Free Agency was not going to get us there. It was slim pickens from the start and everything was at a premium price.
What I suspect Elway is working on and what we need to do:
1. Get a trade going for Joe Thomas. Give Cleveland our #2 and throw in Donald Stevenson/Sambrilo/Schofield and a 6th or some combo similar to that.
2. If Romo gets released, tell him he can come along and captain the ship but it would have to be at a cheap base salary and big incentives for post season success.
3. Draft Christian with our #1. He instantly makes our team better. Better starting field position, and a heck of a weapon to play with when CJ and Booker aren't pounding the ball.
4. Basically use the rest of the draft on best available DTs and OTs.
The most important thing here is getting Joe Thomas, that instantly makes our Oline much better which has a ripple effect on the rest of the offense.
That is how you get to the super bowl.
