From the Shadows

First scrimmage is today. In a few hours as a matter of fact. This blawgger (and about every other Dawg fan) is anxious to hear how the tailbacks do without the training wheels.

We've seen some of what Caleb can do in actual games. Samuel as well. Thomas looked sharp at G-Day. Guess that makes Jackson and Ealey the wildcards.

Look how far we've come in just a year.

Last August the 5'11" Knowshon's shadow was large enough to swallow any RB behind him on the depth chart. The view from the sideline was surely quite choice for King, Samuel and Jackson as they watched the star juke, jive and hurdle.

But did it make them HUNGRY?!?

Many fans are eager to see one man step forward from the darkness the Broncos' newest Dawg left behind. Personally, I see the competition at TB as a good thing. If no one rises heads and shoulders above the others it could just as easily be a testament to how well we've recruited at the position as it is a strike against King.

I would once cringe at the idea of a committee. However, if different backs bring different skills and talents to the huddle, I think our offense can accomodate.

Where you at? Are you comfortable with the committee? Or would ya rather see one stud emerge to cast his own shadow? If so, who do you expect it to be?

UPDATE: Hale has the Scrimmage Stats up if you wanna take a more educated approach to your vote or comment.

Totally agree. Ware, Lumpkin and Brown was not a bad thing, and neither will this year's committee.
