Sit Wolf, Play Ayers!
 
Anyone else think we aught to play Ayers over Wolf? Ayers has been awfully impressive lately, and like so many mane memes wolf is taking a dump!

DBroncos4life 11-11-2012 07:51 PM

Good god no, they can be on the field at the same time.

Atwater His Ass 11-11-2012 07:54 PM

With doom's status unknown, Ayers will be seeing the field more now anyway. Also Jackson seemed to get more playing time as well.

broncocalijohn 11-11-2012 07:58 PM

Maybe more Holidey too. Why not Brick Osweiler at Qb? Willis Magahee might lose his job too to Ronny Hilmen!

LongDongJohnson 11-11-2012 08:12 PM

Wolfe hasnt done much this year so I wouldnt mind.

Cosmo 11-11-2012 08:39 PM

Yeah, we're a top 5 defense right now because Wolfe has done nothing. You all are stupid.

Ayers at Dooms spot is fine until Doom is healthy. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

11-11-2012 08:46 PM

Hearing mike florio after the SNF game it doesn't sound like doom will be back anytime soon. Said John Fox doesn't have a good feeling about the MRI tomorrow.

Looks like Ayers will be taking over for at least a few games

11-11-2012 08:46 PM

Could it be that Ayers just plays better at right end? Maybe he had trouble adjusting to playing the left end. Or was Carolina's line that bad today?

Not good news... Hope it's just a strain, then he may be good to go for the playoffs.

This was the worst game for injuries. Miller, Thomas, Dumervil, and Manning even came up gimpy after that awkward slide.

Torn labrums are four week to four month recovery. That's not good.

True, not good but I'd take that as long as he is back 100% for the playoffs

Lestat 11-11-2012 10:06 PM

no, Wolfe is doing fine and getting some nice pressure on the QB and when he can't he's getting his hands up and trying to knock the ball down.
Ayers needs to stay hungry and keep earning that PT.

of course with Doom out he'll likely end up as the starting DE opposite Von(well, you know what i mean).

Where is that speculation coming from though? It wan't good that Fox said he is uneasy about the results tomorrow but I missed the labrum. That is no bueno.

ZONA 11-11-2012 10:51 PM

I don't know where that speculation is coming from either. All we "know" is that Doom said he felt a strain but didn't hear or feel any pop. I don't know but that sounds encouraging to me.

Manning looked 'gimpy' because his kneebrace got twisted a bit when it augured in on the slide. Not an issue- it was the brace.

Kinda funny looking back on the replay and seeing his brace leave a divot in the grass.

Yup, I've seen that happen quite a few times in both NFL and College from both QB's and linemen. Not an issue. Glad to see the thumbnail is not bothering him either.

Maybe Ayers is doing well because he is getting rest from the rotation that is being used. I think he'll be getting more playing time he has earned it.

Out of the 11 starters on defense id say wolfe has contributed the least.

Mike Adams says hi.

Good god people.

Right now Wolfe is giving us the kind of production we got out of Ayers last season. Very good run D and flashes of pass rush. I would even say Wolfe is doing a tangible amount better at generating pass rush than Ayers could last year. This is what he's doing as a rookie. Wolfe is a valuable part of the DL rotation.

Ayers is starting to step it up and he definitely should start getting in the mix more, but that doesn't mean you just sit Wolfe. I'd rather see them get Doom off the field more (assuming he's even healthy now) on potential rushing downs and get Ayers on the field along with Wolfe in nickel and dime packages when possible.

Ayers stepping up doesn't mean we drag Wolfe down, just that we look for more opportunities for Ayers to contribute.

Carolina's line is absolute garbage. The Broncos were gang-tackling Newton yesterday.

11-12-2012 05:45 AM

Where on earth is this torn labrum talk coming from?

Torn labrums are not four weeks... No way no how. The good news, he could possibly play with a torn labrum. It will limit his arm range of motion which is bad for a player like Doom. But, it could put him into a 3rd down specialist type of role which isn't necessarily at bad fit. If he decides to have it repaired through surgery, it's at least 10 weeks and that is super aggressive. It took me 6 months and I specifically asked my doc and PT how long a professional athlete would take to recover. They said with twice daily therapy, possibly 2-3 months.

Ed Reed is playing through a torn labrum right now as well... If it is indeed a torn labrum.

Also, if it is a labrum injury, he would be risking a dislocated shoulder as the labrum is what secures the shoulder's AC Joint. Kind of a small tendon that overlaps the socket to hold everything tightly in place.

Agree! I think Ayers in the lineup opposite Wolfe makes a lot of sense. It will definitely help vs the run.
