    I would think of all fan bases the Denver fan base wouldn't be clamoring for running backs. Denver showed the NFL how a successful running game is built. You don't go out and get RB's you get lineman.

    Terrell Davis
    Mike Anderson
    Rueben Droughnes
    Olandis Gary
    Tatum Bell
    Clinton Portis

    All played from 95-05, all saw a good amount of success, all played behind very good Olines. Get linemen to fix your running game, not running backs.
    The football gods gives you a standing ovation. Bill Parcells gives you a thumbs up.

      This is why I think Dallas may have some success this year and years to come. They have invested heavily into the OL.

      I would like to see us start investing in the OL.
      1995 +, Denver went out and signed Zimmerman, Schlereth, Jones and developed Nalen. What an investment.

        This organization has invested in the Oline...it just hasn't worked out for them. Perhaps the could use better coaches
        The difference between now and 1995 +, we went out and signed 3 known entities at OL. We probably whiffed as much on the draftees then as now.
