Default What your biggest fear about the upcoming off season

Just wondering what has you worried about the upcoming off season.

Mine is that McDaniels and Xanders will overpay for Orton, because some other team is interested in him.

Not getting fair value out of our possible departures and mortgaging good value in a tremendously deep draft.

I'm worried that McD's running O is going to kill this team. I hope that he just needs to finish getting the parts in place to run his system effectively, but I don't like the way NE ran the ball and I'm worried that McD was responsible for the way they did it. The Pats' pass O was, at times, phenomenal. And Orton looked, at times, Brady-esque. But I don't want our team to have to depend on that. I want to be able to run the ****ing ball.

That he may sign Orton to a long term deal
That he may still want to go with Moreno as his primary ball carrier
That he keeps destroying and dismantling my team
That he may screw up the draft
That he may bring more FA over-the-hill players to replace our young talent
That he still thinks he's Belicheck
That he still thinks he's the second coming of his HS coach father

Nothing. I love the Broncos and there's no point freaking the **** out about something you have no control over.

...but I will literally set myself on fire if we draft Jimmy Clausen.

Not getting 3 starters, two of whom are probowlers (and not orton to the 2010 probowler types) out of last year's and this year's top 4 picks.

I don't care about overpaying Orton. They're talking about something around 7 million a year less than they were looking at having to pay Culter. I don't care about Bowlen's money since he's already making out like a bandit on that trade. I don't think Orton is a championship quality qb, but he might improve or I might even be wrong.

I feel like our franchise is on "Final Destination" and death is hunting us down.

All I have is fear moving forward with our franchise.

The inconsistency. It kills me (no matter the logical-ness of the reasons) that we are on our fifth d-coordinator in 5 years.

We need to decide what Denver Broncos football is, and get to business.

losing good players and drafting OK players. Watching Orton throw 20 screens per game ...... watching Orton ..... period.

starting strong and ending up 8 - 8 again and watching the chargers go to the playoffs above us and choking again.

It wasn't as bad as Saban giving up two no. 1's to San Diego for Tensi.

I understand what I think was the main reasoning behind the deal, Bowlen not wanting to pay 2 1st round picks, and I am past it.

But, at the same time, it's still going to suck.

I hear ya'

drafts are all about hindsight anyhow, and honestly we will have a shot at anyone Seattle chooses...so really we would have no excuse

Because Smith got bumped on the depth chart by an UDFA and a retired player AND the fact that our pick landed in the top #15 of a very deep draft... Trust me if Seattle picks a stud at #14 we could hear about it for a long time.

As for my worries...

-What are they going to do at QB?
-What happens to Marshall?
-Who replaces Nolan?

back on topic my biggest fear is not maximizing the draft

I am ok with just about anything as long as it makes the team better...we absolutely need to nail day 1 though IMO
