    maybe for a different team, but there's no way we trade for Volek considering Carr is our starter and Sage has looked pretty good at backup. even though Volek is very talented, there is no reason to give up a pick/player for him

    but I wouldn't be suprised if we trade for a RB

    I hear most of the league is not wanting to trade for Volek because they're waiting for him to get cut instead.

    He's not going to want to come here though. He wants to at least go somewhere he can be a #2. He's too good to be a #3.

    I'd look for them to take a look at someone like Najeh Davenport. I doubt we make a trade for any backs...I don't think we need a starter, just more of a goal line/short yardage guy.

    I trust kubiak to have a plan because i know we aren't set at RB or QB yet. no way we go with two of each and 4 tight ends.

    I didn't get to read the titans board on a post about Volek to chargers(with a questionmark)

    i always liked Davenport from GB. I think he would be an Ideal big back in our system.

    Davenport is always injured though. It would be like putting Davis in the doghouse because he gets injured so much, only to get another injury-prone RB who is less talented than Davis. Wouldn't make that much sense to me.

    I like him too, lets hope we get a back and are also able to retain Taylor and Anderson on the practice squad

    He's been injured while carrying the load, something that we will not ask of him to do here. Most interesting offseason in our history.

    The Titans really messed up (again) with what they did with Volek. He won't come here though. (I'd be surprised.)

    Volek isn't worth starting and he didn't have a very good preseason. VY looked better than him when he played and he wasn't even working with the first team in practice.

    We wont go with 2 RB's but we will have only 2 QB's they have done this in Denver.

    Texans fans, would you all have liked McNair to come over here than Rosenfels?

    Yeah, but as a starter and that wasn't going to happen.

    Yeah, I like the way he really squirts through the hole...Some GB fans think he stinks though, so he may be a crappy pickup if we do indeed get him...

    Oh, in case you didn't realize, I was making light of this story from his days at "the U"...

    Something definitely has to be in the works either via trade or free agency at Running Back. No way we can start the season with only Lundy and Morency. Anyone else think Ron Dayne is a possibility via Free Agency, being in Denver last season he is very familiar with the system and can quickly come in here.
