    the broncos just traded alphonso smith for lions backup TE dan gronkowski. for those keeping score at home, mcdaniels in essence used the 14th pick ( what they gave up to get smith in the 09 draft) in this years draft for a 3rd string TE....

    McDumbass makes my brain hurt a bit. The other trades didn't bother me as much as this one. How stupid can you be? Smith cant be that bad 1 year in.

    Oh THAT Gronkowski! I saw that in the cuts thread and assumed it was the Patriots TE because Bodden is on IR. Thought that was a decent deal, but damn that is $@"&in stupid!

    I guess we can expect them to trade Dumerville for a 2nd string RB in the near future...

    It's one thing to make a mistake, but to give up and make an announcement that you failed so soon...that's just foolish.

    I think McDaniels realized that Smith isn't who he thought he was and decided to get something out of him instead of nothing down the road. Yes, it's not the greatest move in the world but its better to pull the plug no than later.

    Either McDaniels is a mad genius or Denver will be recovering from his tenure as coach for a long time.

    It's horrible PR. At worst, keep the kid buried on the depth chart. He's not doing himself or his FO any favors with this move.

    It's funny to think that McDaniels basically traded Earl Thomas for Alphonso Smith, which ended up getting them a crappy TE. I would be very surprised if this team has more than 4 wins this year.

    My only problem with McDaniels and his trades are............

    Why the hell aren't the Texans getting any of those good Denver players for 7th round picks, back-ups or practice squad guys.

    Yeah, I understand not wanting to get Cutler or Marshal's baggage, but I would have offered a TE for Smith.

    I honestly think he might end up being one of the most epic fails we've ever seen of a HC that butchered up an up and coming team.

    This guy's ego is that big. It's like he wants no part of any player that was from the Shanahan regime no matter how good they might be. THey had what looked like one of the best young offenses in the league in Shanny's last season and since McD came there Cutler and Marshall are both gone. Royal has been completely phased out of this offense. Sheffler who was a young promising TE is gone. Hillis is gone. Every offensive play maker they had is gone. Then they put their #1 draft pick Moreno in a time share last season at RB after using a 1st round pick on the guy. Then we won't even get into the risky draft picks he threw away for Tim Tebow who might not pan out at all. Mcdaniels has some sort of weird ego where he's trying to prove to everyone that he's some genius or something.

    I pretty much agree with everything you said Tex. It may take a couple of years to tell how much he's effed up but I believe that will be the end result.

    How long do you think McDaniels will be a head coach?

    Over/Under on 3 Years.


    I'll take the under I think he's out after this season or by the end of next. :)

    Fixed that for ya!

    I think McDaniels feels like with Tebow on board he not only has a qb but also Jesus Christ himself on board with the Broncos.
