The Denver Post’s Anti-Moreno Stance

Monday, March 8th, 2010

This is a bunch of crap:

With Knowshon Moreno, in the eyes of many personnel excutives around the league, having worn down as the season wore on in 2009, Arrington’s signing means he could take some of that situational work in the backfield away from Moreno if the veteran’s right knee will hold up.

Knowshon Moreno Broncos

Bet against him at your peril.

You should re-word it Legwold to say, ” many personnel executives around the league–who don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground–having wore down as the season wore on.”

That’s beside the fact you can’t even spell executives correctly. Either that, or “excutives” is another word for hot dog vendors outside Jeff Fisher’s office at LP Field down there in Nashville, where they’re so behind the times they have wooden pinball tables.

What a bunch of absolute crap. Knowshon Moreno didn’t wear down, the interior of that line is what wore down and it’s what killed us time and time again last year.

I wonder who these personnel executives are, eh? Eric Manginus’s personnel executive? Maybe the executive for that woodchuck looking–best buddy of Shanahan–Jeff Fisher, eh?

Maybe Josh McDaniels loves Buckhalter and Arrington, but if he thinks either is the answer to our third down or short yardage woes that’s  a bunch of BS.

We need to revamp and solidify our interior offensive line, first and foremost. That’s the major problem with the running game.

But oh no, I suppose Knowshon Moreno ” couldn’t find the holes. ” What a bunch of nonsense that is.

Are these people actually watching these Bronco games?

I wonder if the “personnel executives” are the same ones that watched 5 minutes of Jay Huckdort Cutler’s tapes and advised the Bears to sign him in an instant.

The rest of the tapes, the rest of the season showed Huckdort getting picked off left and right, almost single-handedly losing the games getting picked the hell off in the fourth quarter. The obligatory fourth quarter Cutler pick. Getting picked at the worse possible times, jawing at his teammates like he’s something special and not looking right in the process. Failing to protect the ball time and time again. All this–with a supposedly great offense.

I don’t care about these stupid statistic mongers and their yards per carry BS, revamp the damn offensive line interior first, then it better be Moreno or some BIG back that we draft hitting the hole on third and short.

By the way, Moreno also catches brilliantly out of the backfield.

Mark my words, bookmark this you snake oil salesmen at the Post: Knowshon Moreno is the least of our worries.

He will be a 1300 yard back with 500 yards catching on a consistent basis– that’s if we field an offensive line interior worth a damn. He will be our best running back. That’s not hoping, that’s me seeing the requisite flashes.

You seen him out there on the sideline? He looks like a damn kid, he’s hella young and he’s got room to grow. He’s got moves, he’s showed flashes of greatness. He will put on a little more muscle over the next couple years and as long as he’s healthy he will be our best running back and a leader on top of that.

NFL Personnel Executive says: "Woody Paige is a genius."

“Wore down,”–what a load. Jerome Bettis or Marshall Faulk in his prime would “wear down” too if they were getting stopped by the opposing team’s defensive tackles behind the damn line of scrimmage. Oh actually, maybe that’s because he’s too slow. He’s too slow to get away from practically unblocked defensive tackles in the backfield.

I’ll tell you something else, it better have been a momentary lapse, but that Kuper does NOT impress me one bit. Getting PICKED UP and THROWN by a defensive lineman is unacceptable. I saw the tape, I seen the damn tape, that Olsen better damn well be in a position to start. We need help big time in the interior of that line, and I imagine we’ll fix it or we’re in trouble. Even though this is a passing league and it may be a pass-first offense, you need to run the ball when it counts. None of this get stuffed time and time again on third and inches, that was abysmal.

If J. J. Arrington is the so-called answer,  “good luck.”

You people are setting yourself up for failure bagging on Knowshon Moreno–but go right ahead.

Brandon Marshall’s Trade Value

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

If the Seahawks sign Marshall to an offer sheet and we get the 6th pick in the draft?

Excellent.

If we strike a deal for the 14th pick?

Excellent–even though some of you are bellyaching that we gave them that pick last year–don’t care one bit.

We get a second rounder this year and next year? Maybe throw in a player like that G Rob Sims or WR Deion Branch (who I mentioned would be intriguing back in January)

Excellent.

A second rounder this year and a player?

Excellent.

So there you have it folks, any one of those scenarios is a good one.

Take Marshall and give us something.


Oh, and P.S. Not one of those scenarios is a mistake.

Just a low-key meet and greet, eh?

http://twitter.com/ChrisEgan5 #Seahawk Fans, Brandon Marshall landed at the VMAC via sea plane with Pete Carroll and King-5 waiting for his arrival.

