Terrell Davis spent seven years in the NFL with the Denver Broncos. During that time he won two Super Bowls, rushed for more than 7,600 yards and took home an NFL MVP award in 1998. He joined Chad on Flight 750 Friday to look back upon his great NFL career and to discuss the opening week of the NFL season.Davis first talked about the great play from second year pro Russell Wilson.
“The way he was brought up or the way he conducts himself on and off the field just seems to be pretty nice for the Seahawks. I think they have something special with him.”
Davis also talked about the current running back situation for the Broncos.
“You’ve got Ronnie Hillman back there. His issues have been holding onto the football of late. And he’s not as good between the tackles as Montee Ball. Then you have Montee Ball and his downside is that the pass protection is not quite where it needs to be right now. The most balanced guy out there is Knowshon Moreno who can do it all. He can block. He can catch the ball out of the backfield. And he can run.”
And finally Davis reflected on his favorite memories from his time in Denver.
“We had a lot of fun. We just had a lot of fun. When I look back on those teams, the thing I think about the most is just the locker room – Going to work and having Shannon and Keith Burns and Alfred Williams and all these guys basically just have this comedy hour for us. And we would have this every day. Then we would go out to the football field and it would be all business and football. But at the same time, we were still having fun and playing around.”
Take a listen to the great interview and be sure to look for Davis and his work with NBC Sports throughout the season.
