    Tuiasosopo at quarterback

    I've always like Tuiasososopo. So there's another Bronco fan out there who does too? I think he's in the wrong system at Oakland. What makes him effective is short passing, option to run.......exactly like what the West Coast is.

    But, I also like Van Pelt. Liked him at Colorado State. I only have a fan's opinion. But Plummer, Van Pelt, Tuiasososopo would work for me. However, not having him or having him won't be the reason for success or failure next year. Just be a nice back up.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Harrington in camp. Blaming him for the Lions ineptitude is like blaming Jake for the Cards; maybe it's Dierdorfs fault. Again, I'm making the neophytes mistake, but I don't want a QB drafted, 'cos I want a Pro Bowl starter TODAY, not five years from now. If we're gonna play that game, well, that's why we have BVP. Let's develop one rookie QB at a time, OK?

    Maybe we should talk to 'Frisco about a QB; they've only got FIVE on their roster.

    How about another new name to throw out there as a backup.

    I know he has been out of football for 2 years, He supposedly has been working out. He would come cheap and I think he could fit the system

    Tim Couch.

    The numbers are not that bad and in 2002 he led a mediocre Cleveland team to the playoffs and for the most part his offensive line stunk and had ok receivers and no running game to speak of.

    Bill Williamson, of the Denver Post, reports the Denver Broncos have contacted free agent QB Gus Frerotte (Dolphins), according to two NFL sources.

    Sounds like Frerotte




    Actually I would love to have Gus Frerotte as a backup to Jake...

    What would be wrong with that?

    Now lets not get our shorts all in a bunch over this. As in the past, we can expect at least 4 QB's in camp.

    Personally I do not expect Shannahan to go after any big names. I think they will try to get a solid journeyman QB at a reasonable salary. Jake seems to be able to avoid serious injury...God knows the opposing D's took their shots. And Shanny seems to see something in BVP that he likes. Although I am not sure what it is.

    Can't wait for camp.

    Yes I know it is off topic but that is about how often Mtn Man kind of gives Jake a compliment.

    He doesn't.

    It seems that the Broncos and everybody else is worried about every position except for a back-up QB. If Plummer should go down for any extended time period and all we have just BVP. . . . .WE ARE DONE! With that in mind, are there any good veterans available? I still stay Marques Tuiasosopo would be a good fit.

    I wonder why Jake has lost 3 playoff games in three years, and fans want heads to roll, and Paymeaton Manning has lost three playoff games in three years, and fans think he's the second coming???

    I'm with you on that I don't understand it either.

    Tui is terrible, I hope to never see him actually playing for anyone BUT the Raiders.

    What happened to Gus? Did I miss his name as a candidate? I think he would make a fine backup.

    I actually agree with Mtnman.... I think Harrington would be an excellent back-up for Jake. I actually think he was poorly handled in Detroit by Marriuchi. He'd start one week, then be benched the next, then start, then be benched, and so it would go. Thats got to be extremely hard on your confidence. If they would have just let the kid play through his errors, I believe he would have been much better at this point.

    This could actually be a good pick up if the price was right.

    He would have a working knowledge of the West Coast offense, having played under Mariuchi for several seasons.

    He's a scrambler type of player, which fits our offensive style.

    As far as any concerns about his past performance with the Lions, I would only ask....

    how many of you would have picked Plummer based on his AZ performance?

    Yet, St. Jake has had better performance (though he still has room to get better) since coming to the Broncos.

    What's to say that Joey couldn't have the same success?

    Plus, he's younger than Frerotte and hasn't had to miss any games due to head butting the stands.

    Mtn Man I agree with you. Harrington in the right system would be a great pickup.
    People say no because he was terrible in Det, so was Jake in Arizona.

    I am not saying replace Jake with Harrigton, but he would be a good backup.
