Default Safe to assume Zane Beadles is our new starting right tackle?

Fact of the matter is, he did shut down Robert Mathis, started numerous games at the position, was a left tackle in college, was drafted in the 2nd round, and we decided not to re-sign Ryan Harris.

He was solid at the position this year. Also guessing we will move Eric Olsen into the left guard spot.

Whatya think?

At this point without a coaching staff, I wouldn't presume anything.

Exactly.

Let's hope whoever comes in will be putting these underachievers through their paces this offseason and then determining who takes this team forward for 60 mins every Sunday.

Our line played much better when he moved over. I'd look for us to find a new RT, personally. Someone mentioned switching Clady. Not sure about that, but I couldn't rule that out either.

No. He was a much better Guard.

Clady ain't moving. He is a LT in the NFL were all the best pass rusher line up.

I kind of think Clady might end up on the trading block.

Depends on the coach. If it's Dennison - not so sure Zane is athletic enough. If the coach wants to run a power scheume - not sure he's good enough.

I'd take 2 first rounders and a 2nd for Clady.

Probably right... but we need to protect Tebow's blind side. Wonder if there are any good RTs out there in FA this year....

I'd personally be conflicted to see it happen. I really like Clady a great deal (he's my current adopt-a-Bronco). But I recognize that with Tebow under center, Clady's value to the team isn't as high as it was before. He's probably more valuable to us as trade bait.

Which radio guys?

I've been listening to The Fan some lately on the internet. Good god are most of those guys awful. The guy Saturday was on saying that we should draft Cam Newton, and A. Williams was on today saying some stuff that was equally ridiculous.

If they decide to trade Clady because of some left handed tight end that's trying to play quarterback, Elways should be fired. Tebow will never be the grade of player Clady already is. In fact, I bet Clady throws a tighter spiral.

Beadles is a good RT better than he is a guard we just need to find ourselves a mauling LG

So get rid of another non-issue position to fix other positions? Makes no sense.

Thats making a huge assumption that Tebow is going to be our quarterback beyond next year. Clady is a known commodity. If the front office decides that Tebow isn't going to be a starting NFL QB by the time next season ends than well be looking at drafting a QB in 2012. I would hate for the front office to trade a potential HOF LT because our unknown, raw, not-sure-he's-gonna-make-it QB happens to play left handed.

If you look at it merely from that perspective, it doesn't make sense. If you look at it from the perspective of a team with need all over the field that has an over-investment in a position of diminished importance to the team, then it makes a lot of sense.

I have the same gut feeling as anyone about trading away a quality guy like Clady. But like I say, we don't need a first rounder protecting Tebow's front side, and we have real needs all over the place. We could probably get by with a 5th rounder at LT right now, and use Clady to bring in a top round DE.

IMO, Clady's value is not effected one bit by the fact Tebow's a lefty. In the NFL, your premium pass rushers come off the right side making it vital you have an upper-tier LT; regardless of if your QB is right or left handed. Now will the Broncos need an upgrade at RT? Yes, unless someone has invincibility potion they can give to Harris. But regardless of who is at QB, you HAVE to have a guy who can block the Freeney's of the world who all come off that side.
