Default Gentlemen, I implore you to remain calm

Look, I know this wasn't what you had planned, but I'm asking you to have a little faith. My weekend didn't go so well either; I lost four million dollars playing darts. The point is that Moreno is a known quantity and Robert is going to make everyone forget Jarvis. Alphonso is like an uncut stone waiting to sparkle and the rest of the people we drafted are going to be really, really good. I promise.

Josh, Brian and I watched extensive gametape of every player and I feel confident that we picked up some great kids. Take into consideration that I was seeing double the whole time and that's four good eyes on the player.

Long story short I just need you all to remain calm and keep rooting for the Broncos. The wins will come.

I'm going to wait and see how the season and these picks go before I declare this draft a disaster or a success. But I guess that makes me a kool-aid drinker!

I only have 2 big problems with the draft. First was taking a RB so early. Sure it was a need .. but we have much bigger needs. And I absolutely hate that we wasted one of our #1's next year. I'm going to give the draft some time to pan out but I despise those two moves.

So that's why you dealt next years 1st rounder.

You need some serious help Pat.

I have little doubt that some of these assumed to be Broncos fans around here are really chief, raider, or charger fans getting the best of some of you with their BS.

Kaylore and crew I hope to see you guys at training camp in the near future. Maybe we'll see some desire on the field instead of bunch of dancing and farting around at shannyland.


*reaches over for nacho and beer* *burp*

Go Broncos....

I'm really not sure what everyone expected out of a weak draft class.

No idea what our offensive scheme is going to look like, no idea what the defense is going to look like so....

I.m on. Maybe there is a trade or two out there that will net a D player? Maybe Holliday as a stopgap?

I think the O is gonna be better, and the D is gonna improve from better coaching and a couple of new people.

On the Jay Quiter mouth-off by Mortenson, Kipper said that that remark was disqualified. I believe it should be, too. The incident is over, move on......

HAHA--major REP--I cannot wait to see, two years from now when this MCD nightmare is over, all of these people who are justifying MCD's failures in the name of 'change', come back and look at some of their comments --They should just remember--Broncofan7 told you so.

1) YOU DON'T TRADE FRANCHISE QB'S ENTERING THEIR 3RD FULL SEASON AS A STARTER!!

2) YOU DON'T TRADE NEXT YEAR'S PROBABLE TOP 10 1ST ROUND DRAFT CHOICE FOR A 2ND ROUNDER IN THE CURRENT YEAR!!!!!!

I AM SURE THAT HE WILL FIND SOME OTHER WAY TO ADD TO HIS SOON TO BE WORSE THAN RICH KOTITE-LIKE LEGACY........

I fully appreciate the right to an opinion but I have a question for a guy like you.

When you are watching Broncos football over the next couple years will you actually be rooting for McD and the Broncos to fail?

Better yet would you even bother coming to a Bronco game or do you just plan on waiting a few years until he might be gone.

Also what do you do if somewhere along the way the Broncos actually make the playoffs?

Just curious as I really just don't understand Broncos fans hoping to see individuals within the team to fail.

Oh and lastly how do you define failure? Does 1 playoff win in 10 years define success to you?

Failure has been defined by my edited post. I wanted Spagnuolo in here...... a DEFENSIVE COACH to fix what was ailing us. Too bad eminent domain cannot be applied to some people's Orangemane accounts......stay in step with the rest of the orange-lensed swine.......I was one of the few who knew it was time for Shanny to be gone--go see Taco's Epic failure thread from not a few days before Shanny was axed.......now I am one of the few who see the complete incompetence that was brought in here......but you go ahead--come week 6 of this upcoming season, you can declare me YOUR online OM leader. DOLT.
