Yeah, yeah; both of the previous Broncos Re-Focused articles mentioned Von Miller, but if he keeps turning in noteworthy performances, well, heíll continue to be noted! Miller did get fooled by former Broncos TE Daniel Graham for a touchdown when Graham feigned staying in to block before jogging into the end zone for an easy TD reception, but that was one of the very few instances this season in which he has actually looked like a rookie, and truthfully any veteran could have been fooled by the play call. Besides that mistake, Miller made some plays in coverage, including snuffing out a screen for Britt. He also recorded a sack and again played excellent run defense. Millerís athleticism is no wonder, but his instincts and technique bely his inexperience. Interestingly enough, it has been his block-shedding, coverage skills, and awareness on the field that have been Millerís greatest strengths thus far in his young career, despite many critics proclaiming that the Broncos wasted their pick on a 4-3 SLB if they didnít intend to move him to DE or convert back to a 3-4 defense and make him a rush linebacker. SAM Ďbacker might not be the most important position on the field, but Miller has the potential to be the best at the position for years to come and already leads our 4-3 OLB rankings with a 12.6 overall grade in three games.

Hmm, our offensive line still sucks it says.

I dont know how accurate this is. I dont know what their metrics for grading linemen are but Beadles and Walton are the lowest ranked players in their grading system at their position in the freaking league.

Awesome.

Yeah....what Rock said. I find the ratings for Beadles and Walton more interesting than the Miller praise (cool as it may be). I had heard some positives for them this game up until this point.

The offensive line does still suck. Clady has played average at best and outside of Kuper going nuts last Sunday, I've seen nothing to get excited about.

I can't read websites formatted like this without causing my eyes to bleed. What am I doing wrong?

PFF seemed a little harsh on Walton & Beadles. We didn't have a great game running the ball, but Orton wasn't under much pressure most of the game.

Not for nothing but MHR is a Broncos centric Bleacher Report.

No kidding. It's pathetic that a veteran QB needs a rookie and 2nd year OL to play very well just so he can play decent.

It works both ways, how about actually stepping away from the pressure, using a quicker release, or even attempting some intermediate passes to push the defense back to help out the OL Kyle?

1) Sophomore Slumps

While many Broncos fans may want to pin the teamís woes on Orton, the truth is the Broncos offensive issues start up front. Orton is no Pro Bowl QB, but he can play decently when heís not under pressure. When he is under pressure, though, he can force some bad throws such as the overthrown pass to Eric Decker that resulted in Ortonís first interception against Tennessee. The Broncos offensive line needs to play better, and while rookie RT Orlando Franklinís struggles are to be expected, the time is now for the Broncos two second-year offensive linemen. LG Zane Beadles and C J.D. Walton earned -3.8 and -3.9 overall grades respectively for their efforts Sunday, leaving them the lowest-ranked players at their respective positions in our grading for the season. Having one lineman that is the lowest-ranked player at his position is a setback, but having two is a major problem. This team isnít going to get better until its O-line does.

yes but the guy that wrote that, writes for another site. He just reposted it there.

I'll fully admit I am clueless on Line play so I'd defer to the Med's and other guru's here first.

So according to this guy our lineman averaged a grade of 85.3 out of 100, but McGahee only rushed for 52 yards on 22 carries (2.4ypc) and got stuffed three consecutive times from the 1 yard line with the game on the line. :hitself:

The guy that wrote the article is a Chefs fan. But dont fret, he was a defensive coordinator for a high school team once so he knows his stuff.

ĒMinus the goal line stand, we were 2-for-2. So, we're improving. Now it's just getting the sense of urgency and getting everybody to do it right, and then I think you'll start seeing 35 points on the board rather than 23." - Neckbeard

Are you kidding me you fraudulent journeyman joke of a qb.

Since when are we 2 for 2, well except for that one... Who says that?


& when did we put up 23 effing pts?

This dude and dove valley are spinning lies or drunk, ko is so delusional about his skill level, just wow. http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_19000691

I remember reading that thinking "Oh boy, this is going to cause a stir once we get a non-homer analysis by others"

What do you know, Beadles and Walton show up as awful.

the oline scoring low on some stupid websites rankings? Oh no!!! Someone correct me if I'm wrong here but this oline has 1 rookie, 2 second year players and 2 seasoned vets. This is the first year they've all played together at these positions too, AND (try to stay with me on this one because it's super complicated) they are in a new offense.

this oline will take a little bit of time to fully gel but they are getting better.

Probably fapping too much.
