Default Congratulations, you are now the Head Coach of the Denver Broncos!

Pat Bowlen would like to welcome you to the great organization of the Denver Broncos. You are taking over a 8-8/9-7 team with some major flaws. Bowlen wants to win ‘NOW’ and you are in charge of doing so. He has given you all the tools to go out and get the quality players (within reason) we need.

Some of my moves?

Resign
Brandon Marshall
Elvis Dumervil
Chris Kuper
Kyle Orton (2 year deal, will battle with drafted QB)

Free Agency
Logan Mankins – Left Guard

Draft
Quarterback – I want a QB with a strong arm that can go deep. Jimmy Clausen? Can he lead though? Sam Bradford may be an option too.

Center – I would wait to draft a center. Round 3 is where I would take one, if available.

NT - If we can't get Wilfork, we certainly have to find draft one. Chris Baker is a huge body, but an undrafted FA with "OM hype".

Punter - Bye Burger.

Pipe Dream
Vince Wilfork – Huge body for our defensive line, would improve our defense.
Kirk Morrison – Replaces Andra Davis.

Logan Mankins would be a dream. I'd trade Marshall, to be honest. I draft a QB in the 2nd day. Sign a WR to replace Marshall(Malcolm Floyd?). Draft an Interior Linebacker and a Safety in rounds 1 and 2. Trade Hillis. Cut Graham. Trade Scheffler. Sign Watson(If he's not an FA, don't trade Scheffler).

This team does not nead overhaul, it needs seasoning.

I'd rather go after the Pouncey twins to solve the interior problems than pay big FA money for Mankins.

Maybe we could get a good guard out of Marshall.

Congratulations - 100% of us would not even win a single game in the NFL as the new coach of the Broncos. We wouldn't get any respect from the other coaches or players since we don't really know jack about how to run a team. We like to talk our forum talk like we do, but none of us know the inside workings of how to run an NFL team, probably not even a college team and 99.9% of us not even a HS team.

What has this place come to? Now we expect 1st year HC's to make the playoffs? So, does that mean by year 2 we expect our new HC to win the Superbowl or do we ship him out after he loses the AFC Championship game in only his 2nd year at the job? And obviously after he wins the Superbowl in only his 2nd year, if he fails to repeat, surely we must cut him lose, since he's shown he can't win on a consistent basis.

Resign
Elvis Dumervil
Chris Kuper
Kyle Orton

Would consider BM after some negotiationsssss

Free Agency
Max Jean Gilles, OG (depth)
Jarvis Green, DL (depth)
Chris Spencer, C (project)

Draft
Quarterback – Jarrett Brown/Sean Canfield. Wouldn't be adverse to upper QB prospect if the situation presented itself.

Interior Line depth (both sides) - Top priority here. Bigger, stronger, younger.

RB - mid/late rounds. Montario Hardesty, Ben Tate, Charles Scott.

LB - Brandon Spikes does look appealing. Big 'n nasty.

Perfect offseason... except change safety to CB. Preferrably Haden in the 1st and best guard avail. in the 2nd.

Trade Orton back to Chicago for Cutler and their first round pick for next year.

Ever heard of a period? You know, those those things that come at the end of a sentence.

I'm not giving up on Hillis. If he gets traded, then I will make a new one. Plus, I put alot of work into this one. That was not an easy avatar to make.

Cut Moss, Trade Hillis but probably cut him since he probably wouldn't bring a pick, by Hamilton, Wiegman. That is a rough start.

Hey, Debbie Downer, go plague another thread!

This is NOT about firing Josh McDaniels, this is simply a thread to see what people think our weaknesses are and what options are available.
