    Being one of the few Q fans over the past few months, let me add that the article was a great one. I had heard many things about him but the article covered it all in one place.

    I hope he is the starter, but iff Bell or Anderson can beat him out it is ok BY me.

    Having Mr HUmble on the team is a far cry from poorti$.

    It was said Q had the most impressive showing at camp. He impressed especially on 1 on 1 drill cause no LB could even stay within 5 yards of him as he burned everybody he faced.

    Also Trevor Pryce shed fat and gained muscle on his diet over the offseason. He is slimmer but still weighs the same, Tuten says he is much stronger faster quicker than last year and also is trying to get back to the mentality that he had when he had probowl years.


    ?? - Camp - today ?? All that was done today is physicals, no workouts have begun yet

    What it boils down to is taking advantage of the opportunities you are given. Granted there weren't many through most of the season, but that does not change the fact he did have opportunity. That's the past.

    Now is his time to prove what he can do plain and simple. I have never veered from what I have stated over and over and that is if win out great if its one of the others that fine too.

    Just please don't try stating that Griffin is the best back when he hasn't proven it as such. It is your opinion but I think would better if you stated it as such. IMO the way posts shows bias towards Griffin simply for the fact of who he played for in college, and not the fact that he is a Denver Bronco.
    Q is the best back, you can tell by just looking at him, he is as polished as i ever seen, there is nothing he doesnt do well, except grow vertically and thats irrelevant. Maybe bell will gain some organization in his run skills (like learning to not run so upright and fumbling catching as i heard those were knocks on him) and become greater than griffin i dont know, but as of now, Griffin is above the rest IMO cause he has the vision, very nice moves, catching ability, blocking ability and quickness off the charts, plus he is very humble. You dont need a couple years worth of game playing experience to see his attributes, you can see those in the first few games as we have seen

    i am just telling you what i think. i am allowed to do that right? i never said he was already named the starter, i just think he is good enough and has performed well enough so far to where "I THINK" he has it in the bag, thats all im sayin.

    Of course I do, A.O.

    And I'm sure you know that not ALL fans of Q are simply "Norman lovers" ...

    I will support Quentin if he is named starter....BUT, this debate has been going on even when Clinton Portis was in Denver and a starter...which then I thought was silly.

    If Q wasn't injured last training camp and etc....we all know that. Last season, we came in knowing who was RB and who is backup. I just don't trust him yet.

    I'm used to a Denver Broncos running game where it's one cut and go and that's where Tatum Bell comes in. I never said Q was not talented, I'm just saying I don't see him fitting in the season for 16 games.... you can compare him to some of the best, but he has to prove that he can be one of them before I can jump all over his backside.

    And Chick, you know I love ya for all that support right =)

    I can only hope that the way he comes across isn't the way he INTENDS to come across. He's essentially a great guy, one whom I've supported since before he became a mod, when a few trolls were hurling really horrible ethnic insults at him.

    Oh from someones post earlier

    About Bell if he starts, being from OSU, would I support him? Everyday and every game. I am going to support any back on that field, starter, reliever, or burn up the clocker. Whoever is running that ball I will be supporting.

    I enjoy watching QG because he brings something to the game that is missing sometimes. Yes I hope he starts but that doesnt mean if someone elese does I wont support them because I will. I am happy we have the depth we do.

    Can you see yourself rooting for a back from OSU?
    Why is everyone who happens to like Q's potential automatically labeled a "Norman lover"? I know you didn't specifically say "everyone", but that's how it comes across.

    To answer your second question, of course people can see themselves rooting for a back from OSU. That's why they register with a Broncos board and not an OU board or an OSU board.

I think Q has got it in the bag and i think he will rack up 1600 yds and if he does that this year he also makes the probowl, only becasuse his 1600 yds will be a lot more exciting to watch and he will become a fan favorite around the league. sooner or later im sure you will come around as well
