  • Galloway up to 3.4 ypc in today's game...

    Geez, I was hoping Galloway would do just a tad bit better in Europe. He got all the way up to 3.4 yards per carry in his game today. I think that's his best outing yet so maybe he's getting better???

    Here's the game summary if anyone wants to see it:

      I have picked them up and I think he looks horrible. I can't see him breaking any tackles and he looks slow. Hopefully it is just his horrible offensive line that is the majority of the problem...

        It can't entirely be the offensive line because his fellow running backs all have a lot better average than him. There's still time but he'd better start to make a better showing or the Broncos might not even bring him to camp.

          have to remember poor guy hasnt ran in what almost 2yrs? and I hear the Oline is horrible over there. of course he could just be bad, but he does have a lot of things to over come.

            They're on the NFL Network (DirecTV, but more coming soon, I guess).

            I'm not impressed. The whole team (Scottish Claymores) looks horrible. They lost yesterday 3-0; and we're not talking the Ravens vs. the Bucs here. In the beginning I wanted to give him (Galloway) the benefit of the doubt, but I'm starting to think that if he was really good then he could do something about the inability of his team to move the football. He mostly splits the carries with another back, and from what I can tell, the other guy is a little better. Don't get me wrong - I want him to do well, and there's still time for him to do something, but so far I really don't like what I'm seeing.

              I would be inclined to agree, however, what you do have to remember is that poor AG has been out for what 2 years I think. To expect him to back and get straight into the swing of things would be simply foolish. Now granted he has had three games, but in those three games he has not had a huge amout of carries, I think no more than about 40 but do correct me if I am wrong. Also, I know that many of you will argue that this is just NFL Europe, however, I would say to that, that it would still be difficult to return to the game even in the lesser talented league.

              Give him time, with the extra roster spots we can afford to. After all, how can we expect someone who has been out for 2 years to be able to dominate, or even perfome at 4 ypc after only 40 carries. He has shown toughness after all, to fight his way back from that injury I mean.

                I understand the guy is coming back from serious a serious knee injury. But what was he doing last year? Was he rehabbing the whole time or did he ever get well enough to practice with the Broncos?

                It doesn't really matter if we, the fans, have patience with Galloway or not. What matters is how much patience the Broncos will have with him. Looks like he won't be on injured reserve this season so will the Broncos be willing to use a roster spot for him if he's not even looking good in NFL Europe? Will they cut him and then hope to sign him to the practice squad?

                I would like to actually see one of the Claymores' games because the stats don't tell the whole story. But, having only the stats to go by, it would seem that he is struggling quite a bit while his no-name teammates are outplaying him.

                  According to him, I think that I read this somewhere, he rehabbed for the entirety of last year. And yeah, it really doesn'tmatter what we, the fans think. But I have full confidence to the Broncos.

                  Finally the Claymores are HORRIBLE, simple attrocious. Ahmad is usually ised at the start of the game, wearing down the D then t'other RB comes in and picks up some easy gains vs a tired D.

                  As Winston Curchill once said "there are lies, damn lies, and worst of all statistics!"

                      Thanks, that's the stuff I'm looking for... actually football players, not stats like Portis...but that's a bummer, I really thought he could of been a punisher, running people over and stuff..

                        hmm...Direct Tv...dang, I'll stick with my comcast...but does he really look that bad? He had a lot of potential in Alabama before he got injured, he should of been a first round pick if he stayed healthy...

                          He looks bad...Like, really bad.....

                          Slow, sluggish, no moves, not breaking tackles....NO burst.....

                          I don't see him contributing much with Q, Hearst , and whoever we draft playing in front of him....
                          Eeerrrrrr.......

                            It looks like something for him to build on. However, if he only averages 12 carries a will that really show us what this guy is capable of?

                              Well, he's down to 2.1 ypc in his last game. Here's the link:

                              I know this doesn't matter as much since we drafted Tatum Bell but I had hopes for this guy to be a pleasant surprise at running back. I know his line is porous but he has yet to have a decent game in NFL Europe.
