Default Questioning McD's Trades

With all the trades McD has made. I want to know when he becomes questioned and accountable for them ?

There have been trades and with the exception of Cutler and Dawkins they have all been bad moves.

I wasn't aware that he wasn't being held accountable for them. Are you missing the weekly Hillis threads and posts about his performance?

marshall had 30 yards and i think 2 drops today, fyi. cutler trade does not need explanations.

phons got beat out by 3 rookies in camp this year, mcd would be lying to media, fans and coaches if he let him stay when he was NOT the best player. phons admitted multiple times that he knew he messed up here, im glad hes doing good in detroit, but 90% of the people on this forum called for his release in preseason, and now taht hes doing good, they act like they wanted him here all along.

hillis trade was a total disaster. scheffler trade was not great, we dont need him here but should have gotten more for him.

Saying Nate Fuggin Jones is better to keep than Smith is laughable

nate is a backup safety/CB, versatility wins roster spots in this league. i agree jones is awful, but its just how it is.

I'm okay with the Marshall trade considering it got Brandon Lloyd on the field, saved a ton of money and got two second-round picks. I loved trading down twice in the first round and ending up with Bey-Bey.

My judgment is reserved for a couple of years on Tebow (I wanted Terrence Cody in the second round more).

Dawkins wasn't a trade.

One thing I've always loved about the Orange Mane is that people here actually think that fans have a say in how the organization is run. That we can hold people accountable and change things. It's hilarious.

Dawkins was a free agent.

But as for the trades, every single one of them has sucked.

I think its pretty much wrapped up that the McD administration makes nonsensical, horrible trades.

Default Questioning picking McD, period

Oh what could have been...a defensive-minded HC for Broncs, Spagnuolo or Morris, keeping Hillis, Marshall, even Cutler, drafting Orakpo #12 in '09, trade down in 1st round '10 draft to get Pouncey. We'd be rollin right now.

Phonz's failure is still McDs issue. Why keep drafting CBs if you have Champ, Goodman, Phonz, etc? There were plenty of other areas to go with the team. It'd be like drafting 3 QBs and then claiming to not understand why everyone's upset that you cut talent. Sure you did but you backed yourself into that position.

Yea, that McDaniels has gotten a free ride from the media and fans, huh?


It's fair, though. Trade a fan-fav like Hillis and then your running game sucks... and people are going to complain.

He can remedy it all by getting this team on track, but that's going to take work and time. We'll see whether or not it happens.

Sorry I thought we gave up a late round pick for Dawkins My bad.

I understand that the fans have been on him but what I am talking about is, when does Bowlen step in and say, no more.

I sincerely believe the OL makes a bigger difference than any RB does. No RB can open his own holes. I'm not a big fan of McD but it shouldn't be the Hillis factor and his success that gets McD fired.

What definitely makes it worse is that 2 of our so called castoffs turned into the Browns and Lions best players.

Watching run-over the Pats hurts, but I'm not sure he would have the same success with the Broncos current O-line.

What bugs me the most about the Hillis trade is it was for Brady Quinn. Thats fine if you think Quinn might be your QB in the future, but then taking Tebow absolutely made that trade terrible by trading a versatile RB for a #3 QB.
