I'll make this short and sweet, my Bronco Brethren, "You'll come out of this smelling like a ROSE!"
Let me see...A fifth-round draft pick and Jay Cutler (he of the pouty face and 17-20 overall regular-season record) for, get this...
The Bears' 2009 first-round draft pick.
The Bears' 2009 third-round draft pick.
The Bears' 2010 first-round draft pick.
And ALSO QB Kyle Orton, who won't immediately bring back memories of John Elway, but he won't remind the Orange Mane of Norris Weese, either.
HUGE sound of laughter coming from the Broncos' War Room.
You have GOT to be kidding me. This might turn out to be the Herschel Walker deal all over again. Orton's definitely serviceable, which will allow Denver to totally re-structure it's defense with all those draft picks the team now owns over the next two years.
What an incredible day for the Broncos. They've rid themselves of the biggest enigma since Ryan Leaf and Jeff George, and have been paid handsomely for the privilege. Funny thing is, as of this writing, Da Bears' Jerry Angelo is being hailed as a savior for bringing in the "Emperor Of Colorado."
Wait until the Bears' fans find out the emperor has no clothes...
Save some champagne for me, Bronc-Honks. I'll be there in a second to help you celebrate.
