CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Beating you no longer suffices for the Broncos. Now they want to break your spirit and dance on your soul.
"We've got a lot of crazy guys," Denver linebacker Von Miller said Sunday, after the Broncos not only ran Carolina out of its own house in a 36-14 victory, they piled on the style points and disrespect.

The Broncos are showing themselves to be a complete team and getting better every week in all three phases.
One of the best things McD did in his short time running the Broncos was losing enough to allow Elway and Fox to draft Von miller.
I agree with the article....this team is getting better as the season goes along and is playing with some swagger, which I like.
If one of the 3 units has an off day and isn't hitting on all cylinders, the other 2 units have been stepping up and taking care of business.
A sign of a good team is one that might be a little off (like the offense yesterday), but still has the ability to go out and finish teams off.
The key now for John Fox is to keep them from getting big heads and keep them hungry and motivated. I'm not worried about that on the offensive side of the ball, as Peyton Manning will keep them focused and in line, but the defense needs to keep playing with a chip on their shoulder and a nasty demeanor.
Whatever they are doing to motivate Robert Ayers, they need to keep doing it, because he is playing like a wild dog.
Elvis Dumervil will probably be out for several weeks, if not the season....Robert Ayers has the ability to come in and a play a more well rounded defensive end and keep the defense playing at a very high level.
With Dumervil out, the defense will miss his big play ability....the sack and forced fumble potential he brings on every passing play, but Ayers has the ability to make the defense more stout.
All that said, I really hope Dumervil is able to come back in a few weeks, as Denver needs as many weapons and combinations, as well as depth, that they can utilize on defense. This defense reminds me of the 1997-1998 Denver defenses in that they are great at playing with a lead and pinning their ears back when they know teams will be passing. The ability to bring Von and Elvis after the QB at the same time will be missed....when those 2 are on and closing in on the QB at the same time, it's bad news for opposing QBs....and a lot of fun to watch for Denver fans.
