  1. Nice to see Denard convert to running back. He has the build for the position. I actually remember saying I thought this would be ideally his best shot at a NFL roster.

    I do think one of the reasons the RR offensive era wasn't as good against the better programs was Denard was such a poor thrower. Just look at the Arizona qb. He is a much more complete college qb which is what RR needs to have his system succeed at the highest level.

    Don't tell me the offense was great under RR against the better programs because it wasn't. At Arizona it is much better because of a qb who can throw and run. Too bad UM couldn't combine Forcier and Denard.
