Default How can we ever be successful if we keep trading away our best players?

What in the hell are we doing? How in the hell are we going to win when we consistently trade away our best players?

Jay Culter -- hate him or love him, but he was one of our top five players when he was here

Brandon Marshall -- he was a beast

Tony Scheffler -- Pretty good damn tight end, top 10 player on our roster

Peyton Hillis -- who knew he was that good. Can't blame them for this

And now, we are trying to trade away Lloyd and Royal for what, mid round picks? Who cares if they requested a trade. I'm sure players request trades all the time, ultimately to be denied by the front office.

We will never be good like this. Hell, they tried to trade away DJ this offseason.

What in the **** is the front office trying to do? Start 19 players on rookie contracts, and sprinkle in three veterans to round out the starting the lineup?

This is bull****. Bowlen must be broke. Why would you not resign Lloyd? Dude is only 30 years old. He lead the NFL in yards last season. Re-sign him. That is how you get better. You lineup players bettter than the oppenent has.

**** our front office. Instead of paying people, they trade them away. We aren't the Patriots. They have their core. We don't.

We are about to the be the Lions circa five years ago. Trade away our best players. WTF

I guarantee you that the front office low-balled Lloyd and Royal. Lloyd was actually a good soldier, performed out of his ass and didn't bring his contract up one time this offeseason. Take care of the guy. He is obviously a matchup problem for teams. Why get rid of him?

As long as Tebow was the QB i'm sure they would be fine with it

And you have no clue what a known headcase in Lloyd is asking for

Toe the line. The Broncos could trade away everyone besides Tebow and you would be with it. Admit it.

We are one of the worst teams in the league and we are trying to trade away our only pro-bowler. That makes sense to you? How do you defend that?

Champ? Champ was a fan base move only. Dude can't even stay on the field. How many years has it been since he has made a major play in a game? 2009? Get real.

...if they are a) in the last year of their contract and b) show no signs of wanting to resign with the team...you try and move them to get something for them.

Also, why dont you focus on the now. Its almost like you are stuck in the 2008 offseason.

Roll with it, giggles, or dont. It wont change what the team will do.

And have you the talent we have drafted in the middle rounds since 2000? We have drafted nothing but nobodies. Doesn't make a lick of sense. What, you guys want another Seth Olsen? Kenny McKinley? Dorset Davis? It's a crapshoot.

These guys don't want to pay anyone. Its all fringe free agents and rookies from here on out.

Derek Anderson is a pro-bowler
Vince Young is a pro-bowler (twice!)

Pay'em. I'm sure they are lowballing Lloyd. This is a last resort for him. Cheap owner, gullible fans. Just give these fags Tebow and they will be happy with anything.

Hell, you are defending trading away our best player for mid-round crap. Get real
