Who Wins?

First, Roger Goodell wins. Why? Because the Broncos said hell no to the number 1 pick in the draft and the money that would cost them. This is good leverage for the Commish, and rightfully so. Why should unproven talent get so much money upfront before they do anything at the pro level? 

Second, the Bears. I am not too fraught over "losing" the two 1st Rounders. In the last five, six years, every year the play I want gets bypassed, or we trade down, etc., etc. I am still crying over Chris Williams. I am actually more sad that Orton couldn't stay to be a back up!

But, this makes sense that the Broncos will have KO for a year and they can draft  a QB this year or next  in the 1st-- unless McDaniels wants to see what Simms can do, or what he can find later in this draft. There will be some good players that could be developed (Stephen McGee, Mike Teel, Tom Brandstater, Cullen Harper, Curtis Painter) by Bronco Boy Wonder!

Also, and I wasn't getting my hopes up, but it's ironic that Simms was rumored for weeks and months, and even for the last year, to be headed to Chicago -- or as a possibility that intrigued fans.

And now, both Orton and Simms are Broncos. How funny the world works.

I am happy for all of us long-suffering Bears fans. We now have a QB that we can be confident with. I hope this cloud never dissipates.
