  • So for Bronco fans keeping score.

    We traded Jay Cutler for:

    Kyle Orton
    Robert Ayers (12th overall)
    Alphonso Smith (Traded Bears 1st next year to Seattle)
    Richard Quinn (Traded our 3rd round, and Bears 3rd round to acquire)

    I guess we'll see how it turns out...

      I read it was our 1st next year...my anger level changes greatly depending on which one it was.

      I like Smith and Ayers, but not at the cost. If Ayers can turn in to Trevor Price and Smith can turn in to Darrent Williams, it might not seem so bad. Hard to judge at this point.

      But Quinn is freakin crazy pick

        Sorry Broncos fans, but I though Chicago won the deal before, and now I really think they won the deal. I like smith, but he isn't worth that first rounder. Of course there is plenty of time to prove me wrong, but i really think Chicago got the better end of the deal... I think Ayers will be a bust, and Quinn made me say WTF.

          If it's the Broncos 1st rounder, that makes the trade even worse. Congratulations Seattle, you turned a 2nd round pick into an almost lock for the top 10 next year. And our consolation prize is a slow and short corner.

            As of now though, you are in the minority in thinking of Ayers as becoming a bust. I actually like Ayers and suggested him going to the Broncos at 18 prior to the draft. All three players were guys that McD and company were completely enamored of.

            Quinn on the other hand....I can not defend

            and CT, it was our pick

              There really is only one word to describe how the off season and draft have gone for the Broncos this offseason: despicable

                I'm gonna try to stay positive. I do like Orton, always have. I think Dawkins and Hill are solid additions to the secondary. The offense should still be quite a beast this year, with Marshall and Royal having another year under their belts.
                I liked Ayers and Moreno going in to the draft, they just got picked backwards, which doesn't make a difference. I like smith, but the price tag of our first this year is steep at this point. If he proves to be great, won't seem so bad.

                my rationalization

                  I've always been a optimist when it comes to the Broncos, but this off season and what has happened almost has me sick to my stomach.

                      Me too...from where I am sitting now I see my nice Cutler jersey hanging in the closet. I try not to think about it lol

                      I don't want stupid stuff McD did block out getting Dawkins (which is awesome) and getting 2 players I liked in Ayers and Moreno. Apparently that was the plan the whole time, as they were so quick to go up with there pick and not grab orakpo.

                      At least he had a plan and wasn't just grabbing people like I first thought lol

                        Roll with it. Better than going postal...

                        Actually, I'm starting to warm up to the Quinn pick. If the 2 TE + single back set ends up being one of our base formations, the negative buzz about the trade up will seem trivial. Our OL w/ Graham and Quinn blocking for Moreno could be pretty punishing... especially if Quinn turns out to be a reliable receiver (his limited catches at NC were due to scheme, apparently he caught the ball pretty well at the workouts).

                        Trading next year's first is the tough part. Obviously they valued Smith as a 1st round talent... but it could be a high price to pay in the end. McDaniels has pretty much staked everything on the team doing well this year. If the young kids contribute to a decent season, I think all will be forgiven. If we go 4-12, well, that's would be a very nasty situation for a certain rookie HC.

                          This is pretty much the most important thing to know...McD is cocky enough to stake his entire coaching career on making a decent team this year. I'll be impressed if he does.

                            A decent 1st round to be honest with Moreno and Ayers.
                            Horrible 2nd round due to what we gave up. I think they are solid players, but not worth throwing out there a 1st next year and 2 3rd rounders for Smith and Quinn.

                              So Cutler = Orton, Ayers, and Alphonso Smith?

                              And Knowshon Moreno?? Seriously?? I mean, I love him as a RB, but what was the point of all the FA RBs we picked up then? I think we have like 11 RBs on our depth chart...

                              This draft was horrible.

                              Projected win total: 55+
