I'd rather the Broncos bring in Mendenhall than Shonn Green...

True, but all they need is an RB like Lacy to make it back to the SB. They already have Jermichael Finley at TE.

I remember him being all over Lamar Miller last year. Said we should take him IF he was available with our first round pick.

Its ok though. Those guys have laid off the high school morning style DJ crap and now they just talk Broncos 24/7/365. And they're fun too, because DMac does his homework and calls Al out on his crap constantly.

One of my favorites was last year when they were discussing their fantasy drafts. Dmac asks Al about his team and Al say "I love my team I got 5 quarterbacks." Dmac just starts laughing his ass off at him. Starts reading him texts from fans wanting Al in their leagues. Then Al just has enough and says "man, come on man, people don't wanna here about our fantasy teams they wanna hear about real football." And Dmac just lost it. Had me rolling.

Big Al and DMAC are pretty much unbearable at this point.

I don't care if Beavis and Butthead were talking about the Broncos 24/7, I would tune in. Big Al and DMac are Broncomaniacs just like us, so it's all good.

Your high dude. Mendenhall has no vision or feel at all. The dude is a beefed up track star just looking for daylight when he runs. Not to mention, one that can't stay healthy really. I would steer clear of Mendenhall.

Yeah I do like Green, but I'm just saying what Alfred said on the radio today. He loves his toughness. He's only been in the league 3 years so he doesn't have a ton of miles on him either. I think he's saying who he would like to have to replace KM and WM via FA but he's also stating that we need to spend a few picks on some backs, and he gave his favorites. Not sure if he didn't like Lacy or just felt like we don't have a realistic shot at him, and then went on from there. Just because there's not a ton of guys on a forum who like Greene doesn't mean there aren't teams high on him.

But I really feel like better blocking by the line will help our run game the most. There's no AP in the draft, at least it doesn't appear so. We were not the best at run game blocking and I think that has to improve no matter who's toting the rock for us.

my thought is don't let him anywhere near the front office.
you have to keep one of KM or WM. then that leaves you one vet, Hillman and then a draft pick to vie for carries and a big role.

I'd still take Mendenhall over Green.

I'll bet you $100,000,000,000 Manning has a no trade clause in his contract.

Is there another S. Greene? Or are you talking about the RB that has never had a run over 36 yards.. That S.Greene?

Lacy is by far his favorite back in the draft and he doesn't think he'll be around when we pick.

You just get the feeling Lacy and some of the others are good rbs, but just not so good they improve the team more then a good interior olineman or DT would. None of the rbs seem like special players.

I like Warford more and more when i watched tape of him stonewalling richardson and Shariff Floyd when he face their teams. Larry Warford should be a Bronco!

Lacy could be a really productive guy but it seems like scouts wonder if hes tough enough. I guess he didn't really carry the ball that much. That could be a good thing though not so much wear and tear. Then also it could be because he had like 3 pro ready olineman on his team. Maybe they see him running through holes so big you don't really know what he is made of yet?

Christine Michael, make it happen !! Great potential for an explosive and powerful back. He was limited in action because of the qb in Texas A&M running the ball.

Do you really get advice from Big Al? He changes his opinion every single day. Tomorrow the list will be completely different and then when one breaks out as a rookie he will tell everyone he told them so.

They were all over Lamar Miller because Cecil Lammey kept claiming that the Broncos loved Miller and would probably take him in the 1st or 2nd round.

The Dolphins are probably going to let Bush go because they feel Miller will be able to step up and be their starter.

If we're going to throw out names like Mendenhall and Greene, I'd rather just keep Knowshon and Willis.

Greene is good. Mendenhall for the love of god please no. Too overrated, and a ****ty runningback.

I'm not super hi on Mendenhall but he's got one thing greene does not--speed. Mendenhall has not panned out the way the stellers wanted him to, he's had some injuries and he also has a little bit of fumblitis. But when he's been healthy he's been productive and yes, he's got speed.
