I have been less critical of the front office than most, but this is ****ing bull**** if they bend over and trade him simply because he asked.

I gotta agree. If we were on the cusp of a championship I'd say make Marshall stay. But McD is clearly planning things for the long term and re-building the entire team from the ground up. If Marshall wants out, better to let him out now and get someone who wants to be here than keep him for two years and have him bail out when his contract finishes.

Anyone expecting a good season this year and next is kidding themselves. We are a team in re-build mode. If the malcontents don't want to be a part of the of the rebuilding process, get em outta here. Hopefully with some kind of compensation to help the reconstruction of the team.

IMO, I don't think anybody is going to give us what we want (a first and a third-even Baltimore), so maybe this is a ploy? And, I agree with Traveler-

they shouldnt trade him, we wouldnt get fair value

we need to make sure his hip is fine, so hold off until he shows up to camp(he will eventually)

I dont have a problem with giving him a nice contract before the season starts if he checks out, risky, but he is a special player.

But trading him would not be a good idea, unlike Cutler, we wouldnt get fair value

If he wants out, then I don't see the point of keeping this guy around. Professional types, sure, they would go out and play hard. But Marshall has yet to show he has that kind of maturity and his trade value would probably get worse the longer he sticks and probably mopes.

I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not, but the way I see it we have two years of suck coming our way no matter what happens.

Bowlen seems to be committed to letting McD take over and re-mold the whole team his way, and I think he's doing the right thing. If you're going to roll the dice on a new guy, then at least go all in and give him room to put his full system into place. But the team's going to suck for awhile as everyone learns the system and McD flushes out the players who don't fit his philosophy and brings in new ones that do.

Since it's going to take a couple years to build a team anyway, there's no reason right now to hold onto someone who doesn't want to be in Denver.

Players do this **** all the time. Look at Boldin. The guy has requested a trade a billion times, nothing has happened.

Boldin doesn't have the off the field issues like Brandon. Thus, making him more valuable to the Cards.

Not that I endorse trading Marshall, I don't, but for those questioning the FO and staff for bending over and trading a player at his request - Shanahan had a policy that any player who wanted to be traded could be if they went out and found adequate compensation for the team. He said so himself after the Portis/Bailey trade. Just an FYI.

AZ has never said they would be willing to accomodate him. In fact, they've openly had the opposite stance. Big difference there.

How come you aren't asking the question 'why don't they want to be here'?

The Denver Broncos were a proud franchise with history and great fans. And in a matter of months they are a laughinstock with players jumping ship.

It is a vast oversimplification to say 'move the players that don't want to be here'. There is a reason they want to leave.

What are you talking about? They have a young 1000 yard receiver in Breaston, he's like 5 years younger and he makes less in 16 games than Boldin does PER game. And oh yeah they still have that Fitzgerald guy. They don't need Boldin that bad. It's just that they feel like players should not run the organization. Its different with us though. As soon as somebody asks for a trade we give a call to everybody and see if we can work out a trade.

I always wanted to know what rebuilding mode felt like since we really never had one under the Shanahan regime. I must say, it ****ing sucks!
