    Oh then I agree. There was a video guy who works for the Fan radio station who had worked in the Broncos video department for 20 years. McDaniels fired him right when he got there. Some of the people he fired without a look made sense, like Nate Jackson. But some were just dickhole moves like letting Mike Leach leave and paying more money to a long snapper who can do fewer things and doesn't cover punts as well.

    Von Miller's problem will most likely be no big long term offer for an extension anytime soon. Unless he has a big yr in his contract yr he won't get big money.

    Any more suspensions, big injuries, most likely ruin his career for good.

    The #1 move I hated the most in the McD era, shown the light on what was to come for the time he was here. ahghhghghgh
    I don't know if my sarcasm screen is broken. But I think this is so close to the truth. When other coaches bring their players, they bring them in to help install their system. When McDumbass brought in Paxton it wasn't to bring in a new system of long snapping. It was just to say "I'm going to bring in my guys no matter who they are or how they play." This is what separates McDumbass from Elway and Fox and every other coach and GM out there. Elway and Fox asked the simple question "How can you help us win?" McDumbass asked asked "How can you fit our system?" Those are two very different questions. That's what Elway was/is trying to clean up.

    Why would you let go of a top 3 Defensive player, who is underpaid? Von's only problem was working a deal with a guy to skip a drug test. BFD. He's a massive producer and great in the locker room.
    Dumb answer. One more failed drug test and the guy is gone for a full season. Come on now.

    Lonie Paxton - overpaid, skipped the NE game in the playoffs to be with his high-risk pregnant wife.
    Tim Tebow - way too much sideshow, his erratic passing kept FA's away
    Lmao. Made some corrections for you. That Lonnie Paxton trying to care for his wife, that's a real cancer, let me tell ya.

    I haven't heard anything about him being a poor teammate. Most of his teammates seem to love him.

    He does need to get himself together and grow up a bit, but I don't see him as a locker room cancer type.

    One of the first moves Elway made was signing McGahee. he was probably released due more to injury, age, salary, fumbles and roster space

    totally agree

    I'm assuming he is referring to the overall attitude of the team rather any one player.

    I don't think Elway's statement needs further explanation...
    What is it you don't get?

    I know you're kind of joking, but some of our best players were Patriots or selected by former Patriots. Elway has been great about not caring who drafted you or where you played before so long as you could play. McDaniels was the one trying to purge the roster of any guy who wasn't Patriot. Dan Koppen Saved our season last year. Welker has been awesome.
