I love how there are so many doubters and the threads immediately come up expressing it. In the cafe, everyone falls into one of these categories:
1. You passed on him in your draft and are now trying to justify it.
2. You expressed your doubt early here at the cafe and aren't about to flip anytime soon.
3. You own Portis and want to think he's more special than he actually is.
4. You hate Denver.
5. You own Griffin and while you express optimism, you're a little nervous. Thank God you have him as your #3 RB.
I'm in #4 and #5.
I can't help but notice the brilliant system they have there. On top of that, Denver plays Oakland (Duce Staley got 91 yds) and San Diego twice this year, as well as KC's poor run defense. That's 5 games that already look pretty good.
I'm going to remain cautiously optimistic, but still semi-bash the doubters unless they are actually proven right. No use in trying to tell anyone "this is the best game he'll have this year" or even "he'll break 1500 yards" because the only way you're going to know is by watching the damn season.
