  • Clady as Rookie of the Year Article

    The article again sheds some light on the non glamour types, and why Clady is having a recognizable rookie season. I for one think he is a strong candidate, because the improvement in the oline has been significant. However, he won't benefit by having Eddie Royal on the ballot, as it's quite likely that their vote will be split a bit. And I am starting to think that Matt Ryan is the player to watch, as a good rookie QB is hard to find, especially one who has brought back "winning" to a club. Forte is also high up there, and there a bunch of others who will get some serious consideration.

    But this article is about Clady, so lets give him some love!!!

    (Note little tidbit on Lynch as well...hmmm)

    Jay Cutler is one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL in 2008, and he owes a lot of that credit to his right arm, and some play-makers at the skill positions. But the man who Cutler needs to treat to a free vacation this offseason is No. 78, rookie left tackle Ryan Clady.

    Since he was drafted by Denver with the 12th overall pick in the 2008 draft, Head Coach Mike Shanahan dubbed him the starter. He has not disappointed.

    The rookie phenom hasn't allowed one sack all season long, and has but one holding penalty against him. Although he won't get the recognition for scoring touchdowns, he surely will pave the way for many.

    Clady and the rest of the Denver line are on pace to set NFL records for the least amount of sacks allowed per pass attempt. And the Broncos are well on their way to finishing in the top tier of elite offenses in this league.

    Granted, production has dropped in the last three games for the men in blue, but with all the talent they possess it only figures to get better. Clady has arguably had a bigger impact on this team than any other rookie in the AFC, maybe the NFL.

    Rookie of the year voters shouldn't limit their horizons to only players that can score touchdowns or return kicks, they should take a close look at the impact of the former Boise State and current Denver Bronco.

    Clady is lighting it up, and deserves some recognition.

    Broncos audition players; Lynch open to return

    The Broncos hosted workouts for former Texans/Packers running back Vernand Morency, and former Patriots wide receiver Chad Jackson.

    John Lynch is keeping the door open, but doesn't feel he needs to prove anything to anybody. "I'm not retired," Lynch said. "I'm staying in shape. I'm ready if a team calls. But having said that, if I've played my final game, I'm content with the career I've had and what I was able to accomplish."

    If Ryan Clady keeps on doing what he's doing, he's going to get votes.

    But I really doubt he'll win the ROY award...


    Last year Joe Thomas (Stud GOD from UW) played just as good, or even better than Clady, but didn't win it because the O-line members don't get sexy stats like an AP would.

        I really wish he would win it because thats where your game are won or lost, in the trenches. I agree though that most people look at touchdowns, yardage, rushing average or QB ratings much more so than they do the men who sacrifice their body on "every" play to make it a success.

          DeSean Jackson , Matt Ryan or Eddie Royal (if he gets and stays healthy)

            I figure matt ryan will falter. He had played what 6 games? That means almost nothing at this point.

              OROY will probably be DeSean Jackson or Matt Forte.

                Or Eddie Royal once he gets healthy and this offense gets back on track. He leds all rookie WR's in receptions and at 1 point was 2nd in punt return avg. So yeah, don't count Royal out just yet. There's still 10 more games to be played.

                But Clady is a beast. It's great to have such a good O-Line. But if the Offense doesn't get it together, that's when mental mistakes and penaltys start happening. So Cutler needs to trust his reads, take what the Defense's gives him, the offense needs to hold the ball better and Mike Shannahan needs to get the run game more involved.

                  Man I would love to see Clady get ROY. He's played like a pro bowler.

                  I watched the draft with some sports writer friends of mine and when Denver selected Clady I was jumping with excitement.

                  They all looked at me like, "W T F are you all happy about?"

                  NOW, there's no question why I was that excited to get a LT like Clady. The dude is bad ass!
