I'd actually like to thank Ben for his guts, determination and teamwork as a Bronco. The guy was a true pro, served us well and came back and battled hard for his job after numerous concussions which would've ended the average player's career.

Yeah I agree, Hamilton was damn good in our zone blocking scheme. Best of luck to a class individual and a good player.

You'll be missed, Ben, but it was time for us to move on. I hope Gibbs can bring you back from the dead.

Is "ego" in Ben's case a euphemism for bad offensive lineman who allowed more penetration then a hooker working fleet week?

Good luck to him he always played hard for the Broncos.

He's just too small though in todays NFL. Once they limited how you could cut block, when you could cut block, gibbs style sort of lost 300-400 yrds a yr.

Whoa...You do know that he's no longer a Bronco?







I didn't like Ben as a Bronco. He got pushed around and needed protection way too much for me. But, I wish him well and the best of luck!

McDaniels is killing this team, I really cant take much more.

He was our last great player, huge mistake.

He was good for a long time. But his time here was well and truely at an end. He shouldn't have been out there for the last few years for us imo.

But I always like the way he fought.

Not to mention the SHARP decline in the play of Clady when Ben got pulled from the lineup.

He played well in the ZBS, I hope he lives a long full life concussions are a b****.

It is hard to fault a player when a coach decides not to use a system that takes advantage of his skill set. Hamilton gave the Power scheme his best and didn't complain.
