Ravens | Anderson giving advice to younger teammates

Mon, 21 Aug 2006 22:20:29 -0700

Edward Lee, of the Baltimore Sun, reports Baltimore Ravens RB Mike Anderson has been giving advice to the younger running backs on the team. Running backs coach Tony Nathan said, "He's great with the group. He's been showing a lot of the young guys how to conduct themselves. He understands that we're all on the same team. ... We are all competing for playing time, and that's what makes us better." Anderson, a former Marine, has used his military training to help shape his approach to football. "In the Marines, you don't complain. You do as you're told. You don't quit and you lay it out there. There were times when I was [frustrated]. But I always believed in myself. I knew what I had to do, but when you're not the one calling the shots or making the decisions, it's kind of hard to do as you please. You just deal with it, and I dealt with it in my own ways," added Anderson. His optimism has been tested this preseason, as he's taken a back seat to RB Jamal Lewis and RB P.J. Daniels.

Wed, 02 Aug 2006 05:39:26 -0700

Gary Mihoces, of USA Today, reports Baltimore Ravens head coach Brian Billick has named RB Jamal Lewis the starter with RB Mike Anderson as the backup. However, that does not mean that Lewis will earn the majority of carries as Billick intends for Lewis, Anderson and RB Musa Smith to all be involved in the offense. Billick said, "I don't isolate starters, non-starters. It's about whoever is playing well. I don't have a distinct - Jamal is going to carry this many times. Mike and Musa (fourth-year man Musa Smith), they're all going to play. And I guess I've got to put someone out to start the game, and I guess that's technically the starter."

Wed, 05 Jul 2006 05:42:13 -0700

Matt Palmer, of the Baltimore Examiner, reports Baltimore Ravens RB Mike Anderson feels comfortable with the team's offense.

"Just looking at the Ravens over the years, they're a lot like the team I came from: very committed to wanting to run the ball. You just sit back and just enjoy the ride, as things unfold and take place. But you know some great things are going to take place."

Broncos | Shanahan talks about the running game

Fri, 05 May 2006 11:30:27 -0700

DenverBroncos.com reports Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan recently spoke about RBs Ron Dayne's and Tatum Bell's roles in the offense. "I don't know that you necessarily have to have a No. 1 guy. We rushed for over 1,900 yards last year in a rotation, said Shanahan. "You rank second in the NFL in rushing; you've got two backs that stayed healthy throughout the year; you have the speed/breakaway guy (Bell) who seems to be at his best when he carries the ball one to 10 times, and then you've got the power guy on the inside, and Ron will fill that role this year in place of Mike Anderson."
