    Clearly that's Shanahan's opinion anyway! If he thought either Mauch or Van Pelt were going to be even an acceptable #2 QB, why sign another project?

    So the Broncos future isn't tied to any of these guys. Jake has a few good years left in him, and now is not the time to start grooming a replacement -- in the opinion of Shanahan of course.

    Instead, look to Shanahan to put one of the "development" QBs on the development squad and cut 2.

    Since Kanell just agreed to a pay cut, he'll probably stay and be the backup QB on the active roster and Shanahan will keep his fingers crossed that he never has to use him.

    I think you are drawing conclusions a little prematurely on Matt Mauck.....he certainy could become a legit backup QB.....the NFL has many QB's that fit his general mould that become good backups....not the least of which was Gary Kubiak...

    Cut the kid some slack....he has ONE freakin' year under his belt; who knows what he will become...

So if that is your future...well...great...good luck with that...

    Charlie didnt have very good arm strength to begin with. he is more of an accurate passer.



    I think Charlie will be fine. maybe its the opposite of what you said......

    If i was the only one to see Tim Couch suit up for a Pre-season game for the Packers, let me be able to tell you that he couldn't throw anything. All his throws were underthrown and inaccurate. and as we all know he didn't even make it on the depth chart, let alone the practice squad. I'm not a big fan of Kanell either but Couch is not the answer.

    is Jeff Blake still available too?

    What exactly was so bad about Couch? I never saw him play, his stats aren't good, but they're about what i'd expect from a browns QB with that supporting cast and coaching. Was his arm just straight up bad? Or did he suck at being a leader?

    Couch just sucks!

    I don't see any reason to stress over Couch possibly being invited to camp. It in no way is equivalent to him making the team. There were quite a few people on this board two years ago who felt the exact same way about Kanell.

    Browns fan here. You guys got it all wrong. The browns aren't the broncos practice squad. I believe the broncos are the browns dumpster. We're just dropping off all of our trash.
    Welcome to the boards!

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Browns organization for opening their doors to our pillaging and plundering. Shanny's latest comments on Warren were sparkling. League-wide consensus is that Courtney Brown is a beast when healthy, and he is nearly recovered and completely healthy for the first time in years. Because we do not have the sleazy set up, as the Browns do, we can afford to let our guys heal.

    Ekuban got eight sacks in 10 games last year, playing on a bum leg and with virtually one arm. You lost a lot when you tossed him out. And Myers is an asset to any organization. You must admit that or go learn something about football.

    What did you get from all this? A 4th round draft choice and a RB who could not even crack the rotation (he was a FB) until Anderson, Bell, and Griffin all went down with injuries.

    So I am so grateful that the Browns allowed us to go dumpster diving there.

    Hey! You got any draft choices left? I think we can get Jason Baker back to work out something with you . . . .

    Cleveland is cursed, and if the D-Lineman we brought in kick butt that we would be the stamp of approval!

    It'll go down into history as either a stroke of genius or a point of humor.
    Super Bowls or not, this may be Shanny's legacy, one way or another.

    I'm not a big fan of DeBerg's but check out this eulogy to his career:
    Yes, bad example. He did go color-blind (in terms of interceptions) in the twighlight of his career, but he managed some good things here, too. Thanks for pointing that out.
