Let's be honest.  Fisher most likely wanted Gostkowski in that draft.  And taking him at #3 would have been a better move than what Reese did.

Ha ha. Yeah, Reese was responsible for the VY pick....

That was all Bud. Reese was the GM, but Bud picked VY

 

I seem to recall either Reese or Fisher laying it out in an interview a couple years ago:    Both Reese and Fisher wanted Cutler.   Chow was banging the table for Leinart.   

 

But of course, Bud trumped them all.

He did fine building the team. His issue was keeping it together. 

 

His issue was he stuck with older declining players and players at non crucial positions. Paying big money to Wycheck, Matthews, Piller, Sanders, Hentrich, NOD. Bruce Matthews was like 37 when he signed a 4 year deal, Wycheck was close to done on his last deal. 

 

Thigpen was injured when he signed him

 

He put himself in a corner to the point of Rolle, Mason etc.... holding him hostage in their primes

 

He accidently guaranteed the RFA tenders of Aric Morris and two other scrubs

 

Terrible job maintaining the roster once they became a SB contender

 

Seriously? That's not bad decision making, that's just straight up incompetence.
 

But bad decision making did become commonplace for him. All those wasted draft picks/free agent signings on bums at WR. He hit on maybe two receivers his entire time here, Mason and Bennett. Mason was pure luck and Bennett was little more than a flash in the pan.

Reese had a ton of misses.  McNair is his prime and Fisher in his prime as a coach hid a lot of sins.  Once McNair started breaking down (not to mention be enabled as an alcoholic poon hound), it was all over.

Does it matter since all of them were dead ends? Cutler mighthave been the best but none of them were worth shit when you look into it.

Bud even forced them to offer the Saints our 1st/2nd rounder for their 1st.

 

They declined thinking we would take Bush...lucky us.

Eh, probably win the SB if they take us up on that offer and we don’t draft LenDale who fumbled away the 08 Ravens game.

Bump....

 

2+ months after the fact, we're finally getting to hear Casey's side of the story.     I know the NFL is a business and all that.... but you'd think JRob and Vrabel would at least have the common courtesy of calling Casey personally to let him know he was being traded.

PR spin. He knows how fans reacted to his being traded so he's playing to that.

 

Seems like there might be something else to this. The only thing I can think of might be related to DMorgan's wife's veganism. Didn't Casey buy into that heavily? Maybe he was pushing that hard behind the scenes, to the point where there was conflict with the team and its sports doctors/nutritionists?

It's as simple as Simmons replaces Casey's role in the D and that Casey already had started to decline some.  Better to get out too early than too late. 

 

I'm sure it sucks for Casey but guys like him and Walker unfortunately wasted their primes on bad teams.

By trading for Casey, the Broncos guaranteed his contract.. much better than being released financially  and gives Casey a couple more well paid seasons on an up and coming team

How many of the vegans are left?

It's almost like.. being vegan was good for healing and inflammation but after the first year all the players suffered.

Hmm... if only like a shit ton of people had said this might happen.
