    If they made those mistakes in a game ok boo if you want.

    but to boo at a practice seems a bit dramatic to me....

    I dont think this was a normal practice. This was the first scrimmage after the debacle that has become Josh McDaniels. I would have booed too

    well it still seems a bit extreme to boo them but it's that person's choice I guess.

    I'd save my boo's up for a game that really counted...and lots of people don't agree or like booing your team at all.

    I see both sides of it.

    Considering the riffs McDaniels started... I'd boo 'em too. That franchise was a healthy one in severe rebuild mode with not much to show for it. I'd boo louder than the average person. Now is the time to let the organization know that one is not happy with their moves. Not in games but training camp when not so many eyes are on them.

    It's practice for the fans, too. There will be plenty of booing going on at Invesco this season.

    The second the Broncos start to win the fans will cheer McDaniels. Based on the offense that McDaniels is hoping to establish, Orton should be more than capable. The Defense last year was abysmal and will be better. They will likely drop off a bit offensively but the D should be better. Their Division stinks, so I predict they will end up 2nd with about 6 wins next year.

    pretty reasonable prediction. all they have to do is win half their divisional games and win 3 out of the remaining 10.

    i do think its gonna be a tough season though and lots of boo-birds. McDaniels has probably had the worst beginning to a head coaching career in the history of the NFL and they spent 3 1st Round picks and didn't address the QB position.

    But considering he took over a team that won 8 games last year, and would have gone to the playoffs (albeit undeservedly) if they could have managed to win even one of their last three games, do you really think the fanbase will understand and cheer McDaniels for a 6 win season?

    We cheered Kubiak for going 6-10 in his first year (well, lots of us did), but taking over a team that had just gone through a Bataan Death March of a season is a little different than taking over a team who's fans were expecting a division title right up to the end (see previous undeserved disclaimer).

    The Broncos don't own a 2010 1st round pick. That potential #1 overall selection would belong to the Seattle Seahawks.

    It might be the fans first chance to let McDaniels know what they think about letting go of their franchise QB. Just sayin'...

    Yup.

    That Orton - Cutler trade would be like Rick Smith trading AJ to the Giants for David Tyree and a sixer of Milwaukee's Best. You'd be pissed, too, and probably inclined to boo the first thing you could.

    They'd better select McCoy if they have the first pick.

    I'm no UT homer. Red Raiders are my college team, and the leadership he exhibited against TTU in that game in Lubbock was awesome. I actually found that I admired a UT player for a change.

    Colt is going to be the shizz in the NFL, IMO. Very Elway'ish. Tough, gritty, determined, and almost held everything together when it looked like it was over against TTU.

    No, Bradford will be the top QB of the draft class. McCoy will be above average, but not an all-star. McCoy is a great college QB, but I dont see him as a great pro QB.