I dont know how your job interviews go, but I dont remember getting the sea plane treatment like Brandon Marshall, very smooth #Seahawks

Matt Hasselbeck also hanging out at the VMAC as Brandon Marshall take a tour of #Seahawk headquarters

Sounds like more to me, sounds like Brandon Marshall will be a Seahawk.

Just imagine if someone came in to the Broncos a while back and was met off the plane by John Elway and Mike Shanahan–they want Marshall. They’re downplaying it because of negotiations.

Can’t happen soon enough, either.

Broncos Sign CB Nathan Jones

Friday, March 5th, 2010

So we steal another defensive back (Hill, Goodman) from Miami, this Jones who is a good special teams player and nickel. Started all 16 games. Alphonso Smith is the only guy I’m not so high on from our draft last year but the jury’s still out on him. Started out good then tailed right off, while Ayers started out lame and got better as the season went on. In any event we got insurance with this Jones kid, we know he can play.

Brandon Marshall: Permanent Vacation in Seattle?

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Wouldn’t bother me one bit if we got either the sixth pick in the draft or the fourteenth.

Or even a second and a player.

I want the sixth pick. We don’t necessarily have to use it there, we are in perfect position there to either move up or trade down. If someone falls to third or fourth that they are very high on, they could move up. They could also move down and pilfer the large amount of late first and second round talent in this draft.

For all of those bemoaning “only a first” for Marshall, I’ve said it all along: Get what you can.

He’s a risk, a locker room poison and his attitude isn’t representative of the new Denver Broncos. Hopefully he soon becomes Seattle’s problem.

You think Julius Peppers signed on with Chicago for the “rich history and tradition?” Or their Pro Bowl quarterback?

Broncos Sign Ravens Justin Bannan to 5yr Deal

Friday, March 5th, 2010
Justin Bannan Denver Broncos

Justin Bannan

McDaniels knows how to pick them, and he knows valuable free agents that fly under the radar, this guy’s a gritty player.

Denver Post: The Broncos are bringing Justin Bannan home again. The former University of Colorado star and Baltimore Ravens’ defensive lineman reached an agreement in principal Friday with the Broncos on a five-year contract.

The monetary value was not yet available but it reflects that the Broncos are counting on Bannan to start. Although he has played both the 5-technique and nose tackle position in the 3-4 system, Bannan, 30, is expected to become the Broncos’ new starting nose tackle.

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Adam Schefter reports Brandon Marshall will visit the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday in hopes of working out a deal.

I love it, please give us one of your first round draft picks, thank you.

Seattle may just be the one to give us the Tylenol.

We’re Not Matching An Offer For Marshall

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

Fools, goobers, morons lend me your ears.

Let the voice of reality sink in.

The Broncos handed “the best wide receiver in football” a first round tender.

Now I see some of you people spinning this–as you spin out of control–I see some of you people saying we did this “so we can see his value and match the offer.”

What a joke.

Are you people for real? Like that Numby at the Post? Are you for real?

Do we have people in middle school writing some of these blogs and posting on forums? If so, that’s honestly excusable. In cases where they ain’t: that’s ridiculous.

Some of you people can’t see the writing on the wall–I seen it since before the 2009 season began.

We are NOT matching an offer for Brandon Marshall. We are NOT rewarding Marshall’s attitude and BS. Marshall will NOT be the face of this franchise for years to come.

Not because I don’t think so, not because I don’t want it to happen. It’s reality, plain and simple.

“Fair market value,” is a bunch of BS too, Marshall is a risk, he is a poison, forget about equal trade value.

He’s gone, get over it.

I believe the Jets might be the one to pull the trigger. They’re somewhat established over there and they need a possession style receiver to compliment Edwards. Marshall is the missing piece in their puzzle.

Seahawks? Well they got trade ammo, but bringing in a locker room cancer, bringing in a troublemaker with a brand new head coach? Good luck, if they go that route.

Marshall’s gone, we are not paying millions for his BS, we are not making him rich to sit in a game with playoff implications. We’re not making him rich to see if he can remain out of trouble, yet again.

You can replace Marshall, you can replace the production of a wide receiver, split his production between two players. You can’t replace Dumervil’s production, plus the fact that Dumervil is a professional–Marshall is not.

No way is this coach  going to reward Marshall for his BS, no way, no how. Not with what he’s trying to instill in these players, in this franchise. All the hugs in the world ain’t gonna smooth over the truth that Marshall is unprofessional, a locker room cancer, a risk to even stay on the field and slightly overrated.

Marshall is not the best wide receiver in football, he’s not dynamic enough. He is a great possession receiver and gets good yards after the catch, he’s a decent blocker too. He ain’t no Larry Fitzgerald game-breaker.

Let’s hope someone else thinks he is the best thing since sliced bread, and we’ll let someone else take the risk.
