        Let Turner do his job....

        Bobby Turner, the RB coach, is a hard man to please and is very much responsible for the excellent run on good RBs over the last ten years. If Mike Bell shows the ability, or promise, to play the position up to Bronco standards, than he will be there. As a simple fan, I don't have the ability to determine who will carry the pig. If he earns the chance, he may surprize us all.

            Link?

            and how is that turning down being drafted?

            NO RB in the 5th round on will get a fair share of playing time as a rookie in the NFL...

                  DT if Shanahan wanted to bring in a back of that caliber he would pay them to do so. Had we drafted Maroney I would venture to guess he would have been the highest paid back on the team.

                    But who knows even if we would get maroney regardless of how shanny said he liked him and all. Who knows if we stayed put we could of got Allen..

                    But w/ Bell if he has some great work ethic look for him to compete in couple years

                      DT was saying we don't pay rb very well. My point if we had drafted Maroney which all indication are that is who Shanahan was going to get and he was available at the pick from what I rememeber. Maroney would then be slotted in a certain salary range and that would have more than likely made him the highest paid rb on the team.

                      I have nothing against Mike Bell I haven't even seen him play. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do.

                          Let me see if I can find it where he was saying he hoped teams passed him up after it got to round 5!! I think it was AZ Republic or SF Chronicle!!

                            Don't bother looking at sf chronicle not it.. I get that newspaper.

                            But I don't read AZ republic to often unless its some big news or somthing.. I know that most Newspapers are not tooo reliable source atleast going by denverpost and rockymountain even though they are good reads

                              he's never done it before and he wont do it now. shanny knows he doesnt have to go get a rb of that caliber and pay him all this money. name one rb he's done it with. and u really think Maroney would have been the highest paid rb on the team. Wow. What has he done in the NFL to deserve that kind of money. If we would've drafted Maroney it was bye to one of the rb's we have now. b/c from what i've seen from shanny is, he only dresses 2 rb's mostly throughout the year. And has a fb that can play rb. But in all honesty, shanny wouldnt of drafted Maroney. He never drafts rb;s in the first rd for the past 11-12 yrs. it was just to lite a little fire under Bell's butt to work harder.

                                I DO think Maroney would've been the highest paid RB on the team if he'd have been selected in the first round. While you are correct that NONE of the 1st round draft picks have done anything to "earn" that kind of money in the NFL, the fact of life is that they do get paid, generally, according to their draft position. So, if Maroney had been selected by the broncos at number 10-15 he would've been paid accordingly. Thus he would've become the highest paid RB on the broncos.

                                I do agree with you that it's unlikely for Shanahan to draft a RB in the 1st round because he's been so successful drafting later and finding gems that fit his system better. I think he was tempted to draft Maroney because he fits the system, but only if he couldn't have reached Cutler.
