Cher, the trouble with Denver is all about Cap Space and not having any. They feel their team is in good position and could actually do without a first rounder this year. I'd love to see a trade down a few spots to either 4 or 6 and with this year's 2nd and the extra first for next we'd get in the trade, pick up Denver's 2 firsts this year.

You guys are SLOWLY moving me off the draft Leinart bandwagon, but I still think he wouldn't be a bad pickup for the future.

Please no comparisons between Elway and Leinart.

I still say take Cutler.

with our history and being the 2nd worst this year I would bet Denver would trade one of their firsts for our 2007 1st rounder. do it loomey baby.

don't count NYJ from still moving up 2 spots to get who they want. if abraham departs super mario might be their goal. let's say we get just their 2nd rd this year and do the above denver move...

...........PLAN A.....................................PLAN B
#04- d'brick OT................................ hawk LB
#22- willaims or cromartie CB...........winston OT
#34- carpenter or ryans LB...............youboty or joseph CB
#35- wroten DT................................wroten DT

I think this is a pickup that could be good, and could be worthless. I think that if Simmons can stay healthy, which it seems he's had some trouble doing, then he will be a very good upgrade over our current LBs. If he stays healthy, he has shown that he's a guy who's going to get 100+ tackles every year. The key however, like it is now with our two biggest addition thus far in Brees and Bennett, is that these guys can be GREAT additions if they stay healthy. So here's to Anthony Simmons' health.

And LKelley, I like both of those plans (except for the CBs being taken so high), but come on homeslice, you know we still need a center right? And Mangold will be there so.....

" Simmons, a former first-round pick, missed last season because of a serious wrist problem. He's considered one of the fastest linebackers in the game."
- From ESPNInsider

That sounds pretty good to me. I am really pleased with the efforts of our front office.

Y do you say that? he should be back to 100% by june, and he is better then what he had or have at the moment. id much rather take a chance on a guy who is coming off an injury then brooks, who is just terrible all the time
