Concerned citizens for the release of Dre Bly

I know I'm not the only one. If your a Broncos fan and follow team you have to know what I'm talking about. How in God's name did this guy ever go to a pro bowl? This guy has been a colossal dissapointment. He is certainley not the same player he was in Detroit. How about the illegal contact penalty he committed on 3rd and 17? It was away from the play for God's sake. What is he thinking? That one cost us 7 points. Thanks Dre. Let's see he get's burned constantly, can't tackle, and committs massive penalties. It can't be just me who notices this.

The word in training camp was that Domonique Foxworth outplayed Dre Bly and deserved the starting #2 cornerback position. The Broncos decided they couldn't have a guy to whom they pay SO much money sitting on the bench or just playing dime and nickle. So instead of giving Foxworth the starting nod, they give it to Bly. Not because he earned the job but because of his salary. In then they TRADE Foxworth for a freakin' seventh round pick. Are you kidding me? I don't know about you but Domonique Foxworth is looking pretty darn good right now. Dre Bly is freakin' otrocious. He's gotta go.

Here's how it's gonna go down. (Broncos to potential suiters) "okay we'll give Dre Bly for a 2nd round draft pick." (Potential suiters) "Absolutley not, how about a used gatorade dispenser and two pairs of used shoulder pads"  (good condition). (Broncos) "SOLD". Maybe I'm just dreaming but I'd make that deal in a heartbeat. Please make him go away.

As do I. One doesn't need to look at just stats to judge a players performance. I do not believe Dre Bly has played well and at least a majority of intelligent Broncos fans happen to agree. I guess this is just one topic we will have to agree to disagree. Just an FYI, it's ok to be critical of players on your team, especially when their making that much money. Sounds kind of like your blinded by your fandom. That's ok though. I am sometimes too. Just not in this particular instance.

Wow! A poll! You really got me there! (sarcasm meter is pegging) 6 people who actually posted a reply on that thread agreed with me, 2 agreed with you and 1 was just comparing Bly to Bailey.  Miked383 hit the nail on the head that for the money he is a good corner.  When we picked up Bly we had just drafted a bunch of young DE's that are struggling to develop still.  This is a young team that needs time.

Again no offense intended but your poll was worthless.  Even though the % of votes was 2 to 1 for yes, Obviously the people who voted yes did not have a valid opinion to offer except 2. 

All I'm saying is if your going to post an opinion, be prepared to back it up.  I love football and love to talk about it.

Wow, You take things way too seriously. I write for fun and to get a rise out of people (mission accomplished). If your going to tell me that avid Bronco fans will not agree that Dre Bly is playing horrible, then your sadly mistaken. I go to every game as I have my whole life and everybody I sit with agrees that Bly is playing freaking horrible. You speak of "facts". I don't have provide you with "facts" because it's called an opinion. Me saying Dre Bly is playing horrible doesn't need anything to back it up. I have eyes, I see him get burned all the time. As for not having any support of my statements I guarantee you that many other intelligent Broncos fans agree with me. When you say things in your writings like "retarted" or "gayest" as I have seen in your posts, it tends to take away from your credibility and make you sound extremeley immature. Your a fellow Bronco fan so I'm not going to argue with you further. It's all in good fun but please make some sense and don't take things so seriously. It's a freaking sports blog for christ sake.

My point is if you do not intend for them to have any substance then why do you post a blog?  If your going to put yourself out there with titles like "Concerned citizens for the release of Dre Bly" then you should expect criticism.  The title insinuates that you have support for your statements yet you freely admit that it is just all in fun.  If your going to make comments like that, then you should have to back it up and if you have sources that you can't prove then you should not quote them even anonymously. 

Your not posting a comment on a message board, your blogging.  Take ownership and defend your comments with facts or at least put up a good argument based on logic.  I am not trying to insult you, just shooting holes in your theories.  Did you ever think that most people don't share your ideas?  Who are all these "concerned citizens"?

I used to blog cooking recipes because people liked it but I had the top 100 rating for a while and it just attracted trolls and trouble makers, So I'll take back the retard comment if it offended you but if you really believe that Dre Bly is not a good corner then you don't know anything about football.

I will compliment your writing style and grammar, but if your being defensive it must be out of guilt.  Keep posting but do some research first.  There's too much BS on the internet already that people take for fact. 

And if your a true fan, show some respect for the team and it's players.  Your entitled to your opinion, but if your going to be critical of a Bronco player, back it up with facts.

Obviously your not listening to anything being said. My posts are not meant to have substance, they are meant to be fun. I did not give myself a writers badge or whatever it is, somebody gave it to me so they must like what I post. In conclusion, if you really think Dre Bly is doing a good job then your a friggin' retard. Try to relax a little bit you seem very tense and are taking things way too serious. It's just football man.

Dude, don't get your panties in a bunch. 

If you really think that the reason Bly's pass defens eis not that good is not because of the lack of pass rush, then you don't knwo what your talking baout.  Like I said, your posts are colorful and your a good writer, but that writers badge has gone straight to your head.  Your posts have no substance.

Do you have some kind of man crush on Dre Bly? Are you going to honestly sit there and tell me that he has been anything but downright awful? I don't feel the need to name drop but yes I do know people in the orginazation and yes the general concensus in training camp was that Domonique outplayed him. If you didn't hear that than you sir are the retard.It might have been a bad call but it still led to 7 points, not to mention he gets burned every single game like clockwork. I write these mainly for fun and the fact I'm bored at work, no need to get all agro buddy. Sounds like you need to take a deep breath or take a walk outside or something buddy. Dre Bly is a freakin hacker!!!!

     Dude, I read your posts mostly for the entertainment value and see what foolish thing you will say next, and don't get me worng.  Your a good writer, but.......

     Your a retard.  How about the illegal contact penalty he committed on 3rd and 17?

Even my GF 8 year old son could see it was a bogus call by the refs.  The receiver hit him.

Do you actually read the Broncos message board?       Everyone was griping about that and the other "supposed" pass interference call on Manuel and Marquis(SP?). And it was pretty much a collective agreement that we can't gripe about calls, becuase we have been the recipient of some calls that tipped the game our way.

The word in training camp was that outplayed Dre Bly and deserved the starting #2 cornerback position.

Really?  Who are your sources?  Did not know you were on a first name basis with anyone in the Broncos organization.

Foxworth did not perform as well in camp as Bly and can't tackle as well or cover as well.  I liked him but he got beat.

The only reason Dre Bly is not looking that good is because the D-line can't seem to put any pressure on opposing QB's and they have enought time to check their e-mail while ewaiting for someone to get open.  Champ has only had the ball thrown his way 10 times this year.  Even he would not be able to cover a receiver for 7-10 seconds completely and he has had a couple of deep passes thrown on him.  Bly is getting about 6-7 attempts thrown his way during a game.

I say get rid of Crowder and Moss and get Cory Redding or Kearney from Seatlle.  Oops. too late.  Trade deadline has come and gone.
