Demarius Thomas showed up today. I think he's going to be a very good #1 receiver in an option offense.

Edit - a bunch of shout-outs:

The Good:
Demarius Thomas
Von Miller
Elvis Dumervile
Rahim Moore

The Bad:
Zane Beadles
Andre Goodman
Linebacker coverage

The ugly:
Cosby

Ball is a wash. He showed up but fumbled.
Champ played decent, but below his level and doesn't belong on either list.
We were outcoached today. We were playing our game in the 1st, then the game got out of hand.

Yeah, Tebow is a one WR guy. Now he goes 90% of the time to Thomas..........and Decker has completely disapeared!

They do need a speedy compliment at WR. That role should be going to Royal, but he's done nothing in 3 years, so not holding my breath he is the answer.

I'd take him back as a return specialist.

I think he winds up in Washington next year.

They should be using Royal as the return specialist all the time as I have mentioned many times this year, but for some reason they seem to think they need Crosby.

Might just be that DT is the only receiver we have with elite physical tools that help him get open on a regular basis.

He pairs well with Tebow in that the others are timing-type WRs, and Tebow doesn't have the physical skills to throw a timing pattern yet.

Are you a Tebow fan boy or something?

The Broncos are running an offense that fits his skills... a run around the field "get open" offense kinda like the Steelers.

I was merely making a comment that this is why Thomas has come alive and the others have sort of dropped off.

Tebow can't run a similar offense to Brady, and vice versa.

I believe in Tebow. He's not Brady... yet.

I can only remember one completion on a timing route, and I think it was an out route to Thomas.

so you've never seen tebow throw a timing route? maybe he did and he got lucky?

for ****s sakes, physical skill has nothing to do with throwing a timing route.

There was another on ...maybe it was an in route to either Deck or Thomas...i think it was thomas...either way, ball was delivered before the receiver was out of his break and it was on target for a first.

You wouldn't consider throwing accuracy, release point, footwoork, and reflexes a physical skill?

And he's getting better at them. That's still where a lot of his incompletions are, wouldn't you agree?

of course it means something, but as this level you have to expect a certain amount of skill from your QB's.

Tebow was the most accurate QB in college football history so I expect the same when he developes more chemistry with his WR's and spends more time in this offense.

He seemed to be really snatching the ball with his hands in this game. He looked strong when he turned up field too. I think the kid is finally starting to get healthy. If he can develop into a consistent number one receiver, it would be huge.

By which measure? Percentage and td-int ratio? I agree.

But the windos are smaller in the pros. He'll get better, but his percentage is still pretty low.

All I'm saying - going back to the subject - is that DT fits his skillset for the time being.

Looked like the Pats were rolling safety help to Decker (of course limited viewing angles of CBS) leaving DT single covered most of the day - and he was eating them up.

Considering the middle of the field was being raped all day by the TEs and Goodman/Harris were struggling on the other side, it's not really that insane at all.

Denver stayed even until they started coughing up the ball - then it went a bit south. All in all, though, good game by a middling good team against a better team. I like the way Denver is nearly staying in every game.

I feel that Tebow is progressing, but how come Decker didn't get any balls thrown his way? Is Tebow too slow in making his second read on time? He's improving each week, but it's odd that Decker has suddenly pulled a Royal.

Carter and Moore both played like Rookies and Dawkins not playing was a key to Bradys passing.

IMO neither of them were even adequate and they got schooled repeatedly.

Carter was horrid and gets the "Roc Alexander player of the game" award for that game. Too slow, too late and too out of position.

I know the replays where you could see downfield - there weren't many guys running open.

Or catch a ball that hits him in the face.
If Moore catches that, he gets another 15 yards probably and maybe scores truth be told, and huge momentum for Denver. But no, it pegs him in the face and he looks behind him wondering what happened as the ball bounces in front of him.

Also, for the love of god run screen passes on offense and short routes. We aren't a down the field passing team, so stop with the routes designed to take time and go down the field.

Decker disappeared? Hmm that's weird, I saw him blocking down field a ton to open up spots for DT. Team player. "A player is not measured in stats"

On slo mo replay, it was pretty clear that the receiver tipped/deflected it. He would've easily had it if it came through clear IMO.

If he hit him just a few inches higher the ball probably would have popped out. But probably right into the arms of one of the Pats...
