He's not a perfect player; in fact he's far from it. I'd love to have a shot at Reed or Woodson.

Old Dude would like you all to know he's never ever made a mistake.
Like a large, late-season bet for the Broncos to make it to the Superbowl?

I quarantee you this you will NEVER have to tell the kid to play back again in a situation like that.

But throwing him away is just dumb...............however that said we need to draft another safety.
Better to draft a top CB and move Champ to safety.

Champ got burned again in the Pro Bowl.

He had improved drastically up to that point and he was one of many players who pissed down their legs that day, along with our coach. I'm all for standing by the lad. Though we should be careful that his ****up hasnt messed with his head and causes him to regress.

Actually, I would get rid of Hillman, and I don't trust Moreno to stay healthy.

As for the others, they have track records of accomplishments.

Moore has been a hotdog since the day he got here. He wasted his time looking for killshots instead of learning the position and was rightly benched his rookie season in favor of guys who worked harder. He only got a starting job due to injuries and did nothing once he was there.

Yes, he improved his tackling in his second season. Big deal. When the chips are down, he's still a guy who will consistently overestimate his own abilities and ignore his role and assignment on the team in pursuit of the limelight. That's a hotdog and teams with hotdogs always pay dearly, sooner or later.

And if I pulled the equivalent of that kind of boneheaded move in any job I've ever been paid to perform, I'd fully expect to be fired as well.

You should try watching the games sometime, stupid.

I'm not the biggest rahim fan or anything but this is just stupid. Because he got one penalty for hitting a defenseless receiver, that means he was "looking for killshots instead of trying to learn the position?" seriously? You have no idea what his work ethic is. Headhunting and learning the position are unrelated. How do you know the guys that replaced him were harder workers?

I do agree that he was a terrible tackler and did nothing great in coverage. But to knock him for things you have no idea about is just stupid

why? he's the only RB on the roster with gamebreaker ability and he's only entering his 2nd season. It wouldn't make any sense to get rid of Hillman right now unless some crazy team threw Denver an offer it couldn't refuse

Moore is one of the best tacklers on the team. How do you people not see that?

I was referring to his rookie season. He was one of the top tacklers among safeties last year. But his rookie year was embarrassing

He used to suck, then he improved to slightly above average. I still think they can do better.

Three guys on the team, one was on IR last year.

For Elway to say they are fine there is hore****.

He even said UDFA Stevie Johnson will compete at MIKE with Nate Irving (special teams guys) to be a starter. Not to mention the FA we have there and the likelihood of Williams getting dumped.

Does Elway think we are stupid?

Everyone knows that DB/LB is a big need for this team. If they stick with what they got and don't improve there, they are a-holes of the highest level.

Watch them blow our first round pick on some turd who doesn't even contribute right away.
I think Elway seems to like to go for someone who can contribute right away with the first round pick. But only 2 yrs worth of picks to look at so who knows. I agree there is room for another safety to make the roster. I just feel it will probably be a free agent.

if you think back though Elway probably remember how Broncos used to be known for our linebackers and safetys. Maybe he will want to look for an absolute stud on the back end. Hell move up and grab Vaccaro I don't really care.

Like you mostly I just want players who make the team and contribute. That is how you get better. We still have enough holes IMO to look for better players at RB, OG, C, DT, DE, ILB, CB, S in the first 3 rounds of the draft.

Seriously the team isn't that good despite the 13-3 record.

Oh yeah, he was a major disappointment his rookie year. That makes his turnaround even more spectacular. He could make another huge improvement this offseason.

I really like Moore, he is fast and by looking at him you think he is kinda frail for a safety but he isn't. He isnot a big hitter but he brings them down.

I see Champ and Moore back there and Denver would have the fastest safeties in the NFL.

Moore's season was medicore by NFL standards. But he went from sort of crappy, to now being sort of an avg nfl player. Let's give him that 3rd yr and see if he can make it to above avg. Who knows though maybe he is shell shocked and will have trouble focusing on getting better. Hopefully though it just motivates him to make big plays and get a superbowl ring.

This team could win it all with just a few more good players and less mistakes. The main key will be less friggin mistakes.

He was one of the leading tacklers on one of the best defenses in the NFL. He also had one of the lowest missed tackle ratios. Go ahead and say it, he played well last year.

Due respect, but how do you hotdog it in the fry pit?
