    Do you all think plummer spreads the ball around enuff. It seems like he favors sharpe a little too much as the primary rec. instead of rod. If shannon retires where will he go next, carswell is good but i'd much rather see rod with the ball, i'd even consider letting Ed play a little at tight in some situations, he's not that big but he's an excellent blocker

I'm pretty hopeful for his future with the Broncos...think he could be the M-A-N.
        I agree.

          Drafting a qb in the latter rounds is not bad idea and there are plenty of qbs in this year draft that might fit into Denver'system. Jake is the answer, however he's already 27 years old, it will take at least 3 or 4 years to develope a guy who could challenge him, so that could work out very well for the Broncos. By then Jake will be 31 years of age so by then it could be time for him to retire. We can't bank on him making it 15 years.

            With the first round pick going toward a D back prob., does anyone think we might take a long shot on a phillip rivers or losman for the future. I like Jake but i just don't know if he's the corner stone we need.
            jake is definetly tha man & he will lead us back to the superbowl & win it all more than one time too, as far as phillip rivers i think he will go a little earlier & will turn out to be a good pickup for somebody but we don't need him, we are fine.

              Something else to look at is Jake's deal doesn't pay much his first two years, after two his salary increases a bunch, I figured the reason for that was shanny wanted a way out after seeing what he can do, or he planned on having another QB groomed at the end of the two years.

                shanny put that in his contract so he didnt have to pay big money upfront n end up getting burnt if it didnt work out like it did w/ griese......it was smart move n it looks like jake will b in denver 4 at least 4-5 more years he'll only get better IMO....we basically have the "BIG 3" in place as every team wants the QB RB n WR (if liele starts panning out) n there all young to....

                but rod still is very productive his stats went down when jake got hurt.....

                  I heard that generally speaking it takes about three years for a wide receiver to develope. Look at TO his first two or three seasons he really didn't do much now he is one better wide receivers in the league. Lelie imo, just needs to little more seasoning, and it would not hurt for him to improve his strength. Bigger corners have had success jamming him at the line of scrimage. Btw, I also like Madise, if he and Lelie continue getting better they just might make a very good tandem when Rod and Mac are both retired.
