Definitely. The Shanahan firing alone made it one of the worst offseasons that I can remember.

Quite possibly the worst offseason in the NFL ever. Redskins fans are laughing about our front office, that should tell you something. If Cutler goes in a bad trade, it will be the final nail in the coffin for me. I will still watch Broncos games and cheer for them, but I won't follow any more offseason ****, and I won't be buying any more Broncos gear. Vote with the wallet, and let Bowlen know how FUBAR this situation has become.

No. This doesn't approach the deaths of DW and DN.

It reminds me of the Halcyon days of Dan Reeves when he picked Tommy Maddox over Carl Pickens in 1992.......

cutler is still here so i wouldnt call it the worst yet. we made some solid signings....better than niko/mcree/manuel/colbert anyway...lol

my worst was the 2006-2007 off-season not only did we lose to san francisco in a easy game we should have won to go to the playoffs but then, Dwill and nash both died in the same offseason, not to mention all the crap that happened with marshall, as well as the hiring of slowik....that was pretty bad in my book.

I loved shanny and always had his back but even i am can see his time was due. even after seeing what MCD has done so far...

Thank you.

Let's not start comparing a spoiled QB getting upset and changing coaches to our players dying. The 70% who voted worst offseason should be ashamed of themselves.

Cmon people the moves haven't been that bad. Don't let Cutlers antics ruin the whole deal for the Broncos this offseason. Honestly worrying about trading Scheffler or Hillis is a joke. Neither of those players is a big deal to me.

Mcdaniels deserves a chance to ake the team how he wants it. He knows more about football then all of us combined so let's give him a fair shake before we throw him out of the boat.

Goodmans, Shanahan, Cutler, Marshall, in order of importance. More to come possibly. No truely great signings thus far, maybe Dawkins counters Hillis. Draft has yet to come, maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel, but it feels like a train doing 75 to me. From a widder viewpoint, of course the deaths of players is more important, and a cause for true grief. From the standpoint of impact to the franchise and the product on the field next year it isn't even close. Unless McDaniels became a deffensive genius overnight, or the Broncos win the staredown and defuse the Cutler situation this offseason has been more detrimental than any I can remember. The proof of course lies in the W-L column next year, and I sincerely hope I am wrong.

Best offseason ever.

Shanny is gone.

Slowick is gone.

Most of the **** players on defense are gone.

Cutler's finally showing he's a spoiled whiner and may be gone.

Good riddance.

Yeah, best offseason ever.

Your question is specific and premature.

The Cutler drama is far from over, the draft is next month, FA signings will continue....as will trades......and training camp hasn't started.

A better question would have been:

Is this the worst start to an offseason you can remember?

And even then, it pales in comparison to the death's of DW and DN

I doubt there could ever be an offseason worse than when Darrent and Damien passed away.
