C.J. Anderson on Working With Gary Kubiak: “It Fits Me Well”

While the whole world waits to see whether Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will return next season, one Bronco is excited about the 2015 campaign.

Running back C.J. Anderson, who broke out late-season, had some positive comments to share about the upcoming season and working under new Broncos’ head coach Gary Kubiak (via the Denver Post).

I have known about his system for a while, and what he accomplished. One cut downhill and go get it. It fits me and the offense well. It’s always been successful. He knows the team we have and what we can do. I can’t wait to get started working with him.

Anderson’s excitement is appropriate, especially considering Kubiak has operated a run-heavy, one-cut ground attack throughout his career. First, he helped Arian Foster break out as the Houston Texans head coach. He then coordinated a Ravens offense last season that saw Justin Forsett accumulate nearly 1,300 rushing yards.

While the Broncos wait on Manning to make his decision, there really is no doubt that Anderson will be the central focus of the Broncos’ offense. Anderson’s 682 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns since taking over the starting gig in Denver in Week 10 saw him surpass all his running competition over that period of time.

We can only assume Anderson’s success will continue under a run-heavy coaching scheme which would also take the pressure off Peyton Manning should we be seeing him around in 2015.
