Check this guy's 2011 stats and compare to Tebow. BOY did we just downgrade...

EDIT: This is what bothers me --

Hanie QB rating is 41.6

Report: Broncos agree to 2-year deal with QB Hanie
* 3 minutes ago - by Andrew Mason
*
John Elway said Tuesday the Broncos didn't have a "Plan B" behind Peyton Manning. The closest thing to it will be ex-Bears QB Caleb Hanie, who agreed on a two-year contract Saturday, ESPN reported. Hanie had a promising relief appearance in the 2010 NFC Championship game but struggled as a starter in 2011, going 0-4 and logging a 3-to-9 TD-to-INT ratio and a 41.8 rating.

I don't like Hanie.

3 touchdowns, 10 interceptions in 116 attempts.

50.9% of completed passes and a 41.6 QB rate.

With Tebow out of the equation, I hope the Broncos draft a QB in the 3rd or 4th round. Even if the guy does not become the future QB of the Broncos. The team will need some insurance behind Manning and Hanie clearly is not the answer. Hanie and Weber can compete for the 3rd string job.

Without any Bias what so ever, this is/ was a terrible move. Bears thought Cutler would never get hurt and when he did Hanie came in and lost all the games most of which was against a weak AFC West. (no offense) to you broncos fans but is is exactly what youre going to have if he starts "no offense" This guy was absolutely terrible and it was worst the Grossman experience.

Ive been thinking about this signing and I like it. Sure, having a savy vet like Bubby behind Elway was perfect and he filled in better than most would have thought, but I still like the idea of having a young prospect behind Mannning because if Manning goes down, the offense will probably be screwed whether its a Bubby backup caliber player or a young guy like Caleb because of the style of offense Manning runs....So the Broncos might as well develope a talented young Qb now. Why the hell not? An legit vet behind Manning would make little sense $ wise as well whereas Caleb is cheap.

Not a major signing but Im behind it.

The point of getting rid of Tebow is independent from what other back up we bring in.

We got rid of Tebow because:

1) The circus surrounding him
2) The fact that he can't run a system that even resembles what Peyton runs. We can't have two separate offenses for two separate QB's.

I really hope this doesn't have to be addressed every single time we look at a QB, draft one or sign one....

Stanton already got traded to the Colts. And how come people say "why did we get rid of tebow?" You guys know he can't stay as a back up. I don't think Tebow would've mind staying in Denver but you know his crazy fans will be chanting his name anytime Manning makes a mistake. And that's not the kind of thing you want when your trying to win a championship. You guys need to let it go. He's gone.

Hanie is just a back up and if Manning does get injured then oh well......that was the gamble Broncos took. And we get a franchise QB next draft.

Cuz that makes sense (not aimed at you I know you're just the messenger) but how stupid ...seriously

Elway just didn't like Tebow I said it from day 1 and was called crazy but now how crazy does it seem?

Nothing stupid about it. Tebow's style of play is an injury waiting to happen. It's the same problem the Eagles have with Michael Vick. How do you build an offense around a guy if a) he's the only guy who can run it well, but b) he's almost certainly going to miss several games due to injury during the season? This was one reason there was informed speculation that Tebow would be traded to the Eagles to back up Vick, as he might be the only quarterback in the league who could realistically run a similar scrambling offense to the one Vick runs.

The amusing thing about this is that it's actually a point in Tebow's favor if you think about it, because the bad performance he put on in the Patriots playoff game was due to his playing through injuries that would have kept him on the bench for a month had the season somehow continued. Everybody thought he was having a terrible game, and McCoy was weirdly calling running play after running play right up the defense's gut, but the real problem was that Tebow was playing hurt and they were trying to hide that from the Patriots. Which explains a lot about the play-calling. If your quarterback has a sternum injury, it's easy to see why he's off-target with his passes. That must have been terribly painful to try to throw with.

What a joke of a hire. Hanie lacks the mental strength to be a back up to a future HOFmer. He may be able to throw it but the problem is he likes to throw it to the other team.

Also, where is the depth a RB? I thought they were going to protect Manning with their vaunted running game? Right now they have an aging back, a back that lacks vision from the backfield and a couple of bench warmers that are only ok in stretches.

Why do people care who the back up is?

Most teams are screwed if the starter goes down so it's not like it really matters.

