    Honestly, the trade needs 3 years before both sides can be fairly evaluated. Cutler needs time with his new team before he is too harshly judged and Denver's picks need time to developed before it is considered a failure for them.

    Worst Bronco trade: Trading Willie Brown. Yes he was a Bronco at one point. I wasn't alive obviously, but I still know that trade a HOF player is always bad.

    Best: Elway obviously

    Even: Portis-Bailey
    Portis + Bailey and a second (Tatum Bell) was about even.

    People usually fail to see that Bailey wanted out of Washington regardless that season. He was going to hold out or eventually be cut so the fact that we got some compensation for him was great. We later signed Shawn Springs in the offseason and he played top CB for a good while.

      Since a dynasty is made with in one draft. Those picks landed us Chris Samuels and LaVar Arrington. Ill redo that draft the same anyday. One of the best LTs in the game still today and Arrington was a beast until he became a headcase. Who could have seen his career ending the way it did?

      Could I have the lotto numbers as for tonight as well?


      Our best as of recently was either the Portis from Denver for Bailey and a 2nd or Moss from the Jets for Coles. Back in the day was Sonny from the Eagles but im not sure what we gave up on that one.

        no matter how Cutler turns out, the move to trade for a 25 year old pro bowl QB is always good :/

            That would still have to be Sid Luckman. If Cutler becomes a hall of famer, then maybe he is the best QB in Bears history.

              SO if he turns out to be a major bust and never win a game from Chicago its still a good trade because he is 25 and went to one pro bowl? Glad to know you have such low standards!

                  Thank you Buffalo. And thank you Chicago for snatching up Curtis Enis before we could pick him.

                    I'm not a Bears fan but using the "ended up drafting" hindsight, I've got to say that their best trade was...

                    1964 NFL Draft 2nd Round + 4th Round Picks in exchange for the Pittsburgh Steelers 1965 1st Round Selection

                    In hindsight that trade turned out to be...

                    Jim Kelly - WR - Notre Dame and Ben McGee - DT - Jackson State
                    for
                    Dick Butkus - LB - Illinois

                    The Bears picked Hall of Famers Dick Butkus and Gale Sayers back-to-back thanks to this trade.

                      Yeah it was an extremely even trade...one I was a little upset with at the time. I loved portis. To be fair, I was only like 14 haha

                      If the Broncos had used that pick on Bob Sanders instead, this would be a different conversation.

                        Elway

                        Best Bronco trade: Elway, duh.

                        Worst Bronco trade: Trading their 1980 #1, #2, and QB Craig Penrose to the Jets for QB Matt Robinson. Awful. QB Craig Morton wasn't the problem. He needed a better O-line and running game. If they would have taken OT Kent Hill out of Georgia Tech in 1979 instead of Kelvin Clark, and if they would have used those picks that they gave up for Robinson on RB Joe Cribbs and OT/OG Irv Pankey, they would have done a lot more to improve the team than one stiff QB could have done.

                            Sid Luckman > Jay Cutler. And that's not even close.

                                Not really sure about worst trades although trading up for Chad Jackson when Greg Jennings was still on the board kinda hurts
                                I agree with this, but the Wes Welker and Richard Seymour trades are right up there. A second rounder for Welker and a first rounder for a 30-year old injury prone DE (who, however, is an All-Pro and potential HoF candidate imo). I can't really think of any trade that's not draft related where I was like "ZOMG, WTF?!? Fire BB, now we'll never win again!" but when we passed on Sergio Kindle on multiple occasion in the first round I was almost at that point. That was, of course, before anybody knew about his knee..
