View Full Version : Ryan Clady is just beastly

Still recovering from the knee injury and knocking off the rust, he stonewalled Dwight Freeney today (the only time I noticed Freeney on a pass rush today was on a stunt where he came up the middle). The O-line is really in flux between injuries and inexperience, but this guy is just a rock. ^5

I was worried about this game because of Freeney's speed. I am just amazed a less than 100% Clady can still shut down the best speed rusher in the league. Just awesome.

Ryan Clady is a dancing bear, he has the quickness to completely nullify Freeney and the power to bury much bigger guy, he is a super star. I saw a few replays of Freeney and every single one was Freeney being stoned cold by Clady, either shut down right off the snap or pushed well wide of Orton.

Clady is the man.

Now, we just have to figure out who the other man is going to be.

Any premiere RT's available early rounds this coming year?

Ryan's recovery is certainly one of the best stories of the Broncos season thus far. I was fearful that the type of injury he sustained would be a killer for him since his greatest attribute is his quickness - thankfully he's looked better each week and it looks like he'll be the same player long term. I thought Beadles looked better in pass-pro and if, and it's a big if, Harris can't get healthy then Beadles may be able to slide in at LG. the big issue to me is the lack of push they're getting in the run game. I noticed a few holes Maroney missed but for the most part, just as it's been since the very first practice, the Broncos' OL gets stalemated at the LOS on nearly every running play. Hopefully with every game they'll get better but the Broncos won't play a weaker run defense than the Colts and Indy's run D stuffed us all day. Harris has to get healthy, he just HAS TO.

I'm not sure why we'd spend an early-round pick on a right tackle.

I know a lot of people around here are down on Harris, and his injury history is certainly discouraging. But when healthy, he's proven that he's one of the best right tackles in the league; our disparity in record with and without him last year shows how important he is to this team.

And I can hardly chalk this latest injury up to him being "injury prone." I mean, Buckhalter basically headbutted him in the back of the leg. Its a freak accident; blaming Harris for getting hurt like that is hardly fair.

And even IF Harris can never be healthy long enough to be our RT of the future (which is a bigger "if" than people think at this point; I still like his chances if RB's don't dive into him), Beadles' performance so far has been very encouraging. After a bad first game against Kampmann, he has REALLY improved in pass protection the past two weeks. Today he went toe to toe with Robert Mathis and definitely held his own; not bad for a rookie making his third start at a position he didn't play at for most of the preseason.

Between the two of them, I just don't think we need to go looking for a RT in the first day of the draft next year. I would be all for drafting some late round O-Line backup, but given our needs on the defensive front, I don't think we can justify spending a high pick next year on a tackle. We've got enough young talent at the position in my opinion.

I think first day picks should be OL and DL, exclusively this coming draft.

RT is a big need. Harris can't play football. The routine has run its course, and I'll guarantee you the staff is pondering options for next season.

Disagree. The concern was his bad back that has not been an issue. He is out due to a freak accident that would have sidelined any player on the team.

Our line gets better every week...the young guys are coming along quickly...time to get the run blocking cleaned up...this team is on the verge of a break out. Their offense is sick between the 20's and when we figure out how to score in the redzone and run the ball with just a little more consistency things will turn fast. The loss yesterday sucked, but if people can't see how close we are to becoming a very good team, then they are just hating.

Not trying to sugar coat anything, our run game is stinking it up right now...I was blaming the oline the first two weeks, but this week our running backs just flat out missed the holes that were being opened...an McD really shiat the bed on the redzone play calls and thinking we could just pick up every fourth down we faced, but you can see this team is starting to play with confidence and consistency on both sides of the ball. Cox had some terrible f-ups and the position he plays only magnifies them, but he is a rookie and that was his first start...this kid will be a good player with some more reps, just like this young oline, he will grow.

the next few games are gonna be tough as hell, but I believe this is the best thing for this team right now, they need to see the level these teams are playing at and then try to equal them!

Please see Exhibit A below for what happens when you nail a non injury prone OLineman in the back of the legs.

Excellent take.

In defense of Josh 4th down calls normally you would take the field goals but I suspect he felt he was playing a far superior team and to win he had to take a few chances. I think he calls the game like a chess master would, that is accounting for many variables beyond the field such as strength of opponent.

He felt the Broncos needed to take this game and we almost did.

Really liked the rest of your post.

Come on Bean I'm pretty sure you know that is apples & oranges.

Harris may turn out to be physically fragile but I think the verdict is better held until the end of this season. He could go 10 years without another injury or he could be get injured every other game. How he gets through this season will determine if he is a Bronco next season or not is the way to go.

Quiet, you! It was the perfect excuse to post that clip. Not only does it feature the same exact player taking out an OLineman in the back of the knees, but it actually shows us successfully converting a goal line running play.....something everyone here desperately needed to see.

I do agree though.....it's now on Harris to bounce back from this one and show that it's just a freak thing. If he goes down so much as one more time, though, before the end of the season....I don't care if it's a supposed "freak" injury or not.....my mind will be made up.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I've seen a little more success running to the right over Beadles than I've seen running to the left over Clady.

I don't think so. He's playing well at RT.

Well, if Harris comes back maybe Beadles is a better LG than Daniels, but I don't have a problem with Beadles at RT. Maybe one more 2nd, 3rd on the OL next year solidifies the OL for years. Daniels looks about the same as Beadles did at LG. LG is not Beadles natural position, but he can play it.

I guess the bottom line is Beadles is a versatile player.

If he turns out to be a stud RT his future is there, better draft another G to plug in at LG than move a really good RT.

Right now, I would have to say that DL and ILB are the biggest needs we have. Haggan really came on yesterday, but I think that is in large part due to Dawkins manning up on Clark a lot leaving Haggan to bump the TE and play the run, that is what he does.

DL definitely needs to be addressed, Vickerson seems like a decent rotational guy as does Thomas, Bannan can start, but Mcbean still doesn't look good and Williams is playing on borrowed time.

I dont have a problem with his pass blocking, but the couple plays I was thinking of were running plays where he literally got pushed backwards like 2 yards
I also remember Daniels getting pushed back and against Seattle Daniels actually got pancaked into Moreno

He's still is a bad fit for the running game McD likes. So he will probably be traded.
