    Freeman has the rookie wall coming in week 13, that’s 1.5 college seasons, most rookies, especially rbs can’t handle the rigors out of the gate, they need Henderson this year, cutting him would be a significant self inflicted wound. The mix will be Choopy, it always is when you have two rookies and a first year guy in the mix.

    The team is not a real contender, just accept the flaws from Horsefacer GMs roster constructing

    9-7 ishfor a long time

      Not that special in season because they had him inactivated almost every week. When he got his chance against KFC he looked much like he did in preseason.

        Uh...he had 7 carries last year. What were you looking for from that?

          Freeman averaging 5.6 ypc and straight beasting it.
          Booker running like a blind man into his lineman for 3.6 ypc.

          GTFO!
          Pass protection is just as important as running. I am guessing Booker starts until Freeman can pick up the blitzes. Nice overreaction though

            Ya those are some stupid fans. Dumb to think it can happen each year.


            I remember people blasting other fans who liked Harris before he was “found”. Was stupid to believe CJ could do anything!
            All the points you've made to this point are either unjustified generalizations based on exceptional examples, or completely irrelevant comparisons.

            - Running backs "across the league" don't need good offensive lines.

            - The Broncos have had "several late round UDFA turn into gems" ergo fans fawning over garbage time stats = totally justified.

            Utter nonsense.

              i hadn't heard that. interesting. he looks chubby now actually. bummer. I really like watching him run.

              i'm gonna give booker a clean slate. he's run behind horrible lines and multiple coordinators. let's see if he can rebound his career.

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

                    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.

                      Henderson looks a lot slower this preseason than he did last. Whether that's on him or the coaches I'm not sure but I haven't seen anything this preseason to make me excited about his play. Whether they keep him, Booker or both they both look like average Joe's out there.

                        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.

                            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.

                              This thread is the typical amatuer GM/HC over reaction on the Mane. Such outrage at this decision. Entertainment for some.

                                Has he played behind anything other than the No. 3 OL. I have seen him make some tough yards in the preseason when there wasn't much in front of him. It is a bit of a mystery why his play hasn't flashed as it has before.
