On a related note, I think ppl need to chill the F out with the "no free agency". A good team is built through both the draft and free agency. Just because our incompetent front office has made terrible deals for free agents, doesn't mean that we shouldn't get any free agents now that we have what appears to be a competent FO.
I should know to check the names. Yeah Seymour that's it, that's the ticket!

Well, we will need to see how that's going to work out here with Shanahan. As I said, we need a balance of drafted rookies and free agents. The problem is that we're still haunted by terrible deals such as the trades for Lloyd and Duckett.

In that aspect, Allen has always been good about trades, rarely trading draft picks for other teams veterans.

Re: 2010 Free Agents

Peyton Hillis


At best a guy who can get over 1,000 yards rushing. At worst a replacement for Mike Sellers.

ummmmm... you can't fill every need with draft picks

nobody said that we're never going to sign a free agent again.. all of the top teams do it

We have every reason to expect a very large number of aging veterans to make up our 2010 roster.

While this is certainly not a way to build long-term success, it shouldnt "kill" us the way snyders spending sprees did in the past for atleast 2 reasons i can think of: 1) Bruce Allen, while having a thoroughly unimpressive draft history, is known for keeping his draft picks. he won't trade draft picks for old players. rather, he'll sign the best of the free agent class. 2) since 2010 will be uncapped, any contracts signed can be "front-loaded" to ensure the skins have plenty of room if/when a salary cap is reinstated.
If that's the case then I hope that we do it the NE way with the older vets.

You'd have to think that they'll re-sign him.. he wasn't too happy about going there to begin with though, so we'll see.

Re: 2010 Free Agents

If we do in fact switch to a base 3-4 defense, I think we have to hope to nab a guy like UFA NT Casey Hampton to anchor the defense. I just don't trust Haynesworth to play NT, especially since he missed 25% of the season due to injury and 20% of the snaps in the games in which he appeared. Besides, he's likely be more effective at DE than NT in a 3-4 scheme.

I also think we'll need another MLB. I don't see too many viable 3-4 MLBs available in free agency, but perhaps Brandon Spikes will fall to the top of the second.

So, my dream offseason would look something like this....

Trading the 4th pick for Denver's 1st (11th overall) and first 2nd rounder (45th overall).
Drafting OT Bruce Campbell with the 11th pick
Drafting ILB Brandon Spikes with the 37th pick
Drafting OT Jason Fox with the 45th pick
Acquiring UFA OG/C Ben Hamilton to compete with Casey Rabach and Randy Thomas
Acquiring UFA NT Casey Hampton to anchor the 3-4 defense

Looks like we signed a former Bronco Center. He is young and I guess Shanahan likes him. Kory Lichtensteiger

Definetely a good fit. Personally he was one of the guys I was hoping we would draft back in 2008. Hopefully Peyton Hillis is not to far away from coming here as well. Can't imagine that the Bronco's would keep him with Moreno and Buckhalter getting the majority of carries for Denver.

Hopefully the first of many o-line signings.
