    Very good signings for them.

    Much better than Shanny who thought he could take any ol' running back and have a great running game.

    Arrington = Faulk (in terms of role)
    Buckhalter has been underused in Philly because Reid is allergic to the running game.

    Early on in his career I thought Buckhalter might really amount to something.

    Unfortunately, he has had some injury issues, but that is a good pickup.

    If that. Not very impressed with Arrington.

    Arrington is no Kevin Faulk.

    He has good straight line speed, but Faulk is a champion.

    He's a shifty little bugger as well.

    Telling, though about the offense he plans to implement. Both are guys who can get involved in the passing game. Good screen backs, good wheel runners, good flat route guys.

    Denver's offense should be pretty damned good. They've got Marshall, Stokley and Royal, they've got Graham, Wiegmann and Clady, they've got Cutler and Arrington,... that should add up to one hell of a passing team as long as the rest of the crew can even be average.

    I don't expect them to be only 16th in scoring this season.

    I totally agree two great pickups at RB and I bet they did not spend too much for these two. Both of these RB needed a change of scenery and I think will improve Denver's offense right away.

    It's been updated. They've lined up those guys for visits. No deals have been signed yet.

    Buckhalter had also been injury prone. He went like 3 or 4 straight seasons ending up on the IR.
