I mean really, they seem to always a running back who puts up huge numbers for them.


Terrell Davis had a 2000 yard season and led them to back to back super bowl titles.

Olandis Gary had a 1000 yard season in replacement I believe.

Mike Anderson fills in and he has a 1000 yard season I believe.

Clinton Portis is a fuckin beast and has close to 1600 yards this season.

Portis goes down and in steps Quentin Griffin and he runs wild for 130+ yards.



Are all these backs really this talented, or is it the line they have blocking in front of them? Is it Mike Shanahan's schemes? What makes Denver backs so dominating...?

Where did this Griffin guy come from? Did you see how fast he was? Damn he looked good.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing when I was watching the game.

The Bronco's running game owned the Colts last night.

What did they have the ball for like 45 minutes or something ridiculous like that.

This is why Portis was such a douche with his little belt and shit. The next guy in line steps up and does a great job. And like Stick said, this isn't a fluke, they've been putting out solid backs for years now.

^^^^much like there are system qb's in the NCAA, there can be system running backs in the pro game.....Denver's system makes rb's better than they really are.....think back to BS....(before Shanahan).....they hadn't had a 1000 yard rusher in the previous sixteen years, and those were mostly with Elway at qb.....

that being said, Shanahan's system must be great.....and that really hurts for me to say.....
