"I'm telling you, it stripped our offense and basically our team of a personality and an identity when he left," said Davis, who rushed for 7,607 yards and scored 65touchdowns in seven seasons with the Broncos. "It was amazing. I had never experienced that before. You're looking around in our team meetings, and it's quiet, and it's the same way walking into the huddle. John Elway left, too, but even when John left, we still had a personality and an identity with our offense, and Shannon was that guy. When Shannon left, it was night and day. It just didn't feel right."
