  • I really REALLY hope it is just a smokescreen. You just can't judge a QB after his rookie season - especially a season that included only 3 starts. He needs an opportunity to go through an offseason and show what he can do before we go and pass judgement.

    It comes down to the fact that we don't *know* what we have in him yet. We do know what we have for a defense, however, so that is where the picks should be spent.

    This years QB class is kinda weird anyways... I agree with whoever it was I read that said they would hate to be a team that needs a QB this year, because they all have gigantic question marks, I wouldn't bet my franchise on any of them.

    • Hey guys- check out this article I wrote for Bleacherreport.com
      Admittedly, I do think DeAngelo is a year too old for my liking, and may cost a pretty penny. Still, I think the premium we pay for him is great because
      1. We get a great player
      2. It takes carries away from Knowshon
      Check it out-

        • There seems to be some buzz that both Arizona and Washington have approached Denver about the #2 pick. Looks like both team wants Gabbert (expecting Carolina to take Newton).

          Good for us if true...

            first off, i feel terrible for carolina. they're going to take a quarterback who is clearly going to be a bust. i don't think i've ever been more certain about a #1 pick not panning out.

            second off, im sure every team in the top 5 has gotten several calls, it's just a matter of who chooses to release that to the press.

            in denver's case, telling the press that they are getting calls would suggest that like you said, a team is making a move for a quarterback.

            it would follow that if a team wanted a quarterback, they would need to leapfrog denver to #1. thus, by saying that they are getting calls, denver is actually increasing the chances to get their selection dareus, peterson, or miller at #2, guaranteed.

            or.. they could really want to trade down. i just dont like this speculation.

              It's really all there is at this time of year. Until we get to the eve of the draft (which is when we'll start getting some good info), everything that comes out is highly suspect.

              The nice thing about the speculation is that it's all good for Denver. Someone trades to #1 to grab a QB? Win - we get our guy on defense. Someone trades with us to grab a QB at #2? Win - we get the picks we need.

              • Hmm. Maybe Shanahan wants to package McNabb with a lower-round pick to move up for Denver's #2 pick.

                  i've been posting here for quite a while i like to think. and that. right there. ^^
                  may be the most... uninformed post i've ever read.

                  edit: i really hope you mean their second round pick and not their #2 pick in the first. because that would make you slightly less out of it.

                  • Well, it sounds like a bad deal for Denver, and it probably is, but Elway might be willing to do Shanahan a big favor, if you get my drift.

                    • I am actually now completely sick of reading articles, blogs and everything else about what we will do. I just want the next two weeks to hurry the **** up so we can select someone.

                      on a side note - how good are the Rockies?

                        Amazing! Although, Tulo's numbers worry me some. They're almost too good, as in steroids good. But yes, we'll be contending for a world series this year that's for sure (barring any major injuries).

                        Projected win total: 55+

                          It is sad but true that these sorts of things cant help but pop into your head. Just like any cyclist that wins a stage in the tour or any athlete that wins a gold at the olympics - must be drugs.

                              • Did anyone see the Elway/Xanders press conference that was streamed online earlier today?

                                It was actually pretty interesting and provided a clear picture of the draft process this year.

                                Of course, they were somewhat guarded about intentions... they spoke highly of all the major prospects. However, it seemed to me that Xanders relaxed a lot when the topic of Patrick Peterson came up and the way they talked about him was a little more personal... like there was a good connection there. Coincidentally, those comments were the only ones related to a top prospect that were *not* subsequently posted on the team's Twitter site. Btw, I don't really believe in coincidences.

                                Here's my prediction now - we're looking to trade down a few spots (Arizona?) to pick up PP. I'd like that result but it would be costly... costly for me, that is, as I'd definitely have to pick up a Peterson jersey.
