TD was a very special back but also we had a great blocking team. TD was over 100 yards before half-time in quite a few games. It was indeed a dominant run team. I'm sure Elway remembers that. He remembers how good he was but then how it wasn't quite good enough on it's own to win it all. There had to be that great run game. I fully expect the Broncos to select 2 RB's in this draft and I imagine one of them will be a top 3 pick.
