Default Notice who's missing?

850 KOA: What do you think this offense will look like this season? Will it look like what Broncos fans saw when they watched the Colts? Will it be a combination of different personnel groups?

JE: I think there’s a misconception out there a little about Peyton in that they (the Colts) didn’t run the football in Indianapolis. When they were successful in Indianapolis, they ran the football. What we’re looking for is balance. When we won the championships back in the 90’s, we had balance. Willis McGahee had a great year last year. (Mario) Fannin, the young kid we signed as a free agent last year out of Auburn, is coming back off a knee injury in camp. (He) looks good. And then (Ronnie) Hillman, who we drafted in the third round, is a guy that has big-play ability. I think you’re still going to see good balance. I think the misconception is that Peyton throws the ball all the time but when they were winning and doing well, they were top 12 in the league in rushing.

He hasn't been able to practice yet. Why would John mention a guy that he hasn't seen practice in this offense. I'm not a knowshon supporter, but I wouldn't read a whole lot into this.

My guess is he'll make it to the final cut, and depending on how he looks in preseason and TC will determine if he makes the team or not.

I think he could be a good fit to this offense, but I wouldn't be broken hearted if he got cut either.

I'm gonna hold out final judgement til TC, but I really do not see what KnoMo can provide that other backs on roster can't provide cheaper and with a lot less wear and tear.

his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield will be important in this offense.

Plus, isn't he facing DUI charges? With a possible suspension looming, and coming off another injury, think it might be time the front office let's him go. But probably not till after training camp and the pre-season is over, in case of any injuries to other RB's.

i guess that depends on whether you think he'll contribute any value or suffer another injury. 1.7 mil is too steep for me if the guy can't come all the way back from the acl or just gets dinged again.

Fannin is another Wesley Duke until he actually does something. Megahee doesn't have much left and I am not sold Lance Ball makes the team. Moreno getting axed, especially since he isn't practicing, wouldn't surprise anyone, but I can see several scenarios where he makes the team.

Funny how we mention 1.7 mil as cheap huh? Man it would be nice to bring in that sort of cash even for 1 or 2 yrs.

Sorry, I'm still overly excited about Fannin. Can't help it. I'm doing a gatorade dump with orange koolaid right now, dreaming about the awesome Broncos running attack that is about to be unleashed all over the AFCW.

If it's his first offense, he won't be.

Moreno is a good 3rd down type back that can catch the ball out of the backfield. He will never be a #1 option running, every down running back. So, I would hope the FO will take his vaule as that, and not depend on him for any type of serious ball carrying this season if he makes the team.
