    Rueben Droughns

    Food for thought Rueben Droughns racked up 194 yds and 34 touches for Denver. Now i know Denvers oline makes anyone look good but the fact is we had Rueben Droughns at one point. I was excited when we picked him up off waivers from Detroit where he was a halfback ( Hes since been moved to fullback). We released him a few weeks later and he was picked up by Denver where he has been servicable as a fb/hb . He has done more in one week than konrad has done in 2 years. Wanny can not judge talent at all period. Droughns woulda been a fine backup for Konrad and Ricky!! and we let him pass through here like nothing.

    It doesn't matter who is behind the Denver line. When will people learn.

    What did Olandis Gary do outside of Denver? Clinton Portis? The list is endless.........you could take any average back put them in Denver and watch them rack up huge yardage.

    Can't blame Wanny for this. If memory serves me correct. Droughns was signed to the Miami PS and then Detriot came calling a couple of weeks later and he wanted to go back since he had started his career there.

    It was his choice to leave Miami.

    NY I live in Denver and watch most of the games but let me tell you its the system not the back it does not matter who is in the Backfield in Denver. Travis Minor could pull 1000 yard season behind that line don't fall in love with any of those guys. Ruben Droughns has been here for 4 years and has never been anything more then average.

    What's Denver's secret damm*t?!! You think other teams would have copied it by now...but it always seems Denver's line is always tops in run blocking.
