    Who will be the starting RB for the Broncos?

    Hey, I'm just wandering if anyone knows who is the starting RB for the Broncos this year? I drafted Tatum Bell because i have heard that he would be the starter, but in the game last night it looked like Mike Anderson started the game for the Broncos and had a huge game as well. Can anyone help me out with this? What's the latest?

    That's always a question with Shanahan. He often does not announce his starter until the last minute. Anderson is currently listed as the #1 and Bell #2 on the KFFL depth chart.

    After last nights game I would put my money on Mikey Anderson, I know that dude can block, I know that dude can break tackles, I know that dude is money around the goaline, I know that dude can catch, AND I KNOW KNOW THAT DUDE IS FREAKIN FAST!!!!!!

    I would keep Bell, but don't count on him getting alot of touches right away.

    Mike Anderson probably will be the starter (http://www.nfl.com/nflnetwork/story/8775236). Bell will get probably 8-10 touches a game as the 2nd RB. However, it's been a trend the past 4 years or so for the starting RB in Denver to get hurt mid season or earlier. If history is any guide, the backup will be the starter at some point in the season.

    Shanny also announces a starter, and then another player gets more playing time ...see last year with droughns/bell

    The same reason they traded Olandis Gary and Portis.

    They always trade their running backs. That's because anyone can succeed in their offensive system because Shannahan is a genius with the o-line and blocking, etc. He's able to make running backs look amazing, and then trade them for other things he needs (like Champ Bailey and the entire Browns d-line).

    Mike Anderson will start IMO. If he gets injured, Tatum Bell will start. Then he's still got Ron Dayne (who's apparently looked real good so far) and Maurice Clarett.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    Re: Who will be the starting RB for the Broncos?

    On a hunch, I think the workhorse will be anderson since he has proven himself in the past. bell will be in for relief. but like in previous years, someone else always seems to step up in their system, so whomever they have starting, someone else always seems to take valuable points away. I would bank on anderson for a good part of the first-half of the season......and obviously clarett is outta the picture.
    Anyone else have this problem? My mood for the upcoming week depends on if the Vikes won or lost on Sunday....it s an on-going cycle....
