      I don't think that this is a big loss at all. First off it is WAY to much money to play a one year wonder that only pass on running downs. 2nd...With Manning on this team the D is going to totally change. We are going to be able to take chances in the secondary and with our pass rush. Bunkley really doesn't fit that mold. But I dont think that the smart move is to take a DT in the first round. Bust rate is way to high with DT's I personally would take one later and focus on MLB or CB in the first round. Either that or take a WR is one drops to you

        Spartan, you hit it on the head with Manning....a smarter Orton. WOW I was trying to come up with some player to compare him to and thats it. If Manning wasn't smart and had hall of fame O-lines to play behind he would be out of the league

          Considering we only paid him 600K last year, it's a BIG difference.

          He grabbed the BIG money while he could. We had him last year, and KNEW what he was worth.

            You guys realize Bunkley only played 43% of snaps last year right?


            That's not a player worth $25m and $9m guaranteed. The only reason I can think of for his salary to be that high is that he'll be a player/coach this season.


            Like somebody else said, just because he was the best DT on our roster didn't make him a top DT. He got more money than Brandon Mebane got last year, who's a much better overall player.


            I know everyone loves to panic about the DT spot, but we were doing that last year too, and then we stole Bunkley from the Eagles for a 6th rounder. I'm not worried about it.

            If Fox & Del Rio know anything, it's how to build a defense. Let those guys handle it.

            And when we don't choose a DT in the 1st round, try and not panic then, either.

                Honestly, I'm glad he left.

                Yes, he was good, but I wouldn't have paid him that kind of money. He played less than half the snaps this year.

                      They should sign Abrayo Franklin and Pat Sims.

                        A super bowl victory is the only thing that matters in a season. So to show improvement you have to get closer than we were last year. So the AFCC game is a good answer if we only match what we did last year it is a failure. The Giants were 9-7 and won it all so record or first round bye mean nothing unless you win it all-

                        #87Birdman wrote it- adding Manning, the Broncos should be held to it, and certain posters think otherwise and we know who you are.....

                            Also, keep in mind that at this stage last year, we had no DTs to speak of and Bunkley wasn't even on our radar. His was a low-hype, unexpected signing that worked out pretty well on the cheap. Who's to say that EFX can't pull off a similar under-the-radar pickup for this season to fill this gap again?

                              Bunkley is good but not worth that much money. He was best DT we had it's bad loss but I expect us find another DT either in draft or from a trade.
