There is SO much heavy in my life right now. It's been a hard start to a new year.....so today I want to write about something TOTALLY brainless. I want to write about football...more specifically my beloved Broncos! I think the future is bright...IF we make good decisions. The 1st good decision was bringing Elway into the front office. This is already showing rewards. Then we got a coach. I am not sure if I think Fox was the BEST choice, but I think he is good, and will bring us some fire, defensive spark and integrity. Now......the next few months are key!
i think we could turn it around quickly. We have the coach in place. I believe that we have a QB who is raw, yet is a winner and WILL win. We have some great draft picks if we choose wisely, and add a few quality free agents...my friends we are looking at winning ways again!
Here are scenarios I would love: Tebow starts from the beginning and continually improves. We have the 2nd pick overall...I say none of this trading crap and use that sucker for a defensive stud! We have 2 second round picks! If we trade Kyle Orton we can get another 2nd round pick. We also already have 1 third round pick, 1 in the 6th and 7th also! that's a LOT of potential. I wouldn't even mind trading the oh so fragile Moreno for a 2nd round pick either!
Then we define priorities. That's easy....DEFENSE! We need a stud lineman to complement a healthy Elvis Dumervil. We need a stud linebacker to stop that hole in our run defense. We could use a cornerback and safety as well (though the talk of moving Chamo to safety has much promise I believe, and Syd'Quan Thompson and Parrish Cox have potential). With the 2bd pick we either take Da'Quan Powers or Nick Fairley...both studs and game changers. Second round we should get a safety (Deunta Williams?) Use the other for a quality lineman and corner. Many will be available. In the 3rd round get us a nose tackle! It's been YEARS since we had one with any presence.
We have several players we could lose in free agency: Marcus Thomas, Kevin Vickerson, Ryan McBean, Wesley Woodyard ad Champ Bailey. If I had a say I would say goodbye ot all but 2: Champ is a legend and deserves to stay and finish strong here, and Woodyard deserves to stay (he's a solid back up and special teams guy). When we get Elvis back...thats a HUGE boost. then I say look for some free agnet defensive vets to being along. Maybe a Richard Seymour, or Dhani Jones. What a botu some free agent O line fellas? Bring Ben Hamilton back? At wide receiver we have a great group of poayers, but I think we don't have a great tight end...especially not for catching passes. Bo Scaife is available....... :)
Keep Quinn as tebow's back up and sign a vet QB t aid Tebow's development like a Mark Brunell or Marc Bulger. DeAngelo Williams is a free agent and if healthy, he has a relationship with Fox...I love the guy...get him!
Well....I imagine NONE of this will happen...but writing it was therapy today. Let me know if any of you care at all :)
