Default Prepare for a rebuilding year

I would be surprised if the Broncos finish 2010 with more wins than 2009. Without Brandon Marshall the offense has been hugely downgraded. Lets just hope Demaryius Thomas learns the offense next year and can make a big impact in 2011.

I'll admit that I'm scared. I can't believe Bowlen has given the 34 Josh McDaniels so much power. He has completely dismantled the Broncos organization. I hope he knows what he's doing. I'm skeptical, but willing to give him the benefit of doubt right now. He's either a genius in 2 years or a complete idiot. out...

Out? Did you think you were calling the Jim Rome show or something?

Oh and in case you missed it, McD is doing what Bowlen wanted with the change in mentality. He got rid of talented malcontents who only cared about themselves. Its glorious and refreshing.

He has drafted some great talent in the 2 WR's and the OL. The Cox pick is questionable but really its the bottom of the draft now and with what they have picked up take a chance on this guy. If he doesn't get his act together cutting him will not be costly.

Sometimes when it snows it's cold, but sometimes the sun is also out and it's warm, you never know what you will get. You just have to wait and see, and start pointless threads about it.

Are you an NFL Scout? NFL or College Coaching background? You haven't got a clue if his approach will work or not and neither does anyone. He's a greenhorn with no proven winning track record as a headcoach. Belicheck was the brains not McD.

If the guard and center are what we all hope they are, the offense will be fine...most likely better than last year. Much better. And with the additions we made on the d line, I see us winning 10 games...easily.

Except on offense, where McDaniels coached the players, designed the plays, and called the plays on game day.

But hey, enjoy being a cup half empty kind of person. Our D is a year further along in its development. We've addressed our two big OL needs with young talent. We've got two new good young WRs to step into the void left by Marshall leaving. We've got a young QB for the future who can immediately contribute in special packages while he develops.

But yes, we will regress, obviously, because we don't have one WR who was as inconsistent as he was exciting.

The real question is, is McDaniels insane enough to think that Tebow is ready earlier rather then later.

Funny, I didn't notice all those playoff games that Cutler and Marshall were leading the Broncos to.

Ready for probably 5-10 snaps out of the Wild Horses formation already.

Too early to say right now IMO. Josh has handled a few of our issues very well. He's stocked the QB position full of talent. He put a timer on Orton's reign. He picked up some interior linemen and WR's to potentially offset Marshall's loss.

The defense looks rough right now with various holes in it but none of the offenses in the AFC West look that tough outside of SD's.

We'll see. The schedule looks soft this year so we have a chance at improving our record if we play smart, tough, and physical. Depends on the defense a lot too though.

Last year draft was worse. I am not sure if any one of them(except moreno) can contribute.
Regarding this year's draft, I am fine will all draft picks(except Tebow).

TBH I'm not getting my hopes up for this season in terms of playoffs.

Not that it's a bad thing, if we make the playoffs great, if we don't but see overall improvement in the team that's good also.


It's nice to know we are building towards something for a change.

You laugh now, but when McDaniels unveils the triple center offense, you'll see. Three centers with three QB's on the field at all times.

triple center offense.

Is that anything like a double split extravaganza? (hold the whipped)
