    Broncos still have some life after this with a VERY soft schedule.

    In the past this team has found success with bench players stepping in and making contributions. Glen Martinez was the last I can think of when our WR core got banged up back in 2008.
    I think you are massively underselling what Sanders brought to the table this year. We'll have to see if Hamilton is capable of stepping into his shoes.

      I haven't noticed any respect being given to the speed of Sanders by opposing defenses anyway. Regardless of what we have at wide out, no one respects the arm of Keenum because they know he can't attack all areas of the defense. Teams can play a soft cover 3 shell and play a safety down close to the line of scrimmage because of this, it speaks volumes actually to how good our offensive line is run blocking considering this.

        Sanders is a quality run blocker when he feels like it. Unfortunately, since Manning retired, Sanders' effort on run plays has been obviously lackluster. Hamilton shows a lot of effort on run plays, he is a frequent member of the escort party on lindsay's long runs.

        As far as the extra targets, I don't think there will be a big drop off from Sanders to him. The real issue is the QB, and that is why teams stack the box against us almost every play. They may have respected Sanders' speed but they dont respect Keenum's ability to make them pay, so I dont think anything will really change offensively.

          some times i wonder if we are wathing the same game. sanders has maded key blocks on some of the longer lindsey runes helping him explode. lets look last week the long touchdown. it was sanders from slot that allowed bolles to get into the flat and bulldoze a hole infront of him. sanders blocking this season has been alot better then below average. we have actually had 2 of the better blocking WR sense the DT trade

            The thing with ES is, he would catch the ball and take a huge hit. Seen it many times. When he first started with the Broncos, I thought he would never last being his size and the hits he would take. But he would also make circus catches when the team needed it the most. Sorry, but the Broncos are going to miss him. Maybe one of the rookies can standout, but replace ES....not going to happen.

              What would it cost this year to bring Dez in at this point or is his camp requiring a multi year deal?

              Please look at his on field positives. I get he's a garbage individual outside the lines but on the field he demands respect from opposition.

              Really wish Brandon Marshall was still available. One of the best blockers in the NFL for a WR. He could pop Lindsay loose on the edge for sure.

                Dez, really? He's barely one month removed from injuring his own achilles, requiring surgery, after he signed with the Saints and is on their IR.

                  As mentioned Bryant tore his achilles in his first or second practice with the Saints. I think you're also massively overvaluing him. There's a reason he was a free agent for so long, his play is no longer special. I remember hearing a scout (early this season) saying that he was always a guy who ran only 5 routes, and he no longer had the ability to gain separation on any of them.

                  Also with a team that's .500 and has a massive number of rookies, especially in the receiving core, you don't want to add a player that's going to be a selfish and bad influence to them and the team. The Broncos need to cultivate the 53 is bigger than 1, and the 53 against the world mentalities if they're going to actually make the playoffs.

                  And a great way to make up for lacklustre blocking by receivers is to have them run go routes, the corners have to respect that, if they don't you go play action and then hit the deep pass. That will back them off.

                    • Sanders maybe the straw that broke the camels back, Sunday was ugly for this offense. 65 total yards in a half.
