I have been an avid Broncos fan for over 15 years. I've worshiped the likes of Elway, Shanahan, Shannon Sharpe, Ed McCaffery, Terrell Davis, Rod Smith...the list could seriously go on and on (Yes, most of those were players in the '90s; I'm only 25, lol).
However, dealing with Josh McDaniels is getting a bit trying. I loved the beginning of the season last year for the Broncos with our 6-0 start but after that the wheels fell off the bandwagon.
I used to be open to trading Champ Bailey if we could acquire a young proven player and a high pick, but now that's out of the question. Without Bailey, our core of true blue Denver Broncos superstars is gone.
In two seasons, McDaniels has shipped arguably our two most talented players out of town. The two most valuable commodities we had are now two first-round picks and two second-round picks.
Heading into this draft, McDaniels has a lot of Broncos fans he needs to try to win back. Marshall may have been a douche, but he showed up on Sunday when it mattered and balled.
The Broncos now have serious needs for play-makers on both sides of the ball and after last year's draft McDaniels need to hit a home run. Neither Ayers or Smith did much in their rookie season and Richard Quinn looks like a fifth round pick.
Let's look at five trades that could make the Broncos a better team next season. Rookies are nice, but if you can get a proven NFL player for a good price, DO IT.
