Adopt-a-Bronco:
Tim Tebow
Default KOA & Adam Schefter reporting that Marshall asked to be traded

Pat Bowlen apparently asked Marshall to reconsider, and apparently dangled a new contract in front of him. Rather then accept Marshall's request, he asked the receiver to think about it a while.

The fact that Marshall took boxes out when he left is a bad bad sign.

Look, I have been as much a critic of Marshall as anyone the last few years, but I also believe that he has been turning things around.

Is there anyone who still thinks that Josh as GM, or Pat as GM is not a unqualified disaster at this point?

The front office needs to hold the line here. I would fine him until he comes in and not move him. Letting Cutler go helped create the feeling that the FO is soft and if you whine and moan you can force the issue. They need to make an example of Marshall here.

OMG! What else can go wrong? Maybe Elway will denounce that he ever played for the Broncos and that he always wanted to be a raider.

Per Adam, yes.

The Broncos apparently are fine giving him a new contract, even with his history, but it sounds like Cutler leaving plus the medical issues are having repercussions.

Brandon wants (and could be) the top receiver in the league. That's extremely unlikely unless he has a quarterback to throw to him. Right now that's a iffy proposition.

They should have done that with Cutler in the first place.

That's how they got into this ****ing mess in the first place. That and firing all the grownups (The Goodmans) who had ever done GM duties before.

The QB thing is BS. Its not like I'm the starting QB of the broncos and he's playing in a very very pass freindly offense. Not to mention, Brandon has established himself in the denver community. Not sure what's goin on here exactly, but its more than meets the eye.

That remains to be seen but I won't deny this fallout is a direct result of Bowlen losing his patience with Marshall. Had we kept Cutler there would have repercussions the other way. We would have had to deal with him pissing and moaning and missing camp. We would have gone into camp with no alternative.

Seconded. Giving in to him would be the worst possible move they could make. I'm disappointed to even hear they caved and offered him a contract.

Man so let me get this straight... We lose a hall of fame two time winning head coach..... Grab a young coach with a Napoleon complex.... Trade away our 25 yr old pro bowl QB.... Trade away a very likely top 10 draft pick for a nickelback..... Have our pro bowl and captain of the o-line center threaten to retire..... and now our 25 yr old pro bowl WR asked to be traded... MAN WE ARE SO SCREWED!!!!

We did trade away one of the best long snappers so we could sign his equal to a bigger contract..............so that is something

I agree ... this is starting to sound like Cutler all over again.

Somebody tell me why our best player is suddenly angry and walking out the door?! I didn't see anything leading up to this, in fact when he was cleared last week I thought everything was cool.

I'm thinking this has gotta be Josh again ... and the pattern might be that Josh is a pr!ck to star players. He's a coach's son, a small college guy, that's the profile for a star-hater ... and we saw his dismissive words toward Weigmann.


It's definitely not the Cutler thing, too much time has passsed ... and if Pat offered a deal and B-Marsh said no ... it's gotta be a Josh thing,

Radio?

I would like to see a link confirming this. Schefter is with ESPN now, and with Basketball and Hockey done for the year, I would think something would be online about this.
