Broncos | Arrington moving on
Tue, 03 Mar 2009 09:45:45 -0800 Mike Klis and Lindsay H. Jones, of The Denver Post (http://www.kffl.com/link/184), report the Denver Broncos (http://www.kffl.com/team/15/nfl)' deal for free-agent RB J.J. Arrington (http://www.kffl.com/player/11302/nfl) (Cardinals) has all but fallen apart. Arrington had a four-year, $10 million deal in place with the Broncos, but the deal fell apart. He has been drawing interest from other teams, including the Arizona Cardinals (http://www.kffl.com/team/6/nfl).




Haley knows as well as anyone what this kid could bring to the table. I think he could be a good 3rd down/situational back. Not to mention he's a pretty good return man.


Wonder if we'll have him in for a look?

I'm glad that whatever happened ... happened, I wasn't a fan of this one.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't we have a 3rd down back/change of pace back with Charles? And wasn't Kevin Robinson drafted last year to return kicks? I'd like to see what he can do assuming he's healthy.

And ROFL @ Denver. The wheels are coming off & I love it!

I'm just throwing it out there as a possibility because of his history with Haley. As far as your points, I would take him over Dantrell Savage in a heartbeat. And I don't like the idea of Kevin Robinson. In my mind he's a one trick pony. IIRC, he was back there a few times last year and didn't do anything to make me remember him.

I'm just not big on the idea of vet RBs. Not saying he's old or anything.

But they do have more wear & tear on them and change of pace RBs you can easily get in the mid to late rounds.

RB is just an easy position to fill IMO.

He only has 183 carries in his 3 year career. I look at him like a Kevin Faulk in New England's offense.

Rumor has it Arrington caught wind of McDaniels potentially trading Arrington to the lions for their 6th round draft choice.

And no, I'll pass !

If your team can't draft running backs then you're really in trouble. Save free agency money for other positions.

We've already got a faster version on the roster in Charles.

No thanks. Johnson isn't going anywhere and we have Smith and Charles behind him.

I wouldn't count on Smith. He's coming off of ACL surgery and wasn't exactly the fastest guy around before that.

The Chiefs will definitely need at least one new RB (if not two).

Just not Arrington.

We've talked alot about defensive players that may or may not fit the new system, but we haven't talked much about the offense.

Kolby Smith, I think, is a guy that might not fit the new offense.

I don't know about that. Kolby Smith, IMO, can play the role of Tim Hightower - a shorter, stout back that can run through tackles.

Maybe.

They're roughly the same size (KS is 5'11, 219 & TH is 6'0, 224) but I'd hardly call them "shorter".

Short to me is Emmitt Smith, Priest Holmes, Jamaal Charles, LT - 5'9-5'10 and built like a fireplug.

I guess I mean shorter in relation to their stockier build. Emmitt, Priest, Charles are short but they're more elusive, quick cut type players. Kolby and Hightower are more solidly built and run more physically.

Hightower seems to be alot shiftier than Smith.

The whole league seems to be going that way to a certain extent. The approach seems to be to have a 1-2 combo rather than a feature back.

Success is predicated on having two or more good backs, not two or more fat shitty backs.

Charles was the backup anyway.

And if memory serves we signed Dantrell Savage to the PS, no?

Yep.

The Chiefs need "Thunder" to go along with "Lightening" (Charles).

Savage is way too small to be an every down back. He's only 5'8 and is a situational guy at best.

Charles should definitely move ahead of Smith on the depth chart and should have been ahead of him last year.

I remember an interview with Cowher about 5 years ago or so, and he said something along the lines of, "I've tried thunder and lightning, I've tried all combinations, but the best one I've found is two smashmouth backs."

So we get Bettis out of retirement, and then get Jamal Lewis... It'll work. :-)

Savage would be the Third RB.
Why would he have to be an every-down back?
Charles is your back up (he's not an every-down back either though).

So if that's the point you're trying to make I understand.

Yeah, that's why he won a Super Bowl with Bettis and Willie Parker (Thunder and Lightening).

Uh, this was before he won the Super Bowl. It was the year they had Bettis and Staley.

Its just an opinion.

I know. The irony is that he said that, then won the SB with the opposite.

Yeah... It just goes to show you that chemistry has a lot to do with it.

Edited to add: And you have to admit that Cowher had a hard-on for bruiser backs.

THE BEST ONE I'VE FOUND would be the point to concentrate on.

Everything about that SB win under Cowher would be contrary to his philosophies...
