Default Lowry takes over for McCree

Oct. 15 - 8:55 pm et


Calvin Lowry has replaced Marlon McCree as the Broncos' first-team free safety.

The Broncos' problems at safety have carried over from last season despite McCree and SS Marquand Manuel's additions. McCree had only 25 tackles in the first six weeks, and Denver's FS position isn't a hot spot for stats.

About time.............I'm tired of seeing McCree go for the big hit and then not wrap up!!

Finally! You know, McCree might not deserve to be replaced as much as Manuel did, or even some others.. but he's a veteran and knocking him down a notch and replacing him might send a message to the rest of the slackers.

Glad to see McCree out, but Lowry has been no great shakes in his time on the field.

Well...at least they recognize that they have a problem, and that's the first step

Look at it this way, I rather have a pair of young safeties that make mistakes than a couple of vets that make mistakes.

I wish we would bring up Barrett and let him start.

I agree 100%. Interesting to me is that McCree got the demotion before Manual. Yeah, McCree has stunk it up...but he hasn't been as bad as Manual in my book! That guy is pop warner league!

Our safeties this year are like our dline last year.

We signed guys who no one else wanted; Sam Adams and "Hot 97", and as a result our line was complete trash.

Now we are just bringing in more retreads; McCree, Manuel, and Lowry

At least Lowry has age going for him

We did seem to somewhat fix our DT spot though, now if only we could fix our DEs and Ss this offseason

I said when we signed these scrubs it was a joke and it has proven true. Neither Manual or or McCree are starting caliber safety's. For the last 3 yrs we have all been saying to draft some young safety's but I guess Shanny likes scrubs or old FA at that position.

I don't get it because Broncos history is to have great safety's.

Dennis Smith= 15th pick in the first round
Steve Atwater=20th pick in the first round
Mike Harden== 5th round pick
Billy Thompson=3rd round pick

We have a great history at safety because the team valued the position and drafted to make it good. You can't neglect picking safety's in the draft and expect to continue such a tradition.

To put it simply, it just evolved quickly into him not being needed.

- The broncos go out and sign to vets (McCree & Manual)...so that they have veteran depth.
- Then Abdullah gets hurt
- Then Lynch asks to be released
- Then McCree & Manual lock up the starting slots in camp and throughout the preseason.
- Then the Broncos sign both Barrett and Rogers to the practice squad and pick up Lowry off waivers.
- Evidently, they didn't think they needed Abdullah...with the depth they had

Personally, I wish we would have went with Rogers and Barrett from the get go. Both are young atheletic kids who can make plays.

By the Titans, who are pretty well set at safety and didn't need him.
