    Alot of you are saying dayne will finally be able to "show his stuff" this year. He is in a class of "busts" with curtis enis and kijana carter. By the way he had plenty of carries with the NY giants. All of you are sayin, well hell get us the 2-3 yards where tatum cant...look at daynes career avgs (2000-3.4, 2001-3.8, 2002-3.4, 2003-DNP INJURED, 2004-3.4), wow i guess the reason he can get us those 3-4 yard runs is BECAUSE THATS ALL HE CAN DO...we all know denver needs a back that can break the big one, TD did a hell of a job with that, portis and now tatum bell...enough with these absurd dayne posts.

    Exactly he did show some moments but I need to see him more.

Griffin didn't rush for 921yards while only starting 1 game and missing a game also. You will see this year, if TSpeed as he calls himself bulks up just a little he will be our feature back....a Clinton Portis prototype. He's only going into his 3rd year. Give the guy a break. Dayne is not overrated either. He was our best rusher in Pre-season, he sealed the game for us against the Chargers, and he won the game against the cowboys.......those were the only chances he got this year. I personally will be happy with either Dayne or Bell starting....I'd even be happy with MA starting if we were to bring him back although it's doubtful.
    Agreed, Bell is vastly superior to Griffin. Bell could still develop quite nicely within the next 2 years....he is still a young RB......

    Well, considering he only had a few carries here and there towards the second half of the year, I'd say he did quite well.

    What are you talking about. Pretty much every time Dayne went out on the field he picked up some good yards. He averaged 5.1 yards per carry which is more then anderson's 4.2.

    RD will be the next rushing leader for DEN unless they make a deal for some other back like alexander, which is NOT gonna happen.

    tater was a waste of a pick, nothing but a change of pace guy. A taller Q, at least Q was a 4th round choice.

    I suppose it will eventually be evident to all......it is the SYSTEM, not the RUNNING BACK......Dayne will do fine if he wins the job in 2006. Over-rated?? Cut by the Giants.....left for dead......he didn't exactly have tons of suitors lining up for him last year. Dayne+Bell+ a draft pick will mean business as usual for one of the NFL's best rushing attacks.

    He may be over rated on this message board, but he certainly isnt over rated in the general media of the NFL. Many people dont think he is anything special.

    And add to that when Dayne did have a chance to show his stuff ...he did very well.

    I did not like the idea that Mike was released, but I don't think it is fair to say that Dayne is overrated. Dayne did not have many chances to show his stuff, so let's see what he can do.
