Broncos' running back rotation is complicated, Mike McCoy explains

Broncos' running back rotation is complicated, Mike McCoy explains

Bad news for opposing defenses and fantasy football owners. The Broncos believe they have three running backs capable of starting in the NFL, but only one of them is on the field at a time. C.J. Anderson is clearly Denver’s lead back, but the rotation behind him — and the rotation in general — is hard to figure out. Jamaal Charles is a speedy weapon but the Broncos want to keep him fresh — perhaps that’s part of the reason why Devontae Booker received three more snaps than Charles last week. If you’re looking for a straight answer on how Denver plans to rotate their running backs...

Vance Joseph wants Jamaal Charles to get ‘more and more touches’

Vance Joseph wants Jamaal Charles to get ‘more and more touches’

The problem is, Jamaal Charles is getting fewer and fewer touches with each game. On Wednesday, Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said the plan was to get Jamaal Charles more touches in games. “That’s always the plan with Jamaal as we go forward in the season,” Joseph said of Charles. “He’ll get more and more touches. So, yes.” There is one problem with that statement. Charles has gotten fewer and fewer touches as the season has gone on. The Broncos appear to be doing the opposite of what Joseph said the plan has always been. Perhaps the lack of touches is more due to...

Broncos RB Devontae Booker making a case for more touches

Broncos RB Devontae Booker making a case for more touches

For the first time this season, Broncos second-year running back Devontae Booker was on the field for more offensive snaps (23) than veteran running back Jamaal Charles (20) in Week 6. Both Booker and Charles are still trailing C.J. Anderson (38) in snaps, but Booker could be in line for more touches after leading the backfield with 80 yards from scrimmage last week. Granted, many of Booker’s seven touches came late in the game — he racked up some “garbage time” stats — but it would be silly for Denver to ignore the Utah product’s production. Plus, giving Booker more carries would...

2017 NFL Picks: Week 6

2017 NFL Picks: Week 6

Praise Jamaal Charles that the bye week is over! Let football officially resume. Okay people, talk me off the ledge here. For a guy who does predictions for a living, well, metaphorically for a living, what in the wide world of hell is going on this NFL season? The teams who are expected to win, and win easily, lose or struggle. The teams that are crap are winning (except for the Browns). I just don’t get this season, and its apparent in my going .500 last week. At this point, I’m about to throw a bunch of chicken feed on the ground and just have a damn chicken pluck the ground to...

Who is Broncos' offensive MVP one quarter through the season?

Who is Broncos' offensive MVP one quarter through the season?

We’re four weeks into the 2017 NFL season which means it’s time to hand out some quarter-season awards to Broncos players. Today we’re presenting three candidates for Offensive MVP honors. 1. C.J. Anderson, RB Thanks in large part to Anderson’s 330 rushing yards, Denver currently ranks No. 3 in the NFL with 143 rushing yards per game. Anderson looks healthy and he’s running well, averaging 4.5 yards per carry. Using Anderson as a workhorse back also keeps Jamaal Charles fresh, giving the Broncos a dynamic duo in the backfield. 2. Ron Leary, OG Leary and Domata Peko were arguably...

Broncos offense ranks No. 3 in rushing entering Week 5

Broncos offense ranks No. 3 in rushing entering Week 5

The Broncos have the third-best rushing offense in the NFL at the quarter mark of the 2017 season. Denver is averaging 143 rushing yards per game, which trails only the Jaguars (148.8) and Chiefs (163.5). The Broncos rushed for 143 yards in a 16-10 win over the Raiders on Sunday with C.J. Anderson (95 yards), Jamaal Charles (33 yards) and Devontae Booker (14 yards) splitting carries. That three-headed backfield should cause plenty of problems for opposing defenses this season. “I thought C.J. played really well [against Oakland], breaking tackles, ripping off big runs,” coach Vance...

Chiefs’ Kareem Hunt is on pace for 2,000 rushing yards, breaking more NFL records

Chiefs’ Kareem Hunt is on pace for 2,000 rushing yards, breaking more NFL records

The Kansas City Chiefs’ Kareem Hunt put up his third 100-yard rushing day and continued to hammer away at the Chiefs and NFL record books. Let’s take a look at a few of the numbers that Hunt hit on Monday night. Current numbers: 502 rushing yards, 157 receiving yards Rookie rushing yards: Hunt is on pace for 2,008 rushing yards, which is exactly 200 more yards than Eric Dickerson’s record for a rookie running back. Consecutive games with 100-plus yards from scrimmage to start career: Hunt is the fourth player since 1950 with 100-plus yards from scrimmage in his first four career...

Kareem Hunt has been peak Jamaal Charles for the Chiefs

Kareem Hunt has been peak Jamaal Charles for the Chiefs

Great point this week by 610 Sports’ Carrington Harrison who said that in the same offseason that the Chiefs lose Jamaal Charles they pick up Kareem Hunt, who has basically been peak Jamaal Charles through three weeks this season. By that I mean the three games we’ve seen from Kareem Hunt so far this year is arguably as good of a three game stretch as we saw from Jamaal when he was in Kansas City. I went back and looked at Jamaal Charles’s career numbers and tried to find a three game stretch that’s comparable. I found two (and I’m probably missing one really obvious one so point...

Future Broncos: Running Back Stable Reinforcements

Future Broncos: Running Back Stable Reinforcements

C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles have had success early on rushing for the Broncos this season, but should the team consider upgrading their running back stable early in the 2018 NFL Draft? It has been a while since the Denver Broncos have enjoyed such a successful rushing attack early on in the regular season, but it is certainly a welcomed sight for Broncos Country who have been wishing for a dominating rushing attack for quite some time now. The last time the Broncos had a 1,000 yard rusher was in 2013, when Knowshon Moreno rumbled for 1,038 yards, but it looks like that drought may end...

Charles still has the ability to make magic happen when he touches the ball, so give him that chance with more touches. The MHR Radio Podcast is now on iTunes, Google Play and Stitcher.

C.J. Anderson: Feast or famine in 2017

C.J. Anderson: Feast or famine in 2017

C.J. Anderson is breaking off some big gains, but is also struggling to pick up on the shorter runs. C.J. Anderson is currently 5th in the league in rushing yds. That’s good. I like it when Denver has a running back who is at or near the top of the league in rushing yards. It reminds me of my childhood when Mike Shanahan could take a cell-phone salesman from the mall and turn him into a 1000-yard rusher. The issue with C.J. is that he has been very erratic this season while Jamaal Charles has been consistent. See the histogram below of run distances and number of runs so far this year by...

Andy Reid on how much the Chiefs are using Kareem Hunt

Andy Reid on how much the Chiefs are using Kareem Hunt

It is not too long ago that KC Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was having to answer questions about the amount of time running back Jamaal Charles was touching the football per game. When Charles was healthy, he was the Chiefs’ best skill player. Of course, he’s now a member of the Denver Broncos—and no longer Reid’s problem. But Charles’ name came up Monday when Reid was asked about rookie Kareem Hunt. Our own podcast host, Shawn Barber, has mentioned before that he does have some concerns about Hunt tiring once it gets later in the year. College teams play 12 games. NFL teams hope...
