Default Patrick Peterson Fanboys: Watcha gonna do and who you gonna blame when Denver doesn't select him?

Patrick Peterson Fanboys: Watcha gonna do and who you gonna blame when Denver doesn't select him?

All this yapping and Peterson has one big problem: Denver is not taking him. Fortunately, no one in our front office is stupid enough to take a CB with the 2nd overall choice. With the 8th choice, sure. But not the 2nd overall pick.

But heads must roll for the Peterson Fanboys when Denver invariably passes over Peterson. How stupid can our front office be they will yell! So Peterson Fanboys, who you gonna blame? You have four choices:

1) Brian Xanders -- the most obvious and easiest choice. Has been a lightning rod for criticism since he arrived. I suspect he will win the blame game.

2) John Fox -- how much authority does he have? We shall see. But I suspect the fanboys will level a fair share of criticism towards him. This is the immortal Patrick Peterson we are talking about. I heard he can turn water into gatorade.

3) John Elway -- the darkhorse in the blame game. Blame Elway? Blasphemy! But this is the great Patrick Peterson we are talking about. The greatest cornerback to ever set foot on a football field. The man who can single-handedly prevent a team from scoring!

4) Pat Bowlen -- Gutless drunk does it again!!

If I had to put money on it, I'm rolling with Xanders getting the lionshare of the blame. But you never know.

I'm going to blame you, because you are a turd-sniffing bog trotter.

If I knew what that was, I probably would be pissed.

It is better to be pissed off than pissed on buddy. Unfortunately, you prefer the R. Kelly take.

If we land Dareus or Peterson at #2, I'm stoked. Them in a trade down? Awesome.

I'll be fine with Miller or Jordan in a trade down as well.

Are you dense? 99% of the people who prefer BPA (Peterson)....Will be fine with Miller or Dareus also...Maybe even Fairley.

You are missing the point 100% by labeling people who want Peterson 'fanboys'.
You may as well create a thread titled......."People who think BPA is a better draft philosophy, watcha gonna do when Denver selects for need"

As for blame....that will be easy when the time comes. If Denver picks Dareus and 2 years from now he is not head and shoulders better than the Fairley, Liuget, Austin, Paea, Wilkerson, etc....AND either Miller or Peterson look like they are on their way to becoming Reed/Polamalu type players...Game changing perennial pro bowlers. The blame will fall on Elway and Elway alone. Not for missing on a pick, because that happens to the best of them. But for playing it safe. Just like the Fox hire.

Give it time. It can get worse.

But ranking this offseason over the Cutler/Shanahan/Trade offseason? Wow, big statement.

You need to really have some kind of deep, pathetic need for arguing with strangers and being right all the time to make a thread like this.

It really is a pathetic thread considering he probably couldn't find 3 posters on the 'Mane who will be genuinely pissed if Peterson isn't the selection. Obviously his reading comprehension is next to nothing if he feels otherwise.

And to top it all off......His poll sucks too. Any 'Maner worth their salt would've included Griese in any poll involving blame.

Rev absolutely owned him in posts #37 & 47 of that thread so he gave up and started this one.....Which is actually worse.

I'd be fine with Peterson or Dareus or trading down a few spots and getting Miller if the other two are not there. Denver needs talent, where on defense that talent is going to be doesnt matter as much as getting talent in the first place.

This thread is not winning, BTW.
