Hester is a jack of all trades, master of none kind of back...and at least brings some power. I dont know what you guys are expecting, but i think the signing is fine.

Broncos have a virtual klan rally at the offensive skill positions.

Good move. Manning is to white Offensive players, as ketchup is to french fries.

They must not have been pleased with the game-tape that Hillman and Ball put up against the Chargers.

I'm guessing Ball is permanently deactivated before the Baltimore game. Manning never had a FB before...now he has two. strange.

Whatever wins games. If Coldplay and Mumford and Sons amps this team up more than Tupac and Kanye then so be it

Let's put things into a little perspective here....Peyton Manning probably goes for the white turkey meat at Thanksgiving dinner 9 times out of 10.

Eric Decker, Brandon Stokley, Jacob Tamme, Joel Dreessen, Zane Beadles, Dan Koppen, Chris Kuper, and Chris Gronkowski is a pretty lethal white octet....Jacob Hester gives him a white nonet....toss in Peyton Manning and the circle of diez gringos is complete.

I think that turnover against san diego was the last straw for lance ball... in even a limited role he would be mistake prone... and a guy with his limitations can ill afford making mistakes...

This puts the Broncos in a bit of a predicament when McGahee comes back. If they cut Gronkowski he will run straight to his bro to give him the low down.

I guess FWF's favorite player (Lance Ball) is the odd man out.

Time to change up the terminology and shut both of those fools out of practice.

I think a Prius is closer to white folks. Mexicans claim the compact to mid size Hondas, preferably from the 90s

Good check down guy, and somebody who can move the pile 3-4 yds. I thought he would be the best signing of the guys we brought in.

Hillman will not be the guy.

I know he cut his hair but I was hoping it was because Manning made him do it.

I think Hesters size is what they are looking at.
5-11 235lbs and can get the tough yards here and there.
DEN needs a red zone back that can get it in the end zone and get those 3rd and short conversions.

Neither. He replaces Holliday/Gronk as the OMG RB.

so since John John and Mcoy like him and wanted to spend the money on him, you think it should not have been done?
