preparing for this since the day he retired. He knew what he wanted and his role with the arena league and the rest of his interests prepared him for this job.

He's not one of those former players stumbling into the front office with no real thought about how it actually works. He did his prep. He played in the minor leagues so he can be effective once he got the majors.

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.

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.

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...

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

Good call. The Chris Harris UDFA signing was fantastic.

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.
