Default PFW : AFC West offseason team reports

Denver Broncos

Mission accomplished: If Josh McDaniels’ goal was to remodel the Broncos drastically in short order, he certainly has done that. Denver has a new starting quarterback, new faces throughout its defense and a new franchise running back, in all likelihood. The Broncos started the offseason by signing a slew of players within the first few weeks of free agency, adding three veteran running backs and a defensive leader in S Brian Dawkins. McDaniels encountered his first crisis as a head coach, one some would argue was of his own making, when communication broke down between the team and Jay Cutler after about a month of feuding between Cutler and McDaniels. The first-time head coach settled the feud by trading Cutler to the Bears for Kyle Orton and three draft picks, including first-rounders this year and next. McDaniels found that franchise back in Knowshon Moreno with his first pick in the draft and a defensive building block in DE-OLB Robert Ayers with the first-round pick he acquired from Chicago.


Unfinished business: One of the more pressing concerns still lingering in Denver is whether or not WR Brandon Marshall, a repeat violator of the league’s personal-conduct policy, will receive a suspension. It appeared that he was headed for a lengthy suspension after he was arrested for disorderly conduct in March, but the charge against him was dismissed and there has been no word from the league on any official punishment. It’s conceivable that he won’t face any time off. The Broncos have yet to name a starting quarterback, allowing Orton and Chris Simms to battle for the job, although Orton is considered the front-runner. There are also several personnel issues that must be sorted out on defense as Denver moves to a 3-4 scheme.



For the rest of the West.....http://www.profootballweekly.com/PFW...offafcwest.htm

Wade is a guy who needs to remain nothing more than a DC. same as Nolan. both are really great defensive minds, but they just are not meant to be HC

It is a bit homeresque to not think that Garcia can be helpful to the Faider O. He can. But I think the Fat Boy will be much better this year, and can become a pretty fair threat as a QB. Taking off the homer glasses, the Faiders should be improved enough to be a threat to SD, KFC, and Denver. What they will actually do will be seen. I just hope they beat the mullets and the sparkies.....

with that in mind i just hope that McDaniels realizes just how important these games against Oakland are in th eyes of the fans. even since Oakland has sucked for the better part of a decade now, we fans still get incredibly amped up for Raider week, and i just hope he realizes that that is going to be a pair of games that he needs to really have his A game and have the team ready to go.

Anyone that wishes for another team to win, when it will directly contribute to hurting our ability to improve should have their fandom called into question.

Myopic view towards a guy that has gone out of his way to burn and mail DVDs of classic bronco games to the bronco fan community for free.

On the same level of people attacking you for camp reports (yes, I'm semi guilty... I get the hypocrisy).

I guess I'm a little hurt that Atlas would say something like that. He's on par with Meck and other Super Fans IMO. That he would hope that Bears go to the super bowl is like hoping the Broncos picks bust to me. I find it horrifying. I think when you're a fan you want the team to do well and that includes circumstances that can help the team improve. Wishing for those circumstances to worsen thus causing the team to have fewer resources to improve is horrible.
