When I say thank you Denver - I mean thank you for firing Mike Shannahan. If Josh McDaniels isn't the Head Coach of the Broncos they don't make the swap with the Ravens. The Ravens get #'s 43, 70 &114 overall, so Josh and the Broncos can move up to #25 overall... WOW!... for what? Tim Tebow? Well than, let me thank you also Tim. The Ravens get Sergio Kindle, Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta. One of the great sportwriters of our era 'Woody Paige" of the Denver Post (when I say great -what I really mean is ridiculous and laughable) writes in his column titled "Tebow ready to prove his worth," says " TimTebow is the chosen one. Tim Tebow was chosen by the Broncos. He is one outstanding choice." An outstanding choice? Well then WOODY. Why would the Broncos with all the needs at a range of areas, draft in the 1st. rd. a 2-4 year project?
It was reported previously from Rexx that Ozzie & co. stated " the man the Ravens were targeting was available to them at #25." The Ravens made the swap anyway. Great move guys! I think that guy was Jared Odrick (DE Penn St). So if I am right, the Ravens basically traded -Jared Odrick for... Sergio Kindle, Ed Dickson, and Dennis Pitta. That may be the best trade the Ravens have ever pulled off!
