  • Steal Talib from the Pats?

    Was just reading on Rotoworld this morning that the Pats wont Tag Talib at 11M, but rather let him test the market. The writer suggested that he could see a deal totaling 21M over 3 years.

    I took a few things from this... 1. If Talib isnt worthy of the tag then DRC probably isnt either. 2. Same for a long term 40-50M deal. 3. It may be in the Broncos interest to over pay slightly for Talib to steal him away from the Pats.

    Say what you want about the Chiefs, Chargers, Ravens, Colts, Bengals and Steelers but the Patriots are clearly still our #1 rival in the AFC.

    Also, signing Talib would reunite him with Harris who he played along side of at Kansas.

    I'd rather take DRC who is much less if a head case.

      Talib disappears in big games..we already have enough players doing that.
      I want Elway to get leaders in this team.Enough of players like champ,Manning etc..

        no, because that means we overpaid and the Pats won.

          No the Pats would win by getting Talib back. He is by far their best defensive back

            Nope. His replacement will be worse and I think our cap/cash will be aplenty if we dont give long term deals to Know, Deck or DRC

              Yes, if we sign him we over paid. It's a fact

                Saying someone is Over-payed/Under-Payed is very subjective. And how do you put a price on stealing your main rivals best or 2nd best defensive player? Im not sure you understand the correct definition of the term "fact".

                  Talib has had suspension and health issues. I'd rather have DRC.

                    He won't consider Denver if Welker stays, he's scurred of him!

                      Do....not.....want.

                      He's starting to make Amendola look like Cal Ripken.

                        don't think the two of you got my point. We won in the Wes Welker deal 1) because we took him away from the pats and more importantly 2) we paid at or below market.

                        To get Talib away from the Pats # 2 wouldn't exists so we thus lose. I'm not questioning if he's good or not but we couldn't get him for a decent $.

                          Since when are they our rival? Historically, we've owned them.

                          Unless you think Elway will set his scotch down long enough to do that evil Dr. hand-wringing thing, while he, Pat and Fox all laugh about how to make other teams worse. In that case, good take!

                              He would be over paid, it's a fact. Kind of like you starting the crappiest threads on the mane.
