I certainly haven't seen that...

I've seen some say he wasn't the problem and the 20 million would've improved the team more at different positions, but that's from claiming Peyton and Tim are even in the same stratosphere.

Maybe you guys are too sensitive?

Ok let's venture there....I'm curious which FA's would these guys have signed had we not signed Manning and kept Tebow...and do you truly think the end result would have been different?

How many millions are the Broncos under the cap right now? I know it was posted before but I can't find it.

Edit,. Nevermind. I found the answer.

I'd rather have them lose because of self inducing errors than get blown out when playin their best. 18-1 at home in October for pats. It was expected.
True enough, the Pats hit their mid-season stride two games ago and were in sync all around at home yesterday. But we played them tough the last quarter and were literally two completed plays away (three if you count the McGahee easy dropped pass on 4th and 1) from likely winning this thing as it was.

If Willis keeps both hands on the ball on that last run, which is how he started out the run with the ball totally wrapped up, we get 7 on that drive for sure, and had a VERY good chance for an on-sides kick recovery based on doing so well at that the last few years since Prater has been kicking them.

We get that onsides kick back when down only 3 and there is no way BRady gets the ball back and no way the Pats were stopping Manning and company at that point.

It took US to stop ourselves, even after the terrible 3rd down production on defense and the monster rush yards allowed. We still made a real game of it!

That is something to build on and few, if any, other teams on our schedule will be able to run the no-huddle with the speed and efficiency as we saw Brady run it at home last night.

Brees and NO might come close on offense, if we make no improvements in coverage and pressure on 3rd downs by then, though no doubt we will. However, that game is at Mile High, not the Superdome and their defense is a true sieve.

We do need to take care of business next Monday night and go into the bye in sole possession of first place in the division, having the tie breaker San Diego.

In any event, these clowns on the mane now that are b****in' and moanin' like the little pussies they so obviously are, are meaningless and contribute little of value here in any event. Don't pay them any attention at all .. that's what 'ignore' is for.

We could add a rule that if a given relative newbie poster earns a certain large number of 'ignores' from the bulk of long time loyal OMers, then they are toast. That might be one way to deal with the more obvious and obnoxious little whiners? But otherwise, just ignore them and they will shrivel up and blow away to greener pastures at some point.

Virtually none. It was a free-agent exodus before Manning came on board (Lloyd, Royal, Bunkley, Larsen, Fells)

I just stay away from this place after a loss. I let the trolls have their fun do and cherry pick the threads I read. Usually by thursday you can come in and talk football and I hope for a Broncos' victory on Sunday that usually gets rid of the trolls for the most part.

I don't why you're asking me to answer for other people, but okay....

Guys like Tulloch/Lofton would've been a huge upgrade to our largest area of need. Then you have All-Pros who are the tops of their positions in weak areas for Denver with Carl Nicks and Reggie Wayne.

You could've gotten all three of the above AND Michael Bush for Peyton's price tag.

To me, Peyton is the GOAT and I've defended him against accusations of:

- ****ty teammate that throws his OL under the bus
- Only wants money
- Can't win the big one

Etc.

...but I can see the Devil's Advocate argument for sure. Especially at this age. We don't have time to gel. A QB who's closer to 40 than 30 means "Win now" and we're still 2-3 regardless of how rough our competition has been.

If you think any legit WR or TE signs here with Tebow, you are crazy. I could see a RB or OL given the running game we had.

Nearly all of us wanted a MLB. I would say that the $4M/yr they gave Mays would say that the $5.5M/yr that Lofton and Tulloch got wasnt out of the price range (ie due to Manning). They just thought that Mays was a better value... and were DEAD wrong

Do you keep TT or dump him? I can see your devil's advocate side and agree. I'd would also have drafted Weeden and plugged him in (and traded TT too).

Good theory HOWEVER as some can attest, I rather enjoy having the Broncos in Denver, in fact I'm visiting at the end of the month for the Saints game.

If you've ever been there, you would understand that I would go to Denver any day of the week over Winnipeg.

That and I think AmericanBroncoFan is an A-Class troll and is really KCDud in disguise from when he was banned.

I liked him until he unveiled my master plan about moving the Broncos north.

For the record, Bowlen did spend a lot of time making a name for himself as a lawyer here in Edmonton....................it's all coming together nicely.

Seriously this is getting out of hand after a loss the trolls come out in large and some even have avatars pretending to be Broncos fans, look I get rivals talking trash but if your sporting a Broncos avatar and your trolling other Broncos fans that really care about their team. I get the fans upset about a loss I get that but I am talking about the ones claiming to be Broncos fans but trashing them every chance they get for example "AmericanBroncFan".

I don't know if its the bitter uneducated Tebow loving crowd thats causing this but its gotta stop.

Criticism of the team is cool I understand that Joe Mays was horrible today but trolling and being a blatant douche is another thing.

so we are 2-3 its not a big deal its a long season.
Curious to know how many people you've got on your ignore list before you started this thread.

I don't like it when someone calls "Champ" as "Chump," but it's editorial. More than the editorial, however, I'd like to see more analysis of why a fan would editorialize as such - and to that end, I've asked him to do so. My first instinct is not to ban for editorial - but at some point empty editorializing becomes trolling. So we'll see...

Discussions aren't typically about everyone agreeing with each other.

I agree, but what is funny is the people you only see after loses that really are hear just trolling. No_Broncos, LostKnight are two I can think of. Anyway, I'm not a fan of banning just to ban people. I have not yet figured out how to put someone on ignore. It seems to be beyond my reasoning level.

I don't even have to use the function. I just ignore them. Easy enough. You just skip over their posts.

True, but you only have an approximately 30% efficiency rating when using this with me.

Calling Champ Chump is one thing

Calling Champ "lazy for the last 4-5 years" was the most ignorant statement I have ever read on this board. When you don't get thrown at except 2-3 times a game and still have the mental makeup to stay in the game on every play Champ would never be called lazy by anyone with .001 % of football IQ.

I would have banned him just on that comment alone. That to me is "empty editorizing" and adds zero value to the board
