2006 Broncos Starting Offense – Thoughts February 13, 2006

Posted by harkov in Uncategorized.

Ok, so 2006, where will we be in terms of a starting lineup on offense?

Overall I think we are ‘ok’ at this position.  As much as TO’s personality may be a disruption, we certainly could use his talent at the position.

R. Smith – He’ll have another productive year, I certainly don’t see his role being reduced anytime soon, unless of course, TO is brought into the mix
A. Lelie – I think 2005 was a disappointment in some people’s eyes, but was it his fault?  or the ‘taming’ of Jake?
D. Watts – What happened to this guy?  I say he’s cut sooner than later.
D. Terrell – Does he fit into the mix..Who knows, if he could perform like he did several years back in Chicago, I’m sure he can fill a role.  Let’s see how he does in training camp.

J. Putzier – He had a pretty good year in my eyes.  Again people might look at it as disappointing (due to his big contract..thanks Jets).  But look at the passing game on a whole last year.  Jake was asked to do less, and he did.  Putz was still up there in the league in yards/catch.
S. Alexander – He served his role.  A vet, who we thought could be a good blocker, and perhaps catch some balls.  He probably was a little short on his delivery, but one can’t complain too much given what he was being paid.  I’m not sure where he will fit in next season, let’s hope one of the young guys can step up!
W. Duke – Duke showed us a few flashes of his b-ball skills late in the year.  If he can polish up the rest of his football skills over in NFL-E, he might be our Antonio Gates.

G. Foster – Foster continues to grow, and I do believe he will be grow into an excellent LT for us at some point…which may be sooner than later!
M. Lepsis – Let’s see if we can get Matt’s inked to a lower cap number this year.  He is certainly a force at LT at times, but even without him, I think Foster could step up and fill that role nicely.
C. Green – This guy filled in nicely when Foster was having some issues.  If we should lose Lepsis, I say he walks in and starts at RT for us this coming year.  If not, he continues to provide some nice depth.

We’re set here until Nalen retires, and Hamilton moves to C.  At which time, I would think Myers could move in to fill in Ben’s role.
B. Hamilton – Great job this year, our future Center
C. Carlisle – Struggled at time, but he will be our starting RG for a few more years at least.

T. Nalen – The future Hall of Famer will slug it out for another year at least.  We’ve got him signed up for 2006 again.  No worries here.

J. Plummer – Jake proved to be more efficient when he took less risks..it translated into a first round bye, and a lot less interceptions.  It also translates into quite a boring offense, in my opinion.  But I sure will take it over the old jake anyday.
B. Van Pelt – I’m not so sure I would be excited to see him leading our offense on a regular basis.  Nonetheless, he has shown flashes of his athleticism, and some potential.  Is he our future starting QB?  The jury is still out on that.

K. Johnson – What a gem we found in this guy.  I wish we would get the ball to him more often in the flat.  But another great season.  Excellent blocker, great pass catching FB.

Will the Three Headed Monster continue?  Shanahan said he would like to ‘feature’ a back, but will any of the guys on our current roster be able to do that?  Will we pickup a feature back in Free Agency or the Draft?

R. Dayne – I really am intrigued by Ron Dayne…I wish we could have seen more of him last year. He’s a powerful runner, that has some suprising speed (see cowboys game).  He can pickup the blitz, knows the position well, and doesn’t hesitate at the line.  I hope he does well in Camp.

T. Bell – I know I was disappointed with Tatum’s 2005 performance.  Sure 900 yards or whatever in short duty, but it’s obvious why he isn’t the starting RB now.  The boy needs to learn to pickup the blitz and catch the ball out of the backfield.  He needs to bulk up and be able to stay healthy through a season.  He gets dinged up carrying the ball 10 times a game, how is he going to be able to do it 30?  I’m not sure where I think he’ll be next year.  Trade Bait?

M.Anderson – Unfortunately I feel like the old warrior is on his last legs.  His gutsy performances keep me rooting for him, but he isn’t capable of breaking a game open anymore.
