Tweet of the day (re: Clausen): With win Sunday Jimmy Clausen would tie Mark Vlasic for most victories (2) by NFL QB named for a brand of pickle.
And as for the Cutler trade, it's interesting to see some of the names that got eventually got drafted in some slots that the Broncos traded away:
First in 09 Denver got Robert Ayers with the 18th pick, used the 84 (Mike Wallace) in a package to trade up to 64 and got Richard Quinn. The Bears used 140 that year to select Johnny Knox.
The 2010 pick Denver played ping pong first trading 11 (Anthony Davis: non unibrow edition) to SF for 13 and 113. Then 13 (Brandon Graham) went to PHI for 24, 70, and 87. DEN then trades 24 and 113 (Aaron Hernandez) to NE for 22 (also NE trades out of 24 to DAL who took Dez Bryant). With the 87 pick, DEN took Decker. That 70 pick (Ed Dickson), it got shipped to BAL along with 43 (originally received in the Marshall trade to MIA - which BAL used on Sergio Kindle), and 114 (Dennis Pitta) for none other than The Golden Calf of Bristol.
