Well maybe another season of excuses for Knowshon will make us all feel better. I am positive there is something out of his control that will keep him from being great again!

He is the only RB that gets to use this excuse. An old wore out Willis M beat his ass out and looked 1000x better. MJD didn't exactly play in a great system and led league in rushing. I'm tired of slowshon excuses. If he shows nothing tomorrow night he needs to get the hook.

fumBall because of one dropped ball last week in a preseason game. I'll bet he has less fumbles per carry than Moreno.

FumBall fumbles once every 37.5 times. Moreno fumbles every 58 carries so you're wrong.

I was speaking of the poster who calls everyone pro McD if you don't agree with him. I call him Jizz so much that I forgot his user name. CLose to Jizz so luckily, I forgot most of him.

SERIOUS TRADE WINDS Swirling! We're talking given up high pick for SERIOUS Vet/Starter!.. these deals often crumble n don't reach completion

Reports are it's NOT MJD

Maybe he wants to trade for Manning.. It seems like the sort of thing he might try. If MethWolfe had a brother on the roster named PotWolfe, i would be willing to bet Irsay wold fork over Andrew Luck and half his record collection for him.

Exactly dude. He is a damn fine back but 7th year in the league wanting a huge contract doesn't = 1st round pick. I would do a 2nd round pick in a heart beat but not a 1st.

Noshow has nothing on Willis. McGahee is 5x the runner noshow is. I'm not being hard on the guy, it's that Willis just knows where to go and gets there and noshow doesn't. PEROID

You do realize that 25 other teams would have to pass on grant. Before we could claim him. right?

Better we keep Oman

That's a blatant lie. He has 18 career TDs.

I'm sure he cleared waivers months ago. Packers sent him packing after the season.

Hey I'm just reading what PO said.

http://predominantlyorange.com/2012/...against-49ers/

Where they say 18, they said 6 before. Then edited it. If you click on this article from their IPhone app it says 6, go to their sight from google it says 18.

Are you a Tanahan lover

Must be if your whining about two clear cut starters and 3 starters of the future. Consider none of them had an off season and had new schemes and terms to learn. Typical.
The point is not "contributing". The point is "contributing to the extent MJD would contribute". We are not going to be picking at #2 next year, so a guy like Miller isn't the question. It's this:

What are the chances the Broncos are going to draft a guy next year in any round that is ever going to be better than MJD is right now? People over-value draft picks big time around here and, given our history, it's pretty laughable. I could understand if this was a fanbase of some team that had a great track record of solid drafting, but it couldn't be further from that. Our history says that unless they're picked in the top 10, they have about a 1% chance of ever making a probowl, much less being one of the two or three best at his position for several years.

Sorry thought someone said he was on Az team and would be cut. Since I do not drool over many other NFL players other than Broncos. My apologies.

Yes he is contrubuting now but will he have one or two more years in those legs..

Myself I want future not today and tomorrow..
If this was a running league and more importantly a running team then I might be swayed a bit..

About since we have manning and not Tebow I see more yards via the air than on the ground..regardless that Fox Likes runners..

We have more needs than a today RB.. Sorry but that Is how I see it.. My money is being spent on someone that ODDS are will be around more than two years.

I hated tanahans personnel disorder.

But believe that teams are built via the draft we all a know that Mikey's track record sucked donkey ball ..

But there is a new sheriff inn town with REAL coaches now not the ass clowns that mikey had.

guys that have a say in who comes to the team via the draft..

Until John fubars a few round 1-3 guys wi have confidence in him..
He is not Mikey the guy that whiffed on 35 guys in those rounds during his time in Denver..

Again if the Jags are not willing to spend the money and they know him why would anyone else do it..


BTW it is Johns pick on this one and I just can't see it happening so why so may folks have their panties in a was is beyond me..

AZ has Alphonso Smith, William Powell, Wells, Stevens-Howling and Ryan Williams. I can't see them keeping them all. I think William Powell is going to be pretty good.

I know but I think they should send Ball/Moreno down the road and sign the cast off from AZ and keep Omon.
