Drew Litton:Shanahan's Square peg

    Come now Drew. Javon Walker was recently shown the door, Hixon was let go last year, and Martinez is marginable. The Broncos clearly have a need for a number 2 and number 4 receiver, and hopefully 2 of these 3 WR signings can fit that bill.
    As for our other needs, I think we addressed LB, S and now WR. Hopefully we can get a DT via the Robertson trade, an OT via the draft, a FB via the draft (which would shore up the running game without need of a new high-priced RB), a K via the draft, and a punt and kick returner in the draft and we'd be right back in the thick of things. Given the sheer number of needs still to fill, maybe the more appropriate picture would have been Shanahan inserting one peg and being faced with a whole slew of holes still in front of him.

    Seriously this is what we get with all that is going in sports.....

    Nugs making playoffs, Aves taking a 3-2 lead in the series, longets rockies game ever (although you didn't have time for that one)....

    C-mon Drew do some Ave toons, or atleast stay up to date with what is going on....yeah the doncos made a trade, but thats small potatoes. I think you hate Hockey or the Aves.

    I like your stuff, but this one is boring, no offense

    I don't see how this cartoon makes any sense. Everybody always gripes about spending big money for free agents, so the Bronx are spending a little money for wide receivers - which actually *ARE* a need. Cutler will need somebody to throw to.

    I agree that receivers aren't the top need, but the draft will help w/ the O line. I could see this if the Bronx were acquiring a QB or something, but receivers? The cartoon is out of place.

    Good comments. Just an FYI. I had a Nuggets cartoon in this mornings Playoffs section, and as far as the Avs go, I haven't drawn off of games because of the late starts. I'm fast but with games going into OT it makes my turnaround time precariously short. I'm sure when we get into the next round I'll be doing some stuff live on deadline. Just hope the start times aren't 8. That makes it nearly impossible. And, remember, I've done cartoons for deadline in 45 minutes(see the Kansas cartoon from the Final Four) That's pretty quick by anyones standards. But unfortunately, I haven't perfected the 5 minute cartoon yet. Not that I haven't tried. But critiques well taken. You want more Avs cartoons. Coming right up guys.

    I couldn't agree more with Kurt. How in the world can you not have an Avs cartoon today? Especially with the frickin miracle that Theodore pulled off last night! And the game started at 7pm, Drew. And it didn't go to overtime. This is an unbelievable playoff series that the Avs are in, with some incredible individual performances, and if one were to look at Drew's cartoons, you wouldn't even know it was going on.

    For all of you being critical of Drew, try stepping up to the plate and try actually drawing on deadline for games that could go either way in a hearbeat. Nothing quite like spending an hour on a toon idea just to have the other team rip off a bunch of goals, points, or runs in a few minutes time and totally change the idea strategy.
    How about giving Drew a break. If you're all so gung-ho, start your own blog and draw your stick figure Jose Theodore and have a ball.
    For all you critics, try thinking about things before you post garbage like some of the comments left here.

    Yeah, seriously folks - Give the guy a break. Try putting yourself in Drew's position to have to work on the fly as he does. Too bad most people complain on this forum instead of saying thanks.

    p.s. - Thanks Drew!

    I think everyone is fond of Drew's cartoons and appreciates his talent. In fairness to the critics, though, there are plenty of possibilities for cartoons that don't have to be tied directly to the precise ending for the game. For example, given how outstanding Theodore has been in these playoffs (and since Christmas really), a cartoon showing Pierre Lacroix smiling and getting the last laugh over his trade would be perfectly appropriate, even had the Avs managed to lose that game very late. (Heck, that cartoon would have been appropriate even before the playoffs started.) Such a cartoon would still be more timely, topical, and relevant, without requiring Drew to wait until the final horn sounds on the game.

    Drew's cartoons are great. This is just constructive criticism as it relates to drawing more relevant cartoons, especially as they relate to the Avs--which have been sorely lacking. For those ripping on the critics, chill out.

    it took elway 3 years to get it done the D is healthy, if boss stays healthy are LB will be really good elvis will be a even better pass rusher this year so all thats left is a first round OT a DT and some
