Why is everyone so certain McGahee will all of a sudden suck this year? Or is just that Jackson is straight up better?

Jackson is a beast. You put a killer air game together with a monster run game and it adds up to 97-98

Thread title sucks. I see nothing about targeting, only rumors with no sources. Speculation.

I agree we need to improve the running game. Its so bad that I like our chances on 3rd and 5 more than when we have 3rd and 1. Just don't think a running back going into his 10th year will give us what we need.

Can get that with some health to Chris Kuper, a center, and either Montee Ball, Stepfan Taylor, or giving Jeremiah Johnson a shot.

I just don't see how the guy adds anything that Willis McGahee doesn't already give us. Less fumbles maybe.

The biggest one in many eyes is whether or not RB Willis McGahee is the answer in 2013.

This is where RB Steven Jackson comes into the talks.

Yes or No ?

I like the Idea. I like big power backs. Sounds like a lot of if's though.
Urrr, Mark J. Rebilas is the photographer genius. Rant Sports is nonsense.

I like JJ also but I guess the coaching staff just isn't super high on him, otherwise he would have got his shot this past season with several injuries to our RB's.

I think Jackson is better then McGahee but I think they could have both to be honest. At McGahee's age and injury status, I don't think you would see many teams looking to bring him in and his value with his age and injuries is going to drive his price way down. So much so I think the Broncos could hold on to him.

I would be very comfortable going into next season with Jackson, McGahee, Moreno and Hillman. Dump Hester and draft some sleeper in the late rounds, you never know.

This way you can spend your higher picks on both O/D lines since this draft should be pretty deep in both areas. Get some big boys in here and improve these lines.

I don't think he will suck. He was doing well until he got injured. So he had a few too many fumbles, he'll fix that. I actually like him on the team but I like the idea of adding a Jackson or Greene to the mix, along with Hillman and Moreno. I like what these guys bring. Just more safety by adding a high quality back to our stable. I think Jackson is a little better then McGahee for a few reasons. He's faster and bigger, that's a deadly combination. I think McGahee has better vision and feet but Jackson breaks more arm tackles and is probably a bigger threat to take one to the house. He would be your starter, with McGahee and Moreno getting plenty of time and Hillman still working into the mix.

That's one way to go. The other would be clean house at RB and draft 2 more guys and go with them and Hillman. Big risk to take when you have that small 2 year window with Manning. I'd have McGahee and Moreno take pay cuts, sign a Jackson or Greene for a good price and work with those 4 guys the next few years. Of course, as I said before, spend a 5th or 6th pick on a back and see what you can find, you never know, you might just find the next Terrell Davis.

Steven Jackson is a significant upgrade to Willis, Moreno, and Hillman.

I'd have no issue signing Jackson for a reasonable amount. The guy is still running well even though he's about to hit 30.

Very true. Think hoe one sided that trade would of been. Denver could of had best CB in the league and best back out of the draft. It really pissed me off that Shanny passed on Jackson after he fell to Denver.

That would be a mistake,not only would he have to learn the NFL,but also learn how to play with manning. He'd barely see the field.
I would use the draft on defense & use fa for offense.

That is way too much you Liberal Kiddie!

I would spread it out over longer, maybe offer him 5 years at 15 mill, with a chunk guaranteed.

I hope we can find a solid running back who has vision, quickness and can take a pounding somewhere in the 2nd or 3rd round.

I think Willis is a liability with his fumbling and the fact he misses too many games every year. I think either Willis or KM needs to go if they want to save some cap space, KM's hit is over 3mil this year. If we got Jackson I would cut/trade both KM and McGahee and rely on Hillman and whomever we draft. Though it would be a nice luxury to have Willis splitting carries with Jackson. I dunno Req, lets go get wrecked!
