I agree on the extension part. My issue is with those calling for the guys head. I'm not saying give the guy an extension, but give him the rest of his contract. We dealt with Shanahan being average and living off a reputation for a decade and 2 seasons of pure ****, we can deal with another double digit wins season with a team that can contend.

Free agent Golden Tate told Sports Radio 950 KJR in Seattle that he's "very willing" to take a hometown discount with the Seahawks.
"I probably shouldn’t even say this right now but I’m going to say it anyway just because I love Seattle, honestly," said Tate. "I would rather take a little less to be happy and win ballgames than to take way more and go to a crappy city where the fans don’t give a crap about the team." Tate would need to take a hometown discount for the Seahawks to afford him. Just how much of a discount he's willing to take will determine whether he stays put.

Now that is something you'd like to see Decker come out and say.

I remember Decker before the KC game. He liked waving at officials more than reaching for a catch.

Talk is cheap, let's see what Tate actually does before we praise him. Plus with such short career and potential for major damage one's body any player would be stupid not to max out his earning potential.

I would be fine with letting Decker go and resigning Caldwell to a cheaper contract than Decker is all but guaranteed at this point. Caldwell played well in the limited time he got and he has elite speed, unlike Decker.

If I'm Eric Decker, i want my agent to get me as much money as possible and a job with the Colts. Be long term greedy.

I do have a hunch he remains a Bronco. Seems to be an abundance of WR talent out there and i don't see anyone overpaying for him. Moreno might be the one who gets overpaid for. (relatively overpaid)

A finesse receiver that runs like a possession receiver with the physicality of a worn out turtleneck sweater. Pay that man.

Welker caught 6 of 8 , DT 13 of 18.

Which one didn't show up?
As you say he is a 700 yd receiver without PM, and he will trip over the 30 yard line at least once a season.

Down 15-0, the O finally started moving the ball.

Then the Beadles legsweep. Then the WTF Tamme screen.

KM had a solid run to get us back into FG range and a more-makeable 3rd and long when Manning completely **** the bed with the pick-6.

What should've been 15-3 at worst was now 22-0.

Next drive we drive to within field goal range, but because 22-0 is so much more desperate than 15-3, we go for 4th and 3.

Should've been 15-6 at half, even though we played like complete ****. Prater probably kicks the ball out of the EZ like normal to start the 2nd half. Completely different game.

But as to the thread topic, Decker had one target in the 1st half for 0 yards. Disappointing. But he tended to be streaky all year. Then again I'm under no illusion that we'll find someone better in FA.

Love to have him back cheap. But not if it costs us any of the upgrades we desperately need at OL, LB or FS, oh and CB.

Decker had over 600 yds and 8 TDs in 2011......with Tebow "throwing" him the freaking ball, and yet he's no more than a 700 yd receiver with ANY OTHER QB in the league throwing him the ball? Please.

He's clearly not a 1500 yd receiver with any old guy throwing him the ball, but there are plenty of guys in the NFL who can get more than 100 yds more out of him than Tim Tebow did. Let's pump the brakes a little on that argument.

For a guy like Decker, the QB is less important that the receiving weapons around him. It's pretty clear that he can produce well on a team with a top 10 #1 WR taking away the opponent's best DB. He's no #1, but he's one of the better #2s in the league.

Denver needs to invest their long-term money at WR in Demaryius Thomas and at TE with Julius Thomas. Bring back Caldwell as a guy who knows the system and can produce if Decker leaves. We still have Welker next year. Getting a WR that is cheaper or through the draft (Jordan Matthews) would allow us better cap options for the pinnacle players on our team and give us flexibility for the future.

Different argument. I'm not arguing for bringing Decker back or not.

All I'm doing is pointing out how ridiculous it is for some here to say that Decker is no more than a 700 yd receiver with any other QB in the league, when he literally did that with the worst passing QB in the history of the league.

Offer Decker a 4mil/year contract and see if he takes it.
I think our group of receivers are great, they complement each other well...
We need some freakin' players in the secondary like nobody's business, we need some pass rusher and speed at the first and second level of our defense...

Yeah, you can just pull in 1,300 yards off the street.

Is there a #2 in the league that had that many?

Lolz. I'm not the person you want to be telling how great our OL is right now. And Clady was already a question mark for me at the salary he's commanding. Not that I think there's much they can do at this point.

Heh.

2014 Broncos Championship Action Plan

1. Boot Eric Decker
2.
3. Hoist Lombardi

And I never said we should keep Deck at any cost. Just noting the reality that any realistic substitutes will likely downgrade the talent and production of the position. Whether commensurate improvement can be made in other areas to make up for that loss is an open question.

Anyway, you do realize we're just fans, right? "Would of could of and should of" is kinda the name of our game.

You are assuming that Clady will come back at the level he was before the injury. That's not a safe bet. On top of that even with Clady I am not sure the O-line would have been a good match for the speed and explosiveness of the Seahawks' line and linebackers. Whether it's natural talent, great coaching, or PED's, those dudes can MOVE. The Bronco's O-line is going to need an upgrade to contend with that. Manning was so rattled that he completely messed up his reads and missed guys who were open. The status quo is not going to get you where you want to be.

Start naming a lesser paid free agent wide receiver that can do what Decker did this season? We have 3 damn good wide receivers and throw in Thomas at TE gave us a deadly unit.

I am not saying he deserves #1 money but don't throw him under the bus like it is so easy. If we don't have him on our team next season, there will be a drop at that spot unless we pay and get a #1 wide receiver to take his place.

They were pretty shabby on Sunday, with the exception of DT.

If Decker wants to get paid, he will. If he gives Denver a Home town discount then he will probably stay. But his self marketing is indicative that he is going to be all about the money, in which case he will probably not be in Denver next year. Sucks , but that is the situation.
