Don’t Forget About Phillip

The overwhelming consensus is that Melvin Gordon is the new king of the Broncos backfield but I’m still not a buyer. In two seasons Phillip Lindsay has rushed for over 2,000 yards and 16 TD’s. Lindsay has averaged 4.9 yards per carry over that period. The 3rd year back also added 10 pounds this off-season to help with his season long durability. Gordon on the other had one 1,000 yard season in his five year career and topped 4.0 yards per carry just once. Lindsay is an elusive shifty back and Gordon looks like he’s pulling a U-Haul trailer. The Broncos will take a while to realize and accept the mistake and I’ll be saying I told you so by mid-season. Gordon is averaging a late second round draft pick and it’s way to early.