The only way the Broncos can have even some semblance of a decent season if Manning gets hurt is if the Broncos can somehow build a defense and a running game along the lines of the Texans or Ravens. Even Caleb Hanie can win a few games with a defense and running game like that.

He blew chicago's chance at the playoffs. Peyton is going to take all the snaps in practice and in the games so our back up is going to have no real chance to get ready. I think bringing in a been there done that vet like a McNabb or even Culpepper would have been a much better option

There is a big difference between:

A QB with 17 touchdowns / 9 interceptions / 75.1 QB rate / traded with a 7th for a 4th + 6th...

...And a QB with 3 touchdowns / 10 interceptions / 41.6 QB rate / not re-signed by his former team and only got a visit with 1 team

The Jets' backup has a higher QB rate than their starter

The Broncos' backup has a QB rate 53.3 points lower than the starter

When they brought in Manning, the thought was FA would come pouring in.
Where are the improvements outside of Manning? The defense is still suspect, the running game is not so vaunted, and the offense as a whole looks to be going the way of a passing attack instead of a balanced attack. They could have brought in Campbell instead of Hanie if they were serious.

Hppefully we draft someone for #2 or Weber beats him out...we just downgraded our backup here.

Aaaand...because they did not believe in Tebow. Elway did not think he would be a great QB and therefore they trade him. I think it is that easy.

But Caleb Hanie will?

That makes no sense. Tebow wasn't even being paid much at all.

When they brought in Manning, the thought was FA would come pouring in.
Where are the improvements outside of Manning?

Caldwell is a better receiver than Royal (Royal was more valuable on special teams though...wish we still had him), Tamme is a better receiving tight end than Rosario, and Dreeson is a better overall tight end than Fells. Those are three very valuable singings, all three will be a bigger part of the offense than the players they replaced were.

With another running back (Jonathan Stewart? Draft pick?) and improved O-line play (that means Walton) we easily have the talent to field a top 5 offense.

They really couldn't find a better backup? I know he's probably really cheap but....:(
And that's the eason EFX signed him. Cap room has gotten real small in the past week and we went with the most economical option.

The Bears only needed to win a couple games to get into the playoffs after Cutler got hurt, and Hanie couldn't get that done against alot of teams they were favored to beat. I'm amazed he was signed to be a backup.

Yeah, but after Cutler went down, they then lost Forte for 3 of Hanie's 4 games. If you know anything about Chicago's team, you know that they have swinging gates playing offensive tackle. The only thing offsetting that was that the defense had to respect the run because of Forte. Once Forte went down, they were toast given that Oline and their terrible receivers. Hanie's bad stats for those games aren't a surprise; almost any backup put in that position would struggle.

It makes no sense if you think of Caleb Hanie as "Caleb Hanie", but if you think of him as "Curtis Painter", it makes all the Matt Barkley sense in the world.

Where are the improvements outside of Manning? The defense is still suspect, the running game is not so vaunted, and the offense as a whole looks to be going the way of a passing attack instead of a balanced attack. They could have brought in Campbell instead of Hanie if they were serious.

If Manning were not here, we would not have been able to get the FA's we got. They wouldn't have come here.

Report: Broncos agree to 2-year deal with QB Hanie
* 3 minutes ago - by Andrew Mason
*
John Elway said Tuesday the Broncos didn't have a "Plan B" behind Peyton Manning. The closest thing to it will be ex-Bears QB Caleb Hanie, who agreed on a two-year contract Saturday, ESPN reported. Hanie had a promising relief appearance in the 2010 NFC Championship game but struggled as a starter in 2011, going 0-4 and logging a 3-to-9 TD-to-INT ratio and a 41.8 rating.
*
Denver Broncos RapidReports | All National Football League RapidReports

That's not Plan B.



I don't like Hanie.

3 touchdowns, 10 interceptions in 116 attempts.

50.9% of completed passes and a 41.6 QB rate.

With Tebow out of the equation, I hope the Broncos draft a QB in the 3rd or 4th round. Even if the guy does not become the future QB of the Broncos. The team will need some insurance behind Manning and Hanie clearly is not the answer. Hanie and Weber can compete for the 3rd string job.

Sad, isn't it? This guy's 2011 QBR is nearly half of Tebow's...


Why did we trade Tebow, again?

