Talent was never a concern, he is a beast physically

Just cant stay healthy

However I hope he sticks because in a rotation I think he can do some work

1st round talent, hopefully he stays healthy this season.

Moreno + Torain + Hillis = Success on offense

not wishing injury on the guy. But what is the over/under on the amount of practices he gets through before injury knocks him out of the lineup?

If Torain did get to a high level, and Moreno was real deal, that would be huge for Broncos.

IMO we already know Hillis a load at FB or RB so he compliments both of them well.

Throw in Buckhalter and Jordan as the vet contributers and the RB could be deep and productive this yr.

Still I would rather one guy look so good you give him ball 20 plus times a game.

if he's "stealing" carries from those guys, that means he is better than them on that play.

A lot of 2 TE and 3 WR sets. When they went with 2 backs, Hillis and Larsen were the FBs.

Dont speak too soon.....should the rash of injuries that devastated our running back corp last season raises its ugly head in 09 Jordan will be a welcome addition.

Superman does good.

People -- and Torain -- do well.

Also: Josina Anderson's Twitter scares me. I don't want a disease.

We should showcase Torain as much as we can and then trade him if we can get anything decent.

I hear San Diego has a nice box of rocks they are looking to unload. I think if we put Torain and $5 on the table, they'd give us a box of rocks....perhaps

I seriously hope everyone is joking about stealing carries, etc.

If not, you obviously did not watch last year...nobody stole carries, we couldn't GIVE them away

we couldn;t get anything for him.

at most all we could get is a conditional 7th. and with Mr Glass here, it is all but guaranteed that he won;t reach the playing time necessary for us to get that pick

id hope that buckhalter and jordan are the odd ones out, given we have much more youth at the position who have a higher ceiling earlier in their career...though having all these guys back there would be nice knowing well get production from all of em.

This has to be the most breathtakingly dumb post I have ever read in the history of the OrangeMane.
