Default Go Fish: Broncos' Boy Blunder

http://sports.espn.go.com/espnmag/reillygofish
"How arrogant can Josh McDaniels be?"

The Denver Broncos' 33-year-old Boy Blunder boasted this week that his draft board had fewer than 100 names on it, which made it easy for him to make his picks. Less than a hundred names when 256 players were drafted? Most boards had 500-plus names on them! Furthermore, he said the Broncos had worked out nearly 30 players and all 10 of his choices were among those 30. In other words, "I'm not capable of making a mistake. If I didn't work the guy out, the guy wasn't good enough. Period." This is the same genius who traded one of Denver's first-round choices in 2010 to move up in the second round to take a 5'9'' defensive back—Alphonso Smith. To repeat: Boy Blunder used a first to take a second. And if the Broncos are going to be as lame as I think they're going to be—4-12 perhaps—that first-round pick will be very high. McDaniels is the worst combination of things: Terribly naïve and doubly confident. Bronco fans, you're screwed.

Wait until he gets rid of BMarsh, BMarsh... it's inevitable.

All of them wide receivers no doubt.

I for one, am sick of our franchise being the laughing stock of the NFL. It does not surprise me that our drafting board was thing. What did they think would happen when you fired the Goodman's?

Every time I see a new McDaniels piece from any jackass, the Benny Hill theme song goes off in my head.

McD crossed his boy Cutler. Reilly got buddy buddy with Jay writing the article about his diabetes a while back (pretty decent article too), and now he's sticking with his guy by hating all things McDaniels.

Reilly, love him or hate him, isn't a hard hitting, in-depth sports reporter with any special insight on any sport. He becomes friends with athletes and writes heart-warming stories about them. It's interesting enough, but it certainly colors his "analysis" down the road.

all true, all sad. Listen to popps tho, he knows that we need to build through the line. I mean, build through the defensive backfield. I forget, which is it this week?

Most teams have between 100 and 200 players on their boards. Many players get taken off boards for medical or character issues or because they don't fit the team system.

Another blatant distortion. The Broncos primary board had fewer than 100 names on it with round values placed on each player. They had a "back board" to go to if there were not players on their board that met the value of the pick. Reilly can't accept that his man crush John Elway has retired.

exactly, if you combine his boards it was the same as everyone else. in fact, i imagine every team does it the same. have a first board and second board, only resorting to the back board if their first board is empty.

Poor little pooch. Still following me around after the last time your nosed was shoved in your own poop?

We've been through this, and our staff IS addressing the front seven. You and a few very obtuse others are just choosing to ignore it, hoping it'll give you some kind of leg to stand on.

Honestly, your posts are just sad, dude. It's tough to watch. Maybe take a break for a while.

Just sounds to me like a lot of the spineless, short-sighted posters on this board. Nothing I haven't heard from plenty of other goofs.

Oh, the future is going to be fun.

There's going to be a lot of back-referencing, here and elsewhere.

Ha ha..."Boy Blunder"...McBlunder...hadn't thought of that one.

I don't claim to be a mathematician but I'll take a crude stab at this.

100 names? Assuming other NFL teams had these guys on their list as well and knowing 31 other teams are picking 7 rounds plus compensatory picks that's roughly 230 potential opportunities for these ten guys to go elsewhere...a 1 in 23 chance we get any one of these specific guys...so since he had 100 names in there...roughly 1 in 2.3 chances Denver would draft any single player on that list, or 43%. Drop that down to the 30 he worked out and now it's 7.6% for each of those 20. Yet we got all 10 on our A list? We beat 93% odds against us 10 straight times? Granted we moved up for two players...so that's 8 straight times.

Ok.
