Not dogging anybody. Just saying he's looking great. This is also evidence that if you contemplate OVERDRAFTING a position where the annual career expectancy is 4 and half years, you're pretty foolish. Waste of resources.

They are playing well. We would have been smarter to take an offensive linemen at 12 last year and save our draft pick we blew on Quinn to draft Greene.

Hey, best of both worlds eh?

Yep the Jets owner and fans had to endure a couple of lossing seasons inorder to draft high enough to build up their OL.

These Jets sure werent having 8-8, 9-7, or 7-9 seasons over the last 4 or 5 years while building the the best OL in the NFL.

Can the Broncos fans endure some 3-5 win seasons over the next 2 or 3 years in order to draft high enough some great OL men?

We can't talk about what was. We can only talk about what is.

Shonn Greene is a better pure HB than Knowshon, built for power and his game is tailor made for the NFL. He was also selected two rounds later.

A majority of us said this would be the case. Still hurts to watch though.

Oh well. Come on Richard Quinn. We need you to have more catches next season, than trial dates.

Give credit to that oline - on that long run he wasn't TOUCHED until the broken tackle...that is some nice blocking.

Are you trying to say Greene would have done as well on the Broncos?

What you are watching is great oline play combined with a speedy back with some power.

Jets gets a push and win the battle of LOS just like Titans.

I would venture to say that Knowshon doesn't have 1/2 the tackle breaking ability Greene has... and Shonn is what, 15 lbs heavier and has a much better second gear.

Striking.

Well the firing sure woke him up. He probably dosen't take that same arrogance with him the Wash.

Now here's hoping McD can see thru his own arrogance over the next 2 or 3 years.

I'm saying that Greene would have easily had 1000 yds AND Buckhalter would have just been a 3rd down back.

Shonn Greene is the better NFL back. Knowshon is a 3rd down back.

It's a Earl Campbell vs. Sammie Winder comparison.

Kinda makes you wonder what good does it have to let your proven players leave the team for 1st round picks, when your may have a problem striking gold with their 1st round picks b/c they can't evaluate talent in the first place.

If the 1st round talent we draft don't turn out to pro ball talent like the pro bowlers we let leave the team....then its Denver that the long term losser.

McD's a young coach and learning each day. Shanahan knows better with all his experience. He was too comfortable in his position. Whether he has learned from it has yet to be determined.

I've always thought this about drafting RB's so high. Espeacially with our historic success of not haivng to use high picks to aquire RB talent.

Being inexperienced is no excuse for behaving stubbornly and having a Hey look at me attitude and ego is no excuse and does not set a good precedence with your players.! Whether McD has learned from all his screw ups from his first season has yet to be determined.

Its no fluke that McD's players quit on him during the 20 point loss (44-24) to the lowly KC's. The team sent McD a message that its a 50/50 proposition and compromise if you want to win in the NFL. I think McD got the message.