Because of the circus, and he's NOT a drop back pocket passer that would fit with Manning, and the offense we will be running. Very simple.

How many more time you folks gonna keep asking that?

For the same reasons that have already been stated (literally) 1000 times on this message board in the last week. In fact, I think question has been phrased in that identical way almost every time. And yet you, and everyone else keep asking it.

If you don't know by now, you just aren't listening.

Caleb Hanie can't back up to anything the potential of Tebow. Don't give my system bs... Tebow can win games with this team. So stupid to trade him and bring in a guy like Hanie. If Manning goes down, we are completely F'd.

There is no plan B right now.

...................I'll repost what I posted yesterday

how come people say "why did we get rid of tebow?" You guys know he can't stay as a back up. I don't think Tebow would've mind staying in Denver but you know his crazy fans will be chanting his name anytime Manning makes a mistake. And that's not the kind of thing you want when your trying to win a championship. You guys need to let it go. He's gone.

Hanie is just a back up and if Manning does get injured then oh well......that was the gamble Broncos took. And we get a franchise QB next draft.

Looks like we still might get Dennis Dixon too:

http://espn.go.com/blog/afcwest/post/_/id/42148/afc-west-notes-70


The Broncos are visiting with Pittsburgh reserve quarterback Dennis Dixon. His visit started before Denver signed QB Caleb Hanie. Hanie has the inside track to back up Peyton Manning in Denver, but the Broncos are still interested in signing Dixon to compete with Hanie during training camp.

If Dixon is signed, Denver may still draft a quarterback to develop.

Center Jeff Saturday explained why he signed with Green Bay as opposed to Denver to reunite with Manning. Saturday told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he thought the Packers wanted him more than the Broncos did. Denver has third-year center J.D. Walton, who they are happy with. Denver looked at Saturday because of his comfort level with Manning.

In other AFC West news:

The Kansas City Star has a cool look at the Chiefs’ visit to Iowa’s pro day.

Drew Brees too short to play QB and he won a Super Bowl in New Orleans. Not to mention he now owns Dan Marino's most prized passing record. Height has nothing to do with a QB's ability.

Cool story bro. The fact is though he was also drafted by the Rockies to play baseball in the majors, but eventually turned it down to play football. Not just your average flash in the pan mobile QB. This guy shined at N.C. State and Wisconsin. He's pretty athletic and would be a steal for any team that got him. Thanks for playing.:thumb:

I would actually be intrigued by that if we got him. He's a good guy to groom and build up behind Manning. He was a stud at Oregon and very explosive. But I doubt he's ever been in an offense as complex as the one Manning runs, so he's going to need some time to get up to speed. Hopefully Peyton doesn't go down early, but Chip Kelly was the OC his last year and they roasted people. If we got Dixon I would be much happier with him behind Manning than Hanie.

Interestingly, the Ducks offense is more complex than most colleges out there. In addition under Chip Kelly and Mike Bellotti the quarterbacks decided on which play to run based on what the defense does as the ball is snapped. Dennis was the leading Heisman candidate his senior year and Oregon was on their way to the National Championship game until he hurt his knee. He is still very explosive and quite frankly I think one of our best options if we can get him. He has been learning from Pittsburgh under Ben since he was drafted and now if he can learn from Manning, he will be an amazing weapon

This is garbage. It's not fair to cite a freak rib injury sustained after a sack in the pocket in which Tebow got a crushing injury. If anything, this article makes the Broncos not only look like crap but have suspicious motives...Stay tuned, the *C@@P* is only going to get deeper.

03-26-2012, 02:36 PM
There is a big difference between:

A QB with 17 touchdowns / 9 interceptions / 75.1 QB rate / traded with a 7th for a 4th + 6th...

...And a QB with 3 touchdowns / 10 interceptions / 41.6 QB rate / not re-signed by his former team and only got a visit with 1 team

The Jets' backup has a higher QB rate than their starter

The Broncos' backup has a QB rate 53.3 points lower than the starter

Just saying

I understand Haine is bad. It was a diss on Florida

I'm glad he is back in the 303 but hopefully he never sees the field.

broncolassiter
03-27-2012, 08:01 AM
I don't really care for Hanie, but he could surprise us. In Chicago he was put into a bad situation, The main RB was out with injury and he had no receivers to speak of, kinda hard for any QB to succeed in those situations.
