Clady hears the criticism



FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Ryan Clady may not say much, but he listens.

Like all the Broncos' offensive linemen, Clady heard criticism from coach Josh McDaniels during the season's final weeks.

While defending the otherwise pedestrian rookie season of highly touted running back Knowshon Moreno, McDaniels said, more than once, the problem was less about the ball carrier and more about the lack of running room provided up front.

"He's the head coach, he's the boss, so you respect what he says," Clady said here this week after an AFC Pro Bowl practice. "As an offensive line, we were disappointed with how we played, especially in the second half of the season. I know we'll improve and be better next year."

In his second NFL season, Clady is already the cornerstone of the Broncos' offensive line. He was selected with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2008 draft to become the left tackle of the Broncos' zone-blocking scheme, and he will be the anchor of the team's pull, trap and power blocking scheme in 2010.

"Clady can play in any system," NFL analyst Ron Jawor- ski said.

"Whatever works to get us where we need to be, it's fine," Clady said. "I think we'll be able to improve and get better."

The Broncos felt Clady should have made the Pro Bowl as a rookie in 2008, but he still received the honor sooner than most by getting voted in as a starter as a second-year tackle.

"I've watched him on film, and it's no surprise that he's here," New York Jets left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson said. "He's had great years back-to-back. It's always good when you can have a young guy come in and have such an impact."



Just checking

There are two nose tackles who play in the 3-4 scheme on the AFC Pro Bowl team who are unrestricted free agents Pittsburgh's Casey Hampton and New England's Vince Wilfork.

Based on what the Broncos ask from their 3-4 nose tackles, Wilfork's style would probably be a better fit for Denver. New England, though, may slap Wilfork with the franchise tag, which could possibly put in play a trade.

Whether through trade or free agency, would Wilfork consider the Broncos and former Patriots assistant McDaniels?

"I'll weigh all my options," he said. "Right now, it's a waiting game."

He may have to settle for a 7 million dollar slap to the face.

I almost promise that he will get the tag. I would love to see him in denver but doubt that happens. I wouldn't mind getting that hairpulling biotch outa oakland he still has a few years left in the tank and I would love to see him finish them here.

I've read a few scouts comparing Dan Williams to Wilfork.

So far, he's the one impressing me in the draft.

I would compare him more to Ngata coming out then Wilfork. He not as athletic, but capable of doing more things then Wilfork style player.

No sane individual.

Hell, I'd give up a first and a third if that's what NE asks for.

7 million is the Franchise number for an elite NT?

what about Marshall for Wilfork straight up? i have read a lot about NE being a potential candidate for Marshall. Works for both sides.

Interesting, although having Marshall, Moss and Welker would probably be too much resource allocated to the WR position. Can't see them doing this unless they jettison Moss.

That would be a monumental steal in our favor.

I would hate for Marshall to be on another team and could see him coming back and torching our secondary and biting us in the ass

That's the number the googles gave me. I don't know if it's 100% true, but multiple sites said 7 million is the franchise tag hit for Wilfork.

that is a lot lower than what i would have guessed. i would have said something along 12 million for the Franchise tag on a NT.

how would NE not already have a deal in place for him at 7 million a year? that is just crazy on their part.

Probably because they are smart, shrewd, and don't give a **** about his feelings.

i'm not talking about the way the franchise operates or potential feelings. i am saying if an elite NT is only in the 7 million a year range, it is plain stupidity to not have him locked down long term.

Yeah, Clady made Knowshow hold out, and fumble, and fall down when a fingernail touched him! Good work McFly!

If BM goes, I want him out of the AFC.
