    I think Denver values him in case Cutler doesn't work out. No trade.

    Let's go Hodgdon! At least the back ups can get experience of the D line blowing past them.

    Well, without Flanagan, we'll probably start running the ball well. He was our worst offensive lineman.

    Doesn't matter about Sage, he wasn't going to play anyway.

    Exactly. Plummer is Denvers veteran backup now and so he won't be available until after the end of the year if at all. We also don't know if they'll try and keep him around ala Neil O'Donnell or just let him walk.

    No help is coming from Denver this year.

    We'll miss Flanagan more I think. Hodgdon needs to get in there and lay claim to the starting position. It's time for him to step up and prove that he's supposed to be our starting center (or at least a reasonable facsimile of one).

    It would be nice to see him lock that job down over the next 5 games. I don't expect it to happen (my expectations are pretty limited with this bunch) but it would be nice to see him do it.

    A poster from Denver said that he had a source that said Plummer was asking to be cut so that he could be reunited with Kubiak. However, I doubt Denver just lets him walk, right now, IF true.

    Reunited and it feels so good ... NOT! Guys, lets all just agree that trading away draft picks for a guy who just got his spot taken by a rookie while his team is in a division race is not a good idea.

    no way i see denver cutting plummer at this stage. i really don't want to see him here, however, if anyone would know if plummer is better than carr, it would be kubiak. i really just see them as being close to equal.

    I never said anything about trading away a draft pick. I'd take Plummer as my starter next season if it meant I could get a 3 or even a 4 for Carr but I wouldn't send Denver a thing for rights to Jake Plummer. Isn't his contract there up after this season anyway?

    I'd pick up Plummer and trade Carr for a third or fourth rounder in a heartbeat....

    That's not going to happen. If Plummer comes here, David will start. David hasn't been starting because he is the better QB, David is starting because he is our future at QB. That will not change if we manage to get Brady or Peyton Manning on our roster.

    David is our future, and Kubiak is & will treat him that way.

    Wait until Casserly gets another GM gig and we'll get a 1st & a 2nd!

    Who starts the obligatory "Van Pelt should start" thread?

    A couple of years ago David was our future. Unfortunately, he's our present and our win/loss record is a direct reflection of that. He'll be our past in 2009... which can't get here soon enough.

    I think you will be proven wrong on this thunderkyss. I think this season David has turned a corner but it's not the one anyone wanted to see. I think he'll probably make it another year but he's already a lame duck in the eyes of many.

    He's Tim Couch waiting to happen.

    David is our past and our past is one of consistent losing. He'll always be associated with that here and would have to literally transform into another Peyton Manning to be thought of in any other manner.

    We're not using that as an excuse again this year. This is just a bad football team and it has nothing to do with injuries.
