    So put you down for Booker? There is no rationale for booker. He’s the one who needs more reps.


    Fans got it right last preseason. It’s a good thing they dumped a young prospect with potential for a vet who did absolutely nothing at QB.. also ideal to keep a player with great cutting ability and some potential on the bench all year, for booker, assuring massive 3 and outs.

    It’s a good idea to open Freeman up to injury with reps of bad players on the field,

    Freeman is starting the 4th preseason game, not Booker. Booker is one of 22 players(VJ called them "the starters") not dressing for this game.

    Freeman is clearly superior, what gives?
    I'm still not even sure why Booker is on the frking team let alone our starter. I read an article today about how the Broncos are looking to trade Henderson who looked tons better than worthless Booker and Holland. I realize coaches are smarter than we the fans and we have no clue how to evaluate talent but good Lord this is like Lynch all over again...forcing guys to play who can't just sucks.

    Freeman is a higher draft pick than Booker, so not sure why you think that has any relevance?

    Ah...well that's just ****ed. Same stupidity led us to Lynch and Osweiler on the roster while Sloter went to the Vikings. These guys are straight dumbasses.

    OP I talked about it in this thread. To the dismay of a few who felt offended by my large whining about VJ.



    It starts to get good around page 3

    This really isn’t hard to figure out. The other backs are three rookies and a second year guy who has barely played. As much as people seem to ignore it, coaches league-wide talk about how crucial it is for backs to understand protections and what to do on plays when they don’t have the ball in their hands. Inexperienced backs usually struggle at this. So, as underwhelming as Booker truly is, as the only real vet on the roster he’s probably better in those other areas by default. I wouldn’t handwring over it; if Freeman is better with the ball in his hands he’ll get the most touches even if he isn’t the official starter.

    Given the fact that you rest starters during the 4th preseason game, Booker starting the 4th preseason game...is a good sign.

    A lot of folks are having knee jerk reactions over preseason games. I'll be pissed if Booker gets more carries when the season starts. But for preseason, who cares?

    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.

    Booker is useless. Has no ability to read a potential hole or juke.

    Solution: Henderson and Holland should both make the final cut.

    Cut dead weight. Elway, are you drinking heavily again?

    This isn' t that hard.
