    Our best chance at offensive success

    Kyle Orton at QB

    Brandon Lloyd at 1WR

    Eric Decker in the Slot

    Eddie Royal at 2WR

    Willis McGahee in the backfield

    Eric Decker is a prototypical slot wide receiver. It's not for little guys anymore. Wes Welker is short, but he's not little. Eddie had his best season on the outside, and two down years in the slot. Fox moved him back outside where he belongs and he should stay there. Decker has the speed to outrun linebackers and the size to outjump safeties. That's where he should be and where we should attack. That opens up everything else. That opens up Royal deep, Lloyd deep, running lanes for McGahee, and underneath stuff for the tight end. It also gives Orton somewhere to go when he panics.

    Well strange thing is that DT is an unproven youngster who needs work but has the potential to be a STAR!!

    Don't be surprised if he rides the pine all season!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I would keep Lloyd and lock him up for another contract.Decker looks to be our #2 receiver.Willis would go to #3,and i would make Eron Riley #4 at this point.Royal would be out next season,and slowly bring DT into the mix.

    It'll be interesting when they come back, because im not sure this offense has any 4-5 wide sets. If we do I have yet to see it, or notice it. But WR is the strength of our team, so we better use it.

    agreed..the emergence of decker just allows DT to take his time getting healthy. He can be a #1 guy if he can ever play a full season. Royal should return soon and when he does I think he will find his home in the slot. WR is definitely a bright spot on this team

    I don't discount his ability to produce when on the field. It's only that he's spent most of his time in the training room, and until proven otherwise, I don't really consider him an integral part of the WR position group. I sincerely hope he gets healthy and dominates for the next 10-12 years.

    I had such high hopes that there would be a Tebow to Thomas connection happening in Denver for a long time. That flame of hope is reduced to flickering at the moment.

    ER, when healthy, is a good to very good receiver. Problem is, he is with the 2nd coaching staff & the same QB that HAS NO IDEA how to get him the ball. Put him on New England or back w/ Shanny & his production goes way up.

    Lloyd - Love his on field production. Although I have my concerns whether or not he actually cares about winning the games.

    DT - I don't even know who this guy is. He's had a cup of coffee on the field & that's about it.

    yup, and i respect that move (even though Al himself is a joke).

    i don't thing we should go this far, but let it be known that you're listening to offers..

    untouchable players (our young playmakers/veteran broncos)
    Champ Bailey
    Elvis Dumervil
    Von Miller
    Ryan Clady
    Kyle Orton (haha jk)
    Eric Decker
    Probably Rahim Moore and Orlando Franklin, since they were picked high and are starting.

    I don't like Decker at #1, not because I don't think he's good enough for it, but because it leaves us with a big hole at #2. Royal is way too inconsistent, Willis is very unknown, and DT has insane injury problems and is also unknown.

    That would force our hand into spending a draft pick on the WR group, when there is no need to at all, and isn't guaranteed. We have a solution right here on the roster, lets not screw it up. Lloyd is a good WR, works great within the offense when paired with Decker. Tebow's strength at QB at this point is the deep ball, Lloyd is a beast at the deep ball, keep this thing going, keep Lloyd. He's not going to be THAT expensive. He won't find mega millions on the FA market because he's not an all around great WR, I think we can keep him here for 25 mill over 4-5 years, that's not a bad deal for us at all.

    Lloyd, Decker, Royal, Decker. That works great for us... lets just keep it and stop wasting draft picks when we don't even need to do it.
    if they could get lloyd at 5-6 mill a year then thats fine. but i think he will be gone to the highest bidder no home town discount. i dont blame him and i aint mad at him but i feel thats what he is about. but when thomas comes back that will determine lloyds fate as a bronco. thomas was a deep threat in college and i believe was drafted to compliment tebows strengths. if thomas still has it then i cant see the broncos spending money on lloyd as tight as they are.

    Decker- Keeps his starting job through next year. He has everything you look for in a football player.

    Demaryius- If he comes back and shows strong flashes that he can be a starter/number one receiver, than he'll be given his shot start next year.

    Lloyd- If Demaryius comes back strong and Lloyd's mouth keeps running, he can run out the door (probably to St. Louis to be with good ol' Josh)

    Royal- possibly resigned, but Washington is where I think he will be. The system he flourished in, they don't have many good receivers, and he'd be back with Shanahan.

    Willis- Back next year, playing a similar role (substitution package receiver, special teams guy)

    I would guess that Decker and Demaryius start next year, and for the remainder of the season I think Decker and Lloyd will start, with Royal/Demaryius fighting for playing time.
