I hope Stokley works out for the Broncos. As much as he's meant to the Broncos, last year's production proved Rod Smith's days are numbered.

Rod Smiths production was down last year. The entire offensive production was down last year. Rod Smith is aging but I think if Cutler lives up to all the expectations then Rod Smith can show why he is the Broncos all-time reception leader. These young receivers are lucky to have a mentor like Rod Smith to pass the torch.

Having been a Bronco fan since their inception of 1960 i follow them pretty closely.
For all the problems the offense had last year and all the proposed solutions I think everybody is overlooking one very important factor here.
Plain and simple they miss Gary Kubiak as an offensive ccordinator but moreso as a guy the offensive players counted on and believed in and looked up to.
Not to fault Rick Dennison i have always wondered why you would take an ex linebacker and make an offensive coordinator out of him.
Seems backwards to me.
Stokely does appear to be a class guy and hopefully can help.
Rod Smith, Ed Mc cafferery, Steve Watson, John Elway, Al Wilson those guys were all leaders and we miss several of them.
Thank goodness for the likes of a John Lynch.
I think Cutler will be special someday, how soon I don't know.

With Stokley, Graham and Henry to the equation, The Cutler Era begins this season! Jevon = Rod
Brandon = Easy Ed
Daniel = Shannon
Travis = Terrell Davis
Cutler = Elway
Broncos = Super Bowl Champs

Stokley should be good for the Broncos. Being a Colts fan, I will miss him on the field with the Colts
