Default 104.3 the fan: Clark and Saturday to visit

Just heard it on the light rail radio (104.3, not 102.3, sorry Montrose!) that both Jeff Saturday and Dallas Clark are coming in for a visit. (No link, It's on right now, don't ban me Taco)

Clearly fake news. Ban this guy.








Saturday's an upgrade over Walton and Clark is an upgrade over open air. Cool with it especially since it's increases Peyton's comfort level.

Awesome. Indi-West. There is no way this could end badly.

Saturday would be good, but the key is Clark. He and Peyton are always in the same page. When his receivers went down, other smaller names have stepped up.
If healthy, Clark will once again be the key to this offense.

Clark is a great addition. He's got hands, but he's also a great blocker. That's going to be important, right out of the gates especially

Wow, I think I would be more excited about Saturday than even potentially signing a Reggie Wayne ( know he resigned with the Colts, I'm just saying I think getting Saturday would be bigger )

Not sure Saturday has much left- not sure Clark has much left, but both are a position of need....

Saturday is the perfect C to groom Walton.

eh...I don't think I want either of them to be honest. Saturday was awful last year and Clark can't stay healthy and blocks worse than a WR.

Per ProFootballFocus, JD Walton graded among the worst centers last season with Jeff Saturday clocking in at #5.

Saturday, mentally, is probably one of the top 3 centers in football.

Now, physically on the other hand, who knows?

I think this is a fair assessment- now if only you didn't need both components to excel.....

Having said this, possibly the physical ability of Saturday is overated in a Manning fast break offense....

I would still take Weigmann over Walton.

Sounds much more appealing than Browncos, though. No?

I think Saturday is the key to helping Manning run his offense, centers have to lead the whole Oline and understand the hurry-up scheme etc.

Oh, I agree with you. It's his age I'm concerned about. If he can play at a high level, he would be a huge upgrade, not to mention being a great mentor for JD.

This is the FA period we were waiting for. Saturday upgrades the inside, Walton is depth, Clark is the best TE we have had since Sharpe.

Everything's coming up roses.

But if the Broncos think Walton stinks, then keeping him isn't such great depth especially a guy who has only really played center.

If Saturday goes down Walton plays = great depth

I think more importantly it speeds the learning curve of the other Broncos. Peyton knows what he's doing, he doesn't need security blankets, but the vast majority of the Broncos don't know what they're doing and are going to have an extremely steep learning curve to get to where they understand what Manning is doing.
