Golden Nuggets: Things I have been wrong about

When you throw opinions about players around before and during training camp, there is a chance you could be wrong. Here are a few things I was wrong about.

  • Joe Williams would be a contributor as a running back this year.
  • Raheem Mostert is a good special teams player but he is not really an NFL running back.
  • Jonathan Cooper and Joshua Garnett would be our right and backup offensive guards.
  • Mike Person would make the team as a backup center.
  • Ahkello Witherspoon and Adrian Colbert would step up in the defensive backfield.
  • Solomon Thomas would start to carry his weight on the defensive line.

I was wrong. How could that have ever happened? I am pretty sure I am the only one that has ever been wrong around here but if someone else has ever happened to be just a smidgen wrong about anything and would care to share, there is plenty of room in the comments below. I will be beyond amazed, perhaps even dazed and confused, if anyone was to step forward though.

I really have to disagree with Breida being a surprise. We knew he could run, it was more of a matter of being a dual threat running back along with his durability that we questioned. I did become a believer that he will make a good running back combination with McKinnon when he returns though.

Hopefully the smog clears enough for fans to go run with Roger Craig. How about that Kittle? The guy just keeps on getting it done. It is nice to see our future star quarterback is off of crutches. Anyway, enough rambling, onto the hot links:
