No of course I'm not happy with his play, but I'm not going to give up on him, draft another RB when we already have one with Pro-Bowl talent especially when we have so many other needs. I also think that both of the injuries were kind of freak accideents. In 2004, he had a severe ankle sprain, but the guy came back weeks early and rushed for over 1000 yards. He's still a good player and I think it's ridiculous to give up on him so early.

OK so let's use our #2 overall pick on Reggie Bush to fill a hole that doesn't even exist. Smith and STecker are decent back-ups IF Deuce gets hurt again. But why would we want to draft a QB or LB or DT or CB when we could get another RB? I would love to see Reggie on our team, but not if it means having Todd Bouman or AMAC as our QB, or even seeing McKinnon, Slaughter, and Watson as our LBs.

uhm well some can argue that there is a whole at RB. You don't get speed/burst back once it starts to go... its gone. Reggie will bring a new dimension to the offense and a 2nd RB. You can't deny that the Broncos have been very successful with there 2 RB's in the backfield. Its not just about Deuce getting hurt. I also feel that AB will be the starter again if Amac isn't ready and who is the coach at the start of the season. We also have other picks to fill holes.

Um, the Broncos have done it with second and third round RBs, not taking RBs number two over all. Terrell Davis was a 6th rounder, I think Mike anderson was undrafted, or was also drafted late. Tatum Bell was second round, and Ron Dayne was a retread. So if we NEED a backup RB, take Addai in the 4th if he's there. Since the Broncos are the example, we don't need a RB at #2. Good job Euphoria.

You can't compare the play of our O-line to the Broncos. If our o-line would be playing the same way Stecker and Smith would be plenty, I honestly believe that none of the Broncos RBs stack up against Deuce, at all. But they have great coaching and a great system which gets the bes out of every player.

addai will probably be a late 1st early 2nd round pick...

this is based on the assumption that bush and white both dont enter the draft...

Um, that's only seniors, and White has entered the draft. So that then makes Addai the FIFTH RB that should be chosen when Bush declares? I like our chances. Especially if we can trade Brooks for a third.
