We can talk about improving the defense all we want. It’s the Broncos top priority in the draft and in the free agent market. However, it’s hard to ignore the fact that the Broncos running game is a thing of the past. After Clinton Portis left, the hype surrounding the Broncos once famed/feared run attack disappeared.
