    Dunn makes sense, but is not the answer to our RB woes. He's not as young as he used to be, but he's a class act. A guy you would want around your team because he's not selfish and doesn't get into trouble. He would be a great influence on Selvin Young and any young back we might get.
    Thanks for re-stating a lot of what I already stated By the way PWND???

      You keep brining that 1 season up of 1,400 yards! With the so called (Same type of beat up and crappy offensive line that Denver had last year)

      The next year his numbers dropped as his carries went up. The same thing with his average. From 5.1 to 4.0

      Last year that average even slipped more to 3.2 yards, ALL why SHARING carries with Norwood!

      Now does that look good for a 33 year old?

      Let me remind you that Travis ran for 1.200 yards behind an average Titans offensive line while only playing in 14 games!

      Let me remind you that Travis was leading the NFL in rushing yards last season before he got hurt!

      I don't know if Dunn built you a house or what, but the TRUTH of the matter is that we don't need to sign a free agent 33 year old back... and we won't.

        You can state that Henry was leading in rushing before getting injured. Big deal! He has led the league plenty before getting hurt. HE ALWAYS GETS HURT THOUGH! That is like saying we were winning the super bowl before we lost it. The bottom line is what matters. Henry has only gone 1 season without injury and Dunn has only missed 10 games his WHOLE CAREER!

        As far as him not bringing anything Henry doesnt already: he brings stability, knowledge of the system, class, and YARDS!
        Well if the majority of us are in agreement that we are in a rebuilding period what sense would it make to sign an aged RB? We should go with youth and get them the experience to develop so that in a few years we can make a hard push towards a championship.

          Henry is not a POWER RUNNING BACK nor was TD. The attributes I stated are part of a power back but certainly not everything! We do not have a power system as someone stated we were moving to.

          You want a power back? Bettis! Alstott! Roger Craig! There is a power back! Henry is a back that has some of those qualties but is not a power back. Jamal Lewis is the closest to a power back in the league right now!

            I think that dunn could be used as a kr or pr and could help henry and our running game, he may be past his prime but he still is a good runner

              Then read my original few posts! He would be the best person to groom that new back! I qualified all of this up front!

                Davis wasn't a power back?

                Okay I have to get out of this thread.

                I'll give you some numbers...

                345

                369

                392

                The amount of carries that Davis had in his amazing span of ownage throughout the NFL.

                Not a power back? Get outta here...

                  Because ATL hired Petrino who went away from the zone system! Not to mention ATL had a ton of other distractions named MIKE VICK!

                  Good point! One season only though and a CONTRACT YEAR NO LESS. Henry still has proven he cant stay healthy in the long run!

                  SO WHAT!!!! I keep replying to this! That is a pointless stat because once again he STILL GOT HURT LIKE ALWAYS!!!!!

                  He didn't build me a house but I had to reply to those throwing out terrible posts about the guy not even providing any facts! I made it clear I was only highlighting HOW DUNN WOULD BE DIFFERENT HERE FROM HENRY AND ALL THE EXTRA POSITIVES HE WOULD BRING!

                  I said he probably wont end up here but if he did I would be happy if he didnt I wouldnt be disappointed!!

                    Dunn has returned 20 combined kicks and punts in his NFL career....... 20

                    He hasn't returned anything since 19 frieking 99 !

                    -And he wasn't particularly good at it when he did do it.

                    IF Denver brings Dunn in, it definitely will NOT be for his returning skills!

                      Great numbers but he was still a zone runner! He still was one cut and go. He was not a bang it between the tackles, smash em in the face every single run play back!

                      His most effective and used play was the 30 sweep ! Clearly you use a different definition for a power back than what is out there.

                        Larry Johnson has carried more in a season, P Holmes carried it a ton, Curtis Martin carried it that many times. Are they power backs?

                          Agreed! But even if he did he would be an upgrade to Martinez! I think Hall should be the return man!

                            If LJ isn't a power back, then who is?

                            (PH and CM.......i don't think so.)

                              So if you would ask a coach: How would you define Terrell Davis as a runner... they would say, "Well, he's a zone runner???"

                              If you hate the term power back with Davis, then we'll call him a work horse.. something that Dunn is not.
