Default 2012 targets

Two players I'd like Denver to go after in offseason are Matt Flynn and Chris Ivory. Not sure if Ivory is a FA or not but he could be had for a trade. I'm done with Tebow full time QB let's get a guy who has been groomed. Tebow has use in certain packages but isn't the fulltime solution. We have nothing at rb other than Willis who has been good for us. I like ivory a lot.

The Broncos definitely need a QB, but Tebow can't be on the roster when they get one because the Teblowers are so insane.

Not sure how good Flynn would look if he were in an offense outside of Green Bay. Especially if it was Denver. I think he looks good in Green Bay with all the talent around him and superior passing system they have, but would struggle if he had, to be the man for 16 games. That said he is probably better than Tebow.

tim tebow. People actually thought he was going to be a capable QB despite the fact he's completely incapable of throwing the football.

Best bet is for Denver to trade up in their picks and somehow try to get RG3

We need help at HB, TE, OL with Kuper going down, DL, and DB. Should be interesting to see how this draft shakes out.

Why would you want to trade one running QB that relies too much on his athleticism for another?

Agree, but he proved in one game that he has more passing ability than Tebow will probably ever have.

Saying RG3 is a "running" QB is about as accurate as saying Aaron Rodgers is a running QB. Which is to say it's accurate AND a red herring.

Tebow has started 15 games in his career. He has had 0 offseasons training as the starter, 0 full offseasons with the current coaching staff, and only one full offseason overall (as a rookie). All of you who are willing to give up on him are just ridiculous. He has definitely shown enough this year to have earned the starting spot in 2012, and that includes an entire offseason training program as the starter. If he sucks in 2012? Fine, move on. But not yet.

If they are trading, they are going to the top.

Why not move on now? He has shown ZERO progress as a passer.

Matt Flynn comes in without any reps and throws 5 Touchdowns, 400+ yards.

Detriot Lions were right. Tebow is a joke of a QB.

Matt Barkley for 2013 Target.

Exactly. Flynn has a couple of good games on an offense like that and people go nuts over him, smh. Barkley and Jones are both staying in school for the Senior seasons, they could be had in the 2013 draft.

I must admit that I'm intrigued by the whole Matt Flynn possibility. Particularly if he can be acquired via FA without giving anything up.

Matt Flynn is suddenly the most sought after back-up QB prospect following one good game since Kevin Kolb had one good game against Atlanta last year.

Yup, which is why you think long and hard before giving up much acquire him like Arizona did with Kolb.

or matt schaub. Although if we brought in matt flynn we would need to get rid of McCoy since he doesn't run a WC offense.

He is unrestricted FA I believe, so we are talking about FA dollars vs draft picks.
