I guess we can already pencil in 1,000 yards for Travis Henry this upcoming season.

Ahman Green would of been more successful than Henry in Denver. But.... Henry will put up some good numbers if he stays healthy. I'm calling it now... Ahman Green is going to be a probowler next season.

Pro Bowler? Behind the Texans OL? I don't think so.

Huh? Henry needs to worry about his health?

How about Ahman Green, who has missed the better part of 2 seasons and is 30 years old?

He ran for 1200 last year with the Titans..... i'm thinkin more like 1500 with the Broncos.

1st round fantasy pick.

Texans oline is improving. Plus who's blocking scheme do you think the Texans use?

Both need to stay healthy. It was just a general comment.

True, but to say he will make the Pro Bowl is a reach.

Man it has become the year of RB's going to new teams.
Lewis has got to be pissed.
I dont think he's even been on any visits.

Henry still needs to stay clean. How much money does Denver have to spend? Everyday there trading or signing someone new.

How do you figure? According to Football Outsiders' OL stats they were 21st in adjusted line yards (basically the portion of runs related to the offense line), 5th in "stuffed" runs (5th being 5th worst in the NFL), and their adjusted sack rate (sacks per drop back) was the 27th best in the NFL. 

The funny thing is that the OL was actually better rushing the ball in 2005 (8th in adjusted line yards/21st in stuffs) and worse passing (32nd in adjusted sack). Don't be fooled by the passing improvement - that's likely a function of Kubiak changing the passing game to short throws.

Denver suceeds because of they have a scheme and players that work in that scheme. Kubiak may have the "scheme" but the players weren't chosen by him and haven't proved able to adapt by all accounts.
