If I start my own thread instead of perusing the "first couple of pages," odds are it's just because I'm a little lazy. I promise, getting attention for something I write on here means nothing to me. You don't even know what city I live in, let alone my real name. Now if this board were full of hot women, that might be a different story.

    QFT :go:

    The Bear's 2010 first rounder has marginal value if the Bear's have a good season and are drafting 26th. What did the Broncos really gain. Not much
    Whatever practice squad guy!!!

    Sorry, Omelet I had to lol.

    Because of the Orton decision and the fact that McD is known for taking an unknown QB and fabricating real competitors out of them, I dont think the FO plans are to take a QB early.

    However, if a QB of real value is still available, and our otherwise planned picks are gone, I dont have a problem with taking the best player for the money we will have to pay them rather than just plugging up holes to plug up holes.

    Draft pick decisions bear long term consequences. To pick a position over value will weaken any leverage we can employ in the future.

    We have needs now and in a perfect world, our Defensive preferential picks will be available, but I am on board with improvising on the fly and adapting to whats left on the board come our turn to select.

    Look what Cassel's value was after one year on the field with McD. I wish I could be a fly on the wall in our war room during the draft.

    PS Weapon X -- most of the replies of yours seem to be defensive after you yourself have been offensive. Can't we band together like Broncos fans should? This is not some ghetto message board where kids have pissing contests. We are Broncos fans damnit Respect to u too for that simple fact

    He's gone. He's not ever coming back. Give it a rest.

I am not going to search through forums every time I feel like posting something to satisfy people like you, keep on calling people out its hilarious.

So let me steal a line from you, "These are message boards. If ya dont like the song feel free to turn the radio off"

    I'm adding to the thread in which I stated my personal opinion and had another member of this board call me out on it. So, in turn, you've added to a thread that I believe in unnecessary by quoting me which has resulted in me posting again because people feel the need to quote me and question my motives for posting my opinion. See what people don't understand is it's not that I don't think the post the op made shouldn't exist, I believe that there are plenty of other threads in which his post could have been made in and creating a whole new thread for your 'opinion' which has been stated by who knows how many people on this board is completely unnecessary. Thanks for waking up, I'm honored that you've taken time out of your day to notice me.

    Who said they gained anything? And what purpose? If you happen to know why McDidn'tItellyouIwasamoron got rid of a top 5 QB for a, well, not top 5 QB, by all means, share it with the rest of us.

    I already started a thread that explored this issue in much greater depth and sophistication:

    Bottom Line:


    Denver gave up the chance to get MUCH better draft picks from the Lions #1 overall, and Redskins#13 among numerous other teams (Bucs, Jets, etc.) because McDaniels wanted a veteran QB and decided that Kyle Orton was the best one available.

    If he likes Orton that much, fine! Keep Orton and see what he can do.

    IF he felt he needed a franchise QB from THIS season's draft, then he should have forgotten about Orton, taken the better picks, and then either drafted Matt Stafford or Mark Sanchez.

    But, it's a total WASTE to take the worse picks in order to get Orton, and then draft a QB, thus relegating Orton to the bench!

    For Sanchez to become a useful QB in 2010 he'd have to get some experience THIS season - just like Shanny started Cutler in game 10 of his rookie season.

    If Orton is only going to start for 10 games or so, it just wasn't worth it!
    First of all no one really knows what the other teams were offering, so we can't assume McD turned down better deals because of Orton. For all we know Detroit and Washington were only offering 1 1st rounder. I assume that the deal we got from Chicago was the best over all.

    Also drafting a first round QB wouldn't be a step back because our previous QB didn't want to play for us anymore. So it isn't like Denver has a choice, but to move on from Cutler. Cutler may have made the statements that he wanted to remain a Bronco, but his actions said other wise. Remember actions speak louder than words.

    I'm assuming you've never seen another one of my posts. I'm a long time Broncos fan who hadn't taken the time to actually register on these forums until we signed Dawkins. If you're concerned with the way I post maybe you could offer some in depth lessons on the proper way to express my opinion on these forums without offending you and giving you a case of butthurtitis over a post directed at someone else.

    i agree. but i think its risky drafting a qb even if the bears dont do well and get a better first rounder. drafting a qb high in this years draft is a mistake. stick to defense and draft rhett bomar in a later round. next year you will have the ammo to trade up to get one of next years top prospects. next years qb class is looking awsome so far. (tbow,bradford ect.)
    That's what I'm thinking. I doubt we'll move up to get Sanchez, but again, we don't know that
    Rhett Bomar is listed as the 5th best QB in the draft by some websites behind; Stafford, Sanchez, Freeman and Pat White
    Rhett Bomar is probably going 3rd behind Stafford and Sanchez next Saturday. A lot of people like him, but everybody is quiet and holding their card close to the vest. I too hope we get Bomar in the 3rd round...
