It's either Barkely or bust if you're a Skin fan.

While I'm not a big fan of Mike Shanahan's micro managing style of coaching that you mentioned, I do look back to his early days as coach of the Broncos and what he accomplished there in quite a hurry. Granted he had Elway, and play makers on the offensive side of the ball.

Now, I never saw or understood the rationale/logic in the interest in Tashard Choice nor did it make sense to me why he was let go when clearly the offensive line was responsible for not opening holes and allowing the Dallas defense to penetrate and hit Choice in the backfield. The same offensive line has made it difficult for Ryan Torain to find running room this year.

I think Shanahan lies to the media. And plus he's always not honest, as if he's holding something back purposefully. Of course he knew that Roy Helu could shoulder the load. He knew it since preseason. For whatever reason, Shanahan doesn't say what he really thinks, or tries to conceal it. I find his want of attempting to hide the truth about things to be very odd.

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.


Awesome isn't it.

Re: RGIII Heisman Winner

I've been an RG3 to the skins supporter since I watched him play Iowa state this year and felt confirmed after the Oklahoma and Kansas games.

If Shanny gets to choose between Barkley and RG3, I think he will choose Barkley. Yet I can't see him passing on RG3 if Luck and Barkley are off the board for 5 reasons.

1. Most importantly, we lack play makers on offense. RG3 is a qb and a playmaker. Moss is our biggest play maker now but he is in the late stages of his career.

2. Since he is a play maker he instantly makes our running game better because defenses have to account for him. Helu has looked good but with RG3 he will look great. All roll out hand offs instantly have major cut back lanes.

3. With the threat to run he slows down all pass rushers. Our oline has looked weak when teams know we are dropping back to pass late in games. RG3 can buy his own time and completes alot of his college passes to the sideline once he starts scrambling.

4.Shanny will love his intangibles. People have nothing but good things to say about his leadership and work ethic. Things Elway had in abundance. Shanny is a very demanding coach but RG3 seems like the type of player who seeks to meet and exceed the demands put on him. A lot of football is about chemistry between players ans coaches.

5. This one is not how i think Shanny really thinks but I think should be considered. The success this year of Newton and Tebow. Less than conventional qbs have been having success in the league lately and RG3 is a better passer than either of them looked coming out of college. Both Newton and Tebow made clutch plays in college and have continued to in the NFL and RG3 has done the same.

^ I agree except Cam Newton is a pure drop back passer not just a runner like tebow, newton is a big Ben type QB but better athleticism
