    I was wondering why Stokley was starting trouble with our new star FA signing?
    He Seems like a trouble maker to me?
    (Shouldn't we be happy to have another Race horse in the Stable)

    Gordon stats are better, but not exceptionally so. According to the stats, both of them have YAC higher than their actual YPC, which means they are making alot of catches behind the lLOS, so screen and safety valve/dump off catches. Without looking at video, none of the data shows that Gordon is better route runner than Lindsay.
    Even Christian McCaffrey has higher YAC than YPC. Almost every RB will because screens, flats, swings are going to make up the majority of their receptions and they can be caught anywhere from at the LoS to 6 yards behind it. Gordon is a solid route runner as a RB and was split out wide a good bit because of it. He isn’t McCaffrey or some of the other pass catching specialists but he’s more than capable of being a weapon receiving when it’s asked of him.

    The production may be similar but Gordon has never been the pass catching specialist because of guys like Woodhead and Ekeler. Lindsay couldn’t beat out a 230 pound power back for receiving duties.

    SaltySnipes: Gordon can also run routes and catch, PL doesn't.

    Two more positive reasons for acquiring Gordon. Yippee! :thumb:

    Fair enough.

    The concern with Gordon is the cost relative to other needs on the roster. His rushing production, especially removing 2018, is average (Freeman matched yards/rush in 2019). His receiving production is very good and should bolster the offense.

    The Broncos signed Bouye and lost Harris Jr, with Callahan and Bausby as the remaining CB talent. Callahan has yet to show he can play and Bausby is recovering from a serious neck injury. Casey was a nice signing but Wolfe and Harris are gone (unless they find their way back). James is questionable given his injury history. Even if Bolles miraculously improves with consistency it would help to have a veteran LT.

    Gordon isn’t a bad signing by any stretch, just the fact the roster still has multiple needs. The draft should help however it’s challenging for rookies, even talented ones, to play well at positions like CB and Tackle.

    Hopefully Elway will find some good value with remaining free agents.
    Every team will have strong parts of the team, parts of the team that can be strong as long as certain players are on the field and other parts of the team that are not as strong...maybe even weak.

    This move tells me the Broncos have decided that the running game and RB pass game is where they have decided to be strong.

    Many teams have won Super Bowls by leveraging their strengths of their teams against the opponents to help cover up their weakness. It would not be hard to argue all of these :lombardi: have come with that concept.

    Actually very few teams to have won a Super Bowl are truly dominant in every aspect of the game.
