If you think Koppen is the greatest thing since sliced bread, you are crazy. He was New England's 4th Center (whom they cut), and isn't very good at run blocking anymore.
...but I'm sure the Broncos coacihng staff is wrong, and you are right.
Where did I say that Koppen was the greatest thing since sliced bread? I said that our line was greatly improved when Walton went out. Facts are facts. It has more to do with Walton than Koppen.
The Broncos coaching staff had to give Koppen time to learn the system. Koppen wasn't at training camp. He wasn't signed until after the first game. We have no idea if the coaching staff was going to make a change at center or not before the injury. There's a reason they brought in Koppen after Walton played in the preseason and the first regular season game. Try to keep up.
