    Tater has not yet proved that he can handle more than 15 carries a game.

    Mike is a bull but at 220 not all that big and is not a burner.

    Dayne is 245 and has decent speed and is hard to bring down.

    I see Dayne as our Rb of the future him and MA if his contract is cost efficient splitting time with tater coming in from time to time or perhaps in a full house backfield him and dayne and KJ.
    But before that happens tater need to learn how to be a great receiver out of the backfield. If he can't then get Q back to make those moves in space.


    I don't ever see tater as our feature back stud buffalo. Not at under 220 pounds. Just way to much wear and tear on the body.

      Is everybody watching the same game??

      First I want to say that I also wouldn't mind seeing more carries for Dayne, I think that he has earned that. But all your critisim of Tatum is just plain funny to me. The guy finished the season with a YPC of 5.3 and 8 TD's all while getting 66 fewer rushing attempts than MA. I'm not taking anything away from MA and I think along the lines of Topscribe, that if our rushing attack can be this good then don't mess with it. But take it easy on Tatum, if he would have maintained his average and gotten all of MA's carries, he would have run for 2240 yards this season. Us Denver fans can be very picky about the #2 rushing offense in the league.

        For that matter, I believe we will see much more of Dayne in the playoffs, unless Bell suddenly improves his game.

              Why do you hate the running back by committee? Hasn't it worked this year? Did we almost get 2,000 yard rushers? Does it give the other runner a break during the game?

              Why do you "hate" it?

                You do realize that a running back doesn't have to go 50+ yards every time to be good right?

                  I like the use of Anderson and Bell. I think it does take Anderson a few quarters to feel what the defense is doing and then can exploit it. Bell should be limited to 10 carries as Mike has mentioned, he just doesn't look like an every down back.

                  I agreee with your whole statement, as far as i concerned Dayne has yet to have a bad run, i thought he looked great everytime and should be in their more often until he proves different

                      Three of those TD's came in the last game, not so sure SAN was playing up to there normal standard.

                      Yes tater has some impressive stats. But when the coach says not more than 10-12 carries there is a reason for that. But @ 54 yards a game for the season that quite frankly is less than awe inspiring 10.4 attempts per game.

                      Sorry but he is not a complete back, has a good YPC but if he can't go as feature back he better get good at specialty stuff like learning how to catch the ball he was that target 28 tme caught 18 of them for a 104 yards. Also need to be a devistating blitz blocker. So far after TWO YEARS he can run the ball. NOt complete at all.

                        You know what? Stop using the San Diego game like it was the only game this year!

                        Come on the best run defense in the league. The one who held Edge to 20 yards. We have faced some tough run defenses the last few weeks so of course the numbers are going to drop.


                        Also come on people just because of a slow game doesn't mean we need to sit any of our backs! Get out of the player bandwagon mentality and think! The only time you sit a player is if he has proven time and time again that he can't do it. Tatum has shown what he can do when given the chance, but just needs a little consistency.

                        Just give them some freaking time! Come on if you were the coaches we would have the worst team in the NFL because we don't know who the hell is going to start each week,

                          yes three TD's came against SD, but they were playing tough all game. i was impressed that even though tatum wasnt able to break any big runs he was still able to get the ball into the endzone. thats very important. many times this year and (moreso) last, we had to settle for fieldgoals (or threw picks; think SD last year) when our backs couldnt finish inside the 10 yard line. bell did a good job last week.

                          i also think his catching has improved this year. he is looking more and more comfortable coming out of the backfield as the season has worn on. blocking, i cant say for sure, but seems to still need to work on it. but remember, the league MVP shawn alexander comes out on 3rd downs because he cant catch or block worth a damn, so being the 'most well rounded' back is nice, but i'd take 28 td's instead .

                          basically for me, tatum gets his touches, but i like the RBC that has been succussfull so far this year. the only question for me is who gives us the better thunder, MA or RD. the nice thing is i am comfortable with either getting the start.

                            just for interest's sake, here are the three's #s:

                            MA: carries 239 yards 1014 per 4.2 long 44t td 12
                            recieving 18 yards 212 per 11.8 long 66t td 1

                            bell: car 173 y. 921 per 5.3 long 68 td 8
                            recieving 18 y. 104 per 5.8 long 14 td 0

                            dayne: car. 53 y. 270 per 5.1 long 55 td 1
                            recieveing 3 y.17 per 5.7 long 7 td 0

                            all seem to have shown they can get the job done.

                              He's a "deep threat" under limited circumstances, i.e., teams who are poor against the run. With all the talk about using him for only 10 or so plays a game, it's apparent that the coaching staff knows he is not that strong.

                              Don't get me wrong, he is a very good RB. I am not a tater hater. However, with us approaching the playoffs, we'll be facing some teams that are darned good against the run and I believe this is why you will see more of Dayne. The opponents won't be expecting it, and Dayne CAN power thru the line unlike Bell.
                              Bell will still get his carries, but we'll be seeing a lot more of Dayne.

                              If you don't like my opinion, that's totally o.k. with me. We'll just see how Dayne is used in the playoffs and then determine who'll be eating crow.

                                Anderson has at least 1 more season in him.
