Default Should the Broncos Have Paid the $47 Million ($24 Mil Upfront) and Kept Marshall?

Don't want to start another "hate" thread. Just want to see the results of an up/down vote.

If a frugal GM like Bill Parcels was willing to offer Marshall 47 million why wouldn't the Broncos GM-Bowlen and McD have the same trust and confidence to do the same?

I doesn't really matter now. Both the Broncos and the Dolphins took risk now lets see how it all pans out.

I do think Denver may have over played the "Off the field Card" a little too much,, especially if Brandon plays in Miami w/o any off the field problems and continues to perform at an all pro level. Then of course it becomes a glaring bungle and bad decision should the Bronocs passing/WR attack stumbles and stink up the joint. Point is Gaffney and Royal may need to catch 70 to 80 passes each to ensure Denver has a vaiable WR corp./tandem for the 2010 season.

Haven't you noticed that all of the vultures are making their return today?

Don't worry though when we are winning they will be gone again.

Yup. He performs on the field, we're in a good situation with the salary cap and it's not my money.

Because Bill Parcels is a "short-timer" and has been at every organization he's been with since leaving the Giants.

Our passing game will be fine this year because our running game should be significantly better. Gaffney and Royal are certainly capable of achieving those numbers with a legitimate running game.

For those that have rasta on iggy...Sorry for the quote.....

That is not the point at all rasta....

Denver's top 3 WR's (BM/Gaff/Royal) had: 192 catches, 2,200 yards & 12 TD's in 2009....Roughly good for the 13th ranked receiving team in 2009.


If you are conceding that the above is a 'viable' WR Corps. Than they (Gaff/Royal/??) merely need to achieve similar numbers.

The problem with most of you dopes though is even if/when that happens....


You guys will be screaming, "But how much better could they have been WITH Marshall"

And then us sane guys will point to the 2009 numbers and say..."They already showed you that in 2009"

And then you will cry that it's McD's dink & dunk approach & Orton's overall suckiness that leads you to wonder....Just imagine if we had Shanny's offense with Cutler's gun and The Beast & an up & comer like Royal & an awesome TE like Scheff & Hillis the great white hope...WHERE WOULD WE BE THEN?"

And the saner among us will simply point to 2008 and answer "8-8"

And then the same people will pose the same argument..."It was the defenses fault!"

Rinse/Repeat.

Way too much money for a player on the edge of multiple game suspensions. Thank you Miami and Mr. Bowlen!

Wow, almost 80% no. This place is smarter than I thought. It's amazing how the vocal minority makes it feel like the vote should be a lot closer.

So are you saying the Broncos won't miss Marshall much and will find suitable receiving help in 2010?

Point I was trying to make is Marshall will be missed and it will take Royal and Gaffney to step thier games up to bridge the gap of BMarsh getting traded.

Personally, I don't mind the trade, just answering the question. If we're gonna get a 2nd round pick, I'm glad it's for this draft AND he coexisted a year longer with McD than I expected him too.

I am saying that Denver's top 3 WR's in 2010 will have no problem going 190 Rec. x 2,200 yards x 12 TD's.

Read into that what you will.
