Default Kiszla: Cut Hanie

http://www.denverpost.com/lunchspeci...e-hit-pavement

I was partial to keeping him around for his experience, and he is certainly the 2nd best QB on the roster, but is he good enough to win us any games if Peyton goes down?

Here's a good quote from the article:

Quote:
If honest, even Broncomaniacs who hold a grudge against former coach Josh McDaniels would have to admit: Running back Knowshon Moreno is a better football player than Hanie. At age 36, linebacker Keith Brooking is a health risk. But with five appearances in the Pro Bowl, his resume trumps anything Hanie has done in the NFL.

1:05pm ET - FWIW, Mark Kiszla can't see Denver keeping Caleb Hanie over Knowshon Moreno, Keith Brooking, or Malik Jackson. What Brooking's Pro Bowl selections - the last of which came after the 2005 season - have anything to do with this theoretical dilemma is beyond us.

I'm leaning toward cutting Hanie and just going with Twilight. This will give Twilla all the remaining snaps in practice and he can follow Manning around like a kitten follows a leaky cow. If Manning goes down and the Broncos absolutely don't want to play Twilla then they can always pick up a journeyman QB like Hanie or whoever. It's not like Hanie is gonna be on another team.

I agree with this. If Manning goes down, the season is over. Hanie couldn't save the Bears, and I don't think he would do any better here.

If you are going to spend a second round pick on a developmental QB you may as well chuck him in the fire.

It is not over if Manning goes down for a half or two games or whatever. Denver needs to find a back up that can win a couple of games in a pinch.

Many of the cut QBs could be a better choice than Hannie. Brock could be the primary backup until the new QB picks up the basics of the offense.

Weber is head and shoulders better than Hanie, I can't see any reason not to cut Hanie

To me it isnt that Hanie so terrible that I would cut him (he is), rather too much depth at other positions i would rather keep.

Taking this much of my piece without my permission and posting it verbatim is NOT acceptable behavior and borders on plagiarism.

My concern with cutting Hanie is this. If Peyton goes out for a couple of games and Osweiler fills in it will be fine, and maybe even good for the kid. If on the other hand Peyton is knocked out for the season, the whole season goes down the tubes, and Osweiler is thrown in there to take the heat for it, it could seriously impede his development. I'd much prefer see Hanie take that hit and let Osweiler have a full season to develop without playing.

Weber has played better than Hanie, but keeping Hanie protects Brock from mhaving to be thrown to the wolves if the unthinkable happens. If Hanie's cut, the only way to keep Brock from getting tossed into the fire would be to send in Weber. But that would knock Brock's confidence more than if he was thrown in and failed, IMHO. Why not cut Weber?

Should replace Hannie with Rosenfels or McNown (cut by Bears), if they want a decent vet QB at #2 instead of Brock.

Elway cited Hanie's "experience" as a reason to keep him...what, his experience at sucking? What is wrong with a capable backup?
