    2007 Scapegoat

    As Bronco fans we are obligated to place the brunt of the blame for all the team’s problems on a select group of players. Past scapegoats include Quentin Griffin, Ashley Lelie, Al Wilson, Trevor Pryce (even though everybody wants him back now), Larry Coyer (guilty), and the person whose name we won’t speak.

    So, who are the scapegoats for 2007? It looks like DJ Williams and Brandon Marshall are shaping up to be some of the top candidates. Darkhorses include Dre’ Bly, Daniel Graham, Nick Ferguson, and potentially Jarvis Moss.

    What do you all think? Who will the scapegoats be this year?

    Remember, we’re only always one player away from going to the Super Bowl.

    I voted "other" though I could see DJ being a big possibility, I think he will get a free pass this year. In my mind it will be Ian Gold if he doesn't have a "pro bowl year"--whatever that means.

    Otherwise I think Travis Henry. He is injury prone--that's his big knock. I think if he gets hurt and doesn't get 1500 yards then we'll see him be the scape goat.

    Come on now, you're being too logical. First regular season game we lose, the board will explode and someone will have to go. Happens every year.

    Trust me, it wasn't just one game. That was just the best example I could find.

    From his game at Indy (when everyone came with the Barry Sanders comparisons) to his games in 2004 (when he didn't play so well) he became a really polarizing figure on this board. By the time it was all said and done, 'Q' was becoming a bad word.

    my votes bly

    i think he will get a ton of balls thown his way and if we are talking about expectation (us fans) are going to expect him to be outstanding. the 1st time (heaven forbid) he gets burned for a big play and we lose the game i think the fans will cry bloody murder on him.

    i dont look at the game this way but i just think he will become the biggest star or biggest bust on this team. this teams expectation towards the passing game shut down capabilities they have a ton of pressure on them to make it happen on the field. champ is ready, as we have seen before, but will bly step up to the plate as well.....

    we shall all see soon enough

    I'm going to echo CSU Stat's post. (what's up scuba buddy?)

    I voted other to include the line play on both sides of the ball.

    If I count to 5 or six missippi while opposing QB's survey the field again this year, I'm going to pull an Elvis on my TV.

    Jim Bates can coach defense. He's proven that with a number of teams, but he won't be able to turn water into wine.

    If a young Cutler has to run for his life in every passing situation or we show no consistancy in the running game, we won't be winning many games against an outstanding AFC.

    Just watch it'll be Dre' Bly...he'll give up some big yardage, and cause some interference calls that will get all the bandwagon fans riled up.

    My prediction for a "Dre' Bly's gotta go" thread? Week 6.


    DJ will be given a break because he's been home grown
    Rest in Peace, Darrent and Damien. You will be forever in our thoughts
