Broncos' 2009 Draft

this is just brutal...a continuation of the black hole this once-great franchise has found itself in since the end of last season...

i think Moreno could be a good NFL back, but he was NOT the pick to make here...i dont know that he's all that much better than some of the RBs drafted after him...and let's not forget that out of the 15 RBs the Broncos had on the roster going into the draft, while i wouldnt pencil any of them in for a trip to Canton as anything besides a paying customer, they have some decent backs...Selvin Young and Peyton Hillis played well before getting hurt, and Shanahan was pretty high on Torain, who never got to do much because of injury...and living here in Eagles country, i've seen Buckhalter's entire career close up...the Birds were really high on him, but 2 season-ending knee injuries allowed Westbrook to become the man here...but when Buckhalter was put in the game to spell Westbrok, he played pretty well...my point being, with ALL the other holes on this team, both inherited by and created by mcdouchebag, RB was not a concern that early in the draft...

it's been well-documented how bad the Broncos' D is...as much as i love high-scoring, offensive football, defense wins championships (as we saw up-close-and-personal last year)...and when you pretty much have to rebuild everything outside of Champ Bailey and B-Dawk, you have to start with the front 7, especially the D-line...instead they went from the other direction (when they even bothered to address the defense, that is), drafting only 1 LB and NO D-linemen...mcdouchebag has had a bug up his ass about Scheffler since day one for whatever reason, so he'll be gone after this year, but Richard Quinn in the 2nd round?  a guy who had 12 catches in his college career?

and then trying to come up with his own Tom Brady or Matt "Career Benchwarmer" Cassell by drafting Brandstater in the 6th round?  even IF that guy gets to the point where he can compete against the likes of Kyle Orton or Chris Simms for a starting job, you're looking at 2-3 years out...do you REALLY want Orton or Simms as your starting QB for that long?

don't even get me started about getting a 2nd round pick this year for what most likely will be a top-10 (or possibly top-5) pick next year...i'm ready to put my fist through the wall over that one...seriously, WTF!?!?!?!?!!?!!!!  i think i saw that in an episdoe of Leave it to Beaver, where Eddie Haskell gave The Beaver a shiny new quarter for a raggedy old $10 bill....

mcdouchebag is big on his 'system', but honestly, i cant figure out what the hell it is...it just seems to me like he's pulling stuff out of his ass because he has no clue what he's doing...i mean, he does realize that you generally only have 2 RBs on the field in an offensive formation, and 4 DBs in a standard defensive formation, right?

you look at where this team was 4 months ago, and obviously the defense needed to be laid waste to with an H-bomb and completely rebuilt (with the exception of Champ)...as much as i love Shanny, i could see the side of the argument about why he should've gone...but consider the fact that with an AVERAGE defense last year, this team wins 11-12 games and the division...now, 4 months removed from the end of the season, the defense is only incrementally better (because let's face it, it couldn't have been much worse), and now the offense is completely trashed...and the worst part of it all is the fact that it's not a case of you know we'll suffer this year, but things will be better next year...i don't get that feeling at all...i feel like in mcdouchebag's attempt to turn our team into the Denver Patriots, we wound up with the Rocky Mountain Raiders...i just have 6 words for you all:

2010 Broncos' Head Coach Bill Cowher...
