I know it was the Saints D but really love the fact he's back and if this guy can keep improving weekly as he gets time with Manning and working in blocking with the line, wow, adds another dimension to this offense.

I think this is the first POSITIVE Virgil Green thread. That just shows that the whole team is looking like a huge threat...:strong:

He looks like the best TE on the team.

Here is a thread of his very own that was pretty positive.

Is it my imagination or does he look like he is 20lbs heavier, maybe more, than he did last year? I remember him being a bit thinner, but then again it's been a while since I've seen him. :)

Well he was always the most physically gifted TE on our team. I think he's the best blocking TE we have and he is now showing something in the passing game. Could be the Manning affect. I'm sure, as we heard after the game when Thomas was saying how Manning coaches him in practice on just how to run routes, this could be true for Green as well. It's important for him to be successful in the passing game. Just can't trot him out there for running plays and tip the off the defense. If he can't continue to improve in the passing game, wow, as I said, it will be HUGE for this offense.

Virgil is a beast. He caught one of those passes and i had to do a double take because i thought it was DT at first. That dude is huge and has a little speed to him.

He is bigger stronger and almost as fast as DT. My adopt a bronco will get better as the season goes on and next year will start ahead of Dreesen and Tamme.

Good for green.

It sucks that Thomas has been a bust so far after tearing it up in Camp last year.

He's coming along at just the right time. Dreessen is 30, Tamme is 27. Green is flashing the blocking skills needed to replace Dreessen and the athleticism to replace Tamme. That's going to be crucial going forward. Green has every bit as much athletic ability as Aaron Hernandez of the Patriots, if he keeps developing he's going to be a huge draft pick.

If Thomas can get focused and take some big steps forward this off-season we'll be looking real good at TE long term. If he fails to develop though the FO needs to re-address TE in the 2014 draft with an earlier pick, as this offense really does it's best work when it can run two TE sets.

Quality depth at any Position is always a good thing. Welcome back Green. See if you can get your buddy Julius Thomas kick-started as well.

Virgil was a workout warrior at Nevada and the combine, the dude is probably fast as Brandon Marshall but has 40 pounds on him, it seems last night he got some opportunities to loosen up a little bit

Virgil Green certainly looked good yesterday, he run blocks better than Tamme and he is more of a threat to make a big play than either Tamme or Dreesen, he still needs to polish his route running, but he looks like he could be very good.

I was going to say the same thing. He looks like big Carswell looked his last year with denver.

Saw a couple nice seals on the edge from him leading to some positive yardage.

Another kudos to the coaches, this kid was ready to play - and then made the plays when his number was called.

Seeing Green play was like damn this kid is a monster can't wait to see more of him. If he fills his potential.

Manning may have the best receiving core in the league. Imagine that Peyton Manning with the best set of receivers in the league.

To me he looks like DT until i really focused on him.
Hes like a hybrid WR/TE.
I really was impressed with his blocking.
