Default You could only have 1 of these elite players. Elvis Dumervil or Brandon Marshall

Seems like the writing is starting to be on the wall with Marshall he is going to want to be the highest paid WR in the NFL this off season and expect it to be a very large task to sign him. Hes been productive this year kept his mouth shut and broke the NFL record for catches in a single game.

On the other hand we have Elvis Dumervil who made the pro bowl this year for the first time and is leading the league in sacks. Denver's never had a consistent pass rush until Doom was converted to a 3-4 OLB and now he is a terror to block, I never see him take plays off his motor keeps going and going. Hes going to want a big contract too but I think it would be reasonable.

When you have a pass rusher like that you don't let him go.
When you have a WR like that you don't let him go.

but Marshall has had so many question marks off the field and accountability issues start to come into question this season, if McDaniels is saying more players are playing through far worse that makes it sound like Marshall is just looking out for himself and worried about $$$ and thats what it seems to be with him......

I like them both hell I wanna keep them both.....

both you can only keep 1

Elite Pass Rusher or Elite Wide Receiver

I think its harder to find a good pass rusher than it is a good WR so I am picking Elvis Dumervil.

what does the mane think?

Doom, without question.

TO AN EXTENT, you can manufacture offense with scheme and good players. (See NE's pre-Moss offenses.)

You'll rarely if ever see a great defense without a great, natural pass-rusher.

Denver can't really do without either of these guys. Brandon Marshall is the only thing teams have to worry about on offense. Dumervil is the only guy on our team who can get to the QB.

I would say keeping Marshall is more important though. I think it would be easier to find 3-4 OLB than a 6'5'' 240 pound beast at WR.

I'll take Doom, not only because he's a pass rusher, but because he's the consumate professional and not 1 strike away from a long suspension.

When was the last time this team had an elite pass rusher?

Put that up against the times the team had an elite WR and you'll have your answer.

I wouldn't mind him or Benn both seem like smaller but faster and more athletic versions of Marshall.

Marshall. He can dominate games as we have seen. Doom is very good, but I dont believe he dominates games.
But Elvis is my 2nd favorite Bronco so I say keep them both!

So we should trade a young, top 5 receiver and draft another receiver who has proven nothing in the NFL?

Marshall wants a real QB that is going to give him a real opportunity to get paid. Stats = contracts.

Agreed, I'd rather have a bad football team if it meant we could avoid drama that didn't involve football.

At this point I don't know whether McDaniels or Marshall is the problem, but it doesn't really matter. You can't fire a coach over a player, even if it is his fault. So I think BM is done. It sucks, but he's just had way too much BS this year.

Uh... Marshall was just as productive as he was last year and made another Pro Bowl. He has already earned his money and will get his contract in the offseason..... Hopefully from Denver

As retarded as this sounds, given the seasons both are having, I don't think I'd classify either as "elite". Top 10 at their positions, yes. But I believe both of their production is the result of scheming in Elvis's case, and being bird-dogged in Marshall's case. I hope I used bird-dogged right. I've seen Elvis lose 1 on 1 battles with horrendous left tackles too many times.

That being said I choose Elvis. He's still a good player, and has no baggage. And a marquee pass rusher is more important than a marquee receiver every day of the week. Look no further than the Colts game.

Can the broncos sign either given the contract extension they'd be crazy not to give Hillis?

I think it is hard to give up a 100+ catch WR who is the only playmaker who has singlehandedly won a couple games this year leave at the prime of his career.

Doom can be schemed against and has disappeared in games. I like the guy but prefer having a great WR considering we no longer have a QB who can stretch the field.
