Shanahan has said he would consider a running back by committee this season, but would like to see one back emerge as the Broncos' go-to guy.

"If you have one guy that you call your 'stud buffalo,' that you say is your guy, and he wants the rock in his hand, wants to carry it 35 or 40 times a game, then obviously we could go in that direction," Shanahan said after trading Portis to Washington.


I hope so for fantasy's sake as well. Given the system and the line that is still intact, whoever it is would have to be a mid-late 2nd round choice and a solid #2 RB. ;-D

Your telling me you would spend a mid to late 2nd round pick on Tatum Bell, Garrison Hearst, or Mike Anderson? You could get a much better player with that pick and get one of these guys later.

Uh,like I said,he's running with the 1st team...so far.Not 4th on the list.

Lee Rasizer, Rocky Mountain News - In the team's first practice, Quentin Griffin was the one slipping into the Portis vacancy with the first-team offense. His standing as the second-team HB to close out 2003 temporarily bumps him up a notch to starter. "He is, on paper," Mike Shanahan said. "Is it very close? Sure. It's going to be very competitive. But we won't know for sure until the first game."

Also, Tatum struggled to keep his breath in Friday's minicamp. This is also from the Rocky Mountain News:

"I thought I was in shape. I come up here, and it kind of was a shocker to me," Bell admitted. Welcome to Dove Valley, rookie. Keep in mind that it is extremely early and there are a lot of practices to be held before the Broncos declare a starter.

You guys would be wise to not underestimate Garrison Hearst. He doesn't have that many miles on his body and has always battled hard to be the feature back.

A lot of guys bust on Barlow for not being able to beat out Garrison but you have to give Garrison his due for holding off Barlow. Garrison is solid at all aspects of the game, he blocks, catches and runs well, he is just a smart player and the coaches will want a guy in there that can handle all of the blitz pickups and everything.

Why is Tatum gasping for air? A lot of those players are new to Denver and were not hurting as bad. Garrison has been playing at sea level for years in San Fran and he was fine.

Anyways, watch out of Hearst, he won't go down quietly.
