How about the Aurora housewife who asked “Coach McDaniels, where is your pedigree, you seem more like a street mutt”. She went on to state that McDaniels said, “we do not draft players to be cut”. First player cut was 7th round OL Schuetler.
Not one 2009 drafted player makes an impact. All five first day players have done just OK. Only Moreno ‘looks’ good because he is force feed the ball, but the running offense is only rated at 14. All choices have been on the inactive list.
We must thank Coach McDaniels and Owner Bowlen for bringing in defensive head coach Mike Nolan because he brought Ron Fields with him. Nolan also wanted coaches Nunnley, Martindale, and Donatell. Nolan’s philosophy is to defend from the DB’s to the DL. “tight coverage, to give DL time to harass the QB”. This philosophy has worked well since they got FA’s Goodman, Dawkins, and Hill. But there is no nickel or dime player.
BUT the NE way or players have not worked in the West. A 5th for Smith who can not break the lineup. A 7th for Hochstein who coach plays over Hamilton or 4th rounder Olsen, but the offense is worse. And Jordan who is really a waste but coach plays over Hillis. And tackle Gorin who is on the inactive list each week. Cut Jack Williams and sign retired Ty Law who then gets hurt. OH wait, one NE player is worth the money Jabar Gaffney.
Yes I can see a list of players heading to Washington. Like Scheffler, Hillis, Larsen, Dumervil, Kuper, and Moss. OH ya Marshall for the money Snyder will put out.
So yes, Aurora housewife, you have a better eye then the pundits of the weekly Bronco news.
