Calm down dude. I don't think we'll get a shot at Jamaal Charles but he's a great RB as well. Same with Kevin Smith, Tashard Choice.... damn, just checked the board and these guys are already off the table! Freaking KC got Charles! LEX IS RIGHT!!! :afro:

I agree. We needed to get one of the top running backs. I think this shows we are going to try and sign Shaun Alexander.

MechanicalBull
04-27-2008, 10:02 AM
I don't see RB as that big of a need as others make it out to be. Henry was the leading rusher or right up there before he got banged up and his legal battle and Young is a good change of pace back. Now Henry has a year in the system and should come in fully healthy and his mind is now free of all his legal issues so I don't think it's that bad.

If Shanahan isn't happy with our RB situation I would hope he would draft one instead of signing Shaun Alexander which is the rumor out there.

Whats a top running back? Some piece of meat you throw in the Denver system for a few years untill his body breaks down and we send him away?

We've got plenty of RBs, RBs are useless to us, don't mind me, I make this speech every year. Unless there's another Terrell Davis on the board and shanny finds him in the 4th - 6th, I don't see a need to even bring the position up for talk.

RunningBack is a need, however this year I think we have bigger holes to fill. I'm cool with them skipping a RB altogether and focusing on those other areas. Were we supposed to trade up for Jamaal Charles?

Archie
04-27-2008, 10:20 AM
We need a O-Line... So getting a potentially great left OT and one that fits well in our system was a great pick. I'm still only OK with the Royal pick. But... not picking a top running back I'm ok with. If we can get a great line again then I think we can rely on shanny magic in a late round RB. But it all starts with the line.

Thank you. Funny how people forget that running backs are nothing more than cheap cattle and for the last 12 years it is PROVEN that the line and the system is what makes the running back work.

We get good production out of our line and our running game will be best in the AFCW, no matter who is toting the rock for us.

Let me think about this a second. Everyone and their sister agrees that the Broncos draft RB talent down round better then anyone else. We also just cut Travis Henry's contract, and have two promising rookies in Andre Hall and Selvin Young. And you are complaining that we work on our O-Line and D-Line in the offseason.

No, its not just that. Its Shanahan forgoing a real opportunity to improve the team on offense because of a two year fixation with Hester and a wasted draft choice on Javon Walker.

So pre-KC taking Charles you were for the Eddie Royal pick. Now that we don't get him its now doom and gloom, horrible first day?

Jamaal Charles isn't that good man. No one who plays at Texas is. They don't teach guys **** there. Horrible fundamentals, just athletes doing athletic things that they can get by with in college. That don't fly in the pros. Charles would have a long road to travel before we could rely on him as a feature back. Clinton Portis he is not.

Relax !!!!

First off, let's not put too much hype into the premier RB's in the draft. Plenty of them don't do jack when they get to the NFL (see, Cadicallac Williams, Ronnie Brown, Ron Dayne, Clarrett, Phillips, Salam, and the list goes on an on). This is not to say you don't take a top RB if that's your #1 need but you don't need to go friggin looney because you didn't snag somebody in the first two rounds when you have more important needs. IMHO, you need to get better up front to have sucess in the running game.

Secondly, MR. ASU (Ryan) is a pretty damn good back. I saw him 3 times last year before he got hurt and he is a beast. So he doesn't have eye popping speed. What I saw was a very physical runner who punnished tacklers and does a good job of holding onto the rock. ASU has 2 other frickin amazing underclassman (one who will remind you alot of Barry Sanders) and he held those guys from starting so that is saying something. I think Ryan is gonna make the people who loved TD very happy. A very similar style and approach to running. Also to note, he is absolutely fearless when it comes to blocking for the QB. I saw a few times where he popped LB's pretty damn hard, he wasn't just trying to "get in the way" if you know what I mean.

I gotta go with Wolf's posts, but yeah they are pretty funny.

I didn't understand picking Larsen, but Shanny said we might try him out at FB. I like the idea of actually getting a FB rather than just plugging in a RB that didn't quite work out at RB. I miss the days of Howard Griffith.

But... not picking a top running back I'm ok with. If we can get a great line again then I think we can rely on shanny magic in a late round RB. But it all starts with the line.

The thread was over waaaaaay back here. Broncos are happy with their Running back core. They have several of the best proven running backs in the business for cheap. I am glad they didn't draft a high dollar running back.

We are in essence using a two running back system. There are very few premier running backs in the league and finding them in the draft and putting all your hopes on them is short sighted. We needed a bruiser running back. He will probably be a FB for us. There is a lot of competition at the RB slot. We have a good situation there. A high priced Running Back isn't a sure thing.

I never said I "hated" the Clady pick.

I thought he was a raw LT and didn't know how he would stack up against more quicker and stronger DE's, and I also said he better hurry up and sign a contract so he can hit the ground running to learn. Clady will be even better as he gets more experience.

I thought last year the team needed a top flight RB that moves the chains and has a nose for the EZ. Turns out that was one of the problems on the team last season.

I never said I "hated" the Clady pick.

I thought he was a raw LT and didn't know how he would stack up against more quicker and stronger DE's, and I also said he better hurry up and sign a contract so he can hit the ground running to learn. Clady will be even better as he gets more experience.

I thought last year the team needed a top flight RB that moves the chains and has a nose for the EZ. Turns out that was one of the problems on the team last season.

lmao good bump Kaylore.

Shows us how much of a loser lex really is.

:spit:

OK, show me where Kaylore is right (that I was trashing Clady) or where it was about Mendenhall. Go ahead. As a matter of fact, in one post I specifically said that 12 was a position where RB or OT had the greatest value. Kaylore is some crotchsniffing assclown who makes stuff up. But anyway, again, show me where it was anti Clady or Royal (per se).

Lex, everyone knows you were sucking mendenhalls d!c k and this is one of many meltdown threads from last year.

Ironically you didnt even want Moreno and went waaay out of your way to petition Mr Glass, and said Rashad Jennings was a better pick.

Its just the way the draft plays out. I am glad we got Moreno. But thats only becuase of the way it played out.

lex, after your meltdown last year why haven't you shown more support for the Moreno pick? He's the consensus #1 RB in this draft. I know you wanted Wells but you should be thrilled with this pick after all the lobbying you've done for a first round RB in the past.

Once again, I said numerous times that OT and RB were the positions that had the most value at 12. I liked Mendenhall more than Stewart but so did Mayock. But show my a meltdown from taking Clady. The meltdown occurred when missing out on the first wave of RBs and also when we took Ryan Torain.

Because when I think about where Moreno compares to RBs from other years (or even this year) Im skeptical. I also am not thrilled with his speed, nor the fact that we seem to be placing equal emphasis on blocking and catching. I hope he does well but I remain skeptical. And I am glad we finally got out of that "we dont need a RB until the 5th round" mentality.

It wasn't a problem when Hillis was playing.

He is fast enough. One of the problems with rookie running backs is that they need to learn to be part of the blocking scheme and also know routes. If you get a back who has a backround in this, you are more likely to have a full time starter. Also not worried about Moreno's speed. Pretty sure he is fast enough.
