Default So VJ is staying....how do you improve?

1. Fire several coaches and replace with actual coaches.
2. Sign Cousins
3. Draft and sign a RT and depth
4. Draft a real ILB
5. Resign Latimer

What else?

Improvement is possible - playoffs are a pipe dream with VJ.

Determine if you want to rebuild, or if you still feel this is a championship caliber team that just needs a QB.

You have to know what your focus is then make decisions in line with that.

Cousins will be transitioned tagged. But Elway has to bring in a vet QB, or, have absolute confidence in a drafted QB to immediately start. By keeping VJ, Elway has all but guaranteed a vet QB will be coming in IMHO.

If you are cutting Talib, then rebuild because the D drop off will be to the point where its close to the level of suck that the O is.

Step 1. See VJ is being retained.
Step 2. Complain on the OM.
Step 3: ?
Step 4: Profit.

Once we retained VJ we put ourselves in tank mode. Prepare to be last place again in AFC West

- Sign Cousins. TBD if he's tagged or not.
- Sign Hubbard or Waddle at RT, BUT Koudaijo or however you spell it didnt look THAT bad at RT.
- Find another TE to go with Butt, be it be FA or draft.
- If we got Cousins, find a way to get Barkley, he'd make the team be a playoff/SB contender, he'd have that kinda impact.

Unless the Broncos are willing to make Cousins the highest paid QB in NFL history, a contract so large, not even the Skins will match it, I don’t see Cousins in Denver. Remember, the Broncos will have to outbid all other suitors, AND the Skins. Fact is, even if the Broncos get Cousins to agree on a contract (let’s say 6 year $120m with $60m fully guaranteed and paid in the first 2 years) the Skins will match it.

End story.

1. Cousins
2. Best OT in draft
3. Josey Jewell in 3rd(maybe a pipe dream)
4. Improvement from within with Butt and Carlos Henderson
5. Real slot wr (if that’s not Carlos)

*obviously a new ST coach

Convince Kubiak to be Assist. HC-Offense. Tell him he doesnít have to put in the usual grind that coaches normally do.

Get a real QB. I donít even care who at this point, as long as the guy can figure out which team to throw to.

Fire DB coach Robertson, and bring in the best DB coach money can buy.
Do the same with Olivio & STís.

Find a top slot receiver, and another TE to help Butt.

Either try again in the draft for a great punt returner, or just keep Sunshine there.

Draft better in the 2nd & 3rd rounds, and all offensive players.

Thatís it folks...itís that easy!

They need more talent on offense, starting with QB.

along with a new ST coach we need better punter and kicker !
we have no impact TE !
O-line coaching and talent needs huge upgrade and depth.

Concessions and grounds keeping are solid.

If kirk gets transition tagged he will immediately sign it and get his free agency next year.. he will not allow himself to be held hostage by dc.

Why would he do that? You donít think he will get a stupid big, long term offer from another team? But youíre right, he can sign it and get paid, what, $35m for one season?

How many times do I have to drop hints that Cousins would take less here than to remain in DC? Stop thinking heís going to get top 5 Money.
