Maybe playing WITH a broken ankle.

Yeah, WTF? Kupe is solid.

Wow that's a bold statement from Mike miller. How can the number 1 ranked rushing offense in the NFL have the worst run blocking guard in the league?

Seems to me Kuper may have dated millers lady and miller is holding a grudge against him.

Going through the guys other tweets. This guy is amazingly unprofessional for a "journalist."

Makes no sEnse to me. As from everything I heard he was a pro bowl prospect until the injury.

Well, it's from Bleacher Report...

Kuper is a decent run blocker but fairly weak when it comes to short yardage. I saw some stat that showed he rarely ever got any push on 3rd and 4th and inches.

He looks like some kind of hipster dufus with that V neck. Even I would pancake this clown into the ground and I suck at run blocking.

jajajaja I can play that game too:

Having scouted every wannabe "scout" individual, Matt Miller is by far the worst talent evaluator in the <s>#</s>NFL (https://twitter.com/#%21/search?q=%23NFL). This is just pitiful

So according to one "expert" Walton is the worst center in the league, according to another Kuper is the worst run blocking guard in the league and we still managed to be top 10 in yards per carry and number 1 overall in rush yards.

Even if he is bad, there's probably one worse. Especially considering he didn't clarify starting. He just said NFL.

Apparently Beadles is the worst LG in the league, too... so by all accounts, Clady and Franklin must be basically superhuman.

Maybe he got the names wrong and meant Beadles. That would at least make sense.

Not just the worst run-blocking guard, the worst run-blocking lineman period.

And not just the worst run-blocking lineman period, "BY FAR" the worst run-blocking lineman period.

The guy is truly incompetent.

IIRC most of Tebows scoring runs went right past Kuper.. Over Kupers spot on the OL..

Guess he made a couple of blocks..

All you have to do is watch any run play pre snap and then one second post snap and look at who is pushing upfield, not moving or see Zane Beadles on his knees. Most of the time Kuper is at least three yards upfield owning his guy.

Thankfully the front office knows and has said several times they felt he had a pro-bowl caliber year this year. I agree.

Well consider the source.. the Bleacher Report ? Isn't this the 'blog' that was trying to force a competition with Pro Football talk a few years back.. look who won.

Well, if it's on Bleecher Report and being tweeted. That's good enough for me.

Bye Kupe, it's been real.

I've written a letter of recommendation to EFX to bring in MHM as a consultant to the team. I mean, he won like 35 fantasy championships.

Are we sure they didn't just accidentally name the wrong player or something? This makes no sense.

Let me see if I have this right. This "expert" says Kuper is the worst run-blocking guard in the league, and some other expert has Walton as the worst center.

Adding to that are all the experts on the Mane that say Beadles is the worst starting guard in the league, and Franklin is not a starting tackle, but a guard instead; and not to mention that Clady still hasn't fully recovered, and he never was much a run blocker to begin with.

So we have all that and yet miraculously led the league in rushing yards this year. Humm...something doesn't compute.

I know you have a hard on for Zane but I remeber seeing him pulling and knocking folks off their feet on quite a few Tebow runs..

He may lack in Pass protect but From what I have seen not a bad run blocker..

In fact IMO the entire OL sucks at pass blocking, maybe adding 5-10 pounds of upper body muscle would help them all..

Just maybe another decent year of coaching will be helpfull also..

None of them really that great. Kupers injury came so late in the yr he may not be ready to go 100% early in the season. Broncos need a big guard and I think Nicks from NO would fit the bill.

Run blocking is just too simple to grade. After a few minutes instruction, most of our mothers could manage reasonably accurate run block grading.

This is too wrong, it's SO wrong, I'm inclined to think he actually did have have #68 and #73 reversed.
