Brackett is to small for the 3/4, but was the hart & soul of our 4/3. A warrior & the classic over achiever! He played hard & had a knack for the big hit or play. his leadership will be missed. Respected by his teammates. The team not the coach's pick the captions. he wore the C well.

Eh.....i'm not going to miss him one iota.

Time to get guys on this D that have an NFL pedigree, size-strength-athletic ability, and were actually drafted because of it.

he served a purpose, could catch and run some, now we dont have that and are down two tight ends and either will have to draft one or get one as undrafted free agent, he was plugging a hole that we have now and he was young, was he as good as clark? well we dont really know, clark had years to develop on the field also Clark was never a top Tight End if you think about, would you put him up with Tony Gonzalez or Gronkowski status? I woudnt

i would never put clark in that class, by the same token i would never put tamme in clark's class...but i'm sure peyton will make him look good in denver.

I wouldnt put Tamme in Clarks status NOT because I dont think he can get but more so because Tamme hasnt been given the shot Clark had, I certainly wouldnt count last year as a fair shot do to the fact we had horrendous Quarterback play with the exception of Orlovskie (which in my opinion was a very good backup and could start on some teams in the league

Clark 2009 100 catches 1106 yards 10 td

Clark 2010 37 catches 347 3 td

Tamme 2010 67 catches 631 yards 4 td

44+84 2010 104 catches 978 yards 7 td.

Tamme played at a pro bowl level when he replaced Dallas in 2010. Don't be surprised for Denver to have a couple of receivers/tight ends in the Pro Bowl this year.

stats don't tell the whole story. tamme doesn't get much seperation and doesn't do much after the catch except go down. tamme caught a lot of passes that year because of injuries to others...peyton had to throw to somebody. heck, he made blair white look like an nfl player

    • Do you think Bill Belichick has cornered the market on ideas?   Do you think he does not make mistakes?   BB made Dont’a Hightower one of the NFL ‘s highest paid players.  So, poof,  there goes your Leonard argument.  When players perform at a premium level you pay them what they’re worth.   Period.   You’re badly over-thinking this.   There is no perfect formula to a championship.   You think Ballard is not aware that when he pays a guard premium money that means he’ll be paying other positions less than premium.   He 100 percent knows that.     It’s always, Always, ALWAYS better to have too much talent than not enough.  Dallas has paid a fortune into its OL for years.   Smith, Martin, used to have Frederick at Center.  Used to have a good guard who left in FA, and then Collins who is now getting paid.   3 of their 5 getting top money and it used to be 4 before Frederick had to retire early.   They had a top 3 OL for years.   They figured out the rest of the roster.     They’re paying big money while a good number of younger players are on their cheaper rookie contracts.   That’s life for GM’s in the NFL.  Too much talent is always a good thing.    You never take a lesser player who plays a premium position over a much better player at a so-called non-premium position.   Never.   Do you think it’s a coincidence that the play of the Colts OL dramatically improved when Nelson joined the team?   Come on....   Sorry, but your logic is twisted beyond all recognition.     
    • Dang, four playoff spots up got grabs between six teams.  
    • Jag fans would riot..  
    • Colts wearing their color rush 
    • Maybe Nelson plays LT this week and balls out, then the problem is resolved, LOL.    IDK, depends on how the draft goes towards filling the pricey players at LT, DE, WR, and QB.  We might have to let one of Nelson or Leonard go.  We might get a 3rd round comp pick for Nelson's contract, 4th for Leonard's contract, and we could find a ILB in that round.  Don't have to make that decision for a while, and if Ballard can hit on those pricey position draft picks, we could pay both while the youngsters are playing on their rookie deals.   No, I doubt BB would pay either....and would take the comp picks.  But I don't think he is a great drafter given the number of picks he has had over the years.
