There are people suggesting that he is closer to 28 then 24.

Broncos like Bell's Versatility.

A regular occurence in football or (soccer) as it is known in your fair land from players from the African states. Hundreds of them were brought into Europe by agents with fake passports years ago and brought through youth systems at football clubs, many of whom were older than stated and it only showed in the latter years of their careers.

Yeah I pretty much think every baseball player that comes from the Dominican Republic is about 5 years older then what they say because of that. Hell as a Dodgers fan I'm worried that Yasiel Puig is older then 21!

Off subject but Puig is disgustingly good. As a giants fan I don't like seeing depth on your team. Ha!

You guys are fine as long as LA has Donnie dumdum managing. :thumbs: Puig should be up soon after the Dodgers have that extra year of contract control.

I might add one of my brother is a Giants fan and another is a DBacks fan. Life sucks.

When you read his stats he sounds like Mike Anderson.

I love me some Derek Wolfe!

Try having a Raiders fan for a son in law. Brings my grandkids over in Raider gear and they are getting old enough to talk smack to me. And since they are old enough to do that Grandma has started saying some very cruel things about their choice of teams.

phibacka31 04-18-2013 11:58 AM

I just want the Broncs to draft a Power RB... I really don't care who too much just get one. RB is one position that we don't look that good on. I also, really hope we pick up another WR to bump Caldwell or Willis outta here. We are only 3 deep as others have pointed out...(AND I HAD HOPE FOR BUBBA)

If we had a Mike Anderson type last season we'd have a new Lombardi.

If this happens I would go Requiem on the board.

The opinions of draft analysts vary widely on Bell, who left MSU as the seventh-leading rusher in school history despite playing only three seasons. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. predicts Bell will be drafted in the third or fourth round.

Joyner says Bell is overrated because while he gains a lot of yards after contact, he does so because he isn't fast enough to avoid contact.

"This showed up in the four games the Spartans played against teams that ended the season ranked in the top 25 in rushing yards allowed per game last season," Joyner writes. "In those contests, Bell carried the ball 89 times and gained only 332 yards, totals that equate to a mediocre 3.7 yards per carry."

I'm sure this is going to only get worse in the NFL.

I agree that is bad for you, but the Raiders have been bad for a long time. The little ones clearly is only talking smack about things that had happened 30 to 40 years before they where born. My brothers on the other hand, have had way more success then the Dodgers. 1988 was a long time ago :rofl:

Le'Veon Bell or go to Hell. That is my 2013 NFL Draft Motto.

And you don't think that it might have something to do with the line that Bell was playing behind? They had injuries and lineup changes all year long. I'm not as big on Bell as most around here, but stats like that are worthless.
