To be fair, we could have given him more than 1 year after being a first round pick...just sayin'.

There are so many blunders Mcd has made within short period of time.
That's the reason we are 2-6.
I am not sure why Richard Quinn still with the team

Keep repeating yourself. It gets more interesting every time. No, really.

alphonso smith ADMITTED he dug himself a hole in denver he was never going to get out of, and got outplayed by 3 rookie CBs in training camp. and its McDs fault he actually realized he ****ed up in denver and started playing somewhere else?

half you idiots that are yelling at mcd for cutting him were crying about him drafting him and what a bust he is.

no matter how you spin it we messed up on this one.

he also has been holding some top WRs down and he almost had another pick six yesterday but he dropped it.

hes great at jumping routes hes looked like a solid tackler.

I count this as a way bigger miss than Hillis

Funny so many of those now saying trading Smith was a mistake didn't seem to think so at the time and many of them called Smith a mistake before he even played in a game last year. And many have given up on Moreno and Ayers, much less some other young players on the team, but Smith should have been given more time. Too many people want it both ways. Coaches can't get away with that, nor should fans.

Honestly, the moment Josh traded Smith away for 10 cents on the dollar he had already signaled just how badly he had screwed up the entire situation. The fact that Smith is experiencing such a resurgence in Detroit only serves as salt on the wound. Even if he had continued to be the bust that he was in Denver, the Broncos were never getting back that blown 1st round pick we gave up to grab him.

no, I am glad the kid is working out as harsh as some of the people here were about him and where he was picked

if anything it proves that the staff was right with their initial evaluation, it just didn't work out here for whatever reason

I hope he continues to play well

Team sport - amazing how a pass rush can help generate turnovers.
Fonz would STILL be chitty in our backfield.

That's what people aren't understanding. The Lions have a wayyyyy better D-Line then us. We saw how much they penetrated and used stunts in our preseason game. A good line will make your CB's look good.

Alphonso dogged it here in Denver, even though I was unhappy about what we gave up to get him. He should have stayed, there is no way that Nate Jones was better than him. He sucks!

It's very comparable to the Hixon situation, Hixon just wasn't the same after Everett was hurt on that hit. He needed a change of scenery. Phonz said he didn't put forth enough effort here, he needed a change of scenery. The thing that sucks was it was lose-lose for us. They weren't going to play well enough for us, yet they had the talent to succeed.

Part of the coaches job is to motivate a player.
Mcd is a failure..

you can pretty much just copy and paste the crap you put forth and post it into every thread....

Discussion about Smith --- > McD is a failure
Moreno Injured ----- > McD is killing this team
Randy Moss Waived ----- > McD should have found a way to motivate him

The way he is playing now, if he had played like that in Denver would have been worth a first round pick and it would not have been blown.

Shame really.
