Q is the real deal, keep saying he can't and I promise he will. He played on a Division I school and was dominate at a major college.
    Barry Sanders was actually 5'8" and 203 pounds during his playing days. Not that an inch and 10 pounds is a huge difference, but you never know. Plain and simple, there has only been one Barry Sanders in all the years of football and I truly believe that there will never be a running back with that kind of talent again. Griffin is NOT like Barry Sanders, he's more like Charlie Garner. Quick, shifty, like a jitterbug. Wake up people, we do not have the next coming of Barry Sanders on our team. We had a future hall of fame running back, but we tossed him aside instead of giving the money he deserved.

    because he's not a free agent. Any trade with Cincy will require us to restructure his contract to get it under the salary cap. Therefore, Cor"ME"y dillion would have to take a salary cut, and denver wouldn't want to pay him what he's getting on this current salary. We would have to offer him bonus money and incentives that would be easily reachable.

    Why do we want someone elses head case? Wasn't Gardener, Dalton, Carter, and Kennison enough? If were not happy with what we have, including a former rookie of the year, then we should draft a Running Back.

    I say we give him a contract like we gave Plummer--Shanny learned from mistakes like Griese at the QB position, why not at the RB position as well? We can have a tiered bonus so that everyone is happy, with an option to, if he's not performing, cut him & not give him any more of our money.

    I agree... Dillon would be a steal!! Any true Denver fan would take that trade in a heartbeat (Portis for Bailey & Dillon). Two pro-bowlers for one. And both players are young. I don't see why Denver hasn't pulled the trigger, but I sure would like to see Dillon here in Denver. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens this offseason.
    Bailey 25 is young, however, Dillion is 30. Thats the age when backs start to lose steps, and dillion has been ridden hard and is ready to be put away, wet preferably, to the pasture. Why pay a guy that is on the downside of his career the money he's gonna want?

    Don't give me that crap about wanting to go to a winner, cause most don't give a **** about that. They want the money, just ask berry about playing for a team that gave you a shot or going for money.

    I also think we could add Tatem Bell or J Jones in the third round or a kid like Michael Turner in the fourth round. These would all be far less expensive than Dillon. They all timed out in the 4.4 range and have better size than Griffin. Which may be necessary for the long haul.

    That is ridiculous. Quick ignoring the real issue here......


    Dillon is a malcontent with an attitude problem. Our track record with those types of players has not been good lately. See D Gardener and D Carter. We have got to get it and not waste time and money anymore on players that have bad attitudes.

    Look at where we might have been last year if we spent our money on a couple of good guys that could have contributed instead of throwing all that money at Gardener. If we have 3.5 mill to spend for next year, and 3.8 the next lets not waste it on Dillon. Lets grab someone that we know will not be a chemistry problem, and may actually contribute, and keep the second round pick.

    Look at what Miami had to trade for Boston yesterday. A conditional 6th round pick. Boston complained last year (just like Dillon) and put up better numbers than Dillon did in Bungul land. They both played on bad teams have similar money contracts for the next two years and both are worth almost nothing on the open market.

    Dillon won't get traded for a second rounder and I think the Raiders are crazy for even offering a 3rd rounder.

    Look at TO. With all his skill attitude took him down to a second rounder. You can't believe that Dillon is the athlete the TO is.

    Attitude and Chemistry count and I am tired of wasting money on morons that don't want to be out there. D Gard and D Carter hosed our salary cap scenario for years. It is not like malcontent a holes just majically turn around.

    The only way the Dillon makes any sense is if he restructures and almost the whole contract is dependant on performance. Then the price might be worth a conditional 6th rounder. We should learn from the trade that went down yesterday.

    I'd almost agree with you there, BUT Dillon *wants* to be a Bronco, has the ability to be a Bronco...I think that the reason the front office hasn't made the move yet is they're working on it...they want to give us mbers some time to argue about it, take sides on it, become enemies over it & give people plenty of time to bandwagon jump all over the place!

    Dillon wants to be a Bronco, I think he would do well here & I hope to see him here...Hey, it sure as hell beats the Raiders getting him.

    Unless he changes, I don't want him here.

    Everybody I talk to (I don't live in Denver) says that Portis for Dillion and Bailey would be an overwhelming trade victory for the Broncos.

    When asked about Portis for Bailey and a 2nd rounder the response is "ehh" *shrugs shoulders* " I wouldn't have done that".

    You put Sanders into the equation when you brought up Q's size. When Barry was playing he was the same size as Q is now. That's all the guy was saying.

    My point is that Corey Dillon is a PROVEN rb in the NFL and a superbowl contending team should have proven talent at the skill postitions, hence trading one of the 2nd rd picks for him would make sense.
