Dang, most of you were pretty sour on the Lendale signing. What gives? What has Kolby Smith ever done to warrant all the remorse for this roster move? Nothing, I'd say. In fact, it's been years since I've seen good use of a running back in Denver (or even in Houston, where I follow the Texans).
Okay, Lendale isn't the second coming of TD. But he's a big body with quicks, so if he keeps in shape and makes good effort, there's lots of upside. A few years ago, the Texans cut Ron Dayne, even though he consistently gained 4 yards per play and WORE DOWN defenses by the 4th quarter. Lendale has potential to do that, provided Josh doesn't act like Jim Bates and "de-emphasize" the running game. Give 'em hell, Lendale. You, too, Toney Baker. And Buck and Knowshon.
