use the picks on youth, but hopefully do what it takes to land Portis (a great back IMHO)

as I mentioned before, Trotter will kick some major a$$ this season....I see him having an all-pro year

How in the name of God would we be able to land Portis? That guy is only 22, has excellent speed, and is a beast at breaking tackles. Hes only been in the league 2 years but has had 2 1,500 yard seasons. I cant imagine Denver would trade him for even our 1st 2nd AND 3rd round picks. Tell me the possible Portis scenario please!

yea, a cold day in hell would be more likely. i just used portis(and mcallister) as an example of backs that would be worth a first rounder or two in a trade. not ever gonna happen though.

wanna hear some crap......? when we took betts in the second round, if i'm not mistaken, portis was still on the board. (i could be wrong but a friend brought this up a while back, and it left me wondering) i need to check that out.

Personally - I would find out what back Denver is targeting for the later rounds and take him before they did - those guys do one thing right and that is find the prototypical running back - my gosh how they do it every stinking time is beyond me

:roll: just had it confirmed...... portis was the 51st player to go in the draft.... betts was 46th ](*,) he was available when we picked. but thats all behind us now. and we really don't know betts potential, so i won't say anything else. ::biting lip::

NOOOOOO, Your wrong! Portis went about 10-12 spots ahead of Betts. I'm a big Miami Hurricane fan, and I remember when Portis came out, I was hoping he'd get picked up by the Skins, but got drafted a few spots before the Skins drafted Ladell.

Clinton was selected exactly 5 spots ahead of Ladell. Click here, and scroll down to round 2...http://nfl.com/draft/history/years/2002

Man if Vinny picked Ladell over Portis, I would go with DE Hog over to Vinnys house and slap him too. LoL.

No biggie big guy :)

But a lot of Denver's backs come out of later rounds and they have, at least for almost a decade, found gems. I wanna put a spy cam in their scouting conference room :)

There amazing running backs are directly the result of their great offensive line, of course Portis is a great back regardless. I cant think of one back that played after Davis (which were numerous) that hadnt played great with the Broncos. Remember Orlandis Gary? He had a good year when he was called to start but look at him now, he sucks in Detroit. Because Detroit has a crappy line and hes only a mediocre back (and screwed me over in my fantasy league).

Perhaps the best player that we did not take over betts when we had the chance was Antwan Randle El, who had a great rookie season
