  1. Let the Offseason Begin

    I really hate when that happens! Something you can never "unsee".
  2. Let the Offseason Begin

    We have to have somebody there.
  3. Let the Offseason Begin

    The thought process still doesn't change. It's easier to cover RT deficiencies than any other OL spot. A RT that can play on the left is a luxury and a great one. Titans are a great example. If James is that guy I'll be pleased. His size is about right.
  4. Let the Offseason Begin

    Change that to LT and you're correct. Traditional school of thought as far as OL Athleticism needed is LT, Center, RG, LG, RT in that order. If James can be our swing LT if Bolles goes down thats a help.
  5. Let the Offseason Begin

    Maybe Bradbury or McCoy in the 2nd. We really need a center.
  6. Let the Offseason Begin

    So, thats a lot of my issue with Paradis gone. McGovern is a poor replacement but a pretty good OG. Pretty sure Sam's never played center and probably isn't quick enough. Whats Plan B?
  7. Let the Offseason Begin

    Not really. It took a broken ankle to get him out of the lineup.
  8. Let the Offseason Begin

    Probably the stupidest move Elway has made in a while. Jettison a great center who never missed a game until he broke his ankle and replace him with a middling OT that's missed 18 games in his 5 year career. We'd have been better off re-signing Turner and Paradis.
  9. Let the Offseason Begin

    Something Elway rarely does and it cost us dearly. Von, DT are prime examples. It really needs to be done in the last year of a rookie deal. If they won't extend then trade them ala BB.
  10. Let the Offseason Begin

    Doesn't he have a problem staying on the field. Maybe injury bug?
  11. Let the Offseason Begin

    If not Amos then Collins. Either one would be a great addition.
  12. Trading the 10th Pick

    Thats a priceless analogy! On the money too.
  13. Random Thoughts

    Well, they have to do something. I understand the safety reasons for eliminating the running start but the unintended consequence, all but eliminating the onside kick, is a drastic change to the game. One I really dislike.
  14. Trading the 10th Pick

    Wouldn't mind that, just keep away from Ford. He looks to me like this years OL bust. Marginal speed and quickness at best and in the day and age of smaller faster DT's he'll be a tremendous liability. Any IOL over about 310 or OT above 320 is a concern IMO and most fail at the next level. There isn't a freak like Nelson in this draft. Just more Chance Warmacks.
  15. Let the Offseason Begin

    Yeah, Morse would be fine if he could stay on the field. You need an Ironman at center, not a guy that misses 14 games in two seasons.
  16. Let the Offseason Begin

    I think Spotrac's about as good as it gets.
  17. Let the Offseason Begin

    He had the enforcer part of the game down, no doubt. He was just lacking in so many other areas.
  18. Let the Offseason Begin

    At some point we have to pony up some cash to maintain a decent OL, not just grab the FA of the moment for a one year contract. At $17M per year for the 9 guys we have under contract we're drastically undercommited to the OL. Just over half the league average is what we spend and only two teams spend less. If not Paradis then who? The reality is that OL salaries are catching up to the skill positions, (about time IMO).
  19. Let the Offseason Begin

    Not even in the same discussion as those I mentioned. 89-94 we lined up both Atwater and Smith as our Safety Tandem. That was pretty awesome. We haven't had safety play near that level since.
  20. Let the Offseason Begin

    it drives me nuts too.
  21. Let the Offseason Begin

    USC had to have the best safety duo in history with Lott and Smith the starting tandem.
  22. Let the Offseason Begin

    I'm getting a chuckle out of this, guess it's an age thing. For me he's not in the top 5. Denver has had some amazing safeties starting with Goose Gonsulin, then Billy Thompson, Dennis Smith and finally Atwater. Steve Foley was quite a ballhawk back there too. East Coast bias was really strong back then and Denver players seldom got recognition. Toss in Lynch and Dawkins and it's a pretty impressive list. For what it's worth, IMO Dennis Smith is the best Denver safety ever. Unfortunatey the two safeties drafted before him were Ronnie Lott and Kenny Easley, two of the best to ever play the position. Thats where all the awards went.
  23. Let the Offseason Begin

    If I were Elway that would be my first priority. That gives us Paradis, Bolles and McGovern as solid starters, with Turner as a quality backup, possible starter. Hopefully Sam Jones and Wilkinson can step up, at least as quality backups. We could really use more talent, the draft being the preferential route.
  24. Which Non-QB would you draft at 10?

    No argument here, we need a TE.
  25. Which Non-QB would you draft at 10?

    I just can't see us at TE at 10. Elways got to see what he's got in Jake and Fumagali before he moves on.
