Much of what I have been reading here on MHR the past few weeks strikes me as being to confident. Let’s be real. Honestly…
Knowshon had his best year in 2013. What is so exciting about replacing an experienced player with a 2nd year player? Now, I like Montee. Yet, is it realistic to think Montee will block as good as or better than Knowshon? is it realistic to think Montee will catch 60 + passes out of the backfield for an average of at least 9.1 yards each reception? Will Montee run for over 1,038 yards?
None of know what Montee Ball or CJ Anderson will do. We really hope they will be able to match and surpass Moreno’s play. Think back in Bronco history. When was the last time we had a running back rush for more than a 1,000 yards?
Remember Mike Anderson?
Anderson was a Bronco five years yet he only rushed for more than a 1,000 in 2000 and 2005. What about Clinton Portis? Clinton was a great rusher! Portis rushed for 1,508 yards in 2002 and 1,591 in 2003. This was so long ago Shannon Sharp was on the roster.
The Bronco’s are do for a great rusher… Great rushers are not a dime a dozen! We should know that. It has been a decade or more since we have enjoyed a great rusher. So again, I ask, what is so exciting about Montee Ball replacing Knowshon Moreno? Not resigning Moreno was a Dumervil size mistake if Ball and Anderson don’t cut it…
Zane Beadles is gone! Beadles was a five year / 80 game starter that played excellently. Will someone please explain how this absence makes our OL better?
What is so exciting about Emanuel Sanders replacing Eric Decker? We lost a great player and signed a good player.
What is so exciting about Talib Aquib replacing DRC?
Up until this point the Bronco losses and gains are almost equal with the exceptions of the Loss of Zane Beadles and the gain of DeMarcus Ware for Shane Phillips and the addition of safety TJ Ward.
DeMarcus Ware may make a big difference. TJ Ward will make a difference… This difference maybe great if they can stay healthy and return to form... So
The ONLY excite I see at this time (April of 2014) is Perhaps the return of Miller, Wolfe, Harris and other injured players and the potential surge of 2nd year players… And this is plenty to be excited about.
Maybe on On May 10th I maybe excited about the players the Broncos draft. I hope so! The FO is difficult to predict.
What excites you?
