    Finally! Maybe we can put looking for an Elway replacement to rest.

    Any team that rids itself of a Brandon Marshal and picks up a Tim Tebow is heading in the right direction :deal


    Here's to hoping they let Quinn and Tebow duke it out for starting honors and trade Orton for a new popcorn machine for the press box.

    Al Davis is fuming.

    He doesn't look like the the biggest raving lunatic in the NFL...

































    Yet. It IS only the first round.:lol3

    You think Elway was still running a 4.6 during his Super Bowl runs? :lol3

    I really want to believe that McD is a unproven genius and despite all of the naysayers Tebow will be brilliant. I really want to believe... But much like Santa Claus I just can't bring my self to believe.


    Maybe by Christmas I'll be proven wrong.

    He's got a Heisman Trophy and National Championship already in the bag. He's got the humility to realize that he needed to change his game to compete at the next level. With his work ethic, I believe he'll make it in the NFL.

    He's not being asked to resurrect a floundering franchise (Rams) and he's not being asked to come in and start right away (Bradford). I like his chances.

    +1

    And besides, many teams have proven you don't need an absolute superstar QB to make it to the Super Bowl. In the past 6 years, here's some names that have started at QB in the Super Bowl

    Jake Delhomme
    Matt Hasselback
    Rex Grossman
    and a 37 year old Kurt Warner

    And personally, I havent seen Ben Roeshtlisberger do anything on the field Tim Tebow couldn't do and a whole lot of things off the field that Tim Tebow wouldn't do.

    I'd add Troy Aikman to that list :nod

    ... and Denver also picked up Brady Quinn. With these three: Orton, Quinn, Tebow, Denver has upgraded its QB situation from last season. IMHO, that is what they needed to do. The McDaniels/Cutler dust-up left us in a position where we got what we got as opposed to thinking about it. We are now better off :deal

    Nah, I'm good with that. :lol3

    The more I listen to Kiper the more I want McD to succeed. Had to switch to NFL network. Has anyone ever done a retro-grade analysis of Kiper's picks? I wonder how good he really is at picking NFL talent.

    Denver now working on the O line. :clap Always a good thing.

    Intelligence and character ARE important to McD... I just hope they have as much football talent as they do those qualities.:thumb

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

    Yahoo Sports ranks the Bronco Draft #4 from the top... and amongst the worst. :dunno :loco

    Now I've been happy lately
    Thinking about the good things to come
    And I believe it could be
    Something good has begun
    I've been smiling lately
    Dreaming about the world as one
    And I believe it could be
    Something good's bound to come

    For out on the edge of darkness
    There runs the peace train
    Peace train take this country
    Come take me home again

    Peace train sounding louder
    Ride on the peace train
    Hoo-ah-eeh-ah-hoo-ah
    Come on the peace train
    Peace train's a holy roller
    Everyone jump upon the peace train
    Hoo-ah-eeh-ah-hoo-ah
    This is the peace train

    Get your bags together
    Come bring your good friends too
    Because it's getting nearer
    Soon it will be with you
    Come and join the living
    It's not so far from you
    And it's getting nearer
    Soon it will all be true

    Peace train sounding louder
    Ride on the peace train
    Hoo-ah-eeh-ah-hoo-ah
    Come on the peace train

    I've been crying lately
    Thinking about the world as it is
    Why must we go on hating?
    Why can't we live in bliss?

    For out on the edge of darkness
    There rides the peace train
    Peace train take this country
    Come take me home again

    Peace train sounding louder
    Ride on the peace train
    Hoo-ah-eeh-ah-hoo-ah
    Come on the peace train

    Come on, come on, come on the peace train...

    Worst Overall Drafts

    Denver Broncos: To have a truly weird draft, a team must begin with an inexplicable first-round reach. Though Tim Tebow's intangibles are off the charts, there are far too many questions about his throwing mechanics in a long-term sense to spend a first-round pick on him, especially when you, as Denver did, trade multiple later picks to get him. Demaryius Thomas is a good deep receiver, but none of the three current Denver quarterbacks have good deep arms.

    Jacksonville Jaguars: Big first-round reach, Part 2, with Tyson Alualu taken with the 10th overall pick. The Jags have spent far too much draft currency on their front seven and still show inconclusive results, a trend that continues through this draft.

    Washington Redskins/New York Jets: Both teams made significant free agency moves, but unloaded talent on draft day that they may have been better off keeping. Both first-round picks Trent Williams to the Redskins; Kyle Wilson to the Jets are impressive, but the general sense in the NFL is that you build through the draft and augment through free agency. Both teams are expected to make playoff runs this season, and the ramifications will be interesting if they fall short.

    Chicago Bears: Okay, let's get this straight. The Bears trade pretty much everything, up to and including George Halas' first leather helmet, for quarterback Jay Cutler. They have needs all over their roster, despite a very active free agency plunge. And in their draft, which didn't start until the 75th overall pick, they spend one of their five picks on ... Central Michigan quarterback Dan LeFevour, who refused to throw at the combine because he wasn't familiar with the receivers. Ouch, guys.
