Agreed. This will be the last we see of him in a Donks jersey, but I'm glad he finally turned it on (and has managed to stay healthy). Dude's a gamer. Somebody will pay him some decent coin.

All due respect, that's just silly talk to say he's not talented. His talent was never the question--he has it in droves, as well as the athleticism. It was whether or not he was smart enough, strong enough, and most importantly, DURABLE enough to make it in the NFL. Despite the fact that I thought he was a bust from the get-go, I'm happy to say I was way wrong.

When an RB has many dimensions to his game, he has talent. It's big pluggers like Jacob Hester who only know how to run up the middle who aren't talented.

I'd hate to lose Knowshown just as he's finally starting to "get it".

I'm for keeping KM.

We were playing with fire early in the year with Ball and Knowshon, especially when Ball really had that fumbling problem.

I'd hate to let Knowshon go and then Ball doesn't perform. In this day and age you really do have to have 2 good backs.

I thought Dmac from the Fan said that rumor wasn't true about KM?

Regardless they should be leery of anyone who only turned it around in a contract year. Haynesworth is the horror story there.

About a month ago in his Monday Morning Quarterback column on SI.com, Sherman said Manning was among the more intelligent quarterbacks in the league. He also wrote: "His arm, however, is another story. His passes will be accurate and on time, but he throws ducks."

Sherman has stood by that analysis this week. As did Manning.

"You can see he's a smart player," said Manning. " I do throw ducks. I throw a lot of yards and touchdowns-ducks. So I'm actually quite proud of it."

Moreno was great last year too when they finally put him back in the lineup.

Those Seahawks sure are cocky aren't they?

I understand it's the Super Bowl but why do they have to hold a press conference every day. There can't possibly be one original question left on the planet and useful has passed long ago.

You hadn't heard that story? His mom got 20 for refusing to rat out his grandmother. The cops came to take her away one morning and she begged them to let her take DT to school one last time. He said its his goal to still be playing when she gets out which is in like 2-3 years. His uncle raised him.

I'd rather give a big bag of money to DRC than either of them. I don't know if I want to keep Decker around once Manning retires. Moreno is a big question mark for me, finally put a solid season together but wonder how many 16 game seasons he has in him.

The Nuggets really need Lawson to play tonight. He missed the last game and then Robinson went down, leaving Fournier and Foye to run the point. Needless to say, it ended poorly.

Lawson also should have been an All-Star, but for some reason they decided to take James Harden. Harden is easily a better player, but the guy plays shooting guard. They took him as a point guard.

DRC can barely read a book I've heard, but yikes he is such a good corner. I dunno what to do with that guy. Very risky. He could easily be the best corner in the league but he could also be a total contract year -> laziness guy.
