    How many teams won the SB or went deep in the playoffs with a RB that ran for 2000 yards? I can tell you... 1 the Broncos. Henry running for an extra 500 yards was great for him but I don’t think it would have cost us 2 wins. We need to throw more. Henry got a lot of yards this season after the game was decided, when he was just putting the other team to sleep.

    Henry running for about 1500 to 1700 yards is about right in his prime. I think he can do that for a few more years if he stays healthy. He doesn’t take a beating like a lot of RBs do. I think he can have a similar career to Dickerson. I think he has 5 top tier type productive seasons left. He keeps himself is crazy good shape.

    The cap is going down to around 183-185mil and that isn't the floor that is the top end number that everyone has to be under.

    This is a horrible time to be a mid-level free agent....I just hope that JRob can find the right bargain guys. I think we will see a bunch of summer time FA signings this yr. Guys will try to hold out for the best deal they can get and then finally give in and sign.

    I disagree.... what do you base that number on? A feeling? Insider info?

    One agent said the expectation is the cap for 2020 will at least remain steady. Another agent said he expected it to touch $200 million. Another was planning for $195 million.

    That’s what I’ve been saying. It will be alright. The sun will come up tomorrow.
    We will sign JJ Watt and draft a Edge in the first round. Keep our FAs and run it back.

    We literally just need to fix our situational defense with more pressure on 3rd downs and we are a legit SB contender.

    Not a fan of the term "deep run in the playoffs" because it's subjective to an extent. BUT just for informational purposes:

    73 Bills (OJ Simpson) went 9-5 which did not qualify for post season
    84 Rams (Dickerson) went 10-6 WC loss to the Giants
    97 Lions (Sanders) went 9-7 WC loss to the Bucs
    98 Broncos (Davis) went 14-2 SB Champs
    03 Ravens (Lewis) went 10-6 WC loss to the Titans
    09 Titans (CJ2K) went 13-3 #1 seed, Div loss to Ratbirds
    12 Vikings (Peterson) went 10-6 WC loss to GB
    20 Titans (BDH) went 11-5 WC loss to Ratbirds

    We can probably cover the various reasons why each team lost.
    I don't see a RB running for 2K as a bad omen for the team and their success in the post season.
    Behind Denver, the next best 2 scenarios are from the Titans (both record wise and playoff distance).

    In this brief statement you just made multiple NON absolutes.
    1. We sign Watt. Lots of other teams interested.
    2. Draft an Edge. I hope so, but JRob has thrown the curve before
    3. Keep our FAs. We just discussed cost on another thread and other teams may be interested.
    4. Fix our situational D. We just promoted the bonehead that was responsible for the terrible situational D.

    Do I need to write IMHO in front of everything I write? Isn’t it implied that it’s an opinion or my guess? Like it is for most of us. Like the guy saying the Cap will be $183 million. He doesn’t know that. He thinks that.

    I disagree with you about Bowen, He may turn out to be a disaster. Hope not. But he wasn’t solely responsible for last seasons problems. Injuries and bad free agent signings had more to do with it. He called plays. That’s it. He was also doing 2 jobs as well. Now he can put all his time into developing a defense and a scheme. I think and have always thought it was bad to not have coordinators. Not having a stand alone coordinator did more to hurt last season from a coaching stand point than who the coach was.

    He may have been involved in the robbery but it wasn’t his plan. He was just driving the car and didn’t shoot anyone. Let’s see what he does when it’s his plan. It’s all on him now.
