Default We are the Laughing Stock of the NFL

Thanks coach McD...You turned one of the proudest franchises in the NFL into the laughing stock of the leauge. I hope you prove me wrong, but I haven't ever been this frustrated with an NFL draft. WE HAVE ALL these holes, and you trade back trade back, pick up a WR with a bum foot and draft a QB that MANY and i do say MANY draft analsyts say is a 2 year project..can you say EGO??!!!...WOW.. I have been one of the biggest supporters of Coach McD but I am officially putting him on the HOTSEAT starting right now. If I am Champ or one of the Vets, i am pissed he didn't address the defense especially with all the holes still left on the offensive line..Really bummed right now, wish we had a better GM in place to put McD in check.. I think he has way to much control, may be a very good gameday coach but that doesn't mean he's a good personnel guy.

umm..okay? If it were just Dukes, I'd agree, but we both know thats not the truth..We had a chance for an epic draft, and I'm afraid we just fell flat on our face.

I agree. They had a chance to get better on both lines and they picked up guys that won't help this year. Mostly I'm pissed at the picks they gave up to get Tebow. Could have had depth everywhere.

I think after last off season we already was the laughing stocks ... so it's just a continuation . Hell last year even my loser Bengal fan friends was riding me for our last off season . So the Tebow pick i'm sure is going to be great fun ... not .

You know it's a bad day when I actually like the two picks (would have preferred Tebow later, but think he's got the foundation to be very good) and all the McD's supporters are bashing him. ha ha.

If other's opinions of the Broncos affect you in any meaningful way, get a life. It's a football team, that's it.

So, who's the center smart guy? Tell me that we needed a developmental QB more than a high quality center or a young nose tackle? Your an idiot like our coach.

The crappiest part was that watching Mayock trying to hold down the laughter with the pick. If it was Mel Kiper. I would give a damn, but it was Mayock. Look the guy goit it right with Young, Linart, and Cutler. Then he got it right with Ryan, and Stafard. And I bet you dollars to donuts that he gets it right here.

There is a bigger picture, but 10 wins next year just because Tebow is on our sideline.

No kidding. McDaniels is obviously not doing himself any favors if he wants to fly under the radar with his rather bold moves, but ultimately (in my mind) a team/franchise/coach is judged by the results on the field. And by that standard we just look like an average team in a transition period.

If we dive bomb this next season we can start talking "laughing stock." Until then, to the rest of the league, we're just a curiosity with a lot of question marks that is coming off a wildly inconsistent season.

Dude, one center in the entire draft has been taken. You think Pouncey is the only Center worth being drafted? Cry me a ****ing river.

what center was worthy of the 25 pick smart guy? JD Walton, Matt Tennant, etc sure the hell weren't. They are all 2nd to 3rd round grades. And McD talked about how NT Dan Williams only had one good season at Tennessee. Do some research before you start calling others out!

You are the idiot for crying like you got sand in your cooch after ONE round in the draft.

Did the whole "deepest draft" in decades part not penetrate for you? We have 5 more picks. Hold the crying game until AFTER the draft is completely over.

You mean like the guy we took at 18 last year?

If Shanahan did this most people here would flip. Weren't we supposed to be valuing draft picks, building our lines, getting younger, etc., etc.? Instead we trade up twice with no competition and take a WR from an option offense and a QB that may not even be a QB.
