Demaryius Thomas...broken foot
Tim Tebow... Poor mechanics

Now I don't know yet how to judge the first round picks yet. But I can 
appreciate the direction. So go ahead Josh and let 'em hang.

Thomas is a great deep threat and a big target. But receivers usually 
take time to develop and with so few targets on a run happy team in 
college, how long will it take him? His confidence, skills and more 
importantly his size makes me think he'll do well from jump. Still, a 
risky pick in the first round. Let 'em hang coach

Tim Tebow, his poor mechanics have improved drastically in the past 
few months. His work ethic has never been questioned. His delivery had 
to be overhauled though. From his drop to his stride and even his 
throwing motion. Doesn't sound like first rounder to me. But can you 
over look a guy that won and won often in the SEC? He's a winner, a 
soldier and most importantly he's a leader. Let 'em hang coach

If Tebow works out the fans will fall madly in love with the move. If 
not, the fans will have little problem letting coach Josh hang. Bold 
moves coach, very bold.

As I said, I am not sold on the picks. But I do know that Denver has 
been sorely missing something for a while now.

Last season Kyle Orton was simply touched on the shoulder in the 
pocket and it caused him to turtle up and fall to the ground. It still 
makes my stomach turn.

Last season McDaniels ran to the crowd pumping his fist in fury and 
celebration. It was great but that fire burned quick and died. And in 
the marathon that is the NFL season, you need more than that to get 

The Broncos have lacked sustain passion for far too long. So if it's a 
hulk of a QB like Quinn or a warrior like Tebow. There needs to be 
more fire, period.

Shannahan's guys are gone now coach, this is officially your team and 
it's in your image. Your terms have been met so now can the 
expectations be met? I do know that if you play on your own terms, 
you're playing the game the right way.

Demaryius Thomas, Tim Tebow and Josh McDaniels. Let em hang men, let 
em hang.
