Good News for Dayne Owners

Postby planetofdamapes » Sat Jul 29, 2006 10:19 pm

Shanahan is high on Dayne going into the season

Jul 29 Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan said he believes the Denver offense is a good fit for RB Ron Dayne. "The proof is in the pudding, obviously, but he ran that style offense when he was at Wisconsin and was a Heisman Trophy winner because of it. They ran pretty close to 100 percent zone-blocking scheme, very similar to what we're running. A zone-blocking scheme, for a running back, is a one-cut back where you don't have to dance. It's not a lot of counters. It's taking the ball downfield and making plays. At his weight and his size, he does have some power. We think he fits our system pretty good."

Jul 28 Recent comments from both Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan and general manager Ted Sundquist on the team's official site seem to indicate that they still expect Dayne to open the season as the starting running back.

ESPN is reporting that the Bears have no interest in trading Jones. It's on the NFL page of their site, but only insiders can read it apparently.

Mike Shanahan isn't gonna show his hand this early, I am not listening to anything before the first preseason game. But, if you have a draft within the next few days, I look at it like this. Dayne isn't going to be the starter for long, or if he is, he still won't be as value-able as Bell.

Glad I listened to everybody who said that last year when Anderson remained the starter.
