Danny Kanell is the #3 QB in Denver. . . hes a Florida State guy (was the starter for a couple years after Ward and before Weinke was . . . like '94-'95?) Journeyman . . . first playing time since 2000. . . hope that helped. This may not help Portis' numbers as he will get more carries but it makes the Denver O more one-dimensional daring teams to stack up against the run.
I think that the Denver system has proven itself to be a system that promotes QBs and RBs. I don't think he will have a problem. I think they would have beat most teams with their performance today, but they were facing the mighty VIKINGS!
