What are the Broncos doing ??? WHAT ARE THE BRONCOS THINKING? According to Jay Glazer of Foxsports.com, the Broncos could be trading running back Reuben Droughns to the Browns for defensive end Ebenezer Ekuban. The move would give the Broncos three members of the Browns' defensive line from 2004. And this raises an obvious question. What the f--k are the Broncos thinking? The Browns had the worst rushing defense in 2004. Now, underachieving defensive tackle Gerard Warren is in the Denver fold, as is underachieving and constantly-injured defensive end Courtney Brown. Ekuban would complete the ******** trifecta. So why? Sure, Browns defensive line coach Andre Patterson is now a member of the Broncos' coaching staff. But how can the guy already have garnered enough juice to cram three of his former players in Cleveland down Denver coach Mike Shanahan's throat? And why three guys with a disturbing history of injury? In Ekuban's case, the Broncos and Browns are discussing, as Glazer reports, the possibility of draft choice compensation for 2006 if Ekuban is unable to play come September. For Droughns, the potential move gives him a chance to be the featured back in Cleveland's new offense, which isn't a bad deal given the glut of available running backs. If the move occurs, it also means that the Browns will be unlikely to select a running back in round one of the draft, making it far more likely that Cleveland will select one of the two top-shelf quarterbacks with the third overall pick. Back to the Broncos, we're beginning to wonder whether Shanny's lifetime pass from owner Pat Bowlen is seriously holding the team back. With a total of zero playoff wins since blatant salary cap violations delivered back-to-back Super Bowl wins, Shanahan would be doing pop-ins with Rich Eisen right about now if Shanny were held to the same standard as, let's see, every other head coach from the past decade.
