Another deep threat apart from Thomas would be extremely useful, and I'd like to see another WR on the roster that I think could start. Neither Caldwell nor Willis look good enough, and Stokely is a pure slot guy.

I know the WR crop in free agency is pretty good this year, maybe we can get someone for a reasonable price? I don't expect any of the big names like Jennings, Bowe, Wallace and Welker to be in play for us, but someone from the second tier would be a nice addition.
Yeah they need another outside WR and a slot. I imagine one of them in FA and one through the draft.

He will be back to all pro studlyness next year. I sure hope he is healthy enough to contribute in the playoffs this year.

I would love to see us get a bye just to give Kuper and McGahee another week to heal up.

Yeah, he was a scratch because they thought they could still win this game without him and with the 10 days off, if they held kuper out, that's 17 days off for him. Easy way to get a guy 2 weeks rest to help him heal up. They want him healthy for the Ravens.

Manny has been a great backup, but the Raiders wasn't his outing.

Also, I'd put Kuper as our 3rd best lineman behind Clady and Franklin. That's not really a bad thing since I think the case can be made for the Broncos having the best oline in the NFL.

But yeah, he is a vast improvement over Manny.

Clady maybe but not based on his last few games. And Franklin? Based on what?

Doesn't help Denver that Kuper is not on the field.
I could easily see Denver first round pick being a young stud guard would have been DeCastro last year. If Kupe can play great but this is the NFL so it's a meat business for players and may the best guy play

Was thiking much the same thing.

While the oline has looked good, most of the year the past few games not so much.

Just what I want in an oline guy. Always in the training room trying to heal.

Even when he was in his run blocking was marginal. When Franklin showed up the running game got better.
