I have to admit that this offseason is a ton more hilarious than the offseason where we hired Josh and lost Cutler. I grade this offseason an A+ so far in hilarity.

No moves with holes every where...guess there ready to throw Tebow to the wolves once again. Hopefully he comes prepared! I wasn't thinking any huge name players but there are quality players to be had and play in positions we need filled.

It all really hinges on Manning, so voting before he makes a decision is pointless.

D. No moves but we haven't even managed to sign our own FAs,other than
Prater ( tagged).

This year is Waiting for Godot...a terribly boring event.

And Elway has managed to alienate Tebow and probably low balled Bunkley ( now a necessity to sign) .

Can still salvage something if Manning can make a decision soon, so not a complete fail yet. I have no doubt we will sign someone. LBS still are all out there.

Good news is that, at least as of this afternoon, we haven't overpaid anyone.

I'm getting a kick out of the meltdown here..
EFX said all along: 3rd tier (value) free agents and build through the draft.
Just sticking to the plan...

Bowlen has shown a willingness to spend when we're close. (superbowl)
I don't think we're close yet.

Peyton looks to be a pipe dream - which may turn out to be a good thing.
I would love to see it work though.

"Has no grade point average. All courses. Incomplete!"



Just looks like they're going to do some Extreme Cheapskating when the dust settles.

When they inquired about Manning all we heard was b****ing about going back in time to "shanny" over paying for FA's.....now when they don't dive head first into spending frenzy, people b****ing about exercising caution or restraint.

God, some of you clowns won't ever be happy.

They're not showing restraint, they're sitting by the phone waitin fee Peyton like 14 yr old girls.

The phone won't ring though because Xanders is on hold with Domino's and Papa John's.

Yep. Because everyone complaining about them sitting on their thumbs also complained about them looking to throw big money at Manning.

Oh wait, nope. This is a discussion group full of different people with different opinions and those who didn't want to spend on Manning aren't generally the same people now b****ing about our inability to sign anyone worth a **** in FA every single year.

The OM isn't some single entity of hive mind thought.

Dude, they want to replace 16-18 of their own FA's, to me that means upgrades. So how exactly does 3rd tier FA's upgrade those 16-18 guys?

They only have 6 draft picks this year.
