Default Elway can't move CJ, but he sure is trying.

This team will be better in 2018 without CJ "I just fell and am mad slapping the ball" Anderson not on it.

CJ was a good soldier, but a very overrated runningback in Bronco lore.

Overrated?

He was never supposed to be Ezekiel Elliot. He was an undrafted rookie free agent who was highly instrumental in our super bowl run. That can't be rated highly enough.

That being said, it's time for both sides to move on.

CJ has been way better than expected, and he has been good at times. But he's not a special running back. At this point I'm indifferent about them keeping or trading him.

He will be moved on draft day for a pick or picks.

It's so weird how you guys want to run a top 10 running back out of town.

CJ isnt top 10.

Freeman, DJ, Howard, Mixon, Elliot, Fournette, Hunt, Gordon, Gurley, Cook, Kamara, Ajayi, Bell, Barkley all backs i'd take over him.

Top 10? He's had 1 1000 yard season. He had a nice half season in the super bowl year, but beyond that nothing special

He had a great half season before the super bowl. He had a really nice season during the super bowl run and a real nice season last year all things considered. He’s been a great bronco. Look at the stats, they back it up

I agree. I like CJ, but understand that if the Broncos draft a RB early, they may trade or release him. I won’t blow a gasket either way.

CJ Anderson finished 9th in yards.

67 ypg average does not make a great Bronco. That is what he averaged in his best statistical season. Very average at best.

Tatum Bell and Reuben Droughns are better runners then CJ. And both of those dudes aren't in the top ten of Denver running backs.

PFF rated him as the sixth best back last season. That doesn’t necessarily prove anything either, but the two numbers together certainly present a better case than the argument that he’s a JAG.

he averaged 67 yards a game, not terrible but Denver can upgrade over him.

It proves that he's the 9th best running back in the NFL and thus a top 10 running back. No more needs to be said.

not sure it was any worse than what CJ has had his entire career.

the Mixon thing is from left field and based solely on potential imo. i watched him play last year and he looks like jag. a skinny jag without much wiggle or athleticism, but jag either way

he wasn't running through the cavernous holes he had in ou and he showed little ability to create on his own. his transition to the nfl was a bit disappointing.

not big on CJ staying or going, but he's far more accomplished and is a far better back at this point.

Sure. They can. I think you’re underestimating him based on raw numbers though. PFF rated him highly because Denver OL rated poorly against the run (23rd DVOA) and he made chicken salad out of chicken ****.
