I was wondering when and who they would cut.

I am shocked Casey was not more of a part of the offense than he was.

It is nice to have such a hybrid player in Virgil Green.

And yes, AWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I can't figure out why they don't line up Virgil Green more split out wide against a CB.

If you're going to make contested throws to DT then why not with Green as a 6'5 athletic TE like we did with JT.

his WR ability has been underrated his whole time in Denver (IMO), but maybe we all are just Overrating it?

That sounds right. He has good "measurables", so people assume he's a good receiver.

People here incorrectly assume that just because your combine numbers are good, doesnt necessarily make you a fluid athlete. I think he has the potential to be a better receiver than he has, but i dont think we're holding him back.

Well we could trot out 10 FB's. When we had Tebow Denver could run the 11 FB offense.

I'm not overrating it, I'm just underwhelmed by Fowler/Norwood/Caldwell split outside.

It's hard to say. It's not like he drops them. They just never throw to him. I guess he could be not getting open. I have a hard time seeing him get less separation than Daniels.

Maybe, but my best guess is he's not getting seperation. He sure plays enough. I doubt he's been ignored all this time when he's this amazing receiving talent

While likely true, I'm with them that whatever's inside Pandora's box can't be much worse and can at least throw a block

I'm not talking about seperation.

I just think if Manning is at a stage where he's throwing three/four jump balls a game to DT then why not do it with a 6'5 athletic TE split out wide that can out jump most CBs in the league.

True. But, i dunno, maybe he sucks at it. I just find it hard to believe it never occured to them is all, though i suppose its possible it hasn't.

Casey was/is apparently a really good special teams player on his previous teams. Does anybody know whether or not the Broncos even used him in that capacity?

I thought it would be McCray, but Casey hasn't really blended in.
