- Champ Bailey - Put Santonio Holmes in a box...only 4 catches for 39 yards.
- Von Miller - Dude was a menace to NY in every way.
- Elvis Dumervil - He was in the backfield all night, and made two huge plays.
- Tim Tebow - Accounted for 92 of the 95 yards and the TD on the game winning drive.
- Andre Goodman - His pick 6 kept the Broncos within striking distance...nice veteran read on the ball, excellent snag from the bobble.

I don't know if people realize just how good of a game that Von Miller had last night.

10 tackles. 9 of which were solo tackles.
4 hits on the QB
3 tackles for loss
1.5 sacks
1 pass defensed (a near-pick from point blank range in the red zone)



...all that from an OLB who is getting moved around the formation. A rookie OLB.

That was the type of completely dominant performance you expect from a veteran all-pro.

Man, Miller is a freaking beast. I really didn't see him having this kind of impact this year. I expected about half of this production from a rookie. But holy all Tebow, the guy is freaking great.

The Broncos taking Miller was showing they planned to be unconventional with their defense since most agreed Miller was more a 3-4 OLB, but the Broncos planned to use both 3-4 and 4-3 defenses and move Miller around.

The same for the offense with Tebow, they will become unconventional as well, but they are having to do this on the fly and not have had any camp to work on the offense, so I guess that is the biggest reason for the conservative play calling. A full training camp would help Tebow, not to mention a RB or 2, and receivers that know how to get open and catch the ball and not running 5 yard patterns all game.

I'd add Cassius Vaughn. Had a stellar return and was a demon on kick coverage.

And he forced the fumble on the lucky Jets touchdown.

He is straight up sick. QB's really should start fearing him if they don't already. Even with the patty cake rules he is delivering game ending blows to the QBs.

Though I did wish that he had just taken a knee on his next few returns instead of getting tackled inside the 20.

I agree that he had a good game overall, though.

No, that's the type of performance you hope for a few times a year from a veteran all-pro.

Colquitt gets a game ball. He made a huge difference in this game. Did you notice how many of his punts just stuck where they landed? That punt to the one foot line was amazing.

Colquitt has been huge in this run of ours. Him combined with the D right now gives us a huge advantage in games.

I disagree... no one expects a veteran all-pro to have THAT good a game!

Anyone besides me get reminded of the then famous interception by then rookie Atwater in 1989? I believe it was against Shanny's faiders, and the QB was Schraeder. Shanny was fired shortly thereafter. Anyway, Atwater made the int. and it completely changed the game.

Atwater went on to become the anchor of the Broncos defense for years.

While Miller obviously didn't pick it off, the play was very similar, and I think it is already obvious that health permitting, Miller is going to be the defensive anchor for a decade or more.

Tebow was seen on the side line placing those punts with his eyes...

he should of had a couple more punts pinned near the one if it wasnt for some bad coverage near the goaline.

I would add Colquitt. Dropping on the 20 or better all night long.

Defense - there wasn't a man on the field who had a bad night. Bunkley owned Mangold in the middle, Marcus Thomas was strong against the run, Dawkins and Carter both had solid coverage and good tackles against the run and pass, Woodyard was good all night and forced the fumble on the long kickoff return, Mcbean and Ayers both got pressure on the pocket, Goodman obviously with apick 6 and good coverage, Bailey and Harris both solid in coverage.

Yeah. Bunkley must have been messing with Mangold's head. Did you see that long snap over Sanchez' head? :rofl:
