    Im growing impatient waiting for the draft and the offseason moves

        Give one single good reason to spend a boatload of money on Freeney ? He's a one trick pony with a small frame, it was an awesome trick but the league has figured that spin move out. He's a liability in run support, countless times this season teams has converted 3rd and long against the Colts by running straight at him.

        I'm holding my breath waiting for a single sensible answer to this question

          Freeney is getting Franchise tagged, which means the Colts are entitled to up to 2 first round picks in compensation.

            If we could just pick one of the 3 I say Jared Allen hands down! He is playing amazing right now and he played for Idaho State. That really isn't important except that most Idahoans like the Broncos and seahawks. So there is a good chance he would like to play for the Broncos. I really feel the 3 positions we need the most help at are DE, CB, and HB. If we got a sack specialist it would improve our secondary tremendously! We need more of a power back that can hit the cutback lanes. I like Mike and he runs hard but he just is a little small to be truly effective in our running system. and Tatum,,, well I like his speed but he is tareable inside the tackles. He takes forever to hit tho hole. The only time he is good is when he can get outside and use his speed.

              Would you trade Ashley Lelie and George Foster for Freeney?

              I would!

              Think about where the Broncos have been/always will be picking.

              Think about Shanahan's track record with the draft.

              I'm not saying the Broncos should.....I'm just saying it's not such a bad idea!

              The Broncos have got to do something! Despite what all the Guard/Safety fans say.....The Broncos main need is the D-line.


              Btw Lord Helmet, as far as him being a one trick pony.....That is the one trick the Broncos need most! He's an elite player, quit lieing to yourself!

                As I posted earlier, it seems to me that the league has figured that spin move out. Still waiting for a good reason that we should get him, in the unlikely event June gets tagged over Freeney

                  I read these boards a ton, don't post much at all. Of the choices given to me Jared Allen is who I picked.

                  as someone mentioned earlier the league knows how to contain Dwight Freeney. He's had a subpar year, not good for him in a contract year. Colts will probably slap the Franchise tag on him and thats that.

                  Adalius Thomas of the Ravens is a Linebacker case closed next!

                  Which leaves Jared Allen an RFA. Y'all honestly think the Chiefs will let Allen slip away to the Broncos? Not a chance. I'm willing to bet that the Chiefs will not only offer more than anything Denver proposes, but they also throw in a subscription to ESPN The Magazine and even let him keep the lil MP3 player


                  IMHO Broncos need to go after a DT in FA or as a high draft pick. Not a Defensive End. Need that guy who can stuff the run and take up some blockers.

                  Free Agent DT's that arent pipe dreams

                  Vonnie Holliday UFA Miami
                  Robaire Smith UFA Tennessee
                  Hollis Thomas UFA New Orleans

                  Possible 1st Round DT Draft Picks I'd be happy with

                  Amobe Okoye Louisville DT
                  Quinn Pitcock Ohio State DT
                  DeMarcus Tyler NCSU DT

                  IF DT is satisfied through FA then my thoughts on where Denver needs to go in first round.


                  Michael Griffin S Texas - Great compliment and successor to Lynch
                  Levi Brown OT PSU - Need a mammoth to protect Cutler's blindside
                  Michael Bush RB Louisville - McGahee anyone? Woulda been top 5 if not injured.

                    Very much agree with almost everything posted here, I have an addition for the FA DT list: Terdell Sands from Oakland, the guy is worth a look based on size alone.

                      I've been trying to find out more about the "Big Terd" from Oakland, what I can tell you is that the Raiders fans sound pretty desperate about getting him re-signed. They're raving about how he's a pro bowl caliber player and widely recognized as one of the strongest players in the league, not the most agile but dominant at stuffing runners and very good at getting his arms up to deflect passes on passing downs.

                      Definitely appears to be worth a look

                        Substitute Lang if you prefer, though he's got more sacks than Ekuban (but not more tackles; no one on our line has more tackles than Ekuban. ) Otherwise you're talking about signing a FA to be a backup, and that seems like a waste of cap space to me. You are, of course, always entitled to your own opinion with or without my consent, and I'll never question that; sorry if you felt like I was calling you out or something, I just get a little sensitive 'cos folks are always bashing ends that IMHO are pretty good.

                          The more I hear about Okoye...

                          the more I wish I cared about college ball. Is he a realistic possibility? 'Cos, I gotta say (again... ) 19. Think about that. 19, and already 298 and a top prospect.

                          1) He's smart, or he wouldn't be a 19 year old senior.

                          2) He's a cheeseburger shy of 300, and I doubt seriously he's done growing.

                          3) He'll be 20 his rookie year. If he plays 'til he's 35 someone will have him for fifteen years. If he plays as long as Jim Marshall he'll be 38 when he retires. As a very sharp and big DT who can probably tell you all the best hotels in Honolulu, 'cos he's stayed at most of them. And maybe has a few Super Bowl Rings. Since we need a (couple) DTs I'd love to see him get 'em here....

                            I have nothing against our ends, would I like to see a worldclass end take over ? Of course. Do I believe that will happen ? Certainly not. But its all good, hatchet is officially buried

                              Miami will be having money problems this off year and Holliday SHOULD be available too! As well, I could easily be happy if Denver drafted Brown - they need another OT as all of the other experiments (Pears, Foster, Meadows) have failed.
