No No Knowshon?

I wasn't living rich and I also wasn't poor
I try to appreciate but I deserve more...

Over the past few days two All-Pro level running backs, LaDainian Tomlinson and Bryant Westbrook have been released and are now on the open market. Are the buzz cut ears of Dove Valley interested in either?
LT would be an intriguing addition to the Donks, mainly because he has been the villian in Charger Powder Blue for so many years. If the Broncos were interested you'd have to think that they would be LT's top choice so he can stick it to the Chargers. These damn superstars and their damn egos usually supercede all other contract stipulations. Yet, LT to Denver has Tony Dorsett 2.0 written all over it.
Westbrook would be the ultimate weapon in McHoody's system. A versatile running back who can immediatley contribute to the short passing game. And what goes better with the term "short passing game" than Kyle Orton? Espeically with the prospect of Brandon Marshall being jettisioned, that mid range passing looks even more important (read: the Donks won't be stretching the field.) Could adding Westbrook help grease the dreaming wheel that is Donovan McNabb in the orange and blue? Westbrook's wrench is that you'd be getting the bruised and battered player of today, not the same player that ruled in Fantasy Football for the middle of the decade. And with his concussion history, it might not even be a plausible option.
However, the biggest reason that neither will be joining Mini Belichick's squad is the current Donk RB, Knowshon Moreno. Not because he is firmly entrenched at the position, but because the Donk brain trust spent a top-15 pick on him last year. Less than a year out, that pick is looking more and more sketchy with his lackluster pass routes, limited blocking (see Knowshon on passing downs much?), and diminishing yards as the season wore on.
It's been said that McDaniels looks at all options to improve the football team and get the best players on the field. But is is he ready to admit his first draft pick isn't one of those best players less than a year afterwards?

Even though I hated the pick, especailly given the fact that Orakpo was so good, I think most Denver fans and media are being way too hard on Knowshon.

He's a rookie learning a hard as shit system, running behind a terrible run blocking line.

I expect him to look much better this year.

As for the other two, while they might be able to help, do we really expect either of those guys to be happy in a two back system?

Westbrook would be terrific in Denver. He needs big time medical clearance. He knows wheres hes at in his career and that 90% of the league goes 2 backs, he would thrive. Expect LT to go the same route as Emmitt in Ariz.

But Im sure he'll sign a one day contract and "retire" as a Charger in 2013.

"Short range passing game" is a whole lot easier to pull off when the secondary believes your QB has the ability (or your coach the willingness) to stretch the field. Just ask Knowshon how much Ed Reed believes in Orton's arm.

Ed Reed would make a stellar brake man in bobsled. Orton? Not so much.
