    Denver is a young team.....

    having more experienced players (aka Vets) is VERY helpful to a team.....every team that wins a super bowl has a couple vets on their team.....

    simply for that reason I woulnd't mind having Dunn on Denver's team.....

    Yea because Garrison was a top 4 active rusher in the league when he had a chance to come here and Garrison also ran for more than 10,000 yards.

    :sighs and sarcasm everywhere:

    *try having knowledge and stats about a player if you are going to assasinate his character*

    We had a pretty good stable of RB's when we managed to bring G Hearst to town. Dunn is leap years ahead of Hearst at this point in his career. There are plenty of yards left on those legs.

    Like I originally stated: Dunn will end up in Houston. He wont have a problem unseating Green and will be there for a couple of years. Then he will be there to groom this year's pick. Not to mention they are more likely to win more games.
    Dont get me wrong on Henry. I was pumped on Henry. I bought the propaganda machine that is Dove Valley's kool aid and drank it up! I really thought Henry was going to be the poo.

    Now I just want him to prove he can go a year without injury again.

    Let me add that had we not kept Henry I would not be opposed to bringing in Dunn.

    B Marsh had his issue this off season. Hall has been arrested this year, no Thomas too. Kircus nuff said. Graham is even having brushes with the law!

    BKLYBRONCO said it best: this team needs a major heart transplant! Period.

    By the way, I wasn't talking about sideline leadership. You mentioned we have plenty of leaders and I asked who. The names you gave were for D. We have 0 on O.

    1 is on the retired list and the other two are on D! Nice! Johny Lynch and Champ will be leaders for the O on the sideline.

    Like I said for whatever reason you have something against him but lets not put him in the old folks home just yet.
    he does produce on the field and he's been on bad offensive teams.
    A good player who would bring a good character to the locker room not like Javon or some of the other FA denver has signed.
    I have nothing against Dunn and rather like the guy personally. All I am saying is I don't think he brings anything to the table that we don't already have and it is money we could spend elsewhere. His yards per carry in a very similar system over the past 3 years went from 5.1 to 4.0 to 3.2.

    Again I think he is a stand-up guy and he used to be a good back but we would be wise to spend our money elsewhere IMO.

    Great point! I dont see how competition at a position can hurt this team!

    One of the biggest, if not the biggest problem on the Broncos last year was the lack of leadership.

    Right off they cut Al Wilson......and cut the heart out of the defense. PERIOD.

    Did you see how the defense looked last year when Lynch wasn't in there?
    -Everybody looked absolutely frieking lost! How many 12 men on the field penalties or timeouts were called due to only 9 or 10 men on the field because Lynch was on the sidelines not directing everybody where to go?

    No Al Wilson, Rod Smith, Keith Burns, Jason Elam?......almost lost Lynch, Bailey's more of a quiet lead-by-example kind of guy....who is gonna be the vocal leaders for this team other than Lynch?????

    That's why I actually like the signing of the LB they just got from Seattle, who was their ST's captain.

    This team is in a serious need of a heart transplant.......errr.......it needs one!
