You'd rather see your mom back there getting the **** kicked out of her, rather than KM keeping a roster spot.

Seriously dude. I'm almost never around here lately but when I am, I see you talking about cutting KM.

She'd break off 2k in this system. Assuming she will restructure for Doom that is.

Exactly. Wonder which one they're planning on getting rid of.

hopefully both. McGahee has served his time and is cooked like dinner. KnoShow just isn't worth the roster spot. Get Mendenhall, draft Le'Veon Bell and use Hillman.

Hope he doesn't drop the pen.


Anyway, I'm sure Der Gaffo will love him.

I guess he's a decent buy low guy, but he's not exactly much of a receiver out of the backfield. Considering Manning has used running backs with receiving ability for huge success in the past (James, Addai), why wouldn't we equip him with someone more versatile? That's why I still think Reggie Bush would be great. But if they sign Mendenhall, i certainly wouldnt sign him for much. He's a headcase who barely played last season. As said, decent buy low candidate, but thats all.

Mendenhall meeting with Cardinals so it is far from official that he will be a Bronco.

Mendenhall still a young player. He may still have better seasons ahead.

Rashard Mendenhall | RB Previous Team: Pittsburgh Exp: 4 years

Analysis: Mendenhall told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he's visiting the Cardinals on Tuesday and flying to Denver to meet with the Broncos on Wednesday. Yahoo! Sports reports Mendenhall is being wooed aggressively by the Dolphins, according to a source familiar with the player's situation.

Or a lot of people appreciate a back who consistently puts up 1K seasons with ****ty OLs and no pass threat to compliment him (and up until recently a defense that gave up so many points the offense had to go into pass heavy mode by early to mid-second half weekly).

Oh, and that same guy is a proven pass pro stud, who also has some great receiving seasons for an RB under his belt.

All around the exact solution Denver needs. He'd be a short term solution to be sure, but he'd still be a massive upgrade for 2-3 seasons.

Mendenhall is another team's Knowshon Moreno. First round RB who's had some worthwhile games but hasn't proven himself to be 1. healthy and 2. productive enough when healthy to sign past his rookie deal.

Only real differences are that Mendenhall is an a-hole and Moreno can catch, which makes him a better fit for the Manning offense.

Rep. But I was told by a poster on the Mane that Jackson has never been a difference maker in 9 years and that the Rams offensive line is above-average or at least middle of the pack. . .

I live in St. Louis. The Rams would already have a new stadium picked out in L.A. if Jackson hadn't been here over the last 9 years.

He's the modern day Floyd Little. You'd think Bronco fans of all people would respect what he's been doing for the duration of his career to this point. Now that the Rams are finally looking decent they want to go young, doesn't mean Jackson can't come in, have a 3:1 carry split with Hillman, and be a massive addition to this offense.

I agree on all points. I can still remember his 1,500 + yard and 90 catch season. I mean, wtf. How many backs catch 90 balls? He almost had 1,500 yards rushing and 1,000 receiving. I don't know if that ever happened, but it was one of the most impressive all-around performances by an NFL player in an entire season. They don't have a Pace/Timmerman anymore though. Wherever Jackson goes, I wish him the best. Hopefully he gets a ring because I honestly believe he is HOF worthy, especially if he can put up two more 1,000 yard years. Every bit as deserving as Curtis Martin.

Jackson takes the Broncos to the SB.

Mendenhall? To press conference after press conference discussing what a ****head he is and why the crucial fumble, etc.

Huh? That doesn't even make sense. Are you trying to say that he hasn't done anything since 2008? Statistically, 2008 was actually a down year for him.

Steven Jackson has averaged 1,211 rushing yards and 340 receiving yards from 2009-2012. Boy, he really sucks.

Agreed. Mendy is a mess. Jackson has some serious fuel in the tank still and would really bust it playing for a winner.
