    the broncos used TE to fill the FB role with success last week.
    If LINDSEY gets 20 + touches I predict a victory for our broncos.
    if lock throws more than 35 times we lose.

    Denver's run game has struggled the past few weeks. Janovich's presence is missed and the shuffling on the OL (due to injuries) has impacted both Freeman and Lindsay's effectiveness. That being said, Freeman isn't ever going to be a dynamic player, but he is on pace for 1,000 APY this season. Lindsay's already hit 1,000 APY and is having another solid season. I'm all for adding competition, but it doesn't need to be a priority. Day 3 prospect is fine.

    Have and extra body there to block and to pick up the blitz.
    We've tried and done it this season but it’s been a joke to watch!
    Jano was a beast at picking up the blitz, and also lead blocking. When he went down, it definitely hurt our running game some.

    If he can do that effectivly he will play on sunday, and not just special teams.

    You don't even have to draft RB. You can bring in a pile of UDFA and waiver wire guys that were squeezed out due to talent ahead of them.

    This.

    the entire composite of the manes followers fails to come close to the PASSION and COMMITMENT of John Freakin' ELWAY !
    You may not like some of his choices, but he is relentless in his pursuit of another LOMBARDI

    Sure they were, in college. So was Freeman. He even set school records. Much different when you get to the pro level. Dillion is not going to be a starting RB in the NFL next year. He'll be stuck on special teams somewhere as he tries to earn a spot on a team.

    He was good at times, but there's no consistency. Maybe if the line was better he would be more assertive. But AJ Dillon or Helaire are just tackle breaking machines.

    I could never quite sell myself on Royce as a prospect, although with RBs it's easy to tell yourself "yeah, could seeing him being productive at the next level" with 15 guys every draft. He was just a weird evaluation with how frequently he was running into wide open space and not having to show off anything special.

    Reminds me of every time I see a highly recruited high school RB's highlight tape. Looks good, but can you really tell?

    Freeman strikes me as the Type who needs a rhythm. When he had more carries last year he was better. There’s been games where he’s only had 3-5 carries this year. Comes in cold.
