    one fumble is worth how many yards. Teams will take 3.5 yrds a carry with no fumbles over 5 yrds a carry but you put the ball on the ground.

    Charles kept fumbling, that is why they stopped giving him the ball.

    IDK. He's a rookie. I could see the staff thinking a little time this week will be valuable for him whether or not he's the starter.

    He played with the 2nd team against the Skins.

    He had a decent game and overall I do think he is better than Booker, but he doesn't look special like he did last year and I didn't see the quick cuts that he was making last preseason that had us all so excited. At the end of the day I don't have very high hopes for either.

    wtf is going on in here?!?!?

    I thought it wasn't a good sign when a veteran plays in the 4th pre-season game

    Bingo. That’s why I’m not worried about it. Freeman will get his carries day 1, and eventually start. That should be obvious to anyone paying attention. Also, it’s very possible that Elway is showcasing Booker for a trade. Maybe, maybe not, but you never know.
    This thread is the typical amatuer GM/HC over reaction on the Mane. Such outrage at this decision. Entertainment for some.

    Who cares the season is 16 games and all RBs get hurt throughout seasons. We need Freeman fresh going into late into the year. WTF cares about week 1 only.

    Freeman definitely looks like the best RB on the roster.

    Booker and Henderson look like any other depth RB. I really don't care if they keep one or the other.

    Should they cut or trade Hop Henderson and decide to keep Booker and/or Lynch then that lets us know the broncos are making roster decisions on something other than talent and on field production.

    It would be really frustrating as a fan to watch them release someone with more talent. Can you imagine what it would be like from the players perspective to watch them drop the more talented guys and keep dead weight? That wouldn’t motivate me to work harder. Not trying to over react before the cards are flipped, but that’s how a coach loses the locker room.

    Of course there could always be something behind the scenes driving the decision like the Talib situation but nothing like that has been reported of Hop.

    I still have my fingers crosssed that it’s all a charade to try and move Booker and not Henderson. By sitting him we show other teams we think he can be a starter. Even though film is valuable, any trade partners perception of our evaluation of the player is perhaps more important because we spend all day with the guy. Which is why we won’t get **** for Lynch.. his demotion tells other teams we think he sucks.

    So? He made a play, which is something Booker never does.
