  • Broncos GM Ted Sundquist, to Mile High Sports Magazine:

    "People use Barry Sanders and Quentin Griffin in the same breath, and I think he has that type of talent."

    Apples to oranges is you ask me... I don't think he will be as good as Barry...

      Well, if he is correct, the Broncos are in good shape at RB.

          Damn, you don't let up. He's paying Q a compliment. He said "type of talent". He didn't say "Q is every bit as good as Barry" or even that he will ever be as good. The running style is there. The quick cuts and elusiveness is the same "type". If you don't agree, that's fine. Just please, please let up with the sarcasm.

            not my words or my thoughts... but I still don't think he has the same kind of talent as Barry...

              etc.....

              If Q were to break the season's rushing record, he'd just ridicule the opposition's defense. Or the weather was a factor. Or the moon was full.

              As far as the article goes, I agree that it in no way says he'll be as good as Barry.....rather, runs in the same fashion.

                Q and Barry

                It is a great compliment and Q has great potential. Let him start for a few seasons and the answer will come on the field. With the strong defense being built, can you imagine if any of the RBs run like Barry used to???

                  Also think about what that will do for Q. It'll be a massive morale booster for him (although it is phrased in a way that, if he isn't too dumb, it won't inflate his ego to Owens proportions)

                      Like Newsome makes any moves without the approval of Billick and Modell. I believe it was Billick who wanted to bring in TO. Nic move. He didn't want be on that second rate receiving corp, can't say I blame him either.

                        I've never heard anyone say that Q is as talented as Sanders, that he is "the next Sanders" or anything like that. What HAS been said, and is true, is that Q runs LIKE Sanders. He has amazing body control. The way he stops, starts and changes direction is incredible.

                        I'm to lazy to check, but I believe Q is only an inch shorter than Sanders, so they have size in common, too (if I remember corrrectly).

                        Personally, when I think of that comparison the first thing that comes to mind is that Sanders had more negative yardage plays than any back in the history of the NFL. That's a problem that is unavoidable with that style of running. Barry was talented enough to overcome it. Is Q?

                        I do remember similar statements about Dante Hall last year, especially after his run back against Denver. Yet no one is bashing Dante over those remarks.

                          UGH, i remember that run back against Denver in Week 4 if they just called one of the 12309128301283012 clips that occured... just one.....

                            The eagles and the ravens WR's were in the same bolt they both sucked, the ravens had the better TE and RB, while the eagles have a good O-line. Its a win win situation either way you look at it, he'll be the #1 WR no matter which team he would've went to.

                              No he'd probaby say he just runs in the same direction.

                              RC some of these folks are just haters because they were beat by their mommies. Abused by their older sisters, nuns cracked their knukles with ruler.

                              Remember he is to short, to small and only runs a 4.37-4.4 40 depending on which report you wish to beleive.

                              Christ, some folks would not be happy with him if he ran for 2500 yards.
