Default FOX Grades

Fox shows they are no better at sports evaluation than anything else they do. They gave Denver the 3rd lowest grade behind Titans, and Redskins. I love it! For once, in a long time, I woke this morning without a sense of dread for the Broncos. You are friggin morons FOX to think Carolina, Jacksonville, Minnesota, KC, Cincy did better than us. One question, who the hell is going to throw the ball to Green since you state he will start right away?

BTW, Kate Middleton's dress is absolutely beautiful!

The fox Grade, just post draft sour grapes they probably guaranteed we woud take Dareus or Peterson. I've thought for years that all the pre draft hype for some players is caused by the size of the bribes payed by the agents, post draft sour grapes just to try to justify their failed predictions.

That's what I was thinking.

good call...

we get the 3rd lowest grade after selecting arguably the highest graded player in the entire draft?...

i don't care if you don't think we drafted for need or not, how can you score that low for drafting the best player?...

comical...

That's like Boba Fett and his typical troll crap and what he's saying on CP, moron, it's not a one pick draft.

The panel fawned over Dareus, with highlights and analysis. All they wanted to highlight about Miller is that he cries. I'm not surprised we received that low of a grade...

As soon as the cameras showed that, Mrs. Bean without hesitation said, "He's only crying because he thinks Wink is still employed by the Broncos." True story.

As good as I think Miller will be, KC's pick has better value. Getting a 6'4" 225 lb WR with a42 inch vertical that has great ball skills is hard rare to be there at 27. The fact that KC traded down and got a 3rd round and still drafted this guy is amazing. Physically, he's very similar to Calvin Johnson. He has a ton of upside too. Great pick for where we picked.
Miller is a great player too, but many thought he was the 3rd best player in the draft and you picking him at 2 is probably why they put that.

It's easier to get players like that at 27 when they call out their coaches and teammates in college.

So that means he's a cancer? I remember Bronco fans saying Moeaki was gonna be like Croyle because he had injury problems in college. Oops.

You think Pioli didn't know about that? Pioli has done extensive research on this kid for 2 years. One of our coaches Bill Stull was at Pitt with him in 09 and our head coach has a history of bringing out the best in WR's (Bowe, T.O. and Fitzgerald), and our locker room now has a ton of quality leaders so Baldwin will know what's expected of him.

Baldwins pro's far outweigh his con's and he has tremendous upside.

I not really excited about this draft. In many ways I think that Elway and company took the safe route throughout this 1st year of the rebuilding -from hiring Fox, to the selections they made so far. Maybe this is what this team needs right now, but I have feeling that we regret not being a little less conservative and picked some DTs.

I'm sure the whole route running thing won't be very important in the NFL either. Point is, if you want people to fawn over KC's picks, try posting about them on a KC board.
