Default Hell has frozen over: Jamie Dukes picks a Bronco as his 2010 Breakout Player

Anyone see this on NFL Total Access? Dukes picked Knowshon as his breakout player in the NFL season saying he's a complete back, an unhearlded back. Thinks the team will need all of his talents. This leading Michael Lombardi to saying, he's going to have to take his temperature, a positive thought about Denver - that's amazing!

I'm not sure how a team can have a breakout running back and be projected to go 3-13 or whatever Dukes keeps spouting off. To me, this just proves that he isn't consistent and that he's only there to say wild things to get people talking.

All it proves is Jamie dukes is smarter about knowshon than half this board. That's hysterical when you think about it.

It is a set up...or he actually watched some tape...or he is piggy backing off something he read from a someone who knows football.

Naw, it shows that even a blind squirrel will eventually find a nut.

In fact after hearing this, I'm worried this could mean Moreno's career is over.

Not conflicting really ... the Lions went 4-12 year after year with the best back in the league.

Sanders had 3 5-11 seasons (92, 96, 98) and most of his other seasons he had Detroit competing for the playoffs. I understand your point, but Dukes has consistently stated that the Broncos are terrible, traded all their best players, and couldn't win an intrasquad scrimmage.

Now apparently, Knowshon is a good enough player to be his breakout player?

Detroit made the playoffs in 1991, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997, 1999. Sanders played 10 years. Made the playoffs 60% of the time.

He is right about Knowshon. I have bile in my throat saying Dukes is right about anything, but it is true. look at last season had the line kept guys from getting to him behind the LOS or at the LOS he would have had much bigger numbers. He was something like top 3 in the league in yards after initial contact, which means if his line can open some holes for him and allow him to get through the LOS before he is touched he has the talent to make people miss and break tackles and up his YPC average.

Sorry I was off but it was still a megga beatdown:

In 1995, they lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, in an embarrassing fashion, 5837 (entering the fourth quarter, they were down 5121). In 1997, Detroit lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first round. In 1999, the Lions closed out the decade reaching the playoffs for the sixth time in a ten-year span, which is a franchise record for playoff appearances during a decade. However, they lost yet again in the first round, this time to the Washington Redskins. Detroit's 1999 playoff berth also marked the second time in Bobby Ross's first three years as head coach that he led the Lions into the postseason. The last Lions head coach to accomplish that feat was Buddy Parker, in 195253 during his second and third seasons at the helm.

They may have made the playoffs 6 times in 10 years but they were one and done.

I dont think we were arguing playoff success. Detroit was good enough to make the playoffs with Barry Sanders, countering the thought that he stuggled for years on bad teams that never got close enough to make the playoffs in the first place.

No one remembers Sanders made the playoffs frequently with Detroit. All they remember is that before Sanders Detroit sucked and after Sanders Detroit sucked so they assumed because they are mostly ****ing idiots, that Detroit sucked with Sanders, which is not the case at all.

Holy poop-face, You're right! They made it several times during that time. Granted it was as a wild card, but for the Lions that's like going to the Super Bowl.

Well that settles it: Brandon Marshall sucks.

If you looked at knowshon's highlight video posted in a thread earlier, one thing I noticed was the LG got beat or was pushed back on every play. This year, even with a rookie, things will be better.

Yes, remember every year they were gonna fire Wayne Fontes, but then they snuck in the playoffs and they never could get rid of him.

What with all the incessant (though transient) ballyhooing over "team" on this board, one might assume the collective conscious could put two and two together and conceive of a scenario in which one player is great, but the team isn't.
