Default Biggest dumpster fire avoided?

Easily this season could be so much worse.

What was the WORST dumpster fire that we avoided dealing with.

Kaepernickle: Sucks at football, QBing isn't his priority, and I think Denver would be protesting his ass out of town.

Sanchize: Butt fumble.

Peyton Manning: I am a Manning fan. He was under contract for another season. I think he would have been our best game manager option, as long as he understood his new position.

RGIII: Was a legit option. His career is probably over.

Brent: Brent. 3.2 yards/attempt for 72 million.

Exactly. Elway didn't panic. The Texans did.

I vote Kaepernick. He sucks like Sanchize but is also a distraction. I seriously would have a hard time rooting for him.

I still say the options are tough just looking at the players. Kaperdick hasn't done much the last 2 weeks and RG3 probably would have died behind this line. Sanchez would have made worse mistakes in our close games. Brock is one that I thought would have done better in Denver compared to Houston at this point. He says he didn't like Kubiak's system but Texans system isn't fitting well with him also or he admits he sucks. Lots of grenades launched and we weren't in the kill zone. ColdCockCity should realize that what we have isn't so bad. Then again, he did want Sanchez to stay and start.

I ultimately vote for Brock because even if we sign for a tad less, he isn't worth that type of money. We might have had/have trouble signing or extending contracts that we were able to do so with our 2nd-4th option.

Biggest thing about Brett is the long-term commitment required.

Elway wouldn't have done deals with any of the other guys that handcuffed him for multiple years. Brad was going to get paid franchise money for 3 years regardless of how he did.

Lots of dumpster fires



But I picked the one who had the highest chance of actually being the 2016 starter. One on the roster this offseason.


The bigger fire miles away won't burn like the smaller fire right under your feet would.

I see Brock as an unintentional avoiding fire. Talib before the game said Brock was their guy for 2016. Brock quit on them. If it had gone the Broncos way back then, Brock would be starting for Denver this year at 16M per. So IMO the fire was avoided because of non Broncos.

Sanchez on the other hand was on the roster and the Broncos intentionally avoided that dumpster blaze.


Both fires avoided by different approaches.

Definitely Brock.

Kaep would've been $7 million for one year against the cap. Brock would've been closer to $40 million spread amongst 2 years.

Needs to be multiple choice poll.

Kap and Brent were the biggest disasters avoided.

Butt-fumble was brought in to backup but played himself out of town so that wasn't really avoided, he just failed.

Kap and Brent would have cost us the money to extend Sanders and fill out the roster, maybe even impacting Von's deal in some way.

We were very lucky to hit on Siemian last year and Lynch this year. Don't need to worry about the QB position for awhile.

I was not sad about Brent leaving, but if he was here we would have been about the same as we are with Siemian. Obviously our return on investment is greater with Siemian. But I don't think Brock would "suck."

RGIII did better until he was injured, and I think he would have fit this offense well.

I feel the same way as above about Kaepernick.

Peyton was a shell of his former self, but if he was a backup, I would have been fine with it.

Mark Sanchez was a turnover machine and we only would have kept him if he was going to start. If we had him as our QB I believe we'd be 2-5 right now.

So Sanchez.

Kaepernick - we'd had to give a pick and the $ for his horrid play.

copperdick and it's not even close. Do any you think Brent would have be better than Semen if had stayed in Denver?

Just think about what that 17 per over 3 years would've cost us.

We're not talking about playing marginally better or worse at QB. We're talking about taking other gamechanging players off the field.

RGIII is the answer. At least is starting for his team..over paid or not. RGIII is being paid for absolutely nothing.

Actually.. yes I do. Brock looked a lot better than Siemian did last night, but we had the superior defense.

I genuinely think that BrOz would have been fine in our System and we would probably have a better record with him at the helm than we currently do.

Houston has struggled with utilizing the talent they have at QB, and keeping that Talent healthy for as long as they've been an organization.

I actually think that RG3 is the dumpsterfire to avoid because he's like Plummer in his prime, great on the edges and in the playaction, but trash in the pocket, but the decisions we would have made if we had actually gone for him with the draft, and with our trades afterwards would have sunk the organization this year, for sure. I genuinely think we would have traded away Siemian and not drafted Lynch.
