If the D plays like they did against Buffalo, how many sack do we get this year. I really like having doom back and Von is a fricken stud already and at the half way point could become unstoppable.

So my question is how many sacks ??

This is the first time in I don't know how long I am excited to see what our D can do. I was like a little kid at Christmas watching that game. It made me realize how much I enjoy watch people get smashed.

BUF OL is dreadful and played even worse against DEN last week. Remember the week before the pass rush sucked. I would wait until about week 4 to see if they can really rush the passer with any success.

Well they won't always be going up against Erik Pears...

I think 20-25 combined is a good possibility if we were playing buffalo all year but really I'd hold out judgment until we go against a better OL.

I think we only Blitzed twice against Dallas. I have to think that with doom, miller and Ayers ( Yes I said Ayers ) that we could have a real pass rush,..

I really hope that are D goes back to what it was with Nolan running it. Pre-mcdushbag. If that's the case doom was our only pass rusher and he got 17. Now they will have to worry about Von and I think Ayers will come on too. At the end of last year Ayers was looking decent. This could be a scary little set up. I was thinking 45-55. I was hoping for 60. Maybe it's just my orange and blue glasses

I think we can average about two a game. So thats 32. Some games we will have more. Others less, but 32 seems to be the perfect inverse of what we did last year.

08-23-2011, 10:17 AM
I'm gonna say 16 from von doom combo, and ten from the rest of the team. so a grand total of 26

Didn't Miller have two, but one he was offsides?

Off Topic. Moss has a sack from Oak. Anybody sen how hes playing this year?

Looks as though Dareus COULD be the next Suh. he has looked really good at times this preseason.

60 sacks is 3.75 per game. I think that is doable. If ayers picks it up von, and elvis will get most of them. It helps to have a defensive minded coach.

I love your thinking. Not impossible to get sixty, San Diego and Baltimore were the last teams to do it in 2006. The Steelers led the league with 48 last year. I say we go for the record, which is 72 by the Bears in '84.

Me too. I don't think it is that far off. I think Elvis is good for one a game and from what I have seen from Von he is good for at least 1 a game. That leaves the rest of the team to get 1.75 per game and that should be doable because the focus will be on Elvis and Von.

I don't know about team totals, but I think people will be surprised with how many sacks D.J. gets in Fox's defense. I think we got a taste of how he's going to be utilized against Buffalo. A lot of edge rushing, a lot of cheating him inside, and overall getting creative with stunting him from the WLB.

Most years if you get two players in or near double digit sacks you are in the playoff hunt.

I don't want to be a downer, but in order for you to get league-high sack numbers, you need to either stop the run very well (ala Pittsburg) or have an extremely high scoring offense to force the pass (ala Indy back in their heyday).

I don't see our team being able to do either at the moment. I think top-12 numbers are possible, though.

It really shows in his play too. He no longer gets completely swallowed up when he doesn't get the edge. In the first two preseason games he's shown a real ability to detach from blockers.

Which is going to REALLY help in run defense, because now he can be a real asset in backside pursuit.

I had to create a new user to answer this question as i feel like we have a very good defense in a long time. If our offense can hold the ball for close to 50-55% of the time, our defense can have 40-45 sacks. But i would like to see 25 INT's and 15 Fumbles to go along with it. If all that happens, no matter how many pts we put or who our opponents are.. we will be playoff bound.

I find it laughable people are suggesting 45+, 50+ heck even one guess of 60.
The past 2 years the team leader in sacks has been under 50 total. And we are talking about elite of elite defenses here with proven guys.
Last year we had 23, I'm hoping a climb to average at least to say about 35.

No. It will be the exact opposite. High risk/high reward scheme right now and I am not sure they are going to hold up in the back seven against it. You KNOW the DL is going to get gashed and that's why you blitz or bring aggressive fronts into play. However, it will yield some big plays against capable offenses and even some bad ones when they counter blitz just like Dallas did in week one.

^ That

You can blitz, you can fire into gaps, you can run some 5 man fronts...

...And in doing so you can expect to disrupt plays and get after the QB

BUT you can also expect to get hit 30 yard screens, give up big draw plays, and often be at the mercy of a missed/broken tackle before it's off to the races.

26 is a low number that i hope they can get. Usually i am a half full kinda guy. Doom doesn't look nearly as quick as he once did. JMO We will have to blitz up the gut a lot or QBS are just gonna just gonna step up in the pocket. Unless by some miracle our DT's can put pressure on a qb and collaspe a pocket. which i dont think fox schemes that way he wants his tackles to clog.

See I used to agree with that 100 percent but that damn Mike Nolan proved me wrong. He had less talent then we have now, when he was calling plays for our D we were was ranked 7th. I think we were more like 3rd but what ever. Anyway when Mcdouchbag took over we went to 32 in the league with the same players. So if Fox is as good as Nolan and we have added players like Von then this could be freakin awesome. In fact I just got a chubby typing this.

Nolan's D worked til there was enough game tape on it. That's why the D wasn't effective late in that year because last third rely's on talent which Denver really was lacking.

See now I heard Mcdouch started calling plays or limited Nolan on what he could do. I would tend to believe that. Not saying we weren't lacking on talent I just think that our D is a lot better then people think. I think it was the coaching that put us in 32nd. I really like what I have seen out of our rookies and new pickup's also. I say we have a bangin D this year.

Slap me silly and call me sally, we're 3rd in the NFL in sacks right now with 27(although 30 other teams haven't played their 10th game so that probably will change).
2.7 sacks per game, puts us on pace for 43 sacks for the year, nearly double from last year.

I really hope that are D goes back to what it was with Nolan running it. Pre-mcdushbag. If that's the case doom was our only pass rusher and he got 17. Now they will have to worry about Von and I think Ayers will come on too. At the end of last year Ayers was looking decent. This could be a scary little set up. I was thinking 45-55.

When all is said and done, end of year I think the Broncos lead the NFL in sacks. Sounds good to me. For the longest time we were horrid at this. If you're going to beat the best teams in the league, you have to sack the QB.

I predicted 45 -50 I think I was right on track. People are getting scared of Von. This is opening Doom up and he will finish out the year with a ton. Go Broncos and Go Orange Crush !

i am loving the nastiness that Miller is bringing the last few weeks. it's like it all clicked for him and he is just unleashed in games lately. also the borderline dirty hits he has had the last few weeks, only work in his favor in making the opposing QB nervous that Miller is going to rattle his head free from his body.

I think the fact that Doom is starting to return to form is only making Miller better.

Doom has 5.5 sacks in the last 4 games. He is playing like the guy we paid that money too. Miller is over 10 sacks, third rookie to do that through 11 games. I think we are at 30 sacks total for the year.

I'm gonna say 16 from von doom combo, and ten from the rest of the team. so a grand total of 26

Didn't Miller have two, but one he was offsides?

Off Topic. Moss has a sack from Oak. Anybody sen how hes playing this year?

Looks as though Dareus COULD be the next Suh. he has looked really good at times this preseason.

Ill take being wrong with a huge smile on my face

With 3 more sacks Doom moves into a tie with Rulon Jones for 4th all-time with the Broncos with 52.5 for his career. Trevor Pryce is next with 64.

37 for the year already. We had 23 all last year. If we continue at this pace we might hit that 55 number I predicted ;D
